So here’s the thing. You’re out of Apple’s official charger. And you need to charge your iPad/any iDevice from PC. Usually, iPad charges when you connect it through USB. However, when there’s not sufficient amount of power, iPad will not charge and Instead it’ll say, Not Charging on the top.

A researcher at Bangladesh Agriculture Research Institute (BARI) claims that he has invented a cheap and effective way to detect formalin and other harmful chemicals in food/fish effectively and under 10 minutes. What’s great? It’s super cheap. You can test formalin in just 5 seconds for 1 taka!
The researcher, inventor of the effective way of detecting Formalin in a short period of time, Md Faruq Bin Hossain Yamin, says that his unique color reaction examining costs just Tk 1. (YES, you’re seeing it right! 1 TAKA)
He said two solutions will be used for the test. They are
“It is possible to trace formalin and other harmful chemicals within five seconds using these solutions,” he told.
He, nevertheless, refused to tell publicly the names of the chemicals which are used to manufacture the solutions. They are intellectual properties of an institution.
Yamin exoressed his vision that the retail and wholesale businessmen would be encouraged to adopt the system as it cost only Tk 1 per test.
Mr. Yamin, the scientist told that the available instruments for such tests are expensive and often produces controversial results.
Presently, 87 kit boxes, supplied by the food ministry, are used to trace the presence of formalin. This is not enough to meet the requirements.
He said for the tests, a food item will have to be placed in clear water. From there, a single drop of water has to be mixed with the ‘complex solutions’.
“The complex solution will change colour in presence of formalin or other harmful chemicals,” he said.
“Otherwise, the solutions will retain its usual pink colour.”
“With this technology, it will be possible to shun the use of chemicals in food items within two years,”
So we really hope retailers and businessmen will contact Yamin & will produce the complex solutions for the general people. The sooner it is available for public, the better it is. Isn’t it will be great to go to baazar and test the fishes whether it is formalin free or not. People will only buy the fish as well as other food products if Yamin’s test give a negative result! Can’t wait to see this product on market for general availability. But this kind of project often gets stuck up because of proper investment. I really hope, for Yamin, it won’t happen. But who knows? In a country like ours, everything can happen.

Windows 8, along with Surface RT, is the biggest and most riskiest yet ambitious product Microsoft has ever worked on since the original Xbox over ten years ago. On the face of it, the company has significantly changed the way users use Windows , with a user-interface that is targeted more towards touch input on tablets rather than your traditional mouse and touchpad.
The Start button has been a part of Windows since the mid 90s, so removing it after all these years is bound to cause confusion and invite negative criticism from loyal users.
Well, I’m here to tell you that it isn’t that bad. As a matter of fact, after using Windows 8 since the RTM leak, if I were given the option to choose between the Start menu of Windows 7 or the Start screen on Windows 8, I’d opt for the new Windows 8 Start Screen. Here’s why:
it’s dynamic, smooth as butter,
works well (with the right input device) and
has potential to do something even more revolutionary with future updates.
Some users aren’t really ready to adopt the change. They’ll still move their mouse into the left bottom corner to bring back the good old Windows 7 Startup Menu. Now here’s my post is to bring back the old Start menu on Windows 8.
How To Bring Back Start Menu on Windows 8 Free?
There are lots of 3rd party applications are popping up to bring back the old Start Menu on Windows 8. The most early of this batch is probably Stardock’s Start8. It was good when it was first released. However, they made the software PAID for a while. So I’m not recommending to use it.
Bring Back Windows 7 Start Menu on Windows 8 with Iobit’s Start Menu 8
The Best Start Menu Replacement for Windows 8 is START MENU 8.
It’s completely free. Does all the things we were used to in Windows 7 & completely free. Besides, Iobit makes really good software. I’ve been satisfied with their PC Utility tool (Advance System Care) for a couple of years.
StartMenu8 is specially designed for Windows 8. It offers a perfect solution for users who work with Windows Start Menu all the time and are not accustomed to the new Metro start screen in Windows 8. This smart tool brings back both the start button and Windows Start Menu, and offers the option to skip Metro start page, allowing users who only work on desktop to boot to Windows 8 desktop directly. It’s the best start menu replacement for Windows8.
If yes, then read on! You are having the exact same issue that I was having last night! My drive label changed to NOKIA & it was not changing.
Since, I use Windows 8 & update regularly my Windows Defender, I couldn’t think that I was virus affected. However, I searched both in Google & Bing to solve the problem but there wasn’t any solve online. So I started my work to fix it.
Drive Label Changed To Nokia? Not Changing?
Yeah! That’s what happened with me.
Solve ‘NOKIA’ Drive Label Not Changing Problem!
The issue was created by some information placed in System Volume Information of that drive. Since Windows doesn’t allow to delete that drive, you have to download any Linux distro, boot it live & go to each drive of yours & you have to delete 3 folders (including autorun.inf if any).
Comodo Dragon is a Web Browser built by Comodo, the well-known company that is serving Comodo Firewall, Comodo Internet Security & other security tools for a long time.
Why Comodo Dragon?
Comodo Dragon is just based on Chromium Open Source Project (Chromium is the source which on Google Chrome is based) If you are a Google Chrome user, then you certainly going to like it. Because Comodo Dragon looks & feels just like our well known Google Chrome. Comodo Dragon eliminates Chrome’s usage tracking and some other potentially privacy-compromising features, and provides additional security measures, such as indicating the authenticity and relative strength of a website’s SSL certificate. I’ll be reviewing Comodo Dragon 21.1 which is based on Chromium 21.xxx It’s apparent that Comodo Dragon runs on an out dated version. At the time of writing this article, current stable version of Google Chrome is 22.xxx I don’t blame Comodo for this. It’s tough to catch up with Google’s ultra frequent updates, but still they are doing good job in updating Comodo Dragon as often as possible. For most of the part, both Comodo Dragon and Chrome are almost most same, except for few features. Especially, for Privacy and security features.
(A screenshot of Comodo Dragon 21 on Windows 8)
Why You’ll Use Comodo Dragon?
The answer is simple. To have a better privacy. Comodo Dragon itself says it has these 4 unique features over Chrome:
Secure browsing with no crashes
Lightning fast with low PC resources
Easy to start with
Convenient and flexible plugins
The first two is pretty important to me. Surely, Chrome is lightening fast since it’s birth. But Chrome sometimes cause crashes. Besides, Chrome cannot run with low PC resources. Furthermore, Chrome’s usage tracking and some other potentially privacy-compromising features can be ignored with this browser. As Comodo Dragon built right from the Chromium Open Source project, it features the first two essential features.

Comodo Dragon – Wrap Up
In a nutshell Comodo Dragon is a
A Chromium technology-based Browser that offers you all of Chrome’s features PLUS the unparalleled level of security and privacy you only get from Comodo. Including a greater level of privacy than Chromium technology offers.
