Microsoft Launch's “Office Mix” Makes PowerPoint Interactive

Be The First To Comment
Perhaps Microsoft has heard similar feedback, hence their new app called Office Mix. This application adds interactive elements to PowerPoint, and we all know interactive means better, yeah?

Death by PowerPoint is something that many an employee has to go through, especially when attending seminars, meetings, and pitches. While there is no dearth of useful advice about how to make PowerPoint presentations that will not bore your audience to death, these resources don’t seem to have much of an impact – at least based on experience and stories I’ve heard.

There is also a Knowledge Base section for Office Mix, where you can find out more details about the application. Personally, I think there are two questions that need answering the most.
One, what exactly does Office Mix do ?
The answer, from the Knowledge Base:
Office Mix allows you to turn your PowerPoints into interactive online lessons or presentations. We install an add-in that gives you the ability to record audio, video, and handwriting, and insert interactive elements like quizzes and CK12 exercises. There’s even a screen capture tool so you can record anything on your PC.
Once your presentation is ready just click “Create Mix.” We work our magic to mix it into an interactive document complete with analytics, and place it in the cloud. From there, just share the link, and your students can watch it on just about any device with a web browser. You can then check student progress online and see who watched the presentation, and how they did on your quizzes.
That makes it pretty clear that – at least at this point – Office Mix is targetted at the education sector.
Two, how much will I have to pay for this ?
It’s free! The website, data analytics, and add-in are all free.
Pretty cool, but obviously, you’ll need Office, which is not free, to use Office Mix. You can try out various Microsoft products and services for free here, though.

At the end of the day, the question is whether Office Mix will revolutionize PowerPoint. What do you think?

Top 7 Best Operating System For Hacking

Be The First To Comment

Hacking is not an art than can be mastered overnight, it requires dedication and off-course time. Have you ever thing why Hacking is possible because of “unaware developers and inappropriate programming techniques” . As a Ethical hacker i personally realize that You can never stop hackers to hack something, you can just make his task harder by putting some extra security. if you are really interested in Hacking, You need to be know Which Operating systems are used Hackers.

Today i want to say u that which is the best operating system for hacking a/c hackers .
1.  Kali Linux :-

Kali Linux is an advanced penetration testing tool that should be a part of every security professional’s toolbox. Penetration testing involves using a variety of tools and techniques to test the limits of security policies and procedures. What Kali has done is collect just about everything you’ll need in a single CD. It includes more than 300 different tools, all of which are open source and available on GitHub.
2. BackTrack 5r3 :-

The evolution of BackTrack spans many years of development, penetration tests, and unprecedented help from the security community. BackTrack originally started with earlier versions of live Linux distributions called Whoppix, IWHAX, and Auditor. When BackTrack was developed, it was designed to be an all in one live cd used on security audits and was specifically crafted to not leave any remnants of itself on the laptop. It has since expanded to being the most widely adopted penetration testing framework in existence and is used by the security community all over the world.
3. BackBox Linux :-

BackBox is a Linux distribution based on Ubuntu. It has been developed to perform penetration tests and security assessments. Designed to be fast, easy to use and provide a minimal yet complete desktop environment, thanks to its own software repositories, always being updated to the latest stable version of the most used and best known ethical hacking tools.
4. Samurai Web Testing Framework :-

The Samurai Web Testing Framework is a live linux environment that has been pre-configured to function as a web pen-testing environment. The CD contains the best of the open source and free tools that focus on testing and attacking websites. In developing this environment, we have based our tool selection on the tools we use in our security practice. We have included the tools used in all four steps of a web pen-test.
5. NodeZero Linux :- 
Penetration testing and security auditing requires specialist tools.The natural path leads us to collecting them all in one handy place. However how that collection is implemented can be critical to how you deploy effective and robust testing.
All though NodeZero Linux can be used as a “Live System” for occasional testing, its real strength comes from the understanding that a tester requires a strong and efficient system. This is achieved in our belief by working at a distribution that is a permanent installation, that benefits from a strong selection of tools, integrated with a stable linux environment.
6.  Knoppix STD :-
STD is a Linux-based Security Tool. Actually, it is a collection of hundreds if not thousands of open source security tools. It’s a Live Linux Distro, which means it runs from a bootable CD in memory without changing the native operating system of the host computer. Its sole purpose in life is to put as many security tools at your disposal with as slick an interface as it can.

7.  CAINE :-
CAINE (Computer Aided INvestigative Environment) is an Italian GNU/Linux live distribution created as a project of Digital Forensics
CAINE offers a complete forensic environment that is organized to integrate existing software tools as software modules and to provide a friendly graphical interface.

