ByJ. D. Biersdorfer May 17, 2018 Q. What is the difference between Disk Cleanup and Storage Sense to remove old files from Windows 10? A. Disk Cleanup is an older utility program that has been included with the operating system since the days of Windows 98. Until recently, the tool worked in Windows 10 much the same as it always did, scanning the drive and rounding up a list of all the unnecessary files and system detritus that you could delete with the click of a button. With a little extra work, Disk Cleanup could be set to run automatically, but some people chose to manually open and run the program when needed. As Windows 10 has evolved, Microsoft has automated some of the … [Read more...] about New Ways to Delete Old Files

OPERA USERS are reporting incidences of new tabs being opened without user authorisation on Windows 10 to display adverts for Microsoft's own Edge browser. Microsoft Edge, which is the standard for Windows 10 users, has been repeatedly overshadowed by Google Chrome, but it seems from Reddit that it is users of Opera that are being targeted, as spotted by Windows Report. Naturally, the accusations have stirred up tribalism amongst Windows vs Linux users, because, well, any excuse, with defenders saying that the original poster must have pressed something to make the screen come up. Specifically, the screen claims, amongst other things that Edge has a 99 per cent block rate for socially engineered malware against 87 per cent for Chrome and 70 per cent for Firefox. Notice anything? Yep. Opera isn't even used in the comparison which instantly makes alarm-bells ring with us. That said, as much as we'd love to say "Microsoft wouldn't do that would they?", we've been burned … [Read more...] about Opera users claim that Microsoft is opening new tabs to advertise Edge

Blackberry itself wanting to release the phone under a different name because of its bad reputation? "Bad taste in the mouths of the cellphone buying public"? How bizzar...they just COULDN'T be talking about the Storm. NO WAY. TRAGIC! It's just TOO BAD though because with Verizons AMAZING service and FLAWLESS coverage its distressing to know that this PERFECT carrier has a phone that has such a bad reputation. Good thing that Verizon customers are intelligent and didn't get this phone the first time around. posted on 08 Apr 2009, 10:59 0 3.

There has always been the argument that some things are easier done the old fashioned way. We've heard about ordering food online, and some of the issues users have experienced doing it. It's now the same with calling a taxi - there are new ways to do it, but how way do they work? We took the Taxi Magic app and decided to put it to the test and see how it compares to calling the cab company or simply throwing up your hand to hail a taxi.First, let's talk about Taxi Magic. It's more than just a method to hail a cab. The app opens to detect the user's location, then suggests taxi companies available based on location. It then allows the user to electronically call the taxi via the internet through the app, or it will provide a phone number to call the cab company directly. If electronic booking is available, it will book the taxi, and give updates as to where the cab is as it's on the way to pick up the customer. Once the customer is in the cab, it allows the rider to pay for the ride … [Read more...] about Taxi Magic app is a new way to hail a cab, but how well does it work?
