First of all, to start enjoying all the features and options of Caliber, you need to download and install the program on our computer. For this, we go to the official website of Caliber and within Downloads section, we will find the possibility to download Caliber for Windows, Mac OS, Linux or in a portable version.
We select the one that corresponds to our team and click on download. According to our computer and Internet speed, Caliber download can last between a few seconds and more than a minute. We will automatically download an installer. The only thing to do to start the installation is to double-click on the file that we have just saved.
This will open the caliber installation wizard, which will require us to accept the terms of the license to use the tool. Tick the box and click on the button Install. This will start the template installation process and if all goes well, the tool will be installed in a few moments on our equipment.
The first time we launch Caliber, a window will appear in which you will be asked to choose the language and location of the eBooks, that is, the path to our disk where each time we add a book, it will be copied.
After clicking Next, Caliber will ask us to choose our eReader or e-book reader. On this occasion, if it is a Kindle, we choose Amazon in the list of manufacturers, then the exact model in the list of devices.
In the next step, Caliber allows us to configure the automatic sending of books by email to our Kindle. In this case, we will need to provide the Kindle e-mail address, sending address, and the configuration of the e-mail server that we want to use. Once this is complete, the installation will be complete and the Caliber interface will open on our computer.
As can be seen at first glance, the main options and functions of Caliber will have a single click. In the central part we will see our library of books, on the left you will see a list of authors, languages, genres, etc., while in the main menu that appears at the top you will find the main options of the tool to add and convert books, edit metadata, etc.
At this point, the basic process for using Caliber begins with adding books or ebooks to our library from our computer's hard drive. To do this, just click on the option Add books, which we find in Caliber's top menu and select the route where we have our ebooks stored. When adding a book, Caliber will automatically read the metadata of each of them and add them to our library.
Once we have them in the tool database, we can perform different actions, such as converting from one format to another, uploading to our Kindle, editing metadata, etc. .
In addition to the option mentioned above, in the action toolbar or menu located at the top of Caliber, we find another series of options. With option Add books, we can easily add ebooks stored on our hard drive to Caliber. Specifically, once we clicked on this option or expanded its menu options, we found the ability to add books from a single directory, also including subdirectories, from a file ZIP or RAR, add a blank book (without format), to from the ISBN or even add files to the selected book records.
If we go from left to right, the next option we find in the toolbar is Edit metadata. By clicking on this option with a selected book, a window containing all the metadata of this ebook will be displayed and from there we will be able to modify or even download them. If we click on the tab of this option and display the options that it proposes, we find that it allows us to modify the metadata separately, batch or mass, to download the metadata and the covers of our books or attach book records.
Convetir books This is the next action we find and which, as its name suggests, allows us to convert our eBooks into different formats to be compatible with our device. In this case, this option converts ebooks to Kindle easily and quickly.
With a book selected in our Caliber library, click the option Convert books and automatically we will open a window in which, in the upper left, we will see the input format of the book, while in the upper right we will find a drop-down list to choose the output format. That is, the format we want to convert. Press OK and Caliber will automatically start the process of converting the book from one format to another. Then we can go on the configured route and check how we have the book in the format we selected.
Caliber itself has an integrated book viewer. Therefore, we can preview the book before sending it to our device. To do this, simply select the book in the library and click on the option of the action bar. Show.
Next, we also find the Get Books options, which allows us to search by title or author, even in different libraries, Download News, Delete Books, Save to Disk, Connect and Share Books at the Library. 39, help a server or email, Edit a book. or enter the template settings or preferences.
From the option Template Librarywe can change the location of the library, create a new one somewhere else, or move all the books in a library from one location to another. We also find under this action the ability to export or import callibre data and perform some maintenance tasks of our library.
However, the next thing we need to do to manage our eBooks on Kindle is to connect the Amazon device to Caliber. Therefore, we connect our Amazon Kindle to the computer and Caliber will automatically detect it and we will see how a new option appears in the action bar. Apparatus.
We now have everything planned to start managing all our eBooks on the Kindle. Once we have added the books to the Caliber library, all that remains is to look for the ones we want to send on the Kindle, but we must first make sure that they are in the right format.
