Google’s new approach to smartphones did mean the Nexus brand ended last year and was replaced withImage result for pixel 2 the Pixel: a smartphone completely made by Google with the highest ever rated camera, top specs and the latest Android stock software. A year has gone by and Google have released the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, both of which improve upon last year, increasing the specs in just about every area. However, are they great smartphones that should be considered when purchasing your next smartphone? To help you with this decision, here are the main pros and cons to the Pixel 2.

 

Pros

  1. Includes the latest Android stock operating system – Android Oreo
  2. Charging is USB Type-C with support for quick charging
  3. There is a finger print sensor, unlike Apple’s iPhone X
  4. It is water resistant up to IP68
  5. Highest rated smartphone camera (on the rear)
  6. Squeezable frame to open Google Assistant
  7. Entry model has 64GB of storage
  8. Specs inside are the latest, with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 and a Adreno 540 GPU
  9. It has a 5.6 inch full HD display
  10. A large 3,220 mAh battery, along with optimized software, for a long battery life
  11. Amazing performance
  12. No camera bump on the rear
  13. A great quality premium-feeling phone
  14. Operating system updates always come to Pixel phones first
  15. 4GB of RAM

 

Cons

  1. A very ‘2016’ design for a smartphone
  2. No wireless charging, unlike the new iPhones and Samsungs
  3. The front chins are still incredibly large, even for 2015/6!
  4. Quite expensive, starting at $649
  5. The finger print sensor, being on the back, may annoy some users
  6. There is no option to expand storage
  7. There is no headphone jack (which is ironic considering Google made a big deal out of keeping the headphone jack on the original Pixel last year)!
  8. Single SIM, unlike the likes of the OnePlus 5
  9. There are still side-bezels around the screen, unlike most of 2017’s smartphones.
  10. Non-removable battery

 

Conclusion

The main USP to Google smartphones comes with the operating system, where the consumer can expect to always have the latest and greatest software from Google, with it always being stock Android. For many, this is enough to buy the newest Pixel every year.

However, Google ditched the Nexus line up, which targeted mid-range smartphones, and opted for the high-end premium segment to target the likes of Apple and Samsung. The problem is that, to do this, the smartphones they release need to also have the designs that compete against Apple and Samsung.

Yes, the Pixel 2 is squeezable. However, the front chin on the Pixel 2 is almost criminal to have in 2017. Will people still buy it? Yes. But, I can imagine more people would rather pay a little more for the Pixel 2 XL ‘2017’ design than the Pixel 2.

Ultimately, forgetting the design, the Pixel 2 is a brilliant smartphone. The camera is the best ever on a smartphone. If you can get over the bezels on the front of the phone, then Google might be onto another winner of a smartphone.

A navigation menu is something that every website needs. What a navigation menu, at its core, allows Image result for navigation menuweb users to do is have one click access to many different areas to your website, making life for them browsing through your website much more convenient. As well as this, it also gives web users the opportunity to see what type of pages you have on your website, for which the web user may not have known existed without the page featuring in the navigation menu. From this, here are some examples of the types of links you should look to include in a navigation menu to provide it the functionality that will allow web users a freedom of browsing on your website.

  • About – Every website always needs an about page. This is so that the web user can read up on:
    • What the website is about
    • The creators behind the website
    • Reasons for the website being created
    • When the website was created
    • Anything else about the website that might be interesting
  • Categories/topics of articles – If you have articles all on similar topics of a high level topic (such as a car website looking at different makes of cars), it might make sense to include links to each of the topics/categories so that the web user can view a collection of articles about a relevant topic within one click. This only really works when you can include upwards of ten topic links within a hover navigation menu with drop down expansion.
  • Contact – Another necessity like the About page, every website should always have a contact page so that the web user can contact the owner of the website about, well, anything. It is typical for the web user to find the link to the contact page in the navigation menu at the top or at the footer of the website.
  • Advertise – Depending on the way the website is monetized will depend if you include a link to an advertising page. However, you will be surprised to know that a lot of advertisers do look for advertising deals direct with websites and not through advertising platforms. Therefore, it is always useful sticking an advertising link in the navigation menu.
  • Home – Although the logo on the website should link to the homepage, it can sometimes be beneficial to stick a ‘Home’ button at the far left of the navigation menu, especially if the navigation menu is floating – from doing this, the web user will always have access to the homepage no matter what page they are on and how far they have scrolled.
  • Social media – If you have space, it would be a good idea to stick social media links to the top three (Facebook, Twitter and some sort of email marketing, such as RSS or MailChimp). That way, you are providing the web user access to follow the website through a range of different platforms.

