How To Make an Editable Auto "Read More" with a Moving Shadowed Image Effect

Hello... last couple days, I started blogging again, and I forgot everything about how to make my blog looks good. I only use the standard template and I don't like it because it's too simple (of course it is!).  I want to make my home page filled with lots of my posts, but Blogger does not support that thing. So, I Google it and I actually found a trick on how to do it by shortening my post with an auto "read more" things.
After applying that trick, and I think it's amazing and also important for a new user of  Blogger, so, In this post,  I will explain about how to make a "Read More" in your blog's homepage and a little extra with a shadowed Image Effect which make it more beautiful. This "Read More" things is used to make post in the homepage minimalist. It's like a synopsis or a small quotes from your posts. 

In the standard template of Blogger, when you go into your Blog URL, it shows all your post and every words on it long way down until the end of the page and it makes the reader "exhausted" (lol), Now, in this Tutorial, I will tell you how to make your posts "shortened" in your homepage and if the reader want to read it just click "read more" and it will lead you the link the post. It makes the reader easy to read your blog.

To make this auto "read more", is so simple. You can do it in less the 5 minutes if you have good eyes and capability of reading script ( well, I'm not that good, it takes me more than that actually).

If you are a new blogger, you don't need to do anything before you start BUT if you an old blogger and you have used this kind of script before, then you might be have to delete your previous script. In this script you can edit the height and width of the script depends on how you want it to be. The previous or other scripts actually does not support this Editing on the script. Please remember that this is A NEW AUTO READ MORE SCRIPT. Ok, let's skip it to the case.
  1. Log in to your Blogger account
  2. Go to your Template and back it up by clicking "Back up/ Restore"
  3. Click Edit HTML
  4. Click anywhere inside the template box.

How To Install/Flash Android 4.4.4 KitKat in Samsung Galaxy Wonder (GT-I8150)


Samsung Galaxy Wonder is a legacy phone which is not getting updates from Samsung. The Stock ROM/Standard OS is Android Ginger Bread 2.3.5/6/7 etc and it will never get Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0), Jelly Bean (Android 4.1, 4.2, 4.3), KitKat (Android 4.4) and the latest Android L (Android 5.0) officially from Samsung Corp. Now in this post, I will tell you how to make your Galaxy Wonder (GTI8150) running those ROMs including KitKat ROM from CyanogenMod Team (I would tell Android L, but It's not available for our phone for now). 

First you should know what OS you have now. it's under "setting" option and "about phone". you should see our OS version there. Before you start, remember the term DWYOR (Do With Your Own Risk) again.

Now, for the first part of installing this Android 4.4.4 on your Samsung Galaxy 4.4.4, you should've had a CWM 6.0.4.5 (ClockWorkMod) installed on your Phone. If you don't know how, then go to this LINK.

Let's say that you've already Installed CWM on your phone. Now we need to prepare things that we need to make this work.

1. Download the Latest ROM Android 4.4.4 from Arco's link. You can Get it HERE
2. Download the Latest GApps for this ROM from TZkruzze link HERE.
3. Back Up your Internal SDcard then Format it to keep things clean when you go into new ROM.
4. Addition, If you want to back up your SMS to your External SD, you can use THIS app.
Steps:
  1. Put the both files into your Internal SDcard in a folder "ROM" (you can create one and name it  yourself)
  2. Turn Off your phone and then, Go into your Custom Recovery (CWM) by pressing Power button + Home Button + Volume Up altogether for 1-3 seconds, then release the power button after Samsung Logo showing up.
  3. In CWM, your touch screen won't work. You can only use Volume UP and Volume down for choosing the opion, Haptic Back button / power button for "Back" and Home button for "OK".
  4.  Choose "wipe data / factory reset" and then select "Yes-Wipe all user data" with the home button.  Doing this you will erase all data, setting and applications from your phone.
  5. select "wipe cache partition" and then "yes"
  6. Select "Advance" and then "wipe dalvik cache " then "yes". after that press back button to go back to the main page.
  7. Select "Mounts and Storage" option, and then choose "format System", and "yes", then back to the main page again
  8. After you do all that, now Select "install zip" option and select "sdcard0" (SdCard1 if you're file is in External SDcard) and then find your ROM file /storage/sdcard0/ROM folder and Install it.
  9. After ROM installing is Finished, then choose "Install Zip" again, and Find your GApps file and Install it.
  10. If it's finished, then you choose the reboot option to turn on your phone.
  11. It will take 3-5 minutes to go into your homescreen
  12. Now you have Android 4.4.4 ( KitKat) in your Samsung Galaxy Wonder (GT-I810)
Here is my SS of my Samsung Galaxy W (GT-8150) running Android 4.4.4 Kitkat



 Setting and Menu Display

Theme Setting

I think, that's all the way of installing Android 4.4.4 Kitkat on your galaxy wonder, and now you're ready to install any apps you want and show your friends that your old phone can run KitKat ROM. Don't forget, Ask if you're having a trouble with this tutorials. Thanks

How to Install/Flash ClockWorkMod 6.0.4.5 (CWM 6.x) on Samsung Galaxy Wonder (GT-I8150)

Hi... This is my first post after a long time I had stop blogging. Ok. I'm Not a native English Speaker, so I'm sorry if you don't understand what I had written below.
ClockWorkMod is a custom recovery that can be used to Install any ROM you want including Android 4.4.4. By having this installed on your phone, your Warranty is Void (But, you can revert back to your original recovery though). Thus, before you start, you need to know that if something goes wrong on your phone, it's all on you or most people says "Do It With Your Own Risk (DWYOR)". 

