The Very First Lighter Phone SB6309

Although I fully admit to chuckling quite a bit after first seeing this cellphone with a built-in cigarette lighter, I can see some practicality with it. After all, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard of my smoking friends losing their lighter. I’ve been asked numerous times if I happen to have a lighter on me, despite that they’re fully aware I don’t smoke. Having a lighter built into your cellphone would come in incredibly handy. After all, your phone is almost always somewhere within reach.....

How to clean up your hard drive to increase free space

There are many reasons why you would want to do this, such as:
  • Running out of space on your hard drive
  • System is running slow
  • System Restore points are not being created
  • Corrupted or infected System Restore points

We will address 6 areas in this tutorial.
  • Delete system temporary files
  • Delete TIF (Temporary Internet Files)
  • Delete old/infected System Restore points
  • Delete other areas where junk collects over time
  • Uninstall programs you don't need or use
  • Remove System Restore points


Areas 1, 2 and 4 can be handled manually but it's much easier and more thorough if you use one of two tools, CCleaner or ATF Cleaner. Both will delete junk files that accumulate in the system temp and temporary internet file areas as well as files from other areas, like Cookies, Browser History, MRU Cache, etc. etc.

CCleaner
This guide addresses the Cleaner and Tool areas of CCleaner. Please do not use the Registry area unless you
Know what you are doing
Have a full backup of the registry using ERUNT

Download and install CCleaner. Before doing anything else, click on Options on the left then click on Advanced and uncheck Only delete files in Windows Temp folders older than 48 hours.

Click on Cleaner on the left and look through the selections under the Windows and Applications tabs. Uncheck the ones you don't want cleaned up. For instance, on my XP SP3 system I uncheck:

Windows tab:

  • Internet Explorer - Cookies, History, Recently Typed URLs, Last Download Location, Autocomplete Form History.
  • Windows Explorer - All
  • System - Memory Dumps <- Very Important


Applications tab:

  • Firefox/Mozilla - Cookies, Download History, Internet History, Saved Form Information
  • Opera - Cookies, Internet History
  • Applications - Office XP


The entries listed under Windows and Applications will vary, depending on what is installed on your system.

Click on Analyze to see what CCleaner will delete. Once you are satisfied with the choices, click Run CCleaner to delete the files and folders listed. If you've not done this before, it can result in a significant increase in hard drive free space.

ATF Cleaner:

Download ATF Cleaner then run it. It does not have to be installed. On the Main window, select (at a minimum):
  • Windows Temp
  • All Users Temp
  • Temporary Internet Files
  • Java Cache
  • Recycle Bin


Cookies, Prefetch and History are up to you. I prefer to leave them alone as I depend on Cookies and History for web browsing. I also don't see any point in clearing Prefetch since XP will just rebuild it over time. It won't hurt, just slows things down a little for a short time.

Like CCleaner, ATF-Cleaner will delete files from the areas you check, but unlike CCleaner there is no Analyze button that allows you to see what will be deleted. Once you click the Empty Selected button, the files in the areas you checked will be deleted. Some folks prefer it because of it's simpler interface. Which one you use is a matter of personal preference.

Uninstall unneeded programs:
I'll cover three ways to do this.

Use the built in XP Add or Remove Programs Control Panel applet
Use the Tools section of CCleaner
Download, install and run Revo Uninstaller

XP Add or Remove Programs
There are two ways to get to Add or Remove Programs.

Click on Start then Run, type appwiz.cpl and press Enter or click OK
Click on Start then Control Panel (or Settings then Control Panel if using Classic mode) then double click on Add or Remove Programs.

Review the list of Currently Installed Programs. Once you have decided which ones you want to remove, click on it's name and a Change or Change/Remove button will be displayed. Click on it and follow instructions.

CCleaner Tools
Start CCleaner. Click on Tools on the left side. A list of installed programs will be displayed. As above, once you decide what you want to remove, click on it, only this time, click the Run Uninstaller button and follow instructions. DO NOT use the Delete Entry button unless you know for sure the program has already been deleted and just the entry in the installed programs area of the registry remains.

Revo Uninstaller
Revo can do many other functions besides uninstalling programs, so please be careful when using it. I will address just the Uninstaller function.

Download, install and run Revo Uninstaller. Make sure Uninstaller is selected at the top. As with the previous uninstallers, review what is shown and decide what you want to remove. Right click on each one in turn and select Uninstall then follow instructions.

The primary advantage Revo has over the other methods is that it will also scan the registry and remove any remnants of the program you just uninstalled. For this reason, I strongly urge you to make a full backup of the registry using ERUNT BEFORE using Revo.

Remove System Restore points
There are two ways to do this.

Delete all System Restore points and create a new one (best choice if malware is present)
Delete all but the most recent System Restore point (just free up hard drive space)

To delete all System Restore points, do the following:

  • Click on Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools and finally System Restore.
  • Click on System Restore Settings on the lower, left side.
  • Check Turn off System Restore on all drives, then click Apply and wait for it to complete. This will delete all existing restore points.
  • Uncheck Turn off System Restore on all drives, then click Apply and wait for it to complete. This will create a new System Restore point.
  • Close the System Properties window.


