Xiaomi Mi 9 SE is another great phone in the budget category. The worldwide release of the Pixel 3a proved really good for the smartphone industry, as its low price and great camera with exceptional visual experience proved that the mid-range market has lots of potential to grow. Everyday smartphones seem to go bigger but not everyone is fan of huge display. The Xiaomi Mi 9 SE comes with a smaller display. There are already so many mid-range phones. The Pixel 3a is definitely one of the best, and the Mi 9 SE has made to the second position. The Nokia 7.1 is proved to be one of the best low budget smartphone.
The device comes with the glass sandwich design alone feels as good as the OnePlus 7. It is available in black color which comes with the problem of consistent need of wiping fingerprints. It is powered by the Qualcomm snapdragon 712 processor, 6GB RAM, and has 64GB or 128GB storage. That said, there is no headphone port or expandable storage. The battery is kind of small but enough for this device - 3070mAh.
The display is super AMOLED with FHD+ panel, comes with 19.5:9 aspect ratio, 1080 x 2340 pixel resolution. It is running Android Pie out of the box and runs heave MIUI 10. The Xiamoi Mi 9 SE has triple camera setup consists of a 48-MP main sensor, 8MP 2x telephoto zoom lens, and a 13MP ultra-wide angle lens. The image quality is good. The 48MP sensor uses pixel-binning to produce sharp, colorful, and vibrant images. At the front camera it uses 20MP selfie camera. It lacks the overall quality. There is also a beauty mode for taking selfies with a number of tweak and options. The Mi 9 SE comes with an 18W USB-C fast charger. It will take you from zero to 100% in under an hour and 30 minutes.Much like the Pixel 3a, there is no wireless charging included. It's a shame given that the Mi 9 SE has a glass back, but it's not too much of a big deal given that fast-charging is included.
Human Resources (HR) management software can perform many different HR functions, including but not limited to storing employee data, managing payroll, recruitment, benefits administration, time and attendance, employee performance management and tracking competency and training records. Essentially, this software streamlines the entire HR process into one easy-to-manage digital dashboard.
Small businesses are arguably the backbone of the economy. However, many small business owners may find themselves spending the first several months (or even years!) of operation working out the kinks in everyday processes. Specifically, while the HR department is a vital component of many companies, some small businesses may not have the funds to hire enough employees to complete essential HR tasks. Owners then get bogged down in legal paperwork for their employees, when they should be free to innovate, market and grow their business. Fortunately, HR management software can reduce the amount of labor required for HR tasks, or at least allow employees to complete these tasks more efficiently.
How Does HR Management Software Help Small Businesses?
Simply put, HR management software for small businesses saves time and money. This software can perform a multitude of tasks that would normally take a department of several people to manage efficiently.
For example, many HR management software programs offer automated payroll, populating and maintaining personnel records, and company benefits management, which are vital functions to any company large or small. These processes can be handled in just a few quick clicks. Not to mention, employees can fill out their paperwork and submit it digitally to a system that organizes and updates when needed. Easy interaction with pretty much a "set it and forget it" ability. Business owners can also run this program in little to no time once a day or even a week and then focus on other responsibilities.
Additionally, this software provides talent management services for identifying potential applicants, mass-producing job listings on several digital platforms, analyzing applicants' capabilities and providing data analysis on the hiring process to improve it for the future. These convenient features take the headache out of finding the right candidates for any small business.
Finally, HR management software places all HR information - whether it is for record and legal documents or important employee information - in one place so that it can be accessed on any device anywhere. That way, employees can locate essential documents whenever they need to. Employers can also share important information without having to bombard all employees with emails, and employees can access that information without first having to navigate several complicated channels. Likewise, employees can track any claims they have, providing transparency and confidence in the HR process.
Don't Miss Out on the Benefits of HR Management Software for Small Businesses
As a small business owner, minimizing your HR department's everyday workload is invaluable. This type of software can do just that. Finding the right software can be overwhelming; however, if you research thoroughly, you are sure to find a program that perfectly matches your business needs.
HTC just posted its financial results for the Q3 of the year and the company is reporting a slight decline in sales. Despite the bad news, however, the phonemaker remains profitable as cuts in costs have offset the slowing in sales.
The company's quarterly revenue is $1,38 billion of which profits were $21,1 million. In comparison, the previous quarter was kinder to HTC with a revenue of $2,15 billion and profit of $75,5 million.
HTC saw the largest drop in sales in July by some 33% compared to the same period last year. However, in August the company saw 10% sales jump compared to the same month of 2013. Analysts blame the launch of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus for HTC's 7.9% fall in sales in September.
Speculations regarding the Samsung Galaxy S7 has been piling up lately, although the mobile enthusiasts are not expecting to have a look at the smartphone in CES next week in Las Vegas. But it is expected that the S7 would be unveiled on February 21st during the Samsung Unpacked 2016 event in Barcelona. Incidentally this day is just before the kick off of the Mobile World Congress expo. Now it seems that the front panel for the Samsung Galaxy S7 has leaked online.
