Microsoft Lumia 950

Nokia, a once mobile phone giant has now raised the white flag and was bought by the operating system tycoon, Microsoft. From here on out, every phone that Nokia creates will be rebranded to Microsoft, which I think is pretty okay considering the latter’s name and reputation.

Since then, Microsoft has been releasing new Lumia phones that sport the Windows 10 mobile operating system. It is a newcomer when it comes to mobile phone operating systems but it is no slouch when it comes to the desktop operating environment.

Today, we are going to talk about the Microsoft Lumia 950. This phone is said to be in the midrange and it does sport some new features that will probably entice a lot of people. But, Lumia phones as of late do not enjoy much success in terms of sales. Does the Microsoft Lumia 950 have what it takes to put the Lumia line back on the map? We will find out in this article.

The build construction of the Microsoft Lumia 950 is sturdy enough. This mobile phone is constructed with a polycarbonate plastic and the display is protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The front side of the phone is glossy, but thankfully, the back panel is not slippery at all thanks to the matte finish.

At the back of the phone lies the Microsoft logo as well as the speakers, LED flash, and a slightly protruding rear camera.

I am quite surprised of this phone’s display. The Microsoft Lumia 950 is fitted with a 5.-inch screen with a resolution of 2560×1440 and it packs a whopping pixel density of 564ppi.

Even though the Microsoft Lumia 950 has a quad-HD resolution screen and a huge pixel count, this phone’s brightness levels cannot match that of Samsung’s and Apple’s. Still, using this as a media device is a good thing, though you have to make sure you’re indoors as quality may suffer when you’re outside.

The Microsoft Lumia 950 comes with the Windows 10 operating system. Now, Windows phones are not new, in fact, there are a lot of them out there that didn’t make it successful (which is why Nokia had a bad share of the mobile phone market).

Windows 10 aims to provide a different user experience in that it is highly-revamped now and it is more fluid than ever before.

But, since this mobile phone operating system is still relatively new, people might not get accustomed to it. I am quite positive, though, that the Windows 10 platform will be as successful as the iOS or Android.

The performance of the Microsoft Lumia 950 is pretty good. It comes with the 64-bit Qualcomm six-core processor in the form of the Snapdragon 808 and the Adreno 418 GPU. The processor is clocked at 1.82GHz and 1.44GHz.

As for the phone’s camera, the Microsoft Lumia 950 comes with a 20-megapixel PureView Camera with an aperture of f/1.9 and the optical image stabilization technology and a triple LED flash.

The camera is very good and it even rivals that of the iPhone 6S. The front camera is quite average so there really is nothing more left to say.

The Microsoft Lumia 950 has 4G LTE connectivity. If you live in the United States or Canada, you can get a mobile phone signal booster to help improve the Lumia 950’s mobile phone signal reception.

The Microsoft Lumia 950 aims to provide a better Windows mobile phone experience. Hopefully, with this phone, the Lumia line gets back to the top.

5 Habits of Successfully Fit People

During my quest to have a fit body, I’ve read countless self-help books. I read them because I want to uncover the psychological working of highly successful people.

One of the books I’ve read is Stephen Covey’s iconic book called the “7 Habits of Highly Successful People”. This book outlines habits that successful people have.

In this article, I will somehow correlate some of the principles I’ve found in the book and relate it to fitness.

I’ve found that these principles will help people who are overweight and wants to be fit and for just about any person who wants to be fit all together.

Without further ado, here are the 5 habits of successfully fit people:

  1. Be Proactive. This I think should be the centerpiece of the article. Most people just react and not act. They react negatively because their bodies have become so fat, yet they do not do something about it. If this sounds like you, you have to stop negatively reacting to your overweight issue and start doing things that can better yourself, in this case, lose weight. Being proactive is a habit that you must have in order to be successful not only in fitness but also in real life.
  2. Envisioning the End Goal. Another habit of successfully fit people is having a vision of their end goal. If you want to have a fit body or if you want to have a bodybuilder’s body like Arnold Schwarzenegger’s, envision that body and make that as your end goal. By doing so, your mind will then focus on the things that you should do in order to achieve it.
  3. Prioritize the most Important Things. We live in a world where there are a lot of things that vie for our attention. Work, Kids, Family, you name it, there is always something that needs your attention. But, if you want to be fit, you need to learn how to prioritize. I know that work and family should be prioritized, but if you just want to watch a certain TV show, is that more important than your health?
  4. Ditch the Win/Lose mentality. The Win/Lose mentality is glorified in today’s world. If you’re in a competitive sport, for example, a person dons a win/lose mindset because that is just the nature of it. But, when you’re trying to be fit, you should not have this mindset at all. Certain win/lose situations like not being able to reach your desired weight at a certain period of time, that is a loss but that shouldn’t be something you should be preoccupied about. Instead, think of it as a win/win in a sense that although you did not reach your desired weight goal, you still lost weight. Think of your road to fitness as a win/win and not a win/lose scenario.
  5. Be Consistent. And to close this article off, you need to have a habit of consistency. Fitness, for me and many others, is a way of life. If you’re not consistent, you will fall into a trap of regaining your lost weight. Be consistent and I promise you, you will get continuous positive results.

