Here at Fueled, we are big Star Wars fans, and we were wondering recently what phone each Star Wars character would have. Here is the breakdown.

Han Solo: iPhone 6

Like the Millenium Falcon, this may appear to be behind the times (according to Android users), but it runs smoothly and is likely the best ship (phone) in the fleet. The iPhones are known for being as reliable as a blaster, and when Han is in a pinch, which he often is, he needs the trustiest phone around.

Chewbacca: iPhone 6+

With those hands, he needs a phablet. Looking at his best friend, Han, he’ll probably go with the same OS so they can iChat each other, and handoff all relevant smuggling documents. Siri is not yet available in Wookie.

Luke: iPhone 5S

Because the technology is great, but he still has much to learn. Luke might be powerful, but he’s inexperienced and hot-headed so give him some time with the previous model before moving onto the 6. Does not come with a lightsaber app.

Smartphone


Leia: iPhone 6
Best way to communicate with everyone, and as a leader, she needs the best. As a bonus, Han has one as well, and her’s is better than her brother’s. Princess Leia’s cool and style needs to translate to a phone, and this is the best option.

Darth Vader: Samsung Galaxy S5

Because no galactic dictator is complete without all the bells, whistles, and the power of a Samsung using Android. The Samsung S5 is large and imposing, and looks great in black and red. Bluetooth does not yet have a lightsaber connection.

The Emperor: LG G3

Running on the same OS as his evil minion, he just doesn't have the scariness and imposing figure of Darth Vader. Kind of like Samsung and LG...

Obi Wan Kenobi: Flip Phone

Give the man a break, after all the years living among the Tusken Raiders he probably dosn’t really want to take the time to get used to a smartphone. Let the old man have his flip phone.

R2-D2 and C-3PO: Windows Phone

Because these are certainly not the droids you are looking for.

Jar Jar Binks: Blackberry (any)

Because no one really has any use for him or the phone.

Over the years, Facebook has grown to be the largest and longest lasting social networking platform to grace our screens. Constantly adapting and providing new and relevant functionality, while remaining true to its core purpose and what we know and love - Facebook has earned its place in our hearts, homes, laptops and phones. 
With over 829M daily active users, Facebook is a rather untapped resource in the area of gathering consumer research and information. That is until news was released recently about various groups of “emotional experiments” conducted unbeknownst to a number of the participating Facebook users.

The Wall Street Journal reports that in 2012, 700,000 users were a part of a psychological experiment measuring the effects of positive stories vs negative stories in newsfeeds and how it affected the types of things the viewing user posted. While many people have voiced their concern about these types of tests having not been informed prior to, or even post testing, the point of contention seems a lie at the ethics of this type of testing.
On one hand, as a user who’s chosen to use Facebook services as they’re presented, a problem lies in not being informed that you’re a participant in any type of study, as that was not what was initially agreed upon. 
It’s one thing to be observed in your use of a particular product or service, especially one that’s provided for free, but it dives into new territory when that service begins to manipulate the things you interact with and that make your experience unique. 
In gauging the positive and negative psychological effects of different posts in a newsfeed, little to no consideration was taken regarding the mental conditions those users may be dealing with in real life, aside from their time online. 
While it may seem unlikely that someone could have a drastic reaction to news in their feed, you can never be sure what triggers may set someone off consciously or subconsciously. I’d say it’s wholly irresponsible to operate with such little respect to the fragility of someone’s mental state. Even when the chances of adverse reactions are low, the presence of Murphy’s Law is inarguable.
On the other hand however, how fruitful and effective would science be if it didn't take necessary risks in the name of understanding and solving problems? The type of information gathered about newsfeed posts could prove invaluable to a numerous organizations ranging from political involvement, to evaluating the mental health of veterans and providing resources to people who suffer from loneliness and depression. 
Use the same argument but in the inverse, these tests do appear to be low-risk assessments not with fabricated information but just the rearranging of already existing topics and headlines.

There are strong arguments for the ethical implications on either side of the fence, but the fact remains that this is something people would have liked to have been informed of. By giving people the opportunity to opt in or out of a trial would definitely affect the data pool, but there are proven ways to deal in voluntary numbers and still receive quality information. 
It’s also worth noting that some of Facebook’s contemporaries such as Twitter, Yahoo and Google, also test and observe their users. So what are your thoughts on the existence of these trials?

Text messaging, also known as Short Messaging Service (SMS) and Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS), is a capability that all reasonably modern mobile phones have. MMS is SMS paired with audio, video, or picture files, A study performed earlier this year by Ericsson tells us that across the world, the number of mobile subscribers reported is in the neighborhood of 4.5 billion users.

