WordPress Hosting Information For Beginners

wordpress hosting solutions

If you want to get WordPress hosting for your website, this article is here to help. You have to make sure you find an excellent hosting service for your website if you want your website to do well. Here is how to find a company that offers WordPress as one of their hosting options.

Managed WP or regular host

You’re going to want to know whether you can use WordPress with a hosting service or not. It means you’re going to want to look on their website to see if they mention that they have the ability to host this kind of website. If you can’t find any information on their website about it, then you should contact them to ask if their hosting services include the ability to install and use WordPress. If the company doesn’t give you a definite answer, move on and work with a company that will tell you straight up whether they can host your site correctly or not.

Reputation matters

You need to find out whether they are worth your time to work with or not. You need to find out what people have been saying in recent days regarding the work they have done with the hosting service. If the reviews you find show that the company does good work, then it’s clear that they are good to work with. However, if all you find are negative reviews, then you know not to waste your time with them.

Pricing is critical

Figure out what you’re going to have to pay to host your website. You want to make sure that it’s not that expensive because there are plenty of great hosts that will host your website for a few dollars each month. Know that if you sign up for a hosting service for more than a few months at a time, you generally get a more significant discount. You may also be able to find coupon codes that you can use when getting a service’s assistance so look into that and see if you can save more money on the price of their hosting services.

Many hosting companies will have WordPress built into the dashboard that you use to control what goes onto your website. You’re going to want to ask them whether you can install WordPress from the dashboard or if you have to do the work yourself. If you have to do it on your own, that’s okay because it’s not that difficult to do if you follow the instructions you can find online. Just search for WordPress installation guide, and you should be presented with results that show you what to do.

WordPress hosting is now something you know a little more about. You want to find a place that is going to host your site for a reasonable price, and that has the features you need. There are plenty of great hosts out there so take your time and look for them.

Huawei Mate 20 Pro: same ultrasonic fingerprint sensor under the screen as Galaxy S10

The Huawei Mate 20 Pro would be equipped with the same ultrasonic fingerprint sensor like the Samsung Galaxy S10. Anxious to burn the priority to its eternal rival, the Chinese outsider signed an exclusive contract with Qualcomm, which designs the fingerprint scanner.

According to our Korean colleagues from ETNews and Biometric Update, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro would be the very first smartphone equipped with an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor. More potent than the optical sensor of the Vivo Nex or Vivo X20 Plus UD, this sensor allows a much more precise scan of your fingerprints and works even if your fingers are wet or a little dirty.

High tech specs

The Huawei Mate 20 Pro and Galaxy S10 will be equipped with the same fingerprint sensor under the screen!

The latest news is that the Galaxy S10 relied heavily on the addition of this new technology, developed primarily by Qualcomm, to showcase itself. Samsung’s CEO praised the fingerprint sensor over the technology used by Vivo or its Chinese competitors. As a reminder, optical sensors are mostly designed by the Chinese firm Gudix, PhoneArena specifies.

Huawei has signed an exclusive contract with Qualcomm until February 2019 to gain a foothold over Samsung. This strategic deal will enable the Chinese manufacturer, which aims to become the world market leader as of next year, to beat its competitor in the pillory.

In addition to this print sensor under the screen, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro would be equipped with a triple rear photosensor, a Kirin 980 SoC and a large AMOLED borderless screen. The Mate 20 Pro would be presented around next November.

Until then, you can watch the following video which is a first presentation and introduction of the new Huawei Mate 20 Pro:

Google maps replace its planisphere with a terrestrial globe.

google earth

Last week, Google updated the desktop version of its online mapping service by replacing the planisphere system with a globe.

With all due respect to flat earth supporters, such as Kyrie Irving from the Boston Celtics, last weekend’s Google maps update gave a much more spherical shape to its virtual planet Earth by offering a world’s planisphere matching the famous Mercator’s projection.

If this modification does not seem to bring any modification within the framework of the traditional use of Google Maps, it is by zooming out that the magic of the cartography service works by proposing not anymore a flat world map, but well a terrestrial globe in 3D.

A desire to represent the earth more realistically.

If Google chose to abandon the planisphere, it is because the giant of Mountain View wishes to propose a vision of the earth much more realistic than the planisphere of the world allows according to the Mercator projection.

