Best Netflix Series You Should Check Out: The Top 10

 Ever since Netflix became officially available in Nigeria, TV fans now have almost unlimited access to the best from the world of television series. However, Netflix is also known for its amazing original content. Check out 10 must-see best Netflix series!

1. Daredevil

If you are in love with the Marvel universe but have already seen every Marvel movie more than once, it’s time to watch Daredevil! Think of it as the darker, but equally addictive version of your favourite universe. Sadly, the series has been cancelled by Netflix after 3 seasons, but even those three season are worth checking out.



2. Orange Is The New Black

Orange Is The New Black is a series that was launched in 2013 and is based on a real life story of its author.

With six seasons to date, Orange Is The New Black is guaranteed to captivate you and occasionally break your heart.

3. Stranger Things

Stranger Things has many things to offer to its viewers: the unique atmosphere of the 1980s, the superb performances both from child and adult actors, and the bone-chilling suspense you feel watching every episode. There have only been 2 seasons of Stranger Things, but it is surely enough to get you hooked!

4. The Crown

Real-life stories are often even more fascinating than fiction, which is one of the reasons The Crown has been such a huge hit with Netflix viewers. The Crown focuses on the story of Queen Elizabeth II, but it’s much more than a portrayal of her private life – you will learn as much about British politics from The Crown as you would from any renowned writer.

5. Dear White People

Despite the somewhat controversial name, Dear White People is one of the best TV series right now. It’s a show that covers a broad range of topics, from socialization to romance. The series follows a group of students who try to navigate their path in a world that isn’t always as welcoming and understanding as they’d hope.

6. The Haunting Of Hill House

Some of the best tv series on Netflix are dramas and comedies, but the occasional change of genre also brings remarkable results. The Haunting Of Hill House is a horror series that covers the experience of a family that moves into a haunted manor and goes through a whole lot of terrifying events. The series even got praise from Stephen King!



7. Luke Cage

Luke Cage is another series created in a collaboration between Netflix and Marvel. It investigates the life of a man who is working in a restaurant by day and fights crime by night. The character was first introduced in the Jessica Jones series, but successfully got a life of its own. Unfortunately, the series was cancelled after two seasons.



8. House Of Cards

The next entry on the best Netflix series list, House Of Cards is a remake of a British show under the same name. However, thanks to the impeccable acting from the cast and the well-written storyline that connects all six seasons into one thrilling experience. the Netflix version of House Of Cards is definitely a must-see.



9. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

If you are looking for a show that makes you feel good, causes you to laugh out loud every couple of seconds, and is filled with pop culture references you know and love, check out Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Centered around the life of Kimmy and her closes friends, this show is guaranteed to become your favourite.



10. Narcos

The Netflix series Narcos has four seasons and focuses on the life of the famous drug kingpin, Pablo Escobar. The show cleverly mixes fiction with real-life news stories to explore the drug trafficking problem of the 1980s and the way authorities dealt with this problem.

How To Answer Your Calls From Another Person’s Phone If Your Battery Is Low Or Phone Is Off

How To Answer Your Calls From Another Person’s Phone If Your Battery Is Low Or Phone Is Off

In the time when we are so dependent on our mobile phones, losing the opportunity to receive calls for a while can make you feel uneasy and even hurt you professionally if your job requires you to always be near the phone. If your phone battery is low or you won’t have access to your mobile phone for some time, here is how to answer your calls from another person’s phone.


No matter what you may be reading from questionable online sources, the only way to answer your phone calls on another person’s phone is to forward them to the target phone. This service may not be supported by your or another person’s service provider, but if it is supported, it can be easily turned on nearly any mobile device with the help of Settings. Alternatively, your service provider may have a specific procedure or a short USSD code to forward your calls, so make sure to try the provider’s website first. Here is how to forward phone calls on Android and Apple mobile phones.


