Ecovacs Deebot 901: Smart Vacuum, Broken App

Read the full review and enter to win a Deebot 901 for yourself here: https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/ecovacs-deebot-901/

Our verdict of the Ecovacs Deebot 901: 7/10 - This is one of the smartest mid-range vacuums around. The navigation, virtual boundaries and zoned cleaning are fantastic features. Unfortunately it's marred by a buggy app.

Buy the Debbot 901: https://aax-us-east.amazon-adsystem.com/x/c/QnickuWq7ZFUuz9PFmfOv64AAAFnoaPdnQEAAAFKAZ6VfIw/https://assoc-redirect.amazon.com/g/r/https://www.amazon.com/ECOVACS-Technology-Connected-Compatible-Assistant/dp/B078XZC2HM/?tag=mak041-20

Our verdict of the Xiaomi Roborock S50 - 9/10: Incredible navigation abilities allow for zoned cleaning, on top of being the most powerful vacuum you can buy at this budget. Alexa support now works for Europeans too. But consider if you might be better served by buying two cheaper devices instead.

Our verdict of the HiKam A7: 7/10 - Reliable email alerts, Alexa compatibility, ONVIF third party support, and reasonable image quality make this budget outdoor security camera a fully featured device at a fraction of the price. It's let down by an outdated user interface, and right now setting up Alexa is a bit kludgy.

Yi Smartphone Gimbal Review: Get Super Smooth Video from Your Phone

Read our full review at https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/yi-smartphone-gimbal/

Our verdict of the Yi Smartphone Gimbal: 7/10 - Makes silky smooth smartphone video accessible to all, but the offering is a bit barebones with no case included. If you can find it on sale for under $100, it's a good entry point, but spend a little more and there are more feature packed devices on offer.

Full article and. all links can be found at https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/play-pokemon-emulate-games-iphone-ipad/

There’s no denying that Pokemon GO has given Nintendo’s franchise a new lease of life, bringing new fans on board and rekindling a love many once had for the Game Boy smash hit first released in 1996. Luckily it’s not the only way you can play Pokemon on your iPhone.

Nintendo hasn’t released any classic or recent Pokemon games on the App Store, so you’ll have to turn to emulation to get the job done. With one exception, the easiest way to do this is to pay a small fee and install apps from a service called Build Store.

Best of all you don’t need to jailbreak your device to do this.

5 Default Windows Apps You Should Replace Now

Read the accompanying article with links to all the software mentioned at https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/replace-default-windows-software-programs/

Windows comes with a lot of software pre-installed. While many of its features aren't appreciated enough, some Windows apps that are simply inferior to other tools.

Let's look at the best software to replace Windows' default offerings. While many third-party tools offer only slight improvements over a Windows app, these five blow away the stock offerings in every way and are must-haves.

Stop Any Android App from Using Mobile Data

The vast majority of mobile phone plans out there these days don't offer unlimited data. That means most of us have to keep tabs on how much we're using each month.

Some apps thrive off a constant Internet connection -- even when they're seemingly not in use. Fortunately Android provides a way to prevent any app from sucking data in the background, and there are third-party apps out there that can take things to the next level.

Accompanying article can be found at https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/windows-stop-code-memory-management-bsod/

Windows 10 throws up a dazzling array of error messages and stop codes when things go wrong. When a blue screen of death (BSOD) error hits, you can use the Windows stop code to pinpoint and fix the issue.

At times, stop codes issue for very specific errors. At other times, you might have to work through a range of Windows 10 fixes. The Windows 10 “Memory Management” stop code involves the latter.

How to Edit Photoshop Files Anywhere Without Photoshop!

If you're on the go, using someone else's computer, or don't have Photoshop or GIMP on your computer, there's not much you can do with a PSD file. Luckily, some online tools make it possible to edit PSD files without the usual tools on hand.

Photopea is one of the easiest tools for doing just that. While it's certainly no replacement for Photoshop, it's a tool that comes in handy in a pinch.

Headless Raspberry Pi Setup, with Wi-Fi and VNC Server

Today, we'll be setting up a Raspberry Pi to use without a keybaord, mouse or monitor (aka, "headless"). We'll add Wi-Fi credentials (skip that bit if you're using an Ethernet cable), and install a TightVNC server, so you can still use the Raspberry Pi's desktop environment remotely.

How to Install Fortnite on Android

Prefer to read these instructions? https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/install-fortnite-android/

The world’s most popular 100-player PVP battle royale is coming to Android at long last. That’s right: you can finally play Fortnite on your Android device. Time to rejoice, grab your mats, and get ready to ride the storm.

That is until you realize that Fortnite isn’t available on the official Google Play Store. Fortnite developer, Epic Games, wants you to use a specialized launcher, but that means turning off third-party download restrictions and sideloading the app—and this can come with risks.

How to remove background noise with audacity

Read the full guide at https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/remove-ambient-noise-audio-files-audacity/

You've pressed stop and saved your project. Perhaps you've got some more tracks to add, or you're ready to start editing. Either way, there's something you need to do first.

It happens every time, regardless of the microphone quality. There, in the background, as you review the audio, you hear it: a hiss. Perhaps it's a regular tapping, a bird squawking, or just a general ambient noise.

