We have innumerable complaints from most computer users, which more or less tell us about how their computer runs slow every time they switch on the machine. This is a problem to most users who are running an earlier generation of computers using the earlier PIII or PIV technology or whose computers are cluttered up with an excessive amount of programs that somehow has not served the purpose for which it was downloaded till this day.

The following five simple tips will help you in tweaking your System to run faster than what is today:

  1. Empty your recycle bin regularly. by moving your unwanted documents, files and programs to the recycle bin, you have not actually discarded them physically. They still reside within the storage space, eating up quite an amount of valuable space.
  2. A computer runs slow when there are several programs that open up on starting the machine. Not all the programs are necessary. Go to the Toolbar option at the right-hand bottom corner of your screen and switch off, as may options as possible by right clicking on the program and selecting end program. This keeps a better performing RAM.
  3. Clear your old outdated mail files. You may be having huge amount of junk files in your spam folders. Clean up this folder regularly so that more space is available. the more the space the faster would be the operation of your computer. No more computer runs slow problems with more space freeing up.
  4. If you are having a good amount of data files, try zipping them up with a zip application. Zipping up files would ensure that precious space is now available.
  5. Run a system update every fortnight or so. This will automatically update your drivers.

With these simple steps you should not be having a problem anymore. Computer runs slow will no more exist and many menu items would open up faster than usual.

Google Wallet famously won’t work on the slick Galaxy Nexus, which may bother some folks when that phone finally lands in the US. however, if you are the security-conscious sort that may not be a big deal to you in the wake of a recent report by a security firm called viaForensics that is claiming that the Google Wallet app isn’t secure enough. American Banker reports that viaForensics found that app stores enough data on the phone itself that a well-crafted email from a nefarious sort could fool many users into giving up more credit card details.

ViaForensics reports that the Google Wallet app doesn’t store the entire credit card number, but it stores data on purchases, the last four digits of the credit card number, and transaction history on the phone. The company thinks that malware would be able to get to the data store on the phone. Google responded by saying that viaForensics used a rooted smartphone in its testing and that the app is secure.

However, we have seen malware in the past that could bypass Android security; the malware was called Droid Dream. ViaForensics says that the data stored on the phone also offers details on card balances and payment due dates. The company says that the data it stores should not be stored unencrypted on the handset.

About 320,000 customers will receive refund checks, averaging US$20, the FTC said in a press release. The exact amount of the checks will be based on the amount of individual loss.

In December 2008, the in U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland against a group of businesses selling software programs with names such as Winfixer, Drive Cleaner, and XP Antivirus. The software, with a price of $39.95 or more, falsely claimed that scans had detected viruses, spyware and illegal pornography on consumers’ computers, the FTC said. The defendants sold more than 1 million software products, the FTC said.

In January, defendant Marc D’Souza, his father, Maurice D’Souza, and other defendants agreed to pay $8.2 million in a settlement with the FTC.

iPhone 4S – Top 5 things to do with your new phone

December 31, 2011 by  
Filed under Every thing you Need to Know

So, you got a new iPhone 4S for Christmas? good choice. Give whoever bought you it a big sloppy kiss. So what do you do with it now, other than sit and stare at its beautiful lines? Here’s what.

Talk to itYou might risk some unusual glances from those around you, but the single biggest addition to the iPhone 4S is the ability to ask it a question. It’s called Siri, and all you have to do is hold down the home button until you hear a chime. Then, just speak away.

Tell it to wake you up at a certain time tomorrow morning, tell it to send a text to someone – then dictate the message – or ask it how far away Edinburgh is. Siri can understand naturalistic language, so don’t fret about formalising your delivery.

Set up iCloudIt can be a real pain keeping all your data synced across multiple devices, so we’d recommend activating iCloud on your iPhone 4S as soon as you can. one of the things iCloud does is to store all your contacts online, so if you were to break or lose your handset they wouldn’t all be lost.

It also does the same for your photos, automatically uploading them to the Apple servers when your iPhone is charging and connected via Wi-Fi. This makes viewing them on your MacBook super-easy – no syncing required.

Any music you’ve purchased on iTunes will also be available to download on your new device, and soon enough you’ll even be able to sync any music stored on your computer – whether bought through iTunes or not – with your iTunes account.

Play a gameDid you know that the iPhone was the hottest portable gaming system around? The App Store is packed full of thousands of gaming apps – most of which won’t even cost you a pound.

These aren’t just simplistic time wasters either – although there are plenty of those if that’s what you want. The likes of Infinity Blade and Real Racing 2 are incredibly involving games with console-like graphics and gameplay.

If you haven’t tried gaming on the iPhone yet, give it a shot. The process of buying games is just like buying tracks on iTunes – just go to the Apps section and look for the latest games.

