Recently I purchased Belkin N150 Modem-router which is one of the best buy at the cost which I purchased. I was using default wireless router with my Airtel connection and it was ok but always had issues with signal strength, when you are at distance.  Belkin N150 wireless modem router comes with some useful inbuilt settings like pre configured wireless security settings, VPN support and compatible with ADSL, ADSL 2, ADSL 2+, 802.11b, 802.11g.  It has a wi-fi range of 300M which may differ depending upon the placement. It comes with 4 port for RJ45 connector and one port for ADSL.

 

Anyways, in this post I’m not going to do a review of Belkin N150 router, but here are unboxing pictures of the same.

Belkin N150 Modem-router comes with:

We knew this was coming, the new and updated Facebook design/interface that was announced some time ago. It’s being rolled out, not to all but some, however, all those who’ve already got it are complaining about it not being any better and prefer the same old design that we’re all so used to.

The new design update includes the Ticker Feature, some improvements to what recent posts will be shown and how they’ll all be laid out. All these and much more improvements will be announced at the F8 Developer Conference tomorrow.

For now, those who’ve been treated with the new Facebook layout, and you happen to not like it, here’s a simple technique to get the old layout back up. This doesn’t involve the installation of any extensions or GreaseMonkey scripts and will give you your old Facebook design back.

  • Go to your Account Settings and Select General.
  • In General, check what is your Preferred Language and set it to English(UK).
  • Click on Save Changes and check out your Facebook layout now. This seems to be working for many.
Try this out and let us know if it works for you too. With this, you’ll get rid of the Ticker feature and how all the elements are laid on your Facebook homepage. If you want to get your old Facebook Chat back, follow our tutorial and get the old chat back.
UPDATE: Looks like this trick is no longer working for anyone. It seems that Facebook has fixed the issue and everyone is going to be stuck with the new News Feed, like it or not. We will update you if we or someone else figures out a way to get it right.

The Android Market is evolving at a rapid rate, and nearing those big numbers of the Apple App Store. The number of Android devices in the market is more than what you can count and it’s only increasing. You can use the Android Market to buy apps, download free apps, sell apps and also know about all the new apps that are being added every single day.

Some time back, if you remember, we told you that Amazon had also launched their own App Store to sell Android apps. Since Google’s Android OS is open source, it wasn’t a problem for Amazon to go ahead and set it’s own Android App Market.

However, until now, the Amazon Appstore was only available in the United States of America, thus leaving everyone else in the world inaccessible to it’s stores. The best thing about their appstore is the App a Day section, where they sell an app for free every single day. The Amazon Appstore is now available in few more international countries, including India, which is a really good thing for all the Android users here.

The main reason that you should download the Amazon Appstore on your Android device is ‘App a Day’, where you can get Paid apps for free and they do have good discounts on certain paid apps now and then. A really good alternative to Google’s Android Market, however the test-drive feature is still not available in India, which lets you test an application on the browser before downloading. Check out this video after the break;

To download the Amazon Appstore on your Android mobile device you’ll need to go to this link :  amazon.com/appstorelanding on you mobile browser and the app will be automatically downloaded and installed on your device. Also you’ll have to create an Amazon account to start using the Appstore and download/buy apps.

Go try it out now.

Last week there were some leaked pictures that showed the WhatsApp messenger running on a Windows Phone 7.5 Mango device. And we, obviously, assumed that WhatsApp will soon be releasing a dedicated app for the neglected mobile operating system of Microsoft’s. So they did!

The worlds most used instant messaging and sharing application for mobile devices, WhatsApp, is now also available for Windows Phone 7.5 Mango in the Windows Phone Marketplace. This is a really good news for all those early adopters of the Microsoft owned mobile operating system, as the app brings all the other OS closer.

WhatsApp Messenger, as we all know, doesn’t charge you for sending messages, photos or videos, but instead uses your data connection or Wi-Fi. That is much better than being charged by your network for every SMS or MMS that you send. You can even Group chat with all your friends who are different platforms such as iOS, BlackBerry, Nokia and Android. That’s one of the best reasons to download and use WhatsApp Messenger on your Windows Smartphone.

The app has the same features on Windows Phone 7 too, you can text any of your friends who’re using WhatsApp, send photos, Group Chat, send videos, contacts etc. Every feature, now with the Metro UI look on your Windows Phone 7.5 Mango device too.

If you’re still using Windows Phone 7, you should be receiving the 7.5 Mango update soon. To download the WhatsApp messenger for your mobile device you’ll either need to use the Zune Software on your desktop or use this link here via your phone.

