I was looking for a program to send free SMS but all I was finding was to send free text messages within the app such as WhatsApp. They require both sender and receiver to have the app and be online which is not what I wanted. Then after some digging I found JaxtrSMS which allows you to send free SMS to anyone even if he doesn’t have the app. The other benefit is that as sender you declare your phone number and receiver knows that you are the sender. Other apps show a strange number even from another country. JaxtrSMS is available for almost any mobile OS including iOS, Android and Symbian. You can find more and download it from the source link, it is completely free.
Ultra PDF Merger is a freeware PDF utility that joins your PDF files, or part of them, together. It is a windows application and it runs on both 32bit and 64bit systems. Ultra PDF Merger is portable which means you don’t have to install anything, just download it, extract its content and run it. In this way you can put it in your USB drive and use it anywhere. There are two changes in this version. The most important is that you can choose the pages you want to merge by choosing the starting and the ending page. The second change is that the check for two or more files has been removed. You now have the option to “merge” only one file.
Few months ago I had some reports (PDF files) that I wanted to bind them into one. I had a utility that until that time was merging my files successfully, I don’t want to name it here. Those reports seemed to have some characters that the utility could not read and it was failing. I have searched the internet and I have found several PDF binders, mergers and joiners but the ones I tried didn’t meet my needs, so I have decided to create one. The result of this story is the Ultra PDF Merger. It succeed when others have failed.

A large percentage of websites have social network buttons and you probably used them. Every time you visit a website that has “Like”, “Follow” or “+1” buttons, even if you don’t use them, the social networks sites can track you. Facebook is (or was?) tracking you even after you log out. What this means? It means that social networks sites know what sites you are visiting and “learn” your interests. I don’t know about you but I don’t like that and I like my privacy. If you think that this is not a big deal then you are wrong. They track you on every website you visit that has the social network buttons, even if that website is illegal.
