Ways to Test Cordless Drills and The Power Tool Batteries?

Mr Warren Greentree , working as a Power Tools Investigator and Researcher share following tips:

A good way to test different cordless drills would be to operate them side by side doing the exact same task and see which one does it better and or that you prefer using. If you don’t want to go to all of that trouble you could just read a tech review that compares them. Usually the more expensive power tools are the best ones but you may not want to spend so much money and not need all the functions of an expensive drill.

Be a hero: play games to raise money for local kids

Thursday, October 11th, 2012


If you’ve ever wanted to make a difference in someone’s life by playing video games, now’s your chance. Thanks to the Extra Life gaming marathon, children’s hospitals across North America will get a chance to receive funds to help sick and injured children. Individuals and teams can register online to raise money for local children’s hospitals.

The Extra Life marathon encourages gamers to sign up for free at www.extra-life.org. From there gamers could select the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital they wish to support and seek online donations with benefit kids being treated at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

For the last four years, thousands of gamers have participated for Extra Life by playing video games for 24 hours in a gaming marathon in support of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Players have raised over 2 million dollars since 2008, and on October 20th, 2012 it’s expected they will outdo themselves again.

“The Extra Life movement has experienced extraordinary growth over the past four years because it gives gamers an easy way to help Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals while celebrating the fun of gaming,” said Jeromy ‘Doc’ Adams, founder of Extra Life and the program’s director at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. “Extra Life is readily embraced because it allows gamers from all walks to shine as heroes for sick and injured kids in their community while gaming wherever, however and with whomever they choose. And it’s an awesome reason to game all day!”

How It Works:
Simply ask friends and family to sponsor you by either making a monthly pledge or a one-time donation. Then come October 20, play video games! You can play any games on any platform, meaning you can participate from anywhere!

The ESA, E3, Reddit, Microsoft/Xbox and G4TV are all behind this year’s effort in raising money for sick and injured kids, and game all day on Saturday, October 20. Extra Life has largely grown since its humble beginnings in 2008, with over 10,000 players registered for game day 2012.

How to Turn your iPhone 4/4S or iPad into a personal WiFi hotspot

Monday, June 18th, 2012
Add a “personal Wi-Fi hotspot” to your iPhone to share your 3G Internet connection with other devices

Need a quick hit of wireless Internet for your laptop when you’re out and about? Here’s how to set up a “personal WiFi hotspot” – also known as ‘wireless tethering’ – on your iPhone 4 or 4S.

You can also create a personal hotspot on the ‘new iPad’ (aka iPad 3) if you’re got a 3G iPad, thanks to a recent software update issued by Apple.

Sadly, the personal hotspot feature isn’t available on the iPhone 3G or 3GS or the original iPad or iPad 2.

How it works

The personal hotspot feature turns your iDevice’s 3G signal into a short-range wireless hotspot, just like you’d find a cafe or hotel lobby.

But unlike those open networks your iPad or iPhone hotspot comes with automatic password protection so that nobody else can hitch a free ride on your private wireless network.

Up to five devices can connect to the net via your iPhone at once. That makes it ideal for connecting your laptop and a Wi-Fi iPad at the same time, for example, when you’re on the road.

Here’s what you’ll see on your iPad’s screen when the new Apple software is made available over the 3G network.

How to set up your iPhone or iPad hotspot

These instrutions apply to the new iPad as well as the iPhone 4 and 4S.

Go to the settings menu:

In settings, you’ll see a ‘personal hotspot’ menu item. Tap it.

In the personal hotspot menu, slide the “personal hotspot” option to “on”.

You’ll note that Apple has allocated the connection a default password which is shown on this screen too. You can either use it (as each iPhone 4 gets a different random password) or change it to something you can more easily remember by tapping on it.

Then, on your computer’s Wi-Fi menu, you should see your iPhone pop up in the list after a few seconds. The network name is the name of your iPhone in iTunes — in our case, “Dan’s iPhone 4”.

Once the network is selected and you’ve put in the password you selected in the last step (or Apple’s default password), you’ll be able to connect your tablet, laptop and any other Wi-Fi device to the net via your iPhone’s data plan.

Bear in mind that the feature does tend to use up a fair bit of battery power, so use it sparingly if the phone is already on low battery power. If you’ve got the iPhone’s power adaptor handy and are near an AC powerpoint, plug in your iPhone to top up the battery while you work.

Top 5 Ways to Tweak Windows 8

Wednesday, May 16th, 2012

win8tweaks-iconWe’ve already discussed on and on about Windows 8′s features and some of the possible outcomes in the final build of the operating system. However, we haven’t really touched base with many of the possible tweaks that could be done to improve the functionality of the system, particularly when you want Windows 8 to run a bit faster or turn into a more convenient OS for you. Some of the tweaks we discuss today might work in Windows 7, but all of them certainly pertain more to Windows 8, its desktop, and its features. Let’s have a look!

