Galaxy Note8 undergoes scratch, burn, and bend test

Galaxy Note 8

Now that Samsung's Galaxy Note8 is starting to ship to eager customers who've pre-ordered it, it's time for the JerryRigEverything YouTube channel to give us the results of its traditional scratch, burn and bend test. The Note8 is the latest device to fall victim to this torture test, and the full ordeal is embedded below for your viewing pleasure.


In case you can't watch that, here's a short summary. The Note8 comes off as sturdy. The glass scratches at exactly the hardness level you'd expect it to, and the handset is impossible to bend when normal levels of force are applied.

The screen flame test does result in permanent damage after around ten seconds (since unlike LCDs the AMOLED panel doesn't recover), and the fingerprint scanner can be scratched. It does however still work even after that. Since the frame is metal, it means it can be scraped.

5 Ways To Enjoy Long Flights With Smartphones

Here are five ways your most dependable gadget – the smartphone –can help you kill time, even if you are not connected to Wi-Fi while on a long flight.

5 Ways TO Enjoy Long Flights With Smartphones

INSTALL AN E-READER APP

Surviving a long-haul flight using smartphone is all about preparation; so you need to make sure you are all set in advance.
Bookworms should make use of the many free e-reader apps out there – from Kindle to Kobo – that can give you access to as much literature as you want without the hassle of an extra device (or a suitable full of paperbacks).
These apps of course give you access to e-books you can buy but there are also plenty out-of-copyright classics available to download for your flight: The Great Gatsby, 1984, Les Miserables (watch out, it’s long) and Pride and Prejudice, to name just four. Whether or not you own an actual physical e-reader, you can while away some time reading.

CACHE YOUR MEDIA FOR OFFLINE USE

5 Ways TO Enjoy Long Flights With Smartphones

Your music tracks and movies aren’t much use if they’re stuck up in the virtual cloud while you’re flying through the actual clouds: so make sure you’ve got plenty of playlists and content cached ahead of time. Most of the streaming music apps let you do this, including Spotify and Radio.
Television shows and films are trickier: Netflix has no offline mode but Amazon Video now does. If you’ve bought content from iTunes or from Google Play, then you can have the spare capacity on your handset (in the case of Google, you can choose the download quality).

QUEUE UP YOUR READ-IT-LATER APPS

If you are not tempted by a proper e-book, why not catch up on some of your online reading? Any decent read-it-later app worth its salt (such as Instapaper and Pocket) will let you cache articles for offline reading: so it’s a great opportunity to finally make your way through What is Code?
If you know you’ve got a long flight coming up, then you might want to hunt through your RSS reader or Twitter favorites to find all of these articles you’ve never had chance to get around to reading, or have a scout around for some new long reads that look interesting.

THINK BEYOND YOUR USUAL MUSIC LIBRARY

The best way to speed up time while you’re at 30,000 feet is to forget you’re in an airplane and transport yourself somewhere else using nothing but the power of mind. Rather than listening to music, try drifting away with some ambient sound – Nosili has an offline mode, for example. There are plenty of ambient noise and meditation apps to pick from, though you should check for offline capabilities and invest in a good pair of noise cancelling headphones before you head off for the airport. Alternatively, queue up a few episodes of your favorite podcast, or a few episodes of a new one you want to try.

GET CREATIVE

Maybe being on an airplane isn’t the best way to get the creative juices flowing, but if you are the sort of person who can focus on what’s right in front of you, then working on a project you love can help you speed up the clock a little bit while you’re in the air.

Your options are wide open; install a doodling app, a minimal writing app, or a music composition app. Just make sure there’s something there to help you take your mind off the trip. And if all else fails, you could always fall back on whatever addictive game happens to be storming the app charts at the time of your long-haul flight.

Surfwella to bring free internet access to Nigerian Universities

Internet access in schools is an indispensable tool required for the learning process. This is why most schools provide internet access for their students either for free or through a subscription plan. But the quality of the internet services in these schools is either unstable or too slow for practical use. This is why many other private service providers have tried to improve this; and the latest of this bunch is Surfwella(nice name too tho).

