Pokémon: Let’s Go - how to transfer your pokémon Go collection

'Pokemon: Let's Go' game

Pokémon:  Let’s Go was recently launched and lot of pokémon fans are seeking how they can move their pokémon Go collection to the latest.
One awesome feature of the pokémon: Let’s Go is that it integrates with the pokémon Go mobile game. Synchronizing these two games is slightly not difficult. However, there are some tips you should be aware of before executing the sync.
Note:  Be decisive, especially beginners, once you transfer your pokémon Go to the new pokémon: Let’s Go game, you can’t send it back to pokémon Go.  Also, not every Pokémon Go collection is transferable. However, you can only transfer first generation pokémon because Let’s Go is a modified version of the original Game Boy called Yellow.
Special pokémon event, like a santa hat or Pikachu wearing sunglasses, also can’t be transferred. Meanwhile, the brand-new monster – Meltan – new to pokémon Go can be transferred to Let’s Go game.

Simple steps to transferring your Pokémon Go Collection to the latest Pokémon: Let's Go 

Take your first step by sync your devices. You can do this by going to the main menu in Let’s Go and select Open pokémon Go settings. Immediately after that is done, the game will begin a search for your pokémon Go account. During the search, open your pokémon Go and first tap the big poké ball displaying in the center of your screen and then “settings” in the top right corner. Scroll down to the bottom and tap Connect to Nintendo Switch and here comes a notification that a pokémon Go account has been found – Choose ‘YES’ to sync and that’ll be all.


How to transfer your creatures

You may want to reinforce your pokémon party with monsters (creatures) you already had in pokémon Go. It is possible to have this done, but it won’t be a straightforward procedure. For you to access the transfer feature, you should head to the “Go Park Complex” in the game, which can be found in Fuchsia City. It’ll cost at least a few hours before you can be able to perform any transfer – Being that Fuchsia City is a dwelling pace to the fifth of the game’s eight gyms.

How To Secure Your Website

How To Secure Your Website


A secured website

Today we’re gonna be discussing on internet security, preferably, tips to securing your website from malicious attacks.



You probably might have been asking questions like:
  • What are the ways of securing a website?
  • How to secure your website for free
  • How to protect your website from hackers and malicious attacks

Do You Really Think Securing Your Website Doesn't Worth?

You may be thinking that hackers or rather attackers can't consider your website as one of their relevant tool. Let me tell you, no website is useless to hackers.
You may not have those sensitive info attackers are searching for but your server might be useful to them as it can be used to spread spam, malicious files or even bitcoin mining. Are you surprised?
And if you are running an online store, then your customer’s sensitive info might be at risk if all you do is selling online without paying little of your attention to your website’s privacy and security.

Here Are Tips To Secure Your Website From Attackers


Easily Detect Vulnerability Using A Website Scanner

Using a website scanner will help search for vulnerability threat and other issues running in your website’s background.
There are different kind of Website Scanners, we have the; external, internal and penetration malware scanners.

An external malware scanner functions similarly to search engine bots, they come into a website and crawl every web pages in search for malware or any malicious link available. Meanwhile, internal malware scanner will only read your website’s source code. This is because, hackers can eventually inject bad scripts into your database using any HTML Form Field element available on your website, for example, a login form. Such practice is called SQL Injection by which hackers can access either your personal/sensitive information or your customers’, modify your content or even bring down your website standard.

Penetration testers on the other hand, searches for weakness or loop hole in your website’s source code.



Always Keep Your Software Updated

You shouldn't be told this before you act. You should learn to make it a duty by subsequently checking for updates of your employed software -What am I talking about?
I mean the software you employed on your website such as CMS and your server operating system.

Updating these software will eventually block or repair any security breach initially present so hackers won’t be able to break into your website.


Employ An Automated Malware Removal

This is compulsory for every website owner as an automated website scanner will unintentionally get rid of threats from your website immediately they are detected.

A good example of an automated website scanner should;

  • Protect your database from SQL injections,
  • Prevent your website from being in search engine blacklist,
  • Notify you of any changes in file and File Transfer Protocol (FTP),
  • Secure your server ports preventing unauthorised users from accessing your site.

World’s first foldable smartphone unveiled; not by Samsung or Huawei

World’s first foldable smartphone unveiled; not by Samsung or Huawei

flexpai foldable phone

This came up so surprisingly to everyone that the first foldable smartphone was unveiled on November 1 without any previous leak or announcement of an incoming beast smartphone.

You think this foldable phone was unveiled by Samsung or LG or Huawei?

You guess right as everyone would think, but it's none of the above listed tech companies. “A start-up company has taken the lead of foldable smartphones.

Royole, founded by Stanford University graduates in 2012, unveiled the first foldable smartphone in the world called FlexPai at an event in Beijing on Wednesday, 31 October. However, shipping of the device will begin in December.




FlexPai can be seen as a smartphone and a tablet, its uniqueness is as a result of it being able to fold across its display to a portable pocket-sized smartphone. Meanwhile, it behaves as a tablet when its.

This has been Samsung’s dream since 2008 when it released its prototype of what a foldable smartphone would look like. Samsung is close to achieving this goal as the company is all set to launch its first foldable smartphone but has missed its chance of becoming the first in the world.

The device occupies 7.8 inches from corner-to-corner with a 1920 x 1440 screen resolution (4:3 aspect ratio). Its adjustment behaviour is just perfect, when on half fold, all displaying information is pictured on half of the screen.

When folded, three screens are formed; primary display (810 x 1440 with 16:9 aspect ratio), secondary display (720 x 1440 with 18:9 aspect ratio) and an edge display (390 x 1440 resolution, 21:6 aspect ratio).

According to Royole, you could fold FlexPai display more than 200,000 times before it would likely reach its break limit.

