What Makes Duromine so Famous and Potent?

Duromine is famous because it works. The active ingredient in it is known as Phentermine. It helps in decreasing weight rapidly by controlling your urge to eat, increasing your metabolic rate and overall giving you more energy so that you can do more exercise. It has been used for decades by people who wanted to rapidly decrease their body weight without a high amount of side effects. A huge part of today’s population is obese; decreasing a few pounds here and there is easy but when it comes to severe weight loss, only diet and exercise are seldom enough. This is when people start relying on supplements which help them loose their weight and start a healthy lifestyle.

The working process

All pills which have Phentermine as their active ingredient work in a very similar way. They stop you from feeling hungry. The whole point behind this process is that if you don’t feel hungry, your appetite would be lessened; so you will eat a lot less and the fewer calories you eat, the more your body has to burn from its fat reserves. Users claim that after using Duromine they felt a lot less hunger during the whole day and their cravings had stopped. They were far less inclined to have fast food and high calorie beverages. Duromine capsules are widely available and you should go and buy them if you are one of the thousands who want to reduce their overall body weight. Being obese has a number of side effects and this can help prevent those.

Using Duromine for best results

Duromine is designed to be a quick weight loosing pill. It is highly recommended that you take this drug responsibly and never go beyond the recommended dosage. If you maintain a healthy diet and do moderate exercise then you can lose as much as 3-5 pounds per week during the usage cycle. Usually a Duromine prescription cycle is of 3 months; during this period you can lose 20 pounds or more just by following a basic schedule. The effects show up very early during the cycle. You will see massive weight loss during the first half of the cycle and then it’ll taper off.

The side effects

Duromine is a drug which influences the central nervous system and stops you from feeling hunger; so there are some side effects which accompany its usage in most cases. Some of the common side effects are increased energy, trouble while trying to fall asleep, sex drive changes, unpleasant taste and dry mouth, restlessness and headaches. It is advised that you lay off alcohol during the usage period because it enhances these effects. Taking the pill in the morning solves the insomnia problem to a certain degree.

Where you can buy

Buying Duromine is very easy. It is readily available online and offline. The price is a bit high but the product is well worth it. Duromine capsules are prescribed if you are obese and you should follow that prescription carefully. Although you can get great deals on the black market, you should stay away from them.

BlackBerry KEYone, the ‘Last Smartphone Designed by BlackBerry’, Launched at MWC 2017 for $549

Ahead of the official commencement of MWC 2017, the BlackBerry KEYone – the “last phone designed and engineered in-house by BlackBerry” – was launched by the Canadian company. The new BlackBerry KEYone sports the physical keyboard that once made the company an icon, albeit with several major upgrades. BlackBerry’s latest smartphone becomes available beginning April 2017 and will be priced at $549 (roughly Rs. 38,600) in the US, GBP 499 (roughly Rs. 41,400) in the UK, and EUR 599 (roughly Rs. 42,100) in Europe.

BlackBerry KEYone, the 'Last Smartphone Designed by BlackBerry', Launched at MWC 2017 for $549

The Canadian company in September announced its decision to end smartphone design and production, and instead license the brand to partners such as TCL.

BlackBerry is touting KEYone’s Smart Keyboard, which has a fingerprint sensor on the spacebar as well as capacitive touch on the entire keyboard for scrolling. You can ‘Flick’ predictions using the BlackBerry KEYone keyboard, and also assign shortcuts to keys (such as press B for browser) for use with a press or a long-press.

The new BlackBerry KEYone runs Android 7.1 Nougat software with the company’s numerous productivity and security optimisations on top, such as the BlackBerry Hub and DTEK security monitoring app.

BlackBerry KEYone Hardware Specifications
Coming to BlackBerry KEYone specifications, the smartphone sports a 4.5-inch full-HD (1620×1080 pixels) IPS display with a pixel density of 433ppi and Corning Gorilla Glass 4. The phone gets additional durability with its aluminium frame. The all-new BlackBerry KEYone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 octa-core SoC clocked at 2GHz, coupled with 3GB of RAM and an Adreno 506 GPU.

