Don’t save Mozilla

Psy-Q wrote about donating to Mozilla to prevent them from being mostly reliant on Yahoo! for funding. His post titled, “To defend the free web, you must save Mozilla“, suggests that large companies as well as individuals should donate more money so that Mozilla doesn’t go the way of the dodo. He makes some good … Read more

Sweeten the deal with OneDrive, Microsoft

Earlier this month Microsoft announced it was cutting their 15GB of free storage on OneDrive down to 5GB, in what seems to be a move to push people to pay $10 a month for Office 365+1TB of OneDrive space (which isn’t too bad of a deal, but still stupid). I’m mad about the free storage reduction, but … Read more

The magic of Reading View

Microsoft Edge comes with a new Reading View feature which is designed to remove excess content from a page and just give you the article and the images within the article in a much more readable and less distracting format. Other browsers have this feature too (Chrome’s is hidden behind a flag) and a lot … Read more

Experimentalis

I posted recently about what was holding me back from going “full Microsoft”. Those conditions still apply, but recently I’ve discovered how easy it is to drop them or avoid the issues altogether. I bought a Lumia 640 at Best Buy for $60 and I’m really liking it. It doesn’t have Windows 10 yet but … Read more

Here’s what I’m looking to do: … Read more

Forgot to turn off my computer for a month

I’ve got multiple projects going on lately, and none of them are finished. So instead of turning off my computer, I’ve just been putting it into sleep mode or hibernation. The result? Almost 30 days of uptime, and no issues whatsoever. Windows 10 is awesome. I’ve been making full use of Windows 10’s multiple desktops … Read more

Mozilla whines about defaults in Windows 10

Chris Beard at Mozilla writes, When we first saw the Windows 10 upgrade experience that strips users of their choice by effectively overriding existing user preferences for the Web browser and other apps, we reached out to your team to discuss this issue. Unfortunately, it didn’t result in any meaningful progress, hence this letter. We … Read more

iVerge gets rekt

Les Orchard writes, So, I’ve been a big fan of The Verge, almost since day one. It’s a gorgeous site and the content is great. They’ve done some amazing things with longform articles like “What’s the deal with translating Seinfeld” and “Max Headroom: the definitive history of the 1980s digital icon”, and the daily news … Read more

Google Play Music All Access

Man, that’s a long name. Google really needs to shorten that. Anyway, I’ve been using Google Music (this is what I will refer to GPMAA as) for the past month. I’m writing this as a short rambling review but don’t call it a review kind of thing. In August I will be working really hard … Read more
