So if you need to urgently charge your phone in an emergency or the factory charger it came with doesn't work anymore, you can get any cheap version that’s compatible with your smartphone. -If you simply shut your device off from time to time, nothing dramatic will happen. In fact, some devices may actually start working more effectively after you reboot them. -Feel free to charge your phone even if the battery is as full as 90%.

If You See Clothes On Your Car, Don't Touch It And Drive Away!

New scams come out every month or even every week and you don’t want to risk falling for them and lose your money, car, or even get seriously injured. New scams are often advanced variations of some long-running criminal schemes, but they’re sometimes new and pretty ingenious. In any case, being aware of these popular tricks will allow you to protect yourself and your loved ones so that nobody falls victim to these criminals. A seemingly misplaced garment on your windshield is actually a new con being used by muggers and thieves. It works like this: if you see some random piece of clothing that prevents your wipers from moving or obscures your view, your first reaction will be to remove it, of course. But while you’re distracted untying it or trying to get it off, the criminal has plenty of time to jump you. The deceivers are sometimes women pretending to be pregnant. The thing is that even store security guards usually overlook women with big baby bumps, considering them no threat and innocent by default. Scammers take advantage of this and easily get away with committing petty crimes like pickpocketing or shoplifting. Something resembling a Roman numeral “two” on your door means that the homeowners are rich, so the place is a great target. On the other hand, a crossed circle tells other burglars that there's nothing valuable to take from the house. A long horizontal rectangle divided into 4 parts means the place has a big aggressive guard dog. Sometimes criminals can even pretend to be… your victim! To do this, they might throw themselves at your car as you back out of a parking spot or something of the like. Of course, they won’t be harmed since they’ve been extremely cautious about it. But they’ll put on a performance worthy of an Oscar, moaning and screaming in pain or swearing that you’ve broken their expensive cell phone or watch and whatnot. If you see a tracker on your car, be extremely cautious. If it's easy really noticeable, someone has probably thrown it out their car window and is waiting for you to pull over and get out to take it off. And it’s at this moment when the bad guy will try to attack and rob you. Or they might wait until you get home to figure out where you live. On the other hand, if you find such a device in a hidden place, like underneath your car, it's a real cause for concern because criminals are targeting you specifically. Music: Creepin - MK2 https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music TIMESTAMPS Clothes on your windshield 0:32 Doorstep scam 1:26 Pretend pregnancy 2:44 Marks on your door 3:32 Scammers pretending to be victims 4:30 Sweetheart scam 5:18 GPS tracker on your car 6:29 SUMMARY -If you see some random piece of clothing that prevents your wipers from moving or obscures your view, don’t remove it, you might be attacked by a criminal as you’re doing it. -Strangers can pretend to be from your gas or electric company, a door-to-door proselytizer or charity collector while in fact they just wanna have a peek inside your house, scope out anything valuable, and come back later to break in and steal your stuff. -Sometimes a woman who seems pregnant will ask for help or pretend to feel unwell and while you’re saving her, her partner-in-crime can steal your wallet. -Burglars use certain marks to tell other criminals different things about your home so if you see graffiti on your door, call the police immediately. -Some criminals throw themselves at your car and then demand money for the “damage” you’ve caused them. -Many scammers meet people in dating apps or sites and demand money to help them solve “problems” they don’t actually have. -Criminals can use these “magno-GPSes” to stalk their victims and find out when they’re at home or work or wherever.

