It is actually a known fact that there is an issue with VirtualBox and the attached USB devices that many of us are trying to use in the virtual machine. Here is a real-life example:

I am a 100% Linux user and I have a photo printer that Linux can’t recognize. Let’s say that I want to print some photos quickly, to give them to someone. I have a Windows installation in a virtual machine just for this reason (sad, I know) and I want to access my printer, which is connected via a USB port. To my surprise, I can see the printer in the USB device list of VirtualBox, but I can’t access it (very frustrating). Firing up Firefox and searching on Google for a fix takes too long, because there are many old tutorials that teach you how to modify various files or change permissions, etc. What to do? Well, below is the answer to the endless VirtualBox – USB issue (and it’s pretty damn simple too!).

This tutorial was created mostly for my needs, but I am sure that many of you will find it very helpful. Ready? More »

Today I am going to share a very good news with all the readers. There has been some limiting features in Apple phone products like they cannot forward any message or they can be connected through Bluetooth to only those device which are apple product, but I feel slowly and slowly they are removing them. They have made an endeavor to solve this problem.

Generally in all the good phones from Nokia, Motorola and other brands in out country, we can connect out laptop or PC with them to use internet, we just need a USB data cable or Bluetooth connection and then you can easily surf the internet with the help of that device and the service provider supporting that device. But this feature was not available with iPhone, as you can use internet on those devices but you cannot use those device to connect your Laptop or PC with internet. But then, if anyone has to survive in this competing market then improvement is necessary and this goes true for Apple also. Hence they decided to advance the number of features in their iPhone and iPad by introducing another feature which has been mentioned below. More »

Sometimes, you want that you system should get switched off automatically, especially when you are not monitoring that system. It often happens that the tools commonly used by the users do not provide the sufficient options for the system shutdown. Thus, they are supposed to be specific while leaving their system for automatic shutdown.

The freeware which I will be reviewing today will solve this problem by allotting you large number of options for automatic system shut down, the name of this tool is DShutdown.

This tool has large number of features, which I will be explaining later. I have already reviewed a similar tool knows as ‘Shutdown Timer’ but it has less features as compared to DShutdown. This tool can list out the number of systems present on your network and can shutdown them, only if you already have the right to do so. More »
