With the help of modern digital cameras, one can easily click pictures and store quality images. One can also discard the images which are not so good or helpful to have some good memories. To take pictures is easy, but to have good images is not that easy. Many times, wrong timings, as well as poor background, can spoil the effect of the images and hence many times one needs to also edit the photographs.

Photo Editing

In many cases, the images need to be retouched to remove some points that can spoil the overall look of the image. At such point, one needs to hire a professional editor who has the skill to retouch the image with his professional skills and experience.

Xiaomi is one Chinese brand that is loved by everyone in India because of its affordable pricing and amazing features. Though like all Chinese Brands, they copy iPhone, yet Xiaomi has made niceand quality gadgets. Lightweight, powerful, and beautiful are the qualities what Xiaomi devices are known for. Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro comes in two variants 16GB/2GB Ram and 32 GB /3GB RAMwhereas other specifications remain the same for both of the devices. It comes with a light, yet heavy and powerful battery of 4000mAH. What else they have to offer, let’s dig deeper!

Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro – Juicy and Fruity Battery

Design and Display

Redmi Note 3 Prohas a full metal body and is very classy.Build quality of Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro is very good and feels premium in the hand. Upfront you get 5.5 full HD display with a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels with pixel density of 401ppi. Pixel quality is great and colours appear very natural. Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro comes with IPS LCD display and weighs around 164 grams. It will be available in 3 brilliant colours Gold, Silver and White. For all the people who are not good at handling smartphones, this device is protected with a scratch resistant glass.

Talking about the physical appearance, on the front side, there is a camera above the screen with no LED flash. Below the screen, lie the three capacitive keys with back key on the right. 3.5mm headphone jack is present at the upper side of the phone. Next to it lies and Infrared (IR)blaster which is an interesting feature of this device. On the left side lies the dual SIM tray, there is no SD card slot in this phone; hence, the 16/32GB memory is not expandable. There are power key and volume buttons on the right side.

The back cover of the phone is non-removable and so is the battery. There is anultra-fast fast fingerprint sensor at the back just below the 16MP camera and dual LED of the device. All lie vertically in the top centre.

Performance :

Like all other Xiaomi phones, this phone also rocks in performance. Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro is powered by 1.4GHz hexacore Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 processor. It launches the app in split seconds. There are two variants of the device, one has 2GB RAM and 16 GB internal memory and second has 3 GB RAM and 32 GB memory.For powerful gaming experience, it uses Adreno 510 graphics processor. Performance wise, you won’t be disappointed by the device.


The software is the area where we are quite surprised by the device. Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro doesn’t run on latest Nougat(7.0) or even Marshmallow (6.0) but runs on Android Lollipop (5.0.1), which seems very old for this new device. There is also Xiaomi’s own UI MIUI7 on top for further improvements to the device.Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro has an additional feature of eye protection mode in this device which reduces the blue light of display and thus won’t strain your eyes due to continuous usage. It also has a night mode, which adjusts the brightness of the device. Both the features are very useful.


Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro sports 16 MP rear camera with CMOS Sensor. The camera is extremely fast, and you will never miss your favourite moments. For low light conditions, it has two-tone LED flash. There is HDR mode plus 12 preinstalled filters for beautiful photographs. You can also record full HD video with this device.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro comes in two variants of 2GB RAM /16 GB internal memory and 3GB RAM /32GB internal memory. Both the devices are unfortunately non-expandable.


The battery is one more area in addition to a performance where you don’t have to worry. Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro comes with a huge 4000mAH battery which easily lasts a day and a half. Surprisingly, the device weight is not affected by such big battery which is really impressive.


Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro is a dual SIM(4G + 3G) Phone with SIM tray located on the left side of the side. Itcomes with an IR blaster, which can act as remote for various devices like TV, AC, etc.


To be launched in next few months, Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro price in India is expected to be Rs10,990.

