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.

Spider-Man Into The Spider-Verse Release Date, Cast, Trailers, & News

Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse Release Date, Cast, Trailers, & News
When Marvel rebooted Spider-Man a couple of years ago, some fans were quick to complain that there had simply been too many Spider-Man films in recent years, and that it was time to give the franchise a break. To those fans we say: tough luck, because this year we're getting not just one but two new Spider-Men, and they're both in the same film.

Yup, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse will feature two (at least!) heroes donning the Spidey suit, and neither of them will be played by Tom Holland, who's played the character in Captain America: Civil War, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Avengers: Infinity War. That's because this new film is an entirely animated release, set in its own universe (well, spider-verse, we suppose).


Release date
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is coming out in 2018, but you've got a little while to wait: it doesn't come out until 14 December, in both the UK and the US, though some other countries get it a little closer to Christmas.

That's potentially a bold release date, putting the film up against DC hero Aquaman's debut solo film. Then again, Spider-Man is likely to shoot for a slightly younger audience, and historically Marvel films have more than held their own against DC at the box office, so it might be DC that should be worried.

It's a big year for Spidey fans too - not only are we getting this film, plus his appearance in Infinity War, but there's also a brand-new Spider-Man game coming to PS4.

Cast and crew
As we said above, the first thing to know about Into the Spider-Verse is that Tom Holland isn't in the film at all, despite playing Spidey in the MCU. That doesn't mean there's no Peter Parker - it's just that he'll be voiced by Jake Johnson (New Girl).

He's not the only Spider-Man around either. He'll be joined by Miles Morales - who comics fans will know as the mixed-race Spidey who first appeared in the spin-off Ultimates universe before making the move to the main Marvel comics world. In fact, it looks like he'll be the lead in Into the Spider-Verse, voiced by Shameik Moore (The Get Down), with Peter Parker playing second fiddle this time around.

The rest of the voice cast will boast Liev Schreiber in an unknown role (his second Marvel appearance, after playing Sabertooth in X-Men Origins: Wolverine), Brian Tyree Henry (of Atlanta), and Mahershala Ali, hot off the Oscar-winning Moonlight (and also a Marvel vet, having played one of the villains in Luke Cage's first season).

Impressively, even for an animation, the film boasts three directors: Bob Persichetti, Rodney Rothman, and Peter Ramsey. The former two are making their directorial debuts, though Ramsey previously led on Rise of the Guardians.

Meanwhile the script comes from Phil Lord - his usual writing partner Chris Miller also helped develop the project, but isn't getting a writing credit. They're best known for 21 and 22 Jump Street and the Lego Movie, though gained a bit of notoriety recently after being removed from directing Solo: A Star Wars Story midway through production. Hopefully Into the Spider-Verse proved a better fit for their comic sensibilities.

Posters and photos
So far there have been just two posters for the film: the first was a convention teaser from before the title was announced, while the second is a pretty simple affair with the graffiti-style logo and release date:
Beyond the posters there aren't many official stills from the film, but there are a few high-res frame grabs from the first trailer that give us a great look at it:





Trailers
There's only been one teaser trailer so far, but it's pretty great. It introduces Miles Morales, teases the plot, and sets up the idea that Morales isn't the only Spider-Man around - and that there might even be quite a few of them:

Story and plot rumours
We know very little about the plot of Into the Spider-Verse, but we can figure a bit out.

The trailer gives us most of the hints. We know that Miles Morales is the main protagonist, complete with his black-and-red Spidey suit.

We also know that he's going to meet up with another Spider-Man - smart money's on Peter Parker, obviously - but that there might even be more than just the two of them out there, going by Miles's, "How many of us are there?"

It also looks like Peter Parker will be dead - officially at least - with Miles shown visiting a grave for 'P--- P-----'. Unless that's a very hefty redirect from Marvel, that means one of two things: Peter fakes his death; or we're dealing with alternate universe shenanigans, with multiples Peters and maybe multiple Mileses, which would be a fantastic way to maintain a loose connection to the MCU without ever having to properly cross over to it, and would be a great nod to the character's own comic book origins.

Hopefully the next trailer will reveal a little more, but until then hold tight for more info on the film.

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).

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.
