Become a Wolfram Alpha Expert With These Useful Search Techniques

Wolfram Alpha. For anyone that has never used it or heard of it, it sounds like the name of one of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. For people familiar with it, it’s like having access to that magical hand-held device Dr. Sam Beckett had in the popular TV show Quantum Leap, that was linked to the computer known as Ziggy. In fact, it’s almost identical to Ziggy. In the show, Ziggy was ultra-specific to the point of being too literal at times.

HP TouchPad Not Charging? Don’t Worry, It’s Probably Not Bricked!

The HP TouchPad is a remarkable piece of kit. This tablet computer with its dual core CPU was released with a buggy version of the webOS operating system back in mid-2011 and failed to capture the imagination of app developers, leading to HP dropping the device within weeks of its launch. The ensuing firesale resulted in tablets being picked up brand new for under $100 on both sides of the Atlantic.

Do You Copy & Paste All Day? Manage The Windows Clipboard Better With The Portable ClipTrap

The clipboard is one of the invisible but most used features of our Windows computers. But satisfied with the way it handles any copy-paste operations, we let it be…rarely fiddling with it to change its default operation. Come to think of it, it is a bit strange because copy-paste operations take place throughout the day, almost as an unconscious behavior, and always repeatedly. It may make sense to use a clipboard manager which will at least cut the repetitions of CTRL+C and CTRL+V.