The verdict:

Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro is a phone with great build quality and impressive camera at this range; however, we are not satisfied with the software which is old Lollipop. We hope Xiaomi updates the device to the latest software Nougat. Rest, the battery is juicy and won’t disappoint you. It gives an amazing performance; the camera is nice, and fingerprint sensor is also very fast.

Most of the time gambling has been synonymous to cheating. Casinos are one of the best examples of it and prove to be a huge problem for players against the cheater as well as for the operators. The industry as a whole too gets a bad name and so lately technology is being used to make playing fairer for all.

We, in this era, are fortunate to have highly developed technology to help casino operators pinpoint fraudulent acts and catch the cheaters disguised as clientele.

For internet casinos cheating is controlled by installation of advanced casino software on all internet casino sites that also work with technologies such as playtech, flash, and content management systems to avoid cheating.

How Technology Can Prevent Casino Cheating

Casino houses use up-to-the-minute technology that starts working even before a cheater parks the car. Number plate of the vehicle is captured through security camera and recognized by including the use of software that turns numbers and letters into text.

The text generated number next identifies whether the person has earlier cheated and casino wishes him to keep out. The security services are notified and the person is denied entry.

Biometric facial recognition cameras are also deployed to ascertain only the genuine players are entering the gambling area. The cheater is caught immediately and is not allowed to enter the casino campus.

A bank of computer screens is regularly monitored by human eyes behind the scenes that beams live footage from different security cameras.

Invisible bar code is written on cards at gaming tablets and a sensor deal with those by comparing results with the cards on the tablet at the end of the game to prevent anyone switching cards for cheating purpose.

Software is also used to find out non-obvious relationship between the players and members of casino teams to help make the game fairer.

The gates of casinos are equipped with RFID (radio frequency id) chips to stop cheating in the campus. If the chips are not native to the house, correct frequency will not be emitted and therefore not be cashed in.

Apart from all these, there are few reports where cheaters have tried to bug the software program in online casinos. However, this is very difficult to do for average player. Today’s mobile casinos come with casino app which is another layer of security and is more difficult to crack.

Nokia is back again after about three years providing gap to Microsoft to lure the market. Under its new owner HMD, the new device is a ‘dumb’ phone equipped with the classic, popular “snake Xenzia” mobile game to excite fans and 31-day battery life.

Priced at just $26, two new Nokia-branded handsets were announced Tuesday by HMD Global and those are called “dumb phones” as to come without internet connectivity.

HMD is newly formed by ex-Nokia executives and the company has acquired the rights and intellectual property licenses from Nokia for a decade.

Under the deal the new company gets exclusive global brand licensing rights for the period and the Finnish firm to receive royalty payments for sales of every phone or tablet branded as Nokia.

Nokia Launches 2 Feature Phones Without Internet Connectivity

The two devices are dubbed as Nokia 150 and Nokia 150 Dual SIM. Both are feature phones and to offer FM radio, MP3 player and strong battery life to keep user talking for about 22 hours. The phones sport 2.4-inch screen and come with physical keypad.

If believed to HMD executive, the newly launched new Nokia phones are “built to last.” Both will come in white or black colours and to be rolled out in Asia-Pacific, India, Europe, Africa and Middle East in the first quarter of next year.

HMD is also learned to be coming up with two Android phones too early next year.

In 2014 Nokia’s Smartphone division was acquired by Microsoft and later announced 7,800 layoffs after failing to gain market as assumed.

Since then Nokia had been working on Network division, 5G internet, health care, virtual reality and other new areas of technology.

Nokia said the company would earn revenue without manufacturing phones in future.

Something really innovative and very useful has come in the package of the EMPI TENS unit. The EMPI TENS device is truly a great collection of facilities all together in one small handheld device and has many features and functions within the compact cell phone sized device.


For the handheld

The machine is small and compact in size, and it is ideal for both personal and clinical use. Most importantly, it is mobile and portable for the size and the battery operated model. It is operated by AA batteries. This means you can run the TENS unit, whether you have a power supply or not.

