Truecaller acts on a give and take scenario... You want those unknown numbers then you have to part with your phone contacts. Now apparently everyone who have installed the app has surrendered his phone book. The data is crowded from the millions of users who have downloaded the truecaller app on their smart phones. As part of the end user, the truecaller app asks the user to allow access to the user's contacts on the smart phone. This data is then uploaded by the app to the company servers. After going through several data matching/refining algorithms, this data is then available to the truecaller users to search upon.

The story must start from the login screen first. If you have already been using Truecaller, you might have seen that Truecaller only allows either Facebook, Gmail or Yahoo to access Truecaller app. If you don't have one you cannot connect to Truecaller database. This is because, FB, Gmail and Yahoo! are the most widely used social networking sites that contain a lot of phone numbers and contact details. It implies that when you use one of any social sites, your entire contacts including phone email ids, contact names, numbers will be uploaded to a secure Truecaller server. In case you login to the app using your mobile phones then the entire address book will be sent to the Truecaller servers.

Colour Phychology


The psychology of colour is based on the mental and the emotional effects colours have on sighted people in all the facets of life. There are some very subjective pieces to psychology of colour as well as some more accepted and proven elements. There will also be variations in interpretation, meaning, and also the perception between different cultures.

Colours have deep subliminal meanings that affect our thinking and rational. They have symbolic meaning that changes amongst different cultures and different countries.  We always face with colour choices all the time. The first crucial decision of the day usually comes in the morning when deciding what we should wear. Often times we will choose our clothes based on the colour of the mood we are feeling or wish to portray that particular day. Even more important than choice of wardrobe is the colour selection for your brand or your website. Colour research and planning is a vital part of the designing process. Before you begin a design you must choose the appropriate colours that are effective in enforcing the brand, message and overall tone.
Colours are a part of our pop-culture and tradition. We associate our favourite sports team by their team colours. Red Sox, White Sox, Cleveland Browns, Duke Blue Devils are among a few teams to incorporate a colour into their names. Colours have become a part of our day to day vocabulary; "Canary Yellow" "Carolina Blue" "John Deere Green" "Fire Engine Red."
There are the three primary colours of Red, Blue and Yellow. Then there are secondary colours also of Green, Orange and Purple. Additionally, there are Tertiary colours that are combinations of the first two of the sets. Complimentary colours are opposite each other on the colour wheel and often evoke the feelings of excitement. Analogous colours are those that are close to each other on the colour of wheel. These give a particular feeling whether it be warm and cosy or cold and depressing.
There are many different technical aspects when it comes to working with colours. In the print world Pantone and CMYK are the colour formats, while online RGB and Hexadecimal is the medium. Because of this it is important that both the web and graphic designers work closely on the colour process to make sure their colours transfer smoothly from one medium to another. A colour may look one way on a particular screen but when the printed out it looks totally different. It is important to come up with a colour palate listing all of the different colour codes that will ensure a unified colour scheme throughout print and web.

The Rise and Fall of Adobe Flash


Flash as a tool is a very useful tool to create interactive and dynamic web content. Flash content is easy to load and give “interactivity” option to users. There are two versions of flash available in the market; Shockwave and Flash. People get confused between the two siblings as both of them come under the Adobe umbrella. But in fact, Shockwave was published by Macromedia in 1995, which was then acquired by Adobe in 2005. Both these plug-ins are popular among the masses but Flash takes the cherry due to its dependence on vector graphics, which makes them internet friendly. The advantage of this set-up makes Flash plug-in pip the popularity charts over Shockwave.

Shockwave is also used to build interactive multimedia applications and video games. Shockwave supports raster graphics, basic vector graphics, 3D graphics, audio, and an embedded scripting language called Lingo. Shockwave came into light when tonnes of free online video games were developed and published on sites such as Miniclip and Adobe developed Adobe AIR as a supplementary plug-in to combat rising demands for 3D rendering capabilities, object-oriented programming language, and capacity to run as a native executable on multiple platforms’.
Even with its popularity, Adobe flash was criticised by one of the major tech giants; Apple. Steve Jobs in his open letter cited Flash as a tool of ‘rapid energy consumption, poor performance on mobile devices, abysmal security, lack of touch support, and desire to avoid "a third party layer of software coming between the platform and the developer". Industry experts claimed Steve Jobs declaration was merely for business reasons as Apple’s systems suffered through similar drawbacks as well. Apple’s official website quotes “Apple would rather use HTML5, CSS and Javascript which has open standards as compared to ‘Closed’ Flash”. HTML5 is a new web standard which is now being widely accepted and used by Apple, Google and many others.

What is Google AdSense?
AdSense is one of the most convenient way to make additional money from your website. All you do is copy some code into your site to display the ads, and you earn every time someone clicks. You may also earn from impressions in some cases. All this is derived from a program they call AdWords PPC (pay per click) marketing.
Often see these ads displayed above the free or organic results & along with the right side of the page on Google. These are called as Sponsored Results, & the advertisers are paying a certain amount of money per click (Pay Per Click in short this concept called as PPC.) for these ads.
AdSense is your revenue share from AdWords ads. When someone clicks, you earn roughly 60% to 68% of the click and Google gets the rest. AdSense is an auction-based system that allows to advertisers competes for those spots. Whoever has the highest bid and most "quality" ad, gets the top spot and so forth.
It's a great program that can help drive additional income to your website, and it's really best for websites that are mainly content driven. The more content you have, the more Google can get a sense for what your site is about and better match the ads to your website. AdSense is not a get rich quick scheme and it takes a lot of work to make more money. Don't think that its just because you join, you are guaranteed to make big money.

Is it possible that we can see our ad on our page?
Yes, when you have got your ads running & up, then you will be able to see them on your website. A important thing to remember though, that is “not to click on your own ads”. Clicking on your own ads for any reason is not permitted by the Google AdSense program policies.

Can we remove our ad if we don’t like?
Yes. There is Allow & block ads tab in your AdSense account lets you need to review individual ads and choose whether to let them show or not on your page. Check out googles adsense policy guide to allowing & blocking ads on your site.

Smart object are like the layers in Photoshop that contain the images from the vector content like the Photoshop or the illustrator.
Sometimes editing an image would make the original image content to change. For example the image may be blurred if the size of the image is increased or decreased or the image may lose its quality if it is a high definition image. All these issues are a major concern when we upload images on the websites or use it for web based purpose.
Optimizing an image for web use is one good option before we actually include the images into our websites. 

Smart Objects preserve an image’s source content with all its original characteristics that enable the editing of the layer without destroying the properties of the layer.
·         Using the Smart Object you can perform transformation that are non destructive in nature i.e. the user can easily scale, rotate, distort or wrap the layer without losing the image’s original quality.
·         The vector data from the illustrator is rasterized in Photoshop; to avoid this we can make use of Smart Objects.
·         It is possible to edit filters applied to Smart Objects at any time.
·         Edit one Smart Object and automatically update all its linked instances.
·         We can try various designs with low-resolution placeholder images that we can later replace with final versions.

Linked Smart Objects
This feature was introduced in the Photoshop CC 14.2 update and made it possible to use external source files for Smart Objects. We can use an image or vector file in several Photoshop documents as a Linked Smart Object.
If you modify the original object later on, it will automatically update in all of your PSD files i.e. edit one Smart Object and automatically update all its linked instances.
Another advantage to Linked Smart Objects is that they won't increase your Photoshop document's file size.
Thus Smart Objects are an incredibly powerful tool in Photoshop. They can be used to speed up your workflow but also to retain the quality of your images, and reduce file size.
