    Microsoft Paint might be fading

    Life, James Hein, Published on 02/08/2017

    » What is the one program you can count on to be in Windows, apart from say Minesweeper? Microsoft Paint. It's the poor man's drawing tool and screen capture tool where it is as simple as Alt-Printscreen, Start-Run MSPaint, CTRL-V, Crop Marquee Select Crop, CTRL-A CTRL-C, Switch to email and CTRL–V to get something from your screen into an email (or anything else).

    Even writers need to think before tweeting

    Life, James Hein, Published on 16/08/2017

    » Without the internet, there would only ever be part of a story. Consider the recent example of Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling. She watched an edited video and then took to the internet using her fame to decry the treatment of a small child by a prominent leader. Her concerns were quickly and widely spread but the unedited footage showed the opposite. Even the mother of the child finally got involved and asked the internet to please tell J.K. Rowling that she was wrong. At the time of writing Rowling had apologised to the mother but not the leader she smeared. In the current fast pace and instant Twitter-response world it is important to take a step back and do some personal investigation before reacting, often incorrectly, to a flash tweet or news story. If you see a clip try and find the full or unedited version, that extra time can save you from future embarrassment, though some personalities seem to be immune to it.

    Size counts in the world of IT

    Life, James Hein, Published on 04/05/2016

    » When it comes to implementing systems, it is all about scale. If you have ever been a system tester you will know that what works one at a time may not work well if a whole bunch of them are processed all at once. Those who have ever used an old fashioned typewriter will understand this. Volume testing and scalability of system is one of the biggest problems a development testing team faces.

    Entering the darkness

    Life, James Hein, Published on 03/06/2015

    » You may have heard of the terms "Dark Web" or "Deep Web", then again you may not have. First of all these two terms refer to different things. The first is a series of websites that provide illegal services, such as ordering drugs, and a range of other things typically purchased using Bitcoins. The second refers to all the unindexed sites that exist across the World Wide Web. According to some reports, Google indexes about 16% of the internet, leaving the majority of sites not findable through most search engines.

    The internet grows darker

    Life, James Hein, Published on 08/05/2019

    » Social media has reached danger levels of influence and like anything powerful it can be used for positive or negative purposes. In countries like China you can say as many good things about the government on social media as you like but anything negative typically triggers a rapid response. The US and UK has its own sets of problems, with a tug-of-war between liberals and conservatives over the truth, with each side seeking to banish the other from social media. Self-defined open, inclusive and balanced social media platforms like Twitter are removing accounts on one side of politics in countries before elections, effectively meddling in elections.

    Next-gen Wi-Fi technologies on the way

    Life, James Hein, Published on 07/11/2018

    » The fixed line versus Wi-Fi debate continues to be a popular one. And with technologies like Wi-Gig and Wi-Fi 6 in the pipeline, the debate will only intensify. Current Wi-Fi technologies work inside the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands; they also have user-friendly version numbers now. Wi-Fi 4 came out in 2009 under the name 802.11n, Wi-Fi 5 arrived in 2014 as 802.11ac and Wi-Fi 6 is due in 2019 as 802.11.ax. In the near future, you'll see these numbers start to appear on your devices, but not every manufacturer will bother to use the new designations. Wi-Fi numbers 1-3 represent even older, now mostly unused versions.

    For those perfect Netflix and chill moments

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 03/05/2017

    » Sporting a rather hefty combination of an Intel-Core i7 processor and 8GB of RAM (upgradeable to 16GB), the Lenovo Yoga 910 is no doubt one of the more powerful ultra-thin hybrid laptops currently on the market. It also sports a pretty decent battery, offering almost 10 hours of use per full-charge, something that greatly enhances its purpose as a portable (1.3kg) working laptop.

    Original intent drives Jabra's new fitness earbud

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 12/04/2017

    » Entirely sweat and waterproof, the Elite Sport is, as its name suggests, a great choice of headphones for working out. Providing decent sound quality with a snug, customisable rubber frame that commendably keeps the earphones where they should be, while keeping ambient noises out, the device is also greatly versatile, able to act as a decent hands-free headset for calls as well as a fitness tracker with HRM (heart rate monitor) capabilities. What the device can't do, however, is act as an on-the-go headphone for your daily needs, with a measly three-hours of battery life per charge. The provided charging case that comes with the headphones does provide a further two charges to your use -- for another six hours of use -- though it probably won't be practical.
