How to share your Android phone's connection with Wi-Fi hotspot

Your Android phone is always connected to the Internet, but you might not know that your other devices can take advantage of it, too. If you’re traveling with a tablet or a laptop that only has a Wi-Fi chip, your Android phone can magically be transformed into a Wi-Fi hotspot that your cellular-challenged devices can use to get access to the Internet.

And it’s not hard to do. With just a few taps in the Settings app you’ll be able to securely broadcast your signal to any device that may need it, letting you work as if you were connected to your home Wi-Fi. There are a couple caveats, however. For one, you’ll be using your phone’s data, so you probably shouldn’t use it to stream movies or download large files. Furthermore, some carriers block the feature for certain plans, so if it you can’t get it to work you might need to call your wireless provider. And finally, it can be a major battery drain on your phone, so make sure you have a battery pack handy.


To start the setup process, head over to the Wireless & networks section of Settings. Click the three More dots below Data usage and you’ll see a section called Tethering & portable hotspot. Tap it and you’re in.

To find the Tethering and portable hotspot menu, tap More under Wireless & networks.
Inside you’ll find four options. The first is USB tethering, which requires a USB cable (it’ll be grayed out if one isn’t plugged in). To use it, simply connect your phone to your laptop via USB and toggle the switch to begin sharing your connection. If your plan supports it, an icon will appear in the quick settings pane and you’ll be ready to go.


Next up is Portable Wi-Fi hotspot. Toggle it on and you’ll see a message appear below it: Portable hotspot AndroidAP active. This will be the temporary name of your Wi-Fi network, and if you go to your laptop’s Wi-Fi pane, you’ll see AndroidAP in the list of available networks. Select it and you’ll be asked to fill in a password before it can connect.

You’ll be able to change the network name and password inside the Set up Wi-Fi hotspot settings.
For that, you’ll need to head to the third option, Set up Wi-Fi hotspot. Tap it and you’ll be able to edit the network SSID name, disable the WPA2 PSK security (which you absolutely do not want to do), and switch the band frequency from 2.5GHz to 5GHz. You’ll also be able to change the password (or write down the default one by checking the Show password box). After you’re done tweaking, press save and turn the hotspot back on to proceed. Then it’s just a matter of selecting the network (AndroidAP or whatever you’ve renamed it) on your other device, and typing in the auto-generated password or the one you’ve changed it to.
android hotspot3 Greenbot
You’ll need to pair your phone with your laptop or tablet before you can use Bluetooth tethering.
The final option is Bluetooth tethering, and it’s the same as USB tethering except without the cable. After you flip it on you’ll need to take a trip to Bluetooth settings on your laptop or tablet to pair it with your phone. Once you identify your phone in the Bluetooth pane, press Pair and then head over to the Bluetooth settings on your phone. If the two devices have been successfully linked, you’ll get matching verification codes that will allow the two devices to link. Select Pair when prompted and you’re on your way.

How to add custom ringtones to your Android phone

zedge ringtones
When you decided to go with Android, customization was probably at the top of the list. Many longtime Android devotees swear by the ability to change up every element of how their phone works.
So perhaps you want to extend that capability to ringtones. Sure, there are those sounds that come on your phone (we’ll show you how to tweak those, too) but you can also opt for music from your own sources. Here’s what you need to do.

Give the right permissions

You’re going to need to dig into the permissions. Get there by going to Settings > App Permissions > Storage. Then toggle on the setting for contacts.
storage permissions  
Toggle on the permission in Contacts.
This will allow you to pick a ringtone from outside the default list because you’ll be able to access your internal storage. One option is to save audio files to your phone, which you can do with a third-party app or by inserting a file to Drive and then saving it to your hardware storage.

Editing the ringtone

Now, head to Contacts. Touch the person who you want to edit, and then select the overflow menu (three vertical buttons) and you’ll see an option for where to get the sound from.

