How to Choose a Good Web Design Service Provider

Building a web presence and having the ability to promote your website effectively could take you hours or even days of trying to find different web design service providers such as website designers, web developers, web hosts, SEO experts, online marketing, link builders, article writers and logo designers among many other website design services. This is particularly complicated as many companies offer all or some of these services to businesses and individuals. This highlights the importance of finding a way to narrow down the search by devising a strategy or determining factors to keep into consideration.
How to choose a reliable service provider

There are many companies out there who can help you build any size or type of website that you wish to have. They can build websites ranging from small custom designs to extremely or highly advanced ones. If you need best results, you need to find a service provider who is committed to helping achieve growth and success in your goals. So, what are some of the things that you need to keep into consideration?

For starters, look for a company that offers excellent customer service. This is the kind of service provider who will be willing to offer comprehensive advice along the way. It will ensure that you are free from worry even if you are not a web guru because they will have you covered. Look for a service provider who is willing to develop your website with user friendly content management system as well as non obligatory training on how to make use of your website.

Look for a company that allows you direct access to their website designers who designed your website. Your website design service providers should have highly skilled team of website designers for you to be confident of the services provided. Locate a company that is willing to respond and answer your calls or reply to your emails at any time of the day or night. Look for features such as live chat, telephone numbers or even an email address on their website to be sure that they are contactable when need be.

You may also want to consider seeking web design services of a reputable company. For once, you will be providing your payment details and, therefore, need a company that you can trust with such vital information. Also look out for unique yet genuine packages offered by different companies before settling on any one of them.

Why must you upgrade from Samsung Galaxy S4 to Galaxy S5

Over the last 5 years, Samsung has emerged as the kingpin of smartphones, constantly shelving out models that leap over their predecessors. Their constant zeal for innovation, focus on utility building and relentless marketing efforts has made the other players in this field dormant. This spring, Samsung brings out the latest entrant to the arena of smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy S5, in its bid to neutralize the competition even further. Let’s see whether its arrival results in the slow fade out of its precursor, the Samsung Galaxy s4, or whether the oldie is able to hold its ground in front of this new giant!

Galaxy-5

Looks that matter

Samsung has worked to sharpen the design and feel of S5. Although it still has a plastic body, the perforated back has given a soft finish that feels good to touch. The S5 is a wee bit heavier (15g) and wider (2mm) than S4, with anodized finish around the corners. Battery can still be accessed easily by opening the back cover, a useful function which most high-end phones have done away with.

The launch line-up of S5 promises the conventional colors of black and white along with the blingy and vibrant blue and gold variations. TheS4, being in the market for over a year now, is available for an array of colors, from red, purple, silvery mist to the subtle yet bold black and whites.

The screen of S5 gives an impeccable image quality thanks to a restructuring of the Super AMOLED core and added efforts to calibrate the screen color and contrasts. Without taking anything away from the quality display of S4, it can be easily said that The S5 has brought with it probably the best in its class screen, with a never before seen natural tone of colors that give a better control and color accuracy.

Smarter at its core

Galaxy S5 uses the Snapdragon 801 quad-core 2.5GHz processor in deviation to the Snapdragon 600 quad core 1.9 GHz used by its prototype, the S4. This alteration has made the CPU leaps and bounds better, as validated by the Geekbench 3 benchmark which gives S5 a whopping 2908 points in comparison to S4’s 2,240 points for overall CPU capabilities.

What it means for users-High graphic requirement games can be played longer on S5, along with a better ability to handle multiple tasks running simultaneously.

Battery back-up is a big bone of contention for users these days as the usage of phones has increased considerably, demanding more life out of the little machines. Galaxy S5’s hardware upgradations due to a power horse processor have resulted in a lot more stamina that the S4 lacks. A 14-hour stretch of video playback in S5 as compared to 11 hours in S4 is a significant improvement. Apart from that, The S5 has introduced an extreme power-saving structure that makes the screen go black and white and lets you use only some essential apps, cutting down the rest. You can really hope to make the phone last a full day with just 10 per cent charge left, thanks to this mode.

It seems that Samsung people have really put on their thinking hats when it comes to S5’s camera. For the first time, this phone uses an ISOCELL sensor (again a product of the Samsung think-tank) for a 16MP resolution, with a 16:9aspect ratio. However, the real clincher is the new HDR mode which gives you an amazing focusing speed of 0.3 seconds and lets you capture multiple frames, even ones you never intended to!

