How To Recover Lost Or Deleted Pictures From Flash Card


A flash card is a data storage device with a flash memory, A USB flash card is a flash card with integrated Universal Serial Bus Interface. These USB flash drives are used for the same purpose as the floppy disks and the CDs. They are used for the storage as well as the backup of computer files. They use the mass storage standards, which are supported by the various operating systems like Windows, UNIX like systems, Linux and OS X. The Flash Cards are non-volatile nature like memory cards, solid-state drives and USB flash drives. The non-volatile nature will not require any power for maintenance of information on the chip. When compared with the hard disks they offer better kinetic shock resistance as well as faster read access times.

Images, digital clippings and pictures are often lost from the Flash card devices. There is a need to recover these items. There are some Flash Card recovery software, which can retrieve any of the lost and deleted videos, audios and the pictures and other files from such devices.

Reasons for Photo Loss

There are various types of reasons of photo loss from flash cards. These are:

Accidental Deletion of Pictures

Pictures very often get deleted due to accidentally pressing Shift + Del keys. Photo loss may often happen due to deletion of some essential pictures in place of the unwanted ones. Deletion of pictures in the flash memory card directs it not to the Recycle Bin because it is bypassed.

Memory Card Corruption

Card reader can be used to connect flash card memory cards with the computers. The photo loss situation arises due to the situation when the memory card is taken out of the card reader, while transferring from the flash memory card to the computer.

Virus Attack

The most common cause for the photo loss happens due to virus loss. The viruses cause deletion and corruption of pictures on the flash card. The file system of the memory card may get corrupt on account of the virus.

Steps of Photo Recovery by Software

Step 1: The Flash card is connected with a PC. The files types, which need to be recovered, are chosen.

Step 2: The Disk from where the data was lost is scanned. The target files are all found out. The Lost Disk drive is chosen, if the sure has lost a partition.

Step 3: After the completion of the scanning, the review shows the recoverable files in the form of a list. We use the recover option for getting the files back.

The recovered files are to be saved in a separate disk and not in the original disk, which lost the files.

Flash Card Recovery on Mac

Other than the reasons mentioned above, pictures may also be lost due to Formatting or the Reformatting operation of the digital camera. Damage to memory card can also happen due to unexpected turning off the camera. The photo rescue software for Mac OS X does not modify anything on the flash card, by writing on it. The photos are rescued from the flash card and then saved on the hard drive folder. The original file system is by bypassed and the sector data of the card is retrieved by the use of low-level access.

Flash Card Recovery on Windows

If the pictures are deleted from the flash card then the use of the flash card has to be done immediately, which causes permanent deletion of flash cards. Professional recovery software will need to be used for the retrieval of these deleted photos.

Blogging As A Legal Professional

Creating a strong, specific and informational law blog is an excellent means of drawing potential clients to your website and keeping current clients better informed of their rights. Inevitably, when the general public becomes curious about a legal situation, their first line of recourse in researching begins online. If you can create well-crafted blog posts that target specific legal issues, you’ll not only provide a valuable service. You’ll also strengthen and enlarge the reputation of your law firm.

Numerous lawyers discover that their clients are increasingly savvy about law terms and situations. However, much of the information found online can be misleading or vague. Creating a law blog, as a qualified attorney, can help to dispel much of the misinformation online. Naturally, the blog does not replace legal counsel. Emphasizing as much throughout the blog is a good measure.

In fact, the nature of a law blog is ideally suited to what online marketers and bloggers call “freemium services”. A certain amount of value, or information, is given away for free. This creates a feeling of goodwill, gratitude and familiarity. Eventually, all of that “pro bono” work translates to revenue, as a secondary tier of services are also made available, for set fees. In the case of a legal blog, any of the information you provide cannot be construed as legal counsel. Instead, every single post you create is, in effect, a “teaser”, which can motivate potential clients to seek out legal professionals for the full picture. If you write compelling, authoritative prose, you’ve already tipped the scales in your favor, of these clients seeking you out, personally.

Personal injury lawyers are among the types of attorneys who most visibly market themselves to potential clients. Many advertisements aim to communicate the lures of major accident or wrong-doing compensation to the general public. In fact, the compensation touting ads of personal injury attorneys have become so well-known in popular culture, that they even reach the point of parody in many television shows and movies.

The legal blog makes an excellent alternative to the “hard sell” approach of traditional advertising. Instead of directly telling the public to seek out your services, you are already setting up a relationship with them. Just by writing one helpful blog post, an investment of only a few hours, you can potentially reach hundreds or thousands of clients. Write the post effectively, and each person will feel that you have personally helped them out.

There’s much reward to be gained from a regular online blogging presence, and little risk involved. However, remember that there are hundreds of thousands of bloggers, who make no income at all on their hobby. On the other hand, there are a handful of superstar bloggers who have struck it rich, sometimes building up a career in blogging, and literally doing so from scratch. Whether your blogging becomes an asset to your brand comes down to one thing: content. Aim to make each post into something of genuine use to a specific audience. Do that, regularly, with a friendly, engaging tone, and you’re already well on your way to courting a larger client base.

