Apparently, it’s a device you can plug into your home router and it’ll magically protect all the devices connected to the network from viruses, malware, and any other type of nasty electronic attack. Sounds like a neat concept frankly and thankfully the BOX itself looks pretty cool too so I figured I’d check it out and see how well it did. What is the Bitdefender BOX? The Bitdefender BOX plugs in via ethernet to your router or modem you currently have or can act as a router itself. …

Apple Plus NVIDIA

How to Use NVIDIA Cards with your Mac eGPU (Easiest Method)

With High Sierra, Apple has finally given native eGPU support to Macs and MacBooks. If you’re not familiar, eGPU is short for an external GPU (graphics processing unit) and refers to the ability for a computer (usually a laptop) to be able to use a GPU or graphics card in an external housing as if it was built into the computer. This means, with a supported eGPU housing and a GPU plugged in, you can get desktop-like graphics processing from your less powerful laptop. This is a feature that’s been built into Windows 10 for a bit now, but Macs …

YouTube Take a Break Message Popup

How to Use YouTube’s New Take a Break Feature

Not that I could see anyone I know using it, but YouTube launched a new “take a break” feature that allows you to set limits in the YouTube app for how long you can view before the app nudges you to take a break. The idea comes from Google I/O and their focus for Android to start helping people who might spend too much time looking at their phone. Now, it might sound counter-intuitive for Google, creator of Android who makes revenue off of you using your phone, to give you ways to use it less, but there’s an amount of moral …

Huawei P20 Look Like Stock Android - Copy

How to Make the Huawei P20 Look Like Stock Android

There is no doubt, that the Huawei P20 and the Huawei P20 Pro have some of the best hardware out there. EMUI on the other hand, well, isn’t the most sought-after software on a mobile device. It runs well, keeps the phone faster longer and is great with the battery life frankly, but the look? The look seems a bit cartoony for more western tastes at least. While Huawei has definitely toned down EMUI with the latest versions, a lot of you have been asking me for how to make the Huawei P20 look like stock Android instead. Now, by …
