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. 
An SSD drive is considered to be more durable and stable in that sense - There is no moving parts i.e. platters, spindle, R/W head etc. which are available in traditional HDD.  

Advantages of SSD over HDD If you use SSD as your primary boot device instead of HDD then you may get the following advantages -  Faster performanceLower power consumptionBetter vibration resistanceLower heat No noiseIn short we can say, SSD is more durable and stable than traditional HDD.

How to Download a Part of YouTube Video?

Most people download the whole YouTube video even when he needs a small portion of that video. And certainly this wastes huge amount of data as well as valuable time. But you can easily cut an YouTube video and download only the part you need out of a large video! 


Background Story
Couple of weeks ago I was searching for an old Bengali song on YouTube. But it was not available in the largest video sharing site of the world! Fortunately, I got the full movie instead of the song. And that movie is 2.5 hours long. What should I do now? Download the full movie for a 5-minute song? Even the 3gp format of this movie is over 400 MB. When the song is only 12 MB. 
Though I know hundreds of different ways to download videos from YouTube, but I never think of downloading a small part. Then I googled to find out a way. And you will be happy to know that I got something there! Today I'm gonna share how to download a part of YouTube video instead of full video.

How to Sign out of Gmail Remotely?

Your email account is as important as your cell phone. Even sometimes it's more important than a cell phone. Because it may contain lots of personal as well as official information. Once hacked, it could be really tough to get back. So, you should keep your email ID safe and secured. Today I'm gonna discuss about how to sign out of Gmail from a remote location. 


Background Story

When I was in college, during my graduation, I used to sign in to my Gmail account from Computer Lab. And I used to select the Remember me option for quick login. One day, when I was working in my Gmail inbox, the electric supply interrupted. And I didn't have enough time to wait. So, I had to leave my account signed in to that browser. 

I was not sure whether the next user would get my account signed in or not. I was lucky that I didn't save my password. Otherwise anyone could see the saved password and access my account. 

However, there was nothing to worry about! Because Gmail has a great way to…

Show Custom Picture on Pen Drive!!!

About two years ago, I published this post. It's a very cool trick. Most of the users were able to apply this to their flash drives. But some of them couldn't. Because they failed to create a proper icon of their desired images. Then I wrote another post.

Optimize the Performance Settings of Photoshop

Adjusting the performance settings could double your Photoshop experience. Though Photoshop automatically sets the performance depending on your hardware configuration. But sometimes you may need to adjust the default settings to improve the performance. If your hardware configuration is strong, you should customize the performance settings. 

Couple of days ago, I got a new CPU you know. And the following parts will affect the Photoshop performance:  Intel Core i3 Processor (3.3 GHz, 3 MB Cache)4GB DDR3 RAM (1600 Bus)1 TB HDDAnd I always use Photoshop CS5 (Portable) for edidting or creating image. The hardware of my old PC was not strong enough. And it didn't allow me to customize the settings so much. But the new one lets me customize the performance settings. 


Optimize the Performance Settings| Photoshop CS4, CS5, CS6
Don't be confused! All the images used in this post, options I'm talking about are based on Adobe Photoshop CS5 Extended. Since I don't have old versions o…
