Using Your Home Office to Compete with Brick and Mortar Stores

When you’re first beginning in the computer repair business, you usually start from a home office. If your town already has a brick and mortar computer repair store, you first thought would be that you are at a competitive disadvantage. They have the big shop that everyone sees. Don’t worry …

Dealing With Clients Who Didn’t Listen to You

It’s happened to me a few times, I’m sure it’s happened to you. You offer technical advice to a client, perhaps a recommendation to upgrade their machine, to install anti-virus, to avoid nefarious websites, or to discard and not open suspicious emails. Whatever the situation, they didn’t listen, or they …

Ikea's newest furniture can charge your phone wirelessly

Ikea is literally supercharging its furniture. The Swedish purveyor of do-it-yourself home decor says its debuting a new line of desks, lamps, and tables that will be able to wirelessly charge your phone or tablet.

The furniture will use the Qi wireless charging standard, which is one of the main competitors in the wireless charging landscape. The Power Matters Alliance (PMA) is another key player, which has its technology in stores like Starbucks and McDonalds. Theres also the Alliance for Wireless Power (A4WP), which is expected to merge with the PWA later this year, hopefully paring down the fragmentation to two options.

T-Mobile wants to crash the Wi-Fi party to solve coverage problems

T-Mobile is moving forward with plans to offer LTE over unlicensed Wi-Fi bands, potentially improving coverage in areas where its regular network struggles.

According to GigaOm, T-Mobile and Alcatel-Lucent will start deploying LTE over 5 GHz Wi-Fi bands in 2016. A trial run of so-called LTE-Unlicensed technology is set for later this year, followed by a rollout of more advanced LTE-License Assisted Access next year.

The idea, PCMag notes, is to set up small cells near universities, offices, and other areas where LTE coverage is in high demand. T-Mobile will then use unlicensed Wi-Fi spectrum to give its LTE network a boost, moving between channels that aren't already occupied by Wi-Fi networks.

IBM rolls out 3 new iOS apps for enterprises

IBM has unveiled a fresh crop of enterprise apps resulting from the partnership it forged with Apple last year.

Announced at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, the three new mobile apps for iOS target the banking, retail and airline industries and join the 10 industry-specific IBM MobileFirst apps that arrived in December.

Advisor Alerts, for example, is designed for enterprises in banking and financial services and aims to help financial professionals prioritize client-related tasks while away from the office. Powered by customized analytics, the app includes a personalized dashboard that displays recommended next steps and alerts about portfolio-affecting events; it also provides a platform for communication with colleagues back at the office.

Wasteland 2, the best game of 2014, is getting a post-release facelift and better mod tools

With all the tales of Kickstarter projects gone wrong, it's oh-so-refreshing when one of them turns out right. InXile announced recently that post-release support for Wasteland 2 now encompasses a visual overhaul as well, thanks to a move to Unity 5.

"Part of the newfound freedom weve gained from being an exclusively crowdfunded company is that it allows us to offer a high level of post-release support," wrote Wasteland 2 project lead Chris Keenan in a Kickstarter update. "While this is normal practice for an active multiplayer game, we believe that the ongoing improvements to the single player experience in Wasteland 2 are worth the time and money. The game truly continues to be a passion project for the team here at inXile."

Here's how Samsung made TouchWiz better on the Galaxy S6

Samsung promised a while back that it would pare down on its customization of Googles Androidand it sort of delivered.

The new Galaxy S6 features the next iteration of Samsungs TouchWiz UIor TouchWiz Nature UX, or whatever its called nowadays. (I actually asked for clarification on the name of the overlay, and even Samsung couldnt give me a straight answer.) Its built on top of Android Lollipop and this time its been drastically scaled down, though Samsung still has a ways to go before it's no longer guilty of Blue-ing up the Android interface.

A lot less bloatware

I remember when I first fired up the Galaxy S4 and noticed its crowded application drawer. There were all sorts of apps in there I never planned to use, courtesy of Samsung and the carriers. Whats worse: I couldnt actually delete them from storage, so all that extra space was taken up by apps I never intended to use.

