In case your Windows PC ever freezes, you actually DON’T have to restart the computer. It turns out that Windows has a generally unknown keyboard shortcut that restarts your video drivers, which is basically what you could try to fix freezes that would otherwise need a forced restart. What this key combination does is restart the graphics subsystem for Windows 10 and Windows 8 computers; no keyboard shortcut for restarting your graphics drivers exists on Windows 7.

I love my Retron 5. At its core, the Hyperkin-made system is able to play video game cartridges for the NES, SNES, Genesis, Famicom, Super Famicom, Mega Drive, Game Boy, Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance. Essentially, the Retron 5 plays an emulated ROM dumped from the original cartridge on a HD television via HD-friendly visual filters to select from. PLUS, you can save your game, take screenshots and add language translations for imports as patches! SCORE. But it seems Hyperkin isn’t settling with the Retron 5 being a 9-in-one system (or 10 if you have a Master System converter of some type), as this next announcement instantly caught my attention.

There exist many photo editing programs, both online-based and offline-based.  In a sea of options, I wanted to see what made PearlMountain Technology Company’s FotoJet a practical online photo editing program. It must be said that it certainly helps to have had some experience with other photo editing products before jumping into any program of that type. Fortunately for newcomers, that won’t apply for FotoJet, as it lets you edit photos, create collages, make photo cards, posters and practically anything else with the greatest of ease, which — in my mind — makes it one of the best free online photo editors/collage maker available today.

Carrier-Free SIM Cards Are HERE…in Holland.

The country of Holland has quite the experience when it comes to tolerating things that other countries deem illegal (**wink-wink**).  However, this tiny nation has recently approved something other than that thing that could be used for medicinal reasons. Holland passed a measure that ratified the use of blank SIM cards untied to a specific (or ANY) wireless carrier, allowing the ability for users to make whatever tweaks possible for them to use any wireless network that is best for them.

Can’t Write? Can’t Use Scissors? Here’s A Printer For You!

With all of the hullabaloo about 3D printers, espcially after CES and the rise of more economically-prices printers of that variety, It’s nice to talk about old-school, 2D printing again.  This is the Cricut’s brand new $300 printer model, the Explore, but it’s both like and unlike our traditional home inkjet printers at home. Like its the prior Cricut models use a small blade on its “print head” where the ink would normally be installed, the Explore can cut and slice up a page to your heart’s desire, PLUS this new model introduces the ability to draw any design using your own choice of marker.
