How I Found ATM with Cash Near My Home

The recent bold initiative by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to demonetize the high value currency has received mixed response from the nation. While some have hailed the decision, some have criticized it as well. Will this surprise move by the government will meet its objective of curbing black money, corruption and tax evasion in the long run? Well, we will have to wait and watch.

But what is the reality for the common man? How has this move affected the life of ordinary people? How is this initiative faring on the ground?

It’s been exactly a month since the government’s decision to demonetize Rs 500 and Rs 1000 and its still a struggle for the common man.

The queues outside the ATMs are yet to die down and the scenes inside the banks are still chaotic. While most of us have moved to cashless transactions for most of our needs but still we do need cash! And I have realized that getting our hard-earned money in our hands was not easy.

My father after standing in a queue for 2 hours had to come back empty handed simply because the ATM ran out of cash. A few friends had to skip work to withdraw money from the ATMs/bank. My sister fell sick after standing in the sun for 3 hours. The long serpentine queue outside my bank’s ATM, made me do an about turn and I simply walked back home. A few days ago, to avoid these queues, my husband and I went to the ATMs near our home at 5.30 am. It was heartening to see not a single soul at that hour near the ATM, but soon our smiles vanished when we saw that the ATM did not have money and the scene was repeated at 3 more ATMs. Words fail me to explain the irritation and frustration I felt at that time. I wished we knew about the ATMs with Cash in our area. And then I got to know about Find ATM with Cash on Money View App. (I wish I had asked for more that day!!)

Find ATM with Cash feature on Money View App gives the location of the nearest active ATM to withdraw cash. This feature of finding the active ATM is possible because of crowd-sourcing data from the vast user base of more than 5 million spread across 200 cities in India. And this makes it one of the most comprehensive ATM tracking solutions available at our fingertips.

Recovery from a Crash

We have more or less moved towards a paperless work environment. With almost everyone having access to a computer or a laptop and a smart phone, use of paper is on a downtrend. Going paperless, not only decreases our environmental footprint but also clears clutters from offices and homes and of course, saves time from hunting through stacks of papers or files.

Data on our computers is all we own. Right from the official communications to personal emails, work projects and presentations, photographs from our DSL cameras and smart phones, invoices to receipts, all are stored on our computer systems.

What would happen if we were to lose all this data unexpectedly. I am sure the mere thought of it would give us nightmares. But we may lose data due to…

  1. Computer crashes – This is catastrophic and always happen when you least expect it.
  2. Computer viruses and malware –Malicious viruses can corrupt files, disable computers and damage data.
  3. Mechanical damages of hard drive – Hard drives of computers are the most fragile parts of computers and can fail suddenly and without warning. How dreadful it would be to lose data which you have generated and stored for years.
  4. Physical computer damage – Spilling drinks on your laptop or sudden voltage fluctuations, accidentally dropping of laptop can damage system and data.
  5. Accidental deletion of data – This often happens when you perform a ‘Select All’ + ‘Shift-Delete’ operation without individually checking everything.
  6. Theft – Yes, that happens too, especially during travel or in a crowded place.

Sadly, I have experienced no. 1 and 2 and have friends who have suffered the loss of data due to no. 3, 4, 5 and 6!

God forbid, but if your hard drive has crashed due to any of the above mentioned reasons and you no longer have access to your critical data files, what will you do! I mean apart from panicking that is!

Well, relax and stop panicking. Help is now available even for this nightmarish episode.

Most people regularly back up their files to their computer hard drive, but in the event of a total computer breakdown this activity is futile.  Saving data on an external hard drive, or a large-capacity pen drive is another option. However this method is only as secure as the device you’re backing up to. This storage device can also get damaged and result in data loss. A safer and more effective method of securing files is online backup. In this case, despite best intentions, you may forget to update your files as often as you should, leaving a large amount of recent work unprotected.

A more safer and efficient way to recover the loss of data is available in the form of Data Recovery.

Data Recovery is the process of recovering data from damaged, corrupted or inaccessible secondary storage media and operating systems that has been lost by either hardware failure, human error, software bugs, a virus or a natural disaster. The Data Recovery software, can recover lost or deleted data from your hard disk or external drive. The scan engine of the software is so powerful that it can retrieve any file you ever lost and with the efficient search option, finding any specific file is extremely easy.