Meant for 3 purposes

The unit is meant for 3 purposes at once. You can get the neuromuscular electrical stimulation or NMES from it. You may also use the Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation or TENS from this, and may also use this as a high voltage device. All of the features are for pain relief and for facilitating better coordination of muscles. The main purpose of the device is in being multi functional unlike a single function TENS unit, which only gives electric pulses to the subcutaneous nerves.

For people with low levels of endorphins

The device is especially helpful for people who have low levels of endorphins. Endorphins are chemicals in the brain that tell the body to fight against pain, and let you relax by diminishing pain. If you have higher endorphin levels, you have better chances of fighting a pain. And low levels require you to take morphine like substances from external sources like pain killer drugs etc. However,you may get the same help when you let the NMES or TENS signals pass through the body. The EMPI TENS unit is for giving you both types of pulses in the body. The first one helps in fighting the muscular pains, while the next one helps in shutting down feelings of pain from the neural ends. This is a great combination treatment, and you may opt for a combo or just one singe pulse as per the body need. The low charge levels emitted by the device let the muscles contract at ease.

The program lock feature

Clinicianswould find the device to be especially helpful. This is because the custom settings you get there, you may choose any program setting, and set the levels there. Next, if you program a lock within, the settings will be permanent until you unlock. This is especially helpful when you are designing a program for the patients there. You may choose the electric signal type, and set the vibration and frequency level, and seta time gap, and then finally seta lock into it. And then once handed to the patient, he or she would be able to use the device at home without the headache of making all these settingsevery time. That is why the device is specially helpful for both clinic use and home use.

To get a better idea, you must go through reviews of the specific models that are chosen most by users around the world.

Apple’s newly released iPhone 7 is impressive. It has amazing specifications and is their newest flagship phone. As usual they have made some changes than just general improvements to specifications as there is a meant to be a generational leap from the iPhone 6S to iPhone 7.

iPhone 7

Positive changes made:

Improved camera

The shutter speed is now faster, there is improved colour reproduction and optical image stabilization. They’ve introduced an AI image signal processor which can detect objects and scenes within a photo and adjust the settings of the camera accordingly.

Increased battery size

The new iPhone 7 now has a 1955mAh battery. An improvement compared to the 1715mAh the iPhone 6S had. This supposedly adds an extra two hours of usage, all made possible with the extra space created from the controversially removed headphone jack.

IP67 water resistance

Apple’s iPhone 7 now sports IP67 water and dust resistance. Samsung Galaxy phones have had this water and dust protection rating since the Galaxy S5’s were introduced. So although it is nice Apple finally joined introduced it to its line of phones, it simply isn’t new or innovative – in fact the Samsung Galaxy S7 has a superior IP68 rating.

Higher storage for the basic model

The most basic version of the iPhone 7 now comes in the 32GB model. This is bit of catch up on Apple’s behalf as well as most Android phones come stock with 32GB as a minimum. Many Apple customers have been complaining for years that the 16GB is simply not enough to carry the iOS as well as a sufficient amount of apps and other media.

Negative changes made:

Loss of the headphone jack

Apple removed the headphone jack from its iPhone 7, making space for increased battery as well as Apple’s Taptic Engine. This means that iPhone users will now have to fork out good money for a new set of Bluetooth Earpods or perhaps a third party lightning cabled set of earphones.

The 3.5mm headphone jack has been around for many years. Although Bluetooth improved in both efficiency and effectiveness, we haven’t seen widespread use in the earphone/headphone department due to the inconvenience added from the required recharging of batteries.

Would you rather use a battery powered mouse v cabled mouse? Most people simply use the cabled mouse as the convenience of not having to switch/recharge batteries outweighs any benefits that come from the Bluetooth enabled mouse.

Taptic Engine

This is somewhat of a bittersweet addition because as we most know, this came at the cost of the headphone jack. In reality, it’s an addition that isn’t necessary and doesn’t add too much value to the average phone user. Vibrations are generally an afterthought and definitely not an issue that warranted significant improvement.

