How to get Windows Phone 8.1 today
[b]How to get Windows Phone 8.1 today[/b] by Gregg Keizer Microsoft sets very low developer preview bar; anyone can grab the bits. Computerworld - Microsoft released Windows Phone 8.1 today, and contrary to its label of "Windows Phone Preview for Developers," anyone can upgrade their current Windows Phone 8-powered handset. Registered Windows Phone developers who have previously opted into previews -- Microsoft launched the early-look program last October -- can immediately download the preview onto their smartphones. But Microsoft has set a very low bar for entry to its developers program, making it easy for anyone to obtain the pre-release operating system.

Samsung Galaxy S4 vs. iPhone 5, HTC One, and BlackBerry Z10
It's been nearly 10 months since the highly successful [url=http://reviews.cnet.com/samsung-galaxy-s3-review/]Samsung Galaxy S3[/url] was first released in the U.S., and in a [url=http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-19736_7-57581154-251/sprint-t-mobile-feel-samsung-galaxy-s4-delay-woes/]few more days[/url], the [url=http://reviews.cnet.com/samsung-galaxy-s4/]Galaxy S4[/url]will be sold online and in several retail stores across the U.S. With a 5-inch HD screen, a 13-megapixel camera, and either a quad- or octa-core processor (the U.S. will get the former), the GS4 is dressed to the nines with hardware goods. So how does it stack up against its current competition? Read [url=http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-6452_7-57574225/samsung-galaxy-s4-vs-iphone-5-htc-one-and-blackberry-z10/]here[/url].

Chrome caching to smooth out rough patches in network
Google is working on software that will improve Chrome during moments when people lose their network connection by letting the browser load its own stored copy of previously visited Web pages. Google programmer Randy Smith said yesterday he's [url=https://groups.google.com/a/chromium.org/forum/?fromgroups=#%21topic/chromium-dev/mPMmsBZoCVI]added support for "offline cache mode" to Chrome[/url]. It's only on the developer version of the browser so far, and it's disabled by default, but the flag to enable it says the feature will let Chrome load Web pages from the browser's local cache if the online version isn't available. That could help when reloading pages or restarting the browser with no network.

Yahoo reportedly eyeing two more acquisitions
Yahoo may be looking to continue its spending spree with the acquisitions of a couple of app makers. Yahoo has [url=http://allthingsd.com/20130617/yahoo-offer-to-buy-contact-startup-xobni-is-at-a-price-of-30m-to-40m/]reportedly offered to pay $30 million to $40 million to buy Xobni[/url], AllThingsD reported Monday, citing "numerous sources" close to the company. [url=https://www.xobni.com/]Xobni[/url], which is "inbox" spelled backwards, offers desktop and mobile apps that can automatically create an address book based on your e-mails. As such, Yahoo may be eyeing the Xobni as a natural fit for its own online mail service. And there's a common thread between the two companies, AllThingsD noted. Xobni's CEO Jeff Bonforte was previously the vice president of social search and real-time communications at Yahoo.

Take creative photos with the HTC One
One of my favorite features on the HTC One is its camera. Beyond the picture quality, which is great, HTC really went the extra mile to pack in a bunch of cool software extras. Two of these extras that really caught my eye are called Sequence Shot and Zoe, and you can see them in action in the [url=http://cnettv.cnet.com/take-creative-photos-htc-one/9742-1_53-50145563.html]above video[/url]. Using the Sequence Shot feature allows you to composite multiple images into one picture. The trick to this one is to hold still and fire off a bunch of snapshots by holding down the camera button. This will create a self-contained batch of images which you edit with the Retouch option, selecting Sequence from the submenu. After the HTC One does a little processing, it will give you a composite of what it thinks are the best photos to make up your sequence. By tapping the photos on the bottom, you can take them in or out of the sequence. When you have it the way you want, tap the Done button, then

Yahoo Mail recent top ad banner
Recently, Yahoo mail added another ad banner. in addition to the ad panel for non-paid subscribers. You can pay for their premium and get rid of the ads (now 49.99, up from 19.99 per year). There is the ability to expand your inbox per session and not see the side panel, and you can also use various extensions to block the panel all the time for you. Along comes the new banner which floats on top thel inbox. It is extremely annoying. The good news is there is an extension that will get rid of it and the side panel.

I added it to my Firefox browser and it is working very well For Chrome, there is Hide Inline Yahoo Mail ADS 1.0.3 by Alpha Charlie, released July 7,2014,.I gave it a try and it does work well, however there are few users and not yet rated.

