UnifiedRemoteUnified Remote  nice app which allows you to control a PC (or a Mac), in my case my laptop using you home network and your phone.  Install the app, drop the appropriate file on your PC/Mac and away you go.

In this case, in my home cinema which allowed me to watch an .avi on the big screen with surround sound.  It’s on sale this weekend at £0.80, bargain…

Would you like to know more?

teracopy3Faster, smarter and more informative than the standard File Copy/Move dialogue and bringing Win 8 features to Vista and Win 7 (It also works on Win 8), oh and free…

  • Copy files faster TeraCopy uses dynamically adjusted buffers to reduce the seek times. Asynchronous copying speeds up the file transfer between two physical hard drives.
  • Pause and resume file transfer activities Pause the copy process at any time in order to free up system resources and continue with a single click.
  • Error recovery In case of a copy error, TeraCopy will try several times to recover and, in the worse case scenario, will simply skip the file, not terminating the entire transfer.
  • Interactive file list TeraCopy shows the failed file transfers and lets you fix the problem and recopy only the problem files.
  • Shell integration TeraCopy can completely replace the Explorer copy and move functions, in turn enabling you to work with files as usual.
  • Full Unicode support.
  • Windows 8 x64 support.

I remotely upgraded the firmware on my Synology Diskstation DS214SE this week to version 5 which comes with an interface overhaul as well as updates to all the packages.  It all seems to be working well despite British Gas causing no less than 5 power outages whilst installing the new boiler/tank etc according to the log file.

Currently I only use a couple of packages:

All of which are now fully supported, video & Audi streaming to your phone for the latter two.  Obviously they use your DATA allowance up, so I would limit music & video when connected to Wifi only.  Essentially you now have mobile access to all files on the NAS regardless of where you are, so a personal dropbox with no nags to link friends for upgrades and so on.

I am testing DS Photo but it’s not very intelligent and wants me to drop batches of file in rather than folder trees.  Seeing as they are stored logically and I can access them using DS File, this one will wait for updates before I bother using it in anger.  Well, that and the fact I have 12 years of digital photos in 26,309 Files, 285 Folders weighing in at 93 Gig…

Just a couple of updates to my Rainmeter skins.

Dashboard1.7.2

Dashboard gets a couple of graphical tweaks and a fix or two for Wifi & battery meters.

WOT 2.4.2

World of Tanks changed their stats page code for the umpteenth time forcing me to update the webparser.

unnamedClearly every new phone deserves a new game, mine is Smash Hit which rather neatly encapsulates the point of the game.

Take a surreal journey through an otherworldly dimension, move in harmony with sound and music and smash everything in your path! This experience requires focus, concentration, and timing to not only travel as far as you can, but also break the beautiful glass objects that stand in your way.

Smash Hit for Android

Smash Hit for IOS

unnamedAbout 2 years too late MS actually made MS Office freely available at no cost for iPhone and Android users…

Microsoft Office Mobile is the official Office companion optimized for your Android phone. You can access, view and edit your Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel and Microsoft PowerPoint documents from virtually anywhere. Documents look like the originals, thanks to support for charts, animations, SmartArt graphics and shapes. When you make quick edits or add comments to a document, the formatting and content remain intact.*

What’s shiny and new with buttons on it and I have one…IMG_9577-1

Mostly playing with some of the new features with the massively improved Blinkfeed (now available from the play store for all Android users) and the bizare decision to make the clock white in the day and dark in the night, so looks extremely odd alongside Google Play as you can see on the right.

The handset comes with a cover (not that I will use it) and is simply beautiful to look at and makes the plastic Samsung offering look tatty in comparison.

Amazingly there are custom ROMs available already and I will given them a week or two for the early adopters to identify before applying one.  This will allow me to remove all the crap I don’t want or use like Twatter, FaceBonk, Goggle+ and so on.

Anyhow, early days and I am pretty happy with it so far…
