In Office whenever I tried to access Google Maps I got following firewall restriction message. 

FortiGuard Web Filtering 
Error 
Web Page Blocked!

He said their is a simple trick which can let us access Google Maps service.

How I increased my Windows Phone battery life


No Smart phone (Be it Android, IOS , Windows Phone) could provide more than ~3-4 Hrs battery life if used heavily. This is biggest challenge for mobile manufacturer companies.

Solution available at present in market

1. In Australia, there are mobile battery charging stations to recharge your mobile.

2. Microsoft Windows Phone version 8 has launched wireless recharging functionality through wireless charging station places at various places, like Airport etc.

I have seen several articles on this topics but I want to share what I do to keep my (Samsung Omnia W - Windows Phone 7.10) phone up and running with one full recharge in a Day, as well as other tip to keep my phone battery last longer.

What I do keep my phone up and running whole Day with one full recharge?

1. Don't keep Data connection always ON: Instead keeping data connection ON all time, I turn it ON and OFF frequently, say every 1 Hr I turn it on for few minutes to check emails, important alerts, social media notification (Facebook, Twitter etc) and then turn it OFF.

2. SMS over Calling: I prefer messaging (SMS), instead calling unless calling is required, if calling is required I keep my conversation (Calls) short and simple.

3. No Full Volume: I do not listen to Songs \ FM at full volume, I set volume as 25/30, as high volume causes battery to drain faster.

By following these simple tips Daily, I keep my phone going ON through out Day, and in a Day I listen to music for more than 1 Hr, I play game (My Favorite Chess4All), use Internet for browsing, chatting (Facebook, Whatsapp).

What to do to make my phone battery last longer?

1. Keep WI-FI, Bluetooth, Location service OFF, if you require to use them than after using these services turn them OFF.

2. Turn OFF Vibration mode, as vibration mode consume more battery power than normal ringer.

3. Set 'Lowscreen brightness, by default it is high brightness, the higher the brightness more battery power is required.

4. Choose 'Dark' (Black) background than 'light' (White) background, Black background consumes less battery power.

5. Screen lock out time, set screen-shot lock out time to 30 seconds, unless you are reading a PDF book.

6. Do not keep 'Data Connection' always ON, turn it on at regular interval to check important update and surfing.

Note: These all the settings are available in Settings menu (application).

What to do when your phone battery is too low?

1. Turn OFF data connection and Turn OFF Vibration, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Location Service.

2. Or you can go to 'Battery Saver' option in 'Settings' menu and check mark: 'Turn on Battery Saver now, until the next charge'. Changing these setting will automatically block all communication except Callings and SMSing.

Note
If you use phone heavily for email, browsing, and chatting then your battery will get drained in 2-3 Hrs, so its better to keep a micro-USB charger in handy which you can use to connect to your office PC / Laptop etc.

- Today, I came to know about 'Solar Charger' mobile application for Windows Phone through which can charge our Mobile Phone battery by making our phone screen acting as solar panel, I will test this application and will update further whether it really works.

Applies To: Windows Phone 7, Windows Phone 7.5, Windows Phone 8

Fix:The url you requested has been blocked

Fix:The url you requested has been blocked
In offices most of the websites are blocked due to firewall (security) restriction, specially news, games, social networking, business websites are blocked. people requires to access these websites on daily basis. Like me did you ever be in a situation wherein you tried to access sites such as facebook.com, yahoo.com, naukri.com, monster etc. site or any article you find through Google search and you got error as mentioned below.

"The URL you requested has been blocked. URL = timesofindia.indiatimes.com/"
"The URL you requested has been blocked. URL = naukri.com/"
"The URL you requested has been blocked. URL = facebook.com/"
"The URL you requested has been blocked. URL = timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/mumbai/I-have-no-energy-left-support-Uddhav-and-Aditya-Bal-Thackeray-tells-Sainiks/articleshow/16944914.cms"

The URL may vary as it depend upon the website name are you trying to access.

Sometime websites which are required to complete a task also gets blocked due to keyword filtering in firewall, such keywords ares sports, cricket etc. The most commonly blocked sites are personal blog websites which has person name+blogspot.co.in URL, in such URLs content is really useful and required for you to complete your task but sites gets blocked.

