There are various opinions about piracy, but one thing we can all agree upon is the fact that the best way to stop piracy is to offer something even better or employ More »
Dear Google, I f’ing love you. You know that. We’ve had a good run for many, many years. You’ve provided me with free services, and I’ve done jack s**t for you. I More »
So, you’re into photography and film-making, but you don’t have Exxon’s budget. That’s OK, according to Blackmagic Design. They just made a camera that costs a little more than the beer budget More »
If you’re tired of having to refill your ink cartridge, there’s a printer out there somewhere that uses droplets of water to create an image in mid-air. While this might not be lucrative for printing your CV, it’s entertaining enough to work for a business that wants to attract the attention of prospective customers.
For those of you on the lookout for awesome devices that really look like something from a sci-fi movie, look no further than… It doesn’t have a name, but it’s a concept device that will turn any glass surface into a full touchscreen, with a keyboard and disk navigation. For the sake of naming the device, we’ll call it the holographic tablet.
Did you get bored already of your old Windows logon screen? If you’re reading this, you were probably unaware of the fact you can actually tweak the screen to your liking, and include any picture you wish, including a picture of your boss wearing a tutu and spinning like a ballerina. That would make anyone’s day.
The time has come to say goodbye to the old year and hello to 2012. It’s been a hard year for everyone and I’m sure you can’t wait to see whether we’re all going to go out in a firestorm at the end of the world when the Mayan calendar finishes its long count. I personally think Godzilla’s going to eat us all on December 20th, 2012, a few days earlier than the end of the world was predicted.
While it might be universal knowledge for some, many people do not know how to properly work with the Windows registry, let alone even open it. Some don’t even know what it is. That’s why I’m writing a brief manual on operating with the Windows registry. I know that almost every website has a registry tutorial, but there’s a reason The Tech Guy has one: I’m too lazy to repeat myself in every tutorial I write that involves a couple of modifications in the registry.
The year is almost over, and seeing as it’s now December the 25th, I just want to take the time to officially wish all of you a merry Christmas. It’s been a great year and, in these few months, the site’s gone pretty far. I don’t know what you’re going through right now, but I really hope that you’re all having a good time at least today. If Christmas didn’t come yet in your area, just come back and read this article when midnight strikes. That gives me more page views anyway :).
If you’ve been reading news around the web, maybe you’ve found that Google often implements “Easter eggs” in its system. When you type “do a barrel roll” on the search bar, for example, the screen does exactly what you told it to do. Here’s another one: Google Gravity. This time, Google released a new Easter egg in light of the holidays that puts snow on your screen. Give it a try! The keyword is “Let it snow.” Note that your browser won’t support this unless it supports “Canvas,” a feature of HTML 5. Don’t forget to click “Defrost” when all the frost builds up on your screen. Happy surfing!
As I was re-reading my previous post about Christmas gift recommendations this year, I noticed that I didn’t give a drop of attention to children. Seeing as I’m inclined to spoiling kids, I’ve forgotten that one of the most beautiful things to look forward to in Christmas is the look on your child’s face when you get him/her something special. With tech & gadgets in mind, I decided to write up a small and brief list of techy gifts you can give children, whether it be your son, daughter, niece, nephew, or delinquent child you lock up in the basement.
The beginning of the twenty-first century brought a huge increase in gadgets and computing technology. That’s very fortunate for me, because I can now capitalize on it with the “Christmas Spirit.” I now bring you the first Christmas gift recommendation in The Tech Guy’s history. And for those of you offended because I keep saying “Christmas,” just know that I’m a pantheist (sort of atheist). Don’t play the smart-ass card.
