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. 

After installing SSD, you will…

Tight Policy for Adult Contents on Blogger!

After March 23, 2015, sexually explicit or nude contents are not allowed to publicly share in sites hosted by blogger. But Blogger will allow nude contents only if it is artistic, educational or scientific. Nothing was clearly mentioned about sexually explicit text - policy changed only for images, videos and graphics.


All of you know that Blogger is one of the major blogging platforms next to WordPress. It allows us to share our personal views, opinions, ideas with the world. Above all, it's a social media. And Google is trying to punish those who are earning through sharing sexual contents. 


Previous Policy

Earlier, it was allowed to share sexually explicit videos or images in blogger. And such blogs should be marked as "Adult". So that the visitors can understand that they are about to enter a site with adult contents.


Settings > Other > Adult Content? > Yes > Save Settings. 



But Google has changed its policy. And certainly this is a good move to keep the web s…

Goal Seek helps you to find a specific target from a given data. Suppose you are required to adjust either cost or price or production unit to make a certain amount of profit. In this situation, you can use Goal Seek to find out the optimum level of input to meet your target. Here you must know that the Goal Seek can only work with a single variable.

Transcend - The King of Flash Drives

Very often, I face a common question - which flash drive should I purchase? Or which flash drive do you use? Or which flash drive is faster? Considering a number of factors, the answer is Transcend and always. Transcend is a brand which I can trust and recommend to others. It's the king of USB flash drives!

Flash drives you know are the most commonly used devices for offline file sharing. When we share a movie, large software or documents we usually use USB Flash Drives or Micro SD Cards. If you need to transfer the files faster and your drive is slower, definitely it kills your valuable time.


If you want super speed, then you must go for USB 3.0 Flash Drives. But your device may not have supports for this. In that case, you will get only USB 2.0 features. And some brands will charge you too much. So, I always prefer Transcend considering the following factors: SpeedActual Storage CapacityCompatibilityDurabilityWarrantyPrice
To be honest, the speed varies with the models. But I can as…
