There is a great service out there if you want to compare various websites. If you ever wanted to know deep stats about a website. Like Global Rank, Country Rank and Category Rank for a website. The website is called SimilarWeb. In the free version you don’t get all statistics but you do get decent stats for free. Like the amount of visitors per month and page views per visitor. Also stats like average visit duration.
You can also see what countries the traffic is coming from, Traffic sources that can either be social, search, direct (typed in the address in URL bar), referrals and mail! I also like how you can see the top referring websites and also where the visitors go after they entered a website.
One of the better parts here is how you can find similar websites as well as competitors! It’s both good when you want to find similar websites for new inspiration, or for new business ideas. Of course you don’t get all stats for free. They actually do sell a PRO version of their service. But I think the free service offers you a lot of useful info. For example how you can see what pages on a website that get’s the most views! See if a website is using Display Advertising to get new visitors. Or if it’s mostly organic.
Another good service I use when I want to find stats about a website is a website called TrafficEstimate. It also tells you average page views per month. But a bad thing is with the most popular website it gives you bad stats. But it’s good to use both services to compare stats!
It’s really interesting to see how much data tracking that is being done these days. From all companies. All the data about every single person is very interesting how you can build up a whole person’s life from it! We humans are creatures of habit. We usually stick to the same routine. Especially when we analyse ourself more up close. Many times we can see certain habits we have been walking around in circles for years!
You can now buy Nokia’s brand new high-end smartphone from Europe. This was a phone that just got announced last month in August. It’s the most high end Nokia phone for this year so far. Nokia 8 is available here at Amazon Germany!
Some of the specs include 5.3″ IPS LCD 1440×2560 display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection, it’s also has an Always-on display. Same feature that we seen on Samsung devices. The body is dust and splash resistant with IP54 certification. It weights 160g. The operating system is not Android 8.0 Oreo but earlier Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
The chipset in Nokia 8 is qualcomm MSM8998 Snapdragon 835, an Octa-core CPU with 4×2.5 GHz Kryo and 4×1.8GHz Kryo. The GPU is Adreno 540. This is standard specs for a high end phone 2017. The internal storage is 64GB + 4GB of RAM. It also has a microSD card slot available up to 256GB support.
The rear camera is Dual 13 MP f/2.0. It can record 2160p video at 30fps. The front facing camera is also 13MP f/2.0. It also features latest Bluetooth 5.0 and USB Type-C 1.0. The battery is 3,090mAh. Which is almost as much mAh as Galaxy Note 8 has.
My favourite thing with this new HMD Global Nokia phone is the low price! It’s way better pricing than what both the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and iPhone 8 will cost.
It will be the perfect choice for someone who wants a high end premium phone with good brand but not pay a fortune. Good job HMD. The 4 colours it’s available in are tempered blue, polished blue, steel and polished copper. Which is your favourite?
I think I will try to get this device when I can. I bought the Nokia 3 and really enjoyed the premium quality that low cost device had. So I expect this Nokia 8 will feel even better! There are also some other new Nokia phones you might wanna check out.
2017 is the year the Nokia brand comes back big! And finally it’s using the right OS, Android and not Windows Phone! Here is the link to Nokia 8 in Australia!
This is a cool dashcam camera called G1W-CB that you can mount inside of your car! It has a 2.7 inch display, 4X digital zoom, 120 degree wide angle lens and a charger.
If you ever have a traffic accident then this is a good investment to be able to record everything that happens on the road in front of you! It’s using a Novatek 96650 chipset, 12.0MP image resolution, you can choose between 30 or 60 frames per second, also has support for SD card extension up to 32GB.
We are moving into a digital age now where it’s good to have video proof if something happens. It’s going to be interesting to see where this will take us in the future. Especially when the cameras will become so small that you can barely see them. I recently did a blog post about SanDisk latest crazy 400GB microSD card. You really see how amazing tech is becoming. When you can store that much data in so little space.