Using Social Media As A Real Estate Agent To Drive Sales

There is no limit to what real estate agents should be doing if they want to make sure that they are attracting the most potential clients. This is especially true when you consider the fact that the housing market is back on an upswing and many agents are doing whatever they can to generate as much business as possible. While there are plenty of traditional methods for marketing for real estate agents, including everything from mail flyers to bus stop billboards, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that social media is now the best way to reach new clients. At the click of a button, real estate agents can reach countless people through the internet and social media. Here are some ways that real estate agents can use social media as a way to drive sales.

Reach More People

One of the most obvious reasons that real estate agents should be using social media to drive sales is because it will help them reach more prospective clients than ever before. Real estate agents know how difficult it can be to pick up the phone and start cold calling prospective buyers. In most cases, some people may not even be looking for a home and their time making the call is often wasted. However, thanks to social media, real estate agents can quickly contact everyone in their friend’s list, as well as connections that they have through those friends, just to see who may be interested in buying or selling a home. This makes for a much more expedient process, which will help the agent save time.

Generate More Attention

Another great way that real estate agents can drive sales through social media is by generating more attention and showing people that they care about their services. For example, if a real estate agent sells a home to a person and that individual then posts about their purchase online, the real estate agent can then comment on the status and say what a wonderful experience it was to work with them. As other people see this, they will know that the agent is someone who cares and is willing to work hard to find them a great home.

Advertise To The Target Market

There is a lot of wasted effort that goes into marketing to target audiences for a real estate agent. They may end up sending thousands of flyers in the mail and hoping for response, when a large percentage of those people are aren’t even in the market to buy or sell a home. However, social media allows agents the opportunity to find those who are in the market, which will help lower overall advertising costs.

Use Digital Media To Show Properties

Finally, social media also affords real estate agents the opportunity to show properties to prospective homebuyers, without even having to leave their office. By uploading photos and videos of a property, prospective buyers can determine whether or not they are interested in a home and then the real estate agent can go from there. This will cut down on wasted time driving around to different showings, while also speeding up the process of selling home as well.

Social media is an incredibly valuable tool for a variety of different markets. This is especially true in the case of real estate agents who want to drive more traffic and get more attention for their personal business.

Innovation Extends To Travel

Though travel planning has increasingly moved completely away from paper-and-pen legwork and now takes place largely online, this does not necessarily mean that the process is always seamless. In fact, as getting ready for a trip has become consumer-driven, every logistical step - no matter how it has been planned - has to be taken into account by the traveler themselves. Travelers need not fret about this situation: if anything, this decade has seen unprecedented advances in websites and apps trying to make the process of planning travel easier, cheaper, and less stress-inducing than ever before.

Kayak: A Search Engine for Flights and Hotels

One of the most difficult parts of making travel arrangements used to be having to compare flight prices and itineraries across dozens of websites before finally making a choice. Even more frustratingly, these flight prices sometimes changed just moments after a ticket was purchased. Kayak has become a major player in the online travel market by collecting price and ticket data for flights (even for carriers like Southwest) in one convenient search format that allows for customers to easily compare their options. Additionally, Kayak will predict whether flight prices are likely to increase or decrease, thus giving travelers a sense of how urgently they must make a purchase.

TripIt: Bringing Order out of Chaos

Even if using a travel search engine like Kayak, making travel arrangements often takes place over multiple different websites. This multiplicity of sources means it is all too easy to forget about a certain leg of the trip or otherwise be unprepared. TripIt has found success online by combating this exact problem. Travelers can email any travel information to TripIt and see it converted into a centrally located, easy-to-read itinerary. TripIt also allows these itineraries to be shared, making it quite simple for large travel groups to all be on the same page from the beginning of the trip to its conclusion.

HearPlanet: Eyes Up

Though working through travel apps might make the planning process significantly more convenient, it can also lead to spending most of a trip with one's nose practically pressed against a smartphone screen. The innovative company HearPlanet has identified this problem and attempted to solve it by making their collection of audio guidebooks available to travelers going to dozens of destinations. What makes HearPlanet more comprehensive than other audio guides is its potential for crowdsourced information: rather than being limited to traditional guidebook companies, locals or experienced travelers can add their own audio guide for those who want a more unique voice to be guiding them through their trip.

As with other sectors where technology companies have disrupted traditional business methods, travel planning has seen methods that were commonplace just a few years ago become quaint almost overnight. The common thread of the companies listed above is not simply their success online and in app form, but their attempts to transcend even the very confusion and disorganization that have been standard difficulties in travel planning for decades.

How To Raise Money Online

If you are looking for venture capital, what can you do to find that capital online? Fortunately, there are many resources available for those who are looking to get the money that they need to start a business or take their business to the next level. If you know where to look, raising capital can be easier than you think.

Talk to a Business Consultant to Find Out Where to Go

A business consultant may be able to steer you toward the venture capital sites that are willing to provide money to those who are just starting out. While you may not be able to attract the attention of a large venture firm, you may be able to attract a wealthy investor who is interested in working as a private citizen to help you build your company. Alternatively, you may be able to find crowdsourcing sites through your consultant that make it possible to find several smaller investors that are willing to pitch in to build your idea.

Start Your Own Fundraising Site

Adding a fundraising tool to your blog or website can make it easy to attract donations to help your company grow. The good news is that many online tools do not require that you know how to code before you add it. All you need to do is copy code from another source and drop it into your site. From there, the fundraising application will do the work for you. You can get money from people in your local area, throughout the country or throughout the entire world.

