Use your PC or Tablet to send SMS through your Android phone with MightyText

Ever got into such situation that you are using PC or your lovely tablet and just then you need to send a text, but your mobile is fairly away from the reach of your hand. 

This situation forces you to overcome your laziness. Also even this is not the situation then also you may not like to type long text messages on your tiny phone's screen.

Remember those days when Nokia's symbian phones allows you to send you text messages through Nokia PC suite on your PC. But today there is hardly anyone using those symbian phones in this Android age.

Orkut is still live at the end of year 2013

2013, the year when many Internet services retired. Google Reader, iGoogle, Winamp and the you even don't remember, Altavista. 

But many will be cursing Google for shutting down Google Reader and iGoogle. And why not, Google shut them even when they are fairly popular and Orkut which is as quiet as graveyard, is still live.

However, it is not that Orkut which used to be heart and soul of internet users.  Most of its part is redirecting to Google+, BUT IF someone want to use it (a very very rare case) can use it.

Why use SnapChat when there are already 100s of Photo Sharing platforms

You may also be thinking like this same as me. And its not surprising. Because the Facebook is so dominant in India that people don't want to try anything else. To be precise,  friend are  not on other platforms to make them interesting.

Okay, Now I should come to the topic. What is difference between facebook and SnapChat. Both can share photos privately, as well as publicly on the news feed. Also facebook has much more features than SnapChat. 

You may be thinking that facebook is winning here. Ofcourse, when it comes to complete social networking, there is no competition to facebook right now. 

"But SnapChat is different from classic social networking "

Copy by Barracuda (Copy.Com) Review [Android]

Copy is a new entry in cloud service list launched in March 2013. Since it is new it is providing great offers to make buzz. As they are yet to make a mark in this field. Barracuda is known for its security related services and now they are try their hands in this field too.

They are offering 15 GB for new users, and also you can refer your friends to earn 5 GB per user. And to make referral interesting they are also giving 5GB extra to your friends if they SignUp from your link. It means your friend will directly start from 20 GB space. If you too want start directly from 20 GB you can use my referral link given at the end of this post, by using that you will get 5 GB extra as well me which is not a bad deal.

Now lets come to service. I compared it with Dropbox because I found it more similar to it. Available for almost all platforms, like Windows, Linux, Mac, Android and iOS. Windows Phone version is also coming soon.

Here I am reviewing its Android app. The interface of very simple reminds you of Dropbox. There is a Photocopy feature which can be enabled in setting which do exactly what Dropbox's camera upload does. However Dropbox 's camera upload feature never worked for me on 2G connection, it just keeps waiting for faster connection while PhotoCopy worked for me smoothly. UPDATE: Dropbox latest update fixed the issue

You can view photos within the app as well as stream uploaded video with the help of any video streaming application, but this feature doesn't works with flv videos. 

There is also option for PIN lock just like Dropbox, for extra security.
You can share files either privately or publicly.
One good feature is that if you share a file with "edit and sync" right the storage will be shared. Means if you share a 4 GB file to four users, each user will contribute their 1 GB, by this way you can save space while collaborative working.
One very irritating missing feature is that there is no option to make a file offline, means you have too manually download and update your files in your every devices. But I think this feature will come soon.

Web version works fine in my dolphin browser in android. It is also with inbuilt photo and video viewer.

But, as the service is new, everything doesn't works smoothly. Sometimes it freezes and crashes. However they are very quietly developing it with the help of Google+ community "Copy for android - beta channel". Means they could become a big giant in future. 

So my idea is to collect as much space you can right now, use my referral link to get extra 5 GB.
Who knows that in future when they become stable they will reduce space for new users just like Box.net and SkyDrive.

Till then you should trust Dropbox for your important files. If you don't have Dropbox account you can SignUp with this link to get 500mb extra.

How to Share Office Word Documents to other Computers without loosing fonts and formatting

In this image you can see that how unavailability of a font can create meaningless words.
This is the case of different scripts. But in case of same scripts, it is possible that the font you was using was slightly narrow or wide and when you see the same documents in other computer and if the font in that computer was of normal size then your either your word will become oversized or your paper, resulting in formatting problems. Then you have to resize all the fonts to adjust if you intended to print that document,otherwise for other users it will be difficult for them to read that. Also if you have used any designer font then too all your designs will be lost.

To Avoid this you need to pack all the fonts used in documents with the document in a zip file which is a tough task. To do this easily

Why I hate delete confirmation Dialog Box but Still afraid to disable it

Every time you delete a file in windows , you will be asked that are you sure to move this file to recycle bin.
Delete Confirmation Dailog box

Some time this is very irritating. Imagine you are
notebook (I mostly use notebook) and by using touch-pad you select few files to delete and accidentally you missed the selection (I am not that comfortable with touch-pad ).
So I disabled this (I will mention how to do this, further). Now I can simply press delete button and file moved to recycle bin. I can do it one by one because just pressing delete button is easier than pressing delete and then selecting yes on the dialog box.
And if any file got deleted accidentally , it is in recycle bin :) .
But there is problem.

Open "Internet Explorer Only" Pages in Chrome or Firefox

Many times you may surfed pages which demands you to open it in IE, which is very hectic job.
Hardly any one likes to use Internet Explorer. The problem is more worse when you are using non-windows OS.
Even if you are using windows OS, you have to open it repeat the same process again to reach that page again (if the page you are looking for is login only). Also you loose all the cryptonian functionality of Chrome and firefox.
Here is an AddOn/Extension for these browser  which can render IE pages in your favorite (chrome or firefox) browser.

Stop spreading of Virus through USB Flash Drive [Immunize USB]

In my last post I told you about how to delete any file forcibly. But sometimes these methods doesn't works when your computer is already infected and you want to delete any unwanted malware file in USB Drives.
Because even when you delete it, virus in your computer will again create it. And when you plug it in another computer, that computer will also get infected.
The best way to prevent such infection to have a drive with write protecting button. And drive should set to be write protected while using it in a public computer. But what if your drive accidently get infected anyway or your drive don't have a write protect button?

If you are reading this post, security keypad lock feature of Nokia S40 phones may have been known to you (If not then ask any Nokia phone user).

Nokia 2700 classic But do you know that there is security hole in some of S40 phones (example: 2690 , 2700c, 2730c etc.) when you dial any emergency number (you can dial emergency numbers like 112 and 911 even while keypad is locked ) the key symbol on top right corner of phone's screen disappears means the phone is unlocked (disconnect immediately as you shouldn't disturb emergency numbers).
