OnePlus 5 tips and tricks: about your classy flagship killer

OnePlus 5 tips and tricks: about your classy flagship killer

What is not in OnePlus 5 ?

When it was echoed everywhere that "OnePlus 5 is one of the best ever
smartphone in 2017", I couldn't stop myself from getting one. Although I agree
that I was already in need of one, I swear "OnePlus 5" over-fulfilled that
need.

Woww!!. That nerve-protruding moment when I unpacked my new Smartphone Oneplus
5, is just ... aah.. unexplainable :P How lucky and choosy I am? - Well, to buy
this classy flagship phone, as soon as it was launched.

Features that you will never imagine :

1. Cuts to Oneplus 5 Camera.

 Oneplus 5 has a shortcut tweak for turning on the Camera. This feature is active by default. The shortcut for the camera is also available in Galaxy S8’s home button double-tap or the Moto Z’s dual twist gesture. But what makes Oneplus 5 unique matters!!

active by default. The shortcut for the camera is also available in Galaxy S8’s
home button double-tap or the Moto Z’s dual twist gesture. But what makes
Oneplus 5 unique matters!!

Just double-press the power button on the right-hand edge of the device. You
would jump straight to the phone’s excellent dual-camera setup even when the
phone is locked. You can deactivate it via Settings > Buttons and flicking the
‘Press power button twice for camera’ toggle. As easy as told na?


2. The Spectacular Split screen mode.

Run two apps simultaneously via a smart split screen view. You may have to text 2 of your GFs at a time -- maybe in one via Hike and the other via Whatsapp :P. Seriously, I never had to ;) Then choose Oneplus 5 without a second as it has large and a vibrant display with super powered RAM.The split screen facility of OnePlus which I'm in love with is not too hard to activate. That is a shortcut options which like others mentioned above.

That is a shortcut option which like others mentioned above.

You could Assign the ‘Open/close split screen’ option to a button (to double
tap of the home key or long press of the recent apps buttons). Select one of
the open apps in the carousel to pop it into half-screen view and then try
resizing the two open app windows by dragging the central bar up and down and
exit split screen by repeating your newly-set shortcut command.


3. OMG! That Screen!!

The Valiant OnePlus 5’ has a 5.5-inch display of 1080p. Offering an
exaggerated picture OnePlus has a wide range of alternative screen
calibration options.

Peek for Display > Screen calibration and select one of the four presets. You
could also choose ‘Default’ and create your own level of color warmth using a
simple slider.


4. Oneplus 5 bokeh.

 It exists as a stand-alone shooting mode within the camera app. As you swipe left for switching to video recording, swipe right for ‘Depth effect’ mode. Then place your object between 0.3 to 2 meters away from the camera and take a shot in portrait or landscape. The OnePlus 5 uses both cameras to create the bokeh effect. As a result you would get crisp subject and a heavily defocused background.

On the time of the announcement of OnePlus 5, we were told about its new
dual-camera system which could produce a bokeh effect. Ever wondered how to
take this?

5. What the Shelf!! :P

Shelf, the screen that is accessed by swiping to the left from the main homescreen. A collection of widgets with a permanent weather report on top, brings it all together into one screen.

To add widgets to the Shelf, tap the ‘+’ button at the bottom of the screen,
followed by ‘Widget’. To remove or change the position of the widgets, treat
them like you would an app icon and press and hold.


6. Lock screen notifications :

You can now keep an eye on the notifications without unocking the handset. Well this feature is already available in iphone. Whereas OnePlus hasn’t activated this option by default. If you are not as gentle as me, the ‘Hide sensitive notification content’ will help you keep your private notifications away from others.

Go to Settings > Notifications and hit the Settings icon at the top. Tap the
‘On the lock screen’ option and select ‘Show all notification content’.


7. Special Reading Mode

Reading mode is a setting that essentially makes reading eBooks more pleasant and natural. Swipe to Settings > Display > Reading Mode and manually turn on Reading Mode with the appropriate toggle. You could better choose ‘Add apps for Reading Mode’ so that it would activate automatically at the timely place.

8. Alert slider

Like the iPhone, you can set your phone to ‘Silent’ or ‘Ring’ with a mechanical switch located on the left hand edge of the handset. What makes this more interesting in the Oneplus is that, the third option - ‘Do not disturb’ which is highly customizable.

Figure this out at Settings > Alert Slider > Do not disturb.


9. One-handed notifications

With OnePlus you can swipe down from anywhere on the main home screens to access the notification menu. Just try this!!


10. Set your shortcuts

You can now assign shortcuts to the home, back, and recent apps key - for a
sustained press or a double tap. Go to Settings > Buttons and follow down the
Home button, Recents button, and Back button headings. Tap on ‘Double tap
action’ or ‘Long press action’ and peek into the provided 10 shortcut options
to fix yours. Also, add shortcuts for a voice search, open the last used app,
open the notification center, etc.

