Yahoo New Look!

Tech Blog - Check out Yahoo's new homepage, I find it less clustered than the old Yahoo look, text are bigger and generally much cleaner, you also have the option of customizing your homepage if you have logged in to your Yahoo account, for some reason the new look reminds me of google.com/ig page :), check it out Yahoo's new homepage.

Partition Recovery Software Review

Tech Blog - I recently was sent a Partition Recovery Software by Stellar Phoenix, anyway I was able to test some feature of this software particularly "Cloning" feature and "Deleted File Recovery", so far both feature have worked well for me, I was able to recover recently deleted file that has been deleted from the recycle bin, Stellar Phoenix Partition Recovery Software is a comprehensive recovery and disk tool, I find the software is easy to use there are some features that are not available on open source recovery tools such as Test Disk that are available on Stellar Phoenix such as "Compressed File System Recovery" and Disk Imaging or cloning which might be helpful to people that used compressed NTFS filesystem, and people that need a backup of their disk or make an exact copy of their disk for multiple machines, check below to see full list of features of Stellar Phoenix Partition Recovery Software, overall I like how the software work the user interface is easy to use and function works as it should be, probably the only problem I have is the software is a bit pricey for me at $99 dollars, considering I can get several open source and freeware apps to the same job, other problem is the Stellar Phoenix Data Recovery Software only works on Windows system for a guy like me that have bunch of Linux system running side by side with Windows it woul;d be a deal breaker hopefully the next release of Stellar Phoenix will support Linux, however if your looking for a simple user friendly recovery software for those accidentally deleted files and just want to install and run this is a pretty good choice.
