BBox Audio Player

BBox is a free music player for Windows that looks more like MS Office than a music player, thanks to it’s ribbon based interface. In fact, it’s the first media player I have come across that sports the ribbon.

BBox lets you play, edit, convert and manage audio files, rip CDs, and also enjoy online radio stations.


The program interface has various collapsible sections like the library, Queue, player controls, album information, equalizer etc, all housed inside the program window. These can be set to display or hide by clicking the appropriate buttons on the ribbon.

To start using BBox first you have to add folders to the music library and let the program index your music files. Once that is completed you can select songs from the library and add it to the queue window, which is the playlist. Filters let you quickly locate files in the library for playing.

BBox has several tools like an MP3 tag editor with advanced auto-capitalize options, CD ripper, Internet Radio player with built in stations, and file organizer that lets you relocate you music files according to artists and album and automatically rename them by track name.

Whenever the computer is lagging or some application is taking too long to respond, we usually fire up task manager and look under the Performance tab or under Processes to check on processor utilization or the amount of free memory available. The task manager is ideal for real-time analysis of CPU and memory utilization. It even displays a short history of CPU utilization in the form of a graph.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run.
