Well, it’s that time again. I got something to blargh about. Keeping it short and to the point: I recently bought a shiny new Archos Cesium 80 tablet with Windows 8.1. All very nice, being able to run w32 apps without any problem. But there’s one bottleneck: it only has 16GB of available disk space.… Continue reading ARCHOS Cesium 80 — support?!
Ahh, yes. I’ve been reading the news, and somehow it got me to a group called ‘Resist Surveillance’. The group is organized by a few human rights groups, as shown as on their site. The purpose of the software? Detect government spyware by running it and viewing the results (obviously). This isn’t really anything new,… Continue reading Guide for governments: Resisting Detekt
I’ve installed Windows 8.1 on my main laptop, and it’s even faster (performance) than Windows 8. Some games (and websites) do not seem to agree though, but I haven’t really installed any games which will drain a lot of performance; let alone to test it. So I’ll just assume that games don’t really work (though,… Continue reading Windows 8.1: More choice and less clutter.
A few months back, I got a scanner from my uncle. It’s an ‘old’ HP scanjet 4470c. I’m using the 64 bits version of Windows 8; and there are no drivers for my little scanner. So I came up with an idea. I used my VirtualBox Windows XP (x86) installation, and installed the drivers on… Continue reading My scanner is boxed!
Most people don’t know what an internet browser is. Heck, most people use Internet Explorer or Safari for that matter. But it’s all thanks to Google people change their minds. Commercials. Everywhere. This isn’t too bad, but it’s bad for the ‘free browser market’. Other browsers (Firefox, Opera) do not have the budget to advertise… Continue reading The horrors of the World Wide Web
I decided to create an icon pack. Didn’t really post anything in the last weeks, my apologies. Also, there is going to be a new download section for everything you might need. Download: Serious Overheat icon pack(format range: 16×16 – 256×256 pixels) The pack contains 8 icons, with different styles and desktops. License: Free for… Continue reading Download: Serious Overheat Icon pack
I received my Pi a day ago, and without a case. I thought it was better to make my own case. When I received my package, it included the following things: 2 pieces of paper, one for the precautions, and the other one was a quick-start guide The Raspberry Pi board A protective case, with… Continue reading Raspberry Pi: The included case -mod
People always ask me: “Do you have Facebook on your phone?”, and I always reply “No, sorry.” The next thing someone says is 9 out of 10 times: “Do you have WhatsApp then?”. Same reply, why not Skype, Messenger or SMS? The thing is, I have Skype and Messenger (it’s integrated in Skype now), why… Continue reading WhatsApp? I know.
Last time, I covered a review on Ubuntu One. Ubuntu One is great for cloud storage and backups, but their newly introduced music store is not just good, it’s actually bad. The prices vary per track from 0.50$-2$, and the bitrate is the highest you can get. Tracks will be send to ‘.ubuntuone\Purchased from Ubuntu… Continue reading Ubuntu One Music Store: Better be using a real CD retailer.
Ubuntu One, a cloud service by Canonical which servers you 5GB free ‘cloud’ storage. This isn’t very new, but Ubuntu One can be used on almost any OS, such as Mac OS, Linux/Ubuntu, Windows, Android and i-Devices (iPod, iPhone etc.). Very straightforward, and the server speeds are pretty high, and it’s a useful way to… Continue reading Ubuntu1 – Useful for multiboot – Less for Windows