The S4 tames in comparison with a 13MP Sony sensor and a 4:3 aspect ratio that cuts in to the sensor without letting you use the full 13megapixels, stopping short at just 9.6.

Added to that

The S5 is replete with features that are not to be found in S4. Here are a few:

Fingerprint scanner- Though iPhone5S was the first to introduce this feature, the S5 has added pretty useful services to it, for example, your Pay-Pal purchases can now be made just by the swipe of your thumb. Located beneath the central select button, it can be even used to lock/unlock the phone, along with the traditional pass codes. An interesting thing about this feature is that it is open to other app developers to innovate around and use.

IP67 certification-This standard certifies that S5 is surely not a scared water baby as it can survive for 30 minutes under 1 meter of water! (It still does not give you a license to plunge into the pool with the phone in your pocket!)

USB 3.0 port-Galaxy S5 is one of the very few phones that use the larger-socketed micro USB 3.0 connector for swifter data transfer and faster charging, when used with a USB 3.0 computer port.

What’s the verdict then? The Samsung galaxy S5 has surely emerged as a worthy successor to the S4, building on its qualities while getting rid of its faults, more or less. It is a phone that is will make the smartphone world sit back and take notice! As for the buyers, it will set their hearts racing, and measure it for them as well with its heart rate sensor app!

How to choose good web hosting India providers

Best Web HostingAre you looking for a good web hosting India service provider? Developing a possible list of such companies should not be a difficult task. You only need to find the hosting service providers that satisfy several parameters. To get hold of a reliable web host, you may have to learn how to evaluate different web hosts as well as how to establish the kind of services you need.

Customer service

Good customer service is one of the many requirements that a dependable web host should have. It is not until something goes wrong that you realize why choosing a good web host is essential. It should not always be about the pricing. When choosing a web host, ensure to look for the availability of support options such as phone, email or even a chat. Also look for online documentation and client forums and check if they have responses from the hosting India staff. Lack of these key features mean that the web hosting company may not be there to help when you need them.

Disk space is crucial

A great service as far as web hosting is concerned can also be determined by establishing the amount of space allocated to your website. There are some hosting India providers who offer their clients unlimited space and others do so at a cost. In any case, you should ensure that you have a minimum of 20% extra space than what you are using presently or what you plan to use to offer you some room for growth. It is necessary to determine how much the extra space will cost to enable you adjust when need arises. Additionally, it is not correct to think that unlimited space offers are always the best; trade-offs are always there.

Web hosting price

Although this should not always be used in your evaluation of web hosts, it is nevertheless an important factor. Mostly, you will have no problems locating web hosting India that meets your specific requirements at an affordable or worthwhile price. While free web hosting is an easy way out, it is not entirely free. Most of the free hosts usually pay themselves by placing advertisements on your website. Additionally, you might have to deal with so many extreme rules on what qualifies as a post on your own site. The key thing here is to avoid overpaying for hosting services as you can get reasonable hosting solution. On the other hand, do not underpay, especially if it is a business website.

The Right Mix of ERM and BCM – The Success Concoction

Many global companies are not adequately prepared to counter incidents that threaten their business’s continuity. Loss of crucial data, systems and processes in a security violation could send businesses tumbling down.

Business Continuity Management or BCM is a holistic management practice that identifies impending impacts, which intimidate an organization, and offers a framework for building flexibility. The process enables an efficient response which can uphold the brand reputation and interests of its key stakeholders, thereby creating value.

BCM programs characteristically do a superior job measuring business criticality to analyse and determine recovery priorities. However, the challenge for an organization lies in integrating the business with IT properly in this analysis. The BCM program should effectively coordinate with the organization’s Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) program, approach and results.

So how and where does ERM converge with BCM?
Enterprise Risk Management or ERM has been a reputable function within businesses for quite some time, and is well embedded in many organizations, while Business Continuity Management is relatively new. Since protecting the continuity of a business process also has a component of risk management to it, BCM is often construed to be a part of ERM. Although the two are essentially separate, there are many facets of business processes that address the risk of conducting business. Additionally, there are aspects that counter risks to enable the continuity of business functions. The point of convergence – managing risks is critical to protect the continuity of the business.

A strategy, which enables a business to recover from downtime or prevent a disaster swiftly enough, is crucial for business continuity. While ERM identifies and treats risks in the organization, BCM assists the organization to develop flexible and inclusive solutions that cater to the availability of their information systems, essential data and core business processes in case of a catastrophe.

The primary focus of BCM is deterrence and response to unsettling occurrences. Risk management helps measure the probability of particular risks, but it also determines the vulnerability of critical business assets like facilities, human resources, technology, processes, etc. This in turn helps a BCM program create objectives that address specific risks.

