What would your Galaxy Note 4 look like if you designed it yourself? You can find this out with a company that allows you to design skins for your cell phone, tablets, iPhones and many other devices. Skins allow you to customize your device and make it uniquely your own. You can personalize the colour, texture, and finish to suit your individual taste and personality. With a skin that’s individualized just for you, your Galaxy Note 4 won’t be confused with anyone else’s.

Not only will your phone be different and attractive, but your customized skin will also protect it from scratches and nicks. The skin’s material provides a sleek grip, maintaining the light, comfortable feel of your phone that you would lose with bulkier cases.

The hard plastic that makes up most cases isn't enjoyable to hold and is easily scratched, so the finish rarely stand the test of time. A better grip afforded by a vinyl skin also helps prevent your phone from being dropped as often, further reducing the chances of damage.

Galaxy Note 4

Your personalized, customized skin is designed to fit your phone like a glove. Its versatile and durable vinyl material means that it can be cut exactly to your Galaxy Note 4’s specific dimensions, including its curved display. With its form-fitting material, you’ll still have easy access to your power and USB connector ports so your phone keeps its full functionality.

There are some major differences to watch out for in companies who supply skins. Some companies use cheap materials that will not stand up to the wear and tear of everyday use. Other companies may offer what seem like a bargain until you see the total cost with shipping and handling. To get your personalized custom skin of the best quality vinyl, find a company that gives you the total cost, including tax and shipping as well as offer the variety in colours, textures and finishes you desire.

Skins are inexpensive enough for you to change them for different occasions; when you shop at dbrand.com/shop/galaxy-note-4 most of them cost under $20. You can switch between styles, easily keeping within your budget. You may want a different skin for when you have an important business meeting.

You may want a titanium or gold skin for a special occasion, or go for a simple black or brown skin for everyday use. Switching between your different skins is hassle-free, as the best skin providers won’t leave behind sticky residues, so you can change your device’s look without any negative consequences.

Finding the right company to provide you with these options and the best quality at the best price will give you a personalized phone that is entirely your own taste and fashion. Whether you want a skin for Galaxy Note 4, Nexus 4, iPhone or HTC Touch, the choice is yours, so remember: invest in a skin and forget the factory!

A RAW file system is a state of hard drive or any other storage media, which is not recognized by the operating system. A RAW hard drive does not contain any file system. It cannot either be formatted or nor be used for any storage purpose.

This often happens when the volume information that determines the file system type or location on the disk are damaged or corrupted, usually they are the partition table or the boot sector. There could be multiple causes of a RAW hard drive, such as virus infection, abrupt shut down operating system, format failure, power outages, power failure, etc. Since the operating system does not identify any file system in the partition, and it declare the drive as RAW.

At times, a normal hard drive become corrupt and looks like it has lost file system. A RAW hard drive shows various error messages, after connecting with the system. In Windows, when you try to recover data from your RAW hard drive by CHKDSK tool, but it also not repair the problem, then an error occurs and says that it is unable to perform CHKDSK operation on RAW drives. The error message looks like:

CHKDSK cannot be run on this drive
The type of the file system is RAW.
CHKDSK is not available for RAW drives.

Basically, CHKDSK (Checkdisk) is a Windows command and is used to display the file system integrity status of hard disks and is capable to fix logical file system errors. It verifies the logical integrity of a file system and in case of any logical inconsistencies in file system data, it automatically performs repair actions on the file system data.

In Windows Disk Management, the RAW partition hard drive or without a file system type hard disk looks like:

When you check the properties of the hard drive or volume, it will show both used and free spaces as 0 byte in size for the raw drive.



How to troubleshoot a RAW hard drive

Whenever Windows do not recognize the file system of the hard drive partition, it asks you to format it to create a new file system. This process surely makes your hard drive usable, but you will lose the data stored on the RAW hard drive. Therefore, to recover the data from a RAW hard drive do not format it.

In order to repair your RAW hard drive without losing your files, the most prominent and recommended option is to use best data recovery software. These tools are designed to help you to restore your lost files from the RAW file system.

These data recovery tools recognize the internal structure of the data on the file system and recover these lost files by using powerful algorithms. As there are many data recovery tools available, but all of them do not provide RAW recovery feature. A wrong recovery method may remove your data permanently from the RAW hard drive.