Customise through appsSome people say that the iPhone isn’t flexible enough, but the true scope for customisation is hidden in plain sight. We’re talking about apps.

There are over 500,000 apps available on the Apple App Store, and the vast majority are ridiculously cheap or even free. they allow you to do all kinds of things, from staying up to date with your Facebook profile to checking the latest BBC news, or even using your iPhone 4S as a spirit level.

Just download iTunes onto your computer and you’ll have access to all that lovely app customisation.

Get some protectionYou might have heard of the fuss that surrounded the last iPhone, where you needed to put a protective bumper on it to be able to make calls without interference. You’ll be relieved to hear that this is no longer an issue with the iPhone 4S, but it’s still worth investing in protection.

Why? Because the iPhone 4S’s glass-and-metal good looks come at a price. Drop it on a hard surface and those glass surfaces are prone to shattering in spectacular fashion.

If you’re the clumsy type or just have a particularly hectic lifestyle, we recommend investing in a bumper or a good case (though it would be a shame to hide those good looks entirely).

Badr Hari – K1 Fighter

Filed under Every thing you Need to Know

Biography and career

Badr Hari began practicing kickboxing at the age of seven, under the guidance of former World Champion Mousid Akamrane. as a teenager he trained under Mohammed Ait Hassou at the Sitan Gym. When the Sitan Gym moved to Rotterdam, Badr Hari joined the famous Chakuriki Gym ran by Thom Harinck. Under Harinck, Hari developed into one of the greatest kickboxing talents of the Netherlands.

Under Harnick’s coaching, Badr Hari suffered few losses. in 2003 he replaced Melvin Manhoef with only a few days notice, to fight Alexey Ignashov. Badr Hari, outweighed by more than 18 kg, lost the fight by knockout, but gained a lot of respect for stepping up to such an opponent under those circumstances.

In January 2005, Badr Hari left Chakuriki and joined Simon Rutz’s It’s Showtime team. After a few months’ training at Mejiro Gym he returned to Harinck’s, but left again a couple of weeks later. Since then Badr Hari has been coached by Mike Passenier, who also trains Joerie Mes, Bjorn Bregy and Melvin Manhoef.
Road to K-1

Badr Hari’s road to fame began with a pair of matches against Stefan Leko in 2005. It took place at the It’s Showtime 8 event, on June 12, 2005. Badr Hari, who was generally known for his big mouth and slow ring entrance started some trash talk between them before the fight and abused Leko on the night which took a while to settle down. the ring entrance took longer then the actual fight, where Badr Hari was knocked out by Leko’s ‘trademark’ spinning back kick. Leko looked to be spitting on Hari while he was down.

On November 19, 2005, Hari got his chance for revenge. he entered the K-1 World Grand Prix 2005 as a reserve fighter against Stefan Leko. Hari didn’t seem to have lost his confidence and knocked Leko out by a spinning back high kick to the jaw. After all the bad blood between both fighters, Hari helped his opponent up and escorted the dazed German to the corner.

In 2006 Badr Hari was scheduled to participate in the K-1 World GP 2006 in the Netherlands on May 13, 2006, but fought in the K-1 World GP 2006 in New Zealand instead as a last minute replacement. His opponent in the first round was Australian Peter the Chief Graham. Hari once again showed his bad boy reputation by abusing Graham and starting a street fight at the press conference. in the actual fight Hari was knocked out by Graham’s trademark Rolling Thunder. the heel hit Hari hard on the head and knocked him out cold. Graham’s kick broke Hari’s jaw in multiple places and sidelined Hari for a several months.

Return to K-1

Hari returned to the ring at the K-1 World GP 2006 Final Elimination in Osaka, Japan against Ruslan Karaev. Karaev hurt Badr with a straight right that left Hari slouching over in the corner, then Karaev delivered a kick to Hari’s face when it looked as though Hari was already lying on the canvas. Hari was counted out by the referee but immediately he and his corner protested, saying the kick was a foul. When the referee did not respond, Hari left in anger and trashed his changing room.

Despite been knockout, Hari was once again picked as a reserve fighter in the K-1 Grand Prix 2006 Finals against Paul Slowinski. he won the fight by unanimous decision.

Hari then fought Nicholas Pettas at Dynamite and broke Pettas’s left arm in the second round with his powerful round kicks.

Hari got his revenge against Karaev onK-1 World GP 2007 in Yokohama. Karaev and Hari’s matchup was one of two bouts to qualify for the first K-1 Heavyweight Title Match, scheduled on April 28, 2007 in Hawaii. Hari was knocked down in the second round and was just able to make it to his feet when Karaev intended to finish the fight with a swinging punch which Hari ducked, and landed a right cross to score a KO.

K-1 Heavyweight champion

On April 28, at K-1 World GP 2007 in Hawaii, Badr Hari and Yusuke Fujimoto fought for the newly introduced Heavyweight belt. Hari won the fight in 56 seconds with a kick to the chin. With the knockout Hari became the world’s first ever K-1 Heavyweight champion.