What will be the future of privacy in future when everything will be tracked. It looks like in the future that everyone will know everything about everyone. It’s almost like we all will merge into one human being. It may sound strange but the digital age is weird! Especially with future AI that will become a major player after 2030.
I’m currently reading a great book about AI that was recommended by Elon Musk on Twitter. It’s called Life 3.0. It’s talked both about the positive things that may happen with AI. But also about the dark side. How it can replace us humans.
What will we then do? What will happen with money? We see digital currency like bitcoin popup. And it all makes you wonder how the world in the future will look like! Have you read the book Life 3.0? I highly recommend it it’s very well written.
This notebook here from Jumper has a look that looks very identical to my €1,500 MacBook Pro! The EZBOOK 3 PRO comes with some interesting specs.
First it’s having a 13.3 inch display with 1080p resolution, Windows 10 Home, Intel Apollo Lake N3450 Quad-Core 1.1GHz processor, 6GB DDR3 RAM, 64GB eMMC storage, it has an option to expand memory with a 128GB TF card, 2.0MP front facing camera and Dual Band 2.4GHz / 5.0GHz WiFi, Intel Graphics 500, 9600mAh polymer battery.
The build material on EZBOOK 3 Pro is a new material, a new type aluminium with wholy pressing, it’s about 1.4KG heavy notebook and built with a stylish design in mind. The bezels are 10.55mm. This probably won’t be the best computer if you are looking to play a lot of games. But for standard web browsing and some social media and light work it might be a good option.
I am really impressed with how beautiful the keyboard is. It looks just as my MacBook Pro keyboard. Black with white key colour. The notebook has two USB 3.0 ports, one earphone jack, one TF card slot, one DC jack for charging and one mini HDMI slot. Of course it also comes with a centered touchpad.
Compared to a MacBook Pro probably one of the biggest differences will be the display quality and resolution. That will be way better on the MacBook. But if you don’t need that fancy stuff and likes Windows but with a Mac design then this might be a good choice. I might check it out in the future! I am curious how that material will feel.
I am especially curious how good the graphic card and processor will handle steam game on this device. Can it handle heavy graphic games or just old games like Counter-Strike 1.6? What do you think about this notebook?
Have you ever wanted to have a super cool computer that can match Apple’s design? There is now a cool computer out from Xiaomi. With a MacBook laptop look but for a cheaper price! It’s called the Xiaomi Air 12.
It’s having a 12.5 inch IPS screen with 1080p resolution, processor is Intel Core m3-6Y30 Dual-Core, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, 128 GB SSD for fast speed, AKG speaker, Front facing camera, Bluetooth 4.1 and HDMI! It’s running on Microsoft Windows 10 Home OS. It also comes with a USB Type-C port which is ten times faster than USB 2.0!
The battery in Xiaomi Air 12 is 7.4V/5000mAh 37Wh that supports fast charging! The front facing camera is a bit low in resolution only 1.0MP available. It also is a pretty light full metal body laptop. Weight is 1.07kg. And it’s only 12.9mm thin. And the display has Edge-to-edge protective glass. On the side it also has a 3.5mm headphone jack!
Something that has been annoying me with the current laptops is many feels very much plasticky. Not the premium feel that Apple has been able to give. But it now seems like there is a strong competitor out on the market that will challenge Apple’s MacBook Pro and MacBook Air computers!
I am currently using a slim Macbook Pro and an Acer Predator laptop as my two main computers. And something that annoys me with the laptop is how it’s three times as large and heavy. It’s good that Apple is getting some serious competition on the market. With this laptop costing around half the price of what the OLED iPhone 8 will cost!
I am curious to see how it will perform in heavy tasks as rendering videos. If the intel core processor can challenge the more pricy MacBook Air. Of course Apple has more optimised software because they both design their hardware and software to work together. Do you like the design of this computer? Would you like more ports? Let me know in the comment section!
