If you are like me who post actively on social media and write regular blog posts, then you are editing lots of photos. Also, on many occasions instead of posting individual photos, you will like to create a collage to tell the stories better. For quick photo-editing say a crop here or adjusting the contrast there, I use the inbuilt Windows 10 Photos App if I am on my PC or Google Photos while posting from my phone. For anything more, I turn to the gold standard Adobe Photoshop – Currently I use the Adobe Photoshop Elements 2018 bought from Microsoft…

கர்ணன் கவசக் குண்டலங்களை இழந்து வருந்தினாரா எனக்குத் தெரியாது. ஆனால் இன்று என் மடிக்கணினி (Asus ZenBook Pro UX501) பிறந்த விட்டிற்குச் சென்றிருக்கிறது, உடம்பு தேறி (அமெரிக்காவில் இருந்து உதரி பாகங்கள் வர வேண்டுமாம்), திரும்பி வர 21 நாட்கள் ஆகுமாம்,  ஒரு மண்டலமாவது ஆகும் என்பது இது போன்ற நிகழ்வுகளில் என் அனுபவம்.   அது வரை விண்டோஸ் இல்லாமல், அழுதுங்கொண்டே நான் (என் பழைய)ஆப்பில் ஐ-மேக்ஐ பயன்படுத்த வேண்டும்.   எனக்கு இது, என் வீட்டைவிட்டு என் அக்கா(க்கள்) வீட்டில் இருப்பது போன்ற உணர்வைத் தான் கொடுக்கிறது. என் அக்காக்களுக்கு என் மீது பாசம் அதிகம், அவர்கள் வீடும் என் வீடு போலத் தான்,ஆனாலும் என் வீடு இல்லேயே. என் பொருட்கள், நான் வைத்த இடத்தில்,இருக்காதே!   #Laptop #GoneForRepair #MissingMyPC

Windows 95 was one of the most successful operating systems that were ever produced for Desktop computing. I used to love it when it came, it brought so many powerful capabilities to the hitherto humble PC including multimedia, streaming video, video conference (remember NetMeeting), powerful web browsing, mainstream 32-bit computing and so on. This month, a talented software engineer at Slack, Mr Felix Rieseberg has rekindled the love for Windows 95 by releasing a version of the OS that runs as an application. It sounds insane but seeing it in action it was awesome. Released as an Electron app – meaning it doesn’t…

Earlier to Windows 10, Microsoft used to update the operating system once every 3-4 years. As a PC power user, I will be waiting eagerly anticipating the new features that will be coming. Most often, every new version of Windows will be bringing new capabilities for developers as well. Today, Windows is no more the most popular computer operating system – that crown has now moved to Android and iOS – and Windows along with Android and iOS have matured and there are only incremental improvements coming than revolutionary changes. To address the changed world, Microsoft has moved to a…

My brother-in-law works as a Manager-Aircraft Engineering for an airline in India, in his job he requires to carry Aircraft manuals and engineering drawings. Airbus and Boeing make most of these available through their proprietary apps. To help in this and regular productivity task he prefers a Windows laptop. His criteria are the machine should be lightweight and easy to carry around. For many years, he was using the Sony Vaio TX Series (VGN-TX57GN) that I gave him, weighing less than 1.25Kgs he was loving that device. After that machine, he tried few including an HP Tablet running Windows, he…
