Hi everyone, how are you all doing today?  I hope all is well with you all. Today I decided to write a blog about how to make a blog on twitter. I chose this topic because there are many people who want to or are asked to run a blog but have no idea about it. Below, you can also see a youtube video about that. 

Making a blog on blogger is a piece of cake. All you need to do is having a gmail account. Note: no other email account can be used on blogger to make a blog. Just go to blogger.com and log in with your gmail ID. Choose a blogger profile, it could be a limited blogger profile or Google+ profile. After that, tap on create blog and type in the basic. 

Look at this video 🙂 it will help you out. 

I also have another blog, it’s called Planetmaniha.blogspot.com, be sure to check that out. 

Games with Google Home

Games with google home:
Hey everyone, I am back with another blog. Since last year, I have been playing games with Google Home and testing what it can do. So, I played more games with it today. I have posted a youtube video of it as well down below. 

Google Home is just an assistant for android just like Siri or cortana. It’s really good. It can quiz you on things as well such as general knowledge quiz, lucky trivia, spelling bee quiz (I always lose at it), there is also something called sound safari. Justs say ‘Ok Google’ to active this. Say ‘Ok Google, play the spelling bee game’. It’s quite fun to do that. For the spelling bee, choose the hard level in it. Note: You can also do that with the google assistant in your phone. 

Watch this video down below of me playing games with google: 🙂

Hi everyone, how are you guys doing today? In today’s blog I am going to tell you something about pokemon go.

Everyone loves Pikachu the most right so pokemon has brought its special limited holiday treat for players around the world. The pokemon go birthday event marks two years of augmented reality adventure game and offers a birthday pikachy to celebrate. In the above picture, you can see what the pokemon looks like. I caught the pikachu and it was so awesome to catch it.

There are increased Pikachu and Pichu spawn. Each will be a new ‘Birthday’ form for the summer, wearing a straw hat and sunglasses, including a rare Shiny version. New Pikachu Fan Avatar items on sale, including a T-Shirt and Pikachu ears, some of which will require a gold Pikachu Fan medal to purchase.

So, like I know the game has lost its hype but do try it if you want to catch this pikachu. 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hola guys! How have you been? It’s been long since I blogged about something, so crazy. Ramadan Mubarak as well. Today the blog is related to Google Home.

Google has said that the google home now can issue 3 queries at once using more natural ways of speaking. You can do this on your Google Home, Google Home mini and Google Home max. This feature is only currently available at UK, America and Australia. This feature is a basically a multitasking feature. It could handle 2 tasks but now it’s going upto 3 which is going to save a lot of time for people. To use this feature you simple have to say “and” in between the commands. 😀

Experience with HTC Vive

Hi, everyone, long time no see? How is it going? Today I am here to blog about the HTC Vive that came out some time ago but I never blogged about it. I actually tried it a couple of times and it’s extremely fun. 

The HTC Vive headset is really comfortable to wear and it features soft, memory foam-esque material around the edges to avoid any irritation on the skin. It can also be easily switched. It’s black in color and it looks good. It also provides users with 2 handheld controllers. They are different than the Xbox controllers and are designed to be versatile and used in the number of ways in the virtual world. It also has a touch enabled circular panel and a couple of physical buttons with the built in sensors allowing the controllers to be tracked in the virtual world. It’s wired and not wireless which is a down set of this. There is a camera on the headset that can be switched on and off.  

Now this is some information about it.

Experience with gaming:

I have recently went to gaming and I played with this HTC vive. We can select different games and it will indeed give you a good and great experience.  For example, there was a game, it was called ‘Plank’ I think and for those who have acrophobia, it can be a tough time for that. So a guy set up that game for me and a wooden board under my feet and he said me to climb on it. Now in the game, I saw that it was at a great height. So I climbed on the plank, afraid to fall down, but the basic purpose of that game is that you have to jump of it. Then the man said me “jump.” I was stuck and scared even though it was a game but I saw myself at a great height and jumping down would be like suicide because I saw buildings below me and cars. I said ‘I can’t do this’, then he said “You have to jump’. It took me 2 minutes, then I jumped down the plank and basically killed myself in the game. Then there was plank 2, I had to get on the plank and catch birds, there was fire below me and I was scared but I played it. I played candy crush, I even killed zombies, killed cockroaches and went on a roller coaster. It was really fun though. I often go to play that since I don’t own it. I recommend you guys to atleast try this if you are into gaming. 😀

But don’t play it if you have health issues or get headaches very quickly.

