Are the days of Windows gone?

Windows used to be a great operating system. Even with the major flaws present during the era of Vista it managed to fix mostly all issues surrounding user complaint. Yet is Windows slowly being pushed from behind into almost certain doom?
Stocks are falling, people are losing faith and Windows 8 is such a hybrid, never truly working on a tablet as it should have because of the super-small buttons, but less desktop friendly than they could have ever imagined. In many ways Windows has failed to find a user base, evident through the failing Windows phone line.

Apple Maps was always destined to fail… no amount of updating can fix that – face the facts Apple.

4 Reasons Not to Install Predator

Predator is a chunk of software designed exclusively for Windows – and perhaps those who want the novelty of acting like Agent 007. But, in all honesty, that is this software will ever be – a novelty. And, correct me if I’m wrong, a novelty is simply something that seems great at first, but slowly wears off to become something of a nuisance the more you use it.

Predator

Now your probably wondering what Predator does, or why it is a novelty. Well… remember how in all of your crime show movies the protagonist has a USB drive or some other key that they simply plug in their computer to unlock it… well that’s what Predator is. It stores a small file (or key, as it likes to call it) onto your USB, and when that file is not longer located on that USB then it locks your computer. Sounds cool, doesn’t it? It also disables the keyboard, mouse and other hardware for a period of time when the USB is removed. And to top this all off, if you somehow lose your USB drive, then you can manually access the computer by typing in a password by enabling the keyboard by pressing the spacebar numerous times. Oh, did I forget to say that it logs all entries and play an alarm if the password is incorrectly put in?

Still sound cool? Well…

VM-Ware

Have you ever had the feeling where you wish you had another computer, perhaps just to test things on or install viruses for the fun of it? I sure know as hell that it would be useful to have. Perhaps you might have wanted to download Windows 8.1 Consumer Preview, you were so close to hitting that download button until you read the fine print, something along the lines of having to reinstall windows at a later date?

We’ve Changed!!!

As you can probably tell by reading this post, the site theme has changed. I hope it looks a lot better as I do. Sorry for any inconveniences, but personally, it looks that much better 🙂

Setting up a Windows Homegroup

Many windows users with multiple computers would like to use a home network, although many ultimately believe that home networks are in fact highly demanding and costly.

Common misconceptions about home networks are:

-networks take a lot of time to setup and are therefore not worth the hassle
-additional, costly, hardware is required for the network to run smoothly
-they require a lot of programming knowledge in order to use
-one must change a lot of settings in order to use it

A Definition of Smart

“It’s an elusive concept. There’s a certain sharpness, an ability to absorb new facts. To walk into a situation, have something explained to you and immediately say, “Well, what about this?” To ask an insightful question. To absorb it in real time. A capacity to remember. To relate to domains that may not seem connected at first. A certain creativity that allows people to be effective.”

Bill Gates

Revising

After much procrastination I don’t believe that my particular audience is particularly interested in tutorials on how to do things on the latest technology. Fr that I believe Google will suffice, and my results will surely not follow in the top ten, something that most people do not look beyond.

However quality content is the key, and I will be recounting various difficulties that I face when using computers, and giving word of mind of how I overcame them. So instead of a mindless blog with no passion behind it, I believe I would rather not have the full content as I would of rather hoped, but rather a true blog about technology.

For those listening in, please don’t think that I am giving up on giving everything tech related. I am simply going to try a different approach in order to gain attention and momentum.

Now that I have said my mind, I believe that I would rather stop now, instead of boring you to death, and with no chance of my fellow readers following me or giving me feedback on how boring I am.

As always, please feel free to browse my blog, nothing I right is confidential, it is published to the web and so it should stay that way.

I hope you return in order to see how the website is going, and hope you all the best for your own blogging 🙂