Editing options for contacts are available from the overflow menu.
Then, you can grab the image from storage. Alternatively, you can use a third-party app like Zedge and Ringtone Maker
zedge ringtones Greenbot
Zedge is a great tool for customizing your ringtone and other elements of your phone.
They allow you to tap into their database of ringtones and then to save you to your internal storage. 
Alternatively, you can use your own sound. If it’s in Google Drive, Dropbox, or another cloud service you’ll need to download it to your device so that you can access it from the contact editing menu. 
By assigning specific ringtones to individuals in your contacts, you’ll know right away who is calling. So that way you can rush to pick it up, or if it’s someone you’d rather not talk to, ignore.

How to get iOS-style VIP alerts in Gmail for Android

How to get iOS-style
Credit: Ben Patterso
Not everyone wants their Android phone to ding every time an email arrives. Many of us don’t even need Android alerts for every message that Gmail thinks is important.
Instead, you might want notifications only for email messages from your most important friends and loved ones—your VIPs, as it were.
Sounds like a great time for something like iOS’s handy VIP feature, but unfortunately, nothing quite like it exists for the Gmail app for Android. That said, there’s a relatively easy way to emulate it, as long as you’re willing to tinker with your Gmail settings in a desktop browser.

Creating a VIP filter in Gmail

First, visit Gmail in your desktop browser of choice, click the settings button (the one that’s shaped like a gear), then click the Filters and Blocked Addresses tab.
Next, click the Create a new filter link, which should pop up a new Filter window. In the From field, type in the name and/or email address of one of your closest contacts, or anyone whose incoming mail messages should trigger a special Android notification.

If you want to get fancy, you can narrow the filter to messages with a certain subject line (handy if, say, you want to know the moment a daily status report arrives), messages sent to a particular mailing address or group of addresses, only messages with attachments, or several other criteria.
When you’re ready, click the Create filter with this search link.

Now it’s time to tell Gmail what to do with messages that match our new filter. For our purposes, the most important box we want to check is Apply the label. Once you do, you’ll need to select New label from the drop-down menu, then type in a name, such as VIP.

If you wish, you could also add other actions to your VIP filter, such as starring matching messages, forwarding them, or marking them as Important. An option you’ll probably want to leave unchecked is Skip the inbox.

Once you’re all set, click the blue Create filter button.

To flag more contacts as VIPs, you have a couple of options. First, you could go back and create a new filter for each and every VIP contact. That may sound tedious, but you’ll get the benefit of Gmail’s auto-complete feature as you type in the name of each contact.

The second option: Add each contact’s address to the “From:” field of the same VIP filter, separated by “OR.” That’ll consolidate all your VIPs into a single Gmail filter, but you’ll have to type each contact’s entire email address by hand, without the benefit of auto-complete.
Gmail message with VIP label Ben Patterson
Gmail messages from your closest contacts will get stamped with the VIP label once you’ve added some email addresses to your VIP filter.
Once you’re all finished, any new messages arriving from your inner circle of contacts will automatically get tagged with a VIP label. Now it’s time to tell the Gmail app how to handle notifications for your new label.
Keep in mind that the filters you just created are for only one Gmail account; if you have other Gmail accounts that you use regularly, you may want to create separate filters for them, too.

Setting custom Android notifications for the VIP label

In its default state, Gmail for Android pushes out a notification for each new mail message you get, although it typically only fires off a sound alert for the first new inbox message. Any subsequent messages will trigger a silent notification banner.
There are many different ways you could handle notifications for your new VIP filter, but for now we’ll keep it simple: We’ll have Android alert you via notification and sound for each incoming VIP message.
Setting custom Android notifications for the VIP label Ben Patterson
You can set your custom VIP notifications to alert you with a been whenever a message from a close buddy arrives.
Open Gmail on your Android device, tap the three-line menu button in the top-left corner of the screen, scroll all the way down and tap Settings, then tap the username of your Gmail account. (And yes, if you have multiple Gmail accounts, you may need to repeat these steps multiple times).

Next, tap Manage Labels > VIP (or whatever name you assigned to your new label), then tap Sync messages to make sure Gmail is syncing messages for the label.

Now that label messages are getting synced, you’ll be able to turn on label notifications. Back on the Manage Labels screen, check the Label notifications box, then customize your settings. Because we’re doing notifications for your VIPs, you might want to check off such settings as Vibrate and Notify for every message.

