Today’s Geek Squeaks – September 27, 2013

A summary of Today’s Geek Squeaks:

Squeak #1 – (Search NTFS Drives At Insane Speeds) – If you have a Windows based PC with a NTFS drive and have Administrator rights, I encourage you to take a look at SwiftSearch (portable app). This search utility reads the NTFS file table instead of indexing the drive, which can have failure points (see below)…

Squeak #2 – (If you have children, please read this) – I love it when a fellow blogger mixes tech with safety to help others. Jason over at 404 Tech Support has some very important information about coin lithium battery safety. If a child swallows one of these batteries it is important to head to the emergency room immediately (see below);

Squeak #3 – (Turn Your Android Smartphone Into A Flashlight): Never be left in the dark again with the Android app called Color Flashlight HD LED. Very useful app… (see below); AND,

Squeak #4 – (Get The Most Out Of Your Memory Cards With This Card Reader): I am hooking up to get one of the Transcend RDF5K USB 3.0 card readers. What I like about this is that it is USB 3.0 compatible, can read just about any card out there and is very easy to use (insert card into the reader and plug the reader into your USB port) – (see below)…
