RemixOS is an Operating System designed to bridge the gap between Android and Desktop. While there are many ways that this happen on a Windows PC, such as "Windroy" or "Bluestacks", RemixOS provides multitasking within the Operating System. As this is a complete OS, you would normally need to either create your own Virtual Machine, dual-boot your system, or find compatible hardware to run it. Fortunately, the folks at Jide have...

If you've heard of "apt-get" for Linux, you'll know how simple it is to install a program and its dependencies without the need for clicking "Next next" or downloading a bunch of files to get the thing to run. Chocolatey bridges the gap between that functionality and the Windows Command Prompt, by allowing simple commands to install and upgrade software from a repository. For example, if you want to install Winrar it's simply:...

A man has been filmed in an electrical store late September in St Austell, Cornwall UK, checking out some high-value televisions, including "a curved Samsung OLED and two Panasonics": [See full post for video] Unfortunately, a TV takes a tumble, taking out the one behind it, where the man moves back, and takes out the two televisions behind him. The Description of the video states that the damage was made to over £5000 (~$6100) worth of equipment. While comments have been disabled for this particular video, some commenters on related videos & sites have suggested that the situation was staged, or that the customer intentionally damaged the TVs. It doesn't appear obvious what happens when the gentleman kneels up to the TV, perhaps checking the weight or testing the strength of the stand? ...

While all the pressure is on Samsung with the Galaxy Note 7 debacle, here's something you may not know about the company: Samsung released a keyboard phone back in 2010. It's name? "Samsung : )" That's not a typo, there are no missing words, that's the "name", though many coin it the "Samsung smiley" or the "Samsung smiley face" or the codename "Samsung T359". The phone itself is nothing special, with the following specs:
  • 184 Mhz CPU
  • 50MB Internal Memory
  • 1.3MP Camera
  • 240x320 pixel display
  • 1000mah Battery
Needless to say the phone didn't end up very popular and is now discontinued, probably because nobody could identify it!
