successfully installed Google Play Books

We all know that Nook Glowlight 3 is android 4.4.2 based, and many of us have installed various apps on it. I was wondering whether it's possible to install Google Play Books. Since I have purchased many books using Play Books, but I don't like to read on phone or tablet. Therefore I have spent some time to figure out how to do it. The steps are as follows: 1. install TWRP by Ryogo 2. install gapps, I use open gapps arm 4.4 pico version, this version contains Google Play Store 3. Sign in wi...

Cortana Is Leaving Windows 10’s Search Bar, But Bing Stays

In the upcoming release of Windows 10, codenamed 19H1, Cortana and the search bar are breaking up and moving into separate houses. Unfortunately, the search bar won custody of Bing. Windows 10 19H1 is expected for release around April 2019. The separation was announced by Microsoft in a blog post unveiling Windows Insider build 18317. All jesting aside, the deep integration of Search and Cortana is one of the biggest complaints about Windows 10. We’ve taken time to show you how to hide and disa...

The Motorola Razr Might be Making a Comeback…As a $1500 Foldable

Man, you guys remember the Motorola Razr? Thing was hot back in the day—all the cool kids had them. Well, good news: it may be coming back as a modern smartphone. Again. According to a recent report from The Wall Street Journal, Lenovo (which bought Motorola from Google back in 2014) is planning to partner with Verizon to re-release a phone with the beloved Razr namesake. The downside? It’s going to be a $1500 foldable. Fifteen. Hundred. Dollars. Oof. Of course, this isn’t the first time the Ra...

Another Blog on MANTS (It Takes Two)

Last week I got on a skinny little regional jet with four hefty Co-Horts from work, and with a screaming winter storm tailwind we arrived at BWI lickety split. Like the damned thing was the Concorde. Good thing. Even an hour on that plane next to my boss made an imprint of his credit card on my thigh. I would have used it to buy something online, but I know he’s at least as broke as I am. Back on the ground, we hit the ground running. MANTS is huge. Time is short. Welcome to MANTS. 956 ve...

AirPlay Is Coming to Smart TVs. Here’s How It Works

Smart TVs are now integrating Apple’s AirPlay 2 technology. That was one of the big stories of CES 2019, where many TV manufacturers simultaneously announced AirPlay was coming to their TVs. Some are even updating existing TVs with AirPlay. What Is AirPlay 2? Apple’s AirPlay 2 standard lets you use Apple devices to control media playback, stream audio, mirror your screen, or do other similar things. It’s built into Apple devices like the iPhone, iPad, and Mac. Think of it a bit like Apple’s v...

How to Set Up Filters for Your Google Home Devices

Google Home devices are a great way to get voice assistants, music, and possibly video throughout your home. But you might consider enabling Google Filters to exert some control over the content that children or guests can play. Filter Out the Bad Content for Everybody or Just the Children Once you have a voice assistant in multiple rooms, you’ll find yourself taking advantage of the easy access to music and videos. Unfortunately, voice assistants don’t truly understand you; they simply respo...

Verizon Is Testing Its Own Game Streaming Service, Because of Course It Is

2019 is the year of the streaming game…or at least the start of it. NVIDIA has been doing its thing with GeForce Now for a while, Google started testing Project Stream last year, and now Verizon wants in on the action. As reported by The Verge late last week, Verizon has been “quietly testing” its own game streaming service. Interestingly enough, the company is using the NVIDIA SHIELD—arguably one of the best streaming boxes you can buy—for its internal testing. The report also suggests that th...

All Books Flipped to Unread (Kobo H2O v2

Last night I went to My Books on my H2O v2 and all the books on it were now marked Unread even though there were probably 80 or 90 on it previously marked Read. Maybe it doesn't seem like a big thing but I know there are a lot of those books I won't necessarily remember reading and will have to start reading again to jog my memory. There are a couple hundred books on the Reader. Running latest firmware. At least 95% were from Kobo with the remainder sideloaded or from Google Play. Any though...

A New Edition of Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 That’s Only Readable When You Apply Heat to Its Pages: Pre-Order It Today

Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451, a novel of a nearly bookless dystopian future in which "firemen" go around burning any last volumes they can find, lends itself well to highly physical special editions. Last year we featured an asbestos-bound, fireproof version, 200 copies of which were published at the book's first printing in 1953. The year before we featured an experimental edition perhaps even more faithfully reflective of the story's premise, one whose all-black pages only reveal the ...

Proofreading Again

Proud of myself. First I managed to get the header and the page numbers on my manuscript. (It should be easy but I have to relearn this step every time.) In glancing through the pages, I discovered several lines of little square dots that will NOT disappear with a simple delete.  (Something that Word does occasionally for its own inscrutable reasons.) I've had this problem before and always left it to someone (copy editor) else to fix. As there is no someone else at this point, I asked...

