    Book a Mac for Christmas

    Life, Graham K. Rogers, Published on 03/12/2014

    » With holiday season approaching, decorations are now turning malls and shopping areas into winter wonderlands, signalling a time of gift-giving. Some of us may want to give to friends and family, but others may use an end-of-year bonus to update their own hardware.

    They've got game

    Life, Sasiwimon Boonruang, Published on 05/08/2015

    » Game Casters are online celebrities who inhabit unique pockets of YouTube — "pockets" may not sound large enough when the most popular of them has 38 million followers. To "cast game", as the activity is known, is for these people to play through a video game (say, Minecraft) accompanied by humorous, irreverent and sometimes swear-ridden commentary, and their whole subjective experiences are recorded and broadcast on YouTube channels for their fans to watch.

    An opaque Windows upgrade

    Life, James Hein, Published on 08/08/2018

    » I have heard a number stories of users having problems with Windows 10 who upgraded from Windows 7 without a clean install. This has happened to people with notebooks, PCs and recently a server. It started a few updates back when rebooting took a long time, which was resolved with a subsequent update. A more recent issue has occurred for those who did not do a clean Windows 10 install, ie they directly upgraded from Windows 7 or 8, having problems ranging from slow to almost unusable speeds and even system lockdowns. If you find yourself having problems, backup your data and do a clean install directly from Windows 10. In short, reformat your system drive and install from scratch. For some this has been the only solution, others have been a little luckier.

    A work around for Microsoft's landmines

    Life, James Hein, Published on 04/07/2018

    » The law in the European Union that I mentioned in the last article was passed as expected and the response from many quarters has been savage. At the time of writing it has yet to be ratified but it has seeded confusion in the online world as to what will be allowed and what won't. It could end up being a subjective nightmare but that is what you get when you are run by a group of essentially faceless bureaucrats in Belgium. I don't think we have heard the end of this one.

    Translating ear buds and builder robots

    Life, James Hein, Published on 09/05/2018

    » Let's face it, technology is cool. Google is claiming that they will have translating ear buds you can use when you travel that will allow you to understand almost any language, instantly. Yes, it does sound like something out of a sci-fi book and I think they should name them Babel fish, but that name was already "stolen" from The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy series in 2012 that later became Bing Translator. The good news is that first versions of these may be ready for tourists in the very near future.

    It's time to update those passwords

    Life, James Hein, Published on 14/03/2018

    » If you've ever wondered if your login details have ever been grabbed by one of the ever increasing hack breaches then I suggest you go to Troy Hunt's "Have I Been Pawned" website at haveibeenpwned.com. You could troll through the Dark Web and look at the actual data, but this is a lot easier and safer. Once there, search for your usernames and email addresses. Yes, more than one of mine had been hacked. If you use the same username, email address and password combinations for every site you sign up on then this becomes very important. Imagine there is some site that has been hacked for which you use the same combination you do on your banking site. Now the hacker has your banking login. I keep similar combinations for those sites I don't care about if they go in as me, but stricter and individual passwords for places like banks and PayPal. If the blood just drained out of your face as you think about this, then it may be time to update a few passwords and logins.

    AR we there yet?

    Life, Sasiwimon Boonruang, Published on 26/07/2017

    » Years ago, a 3D pop-up book was the definition of literary excitement, when a T-Rex could spring from it flashing sharp teeth and powerful jaws. But that's the technology of yesteryear. Today readers cannot only see but hear and touch the world's most beloved extinct animals, thanks to the augmented reality (AR) technology.
