8 Really Geeky But Creative Ways To Use QR Codes At Home

The plain-Jane QR code had a hi-tech beginning – Toyota used them in their manufacturing process for scanning automobile components. From there, QR codes have made the journey to even fashion ramps. That demonstrates their popularity, but not quite their usefulness. With a bit of thought, QR codes can be used in fun and useful ways around the house too. Here are a few I put together

And that, my friends, is where SurfEasy’s Private Browser comes in.

How To Remove Ads From Native Windows 8 Apps

In-app adverts have become a bit of a problem for Windows 8 users, particularly for those native Microsoft apps that you’ve already paid for. With third party apps you get the option of upgrading to remove the ads; this isn’t the case with apps like Bing News. Ads can be distracting and disruptive, and when found within apps that you’ve already paid for, their presence can become pretty galling. Fortunately, there is a very good chance that you are able to remove the adverts from native Microsoft apps.

Plants vs. Zombies 2: Does Going Free-To-Play Mean The Death Of The Series?

Plants vs. Zombies 2: Does Going Free-To-Play Mean The Death Of The Series?

Since EA has taken the reigns at PopCap, Plants vs. Zombies 2 has been released for free. By free I am referring to the game being free to download initially, with plenty of in-app purchases to keep the money flowing in. This is a delicate issue but it’s usually something that happens with new games, not established franchises. Seeing it happen to Plants vs. Zombies 2 is a big shock, and it leads to the ultimate question: did EA make a mistake, or is going free-to-play the smartest move for the franchise?

Did You Know You Can Make Your Own Chromecast For Free?

A brand-new shiny Chromecast may only be $35, but what if you can’t easily get one in your area? Lucky for you, a free app called CheapCast has hit the Play Store that can use your Android device to emulate a Chromecast dongle. With the app running in the background, any other Android device can send YouTube videos to the device running CheapCast. It’s still in an early beta phase, so streaming for apps like Netflix still isn’t supported, and you can’t stream entire Chrome tabs from your PC, but the potential for this app is incredible.
