Flash SMS and Guardian

I happened to come across this site on google when I was searching for some new Symbian applications. Both these applications are written by the same developer – Marco Bellino and I must say they are *amazing*

What is more amazing is the fact that the developer offers these apps completely free of charge. If you want you can make a donation and enable some more features or simply use their free versions available for download from the developers site.

FlashSMS is the first Symbian Series 60 software able to send flash-sms without needing of any additional service. Nothing to
configure, just write your sms and select the recipient.

Guardian is the new antitheft system for Symbian Series 60 devices. Every time you switch on your mobile telephone, Guardian proceeds with
authentication of the inserted sim card; if authentication fails,
Guardian send a notification sms message to a previously set telephone
number. In addition, the system features remote control functions,
i.e. deleting your photographs/phone book/text messages/video/audio
data in case of loss or theft of your mobile phone (see Plugins section).

How To Improve Your Study Habits and Remember Better

I came across this article on DIGG
A real good piece of advice for last minute exam crammers like me 🙂 . If you’re a student attending classes, you have probably experienced many moments when it was hard to make yourself settle down and study, even when an important exam was coming up.
If you’re like most students, you put off studying until the very last minute. The night before the exam, you’ll stay up all night cramming, getting little or no sleep. In the morning, you’ll drag yourself out of bed, psych yourself up with lots of coffee and some cigarettes, and go into the exam feeling exhausted, drained and jittery all at the same time. You’ll find it hard to focus or think, and you’ll be cursing yourself for not starting to study sooner.