Offer Rewards to Encourage Donations

You can offer rewards to your donors to make it more likely that they will donate. For example, you can offer a company t-shirt to those who donate $5 or a finished version of the product that your company is making in exchange for $50. Those who donate $100 or more could be eligible to tour your facilities or have dinner with you. Depending on what you are making or how popular your company already is, you may be able to capitalize on your fame to encourage those donations.

Play up the Tax Deduction People Get

If your company is a nonprofit group, it may be possible for those who donate to your cause to tax a deduction on their taxes. This means that they get to help a worthy cause and get to lower their tax burden at the same time. Making others aware of this fact can significantly increase donations to your group. However, do not tell people of this possibility unless you know for sure that donors can get that deduction as this could be against the law.

Raising capital is easier to do thanks to the Internet. You can cozy up to venture firms or ask regular people to donate to your cause of allowing your company to grow and thrive. Over time, you may be able to offer equity to those investors, which will allow them to earn a return on their capital.

4 Mini-Site Masters

With data costing virtually nothing, more and more companies are turning to mini-sites to promote both their products and any promotions they might have running. From free kitchen design software to beer, these sites are meant to display information that would be otherwise impossible to fit on the regular site. They allow a strong focus on a specific item as opposed to the entire list of possibilities.

Digital Decorator

Perfect for anyone looking to remodel or redesign a room with décor, color and other objects, the Digital Decorator is a free mini-site that allows you to design your own room for a chance to win great prizes. From the façade to the bathroom, this online app gives you the ability to redo rooms with well over 200 colors of paint, 300 floor finishes, 350 countertop styles and 92 room styles. Aside from acting as free kitchen design software, users receive 25% off any of their purchases at participating stores. The mini-site is as easy to use as registering.

Time for Kids

Complete with a play on words, Time’s site dedicated to children is one of the more extensive mini-sties around. Almost an exact replica of their main site but loaded with book reviews, an entire portion dedicated to Antarctica and summer video game guides, Time has gone above and beyond what could be considered a mini-site. No matter the expansiveness of the information, it is still an incredible marketing tool that aims at younger kids, getting them to associate helpful information with the Time logo.

Le Louvre

Museums are even jumping on the bandwagon by exciting and tantalizing guests through the creation of mini-sites that complement their special exhibitions. Le Louvre, for instance, is currently running 15 separate sites all decorated to fit the time period as well as the art style of the tour. Each one comes with its own level of interactivity and pieces of information regarding the exhibit, visitor information, education and credits for the sponsors. This gives newer history buffs a chance to catch up on their Babylonian or Alexandrian info before heading out, allowing them to enjoy the art more.


If we are discussing mini-sites, we cannot forget the king of integration: Disney. Each section of their website is a mini-site if only because of the vast swathes of information they provide to guests. If you are on and want to check out their parks, the click takes you to a mini-site in a completely different fashion that links you to not only the parks but the cruise line and resorts. Clicking on the cruises brings you to yet another mini-site. This gives Disney the ability to alter and change different sections without worrying about its effect on everything else. They can also put up and take down pages as they see fit. While some mini-sites are used just for promotions, Disney displays how they can be used to not only tactfully feed users a lot of information but to expand without a complete design overhaul.

How To Take An Offline Business And Streamline It Online

It is harder for offline businesses to take their ventures completely online. In order for an offline business to do well online, the processes and platforms must be in place. Here is how to take an offline business and streamline it online.

Start with the customer experience. One of the easiest ways to take a business online is to focus on the customer service experience. In the beginning stages, a company should be able to field inquiries and accept payments online. This starts with having a website that is highly functional for the consumer. It is very important that a company be capable of delivering a quality customer service experience. According to one survey, 88 percent of people felt like their purchasing decision were influenced by a customer service review they saw online. DIY options for customers for customers can also reduce the amount of time dedicated to handling specific inquiries.

Next, you should be able to create opportunities to communicate with prospects online. The company should be able to efficiently handle inquiries online. In addition to fielding basic inquiries, a business should also be able to cultivate leads and engage them using email communications. And this means having a strong strategy to build a mailing list. This may be accomplished through landing pages, customer purchases, inquiries and subscription options directly on the website.

Next, a business should be able to engage mobile consumers completely online. One of the most important considerations is how well the website is designed to accommodate mobile customers. Customers are more likely than ever to user their mobile devices to access information about a website. According to research conducted by Google, 74 percent of consumers indicated that having a mobile website is very important to them. Additionally, two-thirds of mobile device users say that they are more likely to make a purchase from a company with a mobile website.

It’s important to have any brick and mortar business listed online in the various directories. Taking advantage of online directories is important because it is one of the most affordable ways to advertise a business. Doing this increases your relevancy in a niche and can improve your performance where search engines are concerned. The online directory is a very inexpensive way to generate traffic for your brick and mortar’s site. Some directories allow a business to handle quotes and transactions directly from their sites.

Take an inventory of processes regularly. This may require reviewing processes in place and identifying ways to optimize them to benefit customers. This can also mean surveying customers directly, asking them for insight on how to better improve processes. Creating metrics to assess and evaluate performance regularly will give you the insight needed to adapt processes to better meet the needs of your customer base.