1. How To Forward Calls On Android Phones

To forward your calls to another person’s phone while you temporarily don’t have access to your own device, here is what you need to do:

  • Launch the Phone app.
  • Tap the menu button or the icon with three dots to reveal the available menu options.
  • If there is a Call Settings option, choose it. If there are only Settings, go there and then Choose Call Settings.
  • Find the Call Forwarding option.
  • There are several ways to forward your calls: Always Forward, where 100% of your calls are forwarded to another number, Forward When Unanswered, when the caller misses you, Forward When Unreached, when your phone is off, and Forward When Busy, when you manually reject the call. Choose whichever option is the most appropriate one in your situation. Normally, you’ll want to choose Always Forward if you are going to be away from your phone for some time.
  • Enter the phone number where your calls will be forwarded and confirm your choice by tapping Enable or OK.
  • Don’t forget to disable call forwarding when you get full access to your mobile phone again.

2. How To Forward Calls On IPhones

iPhones make it even easier to transfer your calls to another number, as iOS doesn’t even make you choose the type of call forwarding feature you want to use. Here is how to forward the calls from your phone to another person’s telephone number.
  • Go to your phone’s general Settings, choose Phone, and then find the Call Forwarding option.
  • Use the switch to turn on call forwarding.
  • Enter the target number that will temporarily receive your calls, beginning with +.
  • Return to the previous menu to quit the call forwarding settings. Your changes will be saved automatically.
  • Don’t forget to turn call forwarding off when you have steady access to your phone again.

Get to Know the Difference Between Smart TV & Normal TV

 

Get to Know the Difference Between Smart TV & Normal TV
Smart TVs have been around for several years and millions of people all over the world already own this device. If you plan to buy a new TV and are wondering whether you should get a Smart TV, here is the difference between Smart TV and normal TV.

1. Difference Between Smart TV And Normal TV

When you compare a Smart TV with a regular TV, it becomes clear that Smart TV has many features that most normal TV sets do not have. These are the features commonly found in Smart TV that are missing from most normal TVs.
  • Can access the internet.
  • Combines the features of a TV and a computer.
  • Has an internet browser.
  • Has a variety of built-in apps.
  • Offers an opportunity to install additional ads.
  • Can be used to access streaming services.
  • Sometimes has a touch screen.
  • It’s worth noting that while most of these features were truly groundbreaking once Smart TVs appeared in the market, now many regular TVs possess many of the formerly exclusive Smart TV features.
2. Pros And Cons Of Smart TV

Like any other popular type of devices, Smart TV has both pros and cons, and here they are.

Pros:
  • You can use your Smart TV to remind you about the TV show episodes, news, and sporting events you want to see.
  • From a Smart TV, you can access popular streaming services like Netflix, as well as YouTube and other video services.
  • Smart TVs have numerous interactive applications that can enhance the TV viewing experience for every family member.
  • Over time, your Smart TV will learn more about your tastes and curate the content to reflect your preferences.
  • Most of the features on your Smart TV can be controlled remotely.

Cons:
  • Technology is becoming outdated very fast, so there is a big chance your Smart TV will stop supporting some of the apps in the next few years.
  • Smart TVs understandably are more expensive to purchase than regular TVs, but they are also far more expensive to repair.
  • Both the construction and the software of a typical Smart TV is very delicate and can be easily broken.
  • Most Smart TVs don’t have enough protection against potential hacker attacks on your software, which means your personal data may be under threat.


3. Should You Buy A Smart TV?

The question of whether Smart TVs are better or worse than normal TVs has been discussed ever since Smart TVs first appeared in the market, but people have not come to a conclusion yet.

However, most tech experts agree that Smart TV technology is far from perfect. The variety of apps available for Smart TVs is rather poor and the quality of the apps often leaves a lot to be desired, so if you were planning to use a Smart TV for gaming, accessing social media, and other app activities, you may be disappointed with your purchase.


The most popular way to use a Smart TV is for streaming various content, but even here a Smart TV does not deliver on its promise. Smart TV is not the best option for streaming compared to special streaming devices and even your regular laptop.

At the end of the day, the question of whether you should buy a Smart TV or regular TV depends on your budget. If you operate on a tight budget, a cheap Smart TV will be a rather disappointing device. If you have a bigger budget, then you can expect an expensive Smart TV to not have many of the disadvantages we’ve listed above.

How To Connect Your Phone To Your TV

How To Connect Your Phone To Your TV

Connecting your smartphone to your TV gives you nearly endless possibilities for enjoying all kinds of content. You can watch YouTube videos, enjoy streaming services, and even watch videos you recorded with your own phone. Here are the most popular ways to connect your phone to your TV.

