How to browse faster on slow connection ?

Many of us have terribly low internet speeds provided by our service providers … but we at technorrati show you how to browse faster on slow connection

1.Send multiple files faster by compressing them

If you’re sending multiple files—for example, several files related to a single project—you can reduce their combined size by using a compression utility. Compressing your files can dramatically reduce the time needed to send files online, and compressed files don’t take up as much space in your (or the recipient’s) email Inbox. WinZip is one of the more common compression tools.

Compress files


2. Increase browsing speed by turning off graphics in Windows Internet Explorer

Graphics are important to web pages, but they also take time to download if you’re online. You can turn them off to speed your Internet browsing.

Disable graphics in Internet Explorer


3. Send email using Contact Groups (Distribution Lists)

If you’re sending an email to multiple people, create a Contact Group (previously known as a Distribution List) instead of listing each recipient separately. Messages are sent more quickly and efficiently when you’re using a Contact Group. Your company may have established procedures for creating mailing lists. If not, learn how to create and edit a Contact Group in Microsoft Outlook.


4. Reduce email size with simple email signatures

Email signatures leave a professional stamp on your messages, but elaborate signatures that include multiple images take up a lot of unnecessary storage space in each email. Ultimately, they can slow down the time needed to send each message. Instead, create distinctive text signatures combining fonts, type sizes, and colors to make your email signature smaller and quicker to transmit and receive. Learn how to create email signatures in Microsoft Outlook.


5. Work offline using Cached Exchange Mode in Outlook

Even if you lose your network connection, you can continue working in Microsoft Outlook if you’re using Cached Exchange Mode. With Cached Exchange Mode, a copy of your mailbox is stored on your computer. This copy provides quick access to your data and is frequently updated with the mail server. If you work offline, whether by choice or due to a connection problem, your data is still available to you instantly wherever you are. Cached Exchange Mode does require you to work with a Microsoft Exchange Server email account. Learn more about using Cached Exchange Mode.


6. Browse offline by saving web pages on your computer

If you use or reference a specific webpage often, save it locally to your computer. If you lose your connection or are working on a slow connection, you’ll still be able to read and find the information you need.

Save a web page on your computer


7. Open webpages faster by increasing your cache

If you increase the size of the temporary Internet files cache in Internet Explorer, your computer won’t have to work so hard when you revisit webpages. Many of the images will already be downloaded on your computer, decreasing the amount of time it takes to open a page.

U.S. Department Of Defense Reportedly Planning To Buy 650,000 iOS Devices After Nixing BB10 To Cut Costs

iOs devices deserve this

TechCrunch

The U.S. Department of Defense will order 650,000 iOS devices to replace older BlackBerry devices that are incompatible with the new BlackBerry 10 operating system after the sequester is over, reports Electronista.

The DOD will order 120,000 iPads, 100,000 iPad minis, 200,000 iPod touches, and 210,000 various iPhones models. Electronista has been told that “more than half are headed to the battlefield, afloat, and to associated support commands. Most of the rest will stay [at the Pentagon].”

There are currently 470,000 BlackBerry devices in daily use by the DoD, none of which operate on BB10 because funds originally earmarked for the new OS have been eliminated by the sequester. The DoD estimates that there will be 8 million smartphones in service over the next three years, and most devices used to handle classified data have been subjected to pricey modifications that increase their final cost up to four times.

A 99$ Amazon Kindle – Excited ?

Speculations are rife in the technology market  that amazon are deciding to launch a new variant of the amazon kindle(a disaster) …. and the best part ? Its just for 99$ !!

At that price the new amazon kindle looks poised to take the android tablet market by storm

According to reports , the device is rumored to sport a TI processor like the rest of the lineup, and will have a 1280×600 resolution, like today’s Kindle Fire HD 7″ does.

This report follows a former announcement by Amazon about reduced prices on its Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ devices. The Wi-Fi-only version will now cost $269, down from $299, while the LTE version dropped from $499 to $399.

At this price point the device looks to be a market leader … however the device does face heavy competition from the iPad(bestseller) and the other tablets of android origin.