Regardless of whether risk management is appropriate for C-level staff or it resides only within a particular department, it acts as important decision-support system. BCM should be an essential part of successful risk management. Business-continuity planning and disaster recovery are ‘life jackets’ that help an organization endure potential risks, which it cannot otherwise mitigate.

There are several variables that can potentially impact the execution of a risk management program. Some companies argue that it does not matter where BCM and ERM are positioned within a business; what is rather important is that they are effectively engaged within the business. However, some disagree. Poor positioning within an organization can significantly affect the success of the business. The Board of Directors should bring the Internal Audit and ERM groups together to create processes and monitor them effectively. Support from the senior leadership of a company, coupled with optimal integration of BCM and ERM, is a sure shot concoction that spells magic for business.

LG G2 Mini – Higher end Smartphone with 8 MP Primary Camera

The majority of the Smartphone manufacturers has indeed gotten the message that not everyone is impressed with a 5-inch or a higher screen monstrous looking smartphone. Some smartphone makers have indeed taken it very seriously and have realized that their mighty phones may not be quite ringing the sale registers owing to their astronomical prices and thus are designing ‘mini’ editions which may not be all that good as the marquee phones but are very impressive, nonetheless.

LG_G2_prss-578-80

Korean handset maker LG seems as if it is gearing up for the ‘Mini’ device strategy and is all set to  launch the G2 Mini, a small, compact and feature –packed 4.7-inch Android device that borrows much of the attractive style and designing of the stunning G2 but with stripped down hardware.

Screen and other components
The LG G2 Mini’s screen gets a pixel resolution of 960x 540 pixels and this 4.7-inch screen has a 234 pixels per inch screen density. This may not be the best of retina quality offered by some other best screens you can find in the market. Though the G2 packs a powerful 2.26 quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, its younger sibling settles with a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor. The G2 Mini also settles with nearly half the memory as compared to its big brother. It packs in 1 GB RAM cache as opposed to 2 GB RAM cache found in the mighty G2. The G2 is undoubtedly a speed demon while the G2 may sound less demonic but much impressive.

Operating System
What is quite interesting about the G2 Mini is that it runs on the 4.4 KitKat, the latest edition from Android. A few mid level smartphones still are launched in the market that run on 4.2, it is quite a welcome move by LG to have the G2 Mini run on 4.4 KitKat. The G2 Mini also gets the ergonomic controls that one sees in the G2. The power button and the volume rocker are housed beneath the camera rather than filling up the otherwise sleek edges of the device.

LG-G2-Mini-Features-priceLG has engineered the G2 Mini to be a smaller, toned down version of the marquee handset, G2 which has won many accolades, not just from  buyers but also from critics alike. The G2 Mini will be coming with several of G2’S premium UX features that is sure to leave the global audience much impressed.

 

UX features
Some much popular UX features that one can find in LG’s high-end G series flagship phones, like Plug & Pop and Guest Mode, are also offered in the G2 Mini to appeal to a new generation of users. Since this global, mid-range smartphone was made to satisfy the needs of countless customers in different parts of the world, the G2 Mini will be sold in different variations : four exciting color options like Gold, Red, Lunar White and Titan Black as well in 4G LTE/3G options.

xl_lg g2 webIn the past few years, the smartphone market has matured quite a lot and several new categories have been created, like premium, high end devices with a display size of 5-inch and above as well as mid-range devices that fall in the 4.5-inch screen size bracket. Being a 4.7-inch phone with excellent hardware specifications that remain unmatched in its category, the G2 Mini is likely to impress new-age consumers’ demands for a viable smartphone with high-end features. As a compact model of the smartphone that was awarded ‘Best of 2013’ phone award from various sections of the media the G2 carries the innovative and path-breaking design language of the Back Key first which was first seen in the G2. The G2 Mini packs in a 2,440 mAh battery and the vivid IPS screen display and power-packed quad-core processor deliver a exceptional multitasking experience. The fact the G2 Mini runs on 4.4 KitKat version ensures the user gets the most optimized and an up-to-date Android experience available presently in the market.

The G2 Mini is blessed with the exciting combination of the much useful and powerful Plug & Pop feature seen in LG G2. It generates a customizable menu of audio programs and apps automatically when a USB cable or earphones are connected to the device, to provide a great audio experience.  G2’s enthusiasts and users can easily identify with the Guest Mode feature. This makes use of a distinct unlock code to secure confidential passwords and other sensitive content and ensures such data is well concealed when the phone is being used by some other person.