After determining whether or not your business and services fit into an online environment, consider laying the foundation to support the business in an online environment. In following these steps, most offline businesses will be able to better capitalize off of opportunities available online. The best approach is to start small and gradually increase the number of processes offered online, incorporating DIY options for customers wherever appropriate while measuring performance in multiple areas.

WordPress Is Not The Only Way People Can Create A Blog

One of the most popular methods in recent memory that people have used to create blogs is WordPress, which is a software platform that novice and experts can use to develop blogs for a variety of purposes. There are several reasons why WordPress is a popular method to develop blogs; however, one of the main reasons is based on its own popularity because people are able to find many features and themes that are aimed at WordPress users. Therefore, it is relatively easy for most people to find a WordPress theme or features to meet their purpose for a blog.

Even though WordPress provides many features and themes along with a platform that is reliable, many people prefer to use other methods for creating blogs. One of the other methods that people use is HTML. For people unfamiliar with HTML, which is short for HyperText Markup Language, it is the standard markup language used to create web pages.

When people refer to blogs, many people think that it is different than a website. However, a blog is basically a website. In general terms, a website is a group of related web pages that are served from a single domain. The word blog is used instead of the more technically correct term website because the word blog is a better reference point to the purpose of a blog, which is to chronicle specific activities on a daily basis.

For people interested in using HTML to create a blog, there are certain things that people should consider such as web design and SEO. The reason that web design and SEO are important regarding the use of HTML is because both are necessary to create a good blog. Web design commonly referred to as website design and SEO commonly referred to as Search Engine Optimization take time to learn properly; however, once the skills and techniques are learned, people can create high quality blogs that can match the look or features of any WordPress blog.

Additionally, HTML code is the backbone for many WordPress themes. Therefore, as people learn the basics of HTML, people can look at the core HTML code behind WordPress themes to make modifications to WordPress themes based on the HTML code. Also, people can view the HTML code for current WordPress themes to think of ways to add various capabilities to their HTML blogs.

Regarding website design, it is the primary component of a good website. In addition, website design encompasses the appearance, functions, and capabilities of a website, and search engine optimization concerns the structure of a website in relation to its ability to do well in search engine results for specific keywords. As people learn website design and search engine optimization, they are able to create blogs that are visibly appealing, efficient, perform well in search engine results, and provide a good user experience.

Currently WordPress is a popular method that people use to create blogs. However, HTML is also a popular method, and HTML is also a core component of WordPress themes. In relation to blogs, HTML is very important. The people who decide to use HTML to create their blogs not only have a popular method at their disposal, but these people can use their HTML knowledge to modify existing WordPress blogs that contain HTML code.

5 Steps To Improve The Effectiveness Of Your Direct Mail Marketing

Direct mail marketing used to mean sending out a mass-mailing to everyone and hoping someone who cared about your product would first read it, and second, care enough to keep the mailing for future reference. Today, direct mail solutions start by defining the target, continue by creating a powerful message, get into gear with the delivery and finish by evaluating the entire effort.

Step number one is understand how to aim for your ideal customers. If you can describe your typical customer in terms of age, gender, locale or any other defining characteristics, you're halfway there. Work on more detail on who your target customer is and you'll then be able to purchase a mailing list customized for those demographics.

The second step is to make use of professional services at every stage in the process. Working with direct mail is not a do-it-yourself project. We've already mentioned buying a customized mailing list -- make sure your source is dependable and ready to meet your deadlines. Check out the samples and references from printers before committing to a print run.

The next step has to do with the content of your mailed message. Besides being compelling, your direct mail item should always include an action item for the receiver to do. You should also set a deadline by which the action item must be done, even if there is no such deadline. After all, you're not going to turn away a customer if they take the time to come to your store. Also include within the mailings a way such as a numerical code to identify customers who are responding to this specific mailing. It might be on the coupon a customer uses to get their free gadget or discount.

The fourth step is all about the timing. Will there be a special event occurring at your business? Any mass mailing describing the event must then, of course, be sent out and received before the event occurs. If a sale is revolving around a seasonal or holiday theme, then you do not want the mailing to be received after the special day. Direct mail solutions do not solve anything if they're received late. Be sure the company you hire for your direct mail projects knows the dates by which the work must absolutely and totally be completed.

The final step is to track your results. You must know if your direct mail campaign brought customers into your store or inspired them to call your toll-free number or prompted them to ask for a free consultation. This is the point where you use that special code you had printed on all the mailings sent out within this effort. Again, this is a time to use the professional services of a company experienced in providing direct mail solutions. Tracking and evaluating the results is just one of the many tasks these companies do as part of their normal client services.

Direct mail marketing done the right way will be a cost-effective and time-effective means of getting your message out to those customers you know are just waiting to hear from you. The right direct mail solution will help your business to make more money, a goal with which no one can argue.

Online money transfer is the use of the internet to instantaneously move money for the purpose of making payments or account transfers. This service incorporates speed, convenience and security in money transfer. It cuts on the demand to use papers or even make visits to the bank in order to send or receive money. It however requires registration of an account then activation of the account which may cost a little fee depending with the vendor. Once this is achieved, just a computer with internet access is required for this purpose.