If you’re unhappy with the changes, you’re not alone. Many loyal Apple customers are choosing not to buy the iPhone 7 for various reasons. There are many that have waited for the iPhone 7 to upgrade but have decided against upgrading to it and have chosen to buy one of its predecessors, the iPhone 6 or 6S. Since prices for the iPhone 6/6S haven’t fallen that much since the release of the iPhone 7 it may be smarter to buy a cheap second hand iPhone to save money whilst owning a proven iPhone model. If you can’t afford to buy a flagship phone like the iPhone 6/6S/7 outright, you can consider selling your old mobile phone for cash. There are now many websites that pay cash for mobile phones and tablets.

Web application vulnerabilities have shot to an all-time high; thanks to a volley of sophisticated hacking tools in the hands of cyber cons. These tools have the capability of automatically launching a well-coordinated attack. And the attacks are not limited to a single website; rather they can be launched against multiple vulnerable websites at the same time. Earlier, only large corporate websites were the prospective targets of these malicious hackers. But now, even smaller websites are susceptible to these automated attacks. Thus, it has become a necessity to incorporate web application security solutions irrespective of the size of the company. For your business, the consequence of compromising the website can be devastating.

Common Web Application Security Attacks and Their Solutions

Here are a few things concerning the security of your website that you should keep in mind:

What Makes a Web Application a Target?

Web applications make it easy for malicious visitors to access a website’s two most vital resources, the database server and the web server. This makes the web applications vulnerable to attacks and exploitation by hackers. A few reasons a web application a prospective target may include:

High site traffic: If your website is popular, it means that your site’s visits per second are very high. Hacking your website and damaging its performance and availability help your competitors to tarnish your brand image.

Political and Ideological Differences: Religious and political extremists often attack their opponents’ websites to grab the attention and make a statement.

Unhappy Employees: Websites or web applications are not always attacked by outsiders. Some attacks are also launched by the employees who sell the inside information to competitors.

What are the Most Common Attacks on Web Applications?

Malicious hackers can attack a web application in several ways, the common being:

SQL Injection: Hackers can get access to a company’s database through SQL injection. Such attacks help them imitate the identity of a user and alter or destroy data saved in the database. They insert malicious SQL statements into the field forms to gather information from the database. When hackers get access to the database, they can easily modify or delete certain information from the database.

Cross-site Scripting (XSS): XSS attacks occur when a hacker injects a malicious script into a vulnerable web application. These scripts plant malicious software on visitors’ computer, subsequently hijacking their sessions and stealing their cookies.

Distributed Denial of Service Attacks (DDoS): DDoS attacks make a particular web application temporarily unavailable. A huge number of IP addresses are used to generate requests which flood a site with traffic leaving it incapable of processing and responding to valid requests.

Cross Site Request Forgery (CSRF): Such an attack hijacks trusted user sessions and makes unwanted purchases on the user’s behalf. CSRF attacks trick users to click links or download images that execute unknown and unwanted actions.

How Can You Protect Your Web Application?

These days, different tools and methods are available to cyber security personnel that can be used to protect a website. For every type of attack, there is a solution, and the best approach is to use an on-going process that will protect both you web application and user credentials. Some common protective measures include:

Code Reviews: These help in identifying vulnerable codes in the development stage.

Code Scanners: Static and dynamic code scanners automatically check for vulnerabilities.

Bug Bounty Programs: These programs help professional pen testers to spot bugs in a website.

CAPTCHA: This helps you to ensure that requests are ‘human-generated,’ and therefore not ‘bot-generated’.

Web Application Firewall (WAF): It monitors a website’s network and blocks potential attacks.

Your users are sharing sensitive information with the confidence that you will keep them safe and secure. Any leakage of information and their subsequent abuse can completely ruin your brand’s credibility in the market. And THIS is precisely what the hackers want. If you want to avoid such predicaments, adopt web application security solutions and keep your online assets protected from cyber-attacks. This will help in ensuring user satisfactions and maintaining company reputation.
