Windows: Microsoft made some useful improvements to Windows Explorer in Windows 8, but they also (inexplicably) took some things away. OldNewExplorer gives you the best of both worlds: use the Windows 8 features you like, and bring back the Windows 7 features you miss.
OldNewExplorer is easy to install: just extract the necessary files to a folder on your system, open up the portable preferences app, and click the Install button. This will install the necessary system files to tweak Windows Explorer. From there, you can check and uncheck the features you want, so you have the perfect Explorer for you.
With OldNewExplorer, you can ditch the ribbon, bring back the details pane at the bottom of the window, and more:
If you want to uninstall the tweak, just open up the configuration window and click the Uninstall button.

What do you think about the idea concerning electronic cigarettes? Well, the Supersmoker Club has recently introduced an electronic cigarette that will feature Bluetooth functionality integrated within, so that the person who is attempting to wean off tobacco-laden cigarettes will be able to receive incoming calls as well as listen to music – while smoking, that is. I know what you are thinking at the moment – why, I am doing that right now, smoking an actual ciggie (or an electronic cigarette) while my smartphone or Bluetooth headset is activated. What’s the difference? Let us check out what the Supersmoker Bluetooth offers right after the jump.
The Supersmoker Bluetooth has been described to be a revolutionary product which will enable the smokers to experience nicotine free puffs, all the while use the very same device to receive incoming calls and listen to favorite music via Bluetooth. It works this way, there will be a Bluetooth chipset embedded in it, allowing it to hook up to your smartphone or to play music from your predetermined playlist. According to the team of developers who integrated the Bluetooth connectivity into the e-cig, this allows smokers to easily make and receive calls with their e-cig, now how about that? At least it means having one less device to hold in your hand at that point in time.
Below the battery lies a trio of buttons that have their special function each. The middle button will activate the Supersmoker Bluetooth, where upon recognition of the device by a smartphone, they will be paired. Incoming calls will vibrate the e-cig while alerting you with a noise, where you press the middle button to answer the call thanks to the built-in microphone. Apart from that, there will also be volume control buttons integrated within. The Supersmoker Bluetooth is compatible with any Android or iOS-powered device or tablet.

Chrome/Firefox: Ever hate how when you first open a GIF, it loads super slowly with choppy animation? It kind of ruins the GIF experience. But GIF Delayer is an easy fix that stops the animation from playing till the image is completely loaded.
The extension, available for Chrome and Firefox, does exactly what it says: your GIF animations will be delayed so that they play properly the first time you see them. I tried it out with several GIFs, including a page full of them, and it works perfectly. On Chrome, you can even pair it up with Paused to pause your GIF animations.

Windows: Over time, your Windows PC will have accumulated a whole bunch of unwanted programs, services and other things that slow it down. FreeFixer sorts and lists everything on your hard drive and offers more information about each to help decide whether it’s needed.
Once FreeFixer runs a full scan, it will give you a long list of items like registry startups, scheduled tasks, processes, services, namespace service provides, SVCHost and Explorer modules, Firefox extensions and searh engines, and more. Each item comes with an icon, full file path, and a “more info” link to find out further details about that item. After randomly clicking 15 of them, I’m satisfied with the information FreeFixer is able to give about the items.
To safeguard you from deleting things you shouldn’t, FreeFixer does not list critical system files. It further marks files from trusted software publishers (like Apple, Trend Micro, Microsoft, etc.) as “trusted files” in green. These too can’t be deleted and they won’t appear when you generate a log file. The advantage of this is that when you publish a log file on a forum to identify a problem, it’s easier for those helping you.
FeedFixer can be scheduled to run these scans periodically in the background. It also has a File Nuker utility to delete any unwanted file on your next reboot, as well as a Windows System File Checker tool.

In the past, Gmail has attempted to make it easy to unsubscribe from email mailing lists, but the option has been buried under spam reporting (which may not always be what you want to do). Now, though, you can unsubscribe to many lists with a single click.
The new feature places an Unsubscribe button next to the sender’s address in Gmail when it detects that the email is coming from a mailing list. Given that this is automated, there’s no 100% guarantee that it will always work, so if you keep getting emails from a particular source, check to see if the email has its own unsubscribe process (or mark it as spam).
