SkipScreen - Avoid Waiting To Download at RapiShare, 4Shared, MegaUpload. etc

Posted by Oluwajoba Odesanya In , , , | 0 comments»
It can be quite annoying at times to have to wait 60 seconds or sometime like 600 seconds before you can download a file from the popular file sharing services. SkipScree is just the tool you need to avoid this. With this add-on for firefox you do not have to wait again.
However, the purpose behind this constraint to download immediately is for them to get you to sign up for their premium service. This does not usually cost much so you can get their premium service if you have the means. There are benefits for doing this too like :
  1. Better bandwidth
  2. Support for resumed downloading
  3. Support for download managers and accelerators

My Secret way of downloading from any website

Posted by Oluwajoba Odesanya In , , , , | 0 comments»
I'm proud to give you this tip or short tutorial. It's a really cool thing if you know ways of going around things.
This is about using an advanced search term in google to download softwares, music or any file.
Searching for information in Google is not only about typing in keywords.

There are also advanced search strings that can get you advanced results like the one I'm giving our now. I have used this to get many softwares out there that are supposed to be for sale. One cool thing about this where for-sale softwares are concerned is that I discovered that most of these softwares are overpriced.

How to set up Your Phone and a Bluetooth to work in your car

Posted by Oluwajoba Odesanya In , | 0 comments»
Bluetooth Head set

Having your phone hooked up to a Bluetooth device while you are driving is a great convenience and that is equal to a safe driving. There are no cables involved and you do not have to remember to reconnect whenever you get into the car.
In order to use your phone with a Bluetooth in your car you need

  • A Bluetooth enabled phone
  • A Bluetooth headset, a car speaker device or an in-dash radio with built-in Bluetooth. 
The speakerphone or in-dash system is preferred to the headset as you do not have to put it in your ear everytime
The in-dash type is also good as some have features like turning down your radio when you get a call.

Below are the steps

  1. Turn on Bluetooth on the two devices 
  2. Pair the devices. You can do this by making the phone to search for the Bluetooth device and then you can connect them when the search is successful.
  3. Some devices might prompt for a password. Most manufacturers use a default password of 0000
  4. The phone and speakerphone/headset should now be paired. 
  5. You should not need to pair your phone again once you have done it once.