Imposed as the standard planisphere in the world thanks to the precision it could bring during sea voyages, Mercator’s projection has the main flaw of enormously distorting the areas that are furthest from the equator, by presenting Europe, for example, as more extensive on earth than South America, when in reality it is almost twice as large as Europe.

To overcome this problem, Google has opted for a representation of the earth in the form of a globe, which provides a representation of the world much more realistic than a planisphere allows.

Google Maps conquering space

However, the introduction of the globe is not the only novelty that the Mountain View giant has brought to its mapping service. By activating the satellite mode, it is now possible to travel in space.

With this update, Google has doubled its efforts by giving its users the possibility to observe live which surface of the earth and planets are illuminated by the sun, the effects of lighting on the earth from space or the possibility to visit other planets or natural satellites.

First iPhone X Plus and iPhone 9 photos unveiled

Today is a big day as it seems that the first pictures of iPhone X Plus and iPhone 9 have just been leaked. We’re letting you know right away as we know there are quite a few fan boys in our audience 😉

We already had a small idea of the look of the iPhone model 2018, especially with some of the few realistic designs of the iPhone X leaked, but a few hours ago, things have been confirmed, through the leak of several photos concerning the brand’s very high-end new iPhone X Plus phone.

This phone will benefit from a 6.5-inch OLED screen, as well as the iPhone 9, which will be the entry level model. This smartphone should integrate this time a 6.1-inch LCD panel. The two phones appeared on Twitter, via the account of the leaker Ben Geskin, which revealed some photos, explaining nevertheless that they were dummy models, intended for the manufacturers of hulls or accessories, so that they can take advantage on the manufacture of their products.

Dummy models were leaked, but which allow knowing a little more about the design of the two new iPhone, and in particular to confirm the presence of a double photo sensor on the iPhone X Plus.

However, we do not know if these new Apple products will be able to charge each other. Up to now, we had mostly been given computer-generated images, but it has to be said that if this new leak proves to be true, the rumours previously revealed were finally quite close to the truth. To have an official confirmation, and hope for answers to all our questions, we will probably have to wait for the keynote of September 2018.

As usual, let’s wait and SEE people !

What are your main expectations regarding this new flagship model?

The Galaxy Watch, a Samsung connected watch?

samsung Galaxy Watch

Is this a complete change of direction for Samsung in the connected watch market? The South Korean company already has a range called Gear, but one cannot say that it is a great success. More and more indications tend to prove that the company would take a new course with a range of Galaxy Watch.

Farewell Gear?

According to the SamMobile portal, Samsung is about to make a significant strategic change. To support this statement, the site relies on a “Samsung Galaxy Watch” logo. A generally well-informed Twitter user goes even further and claims that Samsung would give up his home operating system Tizen in the process. Instead, it would return to WearOS, the system developed by Google, a complete change of direction. According to some rumors, Samsung would also integrate his vocal assistant Bixby.

Reviving a dying market

As for Samsung, no confirmation for the moment and it will probably be necessary to wait at least the end of August to know more about it. A period generally is chosen by Samsung to unveil its new watch models connected during the IFA.

Information which in any case should globally confirm that there is no big revolution to predict. Samsung is probably looking to combine its different products under the Galaxy banner. A label that should be a little more meaningful and more attractive to customers than Gear.

Something to take Samsung out of the niche market and finally compete with Apple, the primary player in the market? If the Swiss giants, specialists in watchmaking, are unable to do so, the task still looks complicated. We’ll have to wait a bit to find out…

Browser: Chrome, Edge, Firefox… Is there a better browser?

browser_wars

We often hear fans of a browser defend it, arguing that it is better than the competition, whether it be Chrome, Edge or Firefox. The question we are therefore entitled to ask ourselves is: which is the best web browser between these three alternatives? Chrome, Firefox or Edge?

Like many, you used a web browser for a while before getting angry at it. Then you tried the competitors and finally choose another one. So finally, which is the best web browser to surf the web serenely and efficiently?

What is the best web browser between Chrome, Firefox, and Edge?

