Last time I used Nokia phone was in 2007, and after that, I was quite happy with the brands I was using. However, once again I decided to join the Nokia following bargain so I am back on Nokia now. For last one month and a half, I am using Nokia 5230. A nice phone and good to have it but I am not much satisfied. Well contradiction is there in my last statement but yes, I have to accept it is a nice phone but I am not satisfied because it is missing some certain features for which I bought it.

It is easy to use, and the touch panel works well hence it is bit slow. It has a wide screen so it’s fun to watch videos on it, its music player and radio are also cool but there is a certain feature which is annoying as any SMS dropped in while music, video of radio is on the ring tone spoiled the fun. It is something I am not much familiar with as in my last phone there was only vibration no sound in such case.

Nokia do not allow transferring Music from PC to Phone via blue tooth using pc suite. I got 2 GB memory card with it so far it is enough for me however; it can be extended up to 8 GB card. Writing SMS is not as cool as it used to be on other key oriented phone this might be the reason because I am not used to touch phones.

One thing I must mention here is its voice during the call is quite low, and sometimes it is hard to understand what other person is saying. It can be connected to any speaker using the stereo pin and one can enjoy music with louder voice.

Using internet is an interesting feature on it as being touch oriented phone its really cool to scroll and click on the desired links or pictures. The writing panel that appears while you are writing something e.g. SMS, Email, Text, Web Links, etc is quite user friendly and it changes itself to full key board from conventional keys of phone just by flipping it to the horizontal view. I have noticed that it turns into the landscape mode easily but it take time to sense when it is supposed to resume to the tower view.

FaceXs

FaceXs

Every optical scanner is a camera, this is the fact which I never realized before visiting Solo Smart tech inc. this past Friday I was lucky enough to see one of the greatest achievement and innovation by Pakistan. I am talking about FaceXs (Facial Recognition Device) a device which can handle almost every issue regarding access control.

Security is a big issue today even at schools kids have to go through scanning this the best example I could give, but security is one new thing as a few years back security was not as big issue as it is now however there is one thing which is there for a long time and that is ghost attendance at workplaces specially when it is a government institution. Many things came into the scene, RFID system, biometric scanners and many other things.

The card scanning system Also known as RFID system is something which is very famous snapping card to get access to the controlled areas just like what we have seen in old 007 movies. Are we still sure that there is no ghost attendance in practice when RFID is doing its job. Sure one can show more than one cards to mark the attendance, and there are some issues too card got stolen, one forget to carry it, and it got scratched even.

To me RFID is not a cost effective idea, generating so many cards and keep issuing them after the occurrence of any of the above issues. Every year companies have to spend big bucks every time they issue new cards. The one thing I like about FaceXs is it is one time investment and no need to issue new cards and the best thing “one can forget to carry his card but no one fill forget to bring his face with him”.

Now come to the technology of finger prints and thumb impressions, not a bad Idea but still one have to touch the machine. Imagine that the finger is soaked with cream, ghee, sweat, or any other thing and the scanning panel. I do not think that I have to say any other thing as if you have good imagination you can get idea what the scanning surface has to go through.

FarmVille

FarmVille

Well, am not found playing games easily, because I don’t play them :/, its not that am a boring person or I don’t get time, I do get time, but I don’t like games easily, I don’t fall for them so easily.

I remember I loved to play Construction, Theme Parks, Theme Hospital *LOVED IT*, Golden Axe, Paper Boy, Dave, Wolf, etc. They were the games one would love to play again and again.

As many of us know of many applications on Facebook, every other day there is a new application and people getting addicted, you start getting notifications, I got Farmville invitation too, but I didn’t joined it.

During a phone chat with my friend who plays Farmville, begged me *right, she begged me lol* to become her neighbor in Farmville, the next day I became her neighbor I started getting interested in Farmville and now am totally addicted to it.

Farmville has been made by Zynga, and on the same network *Facebook* you will find FarmTown by some other company but they launched it earlier and its bit lacking in graphics, people are getting used to Farmville, they loved FarmTown too, but Farmville looks its elder brother ;d yeah!

Farmville gives you a chance to become farmer, a virtual farmer. You have to plow land, then plant seeds, waits for them to become ready, then you harvest them…, you can plant trees, buy animals, get items for decoration, in short you simply start farming.
