SAMSUNG GALAXY S7 ,S7 Edge

After months of anticipation — and a seemingly endless supply of leaks — Samsung’s Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge are finally here.
Unveiled during Samsung’s press event at the Mobile World Congress electronics show in Barcelona, the S7 and S7 edge look a lot like their predecessors — but there are a couple of key differences, including new cameras, waterproof designs, and the return of expandable storage.
Will that be enough for the S7 and S7 edge to effectively do battle with Apple’s iPhone 6s and 6s Plus? Let’s take a look.

Subtle differences

To be honest, at first glance the Galaxy S7 doesn’t look all that different from its predecessor, the Galaxy S6. Sure, there are subtle differences, such as the phone’s new contoured back panel and smaller camera bump. But when I laid the S7 next to my S6, it was hard to tell which was which.
The S7 and S6 even have the same 5.1-inch, 2560 x 1440 Super AMOLED displays. (By comparison, Apple’s iPhone 6s has a 4.7-inch, 1334 x 760 LCD screen.)
The Galaxy S7 edge, on the other hand, boasts a larger 5.5-inch (up from 5.1 inches) 2560 x 1440 Super AMOLED screen. (Compare that to the iPhone 6s Plus and its 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080 LCD screen.)
For the clumsy folks out there — and I include myself in that group — Samsung has made both the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge waterproof.
In fact, the company says you can dunk the phones in water up to 5 feet deep for 30 minutes and they’ll come out unscathed. Let’s see your iPhone do that.
Both the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge also have improved cameras. While those cameras have fewer megapixels than the previous models — 12MP versus the previous generation’s 16MP — those pixels are larger. That means images should look sharper and brighter in normal and low-light situations.
The phones also get new “dual photodiode” pixels, which Samsung says will help with focus speed. Indeed, during a demonstration set up by Samsung, the S7 edge focused on an image about two seconds faster than the iPhone 6s Plus. 

Living on the edge

As with its predecessor, the S7 edge comes with a few special features that take advantage of its edge screens.
Like the S6 edge, the S7 edge lets you swipe in from either the left or right side of the screen to get quick access to your favorite contacts and apps. On the S7 edge, however, Samsung has also added quick actions to the edge screen, which let you set shortcuts for things like sending texts to specific people or launching certain webpages.
SAMSUNG GALAXY S7
News briefs and updates are also easier to read on the S7 edge, as they are now displayed horizontally rather than vertically.
Both the S7 and S7 edge come with Samsung’s new always-on display. The feature keeps the phones’ screens on at all times, but when you aren’t actively engaged with the handset, the screens only show things like the time, your calendar, the number of calls you’ve received, or the number of unread messages.
SAMSUNG GALAXY S7
What’s more, the always-on displays use the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge’s proximity sensors to determine when you put the phone in your pocket; that then turns off the screen. Samsung says the always-on display will use no more than 1 percent of the phone’s battery life when active.

Under the hood

Inside, the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge come with faster processors than their predecessors and 4GB of RAM. That means performance while playing games and running multiple apps should be silky smooth.
Samsung also seems to have listened to its critics, who bemoaned the loss of expandable storage in the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, by giving the S7 and S7 edge microSD card slots.
As a result, you’ll be able to add up to 200GB of extra storage space via a microSD card when you fill up the phones’ onboard storage.
SAMSUNG GALAXY S7
Both the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge also get significantly larger batteries. The S7 comes with a 3000 mAh unit, while the S7 edge gets a 3600 mAh pack. That’s far larger than the 2550 mAh and 2600 mAh batteries found in the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge, respectively.
Priced at $669.99 and $779.99, respectively, the S7 and S7 edge can be preordered starting on Feb. 23, with the phones hitting stores and doors March 11. (Check your mobile carrier for S7 and S7 edge monthly installment plan prices.) Those ordering an S7 phone in participating markets (U.S. included) between Feb. 23 and March 18 will receive a free Gear VR headset.
Stay tuned for our full review of both of Samsung’s new handsets in the coming weeks.

How do I use a Proxy Server?

How do I use a Proxy Server?