Looking at the leaked panel, the home button appears to be longer. This is in sync with the leaked images of the Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Plus that depicted a rectangular home button. In addition to this, the panel shows that the sensors, power button and volume rockers will make the right side of the device more attractive. Right now it can't be confirmed that the panel is actually for the Galaxy S7, so take this with a pinch of salt, especially since sensors placed at the top doesn't match with the other previously leaked images.
The Galaxy S7 is supposed to boast a 5.2-inch screen with a 1440 x 2560 QHD display. Backed by 4GB of RAM, the device will also have 32GB/64GB of storage. A 20MP snapper will be made available at the back of the smartphone. It will be powered by the Exynos 8890 SoC in most of the countries except in the US and China. In those two countries, the Snapdragon 820 chipset will be used to power the S7 along with quad-core CPU and the Adreno 530 GPU.
When the US state of Ohio announced in late 2018, that it is going to be the first state to accept taxes in Bitcoins, it sent a strong signal worldwide. The Governor of Ohio stated that the state will not start accepting 23 different kinds of taxes in Bitcoins.
The intention was to allow more people to pay taxes in ways, which were convenient for them. This was also done as a means to attract investors and businesses operating in the cryptocurrency ecosystem. The State Treasury Head, Mr. Josh Mandel was proud in proclaiming Ohio to be a state, which is pioneering Blockchain technology. Bitcoin has been very favourable in various countries in recent days.
Ohio is not the only state that has adopted a favourable response to Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. In this article, we will look at how states and cities are using Bitcoin to power growth stories for their population.
Why Small States and Cities are taking the lead in Cryptocurrency adoption?
Most of the old states in the American Union have been severely affected because of outsourcing. There are towns, cities and states, which have lost factories, mining, heavy manufacturing because they have been outsourced to third world countries.
The government in these regions are betting big on investors coming to these regions to innovate on Bitcoin and Blockchain technology. States are wooing investors in many ways. Some of them are-
Easy access to land at a convenient spot in the city.
Cheap electricity for Mining activities and maintaining Data Records of Blockchain
Exempting cryptocurrencies for paying transaction fees.
Easy business licenses to speed up setups and start innovations.
Tax exemptions on operating cryptocurrency businesses for the first few years.
Some of the states, which have already removed transaction fees on cryptocurrencies are- Wyoming, Tennessee, Kansas, Texas, New Hampshire, and Illinois. Without a doubt, this number will definitely go up in the future.
Can these Small States hope to the center for the Next Silicon Valley Revolution?
Most of the states, which have been mentioned above are expecting Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies to be the next Silicon Valley wave. However, its needs to be investigated whether their expectations are correct or not?
Many experts and tech moguls have proclaimed Bitcoin to be the greatest tech invention in the world after the internet. The philosophical and theoretical underpinnings of Bitcoin are strong. It aims to create a world of financial inclusion. The success of the same for over a decade demonstrates that it is not a trend, which is going away anytime soon.
By being one of the front-runners in the entire Bitcoin ecosystem, states are expecting businesses borne out of Bitcoin to favour them. Yes, Bitcoin or mining itself is not going to generate too many employment opportunities.
It is only associated businesses, that are using Bitcoin or Blockchain technology, which are going to the real drivers of local economies.
Is Bitcoin a Reliable and Safe Bet for local populations and authorities?
If the recent Coronavirus pandemic and market crashes are any indication, most governments should start exploring an emergency proof currency system. There are many advantages of using cryptocurrencies. It is inflation proof, is not subject to the highs, lows of market crashes, and aims to help the lowest rungs on the financial ladder.
Financial inclusion can be a reality for almost 2 billion of the world's unbanked population. It is no wonder then that Mark Zuckerberg, the Founder and CEO of Facebook, has jumped on the cryptocurrency bandwagon, with his own ‘Libra'.
Do you think Bitcoin and Blockchain can guarantee employment opportunities? Let us know in the comments section below.
There's no getting around it; the iPhone 7 has scored 178,397 points in the AnTuTu Benchmark test and that's significantly more than the 140,288 points which the current topper, the OnePlus 3 scores on an average. There is no doubt that this score is extremely impressive and beats all the Android competition hands down. The Apple A10 chip is indeed a beast as it turns out. However, there is a small detail that most people seem to be overlooking in this particular case.
The iPhone 7 will probably have a screen resolution of 750 × 1334 pixels, stretched out on a 4.7-inch display with a ppi of 326. This means that the A10 chip had to push a lot less pixels while going through the AnTuTu benchmark than ANY of the other Android phones on the top ten list. The minimum resolution that is considered standard for a flagship device these days is 1080 × 1920 pixels, with some major manufacturers like Samsung opting for 1440p QHD AMOLED panels since last year. While it is a completely different issue that a flagship smartphone with a very premium price tag sports only a 750 × 1334 resolution, things will make a bit more sense when we see the iPhone 7 Plus' (1080p expected) score on AnTuTu when it comes out, or maybe even sooner.
