A cloud-based storage application and service. Dropbox creates a folder on your system that you can share with other devices, using a Dropbox account you create. You can specify folders for sharing with other users, too. It’s easy and simple. I have Dropbox running on Mac OS, Ubuntu, Windows 7 and iOS.
Now you can prepare a lot of docs moving them back and forth between different platforms and devices without any hassles provided this app is installed in your devices.
May be you don’t create ton of docs, but you are a heavy-duty web user. Fortunately, all the web browsers allow you to sync bookmarks, passwords, and other data across platforms. Google Chrome is the most transparent browser, assuming that you have Gmail login- just enable your sync under the ‘Personal stuff’ tab on the chrome options panel or window.
Perhaps you just want to keep notes across multiple devices, but you don’t always work in the same location.Maybe you’re out shopping, and an idea comes to you, so you need to jot it down on the notepad in your mobile phone.
In this case this app is best online choice. A free note-taking application at first glance, every time you write a note in Evernote, your local notebook syncs up with the Web-based version. Evernote also manages to maintain a consistent interface across its desktop, Web, and laptop versions, though the mobile versions do look different. Evernote offers a slick array of options that can help you integrate it into different platforms. An Outlook plugin, for instance, lets you easily add email entries to Evernote.
Syncing contacts and calendars is one of the most difficult to deal with when it comes to disparate devices and platforms. Install this app on mobile phones, PC and tablets. Then configure the user interface and the app does it all for you!
Fortunately with right tools and apps it’s not hard to ensure that all of your documents, files, contacts, calendars and devices/platforms integrate seamlessly.
If you like outlook and the way it works! Here is one tip for you to use Gmail in the same way…
The Gmail service has recently added a feature that should warm your little heart. It’s called Preview Pane, and it gives Gmail a three-column view complete with instant previews of your mail messages, just like Outlook does.
To activate preview pane in Gmail, click the little gear icon on in the upper-right corner of the window, and click on Labs. Scroll down the list in alphabetical order to find preview pane and then click enable. Click save changes at the bottom or top of the list.
Now go back to gear menu and click mail settings. Drag down the list, you will find preview pane. Next to it, you will find a drop-down menu that lets you customize the delay before marking a previewed message as read.
South Korea’s Samsung Electronics will file lawsuits to try to block the sale of Apple’s iPhone 5 as part of its global legal tussle with the US technology giant, a report said Tuesday.
The two firms are at loggerheads in a series of patent lawsuits over the technology and design of their smart phones and tablet computers. It was unclear whether Samsung would seek a sales ban only in South Korea or internationally. Apple has accused Samsung of “slavishly” copying the technology and designs of its market-leading iPhone and iPad.
Despite their legal battles, Apple is one of the biggest customers for Samsung’s chips and display screens.
After months of leaks and speculation, it seems as if Apple is finally ready to unveil its next iPhone.
The announcement date is October 4th, which falls in line with most of the previous rumors concerning the next iPhone’s fall rollout. Tim is going to take the stage and announce the next iPhone. It is, after all, his company now and he has massive New Balances to fill.
HTML5, HTML5, HTML5 — it seems to be the only thing anyone wants to talk about these days. A start up that launched at Tech Crunch Disrupt has already built an entire HTML5-based OS: Carbyn.
The Great thing about this operating system is that you don’t need anything to install as such, just open any “modern” web browser and log-in to Carbyn and you are ready to use. Once you load the OS, you can pin any app to the main OS screen. If any of the apps are not compatible with this OS, their SDK has a wrapper that can be used to make existing apps to work.
If you distinguish between Chrome web store and this OS, well that’s a store for HTML 5 apps but this OS will run the apps. If you look at it in other direction, all this HTML 5 apps run in browser; if you close the tab it will get closed but if you close the tab in Carbyn it will take you back to Home Screen where all the apps are visible. The key here is better multi-tasking because of their SDK which allows different apps to talk to one another that traditional web apps can’t.
It is exact replica of Chrome browser itself or I would say Chrome OS but Chrome is limited to only chrome web browser and personal computers. Carbyn HTML 5 OS works everywhere!!
Well it’s true that iPad 3- battery is almost as thin as razor blade, a report from Taiwan Economic news that Apple increases the iPad battery packs to enhance secure profit drive for the near future. The upcoming iPad3 thinner, lighter module is widely believed to be 20 -30% higher than iPad 2’s price.
Obviously the next version of the previous one will be outstanding, it’s same like here also iPad 3 will prove the best than iPad 2.Always the latest versions and technologies even gadgets will be wonderful and stunning.
If you’re like me, you probably use Google many times a day. But, chances are, unless you are a technology geek, you probably still use Google in its simplest form. If your current use of Google is limited to typing a few words in, and changing your query until you find what you’re looking for, then I’m here to tell you that there’s a better way – and it’s not hard to learn
- Explicit Phrase:
Lets say you are looking for content about Business Analytics. Instead of just typing internet marketing into the Google search box, you will likely be better off searching explicitly for the phrase. To do this, simply enclose the search phrase within double quotes.
Example: “Business Analytics”
- Exclude Words:
Lets say you want to search for content about Business Analytics, but you want to exclude any results that contain the term advertising. To do this, simply use the “-” sign in front of the word you want to exclude.
Example Search: Business Analytics -advertising
- Site Specific Search:
Often, you want to search a specific website for content that matches a certain phrase. Even if the site doesn’t support a built-in search feature, you can use Google to search the site for your term. Simply use the “site:somesite.com” modifier.
Example: “Business Analytics” site:www.iiba.org
- Similar Words and Synonyms:
Let’s say you are want to include a word in your search, but want to include results that contain similar words or synonyms. To do this, use the “~” in front of the word.
Example: “Business Analytics” ~professional
- Specific Document Types:
If you’re looking to find results that are of a specific type, you can use the modifier “filetype:”. For example, you might want to find only PowerPoint presentations related to internet marketing.
Example: “Business Analytics” filetype:ppt
- This OR That:
By default, when you do a search, Google will include all the terms specified in the search. If you are looking for any one of one or more terms to match, then you can use the OR operator. (Note: The OR has to be capitalized).
Example:Business Analytics OR Analytics
Let’s say someone calls you on your mobile number and you don’t know how it is. If all you have is a phone number, you can look it up on Google using the phonebook feature.
Example: phonebook:617-555-1212 (note: the provided number does not work – you’ll have to use a real number to get any results).
- Area Code Lookup:
If all you need to do is to look-up the area code for a phone number, just enter the 3-digit area code and Google will tell you where it’s from.
- Numeric Ranges:
This is a rarely used, but highly useful tip. Let’s say you want to find results that contain any of a range of numbers. You can do this by using the X..Y modifier (in case this is hard to read, what’s between the X and Y are two periods. This type of search is useful for years (as shown below), prices or anywhere where you want to provide a series of numbers.
Example: president 1940..1950
- Stock (Ticker Symbol):
Just enter a valid ticker symbol as your search term and Google will give you the current financials and a quick thumb-nail chart for the stock.
The next time you need to do a quick calculation, instead of bringing up the Calculator applet, you can just type your expression in to Google.
Example: 48512 * 1.02
- Word Definitions:
If you need to quickly look up the definition of a word or phrase, simply use the “define:” command.
Example: define: babble
