How to Enable the Preview of PDF Files in 64-bit Windows September 11, 2013

I am currently using a x64 machine running Windows 8. For opening the PDF file I had been using Adobe Reader. Later, I shifted to PDF-XChange Viewer by Tracker Software, mainly for its light weight and tabbed interface. This light weight  Installing PDF-XChange Viewer disabled the thumbnail view of the PDF files in the windows explorer. Things went on until I got stuck in a situation where I have to search for a PDF file. I had no clue about the file name; all I had was the idea about the thumbnail of the file, it was a colored document.

At this point, it became a requirement to re-generate the thumbnails for the PDF file. I tried the plain old trick; make Adobe Reader the default program for PDF file. But it did not helped …

I searched for different options but no result. Based on the search result, it seems that this issue is mostly appearing on x64 machines and running 64bit version of Windows 7 (and 8). In the meanwhile, I came to notice that if I change the folder view to Medium icons, the thumbnail of PDF file appears. If the icon size is increased by just a single unit (Crtl + Mouse Scroll Up), the thumbnail reverts back to the icon.

On further exploring, I came across a post on Adobe Forum about the same issue. The Adobe support engineer gave a workaround to check the thumbnail

1. Run Acrobat Reader. In Reader, click File > Open and navigate to the folder(s) containing your PDF file(s). If necessary, move the slider to show all your PDF files.

2. Cancel out of Open and exit Reader.

3. Open Windows Explorer and navigate to the folders(s) containing your PDF file(s).

4. Click Views and move the slider until you see PDF thumbnails

It was okay to get the thumbnail for a certain folder but u need to repeat the same process for each and every folder.  So, its also not a permanent solution.

On the same page, another user has shared his own solution blaming the Adobe for being too lazy to fix the issue. The comment is dated more than a year ago (Apr 15, 2012) and I am still facing the issue. A side question, does it mean Adobe is more busy in the {newly} purchased products than its own products ??

I simply tried the solution offered (link below) which is in the form of installer and it worked like a charm.

The solution, made by an individual and available for free can be downloaded from the link:

Thumbnail for PDF on x64

Additional Notes:

I tried to make the XChange Viewer back as default but doing so again shifted the thumbnails to icons. Well it was not a good change. I tried to make Adobe Reader back as default and the thumbnails were restored. It seems that the XChange Viewer does not support this feature. So after installing the fix, if you need the thumbnail, Adobe Reader should be made the default; else you can continue with the tabbed browsing of XChange Viewer with no thumbnails.

Another option is to give other PDF viewers a try e.g. Foxit PDF Viewer, also a freeware.

On April 30th, 2013 Microsoft Arabia arranged a mega event in the coastal city, Jeddah. The main focus of the event was the latest version of SharePoint, SharePoint 2013. The first event on this topic was conducted in Khobar on 28th of April. The third and the last event will take place on 5th of May in Riyadh. In Jeddah it was a male-only event.

03:45 – 04:00    Break

04:00 – 05:00    Building Windows 8 Apps with SharePoint 2013

05:00 – 05:30    Closing and Prize Draw

Session 1 – Keynotes

The keynotes were delivered by Ammar Abuthuraya, Platform Strategy Manager at Microsoft Arabia. During the keynotes, the main focus was on Office 2013 and Office 365. Office is one of the most matured products. In Office 2007, there was a huge facelift and the concept of ribbons were introduced ( instead of classic menus). In office 2010, there were minor alterations in main user interface with an attempt to reduce the gap between office 2003 and the latest version of office. In office 2013, the main user interface is almost same office 2010. A lot of improvements have been implemented in the backend of the latest version of office e.g. the startup is noticeably faster as compared to the previous versions. Many other highly level (advanced) features have been added i.e. now we can open videos inside the office, open in a browser is no more required. An OCR engine has been implemented that will attempt to open the PDF files as text, if the conversion is unsuccessful (i.e. in case of Arabic) the file will still be displayed but as images.

Office 365 is a new (or reintroduced) subscription based Cloud version of office. It starts for as low as 4$ (~15 SR) per user per month. The user setting and customization is linked with his/her Microsoft Account. It is possible to start writing a document on your office machine and leave it in the middle, when you reach home, you can continue from where you left.

Office 365 Home Premium offers a very economic package of 100$ per year. Also, a user can use his subscription on up-to five devices (desktop, laptop, tab, mobile etc.). If a user is interested in native application instead of web version, a download of common applications is available for different platforms.

