Often times people will surf the internet looking for quick and easy ways to get out of debt, make extra cash, or to strike it rich. The truth is, it takes a lot of hard work and effort to turn your personal finances around. My first suggestion is always to spend less money than you make. That usually leaves you with one of two options, to either cut back on your expenses, or to earn more money! Find a side gig isn’t as difficult as most people think, it just takes dedication, persistence, and a little hard work. The key to dedication and persistence is finding something you are already passionate about then using that passion to earn some extra cash.

Several years back I found myself on several different personal finance blogs, commenting and critiquing content written by other people. After all the dissenting writers would choose to ignore or delete my comments, which I found to be utterly frustrating. I realized that if I wanted to be heard then I needed to start my own personal finance blog. Five years later and I haven’t regretted that decision for a moment. It has provided me a soapbox from which to voice my opinion, and earn some extra cash in the process. This type of side gig was easy because it was something I was so passionate about that I didn’t even set out to make extra money, it just happened.

Now there are some people out there who want nothing to do with building a website, writing articles, and promoting content. They would rather let their creative juices flow. I have several friends in the past couple years that have gotten into photography as both a hobby and a side business. Just think of all the weddings, engagement photos, showers, and baby pictures that people clamor over. There is serious upside to having your own photography business if you know what you’re doing. The trick to a business like this is passion, creativity, talent and a quality camera. You need to invest money to make money, purchasing a canon digital camera would be worth its weight in gold if you want to be a serious photographer.

So you may not be of the creative variety, nor do you have patience for maintaining a website, rest assured there are plenty of other potential side gigs out there that are great for earning some extra cash. I knew of a gentlemen who was over $80,000 in debt and decided to pick up a second job delivering pizza on nights and weekends. I know this doesn’t sound overly glamorous, but with the cash tips he received he was able to get out of debt after just a few years. Lawn and yard maintenance, snow removal, and fix-it services are all in high demand. Today, people are so busy with their work and social lives they are more than content to hire out these routine maintenance services in order to save themselves some time.

Amkette is a leading brand in India for Digital Lifestyle products and a well known brand in India ofcourse. With introduction of various innovative products in store, they are one of the brand with goodwill in India. We at GizmoLord grabbed one such innovative product from Amkette named “Amkette Turbo 7 Port USB Hub” where we will review the product in detailed manner.

Amkette Turbo 7 Port USB Hub

Amkette Turbo 7 Port USB Hub

Amkette Turbo 7 Port USB Hub is a powered USB hub which can be used for multiple purpose such as connecting multiple USB powered devices, charging USB powered smartphones and a lot more. We shall explore all these details in our following in-depth review of Amkette Turbo 7 Port USB Hub.

Package

Amkette Turbo 7 Port USB Hub Amkette Turbo 7 Port USB Hub Package

Amkette Turbo 7 Port USB Hub is packed in a complete sealed plastic moulded package. You will need to cut the package from all sides to get the contents of the package out. The package contains the following items:

  • Amkette Turbo 7 Port USB Hub
  • Power Adapter
  • USB Extension Cable (Male-Female Port)
  • User Manual

The overall package seems very decent. The manual supplied is very tiny in font size and dull printed but it serves the purpose to an extent we suppose.

Design

The Amkette Turbo 7 Port USB Hub is designed very precisely keeping the uniqueness and goodwill of the quality products from Amkette India. The USB Hub is having 7 different USB 2.0 ports namely 2 ports located at the top of the device, 3 ports located on the front portion, one port on the left and one port on the right portion totalling 7 ports in the device.

The rectangular curved Amkette Turbo 7 Port USB Hub is designed in such a way that, it helps itself from being dusty. Let me explain this part specifically with reference from the images as follows:

Amkette Turbo 7 Port USB Hub Package Top USB Port

You can check here that the top 2 ports are given a lid door which helps the port from dust and other elements in nature.

Amkette Turbo 7 Port USB Hub Package Front Port

The rest ports are covered with the USB wire rolled (0.6m) over the device.

The device is having a red LED power light on top left portion over the top. The device is having rubber grips on bottom portion of the device. We really appreciate the design aspect of this device which is brilliantly done considering the environmental factors.

One of the disturbing observation we had is the red LED light on the Amkette Turbo 7 Port USB Hub module. The light is too bright that it disturbs a user’s vision especially at low light or night. A low lit LED would have been more preferred here instead.

