A smartphone or smart phone is a mobile phone with an advanced mobile operating system that combines features of a personal computer operating system with other features useful for mobile or handheld use. They typically combine the features of a cell phone with those of other popular mobile devices, such as personal digital assistant (PDA), media player and GPS navigation unit. Most smartphones can access the Internet, have a touchscreen user interface, can run third-party apps, music players and are camera phones. Most Smartphones produced from 2012 onwards also have high-speed mobile broadband 4G LTE internet, motion sensors, and mobile payment mechanisms.

iOS 12.1.2. This AM when I attempted to attach a YouTube link to a message via the iMessage app--nothing happened. That is, YouTube wouldn't load in messages, though I can open it via the "basic" screen icon, and download links from vids I open there into messages.

Yes, I closed and reopend the Messages app. Yes, I rebooted the phone. Yes, all other message apps work.

Thoughts?

Thanks

Why Diversity in Tech Matters

Kesha Williams, certified professional and software developer, explores the imbalance of diversity in the world of technology -- especially when it comes to hiring women. She showcases ways she's making a difference through the Colors of STEM program.

With help from Zakaria Acharki and leakim971, I have added touch events to my drawing routine at: www.barnwellmd.com/PainDiagram/Testdrawing.html (modified so it doesn't send data to me).

However, sometimes when drawing on a touch screen, the line drawn is not under the finger. For example:drawing problem image.
I have tested the routine on a: Pixel Phone, Iphone, Samsung tablet, Microsoft Surface Book. The routine always draws at the wrong place using the Pixel Phone. The others frequently (not always) draws at the wrong place when zoomed in to and scrolled down on the page. Zooming and scrolling is disabled on the image itself but you can zoom and scroll off the image.

I believe this is the code causing the problem:
if( ev.targetTouches ) {
    var rect = ev.target.getBoundingClientRect();

    ev._x = ev.targetTouches[0].pageX - rect.left;
    ev._y = ev.targetTouches[0].pageY - rect.top;
}

Open in new window

I tried changing:
var rect = ev.target.getBoundingClientRect();

Open in new window

to:
var rect = canvas.getBoundingClientRect();

Open in new window

where canvas is defined as:
canvas = document.getElementById('imageView');

Open in new window

But that did not work.

I will appreciate and try any suggestion even if your not sure if it will work.

Thanks!

Here is all the JavaScript code for the routine:
var imageData, context, pixels;

function clearCanvas()
{
	context.putImageData(imageData, 0, 0);
}

function checkFields()
{
	var themessage = "Please complete the following

Hi

I use Twitter, Telegram & RSS feeds to follow new security treats. I also have many groups and users I follow in LinkedIn.

The problem and question:
Each time I start the LinkedIn app all contributions are unsorted. As an example, I have posts that came 1h before, then 6 days ago and the last 2h ago. Why is this so? With Twitter, Telegram, RSS feeds all are sorted as they were posted. The other annoying thing is that when I click the home button it jumps to the uppermost post. Then I must go down to the last post I red. If I still remember it ... :-)

How are you following LinkedIn contributions? Do you use another app?

Thanks for helping me

Hi,

I have a Samsung Note 9 phone.

My contacts are located in two different places; sim card and Gmail account.

There are different contacts in both of these places but would like all imported to Note 9 phone.

Also, there are some contacts which are the same in both places.

Is there a way of syncing together contacts in Gmail with contacts on this phone, where contacts were imported from sim card, without having duplication of contacts?

Thanks,
Robbie

My iPhone Xs is running iOS 12.1.

How do I remove email addresses that pop up when I am typing in the first few characters of an email address within the To: or BCC: field within an email on my iPhone?

There are certain email addresses that always appear within the email address auto suggestion field that I no longer use that I need to make sure are removed.

What is the easiest way of doing this?

Hi Team !

I just wanted to ask if there is a way to back up SMS ,call logs and contacts from your android smart phone in increments (like dropbox) ?

Is there a way to retrieve SMS , call logs and  contacts if ever you lose the phone  ?

Is there a way to trace the device if it is offline  ? If not what would be the best options as far a tracking the  device and remotely wiping off the data ?

New Samsung phone ,and I don't want to go through it again......

Hi Experts

Could you point a way to automatically transfer a telephone contact list from a smartphone to another ?

The last time I shop a new smartphone someone transfered it by via bluetooth, I guess.

The new smartphone is using Android 8.

Thanks in advance!

Question about how SSL Certificates work on a mobile phone app.