1. Use a 4-Digit PIN to Log In to Windows Instead of a Password

While Windows 8 might still integrate the logon capabilities of its predecessors, it also adds a bit of a twist: You can log in to Windows 8 using a 4-digit PIN code. Since several applications in the banking and telecommunications industries use PIN codes, it might be simpler to log in with a PIN code for those who are used to this kind of authentication. However, the Windows 8 PIN authentication method was chiefly designed to make the authentication process simpler for those with touchscreens, who would take upwards of 30 seconds to type in a complex alphanumeric password.

If you would like to use a 4-digit PIN, click the “Control Panel” tile in the Metro UI once you’ve logged in.

Within the control panel’s “Users” section, search for a button that says “create a PIN.”

win8tweaks-pin

A screen will show up asking you to authenticate using your current long and boring password. Do that and click OK. Now, you’ll be able to enter your PIN and configure everything to your desire. Enjoy!

2. Log In With a Picture

Although this might be a bit less safe of an authentication method, you can use Windows 8 to log you in using a photograph. The software lets you use any picture you want and apply gestures around the picture. Let’s say you put a picture of your kid as the logon picture. You can configure the computer to authenticate you by circling your finger or mouse cursor around your kid’s eyes and poking his/her nose. This authentication method is much faster than conventional alphanumeric authentication, almost at the same level as the PIN authentication mentioned earlier. Let’s configure your picture!

Just use the same method as the previous section, except that you’ll be clicking “Create a picture password” instead of “Create a PIN.” Just walk through the steps and you’ll have this authentication configured in no time!

In the below example, someone configures a picture in a way that he pokes the woman on the left’s nose, draws a circle around the head of the man in the middle, and draws a line between the noses of the two ladies on the right:

3. Remove Visual Effects for Better Performance

Every version of Windows since XP has had visual effects designed to give the user a more “fluid” experience. The only problem with this is that, if you do not have a high-performance computer, your computer is going to freeze slightly while minimizing or maximizing windows. This is also true for Windows 8, an operating system jam-packed with visual effects.

While it’s not necessary to remove visual effects seen in Windows 8, you must do this if you experience slight skipping when modifying a window. This kind of thing is visible chiefly in computers that have low amounts of physical memory, graphical memory, and slow CPUs.

To configure this, search for “SystemPropertiesPerformance” and press “Enter.” Once you’re in, click the “Visual Effects” tab and configure the visual effects, enabling and disabling what you want.

4. Configure OpenDNS to Browse Faster

If you haven’t heard of it already, OpenDNS is a very fast DNS server that is more reliable than what some ISPs have to offer. If you notice that you’re taking a long time to connect to a web page (right before the page starts loading), then you probably have a weak DNS server on your ISP. Many service providers have heavy DNS resolution traffic, making it difficult to hold their own. Give your ISP a break and configure OpenDNS on Windows 8 to make your experience more magical!

To configure OpenDNS on your computer, first make a search for “ncpa.cpl“. Once in your network interface window, right-click the network interface you use to connect to the Internet and click “Properties.” Select “Internet Protocol Version 4″ and click “Properties.” Select “Use the following DNS server addresses” and configure the following two addresses: 208.67.222.222 and208.67.220.220.

5. Configure Metro App Links to Open in Your Desktop

Windows 8 introduces the Metro UI, an interface that runs above the desktop, allowing you to have full-screen applications that operate on cloud storage and include tons of other features that give you a very unique experience. While you might like to use some of the apps in Metro, you might not like them opening a full-screen version of Internet Explorer every time you click a link. Fortunately, you can configure Metro to open the desktop version of Internet Explorer instead.

To configure Metro applications to open the desktop version of IE, you must first go to your Internet options. Do this by opening the “Search” charm and searching for “inetcpl.cpl“.

win8tweaks-inetcpl

Select the “Programs” tab and, under “Choose how you open links,” select “Always in Internet Explorer on the desktop.” Once you click “OK,” you’ll see links open up in the desktop instead.

Bonus! Tweak Your Desktop to Make it More Accessible for Touchscreens!

Here’s one thing that drives people nuts: Accidentally touching something you shouldn’t on your screen. This happens often on Windows’ desktop. All that said, let’s hop straight to modifying your desktop!

Touch your desktop background and hold it down until a small context menu appears. Once there, touch “Screen Resolution.” Inside the screen resolution window, touch “Make text and other items larger or smaller.” Make them huge, click “Apply,” and restart the system!

Now, get back to that context menu we told you to go to in the previous paragraph. Touch “View,” and touch “Large icons.” That’s much better, isn’t it?

We’re not done yet! Get to your “C” drive and select “Large icons” near the top of the window. Now, we’re going to help you configure all icons on every folder of the computer to look like this!

Hit “File” and go to “Change folder and search options.” Once there, get to the “View” tab. Hit “Apply to Folders,” and then click “Yes” to confirm your action. Once you click “OK,” you’ve got yourself a touchscreen-friendly desktop!
