Replace Nokia X2-01 LED Screen

Three years back when LED Screen of my Nokia X2-01 got damaged without showing any prior symptoms, i knew that the bill is going to be heavy. So, out of fear i kept that aside and used a Nokia 3110c (which i Previously have)instead. One day it happened that a friend of mine visited me after a long time. He enquire about my X2-01, i related him the whole story. Then he showed me his phone and it was same Nokia X2-01 model, after that he asked me to have a look at the LED screen of it. As i did i found nothing unusual and asked him what he was trying to show me? then he said that he replaced the screen all by himself and LED cost under INR 250. Now to be honest i didn't know any online store to sell LED screen in such cheap rate.
 But People of Kolkata must know about this place called Chandni Chawk market which is famous for selling all kind of electrical and electronics items.


 In one word it is mecca for any Electronics Geek or Hobbyist or even engineer.
There i found LED screen in such a cheap rate, but i didn't know about its manufacturer.

Now this Video will teach you how you can replace Led screen Nokia X2-01 by yourself


You can search google for these terms Nokia x2-01 lcd screen price for buying LED screen online.

Starting March 23, 2015, users won't be able to publicly share images and video that are sexually explicit or show graphic nudity on Google's Blogger.

Google is cracking the whip on blogs with Adult contents, Starting March 23, 2015, you won't be able to publicly share images and videos that are sexually explicit or show graphic nudity on Blogger.

According to Search Giant "If your existing blog does have sexually explicit or graphic nude images or video, your blog will be made private after March 23, 2015. No content will be deleted, but private content can only be seen by the owner or admins of the blog and the people who the owner has shared the blog with."

 The new policy also states "If you’d rather take your blog down altogether, you can export your blog as a .xml file or archive your blog's text and images using Google Takeout."
 A Google spokesperson said, “We’ve updated our policy to fall in line with our policies across Google’s hosted products (including products like YouTube or Google+). So starting March 23, 2015, you won’t be able to publicly share images and video that are sexually explicit or show graphic nudity on Blogger.

The exceptions to this policy caution users from using "Blogger as a way to make money on adult content. For example, don't create blogs that contain ads for or links to commercial porn sites." "We’ll still allow nudity if the content offers a substantial public benefit. For example, in artistic, educational, documentary, or scientific contexts."

Stop A Program From Getting Updates In Windows

stop a program from updating



Well, if you are a owner of a slow speed mobile broadband like me, then you must hate the word "UPDATE" as i do. Whenever you update some program a lot of data is consumed along with speed and time. But for others i could recommend update things regularly, because with new update previous bugs are fixed along with new added features (sometimes). There is another reason not to update. Software used illegally without buying can be blocked when updated. But who cares! if you use below technique then there is no chance of a program getting updates also with this you will be able to block any program from connecting to internet.


Steps to stop a program from updating


 1   
There are two ways to to do this, one with Windows firewall and Antivirus firewall.
I will start with windows firewall. now, it may happen that when you have installed an antivirus it take hold of the windows firewall and you have only one option left that is to configure  firewall section of your Antivirus. for this see "Using Antivirus Firewall" after step8



 2  
Open Control panel, then System and Security
control panel stop a program from updating
 3    
    Click to enter  Windows Firewall

stop a program from updating


 4    
     Click on the Advance Settings as indicated the picture
advance setting Stop a program from updating

 5    
This is the Windows Firewall Menu, few things needed to be clear i.e what is Inbound/outbound rule?
can you see those in left hand side.

Inbound Rules: These are to do with other things accessing your computer. If you are running a Web Server on your computer then you will have to tell the Firewall that outsiders are allowed to connect to it.

Outbound Rules: With these you can set which programs use the Internet, and Block others. You will want to let your Web Browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Opera...) have access to the Internet, so you will tell Windows Firewall that it's allowed.

now click on Outbound Rule on left
Firewall menu stop a program from updating

 6    
   As you can see, you need to add new program to this list click New Rule on right
firewall outbound stop a program from updating

 7    
    Now just select the program and click Next>

 8   
    Now browse to the program(.exe) that you want to stop Updates/ Connect to Internet

After buying a android phone the first thing i did is download  tons of apps and games just to fiddle with it a little longer. But when phone memory gets cramped up, i needed to uninstall few apps to get some free space. Now after certain days when i needed those particular app do i need to download it again? the answer is Yes.

Because when you are installing a app/game on your android phone/tablet it is downloaded to your phone memory, inside /data Folder, and as it is protected  you can't  copy/ write/ delete/ move  it.
So i suggest you pal to do what i do. i.e download apps to your computer/laptop from play store and then transfer them to your device, that's it! your done.