The price (99$ .. i mean really!?) is a desperate attempt by amazon to make its presence felt in the android market .

That amzon succeeds in its venture will only be known in the coming few weeks .

BlackBerry 10 Tech Reviews

Inside BlackBerry

blackberry-10-reviews

Back in January, before we introduced BlackBerry 10 to the world, I wrote a blog post about Five Reasons to Tune in for BlackBerry 10. I had been writing so much about BlackBerry 10 that I wanted to show you that I wasn’t alone, and that tech bloggers and media were already posting positive BlackBerry 10 reviews. Well, it’s time for an update. Now that more tech bloggers and media have a BlackBerry 10 device in their hands, I wanted to recap some of their great feedback on our new device and updated OS.

Here are some snippets from the tech blogosphere on BlackBerry 10 features:

1. “There’s no question here that BlackBerry knows just how important app selection is the future of its company, and as such, has been working overtime to make developers a key focus, with a hundred or so members of its evangelist team.”

For long we have used the windows….and many of the windows users face the same issues

  1. Extremely slow
  2. Extremely slow
  3. Extremely slow

Therefore there is a need to convert to another (read better) OS . However most users restrain from changing to a new OS alltogether … instead they want to integrate one OS into the windows OS

In this guide i will tell you how to integrate Mac os x (the most popular OS alternative to windows right now )

Step One: Install and Set Up VirtualBox

Before you install OS X, you’ll need to set up VirtualBox.This is what you need to do:

  1. Start up VirtualBox and click the New button. Give your new virtual machine a name  and set the operating system to “Mac OS X Server (64-bit)”.
  2. Click Next and choose how much RAM to give your virtual machine.
  3. Click Next again, and choose “Create New Disk”. Create your new disk in VDI format and with dynamically allocated storage.
  4. Now, right-click on your OS X machine in the left sidebar and click Settings. Go to the “System” section and uncheck “Enable EFI”.
  5. Click on the Storage section of the settings and click on the CD icon that says “Empty” under Storage Type. Then, click the CD icon next to the “CD/DVD Drive” dropdown, and select “Choose a Virtual CD/DVD Disk File”. Choose the HackBoot 1 ISO and click OK.

Step Two: Install OS X in VirtualBox

  1. Select your OS X machine in VirtualBox’s left sidebar and click the Start button in the toolbar.
  2. Click on the CD icon at the bottom of the VirtualBox window and select “Choose a Virtual CD/DVD Disk File”.
  3. Go back to the HackBoot boot screen and press F5. It will reload the boot menu, Select this option and press Enter. After a moment, it’ll take you to the OS X Installation screen.

  5. Click on your VirtualBox hard drive in the left sidebar, then click the Erase tab in Disk Utility’s main pane. Give your drive a name (like “Macintosh HD”) and click “Erase”.

  2. Click the Start button to reboot your virtual machine. You should see the HackBoot menu again, this time with an option to boot into your new virtual machine. Select that option and press Enter.
  3. Now, you should see the Mountain Lion desktop with the familiar galaxy wallpaper. Open up Safari, head to Tonymacx86.com, and download MultiBeast as described in the “What You’ll Need” section.
  4. Open up System Preferences > Security. Click the lock in the bottom left-hand corner, enter your password, and set the “Allow Applications” preference to “Anywhere”. This will let you run apps from untrusted developers, which includes Multibeast.
  5. Launch Multibeast. When you get to the Installation Type section, Choose the options pictured below:

Boot OS X Without HackBoot

In order to boot OS X without the HackBoot CD, you’ll need to delete the problem kext. You can do this through the following steps:

  1. Open up the Finder and select Go > Go to Folder from the menu bar. Type in/System/Library/Extensions and press Enter.
  2. In this folder, find the AppleGraphicsControl.kext file and delete it. This will allow your virtual machine to boot up without the HackBoot ISO.
  3. Click on the disc icon at the bottom of VirtualBox’s window and uncheck the HackBoot 2 ISO, since you won’t need it anymore.
