Finding the Right Smartphone and Headphone now simplified

Choosing the best mobile or headphone set is always a headache!

Tons of options are out there and apparently, you don’t want to go through the time-consuming process of reading separate reviews.

That’s exactly why I have come up with this post to help you choose the best mobile or headphone without spending much time.

How to Choose the Best Mobile or Headphone?

If you have a lot of time to spare, I recommend reading review articles or watching review videos. But for a busy person, it may not be feasible.

I will show you how to get the best for you here.

  • #1. Determine the Budget

Whether you want to buy a mobile or headphone, all you should do first is to set a budget.

Once you decide the budget, you can have a look at these best mobile phones in India. You will see a bunch of much-appreciated smartphones over there.


 In case you want to buy a pair of headphones, here’s a list of best headphones in India. As the list is concise, you can grasp every feature without much time consumption.

  • #2. Check the User Reviews

Reading a full review is time-consuming. But you can check user reviews on different e-commerce platforms for honest user opinions.

Again it becomes a time sucking process given that there are many online marketplaces. Don’t worry! Check best phones under 20000 and best headphones under 2000 for all the user opinions under one roof.

                               


You can see on those pages that every segment has been divided specifically for the convenience of the audience. For the same reason, you can have a gist of the camera quality, performance, and features as well.

  • #3. Read List Articles

You are looking for a buying decision. So, I recommend you should read list posts like best headphones under 1000.

If you check only a post like Sound Magic ES 18 S review, you get to know about that product only. But once you read a list post with budget mention, you don’t have to search the entire content for price and features.

  • #4. Use Google

Last but not the least, you can seek the help of Google here. If your budget is ten thousand, you should search for best phones under 10000.

By this way, you will get tons of results. Moreover, Google may display some of the product names on the search result page itself.

Wrapping Up

I hope you know now how to reach a purchase decision for a headphone or mobile without spending much time.

As you just saw, I have given you six links to make the process even easier. Check those to get the options right in front of your eyes.

Make sure you check the features carefully. Like if you have two SIMs, you should buy a phone with dual SIM support.

Don’t forget to share this article with your friends on social media. Let them know how to make it easy to buy a new phone or headset.

3 Tips To Restore Deleted Files In Windows

how to recover deleted files

You are panicked!

When you realize significant files on your computer are not in the place you stored, you are terrified to the core given you have no choice to get it back from any third-party.

What can you do? Most of the people sit idle and bang their head on the wall.

Don’t worry! I have got you three tips to apply when you feel your files are missing.

Tips to Restore Deleted Files

The following are the three tips that helped me restore the deleted files.

  • #1. Search for the File

When you don’t see an important file in a directory you placed the same, it doesn’t mean the file was deleted. What if you don’t remember the folder? Or you might move the file into a new directory as well.

Almost every OS offers an inbuilt search feature using which you can find any file. But you should recollect the file name or at least a part of the name.

In case you don’t remember the file name, go with the file type (.jpg or .pdf). Still, it fetches you one heck of a job to filter the search result.

  • #2. Check Recycle Bin or Trash

Be it Windows, Mac or Linux, you get a specific location called Recycle Bin or Trash into which every deleted file goes. Operating systems are equipped with such a feature to avoid awkward file missing situations.

When you can’t find a file in a directory it should be in, open Recycle Bin ( the name is different on different OS). Hopefully, you can find the file there.

Bear in mind that this is not applicable if the delete button is pressed simultaneously with Shift or the file has been removed from the Bin.

#3. Install Disk Drill

Do you know what? Even if the tips given above don’t come to your rescue, you can restore the deleted files out of the blue.
Image Source - Cleverfiles FB Page


Yeah, you heard it right. All you want is an app called Disk Drill. No matter Windows or Mac you are using, you can seamlessly use this software to get the file back.

They have both the free and premium version. I recommend you to try their trial version that allows you to restore data up to 2 GB. Then, you can go for the paid version.

The user interface is so simple that you won’t need a learning curve. Moreover, there is quick and deep scanning mode for fast and accurate recovery.

  • Wrapping Up

See? The time machine wasn’t really an illusion.

Whenever you think an important file is missing from your computer, you should proceed to these three tips to get it back.

Even though the first two steps don’t help you, I am sure that you will be satisfied with the third one. You need to wait some time to finish the scan, though.