Microsoft Office Apps and Lync where also described briefly.

Session 2 – What’s New in Sharepoint 2013

This session was delivered by Ali Khawaja, Architect, Microsoft USA. As the title suggest, in this session Ali tried to cover the NEW or Improved features of Sharepoint 2013.

Some of the features mentioned are:

  • Apps: The concept of apps have been introduced. Apps are much improved form of WebParts. Using apps we can display any type of contents on a SharePoint page with a possibility of an external data source. The concept of apps is basically the brainchild of the social network, Facebook. The apps are rendered as iFrame in SharePoint page.
  • Office and SharePoint Store
  • SharePoint Client Side Object Model [CSOM]
  • SharePoint Server Side Object Model [SSOM]
  • Workflow: The workflow engine in SharePoint 2010 is based on Windows Workflow Foundation 3.5. In SharePoint 2013, it is based on WF 4.0 and 4.5. These newer engines have been re-written from scratch and provide very much improved functionality
  • Access: Access service was already available in existing versions, it has been packed with new features.
  • Fedration, Security and Deployment

Session 3 – Overview of Enterprise Social

This session was also conducted by Ali Khawaja. In this session Ali described about utilizing social network inside an enterprise.  The main benefits of utilizing the social network in a corporate environment can be summarized in these four points:

  1. Employee Engagement
  2. Team Collaboration
  3. Connected Organization
  4. Business Agility

In 2012, Microsoft acquired the Yammer service, a private social network and now it is also available in an integrated environment of SharePoint and Office 365. For startups, a free version is also available. One thing to be noted is that Yammer is a cloud ONLY service yet. It is very easy to start and adopt Yammer as compared to SharePoint with has heavy software + hardware requirement.

Session 4 & 5 – Create Cloud-hosted apps for SharePoint

These sessions were conducted by Shoaib Barry, Applications Developer at ISC Saudi Arabia. To host an app there are three options:

  1. SharePoint Hosted
  2. Auto Hosted
  3. Provider Hosted

Each of the hosting environment has its own merits and demerits. To begin with SharePoint app development, the installation of SharePoint is not required. It can be built and tested using emulators and cloud support. Office 365 developer account is available with a free 30 days startup period.

To consume an app, there are three options:

  1. Full Page
  2. App Part
  3. Custom Action

With the highly revamped security model and available of apps, we can seamlessly populate the menus in a SharePoint page from an external source.Hosting apps in the cloud provide global exposure for all the SharePoint users scattered worldwide.

Different demos where shown by Shoaib to elaborate the new and the enhanced features.

Session 6 – Building Windows 8 Apps with SharePoint 2013

This session was conducted by Fauzan Khan, from Microsoft Arabia. Sharepoint SDK for Windows Phone 8 has been released recently. It provides the Out-of-The-Box (OOTB)support for building apps  for Windows Phone 8 liked with SharePoint server.

Push Notification Stores/Service [PSN] has been provided to handle push notifications. Users can implement receivers for different app events like Upgrade, Install or Uninstall. Different demos where performed to explain these features.

Session 7 – Prize Draw

It was also conducted by Fauzan Khan, the event coordinator. User entry coupons were selected randomly and the selected attendants were presented with different prizes i.e. Microsoft Keyboard, Microsoft Mouse, Microsoft Headset etc.

Finally, this day long event came to an end around 6 PM.

10 Useful But Less Common Cydia Tweaks Worth Trying February 14, 2013

Posted by Bilal in iPhone.

In December 2012, After the sudden shutdown of Installous, the major  pirate appstore by the Hackulous team, many voices were herd saying that the game of jailbreaking is over. Sheer silence about the jailbreak of iOS 6  added fuel to the fire. But with the record downloads of the evasi0n, all such rumors came to their own death. There was a tweet saying that

The jailbreak for iOS6 is awaited even more than the iOS6 itself!

And it is totally true. The slow countdown for the release of evasi0n also persuaded this waiting. On the contrary, when the download of evasi0n was made publicly available, all the crowd rushed to grab it which resulted in the slow performance and time-out errors of the Cydia. No doubt, Saurik was there to take the quick care of it. The web has been flooded with the new and updated posts and tips to do right after jailbreaking. Here, I am going to mention 10 useful but less common tweaks and utilities that you should give a try to feel the true freedom that jailbreak provides to you.

