  • Upgraded my 4s from iOS 7 to 8 a few hours ago. First thoughts: * It installed cleanly (but I did have about 5GB of free space). * iOS 8 definitely seems a little more sluggish. No surprise there. ...
  • I really like: * The VSS support. * The fast .v. slow (file size/date versus full checksum) comparison option. * The native 64-bit support. It seems to be comprehensive, well thought out, and robust.
  • I have seen it install OpenCandy. However, I can tell you that I installed the latest FreeFileSync on two Win 7 systems today without any trace of any adware. I'm careful to check the installer ...
  • This is probably sound advice for existing 4s/5/5c/5s users. Of course, I'm disregarding it and installing iOS 8 on my 4s as we speak :-) But, I'm turning my phone in a couple of weeks from now, so ...
  • Robocopy is a command line tool. But it's easy to automate with a BAT/CMD file. You can run that from Scheduled Tasks, boot up, shutdown, even give the user a pretty icon to launch when they feel ...
  • Real-time may create some challenges. How are you expected the software to handle files that are in use (open for writing by other apps)? Getting something to handle that in the manner that you ...
  • Yep, phone, tablet, laptop, desktop... it's a lot of overhead managing all of these devices. Updates, backups, taking care of security etc. And, heck, when you're the "systems administrator" for a ...
  • The 6+ is too big for me. It's not a display problem per se; just a portability issue based on the manner in which I prefer to carry my phone (in a pocket). The 6 will work and the 6+ won't. I ...
  • My first smartphone was a Motorola Atrix 2. There was a fair bit to like, especially the microSD card. There were some annoyances too like having to root the thing just to install a simple ad ...
  • Check for any video driver updates. If you find a later driver available, it will quite likely solve the problem.
  • I have only used it to clean/compress VirtualBox images but I think you want this tool: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897443 All of the SysInternals tools are excellent. They ...
  • And another. Small, fast, simple, reliable, doesn't reconfigure your whole system.  And it does everything I've ever needed.
  • No personal experience but I'm told this product rocks in such applications. http://www.ubnt.com/airmax/picostationm/ If you set it up as an access point, you just need an Ethernet connection ...
  • Yes, the stand definitely helps cooling. Trouble is, I only have to breathe on mine and the stand falls off :-( I guess the thing is just about out of warranty now so maybe I should just epoxy the ...
  • Most folks here would say (have in fact said) otherwise. Vista 64-bit did not have a complete and stable set of drivers. And who would consider a system that crashes daily better than a stable one ...
  • I find imports and 100% renderings even of a single image rather slow and tedious. I feel it should be better. However, it's reasonably snappy when performing the edits and twiddling the knobs. I ...
  • I agree, the fundamentals of Win 7 and Win 8 aren't very different at all. Hence the Windows 8 upgrade is not worth the money that MS want for it. That by itself isn't a huge problem. I kept my ...
  • I can do that on Windows 7. Yeah, you need to know the "triick" but it's not difficult. Been doing it for 2-3 years! Personally, I think just about all manifestations of the Start button suck. ...
  • I disagree. The 64-bit version of Win 7 was a big deal. It was the first stable 64-bit Windows implementation including a full set of devices drivers that would handle 64-bit address space. For ...
  • It works for me :-) Unfortunately, GIMP doesn't. I'm really lost without Photoshop. I could live with an older version and I have tried messing around with old versions under Wine but the results ...
