Living a Good Life: Maximize Energy, Boost Creativity and Never Burn out.

No one likes to have jobs burn outs. Burnout directly affects motivation, enthusiasm and productivity. Job burn outs hamper living a good life. Wouldn’t you agree that working fewer hours, have more time for fun and leisure, produce better output in terms of high quality work and never burn out, is an ideal situation to Living a Good Life? But it’s a “too good to be true” a situation. Am sure no one’s going to buy this. When heaps of work piles up, then all that one believes is to roll up their sleeves and work extra hours and get done with it.

More Time is not the answer: Overtime, philosophy hinders our quality of life. This in turn will reduce the quality of personal life. Hence we will get less work done over longer periods. While the work load may increase due to increase in clientele, but the crux is that most of the work are the pending work that has crossed dead line or it has taken more time than it should have taken. Working nonstop without a break for relaxation, spend a social life with friends and relatives adds to stress which has a long term negative consequence on our health, relationships, creativity and motivation.

Let's learn how to tackle a situation like this which is faced commonly by most of us on a daily basis. Experts from SpinxWebDesignAtlanta.com have written this article especially in relation to the life of webmasters, who work under a lot of stress as they have deadlines to meet and in a stipulated time.

1. We need a Paradigm shift:  Hence, since time is a limited resource and not in our control, we must find a resource right within us and that resource is Energy, one that we have control and one that can be renewed. So, it means the more energy we have the most tasks would be accomplished. If we ignore the “lack of time” factor and concentrate on energy, the result will be more work with less time, more time for leisure and lead a balanced life.

2. Implementing a High Energy Lifestyle:  Before we actually decide to change real life situation into an action plan, we’ll have to first take a look at what’s first going on in our life. Situations wherein one is mentally, emotionally and spiritually burnt out and physically out of shape. All these put together hinder a healthy work life balance and perform at one’s best. Now it’s possible to change and increase our energy level. Let’s see how:

A) By Leading a Life full of purpose, this will automatically draw positive energy and we will be able to achieve what we have planned in our life.

B) By learning to focus on one thing, we are able to get work done at a higher quality and in very less time. Multi tasking can create havoc and hence it’s better to concentrate on one thing at a time.

C) By cultivating a high quality emotional state, one can produce best results. One should learn to build a strong response to negativity; this will enhance resilience, which in turn will help produce high quality results.

D) Lets re define Fitness: Most of us are good at pushing ourselves to our limits. This means work more without any relaxation which results in stress and lack of motivation to persist. It’s very important to realize the physiological aspects that humans are designed for example, keeping a check on the energy used and the renewing of energy before its next expenditure, will give us a fairly good idea and better gauze of fitness. Lets us see a few things that we can do to re define fitness:  Take time for yourself and rest .This may not be “the” important factor but it is definitely imperative. Taking 15 min break after every 90 min of work and 7 hours of sleep will rejuvenate and one will feel fresh to work. Diet and exercise also if pursued on a daily basis, will renew physical energy. Music can relax one and hanging out with friends, are some of the paradigm to explore and renew energy. The key is rebuilding one’s life and health without burning out for living a healthy life.

"Gmail SMS" – 'African Countries Get the Privilege of Being the First Ones to Avail This Revolutionary Service'

Google has started an amazingly new service which lets Gmail users send and receive emails through their mobiles just like the messaging service. This means that users need not to have a mobile phone with WiFi or 3G capabilities to go for this service. You need to have a basic mobile with SMS and voice facilities with which you can email through text messaging by activating a setting on your Gmail account.

What does it do?

Gmail SMS automatically does text messaging of emails that you want to send through mobile phone to the other user and in return the other user can respond you by replying directly to the SMS sent as an email. You can control the emails by using various functions such as Resume, Pause, and More, etc. Also when you send an email as an SMS to an email address recipient, that recipient will get your email as an SMS in the right conversation thread.

How does it work?