Hardware
Apart from a smaller screen size, the G2 Mini features hardware which is not as high-end as the full-blown G2 but this is only understood since the Mini, as the name suggests, is a stripped down version of the G2. The Mini will be sold with either a NVIDIA Tegra 4i chip or a Snapdragon 400 processor instead of the much powerful Snapdragon 800 processor that powers the G2. The G2 Mini also settles for a lower screen resolution as compared to its elder sibling. The 4.7-inch screen display has a 540×860 native resolution. The G2 Mini gets a 8 megapixel primary snapper and LG offers this phone in a dual SIM setup. On board storage available is 8 GB while a memory card slot is provided to expand its memory.

Though LG has not yet announced its pricing, the device will be launched in Russia first before it makes its presence felt in the Middle East, Europe, Asia and Latin America. Presently, LG has not provided any details of the G2 Mini’s launch in the United States.

Outlook
The LG G2 Mini that will be sold in Latin America is likely to get faintly different specs, with a quicker 1.7 Ghz NVIDIA chip and also a 13 megapixel rear camera. Indeed, LG has kept the needs of consumers in mind, those that belong to different geographical regions. It will be available in an exciting palate of colors but not in every region. Though LG has not yet announced its US release, it is likely to announce prices soon.

The LG G2 Mini – In This Case, Smaller Isn’t Always Better…

 imaGenerally speaking, it’s no secret that smartphone developers at large understand that not everyone is looking for a bulky, and often cumbersome, 5+ inch mobile monster to take up their precious pocket or purse space. The mobile market generously showcases a wide variety of smartphone sizes, but overall these do tend to lean more heavily toward the big-boned side of the seesaw. In some instances we’ve seen smaller adaptations of larger phones that still maintain the firepower of their bigger brethren, but in other cases the “mini” models have not been quite up to snuff.

Concerning the spanking new LG G2 Mini, this disappointing lineage continues onward. The G2 Mini is a compact Android phone standing a triumphant 4.7 inches, sustaining the flashy outward appeal of its successful and sought-after predecessor, the LG G2. Unfortunately, the G2 Mini doesn’t quite walk the walk of its older brother as can easily be witnessed by its hardware.

The G2 Mini’s screen only manages to boast a nearly measly 960×540 pixels over its stout 4.7 inch bodice allowing for a wimpy 234 pixels per inch density. That’s really not much to gloat over at all, especially in comparison to the gleam and sheen of hundreds of other smartphones on the market. Truly, the G2 Mini’s pixel density is not even close to the ballpark of retina quality that the top mobile screens on the market have to offer.

In comparison to the original G2 which touts a whopping 2.26GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, the G2 Mini squeaks by with a mousy sized 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400. Not to mention that the G2 Mini also only has half the amount of memory that the G2 has to offer with its limp 1GB of RAM versus the 2GB provided with the original G2. Not nearly as speedy as the G2, the Mini isn’t going to fair well with users looking to hurriedly flash through their data while on the go.

12

But really, the G2 Mini isn’t all bad. After all, it’s still running the latest and greatest version of Android that there is to offer, the 4.4 KitKat. This is a valid point to make here seeing how many middle of the road mobile phones are greeting the market while only operating with Android 4.2. The G2 Mini even sports the same fun rear controls as the original G2, hosting its volume control and power push-button below the camera rather than clunking up the side edges of the phone where they can be accidentally pushed while traveling about.

A few other decent aspects to the G2 Mini include its 8GB of storage which is expandable with microSD, an 8-megapixel camera, and a respectable 2,440mAh swappable battery. Some specs will differ from country to country, as in Latin America’s Mini will feature a faster 1.7GHz Nvidia chip and a 13-megapixel camera. Colors will generally include white, gold, black and red, but these will not be available in every regional market. That being said, the American release and pricing has not been announced quite yet.

What are the most valuable qualities for a social website design?

Social media platforms have become so ubiquitous that many people have a problem remembering a time before these solutions made it possible for people to interact and communicate. Their impact on modern day interactions is that they have become the basis for connecting with other people. However, what many fail to realize is that there existed other platforms for social interaction and communication before these websites came along. There were blogs, forums, and community boards across the internet where like-minded people could share and interact.

As some of the platforms have solidified their market share into a significant portion of the possible consumer market, rules and regulations have been tightened. It may, therefore, be a necessity for someone to create his or her own social website design to allow for interaction under his or her own interests and preferences. This aspect of web design has been simplified by the proliferation of website builder platforms across the internet. If the social media website created is to be successful, there are a number of rules that it must incorporate into its web design.