Don’t forget to share this article with your friends. They will thank you later.

If you want to improve your browsing experience, you can apply multiple hacks into chrome browser to speed it up faster. There are multiple hacks you can apply to your browser to make it faster.

The Chrome is much popular among business professionals due to its extensive features of extensions, which you can use to make the browsing experience more productive. You can see the lists of extensions in your browser by typing chrome://extensions/ in the URL space of your browser Or by clicking on chrome option menu on top right-> settings-> extensions

There you can find the list of all extensions you have downloaded. These extensions slow up your browsing speed by continuously sending data to the server. If you are not using any of these extensions or features such as pop-up blocker which is inbuilt in chrome then please uncheck them and delete it by clicking on trash button.

  • Updated Browser: 

With each new version of the browser there comes a variety of new features related to speed, privacy, user experience etc. The developer team tries hard to make it faster than the previous version to improve quality. If you are using an older version of the browser then surely the browsing speed is much slower than the newer version. The latest version of Google Chrome is 52.0.2743.116

Or you can type chrome://help/ in the URL space to check your browser version and update(if required).

  • Clear Browsing Data:

 All Browsers keep saving all your data on its memory to help you provide better browsing experience. Primarily there are three types of memory which a browser saves i.e.:-

Cache: It is related with content and images that you visit.

Cookies: It keeps track of your personal information such as your login id and password on different accounts.

History: It keeps the record of URLs of the pages that you have visited in the past.
Also, there are other data that is being stored in your browser memory. Regularly deleting them improves the speed of your browser considerably.

You can delete the browsing data by typing chrome://settings/clearBrowserData on URL space of your browser or by shortcut key Ctrl+H.

Also, you can use Incognito mode of your browser by Shortcut key Ctrl+Shift+N. This is a good way to use the Internet especially in unsafe Zone like- Internet Café because Incognito mode automatically clears your browsing data.

  • Keyboard Shortcuts: 

The Keyboard shortcut key saves a lot of your time and makes your browsing experience livelier. Although there are numerous shortcut keys in chrome, using a few of them which you frequently use could save a lot of your precious time. 

 


  • Remove Unnecessary Plug-in: 

Unlike the extensions in Chrome, there are also a lot of plugins that a user downloads and uses. These also occupy a lot of memory in chrome’s directory and reduce the browsing speed. If you don’t use these plug-in then it is advised that you should permanently delete it. 



You can see the list of the plug-in by typing chrome://plugins/ in the URL space.

  • Fast Open/Close Tabs: 

Every version of chrome contains flags. These are experimental and secret features developed by Chrome’s Developer team which might work for all users.



This option improves the browsing speed as the response time taken by the user to open or close a tab is improved. You can enable this feature on your browser by adding chrome://flags/ once there, look for - #enable-fast-unload in the URL space.

You’ll have to first enable it and then relaunch the browser to make it effective.

  • Canvas Features: 

These features allow Chrome browser to use canvases for boosting the load time and improve the result.


To make it work you have to enter chrome://flags/ and then find out - #enable-experimental-canvas-features in the URL space of browser. Then you’ll have to enable it and relaunch the browser to make it work.

  • Prefetch Resources: 

The prefetch feature of browser automatically loads the sites, which you are most likely to visit by using prediction service. It also completes the searches and URL you type on the URL space. This improves the loading time considerably and thus the browsing speed improves. 

You can enable these features by clicking on chrome menu on the top right corner ->settings ->advanced settings->privacy menu.


Some of the users might find these features already enabled on their browser.

  • Raster Threads: 

All of the websites uses images to improve the appearance and user experience. The use of image also causes lots of excessive data transfer between the servers, that’s why the sites filled with lots of images takes the time to load. Raster graphics uses pixels to generate an image. Almost all the websites use raster threads and raster images for fast transfer of data. It is a great way to boost up the speed of surfing as everyone likes to visit websites full of images.


In URL space of browser you can simply put chrome://flags/ and then look for these details - #num-raster-threads. Then in the drop down list, you’ll have to select 4 from the options. Thereafter you’ll have to relaunch the browser to make it work.

  • Maximum Interest Area tiles & Bookmark: 

The Tiles and Bookmark are a great way to navigate you fast based on your interest of websites. Chrome browser show you boxes of sites as per your pastime or surfing history. Also, you can keep the websites you visit frequently as Bookmark by shortcut key Ctrl+D , next time a new tab is opened ,you will find the bookmark tab listed there or you can open that by Ctrl+Shift+B.

