How to Cut Your GSM SIM into a MicroSIM(0)
Most of the latest phones coming in the market are now using microSIMs . So those with regular Sims are faced with a choice, get two two SIMS ( and two monthly plan), or to cut out their regular SIM into micro SIM. Here we’ll tell you how to convert your regular SIM into a microSIM.
First you should have modern SIM, because older SIM kept their circuity beneath the entire card, where as modern SIMs use only the area beneath the gold-colored contacts for the circuitry. So these Modern SIMs can be easily trimmed into the new microSIM without much risk of damage.
First you have to buy a SIM cutter, which is easily available in the market, just at nearly $6. Now insert your sim in the cutter and check the diagram to align your Sim properly. Now apply considerable amount of force to cut your sim.This will covert your SIM into a microSIM, now cleaned up the edges of the new microSIM and insert it in your phone.

How to protect from Tabnapping Phishing Technique(0)
Nowadays, more new phishing techniques are rapidly applied by hackers and normal users start feeling unsecured on web. But those traditional techniques are easily spotted by a computer average computer users. Recently, a new technique called “Tabnapping” came into news that the hackers stated using this phishing technique . This method is somehow intelligent and unless the computer user is aware of it, it wont get noticed.
What really is ‘Tab Napping’ ?
It is a new type of scam which does not actually depends on your click to open a phishing page rather it depends on the fact that nowadays, most of the people use multiple tabs in their browser. In this method, one of your inactive tab gets replayed by a phishing page without your knowledge. And that page may be of your bank login page or any other social networking page. You might think that you may be signed out and you will again enter your username and password which will ultimately sent to the scammer.
Protection against Tabnapping !
You can follow some easy steps to protect yourself from any such phishing scams and attacks.
How to Choose an Intel Core Processor before buying a Computer(0)
A few months ago, I was going through the web searching for an elusive answer as to what was the best Intel core processor for a Laptop,which I was about to buy and was facing so much confusion and frustration deciding the answer. After painstaking research and analysis, I found out the right fit according to my needs. I am sure many of those looking to buy their first Laptops and computers also face this quandary. So I will try to give them a reasonable solution (PS : may not be a perfect one nevertheless).
Unfortunately, the solution is not a simple one but for beginners, I will try to explain the basic differences between the three latest Intel processors before going deeper. The three processors i3, i5 and i7 differ on the following key features:
The names of these processors can be quite misguiding and each of them do not have three, five or seven cores as their names suggest. The core is basically a working part of a processor embedded inside a chip in the computer. It may be a single core(as seen in older computers) or multi-cores as seen in the latest computers. As the technology evolves, so does the architecture of these processors. At the time of writing, i3 was the entry level processor offered by Intel and it had 2 cores. Both the i5 and i7 models sported 4 cores each. It is a generally accepted fact that more the cores, better the performance of the system. The reason has been explained later.
To understand hyper-threading, you first need to understand what is a thread. In computer terms, it is the smallest unit of processing that can be scheduled by an Operating System, or in simple language, a single task performed by the machine. The cores are responsible for the process of creating threads(known as threading). So, the larger or more number of cores present, more number of tasks can be performed simultaneously. This is the reason why more cores are preferable.
Now, due to advancements in Intel technology, the company was able to simulate a larger number of cores than what was actually available and called it hyper-threading technology. It basically means that a processor supporting this technology will be able to perform more tasks with the use of a single core. For example, an i3 processor having two cores and supporting this technology will be able to serve 4 threads, two per each core. However, an i5 processor not supporting this technology will be able to perform only 4 tasks, as there are only four cores present in it. Now here, i7 becomes the king because it not only has 4 cores present, all its models support hyper-threading technology, thus enabling it to perform 8 tasks at a single time.
The picture below will makes things more clearer:
Intel Turbo Boost Technology:
To understand this technology, one must know what is a clock speed. Though it is complicated, for simplicity, it can be understood as the time taken by a microprocessor to execute a particular instruction. The processor always requires a fixed number of clock cycles to execute an instruction. An internal clock in the CPU is responsible for the execution and synchronization of the instructions. Thus, more the clock speed, more the number of instructions that can be executed per second.
Now, the Turbo Boost technology, currently available for the i5 and i7 processors increases the clock speed of the processor dynamically, thus enabling it to execute the instructions faster. At the time of writing, it was unavailable for the i3 processor.
A cache is just like a RAM, in that it stores frequently used memory inside it. It is faster than the RAM as it is built in the CPU itself and it prevents the CPU from accessing data from the hard disk, which is a much slower process. Thus, in other words, bigger the size of the cache, greater is the speed of the processor.
Again, at the time of writing: the i3 processor offered 3MB of cache, the i5 processors offered 6MB of cache(with the exception of i5-661 which being a dual core has only 4MB of cache) and the i7 processors having an excellent 8MB of cache.
These have been given by the company itself based on a variety of criteria, many of which have been explained above. At the time of writing it, the i3, i5 and i7 processors had a star rating of 3, 4 and 5 stars respectively. The Celeron and Pentium processors had ratings of 1 and 2 stars respectively.
Here is the case where an i7 processor may not necessarily be a better processor than an i5 one. A faster processor consumes more power and thus i7 consumes more power than an i5 or an i3 processor. Thus, depending on one’s need, the processor has to be selected. Like for example, if a person travels a lot and uses the batteries for a larger amount of time, it may be better to go for the i5 or i3 version, as i7 consumes a lot more power, but once again, it depends on an individual and his needs. However, with the announcement of the third generation Intel processors, we may face a drastic change in this particular aspect as the Ivy Bridge architecture ensures a lot better power efficiency.
An i7 processor is much more costly than the i5 or the i3 processors, but is it really worth buying for a marginal increase in the performance as compared to cost. In my opinion, if a person is able to afford the cost and uses power hungry applications on his computer( for example: video editing software and much more), it is better for him to go for an i7 processor, as it also future proofs him to a certain extent. Otherwise, the i5 and i3 processors are always a good choice.
So to summarize: Buy a computer with an i3 or i5 processor if you want to do some normal stuff like checking out emails, watching movies and other stuff. Go for an i7 if you can afford it and want to use power hungry applications like video editing software and much more. This will also future proof you for some time to come.

How to make Facebook Timeline attractive with Cover-Photo creators(2)
Facebook (FB as in often) introduced its all new Timeline Home settlement for most of the users last month. The Timeline however was liked by most of FB users but some are unhappy about it because of its complexity (Simplicity in my opinion). Before you want to do anything around in your Facebook hood that may revert you back to classic FB must tell that the move by social networking giant is simply permanent.
So what to do with permanent Timeline? Nothing you can do there! Just deal with it. Try making it awesome by using few inbuilt functions like Cover-Photo, Album Thumbs etc. Firstly you need not be a Graphic Designer to proceed with this Cover-Photo dilemma, you can simply choose one of the listed web portals offering so much on Facebook Cover-Photos. Using their services you can make you Timeline awesome with an excellent Cover on the top.
It is my favorite service, just login using your Facebook Account and this website will collage your album pics. However this service leaves some sort of Watermark image on the cover but what it do is commendable. You can choose serveral designs/filters and have option to select album/friends/likes for collage.
Another Pic Scatter like service for making your FB awesome! However there many ground differences between Pic Scatter and TimelineCoverBanner as both works differently but these two service provide you custom Cover-Photo which can be edited online.
FB Cover Pics is a customized Gallery which provides you choice of images you can use as your Timeline Cover-Photo.
