I just bought this little fancy USB 3.0 hard drive from Seagate and thought I would write a little review if you are considering buying a new Portable USB drive yourself. It is a nice little device easy to carry around with you and it weighs only 224 g. Unbelievable that 1 TB data can be stored on such a small light device. If you like me have been around IT for many years you can properly remember how it were back in the days when we was compressing files to fit them down to a bunch of floppy drives 🙂

How to retrieve your Windows Product Key from Registry

Sometimes it can be convenient to be able to retrieve the Windows Product key from an active Windows installation e.g. if you have lost your Windows COA Sticker or if you can’t read the sticker anymore because it has been damage. I have developed a little tool in Visual Basic that can help you to retrieve your Windows Product key from the registry on an active Windows installation. With this tool you can find your Product Key before you reinstall your system to be sure that you are able to reactivate your Windows license. No installation is required and there is no catch like in form of toolbars or hidden ads. It is just a single .exe file that you can put on a USB stick and bring with you wherever you go.

In October 2013 the free upgrade (Windows 8.1) to Windows 8 will arrive to try and fix some of the issues and criticism of Windows 8. I have been able to test and get a look on what Microsoft have changed in this update and will give you a little tour of the changes Windows 8.1 brings to Windows 8.
