How to Choose a Hybrid App Development Company?

The following factors need to be considered before selecting a company to be in charge of building your Hybrid Applications-

Location: If you prefer to deal with a company that is located far away from your workplace, hiring one that is located far away from your office can suffice. However, if you want to be among the developers and learn about the hybrid app development process, hiring a business that is closer to your office might be beneficial.
Level of Involvement: You must determine the company’s level of involvement in its job. You’ll be entrusting the development of your hybrid application to a company, therefore it’s critical to understand who you’re entrusting such a large task to and assess their willingness to deliver actual results.
Cost: Not every Hybrid App Development Company in the world charges the same price. Before choosing on a price, I recommend that you inquire about other companies. Determine how much money you’re willing to spend and stick to it.
After-launch services: Once the Hybrid Application is completed and delivered to you, you must be able to use it without experiencing any mistakes or catastrophes. However, if the app encounters a difficulty, the service provider firm should be held accountable and should assist in resolving the issue. Because these apps must be maintained on a constant basis and updated on a regular basis, you should confirm whether or not the company will provide you with post-launch services before making a decision.
Expertise: Last but not least, the Hybrid App Development Company’s app developers must have obtained industry qualifications as well as a sufficient amount of on-the-job experience. This is the only way you can be confident you’re entrusting something so significant to capable hands.

Zugme and Microsoft Great Minds Think Alike?

About a month ago, in April 2013, a new video was posted on YouTube talking about a new social media network called Zugme. A network that brings together people of all color, age and gender while allowing members to see only content that they wish to see and decide what and who to share it with. The tagline of this new social media is “All people. One media” and it seems to describe it really well.

My take on Zugme is that it is a well thought and executed platform. As a frequent user of social media, I really liked the blogging opportunities it offers. Zugme pushed the limits from regular blogging you are used to find on Google+, Tumblr and so on. What Zugme did differently is implementing a two-dimensional concept where content is tied to a topic and/or a geographical place (a city). The entire public content is somehow linked allowing bloggers to be part of the traffic. Speaking of blogging, I was super excited to see the audio blogging, which in my opinion will change how social media works. Thank you Zugme. I wonder if Facebook and Google+ will wake up and ‘borrow’ that concept from Zugme.

Another feature I really like is thatyou can set your language preferences so I don’t get bothered with the content written in languages I do not understand. On the other hand, those of us who speak multiple languages, like me, can enjoy seeing the posts in its original language. Thank you for that too.

Enough of me telling you what Zugme is. Do some research on your own. I wanted to tell you about this video and idea behind it.

Zugme introductory video starts with the words “Imagine a social media when you, I, and other people share information about almost anything but see what matters to each of us…” The 30 seconds spot ends with the words “Stop imagining. Experience it now. See you at Zugme.com”

Not more than a month later, Microsoft, the huge behemoth, came out with a new video of their own which was posted on YouTube as well to advertise their new tablet called Surface. Now, it is a completely different (cool) product, which is meant to do other things, but surprisingly it starts with the words: ”Imagine you only had to carry one device. A device with the speeding capability of a laptop but the size and touch of a tablet…”
And how does it end?
“Now stop imagining. Click in to Microsoft Surface. One device that lets you do so much more.”
Really? The same concept? Almost the same wording? Hey, Zugme! You are in good company when Microsoft thinks the same way you do.

I wonder what the account executives in the world of “Mad Men” would have to say in a situation like that? Would they say that “Imitation is the greatest form of flattery”? Or would they say that “Great minds thing alike”?

The Intriguing World Of Rubber Wires And Cables

We take quite a few things for granted; and rubber wires and cables feature at the top of that list, when we speak in relation to the electrical cables industry. Their importance is felt only when they are missing. Rubber cables are used extensively in day to day applications. We would find it very difficult to operate machines without them. Rubber cables are used on a large scale in making kitchen appliances, television sets, in wall wiring, etc. They are also used for outdoor applications.

Due to its salient features, rubber cables can be used in various environments. They are suitable to cater to a wide variety of applications. The most impressive feature of rubber is that, it is resistant to natural materials and chemicals. Wires and cables made out of rubber can resist various types of acids, chemicals, oils and other elements. When an electrical cable is equipped with rubber, it can withstand the test of time very easily. Rubber cables are extremely flexible. They can be used to connect machines and equipments stored in adverse conditions. They are very durable as well. The fact that a faulty part of the wire can be replaced easily, adds to the durability of the entire cable. It is extremely lucrative from the maintenance point of view, as rubber cables can be cleaned, stored and replaced without any hassles.

According to cable manufacturers in India, the most startling feature of rubber is its ability to be used as an insulator. That is the reason why it is used for electrical house wiring. Rubber cables are ideally suited for the food industry, as well. Rubber cables are manufactured using non-toxic materials. The food industry needs to adhere to strict guidelines as they are dealing with consumable items. Thanks to its non-toxic nature and being resistant to chemicals, rubber is used on a large scale in the food industry. Food processing units are susceptible to the growth of microbial organisms, if the relevant hygiene standards are not maintained. As rubber cables are easy to clean, they score over other cables in the hygiene area as well. Rubber cables are resistant to animal fat and vegetable oil. It is very economical to install these types of cables. Steam and hot water is used on a regular basis in food processing units and rubber cables do not get affected by them. Thus, due to these above mentioned features, rubber wires and cables are the best choice for food processing units.
