The Three Things Google Stadia Needs to Conquer the Gaming Industry

Google Yesterday Google announced its long-anticipated streaming game platform, Stadia. In the news post we called it an “invasion” of gaming: this combination platform and delivery service has the potential to compete with consoles, PCs, and mobile games, all at once. Google’s ambition is huge, but it’s appropriate to the task. The game industry as we know it is stagnating in terms of innovation, but its biggest corporate players are well-entrenched and experienced. If Stadia is to compet...

How to Change the Default Search Engine in Safari on iPhone or iPad

Safari uses Google as its default search engine out of the box, but it’s not the only option. You can choose other search engines like Bing, Yahoo, or DuckDuckGo if you prefer them.

How to Enable Remaining Battery Time in Windows 10

The Best Free Dropbox Alternatives (For More Than 3 Devices)

Converting Footnotes by Section

Hello, I am looking for a way to convert footnotes by section in a word document using Calibre. Basically, my Microsoft Word document has footnotes by section.

I considered using separate documents for each section, however, my sections do not begin with heading 1. Thanks.

How to Remap any Controller to Keyboard Keys on Windows and MacOS

You can remap your controller buttons to keyboard key presses to get around this limitation.
