Here we give you a How-to on using your flash mass storage devices like pen Drives, SD cards as RAM in Windows XP, 7 or Windows 8.

In order to use flash mass storage devices such as Pen Drive, memory card, external hard drive, etc. as RAM in Windows we can follow the following steps.

For using Pen Drive as RAM in Windows 7/8 or Windows 8.1

1. Insert Pen Drive which has to be used as RAM into USB port of your PC or LAPTOP

2 .Click start button and go to my computer.

3 .Select your Pen Drive there and press right button.

4 .Select format option and then format the device.

Select format option and then format the device.

5. Now again select Pen Drive and press right button. Then click on properties.

6. Select Ready Boost tab and then click on use on this device.

Suppose you want to listen to music for 1 hour, and computer turns off without your intervention.,Then have a look!
We all know how shutdown our computer. But have ever thought of computer turning off itself. Have you heard of computer shutdown automatically when an intruder tries to sign in, well it’s true and it can be done with some simple steps.Most of you don’t know about command prompt but all of you should be familiar with the windows Run command window. You can open run using (win key + R)Next step is to type in the following command.shutdown.exe –s –t (time in seconds)

Depending on the time you set you can use this for various purposes.

1. USING YOUR COMPUTER FOR A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME AND COMPUTER SHUTDOWN AUTOMATICALLY.

Suppose you want to listen to music for 1 hour, and computer turns off without your intervention. Set the ‘time in seconds’ value as: 3600 as shown

A message will appear saying that the computer will turn off in 1 hour.

Note: the appearance of the message is different in windows xp, windows vista, windows 7 and windows 8.

Now you can play your playlist for exactly 1 hour.

Note: depending on your use like Bluetooth file transfer, file copying, downloading software etc. you can set your on time, in seconds.

2. PREVENTING UNAUTHORISED ACCESS TO YOUR PC

This is a more complicated process than previous one and we have to use another command using ‘shutdown.exe’ along with previous one.

In windows operating systems up to windows 7, you can see a ‘Startup’ folder in the all programs menu.(and of course in the new windows 8.1 customer preview)

Open the ‘startup’ folder in explorer and create a new short cut as shown.

And type the following command inside the box as shown.

Complete the procedure and save the shortcut.

Next step is to create an ‘anti shutdown’ command, create another shortcut in desktop using the above method and type the following command:

Shutdown.exe –a

And save the shortcut with different name and icon(you might know how to do it).

Now restart your system. You can see the system will show a message that says your system will shut down in 10 seconds and only you know the ‘anti shutdown’ shortcut. So an intruder can use your pc for 10 seconds only.

Note: if you are fast enough you can set the time as 5 seconds but don’t set the time as 0 seconds.

Can you imagine a MP3 players will substitutes our hand chains? Then there is no much waiting for that. CREATIVE making that breakthrough with introduction of their new MP3 player which wraps around our hand. It plays music with the help of Bluetooth wireless ear buds.You can see options like play, pause, fast forward, scroll and flip through songs on the outer surface of the MP3 bracelet. With slight variations this bracelet can also show a scrolling display having song or album photos. The main attraction to this MP3 player is that with the help of this, we can listen music anywhere and almost anonymously with the help of wireless Bluetooth ear buds. Other people will not get a chance to realize that you are listening to music, if we cover you bracelet by your sleeve. Another best thing that characterizes this MP3 player is no need of worry about the missing of MP3 player which strongly remains attached to your hand.
From the conceptual level we can’t imagine the occurrence of this potential MP3 player. However it is having some special reasons which make it guaranteed to sell. Wearable technology is the first feature out of them. It is very simple and does not make you a feel of spaced out runway model. This wearable device reduces our hand works and ear buds helps us to listen the music without the use of wires or cords. There is funny thing on the usage of this MP3 player is that it be used to listen the music in front of your boss with no fear. It can also be used while you are in driving. Its impressive design makes it suitable to many situations.
You may be confusing on how the Bracelet MP3 player finds a source for its charging. But the exciting thing is that it can be charged with the help of your heartbeat. There is no release of this technology from creative up to here. The most expectation about this is use of piezoelectric power or the power of vibration. This method of charging will increase the durability of the battery. For charging a device, power produced by piezoelectricity is enough but playing sound consumes much power.