You might also want to change your Inbox notification settings to something less intrusive. You could, for example, switch off the Notify for every message setting—or, if you really want some serenity, turn off Inbox notifications altogether.

All set? The next time one of your VIPs send you an email, you’ll get your custom VIP notification, and you’ll also notice that messages from your very important peeps will be stamped with a “VIP” label.

How to switch to Chrome's Material Design settings page for an easier experience.


Google is still hard at work on developing its Material Design overhaul for Chrome on PCs. About a year ago, we looked at how you can activate Material Design for Chrome’s settings page, and a few other parts of the browser. If you haven’t made that switch yet, I’d suggest that now is a good time to do it.
 Ian Paul
Chrome’s Material Design settings page.
A year ago, the Material Design look for the settings page was nice, but it wasn’t anything to get excited about. That has since changed.
In my opinion, the Material Design look for the Chrome settings page now makes it much easier to view and understand the browser’s various options. The actual wording of each setting hasn’t changed much (if at all). The overall look, however, is much simpler and more organized.

To get started, type chrome://flags/#enable-md-settings into Chrome’s address bar and hit Enter. The setting, entitled Enable Material Design settings, should now be highlighted. Click the drop-down menu, which should currently say Default, and select Enabled. A Relaunch Now button will appear at the bottom of the page; click that to restart the browser.

When Chrome comes back, click the menu icon in the upper-right corner (the three vertical dots), and select Settings from the drop-down menu. The result should be what you see above, with an overall look similar to the Google Account settings page.
Ian Paul
The menu in Chrome’s Material Design settings page.
At the top of the settings page is a bold blue header with a “hamburger” menu icon on the left and a large, prominent search box at the top. Click the menu icon and a panel pops out from the left allowing you to navigate quickly to the major sections of Chrome’s settings including the Advanced options.
The search box, meanwhile, is another way to quickly find what you’re looking for. Type a query and the search results automatically generate as you type, allowing you to jump to any part of the settings menu.

If you prefer to look through the settings manually, below the blue header there is a single column of settings. The various options aren’t all that different, but the new design makes it easier to read and understand what each setting does.

If you’re a regular Chrome user it’s well worth your time to enable the new look, and while you’re at it try chrome://flags/#enable-md-extensions for an overhauled Extensions page.

12 Main Reasons Why Your Business Needs a Blog or To Take Your Blogging To Next Level.


Here are the 12 main reasons I think your company should invest in blogging, or take your current blogging activities to the next level. Oftentimes these reasons are also used as the starting point for convincing your executives to make an investment in blogging:

1. Blogs are an easy-to-use CMS (aka content management system).

Blogs require limited training and/or technical skill to use while providing flexibility to update or modify content quickly. As an added bonus, blogs are inexpensive.

2. Blogs are part of a company’s owned media.

Blog content is owned by your organization and can be integrated into your website. Unlike other third-party and social media outposts, you don’t need to worry about whether they’ll disappear or go out of business. A blog can serve in lieu of a website.

3. Blogs provide branded context for your content.

As part of your firm’s owned media, blogs offer a branded context for your communications through the use of blog design elements that can be exported with the content. You can extend your brand without paying for third party media.

4. Blogs integrate your brand into your content marketing.

Beyond the blog’s branded context, blogs create a blog personality with a unique voice. They offer communications transparency and the opportunity to write in a conversational tone that makes your brand feel “human”.

Just be sure to avoid content that is clearly self-promotional, and ensure your blog personality is integrated with your brand personality across other social media platforms.

5. Blogs enhance search optimization.

Through their keyword-rich content, architecture and cross-linking to other content on the Web, blogs support search optimization efforts. (Note: This assumes you’re using your own domain not a free third party blogging platform. Like Blogspot or wordpress)

6. Blogs are a 24/7 communication platform.

With increased need for real-time communications, blogs are a great place to quickly publish favorable content about your brand or respond to evolving issues. Plug-in software can automate your editorial calendar.

7. Blogs support an array of media formats.

For distributing branded content, blogs simplify the uploading and management of text, photographs, graphics, videos, audio, presentations and PDFs. When creating offine content and events, consider what kind of online content can go on your blog.