There are many ways you can market yourself online nowadays. You could have a blog, a YouTube Image result for instagramaccount or the typical Facebook and Twitter account millions of people have. One area that seems to be growing with interest is Instagram, considering it is one of, if not the, best way to share photos online in a very simple but effective way.

Gaining exposure on Instagram can be vital for both personal and business reasons. After all, there is that saying that a picture can be worth a thousand words. With this, the possibilities that Instagram offers is endless. Here are some ways you can increase the exposure of yourself on Instagram.

 

#1 Use Hashtags

Hashtags are a brilliant way to gain extra exposure. Hashtags are ways of getting your picture to become searchable to the hashtag you have used. For example, if I was lucky enough to own a Ferrari and took a picture of it, having a hashtag of #supercar would mean the picture of my Ferrari would appear for anyone who was searching using the #supercar hashtag.

Hashtags can also be used to comedy and other effects. For example, with the Ferrari picture, other hashtags could be #redpower or#toomuchtohandle. Both provide little snippet quotes which can be entertaining to read.

Either way, make sure you try to include, at least, one relevant hashtag with every image you upload.

 

#2 Engage with Others

Social media works on the grounds that it is all about interacting and engaging with others. Instagram is no different. For added exposure, you can:

  • Follow others – when you follow someone, they are notified that you follow. On Instagram, people tend to follow back: especially if you have nice images on your profile.
  • Comment – comments are a great way to converse with others and also increase the exposure of your account.
  • Like images – Just like a follow, users get notified when others like their images, improving the chances of them following you.

#3 Post Content Consistently

People are more likely to follow you if you continually post good content consistently. However, posting too much can have the opposite effect and cause people to unfollow you, if you appear to be clogging up their timeline. For this reason, try to post anywhere from 1 every other day up to 1-2 a day.

 

#4 Why are They Following You?

To gain good exposure on Instagram, you need to question why your followers want to even follow you. Is it because they know you? Is it because they like to see what you get up to in your life? Is it because you are really good at cooking and take lots of pictures of the food you make? Whatever you feel the reason is for people following you, you need to make sure you satisfy that need. For example, if you was a Formula One Driver, people do not want to follow you to see a selfie of you and your cat (well some people might…) but would rather see you take a selfie with your Formula One car and the cool perks of being a Formula One driver.

It has only been a few weeks since Apple released the much anticipated iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X in Image result for google pixel 2 xlpreparation for the holiday season and already Google has followed suit by releasing their flagship smartphones for the year. Named the Pixel and Pixel 2, both versions of the smartphone aim to solidify market share and improve upon it compared to their main competitors, from the likes of Apple and Samsung. With this, here is the main information you need to know about the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL with a verdict at the end to each smartphone.

 

Google Pixel 2

The Google Pixel 2 looks remarkably similar to the original Pixel, with the large bezels still appearing at the top and bottom. However, there have been a number of key improvements including:

  • 5 inch, full HD AMOLED display with always on technology for notifications.
  • Snapdragon 835 processor with 4GB of ram.
  • 12MP rear camera with 98 DxOMark (highest rated camera on a smartphone, again).
  • OIS and EIS with video recording.
  • Android 8.0 Oreo stock software.
  • ‘Squeeze’ sensor – this is a sensor which detects pressure exerts on the sides of the phone. Currently, Google is using it on the Pixel 2 to activate Google Assistant.

