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.

Google has purchased many services so far and improved them a lot. Many of which are quite profitable. Such as YouTube, Blogspot etc. And recently it takes over Wavii, which might be used to improve the search results. 

Wavii has been created by a group of experts, who previously worked in the organizations like Microsoft, Amazon etc. Founded last year, Wavii provides customized news feeds to the users and summarizes news stories, tweets and blog posts for them. Considering the importance, Apple was also interested to purchase Wavii.

Record Fall in Apple's Profit within Last Decade!

Smartphone giant apple faces a record fall in their quarterly profit within last decade! In the first quarter of this year, Apple earned profit $9.5 billion. And in the previous year, it was $11.6 billion! Gross margin for the quarter was 37.5% compared to 47.4% in the last year. 

Market analysts said, Apple could face huge fall in their profit. But the profit earned from iPhone and iPad has saved Apple this time. To be honest, the results were better than many had expected, as strong sales of iPhone and iPadboosted revenues to $43.6 billion. Expert says, due to the increase in competition and declining demands for the products, Apple is facing such challenge.

Google Home Page is Getting Changed!

The search giant Google may change their home page! Google named this project as Google Now. The new screen will look like iGoogle. Users will have the choice to select the gadgets that they want to be appeared on the screen. And Google has already announced that the iGoogle will not be available after November 01, 2013. 

Actually Google is trying to compete with Facebook. Facebook is so popular that Google can't beat it even after having a large number of product and service categories. People are continuing to increase their time on social networks. To catch the people's attention, Google launched the Google plus two years ago. At the beginning, it seems that Google Plus will be able to knock down Facebook. But reality was quite different. Still Google is trying to improve their service quality. Maybe the new project, Google Now, is a part of this effort.

Chuck Anderson- The Best Theme for Google Chrome!

Which one is the best browser- this debate is absolutely unnecessary now. Undoubtedly Google Chrome (or Chromium Browsers) is the best and most used internet browser right now. More than 50% net users are currently using Google Chrome. 
Few days ago I wrote about the problems of Google Chrome. And as an alternative to Google Chrome, I proposed the name of SRWare Iron

Today I'm gonna share a nice theme designed for Google Chrome. The theme I'm talking about is Chuck Anderson. In my eyes, this is the best one. It works with all Chromium Browsers- Google Chrome, SRWare Iron, CoolNovo etc. 

My personal opinion is that- Chrome and Chuck Anderson is made for each other! The style of Chrome is absolutely matched with Chuck Anderson. I've been using this theme just from the beginning. I search for other themes on Chrome Web Store, but none of them are as beautiful as Chuck Anderson.

Compared to Firefox, Chrome has a very little space at the top. When more than 4 tabs are opened at a…
