7 Tips To Beat Procrastination For Bloggers


7 Tips To Beat Procrastination For Bloggers
Doubt and Inconsistent thinking are the behavioral patterns responsible for Procrastination. Regret, Anxiety and constant brooding are the consequent behavioral outputs of Procrastination. What is commonly evident is a sort of confusion and apprehension that things will not work out, inspite of your best efforts. It is pre-decided that, no matter, ‘how well you do to put in your best effort’ – you will fail!

BUT (and this is a big but) LET US NOT FORGET THAT WE CAN WALK THE PATH FROM NOTHING TO SOMETHING, AND SOMETHING THAT MATTERS! ONE STEP AT A TIME! THAT IS HOW WE LEARNED TO WALK AND TALK AS KIDS, RIGHT?

In this article, we will study the 7 measures to counter procrastination by maintaining coordination between the mind and the body. The maintenance of mind to body coordination essentially means that: ‘the way you think in your mind’ and ‘the way you act with your body’ can be ‘balanced’.

1) Self-Reflection

What is Self-reflection?

Self-reflection is necessary to counter the tendency of doubting that good things will happen to us. Self-reflection essentially means: Talking to the ‘Self’ and telling your mind about the plan that you have for next year, next month, next week or even the next day. You can self-reflect to decide about your course of action for the next day. This habit of questioning your mind and getting the answers will lead you to the fine habit of ‘knowing where you stand and how you can progress’.

How to commit yourself to Self-reflection?

It is necessary to reflect upon your own thoughts and understand – ‘where are you going wrong’ and ‘where are you going right’. This method of observing your actions and learning from those actions is worthwhile, rather than regretting the past.

It is easy to tune into the self-reflective mode. All you have to do is contemplate and believe in the greatness of your mere existence and great things will begin to happen. If you begin to appreciate the smaller things in your life then you will value your own existence. And once you understand, the real meaning of value, you will certainly value your time, work and the satisfaction that you receive from the action of doing the work.

2) Difference between a ‘drop of water’ and the ‘ocean

It is often difficult to view the big picture and recollect its beauty; but committing to the self-reflection activity mentioned above will certainly help in viewing the big picture. However, first do not try to look at the big picture, it is for later. First, it is necessary to experience small beginnings and learn from them. The difference between a ‘drop of water’ and the ‘ocean’ is that the ‘OCEAN IS GRATEFUL TO KNOW THAT IT IS SO BIG, AND YET IT WAS A SMALL DROP OF WATER ONCE; WHEREAS, THE DROP OF WATER IS ALSO GRATEFUL TO KNOW THAT WITH THE HELP OF OTHER WATER DROPLETS, IT WILL ALSO BECOME AN OCEAN SOMEDAY’!

3) Commitment

The act of committing yourself to action is the effort required from ‘thinking about doing an action’ to ‘initiating the action’, and ‘maintaining consistency in action’. It is necessary to acknowledge that – ‘we as humans can commit ourselves to doing anything we want. And hence, we can either remain idle or become the being of action’.

Did you ever wonder why you continue procrastinating? It is bad enough that we procrastinate but why do we continue doing so every day without fail. The reason is simple – we continue doing so because we are creatures of habit. Hence, if we can remain idle for days, then we can also remain active for days, weeks and months. A habit once formed is difficult to break and hence, if we commit ourselves to forming the habit of putting in little effort everyday then big results will certainly follow.

4) Reasoning

Simply asking ‘why’ to your mind will give you enough answers. And if questions bother you a lot, you should only acknowledge them. I am not saying ignore questions or forget about questions. The basic characteristic of mind is its consciousness and consciousness can be experienced in every moment of the life. Consciousness can be perceived in your ability to think. Your effort to commit yourself to reasoning, self-reflecting and believing will bring success when you begin to envision clarity. This clarity will further strengthen your ability to self-reflect reason and believe in the cause.

5) Write it down

Writing down random thoughts can also make you feel lighter. Your mind is free to flow in any direction with its thoughts and hence it is essential to control it. A mind cluttered with unnecessary thoughts can make you feel burdened with complexity. Writing down your apprehensions is another way of countering the negative beliefs and sowing the seeds for the fruit of wisdom. DON’T GIVE UP! BECAUSE IT ISN’T OVER UNTIL IT’S OVER, YOU ARE STILL BREATHING! AREN’T YOU!

6) Less Planning, More Action

Many of us have the habit of doing too much of thinking and planning to the minutest detail. However, ‘Thinking without doing is similar to nothingness’. Hence, it is said that action speaks louder than words. Even understanding this phenomenon is enough to bring ourselves into the action mode.