Verdict: The Pixel 2 is a good incremental upgrade to the original Pixel. For example, the squeeze sensor is a nice touch along with a better display, camera and internals. However, 2017 is the year of bezel less phones and it is rather surprisingly that the smaller of the two smartphones released by Google still has extremely large front bezels. Will this be enough to put people off the phone? Possibly, considering there are many bezel less phones that come in at much cheaper prices.

 

Google Pixel 2 XL

The Google Pixel 2 is pretty much identical in every way to the Pixel 2 – Google liked to make this point clear to have a dig at Apple during their press conference, considering the iPhone 8 Plus has the dual cameras as opposed to the single camera on the iPhone 8.

The main difference between the Pixel 2 and XL is with the design, for which the Pixel 2 has a 6-inch 2880×1440 pOLED, a larger battery coming in at 3,520mAh, as opposed to the Pixel 2’s 2,700mAh and a much smaller bezel at the top and bottom of the front of the phone, much in keeping with 2017 smartphones.

VerdictNow this is the smartphone that represents the best of what a smartphone can be for 2017. Coming with the best specs as well as a design that is in keeping with 2017 smartphones, the Google Pixel 2 is one that can directly compete with most smartphones on the market, and potentially beat them too.

 

Ultimately, though, the release of both Pixel 2 phones has come across as a little disappointing. Google made a big thing about keeping the headphone jack last year and have decided to remove it this year. The battery capacity for each is not as big as what it is for other smartphones in similar pricing categories and with 4GB of ram, it does not really future proof the phone for years of use unlike OnePlus have done with the 5 (with 6/8GB options). Nevertheless, both are still great phones that should sell plenty with the holiday season approaching.

It’s crazy to think that Google is around 20 years old. The search engine has been around for quite a longImage result for 2017 time and, with this, there have been changes to the algorithms as to how to calculate the organic ranking of websites and articles to go towards the goal of Google’s – to make the web user’s experience online better.

Making sure you perform search engine optimization on articles before you publish them is crucial to how much traffic your articles are likely to get. With this, here are some must dos for you to do when you are blogging in 2017, to make sure you utilize search engine traffic the most.

 

 

#1 Include an Image

Images are a necessity when blogging. From including a relevant image to your article, you have opened up your article to being processed by image search engines. With this, you will be surprised just how much traffic a new unique image can get from image search engines!

There are lots of ways to find new unique images to stick in your articles. You can always purchase the copyright of stock images from numerous websites. If you are feeling particularly skilled, you could always produce your own images.

 

 

#2 Use Headings when Blogging

Again, this is an absolute necessity. Headings are one of the ways Google and other search engines understand your content. The crawl robots will see a heading and give the heading more weight since it is likely the heading is best describing the content below it (such as it does in this article). From this, search engines will get a better idea what your content is about helping for the article to rank higher organically.

 

 

#3 Include Meta-Titles and Descriptions

Meta-titles and descriptions are ways of over-riding the title and description that appears for your article and website in search engine results. For example, you could be blogging about ‘How I managed to fix my car’ and have that as the title on your website. Automatically, this is also the meta-title for search engines to use, which is a bad idea since it has poor SEO. Therefore, you could change the meta-title to ‘How to fix a Ford Fiesta Mk2’s Engine’ to give your article some better SEO.

 

 

#4 500 Words Minimum

There was a time when blogging tended to hover around the 300 word mark, for an article, since a lot of bloggers found this was enough to provide the necessary SEO for the article and website.

However, there is not much you can talk about within 300 words and Google has seemingly clocked onto this. In general, the longer the article, the more indepth the article will go and the better it is for being indexed by Google. If you want a minimum word limit for good SEO, I would stick it roughly at 500 words, although I would almost certainly double that value to provide better SEO, like I do for PoemAnalysis.com where most articles are over 1,000+.