Hari got his chance for revenge against Graham in Hong Kong where he dropped Graham with a body punch and won by unanimous decision.

On September 29, 2007 at the K-1 World GP 2007 Final Elimination, Badr Hari beat the K-1 World GP 2007 in Las Vegas tournament champion, Doug Viney, by a second round KO and qualified for his first K-1 World GP Final, held on December 8 in Yokohama, Japan. His winning streak came to an end with a decision loss to Remy Bonjasky, during quarter final.

All of Hari’s wins in 2008 were by knockouts, by beating Ray Sefo in Yokohama, Glaube Feitosa (whom he defended his heavyweight title) in Fukuoka and Domagoj Ostojic in Hawaii. on his next fight in Seoul he qualified for the K-1 World GP 2008 Final by TKO win over the Korean giant Hong Man Choi.

In the quarterfinals on December 6, Hari defeated three time K-1 World champion Peter Aerts by TKO in the second round. Then in semis he knocked out Errol Zimmerman and headed to his first K-1 Final against Remy Bonjasky. After suffering a knockdown in the first, Hari was disqualified in the second round for unsportsmanlike conduct by stomping and punching an already downed Bonjasky. first the referee Nobuaki Kakuda issued a yellow card and one point deduction. meanwhile Hari proceeded to Bonjasky’s corner shouting, and quarreled with his opponent’s trainer Ivan Hippolyte who then also approached Hari aggressively, but the officials prevented any further physical contact between them. After the five-minute recovery time elapsed, the doctor reported Bonjasky was seeing double and could not continue. Hari was issued a red card and Bonjasky was declared the K-1 World GP 2008 champion.

In later interviews Badr claimed Bonjasky was acting, and that Remy’s corner was screaming at him to stay down.

After the event Badr was not suspended for his actions, but K-1 has however stripped him of his heavyweight title and his fee for participation in the tournament.

While there were many rumours of his and his opponent’s participation, it was finally announced that Badr would face MMA Heavyweight Alistair Overeem in a K-1 rules match on K-1’s NYE extravaganza. Hari lost the fight by a left hook KO in the first round within 2 minutes. Part of the fight agreement is that both Badr and Overeem would also fight each other in an MMA match for FEG’s DREAM promotion sometime in 2009. in an interview with Dutch tv station SBS 6 Badr Hari is seen avoiding this match and few people are still believing Hari’s word to enter the contest against Alistair Overeem.

Hari’s first fight in 2009 was against Frederic Sinistra who was not well known at this point and won again by 1st round knockout with his trademark right hand.

In May Hari fought Semmy Schilt in a long-awaited bout for the newly introduced It’s Showtime World Heavyweight title. Hari came out very aggressively and knocked Schilt down twice in the first round. the fight was stopped after the second knockdown and Hari took the heavyweight title in 42 seconds.

At the K-1 World Grand Prix 2009 Final 16 Hari again used his trademark right cross to score a first round knockout over Zabit Samedov.

At the selection for the K-1 World Grand Prix 2009 Final Hari chose to fight Ruslan Karaev for the third time. at the event Hari used his leg kicks and cross punch to score a total of 4 knockdowns to earn TKO wins over Karaev and Alistair Overeem in a rematch, to make it to the World Grand Prix Final for the second year against Semmy Schilt. in their rematch Hari lost by TKO after been knocked down 3 times in the first round.

Spire Hack Brings Siri to Jailbroken iOS 5 Devices

December 31, 2011 by  
Filed under Every thing you Need to Know

These Siri hacks are getting serious. The latest one is the work of two veteran hackers, and, unlike previous Siri ports, is technically legal — though legal certainly doesn’t mean the same thing as “endorsed by Apple.”

Grant Paul (chpwn on Twitter) and Ryan Petrich have hacked Siri, Apple’s virtual digital assistant, to run on any jailbroken iOS 5 device with a tool they call Spire. Petrich previously hacked an iPhone 3GS to run Siri, and Paul has a number of hacks available in the Cydia app store, where Spire is also currently available.

In his blog post, Paul says that Spire “uses a new method to obtain the files necessary for Siri, so it doesn’t have the copyright issues encountered by previous attempts.”

However, there is still one major obstacle for Spire: It requires an iPhone 4S proxy server in order to actually communicate with Apple’s servers. a proxy server is essentially a middle man that makes requests of another server. In this case, the proxy server receives your Siri requests (e.g., “Siri, what time is it?”) and then fetches a response from Apple’s servers.

Acquiring an iPhone 4S proxy isn’t easy, but the obstacle isn’t insurmountable.

