Windows 10: How to remove all the tiles from your Start Menu and pretend Windows 8 never existed

Windows 10: How to remove all the tiles from your Start Menu and pretend Windows 8 never existed

By about 16 mins ago.

Windows 10 has done a fantastic job thus far of replacing the sour taste left in our mouths from Windows 8 with the sweet, sweet taste of software that’s actually intuitive and user-friendly. No longer is Microsoft attempting to cram a tablet interface down our throats on desktop and laptop computers, and that simple fact alone is likely enough to make most users happy with Windows 10. Of course, Microsoft didn’t stop there — here are some of the best new features you’ll find in Windows 10.

Of course, there are still some remnants of Windows 8 floating around in Microsoft’s new operating system, and in this post we’ll show you how to get rid of the biggest ones. More →

Tom Cruise: New ‘Mission: Impossible’ movie starts shooting next summer

Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible movies are always fun to watch.

Why Flash Needs To Die

I disabled Flash on my computer and I haven’t enjoyed the web this much in years

I disabled Flash on my computer and I haven’t enjoyed the web this much in years

By about 2 hours ago.

For the past several months, I’ve been unable to surf the web on my MacBook Air without having it sound like a rocket ship taking off. While things weren’t quite that bad on my Windows 8.1 desktop PC, I still had to deal with my fair share of slow loading times and Shockwave crashes that would regularly drive me up the wall.

Tesla Model S gets torched by a McLaren 650S in a drag race… and it’s not even close

When it comes to raw acceleration relative to price, you’d be hard pressed to come up with a car as impressive as the Tesla Model S P85D. With a push of a button, Tesla’s upper-tier model can go from 0-60 mph in just 3.2 seconds flat. Fittingly, Tesla calls this mode Insane Mode.

But as any physics student could tell you, acceleration and speed aren’t the same thing. So while the performance edition of the Model S is an absolute beast getting off the line, that doesn’t necessarily translate into being the most impressive car on the track, speed wise.