Configuration for sending with gmail

First let me say, I can send email to my Kindle, or even my gmail account with no problems. However, a friend began having problems sending via his gmail account so I'm trying to help. I can't find any configuration for sending out email. I see a form in preferences - Sharing by email - but all fields are blank except port, which says 19. So, how does Calibre know how to send the email? Is that information all hidden? Normally, it would at least show some fields, with the password and per...

The Best Smarthome Products We Saw at CES 2019

Every year, CES is chock full of smarthome tech. So much so that there’s even an entire dedicated space on the show floor to just smarthome companies. Here are the best new smarthome devices we saw at CES this year. Voice Assistant Smart Switches Many new products we saw on the show floor weren’t necessarily “new” or revolutionary, but rather many companies have come out with their own versions from young product categories, and that includes smart switches with built-in voice assistants.

Marie Kondo v. Tsundoku: Competing Japanese Philosophies on Whether to Keep or Discard Unread Books

By now we've all heard of Marie Kondo, the Japanese home-organization guru whose book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up became an international bestseller in 2011. Her advice about how to straighten up the home, branded the "KonMari" method, has more recently landed her that brass ring of early 21st-century fame, her own Netflix series.

The Books That Samuel Beckett Read and Really Liked (1941-1956)

Samuel Beckett, Pic, 1" by Roger Pic. Via Wikimedia Commons Clad in a black turtleneck and with a shock of white hair, Samuel Beckett was a gaunt, gloomy high priest of modernism. After the 1955 premiere of Samuel Beckett’s play Waiting for Godot (watch him stage a performance here), Kenneth Tynan quipped, ''It has no plot, no climax, no denouement; no beginning, no middle and no end.'' From there, Beckett’s work only got more austere, bleak and despairing. His 1969 play Breath, for instance,...

How to Share Links to Your Google Doc as a PDF

Using Google Docs is a great way to collaborate on and share documents. Sometimes, though, you want to provide somebody with a PDF instead of an editable document.

Note: This process works for Google Docs and Google Sheets, but not Google Slides. Go ahead and open up the document you want to share. Once y...

Don’t Bother With USB-C Headphones (For Now)

The headphone jack is fast disappearing from high-end phones and even bigger devices like the new iPad Pro. So it’s time to head out and get a decent pair of USB-C headphones, right? Not so fast. Unlike the accommodating analog port that’s been around for decades, getting audio out of a USB-C port alone requires a little digital finagling. And that’s a problem, because digital formats are more complex, and all too often incompatible. While there are a few sets of headphones on the market w...

At CES 2019, Lenovo has introduced two new smarthome products: the Smart Clock with Google Assistant and the Smart Tab with Alexa.

Bill Gates, Book Critic, Names His Top 5 Books of 2018

Before we get too far into 2019, let's quickly recap the five books that made it to the top of Bill Gates' reading list in 2018. Over on his blog, Gates Notes, the Microsoft co-founder offers up these picks. He writes: Educated, by Tara Westover. Tara never went to school or visited a doctor until she left home at 17. I never thought I’d relate to a story about growing up in a Mormon survivalist household, but she’s such a good writer that she got me to reflect on my own life while readi...

TP-Link Unveils a Slew of New Kasa Devices, Including a Video Doorbell

The Largest J.R.R. Tolkien Exhibit in Generations Is Coming to the U.S.: Original Drawings, Manuscripts, Maps & More

"I first took on The Lord of the Rings at the age of eleven or twelve," writes The New Yorker's Anthony Lane. "It was, and remains, not a book that you happen to read, like any other, but a book that happens to you: a chunk bitten out of your life." The preteen years may remain the most opportune ones in which to pick up the work of J.R.R. Tolkien, but whatever the period in life at which they find their way in, most readers who make the journey through Middle-earth never really leave th...

Windows 10 Is Only Making Windows Fragmentation Worse

With Windows 10, Microsoft wanted to get every Windows user on the same platform. Now, the opposite is happening. Just 6.6% of Windows 10 PCs have the October 2018 Update over three months after its release. The Numbers These numbers come courtesy of AdDuplex, which tracks Windows update market share, as spotted by Bleeping Computer. In December 2018: 6.6% of Windows 10 PCs were running the October 2018 Update 83.6% were running the April 2018 Update 5.7% were running the Fall Creators Updat...

Through the Looking-Glass of Black Mirror's 'Bandersnatch'

None Spoilers ahead. In 1983 I played an arcade game called Dragon's Lair. In what was already a video-game cliché, a knight named Dirk the Daring attempted to rescue Princess Daphne. But the selling point was not the story—it was that it looked like a cartoon. Meanwhile, on my Atari back at home, the similarly-themed Adventure featured a protagonist who was literally just a dot. After losing a week's worth of quarters within a minute, though, I realized that Dragon's Lair was not really a game...