As for the camera, BlackBerry KEYone bears a 12-megapixel rear camera with a Sony IMX378 sensor – the same acclaimed sensor as the one on the Google Pixel – that has 1.55-micron pixels. For imaging, this smartphone also bears an 8-megapixel front facing camera with a wide-angle lens and a flash module.

BlackBerry KEYone offers 32GB of inbuilt storage that is expandable via microSD card (up to 2TB). The new KEYone comes with standard set of connectivity options, including 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth v4.2, NFC, 3.5mm headphone jack, and a USB Type-C port. It runs on a 3505mAh battery that’s said to give all-day battery life and support QuickCharge 3.0 with a ‘Boost’ charging feature that gives 50 percent charge in “roughly 36 minutes.”

Announcing the KEYone, BlackBerry on its blog said, “KEYone pairs the best of BlackBerry software and security with TCL’s commitment to delivering high-quality, reliable smartphones to markets around the world. And we are very enthusiastic about how our long-term partnerships with TCL and our other partners, BB Merah Putih in Indonesia and Optiemus for the Indian sub-continent, will ensure availability of BlackBerry-branded smartphones to every corner of the world.”

LG G6 at MWC 2017: How to Watch Live Stream and Everything We Know So Far

LG G6 is all set to launch at MWC 2017, with LG finally taking the wraps of its 2017 flagship. The device is set to be water and dust resistant, have a large display real estate, and will boast a dual camera setup at the back. LG’s MWC event is scheduled to begin at 12pm CET (4:30pm IST) on Sunday, and users worldwide will be able to watch the event live.

LG G6 at MWC 2017: How to Watch Live Stream and Everything We Know So Far

How to watch LG G6 live stream
LG’s event will be live streamed on its YouTube channel here. If you’re watching the stream, we recommend you to be in a strong Wi-Fi connection for seamless broadcast. Gadgets 360 will also be on ground zero covering the event as it happens.

Just a few days ago, tipster Evan Blass gave us official renders of the LG G6 revealing what the phone is expected to look like. The device has an almost bezel-less front with no Home Button seen anywhere. The fingerprint scanner is situated at the back, right below the dual camera setup. The back has a glossy black finish, and appears to be all-glass, appearing set to take on the iPhone 7’s Jet Black colour variant. The antenna band is seen on the metal edges with the volume buttons housed on the right edge. The form factor is said to be the same as the predecessor LG G5, but the display real estate has increased resulting to a 5.7-inch display. In comparison, the LG G5 just had a 5.3-inch panel.

The LG G6 will sport a new UX 6.0 with many tweaks. Notably, the Camera UI will completely be changed and will have a new square capture mode which will allow you to click and preview square-shaped images on one screen (thanks to more room on display). It is also going to be water and dust resistant, as teased by LG earlier, and will come with wireless charging capabilities.

As mentioned, the LG G6 has been teased extensively in the past, and the company has already confirmed a large bezel-less display. The device is expected to sport a 5.7-inch QHD (1440×2880 pixels) display with an aspect ratio of 18:9 and pixel density of 564ppi. The smartphone was expected to sport the latest Snapdragon 835 SoC, but now it is tipped to come with a Snapdragon 821 SoC as Samsung has grabbed the rights to first launch the processor with the Galaxy S8.

As for optics, the LG G6 will sport a Leica branded dual camera setup at the back (two 13-megapixel lenses), and is expected to offer a 125-degree wide-angle view at the back. A fresh teaser confirms this, while also further goes on to say that the setup won’t bulge out of the frame, and will sit in line – which means no camera bump. It is expected to pack a battery larger than 3200mAh. It is also tipped to come in White, Black, and Platinum Colour Options. The big highlight is rumoured Google Assistant integration, making it the only the smartphone to come with it, apart from the Pixel devices launched last year.

According to an earlier report, the LG G6 is expected to priced in the same vicinity as its predecessor – somewhere between $500 to $600 (roughly Rs. 34,000 to Rs.41,000).