The main reason for online money transfer services is for the ability to have fast transfer of money. For any individual looking for speed regardless of geographical distance has to make use of this service. It makes transactions instant unlike other forms that require paperwork to be filled for identification purposes from both the sender and receiver. They also happen to be cheaper. This is brought in by the high demand for this service and its ability for not incorporating too much paperwork. It only needs the availability of an internet connection.

People who work online are the ones in most need of online money transfers. The money transferred could be payments for work done, purchases of credits on websites that offer various services such as plagiarism checking and grammar correction, paying for advanced work software among others. Such money is shifted around between the owner, a transferring agency and the various recipients. The transferring agency has the capacity to hold the money in escrow and move it as requested by the owner to recipients along with instructions on what to do with the money. On their part, the recipients of the money receive it and then act according to the accompanying instructions.

Online money transfer can be integrated with bank accounts. This brings in convenience in carrying out transactions. Money can easily be moved through this service to conduct business from the comfort of your home. This means the time consumed having to visit a bank each time money is coming in and out will be eliminated. Money is directly credited and debited into your bank account just by making a few clicks. It also provides better rates in foreign exchange. This ensures you gain more by transferring the money directly to your account.

Some receiving organizations in online money transfers are banks and other institutions that can give the owner the money in form of hard currency. There are also other players in the end of the online money transfer chain who operate as individuals or small companies. These smaller players have faster remittance services but they charge significantly more than the banks and other well-established institutions. The smaller players are handy for people who want their money quickly since they do not have waiting periods that are put in place by banks to prevent money laundering.

Risk has to be eliminated when it comes to handling money matters. The use of emails in handling money has been replaced by online money transfer services. This is as a result of mail being intercepted which could lead to bank accounts being drained through the use of the routing number and account number. The money sender requires guarantee that the money will get to the recipient. Transactions made in online money transfers are recorded. They can then be used as reference point on how money is spent and gained.

However, there are limits set as to minimum and maximum amounts of funds transferable per transaction or per a certain period of time. Limits help in regulating the circulation of money in the accounts and reduce money laundering. Online money transfer has however proved it is here to stay. It has become one of the most sought out services enabled by the internet.

Is Galaxy S5 Fully Set To Compete With The Iphone 5S?

The iPhone 5S and Galaxy S5 are the two hyped, popular on demand smartphones in the market. The undying combat between the iOS and Android still continues and they are sure to be rivals for long. Whatever it is the, iPhone is all set to compete with the latest, yet to be released Galaxy S5.

Let’s look at the basic comparison between the both giant rivals.

Fingerprint Sensor

The Galaxy S5 sensor seems to be difficult to use with one hand. To access it, the user must swipe directly over the center of the button and cover it with their full finger. The user has to swipe starting from the bottom which is kind of effort involving and this makes it tough to use with one hand.  At the same time the iPhone 5s provides access to multiple scans of the user's finger and can be accessed from almost all angles. This makes the option of Fingerprint Sensor of iPhone 5s much easier compared to Galaxy S5

SoC and RAM:

Albeit it is not much possible to know every small detail hardware working of a smartphone, still it is always good to know why a gadget clicks.The Galaxy S5 implements the new Snapdragon 801 processor and also uses MSM8974-AC CPU variant, which boasts frequencies of 2.5GHz in place of 2.3 GHz.  On the other side, the processor also holds an Adreno 330 graphics chip and 2 GB of RAM.

On the opposite, the iPhone end, it adopts a 64-bit architecture. The Apple A7 SoC accompanies a dual-core Cyclone CPU clocked at 1.3 GHz, and a Power G6430 GPU. The SoC works side-by-side with 1 GB of RAM.

Because both uses different Operating systems... we cannot compare just by processing speeds as S5 uses Android (which is resource hungry) and 5S uses IOS 7(which is less resource hungry and uses an optimized SoC)


Talking about display, Samsung chose a wider display and Galaxy S5 features a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED Full High Definition. Also to add, Samsung uses AMOLED type display which has more saturated colors. On the other hand Phone 5s features a 4-inch display with 1136 x 640 resolutions at 326 ppi, which is still a stronger display for the iPhone. The Galaxy S5 is sure to lure the eyes of the user but when it comes to iPhone 5S, no innovations discovered.


8.1 mm, the Galaxy S5 is thicker than the 4” iPhone 5s, larger and heavier and clumsy which makes it unable to use in single hand. The Plastic built Samsung Display introduces perforated back refrain, which is available in four colors, including a golden version.Apple handset also comes in golden variant, but the iPhone is shaped in a quite a different way, witha premium metal and glass materials for the frames.


A7 chip with 64-bit architecture makes iPhone 5s features Apple's it an extremely unique device. It is the first smartphone in 64 bits. Apple's devices normally perform smoother and better than the Galaxy S handsets since the company manages to perfectly manage software with the hardware better. The Galaxy S5 comes with either a Snapdragon 801 chip or 2.1GHz Exynosocta-core processor. Though the hardware seems inspiring, Samsung processors normally perform better than they actually run.


