3 Ways to Disable Windows 8 Gestures

Windows 8 is full of gestures and shortcuts. In addition to touch-screen gestures, there are swipe gestures you can perform with your laptop’s touchpad and mouse gestures that involve moving your cursor to the corners of the screen. However, there are ways to disable all of these gestures. This is particularly useful if these gestures get in your way while using your touchpad or mouse. You can even disable a Windows 8 device’s touch screen entirely — we don’t recommend it, but it’s something you can do if you want.

The End Is Nigh… The Last Pages Of The Internet

The Internet consists of at least 4 billion webpages, which, you’ll realize unless you have lost all sense of scale, is a vast collection of content. Not all of it is good content, obviously, and I suspect a fair percentage is pornography. Still, the Web is epic and only likely to grow even more epic from this moment forth. But wait! It turns out the Internet has an end.

Could This Be The Next Apple iPhone?

How realistic is this concept mockup of an edge-to-edge iPhone 6? If you look closely, you’ll find several elements currently present in iOS 7: the signal strength indicator, the font, the flat icons, even the App Store and Settings icons. And here’s the kicker, this mockup was published in March 2013, by JohnnyPlaid from CA, USA — several months before iOS 7 was even revealed to the public.

How To Backup Media, Apps & Settings On Windows Phone 8

I’ve just about filled the 32 GB internal storage on my Nokia Lumia 920. Initially, I was surprised that it only took me six months, until I realised that I’ve been recording videos in HD. When you consider everything that relies on internal storage, it certainly seems like a complete removal of personal storage is required. There are several options. Backing up data can be performed manually, using the Windows Phone Tool via USB and you can rely on native tools to back up your photos, apps, settings and messages.

Superpower Your MacBook Trackpad

Whether you want to use your trackpad as an improvised drawing tablet or control every aspect of your Mac using gestures, you can – if you know the right tools to use. Multi-touch means your trackpad knows precisely how many fingers are on its surface, and what they’re doing. A few default gestures take advantage of this – two-finger scrolling and pinch-to-zoom, for example – but there’s a lot more potential here. Let’s go over the many ways to get the most out of your Mac’s trackpad, shall we?

Spotify vs. Rdio: A Complete Comparison

Spotify vs. Rdio: A Complete Comparison

I recently cancelled my Spotify Premium membership after a year of uninterrupted monthly payments to the company. This decision came about when I accidentally signed up for 14-days of free Rdio Unlimited. Quite frankly, I was left confused as to who I should be paying money to and after playing with both services there’s a good chance you would be too. If you’re choosing to take the Netflix-style “all you can eat” route with your music, you’ve got quite a selection of services to choose from – but who reigns supreme?
