SnapPea

snappea_iconManage your Android device with your PC with this must have Windows utility.

At times, I can be very old school about my mobile devices. My smartphone isn’t a dedicated computing device. Its what I use when I’m away from my laptop, whether its docked or not. As such, it’s a companion device and not as mission critical as, say, for someone who only emails or surfs with it, as opposed with some other device. My iPhone is nearly always connected to my Mac unless I’m away from my desk.

iPhones have iTunes. Until recently, Windows MOBILE (not Windows Phone) devices had ActiveSync. If you have an Android device, as so many users do, you don’t have anything official from Google at this time to act as a hub for your device. This is where SnapPea comes in. Its an Android sync-hub for Windows PC’s; and it may just be the app you’ve been looking for.

SnapPea allows you to manage your Android smartphone or tablet from your PC. You can organize your contacts, music, and pictures from the comfort of your desktop. When you’re ready, you can quickly and easily transfer any file to your device.

If you’re an iTunes user and want to use your iTunes content on your Android device, you can easily import your iTunes library to your Android device, too. Now, switching to Android doesn’t mean you have to leave all of your content behind. You can take your music and videos with you.

SnapPea is a decent sync manager for Android. You can use it to download thousands of apps to your desktop, allowing you to save your data plan for when you’re out and about. The desktop app also allows you to send text messages from a full-size keyboard, making it easier to communicate with friends and loved ones.

Is the Internet REALLY Required?

internet-marketing-strategy-traffic1Its been an interesting weekend…without internet service. It really makes me wonder…is the Internet really required?

Its been an interesting weekend. Aside from being Independence Day weekend here in The States, its also my wife’s birthday. Our boys, wanted to buy mom a tree for the yard, and after we brought it home, it was my job to plant it.

Unfortunatey for me, my wife picked a location that was directly in between the cable CO and the connection with our house, and so… yeah. The buried cable got cut as I was digging the hole for the new tree. Comcast, my cable internet provider told me that they wouldn’t be able to come out to the house to repair the cut cable until Sunday.

During this time, however, we’ve had no connectivity outside of the internal network in the house. I can access my resources – my multiple NAS drives and game consoles – but nothing outside, like the internet or any other outside network.

Back in the late 1980’s and throughout the 1990’s, the internet wasn’t required to be part of your computing experience. Today, I’ve got Dropbox, Google Drive, SkyDrive, Backblaze (an online backup program), Google Apps, as well as any other number of online services that I connect to and use every time I turn on my computer. Without them, computing seems really silly.

Its amazing how much you depend on the online world to make your computing experience whole. Thankfully, my access is restored. Comcast came out and reran a cable from the CO to my house; and while I could have used my iPhone or Freedom Pop to provide a connection to the internet, there, you have to worry about how much you’ve used and how much you have left. With my cable connection, bandwidth is pretty much unlimited.

Garena – Connecting World Gamers

Chat and game with your friends using this gaming platform for Windows.

GAR-01Gaming is one of the biggest reasons behind computer sales. One of the biggest trends in gaming right now is the need to communicate with team mates within your gaming party. That’s one of the reasons why I like Garena. It’s a gaming communications platform for Windows.

Garena is a game platform similar to an instant messenger. Garena allows gamers to develop buddy lists, to chat with friends and to check on game progress and achievements. Gamers are able to form groups or clans, and chat with multiple gamers simultaneously through public or private channels. Garena has also provided a great GTalk platform which is useful for gamers to interact with.

Like other online game services, Garena uses Shells for a virtual currency. Gamers can create their own unique identity by customizing their avatar or changing their names. Users can also use Shells to purchase Gold memberships for instant access to the platform anytime, to create clans, or to buy themselves back in to the platform or to a game or clan.

Garena is a decent PC gaming platform. It allows you to not only play but to communicate with clans and hoards while you play with and against them. It’s a bit on the pricey side, however, as 3000 shells cost $60 USD, and Gold membership will cost you 1900 shells a year.

Information on what games are available and what they cost, over and above your gold membership fee are unclear, and not readily available on the site. Its difficult to understand what might be available and what it might cost.

Secure your home or businesses internet connection with Wifi Protector

Whilst a wireless connection is an easier and more convenient way to get on the internet, using one puts your personal information at risk of being seen by others.

Most security software just protects your device from viruses. The WiFi Protector protects your connection from hackers at all times. It uses 256 bit encryption technology, enough to protect you from identity theft and other internet crimes.

The software also hides your unique IP address, giving you anonymity and the freedom to surf the internet reassured of your privacy. With your IP address hidden you can access restricted websites censored to you in your area.

The main menu displays all the information you need to check your connection is protected. You can monitor what devices are connected to the same network as you, making sure only devices you trust are on the same WiFi connection as you. The software runs in the background of your computer, notifying you whenever a new device connects to your network.

Whilst wireless internet makes it easier for you to surf the web, it also makes it easier for hackers to access your personal information. It is vital to encrypt your information to keep it protected from others. The WiFi Protector is an easy way to protect your network at all times.
