If you are a business owner or entrepreneur you may be asking yourself why you should invest in this technology. How will this help increase profits or make your business run more smoothly?

1. NFC makes check out faster & increases footfalls

Nothing is more upsetting to a business than seeing that customers are getting tired or upset, in line to pay for the goods and abandoning their shopping baskets before check out. You want them to be on their way quickly, happy with their purchases and willing to return to your store as often as possible. Contactless payments make this happen so seamlessly, because all the consumer has to do is tap and pay, placing their phone near an NFC reader and the amount is deducted. Just a tap and the customer can move on to doing other things in life.

2. NFC increases customer loyalty by enhancing store experience

Business these days is very competitive, with multiple offers and discounts available to consumers, so any technology that builds a loyal customer base will benefit growth. That is where NFC payments can help, by making the customer interaction easy and hassle free and setting your café or store apart from the competition.

3. NFC transactions are safer & more secure

Safety and security is a concern for you and your clients. Here contactless technology can help because it has several superior security features, such as a PIN authorization and fingerprint scan options. These ensure that transactions are completed in a way that all parties are protected. The merchant receives his payment promptly and the shopper is safe from theft or misuse by not sharing any of his personal and financial information such as credit card or bank account details.

4. NFC means timely payments & real time analysis

Prompt settlement is desired by all businesses and is an added benefit of the NFC system, which also helps you track and analyze sales transactions and spending habits. This gives you the added advantage of helping you plan future marketing and sales efforts as well. The more you know about the shopping habits of consumers’ the better equipped is your business to anticipate their needs.

5. NFC is seen as innovative and fun

Early adoption of NFC technology makes your business appear innovative and more attractive. Ever since Apple launched NFC enabled phones in October 2014, the momentum to include NFC chips in other mobiles has grown as well. This means that more and more people will be familiar with and want to embrace this technology and your business can be a trendsetter in this regard.

In conclusion, It makes solid business sense: So if innovation is crucial to your growth, NFC is the right choice for you and your customers. Faster, safer payments lead to greater growth and the thriving of businesses and communities everywhere.

How To Root Infinix X507 Kitkat Android Smartphone

For those who may have been following my updates, just 2 weeks ago, the New Infinix Hot X507 was released into the market and became popular because of its amazing features yet a very Affordable price tag. You may see the Hands-on review with specs and price Here.
Now, I'll be showing us how we can Root the Infinix Hot 507. Goodnews is this method would also work on any MTK Android device that runs KitKat, JellyBean, ICS & Lower versions.

RECOMMENDED : EASY GUIDE TO REPAIR CHANGE/IMEI OF MTK ANDROID DEVICES.

NOTE:
Like we'll always tell you, there are terms you  must agree before you Root your device.
  • Rooting your device Voids/cancels the Warranty of 12 months that comes with it.
  • If you Brick your phone while rooting, we won't be Held responsible. Although Bricking is never a thing to worry about if all the Steps are Carefully followed.
Rooting the New Infinix Hot X507 was a bit challenging at first, I tried to root it without PC with Rooting Apps like TowelRoot, FramaRoot, KingRoot, it proved Stubborn.
Infinix Hot 507 uses MTK chipset, Android 4.4.2 KitKat having a LOCKED Bootloader, that made it quite difficult but when I plugged it to my PC using the Steps below. I rooted it Successfully.


It's quite easy, just Follow the Steps below.

Best Method: How To Root Infinix X507 (with PC).

REQUIREMENTS: 
- Your Infinix Hot 507 (or Any other MTK/Android device running KitKat 4.4.2) 
- Your Computer
- USB Cable
- Internet Connection

1. Download PDANet HERE -- DON'T Install yet. We'll do that later.

2. Download and Install VRoot / iRoot app on your PC (version 1.7.9.2) - Download here Or my google site here.
Installing it may Show Up in Chinese Lang, use Internet to update version to English.

3.  On your phone make sure you enable USB Debug mode, to do this; goto Settings >> ALL >> Scroll down to DEVELOPER OPTIONS >> Switch it ON, >> scroll down again to USB debugging and Tick It.

4. Install the PDAnet you earlier downloaded, it will prompt you to Plug the phone, now Plug it to the PC,(make sure Internet is ON for your PC). Your computer will update and Install the complete Drivers for your Infinix Hot. When drivers finish installing, Close the PdaNet app on your PC.

5. Launch the iRoot App on your computer, Click Connect Device.

Give it some minutes to detect your Infinix HOT X507 smartphone.

Infinix 507 MTK Kitkat



Once it detects it, It will Load drivers again, (make sure your Internet is still ON).