WhatsApp runs only on devices that can be used to make phone calls or with a SIM slot, so it will not work on devices like iPod Touch, iPad or other tablets. You can follow our tutorial on how to use WhatsApp on iPod Touch and Apple iPad to use the app with all its functionality.

There are many speculation about what all Facebook is going to announce tomorrow at F8 meet. And as we expected, Facebook is launching new profile layout in which they have made decent no. of changes in terms of  placement of elements and most important instead of seeing recent updates from your friends, you will be noticing most popular updates from your friends. Though you won’t miss any recent updates like Google+, as  below popular updates, you will see recent updates.  This is one thing, which I always missed in Google+, as I can see popular updates but can’t see recent updates from all the friends.

Also apart from that, Facebook ticket is now integrated with Facebook chat bar on right sidebar. That will make sure, you won’t miss out any important updates. Though people have mix reaction against Facebook ticker, but I believe with time Facebook users will love it.

Here are two pictures showing new Facebook and old Facebook profile:

 

Here is what old/Current Facebook profile looks like:

We are still eyeing on f8 conference and hoping lots of new features coming to Facebook like unveiling of Facebook music and many other features.

If you are using Facebook for iPhone app, you will see the similar changes, in terms of most popular stories @top followed by recent stories.

You can learn about all the updates here on official Facebook help page. We will keep you updated with latest development on Facebook, don’t forget to join us on Facebook.

Seems like Facebook started rolling out new profile layout for everyone from today, and you might notice some changes in blue top bar. Earlier, we spotted that Blue bar was sticky and it stays at the top even if you scroll down the page, but in this new layout sticky top blue-bar is missing.

Also facebook poke, button got tinier, instead of seeing all the people who have poked, you will see a notification with recent person who poked you along with total no. of pokes, clicking on it will open up a pane view and you can see who all have poked you back and you can poke them back.

Though, this is a News about another update on Facebook, but we will start with Google+. When Google plus was launched, we never knew it’s going to bring so many changes in the way we use Social networking site. Facebook has been dominating Social networking niche from long but with the launch of Google+, we have seen many changes and features added to Facebook.

It’s worth mentioning all the new updates like Facebook subscribe button, video chat, smart list are inspired from Google+ features. Adding more into the list, today Facebook rolled out share count for status update. Earlier when people used to reshare someone updates, it never showed the no. of times that status or post got reshared. But starting today, you will see no. of shares and when you click on it, it will also show people who have shared your status updates or link shared on your wall. This also works for your uploaded photos.

This feature is going to be very useful for individual and for Fan pages. Specially fan pages can track how popular their updates are and how many shares they getting. Here are two screenshots which shows no. of shares and people who have shared it.

And when you click on view shares, it will show list of people who shared your status and more over, all the comments and likes associated with it.

This is indeed a useful feature but probably too much of copying ideas from Google+. Anyways, in the end its end-users who are going to be benefited from all this new feature and war between these two social networking giants.

I would love to know your opinion about this new Facebook share details. Do you find it handy for personal and professional use? As a Blogger, I find it very useful to keep a track of most popular status updates and to analyze how people are reacting to my fan page updates.

Social networking services have undoubtedly change the way we use internet these days, social networking hubs like Facebook or Twitter have become sort of addictions. Almost every person no matter which age group he/she belongs to prefer staying in touch with their family or friends or professional accomplices via Facebook or Twitter.

Though Facebook offers features using which users can look around to make new friends with people they don’t know but this feature is quite limited and not so versatile. Well today I will be introducing an app for iPhone users that will very much solve this problem by letting users discover like-minded people around them with just a click. Here is a brief review of this app.

ShoutFlow App for iOS

shoutflow app

Well ShoutFlow is a perfect app for social networking lovers who are always eager to make new friends. The app simply enable users to discover people that are near their present location, it not helps in discovering people rather it also enable users to connect with those people after getting a confirmation from both the parties.

The app has a built-in integration for Facebook, meaning that users don’t require a new account to login to ShoutFlow. I think this is a huge plus because services of this kind normally ask users to create a separate account. The app even before logging in shows the people who match your liking with respect to geographical location. You can view profile of any person by just logging in via your Facebook account within the app’s interface.

ShoutFlow User Interface & Features

image

Just like Facebook, ShoutFlow on its homescreen asks users “Would You Hangout with this Person?” . Give a reply of YES and the app will wait for the consent of other party. There is a Near Me button too, click on that and the app will return names of people that are near you, having interests similar to you.

Another cool feature is Shoutout, it enable users to tell their friends and family about discoveries made on ShoutFlow app. Users can also invite their Facebook friends to use this app and discover people having similar tastes and activities.

So guys if you are not at all satisfied with your current social networking activity, then ShoutFlow is the right kind of app for you. It is available as a free download from iTunes app store.
