As online content continues to be increasingly consumed through mobile platforms, it s no wonder we re seeing new formats to deliver information more quickly and fluidly. In the past, we ve seen Wibbitz present any news story as a visual and dynamic infographic instead of plain old text. But now Spritz believes that humans can read much faster using its system of streaming text at up to 600 words per minute.

Developed for smartphones and watches, the company has spent the last three years researching and trialling its system of what it calls text streaming . Based on the theory that most readers are slowed down in the information intake by the movements of the eye as it scans lines of text, Spritz squeezes entire novels into a small, 300 pixel-wide space and instead flashes each word for a brief fraction of a second. According to the developers, each word has an optimal recognition point — a letter that the eye searches for once it s jumped to that word in traditional text — and Spritz aligns all of its words around that letter, so it s in the same place each time.

The system, which can be trialled on the Spritz homepage, offers different speeds according to the abilities of each user. This is 250 words per minute:

This is 350 words per minute:

This is 500 words per minute:

While the system may seem overwhelming at first, those who master the higher speeds could boost their productivity immensely. Spritz is currently working to bring the technology to Samsung smartphones and its Galaxy Gear range, although a standalone app for other devices may not appear for a while yet. Are there other ways to reformat text for the web?

How to recover deleted text messages on your Android phone #backup #text #messages #android

How to recover deleted text messages on your Android phone

You never get used to that gut-wrenching moment when one realizes a very important SMS message or thread has just been deleted. What do you do now? Desperate users will go through anything to save those crucial messages if the trashed information is important enough. Recovering deleted messages is no easy feat, but jumping some hoops will definitely get you somewhere. There are some chances you can get those precious text messages back, and we can help you get to them!

Did you ever hear people say that files don t necessarily disappear from your computer when you delete them? This is definitely true. All those files are hidden somewhere in the hard drive, waiting to be retrieved or replaced. This is exactly what happens with Android phones as well. Everything we delete, including SMS messages, sticks around until enough time passes by and/or the space is needed to store other data.

10 best SMS apps for Android

A little about how deletion works

You may still be wondering how this is even possible. It s actually not a very complicated concept once we understand how deletion works. In most cases, trashing a file (in this case an SMS or MMS message) doesn t really erase it from the system; or at least it doesn t do it right away.

Your device will simply mark this file as inactive. In other words, it is made invisible and replaceable. As you continue using your device and adding new files, these start replacing deleted content. In other words, it is best that you stop using your phone if you really need to recover that text message. because it may get permanently wiped out after some time.

Carriers often have all your texts stored

This is not necessarily a solution, but it is still information that may be helpful in some cases. As it turns out, many wireless providers store your text messaging records and other data for extended periods of time (here is a chart with carrier data retention periods ). The only problem is they will likely not release that information to you simply because you accidentally deleted something.

However, some carriers may cooperate with the police if necessary. These companies have also been known to help users facing legal complications, as these messages could serve as evidence in a court of law. This won t help most of us, though, so let s move on to what you can do to actually obtain results.

Use data recovery software

So it s all lost and you really, really want that text message. It may be possible to obtain it by using data recovery software, which can scan your phone for deleted content and retrieve whatever may still be in existence.

Doing a simple Google search will show you plenty of data recovery tools for Android devices. Some are free, some are not, but many of the paid ones still offer a free trial period. Some of the most popular ones are Android Data Recovery. Dr. Fone. Coolmuster Android SMS+Contacts Recovery and FonePaw Android Data Recovery .

After you have the software, the process is pretty straight forward. Just install the program on your PC and run it. The only trick is that you will need to turn USB Debugging on. This option is under Developer Tools, in your Android Settings app.

Each software has its own specific steps. Some will require you to use an Android app to load everything to the computer, while other services can have the PC software do all the heavy lifting. Just make sure you follow instructions for your specific program.

After you let the program do its thing, you should be presented with all the files you can recover.

Making sure this doesn t happen again

You just realized this whole retrieving deleted text messages isn t exactly an easy feat. And it shouldn t really be you just got rid of the darn thing! You just happen to be lucky computing devices work a certain way. Regardless, the best way to solve something is to prevent it. There s many apps that can help you backup your text messages, as well as other content. Let s take a look at some of them.

SMS Backup Restore

This is among the most popular backup apps of its kind, with over 5 million downloads and a 4.5-star rating. And it s no wonder the service managed to get such a good reputation it is free to download and happens to have a pretty full set of features.

For starters, this application can store your text messages in XML format. It s also very convenient that the software can save your data both locally and in the cloud. It supports Email, Google Drive and Dropbox (through an add-on app). To make matters even more exciting, users can even schedule automatic updates, making sure you don t forget to store your SMS messages manually.

Easy Backup Restore

Need something that covers a bit more than SMS messages? Easy Backup Restore does very well for being a free app. This is a full-fledged backup solution that can store your SMS, MMS, call logs, calendar, bookmarks, dictionary contacts and apps.

It also happens to support SD cards, Gmail, Google Drive, Dropbox, Box and even OneDrive. And yes, you can also schedule your automatic updates. And if you have root access, Easy Backup Restore can also handle apps and app data.

Conclusion

Sadly, there s not much else we can do, unless you want to pay very hefty amounts of cash to data specialists so they can take your phone into a lab and dissect it. These tips should keep you pretty well covered, though. Just be sure to be a bit more careful next time, and use the preventive applications we told you about!

MMS Picture Messaging Information

This page contains information and advice on MMS Picture Messaging, and how set up this mobile phone service in the UK

What is MMS?

MMS stands for Multimedia Messaging Service, and more commonly referred to as ‘Picture Messaging’.

