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.

The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot Movie Review


Moustache Defeats Hitler and Bigfoot

When you hear that there's a movie with the title "The Man Who Killed Hitler and then the Bigfoot" coming out, it's difficult to imagine that it has even the slightest chance of being any good. It's hard enough to believe that it even exists and that someone isn't playing a practical joke on you. It is real and it's every bit as bad as you might imagine. That a group of people thought this was a good idea and execution is a mystery worth the investigation of a special prosecutor.

Calvin Barr (Sam Elliott, "A Star Is Born") is this special man, although Elliott only portrays the older version of Calvin. A lot of this film features Aidan Turner ("The Hobbit" trilogy) as the younger Calvin and he is the one who kills Hitler. Elliott offs The Bigfoot.

Early on, we watch the younger Calvin in the minutes leading up to his task and then him completing it. He's an agent dressed as a Nazi in order to gain entry into Hitler's private office. Calvin has to get through freakishly weak security and while doing so a close-up of a wristwatch worn by a Nazi shows us the face of a watch that has a swastika as the hands of the watch. That told me I was watching a comedy. Turns out I was wrong, so who knows what that watch is about.

Flashbacks abound here and we are tossed back and forth among timeframes incessantly. The two prime ones are present-day, and post WWII. The latter is a device to wedge in a totally unbelievable love story between Calvin and the fair schoolmarm, Maxine (Caitlin FitzGerald, Succession). Like most everything else, it falls incredibly flat.

In present-day life, Calvin is an incredibly relaxed older man leading as unremarkable as possible life in small-town New England, where no one speaks like they are from New England. His brother Ed (Larry Miller, "10 Things I Hate About You") is the town barber in a shop that resembles a slightly updated Floyds on the Andy Griffith show. Ed is an affable fellow, but other than that he serves no deep purpose to the story.

Enter a gentleman called Flag Pin (Ron Livingston, "Tully"), an agent sent by the U.S. government. He comes to Calvin as a last hope to save the world. Bigfoot is on the loose and he's on a killing spree. 

Compounding the situation is the fact that Bigfoot is also spreading a deadly disease. Calvin, it has been determined, is the only man who can save the world because of his rare blood type that makes him immune to being infected by the disease. Why Bigfoot can't just be tracked, located, and shot by a young man instead of turning to a senior citizen is unexplained. 

Predictably, Bigfoot looks like an actor in a getup from the props department and Calvin's pursuit of him also strains belief to the point of stupidity. If this were a superhero movie, maybe. Then again, maybe this is a superhero movie. It's certainly not any other type of movie. Add a half-star to my review if you're a lifelong fan of Sam Elliott's moustache.

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.