8. Blogs facilitate content distribution through multiple channels.

Blogs can expand your message delivery through email and RSS feeds at no additional cost. Blog posts can also be automatically collected into email digests.

9. Blogs supply content for social media interactions.

Blog content is currency for social media engagement on social sharing sites such as Twitter and Facebook. Make sure to include icons and tailored calls-to-action.

(Remember, these shares translate to earned media impressions (aka free.)

10. Blogs provide a targeted location to direct prospects and customers.

With a URL or QR code you can direct prospects, customers and the public to your blog from other forms of content marketing. This gives you a way to connect the various components across platforms.

11. Blogs are fexible enough to support diverse initiatives.

Blogs can help companies achieve a variety of corporate goals, such as providing product-related content, answering customer questions, attracting new prospects and hosting an executive platform.

12. Blogs provide metrics that you can use to track content marketing to business goals.

As with any business strategy, it’s critical to monitor your progress. There are a variety of metrics to assess your blog’s effectiveness.


To sum up, putting a blog at the center of your content marketing strategy is a sound idea.

It provides a branded environment that’s optimal for your content and aligned with your corporate goals.

Even better is the flexibility that blogs provide and their ability to be integrated into your social media strategy.

How to fill out and sign digital documents on Android

adobe signature 
You’re out with friends and then it hits you: Those loan documents you’ve been waiting to sign finally arrive in your email. And they’re due today!
You don’t have to run back home or to the office to sign, print, scan, and email them back. That’s because you have the capability to sign the files right away from your Android phone. One excellent solution for this is Adobe Fill & Sign DC.
adobe fill
Grab that file you need for a quick signature.
It’s one of several Adobe apps that handle this function, but it’s the most straightforward if you want to be able to sign something quickly and not have to fiddle with too many account settings.
You’re able to import a document from your downloads, or take a picture and use the app to fill out the boxes and add a signature. Then, scribble on the screen with your finger, or a stylus if you’re using a device like the Galaxy Note 5.
adobe signature
Add in your John Hancock and be on your way.
The app is free, but to save the item to Adobe’s cloud storage you’ll need to register for an account.
It wouldn’t be surprising to see Google eventually build in this type of capability with Drive, but for now this app is probably your strongest solution. If this app isn’t to your liking, then Fill and Sign PDF or DocuSign are also viable solutions.

How To Create A Rotating Advertisement Banners For Your Website With Javascript.

I know as a webmaster or a blogger you are interested in making money with your website or blogs by showing advertisements to our visitors and maybe the advert spaces in your page is limited, well if that s the case this tutorial will show you how to rotate those  advertisements banners in your webpages to save you your limited ad spaces.


Displaying banners ads is a common practice for showing advertisements on webpages to the visitors. Banners ads are normally created using standard graphic tools such as Photoshop, Painbrush Pro and other software. Banner ads can be static or animated. Animated images are animated GIF files or flash movies. Flash movies are created using Macromedia flash and the browsers must have installed flash plugin to view the movies. On the other hand, you can create some animated effect using JavaScript, like rotating static banner ads at a  certain time interval.

  •  Creating Rotating Banner Ads

Rotating banners ads comprises several banner images that constantly rotate on a webpage at a fix time interval. You can create these banner images using standard graphics tools. Let’s create four banner images and name them as RollingGist1.jpg, RollingGist2.jpg, RollingGist3.jpg and RollingGist4.jpg

The JavaScript starts by declaring an array to store the banner images using the new Array keywords, as follows:

MyBanners=new Array(‘RollingGist1.jpg’,’RollingGist2.jpg’,’RollingGist3.jpg’,’RollingGist4.jpg’)

Each element in the array is assigned with an index, starting from 0. In our example, RollingGist1.jpg is assigned with index 0, RollingGist2.jpg is assigned with index 1, RollingGist3.jpg is assigned with index 2 and RollingGist4.jpg is assigned with index 3.

To track the index of the current banner, we can assign the index to a variable. Here we use the variable banner, and initialize it with a value 0 to load the first banner image.

