This article will help you create a mobile application for your blog/website in less than five (5) minutes.
There has been a steady decline in mobile web over last few years and apps are now ruling the mobile space. Stats from Flurry suggest that in 2014, mobile users spent 86% of their mobile using time on apps, up from 80% in 2013. Publishers also value app users more than web users, and ‘Download App’ ads are plentiful on mobile sites. Mobile users find it more convenient to use apps than mobile web and the traffic to the WAP sites has been reducing.
Recent trends show popularity of apps among mobile users, and hence it is logical for WAP site owners to ride the prevailing trends. Leading publishers across industries have developed their apps. It’s time you also have an app for your mobile web contents

Lg Lcd Led 3d Tv Monitor Price List In Nigeria - Lg Tv Shops Online
Are you looking for a durable and lasting LG LCD LED 3D or Flatscreen TV to buy online in Nigeria and pay on delivery? Here is a guide on how to buy an original LG brand TV from an authorized LG shop and get full value for your money.
4K HD Resolution
The only commercially-available TVs that have resolution better than 1080p are 4K TV (sometimes called QuadHD, UltraHD, or 2160p). These new-to-market panels offer a 3840x2160 resolution, which is four times that of 1080p HDTVs. Though this spec might sound impressive, there are very few sources of content available at such a resolution; most of the time you'd just be watching 1080p video on a screen that could handle much, much more.
Overall, 4K is best suited to early adopters who want in on the latest and greatest or next-wave of technology. But 4K isn't necessary for the everyday consumer — yet. If you're thinking of buying a new TV, don't put off buying a 1080p screen in fear of it becoming outdated by 2160p new technology any time soon.
Many basic LG LCD LED 3D or Flatscreen TVs refresh their images at a rate of 60 times per second, or 60Hz. This is perfect for video signals, as they come in at 30 frames per second and allows each frame to be refreshed twice. A 60Hz refresh rate clarifies the video image. However, since film is recorded at 24 frames per second, a 60Hz refresh rate can also get in the way. In order to properly display a movie, the TV's hardware does something called "2:3 pulldown;" essentially, it takes the 24 frames of film image (from a DVD or the like) and displays the first frame three times, the second frame twice, then the third three times, and so forth. When displayed on large TVs, this process can become very apparent, revealing itself through jerky motion called "judder" and a blurring of the image during scenes with fast motion.
Alternatively, 120Hz televisions refresh an image 120 times a second, which works out perfectly for both video at 30fps and film at 24fps because each frame can be refreshed at a constant rate: four times for video, five for film. A 120Hz refresh rate results in smoother and clearer images, especially during action scenes and sports events. Most brand-name TVs these days will have 120Hz refresh rates, although third-tier TVs are certainly not excluded from the spec.
TVs with a 240Hz refresh rate are currently being pushed by LG manufacturers as some of the best TVs available, but a higher refresh technology adds a premium price, too. However, for 99% of consumers a 120Hz refresh rate will suit all TV-watching needs just fine. And because 240 is also a multiple of 24 and 30 and the difference between 120Hz and 240Hz is not as apparent as the difference between 60Hz and 120Hz. In fact, side-by-side, the improved quality of a 240Hz over 120Hz is barely noticeable.
Brightness is a measure of the intensity of light that the TV panel is capable of emitting, and it's listed as candelas per square meters (cd/m2) or as "nits" (one candela per square meter). A candela is equivalent to the amount of light a single candle emits. Therefore, an LG TV with a brightness of 300 cd/m2 (or 300 nits) is capable of emitting as much light as 300 candles do in a square meter of space. Naturally, a higher brightness number means a brighter picture. This specification is more important for TVs that will be viewed in an environment with a lot of light, as you'll want your screen to be able to overcome the ambient environmental light.

My dear, My candid advice for you is this:
Do not invest all your invest in one place.
Split your money and spread them across reliable investment like FBN Capital market, invest in your business presence online to multiply your sales and keep some as cash for future opportunities.
