5 Things to Have in Mind when Shopping Online this 2017



Over the years, the use of internet to buy items had become a daily activity all over the globe. Whether it's via Amazon, EBay, or any other commerce stores you are shopping, there are some mistakes that people are still making till date, regardless if it's your first time or not, this 2017, here are the latest tips you should bear in mind when you go Online to Shop for anything - Be it Goods or Services, especially goods.

1. Have a Budget

Just like you would normally do when going to a physical shop or market to buy items, this is very important because you may find other "Shiny objects" that will take your mind off your the exact item you intended buying, hence you end up buying and paying for what you didn't even budget for.


2. Use a Correct Contact Address

Upon Signing up for an account with an E-commerce store, the details (Home address, Phone number) you fill about your self is sometimes different from the details you give when the items you are buying would be shipped to you. Say for Example, I have my Home Address filled when signing up for an Ebay account, but when recently buying items, if I will be at the Office when the items gets delivered, I fill my Office as delivery address during check out.
Hope you get it now, unless someone else can pick you item, it's advisable and better of being available at where your items get delivered.

3. Check for Discounts and Coupons
Coupons had been saving lives for a very long time and it sure would save you some, we mean saving you some extra cash, precisely you are buying in bulk, coupons would surely come in handy, so make sure you check around if you can get a Discount Or Coupons from any Online store or E-commerce sites you buying from. There are a couple of sites that offer free valid Coupons which you may want to look up to. Hot UK Savings is one of the leading voucher search engines in UK market which offers latest discount codes & vouchers from top retailers in almost every category.

4. Is it Pay Before or After Delivery

At check out, does the E-commerce run on Pay Before Or After Delivery? Some popular online malls allow both, while some don't. Paying before delivering is often the only option if the items will be shipped from overseas. Be sure you are comfortable with whatever options they give since you will have to trust them with your Credit/Debit cards and Credentials.

5. Do they Allow Returns of shipped Goods?

Take for example, the likes of AliExpress, as we may know already they have thousands of sellers or merchants and unfortunately NOT all merchants accept returns of goods after you bought them, although most of them do, (anything to keep you, customers happy). But it's very advisable and important you check for this option from whatever E-commerce sites you are buying anything from. Because anything might go wrong, items may not be as you expected or as described, in such cases you will have to return such item and have your money refunded or the item replaced.

We hope you found these tips handy, and your experience safer and rest assured when you shop online.

v.    Belt or direct driven

When it comes to playing the music, it can be using a belt driven system or direct driven system. In the direct system, the motor would be mounted beneath the platter and thus allow for rotating backwards. This is great for DJs.

Why You are seeing Traffic Referrals from Blackhatworld and Motherboard.Vice.com on Google Analytics

So recently, I started getting and seeing strange referral traffic from Blackhatworld and Vice.Motherborad.com and it's been going on for the past 5 days. When I looked into my Google Analytics. Going further to investigate, I wanted to know the particular page's URL that was referring that traffic on my Analytics, I clicked - Real Time >> Content and found this URL -
motherboard.vice.com and now, blackhatworld
Still I went further and picked up the second URL -
www.blackhatworld.com/seo/this-guy-not-one-f-ck-given.897424/

Someone Spammed Google Analytics, a Russian man precisely...

Upon visiting that URL, I realised from thread that I am not alone, millions of other web masters viewing their Google Analytics are seeing the same thing, someone had spammed Google Analytics, a Russian to be precise and funny he was doing it to show his support for Donald Trump.

The alleged Motherboard spam. It's not us. Image: Paul Anthony / Twitter


Although last month, As Analytics Edge reported in November, websites have noticed referrals from lifehacĸer.com and ɢoogle.com. Check those URLs again; they are not the real Lifehacker or Google domains.

To be clear, this is not anything that VICE or Motherboard is doing. Instead, someone is including a link to the article in their own Google Analytics spam, and seems they had even added Black hat's article to the spam sites.
The likely explanation is Google's “Measurement Protocol,” which allows developers to send data directly to Google Analytics servers. It looks like the traffic is coming from Motherboard, but, in reality, it's not.

Why did He do this?

