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.

Setting up Custom Domain for Blogger Blog

Blogger allows you to run a blog at free of cost. Unlike WordPress, you can use all the features and benefits from blogger without spending a single dollar. But if you would like to use a custom domain for your blog, then you have to purchase it from a third party domain registrar. 
Few years ago, blogger had its own domain registrar and the users could purchase a domain from blogger dashboard. And it was very easy for the users to set a custom domain that time. But later blogger stopped providing custom domain service. So, the bloggers who would like to use custom domain for the blogs, should purchase domains from third party. 

Setting up Custom Domain
Well for the new users domain set up process is little bit complex. But if you go step by step, then it wouldn't be so difficult. 
First, you need to purchase a custom domain (Choose a domain name and register it. Before that, make sure the domain is available) from a domain provider. As you know, there are numerous domain hosting site…

Beginning of the End of Internet Explorer . . .

This is gonna be the goodbye message to Internet Explorer (IE) from Marks PC Solution. Released with Windows 95, Internet Explorer is still holding the position of default browser in Windows Operating Systems. After running for the 20 years, Internet Explorer is now too old to use. 
Windows 10 (Technical Preview) users are still using Internet Explorer 11. But in Windows 10 Consumer Preview, Internet Explorer may no longer be available. Currently Microsoft is developing a new browser with the codename Spartan. If the codename is not changed, then Spartan will be the default browser of Windows 10. 


What Does the Word Spartan Mean?
The citizen of Sparta is called Spartan. Sparta was a prominent city in ancient Greece. But I really don't know where the codename Spartan come from. 



Why Microsoft is Terminating the IE?
In fact, the termination of Internet Explorer is the demand of time. As I mentioned in my browser review post, Internet Explorer is losing market share to Chrome and Firefox,…

XnView is lightweight photo editor by which you can view, edit and convert your photos and images. Though very small in size, XnView is a powerful image editor and supports over 500 image formats! It's really a handy tool for those users who are not comfortable with Adobe Photoshop.

You know Adobe Photoshop is the universally accepted tool for working with photos and images. But most of the users are not comfortable with Photoshop as it's somewhat complicated. As there are numerous image editing options available on Photoshop, it's really difficult to work on it without proper guidance. 

If you are not capable of working in Photoshop, there are many other tools which you can use to process your images. If you just need to re-size or convert your images, you can use Free Image Converter

In this post, I would like to talk about XnView which is a very powerful image processor. This is a very handy tool for working with images. Have a look at the features below: Photo Viewer &am…
