The Alcatel brand has a quite interesting history behind it but it’s not stopping them from coming up with devices meant to be at par with the higher end names in the industry today. Following their launch of the Alcatel Idol 4 and the Alcatel Idol 4s, available both in the US and in other parts of the world, Alcatel is yet again causing a stir in the entry-level range with their introduction of Alcatel Fierce 4 to the US market.

In today’s gadget world where bigger seems to be better, Fierce 4 will never feel left out. This is a 5.5-inch beast, offering a large-screen for those who don’t like watching their favorite media on small screens. With the rumors that this will be a more extremely affordable handset than their earlier flagship phones, it’s no wonder that Fierce 4 is being anticipated by users who want a big screen but are on a budget.


On the outside, you will get a 1280x720 resolution display right under a sheet of Dragontrail glass, which happens to be an uncommon material considering that the industry prefers Gorilla Glass.


On top of the display of Fierce 4 sits its 5-megapixel front shooter with an 84-degree wide-angle lens perfect for taking group selfies. On the back, there is an 8 megapixel shooter with sensor.

Under the Hood

Alcatel Fierce 4 features a 1.1GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 chipset. This also comes with 2GB RAM complimented by the 16GB native storage expandable to as much as 32GB through its dedicated MicroSD card slot.


This new addition to the Alcatel line is being powered by a 2,500mAh battery, which, once combined with lower resolution display and its low-power processor, is more than enough to let you use this phone from morning till night.

Operating System

Fierce 4 is running Android Marshmallow straight out of the box and there are still no clues whether it will get a Nougat update anytime soon.

However, you have to remember that with all these things on paper, it is pretty obvious that Fierce 4 is an entry-level device at most. It means that if you are looking for the greatest and the latest, you might be better off if you will turn your head somewhere else.

What is more enticing is its price tag of $70, which serves to be the determining factor if you are after a secondary phone or you are planning to give a loved one a first smartphone.

This is a shockingly low price but expect that there will be specs trade-offs for the phone to be more affordable. Good example is its 720-pixel screen resolution, something that is too low for its expansive display. There is also the lower powered processor, and the 8-megapixel camera.

While Alcatel Fierce 4 is being marketed for an affordable price, the cut down comes at a cost. But still, if you need an entry-level phone that is decent enough for casual use, then, this one is a great choice.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is the long-awaited return of the company to the market of phablet. While the tech giant released Noted 5 last year, it only did to some countries only. Thankfully, for all Note fans, Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will be released globally. But, is it really the best big phone today?


Samsung Galaxy Note 7’s design feels like the pinnacle of the smartphone design of the company. It is identical to Galaxy S7 Edge, other than the fact that it is much symmetrical perfectly the back and the front. But, Note 7 feels more comfortable in the hand. Its rounded edges also feel much secure.


Samsung Galaxy Note 7 takes pride from having a 5.7” screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 QHD. Its increased size also means that this takes a negligible dip in the PPI, yet even eagle-eyed graphics nut can’t hardly spot the difference from S7 Edge.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 also comes with super AMOLED technology. Contrast and color accuracy are perfect and their maximum brightness has been boosted, which makes it handy for outdoor use, even in direct sunlight.

Battery Life and Performance

The Note series are said to be for power users. Yet, it’s no longer the case. Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is basically identical with Galaxy S7 in terms of component level. It comes with 4GB RAM and octacore Exynos 990 CPU. Their only difference is that Samsung Galaxy Note 7 features 64GB ROM instead of 32GB.

The battery capacity of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is 3500 mAh, which is exceptional. For testers, it’s the best battery life they have seen. Note 7 also have USB Type C port as well as fast charging, which only means that it is easy and quick to juice up.

Camera and Other Features

Apart from S Pen, the biggest feature of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is full IP68 water as well as dust-proofing. While Galaxy S7 reintroduced this kind of protection to the range of Samsung Galaxy S, this device is said to be the first in Note series to be completely waterproofed at this level.

Note 7 also comes with a blue-light filter to make late night use easier on your eyes. It’s a welcome addition and one that many people are hoping that the company would bring to its handsets through a software update. The shortcuts of Samsung’s Edge are back in Samsung Galaxy Note 7.

