You Can Now Play Thousands of Amiga Games For Free

Image
You Can Now Play Thousands of Amiga Games For Free:The Internet Archive is the home of our digital past, and now it’s offering the greatest gift to any kid who grew up in the 80s and 90s: thousands of playable Amiga games.
If you’re unfamiliar with Amiga, the computer system was the technological successor of the Commodore 64, one of the most popular computers ever made. The Amiga 1000 ran on its own operating system (Amiga OS), could display up to 4,096 colors, and was Commodore’s heavyweight contender against Apple’s Macintosh. It’s still a much-loved machine to this day.As The Next Web notes, the Amiga system didn’t even have 10,000 games, so the archive could probably use a little housekeeping to get rid of some duplicates. But there is some Double Dragon and Batman: The Movie along with some other titles I’ve never heard of but sound A+. Even though Amiga is no longer with us (RIP 1985-1994), nostalgia never dies. Clear your schedule. It’s time for dip back in time.[Internet Archi…

BlackBerry Blend has officially reached EOL status:If you're a fan of BlackBerry Blend, BlackBerry has quietly posted some disappointing news. According to their software lifecycle page, BlackBerry Blend as of July 31, 2016, has reached end of life status and will no longer be supported officially.If you're a fan of BlackBerry Blend, BlackBerry has quietly posted some disappointing news. According to their software support lifecycle page, BlackBerry Blend as of July 31, 2016, has reached end of life status and will no longer be supported officially. The app which was originally released in September of 2014 alongside the BlackBerry Passport, allowed users to seamlessly bring messaging and content from their BlackBerry smartphone to your computer and tablet.Personally, it was one of my favorite apps to go along with BlackBerry 10 but its lifecycle felt a bit short when it was not made available for the BlackBerry Priv plus, the desktop apps nor the device apps have been updated…

Download and install the Windows 10 Anniversary Update

Image
While the release date of the Windows 10 Anniversary Updateis August 2, 2016, not all users will receive the update on that date as Microsoft plans to roll it out gradually.
Microsoft plans to deliver the update via Windows Update starting 19:00 CET, and via the Media Creation Toolkit at around the same time.
Using the Media Creation Toolkit has two advantages: first, you may get the update earlier, and second, you may download and create installation media instead of updating the PC directly. This way, you can perform offline updates among other things.
Note: We suggest you back up important data before you continue. Ideally, create a system backup so that you get an option to restore it if you run into issues during the update or afterwards. The update should pick up all files and programs, so that they remain available. Some programs may be removed however if they are not compatible with the new version of Windows 10.

All the Coolest Features of Windows 10's Anniversary Update

Image
Microsoft's first big feature update for Windows 10, the Anniversary Update, is out today. With it comes a smarter Cortana, better multiple desktop tools, and tweaks that fix annoyances we've hated since Windows 10 launched.
Cortana Is Way Smarter, and Can Talk to Android and Windows PhoneCortana reminds me not to schedule dinner during my plans to see Suicide Squad. Cortana on Windows 10 is already pretty useful. You can check your schedule, get answers to simple, spoken questions, find and keep your notes, set reminders, and more. Now it's getting even smarter. For example, if you add an event to your calendar that conflicts with another scheduled event, Cortana will let you know that you're about to double-book yourself. Cortana can also interact with other apps to make reservations, or send the document you were recently working on to someone in your contact list.
Cortana can also bridge the gap between your phone and PC, much like Pushbullet before it. With today&…

One of the new features of Windows 10's Anniversary Update is support for Microsoft Edge extensions.
Originally released in the Windows 10 Insider Build 14291, extension support is now available to all users who have updated the operating system to the Anniversary Update version.
Microsoft Edge extensions are similar in functionality to extensions for Google Chrome. The company stated earlier that it is easy to port Chrome extension to Microsoft Edge. The first batch of extensions are mostly Chrome ports of existing extensions.
The following guide walks you through the steps of discovering extensions for Microsoft Edge, installing them, using them, and managing them.

Image
Getty Image/Microsoft Today is the day Microsoft has been building up to for months: The Windows 10 Anniversary Update. Starting today, Microsoft will be rolling out an update that piles on dozens of tweaks and major changes to the software. Here's what you should keep an eye out for, and what to try once the update appears.
Cortana Cortana, named after the artificial intelligence Master Chief pals around with in the Halo franchise, is already on Windows 10; it's essentially Siri for your desktop. The Anniversary Update, however, will enable Cortana to do a lot more. You can use it to perform simple tasks from the lock screen, ask it to remember key information like flight numbers and appointments, and have it push notifications from your phone to your desktop, provided you install the Cortana app.
Microsoft Edge Microsoft's replacement for Internet Explorer is getting a much needed overhaul in the Anniversary Update. Edge will be getting extensions — finally — and it'…