KuaiDial

Category: Tweaks

Price: Free

Apple has done a marvelous job developing iOS and iPhone but it seems that they forgot to make a proper app for the phone itself. iOS 6 provides some major tweaks to the phone app but still it is not fully customizable. This tweak provides you options for customizing almost everything about the phone app (check screenshot below). The homepage of KuaiDial does not provide much information. To explore it fully, you must give it a try.

KuaiDial

 Image: Main Settings for the KuaiDial

NCTabClock

Category: Tweaks

Price: Free

When we are running a full screen app and we want to check the time or the battery, it is very annoying to minimize the app and then reopen it or to open the full notification center. NCTabClock is a very small and simple tweak that adds a clock and/or battery to the tab that appears when trying to open the notification center in a full screen app.

BatteryDoctorPro

Category: Utilities

Price: Free

It is not just a battery manager, it is much more than that. It  provides a lot of features including and not limited to:

  • Battery Profiles – A set of Predefined settings and toggles to get the estimated  battery timing
  • Optimization of battery life by adjusting the charging pattern
  • Full record of charging, discharging, battery usage by apps etc.
  • An extensive collection of toggles AND list of running apps by tapping the battery icon in the status bar
  • Very elegant UI

Personal Note: Highly recommended

batteryDoctorPro

Bridge

Category: Multimedia

Price: $ 1.99

Before iOS 5, even to activate your new iOS device, you have to connect it to iTunes. Now, with iOS 6 running on the devices, the dependency on iTunes has decreased quite considerably but still there are some places when you need to use iTunes to complete a basic task. A very simple task, transfer multimedia files to your device’s iTunes library still required iTunes for this purpose. Bridge allows you to import music and videos straight to your media library (from web browser or other supported apps.)

DataDeposit

Category: Utilities

Price: Free

Although iOS provides the option of the iCloud/iTunes backup but it is very limited in options. Also, if you want to upgrade the OS of your device with CLEAN installation and only interested in the saved data of just a few apps, you are out of luck. If your device is already jailbroken, DataDeposit comes to your rescue. You can upgrade you deice with a clean  installation, to avoid the old stuff that made your previous OS somehow sluggish over the time. Once the upgrade is complete and jailbroken ( e.g. transition from iOS 5.1.1 to iOS 6.1), you can use DataDeposit to restore the data for the selected apps ONLY. It uses Dropbox integration for data deposit and recover.

Personal Note: The app is pretty simple and the recovery rate is almost 90%. If you are too much concerned about your data, you can still take the iTunes/iCloud backup as a plan B.

DietBar

Category: Tweaks

Price: Free

Either you are working on a big screen device or small hand held device, your main concern is the contents of the screen. Hope you remember one of the very first shiny feature of the Google Chrome, a single navigation bar on the top and freeing the rest of the screen for the contents. When you are using small screen device, the screen area gets even more precious. DietBar reclaim precious pixels by shrink the height of most in-app navigation bars to a minimal size.

Personal Note: It works fine with majority of the apps, only in a few apps, a white line appears under the navigation bar.

FolderCloser

Category: Tweaks

Price: Free

It is a very simple tweak that closes the folder automatically once the application has been launched.

iCallAnnounce

Category: Utilities

Price: 0.99 $

As clear from its name, it will announce the name of the caller in a human voice. It also supports announcing sms sender name and the sms text also.

Personal Note: The name will be announced before the bell ring starts. It depends upon the device volume or ringer volume.

PasswordPilot

Category: Tweaks

Price: Free

How many times it has happened that you are trying to download/update an app which is even free, but you are required to enter your password for the apple store account. Since the password requirements for the apple store account are very good from security point of view ( combination of small letters, capital letters, numbers etc); it gets very annoying to enter it again and again. Although an attempt has been made to reduce the frequency of entering password in iOs 6, you still find yourself entering this complex combination too often. PasswordPilot lets you enter the password for your apple store account once and whenever the password box pops up. It fills it automaticall.

Its PRO version is also available for 1.99 $. It supports multiple account and other features.

WrapAround

Category: Tweaks

Price: 1.99 $

Suppose you are having 8 pages of apps on you device and you need to go to the page one. Just press home button once and you will reach home page, simple isn’t it? But what about the reverse i.e. you are on page 1 and need to go to page 8? You have to swipe through hall the pages until you reach the last page. Get WrapAround, it will let u reach to the last page from home page in just 2 swipes : Home Page –> SpotLight Search –> Last Page. It lets you scroll forever through icon pages with infinite scrolling. Last icon page wraps around to Spotlight.

Note: It is possible that some of these apps and tweaks might not be fully ported to iOS 6 but stay tuned, soon you will be able to get the updated version.