Quality

Moving towards questioning over the Quality of the product, we explored this section in a very detailed manner. The Amkette Turbo 7 Port USB Hub is made of hard plastic and the quality of the plastic is very stiff and tough. The USB wire used in the device is broad, hard coated with thick plastic element. The USB port if we observe closely, it is having gold colored filaments which is quite exceptional from the local USB ports you see in market where you find only steel filaments. We are not sure if its gold plated filaments as we didnt deassembled the device yet in our experiments, but it is indeed better than the local ones we see. The extension cable provided along with the product package is of top notch quality comparing with the extension cable we receive with any of the top brands producing data cards. We are very much satisfied with the product quality for the price tag its being offered. The USB Hub is having surge protection feature which helps the connected device from getting damaged under any overcurrent circumstances.

Performance

The Amkette Turbo 7 Port USB Hub uses Multiple Transaction Translator (MTT) technology which gives a guaranteed 12Mbps minimum speed in each of the 7 USB ports of the device. Each port is 2.0 compatible and unfortunately not designed for the latest 3.0 USB technology. Any 3.0 USB powered device connected to Amkette Turbo 7 Port USB Hub will operate at 2.0 USB speed. The maximum data transfer speed on each port is upto 480 Mbps. The USB Hub is supplied with 5v power adapter making it completely compatible for connecting high power consuming USB devices.

Our Observation: The Amkette Turbo 7 Port USB Hub is plug & play compatible which makes it simple to connect and operate without any hassle. We connected Google Nexus 4 smartphone to the USB Hub and observed the charging voltage and frequency. The Amkette Turbo 7 Port USB Hub provided flat 1A charging output to the smartphone making the charging more efficient. We connected 250GB Western Digital external Hard Disk Drive to the USB HUB and tried with some transfer of files to and from the connected PC. We got 29Mbps transfer speed here (the transfer speed also depends on the HDD read & write speed).

Judging with the performance factor, we can surely say that this product is definitely perfect for anyone looking for a powered USB HUB. It will never disappoint you over quality, performance and design factor.

Value for money

As we mentioned, Amkette Turbo 7 Port USB Hub is truly impressive with its design, quality, and performance. The product comes with a price tag of 1,295 INR which we find very reasonable for the product of this class and features. The product comes with a year warranty by the manufacturer. You can purchase this product from some of the famous online shopping sites such as Flipkart, Amazon India, Snapdeal, Homeshop18 and Infibeam.

When developing content for the Internet, it is vital to have a full understanding of the target audience and the site that the material is being published on. It is only after careful contemplation of the needs of the site, and of the readers that is possible to create an article that will convince the reader to access it.

There are numerous factors that go into the development of an effective article. I wish to discuss three of the biggest factors that goes into determining if an article is truly effective in reaching out the reading audience.

Three Things To Consider When Writing A Web Article

Understand the Target Demographic

Any worthy article describes a solution to a problem facing a particular group of web citizens. For instance, a document designed to inform teenage girls about the latest exploit of a pop star will not intrigue someone looking for material on coal power plants.

This goes beyond the actual material discussed, encompassing the underlying tone of the text and the vernacular used. Pop media will often take on a lighter tone when discussing current events, making a point to bring up the positive aspects that a new development will have on the reader or industry.

Informational articles strive to keep a viewpoint out of the discussion, focusing on the core facts that a researcher will be interested.

The final component of demographics is the vernacular used. Different generations have differing viewpoint on appropriate language and terminology. It would be improper to utilize slang terms first brought into vogue in the 1980’s when trying to reach a millennial.

By understanding who and what your target audience is, you can create a rapport that will convince them to read your work, both now and in the future. On whatever platform your site is designed, you will need it to be bug free and that’s where this site named bugfinders will help you.

Present Material in Line With The Site’s Goals

A good article is one that fits in with the material previously discussed on the site. For instance, one would not discuss politics on a site dedicated to the car of kittens. A writer must understand the goals of a site, in order to produce high quality content. There are two major ways to go about this. The first is to review articles previously posted, and try to create a document that mirrors them.

The second way is to contact the website maintainers, and specifically ask what they are looking for. Whenever I develop an article for a new website, I do both to ensure that the final product will meet the editorial guidelines of the site owner.

The site owner has dedicated time and resources to developing a community of readers. Take advantage of this, and create material that brings value to the site.

Create Fresh Material

A fresh take on an issue or development can easily bring in viewers to a website. By concentrating on new material, you help boost both your credibility and that of the site hosting the article. When someone searches for material on the web, information relating to current events will inevitably be considered of higher value to the reader than something that happened over a decade ago.