Three out of five human beings on the planet send text messages. According to the Pew Research Center, a nonpartisan think tank based in Washington D.C., the average American checks their phone up to 150 times a day to see if they have gotten any new text or MMS messages. The same study showed that 29 percent of people couldn't live without their mobile phones.

SMS/MMS Beats Emails in Attention Gathering

Statistics in these reports also show that the chances of anyone opening a given SMS text message are 98 percent, even if the sender is unknown to them. They'll usually open that message within three minutes of its receipt.

And this is compared to an open rate of only 22 percent for marketing messages that are emailed out! "Open rate" is a metric used mostly by marketers to get an idea of how many users actually open the commercial emails that they send out. The measurement has now been expanded to include SMS and MMS messages.

In short, if your company has any kind of marketing campaign, you may enjoy a great deal of success partnering with a text messaging provider. It reaches an extremely engaged audience; it helps drive product awareness; it boosts brand conversation; it helps measure your ad value; and it's simply more effective than traditional tools.

Another option for your company is to take your landline numbers and text-enable them. What this would do is take the same number your customers would use to call in to a contact center, and simply send it a text instead.

In essence, they would be texting your call center instead of calling it; you would need to set up that infrastructure, of course, but in many ways a texting gateway is more efficient than traditional call centers:

• One trained agent can work several conversations at the same time, thereby reducing customer irritation levels and wait times.
• Text conversations can be easily transitioned to a live agent, where required.
• Automatic responses can be configured for common questions or situations.
• An agent can gain some context for a call by viewing the history of an SMS conversation.

Some Interesting Facts about SMS

Many people in developed nations take SMS for granted, but in less advantaged areas, SMS is helping more and more people every day. Cell phones in developing areas are at the same time more inexpensive and in more widespread use than even the most basic of services we see and take for granted domestically, like electricity or brick-and-mortar banks.

It's a fact that 1.7 billion people on the planet possess a mobile phone, yet have no bank account; cell subscriptions outstrip bank accounts by about 75 percent in developing areas. Indeed, social activists and entrepreneurs alike have been able to take advantage of this fact in many outstanding ways.

• NATO was able to increase the salaries of Afghan police officers by 36 percent by using mobile phone technology.
• Former president of the Philippines Macapagel-Arroyo created incoming texting channels for 54 government agencies.
• HP refined a system to verify that medicine is genuine for Nigerians and Ghanaians and Nigerians.

It's quite clear that the ground related to text messaging is still very fertile for development, for established companies and entrepreneurs alike.

There seems to be a certain liking at the moment for new smartphones that have many resembles to the iPhones. One such example is the Spice Mi-549 that hasn't yet been officially launched but shall soon hit the markets by year end.

The Spice Mi-549 has been listed online at many sites and is stated at 7999 INR presently. This is probably the second such ‘imitation’ of the iPhone this month, the first one being Lenovo Sisley S90! These cheap iPhone 6 look alike are amazingly furbished with features that can beat down the pricier phones hands down any day of any month. Ingenious, smart and the sleek design allows this phone to stand apart in addition to its minimal pricing.

Spice mobiles in India present Spice Mi 549 has many similarities with the iPhone 6 plus. To start with, the volume rockers and power button placements, the Unibody design language of Spice Mi-549 is strikingly similar to the slim and curvaceous Apple product. On top of that, the camera bump on the left top-corner and the two dark grey lines situated at the top and below respectively on the rear-side of the body is again uncannily similar.

The iPhone-inspired design of Spice Mi-549 is raising many eyebrows and garnering a lot of attention as iPhone 6 is not affordable for the middle class in India. Official comments from Spice are yet to be received from onto whether the “antenna bands” perform any function or is it just plain plagiarism to achieve that design perfection. The specification of Spice Mi-549 doesn't offer many surprises as the company only offers a single advantage that being its 5.5 inch full HD display over other budget level smart phones.

Spice Mi 549

Spice Mi-549 specifications


  • It’s got a bright and brilliant display with screen size of 5.5-inch and pixel quality of 1920 x 1080 pixels. It’s completely Full HD display is a class apart in these budget smartphone.
  • The all-powerful processor of 1.3 GHz quad-core with unmatched capabilities for all multimedia performance tussles.
  • The all essential expandable memory of up to 32GB in the Indian mobile market is present. 1GB RAM and 8GB internal memory are more memory features in this action packed device.
  • The Operating System is of Android 4.4 (Kitkat).
  • SIM: Dual SIM with Dual Standby
  • A Primary Camera of 8MP with autofocus and LED Flash is present. Also, its 1080p Full HD video recording could be another game changer in this category.
  • The Secondary Camera is of only about 2MP front-facing but its quality is not that bad and is infact quite good in exceptionally dark areas.
  • A 3.5mm audio jack along with the all-important FM Radio for the Indian consumers and similar music related performances.
  • The phone is truly very light and is only 9.3mm thick. It only weighs about 175 grams.
  • Supports Micro USB charging, Proximity, accelerometer and ambient light sensors.
  • It supports various Connectivity platforms and is also enabled with: 3G HSPA+, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS.
  • The Battery life is also good and the phone is supplemented with the 2200mAh battery.


