Phone numbers are a little like fingerprints. They can reveal a lot about a person, for example their name or where they live. If you have a missed call from an unknown phone number, you may want to identify the phone number of the person who tried to reach you before you dial that number.
Windows: NitroPDF Reader is a powerful free PDF tool, with PDF printing, conversion, annotation, image extraction, and more. Now Evernote users can send items from NitroPDF right into their notebooks, making for a handy one-two combo. Nitro is one of a batch of developers signing on with Evernote's Trunk initiative , and it makes sense. NitroPDF makes it easy to fill out PDFs without printing and re-scanning, as well as create a PDF from most documents and anything you can print. Once you can see a document, or just part of some text, in Nitro, you can send it to Evernote in the latest version.
As web apps become the norm, the Internet is fast becoming a series of usernames and passwords. Accounts make services more useful, but they can be a security threat if left unmonitored. If you’re not using a particular account anymore, and doubt that you ever will, it’s a good idea to delete that account.
Online free anti virus scan apps have been around for a while, and whilst they’re no match for standalone software they certainly have their uses. Perhaps you’re on an unfamiliar PC that’s acting a little strange? Or maybe your existing software has been disabled, and you’ve frantically restarted in Safe Mode looking for a solution.
At Maximum PC, computer hardware is our bread and butter. We review it, preview it, and just generally love to talk about it. Unfortunately, hardware becomes less important with each passing day, as more and more software moves onto the internet. We're not looking forward to the day that our PC's become Chrome OS-style thin client, but we have to admit, some web apps are pretty awesome. So to help you prepare for a future in the cloud, we've put together a list of 30 of our favorite web apps and services. We've tried to keep them on the lesser-known side, but a few of the classic have snuck their way in.
Windows only: Freeware system utility Unlocker deletes, moves, or copies locked files that you normally can't access, and the latest version finally adds much-needed support for 64-bit Windows. Once you've installed the application—avoiding the annoying toolbars and eBay shortcuts in the installer—you can right-click on any file that Windows won't allow you to delete and use the new Unlocker option to unlock any file handles, terminate processes that are holding onto the file, or even specify an option to happen on the next reboot for the most tricky operations. Note: Readers should note that there's a very annoying Bing toolbar screen during the installer, which you'll have to wait 30 seconds to skip, and then a set of eBay shortcuts that you'll have to uncheck.