In conclusion we can say that Samsung has adapted a lot of lot ideas from Apple, rather than being innovative. Both these smartphones are not one step ahead of each other. To know more, let’s wait for the new Galaxy Samsung S5 to hit the market soon. Apart from all the above mentioned comparisons, users have a great role in increasing the demand of a product. Users will have a personal interest and like towards a specific company and its products to which they are used to. This can eventually answer to the question if Galaxy S5 is fully set to compete with the iPhone 5S.

Lessons From Einstein You Can Apply on Your Blogs

You can learn many things from a genius like Albert Einstein. With his out of the box imagination, and  above average intelligence, he has achieved a lot in the fields of science and technology.

Scientifically, you can learn many things from Einstein, but even bloggers and writers can use his words to improve their craft. Here are a few life lessons from this scientific genius that you can apply in your blogs:

“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”

Every writer has their own style. Comparing your writing skills to others, and being someone you are not, won't take you anywhere else. You have to understand your strengths, weaknesses, and passion to better write blogs that will reach your audience. Novice bloggers are good recipients of this advice. Sometimes, being new in the writing world, makes them consevative writers. They just copy other writers and forget about their own voice and style.

“I think and think for months and years. Ninety-nine times, the conclusion is false. The hundredth time I am right”

See how perseverance works? Not because your blogs don't work on attracting readers and traffic, doesn't mean you should stop what you are doing. It takes planning, perseverance and time for your website to achieve your set goals. Einstein understands this that is why, despite failing multiple times, he still works on improving his ideas and achieve great results in the end.

“A man should look for what is, and not for what he thinks should be.”

Albert Einstein made innovative inventions because of his superb imagination. Every writer should imbibe Einstein within them. They should think outside the box and think more than the conventional stories, or plots everyone is familiar. Stop following formulas when you are writing, only when you oppose the norm will you create blogs that will drive better traffic and share.

“If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.”

As a writer it is your job to tell stories or information that everyone can understand. Brevity and information are the keys to creating quality articles. When you are writing, keep in mind that you are writing for the people. You have to reach out to them and make sure that they can understand what you are saying. Saying things in the simplest form also makes you more credible and believable.

“Imagination is more important than knowledge.”

Always think outside the box because imagination is the true power of any writer. Sometimes, situations push you to publish topics that are already published in another website. To make it worthy of reading, you have to think of fresh angles and ideas to make the topic look new. Often, being imaginative works better than sticking to conventions.

“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

Aside from blogging, analyzing reader's interests is important to improve your site's quality. If you keep on writing the same things and not achieving anything, maybe it's time to try new strategies to boost your website. It is a process of trial and error, and learning from the experts. It is truly insane to keep doing the same strategies and expect an improvement in traffic or sales.

“A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.”

As you might have known, managing a blog is difficult. You are bound to make errors. Do not be afraid to commit mistakes because these will make you a better blogger. You will learn to understand how your readers think, and write articles they like. You will also understand how the Google algorithm works.

Take these lessons by heart and you won't only improve your blog and writing style, but also your life.

Most Expensive Pay Per Click Campaigns

Every year businesses and marketing companies around the globe search for new ways to increase revenue and traffic to their website. Publicity is generally always a good thing and increased number of unique visitors to a website usually results in a larger number of sales. Businesses are constantly competing for the top spots on search engine result pages but reaching the top 3 natural links is often a long tedious and challenging task.

Pay per click or adword marketing campaigns have become ever more prevalent in recent years as companies have began to realise its potential to increase profits exponentially. A PPC campaign is the process of bidding on a phrase that you have deemed relevant to your industry. When your paid link is followed through by a potential customer you will be charged according to the amount bid for.

Paid links are so popular because they eliminate the need to earn a top spot in natural search listings. Paid links are always placed in prime locations of the website and taking google as an example we would mostly likely see these phrases as the top 2-3 search results (usually highlighted in yellow) and on the right hand side of a page. By having links in such opportune positions you will significantly increase the chances of consumers visiting your website.

The price of each click is determined by many factors and can start from pennies per click, however this is not always the case any many businesses find themselves paying upwards of $140.

Competition is generally regarded as the reason for inflated costs. An example of this would be the search term 'Mesothelioma attorney' which along with many other asbestos compensation phrases holds a spot as one of the most expensive phrases. It was suggested that a legal firm in Florida was paying upwards of $200 for each click owed to competition in that area being so great. Asbestos compensation claims are a rather lucrative industry so attorneys are willing to pay 'over the odds' to not only generate a lead but to prevent a rival company from benefiting from the lead.

The type of industry that the search is related to can also affect the cost of a phrase, industries that sell legal services, web space and insurance dominate the top spots of most expensive PPC phrases. Most legal services are around $100 per click whilst insurance can range anywhere from $30-$80 per click.

Google is by far the most popular place for businesses to bid for keywords using their adwords platform. This is due to the fact that over 60% of people use google with the other sharing the other 40%. This give you more opportunity to bring potential custom to your business. Other search engine such as Yahoo and bing offer a similar service and are usually cheaper per click.

Finally the length of a search term can make or break a PPC campaign, a phrase that is overly broad may acquire many unique visitors however the amount of people who purchased your service would be lower (due to you not being quite what they want) and you would be paying a much higher rate per link. An overly specific search term would be cheaper and would receive far less visitors however the percentage of people who go on to buy something would be no doubt higher.

