What this application does is keep track of all of your interests and brings up multiple websites and articles based on that interest. All of this is displayed within a good looking tile based environment. From here, if you find something you like or are interested in you can like and share the post to all of your social networking accounts with just a click of a button.

Smart Defrag 3


One of the hassles of using a Windows computer has to defrag your computer on a regular basis. Of course you can always set up a schedule to make that pain staking task happen when you’re asleep, but what we need is a faster but still effective disk defragment application that would not only speed up the process, but explain the errors it had found in a way that almost everyone could understand. As you can probably tell from this video, I did find such an application. Smart Defrag 3 allows for a quicker and more user friendly disk defrag while providing extra resources for you to use.