1. Mirroring Your Phone

If you have a newer TV that is Wi-Fi enabled, you can connect your smartphone to your TV without any additional equipment. The only requirement is that your phone and your TV should belong to the same Wi-Fi network. Screen mirroring is a feature you will find on any modern smartphone, but it can have different names depending on the manufacturer: Screen Cast, Screen Mirroring, or Smart View. Choose this feature on your phone, select your TV as the target device, and everything happening on your phone will be displayed on your TV.

2. Via USB

The absolute majority of modern TVs come with USB ports. They are normally designed for USB drives that you can plug into the TV and watch the videos and photos stored on your drive. However, your smartphone can also be a USB drive in this case. Simply plug one end of the USB cable into your phone and the other end into your TV and find your phone on the TV’s menu. Note that this solution only allows you to view the files that are already saved on your smartphone, so you won’t be able to watch streaming videos this way.


3. With An App

There is a range of apps for Android phones that allow you to share the screen of your smartphone to your TV. Apps like LocalCasts and AllCast are free, easy to use, and let you view the photos, videos, and even music stored on your phone not just on nearly any modern TV, but also on your gaming console. AllCast even allows you to stream video files from the Dropbox cloud storage, so you can save a lot of the internal memory on your phone.


4. With An HDMI Cable

An HDMI cable is probably the easiest way to connect the smartphone to a TV, but there is a catch: you may need to look extra hard for a cable that matches your setup. The thing is that HDMI cables typically come with one HDMI port on each side of the cable. That is why you will probably need an adapter that works with your phone. For an Android device, you can find an HDMI to USB Type-C cable and connect your device that way. Apple users will need to search for a Lightning to HDMI adapter that can finally let them play their videos and photos on their TVs.


5. AirPlay

If you’re a lucky owner of two Apple devices, an iPhone or iPad and an Apple TV, you can connect your device to your TV wirelessly in a matter of seconds. When you play a video file or watch a streaming video on your phone, simply tap the AirPlay icon to share the stream to your Apple TV. You will be able to use all the controls you want for the video, including rotating and zooming the image.

You Can Now Make Money On Twitter! New Feature ‘Super Follows’ Explained

You Can Now Make Money On Twitter! New Feature ‘Super Follows’ ExplainedYou Can Now Make Money On Twitter! New Feature ‘Super Follows’ Explained

 Right now, there is no shortage of popular social media websites, but Twitter is a unique service and has millions of fans around the world. You can find all kinds of people on Twitter and there are lots of Twitter celebrities. Last week, Twitter rolled out the Super Follows feature that will help content creators make money. Here is how it works.

1. What Is Super Follows?

For over a decade, Twitter has been gradually becoming one of the most influential social networks. It’s perfect for all kinds of bite-sized content. However, popular Twitter users didn’t have a lot of ways to monetize their work and had to invest a lot of time and effort into creating their content for free. Sure, some Twitter celebrities went for Patreon and similar services to get rewarded for their work, but all of that happened outside of Twitter. Now Twitter is attempting to change that by introducing a Super Follows feature.

2. How Does It Work?

The Super Follows feature is yet to be fully unveiled, but we already know some of the details. The biggest fans of Twitter celebrities will be able to join a special group of followers by paying a monthly subscription fee. The benefits for those paid followers will range from exclusive performances to tweets that are only visible to the Super Follows group.

It’s also possible that paid users will get a badge next to their names or in their profiles to signal their commitment to a certain Twitter personality. And since the Super Follows feature allows content creators to make money and closely engage with their fans, it’s a win-win situation for everybody. We are genuinely excited about this feature to become fully available in the nearest future.


3. How Much Does It Cost?

At the moment, there is no clear information on how much the Super Follows feature is going to cost the users. It’s also not clear whether popular Twitter personalities will be able to choose their own subscription price or the price will be universal for all users. However, there are reports that subscribing to a single Twitter user can cost around $4.99 per month, which may not seem a lot, but if you have several Twitter users you’d like to support, your monthly subscription fee can round to several times more.
