Make Your Old Smartphones Into PC

In Gadgets on September 30, 2013 at 08:36

Smartphones are  PCs.

You can use your old Smartphone you are about to throw into a PC.

Steps:

First, however, you need to turn off cellular data. Otherwise, your phone will drain your battery trying to find a signal. On an iPhone, go to Settings>>Cellular. For an iPad, it’s Settings>>Cellular Data. Turn Cellular Data off.

In Android, swipe down from the top of the screen and look for the Mobile Data icon. You also might have a widget on your home screen.

Otherwise, go to Settings and under Wireless and Network, tap More Settings>>Mobile networks and uncheck Mobile data. The steps could vary by manufacturer, so check your manual if this doesn’t work for you.

On a Windows Phone, go to the App list and go to Settings>>Cellular. Turn Data connection to Off. Make sure “For limited Wi-Fi connectivity” is set to “Don’t use cellular data.”

Now it’s time to turn it into something else. The easiest option is a portable media player…

You can use that as a GPS,Alarm Clock,Gaming Unit,Kitchen Recipe Holder and WiFi  Phone.

There is a Video that one takes with a Smartphone poses a security risk as it reveals your location details and other data.

The YouTube video has gone viral and there are reports that this news item is a Hoax.

I checked and found that this is not a hoax.

The information seems to be authentic,

As I am a non technical person, I advise caution.

Story:

Original Story:

Warning” If you, your kids or grand kids take pics from your phone—WATCH THIS!

This is truly alarming – please take the time to watch. At the end they’ll tell you how to set your phone so you don’t run this risk!

PLEASE PASS THIS INFO TO ANYONE YOU KNOW WHO TAKES PICTURES WITH THEIR CELL OR SMART PHONE AND POSTS THEM ONLINE.

I want everyone of you to watch this and then be sure to share with all your family and friends.

It’s REALLY important info, about what your posting things on your cell phones can do TO YOU!!!

Too much technology out there these days so beware………..

PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO WATCH THIS VIDEO, AND TAKE THE RECOMMENDED PRECAUTIONS.

If you have children or grandchildren you NEED to watch this. I had no idea this could happen from taking pictures on the blackberry or cell phone. It’s scary.

 ANY plane in the air at that exact moment, and display information about that plane, its type, speed, origin, destination, etc. Even private aircraft, and at times, even be in the cockpit observing the instrument panel, or look outside the flight window.

At any given moment, you can actually see in real time, literally every plane in the sky over any area of your choosing anywhere in the world.
Now you can see why an aircraft traffic controller is one very, very busy person.

The information will tell you who is flying the plane, and where they are going.

In the left hand column, there is a box called “planes.” The number in the box is the number of aircraft airborne. This view is what the traffic management people see for planning purposes at the various airports.
What type of plane, airbus A320,330,350, where it originated, and where is it going, what altitude, what speed, what company etc.
A few things you can do;
You can drag the map to change the area you want to view, then zoom in by tapping with your mouse.
On the map you will see all the planes in the air.

Click on an plane, and on the left screen you will get the flight information, airline, type, speed, altitude in real time, re-calculated every 10 seconds.

On some flights you can also click on the ‘view from the cockpit’…
Thanks,Ram.

Google Glass Porn

In Gadgets on July 25, 2013 at 17:56

Google Glass discouraged Porn Application

However,

Google Glass.

Google Glass view

Google couldn’t stop them from hiring porn stars to don the wearable technology and, well, do what porn stars do, and that’s exactly what happened. What would a porn shot with Glass look like? The trailer is a good indication without showing any actual porn, though the language is still pretty filthy and there’s a lot of moaning, so remember — NSFW.

Weirdly, this video does a decent job of showing off what Glass is capable of, but it also has fictional elements… to help move the story along I guess?

Porn stars James Deen and Andy San Dimas (oddest Bill & Ted reference ever?) use Glass’s long-since-cancelled facial recognition capabilities to identify each other. Deen also uses Glass to give him X-ray vision, but as far as we know that was never intended to be a feature. I might be missing the point here, but I kind of would have preferred it if they stuck to what Glass actually does.

Video is not posted here as it is NSFW.
