Process Post 5- Mini Assignments, Peer Review and Accessibility

I particularly enjoyed this week’s reading, named “Digital Gardens” as it relates to what we are doing as a class. This blog talks about how people are making their own, personalized websites to post their content and all of it is under the same Internet. Even though it is gaining popularity now, it dates back to 1998 Mark Bernstein introduced the idea of the “hypertext garden,” arguing for spaces on the internet that let a person wade into the unknown. “Gardens … lie between farmland and wilderness,” he wrote.

Philosophical readings aside, I added yet another accessibility tool to my website, A TRANSLATOR! This is pretty cool. This idea came to me during tutorial when I overheard students talking in different mother tongues, and I thought to myself, “it would be sweet if they went to my website and could read posts in their own language.” This would promote inclusivity and add a personal touch to the website. This feature makes my website accessible to more people from different parts of the world.

Translator to increase accessibility

This tool is on the upper right portion of my website so it does not feel cluttered, nor does it block any content.

We have been working on our mini-assignments and the third one is due soon. I have a few ideas for it, so stay tuned! Our first peer review was due this week, so you can check it out here. I reviewed The Weekly Grain of Malt by Stephanie Malt.

Peer Review 1

Name-  Stephanie Malt


For this peer review, I will be reviewing Stephanie’s website. I have been visiting this website for a week and I see that it is frequently updated, follows a consistent theme in all the posts and I really enjoyed the content I see on there. On the About page, Stephanie explains the meaning of the website’s name and I liked the puns she made of her last name. This page is concise and clear and gives us the perfect introduction we need to herself and the website. This website is about her daily life where she has podcasts, SMISKI stories and unboxings, game reviews, and much more.


As the requirements wanted, the website has easy-to-navigate POSIEL/PUB 101 menus in the header. There are proper subheadings for all assignments and all links work as illustrated. I found her website very easy to use and all the posts and assignments were easy to navigate.

Header menus on

Content and Process Posts

Posts on this website were informally written, which makes it engaging and easy to follow. Stephanie used a combination of written posts, images and podcasts as her weekly content posts, which I found to be very cool. There were times I found that there could be a better use of grammar, but this could also be a personal choice in order to make the posts set their informal tone. I listened to her 35-minute podcast and I found it to be very well done. The teacher had told us that podcasts/video making as content posts should be done only if we have a history of making them, and I feel Stephanie has successfully proven to deliver a well-finished product.

The dates on the process and content posts show that they were worked upon and published in groups on the same day. Even though this is not a problem, WordPress offers an option to change the date of publishing, so my suggestion would be that Stephanie changes the dates in order to show these posts were published on different weekly dates.

The content posts are well-written and engaging, and the only suggestion I have is to probably tag them as “content” posts rather than blogs.

(PS- This is a personal suggestion and I would check with the TA or teacher if tagging “content posts” as “blogs” is also acceptable)


I like the overall design of the page and there is a simplistic yet consistent theme throughout. The landing page of the website shows all the posts with their respective featured images and a little excerpt of the post. This layout increases the accessibility of the website and gives the user a snippet of each post which they can continue reading upon clicking on the post. The website is also very accessible on phone and no feature is left behind even when viewing on a smaller screen.

Mobile vs Web Version

Overall, I find the blog very interesting and interactive. Both the theme and content with the course, and adding the Spotify widgets add look as well as interactivity. I will definitely return to this website and am looking forward to seeing what Stephanie does with it. Good luck.

Google Pixel 7 Pro (Content Post 4)

Google Pixel 7 Pro Review – A Pixel of Perfection

Out of all the phones I have reviewed so far, the Google Pixel 7 Pro is the epitome of a pure Android experience. It has arrived, and it continues to exemplify Google’s commitment to providing a pure Android experience with an exceptional camera, all wrapped in a sleek, premium design. As a proud Pixel user, I was eagerly awaiting the next installment, and the Pixel 7 Pro did not disappoint.

Design-wise, the Pixel 7 Pro features a refined design that strikes a balance between simplicity and sophistication. The sleek aluminum frame, combined with the textured glass back, not only looks premium but also feels great in hand! I feel that Google has paid extra attention to detail with a  subtly raised camera bump and added a well-placed fingerprint sensor on the back. It’s a design that’s both timeless and functional!

Starting off with the display, the 6.7-inch AMOLED display is a visual delight. The Quad HD+ resolution, along with a 120Hz refresh rate, ensures crisp and smooth visuals. HDR content shines on this screen, with deep blacks and vibrant colours. It’s equally suited for scrolling through social media, streaming your favourite shows, or gaming. I have played a few games on this phone and it was one of the best gaming experiences I’ve had on a phone.

Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro Review: Even Better Value | WIRED

The performance of this phone is unmatched. The Pixel 7 Pro comes equipped with the latest Snapdragon chipset and plenty of RAM, which delivers a blazing-fast performance. Apps open instantly, multitasking is a breeze, and it handles demanding games with ease. The stock Android experience is buttery smooth and free from bloatware. As always, Google’s commitment to timely updates ensures you’re never left behind. The materials this phone is made of are also sustainably sourced and Google has concentrated on using aluminum which can be fully recycled after its useful life (compared to plastic which is put to waste).

The camera system on the Pixel 7 Pro is where it truly shines. The primary sensor, complemented by an ultra-wide lens, captures photos with astonishing detail, accurate colours, and fantastic dynamic range. Google’s image processing software continues to set the bar for smartphone photography. New Night Sight and Astrophotography modes excel in low-light conditions. The front camera is equally impressive, delivering stunning selfies.

You might think that all these features have a heavy toll on the battery life. But in reality, the Pixel 7 Pro’s battery life is reliable, and easily gets through a full day with moderate usage. Google’s Adaptive Battery AI feature ensures that power-hungry apps are efficiently managed. Fast charging and wireless charging capabilities mean you’re never far from a quick top-up!

Lastly,  with 5G support, the Pixel 7 Pro takes advantage of lightning-fast data speeds, making it future-proof and ready for the next generation of mobile connectivity. Google’s software experience remains unparalleled. The Pixel 7 Pro runs on stock Android, ensuring a clean, uncluttered interface with a focus on user experience. The phone ships with the latest Android version, and you can expect prompt updates and security patches for years to come.

In conclusion, the Google Pixel 7 Pro is a testament to Google’s vision of what a smartphone should be. It marries top-tier hardware with a pure Android experience and a camera system that continues to set the standard for mobile photography. While the competition is fierce, the Pixel 7 Pro’s unique blend of design, performance, and software makes it a standout choice for Android enthusiasts and photography lovers. If you value a clean, well-supported Android experience and are passionate about capturing moments with your smartphone, the Pixel 7 Pro is a pixel-perfect choice.

Process Post 4- Audience, Accessibility and Adventure

What audience have you been imagining thus far? How has that imagined audience informed your design and editorial decisions?

The first reading this week from Michael Warner, titled. “Publics and Counterpublics”, talked about what the word “public” means, how it has different meanings and how it can be further interpreted by different people. The idea of a public is a cultural form, a kind of practical fiction, present in the modern world in a way that is very different from other or earlier societies. Like the idea of rights, or nations, or markets, it can now seem universal.

The next reading from Forbes was about how our undigitized past may be getting lost as people are always just online and think all their answers can be found just from a click of a button. It talks about museums, and written books that have not yet been digitalized due to copyrights or some reason. The writer says that a lot of information is being lost, especially from the 20th century as people don’t go out and seek information.

Moving on to my journey with website building, we talked about the target audience in class and who my posts are solely meant for/ who they indirectly target. With the world being exposed to new technology and devices every day, I would say that my phone blogs are meant for people who are looking to buy a new phone, who are keen on knowing the new devices in the market and people who share the same passion as me.

Continuing with my exploration of website building, our discussions in class extended to the crucial aspect of accessibility. It became apparent that ensuring that my website is user-friendly and accessible to all individuals, regardless of their abilities, is paramount. This involves implementing features like alt text for images and providing text-to-speech options for those with visual impairments.

For accessibility reasons, I have added quick links to the sidebar of my website and also an accessibility widget (shown in the screenshot below).

Accessibility widget (left) and sidebar (right) for added accessibility for the user

Now, diving into the world of adventure in website design, I realized that creating an engaging and visually stimulating platform can be just as important as the content itself. This adventure involves experimenting with various design elements, colour schemes, and interactive features to captivate and retain the attention of my target audience.

In my journey of website building, I aim to strike a balance between catering to the specific needs and interests of my target audience, ensuring accessibility for all, and embarking on the adventure of design creativity to make my website stand out in the ever-evolving digital landscape.