Steps To Download Android app(.apk) in Computer/Desktop From Play Store

   Download APK Downloader extension for Chrome
   Download APK Downloader add-on for Firefox
 2    
Now login with the gmail address that you have linked to your play store account from your device.

 .apk Downloader from google play store

Android Device ID is a 16 digit number you can find it by dialing *#*#8255#*#*  in your device.
If all goes correct you will see a black screen,  where Device ID and other different information about the phone is given.

In case it didn't works try this method:-
 you can download /install Device ID App which will show the device id with email address linked to play store.

 3   
It is  the last step which is necessary to accomplish our purpose, for this
Goto Settings> Security>Unknown sources(enable it)
allow installation from other sources


 4   
Result- See the "Download APK" option coming.


See download option is appearing beside install when



 5   
Use your USB Cable (you can use bluetooth too) for transferring the downloaded .apk file to your device. When the transferring is  finished, Repeat step 3 only to Disable it. Now enjoy and don't fear to Uninstall apps.

How to Make Stylus At Home

©2013- TechnicalWisdom.in

0

This stylus work with any Capacitive touch screen device, i.e ipad, iphone, any android smart phone or tablet, or windows mobiles


First thing that i thought after buying an android phone was that, its keypad is so congested that writing only with finger always create typos. and to buy a good stylus could cost around 600 INR or more. Then i thought of creating a stylus at home. For that, i researched a lot in Google and finally made my own stylus. 

You Can  ALSO See Construct A Microphone  For Free

But before i start describing, first it is necessary to understand how it works? the first thing which is necessary is contact between your hand and the tip that is touching the screen, else it will not work. Now for that either you can use a metallic refill(as i have done here) or you can wrap the pen/refill with aluminium foil. Be careful to watch that tip is touching the foil. Now to complete the process, dip the tip into water, squeeze little to let the excess water out, so that it remain moist.

P.S - It is not for serious kind of work, just casual typing & touch.

STEPS


Here i took my old Parker pen, there is no ink in its refill. The objective of choosing this pen is that its refill has a metallic body, Do not worry if you don't have such pen then you can just arrange for a aluminium foil, to wrap around the plastic body of your pen/refill 
A Pen


I have uploaded this picture to show the metallic body of the refill.
Bring the refill out of that pen


Now remove bottom part or the tip, where you want it to touch the screen. I have selected the bottom part.
remove the tip and bottom of that refill


Now use cotton swabs or cotton ball to make the tip, i used cotton swabs, how much you needed it depends upon your aperture of the tip. at bottom part the aperture is sightly bigger than the top.
for that i needed one and a half swab.
use cotton swabs or cotton balls



 Insert the swabs/ cotton ball carefully, you can use tissue paper too!
insert swabs in the refill
 

    Now you need water to make the swab wet, so that it can become conductive and complete the            circuit when it touches the screen
little water is needed


dip the tip of cotton in water


TESTING



I added a few pictures of me testing the stylus on Spice Mi-361, and needless to say that it passed successfully.
But don't compare it with original costly stylus. It might some time miss few touches it may be due missing moisture in the cotton tip or your grip is wrong. Remember one thing in mind that it cost nothing to you, not a penny. Share and let other people know about it.

testing responsive web page





Hope you had read previous two parts of "Free Important Tools That Every Webmaster Must Know". Part one was about Cross Browser Testing, and Part two was about Checking speed and Performance of a Webpage.
Now in part three, it is time to check Responsiveness of your website. if you are a webmaster, you know how responsiveness is essential in terms of your website's look in mobile, tablet and desktop of different screen sizes. well the easiest way is to resize your browser window, but then all browser/devices might not accept all your @media query
Out of my little knowledge i will share two methods with you,  if you have other methods you can share via comment.

1. If you are chrome user, great news for you! Google Chrome has a  inbuilt way of checking responsiveness of a web page.

Just press F12  or  Ctrl + Shift + I via keyboard( for Mac press  Cmd + Opt + I ), by this you will enter Developer Tools
or just go to Chrome menu  Chrome Menu  at the top-right of your browser window, then ToolsDeveloper Tools.



testing responsive web page

Now click Select Model at top left corner. There you will get a list of devices and notebooks in a alphabetical order


testing responsive web page

selecting any of the devices, browser will render the webpage for that device's display. Just for example i have used one of my previous post.

2. Another is way is to go to this site: quirktools.com/screenfly/, just go and see. There is nothing to tell you about it, it is very easy to use. There you will get a lot of options like Desktop, notebook, tablets mobile, and other devices(Television etc) with large screen display.