So far we have talked about the issue and the issue only, let's see how to fix the error: The url you requested has been blocked

Solution:

The solution is pretty straight forward and simple to use.

Simply add this URL: https://gaopiproxy.appspot.com before the site which got blocked.

Example 1:
==========
Suppose you were trying to access site with URL: support.jesoba.com and you got error: The url you requested has been blocked

Then simply add https://gaopiproxy.appspot.com before the URL, now the URL would like as following.

https://gaopiproxy.appspot.com/support.jesoba.com

Example 2:
========
Suppose you were trying to access something through Google search and when you clicked URL in search result you got following error.

"The URL you requested has been blocked. URL = www.google.co.in/url?url=http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/mumbai/I-have-no-energy-left-support-Uddhav-and-Aditya-Bal-Thackeray-tells-Sainiks/articleshow/16944914.cms&rct=j&sa=X&ei=5uuIUO-MNMyPrgfNzoGQDQ&ved=0CCQQgBAoADAA&q=india+news&usg=AFQjCNGSEjB0qaHpDX4tswBAtc2UAHo0wA"

In such situation make following changes in the URL mentioned in address bar of the browser (Bet it IE, Firefox, Chrome)

Current (Blocked) URL: http://www.google.co.in/url?url=http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/mumbai/I-have-no-energy-left-support-Uddhav-and-Aditya-Bal-Thackeray-tells-Sainiks/articleshow/16944914.cms&rct=j&sa=X&ei=5uuIUO-MNMyPrgfNzoGQDQ&ved=0CCQQgBAoADAA&q=india+news&usg=AFQjCNGSEjB0qaHpDX4tswBAtc2UAHo0wA

New (Unblocked) URL:

https://gaopiproxy.appspot.com/www.google.co.in/url?url=http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/mumbai/I-have-no-energy-left-support-Uddhav-and-Aditya-Bal-Thackeray-tells-Sainiks/articleshow/16944914.cms&rct=j&sa=X&ei=5uuIUO-MNMyPrgfNzoGQDQ&ved=0CCQQgBAoADAA&q=india+news&usg=AFQjCNGSEjB0qaHpDX4tswBAtc2UAHo0wA

What has been changed in new (unblocked) URL:

1. We added https://gaopiproxy.appspot.com/ before the URL
2. We removed http:// from current (blocked) URL

Now when you will try to access the site article with New (Unblocked) URL you will get message similar to mentioned below.

"The URL you requested has been blocked. URL = timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/mumbai/I-have-no-energy-left-support-Uddhav-and-Aditya-Bal-Thackeray-tells-Sainiks/articleshow/16944914.cms"

Now in above URL make those two changes again.

1. We added https://gaopiproxy.appspot.com/ before the URL
2. We removed http:// from current (blocked) URL

The URL would look like as follow:

https://gaopiproxy.appspot.com/timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/mumbai/I-have-no-energy-left-support-Uddhav-and-Aditya-Bal-Thackeray-tells-Sainiks/articleshow/16944914.cms

Here we go...., congratulations!!!! Happy browsing.

How to Detach IE Tab


How to detach IE Tab
I have been using Windows XP with IE (Internet Explorer) 8 and several times I found the need of detaching (disconnecting) IE tab and putting it into another (new) browser window, but no such feature was available at that time in IE 8. 

Now, finally I could see the feature to detach (separate) a Tab and put it into another window in IE 9.

What is TAB? This is a browser feature wherein we can open multiple websites in a single browser window. Earlier, we had to open multiple windows for multiple website. Each tab opens a new process (iexplorer.exe etc.) for new tab. This is called Tabbed browsing.

How to Detach (remove) IE Tab?

1. Open websites in multiple tabs in IE 9.
2. Select any Tab which you want to move to new window, keep the left mouse button pressed and then move cursor to other location in your desktop and then release the mouse left button.
3. Now if you want to re-attach the Tab back to other Tab, then follow similar process (Step no. 2).