Sometimes it is difficult to find inspiration for a good article, at which point you may be better suited looking at some existing work for hints on where to go. Look at articles on this site, for example, and spot where you can provide some new information.

Conclusion

Web content development is a complex issue fraught with numerous challenges. By breaking down the challenge into discrete chunks, it is possible to identify the most effective way to create items that will bring people to the article.

Age, experience, and the site itself are vital items to keep in mind, before even creating the outline of a document. If you set out with the full knowledge of what the final product will look like, you will find the topic will be better received.

Businesses of all kinds are always on the lookout for ways to save money without compromising on the quality of the product or service they deliver. It’s a simple equation – the lower your outgoings, the greater your profit margin.

While many of the cuts you make to your business can have an adverse effect on your product – letting go of staff, the use of cheaper materials, etc – one resource which can often save you money without having a negative impact is technology. Here, we consider a number of technologies which can do exactly this.

CAD software

Businesses which work in any way with 3D products and designs stand to benefit hugely from 3D CAD design software. This software can save a great deal of time, as well as reducing the requirement for materials which might otherwise be used in the design process. Both of these factors come together to save businesses a massive amount of money over the course of a financial year.

Open source operating systems

When you’re running a business, the cost of keeping your operating systems up-to-date can add up. Rather than falling behind with your technology, it can pay to make use of open source operating systems.

The most commonly used open source operating systems are Linux distributions such as Ubuntu and Debian. If the computers in your office have a very specific use, you may well be able to find a distribution which is more perfectly suited to your needs.

Basic pieces of software which your business might require, such as office software, can also be found under open source licensing, thus saving your business even more money.

Video conferencing

One of the greatest expenses of business some years ago was travel. When the time came to meet with clients in other cities, there was once little choice but for one party to send a small delegation on a business trip. Telephone conversations were not only deemed too impersonal, but they were also an impractical means of opening up group discussion.

Video conferencing offers the perfect compromise. It’s possible to hold a conference which allows those at both ends to see the other party, removing the impersonal element of remote communication. Needless to say, video conferencing has the ability to reduce costs dramatically for businesses who deal with a variety of clients located around the country, or even around the world.

The world is only getting smaller with more and more people telecommuting and working with people in foreign countries. When sending important documents that need to be signed, it’s much easier to a go with a mobile friendly e-signature solution rather than have the recipient receive it by mail or scan his signature. The latter is also not always recognized in legal court. Here’s a list of the best apps that can be used for creating legal signatures on your iPhone.

Mobile Signature Apps

All of these apps in this post might require a brief initial setup of your signature in the application.

Mobile Signature Apps

DocuSign for Mobile

DocuSign for Mobile is an electronic signature solution with its’ own iPhone app. The DocuSign app is very clean and well-designed. It’s even possible to use in it conjunction with other services like Google, Dropbox, Box, and Salesforce. One of the coolest features of the DocuSign for Mobile app is the possibility to carry your documents on your phone and use it to capture other people’s signatures..

e-SignLive

e-SignLive Mobile Signature App can be used on multiple devices and currently uses the cloud to offer a streamlined service on all devices. In addition, e-SignLive offers extensive capabilities such as an offline mode as well as additional types of electronic signature verification such as SMS signatures with geo-localized verification. In a similar fashion to DocuSign, e-SignLive Mobile integrates easily with various CRMs and other third-party applications.

Adobe EchoSign

Adobe EchoSign Mobile allows you to send and receive documents for signature from your EchoSign document library. This means you will need to have all your documents already uploaded into the desktop version of EchoSign to get the app to really work well. One of the best features of the EchoSign app is their document management system that lets you know what needs to be sent out, signed and keeps track of all your business processes. Other than its dependence on the EchoSign desktop version, the app looks a lot better on iPad than it does on the iPhone.

Single factor authentication, which most of us know of as logging in with a prearranged typed in password, has been used for decades as the primary form of locking off our personal data from external access without permission. Unfortunately, this type of data security is no longer secure enough to be reliable (if it ever was). Fortunately, a new type of login protection has become widely available for all sorts of commercial and private uses, and for the most part it’s completely free to use.

Authentication on Mobile

We’re talking about two factor authentication, also known as TFA for short. In basic terms, TFA creates a whole new and much stronger layer of security over your original login mechanism by requiring you to use a secondary identity verification mechanism after you’ve logged into an account with your password.

