We can take a screen capture by windows default Print-screen button and many other softwares available to capture the visible computer screen or web-page but if we want to capture full webpage then what should we do. Sometime we need to save entire page as image but we are unable to do this with most of screen capture softwares.

Here is an easy solution to capture webpage screenshots. This article has been written after taking a comprehensive test over desktop and webpage screen capture tools.

Fireshot

Fireshot is a lovely add-on for Firefox and it works fantastic to take screenshot of visible page area or entire page. Just get this add-on and activate it. After restarting Firefox you can capture any webpage by making right mouse click > Fireshot > entire Web page > save. With Fireshot we can also create image tutorials with its image editor. We can edit a saved webpage capture and can save it to different image formats. We can also compress generated jpg image.

Screengrab

It is another webpage to image converter Firefox add-on. It also works nice but we cannot edit image with screengrab add-on. With this we can only capture a webpage as image and can save it as png or jpg image.

DuckLink Screen Capture

DuckLink screen capture is a free and fantastic tool for windows. It can capture any window even scrolling windows too. There are many other tools having option to capture scrolling windows such as webpages and computer scrolling windows but these do not work well. DuckLink can pass this test and capture a scrolling window including webpages without any error.

iphone-1603-error

In my earlier post I told you about iPhone Error 1603 issue and here is another issue which I faced while  updating my iPhone to iOS 4.1. After few unsuccessful update, I started getting message on my iTunes:

iPhone Update server could not be contacted.

iphone-1603-error

This is again an unusual error as everything was working fine for me and all of a sudden I started getting this error. To resolve this issue I followed following steps, which might help you to resolve iPhone update server issue:

  • Check your Internet setting. You should not be connected via Proxy.
  • Restart your modem.
  • Restart your computer.

Out of above three, for me restarting my computer fixed the issue. If you are also stuck with iPhone update server could not be contacted issue, I would suggest restart your laptop/computer and it might work for you as well.

I was trying to upgrade my iPhone 4 to iOS 4.1. Since it’s an unlocked iPhone, upgrade should not be an issue, but my iPhone started giving error 1004 and error 21. Initially I was trying to update using Windows system but after this issue, I moved to Mac.

iphone-1603-error

While trying to update my iPhone, I started getting Error 1603 which is unusual error. I tried lots of time to restore and fix this issue (As suggested by many other forum) but it didn’t helped.

Luckily after some hit and trial I was able to fix this issue by removing my sim card and sim tray and updating it again. Voila! within minutes my iPhone 4 is updated to iOS 4.1.

So if you are also stuck in the same situation like me, I would suggest remove your sim tray and try updating your iPhone.

Do let us know if this doesn’t helped you in your case.

In the recent past, BSNL has done a great deal to change how we rate its customer service. A lot of us still use BSNL’s broadband service Dataone due to the competitive data plans at lesser prices. BSNL has just announced a way to Check Broadband Usage via SMS and also set alerts to get informed when monthly limit is reached.

This is a great new service as a lot of times the online portal is unavailable due to excessive traffic. In such scenarios the SMS service will come to rescue. Also, once you register for the alert you don’t have to check regularly whether your BSNL broadband usage has been exceeded or not.

bsnl_broadband.jpg

Other BSNL tricks and tips:

How to Check Broadband Usage via SMS:

Type SMS BBU <space> <STD Code><Landline number>

for example, if your STD code is 012 and phone number is 2342342 then you must send BBU 0122342342 as an SMS to the following number:

  • To 52295 from BSNL mobile
  • To 9448077777 from other mobile

The service itself is free of cost but you may be charged at normal SMS rates unless you have an SMS pack active on your account.

How to Set SMS Alert when BSNL Broadband Usage Limit is crossed:

Type SMS REG <space> <STD Code><Landline number>

for example, REG 0122342342 and send it to the same numbers specified above.

The registration needs to be done only once.

This service works in almost all the states. When we last tested the number for other mobiles was not working but the BSNL number worked just fine.

Let us know how you like this new service by BSNL and what more do you look forward to in the future?
