    Apple to release first ARM Mac without Intel processor in next 18 months

    Apple's file systems suck, HFS/HFS+ is the only thing worse than NTFS and APFS performs terribly on mechanical spinners, the kind of 5400RPM spinners fitted to most desktop Mac models bought by the consumer as that's all they can afford due to the over inflated pricing. Furthermore, with all...

    Windows 10: Why can't I disable Windows Defender?

    The article is click bait. The only reason malware detections on MacOS devices has risen is solely due to the fact that Apple owners have woken up to the fact that malware exists under MacOS and are suddenly actively checking for it - Most of that malware has probably been there for years...

    Win 10 Pro How to disable Log in password or PIN on boot up?

    The problem with this is: If the individual has chosen to enable 'Folder Protection' chances are there's very little of the person's files stored locally on their PC, One Drive attempts to mimic iCloud on Apple devices (which also sucks profusely), and takes it upon itself to shift files and...

    What to do with old 10/100 switches?

    I still use a 10/100 switch, it even streams raw 1080p from network storage and streamed 4k video just fine. I'd upgrade, I've just seen no reason to.

    I also swear that third party AV is the cause of many Windows 10 failed updates.

    Is microsoft still giving free win 10 upgrade from Win 8 / win 7 after Dec. 31, 2017?

    The media shouldn't matter. I use mostly USB, however sometimes I have to use DVD in the case the device won't boot 'easily' of USB and it's just quicker to bung a disc in there, and the install options are identical.

    I was going to say, you need both as the runner will have customized settings/dependacies that the specific title needs in order to run..

    Win 10 Pro How to disable Log in password or PIN on boot up?

    You can install without an account, there's an obscure 'Apps Only' link in the requester. Yes, that's literally all it says...."Apps Only", the link isn't even mentioned in the same context as the Microsoft account and makes no reference to it. Tell me that's not underhanded. The average inept...

    Win 10 Pro How to disable Log in password or PIN on boot up?

    When you connect to the internet for the first time after install Microsoft still sneakily try to convince the end user to set up a Microsoft account, thing is they don't specifically state it's a Microsoft account - Which is how end users end up so confused when they can't log in next boot as...

    Ubuntu + Win10 VM

    The problem is, when you have a problem and you're trying to evaluate whether the guest operating system is for you or not, what do you blame? The guest OS, the host OS or the UEFI implementation? It opens up a can of worms when it's actually easier just to bung another HDD into the system and...