Without doubt, the Nintendo Switch has been a huge highlight for Nintendo this year as it surpassed all Image result for nintendo switchexpectation the company had with their latest console. Although it was released earlier in the year, it has only been till around August/September 2017 that the Switch has become readily available, in stock, at most stores.

Already, we have made clear of some of the main pros and cons associated to the Nintendo Switch after using it for more than a month. As much as the article went into some of the cons of the Nintendo Switch, it did not really bring to light all of the problems: especially since it was only one month into using the Switch. With this, here are the main problems the Nintendo Switch faces.

 

 

#1 It’s Expensive

Although the Switch is the only console that can be played on the big screen as well as portable, it is still very expensive when compared to what the competition is bringing. For example, for a similar, if not cheaper, price, you could have a PS4, Xbox One or even the next-gen PS4 Pro and next-gen Xbox. These consoles are pushing the graphics to the limit and come with a whole range of games available to download and purchase on a larger hard drive. When you compare consoles buck for buck, you have to question how much are you willing to pay for a portable games console?

 

 

#2 Lack of a Future

Unfortunately, the Switch looks to have a bleak future.

Already, Call of Duty have stated they will not make a game for the Switch, simply because the console cannot handle the high graphics power Call of Duty requires. The only game that has made it onto the switch that is big, as a third party, is Fifa 18. However, with this, the graphics have evidently been reduced significantly to get the game onto the Switch.

The problem is that there is no scope for a good future for the Switch, especially if third parties feel the console cannot handle the graphics power the games require. On top of this, you have the likes of Xbox and Sony with virtual reality headsets for their games, which is something the Switch will never be able to do.

 

 

#3 Storage

Yes, you can purchase the actual games etc. However, if you want to download the game right onto the Switch, you might get stuck after one or two downloads.

The Nintendo Switch comes with 32GB SSD, which is rather small when you consider games, such as Fifa 18, take up 15GB straight away. Therefore, you are likely going to have to buy a micro-SD card slot, adding to the cost and frustration of such a low amount of storage for, what is supposed to be, a living room console.

There are millions upon millions of successful websites out there that, strangely enough, all have, at Image result for Successful Websiteleast, have certain things in common. Sounds crazy, but every single successful website will tend to have ten elements in common because these are fundamental elements that makes a website a success. For those looking to start and build websites, making sure you tick of this list will be the first steps to pointing your website in the direction. Therefore, without further ado, here are seven elements to every successful website.

  1. A short catchy domain name – The domain name is extremely important to both the awareness of your brand and for SEO purposes too. If you can get one with a keyword in it, then you are onto a SEO winner. Else, it is a good idea to try and keep your brand name as short as possible.
  2. Niche/high quality content – When you create a website you need to look at what your competition, if any, are doing already. Copying categories and doing something that has already been done will not help your website become successful. You need to make sure your website offers something new to the internet.
  3. A great About page – It is crucial to always have an About page on your website since web users are very nosy and like to know the back stories of websites that they land onto. Without an About page, the connection between yourself and the web user breaks down, reducing confidence in the web user towards your website. Remember you have nothing to hide!
  4. A great website theme – Every great website will have a great website theme, that enables web users to flow through the website intuitively and easily. With most websites that are created, they will have purchased a theme, such as a WordPress theme. However, if you really want to push the boat, you can always hire someone to design your own unique theme, which, of course, will be a bit more expensive.
  5. Fast loading – The best websites will always load below the average loading speed of the internet. The quicker a website loads, the longer websites will naturally stay on the website. This will depend on the hosting platform you have and what bandwidth you have from and to your host servers.
  6. A great navigation menu – The point of a navigation menu is to make sure the web user can access any part of your website just from the navigation menu. With this, the ones that tend to work best are those with hover actions on top of them, to expand the options available to the web user.
  7. Responsive – With websites now being viewed by a range of different internet-enabled devices, the most successful websites prepare for this by having responsive websites, that change and adapt the theme and design to suit the screen size the web user is viewing the website on.

