Show Activity Feeds or Updates from Your Favorite Social Network in Windows Live Messenger

Did you know you can have the activity feeds/social stream or live updates from your favorite social network such as Facebook or LinkedIn appear in the latest version of Windows Live Messenger? Simply sign in to your Live Messenger account, select Add/Manager Services at the bottom right area of the application, and then choose a service you wish to integrate to (i.e., Facebook, MySpace, LinkedIn).

The application will ask you to sign in to the chosen service and give permission to integrate.

Growth in the Cloud

The growing acceptance of cloud computing is based not only on the cost savings that businesses are realizing. The abilities to respond to opportunities quickly and support remote workers are additional benefits of the switch to the cloud.

With cloud computing, businesses can tap into software and services as they need them, using an Internet connection and a web browser.

Use Your Android Phone Like a USB Key

If you own an Android phone, you can use it as a substitute for an external drive or a USB key. You can load files into your phone simply by plugging it in to a PC with a USB cable, then tapping on “Mount” when you are prompted by the system.

This mounts the internal storage of the device as an external drive relative to the PC, and you can easily drag and drop files or create folders on the device as you see fit.
