11 Best VPN Services

The need for secure, anonymous connections to the Internet has increased considerably in the past few years, as more and more users come to realize the importance of not being seen and followed online.
We’ve compiled a list of what we consider to be the best Virtual Private Network service providers, grouped by premium, free, and torrent-friendly. We’ll be updating the list regularly, so leave your feedback in the comments for services we should add (or even remove).
 These VPNs offer solutions that will mask your online presence to keep you safe. But remember,

Premium VPNs

Intended for the heavy user, these professional VPN services offer the basic required privacy alongside a range of additional features, from increased encryption and mobile support to unlimited bandwidth and “zero records” keeping a log of what you’re browsing.
The following VPN services offer these features and others besides.

ExpressVPN

With 1,000 physical servers in 136 geographical locations across 87 countries, ExpressVPN’s focus is on speed. You don’t want a slow VPN when you can have a fast one, and ExpressVPN offers privacy on top of this with PTP, L2TP, and OpenVPN protocol support. For $12.95/month you get a wide range of top VPN features, no logging, and Tor support (ExpressVPN has a .onion website, too).

NordVPN

NordVPN has numerous servers across the US, Europe, and Australia that are dedicated to ultra-fast streaming, Tor privacy, anti-DDOS, and more.

Most locations support the PPTP, L2TP, and OpenVPN protocols and all data is encrypted twice for tighter security. All of this is available for $8/month, though discounts are available for 6-month plans at $5/month and annual plans at $4/month.

VyprVPN

Cross platform device support is on offer from VyprVPN, along with a free trial and affordable monthly tariff ($14.99). With desktop and mobile apps, VyprVPN might prove particularly useful to you used in conjunction with OpenELEC/Kodi powered media centers.

TunnelBear

For Android, iOS, Windows and Mac OS X, pricing is reasonable at $49.99/year, an annual charge that works out at $4.16/month. With unlimited tunnelling and a mobile-only plan, note that TunnelBear is offering 256-bit encryption.

As we discussed previously TunnelBear is a particularly good way to enjoy US-only web content, including video and audio. There’s also a $6.99/month option, if an annual subscription is out of your budget range.

Torrent-Friendly VPNs

Useful for encryption, anonymity, and reliability when downloading and sharing on P2P networks, torrent-friendly VPNs are slightly more expensive than the premium options, offering as they do a specialized service for a narrow group of users.

SurfEasy

For just $6.49, SurfEasy Total gives monthly access to its VPN service with unlimited data and ad tracker blocking to users of Android, iOS, Mac OS X and Windows. A subscription gives you support for up to 5 devices, unlimited bandwidth and torrenting.

Private Internet Access

Costing $6.95/month or $39.95/year (Bitcoin accepted), this secure VPN service offers P2P and VOIP support, as well as the ability to use 5 devices simultaneously and unlimited bandwidth!
 A popular choice and recommended by PCMag.com, the fact that it provides VPN for torrenters makes Private Internet Access a particularly attractive choice.

BTGuard

For $9.95 a month you can sign up to BTGuard, whose 10 GBit servers offer unlimited download speeds and anonymous P2P torrent traffic. BTGuard runs with Windows, OS X and Linux, and accepts Bitcoin.

IPVanish

Our final recommendation for a torrent-friendly VPN comes in the shape of IPVanish, available for as little as $6.49/month with annual billing ($10/month for monthly billing). With over 500 VPN servers spread across 60+ countries, you get unlimited P2P traffic and unlimited bandwidth regardless. Claiming to be the world’s fastest VPN, IPVanish is available for Windows, Windows Phone, macOS, Linux, iOS, Android, Chromebook and even routers.

Free VPNs

Not all VPNs are paid services. If you have only an occasional need to access the web or other online service via a VPN, then signing up with a free service makes sense, especially if you’re concerned about payment privacy and don’t have a Bitcoin wallet.

CyberGhost Free

Unlike the premium service, free access to CyberGhost is ad-supported and works only with Windows, Mac OS X and Android. Speed is capped.

TunnelBear Free

With a monthly allowance of 500 MB a month, TunnelBear’s free option is potentially limiting to your VPN requirements. However, you can get a bonus 1 GB of data by taking part in the company’s Twitter promotion. Tunnelbear Free is compatible with Windows, OS X, iOS and Android.

OkayFreedom

Like TunnelBear’s free service, OkayFreedom caps your VPN allowance at 500 MB a month, which means you will need to use it sparingly in most cases, even with an extra 100 MB available per referral. This free service is ad-supported, but can be slow at times.

VPNs for Netflix

You may be reviewing this list to find a VPN solution that is going to work as a Netflix region blocking bypass. While Netflix has asserted that it will be blocking VPNs to prevent this from happening in the future, some services seem to have found away around this, such as ExpressVPN.

How to Install Microsoft Text Fonts in Ubuntu Linux

 
Windows-based fonts don’t appear by default on Linux-based systems like Ubuntu. In most cases, this isn’t a huge problem, but if you want to improve compatibility between word processors, then it might be useful to have Microsoft fonts on your Ubuntu PC.
For instance, you might be a student, using a Windows PC at college, and your own Ubuntu device at home — or vice versa. You might have other versions for importing Microsoft fonts into Ubuntu, though. Perhaps you want the Verdana or Times New Roman fonts on your Ubuntu desktop. Or you might be working on some DTP or artistic project, and need some Microsoft-originated fonts.
Either way, this is a straightforward change to make to your Ubuntu Linux computer.

