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.

Bad Robot is Shooting Star Wars Episode VII in IMAX


Yesterday, Bad Robot confirmed the IMAX news on Twitter.

The wait for a new Star Wars has been a long one -- and we're not even close to the film's 2015 release date. However, it looks like your patience is going to be rewarded, with some very cool IMAX imagery.

Bad Robot has taken to Twitter (again) to tease the production of Star Wars Episode VII. The most recent tweet shows an IMAX camera hovering over the Abu Dhabi desert -- or as fans like to call it, "Tatooine." The image is accompanied by the hashtag "#bestformatever."

This news is the latest in a long line of teases, but it's not surprising. Earlier this year, IMAX strengthened its partnership with Disney, who just happens to be the proud owner of the Star Wars franchise. As a result, Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Maleficent both received theatrical IMAX releases this year. Guardians of the Galaxy will get a similar treatment on August 1, 2014, with Avengers: Age of Ultron, Tomorrowland and Star Wars Episode VII to follow in 2015.

Due to that previous announcement, we knew Star Wars Episode VII would get an IMAX release, but filming in IMAX is a whole different thing -- a good thing.

Now the remaining question is: How much of the movie will be shot in the IMAX format? Director J.J. Abrams previously put IMAX into two of his biggest blockbusters, Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol and Star Trek Into Darkness. However, IMAX footage only made up about 30 minutes of Mission: Impossible's 132-minute runtime, with Star Trek Into Darkness getting the same out of its 133 minutes.

It's important to note that this IMAX camera does not look like the same one we reported on earlier this month for the release of Transformers: Age of Extinction. According to SlashFilm, Star Wars is getting 70mm IMAX footage (in addition to the previously announced 35mm film). The IMAX 3D Digital Camera that Michael Bay used was a fully integrated dual 65mm 4K digital large-format 3D camera. For more on the camera being used in Episode VII, check out the IMAX website.

Star Wars Episode VII stars John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Lupita Nyong'o, Gwendoline Christie and Max von Sydow. Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Kenny Baker are also scheduled to reprise their roles from the original trilogy.

Star Wars: Episode VII will hit theaters on December 18, 2015.

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

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.
