40+ Apps & Tools To Customize Your Facebook Pages Facebook now has over 800 million active users around the world. If it were a country, it would be the third largest in the world (right behind China and India), and more than twice the size of the United States. So it’s pretty much vital for anyone trying to promote a product, service, event, or cause to create a Facebook page. While other social networks (Google+ among them) are making gains, Facebook is still the largest and most popular out there, and that’s unlikely to change in the immediate future (and besides, Google+ doesn’t even allow brand pages yet). One of the biggest mistakes brands make when creating Facebook pages is to just use the default tabs and default content. The answer to this common problem is to make use of all the custom content applications and tabs available for Facebook pages. In this guide, we’ll show you some of the best apps for Facebook pages and how to best use them. More related posts: Customizable Tabs First Impression Welcome Tab TabMaker Social Candy Owjo

Researcher Releases Smart Meter Hacking Tool Security consulting firm SecureState today released a new open source hacking tool that it claims will let security researchers and penetration testers verify the security of electric utility smart meters being installed in millions of homes around the country. The tool, called Termineter, is available for public download from SecureState's website and will be demonstrated at the BSides security event in Las Vegas next week. The company had earlier sent out a stripped down version of the tool to a limited number of individuals. Security consultancy InGuardians had planned to publicly release details of a similar tool called OptiGuard at the Shmoocon security conference a few months ago. InGuardian is scheduled to disclose details of its tool at the Black Hat security conference also being held in Las Vegas next week. Power companies and utilities will be able to use Termineter to identify and validate internal flaws that make the meters vulnerable to hacking and tampering, he said.

16 PC Mysteries Solved! Why does my Windows desktop look weird on my HDTV? It can be terribly frustrating to run a cable from a good HDTV to a PC graphics board and get skewed proportions, faded colors, and slightly blurry images. Your HDTV might not perform well as a monitor for several reasons. Second, the native resolution of your HDTV may not match your Windows desktop as configured. Third, an older graphics board driver may assume that an HDMI connection must be to a TV, and it may react by underscanning the image from your PC to fit it within the borders of the display, making your Windows desktop look squished on a big 1080p PC monitor. Finally, using an analog VGA cable to connect your HDTV to your PC can allow noise or other interference to disrupt the signal coming from your PC, thereby worsening the screen's image quality. What is UEFI, and why should I care? The Unified Extensible Firmware Interface is a new firmware interface specification that is designed to replace the familiar BIOS interface.

How to Make Your Own Network Cables Although it’s easy to head to the electronics store to buy network cables, making do with cables of predetermined lengths can be a problem. More often than not, premade cables are either too short (and require coupling) or too long (in which case, you have to tie up excess cabling and tuck it away somewhere). The end result is usually a mess of extra network cable, wrapped and bundled up alongside your devices and network switches. It works, but it isn't ideal, and it looks horrible. You don't have to deal with premade network cables of incorrect lengths, however. Getting Started To make your own network cables, you need some raw CAT 5, 5e, or 6 cable (a composite cable consisting of four twisted pairs of internal wires), some RJ45 connectors, and a proper crimping/wire-cutting tool. The cost of a network-wiring toolkit may be prohibitive to people who want to make only a few cables. Wiring Schemes You'll find a couple of standard wiring schemes and types of network cables.
