This is not a Microsoft problem. For more than 2 months now I have bought and returned several external CD burners from Amazon. None of them work properly. Amazon has taken them back and replaced each with another one. I have talked to around 12 people/techs during this time. One person suggested downloading VideoLAN which has created a huge problem. When I discovered this was a mistake, I uninstalled this from my control panel. No good. Every day now I turn on my computer, Slimware Driver Updates appear on two screens. I can’t get rid of them. How do I do this? Any suggestions are welcome. Thank you and be safe out there. All the best, Wayne
By [b]John Callaham[/b] A new research paper details the efforts of a team at Stanford University who are looking to create a [url=http://www.wpcentral.com/tag/battery]lithium battery[/url] that, if successful, could lead to much longer battery life for smartphones and tablets, but it could take several years for that research to yield practical products. The paper, published in the Nature Nanotechnology scientific journal, talks about how the team has created a way to use lithium in a battery's anode component, rather than the typical electrolyte section. This should should allow for those batteries to keep their charge up to three times the lenght of today's packs, which should please people who have to resort to [url=http://store.wpcentral.com/?utm_term=storelink&utm_content=sidebarmain&utm_campaign=community&utm_source=d_wp&utm_medium=content]external battery packs[/url] to extend their talk or data time.

The cable industry insists that it's ready and able to compete with Google Fiber when it comes to delivering ultra high-speed broadband. Indeed, Comcast CEO Brian Roberts last week showed off a 3Gbps cable broadband connection at the industry's annual trade show in Washington, D.C. That's three times faster than Google Fiber, which itself is nearly 150 times faster than the current average broadband connection in the U.S. Armed with that capability, he confidently welcomed Google's challenge to deliver ultra high-speed broadband to consumers. "I hope there's a demand for (Google Fiber)," he said during a keynote session at the Cable Show. "The more customers crave speed, the more the kids in the garage and the geniuses around the world can invent applications that require speed. That's the best thing that can happen to our industry. We have to embrace that competition." But Roberts' words and one demo don't match up with the actions of his industry. The cable providers ha

I think I have a virus, but the Webroot scan is not detecting anything. At least once a day, my laptop becomes possessed and does things like begins typing in all caps, highlights text, launches new internet pages in a separate window, etc. Does that sound like a virus? (My laptop did tip over once and took a tiny spill, so not sure if that could be the cause.) Please help. Thank you.
Earlier this year, Huawei impressed us with its super-skinny [url=http://reviews.cnet.com/smartphones/huawei-ascend-p2/4505-6452_7-35619073.html]Ascend P2[/url], but now the up-and-coming Chinese firm is looking to wow us a second time with the Ascend P6, a similar Android smartphone with a few hardware tweaks. Huawei is fond of crafting creepily thin phones, and the P6 is no exception, measuring a slender 6.18 millimeters (0.24-inch) thick. The aluminium edges are very reminiscent of the iPhone, but the bottom of the phone is rounded, giving the P6 a tiny bit of original flair. Like the P2, the P6 sports a 4.7-inch 720p display, and plays host to a quad-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz. There's an 8-megapixel camera glued to its rump, while unusually, the front-facing snapper is a 5-megapixel affair, making the P6 ideal for Skype calls or carefully-posed sexy selfies. Inside you'll find a 1.5GHz quad-core chip powering the P6, backed up by a hearty 2GB of RAM. The
