Here’s When a Dark Theme Can Save Battery Power

Dark themes are becoming more and more popular. On some devices, they can even save battery power. It all depends on what type of display your device have—only devices with OLED displays can reap the power-saving benefits. Devices With OLED Displays Only You’ve probably heard of OLED displays, especially if you’ve been on the market for a new TV in the last year or so. OLED screens differ from LCD and LED displays typically found in electronics in that OLEDs don’t have a backlight layer: each...

How to Pack Your Electronics for Air Travel

Elnur/Shutterstock 06Photo/Shutterstock Vacations prove to be a great opportunity to use your electronics away from home. But just this year, the US government banned lithium-ion batteries from checked bags. So, just how are you supposed to pack that laptop? This isn’t just a question of TSA compliance; this is a question of convenience. If you plan to bring a bunch of large electronics on your next vacation, you need to be able to organize them in your carry-on bag. Otherwise, your flight...

Otherwise, Microsoft released Defender extensions for Chrome and Firefox, and a lot more.

Sync or Transfer CC settings and eBook Library from One Android Device to Another

I've been using wireless sync to download books to my Nexus 7 tablet, this is not the whole calibre library. I have now bought a Samsung TAB A and wish to get the same setup on the new device in as painless a manner as possible. At first I considered drop box and cloud connection but that seems to only be a poor substitute for the wireless connection to Calibre on my laptop and can't be used to sync state between multiple devices. Is there a way to use Google Drive or DROPBOX to at least copy...

Deal Alert: Grab a 10,000 mAh Samsung Power Bank and USB-C Cable for $16

Samsung You still haven’t bought a power bank? Well, Samsung is selling a 10,000 mAh power bank with a USB-C cable at a 54 percent discount, so now’s the time to take the plunge. Most 10,000 mAh power banks run for around $25.

New Blu-ray Releases: ‘Creed II’, ‘The Favourite’, ‘The Craft’, ‘Burning’, ‘Skinner’, ‘The Standoff at Sparrow Creek’, ‘Between Worlds’

Last month, Samsung announced they would no longer produce Blu-ray players. It gave physical media fans – like me, and presumably you, if you’re reading this column – pause. The reasoning could be because Samsung’s 4K technology has been subpar in compared to others. Or it could spell the beginning of the end – a sign that Blu-ray will soon go the way of VHS. It’s not a pleasant thought. For now, Blu-ray is here, and I can only hope it’s here to stay. For now, let’s treasure it while it’s still...

‘Zucked’ shows how a mentor of Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg is now one of the social network’s biggest critics

As a tech venture capitalist and early mentor of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, Roger McNamee might be the least likely prophet to wander out of Silicon Valley with warnings of the dangers posed by the social network to those who use it. But that’s exactly where McNamee finds himself today, three years after he first started to seriously worry that Facebook, in its galloping growth to more than 2 billion users – and a current value of more than $400 billion – had gone astray in ways that thre...

What is an APN, and How Do I Change it on my Android Phone?

Android gives users a whole lot of customization options, some of which are useful for everyone, while others are just for power users. One of these lower level settings is the Access Point Name—better known as the APN. The APN is something most users won’t need to worry about. You pop your SIM card into your phone, maybe reboot it, and it connects to your carrier’s network. You’ll be able to make calls, send messages, browse dank memes, and other important things. But, if you still mess around...

What Are NVMe Drives, and Should You Buy One?

Samsung The biggest upgrade you can make to your old PC is faster storage. Other components like the CPU and GPU have certainly improved in the last decade, but everyone will appreciate faster storage. NVMe is the latest and greatest storage interface for laptops and desktops, and it offers much faster read and write speeds than older interfaces. This comes at a cost, so depending on what you use the computer for, buying an NVMe drive may not make sense. What Are NVMe Drives? Non-Volatil...

Samsung is Bloating Everything with McAfee—Even Smart TVs

Samsung has a long-running relationship with McAfee. And while it’s bad enough that it bundles this nigh-useless junk on its computers, it’s “extending” this partnership to the S10 and all 2019 Smart TVs. Of course, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen Samsung throw McAfee on Galaxy smartphones, as it shipped the S8 with the antivirus app installed too. Then Samsung later brought it to previous Galaxy devices with an update, which is honestly just disgusting. Make no mistake here: McAfee is pay...

At Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, the company is introducing three phone designs.

Samsung: All Galaxy S10 and S10+ Phones Have 8 GB of RAM or More

Samsung As smartphones get more powerful and run more and more complex applications, phone memory gets more important. To that end, Samsung wants it known that if you buy a Galaxy S10 or S10+, you’ll get at least 8 GB of RAM. The company said as much to Android Police when asked about the RAM situation on the new models. Apparently, some of the pre-release demonstration hardware showed “just” 6 GB when its specifications were checked in the Settings menu, causing confusion among the enthusi...
