Every time Facebook releases a new feature to learn more about our friends, many people realise that their privacy settings are not adequate anymore. Their latest new feature, Facebook Graph Search, is no exception – many people are a little concerned about what sorts of things will be found and by whom.

Hmmm... not a HUGE picture taker and poster but even I can use a tip or to on this topic. 

Infographics have become an incredibly popular way to display bite-sized bits of information in easy to consume forms of charts, graphics and more. It usually takes quite a bit of designer know-how, patience and some pretty pricey software to get the job done, but thankfully there are quite a few services that aim to make that process a little easier.

Damn... this looks interesting. 

Remember Ceton Companion? It let Windows Media Center users control their PCs from any Android, iOS, or Windows Phone device.

So, I found this the utility last week over off of MajorGeeks.com.

Now most the time the applications or utilities that I run most of you already have and are pretty familiar with but I thought I would show you a neat little shutdown tool I started running just last week.

Now there's not a lot to this tool. The tool is a very basic auto shutdown tool that you can actually set up a rule for on your system but this interface makes it so much easier.

It runs as a service on the system, which it will need to do in order for the system to accept the shutdown or sleep or hibernate request coming from the software.

As you can see from the screenshots below it's a very basic tool and it's very easy to set up.

All you do is install the utility, and then open the utility (duh...), And then select how you would like your system to shut down and the time that you would like for it to shut down.

Normally during the week I would select for it to go to sleep because I use the system probably 12 hours a day five days a week and waking up from a sleep function is much faster than rebooting it from a cold start.

Now for those of you that would like to shut down the system every night all you have to do is select the time, make sure that you do utility is running in the background which it does by default, and then at that particular time the system will auto generate a shutdown.

Now I like this tool because I normally do my backups after my workday so that if for some reason the next morning I wake up in the system has a problem, which on occasion does happen, I have a fresh backup of the night before.

My backup software, maybe 50% of the time, if I select the checkbox a shutdown at the end of the backup will do it but sometimes it doesn't. So I have a backup shutdown utility, which is this utility, that make sure the system sleeps at midnight so the next morning when I get up all I have to do is hit my anarchy in the system fires back up again.

It's a really simple tool there's only one interface to it as you can see from the screenshots below anybody can use it.

Check it out. It's called wise auto shutdown and you can get it over off of MajorGeeks by clicking this link.

Enjoy,