Microsoft TrueType Fonts

Back in 1996, Microsoft released a package of fonts, called “TrueType core fonts for the web” with a licence giving any user permission to install them. Naturally, in true Microsoft style, the aim was for their fonts to become dominant.
Although cancelled six years later, the font pack is still available, and includes:
  • Andale Mono
  • Arial Black
  • Arial (Bold, Italic, Bold Italic)
  • Comic Sans MS (Bold)
  • Courier New (Bold, Italic, Bold Italic)
  • Georgia (Bold, Italic, Bold Italic)
  • Impact
  • Times New Roman (Bold, Italic, Bold Italic)
  • Trebuchet (Bold, Italic, Bold Italic)
  • Verdana (Bold, Italic, Bold Italic)
  • Webdings
You’ll probably recognize most of these; Times New Roman used to be the default text for Word (replaced by Calibri in 2007), while Impact is the sort of font that appears on posters around the word. And as for webdings…
Of course, you might not require any of these fonts. After all, Ubuntu and other distributions already feature a wide selection of adequate substitute fonts thanks to the inclusion of the Red Hat “Liberation Fonts” package. They’re not completely identical, but these fonts do use the same widths as the Microsoft fonts they replace.
Which is why you might want the real thing.
In short, if Microsoft fonts were installed in Linux, your Linux apps — anything ranging from LibreOffice Writer (which takes seconds to install) to GIMP — would present them as options. LibreOffice could benefit from it, especially if you’re struggling to transition from Microsoft Word.

Install Microsoft TrueType Fonts in Ubuntu

In older versions of Ubuntu, it was possible to install these fonts using the Software Center, but this is no longer an option. Fortunately, you can just use the command line instead.
Launch the terminal, then use this command to install the ttf-mscorefonts-installer package.
sudo apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer
Unusually, you’ll be prompted to agree to a Microsoft EULA (here’s how to understand an EULA). Now, this is the bristly bit: you might have reservations about this. Although these TrueType fonts have been made available for free, you’ll notice that they’re not open source. Also, the EULA has “Microsoft” pasted all over it.

But, if you aren’t a pure open source user, carry on, scrolling through the EULA with the Page Up/Down keys. Use Tab or the arrow keys to select Yes and agree to the EULA with Enter.
Once downloaded into your system, the fonts will be configured so that they can be used in the usual apps.
If you’re using a different Linux distribution, you may find that the ttf-mscorefonts-installer package isn’t available. However, an alternative should be open to you, under a slightly different name. A few minutes of research should turn this up.

Running a Dual Boot Windows and Linux System? Try This!

If you have both Windows and Ubuntu operating systems installed on the same PC, you don’t even need to download the fonts, as you already have them installed in Windows. This means that you can copy the fonts into Ubuntu.
More importantly, this is a great way to pull all manner of modern, cool fonts from Windows into Linux. ClearType fonts like Calibri can be added to your system this way.
In Ubuntu, you should be able to easily browse the partition where Windows is installed, using your default file manager. Next, you’ll need to copy fonts from the directory in the Windows partition to your Linux fonts directory.
mkdir /usr/share/fonts/WindowsFonts
Then copy the contents of the mounted Windows drive fonts directory into the WindowsFonts location:
cp /Windowsdrive/Windows/Fonts/* /usr/share/fonts/WindowsFonts
Change permissions for the directory and its contents:
chmod 755 /usr/share/fonts/WindowsFonts/*
Then regenerate the Linux fontconfig cache with
fc-cache
That’s all there is to it.

All Done? Test Your Fonts

As with anything, it’s worth checking that the fonts have been installed. The easiest way to check is to open LibreOffice Writer, or find an art package and create a text box. If they don’t look right, you may need to enable smoothing. In Ubuntu, this is handled by default. (On other Linux operating systems, you can fix it by checking the font settings (typically in the Preferences screen) and find the option to enable smoothing.)

Once you’re happy with the fonts, you can even set your favorite as a default option in LibreOffice writer. With the word processor running, open Tools > Options > LibreOffice Writer > Basic Fonts (Western) and select your preferred font. Click OK to confirm; all future documents you create will use these defaults.

7 Free Text Editors for Android

Android devices may be at the bottom of your “Ways I’d Prefer to Edit Text” list, but perhaps that’s only because you haven’t found the right text editing app yet. With the right setup, an Android device can be quite productive (and far more convenient than lugging around a laptop).
Enter the distraction-free text editor app. In this context, “distraction-free” means an app that maximizes the amount of screen space for editing text by minimizing interface clutter and other potential distractions. If you’ve used distraction-free editors on a PC, you know the drill.
More importantly, “text editor” isn’t the same as “word processor” or “note-taking app.” Word processor documents contain all kinds of formatting information and other unnecessary bits, whereas a text editor works with plain text. Note-taking apps have their own notebooks and formats, whereas a text editor can work with individual files on your device.
So you won’t find any Android office suites (e.g., Google Docs) or Android note-taking apps (e.g., OneNote) in this post. This is all about distraction-free text editors and the best ones available to you right now.

1. iA Writer


You may know of iA Writer as one of the best word processors for Mac and iOS, but “word processor” is a misnomer, at least for the Android app. This is a plain text editor that’s designed from the ground up for a “focused writing experience.” It’s simultaneously simple yet beautiful.
The integrated file browser makes it easy to find and open any file on your system, and the app supports both plain text and Markdown editing. Focus Mode improves concentration even further and Night Mode helps with eye strain when ambient light is lacking.
iA Writer can export text in HTML, PDF, and Microsoft Word formats and can also publish directly to Medium. It also supports file synchronization with Dropbox and Google Drive.
Download — iA Writer (Free)

2. Monospace


Monospace is about as minimal as it gets. I’ve never seen such an “empty” interface, but in this case, empty is exactly what you want. Monospace strips away every possible thing that could be a distraction, which leaves us with the most barebones, essentials-only text editor you can imagine.
You can’t even change the font, which is monospaced and most conducive to concentration (hence the app’s name). It supports basic Markdown formatting, and the only non-essential feature is the hashtag-based organization feature. Instead of worrying about folder organization, use hashtags, and Monospace will handle organization for you.
Download — Monospace (Free)

3. Writer Plus


Writer Plus is yet another plain text and Markdown text editor in the vein of both iA Writer and Monospace. Its main focus is on light use of system resources, maximizing battery life, and making sure the app is as robust and crash-free as possible. It’s excellent for older or weaker Android devices.
As far as features go, you get the bare essentials: folder organization, basic Markdown formatting, Night Mode for reduced eye strain, word and character counts, and basic Undo/Redo functionality. If you connect a keyboard to your Android device, you can also use a handful of nifty keyboard shortcuts.
Download — Writer Plus (Free)