Mini Assignment #2

My personal hero right now- Miles Morales

Miles Morales- Spider-Man

I have watched two of the Spiderverse movies this month and I have been a fan of them since. I spent hours on websites that talked in-depth about the movie and watched videos that dissect each important part and go further than what is shown in the movies. I have always been a Spiderman fan and Miles is currently my personal hero from the Marvel Universe. This is because he is around my age, attending university while also being a superhero and someone who has everyday struggles as well. I look up to him as university for me is challenging enough that I have reduced my co-curricular, but he is out there (fictionally) being a superhero full-time as well. This gives me the motivation to manage my time better and spend time building a skill, volunteering and being active.

As Miles said, “Everyone keeps telling me how my story is supposed to go. Sorry, I’m doing my own thing.” That’s what I’m doing for the rest of the year!

Process Post 3…

So the story of my website building continues. I have had a steady momentum making my website and there are lots of new features that I came across. I have made a list of all these and hope to add them over the next few weeks. I have been making drafts and seeing previews of how components look (placement).

This is a good week to talk about this as we discussed this in class and our readings related to placement and design as well. In this week’s reading, I learned about the three affordances of social media – “anonymity, persistence, and visibility”. This reading was rather interesting to me as a young adult as I progress and dive deeper into creating a good, honest and professional online presence (for job search and digital footprint).

Two things that stood out to me from these readings:

  1. Social media provide increased opportunities and challenges to manage self-presentation.
  2. Self-presentation is moderated by the technological and social affordances of social media platforms, such as anonymity, persistence, and visibility. And, social media users respond to content provided by others in an effort to manage their online image

So far, I have made menus and submenus for POSIEL and for my phone blogs. The home page of my website (landing page) is where users can see the latest posts and they also have a shuffle option which displays a random post from my site.

Fixed sidebar menu for quick toggling

UH OH. The one problem that has been prevalent is the placement of my featured image. I have spoken to our TA about it as well. The featured image is supposed to be a thumbnail for the post and shouldn’t then be viewed in the body of my post, but the theme I chose displays it as a featured image as well as a body image for the post. This is the one drawback I have noticed in this theme. I have accepted this and now made better-looking featured images that I am ready to live with even if they are part of my blog’s body. In hopes of countering this, I am going to reach out to the creator of the theme and see if they can fix this (even in the theme’s free version).

I have created an Instagram account to broaden this website’s online presence. Find us @rannyspub on Instagram.

OnePlus 10 – An Affordable, Flagship “Super Phone”

The OnePlus 10 is a remarkable piece of technology that blends style, performance, and innovation very well. As a long-time OnePlus enthusiast, I had high expectations for their latest offering, and I can confidently say that the OnePlus 10 exceeded them in every way. My first phone was a OnePlus 3, then a OnePlus 8t and now OnePlus 10.

OnePlus has always excelled in design, and the OnePlus 10 is no exception. The phone’s sleek and slim profile, coupled with premium materials, gives it an elegant and timeless appeal. The glass back with a subtle gradient finish not only looks stunning but also feels comfortable in the hand. The placement of buttons and the tactile feedback are spot on, enhancing the overall user experience.

OnePlus 10 Pro Review - PhoneArena

The OnePlus 10’s AMOLED display is a visual treat. The colours on this phone are vivid, and the 120Hz refresh rate ensures smooth scrolling and exceptional responsiveness. Whether you’re streaming high-definition content, gaming, or just browsing the web, this display elevates the multimedia experience to a whole new level.

Talking about performance, the OnePlus 10 delivers blazing-fast performance with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and ample RAM. Apps load instantly, multitasking is a breeze, and the most demanding games run smoothly without a hitch. I have played PUBG: Battlegrounds, Alien Isolation and Need For Speed on this phone. All graphics run smoothly and the battery holds up very well. It has advanced features like Game Mode, Do Not Disturb and quiet gaming notifications that do not interrupt the gameplay. OxygenOS, with its minimalistic design and thoughtful features, enhances the overall user experience. The phone runs on the latest Android version, ensuring access to the latest software updates. As the phone comes packed with heavy hardware, a big screen and an AMOLED display, I have seen the OnePlus 10 heat up after a few games. Its cool-down speed is quite remarkable though.

In today’s world, the phone camera is used for basically all photography needs. So, talking about the camera setup on the OnePlus 10, I just have two words: VERY impressive. The primary sensor, along with ultra-wide and macro lenses, captures sharp and vibrant images. Low-light performance is outstanding, thanks to advanced computational photography techniques. The video recording capabilities, including 8K recording, are a delight for content creators.

The battery life on the OnePlus 10 is solid, easily lasting a full day with moderate usage. With Warp Charge technology, you can quickly recharge the device, getting a significant boost in just a short charging session. I have charged my phone from 0-100% in 33 minutes and lasts me all day- which is very, very impressive and convenient.

