Android is a mobile operating system developed by Google, based on the Linux kernel and designed primarily for touchscreen mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. Android's user interface is based on direct manipulation, using touch gestures that loosely correspond to real-world actions, such as swiping, tapping and pinching, to manipulate on-screen objects, along with a virtual keyboard for text input. In addition to touchscreen devices, variants of Android are also used on notebooks, game consoles, digital cameras, televisions, automobiles and other electronics. Applications are usually developed in Java programming language using the Android software development kit (SDK), but other development environments are also available, including Delphi, Ruby and Visual Studio (using C++).

Okay, I dropped all the SQLPorter fixing story: since the fix has been included in the official repo it doesn't make sense explain how to fix a bug which doesn't exist :)
Just a question: can I add to these articles a link to my blog?

Ransomware, the malware that locks down its victim’s files until they pay up, has always been a frustrating issue to deal with. However, a recent mobile ransomware will make the issue a little more personal… by sharing the victim’s mobile browsing history.

Modern OS from Windows 7 onwards will disable disk cache and you will not have performance gain on using a RAMDisk.

Besides, the wearing from disk read and write will not have a significant impact to your SSD.

https://www.howtogeek.com/256859/dont-waste-time-optimizing-your-ssd-windows-knows-what-its-doing/

I have changed the HDD to SSD for a number of desktop PC for more than 18 months and they are still running to top speed like Day 1.

Before I changed to SSD, I did use RAMDisk to make Windows 7 ran faster by moving all cached and temporary files to the RAMDisk and my experience shows that the article in the link above is correct.

Besides, unless you are staying with 32 bit MS Windows, you will not have spare RAM for RAMDisk and it is better to let the OS to handle memory management.

I found that on my Windows 10 64 bit machine with a 256gb boot SSD (1tb data drive HDD 7200rpm), RAMDisk made a huge difference.  I found the same on my brand new laptop (Lenovo Yoga) with SSD.  I even bought the software.

If you use the Google Now Launcher, as an aftermarket add on, have a Samsung Note 5 and are worried about power consumption be wary of using the ultra power saving mode. Here is what happened to me when I made the mistake of trying this out...

Ultra-power saving mode is developed by SAMSUNG and SAMSUNG do not expect that you will prefer to use Google Now Launcher instead of TouchWiz launcher.

I have tried to use Google Now Launcher but its support on Chinese is poor and I dropped it.

The only problem of Ultra-power saving mode is that it will disable all sync for email accounts after you exit Ultra-power saving mode and you need to manually re-able the sync of all email accounts,

Hmmm... I have Marshmallow on my S5 and the Now launcher isn't standard (which I take to mean is included by default).
Here's what my home screen looks like.

By the way, you should try to embed the comparison shot in the article, as the title totally obscures it when viewed on handheld devices. (Going to check it on my laptop, next.)

I appreciate the effort that goes into making an article, especially in English when that is not your first language.

I don't think that "there are billions of billions users using android OS worldwide" (bold added by me for emphasis).
There aren't that many people in the world.  :)
The last statement I saw (claiming it came from a Google head) said that there are now one billion Android users.

Bookmarks


If you are a regular user of “Chrome” and you have setup your Google account on your device, all your bookmarks are automatically synchronized across all devices that have signed in to the same account in Google Chrome.

The sign-in process is different if you are using Google Chrome on Windows. You need to explicitly sign in to the Chrome Browser to sync your bookmarks, history and other stuff. In Google Chrome, Click Menu / Settings. See image.

Click sign in to Chrome in the resulting Menu.

Introduction


Everyone is using a smartphone these days. Contacts, messages, applications, documents, bookmarks, pictures, videos and other stuff which you created and are present only on your device come under the umbrella called “Personal Data”.

There will come a day when you need to transfer personal data from your device to other places. It could be due to either of the following reasons –

  • You got a new phone and want to transfer all your data to the new phone.
  • Your old phone is broken and you need to give it to the authorised Company’s Service Centre to fix it. The repair shop will never take responsibility for loss of personal data.
  • Your phone has started to act sluggish and a factory reset could be one of the reasons to get it speedy again.
  • For safekeeping, just in case you lose your phone.
  • You are flashing a custom Rom and you need a backup of your personal data to restore it to your new Rom. However, users installing custom Roms may not find this guide that helpful as they may already be familiar with other powerful methods of backing up which are outside the scope of this article.