12 Hidden Symbols In Famous Logos You Had No Idea About

Take a look at all the famous logos with the hidden messages that might surprise you. Every line and color in the logos of the world’s most famous companies have a whole lot of meaning behind them. From hidden messages in Wendy’s symbol to NBC’s peacock secret – get ready to learn a bunch! For example, it’s hard to believe, but Pepsi paid over a million dollars to create this special logo with its secret meanings. The new design hints at mysterious and secretive themes, such as the Earth’s magnetic field, Feng shui, Pythagoras, geodynamics, the theory of relativity, and the golden ratio. The designer has explained that this logo also makes reference to Mona Lisa, the Parthenon, and even René Descartes. The red, white and blue colors have always represented the American flag. TIMESTAMPS Paramount Pictures 0:28 Domino's Pizza 1:22 Hershey’s Kisses 2:19 NBC 3:09 Carrefour 3:56 Roxy 4:24 Cisco 4:56 Picasa 5:19 Nintendo Gamecube 5:54 Unilever 6:22 Wendy's 7:14 Pepsi 7:54 SUMMARY - Paramount Pictures They say the first original logo was drawn on a napkin. The mountain on it resembled Ben Lomond in Utah, as it played an important part in the life of studio creator. The 24 stars around the mountain weren’t a random decoration of the logo. They stood for 24 actors and actresses who were the first to sign contracts with Paramount. - Domino's Pizza The first original logo had dominos on it. The one dot stood for the very first restaurant. The two dots symbolized the two franchises that opened a few years later. The plan was to add dots for each new restaurant. - Hershey’s Kisses Can you see the chocolate Kiss between “K” and “I”? By the way, do you know why Hershey’s Kisses are called so? The most popular version says it’s named after the sound the chocolate makes moving onto the conveyer belt. - NBC The peacock was first used as NBC logo back in 1956. Why did they choose a peacock of all birds? For its variety of colors and also to show how proud they were of their new broadcasting technologies. - Carrefour Its name translates as “crossroads”. That explains the red and blue arrows that point in opposing directions. The white negative space is also used in a smart way. If you give it a close look, you will see a “C” for “Carrefour” in between the arrows. - Roxy Roxy’s logo is more than just a heart to symbolize love for sports. It’s a crest built of two Quicksilver logos on their ends. - Cisco Internet networking giant Cisco got its name after the city of its headquarters – San Francisco. Their logo has both a reference to their location and to what they are doing. - Picasa Do you know what “casa” means in Spanish? It translates as “home”. The negative space in the center of the logo looks like a little house. - Nintendo Gamecube The cube isn’t just a cube within a cube. The outer figure is a letter “G” and the inside negative space forms a clear “C”. GC for Gamecube. - Unilever The letter “U” which clearly stands for Unilever is made up of 25 icons which stand for everything that’s important to them. You can find a lock of hair, a tea leaf, a jar, a hand and even a spoon in there, as well as many more symbolic drawings. - Wendy's The logo clearly says... “mom”. The idea is that Wendy’s is happy to give you the taste of your mom’s cooking and they want this thinking to stick to you. - Pepsi The designer has explained that this logo also makes reference to Mona Lisa, the Parthenon, and even René Descartes. The red, white and blue colors have always represented the American flag. Which of the logo stories is your favorite? Do you know any more cool logo facts? Tell us in the comments below.

How to charge the battery correctly? Why do the phone batteries decrease so quickly? We have 15 amazing tips that will make your smartphone live a longer life!

Nowadays one can hardly imagine life without a cell phone. And it happens quite often that our gadgets start to act up just half a year after we bought them. It is frustrating, but in most cases, we ourselves are to blame! Let’s face it — we don’t always handle our devices properly.

TIMESTAMPS
Recharge your battery more often 0:45
Don’t keep the battery charging all the time 1:24
Don’t buy cheap chargers 2:01
Be careful with «ultrafast» chargers 2:28
Remove your protective case 2:49
Drain your battery from time to time 3:10
Avoid high temperatures 3:29
Avoid cold temperatures 4:02
Avoid bright wallpaper and adjust screen brightness 4:34
Watch out for voltage fluctuations 5:19
Clean the ports and wipe the display 5:45
Keep the phone far from water 6:40
Handle your phone carefully 7:15
Avoid software updates 7:42
Use cloud storage 8:29

SUMMARY
- To increase your gadget’s battery life, you should recharge it more often. The best option is to do it each time the battery power indicator drops to 10-20%. This will increase the number of discharge cycles up to 1000-1100 cycles.
- An inbuilt controller stops the battery from taking more current than necessary, so there is absolutely no risk of overcharging the battery and destroying it.
- There have been situations when a person was using a non-native charger, and it caused a fire in the house! And another terrible thing that can happen if you use non-native chargers and cables is getting an electric shock.
- We recommend you to avoid using chargers that claim to charge your battery fully in less than an hour.
- If your smartphone has a bulky protective case, it might cause the device and its battery to overheat during a lengthy recharging session.
- It is recommended to discharge your phone’s battery every three months to 0% and then immediately charge it to 100% to get rid of the extremes of full charge/discharge.
- A high temperature is the worst thing you can imagine for lithium-ion batteries: they totally can’t stand overheating.
- Carry the phone in an inner pocket of your coat or an outer pocket but encased in a protective covering. Low temperatures are harmful to the battery because it needs more power to keep itself warm enough to function.
- Try to lower the brightness of your screen at least by 30-40%.
- At the approach of a thunderstorm, never charge your phone. Actually, the same goes for all the electrical appliances you have.
- To wipe the screen, use lint-free wipers and whatever you do, never use window cleaning liquids. They contain ammonia which can damage the screen irrevocably.
- If you drop your cell phone into a pool or a sink, the first thing you should do after you get it out is turn it off and remove the battery (if it’s possible, of course).
- Don’t put your cell phone on the dashboard when driving. Constant moving and bumping can cause a lot of damage.
- Read user reviews before you hit the update button. The problem with such updates is that it’s either very hard or impossible to go back to the previous version of the software.
- Even if you have a lot of free space on your hard drive, it’s better to use cloud storage anyway. This way your phone won’t be clogged with too much data so that it will perform much better.
