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.

2019 Nissan Altima Preview

2019 Nissan Altima Preview

The 2019 Nissan Altima ponies up a crossover-like drivetrain and advanced safety to fend off the SUV invasion.

The 2019 Nissan Altima adds a new wrinkle to the family four-door, but it’s a wrinkle we’ve seen before.

The new Altima may enter a battle royal with the just-revamped Camry and Accord, but it’s really up against a slew of new crossover SUVs that compete for attention with wagon bodies and all-wheel drive.


Guess what the new Altima has in this, its sixth generation? You guessed it, all-wheel drive.
Review continues below

It also has a crisp new look. Nissan has carved out more personality for the 2019 Altima. Just when you thought its V-shaped grille couldn’t go much deeper, it has. It takes up more of the space on a front end that dives lower ahead of a more steeply inclined hood. The Altima’s roofline has more starch in its creases this time, too.

Inside, the dash drops for a more spacious, sleeker look. Nissan’s executed the same visual trick that works well on some entry-luxury sedans: it lets the central touchscreen stand proud on the dash, which reduces the heft and size of the rest of the interior.

The 2019 Altima’s running gear has evolved in a way that inevitably will blend in with a related crossover SUV. For now at least, Nissan drops the Altima’s seldom-selected V-6. The base 2.5-liter inline-4 turns in 188 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. Nissan says it’s quieter and smoother, and turns in better fuel economy, which hasn’t been announced. It’s coupled to a continuously variable transmission (CVT), and can be paired with paddle shift controls. It’s also the first Altima to offer optional all-wheel drive, here a simple system with the ability to split power between the front and rear wheels.
Instead of a V-6, Nissan offers spendy Altima buyers a new turbo-4 engine seen first in the Infiniti QX50 crossover. The new engine can vary its compression ratio from 8:1 to 14:1 through a clever system that varies the piston throw inside the cylinder.

The new turbo-4 develops 248 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque when run on premium gas, and sends power through a CVT to the front wheels only; all-wheel drive is not yet offered.

All 2019 Altimas have a front strut, rear multi-link suspension, electric power steering with dual steering pinions for better precision, and more sophisticated monotube rear shocks. Wheel-and-tire combinations start at 16-inchers on base models, and rise to 19-inchers on the sporting Altima SR, which also gets a sport-tuned suspension.

2019 Nissan Altima comfort, safety, and features
The new 2019 Altima rides on a 111.2-inch wheelbase, up by almost two inches, and sits 192.9 inches long in all.

Nissan fits eight-way power driver and four-way manual passenger seats, with an option for a power front passenger seat. More interior room is promised, and the usual cloth or leather seats can be upgraded with heat for front passengers.

Standard safety features include forward-collision warnings with automatic emergency braking and a rearview camera. Blind-spot monitors, adaptive cruise control, and active lane control are options. The 2019 Altima can be fitted with Nissan’s Level 2 semi-autonomous driving hardware, which assists the driver with steering and braking input—with, Nissan reminds, hands-on driver control.

That ProPilot Assist hardware comes standard on the 2019 Altima SV, SL and Platinum. The lineup also includes base Altima S and Altima SR models. All have power features, keyless ignition, Bluetooth, a USB-C port, and an infotainment system with an 8.0-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The turbo-4 can only be had on the Altima SR and Platinum.

Other options include Bose audio, navigation, LED headlights, and a sunroof.

The 2019 Altima goes on sale in the fall. Pricing and EPA fuel economy have not yet been released.

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

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.
