First Look: Google's Project Jacquard, Levi's smart jacket

Image
Ever wondered how it would feel to wear a jacket that performs actions on your smartphone with gestures? Well, nobody thought it would be possible, but Google had other plans!

Google' Project Jacquard has taken off with the introduction of Levi's new smart jacket and is set to take the world by storm.



It’s targeted at people who commute by bike, and I think the only people beyond that target market are going to be a few techies and people who just really like jean jackets. Also, it works with both Android and iPhone.


When you talk to both Levi’s and Google, they’re very eager to tell a design story about this jacket, not just a technology story. It comes out of a partnership between the clothing company and a small division of Google dedicated to experimentation. We’ve seen lots of weird projects inside Google’s ATAP, but most of them (like the ill-fated Project Ara) have ended up getting scuttled.
The Levi's Trucker jacket is currently available in the United States for $3…

How to create awesome headers for Facebook pages and Twitter handles

Image
Facebook pages and Twitter handles work wonders for your business, if you create and share the right content on them. Apart from the content, the design of the page makes a big difference in attracting and retaining the right customers or just customers in general.

Most of the newbies and even experienced pros make this mistake of not creating compelling social media pages, something which instantly catches attention and even engages the audience for long.


But, we live in the 21st century, wherein social media is more than just a marketing tool and developers from across the globe have developed online design websites to help out people with lack of design sense.

"Canva makes your social media posts stand out of the crowd!"

Though the internet is full of such online tools, in my perspective Canva really stands out of the crowd.


Once you create your account on Canva, login and go to the dashboard. As you can see in the pic above, the dashboard showcases a variety of options to cho…

How to create and add Google sitemap to Blogger

Image
A sitemap is essentially a list of pages which are a part of the website, accessible to web crawlers and even users. Sitemaps are important because they allow search engines like Google and Bing to discover pages on your website, which otherwise crawlers might have missed during regular crawling.



What is the problem with Blogger sitepmap files?

An complete sitemap file should mention all pages of a site but that’s not the case if your blog is hosted on Blogger.

The default XML sitemap file of any Blogger blog will have only the 26 most recent blog posts. That’s a limitation because some of your older blog pages, that are missing in the default XML sitemap file, may never get indexed in search engines. There’s however a simple solution to fix this problem.

How to generate a complete sitemap for your blogger blog?

This section is valid for both regular Blogger blogs (that use a .blogspot.com address) and also the self-hosted Blogger blogs that use a custom domain (like abc.com).
