Today’s ubiquitous URL shorteners have seen a dramatic increase in popularity the last couple of years – much of it driven by the rise in popularity of Twitter itself. They are great for keeping character count at a minimum or to make sharing easier. Some even bring a few unique features to the table, like enabling statistics or the ability to select your own keyword, but as convenient as shorteners are they also introduce some new issues.

There’s significant variance from one service to another when it comes to uptime, for example, while on the other hand given that the process involves using an HTTP redirect there’s also the latency issue. But perhaps more importantly is the fact that they obscure the target address and thus may be used to trick users to an unexpected destination.

This means users are susceptible to something as innocent as being rickrolled to potentially much more harmful exposure, like being redirected to scamming websites or malware-ridden pages. Fortunately, there are several ways to peek behind a shortened URL to see exactly where the link will take you before clicking it, so let’s take a quick look at a few of them.

Checking short URLs manually

All major URL shortening services offer an option to preview what’s behind their links, so you can know exactly what you are visiting and thus avoid surprises. Shortening services and Google’s own, for example, will show you additional stuff like total clicks, a QR code, shares on social networking sites and the fully expanded URL, simply by appending a plus sign at the end of the shortened address (

Unfortunately not all services offer the ability to preview the original address before visiting it. If someone else sends you a shortened link from one of these sites and you want to preview it, you may still be able to do so using a third-party service. and LongURL offer this functionality.

Automating the process: Browser add-ons and bookmarklets.

Reach out to your potential customers and clients  with our robust platform.  

The above options are fine for checking the occasional link but when you’re dealing with shortened URLs on a regular basis it’s better to automate this process rather than editing links manually or copying them to another website. Firefox users can save a lot of time through a simple extension. offers its own service-specific add-on but if you want to cover the full spectrum of URL shorteners get the one provided by Long URL Please.

Google Chrome also has two extensions available that expand shortened URLs (as suggested by readers – thanks!). Or in case Opera is your favorite poison. Links will be automatically replaced with their original address but keeping the same number of characters.

Users of other browsers can get the same functionality by installing the Long URL Please or Expand My Url bookmarklet.

Simply drag one of the previous links to your bookmarks bar and clicking them will replace any short links in the active page with their original address while keeping the same number of characters.


In order to address the disorderly way most people catalogue their data, Windows 7 introduced a new system that let’s users point a Library to various folders (Pictures or Documents, for example). All of the included folders can then be accessed in one uniformed location. This methodology displaces the older and rigid folder structure, which made it difficult to index files that were scattered throughout your drives.

As handy as the new Libraries functionality is, there’s one glaring omission: we can’t find an easy built-in way to change the Library icons. Granted, this isn’t a major deal for some people because the four default Libraries (Documents, Music, Pictures and Videos) are sufficient for the average person’s data and they have nice looking icons. However, if you add a new Library, you’re stuck with a generic Windows 7-style documents icon, and that just won’t fly with us perfectionists, will it?

Fret not. If you have five minutes and a shred of fortitude, we’ll show you how to ditch that lame default icon. For now, decide whether you want to get your hands dirty (method #1) or you’d rather save a couple of minutes by using a utility (method #2). For what it’s worth, we recommend going with the second route for the sake of simplicity. The process is much easier and it’s not like you’re going to impress anyone by dealing with a few script text files (and yet we will still show you).

Method #1 – The hard way

  1. Open a text editor (Notepad will do)
  2. Go to the following Windows directory: %appdata%\microsoft\windows\libraries
  3. Drag the Library icon you want to change into Notepad
  4. Among the several lines of text that appear should be one that reads something like this: <iconReference>imageres.dll,-1001</iconReference>
  5. Now, all you have to do is swap dll,-1001for the directory or file where your icon is located, as well as its place within the file. For instance, the icon in the example below is located at imageres.dll,124 which seems to fit well for a Work-oriented Library.

Naturally, you won’t know this information offhand, but the free application Icon Viewer will let you browse the contents of a DLL file and it will even give you an icon’s location number. Once you’ve found your desired icon, save the changes in Notepad and your new icon will appear.

Method #2 – The easy way

This method automates the above process with a simple GUI and even includes an icon viewer. All you have to do is download and run this utility, type in one of the DLL files mentioned below (or stick with the default imageres.dll), choose an icon, select the library you’d like to apply it to and click Select icon from dll.

It’s worth mentioning that some icons look pretty terrible in the utility’s icon browser, but they’re actually attractive, high-res images. If you think something might fit your Library well, give it a chance before you dismiss it for being ugly, after all you can roll back any changes with the click of a button (Restore default icon).

Where to find icons within Windows?

For your reference, here are some additional DLLs with icons: ddores.dll (mostly hardware-related), shell32.dll (hundreds of assorted icons), wmp.dll (a few media-related icons), moricons.dll (various low-res, old school Windows icons).

