5. Mi Port - single cable that connects Mi TV Bar to the display and carries all signals to and from the display for a cleaner look

6. Understated transparent stand makes Mi TV 4 look suspended in the air even without mounting on the wall

Facebook Will Soon Introduce Advertisement on Facebook Videos

The CEO of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg,  is set to introduce advertisement on Facebook videos. As you can see on YouTube when you want to stream a Video, there will be an advertisement that will be displayed first, which you can skip after 5 seconds.

This new advertisement coming to Facebook videos is called Mid-roll Ad because they will appear or interrupt, whenever a user is watching a video for about 20 seconds but this advertisement will only be available for any Facebook video that are at least 90 seconds long.

So with this, Facebook users or publishers will be able to monetize their videos and earn money while Facebook will take 45% for all sales to itself - just like YouTube does. Very soon, all videos on Facebook will have this advertisement and Facebook users are now watching 100 million hours of video per day so this will generate cool revenue to Mark Zuckerberg.

However, this ad has been tested for live videos and the new rollout will be available for all videos on Facebook. We also know about the notifications provided by Facebook about the introduction of ads in Facebook groups.

Do you think the introduction of ads on every aspect of Facebook is a good move by Mark??

How To Use Apple AirPods On Android Devices

After their reveal a few months ago alongside the headphone jack-less iPhone 7, you can finally buy Apple's AirPods. Since the only way to use earbuds or headphones with the iPhone 7 is via Bluetooth, these are Apple's new official listening solution.

At $159, AirPods aren't cheap, especially considering that you can get a decent pair of Bluetooth earbuds for around $30. However, if only the best from Apple will do, you might be excited to get your hands on a pair. If you also have an Android device but don't have money to spend on headphones for it since the AirPods broke the bank, here's how to pair Apple's newest creation with your Android device.

First, place the AirPods into their charging case. Open the lid, then find the little pairing button on the back of the case. Hold that in for a few seconds and you'll see the light on the case flash white. This means that the Pods are in pairing mode, so open up the Blue-tooth settings on your Android device. Tap the AirPods in the device list, and accept any prompts that come up.

This will pair the AirPods to your Android phone (or Windows PC that supports Bluetooth), and they'll act like a standard pair of Bluetooth buds.
Apparently, they still pause music when tapped, even on non-Apple devices. Of course, the AirPods can't activate Siri or instantly switch between devices when used with Android, but at least you can listen to music with them.

Tips On How To Protect Your SmartPhone In Case You Misplace It Or It Gets Stolen

It’s your most precious possession, your pride and joy..but do you really take care of your Android phone as well as you could? Putting it in a case isn't enough. Ask yourself, "If my phone was lost or stolen right now, would my data be protected, and would I be able to locate the device?" If the answer is no, these tips are for you.

Use a lock screen
We know: using lock screens used to be a pain in the backside when all you wanted to do was see if you’d received any email. But now that you can use lock screen widgets there’s no reason not to lock your phone properly with a code, fingerprint, gesture or face. Newer Android devices come with fingerprint scanners for a good reason: they keep your device secure, and are conveniently quick. Not using a lock screen is the Android equivalent of going out and leaving your front door open for burglars.

Hide your passwords
Android’s Settings > Security menu has an option to make all passwords visible, and while it means well - it makes entering accurate passwords simpler - it’s a security risk if you’re entering passwords where you can be seen, for example when you’re on the train or in a crowd. This one’s best left disabled.

Hide and lock your apps
A good app locker can be a real godsend, not just for security reasons but for privacy protection and to ensure kids can’t wipe or move anything important. A locker such as AppLock can keep others out of your photos, contacts, Facebook, your phone’s settings and anything else you might not appreciate them meddling with.

Track your phone with Android Device Manager
This is more of a “what to do if you didn't protect your phone” tip: if it’s lost or misplaced, Android Device Manager can find it, remotely lock it and in worst case scenarios, remotely wipe it. Don’t disable remote location tracking or location services on your device, though, as if you do then ADM won’t be able to find it if it goes missing.

Configure location services properly
Make sure your device is tracking GPS properly: if it isn't, it’ll be much harder to track with something like Android Device Manager if you misplace it.

Check your app notifications and settings
A recent report found that ten of the most popular flashlight apps were asking for ridiculous amounts of power including the ability to track your location and even deleting apps and files. And of course it’s not just flashlight apps: lots of dodgy downloads are designed to harvest users’ data or con them into handing over financial details or actual money. Make sure you’re on top of your apps’ permissions - find out how here.

Be suspicious of unknown sources
When even Google’s own app store is plagued with problematic apps, it’s very sensible to be suspicious about any download site or service you don’t already know and trust. That’s not to say new sources are bad. Just choose them wisely.

Use messengers with encryption
If your device encryption is on by default - that is, scrambling your data in such a way it can’t just be copied and looked at - that doesn't mean the data you send over the Internet is encrypted. To ensure your communications are private, use an encrypted platform such as Telegram rather than unencrypted alternatives.

Install updates
Sometimes app updates are minor things that make no noticeable difference to anything at all, but sometimes those updates contain essential fixes for security problems that you can’t see but that potential attackers can. People who don’t update to the latest versions remain vulnerable, so it’s a very good idea to stay up to date with app and Android updates.