Epic makes Unreal Engine 4 free to use

GDC hasn't even officially started and already there's huge news for the game development community: Epic's esteemed Unreal Engine is now completely free. Last year it was already surprising when Epic announced a new $19 per month subscription plan, but this is pretty incredibledabble with the full power of Unreal 4, with 100 percent of the source code, for nothing. Those who were currently subscribed to Unreal will have their most recent month refunded.

So how will Epic make money? Here's how it works, in their words:

"You can download the engine and use it for everything from game development, education, architecture, and visualization to VR, film and animation. When you ship a game or application, you pay a 5% royalty on gross revenue after the first $3,000 per product, per quarter. Its a simple arrangement in which we succeed only when you succeed."

Google's new Photos and Streams chief signals changes ahead for Google+

Google+ champion Vic Gundotra left the company almost a year ago, and Googles social network hasnt been the same since. It looks like more big changes are ahead: G+ product VP Bradley Horowitz is stepping up to lead Photos and Streams, a newly created area that curiously makes no mention of Google+.

That doesnt mean the network is disappearing. Sundar Pichai, Googles senior VP of products, hinted at the future of Google+ in a Monday morning talk at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

Google+ was always two things: a stream and a social layer, Pichai said. The stream has a passionate community of users, but the second goal was larger for us. Were at a point where things like photos and communications are very important. Were reorganizing around that.

Jolla's Sailfish tablet shows promise thanks to upgraded OS

Finnish company Jolla seems to be making good progress on its first tablet, which runs an improved version of its Sailfish operating system.

Since its inception in 2011, Jolla has bet on the Sailfish OS to differentiate itself from the competition on smartphones and now tablets. Android and iOS may dominate the tablet market, but Jollas Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign has showed there is an appetite, albeit not very big, for products running other OSes. The company has so far sold about 10,000 tablets after two rounds on Indiegogo, the second of which is still running.

Development on the tablet has come a long way since the product was first announced back in November. Back then it wasnt much more than a mock-up, but at an event on Monday the company showed the tablet running an upgraded version of Sailfish without many glitches.

Sense ID is Qualcomm's ultrasonic answer to Apple's Touch ID

Qualcomm is hoping to take on Apple's Touch ID fingerprint sensor with Sense ID, an ultrasonic scanning technology for future Snapdragon chips.

Touch ID is generally regarded as the best fingerprint reader for mobile devices, as it can unlock iPhones and iPads with just a light touch in any orientation. But it does have one big weakness: The sensor has trouble recognizing damp fingers, so it can be frustrating to use on humid days.

Qualcomm may have the opposite problem, as it usesan ultrasonic sensor that penetrates the outer layers of the skin and creates a 3D map of your finger's unique traits, including ridge lines and sweat pores. According to SlashGear, Sense ID actually works best when your finger is slightly damp, and may struggle to read drier digits.

Switchmate makes your home lighting smart without any changes to your wiring

When it comes to smart lighting controls for the connected home, there have been just two basic choices: You can plug lamps into ugly wall-wart plug-in modules, or you can remove your existing light switches and replace them with smart switches.

The first choice is ugly and doesnt work with overhead lighting; the second choice is expensive and requires you to handle bare electrical wires. But now the crew at Switchmate have an ingenious third way that delivers the benefit of a switch replacement without the need to deal with wiring.

I first saw a prototype of the Switchmate back at CES. Its a block of plastic with a servo motor, a Bluetooth Low Energy radio, and a couple of magnets on the inside, and a simple button on the outside. Place the Switchmate over your existing light switch and the magnets secure it. Press the button and the motor moves the existing light switchs control mechanism to turn the light on and off (it works with both a traditional toggle switch as well as the fancier Decora/rocker switch).

Europe's political youth organizations demand strict net neutrality rules

European political youth organizations have demanded that European countries draft strict and clear net neutrality rules that prevent ISPs from discriminating against certain Internet traffic.

In order to keep the Internet open, all data on the Internet should be treated equally, 51 youth organizations said in a manifest sent to European ministers on Monday.

The ministers, gathered in the Council of the EU, are in the process of discussing a new EU telecom law as proposed by the European Commission and the European Parliament that contains clauses on net neutrality and roaming. The Parliament in April last year voted to enshrine net neutrality in EU law, so that all traffic would be treated equally and without discrimination. However, the Council is trying to get some traffic discrimination back into the draft.