7) Your work is a set of first steps taken to reach your goal

The ideal end product of your work is success. And your work is nothing but a series of individual steps taken to reach a goal. These series of steps will make you strong enough to accept and appreciate the power of success.

Thus, we should get our beliefs right and take those small steps to gain bigger results. RESULTS ARE A PRODUCT OF OUR UNDYING SPIRIT OF APPRECIATION TOWARDS OUR EXISTENCE. WE BELIEVE WE EXIST AND SO WE DO!

Seven Ways to Prevent Software Viruses from Infecting your Personal Data


Seven Ways to Prevent Software Viruses from Infecting your Personal Data
Computer viruses are manifested through software programs that replicate and infect other computers. Normally these are spread through emails and data transfer devices such as flash disks. Other than infecting your computer or laptop, viruses can be transferred to your cell phone, e-reader or tablet. So long as these gadgets can get into contact with the internet, they are always at risk. A viral attack can lead to a malfunction or expose your personal data such as the passwords you use. If an intruder gets hold of your password he/she can hack into your phone or emails.

There are three basic ways to steer clear of viruses:

  • Avoid opening email attachments from people you don’t know
  • Always use sites that are trusted when downloading files
  • Scan suspect documents or devices that you use

Below are some measures you can take to prevent viruses from getting into your personal data:

1. Exercise caution when opening email attachments either from your phone or tablet. The same way you treat suspect attachments with caution when working from your computer should be replicated in other gadgets. If you get an email from someone who is not in your mailing list, don’t open it. Do the same in case the message title or sender’s name looks suspicious.

2. Be on the lookout for links that look questionable. These are normally sent through text or email messages. The people who send them are spammers or hackers. Some do this on purpose with the intention of establishing whether that email address has a user. Once you open it, some trigger is raised on their end and they get an opportunity to either spam your mail box or send viruses. Others may not be aware that their phones are infected. You can try sending a text to the sender to inquire whether he/she sent the link. If the person is genuine and honest you will get a response and an apology. Otherwise, delete such messages instantly.

3. With respect to applications, download only those that are legitimate. You can tell whether a store is legit by reading online reviews about it. Since there are many people looking for mobile phone applications, some malicious people have taken advantage by spreading viruses in form of fake games, social networking applications and financial tracking apps.

4. While using Bluetooth, apply undiscoverable settings. There are viruses that pass through Bluetooth connections. This is a tricky attack. If you walk near a device and your connection is in discoverable mode, the virus in the infected device can easily be transferred to your tablet or smartphone. Currently, there are some malicious viruses that disable your phone and steal your contact details.

5. In order to protect your smartphones, iPhones, e-readers and tablets download anti-virus applications. These can be obtained from trusted providers. Make sure the company you source the app from is well known. Examples include Lookout Mobile Security app and SmrtGuard Solutions’ Snap Secure app. These help protect iPhones as well as provide data backup. The applications are available from Lookout Inc. There are a host of many others.

6. For Android phones, you should be able to get reliable anti-virus such as Kaspersky Mobile Security app. This incorporates spam and virus protection. Other examples are Norton Mobile Security and Bullguard Mobile Security. These protect data during an attack, theft or loss of your phone. You can download them online.

7. Look for anti-virus applications that help secure your personal information from falling into the wrong hands. Some can help keep track of your phone while others rid your phone’s memory from a remote location. This works well when someone steals your phone.

Nokia Lumia 830: Top 5 Pros and Cons


Yesteryear’s mobile king Nokia has again brought in another new member to its very popular Lumia family, the new Lumia 830. The Finnish mobile major is really indebted to this highly successful range for resurfacing in the intense international mobile war. Though Nokia has quite recently entered the Android smartphone market, it still depends on its prowess in offering superb Microsoft Windows based phones.

The new Nokia Lumia 830 aims at reducing the price gap between the mid-ranged and high-end phones. Though its price is more on the midrange, the Lumia 830 comes with a premium look and good quality camera. It is successor to the Lumia 820, but is a big upgrade when various features and form factors are concerned.

The Nokia Lumia 830 is also the first phone to come preloaded with the company’s latest Denim software update.

