When I first upgraded to Windows 7 back in 2009, I was shocked. Microsoft had somehow recovered from the mediocrity of Windows Vista and built an operating system that felt like the natural progression from Windows XP. It was clean, it ran better and most importantly, it didn’t try to fix what wasn’t broken.
Then Windows 8 happened.
I was smart/fortunate enough to avoid Windows 8 altogether, but as a fan of new technology, I couldn’t help but feel a little left out. I wanted the latest and greatest, and now, nearly three years later, it has arrived in the form of Windows 10.
Yes, Jon Snow is dead, and many people know that already, including Game of Thrones fans who haven’t even seen the most recent episode of HBO’s tremendously popular TV series. And while there are many plausible fan theories that say he’ll be back, one HBO executive wants to remind you he’s oh so very dead. More →
Windows 10 is the much-needed upgrade that PC users have been waiting for ever since Microsoft promised it would fix its numerous blunders in Windows 8. But that doesn’t mean Windows 10 is perfect. In fact, there are plenty of issues that need correcting, and a Day One patch might fix some of them. On top of that, there are certain privacy issues you need to be aware of, and the fact that Windows 10 is spying on you by default.
On top of that, Windows 10 will also share your Wi-Fi passwords with others by default, but that can also be fixed relatively easily. More →
The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are both expected to come with support for Force Touch gestures, a brand new way of interacting with a device that was first seen in the Apple Watch, Retina MacBook and select MacBook Pro models. After Bloomberg said recently that both 2015 iPhones will get the new feature, a new report from Taiwan indicates that the components needed for this great new tech are already in mass production.

The phrase “once in a blue moon” is meant to describe something that’s very rare, although in reality blue moons happen once every three years or so. And actually, there’s nothing blue about a blue moon — rather, it’s a term used to describe the second time a full moon appears in a given month. The last time we had a blue moon was in 2012 and we’re not scheduled to get another one until 2018. More →
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 →

We’ve had a great run this week, and we’re finishing on a high note with nine solid paid iOS apps on sale for free.

Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible movies are always fun to watch. They might not win the Oscar for the best motion picture, but they’re packed with action, special effects and incredible stunts, including some crazy performances from the actual star of the show — check out one of Cruise’s stunts for Rogue Nation.
Fans of the franchise will probably be thrilled to hear that Tom Cruise has at least one more movie in the works, and it will premiere much sooner than you think. More →
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. However, all this changed when I finally did something that I should have done a long, long time ago: I disabled Adobe Flash on both computers. More →
Windows 10 is amazing. Windows 10 is fantastic. Windows 10 is glorious. Windows 10 is faster, smoother and more user-friendly than any Windows operating system that has come before it. Windows 10 is everything Windows 8 should have been, addressing nearly all of the major problems users had with Microsoft’s previous-generation platform in one fell swoop.
But there’s something you should know: As you read this article from your newly upgraded PC, Windows 10 is also spying on nearly everything you do. More →
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.