• Login to your Gmail account
• Click on your profile
• Go to "Account"
• Enter into "Phone and SMS" section
• Just enter your mobile phone number to connect it with your account so as to be able to send and receive emails from your mobile.
• After you get a verification code on your mobile, just enter that number on the setup page.

You will be charged for your local SMS rates even if Gmail SMS is free. Google plans to open up this service gradually to the world but initially it has targeted Africa, with countries like Kenya, Nigeria and Ghana as the launch pad. This service shows the importance of short messaging service as to how chatting or emailing could be done without any need of internet, wifi, or 3G. It is crucial for most cellular networks as SMS is their core area and also it plays an important role in countries that don't have significant web coverage in case of desktops, tablets or mobiles.

Webmasters from Spinx INC. – Web Design Company in Florida like to congratulate all Africans to be the first one for using this amazing SMS service by Google.

Memristors – ‘the future of computing storage and memory’

What are the 'Memristors'?

"Memristor" or a "Memory Resistor" is the latest type of an electrical circuit which maintains a stable flow of electricity in a circuit by working as a resistor and maintains the charge due to the loss of power by working as a capacitor. It is speculated to potentially replace flash memory in computers which will make them more efficient in power consumption, faster speed and cheaper technology. It can be imagined as a circuit through which when the current flows in one direction, it expands making it less resistive. But when the same current flows in the opposite direction, it shrinks making it more resistive. It remembers its diameter whenever last current passes through. So when you turn off the current, memristor freezes its diameter until current is again turned on. That ability to store the resistance for an indefinite period makes the memristor work as a nonvolatile memory in computers.

Why 'Memristors' are useful?

Memristors remember information on a permanent basis and can switch in nanosecond making it super fast and power efficient so as to act as potential replacement for DRAM, flash, and disk in the future. Our Technology Expert at SpinxWebDesignNewYork.com says, this is due to the fact that Memristors have the power and speed of the RAM and the life of a hard disk. Not only DRAM, disk and flash, memristors are also expected to replace CDs and DVDs in the future as it is considered to be a universal non-volatile memory which has a lifetime more than that of a flash, and still in the expanding phase.


Memristors require a system redesign as it is not a plug and play compatible technology. It just won't take a memristor chip or RAM module to make it work. Memristor is a technology which allows multiple crossbar memories stacked on top of each other. This allows multiple terabytes (preciously 128TB which is equal to 1PB (petabyte)) to occupy one square centimeter of space. Just imagine a huge amount of power stored efficiently in a small space. Memristors naturally implement material implication logic, which interconnects various other electrical components to create any logical operation, and that's why it can also act as a CPU.


Memristors have got the capability to decide whether to use some block as a memory, a switching network, or logic. When memristors dynamically change between memory and logic operations, it enables calculations to be performed simultaneously with the storage of data instead of occupying a special space in CPU. HP (Hewlett Packard) has already created a prototype of memristor way back in 2008 and as per latest updates it might take HP to make memristors to be made commercially available by 2014 as they have started to work on building the memristors which will consume lower power, have a more durable life, are smaller in size and faster in performance.


With storage capacity in petabytes (128TB) and collocated CPU and data, memristors resemble a large cluster compacted in a small sized device just like a whole data center in the form of a brick. So what we have is a purpose device that can handle small to large data input sizes, small to large output sizes, and small to large computational demands. If your database fits in RAM by partitioning across multiple boxes, and if you have got enough processing power to handle your application combined with enough bandwidth to move your data around, then RAM could already act as your new disk. In a memristor, features of the RAM, flash, and disk are all unified and databases are also stored effectively.

Benefits With memristors, you have large quantities of data directly accessible to the CPU. Memristors can configured CPUs too which results in computation and data. Memristors have an ability to configure the memory dynamically with the help of logic devices and so it's perfect to apply functions to the data as configurations work in parallel. Memristors are useful in building highly integrated low power devices eliminating the risk and expense in creating ASICs as the current sensor devices are too cumbersome, expensive, and use ample power.