MIDI turns 30: a revolutionary open music standard lives on
Who ever thought that it would still be relevant in today's world? The list of digital technologies that have remained in use for a decade or more is a short one. MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface), the universal standard for communication between electronic instruments — which debuted at NAMM in 1983 — has gone unchanged for 30 years. Introduced to the public the same year Microsoft released Windows 1.0, MIDI belongs to a Paleolithic era of computer interface design. Nevertheless, it’s still used in every major recording studio, by almost every electronic musician working today, and aspects of its design have directly influenced the evolution of several musical genres.

Update: Windows 8's early uptake lags behind Vista's
Final online usage numbers for 2012 released Tuesday confirmed that Windows 8 failed to match Windows Vista’s uptake pace during its first two months. Preliminary numbers from Net Applications last week indicated that Windows 8 would [url=http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9235059/Windows_8_s_uptake_falls_behind_Vista_s_pace]end the month behind Vista’s uptake[/url] at the same point in its release cycle. Tuesday’s data confirmed the earlier projections by [i]Computerworld[/i]. According to the U.S.-based analytics firm, Windows 8’s December global usage share was 1.9 percent of all Windows PCs, slightly lower than the 2.2 percent Vista posted in early 2007 after two full months of availability.

New Surface Tablet Looks Promising
Hey All, Happy Friday! While this is not exactly "breaking news" (June 18 is considered old news by now), I'm sure you all have seen (or at least heard) of Microsoft's brand new toy, the "Surface" tablet. With the Windows 8 release looming, Microsoft decided to build the tablet themselves. While not known for their hardware prowess, I must say, from a completely neutral technology-appreciating perspective, this thing looks pretty cool. How about you?? Let me know what you think! One (of the many) articles can be found [url=http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2012-06-18/microsofts-surface-tablets-raise-the-bar-for-pc-rivals]here[/url]. Cheers and have a great weekend!
Intel confirms 'Haswell' chip intro at Computex
It's official. Intel's fourth-generation core "Haswell" processor will arrive on June 3. Expect a crush of desktops, laptops, convertibles, detachables, and [url=http://reviews.cnet.com/tablets/]tablets[/url] to ensue. "In approximately 3,337,200,000,000,000 nanoseconds, Intel will reveal all there is to know about the highly anticipated 4th generation Intel Core processor family," Intel said in a statement Friday. That's June 3 in the U.S. and June 4 in Taiwan, where it will be rolled out at [url=http://www.computextaipei.com.tw/]Computex[/url]. Haswell is mostly about better battery life and, to a lesser extent, about improved graphics performance. So, expect, for instance, Haswell laptops that last longer -- maybe a lot longer if other power-saving technologies are also used -- than today's latest and greatest offerings.

Ask Anything: What Happens In Your Computer When You Turn It On?
[b]No, the little mouse inside it does not start scrambling around. [/b] By [url=http://www.popsci.com/category/popsci-authors/daniel-engber]Daniel Engber[/url] [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/11204i18C6B58A24D7A60D.jpg[/img] Before a computer can load its operating system and locate drivers for its components, it must recognize that it has been turned on at all. This task falls to a relatively simple device known as the power-on reset circuit. “In its very basic form, it’s simply a little capacitor and a resistor and a little inverter, something like that,” says David Blaauw, a professor in the Michigan Integrated Circuits Laboratory at the University of Michigan. The power-on reset circuit is hardwired to recognize a minimum voltage level. When voltage crosses that threshold, the circuit signals the processor to execute a set of commands that allow for the loading up of the system. [url=http://www.po
Facebook makes a play for more mobile ads with instant setup
Facebook said Wednesday that it has sped up the process for creating [url=https://developers.facebook.com/docs/tutorials/mobile-app-ads/]mobile app install ads[/url], the unit developers can buy to promote their own iOS and Android applications. App makers can now create and run mobile app install ads by simply entering a link to their apps in Apple's App Store or Google Play -- rather than first registering their apps with Facebook, a company spokesperson told CNET. Developers then need only set their target audience and budget to get the ad unit in the wild. Essentially, with the change, all it takes to advertise your app is a little copy-and-paste know-how. The simplified process, though relatively minor news, could actually make a significant impact on Facebook's bottom line. By removing friction from the creation process, Facebook should be able to entice more developers to purchase social network distribution for their iOS and [url=http://www.cnet.com/android-atlas/
