Windows 8 features a pretty slick Mail app. If you thought it only supported Microsoft accounts, such as Hotmail, Windows Live, or Outlook, you were wrong. The Windows 8 Mail app lets you add any email account that supports IMAP. As it always is in life, the theory is beautiful, but in practice we run into all sorts of petty issues. That was me when I tried to set up the Windows 8 Mail app. This article will help you set up the Mail app and troubleshoot common pitfalls in case you get stuck.
Mounting gadgets to the wall has some key benefits; you get them out of the way, you free up space, and it looks better, too. There is an added benefit for wall mounting your wireless router; the right position, for example high up on your wall, can dramatically improve WiFi reception. Keep in mind that the average 1/2-wave dipole antenna radiates RF energy in a doughnut shape.
For the moment, Berlin is my adopted home. This is the Berlin, Germany’s old and new capital, a city of many controversies, world renowned for its eventful history, diverse art scene, and vibrant nightlife. I have spent many hours walking through the city, getting more familiar with it one step at a time. I wondered whether Google Earth could help me discover cool places I had not seen before. Join me as I explore my city in aerial and street views before heading out into the real world.
In this edition of Sound Sunday we return to classic genres, some with modern interpretations. All albums were carefully selected and put in sequence to create a listening experience. Join me on an audio trip around the world as you listen to artists from the US, Sweden, Denmark, Canada, Indonesia, and the UK. While all EPs and albums can be downloaded for free, we ask you to please donate a few dollars for music you enjoy!
When I grew up, my mom was self-employed and had her own home office with a large desk in the basement. Meanwhile my dad, who had a regular job, turned the broom closet into a tiny office for himself. It was the highlight of every house tour. Dad eventually joined the basement office, but the broom closet with its small corner desk remains the place where my parents store their paperwork until this day.
If you are tied to your desk or lack the natural draw to be outside, give nature a chance to brighten your day. She can help you relax as you experience her wonderfulness through the eyes and ears of others. Nature will stun you with her beauty! And who knows, you might be tempted to go outside and meet her in person after all.
Within only a few years, the smartphone has penetrated our lives and replaced other gadgets in a way that was never seen before. Likewise, smartphone cameras have become seriously useful. As the smartphone is slowly turning into an all-purpose tool, the camera adopts a large set of functions, which can be extremely handy in everyday life. Ready to find out the potential hidden within your smartphone camera?
Sound Sunday recently celebrated its jubilee. I remember how I first compiled an edition with EPs and albums, after featuring free songs only. I didn’t think there was enough free material to fill many more editions. More than three years down the road and I have hundreds of free music downloads in my archives and add dozens more every week. My bookmarks of material to feature could easily cover for half a year of Sound Sundays.
Are you the kind of person that covers their webcam with a sticker, so nobody can spy on them? Almost every device now is equipped with at least one camera. They make virtual meetings a little more personal. You can visually interact with the other person, read facial expressions, and thus better understand how they feel. This subtle information adds a lot of depth to conversations. But webcams can do a lot more than enhance virtual conversations. Few of us use their full potential for fun, convenience, and safety.
Network and computer names are visible to anyone within the respective environment. Hence they make great subjects for sending messages, confusing other people in the network, or showing off your geekiness. Why use a default SSID or follow a boring name convention, if you could have some fun? Ever since I bought my first laptop in 2003, I named my devices after a life goal or a geographical destination.
With this edition of Sound Sunday, I present you the transition from last week’s chiptune & video game music to different variations of the electronic genre, including classical and ambient music. It goes without saying that this edition covers a broad range of genres, despite what may seem like a narrow focus.
The Facebook cover photo crowns your Timeline. You can choose a stunning photograph and keep it simple or create an eye-catching composition. No place on Facebook is better suited to show off your creativity and express your personality than this. Don’t despair if you’re not a master of Photoshop. Facebook makes it easy.
It’s in the human nature to collect stuff and in the digital age we mostly collect data. For a long time, the storage capacities of hard drives seemed to increase too slow to match user demands. We have now reached a turning point. With the aid of generous free Cloud storage and streaming services, it seems like local data storage needs are peaking and will eventually level off.
Ever so often people ask us how they can merge two or more Facebook accounts . Now don’t get your hopes up! The truth is, it is not possible to merge Facebook accounts. However, there are workarounds. All it takes is a little preparation and patience.
Sound Sunday is often inspired by readers like yourself. The material for this edition was collected over several months, following the request of Luca in January this year. All of the albums demonstrate skill and passion for the chiptune genre. My personal highlight this week is Viking Guitar Productions’ expression of hard rock and metal with 8-bit music. It’s the chiptune flavor I can best identify with.