This secondary factor could range in nature from a physical security token, to a chip encoded card to biometric readings of your body’s physical characteristics. However, what it most commonly comes as is a one-time security code that’s sent to your mobile device as a text message. This is what we’re going to discuss here in greater detail; we’re going to explain the importance of using TFA through your mobile phone and how you can do it the right way.

Why Mobile Two Factor Authentication Matters

Why does TFA matter? Because of things like this. Now, that’s just an example that shows just how badly compromised information security can be on the web and how rampant the work of data thieves is, but it illustrates a very crucial point about your personal information, namely that it will very likely at some point become the target of hackers or fraudsters.

This means you simply cannot take your important online account security for granted by simply using a password. Using keystroke loggers, spyware and Wi Fi snooping software (to name just a few data theft tools) thieves can and regularly do troll the web for any easy target they can get their hands on.

If your computer happens to be the victim of this trolling, your email, cloud storage, online banking and other passwords could all become quickly compromised and used to take control of your digital assets, funds, and most important personal contact information.

Simply by setting up two factor authentication on your email, cloud storage, web hosting, online banking and online payments accounts, as well as anywhere else it’s available, you can avoid the danger of password surveillance simply because your password won’t be enough to thieves even if they do steal it.

This is the real marvel of the typical mobile phone based TFA system; since your login procedure also requires a unique one time access code that gets sent to your phone each time you log in to an online account, nobody can snoop their way into your data unless they actually steal your mobile device from you.

Where You Should Use Mobile Multi-Factor Authentication

You literally have no excuse to avoid setting up TFA for your online accounts. It’s available nearly everywhere, it’s easy to set up and it’s free for all the email, social and storage services most of us use!

At a basic level, you should really activate the two factor protection options that your Twitter, Facebook, Google and Microsoft mail services are offering you. Furthermore, you should also activate TFA for access to any online property that you own. This means protecting your web hosting/domain registration server access with a second layer of authentication and thus keeping your websites and URLs safe from hijacking by thieves.

If your web hosting service doesn’t offer TFA, either implement it yourself if possible or change to a hosting company that takes digital security more seriously. Godaddy and Dreamhost both offer Two Factor Authentication as a free client service. If you’re using a CMS such as WordPress to manage your websites, adding TFA to your dashboard login is also a good idea.

Additionally, you should check if your online banking and other financial account providers offer two factor options to their clients. If they do, apply them!

All of these two factor options are easy to set up and none of them require you to have more than a few minutes of spare time and a mobile phone of your own.

Finally, if you’re a business owner who needs a more robust multi factor system to protect your company’s internal data networks, you might want to take a look at business level security services such as those provided by companies like Authentify and Duo Security.

Some Basic Security Tips

Even if you’re using two factor authentication on all of your online and offline accounts, it’s still possible to suffer a compromise unless you keep these crucial security tips in mind at all times:

  • Never leave your online sessions logged in and your computer open. No data protection system is going to work if you leave the door open for anyone who’s passing by. 
  • Do not lose your mobile phone or lend it to people you don’t know. It is your primary TFA security key, it needs to be kept safe.
  • Many TFA options let you pick “trusted” machines on which a second factor request won’t be made if you log in from them: don’t set up any trusted machines. If you do and a thief with knowledge of your password can get to them, they’ll have access to your information.

The back portion of the package is printed with description of the Amkette Car Stereo Aux Cable, its features and the package contents. The package also mentions that the product is available in white and black color.

With high grade components used to manufacture this product, the product no wonder will ever disappoint us with its usage aspect.

Value for money

But believe me, judging with the quality of the product, it will never go wrong.

Here, we’ll take a look at five crucial lessons of start up success, considering a number of areas which are incredibly important for success in the early stages.

1. Marketing

Marketing is an integral part of success for any business, but it’s something which plays a particularly important role in the early days. While the marketing landscape used to look pretty tough for young businesses which didn’t have a large amount of starting capital, the story isn’t so bleak today.

Young businesses need to exploit the potential of the internet for cost-effective marketing strategies.

For a small cost, businesses are able to reach a vast number of people, thus gaining invaluable exposure.

2. Make Your Data Accessible

The internet has a lot to offer small businesses, and not only when it comes to marketing. The web also makes it easier for businesses to access key information and handle it from just about anywhere.

This can be helpful when you’re juggling a lot of things at once in the early days. The ability to use online accounting packages, like the Accounts Extra software from Sage One, makes for a user friendly interface which enables complete control and unrivalled functionality for all accounting aspects of the business.

