  • 6 Tips to Help You Recognize Fake Gadgets

    Top brands have lots of copycats, and sometimes fakes are made so well you’re almost unable to recognize them.

    We at Bright Side have gathered some tips that will help you recognize fake gadgets before buying them.

    Manufacturers of counterfeit products often neglect package design. The official retailer will always take care of even the slightest details of design and packaging of their own goods.

    Take a close look at the package, paying attention to the print quality: the font should be legible and consistent everywhere. Nothing should be loose inside. Manufacturers always fix their goods well so that nothing gets damaged during transportation. Even the seams and corners of the packaging film should be impeccable.

    First of all, pay attention to the material, then, take a look at the fonts, check the charger, take a look at the fonts and, last but not least, take a closer look at wires and plugs.

    Also, pay attention to the quality of the insulation and the symbols on it. The wire should be flexible and even-colored, while the markings mustn’t be erasable.

  • Easy ways to dramatically reduce your mobile data usage on Android

     

    1. Restrict background data

    The easiest way to save data is to tell your apps (or the Android system itself) to restrict background data. Background data is all that internet traffic that goes on when you're not actually using an app: email syncing, feeds updating, weather widgets and so on.

    2. Ditch the Facebook app

    It's pretty well known among Android aficionados that the Facebook app is one of the biggest consumers of data, not to mention its high resource use and battery drain. So why not replace it with something less demanding?

     

     

    3. Disable auto-updating apps

    Another huge drain of your data allowance comes from the occasional bout of Google Play app updating. If you have the Play Store set to auto-update apps, even over a data connection, this could be chewing its way through your allowance every month without you even knowing.

    4. Use Opera's video compression

    The Opera for Android browser now has a very useful video compression option, which can save you a load of data if you're frequently watching videos on the go. To use it, simply download the Opera browser, go to Settings > Data savings and tick the box that says Video compression. This setting not only saves you data, but also means that videos are more likely to load faster

     

     

    5. Compress Chrome pages

    If you use Chrome for all your web traffic, this tip alone can save you 30-35 percent of yif our mobile browser data consumption. The Data Saver option compresses web pages before loading them in your browser.

    Using Data Saver does slow things down a tiny bit, but you quickly get used to it and a moment's delay is worth it when your data lasts so much longer. Just launch Chrome, tap the three dots in the top right-hand corner, go down to Settings and then to Data Saver. Keep an eye on the graph to see your data saving

  • Zlatan Ibrahimovic update: Manchester United star eases injury concerns

     was forced off with a knee injury deep into stoppage time during ’s Europa League quarter-finals second leg with Anderlecht.

    The former Sweden captain’s knee buckled after landing awkwardly just before extra-time, with the Old Trafford clash level at 1-1.

    , whose side were eventual 2-1 winners, feared the worst after the game, admitting he’s expecting “fairly negative” news.

     

    But United left-back Shaw was much more optimistic, telling reporters: "He's fine. He was walking around in the changing room."

    Ibrahimovic is United’s leading goalscorer this season - with 28 in all competitions - and will be a huge loss in their push for a top-four finish.

    United also saw defender Marcos Rojo leave the field on a stretcher in the first half, leaving them dangerously short of options at the back.

  • Coffee Chains Prove Addis is Still Thirsty for Brew

    Addis Abeba’s cafe culture stretches across all walks of life. At any time of day, the City’s cafes are teeming with customers who stop in between appointments, or even conduct business over a cup of coffee. Lingering for a morning over a newspaper rented or bought from wandering vendors and speaking to friends is a popular way to spend time for both locals and tourists in Addis.

     

    “I have been a customer from the beginning. The coffee here has a special taste,” says Daniel Gebremaryam, a customer at Abyssinia Coffee. “The space is wider and you can spend a long time over coffee than in other places.”

     

    Abyssinia Coffee began exporting coffee in 1990, and opened a coffee shop in Addis two years ago. So far, it operates in two locations. “We process coffee for the local market, which is sold in our café, after being ground and packaged,” explained Abiy Demise, export Manager. “But we do not get the standard of coffee that we want because the government does not allow the use of export standard coffee locally..”

     

    Lately there has been a boom in the number of coffee shop chains spreading across the city. They include Kaldi’s Cafe, Bilo’s, and Abyssinia Coffee. The majority of these coffee shop chains also sell processed coffee which has been roasted and ground on both the local and international markets.

     

    “The 25 years of experience that we have in the sector will help us to be competitive in the coffee market, which will help generate foreign currency,” says Andamlak Ashenafi, Abyssinia’s coffee sales manager. Even though Abyssinia does not export their coffee, it has found a significant demand on the local market, and amongst tourists in Addis.

  • Man Discovers Incredible Hidden Fortune Inside Tank He Bought For Just £30K

    A man bought a tank for £30,000 and what he found inside could make him a millionaire.

     Buying a tank with your spare cash seems a bit of an unusual spend by anyone’s standards, but buying one and then discovering it had £2 million pounds worth of gold bars inside, must be pretty much unheard of.

     Nick Mead from Northamptonshire – who has the unusual hobby of tank restorer – came across the valuable stash while he was doing up his new Russian T54/69, (not pictured in the article) which he bought off eBay.

    The 55-year-old, along with his pal Todd Marshall, filmed himself while he was opening up the diesel tank in case there were weapons, which he would need to alert police of.

     

    Instead he unbelievably found five gold bars, each weighing 12 pounds and all together, totalling approximately £2 million pounds.

    The two lucky guys have since handed the bars over to police for closer analysis and Nick has been given a receipt for his find, which he’s wisely placed in a safety deposit box.

    Unfortunately Nick may not be able to keep his treasure, although he still seems pretty pleased with his ‘beautiful tank,’ which he has added to his collection of 150 military vehicles on his farm.

    Northamptonshire Police have been contacted about the situation, but have said they could not comment due to ‘operational reasons.’