How to Remove Built-In Apps from Windows 10

Read this guide and more at https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/easily-remove-bloatware-windows-10/

Bloatware is truly awful. Manufacturers fill your shiny new laptop, phone, or tablet with pre-installed applications to put an extra dollar in their pocket, leaving you a bundle of oft-useless programs taking up space. If it is annoying on laptops with large storage drives, it is downright infuriating finding out your 32GB phone storage is 25% full at purchase.

It is wrong, and we've seen some pretty appalling examples of bloatware this year; Lenovo's SuperFish debacle springs to mind. Unfortunately, Microsoft is no saint, either. If you've upgraded to Windows 10 you may have noted a number of new applications appearing on your system, seemingly without your permission. Let's look at how to ease the pressure on that awful bloating.

Speed Up Chrome By Enabling These Flags

Read this guide instead at https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/speed-up-chrome-by-changing-these-8-flags/

Chrome might be the most popular Internet browser in the world, but it also comes in for a fair amount of criticism.

One such criticism is that the software is no longer as fast as it used to be; people claim it's now a memory hog that has gotten bogged down with too many features and extensions.

While that argument does have some merit, it is still possible to greatly improve your browser's speed simply by tweaking some of its "flags". Here are the eight best tweaks that you can make today.

How to Run Dreamcast Emulation on a Raspberry Pi

Video game emulation of retro platforms just won’t go away. With so many different emulators available, it’s possible to play pretty much any classic game on any device now. You might like to run emulators on your phone or tablet, or even on a games console or PC.

Or even a Raspberry Pi. We’ve previously shown how RetroPie can be used to create a retro “gamestation”, and how RecalBox delivers a polished console-like retro gaming experience.

But RecalBox has a problem: it can’t currently run game ROMs for the Sega Dreamcast. So, how can you get Dreamcast games running on your Raspberry Pi?

Tech Geeks Try Stuff

TECH GEEKS TRY STUFF: Weird German Foods - Pickled fish for breakfast, blood spread with bits?

Four tech geeks brave some of the weirdest German foods.

Featuring rollmops (pickled herring) which nearly killed Jackson, liverwurst, blood sausages (they were actually just a paste, but yuck), Waldmeister (a green poisonous drink), and SUPER DICKMANN'S. Yeah, we definitely tasted some weird German foods.

If you're brave enough, these are certainly some of the weirdest German foods to try.

Tech geeks are typically found at a desk. In an office. Behind a cubicle.

You know - to see what's out there. We literally bit off more than we could chew.

So we tried 2x korean fire noodles - and honestly, it wasn't a proper challenge because we split 2 packets among 5 of us (yeah we were in Berlin and fire noodles was in short supply). Still, 8,800 Scoville. Yeah. Also, we tried Jackson's potential cure for spiciness - you guessed it - chocolate. Did it work? Ask Joel.

These were quick Indian snacks that they would have at tea time, so Indian tea time snacks like wafers, sing bhajiya, chakli, and farsan (which is similar to Bombay Mix).

And they were delicious!

What exactly are musk sticks? Nevermind that, in this video, we'll tastes some of the finest and weirdest foods Australia has to offer. Some of them are actually pretty amazing (like Tim Tam and Kit Kat) - but we can't say the same for Vegemite.

Tech geeks are typically found at a desk. In an office. Behind a cubicle. So when we got the chance to meet up in Berlin for IFA, we thought it might be a good idea to get together and try a bunch of the weirdest snacks from around the world. You know - to see what's out there. We literally bit off more than we could chew.

(Apologies for the video quality - we had to record at night, so lighting wasn't the best.)

TECH GEEKS TRY STUFF: Weird Canadian Snacks - SOAP FLAVOUR CHEWING GUM, SMOKED SALMON CANDY?!

It's true! We ate all that.

Again, Tina spoilt us with some really great snacks (see our weird German food video if you wanna know what I'm talking about https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DeMOWPtTL80).

This time, we tried some weird Canadian snacks featuring ketchup chips from Lays and Old Dutch, all dressed Ruffles (which I still maintain are the last crisps they make at the end of the day to clean out the machines), what turned out to be cat food, but at least there was a saving grace: Jos Louis. Ah, lovely chocolate covered velvet cake.

Have you tried any of these weird Canadian snacks? Let us know in the comments.

GEEKS TRY WEIRD US & KOREAN SNACKS: TWINKIES! SLIM JIM! DORITOS!

What's in a Slim Jim? Do Hostess Twinkies expire?

In this week's episode of Tech Geeks Try Stuff, Joel takes us on a journey of weird US snacks, starting with the unmistakeable Slim Jims. Is it a jerky? Is it beef? Who knows?! Then we feast on the cream-filled joy of Twinkies. Next up is Joel's favourite flavour of Doritos - Spicy Sweet Chilli (which was a winner - that's the best Doritos flavour we have ever tasted).

Then we moved on to Korean snacks, and boy was it a lovely surprise! From Lotte's Custard Cream Cakes to shrimp crackers and Janggu (honey dipped snacks), they were the tastiest Korean snacks we've had. What a treat!
