By now most of you already know about the latest version of the Android mobile OS by Google which is Ice Cream Sandwich. It comes loaded on the new Google branded Galaxy Nexus and is in fact one of the key selling point of this device. Now since the source code for the ICS has already been released so manufacturers are hard at work to port it to at least their latest devices. Although, as we reported in an article published today that despite active development don’t expect to witness official update before the first quarter of 2012. Although unofficial Read More >

In the recent builds Flash, we have witnessed a notable performance improvement in particular related to the hardware acceleration. But despite these performance improvements flash performance can be quite taxing for the older hardware. These older PCs usually struggle to play many flash games, applications built in flash and even many flash heavy sites cause trouble when loaded on low end systems. There is really not much we can do expect to upgrade the hardware i.e. processor, RAM or the entire PC. However, if you are using the Firefox to play the flash games/apps or browsing the flash heavy websites Read More >

Mozilla has recently released the Firefox 8.0 final version and the number of changes as compared to the previous version are minimal at best. One of highly demanded features that Firefox users have been asking for a long time is the official support for 64-bit builds of the Firefox. Unfortunately, we didn’t get it yet – not even with the recent release of the Firefox 8.0. Firefox 9.0 is not expected to get this 64-bit support either. It seems from some reports that Firefox 10 might be the release when Mozilla will finally add the support for 64-bit builds. Situation Read More >

Windows, to the average citizen of the globe, is the synonym for “operating system”. Windows had, since its debut in 1984, established itself as a trend setter in the technological field. Widows Vista that was released towards the closing of 2006 remains to be the only OS that failed to perform laudable, and Windows 7 (which is often dubbed as an upgraded version of Windows Vista) salvaged the brand. Apple Mac OS X Snow Leopard had offered stiff competition to Windows 7, and the former has been recorded to have received a better response. However, Windows is not one to Read More >

Setting appropriate privacy levels on multiple computers while syncing data on Dropbox can get quite complicated. Having been a Sys-admin myself for a lot of years, experience has taught me never to underestimate the chance of a privacy breach when it comes to data. Even by protecting important ‘eyes only’ information by placing it on a system that isn’t connected to the network, people tend to forget one basic fact- the system administrator is all powerful! It only makes sense therefore, to use flash drives to store important data and use it only when required. Resolving the crisis Dropbox Portable Read More >

After you format your PC to get rid of some stubborn virus or simply perform some major hardware modifications on your computer, a reinstall of your operating system is usually needed which requires you to re-enter the product activation key. However, due to the ongoing Microsoft Genuine Software Initiative to control piracy, the number of times you can enter the key has been limited to 10. This is done in order to forestall any fraudulent installations. Now this can be a serious cause of despair for those who have purchased genuine Windows Vista or Windows 7 and require frequent formats. Read More >