  • Recover Documents, Photos and 300 other file types
  • Efficiently scans more than 2TB of data
  • Recover files with an advanced find option
  • Supports Windows 10/8.1/8/7/XP/Vista, Mac, Linux, Novell and Unix Data
  • Supports NTFS, FAT and ExFAT file systems
  • Memory Card Recovery : Contacts, files, songs, videos, images saved on phone’s memory card can be recovered too
  • Brings back lost or deleted volumes
  • Resurrects corrupted hard disks : Hard Disk Recovery is another feature of this software. File Recovery tool can easily undelete files from your corrupted pen drive, hard disk, memory card and even your camera’s memory. It also supports several types of memory cards including CF cards, Flash cards, SD card (Mini SD, Micro SD and SDHC card) and even Mini Disks.
  • Sorts your files exactly the way you want : Filtered Tree option to make it easier to get back those data in the most possible sorted order

When my laptop crashed, I used the services of Stellar Data Recovery. Stellar Data Recovery is a leading information technology company that has revolutionized the concept of data recovery with smart, simple software and services. Their data recovery, repair and system optimization tools help us by bringing back the loss from catastrophic data loss situations. Headquartered in Gurgaon, Stellar has been serving the various data recovery needs of this part of the globe. With offices in USA and Europe, Stellar Data Recovery has further expanded its reach. The data recovery labs in the Netherlands and India are one of their kinds. Apart from hard disk recovery, RAID recovery they also specialize in Memory card recovery services.

The bottom line is that the data on our computer systems is valuable and it is imperative to take steps to protect the information stored from sudden loss.

Connect Meaningfully with Affimity

Everyone has friends on social networks who post too often and flood the news feed with annoying memes, take too many selfies, post hundreds of pictures of their babies, dogs and cats, ask for power and what not for their online games, share the same post in a hundred different groups and then share random updates all throughout the day… All you see is a lot of clutter and noise on your screen. And it makes you go arghh to ughh to a yawn to a face-palm in a matter of a few seconds! Sounds familiar!?!

Well, we all know that it’s because that most of the things shared by your ‘friends’ do not interest or appeal to you.

What if your social networking feed consisted of topics that are meaningful to you? What if you connect on a social media with like minded people, people who share your interests or passions?

Well, you now have a social networking site that addresses just these concerns.

Affimity is new social network, re-imagined as a collection of interest-specific social channels. It is actually like the television of our current times. Remember the time when we had a few TV channels that had all types of programs on them. And now we have various channels that are interest-specific viz entertainment, news, travel, food, history, comedy, children, saas-bahu sports, and Hindi and English movies etc.

Affimity which is Passion (Affinity) and Friendship (Amity) has news feed which is categorized into different channels. Based on your interest, you can select the various channels. Currently, Affimity offers the following channels… Food, Movies, TV Shows, Celebs, Book Club, Music, Career, Parenting, Fitness, Random Thoughts, Gaming, Digital Life, Wearables, Allergies, At Home Moms, Working Moms, Tennis, Motor Sports, Football, Cricket, Bollywood, US Politics, Beauty, Swifties, Travel, DIY, Fashion, NFL Mania, Space, Everyday Science, Holidays, Lawrits, Comics, Starkids, Immigration, Insurance, India Vents, India Humour. That’s a pretty comprehensive channel list, isn’t it?

2016-01-29_08h18_57

You can add your favourite channels. Once you select any channel, you will read, post and share all the Buzz, New feeds, Top Picks and Questions pertaining to that subject. The best is that you can select as many channels as you want and get info, news, recommendations and thoughts on that subject at one place.

2016-01-29_08h10_09

Here are a few things that appealed to me about Affimity

  • You have control over the content in your news feed. You get to read and share info that is relevant to you.
  • You get to meet and be friends and have followers in like minded people who share your interests and passions. You can engage meaningfully with them through comments and likes. For instance, you can connect with me on Affimity on the Food, Movies, Book Club channels.
  • You can share posts of interest on other social media viz Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and email.
  • The mobile app of this site makes it convenient to be connected when on the go too.
  • You can post, ask a question or take a poll or upload a picture or a video on any channel of your choice. If Food is your passion, you even get a readymade template for sharing your recipe.

2016-01-29_08h16_06

Affimity is a cool place to hang out with like minded people. Go on and experience it. Highly recommended.

360 Security Lite App Review

If I were to list the things that I hate about my Android phone… well, its battery life dropping faster than the candies in the Candy Crush would top the list. This would be closely followed by apps like Facebook, which has to be checked like every 15 seconds; Instagram, where pics have to posted like there’s no tomorrow; Twitter, where the action cannot be missed for even a minute and Kindle app, well to keep you sane. These apps drain the performance of my phone at a lightening speed. And when the phone battery is reduced to a sliver of red on the screen or when it would leave behind a lazy snail in performance, gritting teeth and pulling hair become a permanent routine.

And then I found 360 Security Lite. It is a mobile antivirus and performance application for Android users.  It is available for free download on Google Playstore. It downloads quickly and takes up only 4 MB space.

360 Security Lite is all-in-one Android optimizer that Boosts speed, Cleans junk and has an antivirus too, So, it optimizes the background apps, manages the memory space, cleans junk(cache) files and extends the phone battery life, while keeping the device safe from virus and Trojans.

In the screenshot above, 34 apps (OMG!!) were consuming memory and 6 apps were draining battery. When I clicked the BOOST option…

Screenshot_2015-12-09-14-24-40

The result…. Cool, isn’t it?

Screenshot_2015-12-10-21-13-29[10]

The CLEAN option scanned the phone and removed junk files in a jiffy!

