Download & Install All Your Applications In One Go

I recently reinstalled Windows Vista on my desktop machine. After Vista’s installation, I realized that the toughest part about any operating system installation is individually downloading and installation our favorite applications. The number of my most-used applications was big; therefore I ended up spending quite some time downloading and installing my applications.

All that time I spent on downloading and installation, I could have saved if I had known about AllMyApps.

And even if you do, you will not be able to know the color in a way that can be transported to another image program.

KartMe Is A Great Way To Organize And Share Your Favorite Online Content With Other People

We see social media sites popping up everywhere today. Beginning from Orkut, I now have accounts on more online social networks than I can count. The essentials of all social media are the same: stay in touch with your contacts and share interesting stuff you find online. Some social media sites are for content-specific sharing. For instance a forum that allows only health-related discussions or a social media site that promotes video games and is for video game enthusiasts. These sites provide great interfaces for sharing the material they support.

How To Easily Set Custom Icons For Folders In Windows

I have blogged about a number of programs that help users better organize their computer via better folder organization. Usually this is done by batch-renaming a folder or sorting files of certain file formats together in a particular folder. But only recently I discovered a new way of folder organization – color coding.

Imagine having a folder with a large number of subfolders. Some of these folders belong to a certain category. Instead of creating a new folder and putting the similar ones in this new folder, what if you could flag them by a similar color? For instance you could mark red all the folders you want to delete tomorrow.

For Chrome: Clear Browsing History With A Click Of A Button

Clearing our browser’s cache is a good practice. It reduces the clutter on our hard disk and leads to better performance. More importantly cache clearing is a way to maintain our browsing privacy. Cache clearing ensures that another user on our computer is not able to view our browsing history. During cache clearing we also delete cookies that track our internet activity.

Apart from a browser’s built in tools, there are numerous third party tools that enable users to wipe their data off their browser. Usually this clearing requires a browser restart. Since this might cause an inconvenience for some users who would like to continue work on the currently opened webpage, I searched for a competent cache clearing tool that would not restart the browser.

Use CardKing To Carry All Your Coupons And Loyalty Cards In Your iPhone

Coupons, loyalty cards, special offers, are all ways to earn discounts and benefits at various stores. Experienced (and wise) shoppers never miss an opportunity that enables them to get a discount. These offers (particularly loyalty cards) can be especially helpful when shoppers buy from the same store regularly; discounts on each purchase can combine to form a huge amount of savings.

Of course to carry discount cards and loyalty cards of each store we purchase from can be a little difficult – there is only a certain limit to things we can carry in our wallet. If you are an iPhone user, however, you can use an application to save your discount/loyalty cards and carry all of them in your iPhone. CardKing is exactly such an application.

View Hundreds Of Channels From Around The World In Chrome With TV Chrome

Recently I was thinking how to initiate recording a TV channel via Windows 7 Media Center. The problem was that I needed to do this remotely, in case I was not at home, remembered that a series I liked was being aired on TV, and wanted it recorded. After much extensive searching, I finally found an application called Remote Potato.

Setting up Remote Potato was no child’s play and it took me quite some time. I am still not satisfied with it. When I told a fellow blogger about my predicament, he asked “But if you can access the internet while you’re away from home, why not simply use it to view television online?” I asked him what he meant and he answered “TV Chrome.”
