Asus Unveils ZenScreen, a Portable Secondary Monitor for Your Laptop

It seems that a majority of OEM laptop manufacturers are investing efforts to make their machines thinner and better. Asus, however, has taken it to the next level and the companies latest offering is a portable 15-inch monitor that is aimed at shaping up as the second screen for your laptops. Asus knows that quite a handful of professionals make use of secondary screen but usually the desktop screens are fixed and are immovable. With the ZenScreen you can simply tuck inside the display and carry it around.


The specifics include the 15.6-inch display with the thin 6.5-mm bezels along its borders. At a thinness of 8-mm Asus claims that the ZenScreen is the “world’s lightest and slimmest full HD portable monitor”. Thankfully Asus ZenScreen also comes with a kickstand which is neatly integrated into a 1mm foldable smart case. The monitor is light at less than 2 pounds and it also comes with a USB Type-C port which is meant to support power and video options.

That said, it would have helped a great deal if Asus had bundled a separate battery for the monitor since connecting it to a power source every now and then can become a cumbersome task. The Taiwanese company is yet to reveal the release date, however, the ZenScreen will retail at approximately $300. Just to be clear, the ZenScreen is compatible with any laptop that comes with a Type-A USB port.

If you are looking out for a second laptop screen that you can carry around, then the ZenScreen is probably one of the best options out there.

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…