There is no official word on release date, but we expect it to hit main markets like the US, and Europe soon after unveil. We are just hours away from the official launch, where the pricing, availability, release date, and specifications will all be officially unveiled.

How to Prevent Water Damage in Your Home

Water damage is known to occur in residential homes and can destroy the personal belongings that are on the property. In many cases, it can also lead to mold, which can affect the health of residents. To reduce the risk of water damage, there are a few important steps to take as a homeowner.

Image result for Safe your belongings from water

Clean Your Rain Gutters

Many people fail to clean their rain gutters throughout the year, which can cause rainwater to become backed up on the roof. This places excess pressure on the structure and can lead to leaks that develop. Make it a point to remove leaves and twigs from the gutters to promote proper water flow away from the building.

Inspect the Roof

Hire a professional to inspect the roof once a year and identify any areas where leaks are present. The roofer will seal the leaks by applying roofing cement underneath the roofing material. Tiles or shingles that are missing will also be replaced to ensure that the roof deck is protected. This includes inspecting the flashing that is installed on chimneys or vents to ensure that the roof is properly sealed from moisture.

Test the Sump Pump

The sump pump should be tested on a regular basis by filling the pit with water to ensure that the float is visible. The water levels fall after a few seconds after the float appears. The backup pump should also be tested after the main pump is unplugged.

Look for Leaks

Leaks that go undetected are one of the most common causes of water damage, making it important to inspect the property for water that is visible. Look for dark spots that have developed under sink cabinets or stains that have developed on the ceilings. Check to see if the toilets rock or are dripping.

Use a Drain Snake

A drain snake is more effective at fixing clogged pipes instead of relying on unclogging chemicals. Chemicals can eat away at the pipes that can eventually lead to water damage. If you notice persistent leaks and have water damage that occurs, it’s important to file a claim with an insurance claims adjuster to repair or replace damaged materials.

When you want to protect your home and prevent water damage, you’ll need to remain proactive with the steps that are taken with inspecting your home. Hire professionals to diagnose issues and be aware of moisture that develops in the attic or under sinks.

WhatsApp Appoints Facebook’s Matt Idema as COO to Boost Monetisation: Report

WhatsApp has been providing its service free to all its users worldwide ever since launch. The IM app does not make money through ads like Instagram and Facebook either, so naturally, it is looking for alternate and innovative ways to monetise its extremely popular service soon. To do that, WhatsApp has reportedly appointed Facebook executive Matt Idema as their new COO.

WhatsApp Appoints Facebook's Matt Idema as COO to Boost Monetisation: Report

According to a Recode report, Idema was announced as the newly appointed COO on Tuesday, and “monetisation will be his key focus.” However, his full role is reportedly still being ironed out. Idema was Vice President of Product Marketing at Facebook, his LinkedIn profile still notes, responsible for “product strategy and global go-to-market for all of Facebook’s Advertising and Business Products.” The report adds that Idema will begin his new role at WhatsApp in the coming weeks and will report directly to WhatsApp CEO Jan Koum.

WhatsApp waived off its nominal annual subscription fee last January, and wrote on its blog that it will look at alternate methods to monetise. “Starting this year, we will test tools that allow you to use WhatsApp to communicate with businesses and organisations that you want to hear from. That could mean communicating with your bank about whether a recent transaction was fraudulent, or with an airline about a delayed flight. We all get these messages elsewhere today – through text messages and phone calls – so we want to test new tools to make this easier to do on WhatsApp, while still giving you an experience without third-party ads and spam,” Koum wrote in the post.

Inside WhatsApp’s code, many references to structured messages for business and ‘enterprise’ have also been found, the most notable one being the translation of these messages to the user’s local language. What this means is that WhatsApp Enterprise could launch soon, which means businesses could use this feature to send messages to their targeted audiences directly through WhatsApp. These messages could arrive via push notifications, and presumably, could be disabled if the user so prefers. Of course in the absence of any official announcement, this is all speculation at this point.

