Photoshop Adjustments

For many people, Photoshop is this strange, complicated application that almost everyone knows about but finds daunting to use mainly because Photoshop’s options seem to be obscure and confusing.

Shazam Rdio

“Music is all around us, all you have to do is listen.” I remember that line from the movie August Rush. I’ve been more aware of the sounds playing around me ever since (natural and otherwise). August turned out to be a talented musician. I can’t pull off the higher notes from Lost Stars (one […]

Windows 10 Virtual Desktops

Spaces is my favorite feature on Mac. Now, Windows is natively getting a taste of virtual desktops in Windows 10.

Two, it’s closely […]

There are many reasons why you might want to password protect a PDF. It’s a sensitive work document that you don’t want anyone to see. Maybe it’s a proposal for a new project that you want people to read but not copy, or print. At the workplace, PDFs still rule, and this is how you […]

How to See Your Android Usage Stats and Get Real-Time Reports


I wouldn’t have believed anyone if they said that I use my smartphone for an average of 3 hours daily. Whatever the reason, whether it be reading, chatting or just playing games, spending 3 hours exclusively on your phone is not insignificant by any means. It’s like 12% of your entire day, while you sleep for […]
