It’s no more a breaking news that Capital One has teamed with Amazon to allow owners of Amazon’s Echo smart speaker system pay their bills plus get other account information through voice commands.

The Amazon’s Echo speakers use a voice-command service called “Alexa” to help users perform various tasks. Tasks like turning on smart lights, playing music or setting a kitchen timer.

The number of so-called “skills” Alexa can perform has been growing since the Echo became widely available last year and now numbers more than 100. Cool...

The Capital One service will be the first time a credit-card company has been involved, however. Capital One will let users check their credit card balance, review recent transactions, pay their credit card bill and perform other tasks simply by talking to the device. Amazing I will say..

Users can sign up for the service via the Amazon Echo setup app. There they can set up a checking account link if they want to pay their credit card balance via the Echo.

Now, to set up a session with Capital One, they give a voice command such as: “Alexa, ask Capital One for my Quicksilver Card balance” or “Alexa, ask Capital One to pay my credit card bill.”

Security concerns have swirled around Amazon’s Echo since it debuted, since the $179 device is always “on.” But Ken Dodelin, vice president of digital products management at McLean, Virginia-based Capital One, has assured that the service is secure.

Here’s what Dodelin said:
“As a bank we’re much attuned to security concerns,”
He further added
When a user of the service asks Alexa to perform a Capitol One task, they will be prompted for a four-digit personal key that users set up when they enable the skill. The key is optional, but the default is set to on,

After a user says the key, the session with Capital One will be unlocked for five minutes, and then the user has to say the key again.

The service will work via Alexa on the Echo, the recently announced $129.99 Amazon Tap and the $89.99 Echo Dot, which are both variations of the Echo speaker; and Amazon’s Fire TV devices.

Ever admired that programmer you met somewhere some time ago and wished you were him or her? Not a big deal, if you have ever and is still dreaming of becoming an android app developer, then there are some things you should know before you even consider trying to start.

If you wish to become an android app developer, obviously, you can’t just sit down, sleep, wake up one day and say to yourself  “ Today, I am going to develop an android app for myself or any organization that cares

Android app developer

In everything we do in life, there are certain prices we have to pay. This indeed is a fair deal comparing to the benefits that far awaits us if we eventually succeed. (You can’t imagine how happy you will be._)

If you wish to become an android app developer, then, there are certain things you must and should do, to prepare yourself for the long race. And here on this page, we have outlined only but a few. LET’S GO:

1.] Learn How a Computer Works


One unavoidable step in becoming or learning to program / develop an app, is knowing the very basics of how a computer works. The reason for this is because; let’s face it, if you are going to be developing apps, you need to have some idea of how a computer works.

Yes, you need to know some key things and NO; you don’t need to know everything. but the fact still remains, and that is, you do need to know how the computer actually works, how a program works, what that program is made of and you need to understand some of the basic terminology used in the industry – bits, bytes, conditionals, loops, etc.

So, your very first step is to do a little research and familiarize yourself with these things. Thank God for Google.

2.] Learn Object Oriented Programming and Java


Hopefully, you should have learned some of the basics as stated in the very first step. Now it’s time to dig that little bit deeper and find out how today programs have been written with speed and efficiency in mind. You should or preferably must learn Java programming because that is the core of the Android language.

Java is widely used so you won’t find it difficult to get a handle on it and, once you have learnt some of it, move on to object oriented programming. When you understand how both of these work, you are ready to start narrowing it down to the world of Android.

3.] The Android SDK and the Developers Website


So, you have learnt a bit about how computers and programs works plus you also know something about Java and object oriented programming. Then you are now set/ prepared to get into the finer points of developing an app for Android.

One of the best things about Android development is that just about everything you need is packaged up neatly into one SDK or Software Development Kit. Like other platforms, Android also comes with an optimized IDE – (Integrated Development Environment). So, all you need to do is familiarize yourself with the methods and the tools that Android supplies you.

The most important thing, I mean; something that is very effective is learning what you can about Android’s architecture. Each platform is different in the way it does things so you should get yourself up to scratch with the basics – it will help your efficiency and code writing in the future as well.

And Finally, You know the regular saying “Practice makes perfect” or you are used to this one “A day off practicing a skill or subject = 1 week of lost memory about that subject / skill

4.] Practice Makes Perfect


Nothing will improve your skills as much as doing as many projects as you possibly can. It actually doesn’t hurt to just set as many new projects as possible and test different things/ steps with each. It’s yours; no one is going to yell at you for failing while practicing.

Any time you want to learn something, set up a project and start looking at it in parts. That way you will learn more and you can apply to the project directly from the learning materials that are supplied for you. Not only will this give you a learning edge, it will also save you time. (Though I doubt that, as time wastage on a particular course is a good thing during practice/ learning stage.)