As you have read in the headline above, it was to support Donald Trump, the Google analytics Spammer wanted the loads of traffic and wanted all the fame and glory on his own Name, his name is VITALY POPOV, we also found out he wanted revenge on Google for blocking his AdSense account some years back.

We had learnt that this is a temporary issue as Google Spam team is looking into it already.

Although there are controversies surrounding his name due to the fact that someone had bought a domain bearing the spammer's name - vitalypopov.com
The man promised to direct the domain where ever the Spammer wants if Only he agrees to stop Spamming Google Analytics.
At the moment of publishing this post, the domain is only redirecting to UrbanDictionary's page that is carrying description of A**Hole.

The Most Powerful console in the World is NOT PS4 Pro nor Xbox One S :p

It's less expensive than the PlayStation 4 Pro or the magical XBox One S, yet seems to be the one and only console to break a world record to be the Most powerful console on earth.
This console goes for just £150  (a hundred and fifty Pounds). What are we referring to?
It's the Nvidia’s SHIELD TV – the small but mighty Android TV streaming service that doubles up as insanely powerful gaming rig.

This console according to rumors, is so powerful, in fact, it can play games such as The Witcher 3 (below) at 1080p resolution and 60 frames per second.






Nvidia’s SHIELD TV
Rather than the old school, yet effective, way of having a dedicated graphics card, SHIELD taps into super computer farms placed strategically around the world which helps play the games.

NVIDIA is very confident about the console and ensures that you play with it, some of the newest games available now with the highest graphics quality and awesomeness. Some the games include: various Batman games, Tomb Raider and moe that are yet to be revealed.




Since the inception of cloud gaming, according to NVIDIA spokesperson, "Console gamers are locked into a hardware spec for several years,” This is a gap that the Console had come to fill.

“It also delivers a smooth 60fps gaming experience at up to 1080p resolution, whilst PlayStation Now is capped at 30fps and 720p resolution.

“We also regularly upgrade the GeForce GTX GPUs in our GeForce NOW servers so that the gaming experience gets better with time.

“GeForce NOW’s cloud servers currently provide performance that is superior to consoles such as the PS4, and a year from now they will offer twice the performance.”

However, we have to Point out that YOU WILL NEED A VERY HUGE AND FAST INTERNET CONNECTION to use this and enjoy its cloud gaming.

Nvidia recommends a 5-10 Mbps internet download speed to use GeForce Now… which is surely super quick.

You're also Advised to use a 5GHZ router.

In case your internet speed doesn't meet up with the above, no much worries, you’ll still be able to play games, but expect some lag and the resolution to drop.

However, once you've got internet that is fast enough, the SHIELD could be a viable alternative to the mainstream consoles.

15 Secret iPhone Codes Revealed - The best iPhone tricks

Apple iPhones as we know come with very secured technicalities that make it seem very hard to explore. But there is a list of Apple iPhone codes which you can use to unveil or unlock unique features hidden inside the iPhone. This will enable users to do more and enhance their call quality among other features.


If you would like to know the IMEI number of your iPhone, improve the normal settings in your device or tweak your iPhone iOS the way Android users do to their operating system. Then these codes below are secret USSD codes will work great for your  Apple iPhone.





*3001#12345#* : Field Test mode

*#5005*7672#: SMS centre number*3370#: Turn on or off EFR (Enhanced Full Rate), a mode that improves your iPhone’s call quality

*#06#: Find out your iPhone’s IMEI number

*#31#: Hide your number on calls option

*#43#: Check if call waiting is on or off

*43#: Turn on call waiting

#43#: Turn off call waiting

*646#: Check minutes left on contract

*225#: Find out your current mobile account balance

*777#: Find out prepaid account balance

*#61#: Number of missed calls

FIELD TEST mode is an interesting feature which allows users to see their phone-signal strength measured in numbers, with the number going up and down depending on signal.
A value above -80 is a full-bar strength, but anything below -110 is very weak. This is a more accurate way of seeing whether you have enough signal to make a call, rather than holding on to hope with one-bar.
We advice you to be careful and don't tamper or do what you don't understand with the codes as using the secret codes on your iPhone is totally at your own risk.
