Check out kids’ reactions to Windows 95 in the video right after the break. I don’t blame them, because Windows 95 is like really, really old. Well, my first Windows is also Windows 95, and so I guess I’m pretty old. I wonder how these kids will react if they get to see Windows 3.1. Windows 95 brings back some memories for me, especially the 56K modem which can make the annoying modem noise. This reminds me of “You’ve Got Mail” movie somehow. Anyhow, I wonder any of these kids in the video actually has tried out Ubuntu (Linux) before. Although Ubuntu is so easy to use nowadays, but you can still use so many old school tricks to actually make Ubuntu performs even more meaningful and powerful than just mouse clicking away. How would they react to Ubuntu’s terminal and command lines?
Here is another game that looks exciting and pretty. Check out upcoming Star Wars Battlefront (2015) video game in the trailer right after the break. The game will be available for purchase on November 17th of this year, and it would be available on Windows, PS4, and Xbox One. According to Wikipedia, this next iteration of Star Wars Battlefront is not a sequel of the previous ones, but it’s a reboot.
In the video right after the break, I go into what you can do right after installing or upgrading to Windows 10. Enjoy!!!
I got Windows 8.1, and I need to upgrade to Windows 10 today since it’s just out today. Nonetheless, I had not reserved Windows 10 through Windows 10 reserved app icon, so how am I going to upgrade to Windows 10? My situation isn’t unique in relation to upgrade to Windows 10, but there are other situations that also prevent Windows 7 and 8 owners to have Windows 10 upgrade today! Of course, in due time Microsoft eventually rolls out Windows 10 to most Windows 7 and 8 owners. Still, if you are impatient and want to upgrade to Windows 10 right away, you can watch my tutorial right after the break in which I show you how to upgrade to Windows 10 manually. Enjoy!!!
My brand new 5 Terabytes 3.0 USB Seagate Expansion Desktop external hard drive was transferring data at 15MB/s, and this is super super slow for 3.0 USB external hard drive. At first, I thought the hard drive was bad even though it is new. After tinkering with the hard drive and Windows, I finally found the solution to the problem. It was a Windows’ hard drive policy that prevented this drive from transferring data at the correct speed. After fixing up the problem, this drive is now transferring at 150 – 200 MB/s data speed. In the video right after the break, I show you how to speed up your slow external hard drive. Enjoy!!!
I’ve been testing Windows 10 Preview version out lately. So far, I think the graphical user interface of Windows 10 is definitely an upgrade over all previous Windows versions. Let me simply put, I like Windows 10 overall look! Of course I’ve been encountering several bugs since I’m using Windows 10 Preview version, and within this blog post I want to address one specific bug that has gotten me so annoyed lately.
If you set up PIN as your log-in password for Windows 10 Preview (version 10147 and previous versions), then after next log-in session your network shares will not be accessible. Even you have already mapped a network drive, it will be disconnected and unavailable for the next log-in. Rebooting computer won’t help!
The solution is to reset the PIN, but don’t create new PIN! If you reset the PIN, it will ask you to create new PIN. If you refuse to create new PIN, then the PIN won’t be available as password log-in method. Once you have done this, you can use the Picture log-in method and other log-in methods, except for PIN log-in method, to log into your Windows 10. Once you access your Windows 10 after the abandonment of PIN log-in method, you will notice that now you can access network shares.
Good luck to you! For now, I like to end this post here. Of course, I’m going to try to play around with Windows 10 Preview version and whatever Preview version that will come out later, and I’ll write up some more about my experience with Windows 10. For now, let’s say I’m still experimenting with Windows 10 Preview version 10147.
