Learn to love the command line (maybe) with cmder

Many PC users need to access the Windows command prompt occasionally, but its awkward interface means this is rarely a happy experience. Line editing works differently, you can’t use the clipboard as normal, even the window won’t resize properly: it’s no great surprise that most people avoid the console just as much as they can. You don’t have to put up with the standard Command Prompt, though. There are plenty of applications which can make your console life very much easier, and cmder is the perfect way to start trying them out. Download the 3MB archive, unzip it, and you’re… [Continue Reading]

Easily Find Out If An EXE File Is 32-Bit Or 64-Bit

Easily Find Out If An EXE File Is 32-Bit Or 64-Bit

June 04, 2013 at 05:30PM While to most end users, the difference between them isn’t exactly visible, there may be times when knowing whether the app you downloaded is 32-bit or 64-bit would be important, especially when it comes to drivers. At times, you might be trying to run a 64-bit file on a 32-bit computer and wondering why it isn’t working. If you quickly want to find that out for an app with a name that doesn’t make the distinction clear, it isn’t exactly possible just by looking at it or checking out its properties. Instead of going ahead with your best guesstimate in such a situation, why not be sure when you can? Simply open a Command Prompt window and get EXE 64bit Detector to find it out for you. The lightweight application is especially designed to ascertain the architecture of valid PE – portable executable – files, including EXE, OCX and DLL. Usage details & screenshots after the break.You can download the program…

Check if Any Web Browser is Up to Date Using SurfPatrol

How to Add more USB Ports to Your Computer

How to Add more USB Ports to Your Computer

May 15, 2013 at 02:36PM Today almost any external gadget relies on a conventional USB port to perform a given task. Whether we’re talking about smartphones, tablets, laptop lamps, cooling pads, computer mice, keyboards or any other device, it takes one USB plug to power or synchronize the monster. The bad part, as you already presume, is the fact that any host device, be it a conventional desktop computer, a laptop or a Mac, has a limited number of USB slots.Usually, that USB limit is not so friendly. Even though conventional desktop PCs come with a sufficient number of ports for a casual user, in most cases ranging from four to six, laptops or notebooks seem to have clear disadvantages. In order to preserve space so that the end product becomes smaller and more portable, some manufacturers have come up with the brilliant idea of reducing the USB ports number to three or, in some cases, just two. My HP, for example, only has three.Adding mo…

How to Take Good Photos in Bad Lighting

How to Take Good Photos in Bad Lighting

May 25, 2013 at 07:22PM Digital photography is simple when you have the perfect conditions and a lot of light to work with. Sadly, conditions aren’t always as we would like them to be, so it’s essential to work with as much light as possible to avoid being disappointed. The quality of a photographer can be seen from the way he knows to use the camera and by creating his own, adequate conditions to take photos, even in low light situations.Low-light conditions usually interfere with our photos in so high percentages that even seasoned smartphone manufacturers, like HTC and Nokia, give a special attention to the camera, preparing it for these kinds of environments. When the camera does not help, we can. In the following paragraphs, we are going to discuss and present the best practices on how to take good photos in bad lighting.Taking photos in low-light situationsMany professional photographers know that the ideal time of the day to take photos…

Learn Languages Via Subtitles While Watching Movies With LaMP

Learn Languages Via Subtitles While Watching Movies With LaMP

June 05, 2013 at 07:30PM A really great way to get good at a foreign language is to watch films that have subtitles in the language you’re learning; this allows you to correlate what you hear with definite, discrete words, and thus enhance your pronunciation. LaMP or Lingual Media Player is a Windows program that can play any film you load into it while reading its SRT (subtitles) file that you have stored on your computer. You can, in fact, have LaMP read two subtitles files simultaneously; one of the language you’re learning, and the other of your native tongue, so you always know what’s going on. What’s more, if you’re suspicious of a potential translating mistake, you can confirm it instantly, using the onboard translation service that’s hooked up with Microsoft Bing and Google Translate. Fascinating! Or should I say 迷人 instead?LaMP has a pretty straightforward user interface; most users will require no additional inf…

Curata is A Web based RSS Reader With Keyword Filters

Curata is A Web based RSS Reader With Keyword Filters

June 05, 2013 at 07:24PM I have been an ardent fan of Google reader since the last few years. Sadly, I switched to Feedly a couple of months back, after Google announced the retirement of Google Reader. There are different ways to filter blog posts and stories in Google Reader. You can use Yahoo Pipes, Feedrinse or even an IFTTT recipe to do amazing things but since Google Reader is not part of the equation anymore, all those tricks aer of no use now.I have used almost every possible RSS reader, both desktop and web based, but the one thing I have always missed is the ability to filter feeds by keywords. You don’t want to read everything, there has to be a smarter way which would allow you to skip unnecessary stories and keep your feed reader in control. You don’t necessarily want to unsubscribe from a source, all you need is to ignore stories and items that have specific words in the title of the blog post.Fact of the matter is …

Microsoft’s Project Siena: Windows 8 app development for (almost) all

Microsoft has released Project Siena, a Windows 8 app which allows anyone to create Windows 8 apps, no programming skills required. Building the interface is as simple as placing, moving and resizing assorted objects on your page: images, videos, buttons, lists, checkboxes, whatever you need. You can then link your visuals to data sources: RSS feeds, an Excel file, SharePoint, Azure services and more. Next comes the task of making sure the app works as you expect, deciding what happens when the scroll bar moves, the button is clicked, and so on. And once you’ve finished you can use the… [Continue Reading]

Make Movies Straight From a Smartphone/Tablet

May 29, 2013 at 09:32PM One thing is clear, phones and tablets don’t represent the best devices to shoot movies, they are used either because they are always in your pocket or because of directorial choices. Nowadays, the market is flooded with cheap video cameras that can surely beat the specifications of a simple phone or tablet.Even though the quality is not so great, the best advantage of using phones or tablets to shoot videos instead of professional cameras is portability, and the possibility to add effects, edit and combine different movies directly on the device from which they were taken. With those in mind, we will present some gear and applications that will help you shoot a film in better conditions.Make movies with your phone or tabletCreating a movie with a portable device it’s something that encountered a lot of skepticism until the South Korean filmmaker Park Chan-Wook made “Night Fishing”, a movie captured with an iPhone…

The Browser War on Android is On

The Browser War on Android is On

June 01, 2013 at 01:01AM The Android web browser market is as competitive right now as it ever has been. Every major player is trying to get their noses ahead and gain that little advantage over the rivals to become the undisputed king of browsers in the Android world.With Opera and Firefox recently upgrading their browsers to give a visual overhaul and facelift, the Go Launcher dev. team entering the competition with their Next Browser, and the likes of Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox well established players, the race to mobile browser dominance seems far from over.In fact, it looks like the competition has just got that little bit stiffer and interesting. A typical user normally would have two browsers on his Android smartphone — the default browser and a suitable alternate one to it. With so many browsers out there, the task to cherry pick one can be extremely challenging. To help you make a good choice, we put some of the best browsers on the …