The easiest way to get a more or less precise idea is to submit them to a series of different benchmarks and rank them according to the results.

which browser do your preferHere are 5 benchmarks we selected to see which browser is better:

• HTML5Test, to check efficiency with HTML5 language
• JetStream, to check JavaScript support
• Kraken, also for a little test on the issue of JavaScript
• MotionMark, which studies graphics performance
• Speedometer to get an idea of the overall performance

What came out of these different benchmark tests?

• HTML5Test: Chrome is first before Firefox, then Edge
• Jetstream: Edge ahead of Firefox and Chrome in the third position
• Kraken: Firefox passes Edge and Chrome on the third step
• MotionMark: Edge takes a considerable lead over Firefox and Chrome which show equivalent results
• Speedometer: Chrome crushes by far Firefox and Edge

Note: it is essential to specify with which configuration this series of Benchmarks was carried out because apparently with another model the results could evolve in one direction or another… It is also important to specify which version of the browser was used in each case.

The configuration:

The five benchmarks were run on an Intel Core-i5 laptop, supported by 256GB SSD and 8GB RAM, all under Windows 10 (64-bit).

In conclusion, as you will have noticed all alone, there is not a big winner concerning the Internet navigation and the three browsers are globally equal. We can slightly give an advance to Chrome this time, but remember that in 2015, the same test gave Edge the winner. The tests depend mainly on the optimizations that each publisher performs in its new versions before the competition aligns itself…

And you, which browser do you use every day and why?

Magic Leap One: AR glasses coming this summer

augmented reality in action

Last December, Magic Leap lifted the veil on his augmented reality glasses, which had been making a lot of headlines for several years without us knowing exactly whether it was another standard AR product or a technological revolution. After another few long months of silence, the Florida-based company, which managed to raise 2.2 billion dollars (2 billion euros) for this project, finally announced something concrete for the launch of its Magic Leap One glasses. This will be released this summer in the US.

No precise date for the moment, but we do know that the product will be distributed exclusively by the AT&T operator with whom an agreement has just been sealed. As far as price is concerned, Magic Leap has not given up anything more than his initial indication that glasses should cost at least as much as a high-end smartphone. Based on the prices of an iPhone X or a Samsung Galaxy S9+, the Magic Leap One could be worth between 1,000 and 1,500 dollars, at least.

In a long video presentation broadcast via the Twitch platform (which can be viewed on YouTube), developers in charge of the project delivered some technical elements on the hardware and software configuration of their AR glasses. We learn that it uses a SoC (system on a chip) Tegra X2 from NVidia that incorporates two 64-bit ARM processors. The operating system is a hybrid creation that includes 64-bit Linux as well as loans “to other systems” that are not mentioned. On the other hand, we still do not know what is the autonomy of Magic Leap One nor how it manages the execution of applications (locally or via Internet ?).

What about the actual AR field of view ?

The presentation was punctuated by extracts demonstrating how the helmet works. We discover a game featuring a golem that the user “installs” into the real setting with finger pinching gestures. Visual cues let you know where you can insert virtual objects. The character integrates into the environment in a credible way, sometimes on the ground, on a sofa or the work surface of a kitchen.

Note that the headset not only detects hand movements, but also the user’s movements. When the golem throws a rock in its direction, it can avoid it by taking a side step or block it with its hand. It will be up to video game and application developers to make the most of these capabilities. The demonstration is quite convincing, but let us remember that it has been pre-recorded and that we do not know if it has been embellished or not. We remember that Magic Leap admitted having used special effects for some of his previous demonstrations.

One of the remaining questions concerns the real field of vision provided by the Magic Leap One, which will necessarily be restricted to a frame. The same question had arisen with the demonstrations of HoloLens glasses from Microsoft which suggested a total immersion whereas the vision in real conditions was more limited. As for the Magic Leap One, we should know more about it and how it works as soon as it is on the market.

 

The blockchain revolution : how does it work ?

blockchain tech

The blockchain is often associated with Bitcoin, the virtual currency created in 2008. It is a sort of decentralized account book controlled collectively, on the peer-to-peer principle, from a distributed database. It is the blockchain that ensures the security of transactions by sharing trust. A system reputed to be transparent and tamper-proof, the scope of which goes far beyond currency alone.

