Create your own wifi hotspot on Windows 7 or 8

Create your own wifi hotspot on Windows 7 or 8

You don't need connectify or any other software for it. Also, you can save yourself from that 90 minutes counter in connectify. 

All you need to do is run the following two commands in cmd - 

Open cmd with Run as Administrator.

1) netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=wifiname key=wifipassword

2) netsh wlan start hostednetwork

Best solution - Make a batch file of it and just run the file every time when you start the pc. 

To make a batch file -

First write the commands on a notepad

Then save it with the extension bat.  e.g. wifi.bat

Your batch file is made and now execute the file with Admin Privileges.

Important - For this to work, your sharing should be on in network properties for the network/ethernet connection that you want to share through your wifi:

Go to Open Network and Sharing Centre ->Change Adapter Settings(On left panel)

Your wifi hotspot would be Microsoft Hosted Network Virtual Adaptor in the Network Connections.

Go to the properties of the LAN/ethernet/WiFi connection and make the changes accordingly.

Your wifi hotspot would be ready. :)

To stop the wifi hotspot - 
Write the following in command prompt : netsh wlan stop hostednetwork

Introducing the Android Wear

After months of rumors, Google has officially announced that it plans to extend Android to other wearable devices beyond Google Glass, and it’s starting with smart watches.
The company has announced Android Wear, a version of the operating system designed specifically for wearable devices.

The focus of Android Wear is in relevant contextual data, much of which you already get from Google Now like location-based weather, traffic data, reminders, travel info (airplane boarding passes, etc), and app notifications. There are the usual fitness tracking options that are already relatively standard on wearables, and interesting notifications like jellyfish warnings when you're at the beach. The interface is gesture-based, but quite a lot of the functionality seems to come from the voice command system, which does include the song recognition feature in Google Now.

Google has also started the rollout of the Android Wear SDK Developer Preview. Again, Google has been very careful to say that the SDK will allow developers to "extend" app functionality to wearables, meaning this is not a platform which will have standalone apps on it to start.

Google is working to make sure these watches aren't hideous: Fossil and other "fashion brands" will apparently offer watches using the operating system later this year.

How to Make an Easy E Bomb Using Notepad.

An E-bomb is a simple type of computer prank that tricks a friend (or enemy) into thinking his or her computer is being hacked, is infected with a virus, or is experiencing a serious error. The process of executing an E-bomb involves writing a special kind of file using notepad which contains commands that slow down the computer, crash the system, or merely startle the user, then tricking the user into opening the file. E-bombs can be anything from a minor annoyance to a system-destroying nightmare for the user; the E-bombs in this article are intended merely as innocuous pranks, so the worst they'll do is cause a computer to crash.

Open Infinite Windows:

Open Notepad and type the command as shown in the image.

Save the file as a batch file i.e. with an extension ".bat"

So your file name will look something like "loop.bat"

Now as soon as someone opens this file there will be a infinite no. of programs opening.
Something Like This:

You can also enter any of these :
  • iexplore.exe - Internet
  • calc.exe - Calculator
  • notepad.exe - Notepad
  • winword.exe - Word 2013
