Belkin Routers and Windows 8-Can They Work Together?

BELKIN-VS-WINDOW8

Can Belkin routers play nice with Windows 8 devices?

 

I recently experienced a very hard issue thanks to Windows 8 (8.1) and Belkin Routers. It turns out that Belkin routers have not been updated to run naturally on 8, unlike Windows 7. They were supposed to update their software/drivers last year, but they never did. So I was forced to work at Starbucks while I looked into my issue. At first I thought it was my modem, which was no longer support by Microsoft, which set me back by $80+ dollars to replace. Of course that still didn’t work, causing me to dig deeper only to see Belkin dropped the ball. With no updated drivers or software, it has left many wondering what can they to make it work?

Well, it looks like we have found a solution. Here are the steps that I took to make it work.

The Frustrations of Shopping at Best Buy

best-buy-logo

I live around the Savannah, GA area and we sadly only have one tech store, Best Buy. I typically love shopping or browsing there just because they sell many amazing items. However, that is only true when I do not have to deal with their customer service. Thinking that you are shopping at a tech store, you would be inclined to believe that they hire people who actually KNOW their stuff. Not at that location, 99.9% of the time their sales floor people have no clue on what I am talking about. As someone who studied PC Repair and works in the IT world, I find myself knowing what I looking for way better than their employees do. Here are a few examples of my experience today.

Squids Odyssey Was Not What I Expected

logo_squids_odyssey

 

Over this summer The Game Bakers was kind enough for me to review their newest game Squids Odyssey. If you remember correctly I was excited for the game as the trailer made it look inviting. Special effects and great marketing, the game reminded me of Mario Brothers or other similar style games. However, I admit that I was let down once I played the game. Hence why my review is on the later side. I wanted to give myself time to think it through and play it after at first feeling let down. Now I have come to my end thoughts that I am ready to share with you all.

My Bloggy Boot Camp Experience ATL 2014

Kind of late on the bandwagon, but as some who also works full-time I think my reason was valid. I attended the Bloggy Boot Camp Atlanta on October 11, put on by the fabulous Sway Group and SITS Girls.

Mozilla To Launch On Firefox Media Streaming Device

firefox-logo

Mozilla is not allowing Google to win at streaming media. They are working on their own Chromecast based product that will run Firefox instead of Chrome. The news was announced with a Mozilla fan leaked out a photo of the BETA type device and said the following, ““fully open TV casting prototype device running Firefox OS”. It was then confirmed by a video showing the device being announced on GigaOM. It will reportedly support Chrome apps and others, as it will be an open platform device. It will also block zero content, making it highly desirable for people and programmers alike.

No word on price yet or when people can expect it to be released yet.

How do you feel about Mozilla trying to steal a piece of the pie? Would you be interested in it or not?

Apple iWatch to Launch in October

56-apple-512

About a year behind Samsung, Apple is expected to release the much rumored iWatch is coming soon. It is reported that next month in July they will go into mass production in time for an October release. Apple has been secretly working on this project in hopes of breaking new boundaries and proving themselves as a top tech company. However, they are pretty behind on this project (like Microsoft was with the Zune). It currently has no official name, as it has never been fully announced or confirmed yet.

The watch is expected to be slim, with a slight protruding face from the band. It will reportedly feature a  2.5 inches diagonally, touch screen interface that can be charged wirelessly. It will require some features being synced with a smartphone, unlike Samsung’s Galaxy watch. Things such as video chat is being the example given at this point.

No word on price point yet. But Apple is expecting to move 50 million units within the next year.

Of course, this is all hearsay right now. Only time will tell us if it really is coming and if so, if they can salvage their half of that market share a year late.

Do you support Apple’s supposed iWatch dreams?

T-Mobile Announces Test-Drive Offer

t-mobile-logo-usa

Normally when you think of test driving, it has to do with car lots. Now T-Mobile is wanting to change our opinions on that. In fact, they just announced a new project called Test Drive. This chance will allow other phone service provider customers to try out the product for free, and free on an iPhone no less!

Here is how it works. Users go on to T-Mobile’s website, sign up and provide credit card information. Then you will be given an iPhone 5s that is loaned (with Apple’s blessing) to them. They can test it out for a few days (7 to be exact) and decided if they wish to use the service. Best of all, as long as the phone is returned in good condition, the tester does not get charged at all. However, for those who lose or damage it will be charged around $700.00+ for it. Each phone that is assigned the role of a test one cannot be bought for permanent use. However, you can return it and buy a regular iPhone or any other phone.

I have to admit that this idea sounds amazing. I do love how T-Mobile is changing the way no-contract phones work and since they started out as a contract based model, I am sure they have a great service to offer. I just wonder if they have a truly hidden catch? It just seems to be too good to be true.

How do you feel about T-Mobile’s new Test Drive offer?

Is Google Fit Heading Our Way?

nike-fuel-band

Google is on fire as of lately! The popular search engine is popping out new ideas and they already have a new project reportedly on their plate. They have plans to announce a new app called Google Fit. The program will allow those who use the ever popular fitness bands to import their data into an easy app. Think of it being like a cloud for other manufactures who create those devices. The announcement is expected to come at the annual Google I/O conference, which takes place later on this month. We will have to see if it will be built into the new Android OS or if it will be an official app.

What does this mean for the typical Android user? Nothing big, but it will be useful to those who do use fitness monitoring devices. It will be interesting to see if Google beats Apple by releasing it sooner. As for any future of an actual device coming, I am not sure what to say. It would make more sense for them to do that, but then again they have actual Google TV and a Google Chromecast. Thus it could be possible for them to still build and release one. I guess it would just be easier to see and test the waters out with Google Fit.

How do you feel about Google joining the mobile fitness craze?