While the Lumia 830 is a great new phone from Nokia, it has both good and not so good factors. Check out the top 5 Pros and Cons of this new smartphone:

Pros of Nokia Lumia 830:

  • Nokia Lumia 830 runs on the latest Microsoft Windows Phone 8.1 Operating System that comes with many advantages.
  • Lumia 830 packs in a great attractive 5.0 inch IPS LCD high capacitive touchscreen display with multiple touch capability, Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection and a Clear Black display that is really remarkable.
  • It offers fast and smooth performance with its good hardware specs comprising of a Quad-core Cortex-A7 processor clocked at 1.2 GHz of speed, and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset. The smartphone comes with 16 GB internal storage and microSD card support for memory expansion of up to 128 GB.
  • It comes with a great 10 MP primary camera at the back which is highly efficient and dependable.
  • It offers premium looks with a highly stylish and sleek body, not to mention Nokia’s patent sturdy built quality. The handset is also available in the attractive color options such as orange, green, black and white.

Cons of Nokia Lumia 830:

  • Though its screen looks great, the phone offers only average screen resolution and pixel density.
    While the smartphone’s primary camera is really great and efficient, the handset comes with real puny 0.9 MP front facing camera which would not convince or impress the modern age selfie lovers.
  • The smartphone also comes with a rather inefficient 2200 mAh battery pack which is really not enough to support the large 5.0 inch display of the handset. Thus, do not expect the battery to offer great backup, though daily average usage should be handled effortlessly.
  • The phone offers pretty good hardware specs, but its average 1GB RAM is really not impressive as most mid-ranged phones come with 2 GB RAM.
  • Though the latest Windows 8.1 Operating System is great, the Windows OS based smartphones do have their own limitations and still has some way to go in order to be able to achieve the great capabilities of the quality Android phones.
Now, let us consider the new Nokia Lumia 830 and look into its various important aspects.

Build and Design

The Nokia Lumia 830 is a patent Nokia mobile phone which boasts of great design and sturdy quality. The handset’s design is very stylish and offer a premium feel. One of the primary highlights of the Nokia Lumia 830 is its quality metal frame and very sturdy, solid built. Though the Nokia Lumia 830 is not the first Lumia model sporting a metal frame, the model takes the charm to the next level. The phone looks and feels as tough as a tanker, but is trendy and sleek to look at.

The handset comes with a removable back panel made with polycarbonate with slight curved edges for great grip. Nokia Lumia 830 is not only a good looking smartphone that also rock solid and durable. Moreover, even with its big 5 inch screen it is quite pocket-able.

Display

Nokia Lumia 830 packs in a good 5 inch IPS LCD display with 720x1280p screen resolution. Nokia's Clear Black technology is really cool and the deep black display is very impressive making the Windows Phone's dark theme really stunning. The Lumia 830's display is very bright and vivid with crisp images and texts. Though offering low resolution compared to even mid-range phones, it offers very good quality display with unnoticeable pixilation. The display is quite nicely visible even under strong sunlight and offers great viewing angles.

Software

Lumia 830 runs on the Lumia Denim which is actually the latest version Windows Phone 8.1 along with Update 1, and it also includes some of the great Nokia exclusive features. Windows Phone 8.1 is simply a notch above the previous version. It has rectified all inconsistencies of the past and is now an able contender of the smartphone platform giants like Android and iOS. Though it still might not impress the heavy smartphone users, the casual users will be fully satisfied with its performance.

Camera

The Nokia Lumia 830’s primary camera at the rear is an impressive one featuring 10MP 1/ 3.4-inch sensor, f/2.2 aperture, Zeiss lens and PureView technology. Camera offers great optical image stabilization. The camera module also packs in 6-lens optics, a true 16:9 sensor and Backside-illuminated image sensor, all of which together make of superb pictures with high detailing and great clarity. Its meager 0.9 MP front facing secondary camera will not impress the selfie fanatics, but it does the job of basic selfies and video chats.

Performance

The Nokia Lumia 830 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz supported by 1GB RAM, which are more mid-ranged, but does pretty good job. The phone has a great 16GB memory, expandable to up to 128GB with the help of a microSD card.

Conclusion

The Nokia Lumia 830 with its great style, built quality, display, camera and many other plus points is definitely worth a buy, especially as it is more affordably priced at Rs. 28,799.

Blogging Via Instagram

Blogging Via Instagram
They say a picture is worth a thousand words and they are probably correct when you look at how the popular Instagram is. You can resist it all you want but visual blogging is the new blogging. Maybe you are a bit old school and like to express your opinions through words, as it is easier for you to get your point across. That however, doesn’t mean you should cut out Instagram completely from your blogging toolbox. It doesn’t mean you have to change your blogging style altogether. It simply is just another opportunity where you can build an online presence and lead new viewers to your blog. Below are some tips to help grow your blog through Instagram.

Make Sure You’re Easy To Find

People have a tendency to be lazy. So if you make it hard to navigate back to your blog they most likely won’t ever find you. Make sure all your information, including a direct link to your blog, is easy to find in your Instagram bio.