As a concept the creative bracelet MP3 player is a fantastic one among other MP3 players that ever released up to here. But there is a serious problem on the cost of this device. We can’t afford the cost of bracelet MP3 player which shows satisfactory performance. There are some limitations on Bluetooth sound quality such as hissing or skipping sound. The cost is so high to overcome this and it expects around $300 or more at starting point. Most of the companies may get impressed from this technology, but probably they will not ready to take a chance on building bracelet MP3 player which is more risk at its cost level. However we can expect this bracelet MP3 player within near future.

It is more exciting and funny that the cases for apple’s new iPhones are capturing the attraction of viewers without waiting for their announcement of launching.
The cases are available with name ‘iphone 5S/5C’ mainly of Spigen’s Tough Armor and Neo Hybrid.

The days are going with at least one leaked image of an iphone 5S or 5C part and they are providing easiest ways for accessory makers so that they can also bring most suitable case for iphone 5S/5C

At the time of it’s launching. Some of them are ready to release their cases ahead of apple’s announcement.

We may wonder when looking the cases of Neo hybrid from spigen SPG’s for iphone. The case is made up of TPU skin and polycarbonate bumper. It is not seems to be too flashily. But it offers more protections with many features which makes it a good choice. It looks like rearranged slim Armor and gives more color options with three packed in home button stickers.

Before installation of Neo Hybrid, we should separate the plastic and rubber layers. It is thus helps to rubber easily slips on, and then the frame snaps into place. If the installation is done with both plastic and rubber layer held together then they may split apart during installation process. After installation it

Will not give any chance to viewers to think that they are distinct pieces. Once installed it fit with phone with very little bulk. By seeing we can feel it as 1or 2 millimeter thinner than slim armor.

The main key features spigen SPG are the port and button protection. Regarding on button protection we can find that there is some additions over the sleep/wake and volume buttons without reducing their tactility. Buttons are covered with metalized coating and makes controls more easily and sensitively with better protection. There is an attractive exposing of ringer switch. While looking for ports, we can find separate openings for headphone port and lightning port at the bottom edge with accommodation of third party plugs and also having smaller pill shaped holes for the speaker and microphone. The presence of lip around the screen adds its beauty.

With all covering it may not be a fanciest one, but it acts as better choice with its features. It is having rubber and plastic layers and these offers better protection of iPhone’s daily usage and unintentional abuse. The case is more suitable with iphone when it is carrying inside the pocket. You may feel the case is not affordable when looking its price (about $5) with no screen protection. But it is preferable for those who are looking for minimal design.

However the cases for iphone 5S is almost similar to iphone 5 exception of flash opening on the back.The key point that expecting with iphone 5S is the presence of dual LED’s for flash system. So cases should be manufactured with beveled flash opening edges so that the new iphone 5S can be operate without difficulty. Thus the demands for cases for iphone 5S/5C are also increasing. As a result case- makers are competing in market. Now the remaining thing is only the official announcement from Apple. Let us hopefully wait for the announcement and the team who will successfully suite the iphone 5S/5C with its requirements.

Design

It is about 3’’and may be small when comparing to a full touch screen phone. It is having a QVGA capacitive display with a resolution of 240×320 in below and an earpiece on the top.
On the top, it includes 2mm micro USB port for charging and there is also a 3.5mm headphone jack. You can see volume key as well as a power key on the right side which can be used for locking/unlocking the screen but no keys on left and bottom side of the phone.

The oval stud island lying on the bottom of the back cover gives a resting surface for your fingers and it also acts as a speaker hole. Nokia Asha 501 has a best quality of hardware that comes from Nokia series till now.

Connectivity

Nokia Asha 501 offers all the basic features such as Bluetooth, WIFI and FM Radio coverd.etc. But we can notice the absence of a true GPS chip. It welcomes us to a rich internet experience through Nokia Xpress browser under the limitations of the smaller screen and less RAM. There is no 3G connectivity on Asha 501 and thus it saves the unwanted wastage of resources. We can expect a 3G compactable device in upcoming Asha 5xx series.
The asha 501 also offers an excellent Bluetooth sharing with slam via Bluetooth from nokia. Instead of searching about processors we can enjoy the asha 501 with it’s speed and responsiveness. In terms of hardware point of view it shows all the characteristics of nokia.