Sharing

Social media platforms exist for the sole purpose of interaction of people from diverse backgrounds. The website must provide a platform for people to share information, data, and other forms of media that may be important. It is especially vital that the website makes it possible for people to share pictures, videos, and audio files as these are the most commonly shared media formats.

Simplicity

The beauty of using a website builder platform is the ease to create a simple and easy to use website. The era of complicated websites that were hard to use and full of unnecessary features is gone. Hence, keeping it simple is better so that a majority of the target market is attracted to use it. Simplicity should not be, however, confused for a lack of functionality or features as some of the simplest websites on the internet offer some of the most powerful services to the user.

Security

Social media platforms must focus on user security as a fundamental feature of their web design. This is critical considering that people will not use a social media website that they do not trust to keep their information secure. Social media platforms allow people to share confidential and private information in security but only so long as security is addressed in the website design process.

Everything you need To Know about PHP v5.4

If you are interested in latest PHP updates, you probably know that the updates that were projected for postponed PHP 6 are added to PHP 5.4.0 instead, which means that PHP now includes a large set of new features and removes several legacy behaviors. Here’s is a detailed description on what’s added and what’s removed.

Major PHP Improvements – Here is What’s Added

-    Class member access on instantiation
-    Callable typehint. It allows a string with a function name, an array composed of class name and a closure
-    Short array syntax. This makes PHP code more readable and maintainable.
-    Binary value format
-    Support for class {expr} () syntax for added flexibility for PHP
-    Support for traits. A trait is intended to reduce some limitations of single inheritance by allowing a developer to freely use different sets of methods
-    Array dereferencing support to offer implementation of array dereferencing of method return
-    Indirect method call through array
-    Changed $Global into a JIT autoglobal
-    Better performance of @(silence) operator to speed up PHP scripts that rely heavily on silence operator
-    Multi byte support by default. Now PHP can be enabled or disabled directly through zend.multibyte directive in php.ini.
-    Build-in web server used for testing purposes
-    Performance and memory usage improvements

Removed from major PHP features
-    It is no longer allowed to use variable to tell PHP exactly how many levels of enclosing loops it should skip
-    Safe mode and various related ini options
-    Register_globals and register_long_arrays ini options
-    Allow_call_time_pass_reference option is also removed

Conclusion
Summing up, a number of internal structures have been made smaller or eliminated completely that has resulted in around 20-50% memory savings in large PHP applications. A number of impressive technologies have appeared and PHP extensions have been created to make them easily accessible. PHP has grown and improved along with the web and has also kept a stable market share of around 70% of all the websites present today. This includes some of the biggest as well as smallest names on the web. If you have a website or want to use PHP v5.4 on your Linux servers, look for a hosting provider that provides support to the updated PHP version.

The LG G Flex – A Neat Idea, But Not Quite Up to Snuff Yet?

LG G Flex has a lot of eyes glued to its bendy body all across this technology hungry globe, and for good reason. It’s the very first of its kind, a 4G smart-phone with a flexible display that could potentially change the game in the mobile phone industry.

 

LG G Flex

 

 

Said to be leaving the laboratory and invading the American market during the first quarter of 2014, there has already been quite a bit of not so hush-hush discussion as to whether or not this new model style is a doozy or a dud. Surprisingly and unfortunately, as it turns out, the latter seems to be the more general conclusion.

 

The word of this invention hit the streets last year and the competition was already underway with Samsung and their Galaxy Round. Featuring not only a truly remarkably bendable screen, the large LG G Flex handset also touts a brilliant 720P OLED display, 2 GB of RAM, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 mobile processor and a lovely 13 MP camera to boot.

LG G Flex

That all sounds well and good, of course, but when will the people get their own hands-on time to really make their personal conclusions on the G Flex? As it turns out the question is still on the table since the president of LG Canada, Frank Lee, merely stated in Las Vegas the this smart-phone will in fact be arriving on T-Mobile, AT&T and Sprint. No details concerning its price or date of release were given. The Vice President of Product Management at Sprint, David Owen, did however state that he had been carrying the G Flex for weeks on end and that it has been quickly and consistently noticed by others on the streets with favorable reactions. Other reviewers on the web, however, have not been looking upon this new offering in the same light. Ultimately, the decision and conclusions concerning the G Flex will be entirely subjective, but only time and experience will tell as to if this mobile device will indeed bring about a revolution in the smart-phone, as well as the greater technological, world.