Minutes later, you'll see "INFINIX X507 is Connected."
Now click ROOT.

Sit back, Relax, and watch the Process.




After sometime, Your phone will Reboot. After the reboot, your iRoot will now tell you - Infinix X507 root successed!



Congratulations, You have successfully Rooted your Infinix Hot (507).

Before you unplug your USB, On your phone, go to USB menu & click on CHARGE ONLY then unplug your device....Wait,...
It hasn't ended there, to complete the Steps, After you successfully Root your Infinix hot, iRoot will already Install SuperUser and some strange Chinese (or do I say chinko) apps which you will SEE on your menu. Find the Superuser app on your Infinix Phone.


NOTE II : There are Two Apps like that people complain are showing in Chinese language after rooting Infinix Hot. One of the App has a Horse logo on it, leave it, but uninstall the other chinese app.
Now, Open the App with Horse logo (that's the SuperUser App), Open the App and Update it with internet, it will automatically turn back to English. Hope that solves it.

Install ROOT CHECKER or any App that requires root access to confirm your device has been Rooted, You will need to set the SUPERUSER to Allow or Grant apps Root permissions.

Hope it works for you, if you got any errors or challenges, leave a comment so we can help out, meanwhile, Press the SHARE button to bookmark this page and tell friends about it.
And If you're gonna COPY this post to your blog, Pls be cheerful, give us a credit for our small work by Linking back to us where you got it from,,, being generous won't kill anybody. LOL... Enjoy

Over the past years till date, more ways of stealing people's data are been used. Some of the techniques Hackers and Spies can use to hack your accounts are - Trojans/backdoors, Drawbacks, Keylogging, Social Engineering and so on. These techniques requires them to install the malicious apps on your system just before you begin to use that system.
But what if you don't allow them and because of that you feel your computer is very safe, guess what? You could still get knocked off through Visual Hacking. This is yet another method which Thieves, spies and/or hackers can still use against you, without laying hands on your Computer.
Visual Hacking involves cyber-criminals or intruders peeping over your shoulder while you’re working on your computers or mobile devices. Sometimes they don't need to be near you, spies can go as far as using Binoculars, powerful smartphones and quality camera devices to invade, collect and use whatever information displaying on your screen.
Many cases found is when you go to cyber-cafes, schools, airports, offices, inside buses and trains.You might focus on your computer or mobile device, chatting or something, not knowing someone behind you is peeping into your privacy, visual hackers can infiltrate you, from the outside-in.
A lot of employees have had their Confidential data stolen by visual hacking, complaints have been made but later realising this had happened when their devices got hacked at a Glance, visually. 

PROTECTING YOURSELF FROM VISUAL HACKERS & INTRUDERS.

Some suggestions to protect yourself from getting hacked visually include;
- You trying to block or hide what you're doing with your hands or an object, this can reduce the risk but is not a practical thing to do in public.
- Sitting at a corner, against a wall may also help but you still won't be comfortable because you'll find yourself trying to adjust every minute from discomfort, hence be unable to focus on what you're doing on your device.
These suggestions seem okay, but we know are not so efficient, this is why the perfect protection for yourself and your data from Passer-byes, who could be Visual Hackers had been provided by 3M™ ePrivacy Filter Software, the application works hand-in-hand with the Standard 3M Privacy Software.

There are 5 colors (back-covers) to choose from the Infinix Hot X507,  the colored back-covers glow in the dark. We got a white,, cool isn't it?

The PHYSICAL APPEARANCE:

With height of 142.4mm, breadth 73.2mm, and a small thickness of only 10.1mm, this means the phone is pretty slim, this appearance surely beats some of the trending Tecno smartphones, like the Tecno M7

Some Pre-installed Apps & games that came along were:
- Konga shopping app 
- Carlcare
- BBM
- Asphalt 7
- and Assassins Creed 3 amongst others.

LIKES AND DISLIKES

Battery Life is the major thing I always look out for in many Android Smartphones, I end up disliking most of them because of their batteries but the battery Life of this New Infinix Hot is not doing bad for me at the moment, I'll keep watching it closely as time goes on.
There are so many reasons why I like this Smartphone, it seems to have so amazing features compared to the price which seem to be rather affordable.

Do You Know? You Can Get A Paper Check (cheque) From PayPal

Been a while we shared something about Online cash, there're many of them I will be posting soon, PayPal, Adsense, etc, and how you can legitimately earn and handle your money and transactions with them, meanwhile today we'll be talking about one of the World's biggest e-commerce business, Paypal.
There is a simple question only a few think about, not to even speak of searching around for answers.

"Can I Get a Paper Check From Paypal?"

