The next level of multitasking - floating browser flux!


   so have you ever have this situation that you are chatting with someone and you want to watch a video on YouTube but your android tablet will stop the video if you switch apps ? worry no more because i have an app that will change the way you use your tablet

    Floating apps are not a new thing there are many floating calculators and video players available in the android play store , there are even some other floating browsers , but none is as advanced and feature rich as "Floating browser flux! "  this browser not only allows you to create multiple floating windows over what ever it is that you are doing , it allows you to have bookmarks , take screenshots of webpages , hide in notifications  and the killer is ,  it supports flash ,on select devices anyways.

Now that, is awesome!

   you can download floating browser flux here , once downloaded it can be launched via your app drawer or by clicking a link and selecting floating browser in the options .and watch as it  takes your multitasking habits to the next level .

  I have been using floating browser for a while now and it seems to be a pretty good and stable browser , it does tend to use a lot of memory if you , like me , open 5 or 6 tabs at the same time  but otherwise it works just awesomely on my galaxy tab 2 which only has a dual core CPU and just 1 GB RAM.the app should work fine on phones but i am not sure how that will play out ... ciao!

if you want to read up more on this topic you can always ask Me in the Comments or Google :)

Analyzing the new Facebook graph search - geeky thoughts

       
         Since my exams just got over today I decided to procrastinate for the rest of the day  and which site better to do that than Facebook ? interestingly, as I opened Facebook I was greeted with a message that said " Explore the new graph search ".. and as any normal curious person would do I accepted the offer...

    The most immediate changes that I noticed were that now my notifications and messages buttons were on the right side of the screen and instead of Facebook logo and search bar there was just an icon and "search for people places and things" respectively , on further inspection I found out that the text was actually a pace holder that became the search box upon clicking and that the icon now took you to the home page just like the logo used to do ,but there still exists a home button on the right  which does not make sense to me .

Find stuff with just a picture - Reverse image search

        There are times when you have an image and want to search for similar images or perhaps even find the source website of that image , maybe find a higher resolution version . In such times you might want to use the image itself to search rather than keywords , which increases your chances of getting quality results
this type of search where you search for  similar images by supplying an image is called Reverse image search.

why i have (almost) moved on to Google plus -geeky thoughts


Facebook is the most popular social networking site out there at this moment , and it is pretty good too . It has a lots of features and is still relatively very easy to use (think orkut). But for me Facebook has recently become ,more of an annoyance , than a way to connect and interact  with the people (in my life?), that i wish to be in touch with .

how hot is your laptop ?


       Laptops , by design , do not have air circulation  as good as desktops can and as a result laptops tend to heat up a lot faster than a desktop computer. so it becomes vital at that point to make sure your laptop does not overheat , although the laptops that are made in the recent years will have a temperature sensor that will make sure that the temperature does not reach a point where the internals of your  laptop get damaged , it will instead crash your laptop  and you will lose all your work or gaming progress as games are very demanding on the processor and lead to generation of a lot of heat
