Free PDF Reader Viewer for Iphone/Ipod Touch

Yes, you can read (view) PDF files in your Ipod Touch/ Iphone. You can view the files later without needing any Internet Connection. But one drawback is, you need access to a WiFi network!

The Best way to do this is, by creating your own WiFi Network, that means it will be free and you will not have to pay charge for transfering PDF files.

Step 1. Download The App “Files Lite”

Go official link here and download the free version. The free version allows a maximum limit to 200 MB

Step 2. Start the Application in your Iphone

Once you have downloaded & installed the application, start it in your ipod. Before that, be sure you are connected to a WiFi Network. When you start the app, it will prompt you an internet address i.e or something like this. Open your favorite browser and go to this address by typing it in your address-bar.

If everything is all right, you will see a web-page, using which you can upload PDF files in your Ipod! Later, to read the PDFs, open the app in your Iphone and select the PDF you want to read. That’s so simple 😀

How to search & Download Free Ebook PDF books by Google!

By using some cool Google search features, you can save time and search free Ebook/PDF books for download! Here goes some cool tips:

1. If you are looking for PDF files, add the term filetype:pdf with your search query. Suppose you are searching wrox’s ebooks, so you may search like this: wrox php filetype:pdf 😉

Or to search for java books, you may try: java filetype:pdf

However, this trick is not quite helpful. Instead, we are looking for such sites providing bulk ebooks stored in their server for direct download! Confused? have a look on this site….

Wasn’t it cool? Yeah! I used following search term for searching sites which provide free direct ebook download:

-inurl:htm -inurl:html -inul:asp intitle:”index of” (pdf) python

How to connect Two PC and Share BroadBand Internet in windows Seven/Vista

Assume you have two computers running in Windows Vista/Seven:

  • – PC1, already connected with Internet using BroadBand (Ethernet Cable)
  • – PC2, which you want to connect with PC1 and share the internet.

Well, that’s quite simple in Windows Seven/Vista. All you need is:

Well, Now let’s begin work. It’s quite simple. First, just install another LAN Card (the card where you plug the cable) in PC1 (just insert the card on your motherborard or use a USB lan card). Now, your PC1 has two LAN cards installed. The first card is connected with the internet. The second card will be used to connect with PC2!

Now, when you install the new LAN card on PC1, you can find a new Icon on Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections. Just like the one shown in the picture below (I’ve renamed my first lan card as “cityccom” and the second card icon as “gigahome”)

Now, Double clidk on the icon of new lan card, Click Properties. From the property window, double click on Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IP). A new window will appear, and make everything unchanged like the picgture below:

Now, Right click on the icon of the old LAN card which is connected to internet (in my case “citycom”) and go to Properties. Now, click on the sharing tab, and put tick on the sharing option.

You’re almost done! One final step, now go to PC2. Go to Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections. Then Right click on the icon of the LAN card, go to properties, double click on Internet Protocol version 4 (TCP) and set everything default (Obtain IP address, DNS automatically)

You’re done! Now connect the new lan card of PC1 with PC2 using the cross-over cable, and you can enjoy networking and internet.

NB: If it troubles, try connecting and disconnecting the cables, or by restarting the computers.
