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.

Land Ho! Movie Review


Buddy-comedies have been around forever. Every year, a bunch of them are released. "Land Ho" features Colin (Paul Eenhorn) and Mitch (Earl Lynn Nelson), as the two older buddies on a road trip to Iceland. The premise is promising. The execution is disappointing.

Colin is an Australian bank employee. Mitch is a surgeon and Colin's ex-brother-in-law. Colin is very reserved. Mitch is loud and specializes in in-your-face sexual innuendo. He never passes up a chance to make a sexual remark, no matter how inappropriate the moment or situation.

I think he's supposed to be cute, but it's more discomfiting than cute. I can't be certain what effect Aaron Katz and Martha Stevens, the co-writers and co-directors, were going for though. Colin's responses to Mitch are always understated, slightly embarrassed, but never quite disapproving. Colin is Jack Lemmon to Mitch's Walter Matthau.

Their quest is to just enjoy themselves by getting away from their personal disappointments in life, but throughout their entire time spent in Iceland, nothing much really does happen. Oh, Colin gets a bit of a relaxing diversion, and Mitch gets to misbehave without getting into any messy situations, but by the time it's over, you'll wonder what the point of it all really was.


The biggest issue I had with "Land Ho" is that I kept expecting something to happen that would offer a plot twist or at least a surprise, but it's mostly about wandering around largely bleak surroundings, without even a hint of tension for either gentleman. In a buddy movie, there must be something that brings the buddies closer together or tears them apart, at least temporarily. Katz and Stevens feel otherwise. They are content to just let them wander. Watching "Land Ho" will unfortunately make your mind wander as well.

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.

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 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.