Last week was quite a big week for Apple as they celebrated ten years of iPhones with the launch of threeImage result for iphone 8 models: the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X. The iPhone X is Apple’s best ever smartphone to date, with some quite interesting new technology and looks to go with it. However, is it worth waiting for the iPhone X in November or is all the hassle surrounding it, well, not worth it? The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are very good smartphones still. With this, here are four reasons to buy the iPhone 8 over the iPhone X.

 

 

Same Internals

The iPhone 8 has exactly the same internals as the iPhone X, with the new A11 Bionic chip and M11 motion coprocessor. The only different between the two is how the smartphones uses the internals (the iPhone X uses the internals for features such as Face ID, which the iPhone 8 does not have).

Saying this, the new iPhone X has a higher resolution screen than the iPhone 8. Therefore, the graphics performance of the iPhone 8 is likely to be that bit better than the iPhone X, with smooth animations, if ever either phone lags.

 

 

Touch ID

As much as Face ID has been made to appear as better in every way as opposed to Touch ID, there are still a lot of people that are not convinced by Apple’s new technology – some have even said that Apple have implemented Face ID onto the iPhone X simply because Touch ID could not be integrated into the screen as was planned.

Face ID still has some major concerns over Touch ID such as:

  • Face ID can only work if the front sensors can see your face, unlike Touch ID.
  • Face ID can only work if your face is not covered, unlike Touch ID.
  • Face ID requires the web user to swipe up on the screen, which could be a little more tedious and longer to do over time than clicking the home button.

 

iPhone 8 comes with Fast/Wireless Charging

Just like the iPhone X, the iPhone 8 comes both with faster charging through the lightning cable as well as the ability to wirelessly charge. This makes the iPhone 8 the first readily available iPhone that has come with wireless charging…ever.

 

Cost

The iPhone 8 will cost $700, 8 Plus $800 and the iPhone X $1,000.

With this, people will be asking themselves what exactly they get more with the iPhone X that warrants paying an extra $300 as opposed to the iPhone 8. Yes, the screen is bezel-less and there is Face ID. But, apart from that, the smartphones are near enough identical, with the same internals, near-enough the same rear cameras, same front camera and same operating system.

It is an interesting question, which will be answered differently – most people that will buy the iPhone X will be those that are die-hard Apple fans, those who want the best of the best and those who want to make a statement from a smartphone, which like it is becoming a thing…

As a website owner, and even as a standard web user, understanding the error code that appears for a Image result for httpwebpage is useful to know and will help you understand whether 1) you can view that page in future and 2) how it needs to be fixed, if you are the owner of the website. There are a lot of errors that could appear. Therefore, without further ado, here is the complete list, in numerical order.

