Curiously Apple Is Going To Swith Quickly From OLED To MicroLED

Posted: 30 Aug 2016 02:01 AM PDT

Curiously what Apple is going to introduce next year Mid year of 2017 or Later actually, Yes it is going to switch quickly from OLED to Micro-LED. Of-course the Micro-LED rumors about Apple.

The Apple Watch is easilly awailable in all apple stores, But we are still looking likely we are going to see future hardware upgrades.  The advantage is that Micro-LED’s are much more energy efficient.

 

How Micro-LED iPhones In Future

Innolux CEO and Chairmen ” Jyh-Chau Wang” of LCD manufacturer says OLED will completely replace LCD technolgies. But CEO believes that  it will effect on performance, long term reliability and cost. According to manufacturer, replacing the displays is most common solution. Mr.Wang responded to the rumors that Apple will switch from 2017 on OLED.

Apple was last year opened a secret lab in northern Taiwan, to develop thinner, lighter, brighter and more efficient displays for future iPhone’s. They have previously staff of screen manufacturers AU Optronics and Qualcomm subsidiary SolLink pinched. Before that acquisition Micro LED was a relatively unknown technology.

micro-led-technologie

How difficult to produce Micro LED

The new screens are more advanced than the current TFT-LCD’s used in iPhone’s, iPad’s and Macs. They let the colors look better and require no back lighting like normal LCD screens. However, it is the disadvantage that they are difficult to manufacture and are expensive for mass production. For the little Apple Watch is perhaps feasible, but relatively large screens of the iPhone and iPad is a different story. In short, perhaps Apple will only switch to OLED to keep up with the competition, only to come up with its own display technology. Hope Apple fans will be waiting for the year 2017.

How to Convert “Doc/Docx to PDF” on Mac [2 Ways]

Posted: 29 Aug 2016 04:47 PM PDT

Everybody wants their data to be secured and want to read it more efficiently. There are many ways to do that, first of them all is convert your DocX files into PDF, the advantage of this is you can easily read the document and your data would be safe without been modified or altered.  First of them all let’s learn the basic

DOCX is the extension of Microsoft document file, It is the default file extension for any document created in Microsoft Word.

If you happen to have a number of .docx files in your Mac and would like people to only have read access to them, the best way is to convert them to PDF format so others can access them without having to install an office suite.

While there are multiple ways to convert a DOCX file to PDF, the most convenient and fastest way is described below. The reason I call it the fastest way is because it only requires right-clicking on the DOCX  file.

Why PDF:

  • Can read in any OS
  • Microsoft office suite is NOT required and preserve in original format
  • Easy to transfer/download online

How To Convert Word files (DOC/DOCX) to PDF in macOS ( Easiest way )

Method #1: If you need to convert a file from Word to PDF you probably select print to PDF from Word but when you need to convert multiple files you need to script it.

You are going to create an Automator script that will handle the DOCX to PDF conversion for you.

  • Launch ‘Automator‘ on your Mac.

automator

  • Select Service and click Choose to create a new document that is a service

Screen Shot 2016-08-29 at 10.51.44 PM

  • You are ready to create your script. First, select "files or folders" from the "Service receives selected" drop-down menu, and then select "Finder" from the "in" drop-down menu.

Screen Shot 2016-08-29 at 10.52.53 PM

  • Now, drag and drop the action labeled as "Get Specified Finder Items" from the left-panel over to the workflow that is on the right.

Screen Shot 2016-08-29 at 10.54.04 PM

  • Drag and drop an action named "Run Shell Script" from the left-panel onto the right-panel that is called workflow.

shell

  • Focus on the Run Shell Script action in the workflow, and click on the drop-down menu labeled as "Pass input" and change it to "as arguments."

arguments

  • Here comes the main part of the procedure. You need to copy the following script and paste it into the Run Shell Script box on your workflow. This is the script that actually does the process of converting a DOCX file to PDF.
#!/bin/bash  # Jacob Salmela  # 2016-03-12  # Convert annoying DOCX into PDFs with a right-click  # Run this as an Automator Service     ###### SCRIPT #######  for f in "$@"  do  # Get the full file PATH without the extension  filepathWithoutExtension="${f%.*}"  # Convert the DOCX to HTML, which cupsfilter knows how to turn into a PDF  textutil -convert html -output "$filepathWithoutExtension.html" "$f"  # Convert the file into a PDF  cupsfilter "$filepathWithoutExtension.html" > "$filepathWithoutExtension.pdf"  # Remove the temporary HTML file  rm "$filepathWithoutExtension.html" >/dev/null  # Uncomment the following line to remove the original file, leaving only the PDF  # rm "$f" >/dev/null  done

script

Note: the script above does not remove the original .docx file. You can uncomment (by removing the "#" in front of the line) the # rm "$f" >/dev/null line to have the original file removed after conversion.

  • Your script is ready, and you need to save it by clicking on the "File" menu followed by "Save…"

save

  • Enter a name for your service, and click on "Save." You should enter a meaningful name. I have named it "Convert to PDF" as it is self-explanatory.

name-as-save-to-pdf

  • Now that your service is ready to do a conversion, let's try it on a DOCX file to see if it works.

To perform a conversion, find a DOCX file, right-click on it and select "Services" followed by "Convert to PDF."

easy-convert

  • 12. Within a few seconds you should see the output PDF file in the same directory as the original file. You can now access this PDF file using any PDF reader such as Preview.

How to convert your DOCX file into PDF using Microsoft Office 2011 and 2016.

Method #2: There are three ways to achieve the task using Microsoft Office 2011 and 2016.

Eg – 123 1234 1234 (1234 is your secret code)

wait for the acceptance code and disconnect. ( Acceptance tone is a busy tone of long duration )

Even you can change your secret code if you wish to.  Follow this procedure to change the code –

  • Dial 123 xxxx abcd. "xxxx" is your old code and “abcd” is your new 4 digit code. Eg: 124 1234 5555.

Now your landline is fully secured from unauthorized usage.  If any person tries to tamper the code or uses wrong code the system will reject the command.  If incorrect code is used 9 times. The telephone is permanently locked and it can be reset only by the exchange in-charge of your area on a written request.

Motorola is finally launching its much-awaited budget smartphone Moto G4 Play in India. Motorola India just announced on Twitter that the device will go on sale as  an Amazon exclusive starting September 6. The Moto G4 Play belongs to the family of the very successful devices, Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus which are still doing very good in the Indian smartphone market. The Moto G4 Play might be called a basic or toned down version of these two devices and it is clearly reflected in its specifications and pricing.

The Moto G4 Play sports a 5-inch HD (720×1280 pixels) display and is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor with each core clocked at 1.2GHz coupled with 2GB of RAM. The device offers 16GB of inbuilt storage which can be further upgraded up to 128GB via a microSD card. The Moto G4 Play supports 4G LTE but offers only a single SIM. It runs on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and packs a decent 2800 mAh battery.

In the camera department, the Moto G4 Play sports an 8MP primary rear shooter  with f/2.2 aperture, LED flash and various other interesting features like burst mode, tap anywhere to capture,  auto HDR, etc. There is a 5MP camera on the front for selfies and video chat. Another remarkable feature of this device is a water repellent nano-coating which prevents it from mild water damages.

Although, Motorola hasn’t yet officially announced the price of the Moto G4 Play, but recent reports indicate a price tag of Rs. 8,999. This seems in resonance with the pricing of the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus which are priced Rs. 12,499 and Rs. 13,499 respectively.
