Screen capturing is an essential feature of any operating system. It helps troubleshooters fix problems remotely, allows us to make neat tutorials and in general, it is just a cleaner way to save interesting snippets right from the monitor to the storage. Most importantly, memes are created that way. We’ll be exploring a few tips in screen capturing – or taking a screenshot, if you will.
Outlook.com just turned a year old and in that time it has completely changed my outlook toward email. It was released as a beta to the general public starting July 31, 2012, where users of Microsoft’s Hotmail service could transfer their accounts to and from Outlook.com. It achieved preview stage on February 18, 2013, and completely replaced Hotmail on April 3, 2013. Outlook.com now has over 400 million users.
It’s been a long time since I’ve done anything in electronics. Well, not really; I’ve only not published them. The past few months, I’ve spent working on my undergrad project. There were mini-projects I took from time to time but this was my first major project that would be under some real scrutiny and I had to concentrate on it. This is essentially why I have been quite offline in terms of publicising my real work, although you would find my non-tech thoughts spread around the inter-webs(if you’re looking really hard, I must add – which is a very sad realisation).

MobileMe, called .Mac and iTools, was once a brilliant collection of subscription based online services offered exclusively to users of Apple’s Mac and recently iOS devices.

Every version of Windows, since Vista, have severely crippled installation of unsigned drivers that haven’t been WHQL verified. I’ve discussed this at length in an earlier post. Unsigned drivers couldn’t be installed, until the administrator account forced it. Windows 8 took it one notch further and made it impossible to install drivers in a usual run. It doesn’t mean you need revert back to an earlier Windows version. Your developer electronic projects can still be cradled on a Windows 8 system.