Apple airpods

Hi everyone, I am back! I hope you all are doing great today. I made a review on the apple AirPods so I am going to be telling you about them. AirPods are driven by the custom designed apple chip Apple W1 chip. they are wireless headphones and easy to use. It has a great battery life and you can use them for 5 hours on a single charge. There is a voice accelerator which recognizes your voice when you are speaking and works with a beam-forming microphones which filter out all the external noises. It also knows when you are talking because the optical sensors and the accelerometers work with the w1 chip to control the audio and engage the microphone which gives  the ability to use both AirPods.  You don’t have to connect it, it connects automatically for you to any apple device you are using. So apple fans, go ahead and buy them. 😀

iPhone X

Hey, everyone!! The hype about the news iPhone is way too much. Apple just released iPhone 8 and iPhone X(also known as iPhone 10).’ It’s like the apple C.E.O was just waiting to release everything together to create the hype. Well, where did iPhone 9 go? Oh probably it’s gone because 7 ate 9. Get it? Ellen Degenerous made that joke to. Anyhow, as an Android fan, I am not much hyped about the iPhone. I am not gonna be blogging about the iPhone 8, because it doesn’t seem interesting but I’ll blog about the iPhone X.

What to expect in the iPhone X?

.It has a bazel-less OLED screen about 5.8 inch. It also feels lighter. It has a new glass design that enables wireless charging. It has a bigger display but smaller than plus phones. It’s also water resistant and comes in only 2 colors. 

.Apple’s ‘Super Retina Display’ makes its debut. It has a Quad HD+ display with a 2436 x 1125 resolution. 

.Apple’s AirPower Pad can charge up to multiple devices. It also charges with existing Qi chargers. 

.There is no more home button in iPhone X. Flick an open app upward to return to the home screen. Control center is now a swipe-down-from-the-top gesture. 

.It does not have a fingerprint sensor anymore. Instead there is a face recolonization now. Unlock your phone by simply looking at it. 

.It has a redesigned 12MP dual-lens-camera. Portrait mode enhanced by portrait lighting. Portrait mode can also be used in selfie mode with this. 

.Siri has been over to the power button, which has been enlarged to make it easier to press.

.Animoji is the only thing I really found attractive in the iPhone X.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is a new Animoji feature in iOS 11, which are animated versions of the popular emoji found on the iPhone. It will use the Face ID hardware face-scanning features to mimic you.

Also, the iPhone X is going to cost $999 which is an extremely high price right now.
The iPhone X is yet to be released somewhere in November. Good luck buying it :p

Yo everyone!! What’s up? I hope you all are fine. Today I decided to blog about this thing called “System Ui Tuner” which is an option which comes in Android. It is neat hidden menu on Android Marshmallow and Android Nougat. It gives you a bit of control over your status bar and its  pull-down menus. 

Once it is enabled, you can change the way your status  bar and pull-down settings look and feel which gives your android a more custom feel that would have required some rooting and flashing previous. 

How to enable System UI tuner?

1. Put down your quick settings, swipe down on the notifications. On the top right you’ll see the gear icon. Tapping it is a shortcut for settings but tapping it for a few seconds will open a hidden menu in settings. 

2. Long press your gear until it spins, then keep holding it until you get a popup message that says “Congrats! System Ui Tuner has been added to settings.” 

However this could be a bit risky for the future, but if you are ok  with that, go ahead and tap “Got it.” The only reason I tried this is to manage my notification settings for applications. For example, if you are using “whatsapp” and you don’t want it’s notifications every time on the scream when you are using it, then this System Ui Tuner has around 5 levels for your notification settings for every option. Scroll down to your settings, click other and switch it. That’s all folks. keep smiling!. 😀
