We all know that Motorola’s Android 3.0 Honeycomb based powerhouse that we call Xoom is already very powerful, and as the Android based tablets go these days – this is the best you can get at this time.

Windows 7 Taskbar Big Preview  2

Windows 7 was released with many great new features. Most of these fall in to the visual eye candy and refinements to the GUI to have a smoother experience for it’s users as compared to the Windows Vista. In particular, Windows 7 taskbar got a big bump in terms of new functionality.

VLC Player

VLC media player is one of the most popular media players at least on the Windows OS. And this is for a good reason – it allows to playback virtually unlimited number of audio/video formats smoothly, and all of that without even installing a single codec! Apart from that it also supports many advanced features (streaming comes to mind). As for the iOS world this popular player was introduced first in the Apple App Store as a free download. Unfortunately, for the avid users this was removed by Apple from App Store shortly afterwards because of the copyright restrictions. After Read More >


Recently released Internet Explorer by Microsoft is really a strong web browser which is a marked improvement over the previous Internet Explorer 8 in every imaginable way. However, one thing that I am sure many people might have noticed is the lack of a real-time spell checker. This is somewhat of disappointment for the people that were expecting it to be coming in the latest incarnation of this popular Microsoft browser. But fortunately for us this limitation can eliminated by using a free real-time spell checking tool called Speckie that is designed specifically for the Internet Explorer and it works Read More >

By default in Firefox 4 the behavior of the browser has changed a bit in the sense that when you quite, it no longer prompts you to save currently open tabs as it did in Firefox 3.x. You can bring back this behavior by changing a single preference in about:config in Firefox. So just launch the URL about:config and filter the results on the search bar on the browser.showQuitWarning. Then in the window double click on this to enable (true) the  browser.showQuitWarning property. Now even if you have setup the Firefox in preferences to start with a home page or Read More >


If you have upgraded to the iOS 4.3 on your iPhone 3G/3GS or iPod Touch then you might have noticed somewhat faster battery drain. If this happened to you then this is most probably because of the new Ping service introduced starting from the iTunes 10 – a social music discovery service. For most of the users chances are that they are not using it anyway. It is one of the biggest culprit for the rapid battery drainage on the iOS 4.3. So you should disable it if you are not using it. For that go the Settings –> General Read More >


While the primary purpose of any mobile phone is to receive calls obviously (in addition to initiating a call to some other phone number). But there are cases where you might not want to receive calls from some specific (undesired) person. It may also happen that you are receiving annoying calls from people that you don’t want to attend. In these scenarios, it is of course highly desirable to have the functionality to block calls from that specific person (or a group of uninteresting annoying people). If you are using iPhone and have it jailbroken then you can do it Read More >