3. Secure Capital

There are usually a number of government schemes aimed at securing capital for small businesses. It should be considered the job of these businesses to make themselves aware of these schemes and to take advantage of them wherever possible.

Things can be difficult for small firms so it’s important to take help wherever it is available. Remember, these grants and schemes won’t come to you – you need to go to them!

4. Respect Security

All businesses can become the target of a malicious attack in the digital realm and, therefore, all businesses need to take preventative measures. Every piece of information which your business is responsible for should be kept secure and password protected. Whether you’re using cloud technology or local storage, it’s your job to keep things secure so make sure the proper measures are in place.

5. Keep Costs Down

In the first days of your business, money will be more precious than ever. Not only will it be tough to secure further investment, but you’ll find the number of outgoings which you’re able to reduce will be small.

For this reason, it’s essential that you take opportunities where they do exist. Matters such as utility bills should be taken very seriously, posing a chance for you to lower your costs without compromising on the quality of your product or service.

Capdase is one of the best known cases and accessories company in world, with a support of enormous number of products, from tablets to handled gaming consoles, from basic scratch guards to power banks Capdase has got you covered, no matter what. The product in our basket today Capdase Xpose + Luxe XL. It’s a complete protection package for the Samsung Galaxy Note. Capdase has made sure that your device is well protected, presented and enjoyed equally as well with this neat package. It’s really a very well thought out package, covering every nook and corner of your device. Without a much further ado, let’s put this package through our regular drills. We will cover the contents of the package, design, quality, performance and finally the verdict.

Contents of the package:

  1. Soft Jacket
  2. Id Pocket
  3. Foldable Display Stand
  4. Scratch Guard

These points shall be discussed in detail as we proceed further with our review.

Design

Capdase Xpose + Luke XL Case For Samsung Galaxy Note N7000

The first thing you will notice about the id pocket is the bright orange interior and a small section for caller id display, with a metal rim and the Capdase logo printed in black. The interior of the id pocket case is made from a soft sponge which will make sure that the screen of your phone get cleaned every time you pull out or put in your phone. Turn to the back side and you will notice a small metal ring at the top for the lanyard attachment and a speaker hole at the bottom. Serrated texture and neat and clean stitching around the periphery of the case gives it a firm grip.

The soft jacket is a classic Capdase, matte finish at the back and glossy on the side, with sections for the lock volume keys. You will find the necessary cuttings like that of the camera, flash, stylus, and speaker and for microusb port. The usual red stripe Capdase is also present at the bottom with the Capdase logo printed above it.

What struck me most is how easily the phone slid into the soft jacket, but make no mistake, it doesn’t slide out easily thanks to the border that goes slightly over the edge of the phone holding it tight. The only problem I had was at the beginning of the id pocket case, with soft jacket already on my note, I had to apply a bit of a force to take out the phone from its case, but once the material got settled with the shape and size, it’s now easily comes out, but at the same time it won’t drop the phone even if you inverted the case, it’s like a perfect balance.

Quality

Capdase has its own reputation for the quality and craftsmanship and the same is clearly visible in the package overall. The id pocket feels sturdy and well-built, you can clearly tell that it can take some beating while giving a nice professional look.

Soft Jacket on the other hand uses a highly flexible plastic that which gives a premium feel, even when you just hold the case in your hand. The overall result is a very modern, stylish and a simple case that can help extend the life your device to many more years.

Scratch guard provided is also of very high quality, amazingly resistive against keys and coins, though I did had to adjust my screen brightness in the direct sunlight after its application, but that’s the case again with most of the scratch guards out in the market.

Performance

Performance wise I don’t have much of a complaints besides the two. The caller id window is in the center of the case, while with the new updates, the caller id now shown on the top of the mobile screen and not the center rending the caller id window is completely useless. The other one is that of the display stand, I fear the constant folding and unfolding of the display stand might take a toll on its joints and they might snap one day.

Verdict

I must say I am particularly impressed with the overall package. It’s a complete protection set with an added display stand for a truly no hands reading or when watching a movie. I am giving it a 4 out of 5, for the caller id windows problem and the sheer amount of bulk it adds to the already big sized phone. But yet still I would recommend this product to anyone looking out for total protection package and I am sure they will love it. You can grab one for your Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 from online stores such as Flipkart, Infibeam, Snapdeal, Amazon, and Amazon India.
