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!
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
Ubuntu One, or just Ubuntu1, is a cloud storage with 5GB of storage. Sounds familiar? Yes, that was my first thought too. And 5GB isn’t very much nowadays. It seems that you get 20GB extra for 3$/month, which isn’t expensive. A small quote from the homepage: Sync & 5GB storage free Keep your content safe,… Continue reading Ubuntu One – Just another cloud?
It seems that ever since Windows Vista that VHD booting is supported natively, but in Windows 8, it seems when an item named in the BCD storage starting with [VHD] (including the square brackets), the icon is different as well: inside the “window” icon, the letters VHD are inside. That concludes that Microsoft wants… Continue reading [Windows 8] Build-in VHD boot support?