The easiest solution — and the option that’s available now — is to grab the proper proxy server authentication tokens from a iPhone 4S. this donor phone could be your own 4S, or the 4S of a trusted confidante. but Paul also thinks we could soon see fee-based services that will rent you space on a Siri proxy. What’s more, Paul believes something like Google’s speech API could be used to get around some of the data-parsing Siri normally would handle.

Earlier this month, a hack brought Siri to jailbroken iOS 4 units, but it was definitely illegal, utilizing copyrighted binaries from the iPhone 4S. Before that, developers at Applidium reverse-engineered Siri’s protocol. They posted their instructions online so intrepid iOS hackers could port Siri to other iDevices using a 4S UDID. Siri’s also been hacked to control a thermostat and a rotary dial phone, among other things.

Spire is a 100MB download (mostly because you’re actually downloading Siri directly from Apple), and Paul advises interested DIYers to download over Wi-Fi.

Although “Spire was cool and all,” Paul hints that there’s more to come. does it have to do with Siri? Guess we’ll have to wait and see.

Building a Computer – Benefits Over Buying Prebuilt

December 31, 2011 by  
Filed under Every thing you Need to Know

Years ago, building your own computer was a virtually nonexistent option. parts were hard to come by, and if you managed to find what you needed, chances were together the parts would cost more than simply buying a computer prebuilt. The good news is, building your own computer is now a viable option, and can often be the best one.

There are countless profound benefits to building a custom pc. one of the biggest is due to the fact that you get to choose the parts that go into it. this ensures that every part purchased and assembled is of the highest quality (or not so much if you are on a budget). Computer companies, such as Toshiba and Dell to name a few, often skimp on the parts inside the computer leaving you with a machine that is unreliable and overpriced. Choosing your own components also means the computer you assemble will have all the parts to meet your needs; no more and no less. Often, prebuilt computers may come with unnecessary accessories or components that you don’t really need but still have to pay for. Choosing your own parts allows you to be in control of what your computer can do. another important and appealing benefit is that of cost.

A custom build pc can almost always be cheaper than a prebuilt computer if one chooses the components correctly. it is possible to build a computer for two thirds the price or better of a nearly identical machine you might find at a retail store. Building a computer is also a great option for gamers. it allows them to customize their computer to better suit the needs of the graphic-intensive and high-demanding games of today and tomorrow. With a little research, a gamer could build a lightning fast pc with dual, top of the line graphic cards for what would seem like dirt cheap compared to retail price. Finally, an often overlooked benefit of building a custom pc is the amount of knowledge and experience one could gain from doing so. never having built a computer before, one could double their knowledge in a pc’s workings and have a very enjoyable time doing so.

There are many ways to obtain the parts needed to build a custom pc. one good option is to visit a local computer store. The biggest benefit of this method of obtaining parts is that the customer actually has the option to speak to an expert (hopefully) face to face. A second option would be to purchase parts from an online auction site, such as eBay. on these sites, it is possible to find components at very low prices, but one must be leery of the quality of product they are receiving. also, many of these parts may have been previously used in another computer. it is strongly advised to buy computer parts new, as used products have a much higher tendency to break down and do not come with a warranty. The third and usually best option is to buy parts from an online retailer. good online retailers carry the most up to date and newest products and offer them at lower prices than available at most any retail store, such as Best Buy. many orders also qualify for free shipping and one almost never has to pay tax.

When one thinks of building a computer they often misconceive that it is a complicated and risky feat, when in fact it is not. it consists of simply purchasing and assembling the parts and installing the software. Here is a list of the basic components needed to build a computer;

- Processor (CPU)
- Motherboard
- Hard Drive
- RAM (Random Access Memory)
- Video (Graphics) Card
- Sound Card
- Optical (CD/DVD) Drive
- Case
- PSU (Power Supply Unit)
- Keyboard and Mouse

These parts can be bought individually, or in a bare bones kit; or a package containing all the compatible parts needed. A sound card and/or video card can even be avoided upon purchase of a motherboard with these components built in (on-board), but a discrete graphics card is highly recommended. keep in mind that this is a very basic list and most would want to add a few more optional components to further customize their PC, but the above would build a working computer. Before going about building a PC, it is important to research carefully all that needs to be done. also, make sure to research the different parts, their functions, and what specifications meet your needs before you buy. Verify that all the chosen parts are compatible and work well together.

A common misconception is that building a computer is not worth the time. usually, people think that putting something as complicated as a pc together takes days, if not weeks. A custom built computer should take only a few hours to assemble for first-timers, and experienced computer builders can do it in less than an hour. as long as research is done beforehand, anyone building a computer should be able to do so in a very reasonable amount of time.

All said, building a custom pc is a great option for anybody, whether they need a simple, cheap computer for checking their email or whether they need a top-of-the-line high performance pc to handle the latest and greatest games. The benefits of doing so are endless, and the experience and knowledge gained is priceless.
