Some useful tips to charge and preserve the Mobile Phone charge,
Increase Time between Charges
Turn the phone off. This will probably be the most effective and simple way of conserving your battery’s power. Why? This will help conserve energy and also charge your phone. If you don’t plan on answering the phone while you’re sleeping or after business hours, just turn it off. Do the same if you are in an area with no reception (such as a subway or remote area, since constantly searching for service depletes the battery fairly quickly.) Some phones have an automatic power save feature, but it takes about 30 minutes with no service to kick in. By then, much battery power has been used. If you don’t need to receive or make calls but are using a smartphone as a PDA, disable the phone functionality (flight mode).
- Stop searching for a signal. When you are in an area with poor or no signal, your phone will constantly look for a better connection, and will use up all your power doing so. This is easily understood if you have ever forgotten to turn off your phone on a flight. The best way to ensure longer battery life is to make sure you have a great signal where you use your phone. If you don’t have a perfect signal, get a cell phone repeater which will amplify the signal to provide near perfect reception anywhere.
- Follow the method of full charge and full discharge. Don’t put your phone on charging when there is the battery remaining it for another few hours unless it’s very important. Charge it when your battery is about to get totally discharged and when you put it for charging, let it get charged totally. OR Do the opposite – Some Articles  indicate that with Lithium batteries, doing shallow discharges and frequent charging prolongs battery life.
- Switch the vibrate function off on your phone, using just the ring tone. The vibrate function uses additional battery power. Keep the ring tone volume as low as possible.
- Turn off your phone’s back light. The back light is what makes the phone easier to read in bright light or outside. However, the light also uses battery power. If you can get by without it, your battery will last longer. If you have to use the back light, many phones will let you set the amount of time to leave the back light on. Shorten that amount of time. Usually, one or two seconds will be sufficient. Some phones have an ambient light sensor, which can turn off the back light in bright conditions and enable it in darker ones.
- Avoid using unnecessary features. If you know it will be a while before your phone’s next charge, don’t use the camera or connect to the Internet. Flash photography can drain your battery especially quickly.
- Keep calls short. This is obvious, but how many times have you heard someone on their mobile phone say, “I think my battery’s dying,” and then continue their conversation for several minutes? Sometimes, the dying battery is just an excuse to get off the phone (and a good one, at that), but if you really need to conserve the battery, limit your talk time.
- Turn off Bluetooth. It will drain your battery very quickly.
- Same goes for WIFI, GPS, and infrared capabilities, if your phone has these features built in. Keep them off except when you need them.
- Turn the brightness of the display to the lowest setting possible.
- Use GSM rather than 3G – Using your phone in 3G / Dual Mode will drain the battery quicker than if you just use GSM mode – have a look at your phones spec and you’ll see it will quote two different battery life times – normally 50% more for pure GSM use.
Save a wet Cell Phone.
Take the phone out of the water as soon as possible. Ports for hands free kit, tiny hole for microphone, charging, usb cable connectivity and the plastic covers on cell phones even though tight can freely allow water to enter the phone in a just a few seconds of time. Grab your phone quickly, and turn it off immediately, as leaving it on can cause it to short circuit – if it has been in water, assume it is waterlogged whether it is still working or not.(wiki How)
Recorder is this magic pen that converts your written notes into electronic files and then transfers it to your phone and computer via Bluetooth. I think it’s a great idea and can actually encourage us writers to take to the book and pen more often. I bet authors and illustrators will love it too! My only wish – it auto spell checks the files.
Mind Control is a fascinating subject
In the Eastern Philosophies Mind, unlike the Occidental Philosophies,is considered to be an Organ like the other sense organs.
The more the vibrations, subtler the object becomes.The Mind vibrates at a Higher Frequency than Matter.
Therefore it is not perceived by the sense organs.
If the sense organs were made to tune to the higher frequency of The Mind or The Mind made to vibrate at a lesser frequency to match the sense organs ,then the communication is possible.
However, these systems state that neither is possible.
But one Mind can be made to tune into the wave length of the other Mind.
The principle behind this is that there is a Universal Mind and the Individual Minds appear to be so because of TIME ,Space and The Vaasanas( the unique remnant traces of actions performed either through Mind,Words, or Actions)
They have discovered that it is possible , by practice and determination the Mind can be made to oscillate at different frequencies and thus enables one to achieve Clairvoyance, Clairaudience Kinestasis,Telepathy and Transcending the barrier of Time and Space.
The Buddhists are adept in these functional area and many of the Lamas practice this even to-day.
Now The Chinese seem to have a developed a Mind Controlled Drone, which obeys Mental Commands .
This seems to be based on a Theory not explained .
The theoretical base is to be examined.
To get the drone to raise or to land, a user would need to “think left” hard. “Think left lightly” if you want to rotate clockwise and “right” if you want it to lurch forward. Give it a lift in the air by thinking “push.” And imagine clenching it if you want to bring it back down to earth.
But moving around is not the only task it can do. Remember how they tell you to avoid blinking when taking photos? Well here it’s the opposite: blinking is the command that tells the drone to photograph its environs.
The video shows a man in a wheelchair using the technology to get a closer view of flowers, to take pictures and even to guide his drone through a battle with another quadrotor controlled through a handheld remote control. Needless to say, mind triumphs over matter and the hand-managed drone is hustled off the mat by its thought-controlled analog.
The students hope their technology will be able to help disabled people become more interactive with the world around them, and are slated to present their invention at the ACM International Conference on Ubiquitous Computing (Ubicomp), which will be held next week in Pittsburg.
While handicap assistance and gaming is one potential application for the system, only the imagination can limit the potential uses mind-controlled drones could have in the future, both for civilian and other purposes.
