Microsoft announced on August 23rd 2013 that Steve Ballmer, the companies CEO since Bill Gates stepped down to dedicate his life to philanthropy, is retiring in the next 12 months once a successor has been elected.
I am a strong believer in results, and what Steve Ballmer has been showing “lately” is the lack of them. I sometimes get criticized for being too honest, but its true. If you look back in the last 10 years of Microsoft the amount of successes have been very little.
Today I was looking for an easy (non restrictive) way to get some files from my iPhone without using iTunes and I found this software iFunBox, its totally free and you don’t need to have your iPhone (for example) jail braked.
Just install it, unlock your phone, connect it to your PC and your phone contents will be shown inside the software. You can drag and drop any file you see and copy it to your PC.
The website claims you can do the following things with the software:
- iFunBox for Windows Version 2.6
- Import/Export music, video, photo and ringtone files
- Accelerated thumbnail preview in Camera Roll
- Optimized device connection 2x speed up
- Alert for failing to connect the device
- Fixed crashing issue on errors
The people at EaseUS contacted me commenting about this new software they released, its called MobiSaver and they claim I was going to be able to recover almost any item from my iOS devices, and all for FREE. I know EaseUS since some years ago and I know they have very nice file recovery products, so I decided to check it out.
As you can see on EaseUS website, the software claims to be the “World’s first FREE iPhone, iPad & iPod touch data recovery software for home user”. You can recover: lost SMS, Contacts, Call history, Notes, Calendar, Reminders, Photos and Videos etc. directly from iPhone 5/4S/4/3GS, iPad 2/1 and iPod touch 4. (more…)
Its been a while since I write about Microsoft, one of my last posts about the subject was “full of anger” when they released Windows 8 obligating user´s to use a touch designed OS with a keyboard and a mouse.
A company that spent millions of dollars to develop a product was so hungry to release a tablet friendly OS that forgot the fact that 99% of their corporate market uses a keyboard and a mouse. After firing Steven Sinofsky the head of Windows unit, they are now trying to release version 8.1 which they claim will address several issues with the previous version… (more…)
I am discovering the Apple world, and although I am still waiting for the release of the latest MacBook Pro line to get my first Mac, I am preparing the software I am going to install to it. Today I purchased this software bundle offered by the guys of 9to5Mac. (more…)
We all love free stuff, but when Apple decided to eject the well know AppGratis from the AppStore it was very difficult to search which application was free today in the Apple App Store. The guys at Tekiki allows us to easily check which are the top FREE Apps available on the store on daily basis. Apple cant block it because the check is down using HTML5, not through an App.
The following is their “About” content, check them out! (more…)
