You can make the Google Chrome Bookmarks and the Bookmarks manager more powerful by incorporating the intelligence of Google Search with a NEW modern user interface (called Bookmark Manager). This extension is a “must have” extension… You will especially like the “auto folders” feature that will automatically categorize your bookmarks for you. I never cared much for bookmark managers built into browsers, but this one has me thinking differently.
Here is what you get with this extension:
One-click save: When you bookmark, you can now save an image and note to make your bookmarks more helpful. Also, Google will suggest a folder if it seems like it could be a fit.
Improved search: Quickly find that elusive page with search powered by Google, which looks not only at the bookmark title and snippet, but also the bookmarked page’s content.
Collect bookmarks by topic: Your bookmarks will automatically be organized by topic, like “Tokyo” and “Photography.” If you’d rather, you can still organize them into folders yourself.
Familiar bookmarks, new look: Your existing bookmarks will automatically get updated with images and descriptions, wherever possible.
Share: Have a folder of favorite bookmarks? You can make it public and share the link with whomever you’d like to access it. Everything else will remain private.
Access your bookmarks anywhere: Bookmarked an article on your phone to finish reading on your laptop? Chrome will continue to sync your bookmarks across all of your devices, just like it does today.
Wish you could answer your phone text from your computer? Well, you can with the Google Chrome browser extension, called MightyText. You must first install the MightyText Android App, on your phone, from the Google Play store which will enable the permission to sync your text messages from your phone to the browser extension. After you have completed that installation on your phone, install the MightyText Chrome browser extension from the Chrome Web Store.
I’ve been using MightyText for over a week now and I must say I am liking what I am seeing and experiencing. I like the idea that when I am on my computer and I receive a text on my phone I will also get the text on my computer where I can reply to the sender. Since you are using your computer’s keyboard, typing out your text messages is much faster. You can also have your contacts synced with your phone so that you can pull up a contact and start sending text messages (and even generate phone calls) directly from your browser window.
Other features include syncing photos/videos from your phone, creating draft text messages, a built in scheduler and a visual status of your phone’s battery (and an alert when the battery is low).
I recently decided to go with a laser printer from Brother (Model: HL- 2270DW) to meet my printing needs and to save money on what I was spending for inkjet printer cartridges. While checking out their web site I came across an online desktop publishing suite, that they maintain, called Brother Creative Center that is completely FREE.
Their are two project sections to the Brother Creative Center: Business Center and Home Center. Both have numerous templates to get you started and both have the ability to save whatever projects you are working on. Really nice setup on something that you don’t hear much about…
Project Categories in the Business Center: Brochures, Business Cards, Posters, Mailers, Calendars
Project Categories in the Home Center: Cards & Invitations, Activities, Educational, Party Kits, Calendars, Scrapbook Pages, Games
The cleaning utility that I use on my Android devices (smartphones and tablets) is Clean Master. I have come to rely on it to clean, optimize and protect my devices and have found it to be very reliable and fast.
Clean Master is by a company called cheetahMobile that has Android offerings such as Clean Master, CM Security, CM Browser and Battery Doctor. I endorse each of these apps and have them all installed on my Android devices.
This past week I stumbled onto Clean Master for PC and installed it to give it a try.
The PC version of Clean Master will scan for junk in your web cache, system cache, known software locations, registry, video and multimedia locations, social media locations and online gaming locations. The first scan that I performed Clean Master identified over 3 GB of junk; with subsequent scans identifying less that 500 MB of junk.
Under the settings you will find options to give you reminders to perform a scan based on a time period or when the junk on your PC accumulates to a specific point. You can also set Clean Master up to perform a scan each time you boot your PC.
Just like their Android offering of Clean Master, I am quite impressed; however, there is one thing I am seeing that is missing that I think is important. I think there should be a backup option available, especially when performing registry scans. Other than that, Clean Master for PC is going to be a winner; and, just like the Android version you will see the PC version only get better.
Clean Master for PC is compatible with Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 …
How many times have you had your remote control to your television go bad to end up throwing out the remote and buying one of those pesky universal remotes?
Before you throw that remote out there is the possibility that it can be reset and restored back to life. The process I am going to tell you about, I learned from the video below (from the Remote Barn); AND, it actually worked. A neighbor of mine had a TV remote control quit working to the point that when he pushed any button on the remote the television would go to channel “0”. After researching the problem on the internet, I found the following method that you can try to reset the remote. In my neighbors case it worked and I was made out to look like some type of genius.
STEP 1: Remove the batteries from the remote.
STEP 2 (IMPORTANT): Individually, for 3 seconds, push, hold and release each button , and I mean each and every button on the remote.
STEP 3: Replace the batteries in the remote.
