The internet offers various ways of sharing your notes with friends. You can email your notes or blog about them. But both of these require you to first have an account through which you can email or blog. However by using “Just Paste It” you can easily start publishing notes online without registering for any accounts.

“Just Paste It” is a free to use website that lets you publish your notes. In its own words, the site lets you “share text and images the easy way.” Undoubtedly it lives up to this claim.

When you visit the homepage of the site you find an empty writing canvas with various formatting tools. These tools let you control numerous aspects of your notes such as font size, alignment, bullets, and color. You can also add images, hyperlinks, and text in simple as well as special formatting. Mistakes can be undone using the undo and redo buttons.

justpaste-2

To the right of the editing canvas you will find tools that let you specify the URL of your published note. Using these controls you can also upload image from your computer and export notes stored in DOC, RTF, or ODT files.

justpaste-3

With your note completed, you can click on the Publish button at the bottom to obtain the three different types of links for your note. These links correspond to a direct public URL, to a code to used in forums, and to an embeddable HTML code which you can use on your site or blog.

Either of these codes results in your note being viewable. The note is viewed exactly how you edit it in the canvas. Viewers can also download the note as a PDF file if they wish.

Throughout the process, you do not create any accounts with the website nor do the viewers of your note. This feature along with its overall simplicity of use and richness of features, makes “Just Paste It” a remarkable online note-sharing application.

Does your computer take ages to boot? If yes than mostly the reason is boot-up apps, the apps that opens when you open your computer. You can easily disable these apps so that your computer may not take useless time in opening these apps. Here I am going you tell you how to add and remove startup apps in Windows.

Adding Custom Startup Apps

If you want to automatically open any app custom on your PC then this trick will work  for you. You will be thinking what kind of app you will like to be opened at startup as all the necessary apps like AntiVirus, Dropbox etc automatically startups at bootup. Well this depends upon your usage like I love web-browsing so I have kept Google Chrome as a startup app, if you are a music lover you might keep iTunes as a startup app or Photoshop if you are a photographer.

To add a startup app, simply open Startup folder and copy the application shortcut in the folder.

Where to find Startup folder? Location of  Startup folder depends upon your Windows. In Windows 7/Vista, open Start Menu, click on All Programs , Scroll down and you will find the startup folder.

In Windows XP, the folder is somewhere here => C: ► Documents and Settings ► (user) ► Start Menu ► Programs ► Startup.

Enabling And Disabling Startup Apps

To enable or disable a startup app, download and install a small yet powerful app called CCleaner from here. This app has many useful features like removing temporary files, registry cleaner etc but we will focus on how to manage startup apps.

After installing CCleaner, open it and go to tools => Startup and choose the programs which you will like to open at startup. Simply double click the program to enable/disable it.

CCleaner Windows

CCleaner Startup Windows

Remember that disabling/enabling any app won’t delete the app from from its location and you can anytime enable/disable it again.

Because I often write reviews for software and websites, I need to take screenshots as reference images to explain my point. While I have been blogging, I have come across various screenshot applications that offer a unique set of features. For a long time I had not discovered an impressive screenshot application. But then I found Screenpresso.

Screenpresso

Screenpresso is an amazing screenshot application for Windows that lets you capture screenshots and record screencasts. After its installation, it runs in the background with its icon visible in the System Tray. When you press the “Print Screen” button on the keyboard, a cursor shows up through which you can capture an area of your screen. Also displayed are the pixel dimensions of the area and a magnified view of the point your cursor is over.

Screenpresso-1

When you take capture an image the Screenpresso window pops up with that displays a list of the screenshots you took. After selecting an image in this window you can edit it in a picture editing program of your choice and save it as some other file, or share it one of many online social networks.

Screenpresso-2

Screenpresso’s options let you control the image quality, image format, and add effects on the screenshots you take. The program also serves as an excellent screencast tool through which you can record the entire screen or only a portion of it. The screencast can be saved as a separate file and viewed in Screenpresso’s own player or a media player of your choice.

Screenpresso-3

Normally I had to use two separate programs for screenshots and screencasts, but this 2-in-1 solution has certainly simplified things. I am sure you will find Screenpresso as helpful as I did.

You can get the program from http://screenpresso.com/

Nokia’s Symbian OS has been around from a long time and it’s been one of the most popular and highly used operating system that Nokia has always endorsed on almost all of it’s products until recently. Symbian OS evolved quite a lot, but it’s interface has been all same since the beginning, even the new Symbian ^3 OS doesn’t really change anything. And with the evolution of Android OS and dominance of Apple’s iOS, Nokia’s Symbian just wasn’t good enough for smartphones, very easy to use, but not built with power and performance in mind.

Nokia thus declared, at it’s Capital Markets Day, that they’ll be killing the Symbian OS altogether and will shift their focus to Microsoft’s Windows Phone products. They haven’t given out any official date yet, but it would mostly be over in the year 2012. The death of one of the most used operating systems for mobile phones, the Symbian OS. Nokia will thus be switching over to Windows Phone 7 for their future mobile phones, and there has already been an official announcement about the partnership of Nokia and Microsoft.

Nokia and Microsoft together will be something good that might happen to Nokia after all, but we can’t be really sure. Nokia will transform it’s Meego platform to an ‘experimental project’ and Windows Phone 7 will becomes it’s official OS merchandise.

Nokia plans to form a strategic partnership with Microsoft to build a global mobile ecosystem based on highly complementary assets. The Nokia-Microsoft ecosystem targets to deliver differentiated and innovative products and have unrivalled scale, product breadth, geographical reach, and brand identity. With Windows Phone as its primary smartphone platform, Nokia would help drive the future of the platform by leveraging its expertise on hardware optimization, software customization, language support and scale. Nokia and Microsoft would also combine services assets to drive innovation. Nokia Maps, for example, would be at the heart of key Microsoft assets like Bing and AdCenter, and Nokia’s application and content store would be integrated into Microsoft Marketplace. Under the proposed partnership, Microsoft would provide developer tools, making it easier for application developers to leverage Nokia’s global scale.

What do you think about this move by Nokia? Do you think partnership with Microsoft will be fruitful?

clip_image002Subtitles to videos help the viewers in a variety of ways. The most obvious help is in understanding a foreign language movie. Another way subtitles are helpful is to help communicate with people whose hearing is impaired.

Often subtitle files come in SRT format or other formats that are viewable via Notepad or some other text editor. While viewing them in these editors is easy, editing them is not. To create or modify a subtitles file you need a software dedicated to this very function. Jubler is such a software and it will let you do the job perfectly.

With the market being flooded with numerous devices in every segment it really does get pretty confusing for the consumer. An average consumer can’t really own all of these. The attractively low prices and the smaller designs are very appealing but bring with themselves the dilemma of whether or not they will perform.
