Samsung Flash Complete Walkthrough: Affordable, Portable Windows

Samsung has had plenty of success with their line up of Chromebooks–the cheap and cheerful laptops running Chrome OS that can use a full Chrome browser and Android apps but I wouldn’t quite consider a full-blown desktop OS. While these are great for anyone who just needs to do simple computer tasks, there is definitely a sizeable market for people who would love something in the same price range but that runs proper Windows on it so they can use all the obscure printer apps their job requires, or real office suite and Adobe apps, etc. Well, this is the …

Razer Blade Stealth (2019) Complete Walkthrough: The Most Powerful Ultrabook You Can Buy

Not going to lie, I’m a little excited about this one. If you’re not familiar with Razer, they started out making gaming mice and peripherals and then ventured to laptops, eGPU housings, and even phones. Their best selling product line is probably the Razer Blade line which is there super powerful but still portable line up of gaming laptops (I use the newest Razer Blade 15 for video editing personally). Besides this, they have the Blade Pro, which is sort of their overkill on power, not so portable machine and their Blade Stealth which has been their much less powerful …

Low Power Notification Windows 10

How to Fix the Computer Randomly Dying After Creator Update

Ever since I updated to the new Creator Update on my Windows 10 laptop, I’ll be sitting at a cafe, writing as usual, and then all of a sudden my computer just dies. No warning, just in the middle of a sentence, black screen. After doing a little research it turns out that it’s not an issue with the battery, but it is an issue with something the Creator Update decided to just turn off by default for some dumb reason: the low battery notification. Simply put, when the computer would normally tell me “hey you’ve been here way too …

All You Need for Continuum

What is Continuum? (Video)

One of Windows Phone 10’s really great features that sets it apart from the other mobile operating systems is the new Continuum feature. This feature allows you to plug-in to a monitor or a TV via a separate dock accessory, HDMI, or Miracast dongle (to wirelessly cast it) to get a full-blown version of Windows 10 running from the phone. It’s pretty simple to set up, but unfortunately, it isn’t quite that simple. Nor is it that easy to understand what it can and cannot actually do so I figured I’d put together this video showing what Continuum is and how you can …

Siri first introduced us to the world of technological personal assistants, and all of our collective minds were blown. Hell yeah, I wanna talk to my phone!

Though there are a number of other personal assistant apps that can be used on various platforms, Siri, Google Now, and Cortana are definitely the big three. While there is quite a bit of overlap in the way …