4. JotterPad


JotterPad is a text editor for creative types, thus it offers a bit more creative control than the other apps above. But you don’t need to be creative to benefit from JotterPad. The slick interface and distraction-free design are great for anyone who has text to edit.
Special features include phrase finding, keyboard shortcuts, custom fonts, typewriter scrolling, and style customizations. Markdown formatting and exporting are also supported. Some features, like syntax highlighting and the English rhyme thesaurus, are locked behind in-app purchases.
Download — JotterPad (Free with in-app purchases)

5. QuickEdit Text Editor


If your text editing needs involve programming of any kind, QuickEdit Text Editor should be one of the first apps you check out. It offers the widest range of syntax highlighting I’ve seen, with over 40 languages supported out of the box: C#, C++, Java, PHP, Python, Ruby, Swift, and many more.
Notable features include highly-optimized performance, opening multiple files at once, line numbers, unlimited Undo/Redo, search and replace, preview for HTML/CSS/Markdown files, synchronization with cloud services, and optimized interface for tablet devices. The free version is feature-restricted but more than good enough for text editing.
Download — QuickEdit Text Editor (Free, $2.99)

6. Jota+ Text Editor


Like QuickEdit Text Editor, Jota+ Text Editor is designed for programmers but can be used by anyone. In addition to supporting web languages like HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, it also highlights syntax for C, C++, Lua, PHP, Python, Ruby, and more. Notable features include opening multiple files at once, search and replace, custom font settings, line numbers, customizable interface, and synchronization with cloud services.
Unfortunately, the free version is feature-restricted and ad-supported, which kind of defeats the whole “distraction-free” idea. QuickEdit is arguably better and cheaper, so I only recommend Jota+ if you don’t like or can’t use QuickEdit for whatever reason.
Download — Jota+ Text Editor (Free with ads, $5.99)

7. Notepad Text Editor


Notepad Text Editor is the bare essentials app of choice for scripters. It only supports a handful of file types (TXT, HTML, CSS, PHP, and XML), it has an outdated interface, and it doesn’t have many features — but it’s free and works in a pinch.
Download — Notepad Text Editor (Free with ads)

Which Text Editor Is Right for You?

For writing only, go with iA Writer for true simplicity and JotterPad if you need a bit of creative flair. If you’re going to edit code as well, it doesn’t get much better than QuickEdit. Of all the distraction-free text editing apps, these three are the best of the best.
One last thing: Know that you can connect a USB keyboard to any Android device to instantly boost finger comfort and typing speed. Obviously you won’t want to carry a keyboard with you everywhere you go, but it can come in handy when you need to edit at home.
We also recommend eliminating these distracting Android apps and looking into how Android can make you more productive at home.

How to Watch Live MLB Games on Facebook


Facebook will be streaming 20 Major League Baseball (MLB) games during the 2017 season. The games, one every friday night for the next 20 weeks, will be streamed live on Facebook. Anyone who’s on Facebook and based in the United States can watch the games completely for free.

The internet has changed everything. From the way we communicate, to the way we consume content. Sometimes these two things overlap, with a social network helping people consume content. Which is what’s happening as a result of a new deal between Facebook and MLB.

Facebook Streams Live Baseball

According to Reuters, the new deal means 20 Major League Baseball games will be streamed on Facebook over the next 20 weeks. Every game will be played on a Friday night, with the first game on the roster being the Cincinnati Reds vs the Colorado Rockies at 7:10pm ET tonight (May 19).
You can watch the games on the MLB Facebook page. They’ll be streamed live, and be free for anyone signed up to Facebook. Which is pretty much everyone at this point. Facebook hasn’t yet revealed the full lineup of games, with only tonight’s game confirmed so far.
Dan Reed, Facebook’s Head of Global Sports Partnerships, said in a statement, “Baseball games are uniquely engaging community experiences, as the chatter and rituals in the stands are often as meaningful to fans as the action on the diamond. By distributing a live game per week on Facebook, Major League Baseball can re-imagine this social experience on a national scale”.
This is the latest in a string of deals between websites and professional sports leagues. Twitter has previously streamed NFL, MLB, and NHL games, and Amazon recently paid $50 million to stream 10 NFL games. And with more people than ever cutting the cord, these deals will keep on coming. Everyone Else Is Cutting the Cord, So Why Aren't You? Everyone Else Is Cutting the Cord, So Why Aren't You? I cut the cord back in 2013 and more and more people are following suit, completely ditching their cable service. But not everyone is cutting the cord, and we decided to find out why... 

Free Is Free So Stop Complaining

This is clearly aimed at people who aren’t so into baseball they can already watch games, but who are interested enough that they’ll sit watching people throw a ball around for three hours. Which may be a relatively small percentage of the population. Still, it’s free, so who are we to complain.
Do you regularly watch Major League Baseball? If so, how do you watch MLB games? Do you pay for the privilege? Will you be watching the MLB games on Facebook? Do you appreciate Facebook signing the deal to make this happen? Please let us know in the comments below!

7 Free Operating Systems You Maybe Never Realized Existed

Chances are, your computer came with Windows or macOS. These operating systems may seem free, but they’re not. Manufacturers have to pay Microsoft a license to ship with Windows, and you need to buy a copy if you want to install Windows yourself. macOS updates are free, but they’re only available to people who have purchased Macs. The cost is hidden in the price of the computer.
There are many operating systems that actually are free. Most of them are pretty unknown. The most popular is Linux, and if you’re a regular around these parts, that name is hardly unfamiliar. But keep reading. By the time you finish this list, Linux will seem downright mainstream. Here are ten other free operating systems that most of us have never heard of.

1. FreeBSD

If you’re using a free operating system that isn’t Linux, then it’s probably based on BSD. FreeBSD is only one of several UNIX-like operating systems. Others include NetBSD, OpenBSD, and PC-BSD. Whichever one you use, much of the experience is similar to what you will find on Linux. Free and open source software available for one is typically able to run on the other. 3 UNIX-Like Operating Systems That Aren't Linux 3 UNIX-Like Operating Systems That Aren't Linux Recently, people started to confuse "UNIX" with "Linux." Linux was influenced by UNIX, but UNIX systems have no relation to Linux. Here are some important UNIX-based systems worth knowing about. Read More
Even if you’re not a free software lover, you may be using parts of FreeBSD without realizing it. Due to the project’s permissive license, some of the code has made its way into Apple macOS, the Sony PlayStation 4, and Juniper routers.


