Lock A Folder Without using any Software

This trick has only been tested in Windows XP.

Suppose you want to lock the folder virus in D: which has the path D:\virus

In the same drive create a text file and type:

“ren virus virus.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}” (Without the quotes)

Now save the text file as lock.bat 

Create another text file and type in it:

 “ren virus.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D} virus” (Without the quotes)

 Now save the text file as key.bat

Now you can see 2 .bat files. Lock.bat and key.bat Press lock and the folder “virus” will change to control panel and you won’t be able to view its contents. Press key and you will get back your original folder.

Enjoy… Thank You.

Real-life Superheroes: #9 (The Boy with Sonar Vision)

Ben Underwoodtaught is blind, both of his eyes were removed (cancer) when he was 3. Yet, he plays basketball, rides on a bicycle, and lives a quite normal life. He has teached himself to use echo location to navigate around the world. With no guide-dogs, he doesn’t even need hands: he uses sound. Ben makes a short click sound that bounces back from objects. Amazingly, his ears pick up the ecos to let him know where the objects are. He’s the only person in the world who sees using nothing but eco location, like a sonar or a dolphin.

Online TV is Conquering the Space

Online TV is Conquering the Space

Now the content can live forever online. Websites increasingly offer streaming versions of online TV shows. “Although online television viewing is still not a widespread phenomenon, the proportion of users has increased since 2006 and is likely to increase over time, given consumers’ love for entertainment,” said Lynn Franco, director of The Conference Board Consumer Research Center.

A report from Nielsen Online reveals that women are nearly twice as likely as men to watch online TV shows on broadcast network TV sites, at least in the 18-to-34 age range. And men are two-and-a-half times more likely to watch video from the top consumer-generated media Web sites – YouTube, MySpace, Veoh, and Break.com. Another thing that’s interesting from the report is when the viewing of all this streaming video is being done. Most of the network TV watching online is happening during the lunch hours of noon to 2 p.m. during the week, while most of the viral video viewing is between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. on the weekends.

People who are watching TV online say they primarily do so because they like the convenience and the ability to avoid commercials, according to the study. At the same time they like to watch famous comedians, like, for instance, Angela Means or Bernadette Balagtas.

“Over the next few years, the growing popularity of viewing TV episodes/shows online is going to have a huge impact on the way brands and advertisers communicate with viewers,” said Shari Morwood, executive VP of technology, telecommunications and media at TNS. “If advertisers can effectively leverage the online video platform, we should see much more interactivity and emotional connection between brands and the online TV viewing audience.

Turn Your Headphones Into A Mic!

1.)Take any headphone you want. Doesn’t matter if its the buds or the ones that go around your ear.

2.)Open up Sound Recorder(If you’re using Windows)

3.)Plug in your headphones in the Pink Jack on your Laptop or Desktop.

4.)Press the record button on Sound Recorder and put the left part up to your mouth and make noise. Do the same for the right side. Which ever part you get results from(you will know this by the sound recorder showing the movement of sound in the display)

There you go. That’s it. Now the next time someone asks if you have a mic and you say no, think again. You might have to talk a little louder than normal, but at least you have a Mic.

You can use it with skype, msn or any chat client. Enjoy…

Thank You.