Stellar Phoenix Partition Recovery – Professional

This is a recommended tool that you can use to recover your RAW or inaccessible hard drive. This tool can understand the internals of the RAW file system and recovers data from RAW, lost, deleted, or inaccessible partitions from Windows based hard drives and removable storage media.

This tool can recover missing files from FAT, NTFS, and ExFAT file system based hard drive, volumes and supported external media. Its 'Raw Recovery' feature promises to recover missing data from your severely corrupt media flawlessly and support a wide range of file types including photos, documents, and multimedia files. Additionally, this data recovery utility supports recovery of deleted email data with MS Outlook and Outlook Express based file formats.

Tips to minimize the risks


• Before selecting any powerful data recovery software, you must check whether your hard drive is physically damaged or not. If there will be any kind of physical damage, then always take the help of a professional expert or consider to sending the drive to experienced data recovery service provider.

• In case you are using a solid-state drive (SSD) then do not continue to connect them with your system after corruption. As these drives are very different than normal hard drives and can remove important data on a RAW partition just by connecting them with power. Connect them with your system when you are all set to do RAW recovery.

MS Outlook is widely used in corporate and business sectors to carry out formal as well as informal communication. Due to integrated set of advance features and graphical user interface user finds it easy to use for dealing with day to day messages.

There are two modes in which Outlook is used one is IMAP/POP3 configuration or second is Exchange Server. When users use Outlook with IMAP or POP 3 protocols than all mailbox data gets stored in PST (Personal Storage Table). Whereas on the other hand when Outlook is used in conjunction with Exchange Server then OST file is created to save all mailbox data.

In this upcoming segment we will discuss about MS Outlook OST files, its corruption issues and best way to convert OST to PST for users to regain access to inaccessible Cached file data.


OST Files And Its Benefits

MS Outlook when used integrated with Exchange server, provides lot of benefits for users including provision to work in offline mode and security of data. All mailbox data of Outlook gets saved in Offline storage table files and saved on local hard drive of computer.

These OST files are replica of Exchange mailbox data that can be accessed on local desktop of users. Even if the internet connection with Exchange server is not available, users can access their mailbox data in the form of OST files.

Also when users face downtime issues in Exchange Server then only way to access mailbox data is through the medium of OST files. Additionally, if users face server crash scenarios then also only way to regain access to Exchange data is through OST files.

Why OST Becomes Inaccessible?

An email account is provided for users at their workplace to communicate with each other. Most of them use Exchange Server accounts to maintain record of all ongoing and outgoing messages.This not only helps to enhance work flow but also allow users to work on emails and other mailbox data in offline mode.

But there are times when administrators accidentally or intentionally delete account from Exchange server for which Outlook is configured and OST file becomes orphaned. Also when employees leave the current place of employment, they want to take mail messages or contacts with them.

They are not aware of the fact that when they delete the account associated with OST files the data saved in them becomes unusable or inaccessible. OST files can be only used with Exchange account which is used to create it. In such case only way left to take OST file data with them is converting OST to PST which can be further imported in Outlook.

Sometimes OST file also gets corrupt when it starts sync data with Exchange server. When there are interruptions in synchronization process, OST file functionality gets disturbed and results in corruption. In such case whenever user try to open OST file it throws error message like “Cannot connect with default email folder. Xxxx.ost file is not an offline folder file”.

OST files data can be accessed in two ways:
1. There must be accessibility to Exchange account for which OST file is created
2. There must be restore point in computer that allow restoration of contents

If none of the above listed factors are available to access OST files data then, the need for third party tool comes in demand. Alternatively, there are some manual procedures that help to repair OST file data.

Resolutions

Archive feature to move or copy mailbox OST items to PST is one suitable option if only emails data needs to be exported. This method does not work with contacts lists, therefore for migrating all mailbox items this could not be suitable method.

There is a built-in program to fix OST file issues named as Scanost.exe, this tool help to check and repair all components of OST file with Exchange mailbox and fix the issue. But there are times when OST file issues are still not resolved and in such circumstances only option left is third party OST Recovery program.

The tool is advance program that provides recovery and conversion of Outlook offline folders data into PST, EML and MSG formats. The tool has powerful scanning modes that provide recovery of even severely corrupted OST files without any data loss. Additionally, users canretrieve even permanently deleted data from Outlook cached files.

Technology and its inevitable reality

Technology is the most powerful reality of our lives, it not only directs and has changed the dynamics of our routine work, but also has created tremendous opportunities for the world to grow and evolve in such a way, that it has the answer to almost every challenge and space.

