Boost Your PC Speed by Using SSD

In short you can explain an SSD (Solid State Drive) as modern HDD (Hard Disk Drive). What's the difference then? Maybe the functions are almost same but there are some big differences between the two. Go through the post to clear the concept . . .

What's an SSD A solid state drive or SSD is a storage device that uses non volatile flash memory along with necessary controller and chipset to store the data. It's somewhat like RAM, but unlike RAM it can store data for a long period of time.

Timeline is a new kind of profile that lets you highlight the photos, posts and life events that help you tell your story. If you activate timeline then you'll have 7 days to preview what's there now. This gives you a chance to add or hide whatever you want before anyone else sees it. 
If you activate timeline once then there is no official way to deactivate it! Many users find it too complex as well as boring. 
If you wanna change back to the old style profile or if you haven't got Timeline yet, but just wanna see your friend's Timeline pages in the old style profile format, this guide is for you.
If you visit a personal Facebook Timeline with IE 7 then you will be shown old style profile page for that person. Because FB haven't created any version of timeline that is compati…

Find your Files Less than a Second !!

Very often you may need to search for a file or folder in your hard disk. If you know the exact location of that file then there is no problem. But if you work with numerous number of files and folders then it will be really difficult for you to find out the necessary file.


In Windows 7 there is an excellent indexing service for faster searching. Whenever you type something in Windows 7, you can see the results immediately. But Windows XP is not as fast as Windows 7. And to be honest, the search option of XP is not smart enough. 

Though Windows 7 has a great search engine, sometimes it may not show some files. But you can install a small program to search your computer faster than windows search engine. 
By Everything you can search any files stored in your hard disk. You will make no mistake. And it is capable of showing any file within milliseconds!
And if you're using Windows 8, you might notice that its search performance is not as good as Windows 7. Isn't it very strange?

Computer users normally rate a computer by analyzing its configuration. For example we can estimate a computer's performance by its RAM, Main Board, Processor etc. A common rating system is the power of processor.

Common File Types with Extensions

Each and every file has an extension. A file extension or a file name extension is the suffix at the end of a file name that indicates what kind of file it is.