Download Torrent Files With IDM

Be The First To Comment

Torrent use is very popular these days. Whether you want to download a large file, or even a small one, you can use a torrent to download your desired file. In order to download the files, you need seeders and leaches. The more seeders, the better because you get faster download speed. The lower the seeders and leaches count, the slower the speed.

IDM is a very popular download client that helps you download many files at once, but also accelerates the download process. If you especially want to download very large files, IDM can come in very handy because it separates the file(s) into parts and downloads the smaller parts in accelerates rate. Once everything is downloaded, the smaller files are put back together into the original file you intended to download. Fairly simple, right? Now let to know..
How you can Download Torrent Files With IDM 

Follow below steps to Download Torrent Files With IDM

Step 1: 

Select any Torrent download client such as utorrent or Bittorrent You can use these clients to download the Torrent files onto your computer.

Step 2: 

Go to a Torrent uploading site such as ExtraTorrent or zBigz. In this step, you will be uploading the Torrent you downloaded earlier.

Step 3: 

Upload the Torrent using the sites stated in the previous step, or if you have a site of your choosing, go from there. Make sure to use the “Free” uploading option. Assuming that you don’t want to pay for an account, just go with the free option. Do note that if you go with the free option, there are limitations set by the website. If you go with a premium account, some extra perks are provided.
Depending on how big the Torrent is, that’s how long it may take to upload. It also depends on how fast your Internet connection is. The faster your connection is, the faster the upload speed will be.

Step 4: 

Once you have uploaded the Torrent, there should be an option for you to “ZIP” the Torrent. Normally, there will be extra options to download the contents of the Torrent file individually, but for now, lets go with the “.zip” option.

Step 5: 

Once everything has been zipped in the “.zip” format, hit download. Internet Download Manager should pop up and automatically take over the download process instead of your browser.

This may seem like a bit tedious process, but it’s well worth knowing that you can download the Torrent through a ZIP file format without having to worry about increasing or decreasing connection speed. More people these days are using this process in order to speed up downloading and uploading of Torrents.

Top 10 Free Upgrades to Make Your PC Better

Be The First To Comment

pc solving

Chances are right now, you aren't using your PC to its absolute fullest potential. Maybe it's a little slow, maybe your monitor's colors aren't quite right, or maybe it's just dusty and loud. You may not even realize these things are happening. But with a free afternoon, you can improve it from top to bottom without spending a dime. Here are 10 ways to do just that.
Note: Most of these tips are completely free, though they do depend on what you have lying around—and how nice you want things to look. You can elevate your monitors with a few books, but if you want something nicer, you may want to buy or build a cheap stand. Keep that in mind when going through the tips, and enjoy your newly upgraded computer.
1. Install Better, Free Software
Still using Adobe Reader to read PDFs? Still using a bloated, expensive antivirus suite? You can probably improve your experience (not to mention make things run a little faster) with a better program—and often, the better alternatives are free! Check out our App Directory for Windows and OS X for more.
2. Perform a Little Maintenance
A little maintenance can go a long way in making your computer feel like new. If you haven't done it in awhile, you might want to clear out some old files, uninstall programs you don't use, and so on—check out our guides to WindowsMac, and Linux maintenance for more.
3. Overclock Your Processor and Graphics Card

If you're willing to do some serious tweaking, you can get more bang for your buck by overclocking your computer's processor and (if you're a gamer) graphics card (if you have a netbook or Atom-based PC, we've got a guide for that too). It can harm your computer if done improperly, so be sure to do lots of research before you jump in, but it can really help speed up high-power processes like video encoding or gaming. 
4. Keep It Running Quietly
Cleaning the dust out of your computer will help it run quieter, but with a few software tweaks, you can take it even further. Check out a program like SpeedFan (for Windows) orsmcFanControl (for Mac) to control your computer's fan speeds. That way you can have them ramp up when you need them, but keep them running on low, quiet power when you don't. They're both free, but if you're willing to spend a bit of money on making your computer silent,you have some other options too
5. Ditch Unreliable Wireless and Go Wired
Wireless internet and peripherals are convenient, but convenient doesn't always equal "best." If your computer's on a wireless network, chances are you'll get slower file transfers between machines, and a less reliable connection to the internet (which can cause problems with gaming, streaming, or video chat).
6. Make Your Workspace More Ergonomic
While it may not improve your PC per se, having an ergonomic setup can make your PC easier to use and really improve your experience at the desk. For example, raising your monitor to eye level means you don't have to look down at them.
7. Improve Your Speaker Setup
You don't have to spend a ton of money to be an audiophile—in fact, you can probably improve on the setup you already have for $0. If your speakers aren't at ear level, try to raise them so they are, or at least angle them toward your ears—you really will hear a difference. If you have a subwoofer, make sure it's balanced properly with your speakers. Turn your subwoofer all the way down, start playing music, then slowly turn it up until you just start to hear it
8. Remap Your Unused Keys