2. ReactOS

Most free operating systems provide an alternative to Windows. ReactOS, in a sense, strives to be Windows. The goal is giving users a means to run software made for Windows without having to buy an operating system from Microsoft.


ReactOS is a free and open source operating system, so it can’t utilize any of Windows’ actual code. The project has partially implemented many Windows APIs, and it collaborates with the Wine project to get programs up and running. How to Run Windows Apps & Games with Linux Wine How to Run Windows Apps & Games with Linux Wine Is there any way to get Windows software working on Linux? One answer is to use Wine, but while it can be very useful, it probably should only be your last resort. Here's why. Read More

3. FreeDOS

Do you live in the terminal? Did you use computers back when that was the only option? Are you having fond memories of MS-DOS?
FreeDOS lets you relive that bygone era. The barebones OS gives you a means to run old DOS programs on more modern hardware or inside a virtual machine. Or you can just use it to run old games. 7 Sites To Find The Best Classic DOS Games 7 Sites To Find The Best Classic DOS Games Read More
 

4. Haiku

Haiku draws inspiration from BeOS. Drawing a blank? Me too. BeOS was a graphical operating system developed by Be Inc to run on the BeBox back in 1995. The operating system stuck around for five years, before the last update went out in 2000.
BeOS may not have been a household name, but it picked up some users, and a few wanted to see the OS live on enough to create their own open source version. The goal is for software written for BeOS to work on Haiku, sort of like what ReactOS wants to do with Windows. All things considered, the Haiku team probably has an easier job on its hands.


5. illumos

Oracle used to maintain an operating system called Solaris. It was originally closed source, but the project became open in 2008. Oracle discontinued OpenSolaris in 2010 and went back to a proprietary model with Solaris 11 in 2011.
illumos is an effort to keep OpenSolaris alive. Like Linux, you don’t download illumos directly. Instead, you grab a distribution such as DilOS or openindiana.


6. Syllable

Syllable is based on AtheOS, an AmigaOS clone that was abandoned around the turn of the century. As for AmigaOS, it’s still alive despite being born in the 80s for a line of computers long considered ancient.
Syllable targets home and home office users with a usable interface and native apps, including a Webkit-based web browser and an email client. Thing is, it can do this on a computer with only 32MB of RAM (though at least 64MB is recommended for browsing). The full installation should only take up around 250MB of hard drive space.


7. AROS Research Operating System

While Syllable is based on an AmigaOS clone, AROS takes a different approach. It actually aims to be binary compatible with AmigaOS at the API level. This is similar to how ReactOS targets Windows, and Haiku targets BeOS.
You may be wondering if it’s worth giving AmigaOS this much attention. Did I mention that AmigaOS is still around? It’s not free either. Someone out there is still willing to pay for an operating system most people have never heard of. AROS offers a way to use some AmigaOS programs without having to hand over money. Plus it’s open source, which may leave you feeling more secure. Is Security Through Obscurity Safer Than Open Source Software? Is Security Through Obscurity Safer Than Open Source Software? Open source software comes with clear security benefits. The opposite approach is security through obscurity. Is one approach actually safer than the other or is it possible that there's truth to both?

Samsung Galaxy S8 problems and solutions

 
 A couple of months ago, the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ were released with considerable fanfare by the Korean manufacturer. This is completely understandable, considering the trail of disaster that was left in the wake of the Note 7's fiery demise. The company is banking on its new flagship to help it turn its fortunes around, but like a lot of new smart devices it's not without its issues. The most recent issue that users have been complaining about is that the audio of their Galaxy S8 and S8+ is cutting off at random.

Samsung Galaxy S8 audio problems

Users in Samsung's Community Forum have recently been reporting that they are having audio issues with their Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ devices. Users state that the sound/audio of their S8/S8+ cuts off at random when they are playing music, streaming YouTube videos or playing games. As far as we understand, this issue seems to only affect sound coming out of the speakers and not audio that's coming through headphones. Users are speculating that the audio issues are due to loose wiring, a theory backed up by the fact that if you apply some pressure just above the speakers, the audio comes back on. Apparently violently shaking the S8 reproduces the same problem. If true, this would definitely point to a hardware issue - meaning a simple software update won't fix the audio issue on the Galaxy S8.

So is there a solution to fix the Galaxy S8 audio issues?

Samsung has responded to some users that it could be an app or a software that's causing the issues and recommended them to put their devices in safe mode for 1-2 hours and monitor the audio usage. This apparently did not fix the problem though.
Another user pointed out that both the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge had similar issues with the audio cutting out and recommended the following solution:
Enable the developer options on your Galaxy S8 if you haven't already done so. Go into the Developer Options -> scroll down to Media -> and toggle Prevent USB audio routing on. This apparently solved the audio issue on the Galaxy S7 and might prove to work for the S8 and S8+ as well. 
 

If you want to test the speakers of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ in a safe menu, go into your phone's dialer and type *#0*#


Samsung Galaxy S8 rebooting issue

In recent weeks a number of users have been reporting on the Samsung Community forum that their Galaxy S8 and S8+ devices keep on restarting. One quick fix done is to do a factory reset but the problem resurfaces after a few hours. A few users have reportedly tried rebooting to resolve this issue, but discovered that after this their phones will not turn back on again at all.
 

There hasn't been any official response from the company on this issue to date, but the indicators are that this could be related to the microSD card. Some users have reported seeing a “Transfer files to SD card” notification after restarting the phone, whereas others have said they are experiencing even more problems after they transferred or removed all the apps from the card.
Samsung has reportedly advised that any affected customers should send in their devices for repair, exchange or for a full refund. That said, to date there has been no official statement from the company on this issue. This is a major problem that it will ultimately need to respond to as this is a major issue: constant restarting on any smartphone will make the device completely useless. Hopefully, all that will be needed is a software update to resolve this fault, but in the absence of any word from Samsung it might be time for us to prepare for the worst.