Keep It Professional

With social media being an extension of our every day life it is easy to blur the line between work and play. If you are using Instagram to push your work remember to keep it professional and not to have too many personal pictures. Unless that is what your blog is about otherwise you might consider having two accounts to keep things organized.

Don’t Overuse Hash Tags

Many people tend to overuse hash tags because they think it will make them more visible online. That may be true but it also makes you look unprofessional, a novice and desperate. Get creative with your hash tags and come up with relevant and unique ones to describe your images. This will help with encouraging like-minded people to view your blog.

Create A Hash Tag Challenge

We’ve all witnessed a host of Facebook challenges that have gone viral on our newsfeed. Instagram has been known to have more new users sign ups then Facebook and has the potential of reaching a larger amount of people. You can use this platform to generate engagement and get viewers to your blog. An example of a hash tag experiment that gained lots of attention is the #HungerChallenge which encouraged people to post photos of them living off less then five dollars a day to promote awareness for people who often go hungry. Collaborating with people helps build your presence online as well as connect you with similar minded people. This is a great way to get attention to your blog.

Don’t Buy Instagram Likes

It’s not a secret that you can now buy like and followers on all social media platforms. However I would advise against this as it is obvious, it turns real users off and it’s a waste of money. If you work hard at building your brand you will organically build loyal followers who care about what you have to offer. Buying likes for an Instagram photo from a dodgy site does nothing for you other then increase a number. In the long run it is not helpful with gaining you real viewers.

Above are just some suggestions on how to promote your blog through Instagram. It is important that you try and experiment to see what works for your viewers, as all industries are different and require different techniques. Happy snapping!

Creating Online Business Profiles


Creating Online Business Profiles

Business profiles are all about identity but in this case, it is the digital identity since it is online. Business profiles define what potential employers are going to have as their first impression of you. Getting this information right strongly impacts the likeliness of winning a job or completing a sale as compared to someone who appears as a ‘joker’ in the eyes of the employer. Depending on your achievements, the client should view all the aspects indicating you are the right organization for the job.

You may have two business profiles so that each has achievements that are related to its own specific job-line. The other profile could have the achievements for another job-line. This helps in separating your various capabilities and not to appear as a jack-of-all-trades in the eyes of the potential employer or client.

Factors to consider when creating a business profile:

Several factors have to be considered in creating that professional look online.

  • First and foremost, your name describes you. This goes hand in hand with the job you are applying for. You should aim to provide a title that is hand in hand with the job or at a lower level.
  • Only present truthful information on your business profile. Clients are known to often take random sections of information, or claims of your achievements and countercheck them. Having wrong information or unverifiable information on your business profile may not help you in such a case.
  • You should also include a referee or two who are well aware of your achievements and your technical experience. It is good to have such referees coming from your field of operations or expertise. It defeats the purpose if you are in the construction business nad you have a referee in the medical field.
  • A client has to have a means of direct contact. It is therefore wise to add your phone number in the profile. Clients may want to talk directly to those applying for a job so as to determine who is available. Social media can also be incorporated. Not all social media sites are advisable. Limit yourself to the professional oriented sites such as LinkedIn. This helps identify how well connected you are. It also helps the client to contact you in a more private manner unlike the ‘noisy’ social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter.
  • Pages like Facebook and Twitter are not advisable to be included since they don’t reflect much on your professional life. However, customers may want to snoop around on your business life as it defines character. Facebook is one of the most common social site used and with its service of timeline, a potential employer can have a look at your postings and picture updates from as early as when you started using the social site. You may have to restrict access to content or even better. Ensure that postings that are not relevant to your business are deleted. A bad impression can be made by such postings and cost you a potential client.

Finally, you should get people to access your online business profile as it increases the chance of a potential client accessing your work. Get a digital signature and link it with your postings on social media sites for people going through your postings to have access on reading your profile.


What you see is what you get. This is one the most outstanding thing that will be reflected from your online profile. Profile pictures should be captured right in sober mood and in the right attire. Avatars should strictly be a disregarded too as they tend to reflect you’re hiding something. You can also include a few professional photos of yourself or the business premises. Have a photographer take the photos and avoid making edits to the photos.

Myths Related To Seo On Wordpress.Com

Myths Related To Seo On Wordpress.Com
If you are a diligent blogger striving hard to make a place in web blogging, naturally you will want to achieve SEO on WordPress.com. If your blog has achieved Search Engine Optimization (SEO), it means that sophisticated search engines like Google, Yahoo!, MSN will link your blog to a keyword when someone searches it on internet and will display it among the top 10 results. For e.g. your latest blog is on patriotism. Now if your blog has achieved SEO, it will be displayed among the top 10 results whenever anyone makes a search for the word 'patriotism'. And thus your blog will be visited by users more frequently.

