Which software do you use for viewing/reading PDF files?
I stopped using Adobe’s Acrobat reader YEARS back. The last one I had on my system was 6.x I think.
Basically I avoid installing heavy, bloated and sometimes redundant software on my PC. It’s a universal truth that you cannot do without a PDF reader no matter which operating system you have. So if it’s not Abode, there has to be something else. When I run Linux, there’s built-in PDF reader and I dont know who developed it. But while on windows I had to look for alternative & Foxit PDF reader does a great job replacing giant Adobe. And the best part is it’s available for Linux and mobiles. You can download the software directly for windows and get rid of Adobe, permanently! Once installed you’re promised it will not eat up your memory, space or CPU power in background. It’s a NO BLOAT software. (I drafted this post more than year ago but never get time to upload it & this time I check there website they’ve written same stuff about it- it’s a no bloat software… haha)This time when I check the website they’ve plety of PDF solutions to offer. It’s really great alternative to Adobe’s monopoly over PDF reader.

I am glad to introduce this ‘first-of-its-kind’, full-proof, innovative mobile application to you.
Pune based mobile application development firm Optinno Mobitech Pvt. Ltd. today announced the launch of first-of-its-kind mobile application ‘Mobiwatchman‘. True to its name, it is an innovative mobile application that can be a savior for millions of cellphone users who are frustrated due to incessant calls and spammy SMSes. Mobiwatchman gives the options to block unwanted calls and SMS with various filter levels thereby giving the choice to set the privacy level. What surprised me is it even blocks Hin-glish spam SMS.
Announcing the launch, the founder and CEO of Optinno Mobitech Pvt. Ltd. & my closed friend, Mr Sagar Bedmutha said, “Mobiwatchman is developed considering the Indian user and ways & extent of unsolicited mass marketing in India. Mobiwatchman effectively empowers you and gives you full control on what calls and SMS you receive. It is India’s first native SMS and call blocking application. Although ‘National Do Not Call’ (NDNC) registry, Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) have taken sincere efforts to reduce the amount of mobile spam, mobile spammers always find ways to bypass the restrictions of NDNC registry. That is the reason why you receive scores of unsolicited marketing calls and SMS even after registering with NDNC registry.”
In terms of features and at a one time price of just Rs. 199, Mobiwatchman scores much above than other spam blocking options like operator’s filter services, other paid applications.
The application is currently developed targeting Nokia phones and can be used on all Symbian S60 devices. More information and online purchase options are available on www.mobiwatchman.com.

The wordpress theme currently I’m using is build for Amrute.Me online network.
I first made this wordpress theme available for downloads in June 2009. And now I’ve realised that I must write a log of all changes that I make in the theme, including the release date. Automatic upgrade option is also in my mind but it’ll be done later.
The version number will be given according to the date, month & year of the release of the new theme.
For instance the current version/or the latest updated theme available currently has 10.1 version, Meaning: I released it in year 10 & 1st month, hence 10.1

1000 series documents for verbal studies, are free study materials with literally tons of practise problems.
The documents were made by ScoreTop.com, the premium online GMAT forums that is now sued by GMAC. If you’re curious about “When, why and how GMAC banned it?” you should visit scoretop.com site itself. It is history now and people, especially other GMAT forum administrators learned the lesson from the case. We at Beat The GMAT been following story. This thread cautioning users not to post Scoretop material or even visit the site will shed more light on the matter.
History apart there’s no doubt that 1000 series document used to be popular among GMAT students. I receive several requests for these documents each month, so I’m making these available to all fellow MBA aspirants. According to the source, these documents are actually the compilation of GMAT type questions, taken from several sources, including OG, official guides for GMAT review, which has retired, real GMAT questions. The Critical Reasoning and Reading Comprehension (CR & RC) sets have questions borrowed from LSAT & GRE as well, making it very huge list of problems.
Did you know that 1000 RC doc has 3000 problems not 1000!! Follow my 1000 SC/ series related articles and you’ll find more info about these also you’ll notice that I do not actually recommend these materials. Nevertheless, they’re good if you dont wanna spend any money and want loads of practise problems.
Check following posts to download respective files.
Note: I do not encourage you to use live GMAT questions for you GMAT preparation. (Live questions are those which are recently tested in GMAT exam, which are still float on GMAT question bank. ) I’ve removed password protection from these files. Now they are easy to download. Enjoy!
I’ve compressed it. And it’s not a typo, the file name is indeed 3000 RC because it contains nearly 3000 Reading comprehension questions and not 1000 questions. Download and unzip the 1000 RC docs.