Another high-spec feature of the device is its dual-lens camera setup which consist of a 20MP telephoto lens and a 16MP wide-angle lens. Royole says you can bend these camera lenses to shoot objects at special angles.

Memory-wise, the phone is packed with 6GB or 8GB RAM and a storage of 128GB, 256GB or 512GB.



How Much Is The FlexPai Foldable Smartphone?

The price of this device ranges between £1,000-£1,450 in the UK. In the US, only the 128GB and 256GB storage variants are available with their prices tagged at $1,318 and $1,469 respectively.

Back and front view of Xiaomi Mi Mix 3

The beast smartphone Xiaomi teased about earlier was revealed on October 25. This is the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 which is found to be the first in the world to debut 10GB RAM and 5G Network connectivity. Though it’s not the first to parent four cameras.

The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 (as revealed by earlier leaks via tweets) was designed to own nearly a full screen-to-body ratio of 93.4 percent and it actually has no notch anywhere on the surface. The all screen display holds an OLED with a 6.4-inch sized in a 1080×2340 pixels panel (19.5:9 aspect ratio).
Still on the design, there’s a sliding mechanism between the screen and the body such that when you slide the screen downward it reveals a 24MP selfie camera and a 2MP sensor on the front.



On the back of the device sits a dual 12-megapixel wide-angle and telephoto cameras and a fingerprint sensor situated far below the camera's position so you won't be hitting your camera whenever you try using the fingerprint sensor.

The smartphone function alongside a Snapdragon 845 chipset processor and it’s very responsive being that under the device sits a whooping 10GB RAM.

How sweet and amazing it would seems when you switch between Fortnite, PUBG and … games without any of them reloading?

Xiaomi claims a screen-to-body ratio of 93.4 percent, and has cut down on the “chin” at the bottom of the display by nearly 4.5 millimeters compared to the Mi Mix 2S.
Xiaomi didn't make any mistake when it said the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 will be the first to feature 5G network connectivity, it actually happened but the 5G variant will be released in Europe early next year.

Bug! Early adopters of the Pixel 3 & 3XL are having buzzing speakers, poor memory management issues

Bug! Early adopters of the Pixel 3 & 3XL are having buzzing speakers, poor memory management issues

a view of the google pixel 3

It's just a few days back when the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL were officially announced and today reports are flying to the internet that these Pixel smartphones are entitled to have some malfunctions.

Early users and reviewers of the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL phones reported that some features are not working properly especially with the larger Pixel 3XL which majority of the reports claim that the speakers are buzzing and distorting, especially the bottom one; a similar issue previously observed on the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2XL models.

Further explaining the reports, there’s buzzing at certain frequencies which can be observed when apps using a specific frequency in sound production is in use.

Again, it was observed that the lower speaker is louder than the upper speaker, we initially thought it's an issue, however,  it was addressed by Google saying it’s their way of styling/designing the pixel 3 and 3XL devices.

Finally, the Pixel 3 and 3XL were reported to be suffering from low RAM management. Especially with the Pixel 3 which users claim apps are restarting or force closing, certain apps are closing other apps, apps are dropped from RAM due to low memory management.

Other minor reports include Camera issue which are probably caused by the poor memory management.

Hopefully Google will handle these issues probably by introducing new software update. However, we’ll update this post as soon as there's a fix to the issues, be it temporary or permanent.

Xiaomi is set to unleash the Mi Mix3: World’s First 10GB RAM & 5G Connectivity Smartphone

Xiaomi is set to unleash the Mi Mix3: World’s First 10GB RAM & 5G Connectivity Smartphone

Xiaomi body build _  with 24MP Dual Selfie Camera

Lot of high-end smartphones have been released during this last quarter of the year. Xiaomi is fully set to take the lead of complex mobile technology as it has confirmed to announce the then rumored Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 on October 25.




Some unique features of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 has been singly disclosed on twitter by the well-known Chinese Smartphone Manufacturer, Xiaomi.

The first mind-blowing leak is the one which addresses how fast the smartphone will be.
The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 will be powered by a massive 10GB RAM which means the smartphone will be lag-free. Hopefully, Xiaomi is the first in the world to design a smartphone with extreme performance as it should be in a 10GB RAM.
Smartphones are becoming even smarter than PCs.

10GB RAM-------------



Another tweet by Xiaomi also confirmed the availability of a 5G network connectivity feature in the Mi Mix3. Remember Samsung is also packing the 5G network on its upcoming Galaxy S10.
Since the Mi Mix 3 launch is a few days away, probably it may be the first to feature the greatest internet speed.

5G Network--------------


In addition to the 10GB RAM, a Snapdragon 845 processor chipset will be housed in the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3. With this achievement, the smartphone will be much more than a phone; it’s a gaming device. Say goodbye to phone lag as you as you run multiple tasks with the 10GB RAM/Snapdragon 845 processor Xiaomi Mi Mix 3.




It feels nice to have an 2,340 x 1,080 pixels (19.5:9 aspect ratio) all-screen display smartphone with no notch, no waste of pixels. And again, there’s a graduated 24MP selfie camera which can only be seen up the device when you slide down the screen. This is pretty much styling and seems great, with 24MP front camera you can shoot high-quality selfie pictures and video calls.
As seen in the embedded video above, Xiaomi made the sliding factor so simple that users could easily reveal the selfie camera with a simple sliding of the screen.




The smartphone will be available in three storage options; 64GB, 128GB and 256GB.

These are the leaked specifications of Xiaomi Mi Mix 3. Hopefully, the 10GB RAM, 24MP selfie camera may turn out true as they were leaked via tweets by the company. However, the launch date is October 25 when all rumors will be wrapped off as the specifications and specs become official.
