How To Connect External Hard Disk To Mobile Phone?

You can connect using a USB OTG - Y cable (or a simple USB OTG cable if your phone port has enough power). If you are using a Y cable, you need a power bank.

If your hard drive is using NTFS file format, your phone may not detect it. But you can use ES File Explorer to access it in Android. OTG Cables are cheap and you can buy a decent one on Amazon. This one has good reviews: Micro USB OTG Host Cable USB Power for Samsung Phone i9100 i9220 i9250

How To Sort Files Into Folders By Filetype in Windows

Hello Again! Today I am going to give you a little tip on tidying up your cluttered windows desktop/downloads folder. If you are a messy person who downloads or saves images, pdf and every other file on your desktop for ease of access and forgets to clean up after, you are not alone! My desktop is a mess most of the time and I hardly get time to clean it up! Same goes for my downloads folder where I have movies, music or even documents lying unattended. So, I did some research and found this awesome trick!

I am going to show you how to sort files in a folder into subfolders based on filetype in one click. After effect would be a bunch of folders like this with all your files sorted into respective folders! Now you can move them wherever you want.

Here is how to do it:

Open Windows Notepad and paste the below code:

@echo off
rem For each file in your folder
for %%a in (".\*") do (
rem check if the file has an extension and if it is not our script
if "%%~xa" NEQ ""  if "%%~dpxa" NEQ "%~dpx0" (
rem check if extension folder exists, if not it is created
if not exist "%%~xa" mkdir "%%~xa"
rem Move the file to directory
move "%%a" "%%~dpa%%~xa\"
))
And save as FolderByType.bat 
While saving the file, make sure you select type as "all files" like shown below:

Now, place the bat file in whichever folder you'd like to clean up. Double click and wait for the magic!

Caution: Don't run this batch file in system folders, root folders or installation directories. I suggest you use it in Downloads folder or Desktop where you have a large number of unsorted files.

Sony SRS-XB10 Wireless Speaker - Review

This is a product review on the Sony SRS-XB10 Wireless Speaker I bought recently. I have been looking for a wireless speaker for while now and chose this model for its smaller size and excellent bass and better battery backup. Also, it is splash proof (IPX5 rating) which means you can hang it in your bathroom while you take a shower! I got the blue variant from Amazon. It is available in four attractive colors - red, black, blue and green. I mainly use it to play music from my Sony Hi-Res Walkman or OnePlus 3T phone. You can also connect it to your laptop via Bluetooth or AUX cable. 





Here are the technical specifications: 
  • Bluetooth speakers made for electronic dance music (EDM)
  • Extra bass for deep and punchy sound
  • One-touch listening with NFC and Bluetooth
  • Up to 16 hours of battery life for longer listening hours
  • Splash proof for worry-free use
  • Built-in mic for hands-free calling
  • Compact, portable design for easy carrying
  • 46mm full range drivers with 10m wireless range
  • Frequency Range: 2.4GHz
  • Bluetooth Profiles: A2DP/AVRCP/HFP/HSP
  • Supported Codecs: SBC/AAC
  • 1400mAh battery
Pros:
Easily pairs over Bluetooth or NFC
Compact and lightweight 
Can add an additional speaker for stereo effect
Excellent bass for a portable speaker
Very reasonable battery backup of 14-16 hours
Superior build quality with rubberized body


Cons:
No display or indicator to check battery level
Sound quality disperses when used outdoors

Rating: 4/5 


All in all, I would totally recommend this if you are looking for a portable speaker with all required features and sturdy, compact design to fill your room with music!