Colour options for OnePlus 10

Features like excellent 5G connectivity that ensures lightning-fast data speeds and a future-proofed experience, clean and bloatware-free OxygenOS software and customization options have led this phone to be the best piece of hardware I have purchased.

In conclusion, the OnePlus 10 is a top-tier smartphone that combines powerful performance, a stunning display, excellent camera capabilities, and a sleek design. OnePlus has consistently delivered quality, and this device is no exception. While the competition is fierce, the OnePlus 10 stands out as a strong contender and a testament to the brand’s commitment to excellence. If you’re looking for a flagship smartphone that offers the complete package, the OnePlus 10 should be at the top of your list.

This meme accurately describes the situation of me and many of my peers. I overheard a few people talking about how they suddenly lost their momentum of keeping up with two weekly posts. I could relate and found myself in the same boat as them as this semester’s workload just doubled out of nowhere. Where did 2 midterms, 1 project, weekly posts and three canvas quizzes suddenly come from? I had a good track record of doing all my posts on time but I think I missed one week of posts as there was no class and I just worked on my website instead of writing posts. I have caught up on my posts now and just have one content and one process post left for this week which I plan to do soon.

I think this mountain of work piling on was a wake-up call for me to not snooze and keep on grinding. The silver lining is that I did not get too behind on my posts and am still able to produce quality posts in time before the peer review and marking by the TA.

I am excited to write two of my posts soon after I do the readings as I really enjoy the area of publishing and website design in general.

The Motorola Moto G54: Redefining Affordable Excellence

In the ever-evolving world of smartphones, where new models are constantly released with newer features, the Motorola Moto G54 has made quite a name for itself. This is an affordable powerhouse which has garnered popularity among users worldwide due to its impressive features, sleek design, and budget-friendly price point. In this article, we will delve into the remarkable features of the Motorola Moto G54 and explore why it has become such a beloved choice for consumers, including being used by my dad.

One of the first things that struck us about the Motorola Moto G54 is its sleek and modern design. The phone features a large and vibrant display with a minimalistic design that allows for an immersive viewing experience. The build quality is exceptional, offering a sturdy feel in the hand, which is rare for a smartphone in its price range. With a choice of eye-catching colors and a well-thought-out design, the Moto G54 stands out in a sea of generic budget smartphones.

The Motorola Moto G54 comes with a generous 6.8-inch Full HD+ display. Another evident reason my dad thought of going with this phone is the large screen size which is perfect for media consumption, gaming, and browsing the web. With vibrant colours and sharp details, the device honestly offers an enjoyable visual experience that’s typically reserved for more expensive models. Whether you’re watching your favourite TV show or playing graphic-intensive games, the Moto G54’s display won’t disappoint.

Under the plastic, the Moto G54 is equipped with a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, ensuring smooth multitasking and lag-free performance. I have personally navigated through multiple apps, edited photos, and played graphics-intensive games on this phone, and it handled it all with ease. This processing power, combined with ample RAM and storage options, ensures that the device remains responsive, snappy and does not overheat.

Speaking about the battery, the Moto G54 comes with a robust battery life that can easily last a full day of heavy usage. You can count on the device to keep you connected and entertained without constantly searching for a charger. In the age of fast-paced lifestyles, a reliable battery is a crucial feature for a smartphone, and the Moto G54 delivers worry-free on this front.

Even though the camera was not a deciding factor when we purchased this phone, Motorola has equipped the phone with an impressive camera setup. The rear camera features a high-resolution sensor with multiple lenses, ensuring that the user can capture detailed and stunning photos. Whether it’s used for amateur photography or simply wanting to document one’s daily life, the Moto G54’s camera is up to the task. Plus, the device offers various camera modes and features to enhance your photography skills!

One of the standout features of the Moto G54 is its clean and bloatware-free Android experience. Motorola’s commitment to a full Android interface ensures a clutter-free and user-friendly environment. This not only enhances the overall user experience but also results in faster software updates.

Price-wise, the Moto G54’s competitive pricing is perhaps one of its most significant selling points. It offers a variety of premium features without the premium price tag, making it accessible to a wide range of consumers. In a generation where flagship smartphones can often cost a kidney, the Moto G54 provides an attractive alternative without sacrificing performance and functionality!

So, in our opinion, the Motorola Moto G54 has earned its popularity by combining an appealing design, stunning display, powerful performance, long-lasting battery life, and a competitive price point. For people looking for a smartphone that offers an impressive bang for their dollar, the Moto G54 is a top contender. Its success is proof of Motorola’s dedication to providing a quality smartphone experience at an affordable cost.

