How To Convert Image To Word On Android Phones

How to Convert Image to Word onAndroid PhonesLong gone are the times where the only way to digitize something written on paper was to retype it on a computer. That was a really painful and time-consuming process. 
Just imagine students with hundreds of notes and study materials trying to digitize them all. Or stay at home moms trying to digitize their recipes so they wouldn't have them laying around the kitchen in a paper form. You could also imagine the struggle of a businessman trying to digitize tons of reports or other financial documents.

2007-2013 Toyota FJ Cruiser Recalled For Headlights


Toyota is recalling certain 2007 through 2013 Toyota FJ Cruiser SUVs for auxiliary headlights that may be too bright.

A notice on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) website puts the number of vehicles potentially affected in the U.S. at 11,489. Affected vehicles were built from January 25, 3006 through February 23, 2013 and were equipped with Toyota Auxiliary Driving Lamp Kits mounted to the front bumper.


The problem

The lamp assemblies on the affected vehicles include 55 watt bulbs. According to the NHTSA bulletin, due to the wattage on these bulbs and the mounting angle on the front bumper, the combination of the auxiliary lights and the vehicle’s upper beam headlamps are too bright and exceed maximum light output allowed for an upper beam headlamp.

As such, affected vehicles fail to conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 108, “Lamps, reflective devices and associated equipment.”

Lights that are too bright result in increased glare for oncoming traffic, thus increasing vehicle crash risk.

Toyota documentation (PDF) provided to the NHTSA said that only FJ Cruisers with Auxiliary Driving Lamp Kits are affected.  Auxiliary Driving Lamp Kits were not specified as accessories for any other Toyota model. The problem was detected during audit testing of the Auxiliary Driving Lamp Kits in mid-April 2013.

What Toyota will do

Toyota will notify owners and dealers will replace the 55 watt bulbs with 35 watt bulbs and the mounting brackets replaced with ones that reorient the bulbs so that photometric values are within the standard. The service will be performed at no charge.

The Toyota safety recall is expected to begin in late May 2013. In the meantime, owners of 2007 through 2013 Toyota FJ Cruiser SUVs with any questions or concerns may contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.

Alternatively, owners of vehicles involved in the campaign may contact NHTSA’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 or go to http://www.safercar.gov.  Reference the NHTSA campaign ID No. 13V163000.

Nokia 8 Sirocco Review: Hands-on

Nokia 8 Sirocco Review: Hands-on

There’s something of a lack of new flagship smartphones at MWC 2018 but Nokia has plenty of new devices to feast your eyes on, including a sleek handset to rival the Galaxy S9. Here’s our Nokia 8 Sirocco hands-on review.
You would assume that Nokia’s new flagship would be one of the biggest smartphones (in terms of importance) to be unveiled at MWC but Huawei and LG have delayed their respective 2018 devices. So it’s a case of Nokia vs Samsung vs Sony.
Although a Nokia 9 was a possibility, the firm has actually announced the Nokia 8 Sirocco which is quite a radical phone for HMD – the company with the rights to the Nokia brand. For now, this is the Nokia 9.

It's easy to forget that the Nokia 6 is a year old, given that it didn't make its way to the UK until August, but it was actually unveiled much earlier in January 2017. The company has in January 2018 announced an update to the original smartphone, with the 2018 model now official.
Currently China-only, the new Nokia 6 will also become available in Europe in April, priced at 279€ (around £245).

Let’s face it, sometimes old things are cooler than new one and although the Nokia 8110 4G is technically a new phone, it’s another example of the firm bringing back a classic.
Following the Nokia 3310, this is the second ‘retro classic reloaded’ and although it’s been 22 years, the Nokia 8110 is back.