MMS beats the standard SMS text message as it adds animation, images, sound and video to a message sent from your phone.

What can you do with MMS?

  • Take digital photographs and store photographs on the Internet
  • Send and receive full colour pictures
  • Send and receive voice clips
  • Add a text message to your picture
  • Purchase pictures and sounds from the Internet
  • Have enhanced polyphonic ringtones

MMS runs over GPRS. You normally need to subscribe to a GPRS tariff, and have ‘Media Messaging’ enabled by your network operator. You will need a phone handset that supports the MMS service – If you receive an MMS message and don’t have a suitable handset or GPRS service, you’ll receive a standard SMS text message, and will be able to view the message at the web address included with the text message.

o2 Picture Messaging

Costs (o2 Online): Typically, sending an MMS over the o2 network costs 25p. Most of the o2 pay-monthly contracts come with a 500 text message or 125 MMS message bundle.

If you have received an MMS message that you can’t view from your o2 mobile, you can view this via o2’s website. Go to http://mediamessaging.o2.co.uk . You’ll need to log on to o2’s website using your standard o2 web logon. Once you’ve logged on, you’ll be able to access the message in the Media Messaging folders. If you don’t have an account with o2, you can register via www.o2.co.uk

To find out more, for more help with o2 settings, or to get hold of a smartphone with MMS, go to our dedicated o2 page

ASDA Mobile MMS settings

Useful MMS information

Here are details of how to configure a Windows Mobile device for sending and receiving MMS messages. Here we’re using a Windows Mobile XDA Orbit with o2’s MMS service:

  • Go to Start Messaging
  • Go to Menu Tools Options MMS
  • Move to the Server tab.
  • Add a new entry for the MMS server you’re after, and enter the details of the MMS gateway – The following screenshot is for o2’s MMS gateway. Make sure that ‘Connect Via’ corresponds to the MMS access point of your mobile operator (more )

Make sure you set the new MMS entry as default, using Set as Default , then exit the MMS options screen.

MMS Problems:

  • The phone: Make sure that your phone supports MMS. Most newer mobiles support MMS, but many older phones don’t. If in doubt, check in your phone’s manual, or go to your phone manufacturer’s website and check the specification of your phone.
  • The network: Make sure that your network operator has enabled MMS on your mobile phone account. They have to switch the service on, and it may take up to 48 hours for your SIM Card to receive the command to enable the service. Double-check that the service has definitely been enabled by contacting your network operator.
  • Settings: Make sure that you have configured MMS correctly. We list the settings for the UK operators on this page. You can also have the settings sent direct to your mobile phone (see the link below). Many network operators offer the ability to send settings to your phone via their website too.
  • Credit: MMS messages are more expensive than text messages. Ensure that you have enough credit or have not exceeded your MMS allowance.
  • Connection: Ensure that you’re using the right Multimedia Message GPRS Access Point , and that the data bearer is set to GPRS. MMS uses a different APN to WAP, so if WAP works and MMS doesn’t you could be trying to send MMS via your WAP gateway.

Oracle Built in Functions

There are two types of functions in Oracle.
1) Single Row Functions: Single row or Scalar functions return a value for every row that is processed in a query.
2) Group Functions: These functions group the rows of data based on the values returned by the query. This is discussed in SQL GROUP Functions. The group functions are used to calculate aggregate values like total or average, which return just one total or one average value after processing a group of rows.

There are four types of single row functions. They are:
1) Numeric Functions: These are functions that accept numeric input and return numeric values.
2) Character or Text Functions: These are functions that accept character input and can return both character and number values.
3) Date Functions: These are functions that take values that are of datatype DATE as input and return values of datatype DATE, except for the MONTHS_BETWEEN function, which returns a number.
4) Conversion Functions: These are functions that help us to convert a value in one form to another form. For Example: a null value into an actual value, or a value from one datatype to another datatype like NVL, TO_CHAR, TO_NUMBER, TO_DATE etc.

You can combine more than one function together in an expression. This is known as nesting of functions.

What is a DUAL Table in Oracle?
This is a single row and single column dummy table provided by oracle. This is used to perform mathematical calculations without using a table.

Select * from DUAL

Select 777 * 888 from Dual

1) Numeric Functions:

Numeric functions are used to perform operations on numbers. They accept numeric values as input and return numeric values as output. Few of the Numeric functions are:

As online content continues to be increasingly consumed through mobile platforms, it s no wonder we re seeing new formats to deliver information more quickly and fluidly. In the past, we ve seen Wibbitz present any news story as a visual and dynamic infographic instead of plain old text. But now Spritz believes that humans can read much faster using its system of streaming text at up to 600 words per minute.

Developed for smartphones and watches, the company has spent the last three years researching and trialling its system of what it calls text streaming . Based on the theory that most readers are slowed down in the information intake by the movements of the eye as it scans lines of text, Spritz squeezes entire novels into a small, 300 pixel-wide space and instead flashes each word for a brief fraction of a second. According to the developers, each word has an optimal recognition point — a letter that the eye searches for once it s jumped to that word in traditional text — and Spritz aligns all of its words around that letter, so it s in the same place each time.

The system, which can be trialled on the Spritz homepage, offers different speeds according to the abilities of each user. This is 250 words per minute:

This is 350 words per minute:

This is 500 words per minute:

While the system may seem overwhelming at first, those who master the higher speeds could boost their productivity immensely. Spritz is currently working to bring the technology to Samsung smartphones and its Galaxy Gear range, although a standalone app for other devices may not appear for a while yet. Are there other ways to reformat text for the web?