Disclaimer: These utilities and tweaks have been mentioned to facilitate your iOS experience. Writer is not responsible for any harm/loss occurred due to the usage of these tweaks and utilities.

Fujitsu Lifebook UH572 – First Boot Up December 13, 2012

In this post we are going to discuss about the very first boot-up of the Fujitsu LIFEBOOK UH572 right after unboxing. Although it has been a while since I have been enjoying with my LIFEBOOK, this stuff has been delayed for other high priority tasks. A lot of stuff has been shared about the LIFEBOOKs during this campaign but I haven’t found any post regarding the very first system start-up and I believe it is still worth sharing.

 

In the first boot up, system installs drivers and devices, does some housekeeping and get it ready for the first use by applying the OEM additions along with the system components.

 

Applying OEM settings, is mainly related to drivers/configuration for additional hardware devices and features available in the system. Different elegant pictures appeared in this duration with message Please Wait … in different languages.

 

And we are ready to explore

 

 

The first thing to do with a new machine is to check its performance that how well it performs in different aspects. Windows Experience Index (WEI) is a good place to start:

Dissection of Fujitsu Lifebook UH572 December 13, 2012

Dont get scary, in this post we are not going to physically dissect a Lifebook rather we will be technically discussing SOME of the features of the Lifebook.

On a business trip from Riyadh back to Jeddah, I found myself sitting beside an arrogant  Dell Inspiron 15 fan boy. I do not mean to say that all Dell Users are arrogant but this dude really happen to be an old days DELL fan boy.

When the flight was up on the air, both of us opened our machines and we had a talk:

Fan Boy: Is this is real laptop or just a China made laptop type gaming console

Me: This is not a laptop at all.

FB: Then what it is ?

Me: it is an Ultrabook

FB: Ultrabok??? What exactly it is?

Me: Ultrabook is an innovative technology by Intel that comes between laptop and desktop computers

FB: Nice, what this special this tiny and shiny toy has got in it that my all-time love, rock solid Dell does not have?

Me: Well, to be  something, does not necessarily means it should be bulky and dull looking. Gone are the days when big size was a symbol for being well equipped. This slim and elegant Lifebook has got a 3rd generation i5 processor, 13.3’’ Anti-glare display and a lot of other promising features.

FB: That’s just okay nothing extra ordinary as compared to my Dell

Me: Well, for your information, it has got a SSD hard disk for a quick boot-up. It has a 4-in-1 card reader. It has USB 3.0 and its Bluetooth is 4.0.

FB: It sounds good but still not fabulous.

Me: My shiny Lifebook has got some other features to amuse you. It has a built-in HDMI port as well as buit-in 3G module. Just insert the data enabled SIM and you are connected, no need to look around for hotspots.

FB: that is something, but does your Ultrabook or Lifebook as you are calling it, has some kind of security?

ME: Lifebook is the brand name of Ultrabooks by Fujitsu. It is a blend of German and Japanese expertise gained over a period of 30+ years. You are asking for the security, Lifebook has got state of the art security features like Advanced Theft Protection (ATP) which allows you to remotely lock/erase your data in case of theft.

FB: WoW, that’s really impressive.

ME: You can check the full specifications of these Lifebook HERE.

FB: That’s good, but I have a concern.

ME: Sure, go ahead…

FB: Such a powerful and elegant machine would be very much expensive.

ME: Ohh, it’s not like it sounds to be. It is very much economical as compared to its features. You can check it here: www.shopfujitsu.com

FB: Its really nice to know and thanks for sharing such valuable information

ME: It’s my pleasure…

Then he asked me if he could test my Lifebook. Then we had a good time exploring and discussing about it.

 

It feels really good to share some good information with others.

Boundless Mobility with Lifebook UH572 December 13, 2012

Having split office timings, I do not have much privilege to hang out. From 2 Pm to 5 PM is the break time. This time can be utilized for some outdoor activities, depending on the weather. A change of environment and surrounding keep you fresh and you get better productivity.

Lifebook equipped with built-in 3G module has cleared the boundaries and limitation to get connected at any time at any place. Let us have a look for the out of the office work places:

Jeddah is a coastal city and my office is closer to cornice than my house. If weather conditions are not sever, a visit to the sea side is a nice option.

On Google Maps:

Link for the place: http://j.mp/RCc89g

Note, the links are from Google Earth and if your connection is low, it could take some time to load FULLY (in 3D).