In general, the epub format is the most common format for downloading eBooks. It is therefore normal that before sending them to our reader, we had to convert them. As we saw earlier, because this caliber offers us the action Convert the book. Then we choose the Kindle compatible book format and we are waiting for Caliber to convert him.
With the ebook in the right format and ready in our Caliber library, the only thing we need to do to have it on our Kindle available to start reading it is to select it from the library, click on it with right mouse button and select the option Send to the device.
From there, we can choose whether to send it directly to the Kindle's internal memory or send a memory card. Whatever it is, once this is done, the ebook will be sent to the Kindle so we have it available. In addition to connecting our Amazon Kindle via cable to the PC to synchronize it with Caliber, it is also possible to use the WiFi technology of some of these devices to send books to our devices without the need of cables. This not forgetting the possibility that Caliber also offers for cShare books by email.
However, the easiest way to send ebooks on the Kindle is from your own Amazon store. From there, we can buy ebooks and put books on the Kindle in a very simple way because they are stored in their own cloud and we can quickly transfer them to the device. For that, all we have to do is buy the ebook and then we access our Kindle where we have access. Manage content and devices in our account and there we will see all the books we bought.
Now, to put books on the Kindle, just click on the menu button and select the option Send to our Kindle. In a few moments, we'll see how the selected ebook is already available on the Kindle to start reading at any time.
When it comes to managing a large number of ebooks or eBooks in electronic format, a tool that will help us day in and day out is undoubtedly the possibility of having a tool that will allows us to run search quickly and easily, as well as the organization of our books by collections or labels. In this sense, Caliber offers us these options so that we can manage our eBooks for Kindle and completely free.
The most basic tasks for managing your eBooks in Caliber have already been mentioned above, ie Add Books, Delete Books, or Edit Books. However, on a day-to-day basis, many other functions can facilitate research or book organization tasks. In this sense, Caliber also offers us the possibility of edit the metados of bookscarry out custom searches or see a list of all our ebooks by title, author, labels, etc.
The first thing to organize all our books in Caliber is create our own library. For that, just go to the action Template Library, indicate the route where we want to store e-books and voila. As previously mentioned, we will also find options for creating new libraries, changing locations or moving books from one place to another.
In addition, Caliber offers us another feature to effectively manage our eBooks: create virtual invoice libraries. Unlike the traditional library, the virtual version is created in our library and helps us apply smart filters to search our books. A very useful tool especially when you have a large catalog of ebooks in caliber. We can create a virtual library from the option that has the same name and is located just below the Add a book icon in the Caliber action bar.
To keep everything in order, Caliber also allows us to edit the metadata of our books. And it is that all the data that we insert in each book allows us to identify them quickly and catalog them as we wish. As we mentioned above, Caliber allows us to edit the metadata individually for each book, but it also gives us the ability to do it en masse.
On the left side of Caliber we find the tag scanner, which allows us to browse the collection of books by author, series, language, label, etc. The outermost elements of the explorer also receive the name of cateogorias, able to create new categories so that it is more useful and easier to organize our books.
To do this we need to click on the tool icon at the bottom of the browser and access the option Manage authors, labels, etc.> User categories. There, we will be able to create certain categories, such as our favorite authors, to later assign the elements corresponding to this category. These categories of users can also have subcategories, which allows us to create the structure needed to organize our books as we please.
Although for many it is something unknown, the BIOS is one of the main responsible for the operation of our PC. So, if our BIOS is damaged or does not work, our team it will not work either. It is also responsible for improving the startup of the operating system once the computer is turned on, asking our hardware to read the software and communicate with all devices to verify that everything is correct.
For this reason, many users decide put a password to the BIOSbecause they can prevent anyone with access to our PC to access and start our computer via another computer Windows or Linux installed on a USB key. So we alone or to whom we provide this password, access the system.
Needless to say, if someone changes our BIOS or if an attack or malware with which we are infected damages the BIOS, we will not be able to access our computer. Therefore, adding a password to the BIOS is a quite efficient task in terms of security. So much so that HP has incorporated in some of its equipment what is called the name HP Sure Start.
A technology that offers a solution to the problems we may encounter with the BIOS. It is based on hardware that detects and neutralizes malware and security attacks on the BIOS itself. In short, a Self-healing BIOS, that is, able to detect and repair our BIOS if it has been damaged by an agent. In a few seconds, we will have a correct version of the BIOS and we can continue to use the equipment as if nothing had happened.