Welcome to my Process Post 2!

This post goes over the installation and setup work I did up to this week. This includes the decision I had to make, my rationales, and what’s next on my mind. In Week 2, I chose a techy theme that promised features I was looking forward to using when I saw them. After working with that theme for two days, I realized that most of the features I liked were paid and the free version could only let the user do so much. I spent the next three days trying different themes and then decided to stick with my current theme, Flash News. This was one of the most important decisions to make as the work I do hereon, is based on the tools I can use from this theme.

The reasons I chose this theme can be better explained from the following screenshot from their website.

I have boxed in red the features that attracted me to this theme- the advertising header in case I decide to monetize my website, the shuffle post button that displays a post at random, the “breaking news” and “posts list” section that updates itself when a new post is made. There are features on top of those as mentioned above that led me to choose this theme. 

This is how my website looks as of now. I have added 2 content posts and 2 process posts, added in the header an about me page, a drop-down menu for POSIEL 101, and a menu for some phones I want to write about.

2 Weeks Earlier…

This website is registered through Reclaim Hosting and is working on WordPress. This was quite a straightforward procedure where we chose a plan, then a domain, paid the money for registration and then installed WordPress. I used the following YouTube video for a step-by-step tutorial about the plans and the process.

How does what I have created so far relate to the vision board I made last week?

The vision board I had last week was me visual dumping all the ideas that came to my mind about the vision of my website. From what I had last week, I have found value, prupose, audience and accessibility to my website. I will continue to work on these and add more features and content in the following weeks.

Apple’s Newest Release, the iPhone 15: A Glimpse into the Future of Smartphones

In the ever-evolving world of smartphones, Apple has once again managed to fascinate the tech world with the release of the highly anticipated iPhone 15. This phone by the tech giant promises to be a game changer as it pushes the boundaries of innovation and technology. I have used the Apple iPhone 15 for two weeks and this was enough time to get captivated by what an engineering marvel it is.

Starting off with its design, the iPhone 15 has a revolutionary design, relieving the traditional rectangular form for a more ergonomic, curved, and sleek appearance. It felt like a natural extension of my hand as it was so comfortable to hold and operate. The phone is crafted from a combination of glass and titanium, making it not only robust but also visually stunning.

The display stood out to me the most as it has the OLED 2.0 display technology. With an enhanced resolution, colour accuracy, and brightness, this display gives an immersive visual experience like never before. OLED displays display deeper blacks, more vibrant colours, and a significantly improved viewing experience for multimedia content (games and videos).

iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will be available in five stunning new colors: black, blue, green, yellow, and pink (Apple, 2023)


Next, the camera system in the iPhone 15 has significant improvements compared to the iPhone 13 I used. The rear camera setup includes a 108-megapixel primary sensor, allowing for stunningly detailed photos and 8K video recording. Additionally, the phone offers up to 10x optical zoom for those long-distance shots. Low-light photography is also taken to the next level with improved night mode capabilities.

Apple teased the iPhone 15 by revealing its A15 Bionic chip, which surpasses the boundaries of processing power and efficiency. This chip not only enhances performance but also improves energy efficiency, resulting in longer battery life. It shows its power by giving a smooth and responsive experience whether it is used for gaming, multitasking, or using resource-intensive applications.

As security and privacy are one of the world’s leading concerns, Apple did not disappoint in prioritizing security and privacy. The iPhone 15 takes it up a notch with advanced biometric features. In addition to Face ID, the phone now incorporates an under-display fingerprint sensor for added convenience and security, which previous models did not offer.

Me, personally, I love having fast connections and full service, and I see the iPhone 15 is well-prepared to take advantage of the 5G networks. Not only does it have 5G connections, but the iOS 16 software the phone comes with is also the latest release of Apple’s operating system. It is packed with new features and improvements, it enhances the overall user experience.

As a future sustainability engineer, I had to see what steps Apple has taken to make the iPhone 15 more environmentally friendly. The phone is designed with a focus on recyclability, reduced carbon footprint, and increased use of renewable energy in its manufacturing process.


iPhone 15 features in a nutshell (The Verge, 2023)


In conclusion, Apple did not underdeliver in its commitment to innovation and excellence. With all the above features, I’m sure this phone will set new standards in the world of smartphones. Whether you’re a photography enthusiast, a power user, or simply someone who appreciates a well-crafted device, the iPhone 15 has something to offer everyone.
