Copying and Accessing data from Android Smartphone to Windows or Mac PC

From past few years, Android OS on mobile devices has created a great revolution in mobile market. Many smatphones using Android has significantly increased and millions of people around the world are using Android Smart phones.

When you buy and Android smart phone, you would love to take some snaps , take some videos and save important contacts. Though few are using cloud storage now-a-days to save their data online, many still prefer to copy their data to a Windows PC.

So, how do you do it ? 

Is a cable mandatory to connect your Android phone to Windows PC ? I don't think so. 

Can we do wirelessly ? Yes Ofcourse. There is no doubt about it.

There is an app which is free and fast. Its called AirDroid. As name states all data transfers over the air. Amazing isn't ?

AirDroid is fast ,free app that lets you wirelessly manage and control your Android from a web browser without cables.

With AirDroid you can capture remote screen shots, take photographs using phone camera, view your phone call logs and reply to SMS message from Windows PC. However, its not possible to initiate phone calls from the PC. May be coming version of AirDroid may provide this feature.

If your data port to Android smart phone is broken and if wifi works fine in your phone, Airdroid will be of much use to you.

To get it working, you first need to install Desktop client in your Windows or Mac PC first. You can download the client from beta.airdroid.com.  

Next download AirDroid app on your Android mobile. Download Android app from beta.airdroid.com

Current AirDroid 3 is still not available in Google Play store. Get it beta version from here.

Tail for your smart mobile

For those who watch Movies, Television series on your mobile, this post is for you.

Many people including me have tendency of watching movies on my iPhone or any other smartphone which supports video streaming services like Netflix. A movie lasts at least for an hour. Holding an iPhone  which is 137grams for an hour is a pain.

So, I was looking around for a case which is light weight and can help to support in watching these videos for an hour long. I was interested in a simple design which doesn't add much weight to my iPhone. I found none for a while.

For quite a while, I pondered myself saying that iPhone is designed in such a way that no case on it looks good. It looks fantastic with its bear body.  I am sure most of you agree with me. Ofcourse, other mobiles looks fantasitc too.

mrtechpathi_mobile_tail
At last, I bumped up into a site where they were selling Mobile Tail which looks like a tail of animal. Its a simple and quite interesting design. Looks designer feel their mobiles as pets. They have derived the concept of tail from this.

It's too flexible that it can hold your mobile vertically or horizontally and the angle can be easily changed by attaching the tail on a different spot on the back side.

ckie state  "A portion of the profits from selling this product will be donated to an animal preservation group".

Not but not the least, whats the length of the tail ? 

Its Length is 125 mm.  If you are interested, buy this on ckie.

5 reasons to use cloud databases

The question of data storage is even more complex when you migrate to cloud solutions. The biggest concern of corporations is the loss of confidential data. However, not all the data can be transferred to a third-party company. In many countries the status of operators of personal data is still uncertain. Yet the number of database storage service providers in the cloud is growing steadily. How do they attract users? The first answer is obvious - saving money. However, there are other motives as well.

Cost Reduction
Normally, low initial cost and lower cost of operation of cloud solutions are considered to be the price advantages of this option of data storage. Choosing a cloud database, a company can save on salaries of database administrators. There are a few really skilled professionals in the market and, often, the ones that are already working in the company are overloaded with current tasks. Moreover, company budget and corporate policy do not allow hiring new employees. Choosing cloud solutions you won’t have to worry about configuring the database server, and the price for supporting it is usually much lower. 


Replacement of Staff - High Availability 
Unfortunately, a small team of in-house employees, overloaded with the database, can not always provide the necessary level of service. This is when cloud solutions, that promise a very high level of availability, and classic IT outsourcing come in handy. Hourly wages can be an effective way of organizing the IT support, including in the evenings, weekends and holidays.

Proactive approach 
The company experts’ skills of the DBMS are very often needed in many projects. On the other hand, this vital task of database monitoring and management is considered to be non-core activity for IT professionals. The team of database specialists, who are overloaded with higher priority tasks, does not have time for proactive work. This is why signing a contract with an external monitoring service provider you should make sure that it includes proactive monitoring. This will help the company get rid of a lot of unnecessary problems. 

Keeping up with the times 
DBAs and organizations where they work need to keep up to date with the latest database technologies. DB Software is becoming more complex, and the training of specialists gets increasingly expensive. External providers can quickly cover the gaps in knowledge and experience of internal teams. 

Lack of experience 
The fact is that many companies do not have database specialists. It's one thing to run a SQL Server or to insure the availability of the application. It’s quite a different situation to correct errors in the database and optimize its performance. Company’s internal IT team can manage for a while, but with the appearance of the real problems, the organization will have to urgently seek the help of an external expert. When it comes to the cloud, your database bottlenecks become a headache for the service provider. Of course, a large company could hire a really high-class specialists of database administration, you just have to get to the first level support line with your problem. 

Each organization is unique, and each of them has specific reasons for outsourcing. However, there are also many common reasons to use cloud databases. The need for high-quality technical support, of course, is paramount.