Screenshot_2015-12-10-21-13-39

The ANTIVIRUS option…

Screenshot_2015-12-10-21-14-50

… scans for Malware and Vulnerabilities…

Screenshot_2015-12-10-21-19-22Screenshot_2015-12-10-21-19-58

And pronounces the phone…

The SETTINGS can be changed as per one’s needs.

Screenshot_2015-12-10-21-15-26Screenshot_2015-12-10-21-15-43

What I really liked about 360 Security Lite is that with just one tap/click, I could Boost, Clean and Protect my phone and this really helped in conserving battery life and enhancing its performance too.

If you have an android phone/tablet which runs on Less than 1 GB of RAM, then 360 Security Lite is a must-have app.

Conzumr.com : A Website Review

Remember the times, when we would drive around the city and visit some 5-6 shops and check the deals offered and then drive back to shop no.1 to buy the object of our desire.

Then as the technology picked up pace in adaptation and evolution, so did our acceptance for online shopping. But our desire to get the best deal and offers remained the same. So, we would check some 2-3 shopping portals by opening multiple tabs on our computer and compare the product. All this could be a bit overwhelming as sometimes, the same product would not be available on all the sites and sometimes we wouldn’t even know that some great deals were available elsewhere on other shopping portals.

Like everything else, ecommerce world has evolved too. Today we have websites that help the online shoppers to make an informed decision. Yes, these are the comparison shopping sites. These websites collect product information, including pricing, from participating retailers/ecommerce portals and then display that collective information on a single results page in response to a shopper’s search query. In this way, shoppers can compare the product specifications of various brands/models, prices offered by the various online stores on a single page and choose the merchant that offers the best overall value. 

I came across Conzumr.com which is a new search and comparison website that aims to educate consumers so that they make a rational and fact based purchase decision. It has over 4500 listed in various categories like Books, Electronic Goods, Sound and Vision, Fitness, Health Care, Home Appliances, Baby & Kids, Kitchen Appliances, Personal Care and Tablets & Smart Phones.

Conzumr.com provides detailed product specifications, features, reviews & ratings and comparisons to enable online shoppers do their research before taking informed buying decisions.

The first thing that caught my attention was the logo. One look at it and you get what Conzumr.com is all about. It truly represents the business that Conzumr.com is in.

2015-11-24_10h46_51

The website has a layout that’s simple and appealing, with a navigation which is easy too. A large search bar at the top of the page has an instruction ‘Search…Product, Model No. or a Brand which basically tells the online shopper that they can Search > Compare > Decide by using this tool. Of course, the instruction text goes away when the user clicks to type or activate the box.

The various categories have drop-down menus that break down top-level buttons into sub-sections. Each of the sub categories can be viewed and compared by Brands, Prices, Product Specifications. For example, if you’d like to check out Built-in Ovens, then you can compare the various brands on the basis of prices, size, capacity. The various models can be selected and compared and seen in a side by side view.

The main page has links to Review Videos, Popular Product Comparisons, Latest Conzumr Reviews and Conzumr Guides and Tips.

I thought of comparing the three models of Kindle. In one table, on a single page, I got to know the products features and prices of Kindle, Kindle Voyage and Kindle Paperwhite. Considering all the options, before we buy something is a smart strategy. With many options to choose from, it’s important to examine all features and functions of the various models and also look at cost effective option that meets our needs.

Once, I chose the Kindle that suited my requirements and budget, I clicked on the link which took me to the shopping store’s website directly and all I had to do was to follow the regular steps of online shopping. Yes, it was that simple and easy to make an informed decision with Conzumer.com.

clip_image002

I checked about the Boxed Set of Harry Potter series and was surprised to see the price variations across 8 online stores!

clip_image008
Comparing a product on Conzumr.com helps you to

  • Research and dig a bit deeper before you shop
  • Get to know the products in the category
  • Find a good deal
  • Make informed buying decision

More products and categories on Conzumr.com would make it a more comprehensive site for comparison shopping. The site works fine on most mobile browsers but a mobile version of the site would increase its reach. More prominent social media presence can boost the online presence of the website.

Conzumr.com will be my go-to page  for online shopping to research, compare and make informed buying decision. Do you check comparison websites before shopping online?

CouponMachine.in : A Website Review

We all love a good bargain. Don’t we? While we can haggle with the local shopkeeper to give a better deal, but can the same be done while shopping online which has become a way of life for most of us! Yes, apart from the discounts offered by the seller at online stores, there are discount coupons that not only allow you to save more money and get attractive deals but help you earn more rewards too.

Few weeks ago, while shopping online for Diwali, I browsed through the coupon websites to check out good discount coupons and I came across CouponMachine.in

CouponMachine  has a simple and easy interface. The top of the website has a large search bar, which says, ‘Search Any Product… We Promise Discount’.  

2015-11-14_23h50_47

The home page offers different categories that allow you to look through the site for coupons that you are looking for.