We are setting up a 2-factor authentication for our remote access.  The process involves enrolling your smartphone with your user account for remote access.  Very much like how Duo Mobile works ( https://duo.com ); but, we cannot add our smartphones because the when scanning the QR code to enroll the smartphone an error comes up stating that the Smartphone App does not trust the certificate.

We have a Certificate a respected Certificate Authority (THAWTE) on our Authentication server.  The consultant informed me that we have 2 options.

1.  Change the certificate to another CA on the server.
        a.  He said GoDaddy or Verisign will work for sure(its working in his test lab).
        b.  Try to get a refund on the THAWTE certificate that we purchased.


2.  Wait for the certificate trust anchors to get updated by the Application.
        a.  But who knows when that will happen.

The consultant stated that if he browses to the web url that the QR code is referencing (for example, https://whatever.com) there is no certificate error prompt and I verified that I do not see any certificate errors either(from a browser).

My manager thinks that the consultant should include the certificate in the authentication chain on the new Authentication server; but, I am not sure how that part actually works.  

I also discovered another web article describing the same problem with apps vs browsers: …

Hi Android Experts,

I'm after an app/program that will allow me to organize all the icons on my Samsung Galaxy S9+ 256GB 4GX phone using my computer.

I recall being able to do this with my iPhones because iTunes displayed the phone configuration on screen and I could drag and drop apps and icons around on my computer screen while my phone was connected, and then the iPhone would update itself with the changes I'd made. I found this highly helpful and an easy way to organize my icons.

I have a LOT of icons and apps installed on my Android phone and organizing them the way I like in a native way on the phone I find to be a pain, so I'd like something that will allow me to do it the way iTunes let me do it with my iPhones.

Ie: Display my Phone screen configuration on my Windows 10 computer screen and allow me to organize my icons using my computer and then have my Android Phone update itself to the configurations that I'd selected on my computer screen. I'm happy to pay for a program to allow me to do this, so it doesn't have to be free.

I've looked through Google Play Store and see a lot of App Organizers, but they all seem to be just apps that are only installed on the Android phone, rather than allow me to connect the phone to the computer and do my organizing there.

Ie: Connect my phone to the computer so I can use my computer to update the icon positions on my phone instead.

Either this isn't available, or perhaps I'm using the wrong search terms on …

I would like to know the SUREST method to backup all my contacts on my phone to my PC . I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 4. I have the Google back up checked however the last time I formatted my phone I lost quite a few contacts for some reason. Luckily I was able to find the missing ones from Google Text messages app and DRUPE{ it's a third party app which cost me $12.00 ?} it had saved my contacts. I am a bit paranoid. I want to reformat my phone again but I do not want to risk losing any contacts information. The more back up the better. So if some one can give a couple of options to back up hopefully everything on my phone specifically the CONTACTS that would be great.

Thank you.

I have a UIPageViewController which I am using for onboarding/walthrough screens but at the moment they only work with swipes. I added a button but I can't actually connect it and create an IBAction. I was able to programatically create a button that could print to console but I don't know how to get it to move the screens like swiping does.

class PageViewController: UIPageViewController, UIPageViewControllerDelegate, UIPageViewControllerDataSource {
    
    
    
    var pageControl = UIPageControl()
    
    // MARK: UIPageViewControllerDataSource
    
    
    
    lazy var orderedViewControllers: [UIViewController] = {
        return [self.newVc(viewController: "sbBlue"),
                self.newVc(viewController: "sbRed")]
    }()
    
    override func viewDidLoad() {
        super.viewDidLoad()
        self.dataSource = self
        self.delegate = self
        
        
        
        // This sets up the first view that will show up on our page control
        if let firstViewController = orderedViewControllers.first {
            setViewControllers([firstViewController],
                               direction: .forward,
                               animated: true,
                               completion: nil)
        }
        
        configurePageControl()
        
        // Do any additional setup after loading the view.
    }
    
    func configurePageControl() {

Hi Experts,

I recently consolidated a number of contacts that were duplicated in my contacts list on my Android S9+ mobile phone.

Now I've noticed that a lot of the consolidated contacts have the wrong avatar of the persons face, in many cases, the avatar on the contact is of a totally different person than who the contact in my phone really is.

Can anyone explain the best way to fix this so that the pictures on the contacts are correct? Please include step by step instructions if possible as I'm relatively new to Android phones, being an Iphone user for many years.

Many thanks for any help.

Regards, Andrew
