How to use Razor THX with Nvidia Shadowplay

Windows Update Stuck In Paused Mode After Updating to Windows 10 1809


Windows Blue Screen of Death


I have ran into an interesting issue on machines I recently upgraded from Windows 10 1803 to Windows 10 1809. As you may know, those on the "Semi-Annual Channel" upgrade path with Windows 10 Pro and greater, don't receive feature updates as quickly as most home users.

Why your iPhone or Android Phone isn't as secure as you think


Computer Code Picture

The internet is a different place than it was 10 years ago, or even 5 years ago. Social Media and sharing has become an even bigger part of our lives. This rise in social sharing has also paved the way for mobile devices such as cellphones, tablets, and even IOT(Internet of Things) devices.

Apps and IOT devices give us much easier access to information and services than computers in many cases. This is highlighted by devices such as the Amazon Alexia that will allow you to order products by simply telling it what to order.