An example of this would be a company selling custom t-shirt, paying for the search term 'buy a t-shirt' would yield vast amounts of visitors however not many would purchase the item whereas 'buy a black t-shirt with a picture of a dog' would have far less visitors but a greater turn around rate.

Author Author - Adam Howard writes for Atrium on workers health. Asbestos is the biggest killer of industrial workers so litigation in this area is very lucrative. Due to this it is very competitive which is reflected in paid search click prices.

Google: How Fast Is Our Hummingbird

15 years have past since Google Search first appeared on the stage. Back in 1998 the searching process was far from perfection:  the huge machine called computer is on, the user type in keywords into the search system and the system manages to find several websites with the required information. Now it sounds funny, but at that time it was a miracle!

The whole process and the devices have changed since 1998. It is so easy to find billions of websites with one click on a tiny device in your pocket. Search systems are powerful, quick and very convenient. You can even ask the question in a loud voice and your inquiry will be satisfied. What else can be done here? Are there possible improvements? Google proves that there is always space for making changes and striving for better result.

New search algorithm from Google has got a beautiful name of a small but smart bird – the Hummingbird. It was presented on the press-conference dedicated to the 15th anniversary of Google.   The name for the new offspring was chosen in order to emphasize the accuracy and high speed of its work. The company said that changes in the search engine had been made a month ago and covered 90% of search queries, but the notification on the transition to the new search algorithm Hummingbird was decided to give on the 15th anniversary of Google. The press conference took place in the garage, where 15 years ago Sergey Brin and Larry Page had started a glorious history of  the search giant.

Amit Singhal, the head of Google's core ranking team, says that the current updated search algorithm is perhaps the most radical since 2001, the year he began to work in the company. Last major update search engine Caffeine was aimed primarily at increasing the speed of information indexing rather than the processing of the collected information. Hummingbird handles requests not only for keywords, but also according to their meaning. Thanks to this function, the inquiries made by users can be longer and more complex.

As the nature of inquiries has changed recently, the need to improve search algorithm appears. Earlier search inquiries were made in the form of short phrases with a large number of keywords. Today a user can make up search inquiries with the help of colloquial phrases, sometimes quite long and complex. The second reason, which made ​​it necessary to use a new search algorithm is the development of voice search. The time offers new standards, gadgets and approaches for search systems, that is why now is the right time for changes.

Tamar Yehoshua, vice president of the research department, demonstrated the abilities of new search algorithm to understand the associated inquiries. She offers Google to open photos of the Eiffel Tower, and immediately afterwards, without specifying what exactly she is talking about, asks questions: "What is its height?", "When was it built?", "Show me the photos of the building process". Next she presented the way voice search Google works offering to find information about the Impressionist painters.

Unfortunately, there is no way to compare the results of search system efficiency "before" and "after" the introduction of the new search algorithm. However, Google gives a few examples. For instance, request «acid reflux prescription» (acid reflux recipe) used to offer a list of medications that may be useless for users who sought for general information on the treatment and general information about the necessity to take medicine. The new algorithm offers the article containing this exact information.

Is it possible that the new search algorithm from Google made the search system worse? Hummingbird creators are sure that is unlikely, saying that they can’t approve that search system is better now, still, there are no evidences of dissatisfaction on the part of users. As everybody knows, people complain when they notice errors but they rarely see improvements.

Time will show how fast and smart Hummingbird is. A month after its start new algorithm justifies our hopes.

5 Tips For Promoting Your Blog With Facebook

Facebook can help you gain a loyal following for your blog. However, you can’t just put your blog posts on Facebook and expect people to click on your links. You need to use some strategies in order to get lots of clicks.

Have a Good Image:

Facebook relies heavily on images. If your blog post doesn’t have a good image, it will likely get lost in the shuffle. Pick an image that will stand out. Also, make sure it represents your post and will resonate with your core audience. That way, it will get people’s attention and they will click to read the blog.

Interact with Your Audience:

People like to reciprocate. It’s human nature. Thus, if you interact with your fans, they will be more likely to interact with you. With that in mind, you need to take the time to read their status updates and blog posts. Comment and hit the like button from time to time. Then, people will be more apt to check your posts out.

Ask Them What they Want to Learn:

Use Facebook to ask people what they want to learn. You can create polls, or simply ask a question. Once you get some responses, let readers know that you will answer their questions in your next blog post. Then, write a blog that addresses those questions. This will attract a lot of readers. After all, people will love the fact that you created a post just for them.

Be Consistent:

Come up with a posting schedule and follow it. That way, people will know when to expect your blogs. Make sure your schedule is balanced so you don’t overwhelm people with blogs. For instance, you might want to post one to two blogs a week to your Facebook account instead of five. Five blogs will overwhelm Facebook users, but one or two blogs will grab their interest

Be Professional:

Spammers love Facebook. Because of that, it is essential that legitimate blog owners come across as professionals. That means you need a professional domain name. You also need a professional theme. Fortunately, both are easy to get. You can get a professional .com from different companies online. You can also find professional Premium WordPress templates online.

If you use these tips, you will be able to get more traffic to your blog. Then, you can create a solid following of loyal readers. Those readers will stay with you as long as you continue to provide quality content.