     Before you install this CWM recovery, you need download the following things.
a)  Install Samsung USB Mobile driver which you can do it with Installing Samsung KIES,  but if you don’t have one (neither do I), you can get it HERE.
b)  Download Odin Multi Download 4.43 which is the main tools you will use
c)   Ancora.ops which will you need to work with the Odin app.
d)  CWM 6.0.4.5 (ClockWorkMod) which is the thing that you need to be installed into your phone using the Odin app. 
Ok, now let’s say that you’ve downloaded all the thingies you need. We will begin the crucial part of this.
a) Turn Off your Antivirus, because it might be interfere with everything you’ll do. (I personally turned it off because I don’t want to take a risk of Bricking or kill my phone)
b)   Install the Samsung Driver (If you’ve already installed it, you don’t need to)
c)   Put all the files (Odin, Ancora.ops and CWM) into one folder in your drive.
d)  Turn off your phone, and go into the Download Mode.
-    Press the power button + home button + volume down button altogether
-   When the Samsung line is shown, remove your finger from the power button but keep the other two (home button + volume down still pressed). it just need 1 or 2 seconds and then when a warning shows up, you get your fingers off from the pressed buttons. 
-    The warning ask you whether you want to continue to download mode or Restart your phone. If you press Volume Up button to go to download mode. If you press the volume then it restarts your phone.
You can see it in the pictures below:






e)   Open Odin multi downloader, and in the “select ops” button, you choose Ancora Ops file which you had downloaded.
f)    Then check list option One Package, Autoreboot, protect ops, and restart time.
g)    In the One package option, you choose the CWM file you downloaded. 
h)  Connect your USB Cable to your Galaxy Wonder in download mode, and your phone  should recognize the driver for your wonder and odin will detect it too. 
i)    For the easiest way, see the picture below and you need to do it exactly.



           j)   Click Start button if you're ready. Remember it is supposed to be EXACTLY the same
           k)   I know you're afraid if this is your first time. But, it only take like a minute or so.
           l)    When Odid Says PASS, then disconnect your Phone and your phone shall reboot.

Now you have CWM on your Phone!!!
To check it , you can go to recovery menu by pressing power button + Home button + Volume up. it's almost the same when you go to download mode. 

here is the the picture.


If you want to go further on Upgrading your Samsung Galaxy Wonder (GT-I8150) into Android 4.4.4 A.K.A KitKat. You can find it HERE.

How your mind can be Read

Scientists have discovered a way to watch words form in the human brain in a breakthrough that could one day allow those with severe disabilities to 'speak'.
The researchers have found a way to peer into the deepest recesses of the brain in order to watch words forming. Using electrodes they found the area of the brain that is involved in creating the 40 or so sounds that form the English language.
They then discovered that each of these sounds has its own signal which they believe could eventually allow a computer programme to read what people want to say by the power of their thoughts.
The mind-reading research was undertaken by a team from the Centre for Innovation in Neuroscience and Technology at the University of Washington.
Led by its director, Eric Leuthardt, they studied four people who suffered from severe epilepsy who each had 64 electrodes implanted into their heads. The original reason for this was an attempt to try to find the cause of their epilepsy but Leuthardt also monitored the areas of the brain where speech is formed.
The subjects were asked to make four repeated sounds – ‘oo’, ‘ah’, ‘eh’, and ‘ee’. The team then monitored the Wenicke’s and Broca’s areas of the brain for signals related to speech formation.
The scientists were then able to pick out the corresponding electrical signals, and while these four signals will not be enough to form sentences, further research could lead to this becoming possible. Leuthardt told the Sunday Times: ‘What it shows is that the brain is not the black box that we have philosophically assumed it to be for generations past.
‘I'm not going to say that I can fully read someone's mind. I can't. But I have evidence now that it is possible.’
During his study, Leuthardt also found that the brain generates a signal when people just think about the sounds – but it was very different to when they speak it. This has led to the implication that doctors could one day read people's private thoughts as well as what they want to say.
And it is hoped the research will one day give people with locked-in syndrome the chance to speak – as currently electrode treatment on the brain can be carried out those that are severely ill.
It could, in principal, also lead to technology that could read the mind without surgery - and even lead forms of communication which work only by thought. The research was published in the Journal of Neural Engineering.

