As the end of the year approaches, AMD packed a special surprise for its graphics card users – the Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition (Yes, that’s Adrenaline without an “e”) which is now available for download at AMD’s website here. The new update brings a healthy boost to features as well as many refinements to existing features.
Performance has always been the paramount focus when it comes to any driver. According to AMD, the new Andrenalin driver ups the performance in some popular titles like Overwatch, Prey, and Project Cars 2. Input latency has been optimised slightly for DX11 titles. [...]
AI (Artificial Intelligence) and computer vision has exploded in popularity in the past few years as major companies such as Google, Facebook, Apple, Nvidia, Tesla and others have invested heavily into the technology for a wide variety of applications ranging from automatic photo tagging to self driving cars.
Naturally then in a recent announcement by the world’s largest porn streaming site PornHub, it looks like porn is about to get a whole lot more intelligent as well. According to the announcement, PornHub has recently implemented an AI computer vision system that can automatically tag videos by the performer. The way PornHub is doing this is by feeding [...]
AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) is finally signing off after 20 years of service.
In a concise and nostalgic blog post, AOL announced that AIM will be closing its doors to all users on December 15, 2017.
AIM tapped into new digital technologies and ignited a cultural shift, but the way in which we communicate with each other has profoundly changed. As a result we’ve made the decision that we will be discontinuing AIM effective December 15, 2017. We are more excited than ever to continue building the next generation of iconic brands and life-changing products for users around the world.
AIM was massively popular in the late 90s and early 2000’s, but [...]
It’s been a decade since Facebook launched their videos feature and while it’s still not quite as popular as YouTube, Facebook video is still one of the most popular video platforms out there.
However, just like YouTube, watching videos on Facebook requires an internet connection, so if you know you’ll be away from an internet connection for a while, or you know your data plan simply isn’t up to snuff, you may want to just download the video to your computer or smartphone to watch offline.
As such, today we’ll show you how to download and save Facebook videos to watch offline on your PC, Mac, Android, or iOS [...]

When it boils down to it, one of the most important components of your new gaming PC is the keyboard. Aside from the mouse, the keyboard, and maybe a gaming controller there’s literally nothing else that translates what you want to do to the PC. Unless you invest mind control… or something.
Over the past few years, one of the most popular categories of gaming keyboards have been the mechanical gaming keyboards. Unlike the cheap, soft and mushy rubber dome keyboards, mechanical gaming keyboards offer a better feel, more consistent actuation, better overall performance, and better reliability.
That said, with the increased popularity of mechanical [...]
Although this may be the first time you’re using it, Snapchat is one of the most popular social networking platforms on mobile devices. Snapchat’s major differentiating factor is that photos or videos are sent out as what they call “Snaps” to either users you select or you can post them as stories so others can see what you’ve been up to.
However, one thing about the Snapchat is that if you’ve been a user of Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, Snapchat’s interface isn’t the easiest to figure out. There are very few instructions in the app on how to use it, which makes it difficult to do simple things like upload a [...]
If you own a modern Android smartphone, have Allo Messenger, or a Google Home device, one of the most awesome features about it is its ability to respond to voice commands by simply saying “OK Google”. While initially OK Google voice commands felt a bit gimmicky rather than useful, numerous rounds of improvements along with improved voice recognition have made it very useful for doing simple things like calling someone while driving or sending a quick text message from across the room.
Unfortunately, Google doesn’t provide a full list of OK Google commands, but we’ve gone ahead and compiled a list of the most useful OK Google commands [...]
China has always had a stringent policy of internet censorship ever since the rise of the internet in the country. Known as the “Great Firewall”, China blocks access to online services that it deems to be against the interest of the state. These services include popular sites such as Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, Wikipedia, and more. However, despite the country’s censorship policies, tech savvy individuals could still easily get around the “Great Firewall” by simply using a VPN service.
However, it appears that this is about to change as a recent article by Bloomberg reports that China is ordering its telecom carriers to block access to [...]
Back in 2013, privacy and encryption was thrust into the forefront of mainstream news when NSA whistleblower, Edward Snowden, leaked a huge repository of classified materials to the press, revealing a lot of very unnerving information about the NSA’s global surveillance programs. Among what was revealed included the NSA’s capability to monitor the online activities of US citizens which include everything from browsing activity to phone calls to e-mails to text messages and much, much more.
While government spying may be worrisome, what should be even more worrisome is the fact that unencrypted transmissions can literally be deciphered by anyone [...]