Samsung Galaxy S8 display problems

One of the major selling points for both the Galaxy S8 and S8+ is their super AMOLED displays, which gives both devices very accurate color representations. It was also here that Samsung had its first reported issues with the S8 and S8+, as numerous users reported via Reddit that there was "bleeding" on the display resulting in discolored, red-tinted screens.


According to one Reddit user, this issue is nothing more than a limitation with Samsung’s OLED panels. To get even more technical, this is the result of Samsung's use of low-temperature polycrystalline silicon instead of a material like indium gallium zinc oxide.
Samsung has already responded to this issue by distributing a software update, which regulates the color balance of the device. The company says it is simply offering "a further enhanced ability to adjust the color setting to their preference," so once you receive the update you can adjust the display even more than when you first took it out of the box. Whether or not this actually goes someway to resolving the issue remains to be seen. We haven't had a chance to test these ourselves yet, but as soon as we have we'll let you know if the update is the answer to your prayers or the thing of nightmares. Keep watching this space.
Are experiencing issues with your new Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8+? Have you been able to find a way of resolving them? Let us know in the comments below.

Huawei P10 common problems and their solutions



 The Huawei P10 is without a doubt an excellent smartphone. But that doesn’t mean it’s perfect. In this article, you’ll find a list of the most common problems with Huawei’s latest device, and their solutions.

The battery drains quickly

The 3200 mAh battery in the Huawei P10 isn’t incredible in terms of battery life. Using the device intensively every day will require you to charge it every evening. Of course, Super Charge technology can bypass this problem by charging 50% of the battery in just 30 minutes, but if you're out all day without access to a plug, you’ll have to find another way to save battery.

While awaiting a future software update that can fix, or at least improve, the problem, you can try the following tips not only for the P10, but for virtually any smartphone with battery problems:
  • Disable Wi-Fi when you don’t need it.
  • Close active background apps and those that consume a lot of power.
  • Turn on the power saving options in Settings > Battery. Among them, you'll find an option that reduces screen resolution to reduce power consumption.
  • Turn off the automatic brightness of the screen.


My Huawei P10 doesn’t recognize my SIM card

Upon entering the USSD codes to access my remaining credit, a message appears on the screen informing me that my smartphone isn’t connected to any network. There is no SIM card detected, and the only possible solution is to restart the device. In some cases, you'll need to open the slot that contains the SIM card, and reposition the card.


 

Problems with Bluetooth on my Huawei P10

Some users have encountered problems when they try to connect their smartphones to a Bluetooth device. This hasn't actually happened to me: I usually connect my P10 to a Philips headset without any issue. If, however, you’re unable to connect your headset or other Bluetooth device to your smartphone, you should first make sure that the problem is really with the P10: connect the Bluetooth device to another smartphone, and if the two devices connect without a problem, try the following on your P10:
  • Make sure that you’ve enabled Bluetooth by dragging down the drop-down menu on the home screen, or by going to Settings > Bluetooth. If it’s already activated, deactivate it, wait a few seconds, then reactivate it.
  • Turn off Bluetooth, restart the smartphone, and activate the Bluetooth option.
  • If the problem persists, go to Settings > Bluetooth and remove the previously connected devices before adding them again.
  • As a last resort, you can restore the smartphone to its factory settings: go to Settings > Advanced Settings > Backup and Reset > Reset to factory settings. Before doing this, save all your data by performing a backup.

HOW To Remove DLL Errors


 DLL is the short form of Dynamic Link Library. The library contains executable functions or data that can be used by a Windows application.
Dynamic link library may provide a particular function, and the program can access the service by either creating a static or dynamic link. A program creates a dynamic link contrary to a static link that remains during program execution. A DLL may also contain just data.

Several applications can use a DLL at the same moment. Some DLLs can operate on any Windows application since they are provided with Windows operating system. DLL are files that allow programs on your computer to share codes so as to run certain tasks. Dynamic Link Library files are important because they enhance the performing of certain functions.
However, not all DLL files are advantageous to your computer. Harmful DLL files need to be completely erased from a computer system before they can cause harm to the user or the computer system itself. If the DLL errors are assumed then, a hacker may potentially have access to your computer and bypass all security systems including passwords. Moreover, persistent DLL errors can escalate to slow or crash the computer system. There are many ways to solve DLL errors illustrated below:
Unregister the DLL using recovery console.
DLL files must be deregistered before you begin to delete them. When you find it hard to unregister or delete some DLL files, it is possible that there is a virus attached to a DLL file. The virus makes it hard to delete the unwanted DLL file in a safe mode. To cope up with this problem, running recovery console on your Windows, CD would be a preferable solution. So as to complete deleting the file, you will need your admin password that you ought to have written and saved.
Erase harmful DLL using anti-virus applications.
You can also run an antivirus program on your computer, clean the internet tempt folder then restart your computer followed by turning the system off, reboot and lastly turn it back on. In so doing the harmful DLL files, are erased.
Manually erase DLL from a computer system.
  1. At times, you still find it still hard to unregister the files. It would be a fine choice to follow these steps below to eliminate the DLL errors manually.
  2. First open command prompt, from the start menu, select run option and type cmd.
  3. Secondly navigate to the exact location of the DLL file and type the name of the file you are trying to unregister.
  4. Finally, press enter and the confirmation window will state DLL Unregister Server.
  5. Confirm and deregistration process and restart your computer and the DLL is unregistered from your computer.
Use a software to fix your DLL errors automatically.
It can be difficult to erase or repair DLL files manually, and if you feel confused and don’t know where to start, I can recommend using a software like DLL File Fixer. This software has access to a large database and can locate and fix DLL files or eliminate harmful DLL files automatically. It can also clean the Windows registry, so you get kind of an all-in-one optimizer, if you decide to use DLL File Fixer. It’s of course more satisfying to fix computer errors manually, but if the wrong files are removed, a small error can grow to become a system crash.

