Protect Your BlackBerry Remotely

Now you can protect your BlackBerry device remotely in case you lose it or it gets stolen. You can locate your BlackBerry phone, lock its data, and even backup some of its data with this new service. I found the icon right on my home menu, but you can download it for free from BB World App Store.

An easy program for cleaning up duplicate files on Macs

  • Decloner is a very simple Mac software, that searches your computer for duplicate files.
  • It  identifies all duplicate files, and allows you to either transfer them to the trash can or to a folder of your choice, Wither way, they are not automatically deleted by the software.
  • And just to make sure you don’t delete something important; there is a small preview icon of every duplicate file, which you can check before deleting.
  • The software is free to try for 30 days, and is sold for $20 if you want to buy it. You can download it from here.

I used Decloner on my system a few days ago. It searched my Hard Disc (filled with 280 GB) in about 30 minutes. I was able to delete duplicate, and triplicate, pictures and videos; which saved me 40 GB worth of space.

I highly recommend this software for these reasons: super easy and fast, doesn’t permanently delete, allows you to transfer to trash can or a folder, has a preview icon for every file, and sorts filed according to size.

New features with the new iPad software update

  • I think most of you have heard by now that Apple came out with a very important update to the iPad’s software last week.
  • This new update is full of features, and in my opinion is a must, and should be downloaded by every iPad user.
  • The main improvements Apple made are explained by these pics I got by email.
  • Multitasking finally comes to the iPad.
  • Folders is also a new thing that comes to the iPad, and allows you to organize your apps the way you like them.
  • Now you can wirelessly print, view and watch directly from your iPad.
  • I would love to be able to watch movies on my TV, with this ease Apple is talking about.
  • The Find my iPad feature (that used to be available with the iPhone only) now works on the iPad too, and is free of charge.

 

The update took a couple of hours to complete, but that included the mandatory iTunes upgrade too.

I haven’t tried the folder thing, not the air play thing yet. But I can definitely tell you that my iPad is faster than before, and the update it self is smaller in size than the previous OS.

Vanity Fair’s most influential 100 people

Vanity Fair just published its list of the 100 most influential people in the information age. And you will not believe who is # 1. Let me give you a hint, it’s not Bill Gates, it’s not Steve Jobs… It’s actually the founder of Facebook!!

Here are the top 10, you can read all the rest over at Vanity Fair:

  1. Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook. With 500 million members, it’s not difficult to see why Mark Z is #1.
  2. Steve Jobs of Apple. His huge influence and impact on both the music and smart phone businesses put him at #2.
  3. Sergey Brin, Larry Page, and Eric Schmidt of Google. These 3 guys own the most popular site on the net, and their Android system phones are expected to surpass iPhone by 2012.
  4. Rupert Murdoch of News Corporation. Ownerships include print media, as well as Fox TV & film.
  5. Jeff Bezos of Amazon. Need we say more on why he’s on the list? He single handedly revolutionized online shopping, wether books, ebooks, or Kindle e-reader.
  6. Bernard Arnault of LVMH. He’s the richest man in Europe, and was able to steer the luxury empire in the roughest financial crises in decades.
  7. Michael Bloomberg the Mayor of New York. In addition to his vast fortune, he was able to achieve tremendous success as mayor, with reduced crime and improved education.
  8. Larry Ellison of Oracle. His software practically dominates the world, plus he and 37 other billionairs have promised to donate half their fortunes to charity. Well Done Larry, along with Bill Gates and Warren Buffett.
  9. Evan Williams and Biz Stone of Twitter. With 124 million users and a billion tweets a month, they sure deserve to be on the top 10 list.
  10. John Malone. His media empire includes Expedia and Sirius internet radio among other things.

I know some of my friends will be over the moon with this list. One person in particular is so in love with LV, Expedia, Apple, and Facebook all at once. Knock yourself out with the list R.