Why Oneplus 5?

The OxygenOS :

What could match the custom OxygenOS of OnePlus 5’s? It is relatively light
re-skinning of Android 7 Nougat.

"OxygenOS remains true to the goal of delivering a pure Android experience
with powerful enhancements. Features you've come to expect from OnePlus like
off-screen gestures and customizable buttons are built right in, but you won't
find any unnecessary gimmicks". - Oneplusstore.

Oneplus 5 Price :

Finally, it's not that easy to find any smartphone delivering these set of
elaborate features for $517/INR32999.

Personally, I could feel that this smartphone has a remarkable value for the money that is spent.

Buy your piece. Starts at   32,999/-

Top 5 of the Coolest VR Gadgets in 2017

Top 5 of the Coolest VR Gadgets in 2017

5 of the Coolest VR Gadgets in 2017 :


Have you ever felt that it is all about headsets? When people go crazy on reading about some gadget, it also means that they are more probably willing to try one.


Virtual Reality is within our reach today - The GearVR, Oculus Rift and HTC Vive have proved it and they have made a really solid case for virtual reality as an industry. Let me walk you through the most amazing VR gadgets which are smashing each other in the market.


1. Omnidirectional VR Treadmills : Price: $500+





The Omnidirectional VR Treadmills began circulating on Kickstarter back in 2013. The first producer to receive global recognition for using movement-based technology was US-based Virtuix Omni.


“Hands down the most immersive gaming experience we’ve seen so far.” – Business Insider


Funny!! Its fun to build up some muscle tone in our body while heroically charging towards a fire-breathing dragon in Skyrim, or frantically escaping brain-hungering ghouls in horror-based experiences such as Resident Evil 7.


2. Virtual Reality Suits – Real Life Feedback Price: $549+





Till now, VR contents relied on what you can see, and what you can hear. The concept of being able to actually feel, amazing!! as it’s time to take a look at the suits. More specifically, the suits have been built specifically to give the wearer feedback from the game.


These vests seem simple enough, and definitely appear to serve their basic function, some manufacturers have aimed a bit higher in terms of technical aspirations.  You could check their launch video to get a better sight!
Am I boring you? Just take a break and Angel or Devil Slots using the coolest VR headset.


3. Haptical VR Gloves Price: $300+


One of the most limiting aspects of virtual reality is the quality and general feel of the controllers. VR gadgets should be practical.


By letting you interact with your environment and digital experience with your fingers, it’s something unimaginable and thrill-centered!


4. Roto VR – Mechanized Virtual Reality Chair Price: $699+


Has anyone ever wanted to learn how to drive through virtual technology ? Roto VR is a mechanized chair built for use with VR-based devices. It comes out-of-the-box with impressive 360° technology, allowing you to navigate omnidirectionally in whatever game you choose.


Roto has one power slot in the back of the chair, so there is no need to worry on unplugging the whole thing when immersed in an experience or being in-game.


Yeah!! You need to spend few bucks experience these!!


5. Leap Motion VR Price: $80+


Leap Motion makes it possible for you to use your hands to navigate in virtual reality without the use of either a glove or controllers of any kind. One of the most interesting things about Leap Motion is that more than 200,000 developers currently involved Leap Motion. Cheap in price when compared to other competitors is what spearheading the success of Leap Motion.


These VR gadgets improves the utilization of virtual reality. In the fore-coming days, we can expect varied new brands of VR who might deliver add-on's and also VR might turn into a tough industry.

Why SSL? The Importance of SSL Certificates.

Why SSL? The Importance of SSL Certificates.

The Importance of SSL Certificates


SSL or Secure Sockets Layer refers to a specific type of security that is used for websites that  process sensitive information, including credit card numbers


What is SSL?


SSL or Secure Sockets Layer refers to a specific type of security that is used for websites that

process sensitive information, including credit card numbers, names, phone numbers, etc. This

protocol creates a secure connection between the web browser used by the customer of the site

and the server of the company they are interacting with. SSL is incredibly important for all

websites that sell any goods or services because it keeps customer information private and

secure.

Encrypting Information


An SSL certificate’s primary function is to encrypt sensitive information so that only certain

parties are able to read or interpret it. A lot of internet forums use these certificates to ensure that

all users’ information stays secure and out of the wrong hands. The more passes the information

makes through different computers, the more secure it is. These certificates put random

characters into the information they are trying to protect so that anyone who comes upon it

through nefarious means cannot even understand it. This means that even if a hacker gains access

to the information, they will not be able to interpret at all.

Giving Your Customers Peace of Mind


When you use SSL certificates with your website, you will provide your customers with peace of

mind
. Everyone who visits your website will be able to see that you have an encryption protocol

in place because instead of the traditional “http” in your website’s URL, they will see “https.”