Got anything more to add? Or perhaps you disagree with any of the points listed above? No need to burn out; let’s address it via the comment box below.

And YES, how about sharing this with your friends, family or loved ones interested in becoming an android app developer on social media? You can simply do that by using any of the social share buttons above or below right here on this page. SHARING IS CARING.

how to Run iOS Apps on Android devices
Image Credit: TheappforPC
  • Cider is a new program that enables users to run IOS apps on any Android device – and have access to all their Apple content


No doubt, a day where Android users can have full access to Apple’s App Store is just around the corner and may be with us sooner rather than later.

Six students at Columbia University have developed Cider, a piece of software that enables users to access a wide library of IOS apps across their Android devices. As well as bridging the gap between both operating systems, Cider has also been created for users to have a single device for their app content, instead of needing multiple devices.

The project isn’t currently without its limitations however, with members of the research team pointing out that Apple apps tend to run slightly slower on Android devices and there are performance issues with Bluetooth  and GPS systems not working properly.

The research team has said that Cider is currently just a prototype, and as of yet, there are  no plans to turn it into a widely available product that everyday users will have access to whenever they might need it.

samsung galaxy note7 explode
Image credit: PocketNow
  • Samsung galaxy S and note 7 respectively has since generated a strong buzz on the world wide web with its outrageous mode of exploding and causing burns+ afflicting pains on people. 

  • Samsung has been sued for numerous cases of afflicting 2nd and 3rd degree injury on people. 

  • Samsung recalls all of its galaxy s7 devices worldwide as Airlines are equally banning the use of Samsung galaxy note 7 devices worldwide.


You will recall that there was a buzz on the internet from around the globe some months ago, when Samsung first rumored its Monster device. (The Samsung galaxy S7) which finally launched not quiet long after the release of its galaxy s6 device, with amazing specs. --source: Samsung official-- 

One would wonder if they were pursuing them with a Cain to produce new devices with the rate at which they were busy manufacturing and producing new devices and pushing them to the telecom market. Ranging from the J series which saw a break-through in India, down to the S series which is supposedly to also see same in the US. Yea, it did see a boom in the US mobile market as well. --Techgig--

After much hype, excitement, trends + ado, the Samsung galaxy s7 (first out march 11) finally launched in may 2016 and recorded a really amazing sale of over 100,000+ units within two days after it official launch in south Korea.(part of the new technology and new gadgets of the year)

"Sales of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge reached a combined 60,000 on Friday and 40,000 on Saturday after the smart phones hit South Korean market on Friday. The Galaxy S7 Edge accounted for some 40 percent of the two-day sales, --Ndtv--

According to latest mobile market data numbers by Kantar , World-panel;
Samsung's flagship models; Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge accounted for 16 percent of all smartphone sales in the US, while iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus accounted for 14.6 percent of sales in three months ended May.

Even though Apple's flagships were launched in September last year and those of Samsung in March this year, this can be considered a worrying sign for the Cupertino-based company as it showed a trend of maintaining lead in market sales despite the launch gap till this very year.

Just when everyone was happy about the new device and their newly acquired wireless machine, **Face meets palm** Little did begin to realize that their wonderfully and powerfully made mobile device in a very fanciful and premium package was nothing but a mobile time bomb. Just waiting to explode, as there has lately been a rise of cases where the Samsung galaxy S7 Exploded causing burns and inflicting pains on the life of individuals and families. --google trends--



In a warning message issued few days ago by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, it  warned owners and users of Samsung Galaxy7 devices to “power them down and stop charging or using” the devices.

You will recall that Samsung has already issued a recall of sorts, “advising” customers to take their Galaxy7 devices to a store and exchange them for a temporary phone, and eventually a non-exploding device.

You will also recall that Some airlines have already banned and many is still banning + ready to ban passengers from using or charging their Note 7s while in flight. No one knows yet, but this  may probably lead to a complete ban of the Samsung galaxy7 devices across major or all airline globally.

Not withstanding, you will agree with me that outside the whole bombing, burning and blowing off, of the Samsung galaxy7 series (S7 and Note7 respectively), its specs still remains one to beat by other mobile manufacturers out there in the competitive mobile market.