The Spice Mi-549 is available online at multiple sites. We’ll just have wait till the release to check it out which should be before this calendar year ends. It’s extremely uncertain as to why has “HomeShop18” listed Mi-549 in such a hurry as not even Spice has officially launched the device yet.

According to the listing this price is 11% off on MRP which is Rs. 8,999. One year manufacturer warranty is offered on the device. Also, the Spice Mi-549 is marked as “out of stock”, which increases the suspicion around the device and is a strange beginning to this phones market performance, if there would be any!

One thing is for sure, that the Spice Mi 549 has to be classified as a poor attempt to clone the Apple smartphones. And the outcome is somewhat of a weird-looking device, especially the rear panels it won't be surprising if doesn't performs as per the company’s expectations in the markets. Let’s wait and see the results for that. Fingers Crossed!

To get the most out of your conference experience, you should clarify your goals in reference to what you want out of SEO instruction. Look over the brochure and conference information to find the sessions that will best meet the goals you have set.

Don’t Just Gather Information, Use it

Once you get the information for the experts and the many sessions that meets your needs, make plans to set them in motion. So many times, at a conference, a person has great ideas and plans to implement the information they gather.

SEO Conferences

But, often, once they are home, they just forget about it. The information is held in notebooks, books bought at the conference, and even tapes. But, storing information won’t give you the benefit you want. You have to use it.

Take Advantage of the Experts Available to You

The speakers chosen to present at conferences are the cream of the crop. Take advantage of their knowledge and expertise and learn all you can.

Select Sessions Based on Your Greatest Need

You did an assessment of your goals and what you most want for your conference experience. Take that information and use it to look over the conference sessions. Choose those that will most address you needs and deficits.

Take Advantage of Early Registration and Group Discounts

The tuition for a conference can get pricey for the best ones. However, most offer discounts for early registration and for groups of three or more. Take advantage of these. Ask around among co-workers or colleagues and find companions to go with you and get this discount. You may also be able to share motel expenses by sharing a room.

Corporate world is a merciless playing field for competing companies and one small mistake can lead to immense losses. Communication system is the backbone of every growing company that wants to aggressively sell its products or services.

Business collaborations can succeed or fail depending on the connection quality and available solutions. A lack of proper and efficient communication among the key people can result in a loss of business.

In order to eliminate all the bottlenecks in communications, companies are fast switching to VoIP or Voice over Internet Protocol. The initial releases of this communication technology did not quite impress as expected.

However, within the next few years several advancements were made and quality of connection as well as the performance was vastly improved. Virtual connectivity is now a reality and the market is responding positively towards adopting it. The current trend in the marketplace is to move to the cloud.


There are several cloud based providers in the market who are offering communications solutions to small, medium and large scale businesses. If you have decided to hire the services of a cloud-based service provider, it is imperative to set your priorities right and this includes both security and analytics.

Analytics will give you a perspective about the robustness of the system. It would also help you to understand whether your connection is vulnerable to hackers who are on the prowl to steal valuable information or VoIP minutes.

In order to choose the perfect service provider in the market, it is important that you do a little research about the providers and make the choice based on facts. You need to ask questions so as to understand the real goal of the service providers. There are several service providers who enter the market with the sole aim of making profit.

However, you need to find companies that not only want to make profit but are interested to provide real solutions to business problems. Customers are never the priority of companies that want to only make profit and not help businesses through proper solutions.

It is really challenging to understand the real motive of service providers but you can get an idea if you analyse their sales pitch. Vendors who are ready to only offer you their package deal are not at all interested in your business needs or providing solutions.

They intend to only close the sales deal. If you choose one such provider then things might look fine initially but as your expand and look to add more features, you will find that the performance of your communication system starts to go downhill. It is likely that you are not going to find the vendor by your side during such a crucial period.

On the other hand, if you choose a vendor who wants to learn about your business challenges and is eager to provide solutions to the business problem. You should choose the vendor who is ready to recommend the solutions that can suffice your business needs.

There are companies like Toshiba who have come up with innovative cloud-based solution like UCedge. The advantages of using this cloud-based solution are:
• Only one number can be used to make or receive calls from a variety of devices like Tablets, Smartphones etc.
• You can use UCedge to work from anywhere and use any mobile devices to access the centralized communication system

• The privacy of your mobile number can be protected by providing only the office phone number as the caller ID.