However, Idema’s appointment could mean that he would oversee the development of the rumoured WhatsApp Enterprise, and scale up the team if the need be. Currently, WhatsApp has around 200 employees, and caters to over 1 billion users globally. With these monetisation measures, WhatsApp looks to finally become a revenue-making vertical, as it hasn’t been making any money since its inception in 2014.

However, the biggest USP of the app is its ad-free and spam-free nature, and WhatsApp will have to really be innovative to not break that USP and still figure out ways to make money. There’ll be more clarity on how WhatsApp plans to monetise once it starts testing tools in beta.

LG G6 Dust and Water Resistance Teased; Will Sport Battery Larger Than 3200mAh

LG has shared another teaser for the G6 flagship smartphone which promotes water and dust proof feature. The new teaser is part of the company’s several teasers that have surfaced on the Internet in past few weeks promoting several features like reliability, integration of an AI assistant on the flagship, and a ‘big screen that fits’.

LG G6 Dust and Water Resistance Teased; Will Sport Battery Larger Than 3200mAh

The latest teaser has been shared with Pocketnow and says “resist more under pressure” which seemingly confirms water and dust proof capability on the LG G6. The teaser image also has a tagline that says “witness the next-generation smartphone brought to you first by LG.” Based on initial leaks and official teasers released by LG, the G6 flagship is widely expected to come with IP68 certification. Though, the new teaser may point to something related to “extra-durable build,” points out Pockenow.

Separately, a South Korean report has claimed that LG G6 will pack a large capacity battery which will be over 15 percent more capacity than the previous LG G5. The report quotes a senior LG executive who said, “The G6 is equipped with a high capacity battery of more than 3200mAh.” The LG G5 came with a 2800mAh battery which was comparatively smaller than 3000mAh on the LG G4.

LG recently announced ‘Preliminary Experiment Group’ for select users in South Korea. Under the company’s group, limited users will receive the G6 later this month ‘free of cost.’ We will have to wait till LG’s February 26 event to see what the company has in stores for consumers.

LG’s G6 flagship smartphone will be unveiled at the company’s February 26 event which will begin at 4.30pm IST (12.00pm CET).

Hype Video Broadcast App Has Niche Potential

The folks who brought Vine into the world last month introduced a new video broadcasting app called “Hype.”

Available for free from Intermedia Labs in Apple’s iTunes App Store, Hype not only allows users to broadcast live to the Internet, but also lets followers interact with their broadcasts in real time.

Some of the other things users can do with the app:

  • Replay a broadcast after it’s over;
  • Share broadcasts on Twitter;
  • Add “sparkles” to a broadcast to reveal viewers’ thoughts;
  • Share viewer comments with others watching a broadcast;
  • Customize broadcast backgrounds; and
  • Present slideshows made from photos and videos on a camera roll in a broadcast.

Enriched Broadcasts

At first blush, it might seem that Hype’s offering closely mirrors Periscope and Facebook Live, but that’s not the case, said Jack Kent, a senior analyst for mobile media at IHS Markit.

“Hype is offering a number of innovations around personalizing the broadcast — adding graphics and images, which are similar to those offered by other messaging and photo apps but not yet part of live broadcasts,” he told TechNewsWorld.

 Hype Interactive Live Video

Rich content and interactivity set Hype apart from its rivals, observed Charles King, principal analyst at Pund-IT.

“One of Hype’s biggest differentiators is support for mixed media, so during live streaming broadcasters can patch in preprepared content to enrich the overall event,” he told TechNewsWorld.

Meanwhile, broadcast viewers can express their opinion of it with their sparkles — stars that serve a purpose similar as hearts in Periscope.

“Broadcasters can dynamically respond to those inputs, thus enriching the event, and the app keeps a tab on those interactions,” King said.

Hype also allows users to push broadcasts and replays out to their Twitter and Facebook feeds, he added.

Gaining an Audience

Capturing an audience for Hype will be challenging for founders Colin Kroll, Rus Yusupov and Dominik Hofmann.

“The live video broadcast space is already very competitive and dominated by Twitter’s Periscope and Facebook Live,” IHS Markit’s Kent pointed out.

