Android: Smart WiFi Toggler is a free utility that automatically learns where your preferred wireless networks are located, and when you approach their location, will turn on wi-fi and join those networks. When you leave the network's range, the app will turn off your phone's wi-fi radio so you don't waste battery searching for networks while you move around. If you frequently switch between wi-fi at home or the office and 3G/4G on the go, you know it sucks to look down at your phone only to see you left wi-fi on while you're driving and your battery has suffered as a result.
The word "disk defrag" is typically used to refer to the Microsoft Windows utility called Disk Defragmenter . It is designed to solve a problem that occurs because of the way hard disks store data. If you have read the article How Hard Disks Work , then you know three key facts about hard disks: Hard disks store data in chunks called sectors . If you imagine the surface of the disk divided into rings (like the rings of a tree), and then imagine dividing each ring into pie-slices, a sector is one pie-slice on one ring. Each sector holds a fixed amount of data, like 512 bytes.

Yesterday I received an email from Kelly offering to exchange links with this blog. “I just took a look at your website Johnhaydon and I find it quite relevant with my partner’s website, so I’m really interested in knowing if you would agree on placing a simple link to it. In exchange,I could offer you a link here…”
Welcome to our weekly edition of what’s hot in social media news . To help you stay up-to-date with social media , here are some of the news items that caught our attention. What’s New This Week?

One million Apple UDIDs (Universal Device IDs) were released to the public today, along with Notification Center tokens, device names, and device IDs, and while none of the data is personal information, it can potentially be tied back to device owners, names, and addresses. According to Antisec, the group that released the data, the one million is just part of over 12 million UDIDs they obtained from an FBI-owned laptop compromised in March 2012. The total dump reportedly also contains names, addresses, cellphone numbers, and other information about the device owners. Unfortunately, if you own an Apple device, there's nothing you can really do at this point.
Facebook appears to be preparing an option for advertisers to target users by email address, user ID or phone number, based on an option that was temporarily visible in the Power Editor tool. Sources familiar with Facebook’s ad plans previously told us that the company was working with some premium advertisers to target audiences by email address, though we had not heard about the UID and phone number options. These are powerful new opportunities for businesses to reach their existing customers and leads, who may be increasingly difficult to reach through traditional email and telemarketing campaigns. If this test rolls out to all Power Editor users and the Ads API, companies will be able to remarket to people through News Feed and other Facebook ad units. Some Power Editor users temporarily had access to a new “Custom Audiences” tab today. The tab originally appeared next to the “Page Posts” tab, but soon disappeared.
As betaworks and Digg both announced on their blogs, we are taking over Digg and turning it back into a startup. What they didn’t mention is that we’re rebuilding it from scratch. In six weeks. On August 1, after an adrenaline and caffeine-fueled six weeks, we’re rolling out a new v1. With this launch, we’re taking the first step towards (re)making Digg the best place to find, read and share the most interesting and talked about stories on the Internet — and we want your help . Huh… who is “we”?

Once you let someone know you're technically savvy, the chances of you becoming their main point of contact for all tech support increases greatly. If you've happened to have made your career in a computer-based industry, the problem intensifies. Through the years of being such an on-call tech-support person for a variety of different skill levels and machines, I've amassed quite a bit of gear that I keep on hand to tackle most situations. Here's a look into my recovery toolkit, which will hopefully help you build yours. A warning: not all of this stuff is free, but I've used all of it at one point.
Three has updated the modem it uses for its Mobile Wi-Fi (or Mi-Fi as some people call it) service to the Huawei E585 model, the older one being the 3 Mi-Fi Mobile Wi-Fi (Huawei E5830) . Confused? You shouldn't be, but is it just a number change or is there a reason to ask for an upgrade? If you were to quickly glance at the two side-by-side you would struggle to see the difference when turned off. They are both the same pebble size, both feature a display at the top and a big "3" logo at the bottom and both offer microSD card support, allowing you to expand your storage options. So what actually is the difference?