Next we create a function ShowBanners which will display all the banner images at fix interval. This can be achieved by incrementing the index values using the statement  banner++  and when the index value is equal to the total number of elements in the array(denoted by MyBanners.length), the index value is set back to 0, which is the index of the first banner.
if (banner==MyBanners.length) {

The process is repeated at a fix time interval using the setTimeout ( ) function. The setTimeout ( ) function comprises two arguments, the first is the function to be activated, i.e the ShowBanners ( ) function and the second one is the duration measured in milliseconds , therefore 1000 is equivalent to 1 second so 5000 is equal to 5 seconds.

The final part of the JavaScript is to to call out the ShowBanners ( ) function using the onload method

The Script

<script language=”Javascript”>

MyBanners=new Array(‘RollingGist1.jpg’,’RollingGist2.jpg’,’RollingGist3.jpg’,’RollingGist4.jpg’)
function ShowBanners()
{ if (document.images)
{ banner++
if (banner==MyBanners.length) {
<body onload=”ShowBanners()”>
<img src=”banner1.jpg” width=”900″ height=”120″ name=”ChangeBanner”/>

 2 Creating Rotating Banner Ads with URL Links

Creating rotating banner images will provide the visitor to your webpage with some basic information. However, if you want  the visitor to get more information by clicking on the banner images, you need to create rotating banner ads that contain URL links.

The script is basically the same as the previous one but we need to add another array that comprises the links, as follows:

MyBannerLinks=new Array(‘URL1′,’URL2′,’URL3/’,’URL4/’)

You need to make sure that the arrangement of the links are in corresponding order with the banner images in the first array. Next, we create the ShowLinks function to link the current banner image to the relevant URL and then assign the URL to the href atrribute of the anchor tag.

To load the banner images with URL links, we insert an anchor tag within the <body></body> section before the <img> tag that displays the current banner image. The anchor tag’s attribute  href is used to call the ShowLinks( ) function when the visitor clicks on the banner.

The Script

<script language=”Javascript”>

MyBanners=new Array(‘RollingGist11.jpg’,’RollingGist2.jpg’,’RollingGist3.jpg’,’RollingGist4.jpg’)
MyBannerLinks=new Array(‘http://www.ebiraland.com/’,’http://rollinggist.blogspot.com/’,’http://binoosmart.blogspot.com/’,’http://www.ebiraland.com/’)
function ShowLinks(){

function ShowBanners()
{ if (document.images)
{ banner++
if (banner==MyBanners.length) {
<body onload=”ShowBanners()”>
<a href=”javascript: ShowLinks()”>
<img src=”RollingGist1.jpg” width=”900″ height=”120″ name=”ChangeBanner”/></a>

Introduction to HTML, Learn The Concepts Of HTML Code.

1 What is HTML

HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language that is used to write web pages and build Websites. It has the ability to bring together text, pictures, sounds, video and links all in one place! HTML files are plain-text files, so they can be edited using standard editors such as notepad and wordpad and thery are stored with the extensions .html, .htm or .shtml. A webpage written in HyperText Markup Language can be viewed using browsers such as Mozilla Firefox , Google’s Chrome, Safari, Opera ,IE  and more. The reason why HyperText Markup Language is the standard formatting tool for WWW is that it is cross platforms, meaning that it can be viewed through different types of computers and mobile devices with different operating system such as the Mainframes, Apple computers, the UNIX system ,the popular IBM compatible PCs, smart phones and tablets running on Android OS, Apple IOS, Microsoft’s windows phone and more. It is sort of a common Internet language. The newest version is HTML5.

2 HTML Structure

An HTML ( HTML5) document is divided into two parts, the head and the body. The head of the document contains the document’s title and other information, and the body contains the contents and everything else. The body is the larger part of the document, as the body of a letter you would write to a friend would be. Elements are used to describe and format an HTML document, each element describes different document content. An example of an element is <head>, which comprises and open tag written as <head>, its content and an end tag written as </head>. An HTML document must always begin with a <!DOCTYPE html> .  DOCTYPE is a declaration that defines the document type. We will discuss tags in more details in next two lessons. 
Example 1.1<!DOCTYPE html>
<html> <head><title>HyperText Markup Language Tutorial</title>
<meta http-equiv=”Content-Languagecontent=”en-us“>
<meta name=”descriptioncontent=”Welcome to HyperText Markup Language Tutorial”>