MTN 4G Lte
Image Credit: Youtube

You will recall that there has been some buzz in the Nigerian tech world (blogs and magazines included) recently concerning the first; Breakout news of MTNs 4GLTE which was supposed to be the crusher of Ntel 4G, then the beta testing stage of the proposed 4GLTE and later on the release/unveiling of the 4GLTE data plans.. --Source--Google MTN4G Trends--


You will recall sometime ago, MTN was first rumored to acquire the one and only CDMA device in Nigeria and maybe Africa "Visafone". Of which it later openly acquired the network January 8 2016 in an undisclosed amount behind a closed curtain which brought mixed reactions from other telecom operators in the country. -- Premium Times--

With regards to this change of ownership of the then only CDMA network in the country, MTN NG encouraged subscribers and users of the Visafone network to Migrate over to the MTN network and compesated each migrants with the sum of N5,000 in value of airtime. [I was a beneficiary of this offer]

Upon Acquisition of the Visafone Network, MTN NG promised all data plans and bundles + tarrifs  would remain the same, as you can see on their official page here, which obviously turned out to be a FAT LIE as they completely destroyed the Unlimited Internet access first granted to the Visafone Blackberry Users. Which was the star attraction of the network.  (Tarrif plans still remains the same though). 

Upon this trait of betrayal, the telecommunication giant rolled out a data plan which was tagged "VSF" a short accronym for the word "Visafone" and encouraged all Visafone migrants to start using this plan specifically made for them.

Conspiracy Of The MTN 4GLTE and VSF Bundles.


Not quiet long, MTN NG rolled out its 4GLTE plan, which has made subscribers ponder whether subscribing to these plans will super charge their internet speed. No wonder there has been some debate online as to whether the MTN 4GLTE is an alien network that can't be accessed by 3G UMTS network.

Below are some key facts you didn't know about MTN 4GLTE.

  • MTN 4GLTE data plans is the same as the then released MTN VSF (mtn visafone) data bundles and can both be accessed by dialing *444#


  • An average 3G network in an area with proper network coverage is as fast as [if not faster than] the proposed 4GLTE in many major locations/cities. The reason for this is simple, Nigeria is still welcoming the 4G network.


  • An average  sim card in a Nokia 3310 phone can access and buy any of the data plans available by dialing *444#.


  • When you dial the *444# to subscribe to the 4G LTE plan, the "VSF" you see there means "Visafone" which was introduced immediately after the acquisition of the visafone network.

  • MTN VSF users can no longer subscribe to the normal mtn blackberry bundles using "21600" as they have been restricted to use the *444# option solely meant for them. 4G or no 4G device.


(I personally encoutered this, when I got a reply from MTN denying me access, upon trying to subscribe to the BIS plan with my migrated visafone sim which I have been doing since without any hassle )

In a swift reaction to the MTN 4GLTE, while some users lament saying the data plans are just too expensive others claim it is a way for MTN to make public again their Failed VSF data plan which obviously didn't get attraction from Visafone users who migrated to the MTN Network.


Let's hear your take on this.

You will recall that in April 2014, the father of social media "Facebook" reportedly acquired the social media bride and companion "Whatsapp" for a disclosed amount of $16Billion (16 billion US dollars). --- CNN Money--

After the purchase, everyone wondered what benefit this would add to Facebook since whatsapp was a free to use social chat app.. Time continue to roll pass and there began to unfold few little noticeable changes in whatsapp..


Not until recently, when the global messaging service WhatsApp provoked the world  by announcing that it is to start sharing its user data with its parent company Facebook. Which according to the company

"the new change is meant only to help improve the relevant ads on Facebook and WhatsApp, as well as helping to improve the messaging platform.

This obviously didn't go down well with so many users of both services as it was no doubt a breach in privacy and a threat to national security --ComputerWeekly--

Many of the social media platforms users (especially the tech bloggers)  including this one from ExpressUK , have been sharing and creating awareness to the general public, telling them how they can opt-out of this WhatsApp’s new changes, to prevent the messaging service from sending their phone numbers to Facebook.

However, it has now emerged that though you might have chosen not to share your account information under this WhatsApp’s latest policy change, you are not in any way guaranteed that the messaging platform will not share your phone number with Facebook.

In a recent interview with a Facebook spokesperson by the by Hindustantimes (an Asian based newspaper)   it was confirmed that even if you opt out, you are still not 100% safe.

“If you choose to opt out, this means Facebook won’t be able to suggest friends or improve the ads you see based on your WhatsApp number,” --spokesperson.

When asked, however, if phone numbers will still be shared, the spokesperson said: “…the phone number is being shared with Facebook, but it will not be in the public domain. Also some basic device information is being shared: mobile carrier code, identifier, mobile country code.”

However, the quick messaging platform made sure to re-assure its users that their privacy is still of great concern to them.

“WhatsApp has become even more private and secure since joining Facebook, as we launched end-to-end encryption, which ensures messages can only be read by people in the conversation. WhatsApp can’t read them and neither can Facebook.”. While also promising that there will be no form of third party banner ads on global chat messenger whatsapp..