If you’re going to lose weight or just be fit in general, be sure to slowly practice these 5 habits of successfully fit people.

Ninja Gaiden 2 Game for the NES

The Nintendo Entertainment System, or NES for short, is home to a lot of side-scrolling platform games. Most, if not all of them, receive critical acclaim from gamers.

In today’s article, we are going to be talking about the Ninja Gaiden 2 Game for the NES. This game is a successor to the original Ninja Gaiden and it just improves the game’s elements laid out by its predecessor.

The game is centered on Ryu Hayabusa. Ryu is a ninja-for-hire in that he will do good things in exchange for some money. Ryu was hired by Robert T. Sturgeon to take out Ashtar, the first game’s evil lord.

In order to lure Ryu into his own demise, Ashtar kidnapped Irene Lew, a colleague of Robert. Since Ryu was hired by Robert, he went on to rescue Irene. Of course, with his old-fashioned evil ways, Ashtar had a few tricks up his sleeve.

Irene was located on top of a mountain. Upon reaching that point, Ryu and Ashtar fought each other. But, due to Ashtar’s cunning tactics, Ryu was wounded and Ashtar took Irene away, again.

This time, Ashtar instructed Ryu that he (along with Irene) will be waiting in the underworld. Robert researched everything about Ashtar and found out that the evil lord wants to conquer both the underworld and Earth by using the legendary Dark Sword of Chaos.

In order to stop that from happening, Ryu must defeat the Dark Lord Ashtar. After successfully defeating Ashtar, he revealed that he was just a pawn and that the true mastermind is none other than Ryu’s friend, Jaquio.

After defeating Ashtar and revealing the truth, Jaquio showed himself and challenged Ryu into a death match. Should Jaquio win, he will kill Ryu, Robert, and Irene and proceed to conquer the Earth and the Underworld.

Ryu summoned all his powers and has successfully defeated Jaquio and the peace of the land ensued.

The Ninja Gaiden 2 Game for the Nintendo Entertainment System is a really good side-scrolling platformer. In fact, this game was frequently ordered because people are clamoring for it.

This Nintendo Entertainment System game is subdivided into different levels (or what the game calls “acts”). Players can move Ryu, controlling him to use his sword and throw some shurikens. The new game mechanics are also present. Ryu can now cling to walls and perform a really high jump, so use both of these abilities to your advantage.

Now, you might think that since this game was created more than 30 years ago, that it would be easy. Nope, not this one.

The Ninja Gaiden 2 Game for the Nintendo Entertainment System is a challenging platformer that is why a lot of people are playing it. Also, the storyline of the game is quite good, and at that time, it was highly-praised.

If you want to relive some classic games, the Ninja Gaiden 2 Game for the Nintendo Entertainment system should be highly considered. Trust me, you won’t regret it!

HERE Maps Android App

Are you an avid traveler? Do you like to travel to beautiful places such as Spain or the United States? If so, isn’t it hard to navigate through an unfamiliar area? Doing so, there is a high chance that you will get lost.

But, if you have an Android mobile phone, you can download a specific app that helps you navigate through popular destinations across the globe.

The HERE Maps Android App is a Map application that resemble the Google Maps, only it is much better.

Before I talk further about the HERE Maps Android App, here are its features:

  • See accurate PUBLIC TRANSIT maps and directions for around 1000 cities
  • Look inside thousands of malls and airports with 3D INDOOR MAPS
  • Stay ahead of TRAFFIC with REAL TIME INFORMATION for more than 40 countries (requires an internet connection)
  • Save maps for over 100 countries, including the US, UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Canada, Australia, and Brazil
  • NAVIGATE by foot or car with a directions list and turn-by-turn voice guidance to your destination
  • Plan ahead of time by saving favorite places on here.com

One cool feature of the HERE Maps Android App is that you can just download a specific map and you can use it offline! For example, say you’re going to Philadelphia for the first time. You just download the map of a specific city in Philadelphia.