How to Block Windows 10 Upgrade

 
In the coming weeks, Microsoft will push more than ever for you to upgrade to Windows 10 because from July 29 on the upgrade will cost $119. For Microsoft, it’s more valuable if you upgrade now — for free — because Windows 10 creates long-term revenue and it’s easier to support.
And we all know you won’t pay to upgrade your old Windows 7 or 8 machine.
Microsoft speculates that once you do wake up to Windows 10, chances are you won’t go back. Maybe you’ll enjoy Windows 10 or you won’t know how to downgrade. But what if you do want to continue running Windows 7 or 8?

How to Avoid the Windows 10 Upgrade

Microsoft has been trying several different tactics to get you to upgrade. First, they launched the Get Windows 10 app, which featured ever new pop-up windows, alerts, and messages designed to make you upgrade.
Most recently, they made Windows 10 a recommended upgrade. We covered this development in our post on How to NOT Upgrade to Windows 10
.
The takeaway from all that we’ve covered on the aggressive Windows 10 upgrade so far is:
  1. When the Get Windows 10 app pops up and announced your upgrade was scheduled, find the link Click here to change upgrade schedule or cancel scheduled upgrade and cancel it. Note that closing the window using the X button will no longer cancel the upgrade!
  2. Manually remove updates and apply registry keys to remove or block the Get Windows 10 app.
  3. If Windows Update wants to get the upgrade started, simply Decline the EULA.
  4. Disable recommended updates in Windows Update.
  5. Clean up the already downloaded installation files to recover disk space.
You can try to keep on top of Microsoft’s latest moves and manually counteract them or you can let a third-party application take care of it. We recommend these two:
  • GWX Control Panel was one of the first tools to remove the Get Windows 10 notification and it also keeps Windows Update in check.
  • Never10 can apply reversible system configurations to disable the Windows 10 upgrade and it helps you clean up left over Windows 10 installation files.

How to Undo a Windows 10 Upgrade

You literally woke up to Windows 10 installed on your computer! Or maybe the setup is still in progress. Do nothing until it’s done!
You have three options:
  1. Re-install your previous Windows version.
  2. Install a system backup you made.
  3. Roll back or downgrade within the next 30 days.
We have covered all downgrade methods in depth in our article on How to Downgrade from Windows 10 to Windows 7 or 8.1.
Here’s a brief summary of the third option: Press Windows key + I to launch the Settings app, head to Update & Security > Recovery, and under Go back to Windows 7 / 8.1 click Get started.
windows 10 recovery
This method only works if your previous installation was backed up into a Windows.old folder, as it should have. Also note that the rollback option expires after 30 days or when you update Windows 10 to a new version.
Now that you know how to undo or — better yet — prevent an involuntary Windows 10 upgrade, you can sleep tight again.

How to Toggle Touchscreen in Windows 10

 
If you have a touch-enabled device for Windows 10, you might be wondering how you can enable and disable the touchscreen on your system. While it’s not immediately obvious, it is possible to toggle this feature. And you can even automate it with a shortcut!
Oddly, Microsoft doesn’t support this toggle with a handy option in the new Settings section. Nevertheless, with a bit of effort we can create our own, which will allow you to turn your touchscreen on and off in seconds.
If you have your own method to share on how to toggle the touchscreen, please let us know in the comments below.

How to Toggle the Touchscreen

Windows 10 doesn’t have a built-in method to turn your touchscreen on and off. Though unlikely, it’s possible that your system manufacturer has included its own software to help you manage the touchscreen; please refer to the guide that came with your system.
If the feature is missing, you need to use Device Manager to disable and enable your touchscreen. First, right-click the Start button or press Windows key + X to open the quick access menu. From here, select Device Manager. Alternatively, do a system search for this tool. A new window will open, which lists all the devices detected on your system.
disable touchscreen
Double click on the Human Interface Devices heading to expand the list of devices within. From here, right-click on HID-compliant touch screen and select Disable.
You will then receive a warning message, telling you that disabling this device will cause it to stop functioning. As this is exactly what we want, click Yes to proceed. The touchscreen will instantly be disabled and no further action is required.
If you want to turn the touchscreen back on, simply repeat the above process, but when right-clicking the touchscreen option you will select Enable. However, this may require a system restart to take effect.

Automate the Toggle Process

If you constantly need to enable and disable your touchscreen, it’s a bit of a hassle to keep going into the Device Manager. To combat this, we can create a shortcut, which will automate the process. It’s a bit complicated, so ensure to follow the instructions carefully. We have split up the steps to make it easy to follow.

1. Set Up Windows Device Console

First, you need to download software called Windows Device Console, or Devcon for short. Normally this comes bundled with Visual Studio Express, but that download is far too bloated for our purposes. Handily, joequery.me has kindly separated the software into a standalone download. The site is also where this process came from, so many thanks to them.
devcon folder
Once downloaded, unzip the folder. Navigate inside the Windows 8.1 folder (it works perfectly for Windows 10, don’t worry) and then into the folder for your operating system version, 32bit or 64bit. If you’re not sure which you have, check out our guide on discovering your bit version.
Now press Windows key + R to open Run, input C:\Windows\System32 and press OK. Then move the Devcon executable into this folder. You may have to provide administrator permissions to drag&drop the devcon.exe into the System32 folder.
devcon system32
Right-click devcon.exe, select Properties, head to the Compatibility tab and check Run this program as an administrator.

2. Find the Hardware ID

Next, press Windows key + X and select Device Manager. Then double click the Human Interface Devices heading. Right-click the HID-compliant touch screen device listing, then select Properties.
With the Properties window now open, switch to the Details tab. Using the Property dropdown, select Hardware Ids. The value of interest to you will be in the following format:
HID\VID_####&PID_####&COL##
device manager hardware ids
Leave this window open for now. We’ll come back to it in a moment.

3. Create a Batch File

Now open Notepad, which you can find by doing a system search. Paste in the following:
set "touchscreenid=ID_HERE"
devcon status "%touchscreenid%" | findstr "running"
if %errorlevel% == 0 (
    devcon disable "%touchscreenid%"
) else (
    devcon enable "%touchscreenid%"
)
Switch back to the Properties window that we were using previously. Right click the relevant value and select Copy. Then replace ID_HERE in Notepad with the value that you just copied to your clipboard.
In Notepad go to File > Save As… and name the file touchscreen.bat. Save this anywhere you like; somewhere like your Documents would be a good place. What we did here was to create a simple batch file to automate a system process.

