What Are You Planning To Get Your Dad This Father’s Day?

June 19th, 2005: A 10 year-old-paced around in his room with a frown on his forehead. He had outdone himself a little over a month ago on Mother’s Day. The surprise for his mom included a freshly-baked cake from scratch, her favourite music compiled into a playlist for her work commute and his room cleaned from top to bottom. He pretended to be sick so he could stay at home and spend the day making sure everything was done.
This time, however, things were ever so slightly trickier. It was a Sunday so both his parents were home and he had procrastinated planning the ideas themselves so it was a messy situation. As he silently scolded himself, his eyes landed on giant pile of old albums that were lying under his bed and it dawned on him. A few hours later he took a step back and admired his work.
He quietly peeked out of his room to check whether his parents had left to go grocery shopping or not. Once it was all set up, he hid in one of the corners of the room and waited for them.
13 year ago, the look on my father’s face is still etched in my memory like it was yesterday. His expression from seeing forgotten photos of him from his younger days, with me, and with the rest of his family and friends strung together by thread and put on display in his room like streamers was nothing short of priceless. Many years later, I’m in a similar dilemma as that day, trying to think of a gift for someone who has everything he could possibly need.
The fact that I was living in another country did not help my case either. So for those in the same boat as me, here are a few suggestions to save the day:
● DIY (Do-It-Yourself) Gifts
○ These are almost always a safe way to go. At the cost of some time and a little bit of your creative energy, these gifts not only hold a lot of sentimental value but also allow you to truly personalize the gift for Daddy dearest.
● Personalized Gifts
○ Not everyone is artistically inclined, and for those people, the internet has sites like Etsy. Go online and order an engraved lighter or a custom Guinness pint glass for him to make it extra special.
Video Game Recharge
○ If you have someone like my father who spends a lot of time on Nintendo or on the PlayStation or XBOX then doing a mobile top-up on their favourite gaming console just might be the way to go. They get to pick how they spend the money and you don’t have to worry about whether he’ll like it or not.
● Call
○ This is one of the most underrated gifts of all time. If you aren’t in the same town as your father, an online mobile top-up for domestic and cheap international calls via Kwikpay will allow you to wish him (and maybe even promise to call more often!).
The number of ideas is endless but this list’s purpose is to get the juices flowing and spark something. Fathers love us unconditionally year round so I hope this assists you in creating this year’s Father’s Day unique and memorable.

5 Useful Mobile Maintenance Tips to Keep Your Mobile as Good as New!

Useful Mobile Maintenance Tips

How often do you upgrade your phone? Are you someone who gets the newest version every year or someone who likes to use the same phone for as long as you can? Regardless of which category you fall in, the days of black and white Nokia phones are long gone when you didn’t have to worry about the upkeep of your mobile. With smartphones being only a few features short of being a full-fledged laptop itself, active maintenance and knowledge of the same have never been more needed. The best part about this is that you do not need to be some technologically savvy individual and neither do you need to spend countless hours trying to make a habit out of it.

  • Phone Case
    • Investing in a phone cover of good quality from a company like Spigen, JETech, or Torras will be a one-time investment that will be quite beneficial. Whether it slips out of your hand or is knocked off the table by your dog, having a sturdy phone case will ensure the body of the phone is safe and isn’t easily damaged.
  • Charging
    • The uninformed consumer will believe the myth that the battery should always be charged to 100% before being unplugged and then used till it runs out. This might’ve been the case in the last decade but modern batteries don’t need to be charged like that. Charging your battery once it reached around 50% or shallow charging, has been found to put less strain on the battery and helps it lasts longer.
  • Security
    • In an age where hacking and identity theft is commonplace, you’d be remiss not to have your phone protected from external threats. Having a passcode on your phone is the first step. Adding a PIN on your Sim card would be the next. Finally, for the extra cautious, get a VPN (Virtual Private Network) software so your internet activity is protected.
  • Temperature
    • Although it is fairly obvious to some, I want to emphasize that you should make sure not to expose your mobile to extreme temperature, from hot to cold and vice versa. This is one of the most likely reasons for internal hardware damage.
  • Storage
    • It is always advised to not fill up the memory to it is maximum capacity for a couple of different reasons. This includes not being able to download new apps, inability to upgrade existing apps as well as performance lags and slowdowns. A simple fix to this would be to clear your cache as well as your RAM every few months.

Your lifestyle, the way you treat your phone as well as how cognizant you are of the above guidelines will determine the longevity of mobile phone’s life. It is obviously your choice whether you want to keep up with technology or not, however, what is important to consider is how much you will end up spending on reparations when you could have simply avoided the damage by taking preemptive actions.

No internet, just excellent connectivity

As a vending machine owner, what vexes you more- not knowing that your machine is out of a certain product or has not dispensed cold drinks at the right temperature- you have lost crucial sales. Worst that your machine is not functioning well or scheduling a repair without any idea about what the real problem is.
As a vending machine operator, you can spend a fortune on installing the best available telemetry solution & combining it with a VMS which you hope will make it easier for you to increase sales. However, like most other operators in the industry, you probably do not get information more than 4 times a day which makes it difficult to make crucial decisions. By the time you understand on the account of being unable to service your customers.
With Kwikpay, you can upgrade your existing vending machine to an intelligent vending machine which does not require any internet at the machine. This can be done in a matter of minutes with virtually no down time. Consumers interact with the vending machine using the Kwikpay app, select their favourite products & pay using various digital payment methods available on Kwikpay app.

No more connectivity issues on vending machines

In spite of several businesses working from an online platform, there are several cases of data outrages and low connectivity. This is pretty much the same situation with the new-aged vending machine operation. Almost all smart machines rely on internet connectivity for telemetry functions or for dissension of items. But now for a VMO; low signal, no problem!
Kwikvend uses Bluetooth to connect the vending machine to your customer’s mobile device so that they can go through and choose from the menu items without even touching the machine. This means that there is no reliance on internet or WiFi to initiate sales. Kwikvend by Kwikpay, in association with Vendekin Technologies, is the technology needed to upgrade your VMO without incurring more infrastructure charges or downtime.
The customers can connect to the machine without internet using the Kwikpay app, pay using an e-wallet with their phone internet and there you go! The no-touch patented technology will dispense the item right out. No downtime, no hassles, and smooth sales.

Holiday travel made easy with on-the-go top up | Kwikpay