You can pretty much use the app without an internet connection because the entire map, along with its routes, places, etc., will be saved entirely on your phone! You can use the app to help you visit a restaurant that is within the city and it will give you the most accurate route without traffic!

The HERE Maps Android App can also give you Real-time traffic reports, but this feature requires that you are connected to the Internet. The information about the traffic is fairly accurate which is pretty nice.

The HERE Maps Android App database is also quite huge as you can save maps for over 100 countries, including famous countries such as the United States of America, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Canada, Brazil, Australia, and a whole lot more.

Using this app is quite simple. If you are just going to use the map (without the real-time traffic information), just download a specific map of the city using the HERE.com database.

The map will be saved on your phone’s memory (or SD card) and you can then use it inside the app. Specify what you want (if you’re looking for a mall or a restaurant, for example) and the app will help you get there, complete with fully-automated voice instructions. You will never get lost in a new city with this amazing Map application for Android Mobile phones.

Traveling to a new city can be hard, especially if you don’t know where to go. But, that is a thing of the past thanks to the HERE Maps Android App. The HERE Maps Android App can be downloaded from the Google Play store.

NowSports Whey Protein Isolates

If you want to lose weight as fast as possible, you need to have more muscle. Muscles can boost your weight-loss mechanisms in the body, even further by burning more fat, even while you’re resting!

Now, to be able to grow some lean muscle, you need to eat protein-rich foods such as fish, eggs, and lean meat. The problem is that you have to eat copious amounts of these foods each day. That is okay in the ideal world, but in the real world, almost all of the people do not have the time nor the energy to cook these foods.

Luckily, you can have your daily dose of protein by drinking Whey Protein Isolates. Whey Protein Isolates are fast-absorbing, and they are usually taken as a post-workout drink.

Today, we’re going to take a look at a promising Whey Protein supplement that amassed a number of great reviews from satisfied customers. I am talking about the NowSports Whey Protein Isolates.

wheyTo know more about the product, let’s take a look at its product description:

NOW® Whey Protein Isolate is a high quality protein supplement that is both bioavailable and easily digested. Whey protein contains a high concentration of Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA’s), which are important for efficient muscle metabolism.* These qualities make NOW® Whey Protein Isolate an ideal supplement for active individuals. Whey protein is considered to have the highest Biological Value of any protein source – superior in essential amino acid content to beef, milk, casein or soy. Since 1968, NOW® has earned a valued reputation for producing quality products at reasonable prices. Our Quality Assurance and Quality Control teams of certified nutritionists, chemists and technicians thoroughly evaluate all products, processes, packaging and sources. Our responsiblity and pledge is to honestly and accurately label quality products that are fresh, potent and effective.

Each serving of the NowSports Whey Protein Isolates give you 0.5g of fat, 135mg of Potassium, and 25g of Protein. Of course, there are other ingredients that are inside the Whey Protein supplement, but some of them are not properly disclosed.

Still, 25g of Protein per serving is actually quite a hefty amount. The flavor is also great as well, as some users reported. Speaking of user reports, let’s see some of them and what they think about the NowSports Whey Protein Isolates:

Lilly: “Just switched to this product after using ON Gold Standard Whey – I am very pleased with it! After reading tons of reviews on it I expected the taste to be bad so I bought the 1.8 lb. tube (Dutch Chocolate) in case I didn’t like the flavour. Turned out that it is actually pretty nice – when mixed with water it doesn’t really taste like anything (faint cocoa flavour); however, mixed with milk and a spoon of PB it makes a delicious shake! As far as quality goes – I have been using other NOW supplements and I believe that the overall brand quality is supreme. They claim this is a high quality whey isolate, as natural as possible, without any unnecessary ingredients and I’d say I believe them :)”

Gregory: “I love this protein because it mixes relatively well and is so pure! This product can be mixed with a spoon though it clumps slightly. If you let it sit for about 30 seconds after initially trying to mix it and then mix it again, it smooths out. I have only had the Natural Unflavored version of this and it’s not too bad going down. There are no harsh flavors or after taste. It is just plain whey protein isolate with a little soy lecithin. This is an excellent and relatively cheap protein source.”