What Does “Great Website Architecture” Mean?

Getting a good amount of traffic for a website is something that everyone strives for, but what does one have to offer when people stumble upon a website? It is important to address several key points that make up a good website: it needs to be visually stimulating, it needs to have a comprehensive layout, it needs to allow people to get to the pages that they need without too much hassle, it needs to provide information about the blogger/artist/company and their work, showcase all that they have to offer, provide social media sharing capabilities, as well as have plenty of useful information about the niche that the blogger/artist/company is operating in.


Wow, that does sound like a lot, but it doesn’t have to be all that complicated. In fact the key is incorporating all these elements in your website design, but still managing to keep it concise and having a home page that allows quick navigation through the rest of the website. A good website is a perfect balance between utility and flashiness, with a big emphasis on content and media that provides the viewer with something to actually view. Let’s go into a bit more detail on the more important elements of effective website architecture.

The Great Homepage And Linking To Other Pages:

The homepage is you base of operations, so to speak. You will want to have links directly to your most popular pages and news of new offers, deals or events. This is where aesthetics meet functionality and where you have the opportunity to cram in colorful images and information using sliders, as well as have drop boxes that are effectively categorized to allow the viewers to find what they need. Now, a very important point is to avoid going link-crazy and having the viewer click through layers and layers of pages – everything they need should be within 2-3 clicks from the homepage.

Categorizing And Crosslinking Pages:

Being able to find what you need quickly is the most important thing for a person visiting your website, and this is where so often the designer drops the ball. Certain pages that can fit into multiple categories should be accessible through several different paths, and the categories themselves need to be effectively broken down depending on what you have to offer. For example, if you are selling cars you are hardly going to categorize them by color. In that case, you would have categories like hatchbacks, sedans, sports cars, minivans and so on. You could also have several categories based on secondary features that people are interested in - high mileage per gallon, good family cars and cars with the highest safety rating. A nice little Renault would fit into several of these categories and people would be able to get to that particular page through several different paths. Then on that Renault model page you mention that Renaults are some of the safest cars and you link to the page with all the other Renault models and the page that features the cars with the highest safety ratings. This way you make an interconnected web of relevant pages throughout the website.

The Layout Of A Good, Informative Page:

An informative page will feature all that a viewer needs – no less, no more. It is important to focus on elements that will allow the greatest usability of a page – how is it linked internally, does it link to other pages on the website are you cross-linking to other websites from the page? Within the page itself, navigation bars can help tremendously, particularly for e-commerce websites that might have several pages of products within a category and the subcategories help users find what they want without having to click through ten pages and scroll down each one. A blog page is essential for providing useful content and additional information, so that you don’t have to clutter up other pages – having access to recent and relevant posts enhances usability as well.

When looking at website architecture you need to be constantly thinking about the average user; what will they be looking for and how easy they will find it to navigate the website? Testing your website can help provide you with useful clues about optimizing your design features, but you will need a good base to begin with. So put yourself in the average Joe’s shoes and take another look at how your website is structured.

How To Start An Online Fashion Store

E-commerce and fashion are two of the most lucrative industries in the world. It makes sense, then, that combining the two would present an excellent opportunity. That said it is not as simple as taking some pictures of clothes and putting them online.

What is the sensible path to take when starting an online fashion store?

Identify a Gap:

A business in any sector will only succeed under one of two circumstances.

  • Is the demand for a product or service so great that there are multiple opportunities for new businesses?
  • Does a new business offer something beyond what those already in the industry are able to do?

Sometimes, both of those will need to be satisfied to be successful. Where is your ‘in’ when it comes to the market?

Without a reason to go into business, or something new to offer, you will struggle. How many businesses do you know that have been successful in a competitive market, simply by turning up and doing the same as everybody else does?

Try it Out:

Going into e-commerce is difficult, yet there are many benefits and advantages. Sites such as eBay and Amazon give you the opportunity to try out your products before ‘taking the plunge’ and paying for your own site hosting, design, and e-commerce plug-in.

Note that this is essentially a small market research exercise. Success on these sites doesn’t necessarily mean you will rake it in when the time comes to go it alone, while failure should not necessarily discourage you not to go further.

Establish a reputation on these sites, pay for featured listings if you have to, and you will get a good idea of what you can achieve. Often, a successful eBay shop, for example, is a great platform for migration to a standalone site. Some e-commerce businesses even link to Amazon and eBay through their own sites without having a buying platform actually within their design.

Think Beyond Fashion:

21st century consumers are more diverse and demanding than ever. You can have the most desirable clothing designs, be on point and on trend with everything you sell, have a beautiful looking website, a trustworthy payments partner, and a fast checkout process, and still not make as much as you thought you would.

Today’s consumer thinks about more than the price on the ticket. How did your business come about? Why should they buy from you? Essentially, you need to tell consumers the story that helped you identify the gap in the market from earlier.

Large e-commerce businesses are doing this in order to appeal to more people, so as a start-up it is a ‘must do’ step when it comes to building trust.

Invest Online:

Search engine marketing and social media are both excellent ways to push a new online fashion store. Search will take more of a financial investment, while social media will be more time intensive. However, giving both the necessary resources will leave you much better set to capitalise on the market opportunities and become a success.
