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.

30 Days Of The 2013 Ram 1500


2013 Ram 1500

With all the high-performance roadsters we take for joyrides, and all the supersedans we cruise, It's easy to forget how good today's full-size pickup trucks have become.

We're not going to forget this month, because for the next 30 days, The Car Connection is going in-depth with the 2013 Ram 1500. Yes, we brought you a full Ram 1500 review and video road test last year--but now that production's in full swing, we wanted more seat time, especially in the efficient new V-6 version.


We'll be spending the month with a Ram SLT Crew Cab 4x4, outfitted with that V-6 and with what we think is the most useful body style. Our truck hails from Warren, Michigan, with a 3.6-liter V-6 built in Mexico and an eight-speed automatic assembled in Germany, that swings into action via the Ram's rotary shift knob. Four-wheel drive is shift-on-the-fly; cruise control and keyless entry are standard, for a listed base price of $37,300. According to the sticker, it's rated at 16/23 mpg, or 19 mpg combined.

From here, we'll explain gently that this Ram 1500 isn't quite like any Ram you'll find in a showroom or on a lot. Basically, our truck is a production-correct example built before final trim levels and option packages were decided. Our truck has a cloth bench seat, with a power driver section and storage built into the middle section--both into the seat bottom and the back cushion. There's a 115-volt power outlet on the dash; steering-wheel audio controls; a garage door opener; remote start; and a security system.

For towing and off-roading, there are tow hooks and skid plates, as well as rubber floor mats, a 32-gallon fuel tank, tow mirrors, and a Class IV hitch. For hauling, our Ram has a spray-in bedliner--while for luxury, it has a power sunroof, Uconnect with Bluetooth streaming and a 506-watt Alpine audio system, and an air suspension. Finally, for safety, this Ram has a rearview camera and rear parking sensors.

Including destination, this truck shows a sticker price of $47,040. But it's all in theory. We've talked to Chrysler, and while it's possible to order this Deep Cherry Red Ram, with the same Canyon Brown/Light Frost Beige interior and with the V-6/4x4 drivetrain, you probably wouldn't. For less money, you could spec out a Laramie or Big Horn with a HEMI V-8.

We have plenty in store for the Ram until it goes on its way in early June. We'll try some truck accessories, and see if its fuel-economy promises can come true. We'll put it through the usual photo, video, and social-media hoops--but we'll also put it through some special towing, hauling, off-roading, and weekending tasks we're absolutely sure you'll find useful and fun. With a little Ram history and new- and used-truck shopping thrown in, we're sure you'll miss the Ram as much as we think we will in 29 days.

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).

Nokia 8110 4G Review: Hands-on

Nokia 8110 4G Review: Hands-on MWC might usually be about smartphones and other high-end gadgets but a feature phone has caused quite a big of hype. HMD has re-launched the Nokia phone seen in The Matrix. Here we go hands-on with the Nokia 8110 4G. 
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.