“Without being able to piggyback onto a platform of hundreds of millions of users, Hype will have to look for differentiated features to acquire users outside its much bigger platform rivals,” he noted.

One way to do that might be to focus on niche areas as a way to build an engaged standalone community, Kent said.

One possible niche market could be commercial broadcasters of live events, suggested Pund-IT’s King.

“The richness of features that Hype supports could also make it useful for broadcasting commercial or corporate events,” he said. “Those could include anything from live music performances to public lectures to business conferences.”

The ability to wrap other media into a broadcast could be very valuable, particularly in the branded content space, noted Eric Galen, a social media attorney with Greenberg Glusker.

“But brands don’t care about the functionality of an app until it has a big audience,” he told TechNewsWorld.

Avoid Dying on the Vine

Ironically, the Hype team was rolling out its new app just as Twitter was axing Vine, the 6-second video app it purchased in 2012.

Two things moved Twitter to kill Vine, said Jan Dawson, chief analyst at Jackdaw Research.

The app was hard to monetize, and it didn’t fit in with Twitter’s new focus on news and what’s live, he told TechNewsWorld.

“Twitter wants to be the live platform — the platform for seeing what’s happening right now,” Dawson said.

“They’re extending that into video with all their deals with Bloomberg, the NFL and so on, but live is the broad strategy behind a lot of what Twitter is doing at the moment,” he explained.

“If Twitter had been in better financial health and didn’t need to make cuts, Vine might well have survived,” Dawson added, “but it’s just too obvious a place to make cuts, given Twitter’s strategic priorities right now.”

Twitter could have done a better job of supporting Vine in the face of competition from larger and better-funded rivals, Pund-IT’s King noted.

That’s certainly why Vine’s founders appear to have regretted its sale to Twitter, IHS’ Kent said, “but if they want to remain independent with their new venture — or ensure it is a long-term success, independent or otherwise — they will need to not only acquire users but also have a clear path to monetization.”

Conspiracy Theories in the Information Age, Part 2

In the past, heightened rhetoric and propaganda were the tools of choice for those looking to convince an electorate to vote them into office, and conspiracy theories were their bane. This election season has seen the rise of a new form of persuasion, one that’s unique to the Information Age.

For months, WikiLeaks creator Julian Assange had promised to rain bombshells on the narrowing field of presidential candidates, and he indicated that Hillary Clinton would be the target of the release. Rumors had swirled around the secrets the former secretary of state might have wanted to protect when she deleted more than 30,000 emails from a private server.

As the U.S. celebrated Independence Day, WikiLeaks released the first batch of emails, and the fireworks began. Nothing in the emails proved particularly damaging for Clinton’s presidential aspirations, though.

WikiLeaks had released troves of sensitive information in the past, so at first glance its actions represented nothing new. However, that particular series of leaks was about to introduce much of the world to a new form of propaganda.


The Tainted Well

During the Cold War, authoritarian regimes had their own mouthpieces, along with enough control over the populace to stomp out dissenting voices, noted Mark Fenster, a professor at the University of Florida and author of Conspiracy Theories: Secrecy and Power in American Culture.

“They were organs of the state, and they spoke about whatever it was the government wanted to speak about,” he told TechNewsWorld. “Those were obviously perfect means of distributing propaganda — particularly if the government was also able to suppress any other voices from making it to the public.”

With the rise of the Internet, it became difficult to drown out competing voices. From the delivery of “paquetes” of digitized American culture in Cuba to hacktivism in China, the Internet has provided tools that make it next to impossible for any government to silence its critics completely, or to screen outside ideas from their view.

“We’ve got an interesting experiment going on right now,” Fenster said in an interview conducted prior to last week’s election, “if the allegations are true that Russian hackers, ordered by the Russian government, got hold of email documents from [Clinton campaign manager] John Podesta, the DNC and the Clinton campaign, and are releasing them collectively to in order to manipulate the election for their preferred candidate: Donald Trump.”

