Continuum Like Concept for Moto Mod Looks Cool and Powerful

As Mobile consumers grow by leaps and bounds, many depend on their phones for almost everything, skipping the PCs most of the time. It’s not just about convenience, but also about portability, and with big screen phones available, it’s much easier to get things done.

Microsoft is the first company to turn this concept into a reality with Continuum – a feature in Windows 10 which allows anybody using a Windows 10 Mobile to use it almost like a PC, with keyboard and mouse, by connecting it to any Wireless or Wired Display. All this was possible because Windows 10 is built for screen, and not devices.

That said, the MSP might not stay unique for very long, as Moto has made its first effort using Moto Mods that works with its recently announced Moto Z and Moto Z Force smartphones. This particular Moto Mod is only a concept right now, but that’s how everything begins.

OneCompute Moto Mod

There are two pieces which makes this possible. First is the case which attaches itself with the phone, and then there is a thin dock that attaches itself to the rear of the smartphone. The dock has three USB 3.0 slots, an HDMI port and a power slot. Your phone keeps charging when using it.

OneCompute Dock Mod Phone

The whole thing works on similar lines of Microsoft’s Continuum Display Dock. There are internal hardware which makes sure the display from the phone is projected to the secondary screen, but there is one catch. Unlike Windows 10 where the you see a desktop version of the phone, here UI is implemented using a Launcher.

OneCompute Mod External Display

The launcher offers a Desktop like UI which adapts well to big screen, and offers few features which is better compared to the Continuum. The mod supports multi-tasking and multi-window apps from the phone which is restricted to only One App One Screen in Continuum. The Mod also allows one to use peripherals like Keyboard and Mouse either by using the USB ports or over bluetooth.

Few more thing we know from the video:

  • Built on Moto Mods Developer Kit
  • Wireless I/O from Kyessa technology & Qi Wireless Technology.
  • Built in Battery for Extra productivity.
  • Notice how causally the phone is placed on the dock, and it works instantly without delay.
  • No lag when using the phone camera or when playing games. Almost Zero latency.
  • Use of mouse and keyboard looks pretty neat.
  • Video streaming over HDMI is smooth.
  • Switching from OneCompute mode to Phone mode is smooth and instant.

How to Get SMS Alerts for Gmail via Twitter

How do you get SMS notifications on your mobile phone for important emails in your Gmail? Google doesn’t support text notifications for their email service but Twitter does. If we can figure out a way to connect our Twitter and Gmail accounts, the Gmail notifications can arrive as text on our mobile via Twitter. Let me explain:Twitter allows you to follow any @user via a simple SMS. They provide short codes for all countries (see list) and if you text FOLLOW to this shortcode following by the  username, any tweets from that user will arrive in your phone as text notifications. For instance, if you are in the US, you can tweet FOLLOW labnol to 40404 to get my tweets as text messages. Similarly, users in India can text FOLLOW labnol to 9248948837 to get the tweets via SMS.The short code service of Twitter can act as a Gmail SMS notifier. You create a new Twitter account, set the privacy to private and this account will send a tweet when you get a new email in Gmail. Follow this account …

Instagram Story links get 15-25% swipe-through rates for brands, publishers

Instagram may arrived late as a traffic source for brands and publishers, but it’s already showing early signs of success, driving new visitors to their sites and even outperforming its parent company, Facebook.For years brands, publishers and other have tried to push people from the Facebook-owned photo-and-video-sharing app to their sites. Outside of ads and excepting a recent test with some retailers, Instagram didn’t offer much help to companies looking to use it to drive traffic. So they had to find workarounds. They put links in their Instagram bios. They scrawled short-code URLs onto their pictures. And they typed out links in their captions.Then last month Instagram finally introduced an official alternative to these hacky workarounds: the ability for verified profiles to insert links in their Instagram Stories.Almost a month after the launch, 15% to 25% of the people who see a link in an Instagram Story are swiping on it, according to a handful of brands and publishers that h…
