Samsung Galaxy S - the iPhone Killer?

With the launch of iPhone 4, Apple has created a new ripple in the mobile phone industry. The boxy look notwithstanding, this is one heck of a killer phone. Retina display, 5-mega pixel still camera, LED flash makes this phone worth the hype. But the question is at Rs. 42000 how many of us are really going to buy this phone here in India?

Not me, definitely!

So what are my options? Recently Samsung launched two new slick smart phones: Samsung Galaxy S and Samsung Wave. Samsung Galaxy S comes with Android 2.1, the cool and very happening mobile OS from Google. With a 4 inch AMOLED display, this phone is the thinnest and slimmest from Samsung. The display is spacious and crystal clear with a generous space for content. Net weight of the phone is 118gm and dimensions are 64.2 * 122.4 * 9.9mm.

That’s not all. The Samsung Galaxy S has a 1GHz processor, 5.0 megapixel camera, A-GPS Bluetooth 3.0 and Wi-Fi, HD video player & recorder and it comes loaded with a digital compass to boot. You can also download various free apps from Samsung Apps .

This phone is designed just right for social networking with one click access to Facebook and Twitter. Samsung has also integrated utility services, such as weather, news, and Google mobile services like Search, Gmail and Google Maps into the handset, which can be accessed with one click. Also, the built in Swype technology enables user to enter text quickly and easily, even on the go.

This gizmo is so good looking; you can use it as a display, an alarm or a navigation system when driving.

The price for the Galaxy S handset in India is Rs. 31500.

Resolving PDF Problems!

You need to send that PDF file by close of business to your product manager/SME and the file won't just print. What do you do?

Listed here is a set of common PDF issues and solutions:

Pain: When you right-click a Microsoft Office file to convert to Adobe PDF, the application returns the message, "Missing PDFMaker files," and does not create an Adobe PDF file.

Solution: Remove Adobe PDF from the Disabled Items list in the Microsoft Office application.
To manage your Disabled Items list in a Microsoft Office application:
1. Open the Microsoft Office application (Word, Excel, Publisher).
2. Choose Help > About [the application name].
3. Click Disabled Items.
4. Select Adobe PDF from the list, and clickEnable.
5. Quit the Microsoft Office application, and then restart it.

If the error message continues to appear after you enable Adobe PDF, then check the security level for macros in Word:
1. Choose Tools > Macro > Security.
2. In the Security dialog, click the Security tab.
3. Choose Medium or High.
4. Do one of the following:
-- If you chose Medium, then click OK.
-- If you chose High, then continue with steps 5 through 7.
5. Click the Trusted Publishers tab.
6. Check Trust all installed add-ins and templates.

PDFMaker and the right-click context menu should function again.

Pain: Images look fine in MS Word, but after converting to PDF, image quality is poor.

Solution: Save your image in JPG or TIFF format and embed the image into your Word document to publish using Adobe PDF printer. PNGs are not suitable for word to PDF conversion, TIFFS work much better. Use high quality print setting while converting to PDF. Also, standardize the resolution settings of your desktop (1024*768) and the DPI setting in your screen capture software.
