The most dangerous issue on a Smartphone or Tab PC

I bought one of the expensive, best and well known branded Smartphone a year ago (I don’t like to mention the name); the performance was an outstanding and no doubt about it. I used to enjoy that Smartphone which gave me enough benefit out of it for my personal and official works in one go. The days were gone and I was carrying it like an intelligent and prestigious one.

Near about a year usage of it, unfortunately it felt down from my pocket to just carpeted floor while I was sitting on the office chair, it could be of maximum 2 to 3 feet distance. That’s it, my dream broken like anything else on that day due to no display of the phone.

The Smartphone cost was around the same price of branded Laptop. Hmmm, what else I can do at that moment except some self-experiment on technical issue to find out what was wrong after it’s felt down. 

I was able to just receive calls only and no display at all, I can't even make a calls. It shall have either display damaged or mother board issue or lightning issue. This has to be analyzed and tell me by its customer service or local technician only.

The customer service in reply said that it may cost around Rs 4000 to Rs 5000 in case if it just mother board issue or display issue, it can’t be solved if other issues than stated. Now, it seems like ‘I have to pay’ definitely for nothing more than it's just felt down, or possible drop down test failure from company.

I asked customer service representative to reduce its repairing and servicing charges, they said it can’t be done but they need to first check it and let me know the status soon. I waited for around 1 hour and they replied that it is not guaranteed that it will get display back even if they put new display set. Possible for other issue too. I lost warranty period too and forgot about its insurance. Oh God, now the situation is like it is just a dummy set or broken gadget or useless scrapped toy on my hand.

The next step to reach any expert or local mobile technician to re-check it once again for the status. Yes, the local technician too explained that the set may face the same issue even if they fix with branded display. Hard to find same model dummy motherboard set to replace it or hard to get its lighting in case if it is really a lighting issue. No solution yet but I have to either sell it in least price in whatever dealer says or try to throw it away or try to fix the problem at any cost.

Yes, challenge begun more, I gave it to one of the technician who said this is not the display issue but lightning issue only since display screen area is not broken or tampered and possible for internal damage only. He said another thing is that, other may not do it or may charge you more for this issue but I will charge just Rs 2000 to create specially and make lightning IC work and fix it. 

This lightning IC will not be available even in its showroom or across India but needed to specially create/ make it as alternate one or take from same model set. Yes, I got little breath and fully believed on him to repair the device. He took more than 2 days and created special lighting IC for it and fixed it to get back its charming once again. Thank God, we have done the job. It is working fine now. This is one of the dangerous issue (lighting) since it is not available in the showroom or technician or anywhere to fix it.

Thus, I hereby make a resolution this New year to change the device which has no issue of lighting and passed drop down test etc. I also try to check Micromax Canvas Tab P666 which can help me achieve that, and my job.

This article is written for the Happy Hour contest of Micromax Canvas Tab P666 in association with IndiBlogger.

How to use Google Maps better and efficiently on Mobile

Maps have perhaps become an essential part of our everyday life. From understanding a new city, getting to a meeting quickly, planning a vacation  to getting recommendations for local businesses, Google Maps can help.

How to use Google maps effectively?

Here are some quick tips and shortcuts to help you learn how to use Google Maps more efficiently on your mobile:

  Voice guided turn-by-turn navigation: Let Google Maps for mobile help you get there more easily by getting voice-guided assistance. Simply search for your destination, and then tap on the blue car icon that appears to the right of the place’s name. 

   Once you enter the Directions menu, select which route option you prefer and tap on the blue “Start navigation” option to get voice-guided turn-by-turn directions to where you need to go. Users also have the option to change the endpoint or start point and then start the navigation.

 Hindi navigation support has been added for turn-by-turn voice navigation in Hindi.
  To use the feature and hear voice-guided instructions in Hindi, you will need to select Hindi as the default language from Settings -> Language and Input.

 Save and view offline maps: Next time if you don’t have an data connection, you can view a map even when you aren't connected to the Internet. In places where offline maps are available on the Google Maps for Mobile app, you can select and download a specific area on the map. Here are some quick tips for using maps offline:

  Move the map to the area you’d like to save
  Touch inside the search box at the top of the map, and scroll down to the bottom of the page. Just touch ‘save map’ to use it offline
  You can also search for a city such as “Gurgaon” and scroll down and use “save maps to use it offline”.

