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.

Cold Comes the Night Movie Review


Tze Chun has created a simple and small adventure in his "Cold Comes the Night". It very quickly establishes the setting as a motel not far from Albany, New York, that serves as a haven for druggies and prostitutes. Unpleasant things permeate every corner here. Even sunlight never seems to penetrate the ever-present dankness.

Chloe (Alice Eve) is a single mother who lives with her young daughter at the motel she manages. She is feeling the pressure of child services who want to take her daughter away because of the unsavory surroundings she is living in. Chloe wants desperately to find a way out of this life and her desperation plays a major role in how she reacts to the obstacles and opportunities that present themselves.

When a double-murder occurs in the motel, we meet Billy (Logan Marshall Green), a sleazy cop who had some sort of relationship with Chloe that may or may not still be active. One gets the feeling that there is something there, but that it has passed its apex and now is more a case of Billy still being interested in the occasional roll in the sack and Chloe agreeing reluctantly, while playing the angle of how can this help her and her daughter.

Enter Topo (Bryan Cranston), a near-blind professional killer who has found himself at the motel for a quick stopover on his way to do his business further to the north. Unfortunately for Topo, his driver is the guy who was part of the double-murder that just occurred, and his vision prevents him from driving on, not to mention that his car has been impounded.

Topo's solution is to take Chloe hostage under the threat that he will put a bullet in her daughter's ear if Chloe does not cooperate. The rest of "Cold Comes the Night" is about Topo and Chloe's trek to get the vehicle back and to recover the valuable commodity that has disappeared from the vehicle.

At some points, the plot takes turns that are pretty easy to predict. Yet, at other times there are some interesting plot twists that keep the audience guessing. These are the moments that sustain our interest. Cranston does a good job, despite an accent that is an odd Russian gruff tone designed to make us fear him, which is somewhat successful. "Cold Comes the Night" is far from outstanding, but considering that it is a low-budget venture, it succeeds well enough to be wandering out into a cold night to see.

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.
