iOS 14 brings many advantages, and as one my previous articles points out, some surprises! As a friend noted, here’s a new one sneaking in through the privacy filters…
Apple have introduced a “Precise Location” switch to all apps where location is used, meaning that there are two potential locations being sent to an app, depending on the switch.… Continue Reading
You’re not on your own. #sigh.
Apple have introduced a security-anti-tracking system with all the best intentions, however in doing so broke every existing connection to secure wifi networks where MAC address access is enforced.
In non-geek – every device has a unique code (mac), and in some cases it’s taken into account as part of authentication when connecting to a network with a usual username / password / token.… Continue Reading
Lies, it’s all lies. The articles out there make it out to be hyper-complex – it ain’t, it’s VERY simple, but there are zero articles which point out this path – the articles (which shall not be named), all point in the direction of the LEGO stack (Let’s Encrypt), which whilst free is a pain in the arse to understand without even trying to comprehend actually doing it.… Continue Reading
Looking at the pic to the right of the inside of a new PC. What’s wrong I hear you ask? Cable routing – some kind person has routed all the cables through the 5.25″ drive bays, rendering them useless. They’ve even routed the front connector cables for the case via the bottom of the drive bays.… Continue Reading
Around a couple of weeks ago, I had a moment – the moment was a realisation that I was hooked on something, and just like any addict, I just couldn’t leave it alone. Now I’m not your typical person in regard to addiction – I can stop and start both alcohol and nicotine on a dime, as the Americans would say.… Continue Reading
Before we begin, I will say that I love OneDrive.
Towards the end of last year I was getting a little tired of Google Drive (Which is now called something else… Baby, I just dont’t care), so decided to give OneDrive another go. A long time ago OneDrive was pure shite, wouldn’t even trust it with a backup of a single meme – WoW – how wrong was I – I tried it again and it was the unicorn of the file storage solution I’d been looking for.… Continue Reading
With my previous article on How to remove the metadata title from MKV files I discussed methods for using a simple batch file to process a folder, removing metadata from individual files, plus an option to do this recursively; this got me thinking how great it would be to add that to the right-click menu for Windows folders.… Continue Reading
Not all files are equal – in the case of regular files, for example .jpg and .mp4 files, you can simply right click in Windows, select Properties, and happily click away at the Details Tab, then “Remove Properties and Personal Information” – provided you have the right permissions, it’ll all work fine.… Continue Reading
These are little tips I’ve picked up over time when using my iPhone, features that are, in some cases, just not publicised during the iOS upgrade & launch.… Continue Reading
This is concerning an extremely troubling phishing attack vector for the Firefox browser (Also impacts Chrome), which could leave you wide open to handing over login details to virtually any site, yes even those sites with the little green padlock (Which is supposed to be a sign of security).… Continue Reading
Found this one drifting around the interwebs – so true!
I fix a lot of computer problems, it’s a part of my daily life, my occupation, job etc… Sometimes it’s the really simple things which trip you up – it’s a problem in my profession where we tend to sometimes skip the really simple steps of problem solving and go straight for the solution, assuming (The mother of all fuckups) that the simple things are all OK.… Continue Reading
Do you still use WinAmp?
Do you have a load of favoured, lovingly built .m3u playlists?
Would you like the files copied to another folder, without having do them manually one by one, to play on another device?
If the answer to all of the above is yes (This means you’re old!),… Continue Reading