Want more icons? Check these out: compstui.dll, mmcndmgr.dll, netshell.dll, pnidui.dll, wmploc.DLL,,, and as always, feel free to share your resources in the comments.


One of the reasons behind Firefox’s sustained popularity is the availability of a vast library of extensions. At a time when Microsoft ruled the roost with a crushing 90+% share of the browser market, Mozilla was able to build a loyal following by offering a way for third-party developers to extend its browser functionality and for users to customize it to their liking. Eventually new competitors arrived to reinvigorate the scene and today most of them offer their own extensions platform.

But expanding functionality through these add-ons can have some downsides of their own. For example, most of them are not cross-platform, so if you decide to try another browser your favorite extensions might not be available. There’s also the possibility some of them will break with every major release of your browser, or even worse, poorly coded ones can significantly slow down your browser’s performance.

Enter ‘bookmarklets’ — small applets stored as an URL that are designed to add 1-click functionality to a browser or web page. They are JavaScript-enabled links you can pull into your bookmarks to interact with whatever page you find yourself on. Granted, they might not offer the level of functionality some of the more advanced browser extensions do, but they certainly come in handy and can sometimes be as simple as a single line of code.

From a simple “mail page to” script to a spelling checker to an HTML debugger, all you need to do to enable them is drag a link to your favorites – typically you bookmarks toolbar – and that’s that. There is no installation involved and they’ll work with any modern browser. Here are a few popular ones you might be interested in trying out:

Download YouTube Etc gives you links to download standard, HQ (high quality), and HD (high definition) versions of videos directly from YouTube in a number of formats, including FLV, MP4, MP3, and AVI. It works not only on YouTube pages, but also on any public website with an embedded video from this and a variety of other sources, such as,, and a few more.

GmailThis! shows a Gmail pop-up pre-populated with a link to the site you are visiting, as well as any text you have highlighted on that page. Add additional text if you wish and then email or save as draft from within GmailThis! helps you capture your thoughts quickly and easily by letting you write notes and drawings on top of any web page. You can then share this with co-workers, colleagues, and friends.

Instapaper, this one actually requires you to sign up for their service but it won’t take more than 5 seconds and it’s worth it. The basic premise is that we discover web content throughout the day, and sometimes, we don’t have time to read long articles right when we find them. With a simple click on this bookmarklet you can save a text-only version for later so you don’t just forget to skim through them. It gets more useful if you install it on all your computers.

Marklets actually gives you access to a massive index of bookmarklets within the bookmarklet itself. Simply click on it and a mini-interface with a search prompt will appear, in which you can type whatever you want to do (for example, “spelling”) and a list of results related to that term will appear. The interesting part is that you can click on any of them and the bookmarklet will actually run, so you don’t need to clutter your toolbar with anything you’ll only use occasionally.

This is just a short list of bookmarklets that we’ve found useful, but your favorites will certainly vary depending on which services you rely the most.

  1. Click Next.It’s at the bottom of the screen.
  2. Make sure “.zip” is selected.You’ll see this option below the “File type” heading near the top of this page. ZIP files can be opened on nearly any computer simply by double-clicking them. They also take up less space than the other file options in the “File type” menu.
  3. Click the box under the “Archive size (max)” heading.Doing so will prompt a drop-down menu with different maximum download sizes:
  • 1GB
  • 2GB
  • 4GB
  1. Click a download size.Anything larger than your selected file size will carry over into a new file. For example, if you choose “4GB” but your file is 6GB, you’ll end up downloading two files: a 4GB file and a 2GB file.
  2. Click the box beneath the “Delivery method” heading.You’ll see several ways of receiving your backup file here:

Send download link via email – Receive a link for the download file in your current Gmail address. Clicking the link will prompt your file to download.

Add to Drive – Place the download file in Google Drive. Doing so will take up Google Drive storage.

Add to Dropbox – Place the download file in your connected Dropbox account (if you have one).

Add to OneDrive – Place the download file in your connected OneDrive account (if you have one).

  1. Click a delivery method.Keep in mind your maximum archive size when you do this, since your download file might be too large for cloud storage.
  2. Click Create archive.Doing so will begin backing up your Gmail account to your selected file type. Depending on how many emails you have, this process may take hours (or even days) to complete.


If you bounce between various computers for work and personal use, you’ll want to make sure you’re signed out of your Gmail accounts when those devices aren’t in use. More importantly, if a laptop or mobile device becomes lost or stolen, or you had to borrow a laptop in a rush and forgot to log out; or when you need to allow someone to use your main PC — where you keep your session active — while you are away, it’s crucial to know how to disconnect your private accounts from it immediately. Logging out of Gmail from multiple devices is simple and can be done in two quick clicks.

