Permalink To Petzi Treat Cam Review: Monitor and Feed Your Pets Remotely

One of the big trends at CES 2015 was gadgets and mobile accessories for your pets. I saw everything from pet trackers that count their steps for the day, accessories that let you know where your pets are without microchipping them, and even pet cameras. Pet cameras are becoming a popular way to check-in on your four-legged friends when you’re away from home.

I had the opportunity to test out the Petzi Treat Cam, a recently released pet camera that allows you to connect with your pets on the go. Let’s look at the Petzi Treat Cam and whether or not it’s worth the investment.

Permalink To Phone Not Charging Properly? Here are 7 Tips That Might Help Resolve This Issue

A phone that is not charging properly or worse not charging at all can be a real pain. While most of us run to the service centers at the first sight of the problem, the solution could actually be a lot simpler than you think.

The issue could be that the phone is charging very slowly or it might not be charging at all. A phone charging issue does not automatically mean that your battery is a dud or that the charger has conked off on you. While these might turn out to be the causes, chances are there is nothing wrong with your hardware that a little bit of tweaking cannot set right.

Let’s look at some tips that can get your phone battery up and running, without any expert intervention. These might seem simple, but they definitely are effective.

If you believe everything on the Internet, you know that Microsoft, like Google and Apple, is an evil conglomerate that only wants to track you everywhere you go and control every aspect of how you use a computer. Some of this is true, some of it’s not, and the rest is up to you to decide what to do with.

Recently, Microsoft has come under fire for updates to its End User License Agreement (EULA) since the release of Windows 10. Users in Europe noticed it first, and it’s caused alarm among users across the globe.

We look at the issue and whether or not you need to be worried about using Windows 10.

What are Windows 10 Insider Builds and How to Opt Into The Program

Permalink To What are Windows 10 Insider Builds and How to Opt Into The Program

Windows 10 Home users will find that updates are automatically installed with very little details of what’s being fixed, tweaked and changed. You agreed to this when you upgraded to Windows 10, so you’re stuck with those updates.

However, if you’re even more adventurous, you can still opt into the Windows Insider program and get builds not pushed out to the general public until they’re finished.

Of course, opting into Windows 10 Insider builds is risky, but it can be rewarding in fixing bugs and issues, along with introducing you with new features before anybody else using the OS. Let’s look at how to opt into the Windows 10 Insider builds after upgrading to Microsoft’s latest release.

4 Things To Know About the Command Line Before You Start Using Linux

Permalink To 4 Things To Know About the Command Line Before You Start Using Linux

If you get started on Linux (like I, a Mac user, did after getting curious), getting used to the platforms quirks can be challenging. Linux doesn’t work like other platforms. It requires rethinking how a computer “should” work and understanding a whole different paradigm with its own strengths and weaknesses.

One of the biggest changes is the command line. Windows has Command Prompt (which any good sysadmin will spend a good bit of time in) and Mac has Terminal, but both prefer to keep command line stuff as a last resort. Mac and Windows (and some Linux brands, such as Ubuntu) would first present a GUI for managing programs and updating your OS.

Linux, however, runs mostly on the command line. Doing all the cool (and useful) things in the operating system requires understanding how some funny-sounding commands can operate your system. However, the command line can be intimidating. To help you understand it and work in it better, here are some things you should know before starting on Linux.

However, there are some features in this system that can be particularly annoying. While these are by no means deal breakers we would definitely want to see less of them to enjoy our phones a lot better.

Let us see some such maddening Android features that we can do very well without. The good news here is that if you do not like something then there is really no need to put up with it.

In typical Android style, the reins are completely in the user’s hands and switching these features off should take no more than a few minutes.

OnePlus made quite an entrance into the smartphone market in 2014. The manufacturer has sold nearly 1.5 million phones till date which might not be a record breaker but is definitely a head start for a new entrant.

OnePlus 2, like its predecessor, is a budget phone that promises the experience of a premium flagship smartphone. This is the reason that the phone is being touted as ‘2016 flagship killer’, quite a tall claim but if the device delivers then it might just come true.

The phone is pretty sturdy with an elegant appearance and easy to use interface. The handset is priced at less than half of what Apple and Samsung are charging their customers which could be the governing factor for its success.

If you’re a Mac user who loves travelling, clicking a lot pictures and shooting videos then you have most likely spent precious time finding the amazing sunset pictures at the Copacabana beach or your last vacation in Mexico.

Do you store your self-shot photos and videos on your Mac? If you do, your pictures and videos probably have generic, camera-generated names that you can’t make sense of. It becomes hard to find exactly the group of photos or videos you’re looking for, like the shots you took at the picnic or those videos you took at a party.

In such cases, you should think about renaming your files. Once you do that, you’ll be able to find what you’re looking for much faster, not to mention that it looks much more organized that way.
