29 Aug
Hi Chums,
I had a problem with my laptop a week ago. It wasn’t turning ON without the charger. I thought it was due to low battery. So I connected to charger and turned it ON. Tt was working good. But to my surprise, it wasn’t charging. It was stuck to 2%. When I remove the charger, it gets turned off.I thought I will have to replace my battery now. But there’s a simple solution to this.

Online Comics!

27 Jun
Hi Chum,

Well, who doesn’t love comics. But the thing is, we are not bothered about them these days. How many of you have searched for comics online.

An Internet freak will surely try everything online. And if you’re thinking to search online, you might have already Googled it too..

You will find many comic sites like:

http://www.onlinecomics.net, http://www.imagecomics.com, http://www.archiecomics.comhttp://www.lorencollins.net/freecomic, http://www.daviscomics.com,

But First Check the Zark!!!!!!- http://www.zark.com/

Comics are not childish. They are a form of entertainment to everyone!!!

Maths: Wolfram-Alpha & Mathway

26 Jun
Hi Chum,

Today we will discuss about the problem of mathematics.

While some love mathematics, some hate it to the hell.

Even a genius in maths gets stuck at some or the other calculation. Your calculator can only give you answers. Not the procedure of solutions. You get fed up. The maths haters simply leave the problem.

Now there is a great solution to such problem.

The best solutions to this problem are online.

1. Mathway &   2. WolframAlpha

Both of them help in giving the solution to any mathematics problem. Most of you might have know about Wolfram Alpha already.

Similarly, Mathway also helps a lot. Any higher calculations of Basic Math, Pre- Algebram, Algebra, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus can be solved. Its not only for students, It has tutor sections for parents as well as teachers.

Mathway gives step by step solution too, but we need to pay a little for that extra feature. While WolframAlpha is completely free, but not always it gives the steps. (For some problems, it gives steps too!)

Now, If you are thinking of which is better.. I say, why think when you can use both of them and opt the one according to the problem!!

And if you ask me which is better.. WolframAlpha has lot of extra features.. ! But occasionally Mathway can do the job for you, that wolfram doesn’t!