The Answer is: "Yes, You can Receive your Funds as Check from PayPal."
There are various reasons why people request their funds to be sent to them via Check from PayPal.
The major ones are perhaps, they have issues with PayPal or the Bank account they Linked to their Paypal, hence want it deposited to another bank where they run an account, so a paper check is the best way to do it.

Whatever your reasons are, you can ask PayPal to push all your funds as Check and send it to your doorstep.

I'll show us how,
PayPal check
Sample of a Paypal Paper check (Photo Credits: THENEST.com)

PayPal allows users to withdraw money from their account in three ways:

  1. TRANSFER TO A BANK ACCOUNT
  2. LOAD YOUR FUNDS IN YOUR PAYPAL DEBIT CARD or, 
  3. RECEIVE A PAPER CHECK.

You'll need a verified account to choose the paper check option, which also requires a confirmed address. It takes one to two weeks to receive the check for U.S. addresses and six weeks for foreign addresses, making a paper check the least-convenient method to withdraw funds right?. Note that PayPal charges $1.50 for the check, while the other two methods are free.


How to Request a Paper Check from PayPal

Step 1

Log into your PayPal account.

Step 2

Click on the "My Account" tab.

Step 3

Click on "Withdraw." >> Choose "Request a check."

Step 4

Fill in the amount you wish to withdraw. Use a decimal place between the dollars and cents.

Step 5

Use the pull-down menu to choose where you want PayPal to mail the check. You can add a new address if necessary by following the links. Click "Continue."

Step 6

Verify the amount.
 In case you ant to still change the Amount you want them to send you, click "Cancel," then go back to Step 4.
A $1.50 check fee will be subtracted from the proceeds. Click "Submit."

Step 7
Go to you mail box for a confirmation email. If you do not receive this, log back into PayPal and check the "My Account" section to be certain your check request has been processed.

WARNING:

  • PayPal will issue the check in the name of the account holder, so you will not be able to send a PayPal check to someone else.
  • Sending a check to someone else's address requires you to provide the recipient's credit card number to add the mailing address to your PayPal account.
It is always Adviced, even by other companies and Payment processors to use Bank Wire Transfer or The PayPal debit card (ATM or foreign currency transaction fees may apply.) which can be used to withdraw your funds anywhere in the world as it is faster, safer, and free.

Add & Display Author (Your) Name On Facebook Shared-Post Snippets

There had been a few popular stuffs I had written here about the Social Media Giant, Facebook, posts like
and
There're More on Social Media which you can read here, but I recently started noticing something on Facebook, when people share posts from websites and blogs, this New Feature displays the author (Website Owner's) Name below the snippet of the shared post on Facebook.

For Those who may not Know what Snippets are:

SNIPPETS are a small piece or small bit, scrap, or fragment having summary or description of a website or post that was shared on Facebook or Results after you search for keywords on Search Engines like Google.

The Advantage with this snippet feature, it will help Readers know who owns and Authors your various blogs, so they can easily find and keep in touch with you more closely.
To assure you of how valuable this feature could be, I checked around and found few popular bloggers that have already taken advantage of the tool.

This is what it actually looks like.



That's a snippet from +Jide Ogunsanya , a smart blogger who's using the tool. Once he shares or his visitors shares his stuff on facebook, it displays his name underneath the post, as the owner of the blog from which the post/link was shared.
As you can see, the snippet is showing his name and web address,
So we can easily know who owns which website/blog.


Here're More!

The next below is a snippet shared on Facebook from my 2nd blog



Facebook Share Snippets



.... and this one from A friend's blog


Facebook Share Snippets

Now, Let's Learn How to Add & Display Author Name On Facebook Share Snippets

There's No sweat in adding this feature to your own blog, it's just a line of META-TAGS, that's all
1. Login to your Blogger/Wordpress dashboard.
2. Go to Template >> Edit HTML
Click inside where you have all your template codes, then search or Press CTRL  + F
search for this code
 <data:blog.title/></title>
Right under the code above , you'll find this  </b:if>

Now,  under that little code, copy and Paste this
<meta content='YOUR NAME' name='Author'/>

3. Replace YOUR NAME with your own name.

4. Click Save, then give it time for it to take effect.
Effect will not be instant because this tool is not like other codes which you used for designing your blogs, this is actually a META-TAG, it would take about 15 - 30 minutes for Google to crawl your template and Save that change.
This meta tag doesn't only apply on helping you display Author name on Facebook shared posts snippets, it also helps your site look more detailed and descriptive on Search engines and especially Social Media. There're more meta-tags out there but this particular one is found relevant.
