A “cache” is a temporary place where developers store data of a particular website or App. When you will access that specific website or app again the data from the cache files are used to load the pages instead of downloading it again – because going to the network is slow and expensive. The main purpose of caches is to improve things like browsing experience by boosting the page loading speed.

However, along with all the speed advantage they also have some disadvantages that are enough to get rid of them. These files are stored in your phone’s memory which means they are definitely taking some space. Furthermore, if they are not deleted from time to time they can also lead to slowing down your phone’s speed or even stop the web pages and apps from working properly.

There are many advantages of clearing cache files that easily outweigh the advantages of keeping them. Read full post →How To: Clear Android Cache (Apps and Browser)


It happened to me today: I created a Virtualbox (free) Virtual Machine (VM) to run some tests (moving an old PC to a VM), and I have underestimated the disk size that I really needed: with 15GB, the OS (Windows 7) didn’t even have enough space to update itself.

There are numerous online video services that only work inside U.S. and a handful of other countries. Still, the best selection of content on these sites is only available to U.S Subscribers.

The good news is that .NET 3.5 (what is .NET by the way?) can handle all prior .NET versions, so you only need to install it once. The bad news is that the installation will sometimes fail and while the problem is largely documented, the solutions are sparse and many don’t work.

I’ll go through many possible fixes for this, from “easy”, to the more difficult one. Read full post →Solved: How To Install .NET 3.5 On Windows 8


Remote Desktop is probably one of the most used feature in the IT industry to manage servers and provide technical support to the end-users.