To achieve SEO, you need to increase your site's SERP (Search Engine Result Page). You can accomplish this by:

Frequently updating your account and by publishing new and interesting content promoting your blog in a way that it reaches your target audience. People looking for information on a particular topic which your blog covers.

There are a number of ways and methods to increase your site's SERP ranking. But unfortunately, there exist a lot of commonly-believed myths about SEO on WordPress.com which have nothing to do with reality. Let's take a look at some of these myths and the true facts which negate these myths.

Myth No.1:

To achieve SEO, I require a plugin.

Fact:

Matt Cutts, who is the head of Google's webspam team, claims that WordPress.com is self sufficient in SEO and the users of WordPress.com only need to take care of 10-20 percent of the mechanics of SEO. The themes on WordPress.com have been composed in a way that they automatically link with search engines. Their design and composition makes it easy for search engines like Googlebot and several other search engines, to link the content and make it appear in front of a user. So no, you don't require a plugin to achieve SEO on WordPress.com.

Myth No.2:

Increased use of tags and categories in my blog post means a better chance for it to link with Google.

Fact:

Adding irrelevant tags and categories that have nothing to do with the content of your post, won't result in an increased visibility for your site on Google. Matt Cutts says, that Google doesn't blindly rely on categories and tags. It knows the context of your post from its content. Also, if a post is bombarded with TOO MANY categories and tags, it will result in its exclusion from Reader Topics pages. While adding categories and tags for your post, choose wisely and only add those tags that have the highest significance to a post. On a similar note, be more specific while adding tags. For e.g. add "nanotechnology" as a tag instead of "science".

Myth No.3:

If I am making a post about say, green tea, I should refer to the keyword and related terminologies again and again, as much as I can. This will get my post a lot of green tea-related traffic. Also, I should create multiple identical sites about green tea to get maximum traffic.

Fact:

It is good practice to inculcate correct keywords in your post and titles, period. Howbeit, overdoing it by stuffing keywords will not do any good for your SERP ranking. Also, copied material is not appreciated by Google and having multiple identical sites will be detrimental for your search ranking. Make your content appealing for human eyes, and not only to get maximum linkage with search engines.

There are lots of extra built-ins in Mac to speed up Mac. These are in unspoken languages and compatibility files for the old Mac architecture. Monolingual will ensure that all these additional languages are removed and the support for the older hardware. If the user is running the Intel Mac and are not using any older programs, then the support for PowerPC and the ARM can be withdrawn. The OS X install disk is required to get back, any of the required language or architecture, at a later time.

Shutting down of unwanted Apps

Shutting down the unwanted apps will ensure that they consume less memory and less CPU space. Right-click can be used on the programs in the Dock and then Quit chosen. Another option is pressing the Command-Tab for the App Switcher and then Command-Q is used for quitting the unused programs.

The Activity Monitor in the Utilities folder can show all the running processes on the Mac System.

On pressing the CPU button, the “%CPU” column can give a list of all programs by their CPU usage. We can also see the network, memory and the disk, as used by the different processes.

Deep Cleaning

Disk Utility always makes the life of the Mac user easier. Onyx is more robust and detailed. The miscellaneous junk that is accumulated on the Mac can be removed with the help of this Utility. The routine maintenance activity can be done with the help of this Utility. Other activities like verification of the startup disks for correcting the file system errors and finding hidden tweaks are also done by this Utility.

The Widgets

The cool widgets are because of the dashboard in Apple. These small and little apps for the weather forecasting and the stock prices are not only easy but also convenient. More are the number of widgets, running in the background; more resources are given by the OS X. We must take care, that unnecessary widgets are not kept open, particularly when they require upgrade on a constant basis.

Preference Panes

The custom items are being displayed in the preference panes and this consumes CPU resources. The item should be removed, if not needed.

Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini Top 5 Competitors

Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini Top 5 Competitors
Samsung releases the mini version of its flagship devices with a flagship S device. The Samsung Galaxy S5 mini will be coming here soon and has already been teased by Samsung for the Indian market. Like the previous mini versions, this one has watered down specifications. It comes with a 4.5 inch semi HD display and runs a quad core processor with 1.5 GB of RAM. While this device offers decent set of specs, there are a lot of devices in this price band. Many of these devices come with even better features and specifications.

