Windows live essentials 2015 full setup

Windows Live Essentials 2012I just brought to know about the launch of the Windows Live Essentials 2012 from the official Windows team blog. If you’re not familiar, Live Essentials is an integrated suite of applications commonly available as free for Microsoft Windows desktops. This version of the software includes Windows Movie Maker, Photo Gallery, Mail, Live Writer, Messenger 2012 editions, all upgraded for Windows 8 with a set of new features. At present, it is not possible to download a standalone version of the applications mentioned above. You’ve to download the Live Essentials 2012 offline installer and select the required apps during the installation process. Another fact is that Microsoft doesn’t provide a direct link to download Live Essentials 2012 on their official page for the product, but I got the link from the Windows team blog website.

IBPS Bank Exam details at

We covered the aspects of the first IBPS bank exam on October of last year. The previous exam was a huge success among the job seekers who were desperately looking for openings in various financial institutions in India. The best thing about the IBPS system is that it handles a single window exam, a common selection procedure that shapes a rank list, from which the participating banks can select applicants matching their needs. Every year IBPS sets up exams for three job categories; PO, Clerical cadre and for specialist officers.

Fix SIM not supported in iPhone 3G and 3GS after iOS 4.2.1 firmware upgrade

Fix SIM non supported iOS 4.2.1If we upgrade a carrier unlocked iPhone 3G or 3G S to iOS 4.2.1 firmware or any other version it will lose its activation and become unusable. Those people who bought unlocked iPhone models will get into trouble if they upgrade to new iOS without checking for the availability of compatible jailbreak/unlock tools. The iPhone will then keep itself locked at the “No SIM card inserted” message and with a connect to iTunes screen. And another message ” The SIM card inserted in this iPhone doesn’t appear to be supported” when we connect the device to iTunes. That means you have to get the original carrier SIM card to activate the iPhone 3G or 3G S again. But you can override this using activation of hactivation tools designed for the specific iOS version. Thanks to the iPhone-dev team and other iOS hackers around the world. Now we can fix SIM not supported message in iPhone 3G and 3GS after iOS 4.2.1 firmware upgrade too.
