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.

Abe & Phil’s Last Poker Game Review

I Fold



Martin Landau had a great career as an actor that included numerous nominations and victories for many prestigious awards. Three times he was nominated for an Oscar for Best Actor in a Supporting Role, winning it for his portrayal of Bela Lugosi in Tim Burton's "Ed Wood."

His final role was as Dr. Abe Mandelbaum in Howard Weiner's "Abe & Phil's Last Poker Game", which premiered at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival. I feel safe predicting that there will be no awards to anyone or anything connected with this film.

Abe, who has recently suffered a minor stroke, has moved into Cliffside Manor, a home for senior citizens, accompanied by his wife Molly (Ann Marie Shea). He quickly forms a friendship with Phil (Paul Sorvino), a man not in the best of physical health. The two of them start getting into minor messes akin to schoolboy mischief. Abe is particularly interested in pursuing Sheryl (Pamela Dubin), a 50-something year old woman.


Angela (Maria Dizza) is around 30 and in search of her father. She is in pain about being adopted and unable to find him, and she is convinced that her father lives in Cliffside Manor. Abe and Phil both decide that Angela might be their daughter. They each try to convince her while also trying to convince themselves that it's possibly true.

Sadly, almost nothing here works, other than the odd moments where Landau and Sorvino's individual acting talents can't help but shine through the mediocrity of it all. All of it is contrived and seemingly purposeless other than to give Landau and Sorvino a showcase vehicle. We would have been far better served if Landau and Sorvino had just reminisced about their respective careers. Mr. Weiner should have folded his cards instead of playing this losing hand.

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.