Here’s how it’s done:

  1. Log in to Gmail from any web browser and scroll down to the bottom of your inbox.
  2. You should see tiny print that says “Last account activity.” Click the “Details” button right below it.
  3. Press the “sign out all other web sessions” button to remotely log out of Gmail from computers in other locations. You can also view a list of devices that have signed into your Gmail account recently underneath this button.

If you just need to make sure you’re logged out everywhere, a single click will do the trick. However, you could also take some time to examine those sessions and identify whether there’s any activity you should worry about or long forgotten apps that you no longer want to grant access.

Particularly in the first column titled “Access Type” you’ll be able to see the browser, device, application or mail server (like POP or IMAP) that you accessed Gmail from. If you don’t recognize the activity on the page, like a location or access type, someone might have access to your account as a result of a phishing scam or malware, and you should change your password immediately.

For entries that read Authorized Applications you can click on Show details and then on Manage Account Access. From here you’ll get a full list of every application that you have granted access to your Gmail, and clicking on an entry will reveal the date this access was granted, along with details of what the app has access to and a Remove button to revoke its authorization.




Who Is Using Cellphones?

McCormick believes the result of damage from cellphone radiation may not be fully realized for another 10 or 15 years as a major portion of the population has been using this technology for only about 15 years. While that may seem like a long time, it may take even more years before damage is acknowledged.

The largest danger to the population exists with children who use their phones more frequently and for longer periods of time each day than adults, starting from the time they’re very young. The average age a child receives their first smartphone is just over 10 years, and half of children under 10 already have a smartphone.

Children in the U.K. spend four hours or more each day on their mobile phones, with that number increasing over school breaks by up to two hours a day. American students spend close to double that time, with teens using media nine hours a day and college students up to 10 hours each day.

Dr. Jonathan Samet, a pulmonary physician and epidemiologist at the University of Southern California, supervised the report from the World Health Organization’s (WHO) International Agency for Research on Cancer that classified cellphones as possibly carcinogenic to humans; he comments “Pretty soon, the whole world’s population will be exposed to radiation from devices from an early age. It’s something that should be taken very seriously, and we should be doing our best to understand if there’s any risk.”

A group of 255 scientists from across the world, including Columbia University, Harvard and the University of Southern California, wrote a letter to WHO about their concerns regarding the pervasive exposure to electromagnetic fields and the organizations response, writing: “By not taking action, the WHO is failing to fulfill its role as the pre-eminent international public health agency. The various agencies setting safety standards have failed to impose sufficient guidelines to protect the general public, particularly children who are more vulnerable to the effects of (electromagnetic fields).”

MASSIVE Increase in Your Exposure to This Non-Native EMF

According the WHO, the average background radiation worldwide in 2000 was less than 1 microwatt per centimeter squared. I realize most of you are not familiar with this measurement but it is the standard energy measurement for microwave radiation in the U.S. The important point is that it was LESS THAN 1 microwatt per centimeter squared literally 17 years ago. As I show in the video above, it can go to well over 100 times that. I have done many measurements since I shot this video to find it rise well over 500 times higher.

This is why it is so important to keep your phone in airplane mode when you aren’t using it. But it is not only your phone; it is also your Wi-Fi router that can easily push levels over 500 to 1,000 microwatts per centimeter squared. So, ideally, you will want to keep your Wi-Fi off whenever possible, and certainly at night. The concern about this massive and relatively recent increase in this EMF exposure is largely related to its ability to generate peroxynitrite, which I discuss in more detail in the next section.

Peroxynitrite at the Heart of Cellphone Damage

Peroxynitrite is an unstable structural ion produced in your body after nitric oxide is exposed to superoxide. This complex chemical process begins with exposure to low-frequency microwave radiation from your cellphone, Wi-Fi and cellphone towers.

The process begins when low-frequency microwave radiation activates voltage-gated calcium channels (VGCC), producing calcium inside your cells and mitochondria. Nitic oxide is dependent on the presence of calcium to activate. With additional calcium present, nitric oxide is then activated in the cells.  Nitric oxide is a substance present in all vertebrates, and helps to control blood flow, neural activity and clotting. While it has many health benefits, it can become destructive when superoxide molecules, an ionized oxygen molecule, is released during pathological change, such as a stroke or muscle injury.

This reaction between nitric oxide and superoxide produces peroxynitrites, believed to be one root cause for many of today’s chronic diseases. Nitric oxide is the only molecule in your body produced at high enough concentrations to outcompete other molecules for superoxide and is a precursor for peroxynitrite.

Peroxynitrite in Your Body

Once formed, peroxynitrite reacts relatively slowly with biological molecules, making it a selective oxidant. Inside your body, peroxynitrites modify tyrosine molecules in proteins to create a new substance, nitrotyrosine and nitration of a structural protein.

