PowerPoint Backgrounds of The Sci-Fi Movie: Looper

Looper poster
An American sci-fi and action movie called Looper hits theater in North America and United Kindom since yesterday. This film is directed by Rian Johnson and stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis and Emily Blunt.

The film's plot is like the poster slogan said: "Hunted by your future. Haunted by your past". The movie tells such a story: In the year 2044, there's a young man named Joe Simmons (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) works for an assassin organization called Looper in Kansas city. Crime and violence always happen in USA at that time. 25-year old Joe has to become a mercenary to make a living. 

Joe is sent to Shanghai of the year 2077, in order to kill a target who makes trouble in the future. Loopers are all well trained assassins and never fail to kill their targets. But this time, Joe fails to complete the operation because he recognizes the target is an older himself (Bruce Willis).

After failure of mission, Joe can no longer return to the past. More and more loopers are sent to 2077 and plan to kill the young and old Joes. At that moment, what the young Joe can do is to take up weapons, cooperate with old Joe and find out the truth.

Well, as a sci-fi movie fan, I'm planning to watch this film a few days later. Here I collect some official wallpapers and share with you. They can also be used as PowerPoint backgrounds or templates.

How to Play PowerPoint on Motorola Droid Razr M

Motorola Droid Razr M
Motorola's Droid Razr M smartphone is now on sale in the US market for Verizon. Announced with another 2 Droid Razr handsets on September 5, this device comes up with a 4.3'' Super AMOLED advanced display with 960*540 resolution. It's also equipped with a 1.5GHz Dual-Core Snapdragon processor and runs Android 4.0.4 OS. For cameras, it has a 8.0 MP rear-facing camera with 4 times digital zoom, auto focus and flash LED. The secondary camera supports 720p video recording.

As an Android based smartphone, you have no difficulty playing this handset in daily life. Watching movies, sending e-mails and surfing on the Internet, just a piece of cake. How about playing PowerPoint on Droid Razr M? As we all know there are some apps to view PPT on Android phones : Documents To Go,Quick Office, Kingsoft Office, etc. However, these apps sometimes can not completely replace the function of PowerPoint on PC. It's quite inconvenient for businessmen to watch PowerPoint on their phone. Is there any solution to view PowerPoint on Droid Razr M? Yes, we can convert PPT files to other formats, for example, to videos.

It's not difficult to do that. What we need to do is use a software named PowerPoint to Droid Razr M video converter.It's free download and able to convert PowerPoint files to different video formats just with a few clicks.

To introduce the conversion process more clearly, I have made the following guide:


Step 1: Input PowerPoint files.

Download, install and launch the converter. You'll see the main interface with simple guides of the software. Click the Add button and choose the PowerPoint files from your hard drive. The converter supports batch conversion so that you're able to add multiple files at the same time. Files can be review on the screen.

Step 2: Setup output video format.
Click the Profile drop down menu, you'll see a list of output video formats. Hundreds of options with different formats and resolutions are available. We choose "Motorola Droid Series" as the output format. As the Droid Razr M is a new model, to make the video plays on the phone fluently, we need to setup its parameters.

Advanced settings
Click the Settings button, a new Profile window pops up. You're free to setup the parameters here, such as Video Codec, Quality, etc. As I mentioned above, the resolution of Droid Razr M is 960*540, so the video size should also be the same.

Step 3: Convert PowerPoint to Video.
Click the big Start button and wait for the conversion. 

A new window will pop up and provide you some notices. Click OK button to continue.


Process starts. The conversion time depends on the file size and your PC's speed.


 When it is done, a new window pops up and shows you the results.


The last but not least step, check out the videos from the folder.

Put the videos into your Motorola Droid Razr M smartphone and watch play conveniently!!

Top 5 Thinnest Smartphones in the World

Well, I know that most of the apple fans will be extremely happy because the iPhone 5 will launch today. On the announcement last week, apple officially described this handset as "the world's thinnest smartphone" for its 7.60mm thickness. 

I was confused about the thickness issue of phones. Has the new iPhone 5 become the thinnest smartphone in the world? After searching for a while on the Internet, I could finally tell you: No. It's never the thinnest one. I have found some other smartphones which are thinner than iPhone 5. Now let's have a look.


No.5 Motorola Droid Razr XT912 (7.10mm)

The fifth place in my ranking is even thinner than iPhone 5. Any comments, apple?

No.1 BBK vivo X1 (6.55mm)

As a matter of fact, the OPO Finder had kept the 1st place for a couple of months until the announcement of BBK vivo X1. This may be the thinnest phone we have ever seen. Do the Chinese phone makers want to challenge the limit of the cellphone's thickness?