8 pieces of technology we expect to see in the office in the coming years

Even in the past ten years or so, we’ve seen an incredible rise in the amount of technological innovations which have taken place within the workplace. With the influx of new gadgets, IT equipment and technological gadgetry which has flooded both our private and working lives, it’s only natural to expect a whole lot more to infiltrate offices across the world over the next few years.

If you think that only ten years a go, if you’d have mentioned tablets in the workplace, you might have received some funny looks. Mainly because iPads and the Galaxy Nexus didn’t even exist then! Social networks, internet, email, GPS, touch screen mobile phones and many more innovations are now prominent in all walks of life, and their prices are tumbling southward on an ever more consistent basis. This only means that their usage will increase in the future with corporations investing in devices which aid productivity across all areas of a business.

Thinking about the technology which we now use that a decade ago didn’t even exist back then, there is even more reason to keep one eye on the future, here’s 8 technological innovations we expect to infiltrate the workplace in the coming years.


3D Printing


If your job involves designing or manufacturing products, you may soon find yourself with a 3D printer in your office, or even on your desk. This technology creates 3 dimensional objects by adding materials such as plastic, layer by layer, using computer aided design until an object is formed.

It will allow for designers to very quickly make design prototypes at their desks, and they’ll then have a better chance of catching design errors early on - resulting in cheaper manufacturing processes across the board.

Cloud technology
Forget costly servers which need continual maintenance whilst also taking up valuable office space. Cloud technology is the latest development in file storage. Instead of a businesses using physical storage servers, the future is set to occur somewhere in the clouds.

Google, Microsoft, Dropbox and Box all have their own various versions of cloud storage and all happen to have business editions which even now, in 2014, are becoming regularly used. We expect cloud storage to become more prominent in the future, especially with the productivity apps which increase office efficiency that major cloud players Google and Microsoft are equipping their cloud products with.

Web based cloud technology offers security, and allows sophisticated collaboration such as Google Apps which many small enterprises and even larger businesses are already using.

Smartdesks
Adjustable smartdesks, or kinetic desks are set to revolutionise the way we spend our time at the office. There have been plenty of reports recently which have looked into the issue of continual sitting down, hence the need for something like the kinetic desk which adjusts.

Wearable technology
Nowadays, our smartphones and tablets allow us to take photos, videos and have many other functions, but the predictions are that by 2020 it will be the devices that we wear which we will be turning to first. This will be the case both at home and in the workplace, and we’re already starting to shift towards this with the Google Glass developments over the past couple of years.

It might be a number of years before wearable tech glasses or watches become prominent in the workplace, with it happening before we know it, and there will be a point when we simply don’t question it anymore.

Video conferencing 
Skype was the trailblazer when it came to video calling but it has now been taken to a new level through technologies like Google Chromebox. Chromebox again is just the start of what we expect to develop and become something which is much more prominent in offices, which is reliable, high resolution, high sound quality videoconferencing.

Talking to your computer
Voice activated software will take off, and while it’s not perfect yet, it will improve.

More touch screens
We now have touch screen mobile phones, laptops and televisions but did you ever think that touch screen tables would become a reality? Not only is the workplace set to see this innovation over the next five to ten years or so, but it’s thought that classrooms will be able to benefit from multi-touch, multi-user smartdesks which assist with pupil learning.

Imagine being able to display a project to a client, or a team within your business on a large smart table, not only would users be able to collaborate with ease, but documents could be accessed from a cloud storage facility with consummate ease.

No more offices
This could happen, with portable technologies and documents stored over the cloud, there’s then no need to be situated in a physical office. Working on the go will become the norm, and as wi-fi improves, connectivity will no longer be an issue.

In the 1970’s, office’s were populated with workers who typed their work on typewriters, and to think that we are now talking about technology which you wear on your person is incredible. Who knows what the distant future will hold!

However, once you finish and get to see the helicopter you build flying efficiently, you will definitely appreciate the time you’ve put in.
You don’t have to be restricted to the easy kits. There are many different options for very innovative helicopters that have various shapes and features. You can discover these in specialty stores all over the internet, as well as in some brick-and-mortar shops (if you are lucky to have one nearby). Always make sure to research prior to buying and building one. You can find reviews and read about experiences all over the internet. You can learn about how well your chosen helicopter flies, how easy it is to assemble and navigate, and anything else that you want to learn about.

Go though the folders listed in a hierarchical view at the left, below the names of their respective mailboxes.


As you can see in the image above, selecting a folder in the left pane reveals its contents in the upper-right pane, while the preview of the individual item is displayed in the bottom-right pane. You can, in a like manner, go through each folder in the mailbox of individual user. The software allows saving all as well as selected folders in a mailbox, which is applicable for all the mailboxes in the EDB file.

With the required folders in each mailbox selected, proceed to save these mailboxes as individual PST files that can be imported into Outlook in a trouble-free way. Clicking the Save Mailbox option in the toolbar flashes a pop-up dialog asking for selecting Destination Path to save the PST files.