Surfwella comes with a different approach in that their services are supposedly free (i.e no payment, subscription plan etc), but that makes me a little skeptical, I mean c’mon free internet access for Nigerian schools? Surfwella has to be paying for these services somehow. This makes me think there is some kind of catch, ads maybe? But, I may very well be wrong. As Olusola Bankole; Surfwella’s Chief Marketing officer puts it:
It’s our own form of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). It is all about empowering the students to be globally competitive, and access to free Internet is the best way to empower the budding on-coming Generation-Z.
So, let’s take him at his word and see how this scheme will pan out. Surfwella plans to start out in University of Abuja before moving to Lagos State University (LASU), College of Agric, Lafiaji, and UNILAG.

The awesome thing is that this service isn’t limited to just Nigerian Universities. According to their website, you can browse for free in Lagos if you are a registered user and happen know the location of any of their hotspots(which are not listed BTW). You can sign up for Surfwella here.
What is your take on “free” internet access in Nigerian universities? Let us know in the comments section below.

Uber introduces in-app messaging

While Uber has been around for a while and has made transportation a whole lot easier, you would agree with me that there is still room for improvement; well, it seems Uber also agrees. Have you ever been in a situation where you order an Uber and some strange number calls or texts you asking you for your location? Uber decided to fix this by introducing in-app messaging.
Uber in-app messaging demo

Before then, I believe there is a need for a little back-story. Uber makes use of an anonymizing technology to mask phone numbers when you make calls outside the app. But, unfortunately this isn’t available in emerging markets. Hence, they had to introduce in-app messaging in addition to a few other features which we’ll talk about later on,
Before those, let’s take a look at how this in-app messaging works.
How Uber in-app messaging works
The driver sends you a message or you send one first; whichever applies, then the driver can reply with a thumbs up emoji just by tapping on the screen(this makes sense because there is a huge chance the Uber driver will be behind the wheels when when the text comes in). In my opinion, this is an awesome feature; why? For a couple of reasons:
  • It eliminates the need to exchange numbers
  • The Uber driver doesn’t need to park at a location and start honking the horn for several minutes
  • They built it with the driver in mind(plus, it’s illegal to text and drive).
As I mentioned earlier, Uber has introduced a few other features in their app like: Snapchat filters, calendar integrations, using friends as destination locations amongst others. I believe Uber has other plans; they want their app to go beyond just a ride-hailing app.

Have you used this in-app messaging feature before? How was it? Let us know in the comments section below. Haven't heard of or used Uber? Download their app here.

Quick Guide to Get iMessage on Android

How to Receive iMessage on Android?


iMessage compatibility is no more an issue these days. And, that too if you want to talk to people who use the same plan as that of yours, then iMessage compatibility will never be an issue. It is very much understood that those people in your plan are either iOS users or Android users.

iMessage is a very simple service that is provided by Apple. With the help of this service, you can send texts, documents, group messages, contacts and photos. All these messages can be sent with the help of Wifi. This feature is very easy to use unless you are someone who is using an Android phone. For more information, click here.
How to get iMessage on Android?

All the Android users have been seen complaining that they do not receive iMessages on their phone. Because of this, they receive messages that are segmented and most of the time, miss out on important details. On the other hand, iOS users also keep sending messages to their Android friends and they do not get them.

As of now, there is no official way of getting messages on your phone. But, you can always get iMessage on Android
if you follow these steps.

  1. Pie Message is a very special project that can be installed by the users on their device.
  2. This project is still in its development stage and you should only install this if you are experienced enough and are also ready to take risk.
  3. This is a project that was started by GitHub user Eric Chee. If you want to install it, you will need a Mac and an Android phone. 
  4. This means that Pie Message needs an OS X client that can help in transferring messages to an Android device. Mac plays a very important role here as it is the one that helps in the transferring of the messages. 
  5. The message is sent by the Android to Mac and then Mac sends the message in the form of a notification.
  6. If Mac also detects an incoming message, that is also transferred to the Android.


HOW DOES IT WORK?

  1. After you have installed Pie Message, it works as follows.
  2. It will use an Apple script and will capture iMessages as soon as they arrive on your Mac system.
  3. After this, the Java app takes all those messages from Apple script.
  4. And then, that message is forwarded by Java app to a custom messaging application on the Android phone.
  5. The message will be displayed on the Android phone and then it will respond to those iMessages.


LIMITATIONS OF THE APPLICATION:

  1. The Mac has to stay awake always in case it wants to send the message on time.
  2. If Mac is turned off, the messages will not be received anymore.
  3. As explained above, it works by routing iMessages from Mac to Android phone.
  4. As of now, the application does not work with photos, or group messages
