Just create profiles and select what they can have access to.  Get started, pull down your notification shade and tap on your profile picture in the top-right corner. There’s a Guest profile there by default, which is great if you’re passing your phone to someone and you want to make sure they don’t stumble on anything they shouldn’t.

Almost every smartphone user is complaining their battery gets drained very quickly.

You can check out where all that juice is going in Settings > Battery, but thankfully, you also have a Battery saver option now.

On the Battery screen, simply tap the three vertical dots in the top right and then choose Battery saver and toggle it on.

You can set it to automatically turn on at 5 or 15 percent if you want. It kills unnecessary vibrations, limits performance, and stops background data.

Mend your HP Laptop Batteries wisely

HP Laptop batteries are just like human beings they eventually die in the end. But if you handle with care it can last longer. These days Laptop has become integral part of our lifestyle. I start my office work on the go. I had a bad experience of my battery being not lasting more than 3 hrs at a stretch.

Having lesson learned, I will share my experience of long lasting battery life that would be helpful to you in future. I am using my laptop since my college days, so it’s been for 4 years, working smoothly. The Lithium-ion battery as used in most laptops has 1.5-2 years useful life. The Lithium technology is made up of many smaller cells. These are charged at one time until the battery reaches full capacity.

There is usually common issue faced by everyone regarding the batteries are

  1. My Battery charge never reaches 100 %
  2. My battery becomes very hot
  3. My battery lasts just 10 mins, it doesn’t last as long as it used to

I would suggest use Power management wisely, it’s an effective tool that can save your laptop battery and increase the battery life.

1.)   Optimize Power options (Power Saver) can help you maximize battery performance and conserve energy.

2.)   If you are using continuously, the battery will die very soon. Laptops have option to dim your screen so that you can squeeze out some extra juice out of the battery.

3.)   Remove external devices if they are plugged in and not in use as most of them time USB devices like pen drive, mouse etc. and Wifi.If you forget to remove it and it will totally drain down your battery to zero. Also, avoid charging other devices like mobiles, iPod from your laptop, it wipes out the battery too.

4.)   Once I forgot my DVD in the drive. Make sure you don’t keep one in the drive as it consumes power. They spin every time you restart your PC and it takes power even if you are not using it.

5.)   When you are not using your laptop, keep it on hibernate. It will save a lot of power.

I usually stick to above power management tricks that will give my battery life a breather to survive and I get my work done pretty fast. I would like to know your experience as well. Share them with me in my comments section.

Digitalization is the key to transformation

Digitalization is the Key

#DigitalIndia Vision is road map to bring greater efficiency to governance. Digital transformation is nothing but the use of technology to radically improve performance.Successful digital transformation comes from envisioning new ways that digital technology improves performance and customer satisfaction.

E-governance will help us to – Bridge the digital divide :Citizen access to government information/services must increased rather than further divide the digital divide.

–Provide information regarding local resource and demographic information,

–To Enable a platform for interaction between citizens and govt

–Creation of Jobs i.e; generate new opportunities for India’s youth

Through E-governance, will help us to reduce corruption. Its effective and economical way to reach the masses.More importantly it would penetrate among  the youth.The main objective of E-governance is to

–Provide friendly and efficient interface between government and citizens

–Provide transparency in operations

–Provide timely and efficient delivery of services

–Improve quality of government services

The success of E-governance will depend on ease of accessibility of services to the citizens, it should be done on local level ,accountability to be increased, procedure to simple , time savings,last but not the least affordable service. 45% of e-governance projects in developing regions are complete failure; 50% are partial failures; only 15% are completely successful. Govt should spend % of GDP in E-governance It should be reassessed time to time.It depends on what we will be and what we want to be in future.New technology will come up and need to adapt it keeping up with the.The faster you adopt the technology you will reap the benefit of E-governance also make it more of value added services to the citizens.

I  attended the workshop held by Dell. Dell partnered with INKtalks .Dell India, India’s leading end-to-end technology solutions provider announces the launch of their ‘Dell Campassadors’ program and a strategic partnership with INKtalks, an organization which aims to inspire youth, particularly in emerging economies. The association was born out of Dell’s dedicated focus towards the college student community, who not only exhibits a dynamic use of personal technology, but is also advocates for the adoption of new technologies. With this partnership, Dell aims to engage college students through campus ambassadors in a year-long conversation with Dell & INKtalks to foster a strong sense of social orientation and bring student communities together to share knowledge and ideas with peers and work on collaborative projects, all to prepare them for real life challenges.

The session was “how to create you brand in social media”. It was much awaited, enthralling and engrossing workshop.

Lakshmi Pratury, Host and Curator, INKtalks said, “INKtalks is about opening up the imagination of the youth through stories and equip them to create an impact in the world around them.  We are thrilled to partner with Dell to take our ideas to the student community at large and get them involved in activities throughout the year.  We look forward to engaging with Dell Campassadors who will champion the interaction with their peers, thousands of students in campuses around the country, and catalyze their exposure to INKtalks to help them realizing their imagination into an impact to the society. When we combine the technology outreach of Dell with the projects pioneered by INK, we will have a youth community that can use the technology to make a difference in the communities that they inhabit.”
