By the time you read this, there are roughly seven weeks remaining until Microsoft's free Windows 10 upgrade offer expires on July 30. After that, you're going to have to pay US$119 to upgrade your PC to the latest and greatest Windows.  If you've been on the fence – if you're still running Windows 7 or especially Windows 8.1 – it's probably time to upgrade to Windows 10.  The past few weeks especially, Microsoft has been making headlines by using tactics to promote the upgrade that are annoying at best and misleadingly icky at worst. It's not a flattering look for Microsoft to push Windows 10 on people so aggressively, especially when there are plenty of good reasons to stay on older versions of Windows.  But if you can get past that, and if you don't have a pressing and immediate reason to stay with an older version, there are lots of great reasons to upgrade, and not a lot of reasons to hesitate.  First and foremost, Windows 10 is just plain nice to use. I have found lately that I can get more done on a Windows 10 machine such as Microsoft’s own Surface Book than on an Apple Macbook. With Windows 10,

Bluetooth 5 is coming, will be faster, support longer range PDF Print E-mail

Thursday, 09 June 2016 20:07

Last year the Bluetooth Special Interest Group announced that the next generation of its wireless data transmission standard would be faster and work over greater distances, all without increasing power consumption. Now we have a name for that next-gen technology: Bluetooth 5. The Bluetooth SIG says the official announcement is coming on June 16th. Bluetooth 5 is expected to be up to four times faster than Bluetooth 4.x Low Energy, while the range is said to be doubled. The increased range might not matter much if you’re trying to connect a wireless mouse or keyboard to your computer, or wireless headphones or a smartwatch to your phone. But it means you could transmit sound to a Bluetooth speaker from much further away… and it have other applications. For example, Bluetooth 5 could be used to connect smart home products to one another or to a hub or gateway. And Bluetooth beacons would be able to more easily deliver location-based information to users as they travel through stores, museums, or streets. source:liliputing

 
Windows 10 Redstone Brings Background Process Improvements PDF Print E-mail

A little too late to be talking about these background process improvements in Windows 10 Redstone, particularly as developers need time to implement them, but there you go. Microsoft has outlined these in a blog post. A lengthy and geeky blog post. - The idea being optimizing the background activity of the applications, as many users do not want to close the applications but keep them running in the background. But for this to happen, every program needs to be optimized, so as to have as small as impact on the system as possible. Luckily, with all the focus on the universal apps for Windows 10, Microsoft has an opportunity to empower developers with solutions to optimize their software. The new operating system now offers developers the ability to have their apps run in the background either as a separate process or directly inside the foreground application. This single process model, though, only arrives with the Anniversary Update, and as Redmond explains, the company is planning even more tweaks to the solution in the coming months:

Samsung Gear IconX earbuds are completely wireless PDF Print E-mail

Friday, 03 June 2016 15:24

I picked up a set of Bluetooth earbuds last year when I realized what a pain it is to use wired earphone while exercising. The model I use sells for about $24 and offers pretty good battery life and decent, but hardly spectacular audio. But Samsung is hoping you’ll spend $200 on its Gear IconX earbuds when they ship later this year. What makes them worth 8 times as much as my earbuds? For one thing, they’re totally wireless: there’s not even a cord running from the left earbud to the right one. For another, the Samsung Gear IconX isn’t just a set of wireless earbuds. It’s also a fitness tracker. The Gear IconX includes sensors for tracking your heart rate, distance, and speed. Pair the earbuds with the S Health app and you can view your stats on your phone or use the IconX voice guide to get verbal support while you work out. Samsung’s earbuds have 4GB of built-in storage which you can use to play music even when your phone isn’t nearby. You can tap or swipe the earbuds to pause, play, switch tracks, or adjust the volume. The earbuds come with a carrying case that also functions as a charger…

The Android-x86 project has been providing a way to install Google’s mobile operating system on desktop and notebook computers for years, and now the team is just about finished with the first build based on Android 6.0. A release candidate for Android-x86 6.0 is now available for download, and it’s designed to run on most computer with 32-bit x86 or 64-bit x86_64 processors.