 

AlBaik is one of the best fast food chain in the region (not in the whole country, it is mostly in the western region of the country with 25+ branches in Jeddah city only). Its main specialty is its fried chicken served with a garlic sauce. It is a nice place to dine in and have some chit chat with fellows.

On Google Maps:

Link: http://j.mp/Uf9Kjf

 

When feeling tired or bored, a visit to the garden is a nice productivity boasting option. Mother nature has its pleasant effect.

On Google Maps:

Link: http://j.mp/VwQAfF

 

If you are looking for a fine dine-in place I would recommend Chinese restaurant. You can have a quiet and clam environment with no distraction where you can pay full attention to your Lifebook and have a good time.

On Google Maps:

(The monument is a big big bicycle and new-comers/visitors are jokingly told that it belongs to Prophet ADAM. The grave of His wife EVE is in this city. Jeddah, an Arabic word, means Grand Mother i.e. EVE grandmother of all of us)

Link: http://j.mp/Uf9UqX

 

In the last, if you are still not feeling hungry, this is for you as an apparizer:

A typical over HOT AlBaik fired chicked with fires, bread, fresh coleslaw, ketchup and the unique garlic sause. If you are still not sure about the taste of it, ask these people:

Fujitsu LifeBook UH572 is As thin AS … December 13, 2012

The very first thing that anyone observe about the Fujitsu Lifebook UH572 is its slim body. Its slim like a tablet (almost) and powerful like a regular laptop. Its innovative style and the finish make it very elegant.

Let’s compare the UltraBook with some common day to day used items:

One of my favorite chocolates is Snickers. I love its blend of chocolate with a different variety of ingredients specially high blend of peanuts. At work, in the mid of the day, before the lunch break, if I feel short of calories (due to extra light breakfast) or at any time if I want some boast, it is one of my top choices.

UltraBook vs Snickers

Although evolution of technology is at a big rise, old toys/tools still help in some particular conditions. If you are into some lengthy and complex calculations, a solar powered table calculator by Casio is a useful companion.

Ultrabook VS Casio

Ultrabook VS Casio or New VS Old

Office Paper stand is a nice equipment to place and classify the frequently used document.

UltraBook in a A4 size Paper Stand

Yes, my UltraBook is one of my projects and I need to access it frequently.

In the last there is a special gift for the Lifebook fans. Try finding the UltraBook:

Fujitsu Ultrabook UH572 – Security Features December 5, 2012

Posted by Bilal in Fujitsu Lifebook UH572, Product.
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Security has been a hot topic since long. With more and more stuff going in digital form, along with it’s a lot of benefits it has its price. The highest of them is the security (I believe so). Here, we are going to talk about the Lifebook UH572 from security perspective.

Normally, there is a default plan/path and if required a backup plan. The UltraBook has gone one step ahead with three (main) levels of security:

  • Physical or Anti-Theft Security
  • Hardware or Device Security
  • Soft or Data Security

1. Physical or Anti-Theft Security

Lifebook has got a Kensington lock slot (or K-Slot as it is called in short). It is the primary anti-theft mechanism used these days for electronic devices. It is used to attach devices to their bases/stands to avoid theft. Details about K-Slot can be checked here: Wikipedia

Kensington lock slot

Figure: Lifebook UH-572 — K-Slot on the extreme left

Drawback:

The way it is easy to install, the same way it is easy to crack. It can even be picked using a cardboard. It is just an attempt to block from novices attacks.

2. Hardware or Device Security

If  someone happen to steal your Lifebook (God forbid but it could be a real situation), among many possibilities, one case is that if you have got your BIOS as well as hard disk password protected (yes, Lifebook provided with BOTH of these options), the person will try to open your machine and get some benefit from individual components.  Lifebook have got six T6 Torx. This is not a regular type of screw and its driver is commonly not available.

Drawback

The sad thing is T6 Trox screw driver, although not commonly available but it is not so hard to find.

3. Soft or Data Security

As it has been mentioned above that Lifebook is equipped with BOOT and HardDisk password, it also provides a new and wonderful feature Advanced Theft Protection aka ATP. It allows you to remotely perform operation on your machine like theft report, data deletion etc. You can read in more details about ATP at this link: Advanced Theft Protection(PDF File)

Final Thoughts

Even with all these layers of security, there are always some open holes that have to be considered. But, its a lot lot better to have a complex security instead of no security at all, at least in this way your chance/magnitude of loss is highly reduced.

Disclaimer: To make some thing secure, you should be aware of the possible breach points