The cache of Clinton campaign documents might not have been as devastating as Assange initially indicated, but it undoubtedly added a new dimension to this election season and introduced the public to what might be called the “tainted well.”

“This isn’t propaganda in the classic since,” Fenster said, “but it is a way of trying to shape government opinion.”

Because of the positive adjectives Pressident-Elect Donald Trump used to describe Russian leader Vladimir Putin during the campaign, speculation grew that the leaked emails were intended specifically to damage Clinton’s chances.

However, it is still not clear that Russia — even if it did commission the hacks — aimed to sway the election toward Trump. Russia might have been trying to prevent either candidate from having a mandate upon taking office, suggested Rob Enderle, principal analyst at the Enderle Group, in a conversation prior to the election.

I think “Russia isn’t trying to promote either candidate at the moment, it is operating to ensure that neither of them will be able to actually govern if elected, operating under a broad strategy of discrediting the government and effectively fermenting revolt,” he told TechNewsWorld.

Please Sir, More Propaganda

Whatever the true motives of the leaks and their possible sponsors might have been, it’s indisputable that the Internet has created a world that’s ripe for and receptive to propaganda in many forms — from ads many try to avoid, to stories that gain attention through votes cast by mouse clicks and screen taps.

“Even if unintentional, online news services currently track interests and serve up news based on those interests,” noted Enderle.

During the latest election cycle, for instance, liberal and conservative voters received very different news streams, he pointed out, so their perceptions of the world were very different. It helped to massively polarize the two views.

Just as social media metrics have advanced to help marketers serve up relevant ads at the moment consumers are primed to purchase goods or services, those same tools can be used to dish out fake or heavily biased news, according to Enderle.

“Confirmation bias already teaches we are very vulnerable to this type of manipulation, and this same methodology is largely used for telephone and Internet scams,” he observed.

While there are few governments that grip as tightly as North Korea does these days, states still use propaganda for good and bad, according to University of Florida’s Fenster.

Governments use propaganda all of the time, he said.

“They do so by publishing information on their websites or releasing information to the press and NGOs to report on,” Fenster noted. “Oftentimes, governments have their own public relations offices that might not be named as such but work the same.”

There are times when governments turn to conspiracy theories as a form of propaganda, suggested Richard W. Lachmann, a professor of comparative/historical sociology and political sociology at the University of Albany.

“Whenever a country is losing a war, there always are conspiracy theories to explain the loss,” he told TechNewsWorld.

When it comes to propagating propaganda about war, it’s common for governments to spin webs about traitors, he added.

Most famously, there was “the ‘stab in the back’ conspiracy theory in Germany at the end of World War I, when many Germans came to believe that their defeat was due to Jewish traitors in Germany rather than to the manpower and weapons edge of the Allies,” Lachmann said.

In the Information Age, there’s a new way to tell war stories that favor one side over the other. Dip from a tainted well and offer a drink to a world that’s thirsty for information.

Facebook, Google, Others Launch Drive Against Fake News in France

Social media companies Facebook, Google and a group of news organisations launched an initiative on Monday to tackle fake news stories in France, with the media in the spotlight as the country’s presidential election approaches.

Facebook, Google, Others Launch Drive Against Fake News in France

Facebook said it would work with several leading French news organisations, including Agence France-Presse, BFM TV, and newspapers L’Express and Le Monde to ensure that false news items were not published on its platform.

Google also said it was part of the initiative, dubbed “Cross Check” by the partners.

Facebook has faced criticism that it did not do enough to prevent false information being republished on its platform during last year’s US presidential campaign, and in response has set up measures to try to tackle the problem.

There have been similar concerns that people could disseminate false information on Facebook in the build-up to the French election, which takes place in April and May.

In the United States, Facebook has said users would in future find it easier to flag fake articles as a hoax, and added that it will work with organizations such as fact-checking website Snopes, ABC News and the Associated Press to check the authenticity of stories.

Last month, Facebook also set up an initiative against fake news in Germany, where government officials had expressed concerns that false stories and hate speech online could influence a parliamentary election in September in which chancellor Angela Merkel will seek a fourth term in office.