• You will be able to make overseas calls from your mobile phone at even landline rates

• Office voicemails can be easily accessed using the UCedge solution
The best thing about UCedge is that it is even compatible with other popular solutions like Strata CIX, VIPedge and IPedge.

Samsung recently launched Galaxy S Duos 3 in the Indian market but it came out quietly. There was no official announcement regarding the phone and it was noticed after it surfaced online. It is the next device in the Samsung Galaxy S Duos series.

It has been listed at Samsung’s India eStore and some other online retailers and has been priced at INR 8150. This device is the successor to Galaxy S Duos 2 but sadly it doesn’t feel like an upgrade because the hardware isn’t very different.

It runs a newer version of android as compared to the previous device. The device comes with a 5 megapixel primary camera like the previous device and also gets a LED flash. We take a closer look at this device and list down its pros and cons.

Samsung Galaxy S Duos 3

Pros

Dual SIM Support
The Galaxy S Duos started off with the dual SIM feature as its unique feature. The dual SIM feature is great help for someone who doesn’t like the hassle of carrying multiple devices. It supports micro SIM slots so even if you are moving from a newer device that has got micro SIM slot.

This way you won’t have to switch back to mini SIM to move to this device. Even if you don’t need a dual SIM device right now, it won’t hurt to have one. You might need the feature in near future and the S Duos 3 would help then.

Supports regional languages
There are a lot of devices that would provide you with support for a lot of languages. Most of the devices sold in India offer Hindi as one of the languages but what about other regional languages? These languages aren’t offered by most of the devices but there is still a fair share of people who would prefer to have their language on their device for ease of use.

The Galaxy S Duos 3 supports 14 different regional languages. This way it can cater to the languages of a large number of people and they can have their native language as the default language on their device.


Latest Android operating system
The device runs android 4.4.2 KitKat which is almost the latest version of android out there (if we ignore android 4.4.4). This way the operating system is more suited to low end hardware and runs easily on the device.

The interface gets the Samsung Touch Wiz UI on top of it. So it gets a new launcher as well as many features that are exclusive to Samsung devices. The Touch Wiz UI is nice to use and offers a large number of customisation options over the stock android interface. There is no word about an android version upgrade on this device in future.

Autofocus camera
The device has got a 5 megapixel primary camera and a VGA front camera. The primary camera on this device offers autofocus and comes with a LED flash. A large number of budget devices skip on the autofocus feature on the camera in favour of costs.

We have seen devices like Moto E and Nokia Lumia 530 come with fixed focus cameras to keep the costs down. The auto focus feature helps you obtain a sharp picture by focusing on the subject as compared to pictures captured by a fixed focus camera. The camera can also record videos in semi HD at 30 fps.

Battery life
The device is powered by a 1500 mAh battery. This would appear to be a low capacity battery compared to the capacities we are used to see on more powerful devices of today but it can handle its job well. Despite being a low capacity battery, it manages to power the device efficiently. The hardware is pretty basic and thus you get long standby times from this battery. People who need a basic power efficient device might want to consider this one for the battery life.


Cons

Dated hardware
The device runs a dual core processor with Cortex A7 cores. This hardware has been around for ages and lacks the power required for handling resource hungry apps. Even the basic messengers and social networking apps might cause trouble due to lack of processing power.

Low RAM
The previous Galaxy S Duos device, the Duos 2 offered 768 MB of RAM. While that wasn’t a lot, it was acceptable for a low end device. Now after the war in budget segment has gone fierce, Samsung has launched a device with just 512 MB of RAM.

This would cause a lot of trouble in device operating. While KitKat is optimised to run on this much RAM, most apps would take up a large fraction of it. Multitasking is a strict no-no. The amount of RAM really chokes down the already crippled capabilities of this device.

Storage
The device offers just 4 GB of on-board storage. The android operating system and the system apps take up a lot of space and you don’t end up getting a lot of storage. With such a small amount of storage, you always run at a risk of using it all up in installing applications and games.

You would have to keep a large number of apps on memory card and still the phone memory would be taken up by the app data. Moreover the previous device supported micro SD cards up to 64 GB however this one supports half of that.

Display
The device has got a 4 inch WVGA display. The display is small and the resolution is low by today’s standards. You get a pixel density of just 233 ppi. The display isn’t an IPS panel so the contrast, colour and viewing angles aren’t any good either.

Price
All this hardware could have been accepted if the price was justified. The device comes with a price tag north of 8K which makes it a poor value for money. You can pick Asus Zenfone 4 or Moto E for less than this and they are much better devices.