Sony Xperia Z1 Compact

This is one of the best compact versions we have seen. While most mini or compact versions come with low end specifications, the Z1 compact came with same hardware as the original Z1 except for the display, which is smaller and has got lower resolution. The device has got the same design as the Xperia Z1 and is waterproof and dustproof like the Z1. It gets a 4.3 inch display with 720 p resolution. You get an impressive pixel density of 342 ppi. The display is shatter proof and offers good display quality along with loads of Sony display technology. It runs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset with a 2.2 GHz quad core processor. It has got 2 GB of RAM and has got 16 GB of internal storage. You also get a micro SD card slot. It supports 4G, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC and micro USB 2.0. The device has got a very impressive 20.7 megapixel camera. The camera performs very well and yields excellent results. The front camera has 2 megapixel resolution. The device came with android 4.3 Jelly Bean and has been updated to 4.4.2 KitKat.

Motorola Moto X

We really loved the Moto X when it first came out. They took a while to launch it in Indian market and it didn’t perform very well. But that doesn’t make the device any less impressive. They have really put efforts to make the overall experience of this device good rather than hunting for high end specs. The end result is a power efficient, easy to use and feature rich device which looks stylish. The build quality of this device is excellent and it is offered with a large number of colour combinations. For a slight premium, you can also have this device with a wooden back which looks excellent. It has got a 4.7 inch 720p AMOLED display. They have made a good use of the AMOLED technology by showing popup notifications on standby screen. It runs a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset with a dual core processor clocked at 1.7 GHz. Apart from these two cores, there are two other cores running at low clock speeds. One of them handles the voice commands and the other one takes care of the inputs from all the sensors. This way the features like smart notifications run easily without taking a lot of power in processing. The device comes with a decent 10 megapixel camera which performs well even in low light conditions.

Apple iPhone 5C

If you are looking for devices with relatively small screens as compared to the current crop of flagship devices, the iPhone 5C is a pretty good option. It has got a 4 inch display with a resolution of 640 x 1136. This gives you a decent pixel density of 326 ppi. It shares the hardware with iPhone 5 but comes with different design and in colourful polycarbonate shells. It runs the Apple A6 chipset with dual core processor and 1 GB of RAM. It has got an 8 megapixel camera which is pretty good and can also record full HD videos. It runs iOS 7 which is a major improvement over the previous versions and will also get the iOS 8 update. There are some limitations with an apple device if you are coming from Android but apart from that, it is an excellent device.

Sony Xperia ZR

This is an older device that came out last year but we still like it for its handy size, decent hardware and IP 58 certification. The device is waterproof and dustproof like most other devices in the family. It has got a 4.55 inch semi HD display which is pretty decent though not as good as the display on Xperia Z1 or Z1 compact. It runs a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset with a quad core processor running at 1.5 GHz. It has got 2 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal storage. You get a micro SD card slot as well. It gets an impressive 13 megapixel camera. You get the usual set of connectivity options on this device among other features. The device came out running android 4.1 Jelly Bean but has been updated to the latest android version now.

Google Nexus 5

This device has got the largest display in this list. We were going to list Google Nexus 4 here for its smaller size, attractive design and relatively lower cost here but then it has almost disappeared from the market now and the price difference isn’t really big. While the device has got a 5 inch display, it doesn’t feel very big or bulky to hold. The dimensions have been kept well in control and the near perfect weight further helps with it. It gets an impressive 5 inch IPS LCD display. It has full HD resolution so you get excellent pixel density making it a very crisp display. It runs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset with 2.3 GHz quad core processor. It comes with 2 GB of RAM and is offered with 16 GB and 32 GB storage options. It gets an 8 megapixel camera which comes with optical image stabilisation as well. The device runs the latest android operating system and will continue to be the first one to get updates for a while now. This being a Nexus, you can also find a large number of custom operating systems for this device when you get bored of stock android.

SEO and SMO are Two Different Techniques

SEO and SMO are Two Different Techniques
The terms Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and Social Media Optimization (SMO) are often confused as being synonymous. It must be for the word 'optimization' which creates the illusion that these terms are interchangeable. This is a false trend, and both these terms are visibly different from each other with regards to their meanings. You can achieve good SEO even if you are not doing so well in the SMO department and vice versa. On the other hand, it is possible that the progress of SMO will be directly linked with the progress of SEO. To clarify things in a better way, let us see what SMO and SEO are and how they differ.

What is SEO?

