Extend Your Gingerbread Android Battery Life with Green Power

green Extend Your Gingerbread Android Battery Life with Green PowerA few days ago, I moved to using Gingerbread on my Android phone, and the feeling is just great. The slick UI effects are a vast improvement over Froyo and some new visual styles have come up as well. Overall, Gingerbread is here to rock.

However, the main problem with Gingerbread is that it lacks support for many apps. Some of them have not been released for Gingerbread yet and others do not plan to release anytime soon. A primary app for use on an Android phone is a battery saver. Juice Defender is undoubtedly the most developed and functional app for this. It has been around for a while and has improved vastly over time. However, its lack of Gingerbread support has been a setback for me, so I went on this hunt to find a decent Juice Defender alternative and came across the app Green Power.

Green Power lacks considerably in options that Juice Defender provides. However, for basic battery saving, it does the job and does it well. In this post, we will see how to install and use the Green Power app.

How To Erase Your Hard Drive Before You Recycle It

DBAN Logo How To Erase Your Hard Drive Before You Recycle ItIn years (and decades) past, people tended to destroy their old and obsolete computing equipment. Get a new computer? Well, then it’s time to throw the old one in the trash bin. These days, however, people tend to think a little more “environmentally”. Therefore, rather than throwing an old PC into the dump, we typically recycle it or give it to an organization which refurbishes computers and gives it to the less fortunate.

A Recycled Hard Drive

Overall, this trend is extremely positive. Computer parts are either reused or recycled, rather than abandoned. The one problem with a reused or recycled computer, however, relates to its hard drive.

Most individuals are familiar with what a hard drive is. For those who are uncertain, a hard drive is simply a piece of computer hardware (something physical found within your computer’s case) which is in charge of storing long-term data; data which isn’t deleted when you power off your machine for the night.

The problem with a recycled or reused hard drive is that it likely is not empty. In fact, it likely contains a large number of personal documents on it. Why? One would think that all you need to do is throw all of your files and folders into the recycle bin and erase them. Unfortunately, this is not good enough. Although the Windows user interface tells you that your files no longer exist, oftentimes they remain alive behind the scenes. Consequently, another individual would be able to make use of data recovery software in order to bring your documents back from the dead. Although this isn’t a life threatening problem, it is a little worrisome.
