April 27, 2013 at 02:42PM Do you know something about May ? According to the early Roman calendar, May was the third month. Later, the ancient Romans used january 1 for the beginning of their year, and May became the fifth month. May has always had 31 days.Several stories are passed around to show how the month of May was named.

Open Word, Excel & PowerPoint Files In Chrome With Office Viewer

Open Word, Excel & PowerPoint Files In Chrome With Office Viewer

April 26, 2013 at 05:30PM Chrome can open a lot of different files without the need to install any extra plugins, extensions, or scripts. In fact, many modern browsers can open some of the common file types that are used everyday including media files in MP3 and MP4 format, and PDF documents. Granted that browsers aren’t the best file viewers for multimedia files, they are still great for quick previews or when you don’t have your preferred app available. The one file format, or rather the group of file formats that browsers don’t normally support by default are Microsoft Office documents, presentations, spreadsheets et al. If you don’t have Office installed on your PC or Mac, you can turn to Google Drive’s web version or services like Box and Jumpshare that offer online file previews in order to view these files. Chrome users on the Beta channel now have another option. Google has released a new extension called C…

Search & Play Spotify, YouTube & SoundCloud Music From One Place With TuneCrawl

April 06, 2013 at 04:30PM Pandora, Spotify, YouTube, and SoundCloud are some of the common services I use when I need to listen to music. Each one offers something unique based on how I want to listen to music.

Share Self-Destructing Media Or Text Messages Anywhere With ReadOnce

Share Self-Destructing Media Or Text Messages Anywhere With ReadOnce

April 05, 2013 at 07:26PM There seems to be quite a market for self-destructing messages; popular apps like Snapchat and Facebook’s Poke are proof that people would like to say something and leave behind no trace that they ever said it. Jokes aside, if you’re using a smartphone, it is  likely that there is an app available for sending these self destructing messages. However, there are few options for doing the same from your PC, and the few that do exist support only plain text messages and have an unappealing interface. ReadOnce is a web service that lets you send self destructing messages. These messages can be plain text, images, audio clips, or videos. You can select how long the messages will be visible up to a maximum time limit of 59 seconds. The time can be customized down to the millisecond. The great thing about ReadOnce – apart from the different message formats – is that the message is only deleted fro…

Quickly Open Windows Command Prompt As Administrator In Current Path

April 05, 2013 at 06:20PM You may have noticed that when executing the Command Prompt Utility – usually shortened to cmd – from Start Screen or Start Menu, it opens up in your user folder when run it as normal, and in the System32 folder when launched as Administrator. This can be fairly annoying if you simply want to open another CMD window in your current path, the reason being you then have to enter a few ‘cd’ commands to navigate to your desired directory. ELE from WinAero is a fantastic application that can save you from this hassle. This lightweight portable application lets you launch a new elevated Command Prompt window i.e. with Administrator privileges right in your current selected folder path. Lets find out how it works.You can execute ELE using the ele.exe file that comes in the download package.