Everybody who have used proxies to keep his own privacy in the Internet asked yourself the same question: How much anonymous this particular proxy I'm currently using? In other words whether all my personal data is hidden or only part of it.
There are many different proxy anonymity classifications in the Internet. The simpliest way is to divide all proxies into two parts. First part of proxies are completely anonymous i.e. they hide all your private information. All other proxies are non-anonymous.

Transparent Proxy
This type of proxy server identifies itself as a proxy server and also makes the original IP address available through the http headers. These are generally used for their ability to cache websites and do not effectively provide any anonymity to those who use them. However, the use of a transparent proxy will get you around simple IP bans. They are transparent in the terms that your IP address is exposed, not transparent in the terms that you do not know that you are using it (your system is not specifically configured to use it.)

Anonymous Proxy

This type of proxy server indentifies itself as a proxy server, but does not make the original IP address available. This type of proxy server is detectable, but provides reasonable anonymity for most users.

 High Anonymity Proxies

These proxy servers are called “high anonymity proxy” or "elite proxy". In contrast to other types of anonymity proxy servers they hide a fact of using a proxy:
REMOTE_ADDR = proxy IP
HTTP_VIA = not determined
HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR = not determined
That means that values of variables are the same as if proxy is not used, with the exception of one very important thing – proxy IP is used instead of your IP address.

core i3 vs core i5

core i3 vs core i5










There are myriad choices you need to make when you're buying a new desktop or laptop PC, but one of the most important ones is CPU. In this regard, it's important to know what distinguishes the Intel Core i3 and Intel Core i5 from one another, as these two are what you'll mostly find in the budget/mainstream desktops and laptops available today. Discounting Intel Core i7 (which are mainly found in high-performance systems) and AMD processors (another article entirely), the difference between Intel Core i3 and Core i5 can seem complicated, especially when the prices seem so close together once they're in completed systems. The easy answer is "Core i5 is made for mainstream users who care about performance, and Core i3 is made for people who just need an Intel computer," but that can be too simplistic a differentiation. We look a little deeper.

Price and Marketing
 
Intel Core i3 systems will be less expensive than Core i5 systems. Intel has moved toward a capability-driven marketing message with current-generation Core processors. Essentially, the Core i5 processors have more capabilities than Core i3 CPUs. Core i5 will be better for media creation, multitasking, and will be an improvement if you regularly complain about your PC being slow. Core i3 will be sufficient for people who want a PC that's faster than an Atom-powered tablet or laptop, but don't want to spend any more than they have to. Core i3 CPUs also tends to be less expensive than Core M processors, which focus on longer battery life and are found in slimmer, fanless form factors. Spot-checking a system like the Lenovo Yoga 2 11, you'll find a Core i5-4202Y-equipped configuration about $100 more expensive than a similarly equipped Core i3-4012Y system.

Core Confusion
 
For the most part, you'll get faster CPU performance from the Core i5 parts over Core i3. Some Core i5 processors are dual-core and some are quad-core. Most of the time, a true quad-core CPU will perform better than a dual-core processor, especially on multimedia tasks like video transcoding or photo editing. All Core i3 processor are dual core. Occasionally, you'll find an older Ivy Bridge processor like the Intel Core i3-3130M in a system that's the same price as system with a newer Haswell CPU like the Intel Core i3-4012Y. Systems equipped with the fifth-generation Broadwell processors are the newest, utilizing CPUs like the Core i3-5020U. In general, the system will last longer with the newer processor, since the older CPU doesn't have a year or more worth of improvements in it. Unless the older system is on deep discount, we recommend buying the newer processor, all other factors being equal. Within the same generation, the essential takeaway is that to get better performance in each generation, buy a processor with a higher model number (e.g., a Core i5-5020U should have generally better performance than a Core i5-4010U).

Give Me the Cache 
 
In addition to generally faster base clock speeds, Core i5 processors have larger cache (on-board memory) to help the processor deal with repetitive tasks faster. If you're editing and calculating spreadsheets, your CPU shouldn't have to reload the framework the numbers sit in. This info will sit in the cache, so when you change a number, the calculations are almost instantaneous. Larger cache sizes help multitasking as well, since background tasks will be ready for when you switch focus to another window. On currently available desktop processors, i5 CPUs have up to 6MB of L3 cache, while i3 processors have 3MB to 4MB.