With technology, life has never been so easy and its penetration is the reality of our lives, believe it or not we just cannot survive anymore without depending on machines, laptops, phones and all other kinds of technological advancements in our journey of life.

Similarly the penetration of technology has also increased in the educational sector of the academic industry. It has helped the transition of schools, colleges and universities towards the modern era of teaching and operating. Further, it has made learning more interactive, friendly, and creative as well as interesting.


Technological trends within the academic industry

The 21st century world is all about modernization and continuous improvements. It demands evolving of things from one phase to another and technology is something that assists in that evolution.

If we talk about the technological era and the academic industry, we will not be surprised to see the kind of innovations that have taken place and have created an interesting space for stakeholders within the industry to work with. The most common technological trends in classroom which are now also the very basic ones are the use of projectors, computers and the internet for learning assistance and enhanced methods of delivering lectures.

Advanced versions of technological trends

If we talk about some of the most advanced uses of technological trends within the academic sector, then we will have to turn our heads towards terrific scientific labs that have been developed by top institutions, they use augmented reality in learning and other kinds of equipment that give a close to real life experience for students in order to help them learn and gain knowledge better. Technology also makes learning more practice and close to reality which is something that enhances the interest levels and motivation to study.

Dependency on technology

Gone are the days when students were taught on white and blackboards. A modern student needs visually attractive lectures, which is why the use and dependence on projection screens has increased over time. The great benefit with this is that it has the capacity to make lectures far more appealing, interactive and meaningful than just writing on boring white boards.

When technology is introduced within the classrooms, it automatically creates a hype amongst students. They find it more interactive and convenient to learn when aided with different technological equipment. When they move away from the clich├ęd versions of teaching, even the teachers feel empowered strong and creative.

So the overall morale of the classrooms builds up towards a positive vibe. This is the reason that dependence on technology is growing as time passes by, in the future we might see that classrooms are completely based around different technological equipment and computers.

In this advanced age of online buying and selling, many businesses have realized that only advertising via conventional means is not enough.

Social media and the internet have opened up new avenues for companies to not only advertise their products and services, but they can also engage customers and get feedback, all this without spending big bucks. Of course, there is a catch.

As there are thousands of businesses on the World Wide Web trying to get the attention of the consumer, it proves to be hard to be THE ONE that breaks through the clutter!


Writing a blog post

Companies have realized that a blog is a good way to not only capture the attention of users, but also communicate with them and advertize at the same time. But, again writing just a blog is not enough. You need to stand out.

Here are a few tips that can help you to write blog posts that are interesting as well as alluring.

Keep in mind your customer:

The first thing you need to remember is your consumer. The topic of the blog post as well as the content should be directly related to your target market. 

Just like in traditional means of advertising, you identify your consumer, their tastes and interests, it is highly critical that before writing a blog post, you do the same and identify your audience. Otherwise, writing about general stuff that does not appeal to your target market will be a waste of time.

Your research should be thorough:

After you have finalized your topic, you should focus on the content. You must have heard that in a blog post, content is the king. So your content should be well researched and well thought out.

Moreover, your content should be attention grabbing. As mentioned earlier, with a plethora of businesses trying the attention of the consumer has given the consumers many options. If your post does not appeal to them after reading the first two three lines, they will move on.

Don’t forget that your content should also be useful to the consumer. Otherwise, they will not come back!

Content is the king, but visuals matter too!

After you have mastered your content and finalized it, you should focus on the visual aids. The great thing about marketing via blog posts is that you can add relevant pictures as well as videos that will help your consumers and grab their attention.

So, try to make your blog post visually appealing by using images and videos. Also, make headings, sub headings and different categories on your blog post so that it looks organized.

Optimize your post:

The most important element of your blog post is that it must be SEO optimized. You have to include keywords, but don’t cram them. 

Add a meta description, about 150 to 160 characters long.
And last but not the least, make your website mobile optimized so that customers can access your website and post via their handheld devices too, this will help you to increase your click rate.

There’s a new app floating about that a lot of people have been talking about. It’s called XNSPY and it is basically a cell phone parental control that allows parents to look through their child’s smartphone like a book. I wanted to know how much truth there was to this claim so I installed it on my son’s phone for a while just to test it out. Here’s what I found.