Why do we need to Detach IE Tab(s)?

At present, I can think of two reasons why we would require ungrouping (detach) IE Tabs.

1. Watching Videos: Suppose you are watching a video and at the same time somebody starts pinging you on Gtalk, Facebook, Yahoo chat, in this situation can detach the video tab so that can arrange both chat and video tab.

2. Remote Support: Suppose you have taken a LogMeIn (LMI) remote desktop support session and want to help your friend fix a computer problem, at the same time you have opened couple of support forums pages which has troubleshooting steps to fix the issue. In this case you can detach the LogMeIn tab so that you can read the steps and perform the steps on remote computer at the same time.

Minimum Requirement: Windows 7 OS and IE 9 browser.

Important Notes

- You can't install IE 9 on Windows XP machine.
- You would not require detaching a tab if you have already opened it in a new window instead new tab.

Bonus Tips

- There is an option in IE to change the Tabs related settings. Go to Tools menu, in General Tab, click Settings next to Tabs.

- Any changes made to Tabs settings would require you to restart Internet Explorer (Browser).

Find why Internet is slow and how to fix it


Find why Internet is slow and how to fix it
Before we start discussing Internet slow speed issue and how to fix it, first let’s understand in brief about Internet and definition of slow. 

What is Internet? Internet is collection of computers (Web Servers) connected through networking devices and peripherals (switches, routers, firewall, network cables [Fiber cable, CAT 6 cables]). These web servers serve web pages to computer and mobile users through ISP (Leased Line, Broadband, 3G, 4G etc.).

What is definition of Slow? Slow is decrease in performance, meaning you see different between previous and current speed.

What causes slow Internet speed? and How to fix slow Internet speed issue?

There are several factors which would affect your Internet speed, let’s see what these factors are. We have ordered these factors from your computer to network settings, ISP and then other factors.

       1. Computer Performance: Has your computer performance gone slow, if so than it needed to be fixed first, because if your computer is running slow then you would definitely see performance issue in internet speed. 
As a troubleshooting you can try connecting other computer in your home to see if that makes the difference.
How to fix your computer performance issue:-
A.    Antivirus Scan: Update your computer virus definition file and then run full computer scan. You may want to read: How to remove Virus from mobile.
B.    Disk Space: Make sure C: drive on your computer have at least 5 GB of free disk space. Clean temporary files and browser history now and then regularly.
C.   Software Maintenance: Are all your software’s upgraded? If not please upgrade them, Do you have unwanted software’s? Please remove them.  Is your computer driver updated? If not update them.
D.   Change Browser: If found Google Chrome to be the fastest browser, hence request you to try out Google Chrome browser. If this doesn’t help then start browsing in safe-mode or disable any recently installed Add-ons.
  
         2. Network Settings: In network setting, we will start with local area network (LAN) card driver, network card configuration setting and then IP, DNS, Gateway setting.
Make sure your network card drivers are updated and then cable connecting to your network card is not broken or RJ45 PIN is not broken. If cable or PIN is broken, request your ISP to get it changed.
Did you change any network card settings? If so, please revert back any changes.
Did you change any network IP, DNS, Gateway settings? If so, please revert back any changes.
Do you use wireless router? Do not have major distance between your computer and wireless router else signal will be poor and you will see slow browsing and slow file upload, download issue.

      3. Internet Service Provider: If computer performance and network settings are not the cause of the issue then you would need to approach ISP, contact them and report the issue, also tell them you have already followed above steps. ISP might have issues with Router settings, DNS server issue.

      4. Other Factors: Sometime it might be only specific website may be running slow due to heavy load on the server or might be the location where the website is hosted having internet issue. If one website is slow then try accessing other website to confirm whether its Internet issue or website issue. You may read: How to check website speed.

      Restart (reboot) your computer, modem, router if haven't restarted for long time.

Example: Uploading videos on Facebook takes times and uploading videos on YouTube is faster. The reason behind this could be poor server hardware which is not capable to handle heavy requests or issue with their (Facebook) own internet service provider.

Let us know if above steps does not help you fix internet slow speed issue, we are happy to hear from you and fix your issue.