The Bottom Line

All in all, Samsung Galaxy Note 7 feels like the second version of Galaxy S7, yet it is refined, tweaked, and sports several extra features. It isn’t a bad thing by any means as Galaxy S7 is still a great phone. However, Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is much better. It is packed with exceptional features, comes with topnotch blistering performance and hardware, and has a good battery life, making it as the best phone of Samsung in terms of battery life, design, productivity, and so much more.


If your Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is locked to use with any specific carrier and you want to unlock it to use with any compatible gsm sim cards worldwide. Then you can Unlock Samsung Galaxy Note 7 with the help of unlock codes which are the safest and secure method to unlock any device.

Distributing audio over Ethernet is in many ways better than analogue radio. For example the quality of the sound doesn't suffer because of the distance. To send audio over network you may need a long cable which is not always a possibility or use a special software that allows sharing microphone or webcam over network and thus sending audio wirelessly over any distance.

USB Network Gate is a specifically developed software that creates a shared access to a USB microphone over network, or any USB device for that matter. No wires on your desk - everything is neat and clean with this reliable solution that is also easy-to-use.

To share USB mic over Ethernet you just have to do the following:
- Download and install USB Network Gate to your computer and to other computer participating in connection, i.e. the one that is sharing the device and the ones that are going to access this device.
- Open ‘Share local USB devices’ tab, find the device you will be sharing and click ‘Share’ button next to it. You can customize connection settings now or whenever needed. Now remote computers can see and access and work with this device.

Additionally USB Network Gate allows accessing a USB microphone in remote session. It is really handy since once you connect to a remote machine via RDP all USB ports are inaccessible plus there is no audio input/output functionality. USB Network Gate fixes it and lets you work with your local devices on a remote machine as if they were connected to it physically.

USB Network Gate values your privacy, so separate logins will have separate sessions with audio streams and accessible devices. There is no need to worry about confidentiality.

The benefits you get when using the software for accessing USB microphone over network:
- Remote access to any USB device.
- Work cross-platform on Windows, Linux, Mac, and Android.
- No additional hardware or software is required.
- Works with virtual machine and in remote desktop session.
- Share a device only with specific users.

Unfortunately non-profit organizations tend to underestimate the power of social media marketing. Their main focus becomes solely on their website with the hopes that they are going to be able to draw enough traffic to meet their needs. Yet there is a huge potential market that is waiting to hear from them in the social media platforms, where they need to build healthy audiences of Fans, Likes, Viewers & Followers.

The success for non profit organizations is all about getting the word out about what they stand for and what they have by way of goals.

The main priorities of many non profit organizations is to generate contributions and donations and recognition for the cause that they stand for. The social media platforms are perfect for really helping to reach these goals. Social media is all about engagement - and generating donations and contributions only works through the proper engagement with Fans and Followers who are sensitive to the needs of the non profit organization. This becomes the target market that has to be sought after when building the social media campaign.

A mention on Facebook or a Share on Instagram of some action that the non profit organization has carried out has a dramatic impact through engagement. This is something that the social world readily wants to share because it is for a good cause.

Recent studies have shown that more than half of the non profit organizations that have built up significant Likes and Followers on social media platforms have been able to escalate their donations. The goal is to focus on the Facebook shares and likes, and the Twitter tweets, to bring the end result of a contribution or a donation in most cases for the non profit organizations.

These organizations are totally dependent in most circumstances on the willingness of the public to contribute to their costs. It has also been discovered that social media is growing three times faster as leading campaigns for non profit organizations compared to email campaigns.

One of the stumbling blocks that non profit organizations face is that the majority of their staff is there on a volunteer basis, and they are stretched thin when it comes to the obligations that they have taken on for the organization. Most often there is just not enough help to go around to be able to dedicate their time it to the social media marketing campaigns that are necessary to make them successful for the non profits.

Non profit organizations also have the option of being able to take advantage of support services that can help build their Likes much quicker than what they may be able to do – without resorting to just buying them. These are services that are offered by highly-regarded companies including

For individuals that really have found a non-profit organization that they would like to support but are not able to financially, they might want to consider offering their services as a social media marketer. Of course this means that one has to have the knowledge and expertise to do this, but it is not something that cannot be learned. The most common the platform that non profits tend to be drawn to is Facebook, although many do use Twitter as well as LinkedIn and YouTube.