Turbo Boost 
 
Turbo Boost refers to Intel's "overclocking" feature built into its processors. Essentially, it allows the processor to run faster than its base clock speed when only one or two processor cores are needed (like when you're running a single-threaded task that you want done now). Most Core i5 processors use Turbo Boost, so for example, the Core i5-4300U processor has a base clock of 1.9GHz, but when the task warrants it, the processor can dynamically clock its cores up to 2.9GHz. Core i3 processors don't feature Turbo Boost.

Hyper-Threading 
 
Intel Hyper-Threading uses multithreading technology to make a processor appear to have more cores than it physically has to the operating system and applications. Hyper-Threading is used to increase performance at multithreaded tasks, such as a user running several programs simultaneously, but there are other tasks that take advantage of Hyper-Threading, like multimedia operations (transcoding, rendering, etc.) and Web surfing (loading different elements like Flash content and images simultaneously). Core i5 uses Hyper-Threading to make a dual-core CPU act like a four-core chipset, but if you have a Core i5 processor with four true cores, it won't have Hyper-Threading. For the time being, Core i5 tops out at handling four streams, either using four real cores or two cores with Hyper-Threading. All Core i3 models support Hyper-Threading; in these cases they are dual-core processors that can handle four threads.
Integrated Graphics
The Westmere generation of Core processors introduced Intel HD graphics, integrated graphics built into the processor core itself. Previous Intel integrated graphics were built onto the motherboard chipsets, rather than on the processor. You'll find DX10-compatible Intel HD Graphics 2000/3000 in older Sandy Bridge processors, and DX11-compatible Intel HD Graphics 2500/4000 in older Ivy Bridge processors. Haswell-based processors have DX11-compatible Intel HD Graphics 4200/4400/4600/5000 and Iris 5100 graphics, and Broadwell-based processors have Intel HD Graphics 5500/6000 and Iris 6100 graphics. The same numerical rules apply, so Intel HD Graphics 4000 performs much better than Intel HD Graphics 2000. You'll find some version of Intel HD graphics on Core i3 and i5 processors, depending on the part number. Intel Iris 6100 is the current top dog for Core i5, and will let you play 3D games at low to moderate settings, depending on the game.
In the grand scheme of things, Core i5 processors will get you better performance overall than Core i3 processors. Sometimes, however, the reverse is true. With the myriad different models out there, your best bet will be to check out each system's performance numbers before making your purchase decision. We can help here, too, with our laptop and desktop reviews.

Please be aware even if you do not get the Windows 10 app, you can still download Windows 10 as a .ISO file, create a bootable copy and upgrade your system.
How to: upgrade from previous versions of Windows using Windows 10 ISO file
  1. Check Windows Update for an updated version of KB2952664 (Windows 7 SP1) or KB2976978 (Windows 8.x)
  2. After installing the Windows Update, re-run the Compatibility Appraiser. This will happen automatically within a day or it can be run manually from an admin command prompt:
    • schtasks.exe /Run /TN "\Microsoft\Windows\Application Experience\Microsoft Compatibility Appraiser"
Once started, it may take 10 minutes or so for the appraiser to complete. Once complete, re-open the Get Windows 10 app and it will have the updated compatibility information. Restart your computer and try again.  Dan Charlton - Windows DirectX Graphics team
If the above does not work, try uninstalling both updates:
Press Windows key + X (for Windows 7 click Start, type: cmd then right click cmd and click Run as administrator)
Click Command Prompt (Admin)
At the command prompt, enter the following commands:
wusa /uninstall /kb:3035583
wusa /uninstall /kb:2952664

Exit the command prompt, restart and run Windows Update again.

Enable desable WiFi in Windows 8

ou take your new Windows 8 PC to a coffee shop. You’ve just set up wireless Internet at home. Or you’re one of the lucky ones who has Wi-Fi on a plane. So how do you connect to and manage your laptop’s Wi-Fi connections from Windows 8?