There is a huge difference between these two protocols, and “https” has become synonymous

with security and protection of sensitive information. Any reputable online merchant will have

these encryption protocols in place to protect their customers from malicious cyber attacks that

could potentially compromise the information they have submitted.

Authentication


It is very important that all of the information on your website, especially customer information,

is sent to the right server without any third parties gaining access to it illegally. A server

certificate is also issues when you obtain an SSL certificate, which shows that the provider of the

certificate is trustworthy and reputable. Your customers will be able to read these documents to

confirm that the SSL certificate that your website is using is current and valid.

Accepting Payments


You will find that an SSL certificate plays a crucial role in accepting payments from customers.

Online businesses that want to in compliance with all Payment Card Industry rules and

regulations must obtain this type of certificate. There must be adequate encryption with the

certificate, which means at least 128-bit. These standards confirm that the SSL certificate comes

from a trusted and reliable source because it uses the appropriate level of encryption to protect

information that goes through the website. If you do have this type of certificate, you simply will

not be able to accept credit card payments. Anyone who is interested in running an online store

will need to have this security protocol in place before they can begin accepting any sort of

electronic payments for goods and/or services.

Protection Against Phishing


Another important reason to obtain an SSL certificate is that doing so will protect your website

and customers against phishing
emails that contain malicious links to duplicate websites that are

designed to acquire their information illegally. These links are commonly disguised as

advertisements, and they are designed to get the credit card information of a website’s customers.

Most people who build and launch these phishing sites cannot get an SSL certificate, so

customers are not likely to stay on them because of the absence of “https” in the URL.


Gaining the Trust of your Customers


By going through the proper channels and obtaining an SSL certificate for your website, you will

be able to gain and retain the trust of your customers. These days most people who go on a

website to purchase something look for the “https” in the URL to see if the website is secure or

not. Online stores that do not have one of these certificates will have a very difficult time gaining

the trust of the people who visit their website. If you want your customers to trust you and your

site, you will need one of these certificates.

How to Call a JavaScript Function From a String - Javascript Tricks

How to Call a JavaScript Function From a String - Javascript Tricks

eval is evil in JavaScript! The MDN eval page states:

Obsolete This feature is obsolete. Although it is still supported by browsers, its usage is discouraged in new projects. Try to avoid using it. eval executes a string containing code,

e.g. eval("var x = 'Hello from eval!';"); console.log(x);


eval raises several issues:
Security: your string can be injected with other commands by third-party scripts or user input. Debugging: it’s difficult to debug errors — you have no line numbers or obvious points of failure. Optimization: the JavaScript interpreter cannot necessarily pre-compile the code because it could change. While interpreters have become increasingly efficient, it’ll almost certainly run slower than native code.

Unfortunately, eval is very powerful and it’s easy for less experienced developers to overuse the command. Despite the warnings, eval still works — even in Strict Mode — but you can normally avoid it. In the past it was primarily used for de-serializing JSON strings but we now have the safer JSON.parse method.

reference: https://www.sitepoint.com/call-javascript-function-string-without-using-eval/

question: How do I execute a JavaScript function when I have its name as a string?



So that’s another reason to stop using eval. As a bonus, this solution is safer, less error prone, easier to debug and will normally execute faster. I hope it helps.

Add Custom Domain to your Github Page Free

Add Custom Domain to your Github Page Free

As you may grasp by currently, this site is hosted on GitHub Pages. There is no limit to what number “sites” you'll be able to host on GitHub Pages if you utilize the project pages method, but the by default, the URL of your website would be either http://USER_NAME.GitHub.io or (if you’re using project pages) http://USER_NAME.GitHub.io/SITE_NAME. Which is wholly cool if you solicit from me, but typically, we’d like to have our own custom name that we got with our own hard-earned money.

After some googling to compare name registrars, I settled on Namesilo, largely as a result of they’re one of the most cost effective around, and honestly I haven’t had any trouble with them. Switching nameservers was easy, whois privacy is free, that’s about all I want truly. I’ve bought 3 domain names through them so so much and don’t arrange on shift to anyone else anytime presently.

Normally the documentation on GitHub is a cinch to follow on, but somehow the setting up of custom domains tutorial simply flew over my head. The first time i attempted it, I ended up on a roundabout link journey between fixing a custom domain with GitHub Pages, Tips for configuring a CNAME record with your DNS provider and concerning custom domains for GitHub Pages sites. I seriously think this a downside with Pine Tree State, not GitHub.

I also needed to use Cloudflare with my website, but in retrospect, this actually simplified things. If you have never detected of Cloudflare and would love to search out out a lot of, you can examine this diary post by the Cloudflare team explaining simply that. Full disclosure, I never truly got the custom domain to work right simply through Namesilo.
