How to Shutdown Windows System With One Click

In Windows 8 you need to go to ‘Charms bar’ and then settings and then shutdown button. This would take some seconds and more importantly rambling around the window screen. Also if you are downloading something and want to shutdown after certain time, you can automate or schedule the shutdown of your windows system with this simple trick. No extra software to install, just follow the instructions below.

Shortcut to shutdown

properties-new-shortcut

1. Right click – New – Shortcut
2. Set location/path: shutdown /s /t 3600
(3600 for 60 minutes. Give 0 for immediate shutdown)
3. Name the file, change icon(if you prefer to) and place it in a safe place – I prefer to have it on my desktop.

Whenever you want to shutdown your system, you can simply click this executable file.

I usually use command prompt to set the shutdown timing of my computer, while I’ve set the system to download something in the background.
Hope this would be a helpful tip.

How to reduce file size of an image in 10 seconds

Photos shot with digital camera usually have a huge file size – anywhere from 6MB to 12MB. If you use these images on a webpage it’ll take a lot of time for the page to load. This creates a lot of problems: user has to wait till the page loads, consumption of server bandwidth, more consumption of users internet data, and it’s not good from SEO angle too!

No Photoshoping
You need not be a photoshop expert to do this. Infact, you need not even install any complicated software.

ms-paint
If you’re on Windows, then you already have the software installed in your system by default.

How to reduce file size of an image and resize(image dimension) the image

Click Ctrl + w and resize the image.
Now save the image and check the file size.



This way you don’t even lose the quality of the image.

Facebook Browser Based Standalone Messenger

Recently Facebook started forcing its mobile app users to start using its standalone messaging app. Now it looks like the company is trying the same with its Desktop users. Facebook has a dedicated domain and web based messaging ready at messenger.com

facebook-messenger

3 layered messaging app
The main difference from the one we have integrated with Facebook is, this dedicated messaging app utilized full width of your browser. Shows list of people with whom you had conversation recently to the left. In the center, you have the facility to message the selected user – it comes with usual animated and static emoticons, stickers, option to select and upload image from your computer and a quick like button. To the right hand column, it has brief detail of the person you’re chatting to.

Previously some people use to make use of some browser extensions/adons to remove the news feed, so that they can get rid of the extra distraction – if it was you, then messenger.com is exactly what you might be looking for.

Group Chat – Call – Video Chat

Relaunching TwitFever.com + An exciting onetime offer

We are very grateful to all TwitFever.com members who made our previous launch a grand success. We had to stop TwitFever.com as Twitter decided to upgrade/change its API and set some strict rules and access limitations. Many popular tech blogs called it anti-developer move from Twitter.


TwitFever.com

With new Twitter API, most of so-called popular Twitter applications had to shut down its services – due to its high maintenance cost and the need to redo the entire app with new set of APIs. So we took some time and rewrote the entire application from scratch with new Twitter API.

Twitter API Changes
Adapting to change is usually hard for developers, as we need to rewrite the entire application from scratch once again. But if we take a closer look – Twitter set these limitations to avoid wrong usage of their service. Ofcourse these limitations would mean a lot of pain for developers using it for good purpose – but then, we need to bear it and do our best with the resources available.

Relaunch of TwitFever.com
We are very excited to announce the relaunch of TwitFever.com
With this launch we are eliminating a lot of drawbacks we previously had.




Now TwitFever is a full-fledged Twitter Client.
Mobile app for android, iOS, BlackBerry, Windows coming soon ..
It has Retweet Club integrated into it.
Now you only get tweets from your niche – from Club.
You also get a lot of targeted, real followers.
Smart auto-follow feature – opt in/opt out option available to the user.
No auto-tweeting on behalf of members.
Everything is under control of the user.
Bots are blocked – 100%.
As always, we do not store your personal information.
We never store your Twitter username and password.
We do not sell or rent any of our members data what-so-ever.

TwitFever.com will instantly boost traffic to your content and add viral touch to it. Most importantly, your message/content will reach to highly targeted audience automatically. The followers you get from TwitFever.com are 100% real and are highly targeted too – similar niche.

Pricing
Since it involves very high cost of maintenance, we are compelled to charge $9 per month. But if you sign up in this early release, you’ll be a member free of cost for lifetime. But you need to sign up soon and submit at least 1 of your best content/tweet to the club before we start charging for the service.

Lollipop
Android 5.0 is also the first version of Android that’s been optimized for 64-bit architecture.

Obviously, this will enable hardware manufacturers to go with more powerful 64 bit tablets and smartphones.
