Google Chrome AdBlocker?

06/06/2017 Main

Hello everyone, and welcome back to this, my computers and electronics blog. We all hate ads. They make noise when we don’t want them to, they take up valuable bandwidth and worst of all they let the people watching our screens know about the nasty stuff we search for. That is why internet big boy Google will be releasing an update to Google Chrome next year that will automatically block ads. They have said that this new ad blocker will even be able to block advertisements that play audio as soon as they open, or ones that stop you from viewing a web page. This might seems strange, as Google generates most of their income off of advertisements on their searches and other pages. As a member of the Coalition for Better Ads (CBA) however, Google has just published some new guidelines on trying to convince advertisers to stop using overly annoying ads.  Read more

Choose the Right Hard Drive

Choose the Right Hard Drive

Hey everyone, welcome back to my computers and electronics blog. The other week there was a huge power surge at my house that fried all of my external hard drives and now I have to replace them all. Replacing them isn’t that big of an issue, I already found lots of really good and cheap hard drives on, my favourite classified ads website. It also means that I get to start fresh with my hard drives. I can buy some really big ones, some smaller solid states or whatever I want. Maybe I will have a solid state drive to put all of the games I bought from my best games of 2016 post. I will have to put some thought into it and buy the hard drives that best suit my needs. To help anyone else who has to go through this, I have compiled a couple tips for how to choose the right hard drive for you. Read more

Blizzard Ending Windows XP and Vista Support

Blizzard Ending Windows XP and Vista Support

Hello and welcome fellow computer enthusiasts. Thank you for coming back for yet another piece on my computers and consumer electronics blog. Today’s topic is a recent announcement from PC game kingpin Blizzard, and that they will discontinue support for older Windows systems Vista and XP for all their games. Microsoft killed Windows XP for good three years ago (rest in peace sweet prince) other companies are slowly joining in, ending the vigil for a once great operating system. Blizzard announced that later this year the company will discontinue support for games Diablo III, Starcraft II, World of Warcraft, Hearthstone, and Heroes of the Storm. Read more

Reasons Why Internet Marketing Is More Important Than Before

25/11/2016 Main

If you’re going to build any type of web presence, you have to focus on internet marketing. There is no way that you can get any sort of attention online if you do not utilize the elements found within this structure. Sure, there are some people that set up websites and get a deluge of traffic no matter what, but those are usually celebrity offerings or business entities that have a built in audience. If you are starting from scratch, and you want to compete with others online, you will need to understand why you need this type of marketing more than ever before. Read more

2016 Games

Whats up everybody and how you doing? I am back with another post for my computers and electronics blog, this time about new games from 2016 that I have not gotten a chance to play. I don't get to play new games very often as I am cheap as hell, but I recently started buying Steam keys online at which has tons of used steam keys for bundles and independent games. So I will be looking them religiously for the next few weeks until the winter sale starts up and I can start to get all these cool new games.  Read more

Building a Website (Part One) 

Welcome back folks.  Following on from the 5G discussion, today I wanted to share with you a little bit about an ever-evolving computer-based hobby of mine.  Hopefully it’ll give you some pointers or at least a useful insight on how to build your own website.  I’ll be discussing content management systems, in particular a globally recognized one by the name of Wordpress, right through to site building and the wonderful phenomena that is the vast array of templates and plugins that are available.

Coffee Machines

28/05/2016 Main

Hi folks! Sorry it has been a while. I’ve been away for a few weeks on holiday to Italy. I love everything Italian; the food, the wine, the fashion, the language, the architecture, the history, the climate and especially the coffee! Hmmmmmm, coffee! I love it in all it’s forms but nothing beats a pot of freshly ground beans brewed up in your own home and enjoyed on the sofa! Freeze dried granules are ok if you are in a hurry, as is a Costas or Starbucks if you’re out and about. But if you truly want to enjoy a cup of coffee as it was intended to be served, then you should really be making your own. And of course, to do this you will need your own coffee machine! Read more

Pokemon Go – What On Earth?