Specifically, HP Sure Start checks to see if the BIOS has been attacked and, if so, will rewrite the BIO automatically with the version that it records in the hardware of the motherboard. This way, if the HP technology detects a bug in the BIOS, it will be replaced by the automatically saved copy. In a few seconds, we will see how it is automatically repaired and we will be able to access our computer without any problem.
A feature that some equipment in the range have already HP Elitebook x360, and it's not the only one in terms of security, because they also incorporate what the manufacturer calls Multifactor authentication. A system that allows users to identify or connect with an infrared camera, a fingerprint sensor or a smart card reader.
But the truth is that HP integrates other features related to the security of computers when browsing the Internet, because we can find some functions let you know if a link is dangerous before clicking on it o prevent someone around us from seeing the information on our screen and steal some data.
But if we do not have an HP computer with this technology, follow these steps to assign a boot password to the BIOS so that no one can access the system.
For that, the first thing to do is to turn on the computer or to turn it back on if we turned it on and to access the BIOS by pressing the keys Delete, Escape, F2, F8 or the corresponding ones according to the manufacturer or the model of our map. . Once there, we go to the security section, assign a password in the field Supervisor password then we activate it at startup by setting the value Startup password on Enabled. From now on, each time the system is restarted, you will be asked to enter the password set to access the system.
In case we want to reset this password, because we have forgotten, we can choose several methods. If our equipment is a desktop computer, we can directly reset the BIOS removing the CMOS battery from the motherboard. This will turn off the power of the BIOS and erase all memory.
However, this is not one of the most accessible methods for everyone. Moreover, if we have a laptop, this method is not feasible. In any case, there is another much simpler way to reset the BIOS password. It is necessary to introduce a bad key several times until the BIOS lock is activated. This will show us a message where we will be informed of this situation with a code.
We indicate this number and, from another PC or device with an Internet connection, we visit the web. BIO Master Password Generator and enter that number. We click on the button Get the password and then we will be shown a list of possible marks and passwords. Copy the one that corresponds to our template and restart the computer to enter the password. If all goes well, the password will have been restored and we will be able to access the system.
It is important to know that some manufacturers may not offer this option. Therefore, we will not have the choice of reset via hardware. In this case, it is best that we contact the manufacturer's support team directly.
The version 2.19.151 for Android, it has two hidden features that have not been released yet. The first is Share on Facebook, o Share on Facebook, which will allow us to share WhatsApp stories directly on Facebook. Although Instagram stories are the most used, in the case of Facebook and WhatsApp, the popularity is not very good.
In April, we learned that this feature would be coming soon on WhatsApp, and the company has already implemented it in a hidden way. If we have the Facebook application installed on the mobile, we will see an option in WhatsApp that will define "Add to Facebook's story". Thanks to him, we can send reports that have photos, videos, gifs or text. Unfortunately, the process does not seem to be automated, so you have to do it manually with each story.
Yesterday, WhatsApp also unveiled something known for six months, but that the company has not yet confirmed: will include advertising in the states. This function" It will arrive in 2020, and this can encourage many users to no longer use the app and to use other free and better alternatives without advertising, as is the case with Telegram. Fortunately, if you do not use the United States, you will not see this advertisement in the app.
Soon to @WhatsApp…
– WhatsApp status (Stories) to get ads in 2020
– WhatsApp for businesses to get richer email format options
– WhatsApp product catalog to be integrated into existing Facebook Business Manager catalog
– Matt Navarra (@MattNavarra) May 21, 2019
At the level of the QR codes, WhatsApp also works for six months in a function allowing us to share our contact with another person via the scan a QR code directly into the app. To be able to use it, the section Profile of our mobile contains a small icon representing a QR code. When you tap on it, a QR code appears with our data so that other people can scan it.
For the code to work, it is necessary to have an Internet connection and we must pay attention to who we share it. In the event that it would end up in the hands of someone we do not want, we can cancel the code and generate a new one, so that the old one does not work anymore or does nothing when his analysis in WhatsApp.
The biggest beneficiaries of this function will be mainly the companies that use WhatsApp Business, because they will be able to insert the QR code in their establishment so that the user can scan it and contact it directly since the application. This feature will be available in the future, as well as others that WhatsApp unveiled yesterday also officially, because that companies can offer us. products through catalogs within the application itself.
