Make special and unique symbols using keyboard

I have came to know about some special symbols which we can make using our keyboard easily. Well, they aren’t on the keyboard by default, but if you will press some combination of keys from the keyboard then they will be appear. They are surely interesting. And you can use all of them to anywhere, on internet too.

Now let me start. First make sure that you have on your num lock from your keyboard. Means you should able to type those numbers from your keyboard. Now let’s start with some basic numbers. Press ‘Alt’ and then numbers one by one. Means first press Alt and with that press 1 number and then leave both of them. Do it for every number and see what you are getting.

For example, you will get: Alt+1 = ☺
Alt+6=♠, etc.

So check out all the numbers. I am sure you will found different interesting symbols using different numbers which you can use anywhere.

Now let me tell you about few special numbers which are little harder to remember, but surely they are important. Trick is the same. Here are they:

Alt+0153=™ (here you don’t need to press all together, just hold your finger on Alt button and then press those numbers one by one by holding Alt)
Similarly, Alt+0169=©
Alt+0176=° (degree)
Alt+11= (male)
Alt+12= (female)
Alt+24/5/6/7 = ↑/↓/→/← (press 24,25… one by one to get different symbol)

So this is it. There are many more. And you can find out by yourself by pressing different number one by one.

This is next version of S-100 from Cannon but with many added facility of Wi-Fi, which enables you to connect it with any printer, tablet, and phone with Wi-Fi facility available for free with any compatible application.

How to share files without data cable from your Smart Phone

This article is written by one of good friend Sunil. It is about sharing files from your smart phone to pc without any wires. 

Yes, you can share your files on PC without using a data sharing cable from your smart phone even if the PC has no bluetooth facility. This happens when you have a big file on your phone or PC and you are willing to transfer it to other device.

The only way you can think of a data cable. In case, you have no data cable available or no Bluetooth installed in PC. There is another common way you can use is ‘drop-box’ or attach it to your email. I can think of another way that would enable you to transfer files on Wi-Fi network without a problem but in that case, you must have your PC and smart phone connected with same network.

In case you are an android user then you should download AirDroid application in your smart phone firs and then login in your web browser of PC. Now you should find a pass-code in the application of your phone that is your way into PC while logging in to site in PC. You can now transfer any data to smart phone or PC just by going into logged in site and transferring saved data to either of the devices.

Wi-Fi files transfer
This application is good for android and Blackberry both but you can transfer up to 4MB file size only. After installing application into your phone, open Wi-Fi file transfer application. You shall see the IP address of your phone there, typing it into browser of your PC would enable you to transfer the file. Please remember that both the devices should be on the same network to get this service.

Android Sync Manager Wi-Fi
This document tool works well on android devices. Installing Android Sync manager tool in your mobile would be able back up, message photographs, videos and music files to share on PC or from PC to mobile. I hope this would serve your purpose in a more convenient way.     

So this is it. These apps will help you to send your files from your smart phone to pc without any wire. They are surely easy in use. So have fun.

This article is written by one of good friend Sunil. It is about latest Google Nexus 10 tablet.

Here comes the Nexus10 the most awaited 10” tablet from google this Tuesday. Google has launched this device in coloration with Samsung, a most updated device that google most probably had apple in mind who have just launched their fourth generation iPad in the market. This must be interesting to compare the features of specifications for the benefit of users to help them decide their specific needs in this particular item, here are a few details- 

If the quality of screen resolutions- Nexus10 compared with that of apple’ retina  display quality, Nexus10 is far superior as Nexus10 with 2560x1600 compared to apple’s 2048x1536 with screen size of 9.7” stands at 264. If you calculate their per inch value the Nexus10 stands far better making the resolution value at almost 300pixel/inch.

Processor- Nexus10 with Samsung made Dual core 1.7 GHz exynos processor with quad core ARMT604 graphic processor designed for architecture and visual computing.

RAM- Nexus10 has 2GB RAM but the RAM of apple’s iPad4 is still a secret but most people assume it to be of 1GB. That makes Nexus better as far processing speed is concerned. Although, iPad 4 is available in 64 GB version also while Nexus is available in 16 and 32 GB versions only.

Video- If we compare video qualities of Nexus10 with 16:9 aspect ratio values than 4:3, aspect ratio values that of apple’s iPad4 the Nexus10 stands far superior in video also.

Camera- Nexus10 has front facing stereo speakers and display with a 1.9- mega pixel front camera for video chat and 5-mega pixel rear camera with facility of dual near field communication with micro HDMI port. Apples iPad4 has almost same configurations but the front camera with 1.2 mega pixel, Apple also has not provided NFC (near field communication)

Operating system of Nexus10 is entirely based on google support working on android 4.2 Jelly bean OS where as iPad4 works on ios6 and supports Siri to take advantage of Apple’s map applications. Nexus10 supports Wi-Fi but has no facility of 3G or 4G compared to Apple’s iPad4 having these supports.

Nexus10 is not available in India for the time being but shall be launched overseas starting November 13 with in the price range of $400 and $500 for different versions of 16 and 32 GB.

This is it. I am sure this new lunch will get much more popularity. This will give hard competition to other big companies.