Most people I know opt for the Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey. But after reading these user reviews, maybe we will try the NowSports Whey Protein Isolates.

The NowSports Whey Protein Isolates is an inexpensive, but protein rich whey supplement that only costs $27 for a 2lb tub. If you’re looking for a Whey protein supplement, this supplement is quite a good choice.

What is the R4i SDHC card

Up-to-date Nintendo DS storage devices allow consumers to take advantage of the Nintendo DS hardware, beyond its original capabilities. nintendo ds Most consumers store and run homebrew (independent) games and software, in addition to game backups of retail titles, using these devices.

Also known as flash carts or flash cards, these carts fit into Slot-1 of Nintendo DS consoles. Older flash cart iterations took advantage of the console’s Slot-2 (Game Body Advance Slot), later phased out after the Nintendo DSi entered the market.

The most popular flash carts are second generation flash cart like R4i. The R4 flash cart is one of the most popular flash carts, dating back to its first generation models. The R4i, in particular, is compatible with the Nintendo DSi and DSi XL, in addition to microSDHC memory cards.

A glance at the R4i Flash Cart

The R4i is considered one of the most used flash carts for the Nintendo DSi and DSi XL. The cart is notable for its relatively easy to use hardware and software, since most users can just ‘plug and play’ the device before setting it up.

Most users only have to download and install the device’s firmware onto its included microSD memory card. The R4i firmware is available on the official R4i-SDHC website.

As mentioned, this device is inserted into Slot-1 of the Nintendo DSi and DSi XL. Although some consumers might think that the device ‘installs harmful firmware onto their game console,’ that statement is just misinformation. This device doesn’t install any harmful firmware onto the device; the R4i devices also doesn’t heighten the risk of ‘bricking’ or rendering a game console unusable.

The R4i is primarily used like a ‘microSD adapter’ for Nintendo DS game consoles. Most people use the device to access homebrew or independently produced games and software. Its popularity mostly stems from using homebrew software and running ‘backups’ of Nintendo DS software. It’s also popular for storing and playing music, since it’s not easily achieved through regular use of the game console.

The flash cart is compatible with several types of microSDHC cards, including higher capacity versions (up to 32 GB). This enables R4i owners to store and access more music, photos and other types of files, via their Nintendo DS console.

Many R4 devices, including the R4i, are available at relatively low prices. Most R4i flash carts are sold in bundles with microSD cards, allowing people to use the device right out of the box.

Verdict? The R4i flash cart is a great value for people wanting to get more ‘value’ out of their Nintendo DS devices. At prices below $20 nowadays, any avid fan of the Nintendo DS should consider getting one to make their favorite game console last much longer.

Nintendo DS and the r4 card

Wow, that sounds like an impressive title. Its funny how even things designed for fun and games can seriously impact the world of law and even morality. Games have a history of doing this. They help simulate what is possible, and their content sometimes makes people uncomfortable. Look at games like Grand Theft Auto and the backlash against people pretending to cause violence against others.

 

Another avenue where gaming comes into contention with the law and the fabric of morality in our society is not through the content of the games, but the buying and selling of the games. Central to this discussion and even help leading it is the Nintendo DS.

 

Originally released in 2004, the Nintendo DS has seen half a dozen iterations since that original date, and has over the course of a decade become the leading portable gaming device currently on the market. It is not the most graphic intensive gaming platform. In fact, it has few things that are the best in any particular field.

 

The reason for the popularity of the DS and its importance is because of how open the platform is. The Nintendo DS allows for individual software to interface with the DS. This has lead to a significant amount of interest and is the reason for the DS success. However, it has also lead to pirated games.

 

 

The Problem of Morality In Gaming

 

The R4 allows for people to install their own games onto the device, and then play them on the DS. This was seen as an amazing step in consumer satisfaction, as it allows for people to play what they want. However, this quickly turned sower. Many countries, including the UK and Japan, passed legislation regarding the sale of the R4. It seems that since a few people were using it to pirate games, no person would be allowed to use it, even for perfectly legal reasons. Now, doing something harmless became a crime.

 

 

Where does that leave us?

 

The R4 and similar Cards are not wrong or bad. It is what people decide to do with them that make them lawful or immoral. Our law regarding copyright sets the moral standard. The only difference between morality and immorality in gaming then are a set of laws that can change.

 

 

With all of this to consider, it does not make sense to ban R4 sales, because they are inherently not bad, and cause significant loss of freedoms to people who were otherwise using the product legally.
