I like the Thermaltake Talon Blu mouse, but the manual is lacking. Here are some questions you might have. Where can I download drivers or a control panel? There are none. It’s plug and play, the way all input devices should be. How do I turn off the glowing light? Hold down the left mouse button and press the DPI button (next to the scroll wheel). It cycles between on, breathing, and off.
All the reporting everywhere is kinda boring. It turns out that this is because E3 is boring this year. I have taken the liberty of summarizing the highlights. Hardware Microsoft announced two new consoles. One of them is an old console. Sony announced that they will announce a new console. Nintendo will not be announcing that they will announce a new console. Several companies want to sell very expensive hats that hold cell phones in front of your face.
For the past year, Windows 7 and 8 have been demanding users to upgrade to Windows 10. For the past year, conservative users with a deep, well-paced mistrust of technology have been ignoring this request. Microsoft has had enough. It’s time to forcibly move things forward. It’s time to make computers great again. A close friend was noticeably perturbed when their Windows 7 PC was suddenly running Windows 10. As a terrible friend, I was unsympathetic.
My employer gave me an Amazon Echo for Christmas (said employer is pretty rad!). The Echo is basically a standalone version of Apple’s Siri. Of course, I promptly tried to get to do everything, with varying levels of success. My initial concern was privacy. I haven’t sniffed wifi traffic yet, but it doesn’t appear to be transmitting all noise in the room to Amazon at all times; it only activates when it hears it’s name.
