EncryptOnClick is Easy File Encryption Utility for Windows

EncryptOnClick

Everyone has those secret documents, pictures and videos that they do not want anyone else to see. Even after knowing the private nature of such documents, some people just create a folder having a name that looks like system folder (e.g., “Win”, “Driver” or “System64″) and copy all these sensitive files in these folders – thinking that the folder name will fool everyone – but this is obviously not enough. For protecting your sensitive files, you should use a data encryption tool like Continue reading

Sound on Click

Sometimes, when browsing through the amazing world of the internet websites the web browser takes a little time to fetch the content of a website. This is primarily because of the sluggish web servers on which a website is hosted. But thinking that the web page is not loading because we haven’t clicked on the link, we keep clicking on it again and again – trying to click firmer every time.

View Places As They Looked Years Ago in Google Maps

Google Maps Time Travel

Whenever I watch the Back to the Future trilogy, I always muse over the possibility of time travel and if we would ever be able to go back in time. Imagine if we could go back in time and see New York of 1970’s with everyone walking in those bell bottom jeans or in 1910’s when hats were big in fashion both for men and women. Although full blown time travel in the past is not going to be possible in the near future Continue reading

How to Update Firmware of WD External Storage Drives

WD Firmware Updater

I have been using Western Digital hard disks for many many years as they are both cost effective and reliable when it comes to your data storage needs. Even though I have two 750 GB internal hard disks in my two desktop computers, my notebook computer came with only a 250 GB hard disk (Toshiba). So I ended up buying a new WD My Passport external storage drive with a capacity of 2 TB. It worked flawlessly in Windows and Mac computers, Continue reading