Software

The nokia Asha 501 includes Ash touch OS which is of latest version of Nokia’s S40. It modifies the touch plat form of Ash 3xx series by adopting best of both from MeeGo and Windows phone with a smooth and cool experience

Home Screens

Nokia Ash 501 takes the advantage of Windows phone by the use of multiple home screens. They are Fast Lane and the App Grid. By simply swapping from either of these home screens we can simply utilize them.

Swipe Experience 

Nokia Ash 501 is mainly characterized by its swipe experience. We can see a single button on the bottom of the screen. It serves as sequential back key. Other than this, we can access all the functions through the smooth swipe.

Let’s point out some important swipe gestures from Nokia Ash 501-

  • Swipe from the top of the shows some important shortcuts for Bluetooth, WIFI, Packet Data, And silent mode
  • Swipe from the bottom of the display shows the options menu for the apps which is currently used.
  • Swipe from the right or left side of the screens changes current app to home screen.

Multimedia

We can find all the features of multimedia including the gallery camera, Music player, Video player and FM Radio in Nokia Ash 501. Its gallery provides a direct way of sharing of photos to social networks such as Facebook, twitter.

Nokia Xpress Browser –

Another important feature of Nokia Ash 501 is its Nokia Xpress Browser. It enables to get thing fast on the phone by compressing data on server side and thus helps to earn about 90% on the charges of Packet Data

Camera

When comparing with expensive smart phones, camera features of Nokia Ash 501 may not be sufficient. But considering with its price, Nokia Ash 501 shows comparatively better camera performance than others.

Battery

You may be surprised by seeing battery performance of Nokia Ash 501. It is having a 1200 mAh battery which gives active use of 17 hours, standby of 48 days and music play back of 56 hours. If you are looking for long better batter life, there is no option other than Nokia Ash 501 with satisfactory performance.

Nokia Asha 501 Cons

• Mediocre Display
• No 3G
• No Front Facing Camera
• No LED Flash

Final Thought

The Nokia Ash 501 is an excellent choice at its lower cost as it offers better performance and high quality experience. We can’t find another option at this lower price range. It does not look like a lower end phone since it is incorporated with best qualities of hardware from Nokia series. Better battery performance and smooth swipe experience makes it more preferable. With all these exciting features, we suggest Nokia Ash 501 to people who expecting a satisfactory performance of a touch screen phone at lower price.

If you are using windows 8 or higher, this article is for you. Don't miss it.

It is said that Windows 8 have rectified its predecessor’s negative’s. But although it’s said so after installation of windows 8 we can feel a decrease in internet speed.
Windows 8 reserves about 80% of its internet speed for ‘Metro Apps’. As a result internet speed is decreased. There are mainly 2 methods which can be used to get your old internet speed. Both this methods works fine. Both these 2 methods can be clubbed for good result.

Method1:

By limiting the system application’s internet usage.
Step1: Go to RUN command box (by pressing windows key + R) and type GPEDIT.MSC on the RUN command box then click ok.

Step2: The step1 will take you to “Local Group Policy Editor “. At the left side of the appearing window you can see a drop down list.

Step3: Then click Administrative Templates -> Network -> QOS Packet Scheduler. 

Step4: After doing step3 you will get a list of setting consisting of
-Limit reserved bandwidth.
-Limit outstanding packets.
-DSCP value of non- conforming packets.
-DSCP value of conforming packets.
-Layer-2 priority value.
-Set timer resolution.
Among this select “Limit reserved bandwidth”.

Step5: Now a window will appear in that click on Enable which will not be configured previously and change the bandwidth limit to 50% and save it.
Step6: Restart your pc/laptop and see the magic! 😀
#Note: Limiting the Bandwidth to 50% sometimes will result in malfunction of metro applications.

Method2:

Internet speed can be increased by removing unwanted Applications
Step1: Go to start menu (windows key) then right click on the applications you don’t want to use from the start menu e.g.: Maps, News, Weather, People, and Messaging etc.
Step2: Now at the bottom part of your window you will see a menu on that click “Turn Live Tile Off “. By doing so the unused applications selected on step1 will stop starting automatically when it is connected to Internet.

You can turn on your tile as follows:

Step1: Go to start menu (windows key) right click the apps you want to turn on again.
Step2: At the bottom of window you will again see a menu. On that click on “Turn Live Tile On “.

That’s it… Hope this trick for increasing Internet speed on windows 8 will be working fine for you.
