Gionee has now unveiled their latest addition to their Marathon Series of smartphone in the form of the M6 and M6 Plus at an event in China. As evident from previous releases, the Gionee (Marathon) M series is the company’s flagship smartphone range with a focus towards improved battery performance, and well it seems to be true this time around too.

Gionee M6 and M6 Plus indeed sports humongous batteries under the hood – 5000mAH and 6020mAh to be precise. That aside, they also come with the ability to be used a powerbank for pumping any other device you happen to be carrying around with you. The Chinese firm has also paid attention towards the security and privacy of its smartphone users. The Gionee Marathon M6 not only comes with a fingerprint sensor but also an encrypted chip that securely stores a user’s personal data. This is very much useful for users using their smartphone for mobile payments. Sadly, though the encrypted chip will only be present in the variant of the Gionee M6 selling in China. For users internationally as well as in India, the Gionee M6 will come equipped with a fingerprint scanner, privacy protection and malware destruction capabilities.

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 …

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.

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…