What is the blockchain and why are we talking about a revolution about it ? Behind this system for securing Bitcoin transactions lies a concept that bases its reliability on transparency and mutual trust. Some think that the blockchain is led to play a central role in our existence by replacing trusted centralized third parties such as banks, notaries, insurance companies and more.

The blockchain was born with Bitcoin

The blockchain was born at the same time as the cryptographic currency called Bitcoin and appeared in 2008. Bitcoin is used to purchase goods and services ; it can also be exchanged for other currencies. Unlike traditional currencies, Bitcoin is not administered by a single banking authority, it operates in a decentralised fashion through a set of nodes. These form the network through which all transactions are made. A secure public register keeps the history of all these operations. It is considered forgery-proof since it is based on the principle of shared trust.

« Mining » form the nodes to the blockchain

Each transaction is encrypted and stored in a block, which may contain several separate transactions. A block contains a numerical marking from the previous block that attests to its validity. This marking operation is carried out by voluntary users, who are called “miners”. The latter make their time and the computing power of their machines available to administer the blockchain. The miners form the nodes, or rather the links of the blockchain.

This operation called “mining” allows these people to be paid, in Bitcoin of course. The Bitcoin value is maintained by software that adapts the intensity of the calculations to the number of active miners. The more bitcoin miners there are, the more complex the calculations are and the safer the blockchain is.

The future of the blockchain beyond Bitcoin

The blockchain has many advantages. First of all, it reduces bank transaction costs and even eliminates banks as trusted third parties. In addition to digital payments, this technology can be used to transfer other assets, such as securities, bonds, shares, voting rights…

Furthermore, the transparency of the system and its decentralised architecture give it a potential for applications that go beyond the financial sphere. The blockchain being a register, it can be used to establish a traceability on all kinds of products and services. It can also be used to ensure the application of intelligent contracts, programs that automatically execute the terms of a contract.

 

How OBD Scanners Work in Cars

obd scan tool

If you own a car made from 1996 going forward up until today, you might have noticed that the vehicle has some standardized computer systems. The computer systems are responsible for monitoring emissions and electrical sensors within your car as you drive. This has been a major innovation in the automobile industry over the last 2 decades!

However, after recording the information, you will require an On-Board Diagnostics popularly known as OBD tool to retrieve it. OBD scanners can detect problems in your car before you even notice so they can be essential. In this article, we focus on how these OBD scanners work and how they are essential for your vehicle.

How the Scanners Work

If your car is not working correctly, usually there would be a dashboard warning or the Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) will illuminate to indicate that something is not right. However, these signals only tell you that something is wrong but do not say what exactly is wrong with your car. That is where the OBD scanners come into use.
By plugging the scanner into your car and reporting a code, the device will give you detailed information on what is wrong. Given that today’s cars are far more involved in both electrical and mechanical systems, it can be hard to detect a problem in your car without an OBD scanner.

What are the different types of OBD Scanners?

diagnosing car issuesTwo types of OBD scanners are available, the “code reader” and the “Scan tool” scanners. The code reader scanners can read and clear necessary codes in your car while the scan tool scanners can perform functions that are more advanced.

It is advisable you have the scan tool OBD scanner because with it you can view both real-time and recorded data. What is more is that the advanced scanners can provide advanced troubleshooting information. Even though most people use ODB scanners to test for emissions, the devices have more uses that include measuring different aspects of your car’s performance.

Using a vehicle scanner

The ability of these devices’ ability to provide accurate information, however, depends on how well you use them. For instance, once you get a code, you must define it correctly. If not careful, you might mistake a P0303 code for a P0455 with the first code meaning that you have a misfiring cylinder while the second one means that you may not have screwed the gas cap correctly.

Why Having a car engine scanner is Important

Regardless of how you want to use your scanner, it is essential that you have one in your car. As aforementioned, the scanner can be very critical in testing your car’s performance and possible troubleshooting problems. Moreover, the scanners are very active and suitable bearing in mind that the cars manufactured in this era are far more complicated.

Conclusion

For cars manufactured from the year 1996 going forward, they computerized systems that have made it possible for the use of OBD scanners. The scanners help to measure the car’s performance, troubleshoot problems and provide you with detailed results. However, you should be very careful while defining the codes while using the scanners or you will end up getting the wrong information. An OBD scanner is one that you should have in your car at all times because you can never tell when disaster will strike.