Google and EU govts’ cross-hiring revealed in new report PDF Print E-mail

Thursday, 09 June 2016 11:44

A new report has raised concerns about Google's influence in European politics, revealing a “revolving door” between the tech giant and politicians. It follows research which proved a similar relationship between Google and Washington.  The study, conducted by the Google Transparency Project (GPT), found at least 80 “revolving door” moves over the past decade, finding instances in which Google hired government employees and European governments hired Google staff. “Google, now part of Alphabet Inc., has hired at least 65 government officials from all over the European Union since 2005,” the GPT wrote on its website. Twenty-six of those officials came from the UK. The initiative listed a couple of Google's recent hires by name, including Tomas Gulbinas, former ambassador-at-large for the Lithuanian government, and Georgios Mavros, an adviser to a French member of the European Parliament. Google hired both officials as lobbyists last year.

Computex 2016: Jide Remix Pro Tablet With Snapdragon 652 CPU and Remix OS 3.0 PDF Print E-mail

Jide Remix is one of the most interesting tablets on the market, particularly thanks to its software, that makes Android more desktop-like. Now there’s a Jide Remix Pro out there and it was spotted and handled at Computex 2016 by the folks of Notebook Italia. The very same device was showcased at CES 2016, but this version has been revamped. We’re dealing with a 2 in 1 unit, that was shown at the Qualcomm booth from Computex. This makes sense, seeing how it integrates the Snapdragon 652 CPU inside. The core concept stays the same as the Jide Remix, a detachable tablet with a dock keyboard and pogo pins, but this time we get a magnesium frame in the mix. Remix Pro measures less than 7 mm in waistline and weighs around 650 grams, being more compact than the predecessor. Jide also included a Remix key on the keyboard, that has the same functionality as a Windows key. The Snapdragon 652 CPU will work in tandem with a 2K resolution 12 inch IPS screen and other specs include 3 GB of RAM, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS, WiFi dual band, MU-MIMO, 4G LTE and an 8 megapixel camera at the back.

Google Promotes Pirate Movie Ratings In Search Snippet PDF Print E-mail
Written by Administrator

Google and Hollywood are not on the best of terms and this isn't going to change anytime soon. While the movie studios are urging Google to increase its anti-piracy efforts, the search engine is now overtly promoting movie ratings of a pirate site. The move is likely a mistake, but it certainly doesn't help to move things along. In recent years Hollywood has taken a rather aggressive approach against Google. The movie studios believe that the search engine isn’t doing enough to limit piracy, and have demanded more stringent measures. One of the suggestions often made is to boost the visibility of legal movie services in search results. For example, show a list of streaming and download portals when users search for a movie. In recent months Google has experimented with exactly this. People who search for classic “pirate” terms may see ads for legal options. In addition, the search engine now shows a snippet with all sorts of movie details when people search for a title. This movie information also includes reviews and ratings from around the web, with links to IMDb, Rotten Tomatoes, Metacritic and other prominent sites. A useful feature for sure, but Hollywood will not like all of the sites that are featured.

How to Show Hidden Files in Windows 10 PDF Print E-mail
Written by Administrator   
Thursday, 02 June 2016 18:49

Microsoft Windows has traditionally granted users wide access to almost all areas of the operating system, but there are some locations that Microsoft would prefer users avoid in order to prevent the inadvertent modification or removal of critical system files. Microsoft manages to keep most users out of these important areas by hiding them from view in File Explorer. The hidden files and folders are still there of course, and the applications which rely on them can still access them, but to the average Windows user, they’ll never be able to open, or even see, these hidden files. But, occasionally, certain troubleshooting efforts require temporary access to these hidden Windows files, and some Windows power users prefer to unhide these files altogether. It’s important to reiterate that Microsoft has hidden these files for a reason: modifying or deleting some of these files may cause irreversible damage to your Windows installation and personal data. But if you understand the risks and need complete access to all of the