In case of memristors, writing applications will give developers a low cost benefit and the ability to build scalable applications, by remaining independent and looking for new opportunities. Will memristors make it possible to create highly integrated devices that will take fewer parts to build and consume low power? Memristors could revolutionize the technology of embedded systems in terms of its applicability.

Responsive Design or Separate Mobile Website: The Right Choice

"Discussion" is a self explanatory word.  It is related to the length of discussion and in some cases a never ending one as it involves different people with different views and thinking.

Let’s discuss the web designing world, whether one should opt for a responsive design or build a separate website for mobile. In this context, different designers have different opinions and they use their perception while designing a website.

User Frustration with Separate Websites:

Separate websites for different devices frustrates the users. Designers also feel that the users of websites want full website experience and not have part of the feature for which they need to hit the web site or another device for the rest of the features which can leave the end user in a state of frustration.

Cost Effective Design:

Responsive website designing is cost-effective method because in it designers have to create and maintain only one website. This saves money of building separate website for different devices .Also maintenance of different website can be avoided. While having a responsive website, designer can avoid future upgrading charges when new mobile device hits the market.

What SEO Thinks:

Expert SEO thinks that responsive website design is more search engine friendly than creation of separate website design for different devices as it generates different domains which split the traffic.

Responsive Design Takes a Long Time to Load in Mobiles:

Web Designers who prefer to have separate mobile websites share that when a responsive website designs open in mobile device it takes a long time to load because all HTML codes and other scripts are there in the website.  They also add that if we have separate mobile website we can optimize its code according to device.

Different Content from Desktop Website:

Many web designers think that the mobile websites need a different content from desktop websites and also say that the responsive website design can pair with different devices but it cannot provide an easy user experience to website visitors who surf their site on mobile or other devices.

Un-optimized Code for Different Devices:

The team who prefers to have separate mobile websites says that the responsive design works according to varied device screen size and screen resolution but it would not serve best with different web devices as it has UN optimized code for different web devices.

Blunders To Avoid While Choosing Website Templates

Website design is field where creative minds can showcase their imagination power, but at the same time it is very critical and tedious process to get perfection in it. It consumes considerable time and fruitful efforts to design appealing and interactive website. But, designing a website with the help of template could help you a lot in saving your time with fewer efforts.

Choosing appropriate website templates could help web designers to design appealing and unusual website with ease. But, at SpinxWebDesignNewYork.com we thinks that choosing a wrong template for your website could result into disasters. Below are some of the most common blunders website designers often make while choosing website templates for their website.

Choosing the template which has been used more than often in past! Designers often make mistake of choosing the template which is already been used in so many website. By choosing such template will make your website look crowded and won’t create visual appeal. Often users may have seen those designs before in other sites, so they won’t feel anything new within your when they visit your site and may leave within few seconds. So, try to avoid making such mistakes of choosing repeated templates.

Designers often select template which not at all suits their business needs or website requirements! Many times it happens that while searching for template you may find one beautiful template that has strong user appeal and you use such template even if it doesn’t fit in your business process or not fulfill your requirements too. This will make your website look ugly even if you have chosen beautiful template as there is no connection between the theme of website and its functionalities. Avoid making such mistakes.

Not so easy to customize! This is very crucial to choose templates which are easy to customize or allow making changes according to your needs. Often designers choose template which doesn’t allow them to make any changes in it. In most cases, if you choose free templates then it is really rare to find templates allowing customization. Though try to find template which allows customization. In that case paid templates could be the best options.

Choosing flash templates! Flash templates are of course provide ample look ‘n’ feel to the users, but they are not at all recommended by any website designers as it will slow the down the performance of the website at the end and they are also not compatible with SEO as well. So, try to avoid using such templates within your website.

Poor SEO compatibility! Choosing templates having poor SEO compatibility may lead to get poor SEO rakings for your website, so try to avoid choosing such template.
So, these are some of the very common blunders web designers should avoid while choosing website template for designing website.