  1. HTTP 200 – This is code for when a request is sent and the content is transmitted back from the server. It is a successful code to have that generally won’t ever be shown in web browsers (since it is only the errors that web browsers feel the need to show).
  2. HTTP 404 – The 404 error is probably the most notorious error to appear on the internet and is known for being the ‘not found’ error. With a 404 error, the connection from the web browser to the website server was successful. However, the page that was being requested from the server is simply not there, hence the ‘not found’ status for the 404 error.
  3. HTTP 500 – A 500 error occurs when the web browser of the web user sends a valid request to a website’s server. However, the website’s server was unable to process the request, either due to being out of memory, server overload or having some sort of other internal problem.
  4. HTTP 503 – A 503 error is a similar error to the 500 error, which appears when the server cannot process the request from the web user (client). However, the reason for not being able to process the request is a little different, since 503s are used to indicate to the website owner of expected failures, such reaching a maximum amount of server usage that has internally been set by the website owner. For this reason, 500 errors are far more common than 503 errors.
  5. HTTP 301. A 301 does not directly appear in a web browser, since it is a redirection, known as a HTTP redirect. Upon landing onto a certain URL, the URL is redirected to a different URL which contains the permanently moved content.
  6. HTTP 302. A 302 is exactly the same as a 301 except that it is only used for temporary redirect of addresses rather than permanent. 302s are mainly used for website maintenance for this reason.
  7. HTTP 400 – A 400, known as a ‘Bad Request’, is when the server sends the content to the web user’s web browser. However, due to an error in receiving data from the server or a technical glitch involving the web user’s browser or internet connection, the data sent is corrupted and cannot be shown.
  8. HTTP 401 – A 401 error is when the content on the server cannot be accessed, because of the website owner having revoked privileges to the public from seeing such content.
  9. HTTP 100 – A 100 request is used to specifically send large requests from the server. By sending a 100 first, the server prepares for a large follow-up request. This takes advantage of optimizing the bandwidth of data to and from the server.
  10. HTTP 204 – A 204 will appear when there is no content with the request (so that the only information sent from the server is the header information of the website).
  11. HTTP 502 – A 502 is an network issue between the web user’s device and the server. This is generally due to errors from a network firewall or other security programs which can restrict internet/data flow.

It is crazy to think that ten years ago, Steve Jobs was standing for the first time in front of an anxiousImage result for iphone x crowd to release the very first iPhone. Not only did the first phone completely re-invent the smartphone, it also changed the way we have used smartphones for the last ten years.

To mark the tenth anniversary of the very first iPhone, Apple released a major upgrade to the iPhone, marked the iPhone X (where ‘X’ is ’10’ in Roman). Here is everything you need to know about the iPhone X and whether it is worth getting or not.

  • Large bezel-less OLED screen – It was surprising to say just how accurately we predicted the features of the next iPhone, a few months ago. The iPhone X features a large 5.8″ OLED screen with a lack of bezels around the side of it. The only part of the front of the phone that does not have screen is the notch at the top, which houses all of the sensors for advanced facial recognition.
  • Advanced facial recognition (Face ID) – Using the numerous sensors that are housed at the top of the front of the smartphone, Apple has replaced Touch ID with Face ID (yes, there is now no fingerprint sensor). Apple claims that it improves security and is lightning fast, both in light and dark scenarios.
  • Glass, front and back – The iPhone X features glass, both on the front and back. As well as this, it is still waterproof and dust proof like the predecessor iPhone 7.
  • Wireless charging – The new iPhone is capable of wireless charging with Apple’s new AirPower. There has been no information as to how quickly the wireless charger works, though.
  • New cameras – There is a new upgraded 12 megapixel camera on the back, whilst the telephoto lens also now has OIS.
  • Faster and better specs – The internals of the iPhone X have been upgraded as to the iPhone 7, with improved CPU and GPU performance.

 

Analysis: iPhone X worth buying?

This is probably the biggest upgrade Apple has made to the iPhone since it was created ten years ago.

The new upgrades certainly make the phone much more appealing. Having zero bezels (except for the notch at the top) as well as the latest tech inside and out makes this phone very appealing to many hardcore fans of Apple.

However, the iPhone X is, by no means perfect. Some people will not like the idea of Face ID, especially if, to unlock the phone, you have to be in sight of the front cameras every time.

There have been talks that Apple was trying to integrate a fingerprint sensor into the front screen, but lacked the time or technology to do so. Therefore, is this just an intermediate step to the next revolutionary technology for security? Possibly, considering the whole line up of devices Apple sells, even from MacBooks, have fingerprint sensors.

At $999, it is also extremely expensive, even to the likes of the Samsung S8. Therefore, when compared like this from a price perspective, is the iPhone X really worth the extra hundreds of dollars? We will have to wait and see. But, just from the release of information about it, it certainly does not seem to be…