In the past, you’d click on the connection icon in the lower-right corner (this group of icons is called the Notification Area). Then, you’d choose a wireless network and connect from there.
Luckily, you can still do that in Windows 8. Just press Windows + D to go to the Windows 8 desktop, and you should see the familiar connection icon in the lower right. Click on it, and you’ll see a brand-new pane slide into view from the right side.

Enable WiFi Connections
This is the connection pane.
But what if you’d like to manage wireless connections from the Start Screen? Here’s how to do that.
  1. Press the Windows Key to go to the Start Screen
  2. Move the mouse to the bottom-right corner to see a few icons start to appear. Then move the mouse upward. These set of icons are called the Charm Bar
  3. Click Settings
  4. Click the Network icon. You’ll see the same pane as above slide into view

Enable WiFi Connections
Click the Network icon.
At the top is Airplane Mode. Those with a smartphone or tablet will be familiar with this setting. It disables all Wi-Fi connections and saves a lot of battery life … useful when your laptop is aboard a plane that doesn’t have Wi-Fi, or for landing and take-off. Also, you don’t have to use Airplane Mode when on a plane. There are lots of times where you’ll want to turn Wi-Fi off … such as when you’re connected to the Internet via cable.
Next up is your Connections. Here you’ll see an icon with a cable next to it if you’re connected to a hardline, or a series of bars if you’re connected to Wi-Fi. The shaded bars show your connection strength, with five being the highest.
Below that are the Wi-Fi connections available in your area. Find the one appropriate to you and click on it.
If you can select the Connect Automatically check box, your PC will connect to that source every time it’s in range. Then, click Connect. You may need to enter a password, depending on the connection.

Enable WiFi Connections
You can choose to connect automatically.
You can also disconnect from Wi-Fi or connect to a different location from this same screen.

Customizing the Windows 10 Start Menu

Customizing the Windows 10 Start Menu


Start menu in Windows 10, or you may hate it. But it actually doesn’t matter how you feel about it; you can expand it, shrink it, customize it, or get rid of it altogether.
Here’s the complete list of things you can do to the right side of the Start menu — and the left side.
Customizing the Windows 10 Start Menu

Right Side

Expand it: Drag the top or right edge, using the mouse or trackpad. It snaps bigger or smaller. (It doesn’t work with a finger on a touchscreen.)
Make it fill the entire screen: Right-click anywhere on the desktop. From the shortcut menu, choose Personalize. On the Settings screen, click Start, then turn on “Use Start full screen.”
In this mode, the left column of the Start menu is hidden. The live tiles area fills your entire desktop (which is handy for touchscreens).
Move a tile: With the Start menu open, drag a tile to a new spot.
Resize a tile: Right-click the tile. From the shortcut menu, choose Resize. You always have a choice of Small and Medium; some apps offer Wide or Large options, too.

Add new tiles: Right-click any folder, disk, or app. From the shortcut menu, choose “Pin to Start.”
(Or open the “All apps” list, and right-click an app’s name there.)
Its tile now appears at the bottom of the right side of your Start menu.
Make a tile stop blinking: If you’d rather silence the animation of a “live tile,” right-click it. From the shortcut menu, choose “Turn live tile off.”
Remove a tile: Open the Start menu. Right-click the tile you want to eliminate. From the shortcut menu, choose “Unpin from Start.” (You’re not actually discarding that item — you’re just getting its tile off the Start menu.)

Eliminate all tiles: Right-click each tile; choose “Unpin from Start.” Repeat until you’ve eliminated all the tiles. Now only the left-hand column remains, just as it was in Windows 7.
Change the color: Right-click anywhere on the desktop. From the shortcut menu, choose Personalize. In Settings, click Colors. You can change both the tile colors (“Accent color”) and the background of the Start menu and taskbar (“Show color on Start, taskbar, and action center”).

Left Side

Add new items: You can’t.
Remove items: You can remove listings in the “Most used” section — handy if you’re embarrassed about something that shows up there. To do that, right-click its name. From the shortcut menu, choose “Remove from this list.”