Blackberry Playbook

The Playbook makes a great first impression, but it's too reliant on a BlackBerry smartphone for my liking.
We’re drowning in a sea of 10-inch tablets, so it was a relief to slide the BlackBerry Playbook out of the box to discover a petite 7-inch slate that’s even lighter than the iPad 2. I think the 7-inch form factor is more practical for road warriors, so it makes sense that business-focused RIM should design a 7-inch tablet as a companion for its high-end BlackBerry smartphones.

Actually “companion” perhaps isn’t the right word, as it’s more of a symbiotic relationship between the Playbook and BlackBerry phones. I’ll go into more detail later, but the cynic in me suspects that the Playbook is partially designed to lock-in BlackBerry users tempted by other tablets.

Perhaps RIM is worried that BlackBerry users might buy an Apple or Android tablet, fall in love with the OS and then ditch their BlackBerry smartphone (known as the halo effect).  In order to fight back, RIM is giving BlackBerry owners a tablet of their own.

Once you owned a Playbook you’d be much less likely to abandon your BlackBerry smartphone because you’d lose access to some Playbook features. Even if I was a BlackBerry user, this kind of customer lock-in would certainly make me consider the Android and Apple alternatives before taking the plunge with the Playbook.

The 16GB Playbook retails for $US499 and there are also 32GB and 64GB models. There’s no official word on Australian pricing although BlackBerrystore.com.au is taking orders for $696. I expect the official local pricing ot come in lower.

At $696 the 16GB Playbook is a little pricey but that’s easily forgotten when you get your hands on it. It’s a delight to hold, weighing in at a mere 400gm and only 9.7mm thick.

The black button-less styling adds to the slimming effect and this sleek tablet certainly has a touch of elegance about it. The Playbook comes with a felt-lined soft cover which would easily slip into a small bag or perhaps even a large jacket pocket. There are two $68 cases listed on that BlackBerry store website - one is a journal-like leather case and the other converts into a stand.

The Playbook sports a bright 7-inch LCD 1024x600 display with bright whites, great contrast and decent viewing angles. Under the bonnet you’ll find a dual-core 1GHz ARM Cortex power plant accompanied by 1GB of RAM, so it’s not short on grunt. There’s a 3 MP webcam embedded in the bezel (at the top in landscape mode), with a second 5 MP camera on the back. Discrete speakers are embedded on either side of the bezel.

Across the top edge of the Playbook is a power button along with play/pause and volume buttons and a 3.5mm audio jack. Across the bottom edge are micro-USB and micro-HDMI ports along with a charging point, but no micro-SD card slot.

About now one of the Playbook’s key drawbacks becomes apparent. There’s no SIM card slot, you can only access the internet via wifi (802.11g/n at 2.4GHz or 5GHz) or Bluetooth tethering.
You can tether the Playbook to any smartphone via Bluetooth for internet access, not just a BlackBerry smartphone, but it’s a temperamental beast and I couldn’t get it work with an iPhone 4, HTC Desire or BlackBerry Torch 9800 even though they paired successfully. It’s easier just to generate a wifi hotspit with your phone.

RIM says it intends to offer 3G and 4G Playbooks "in future". Even if I was tempted by the Playbook, I’d seriously consider holding out for a 3G/4G version - especially if you want to use this tablet on the road.
Perhaps the killer blow to the Playbook is that you can’t use the native mail, contacts and calendar apps unless you’re tethered via Bluetooth to a modern BlackBerry using a feature called BlackBerry Bridge.
Compatible phones include the Torch 9800, Bold 9780/9700, Curve 3G/8520/8900 and Pearl 3G. Setting up BlackBerry Bridge is also overly complicated, as I’ll get to later. Using it means you're chewing through the battery on both your phone and the Playbook. There is a Bridge Browser which supposedly works when you're in Bridge mode, but I found it so slow as to be completely useless.

You obviously lose access to these Bridge apps on the Playbook if you’re on a plane and can’t wirelessly tether to your BlackBerry. You also lose them if your BlackBerry is out of action - for example due to a flat battery, or you just left it at home. Now you’re stuck with using the Playbook’s web browser to access features such as email and calendar (assuming you’ve got wifi access).

Of course this depends on whether your corporate email system allows browser-based access. If a BlackBerry is the only way you can access your work email remotely then you’re screwed. If that’s the case then other tablets can’t access your work email either, so the Playbook still might seem an attractive option.
I know Apple and Android would get slammed if they introduced these kinds of restrictions to their devices, so I don’t see why RIM shouldn’t cope some flak for it. Native mail, contacts and calendar apps are supposedly coming to the Playbook in a future software update, but I’d say not including them from day one is a major stuff up on RIM’s part which plays into the competition’s hands.

As soon as I held the Playbook I wanted to like it, but RIM has gone out of its way to make that difficult. At this point, even if I was a BlackBerry owner, I’d be tempted to wait for the 3G model and a standalone mail app so the tablet wasn’t so dependent on my smartphone. Meanwhile I’d want to spend some time with a 7-inch Honeycomb tablet such as Acer’s A100 before pledging my allegiance to the Playbook.
On Friday I’ll take a look at the Tablet OS interface and apps, then next week I’ll wrap up with a look at the Playbook’s integration with BlackBerry smartphones.
