The Best Smartphone for Business

Posted by Tom Starks On October - 9 - 2013

People who have businesses need to constantly make sure that everything is going according to their plans, and they must have access to information permanently in order to take decisions and make certain choices. If you find yourself in the same situation and you want to find a way to keep in touch with your work even when you are not at the office, we recommend you to consider using the BlackBerry Z30 smartphone that can help you manage certain situations from long distances.

The BlackBerry® Browser function that the smartphone integrates allows you to access the Internet on an amazing 5” screen. So, you can search for any type of content you want, such as images, videos, and you can even opt for online reading, thanks to the Reader mode option that gives you the possibility to remove pages with the touch of a single button.

Effective smartphone applications

The best advantage that you can get by using the BlackBerry Z30 is that you can enjoy the Blackberry Messenger app, which allows you to send large messages, start group chats and share content such as images and videos. BBM is one of the best methods that you can use to connect with your business partners for free, as it gives you the possibility to talk while you type, and also to show and talk instead of just telling.

Another great app that you can use to ensure that you have access to important information is the Documents To Go™ app. The InTact Technology that it features allows you to read and edit Excel, Microsoft Word and PowerPoint documents, which is essential if you want to deliver or receive important reports. You won’t have to worry about the battery life, because the BlackBerry Z30 can last up to 25 hours between charges, so you can be confident that you won’t encounter any problems. Furthermore, you can even use this smartphone to turn a regular presentation into a great one by connecting it to a screen with an HDMI cable. Still, if you want to make a bigger impact, we recommend you to opt for streaming your demonstration wirelessly with the Miracast option. That way everyone will be able to see that you are a very determined person who would do anything for success.

How to maintain a balance between your personal and professional life?

The BlackBerry Balance technology helps you separate your work from your personal life by creating two different profiles. That way you can use one profile to keep essential information secure, and the other one for personal use. So, keeping work and personal life balanced has never been easier. Still, there is another method that you can use to achieve your goal. Choosing to install BBM for PC gives you the chance to read and edit important documents in a more convenient and safer way. Based on the fact that nobody can have access to your computer or laptop, you won’t have to worry about any information loss.

So, if you want to install BBM for PC all you need to do is follow some simple steps that will help you get the app in just a few minutes. We guarantee you that you will discover many advantages that you didn’t even know about before. Moreover, you will get all your work done easier and faster.

How to stop unwanted email

Posted by Tom Starks On November - 18 - 2011

Day by day we get our inbox filled with unwanted emails. This is not a secret anymore that more that halves from our emails are spam. At the first look, they do not seem dangerous, not at all. But in time, all those emails may bring us serious damages…

Any spam hides a virus, most of them named Trojan Viruses. These viruses usually erase important files from your computer and also make your computer run slower and slower. In this case, the first thing you need to do if receiving an email named ‘how to get rich quick’ or so is to complain and contact your ISP. They are made to filter out any strange email which may interfere with your address. The next step refers to you – from now on, be careful to whom you give your address and public it only on secure sites.

Also, if you can say how to, try to send a message to the postmaster at the spammer’s ISP in which to complain about the fact you have received an unwanted email, or two, or ten thousands. You can right-click on the message and choose properties or options to see the spammer’s source. But, beside all this mess, it should be taken into account the fact that you must be aware of sending an unwanted email to a postmaster which can be just an advertisement. It would offer to a person who you are subscribed to some money, and we do not thing you want to ruin its business.

Search on the Internet some built-in spam filters if your email provider does not have one. It is free and easy to install, and more important, it does not have any viruses. If you are not convinced yet, we suggest you to buy anti-spy software to find some alternatives. An old method of impeding any spam to interfere with your computer is to look over the Internet after the known viruses, which have usually the same names or the same intentions. Though, this method needs more time and also, day by day new viruses are invented using other names and effects on your computer. You need to have an eagle eye if you want your computer to run at its maximum power, and it is just the first thing you need to have in your mind. Any unwanted problem or email has to be erased.

Methods to fix hdd bad sectors

Posted by Tom Starks On April - 28 - 2011

When the HDD of your computer has an increased number of bad sectors this could be a sign to replace it. There are physical bad sectors and logical bad sectors. If you want to fix the logical bad sectors it could be a hope but for fixing the physical bad sectors there are no chances. An advice for this problem would be to use the “kill disk” software. This software will isolate the bad sectors and rearrange the files and folders which are not affected. You will lose the space the bad sectors used to fill (for example if the bad sectors occupied 3 GB, your HDD will lose 3 GB of its memory).

You have to know that when using this software to fix the bad sectors on your HDD you will have to format the disk and thus you will lose any data on it. Taking into consideration this, you should save any data you’ll need later and after that you will try to backup the critical files on the HDD (this could be links, documents, pictures or anything you’ve downloaded from the internet). The next step would be to repair bad sectors by running Check Desk). Go to My Computer, click on your HDD (C Drive), choose Properties and select the “Error Checking” (from Tools). Here you’ll find an option for scanning and attempting to recover the bad sectors. This action will take a while to complete. If the checking reports a lot of bad sectors, you could find in you computer (at Disk Drives in the Device Manager of your HDD the producer’s site). Download from this site a drive integrity tool for making a test of the HDD.

If there are reported a lot of errors on the drive you should ask the producer to replace your HDD. You should be very careful when noticing a bad sector because even if you manage to isolate it afterwards it could spread in many other sectors across the HDD.

Ways to fix the LCD dead pixels

Posted by Tom Starks On April - 28 - 2011

There could be two types of pixels which wouldn’t fit on your LCD monitor: dead pixels and stuck pixels. Dead pixels are points on your LCD monitor which permanently remains on black and stuck pixels in other colors. Usually there are more chances for fixing a stuck pixel but there are hopes for dead pixels too. It would be preferable to test the LCD monitor for pixel errors after you buy it. The reasons for these dead pixels could be transistor malfunctions or an unequal distribution of liquid in liquid crystal display but sometimes dead pixels on your LCD can be fixed.

There are some methods which pretend that you could fix yourself the dead pixels on the LCD monitor (for example by putting some pressure on the dead pixels with a cloth and a dull object or by “rubbing” the monitor with one of your fingers on the surface with bad pixels) but even safely, there are some programs which help you to fix them.

One of these programs is UD Pixel, a very small program (under 100 KB). You’ll find it on the internet and you can download it zipped (which means you won’t have to install it – you launch the executable file). Killdeadpixel.com promises that a simple GIF picture provided by them solves some dead pixels cases. This picture is an animation which quickly alternates primary colors on each pixel, as a good massage for the monitor.

Another recommended program is Dead Pixel Tester, a free and easy to use tool which can be used as a testing program for the LCD monitors, for checking if there are dead or stuck pixels and even to fix lcd dead pixels. Download the program, open it and then using the Color Selector button choose all the available colors to see if and where are dead pixels. After detecting the bad pixels press Exerciser button and it will appear a window which will quickly change the colors. With the help of the mouse draw this window in the area with dead pixels for 5 minutes. This will usually fix the dead pixels problem from your LCD monitor. It none of these methods works you’ll certainly have to buy another monitor.