The Installation Experience

Installing XNSPY was easy enough. After I’d bought my subscription off the website, I just had to put it on my son’s phone. Now do you see the problem here? This step wasn’t as difficult for me because I had my son’s consent (I had to bribe him a little). But parents that want to go down the private investigator route are going to find this bit a little more difficult. They’ll have to be sneaky about it, especially these days where teenagers are so attached to their smartphones, they might as well be another limb.

The XNSPY Control Panel

Here’s what I liked about XNSPY—you can use it from your computer. This is great for working parents because they can just have their Control Panel open on their desktops and can keep regular checks on their kids. The Control Panel under discussion consists of all the buttons and tabs of the features the mobile parenting app has to offer. It’s pretty user friendly—minimalistic, big buttons that scream click me. You’d be able to find your way around.

XNSPY

The XNSPY Features

Now the features I just mentioned. I had to know if XNSPY actually lets parents go through their kid’s phone entirely. I bought the Premium package because it gives you full access to all their features. This includes:
·         Monitor calls
·         Monitor texts
·         Monitor IMs
·         Record phone surrounds
·         Monitor Email
·         Monitor Phonebook
·         Monitor stored multimedia
·         Monitor internet browsing
·         Monitor GPS location
·         View list of installed apps
·         But certain words, contacts and locations of the Watchlist
So I suppose you could say yes, I was literally able to look through everything my son had or did on his phone.

Is XNSPY Worth Installing?


After a examining it for about 10 days, I was able to find out a lot more about my son. I knew the places he went to after school. I knew what he talked about to his friends on WhatsApp. In this case, I’d say yes, XNSPY is completely worth buying. This is the cell phone parental control you have always wanted.

If you're like most people, you'd like to think that VoIP is a great technology that solves all of our communication problems. You'd like to think that VoIP is a panacea for every communication need that we might have. Right?

Not so, dear reader, not so.

Although there are indeed many good things to say about VoIP — I would be the last to deny that there were — there are still many things amiss with it.

I'm hardly a Luddite. I'm not advocating a return en masse to the days of candlestick handsets and human-operated switchboards. Yet there are things to think about before shifting over to IP communications mode. By the same token, there are still some good things to say about PSTN phone systems — before they're all absorbed into the great IP pie-in-the-sky, that is.

IP Communications

No Dial Tone

First of all, if you grew up with a dial tone like I did, there's the simple familiarity and ease of the PSTN network. (The house that I grew up in had a rotary phone, if you can believe that.) You pick up the phone, you get your dial tone, you place your call, and that's that. If you didn't get the dial tone, then another extension in the house was off the hook, or another house on the party line was using the phone, and you had to wait a bit. Yes, that and the dial phone dates me quite a bit, I know. Don't care, either.

Point is, it was simple. And if the power went out, you could still count on the dial tone being there, because the power came from the PSTN network, not from the wall, as it does with VoIP phones. So you could still call 911 if you had to.

Quality of Service

The next problem I see with VoIP phones — not with the expensive business-class systems, but with the cheap MagicJack type systems, which in the interests of full disclosure I'll tell you I have no direct personal experience with. Yet I've gotten calls from people I suspect were using them. Those problems have to do with Quality of Service.

So many things have to happen in quick concert for good QoS on a VoIP call. Voice data has to be converted to digital, compressed, sent to the other end, decompressed and converted to sound; then the reverse process has to happen for the return trip. It all has to happen in milliseconds in order to sound natural. If it takes any longer, then you get echo, or it sounds like you're talking to a Martian, or you're talking over the other end of the conversation.

Not good. No one wants that.

Bandwidth

3And then there's the issue of bandwidth. VoIP chews up bandwidth like a great white shark goes through tuna fish. If you're the only one using the broadband connection, you're golden.

But if your cousin Harville is watching reruns of Laverne and Shirley on Netflix in the other room while you're trying to call Dad, then he's going to see artifacts on his screen. At the same time, you're going to be saying "What? What was that, Dad?" a whole lot, because you won't be able to understand him very well, and it's pretty unlikely he'll be able to understand you, either.

Why? Because you got the cheap broadband, that's why. You thought the 15 Mbps download with 1.5 Mbps upload would do you just fine. Should have thought ahead, son, because that's good for one device at a time, not two or three. Might want to go with a beefier package, like the 50/5 or 110/11. These packages are what my local ISP offers, by the way; yours might be different.