4. Create a Shortcut

We now need to turn this into a handy shortcut. Navigate to the file you just saved, then right click it and select Create shortcut.
Next, right click the shortcut and select Properties. Within the Target text field, place double quotation marks around the path. Then prefix it with cmd.exe /C. An example Target would be:
cmd.exe /C "C:\UsersJoe\Documents\touchscreen.bat"
touchscreen shortcut
From the Run dropdown, select Minimized so that Command Prompt doesn’t open each time you select the shortcut. Finally, click Advanced…, tick Run as administrator, then click OK and OK again.
You can also set up a keyboard shortcut that will run the batch file. Press the Shortcut key file and enter a key combination you can remember and that isn’t occupied, yet. Maybe something like CTRL + ALT + T.
And it’s done! Place this shortcut wherever you like, perhaps on your desktop or on your Taskbar. Simply open it and it’ll then enable or disable your touchscreen automatically.

Having Problems?

If you’re having problems getting this to work, first reread the instructions and make sure you’ve followed every step and copied the correct ID. A small mistake can make the entire process break, so be careful. If you’re sure you’ve done it all properly and are still having problems, we can create two separate batch files – one for enabling and another for disabling.
First, follow the process above, but for step 3 paste the following in Notepad:
set "touchscreenid=ID_HERE"
devcon disable "%touchscreenid%"
Replace ID_HERE as detailed above and save the file as touchscreendisable.bat. Then continue with the instructions above. When setting a keyboard shortcut, you can use something like CTRL + ALT + D. Now opening this file or using that shortcut will disable your touchscreen.
Next, create another Notepad file and paste the following:
set "touchscreenid=ID_HERE"
devcon enable "%touchscreenid%"
Again, replace ID_HERE and save the file as touchscreenenable.bat. Then carry on with the instructions above. You can set a shortcut like CTRL + ALT + E. This file and shortcut will enable your touchscreen.
To summarize, rather than using a single script to both enable and disable the touchscreen, depending on its current state, we have split this into two separate scripts because the 2-in-1 solution might not work on every system.

Touch On, Touch Off

If you’ve used Continuum, the feature that allows you to switch between desktop and tablet modes, then you might have wanted to disable your touchscreen when in desktop mode. Or perhaps your system comes with touch abilities that you just don’t want to use. Whatever the situation, hopefully this guide has helped.
If you’re running a tablet on Windows 10 and are having problems with it, check out our guide on resolving tablet touchscreen problems to see if it’ll help before resorting to disabling it entirely.

How to Legally Download Office 2016 & 2013 Free From Microsoft

 
If you own a product key for Microsoft Office, but don’t have the installation files available, it’s really simple to download them direct from Microsoft. Whether Office was included with your system purchase, you’ve lost the disc, or just want a copy of the files, we’ll show you the different methods available.
Don’t forget that if you have an Office 365 subscription, you’re entitled to Office 2016 for free. Regardless, these steps will work, whether you’re on the latest auto-updated version or the slightly older Office 2013.
If you think we’ve missed a legal method to download Office for free from Microsoft, please do share it in the comments.

How to Obtain Legal Office Installation Files

1. From an Office 365 Subscription

If you have an active Office 365 subscription, you’re entitled to download the full versions of some of the most popular Office applications, like Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. This is also applicable if your business has an Enterprise license.
Navigate to the Office account page and log in with the email address your Office license is tied to, whether that’s a personal or organization account. Fill out your details, click Sign in, and click Install Office to navigate to your account. To begin the download click Install.


If you’re using an enterprise account, you should be redirected to your organization’s Office page, where you can click Install now to grab the programs. However, ensure you untick Make Bing your search engine and Make MSN your browser homepage before doing so, unless that’s what you want of course.

2. From a License Key

If your new system came with a copy of Office, it may already be pre-installed. If not, you should have been provided with a product key from the manufacturer, which you can use to download Office from Microsoft.
Alternatively, if you had a copy of Office on disc which is now broken or misplaced, you can use the same method to download replacement installation files.


Whatever your situation, head to Microsoft’s Download Office page and input your 25-character product key. Click Next, then sign in to your Microsoft account. Once your settings are confirmed, you’ll be given a link to download your relevant version of Office.

3. Order a Backup Disc

This isn’t a download, nor is it completely free, but it’s still worth including on this list as an alternative way to get your copy of Office. If you have a disc copy of Office and want to order an additional copy, you can do so for a small fee and have it shipped to you.
For this, go to the Microsoft Office install media site. Input your product key, select your language, and verify with a CAPTCHA. Next, follow the rest of the steps through to order your replacement disc.


An alternative method would be to go to your account page, where you can choose to purchase a disc, and have it shipped to you, or alternatively you can download an ISO which you can burn to a disc yourself.

Installation Process

The installation process will be essentially the same across all the methods. It’s incredibly simple and quick. First, open the installation file from the disc or download. A window will appear to detail that Office is being installed.
When complete, a message will read “You’re all set! Office is installed now” and you’ll see an animation of where to find the Office programs on your computer. It’ll depend on your operating system exactly where they are stored, but they will be in the Start Menu and you can always do a Windows system search if needed.


When you open an Office program for the first time, it will ask you to agree to the license agreement, so click Accept if you do. You might also see the Microsoft Office Activation Wizard; follow the instructions for this. It’s always best to select I want to activate the software over the Internet for the speediest activation.

Not Free Enough?

These methods are all well and good if you already own Office, but perhaps you’re looking for a free Office alternative. If that’s the case, check out our guide on how to get Word for free – and yes, it’s completely legal!
If you need a full office suite package and aren’t willing to pay out, you might want to look into alternative products. We’ve rounded up some comparisons that you should read, like our review of FreeOffice and analysis of the new LibreOffice.

