See file extension Mac

Hi Remoters,

Sometimes you need to see the file extension and you don t know how? Here you have a quick guide of How to do it.

A filename extension consists of a dot (.) followed by several letters that identify the type of file (for example, .txt or .jpg). The extension can determine which app opens the file.

Filename extensions are usually hidden in OS X, but if you find them useful, you can show them. In some apps you can choose to show a document’s filename extension when you save the document.

If filenames are showing and you decide to hide them, OS X is still able to open the files with the proper apps.

For one file

  1. Select a file and choose File > Get Info or press Command (⌘)–I.
  2. Click the triangle next to Name & Extension to expand the section and see the filename extension for the file.
  3. To show or hide the filename extension, select or deselect “Hide extension.”

For all files

  1. Choose Finder > Preferences, and then click Advanced.
  2. Select or deselect “Show all filename extensions.”

Some filename extensions can’t be hidden. For example, images imported from a digital camera may continue to show the .jpg extension even after you deselect “Show all filename extensions.”

10 best RSS Readers in the Mac App Store

Hi Remoters,

¿Do you like to read the newspaper? I am sure you do that´s why today I will give you some details about the best RSS Readers in the App Store.

 

1. Caffeinated

Caffeinated is a well designed and elegant reader which has attracted very good reviews in the App Store. The layout shows each news feed organised into categories with the news displayed in the main window. Bookmarks can be created for your favourite articles, and it’s possible to share items with various social network sites such as Facebook and Twitter. Like many such applications, a Readability mode lets you view the full article in a stripped-down layout without ads.

More details: App Store Link

2. Fresh Feed

Fresh Feed focuses on simplicity. The application sits in the Mac’s menu bar and is updated in real time. Just click the icon to view a list of news, and on individual news stories to view in Safari. The Pro version can synchronise with Google Reader and also read out the news titles. Watch out Siri!

3. Mixtab

Mixtab is an eye-catching RSS news reader that organises topics in a rather stylish way. The app uses “tabs” which in this context are simply top-level menus menus that show feed collections. You can create new tabs and organise them however you desire, as well as customise the content within and choose an overall theme from a selection of built-in templates.

Mixtab also works in Lion’s full screen mode, and is probably one of the most pleasant ways to read the news. It requires you to create an account with Mixtab, but it takes just seconds to set one up.

4. MobileRSS

MobileRSS has been available for the iPhone and iPad since July 2011, and the Mac version has almost identical functionality. The app is simply a Google Reader client so you need to have a Google account to use it, but it synchronises perfectly and has lots of sharing options such as posting to Twitter and Instapaper. There are multiple view layouts and you can even download full articles for specified feeds to read later.

More details: App Store Link

5. NewsBar

NewsBar is a little unusual amongst the Mac RSS readers, because it shows the news in a semi-transparent sidebar on your desktop screen which is updated in real-time. There are dozens of useful features such as single-click to pop-up and read, or double-click to open the full story in the browser, as well as optional synchronisation with a Google Reader account, plus favourites, a customisable interface and much more.

More details: App Store Link

6. NewsFire

NewsFire is quite old now and hasn’t been updated for some time, but it has a very functionality and uncluttered interface that contains just the most essential features. You can’t synchronise with Google Reader unfortunately, but as a very basic RSS  reader which does exactly what it says, it’s a pretty decent application.

7. NewsRack

NewsRack uses a tabbed interface and thumbnail previews of each story (something that many readers don’t have) and just like most RSS apps, NewsRack can synchronise with your Google Reader account (but this is purely optional). It’s not the cheapest RSS reader but it has most of the key features covered. Interestingly, it can also be extended with AppleScript, so anyone that likes to tinker in such things might espeically enjoy NewsRack.

8. Reeder

Reeder has the honour of being many people’s favourite RSS reader and is consistently popular on the iPad, iPhone and Mac. It requires a Google Reader account to work but that’s easy enough to set up. Feeds are displayed in a list and organised in topics of your choosing such as Technology, Sport and so on, and it has all the usual options to mark feeds (or individual stories) as read, or to “star” them as favourites.