Hands on: The Huawei Watch is the best-looking Android Wear watch I've seen

The best-looking Android Wear watch is coming this summer, and its not made by LG, or Samsung, or Motorola. Its from Huawei. Yes, the Chinese giant that doesnt sell its phones in the U.S. (But dont worrythe Watch is coming Stateside.)

I got to spend a little time with the new smartwatch, and instantly wanted one. Yes, like all Android Wear watches, its a little on the large side for those with slight wrists like me. But it has a simple understated appearance I really dig, and the size of the watch seems dominated by the big 1.4 inch 400x400 pixel OLED display, and not a bunch of extra casing. It didnt feel especially heavy for its size, either. I could comfortably wear it all day.

HP will buy Aruba to bolster its wireless networking business

Hewlett-Packard will purchase Aruba Networks to boost its wireless networking business, the companies announced Monday.

HP will offer US$24.67 per share, giving Aruba a $3 billion value. The deal is worth $2.7 billion taking into account Arubas debt and cash.

By buying Aruba, HP will be able to help businesses beef up their wireless networks to meet the demands of an increasingly mobile workforce, the companies said.

This is HPs first major acquisition since CEO Meg Whitman announced last year that the company would split into two. One half will focus on enterprise products and the other well sell printers and PCs.

Whitman recently said that HP can make acquisitions despite the companys troubled finances. Last week HP lowered its financial outlook for fiscal 2015 after reporting that revenue and profit decreased in the first quarter. During that quarter, HPs networking sales fell 11 percent, compared to the year-ago period.

HTC One M9 vs. Samsung Galaxy S6: Which flagship phone will you want?

Two top-tier flagship phones were just announced within hours of each other: the HTC One M9 and Samsung Galaxy S6. Which is the one youll want to carry in your pocket? Obviously, there are still some important details we dont know yet (like price). But ahead of our final reviews, and having spent hands-on time with each of them, Im ready to make a very early judgment, and its not good news for HTC fans.

Industrial design

HTC had a great design with the One M8. Yes, it was a little too tall, but the all-aluminum body with no gaps or seams was really nice. The M9 is a refinement of that. The curved back is slightly flatter and its easier to grip. Its a handsome phone that feels good in the hand. But its still a little too tall and heavy.

No flagship Lumia phone coming before Windows 10, Microsoft confirms

Anyone looking to replace their high-end Windows Phones will have to hold out until this fall, when Windows 10 is due to launch.

Neil Broadley, Microsoft's director of phone marketing, confirmed to The Verge that the company won't release any new flagship Lumia phones before then. We remain completely committed and focused on new flagship products, Broadley said. That said, certainly we believe the best time to bring those flagship devices to market is when we have our very latest flagship software experience available.

Microsoft had already hinted at its flagship phone plans back in January, when the company gave its first look at Windows 10 on smartphones. Broadley's comments make clear that there won't by any high-end phones from Microsoft in the meantime. And while that doesn't technically preclude partners like HTC and Samsung from releasing their own flagship phones, it seems unlikely that they'll jump the gun on Windows 10 either.

Recover a stolen laptop, or prepare for the day your laptop is stolen

Sylvia Chepkurui asked, Can I recover my stolen laptop using the serial number?

Probably not, but having the serial number gives you at least some chance of recovery. Without it, even if the police find your laptop in a stash of stolen property, you would have no way of proving its yours.

And no, booting the computer, entering your password, and showing your files wont workunless its recovered in the first few hours after the theft. Stolen computers hard drives are almost always wiped clean of any record of the lawful owner.

Panasonic announces Nubo, a Dropcam killer at Mobile World Congress

If you want to see a reporters eyes roll, open your product pitch by saying your new widget is a [insert name of longtime category leader here] killer. So my eyes rolled hard when Panasonics PR representative told me the company would announce a Dropcam killer at Mobile World Congress this year.

My reaction, as it turns out, might have been off the mark. If Panasonic delivers everything its promising with its Nubo security camera, it could very well knock Googles Dropcam off its perch. Theres just one hitch: Panasonic doesnt plan to ship the camera in Europe until the fourth quarter, and it wont be available in the U.S. until the first quarter of 2016.