Can you remember the last time you actually used the Print Screen key? Or Caps Lock, or Insert, or, Pause Break? Most of us can't, so why not turn those keys into something more useful? You can remap any key to another one with a tool like SharpKeys, or give them new functions altogether with programs like AutoHotkey (which, coupled with Nircmd, can do some pretty useful stuff) And if you want to label those keys.
9. Calibrate Your Monitor(s)
If you haven't calibrated your monitor since you bought it, chances are its colors are a little off. You can seriously improve the image quality by taking it through the built-in monitor calibration tool that comes with Windows or OS X. You'll find Windows' tool in Display Control Panel, and OS X's in the Display section of System Preferences.
10. Clean Your Hardware, Inside and Out
If your PC didn't come out of the box yesterday, it's probably gotten a little dirty over time. Dirt and dust not only makes things look gross on the outside, but can cause heat problems on the inside of your computer (and thus make your fans run really loudly). Take a little time to give your hardware a good cleaning.

How Long Your Hard Drive Is Likely to Last

1 Comment

No physical storage medium lasts forever, and as you probably already know, hard drives in particular can die rather unexpectedly. But how long can you expect your drive to live? 5 years? 50? Backblaze has crunched some numbers to find hard drive failure rates.P
The online backup service analyzed 25,000 hard drives it's kept consistently spinning over the last four years, noting when each drive failed. These are "consumer grade" hard drives, the majority of them internal ones but also a portion taken out of their external enclosures and mounted in Backblaze's data racks.P
They found that hard drives have three distinct failure rates: in the first year and a half, drives fail at 5.1% per year; in the next year and a half, drives fail less—at about 1.4% per year; but after three years, failure rates skyrocket to 11.8% per year.P
The good news is, 80% of hard drives last at least four years. The bad news is 20% of them don't. Backblaze doesn't have data beyond the four years measured so far, but extrapolated the data to predict a median lifespan of over 6 years for most hard drives.

Top 10 Windows Softwares For Every PC Should Have

Be The First To Comment

There are millions of softwares for Pc but some of free softwares are avialble to make your Pc more comfortable and reialble better. Below is a short listing of what we think is the best out there, broken down into ten categories.
1) Antivirus and malware protection
Most PC users realize that they need protection on their computer or may have an installed antivirus program from their computer manufacturer. What most don't realize is that there are free programs that are just as good and in some cases better than the commercial products. Below are our recommendations.
       antivirus program: Avast! or AVG
       Malware and Spyware protection: Malwarebytes
2) Backup solutions
There are dozens of free and commercially available backup programs for computers. Unfortunately many of those backups are stored locally, meaning if your house were to catch fire, get robbed, or if you lost your backup discs all your data would be lost. This is why when dealing with important data we suggest users use online backup services.
Online backup solution: Mozy or Dropbox
3) Browsers
Although Microsoft Internet Explorer comes pre-installed on Windows computers. There are several excellent free alternatives that everyone should try. These free alternatives can often be faster, have more options, and in many cases be more secure than Internet Explorer.
Internet Browser: Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome
4) Compression utility
When downloading files on the Internet you'll eventually encounter a .zip, .rar, or other compressed file. Dealing with these files can be easy with our below free file compression utility.
File compression utility: 7-Zip
5) Disc ripper and creation utility
Creating an audio or data CD/DVD, ripping the data from an audio CD, or creating a CD from a .ISO file can also be done freely using our below free recommendation.
CD burner utility: CDBurnerXP
6) E-mail
E-mail is yet another service that can be done freely. Most users today use online e-mail solutions like the one listed below. However, for those still using an e-mail client such as Microsoft Outlook we strongly suggest one or both of the below suggestions.
E-mail client: Mozilla Thunderbird
Online e-mail: Gmail
7) FTP, SFTP, and SSH Utility
Users who maintain their own web page or need to upload or download files to or from a server will have to use an FTP utility or a SSH client. There are many commercial programs capable of doing this but our below free recommendations beats them all.
FTP client: Filezilla
SSH client: Putty
8) Image editor, paint program, and picture organizer
There are many great free solutions for editing, creating, and organizing your images on your computer. Many of the programs capable of doing these tasks can be several hundred dollars, but all of the below programs are completely free.
Image editor: GIMP
Paint program: Paint.net
Picture organizer: Google Picasa
9) Multimedia
There are dozens of different multimedia programs with different capabilities and limitations. Below are our top free multimedia programs for watching video files and recording audio.
Audio editing and creating tool: Audacity
Video and DVD Player: VLC
10) Office Suite
An Office suite such as Microsoft Office is often one of the most expensive programs that a user can install on their computer. Why install these expensive programs when there are free solutions that are just as good.
Office suite: OpenOffice
Notepad and Source code editor: Notepad++