Although the news of this version does not pop up in the Google Play Store, it confirms that it is now based on Firefox 60.7 ESR, Version 2.1.8 of Torbutton and version 2019.5.6.1 of HTTPS Everywhere. If we look for data on these versions of these applications and components, we can better understand the changes and developments.
At the general level, we have a browser with navigation with tabs, private mode and other basic functions that Firefox offers us. The good thing is that with Tor Browser for Android, it's no longer necessary to use external add-ons such as Orbot to access the anonymous Tor network since everything is integrated with this browser.
If we know how it works in Windows, the Android app is pretty much the same thing. Just open it, we'll have to wait for the connection to be established with the anonymous Tor network, and then we'll be able to surf without any problem, either via the "normal" web or via Deep Web and Dark Web.
The browser automatically hangs trackers, scripts and any object which is used for tracking and identifying the user, in addition to automatically cleaning the cookies generated at each session. With Tor Browser for Android, anonymity when browsing from your mobile is one step closer.

Microsoft also states on its blog today that the update may take a few hours to appear to all users, although it should appear to anyone wishing to perform the update in the next 24 hours , depending on the markets and the languages in which they are located. .
In case it does not appear there, you have the opportunity to go to this link download the Upgrade Tool (Upgrade wizard to Windows 10), in which we can force the update of the operating system directly on our computer. In the case of wanting to perform an installation from scratch, the download ISO it's already available on the Media Creation Tool page in the same link as the upgrade tool, you just have to go down a bit further and click on "download tool now".
There is Reasons for Upgrading to Windows 10, May 5, 2019 Update, and much more Reasons Not to Upgrade to Windows 10 Updated May 2010so we can not recommend everyone to install the update immediately because it can cause compatibility issues and even screenshots. blue if you play old games. Fortunately, you can always go back to the previous version.
If you do not know if you want to update, it's best to do nothing. It is Microsoft that will automatically install the update on your computer when you have verified that people with similar hardware and programs have not encountered any problems in the software. process If you want to update and you see an error, make sure that you do not have a USB flash drive, SD card or SD card reader connected, Microsoft has not yet solved the bug that changes the order of external storage units.
From now on, Microsoft will start working on Windows 10 19H2 and will test the latest developments and improvements of 20H1 to make sure they work properly.
Microsoft has not released the full list of news, but our SoftZone colleagues have recently collected some of the most important news of the May 2019 update.
The security we use in our devices depends on the type of person we are. For example, if we are mere mortals and we have no clear enemies, the two-step verification is the best. However, if we are a famous person, a person who uses our phone number and our personal data can escape us, generate a duplicate SIM card, and receive the verification SMS to change the passwords of our accounts. It is also possible that they can read the SMS that we receive if they use a fake mobile antenna, better known as IMSI sensors.
Most users will never be hacked into this style because they are quite complicated to achieve. To protect ourselves, we must essentially do two things: use secure and unique passwords (that is, do not reuse between two or more accounts) and enable two-step verification.
Thus, even if one of our passwords is filtered on the network, they will never be able to access any other accounts than the original one. And even if they try to access this account directly, this attempt will be quickly blocked during the two-step verification.
In collaboration with the University of New York and the University of California, Google has shown how safe this method is. Thus, an SMS sent on the mobile of a person can Avoid 100% automated attacks via robots that use databases of hundreds of millions of passwords. In turn, it is also effective against 96% of phishing attacks, the remaining 4% being those that also enter the verification code on fake web pages.
Among the other methods analyzed, the only one that was able to stop all possible attacks was a physical security key, which is introduced into the devices when we connect. These keys are designed to protect even the most sensitive accounts. In the case of the study, they discovered that they had managed to block automated attacks using robots and phishing, as well as those targeting specific targets, which often occurs in the past. international espionage. by hacking groups of countries like Russia. Google claims that only one million hacking attempt is an attack of this type designed to hack a particular person.
In summary, the summary of the study is clear: enable two-step verification in as many services as you can, this will save you many fears in the future. You can use your own mobile as a security key Access the Google Account, but avoid using Google Titan keys, which have been removed from the market due to vulnerabilities.