15/05/2016 Main

So what on Earth is all this who-ha! about with Pokemon Go? It seems like everyone is going mad for it but I don’t really get what all the fuss is about. Maybe I’m just a bit too old to appreciate it but it just seems like a load of rubbish to me. I saw some guys playing it in the bar the other day & the Pokemon appeared on one of the bar stools so they were trying to fire at it. I wondered what the hell they were doing until the person next to me pointed out that they were playing Pokemon Go. That’s basically when I actually decided to read up on it a bit to find out what exactly you have to do with this game. I’ve got to say, it seems a little dangerous to me, people just wondering around the streets trying to find Pokemon. They could end up down a dark alley, end up walking into the middle of the road, that sort of thing. They seem so caught up in their own little Pokemon world that they forget where they are. Of course, my little nieces & nephews love it but I do worry about them getting too tangled up with the game & gettingthemselves into mischief. My fears appear well-founded as the net is covered with stories of people having accidents as a result of the game. Read more

Too much technology?

14/03/2016 Main

Hello tech friends! So, I’m sure it’s pretty clear that I love technology - I mean I created a blog dedicated to the topic after all but I got to thinking today about all of the technology I have consumed over the years and all of the technology I consume on a daily basis. Consequently, todays blog post is a little left wing of me but I’m having one of those days where I sit and reflect on life and  I thought I would record my observations on here - sometimes it is good to look at things from a different perspective after all, something that technology undoubtedly allows us to do!

IPhone: In or out?

23/02/2016 Main

So I’m at the predicament again where I need to buy a new smartphone. My friend recently purchased a brand spanking new IPhone 6 Plus – he was one of those guys who actually lined up outside the Apple store for it. Admittedly, I think Apple have greatly improved the look and feel of their product, as well as providing their usual smooth and quick interaction. I will admit, I definitely kind of like it.

Customised Android Apps

28/01/2016 Main

Hi folks. I wanted to touch on Android apps today and why paying for your own bespoke app can be a great idea in today’s modern, fast-moving business environment. Many businesses have raised concerns over recent years that one-package-fits-all style software packages are less and less the solution they need for their respective businesses. They need and want specific solutions for their very unique business requirements. That is where a bespoke business app can be of great use in capturing a huge android based market and they do not cost a fortune to get developed. Let’s discuss specifics as to why you should hire somebody to build you an app. Read more

Finding a Small Sofa

26/01/2016 Main

Thought I'd deviate slightly from Technology for this article. I currently live at home with my Uncle and my two Aunts so my bedroom is my little escape. Initially I was just using the room as a bit of a dumping ground for all my stuff and was having to clamber over everything just to get to my bed. I then found myself needing a little more of my own space so I decided to clean the room up, move some stuff around and make it a little more spacious so I can retreat there and not feel all cramped-up and claustrophobic. I’ve kept furniture to a minimal so just have a small clothes rail for some of my clothes that need hanging and a small chest of draws for my undies and some of the other clothes that are ok folded-up. Besides my double bed, there’s really only a small bedside table and a small computer desk. Unfortunately, that leaves absolutely no room for anything else. I’ve already put my flat-screen TV on a wall bracket along with my cable box and DVD player. I wanted to keep the computer desk ideally but as I now use my laptop and tablet rather than the desktop, I’m thinking of ditching it and freeing-up the space. Read more

Virtual Reality

05/01/2016 Main

This year seems to be the year that VR is really going to take-off. I’ve watched a lot of old sci-fi movies where they’ve dreamt-up VR contraptions, obviously they didn’t look like the kind of things we’re starting to see now but the idea has been there for a long-time. I definitely think that its took a lot longer to become a reality, excuse the pun, than a few people would have thought. Anyway, who cares, now it looks like there’s really been some evolution in the technology and we’re starting to hear more and more about VR related kit. Read more
