Android_TV_Google_TV.jpg

The Verge reported over the weekend that Google is getting ready to release Android TV; a replacement to Google TV. The interesting thing about this move for Google is that it’s not really a move at all, they just embracing what’s already out there in the market and focusing on the high points of streaming …

567

This article is actually based on my experience last week dealing with the horrors of just flaky software from Microsoft- Windows Essentials 2012. I spent countless hours researching, testing, rebooting, changing security settings and then ultimately reinstalling my operating system. It was very depressing too.

I have been throwing around the idea of buying a low-end android tablet to play with as a toy. To go so far as to think that I might take a cheap android tablet, strap some sticky magnets to the back of it and mount it to my refrigerator. The idea of having a android …

Windows 7 Recovery Sucks

Windows_recovery_screen.jpg

A few weeks ago, I was reminded of how fragile Windows operating system really is. My machine crashed, and I wasn’t able to log into the operating system.

Back in July 2011, I found a great application for doing screenshots; it’s called Greenshot. It’s a free application from SourceForge. It’s a screenshot application that continues to be developed and actively evolve adding new features each time, My Windows PC recently crashed, with a hard drive failure, and I found myself in a precarious …

Microsoft_Surface_corporate.jpg

Hey corporate workers! It seems like every blog out there has an opinion [even mine] about the success and failure of Microsoft Surface, but I don’t think anyone is really covering the fact that Microsoft Surface is going to allow employers to get some free work time.

Windows_irrelevant.jpg

Back in May of 2011, I wrote a post about Windows 8 and that people shouldn’t buy it. The discussions over Windows 8 are highly mixed and there’s a group of people that love Windows 8 there’s a group of people that absolutely despise Windows 8. That demographic of people can be separated into those …