To delete all but the most recent System Restore point, do the following:

  • Open My Computer.
  • Right click on your XP boot drive and select Properties. Normally this will be C:.
  • Click on the Disk Cleanup button. The Disk Cleanup window will open. Wait for it to finish then the main Disk Cleanup window will open.
  • Click on the More Options tab.
  • Click on the Clean up... button under System Restore.Click Yes when you get the Are you sure you want to delete all but the most recent restore point prompt
  • Close all windows you opened for this procedure.


Wii Cyberbike: roadtrip to nowhere

Posted by Wonderful-Tricks

Wii Cyberbike: roadtrip to nowhere

I guess the whole point of the Nintendo Wii is to get you off your ass. This latest Wii accessory/game keeps you on your butt, but you still get to move. Sort of. It's the Cyberbike from Bigben Interactive, a European game accessory company. The Cyberbike is a full-size stationary bike - from its looks, not really Gold's Gym quality, but rather lightweight home basement quality. Pedal all you want, and you'll always wind up where you started — talk about an exercise in futility.


By pedaling, you get a workout. Two thumbs up for that. But since that's insanely boring, the Cyberbike lets you save the planet. The bundled game takes you through imaginary scenes where you mop up pollution. When the planet is all rainbows and sparkles again, you can also plug the bike into Mario Kart Wii.

If the Cyberbike came attached to an electric generator, so you can use pedal power to charge your electric toothbrush or something, I'd be more impressed. Even better, I'd give my Cyberbike to Lance Armstrong, and let him power Connecticut.

The Cyberbike will be available in Europe in January '10. Pricing not announced, but it's probably more expensive than an actual bicycle.

Google Docs gets Shared Folders

Google Docs gets Shared Folders

Google Docs has a new interface and an important new feature: sharing folders. You can now share folders with your contacts and even make some of your folders public. If you allow anyone to view or edit a folder, Google generates a publicly accessible URL for a page that lists all the files from your folder.


"When you share a folder, the new permissions are pushed to all sub-folders and docs within the folder. Normally this happens quickly, but occasionally, it could take a couple of minutes," explains Google.

Gmail Helps You Avoid Emailing the Wrong Bob

One of the greatest sources of embarrassment, or worse, when using email comes when you send a message to the wrong person accidentally. (Hence the proliferation of those annoying “Delete this message if you’re the wrong recipient” email signatures.) Google added a new feature to Gmail today that should help you catch those errors before hitting “send.”


“Got the wrong Bob?” has been added to Labs, the section for experimental features that may get added to standard Gmail. It’s useful during those times where you’re writing an email to a large group of people, when it’s easy to let a mistake slip through. Using the same technology behind Gmail’s “Suggest more recipients” feature, the webmail program tracks which people you normally email as a group (say, a team at work or a set of friends), and will flag the email if you’ve included someone who seems like a mistake. Google has also given “Suggest more recipients” the new name of “Don’t forget Bob?” which is more catchy, and makes it an obvious pair with the new feature.

Now, if you’re only sending the email to one or two people, Gmail can’t help you if you get it wrong.

This is the latest in a number of Gmail Labs features that help users avoid various possible mistakes while using email.

How to show the date of every post, posted in the same day

When you post more than one articles in one day, you will have only one post with its date. It is your last post. That’s not a problem because by default, it will be like that. Blogger cannot display the date of post in the same day.

Anyway, if you are interested in displaying the date of post in all posts, there is a simple hack to display the date of post.


Below are the steps:
  • Please log in to blogger with your ID
  • Click Layout
  • Click Edit HTML tab
  • Check the small box next to the text “Expand Widget Template"

  • Find this code :

    <b:if cond='data:post.dateHeader'>
    <h2 class='date-header'><data:post.dateHeader/></h2>
    </b:if>



  • Remove the code and replace with this one:

    <b:if cond='data:post.dateHeader'>
    <script>var ultimaFecha = &#39;<data:post.dateHeader/>&#39;;</script>
    <h2 class='date-header'><data:post.dateHeader/></h2>
    <b:else/>
    <h2 class='date-header'>
    <script>document.write(ultimaFecha);</script>
    </h2>
    </b:if>



  • Click "SAVE TEMPLATE".
  • Done.


Now, all of your posts in the same day will include the date. It’s easy, isn’t it?

This may look like an old cassette tape, but it hides not audio tape but measuring tape. It's so clever! And so useful! All you have to do is keep it in the unused cassette deck in your car and you'll always have a way of measuring things on hand, because lord knows how often you're stuck without that ability.

Bluetooth headset that can record your conversation

The Celltronix VR1 looks like an ordinary headset, but it is the first Bluetooth headset that can record up to 8 minutes of incoming and outgoing calls. You can also use it to record voice memos. I’m not convinced that this product really solves a problem, but I suppose the voice memo feature could be useful. If the VR1 sounds like something that you need, you can get one for a little over $100.

Working-class extension cord with upper-class aspirations.
Coil Lamp reduces the domestic lamp to the absolute minimum of defining elements. A single electrical cord coils around what appears to be an empty volume, defining the iconic form of a table lamp and ultimately powering a single light bulb.

The entire form is created exclusively from a single 100 foot extension cord that has been wrapped around a laser-cut clear plexiglass form. This simple transformation elevates the status of the humble, everyday extension cord to the realm of high design.