There’s plenty of sharing options in Reeder and Readability is also supported. Select an article headline and you’re taken to the original story inside the app itself, or you can view the original in Safari. A great little news reader indeed, and one that’s become deservedly popular.

More details: App Store Link

9. RSS Menu

RSS Menu it’s quite unique because it doesn’t have its own application window, but as the name suggests it uses a systemwide drop-down menu instead. This means it’s easily accessible from any screen on your Mac – even in full-screen mode. Whilst some people might prefer a more traditional windowed approach, RSS menu does its job well as a handy news reading application.

10. RSS Ticker For Google Reader

RSS Ticker For Google Reader not only presents RSS news feeds and syncs with a Google Reader account, but it has a rather nice ticker that constantly scrolls feeds across the title bar in the chosen space, much like a rolling news channel. There’s also a more traditional list view layout to view each story in more detail. The usual options are present, such as being able to star favourites and showing the number of unread items in the application’s Dock icon.

I use Pulp the app but I strongly recommend each one of this apps.

How to save battery life iPhone iOS7

Hi everybody,

In today´s post I would like to show you some tricks to save your battery in iPhone iOs7.

iOS7 is all kinds of sexy, but with a slew of fancy new features comes more strain on the ever-important statistic of battery lifeiOS 7 is compatible with iPhone 4 or later (though not all features are supported on older devices), so if you’re upgrading your current device to the new operating system, there’s a good chance you could see a noticeable decrease in battery life.

App Refresh

Disable background refresh

iOS 7 lets certain apps refresh even when you’re not using them, which is both super convenient and a big problem for users who want the most out of their batteries. Disabling Background Refresh entirely would be your best bet, but even disabling the feature on just a few apps should help your device remain lively for a bit longer.

Alter your location services

It seems like just about every app wants to track your location these days. For some apps, like Maps, this makes a lot of sense, but if you’ve authorized other apps (TwitterFacebook) to track your location without actually using the in-app features that go along with it, you should turn it off. In addition to apps, iOS 7 has a whole host of system-level options for location tracking, including local advertising and even the compass. If you don’t use the apps to begin with, turning off the GPS tracking won’t do much, but if you can disable tracking for a few of your most-used apps, you could see a decent boost in battery life.

Turn off notifications for all unnecessary apps

It’s time to play your favourite game again, We’ve got a special treat for you. Why haven’t you been on a run recently Notifications from games and apps can not only be annoying but also a battery drain. Go to Settings > Notification Centre and then see what Apps are giving what notifications. Turn the off and your battery life will go up.

Turn off Stock notifications

Do you really need stock updates every time you check the Notification Centre If the answer is no, then good news, more battery saving potentials. To turn Stocks off go to Settings > Notification Centre > Stocks and say no.

 

Stop iOS 7 tracking where you hangout

iOS 7 keeps a track on where you hang out most, allowing it to cache relevant nearby data. Once you’ve used iOS 7 for a while, go to Settings > Privacy > Location Services > System Services to view a list of where you’ve been most. If you are worried you can turn this feature off in the same place.

Shut down unwanted apps

Apple’s new Multitasking feature is really easy to use and makes it a lot easier to shut down apps. Apple says that when you aren’t using an app it sits there doing nothing. If you don’t believe that every so often double tap the Home button and then swipe those app cards to the top of the screen to close what you aren’t using.

Not using AirDrop? Kill it

iOS 7 introduces AirDrop to the iPhone for the first time, but even if you find yourself using the handy Dropbox-style feature from time to time, you should be turning it off when you don’t need it. This is made easy by the new Control Center in iOS 7, which can be brought up by swiping upwards on the home screen. From here, it’s just two taps to either enable or disable AirDrop, and while you’re here, you can also disable Bluetooth and/or WiFi to help save additional battery life when you’re not using them. Note: AirDrop is not available on the iPhone 4 or 4S.

So there you have a few tricks to save your battery life.

So here you have the status of you battery, always green and charged 😀