12 Raspberry Pi Projects for 3D Printers

 
There is, perhaps, no better gadget for your DIY projects than a 3D printer. With a device capable of building every case, frame, arm, and more, it’s a must-have piece of kit.
Similarly, the Raspberry Pi is also a vital tool in the tech DIYer’s arsenal, suitable for everything from home media centers and smart home management, to launching into space!
So what happens when you put these two DIY staples together? Let’s take a look at these 12 Raspberry Pi projects that are available to 3D print.

Gaming Projects for the Raspberry Pi

The PiGrrl Nintendo Game Boy Clone

Perhaps one of the most popular uses for a Raspberry Pi is as a retro gaming center and this project takes the idea one step further, focusing the emulation on a single platform and building a suitable case.
The PiGrrl is, of course, a Nintendo Game Boy clone, developed by LadyAda, and you can find the full set of instructions on the Adafruit website, which also includes links to any additional hardware you’ll require. This build uses a cannibalized Nintendo game controller, but there are alternatives to this. We’re particularly impressed by the quality of the 3D printed Game Boy-esque case.

The Super Game Pi, Game Boy Advance Clone

Still in clone territory, Adafruit has also produced instructions for what they call a Super Game Pi, which is essentially a clone of 2001’s Game Boy Advance handheld.
The 3D printer file contains more buttons than the PiGrrl, but again relies on a cannibalized SNES controller. Just as fun as the PiGrrl, this has a larger screen, too.

Gameboy Nano

Another great gaming 3D printer project for your Raspberry Pi, this relies on the Pi Zero, and the design can be downloaded from Thingverse.
While no formal details for this build are available online, it seems to require a small display and a compact controller, although you may prefer to simply add a dummy set of controls and connect a USB or Bluetooth controller to the Pi Zero, as the USB port is left open for this build.

Google Glass with Your Raspberry Pi

Want to get every fact and figure about every location you visit? Google Glass may have taken a back seat for now, but it is a project that can be put together with a Raspberry Pi as the brain, with a 3D printer providing a home for the display, complete with clamp to hook it to your glasses!
The file to 3D print your own Google Class replica can be found at Thingiverse, while the display is probably the most important component, cannibalized in this instance from a pair of immersive TV glasses.
We’re not saying you won’t get the same level of dismay and ridicule wearing these as you would with Google Glass, but it’s got to be worth a go!

Raspberry Pi Laptops

You may know that the Pi Top started life as a 3D printed laptop project for Raspberry Pi devices, before a successful Kickstarter campaign brought them commercial success – but it’s not the only Raspberry Pi laptop out there.

Mobile Pi-To-Go

Not as laptop-like as the Pi Top, the Pi-To-Go is nevertheless an impressive project, with a tiny fold down display and keyboard thanks to this project file from Thingiverse.
Take a look at it in action here.
The lower portion of the Pi-To-Go is full of batteries pulled from an old Dell Latitude D600 laptop battery, while behind the screen and the Pi is a 64 GB SSD card.
It looks like a great project to try out; see the full guide for details.

Raspberry Pi Desktop Cases

We’ve already told you how a Raspberry Pi can be used as a desktop computer, so it makes sense to build a desktop-style case for your little computer.

The PiBook

The PiBook (3D printed file) is a Raspberry Pi in desktop computer form, with a base unit and a display sat on top.
Despite the name, the PiBook doesn’t look like a book (if anything, it resembles an Apple Lisa), but it should still satiate your need to slot your Raspberry Pi into something you just printed.

3D Printed Raspberry Pi Tablets

Several Raspberry Pi tablet projects are in circulation. This one is from Adafruit, with the file ready to be downloaded to your 3D printer available from Thingverse.
The CAD-designed case houses a Raspberry Pi A+ and has a 3.5-inch TFT display. The example in the video may not have a touchscreen, but several TFT releases are available with capacitive overlays.
For a more standard Raspberry Pi tablet, of a decent, usable size, this next Adafruit project uses a Pi 2 (or perhaps a Pi 3) and you can download the 3D printed case file from Thingverse.

Awesome 3D Printed Raspberry Pi Cases

Finally, we’re going to take a look at some of the excellent Raspberry Pi cases that can be 3D printed. This is a massive area, so feel free to go off and look for some that you think will suit your project or mood. Along the way, you might spot some of these…

RetroNintastic

This superb Raspberry Pi case is clearly inspired by the classic Nintendo Entertainment System, and even features a door providing access to the Pi’s SD card, right where the cartridge slot would be.
Here’s what it looks like in action!
Not bad, we think you’ll agree. For more retro love, also see the Amiga 3000 case and PiStation One, and perhaps consider teaming these up with the RetroPie gaming distro.

It Had to Happen: A Raspberry PIE

We’re certain that you’ll already be drooling over this delicious looking 3D printed Raspberry Pi case, which is, of course, a literal interpretation (well, almost) of the device name.
muo-diy-raspberrypi3dprint-pie
Yum.
Want an absolutely literal interpretation? Think 3.1416

Raspberries Everywhere

While we’re talking “literal interpretations” we could drop the “pi” and focus on the “raspberry”. The Very Berry Pi Case 3000 is one of the most stunning Raspberry Pi cases we’ve seen, and while bigger than most has enough space for cables and cards to be inserted.
muo-diy-raspberrypi3dprint-berry

Fallout-Style Pip-Boy Wearable Pi Case

While a big job for 3D printing, this project — which will also require a portable power solution for your Raspberry Pi – looks superb, and if you’re a Fallout fan or simply want to take your Pi with you everywhere you go, this would seem to be the ultimate case. Make sure you include a touchscreen display, however!
muo-diy-raspberrypi3dprint-pipboy
For more videogame-inspired fun, see this Halo case.

Raspberry Pi 3D Printed Case Compatibility

While we’re on the subject of Raspberry Pi 3D printed cases, it’s worth considering that differences between the various models mean that not all cases will be suitable. As such, when considering a Raspberry Pi case for your 3D printer, examine whether the case matches the port and LED locations of your Pi.
The Raspberry Pi and 3D printed projects go together like raspberries and cream, and as you’ll have seen, the possibilities are considerable. Have you used a 3D printer in one of your Raspberry Pi projects? Perhaps you have a 3D printed case? Tell us all about it in the comments, and share your favorite projects.