 Explore local businesses: If you want to find recommendations for hotels, restaurants, and things to do, just touch inside the search box and then explore. You can browse by choosing a category like – drink, eat, play etc. and maps will throw all suggestions basis the search. Once you select the place, just swipe upwards to see the full details. The search results will also mention the distance of these restaurants / hotels from your current location.

Once you have found the place, swipe the info sheet up to find more information about the place.

  See a list instead of a map: Rather than a mass of dots scattered across the map, it is easier to see a list of near-by places. To see a list of your search results, type a search, tap on the list view icon on the right hand side of the bar and you will get a list of places you looking for

  Save your favorite places:  Save home and work addresses to get directions faster when you’re on the go! For saving home or work locations go to Google maps settings and then touch on “Edit home or work”. The next time you use maps, you can directly type “home” or “work” and maps will automatically pick up the address.

   Transit layer on maps
    Select the bus icon on the top of directions To and From places.
    If you wish to explore the transit lines available in the city you   can just click on the "Public Transit" on the left panel of your GMM.
      Types of transit
 click on "Options" below the To and From places and select your preferences.
  Transit lines
  By default, all transit lines are shown for a particular area. Zoom in to see the stops for a certain line.  select the Public transit layer and then click on any particular station and swipe up to see the buses / metro available from that station.
  Station pages
  Clicking on a stop or station (indicated by a blue square) will also bring up the station page. This page provides information on which lines stop at that station and when the next transportation will arrive. You can also get directions to that station, see or view nearby stations.
      Walking directions
  Google Maps not only lets you gets driving directions, you can also get walking or public transit directions.
 To get walking directions, enter your to and from destinations as usual. On of on top of “to and fro places” Google Maps, you will see the three options highlighted “Driving, Transit and Walking” in that order. This is where you can indicate that you're walking.
 Not all locations have all options, but the three choices for transportation in Google Maps are by car (the default), by public transit, or by walking. If you select public transit, Google gives you walking directions to and from the bus or train stops required to get to your destination.

      Click to call button directly from maps
  Search for a business, like a home delivery Dominos Pizza on Google Maps, and click the 'call' link next to its phone number. From a phone, it will directly connect you the pizza store.

       Share location / places with your friends
   Open the Google Maps app on your phone or tablet.

What is organic traffic and how to get it

In this brief note, I will let you all know that what is Organic traffic or natural traffic? It is nothing but all the way visitor comes to your blog or webpages via search engine’s keyword input and indexing the webpage or link as results only. 

The visitor may click on the link given at the search engine result and reach the targeted webpage, is called as organic traffic or real traffic.

If you would like to get organic or natural traffic then you have to work accordingly. Yeah, your published content shall match search engine algorithm to reach that level. It is neither tough nor easy, it is just about learning it and working as per search engine algorithm.

How to natural traffic?

Yeah, one shall make sure that publishing content shall not have any black hat SEO or white hat SEO tricks etc. to penalize yourself. So, try to draft the content accoridngly although Search Engine Optimization in a right way is not a bad one.

There are other ways of traffic which is not called as organic traffic but they might be called as referral traffic, artificial traffic and even social traffic which is not given weightage for the web status or page rank. 

If you are interested to get an organic traffic to your blog or webpage then you have to work as per search engine algorithm (though no search engine reveals their algorithm or parameters). 

It also means your quality written post on certain niche must match search engines various parameters including crawling to your web content, storing your web content in their database and index them upon visitors’ search matches. They are not the only parameters but it has a long list for it.

Some expert says that, other mode of traffic can also be called as inorganic traffic, it means in case if you reach a page via external link (without 'no rel follow tag') then still it won’t be considered as organic traffic. 

So, try to learn what is organic traffic and what is inorganic or unnatural traffic to differentiate and make sure to draft the new and quality post accordingly.

Tips: You can write the article as per domain matching URL and content accordingly.
