Bring classic Start back in windows 8


hello guys ,
if  you are  missing the classic Start Menu button in Windows 8, there are  many 3rd party alternatives available that will put a start menu on your taskbar and this guide will help you pick the best one for you !

If the only reason that you are not Upgrading to Windows 8, is because it does not have a classic ,mouse friendly ,start menu then, you can install a third party tool for that , which will put the Start Menu into your Windows 8 taskbar in desktop mode.That said, if you are new to Windows 8,i suggest that you play around with the system for some time and you will not feel the need for a start menu especially if you , like me , have a desktop list in your taskbar

Pc health




Today I learnt a very valuable lesson ,
That people don't care about the health of their system as long as it does what they want to do,
but what they do not realise is that, there will come such a time when their computers wear down due to no attention payed to it's health , then ,when their systems become completely unusable ,They will come running to Techies like me or call tech-support guys

Doctor who ftw ?!

so ,
it's been a few  busy days for me , i had my exams and i decided to make a blog full of doctor who stuff ,


Doctor Who is a British science fiction television programme produced by the BBC. The programme depicts the adventures of a Time Lord—a time travellinghumanoidalien known as the Doctor. He explores the universe in his 'TARDIS', a sentient,telepathic time-and-space-travel machine that flies through the time vortex. -wikipedia

    That's because that's my new thing , and while i have seen all the new episodes right now , i am waiting for the Christmas special and the new episodes next year anxiously , so for now , I am more focused on the classic who , which is essentially the original series that was aired back in the days of black and white tv .

yes ,you can notice that the scenes that need to be out of this world are made of things in miniature and
 then filmed with zoom to make the objects feel real-ish , but  it's still cool , explains all the history  ...
if you are interested in watching doctor who , at least the new series , i would not spoil it for you but remember , once you get in there's no coming back , alons-y?!

let me just mention that doctor who is the best thing that has happened to me recently , one fine addition to my Geeky lifestyle :)

if you want to read up more on this topic you can always ask Me in the Comments or Google :)
that's it for now , like us on facebook , comment and share !

iPad Mini vs. Nexus 7: Which is better



Have a look at this a very fine post comparing apple  ipad mini and google's nexus 7 tablet devices ,
iPad Mini vs. Nexus 7: Don't sound the death gong yet .this post really stands out from the rest because it does not have any form of fanboyism over there just plain old comparison ...



iPad Mini vs. Nexus 7" Apple, for example, devoted ample energy to pointing out how its new iPad Mini has a larger screen than Google's Nexus 7 -- and yep, it sure does. The "7.9-inch" figure listed for the iPad Mini's screen can tell you that. You know what else has a larger screen than the Nexus 7? Every other tablet with a screen size greater than 7 inches. A larger screen on a smaller tablet is not inherently better; the whole point of the smaller tablet is that, you know, it's smaller. By design. " 

very good point if you think about it , i mean a larger screen is good for doing many things but a smaller device has to be small enough , and apple has done that by  keeping the bezel less , Personally i like that approach  it gives me more screen real estate to play with

Test unknown software ,securely



Hello there ,
if you are anything like me you try out any software that someone names to you , but while doing that you are exposing yourself to the potential of that software containing malware , although you might have anti-malware software installed  it is always a possibility that it might not detect the malware , so the advice ,"dont run any unknown software on your system"  was born. but i would say that it is a form of Escapism , why should i refrain from testing out a potentially useful piece of code ? That's right you should not , you can use a technique called "Sandboxing" to test software securely on your pc ,  read on to find out how...

Facebook security - real or virtual ?



yo guys,
In the world of today where Facebook is becoming more and more synonymous with internet or social networking , at the very least ,it has become the hub of most all of our social connections and so ,it is not surprising that many scammers  and people with a twisted sense of  'Fun' will try to get access to your account , this is either to misuse  your personal information , or to block your own access to your account and then watch as you try relentlessly to get in your own account .

Undelete the files!Bring back my stuff!

yo guys ,
    we all know that ,when you delete a file (on windows ) it goes to that dustbin thingy known as the recycle bin .so, if by accident you delete a file you can recover it from there , but  ,in certain scenarios, this is not possible for example what if you  used "Shift+delete" short-cut , which means that it will bypass the recycle bin and get deleted for good ? or if you deleted a picture on your smartphone or camera ? in these cases, the deleted file will not be available in  recycle bin.
what to do then ?

   well , do not panic if you just deleted the file and did not do much else on the computer yet the file might still be recoverable . first we have to see the concept behind it & how is it possible? read on further  beyond the break  .