SEO is the utilization of search engine results page (SERP). It is the calculated placement of frequently searched and commonly used words and phrases in the web content. These frequently searched words and phrases are called keywords and key phrases. SEO is a marketing strategy which is used to amplify site traffic, sales of the product, marketing of brand and reorganization on part of a company or a person. When a user intends to do a search on internet, he inserts the keyword or key phrase into Google, Yahoo! or MSN, which are the commonly used search engines. SERP displays a list of top 10 pages which show the highest relevance with the keyword or key phrase. In other words, the best optimized websites will be displayed as the top 10 pages. In most of the cases, the websites which make it to the top 10 displayed pages have achieved SEO.

Benefits of Achieving SEO:

Websites which achieve SEO will appear more frequently than the others and they will be more popular and better trusted among the users of internet. This is valuable for the PR of a site. The PR of a site is ranked from 1 to 10 on the logarithmic credibility scale. The PR value of a site is directly proportional to its credibility. A site with better credibility will charge more for posting ads.

Now let's take a look at SMO.

What is SMO?

SMO makes full use of all forums of social media for the marketing and publicity of web content, a product or a brand. Bookmarks, news, pictures and video sites also play a role in advertising through SMO. SMO disseminates web content on popular social media sites like Facebook, Digg, Twitter, Businesswire and Youtube. The intended use of SMO is to amplify site traffic, product and affiliate product sales and to achieve subscribers.

How to Achieve SMO?

Unlike SEO, SMO is not gained by the strategic placement of keywords and key phrases. Doing so definitely helps, but this is not the key principle for achieving SMO. Rather, it is achieved by producing eye-catching, innovative and influential web content which can grasp the attention of a user. If an audience finds the content interesting, he will share or post it. If the content gains popularity, it will appear on top social media bookmarking sites like Digg and StumbleUpon.

Cut to the chase: Despite using different strategies and techniques, both SEO and SMO are often applied simultaneously to market the same content. Using these strategies prudently will make your content popular on social media sites and will make it appear on top ranking on search engines.

7 Best Practices of Knowledge Management


7 Best Practices of Knowledge Management
If your organization is implementing a formal knowledge management strategy for the first time, it is essential that you give good thought to what you want that strategy to accomplish and the types of tools you need to reach your goals. What you do at this formative stage will determine how well your company is able to reap the benefits of knowledge management. Here are seven best practices that will help you structure and implement an effective knowledge management strategy.


Identify your organization’s knowledge

What knowledge is contained in your organization and where is that knowledge currently stored? Knowledge is not just a singular phenomenon. It includes explicit knowledge, which is documented and easily transferable; implicit knowledge, which is not documented and usually resides in people’s brains; and embedded knowledge, which is built into various processes and procedures. An effective knowledge management strategy takes into account all of these types of knowledge.

Set goals and priorities

What do you want your knowledge management strategy to accomplish? Is your goal to improve customer service, operations, or intra-organizational collaboration? If you have multiple goals, what are the priorities? Having clearly defined goals and objectives will help you pick appropriate tools, set tasks and responsibilities, and determine metrics to measure how well your system is working.

Make knowledge creation, identification, and sharing easy

A knowledge management system will only benefit your organization if it is easy to use. The goal is to reduce your employees’ cognitive load and time spent on low-level tasks, not to increase them. Give your employees access to the information they need and provide opportunities for them to collaborate. Also, keep everything in one place—don’t require employees to use different systems to access information related to customer service, sales, and marketing, for example.

Create a knowledge sharing culture

A knowledge sharing culture is one that cultivates the sharing of knowledge across the organization with the goal of making the entire organization more productive. It recognizes that there is a difference between information and knowledge, and strives to transform the former into the latter. It is an environment where collective knowledge is valued over individual knowledge, where failure is seen as an opportunity to gain new knowledge, and where working collaboratively is the norm.

Use what you do know to discover what you don’t

Knowledge management is not just about gathering an organization’s knowledge into a centralized location so that it can be used by all employees. It’s also about recognizing the gaps in that knowledge and working to fill them. In an environment where innovation is essential to success, no business can afford to think it already knows it all.

Think long-term

Ideally, the strategy you implement now will support your company’s growth into the future. Think about what types of knowledge management tools you may need down the road and leave space for them in your current implementation.

Use appropriate technology

Many knowledge management software packages are available, ranging from bare-bones to tricked-out. The features you need will depend on your goals and on the resources you have to devote to them. Before investing in the first knowledge management system you find, do your research and select the one that most closely reflects your objectives. Remember that flexibility is one of the top features of any application.

Implementing a knowledge management strategy is one of the best steps you can take to move your business to the next level. Following these seven best practices will help you identify, define, and carry out a strategy for business success.