You can also effectively use the tiles by increasing them to a maximum by typing chrome://flags/ and look for the data - #max-tiles-for-interest-area in URL space and in the drop-down list select an option as 512.

Apart from these hacks, there are several hacks related to flag on the chrome that is experimental. You can use these flags but all of them may not work with your browser. If you face problem working with these flags then don’t worry. You can disable them anytime by repeating the same procedure.

Review of TopNotepad - Cloud invoicing, accounting and CRM solution for freelancers and SMBs

Image Source- Topnotepad Facebook page
Are you a freelancer or an SMB owner? Then you know how tedious it is to keep a record of all your clients and customers.

And the ironical fact is that we can never overlook keeping the record as it serves as the official document to claim our remuneration.

If you are a freelancer or an SMB owner who finds it difficult to document professional activities, I have got something for you.

  • Introducing TopNotepad

TopNotepad is specially built for freelancers and small or medium-sized business owners. Their premade templates for different document types make our job easier in recording every action.

Are you interested in knowing them further? Here you go!

  • Features of TopNotepad

Mainly they offer five types of professional document creators (or services) about which you can read below.

#1. Invoice and Billing

As a freelancer, you know the importance of invoices, don’t you? Once you finish a project, you need to send an invoice to the client to get your payment.

Truth be told ‘invoice creation is an art.' If you do it indifferently, chances are your payment may get delayed as well.

But TopNotepad’s dedicated invoice creation tool takes away a tremendous work from you. You can create an invoice within a couple of minutes there.

After entering the work and client details, you will be able to generate payment receipts and get it sent to your customers without downloading it. Also, it is possible to set reminders to reach out to a client who hasn’t processed the payment yet.

The invoice dashboard provides a brief idea of all your invoices.

You can export your invoices to Excel formats for your future purposes. And, they are available to be downloaded in PDF too.

Here in TopNotepad, you will never find it difficult to change Invoice style as well.

#2. Expenses Management

Invoices serve as a reference for your yet-to-get payments. And, it conveys the pending amount to your clients as well. So, in a freelancer’s perspective, it is related to the income.

But one should keep track of his/her expenses as well. No matter how much you make, you will never find even a penny in your hand if you spend money without planning and recording.

Just like I said in the previous section, you will have an expense dashboard that displays the summary.

As we all know, not every expense are the same. You spend money on different things. That’s why TopNotepad has integrated different expense categories to help you record with maximum accuracy.

And, you can even link your invoices with the costs. The file upload feature allows you to upload your receipts into your expense sheet so that you won’t have to keep a lot of papers.

#3. Online Leads Management and CRM

Managing and nurturing leads are important for any business because a single lead can pave the way to a whopping sale sooner or later.

You can upload leads into the interface on a bulk basis. And, set reminders to do specific tasks about it.

The notes feature inside the interface helps you save notes for future reference.

In case you share your TopNotepad account with anyone, it allows you to allocate the leads.

#4. Online Accounting

No, you don’t need a professional accountant to keep a record of all your financial transactions.

Just manage invoices and expenses on TopNotepad. Then, the app itself takes care of everything to log your income and expenses.

Based on them, it gives you an insight on your profit and loss as well. To create a balance sheet, you only have to fill a few basic details.

And, you can manage cash book on this tool too.

#5. Estimates and Quotations

Not all the clients are the same. Some people want a custom quote before starting the work. That’s why you should understand how to create different types of documents.

Estimates and quotations on TopNotepad provide you with all the options plus a unique function to convert a quote into an invoice.

#6. Easy to Use
Unlike most of the expense tracking and invoice creation tools out there, TopNotepad has an unbelievably simple interface that you won’t find it difficult to find any option or use it.

The ease of use is at its best here.

  • Pricing

TopNotepad has three different packages; free, pond and lake. The first one has some limitations whereas the last two plans are premium with about zero constraints.

It’s a tool to create a free invoice.

  • Final Verdict

Are you a freelancer?

Well, then you might have already realized the value of such a tool. Once you subscribe to a premium package, no one can limit you from creating flamboyant invoices.

In my opinion, it is an all-in-one tool for both freelancers and SMB owners.