These changes from nitration are visible in human biopsies of atherosclerosis, myocardial ischemia, inflammatory bowel disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and septic lung disease. Significant oxidative stress from peroxynitrites may also result in single-strand breaks of DNA.

This pathway of oxidative destruction triggered by low-frequency radiation emitted from mobile devices may partially explain the unprecedented growth rate of chronic disease since 1990. This, truly, is a FAR greater concern than brain tumors, when it comes to the hazards of cellphones.

Information from the scientific literature reveals a dramatic acceleration in a single generation in the prevalence of a long list of diseases. Once you understand that cellphones can contribute to these chronic diseases — not just brain tumors — you may be more apt to take a few precautions to limit your exposure.

Protect Yourself and Your Family From Long-Term Health Damage

While cellphone use is ubiquitous, and there’s no turning back now, there are strategies you can use to protect yourself from RF radiation emitted from these devices. Remember, your cellphone, portable phone, Wi-Fi router and modems are the primary devices in your home emitting microwave radiation consistently. To protect yourself and your family, get in the habit of using these strategies regularly. Cell damage builds over time. It may feel safe to use your devices as you always have since you don’t experience the health effects immediately, but it definitely is not.

  1. Keep the phone away from your head: Consider moving your cellphone away from your head when it’s turned on or the Wi-Fi, data or Bluetooth are enabled. You may do this by using a selfie-stick, speaking on the speaker phone or using a headset. Short conversations and texting more than talking also reduce your exposure.
  2. Increase your distance from RF-emitting devices: The closer the device, the more radiation you absorb. Find a way to transport your phone other than you pants pocket or bra, and avoid keeping your phone and tablets in your bedroom while you’re sleeping.
  • Turn off your Wi-Fi routers: When they aren’t in use, such as at night, turn your Wi-Fi, modem and cellphone off. Many routers can be linked with an inexpensive remote, making the process simple and easy.
  1. Spices may reduce damage: Researchers have discovered certain spices may help prevent or repair damage from peroxynitrites. Spices rich in phenolics, specifically cloves, rosemary, turmeric, cinnamon and ginger root exhibited some protective capacity against peroxynitrite-induced damage.

However, while this is good news, it is not a reason to ignore strategies that reduce your exposure to electromagnetic radiation, since your home is not the only place you are at risk. Any public venue that hosts Wi-Fi or has a cellular tower nearby increases your exposure to microwave radiation.


What’s the easiest and best way to transfer all your data from your old iPhone to your brand new iPhone 7? This way!

When you get your shiny — or matte! — New iPhone 7, you’ll need to move all your old data to its new home. Whether you’re using iTunes a cable, or iCloud and the internet, the first thing you’ll need to do is backup your old iPhone, then restore everything to your new iPhone. The process is straight forward but I’ll walk you through it every step of the way!

Here’s the deal: If you make an encrypted backup of your old iPhone using iTunes, then restore it to your new iPhone, it’ll bring most — if not all — your password information along with it. That’ll save you a lot of time and effort getting set back up. You do need a Lightning to USB cable (or 30-pin Dock to USB if you have an iPhone 4s or earlier), and you’ll still have to re-download apps — the App Store gives you slightly different versions for each device, optimized to run best on that specific hardware — but overall I still find it to be much, much faster.

  1. Make sure you’re running the most recent version of iTunes.
  2. Plug your old iPhoneinto your Mac or Windows PC.
  3. Launch iTunes.
  4. Click on the iPhone iconin the menu bar when it appears.
  5. Click on Back Up Now.
  6. Click on Encrypt Backupand add a password.
  7. Skip Backup Apps, if asked. (They’ll likely re-download anyway.)
  8. Unplug your old iPhonewhen done.
  9. Turn off your old iPhone.
  10. Take your SIM cardout of your old iPhone. (If you don’t have a new or separate SIM card for your new phone.)

Wait for the backup to complete before proceeding.

  1. Put your SIM cardinto your new iPhone. (If it didn’t come with a new or different SIM card.)
  2. Turn on your new iPhone.
  3. Plug your new iPhoneinto your Mac or Windows PC.
  4. Slide to set upon your iPhone.
  5. Follow the directions to choose your language and set up your Wi-Fi network.
  6. Select Restore from iTunes backup.
  7. On iTuneson your Mac or Windows PC, select Restore from this backup.
  8. Choose your recent backupfrom the list.
  9. Enter your passwordif your backup was encrypted and it asks.

Keep your iPhone plugged into iTunes until the transfer is complete, and on Wi-Fi until all re-downloads are complete. Depending on how much data you have to re-download, including music and apps, it might take a while.

Your iPhone might feel warm or even hot, and you might burn a lot of battery life for the first few hours or even a day or due to the radios working and the Spotlight search system indexing. Just let it finish.