How the Cloud Optimizes Your Business


How the Cloud Optimizes Your Business
Technology continues to grow by leaps and bounds, especially when it involves information technology for businesses. Always needing to know the best solutions for their IT operations, businesses everywhere are looking for answers. In today's high-tech world, cloud computing is quickly gaining momentum as the best way to improve business operations and productivity. When it comes to IT support and managed IT services, cloud computing offers businesses many key advantages.

Telecommuting Services

With the popularity of mobile devices growing by leaps and bounds, more businesses than ever are now looking at telecommuting as a way to not only save money, but also allow their employees to work from home or handle aspects of the job while on the go. Cloud computing allows employees to easily access data on their mobile devices, and it also allows employers to more easily hire off-site workers. By doing so, operational costs are reduced since the employer does not need to provide a physical work location for employees.

Outsourcing Services

Cloud computing allows for additional savings by making outsourcing even easier. Business activities such as customer service can be outsourced offsite or even overseas, making this a much more cost-effective option. By not having to do in-house hiring and provide a work location, thousands and sometimes millions of dollars can be saved.

Access Control

One of the biggest advantages to cloud computing is the safety of data. With hackers and scammers everywhere, IT support is made safer and more secure through the use of cloud computing. Physical servers are constantly being targeted by criminals hoping to gain access to personal information of customers or confidential information from businesses, so it's imperative to have a secure system in place. Cloud computing provides peace of mind when it comes to managed IT services, making sure tighter security is in place and access to files, data and other information is made safer than ever.

Data Duplication

When physical servers need to be used for data duplication, costs can be extremely high. However, cloud computing can solve this problem by performing the same tasks using virtual servers rather than physical ones, saving a business additional money on their managed IT services. Many businesses need to have multiple copies of information available in order to keep business operations streamlined, so using cloud computing allows this to be accomplished for pennies on the dollar compared to more traditional methods.

Business Relocation

As today's business world is prone to change, many businesses decide to relocate due to business trends or to save money. For businesses using traditional servers, relocation can be expensive as well as time-consuming. However, with cloud computing relocating becomes much easier and less expensive. Rather than taking time to set up new servers and other IT equipment, a business can instead relocate and almost immediately pick up right where it left off at its previous location.

With all of these reasons, it's no wonder cloud computing has achieved its current level of popularity. Keeping data safer, lowering costs and making business operations easier than ever before are just a few of the many reasons smart businesses everywhere are making cloud computing their first choice.

Completing Your Education Is Within Your Reach

Completing Your Education Is Within Your Reach
Making time to expand an existing skillset or to explore a new one may be just a few clicks away on a computer or taps on a mobile device.

One of the most common reasons people give for not pursuing additional degrees or a professional certification is the lack of time in their already busy schedules. With a scarcity of time available to complete a class in a traditional setting, many are turning to the Internet to continue their education when it’s convenient for their schedules.

Whether it's working more than 40 hours per week, raising a family, or other obligations, it may seem impossible to gain a competitive edge and increase your value to a current or potential employer due to a lack of expertise. Your employer may even understand your plight, and provide some of the funds needed.

As more people explore ways to gain technical and professional experience and secure an edge over their competition, turning to online resources for a variety of training offers the opportunity to fit education into any schedule as well as into nearly any budget!

Previously, attending web-based classes may have seemed as if they were for lazy or for those who were unable to function in a traditional environment. Now, many well-known colleges and universities offer online certificate programs that allow students to attend classes, including the taking final assessment, completely over the web. For example, Oregon State University offers a certificate in Digital Brand Management that offers students training in the latest digital marketing trends and requires a commitment of just four to six hour a week for class assignments. In less than a year, students are able to obtain training that can get them a promotion or make a change in their current career path.

If a fee-based online option is not feasible due to current financial constraints, there are many free programs where a certificate can be earned. Google Analytics, for example, offers an academy where after reviewing a series of modules users complete an assessment to earn certification.

Similarly, Coursera offers a number of courses provided by top-tier colleges and universities in a variety of categories such as economics, nutrition, and statistics for no cost to end users.

For those who may not have time to sit down in front of a laptop to complete a course, there are also a number of free mobile apps offering courses that can be viewed during the morning and evening commute to work.

Udacity provides users to take advantage of technical and non-technical courses curated by Google, Facebook, salesforce.com, and many other top companies in the software and tech industry. Many of the courses are free and provide students to start at a beginning level and progress to more advanced levels over time.

These are just a small sample of the reputable and recognized web-based courses available. Additionally, many employers now see the benefit of keeping their employees educated and may subsidize the costs of courses. It’s an opportunity to not only attract talent but retain talented staff with the latest knowledge in their industry.
