Windows 7 Editions: Windows 7 Professional

Windows 7 Editions: Windows 7 Professional

Windows 7 Professional is the second Windows 7 edition that we take a closer look at (after Windows 7 Home Premium yesterday). This edition is actually the equivalent to Windows Vista Business but Microsoft decided to rename it in this operating system. Some say they did so to make it easier for Windows XP Pro users to switch to Windows 7. The pricing between Windows 7 Home Premium and Windows 7 Professional is steep. You can currently get a so called Windows 7 Home Premium Family Pack...

Samsung Diva Phones Turn Up The Bling Factor

Samsung Diva Phones Turn Up The Bling Factor

Samsung put out on display two phones that have not been announced yet. And as one can expect, they got covered on the Internet. These phones flag off a whole new line of Samsung phones called the Diva. The first phone is a full touchscreen phone that has a 3” resistive touch display with a WQVGA resolution. It is running the TouchWiz UI, has a 5MP autofocus camera, a microSD expansion slot, Bluetooth and even FM radio. This is the S7070 and it is apparently coming out in the first...

Install Multiple Applications With AllMyApps

Install Multiple Applications With AllMyApps

AllMyApps offers a similar functionality as Ninite which we have reviewed last month. Both applications allow a computer user to install multiple programs without further user interaction. But that’s where the similarities end. Ninite creates a custom installer based on the selection of applications that the user makes on the homepage. AllMyApps on the other hand consists of a software program that needs to be installed on the computer system and an online part which consists of...

Sumatra PDF Reader 1.0 Released

Sumatra PDF Reader 1.0 Released

We reviewed the Adobe Reader alternative Sumatra back in the beginning of 2008 and came to the conclusion back then that Sumatra was a lightweight and fast replacement that was ideal for viewing PDF documents. Version 1.0 of Sumatra was released yesterday which actually was one of the two updates that the developer of the pdf reader has published this year. The main changes since our last review are better pdf reading compatibilities, bug fixes, other compatibility fixes and additional...

5 Useful Thunderbird 3 Add-Ons That You Might Not Have Heard About Yet

5 Useful Thunderbird 3 Add-Ons That You Might Not Have Heard About Yet

I have been using the desktop email client Mozilla Thunderbird for many years and have witnessed its rise to become one of the most powerful email software programs. I switched to version 3 since the first beta hit the download servers and have not looked back since. Version 3 of Thunderbird adds many interesting new features to the email client. It does however get rid of some of the old ones that at least some users will miss. It is also a fact that the email client is still only available...

Google Tries To Make The Internet Faster With SPDY

Google Tries To Make The Internet Faster With SPDY

Why is the Internet so damn slow. That’s probably a phrase that every Internet user in the world has said more than once. Even users with fast broadband connections experience slow downs and slow loading websites every now and then as the speed to display a website in the user’s web browser does not only depend on the download speed of the Internet connection. Other factors, including the website that is accessed, the web server the website is hosted, the location of the server...

Lock Safe Search In Google

Lock Safe Search In Google

Safe Search is a filter in the Google search engine. By default moderate filtering is applied to all search results which can be changed by the search engine user to strict filtering or no filtering. Especially families with kids but also organizations and businesses use these filters to prevent that inappropriate search results appear in Google search. There was not a way until now however to lock the safe search level which meant that anyone with the know how could change the search...

Google Drops Extra Storage Prices For Gmail And Picasa

If you visit your Google Mail account you can look at the footer of the mail index to see how many free space is still available for that account. The current free storage that most Gmail users currently get is 7839 Megabytes which should be enough for the majority of the email users. But there are some users who have made Gmail their second home, who receive large files as attachments on a regular basis and who want to keep all of these emails and files in the Gmail account. The solution...

Change Thunderbird’s Email Folder Sort Order

Change Thunderbird’s Email Folder Sort Order

The desktop email client Thunderbird does not offer different options to sort the mail folders in a different way. The only option users have is to make use of the A-Z order but that does not include the special folders (like inbox or drafts) which will remain at the top all the time. The Thunderbird add-on Manually Sort Folders brings more options to the table. As the name implies it adds the option to manually sort folders in Thunderbird including the special folders. But that’s...

Ten Great Google Chrome Themes

Ten Great Google Chrome Themes

Themes, like extensions, have only been added recently to the Google Chrome web browser. The Google Chrome theme engine on the other hand offers an advantage over other web browsers as it does not require a restart after applying a new theme to the web browser. Designers and theme developers have been busy since to create compelling themes for the Google browser. Google itself has created a Google Chrome Themes website where they post their and third party themes for the Google Chrome...

4Chan Thread Downloader

4Chan Thread Downloader

4chan is one of the most popular bulletin boards on the Internet that is used for discussions but also photo and image posting. The 4Chan Downloader was designed by its developer to allow users to download specific 4Chan threads -to be more specific photos and images posted in those threads – to the local computer system. This is the main difference to 4Chan Grabber which we reviewed earlier this year which allowed users to download all photos and images of a selected 4Chan forum...

Got A Slow SSD? Try FlashFire To Speed Things Up

Got A Slow SSD? Try FlashFire To Speed Things Up

If you are like me you like to test new software and hardware. This can sometimes be a curse as it can mean to buy hardware that has not been overly optimized yet so that the computer system suffers thanks to the user’s “I want to have it now” syndrome. This happened when I wanted to build a computer system with a Solid State Drive (SSD) as the boot drive. Those generation 1 drives did not live up to the promises the manufacturers made. Especially the performance decrease...

Windows 7: Download WinHlp32.exe to Open Help (hlp) Files

Microsoft has started making cuts in Windows Vista but especially their soon to be released operating system Windows 7.
