Google Chromecast, How to Use it & Set it up.

Posted on Friday, August 18, 2017 with No comments

Friday, August 18, 2017

Gone are the days Cable TV used to be the best way of getting foreign content on your TV screen as it is been replaced with something far better considering the facts that cable tv are somehow overpriced which I think its absolutely uncalled for.

If you are geeky or techie, you’ll bear me witness that streaming is the new cable. For God sake why will you pay extra subscription for cable TV when you can simply stream directly with the same internet subscription to your TV set?
Here are smart devices that you can use as a substitute for your cable tv to make life easier and access the same foreign content without the overpriced monthly cable TV subscription. With any of these devices, what you will only be concern of with is your internet subscription and nothing elese. No more Monthly cable tv subscription.

So, if you are planning to ditch your cable contract and go for internet content, you should be thinking about purchasing Roku Ultra Streaming Device, the Amazon Fire TV Stick, Apple TV or the Google Chromecast
But let’s talk about Google Chromecast.
Google helps simplify your online life—from email and online storage to news and digital maps. But it can also take over your TV with its Chromecast, a streaming dongle that got a colorful makeover in 2015 and a 4K "Ultra" upgrade last year.
The Google Chromecast
The Google Chromecast Ultra for media streaming allows you stream in up to 4K Ultra HD and HDR with stunning pictures and lightning speed. What this means is that when you plug it into your regular TV HDMI port over your WIFI network it allows you stream movies, music and entertainment content in crisper picture, deeper color and smoother video quality with almost to no buffering and smoother streaming.
Whether your TV is 4K or HD, Chromecast Ultra automatically optimizes your content for the best picture quality possible.
Why Do I Need Chromecast?
With Chromecast, you get unlimited entertainment, all on your schedule. So, you’re not limited to the restrictive bouquet type access that you get on cable. With the Chromecast, you can access the latest movies on Netflix, the latest series on HBO and YouTube or browse over 200,000 TV shows and movies, 30 million songs plus radio, sports, games and more plus a range of free, subscription or paid content from thousands of apps.

Why Don’t I Need Chromecast?
If you prefer to watch TV the old-fashioned way (via network television, cable or DVR), Chromecast won't do you much good. Similarly, if you don't subscribe any streaming video services, Chromecast may be of limited utility. If you own a Roku, Apple TV, PS4 or Xbox One, your device already gives you access to most of the same content you'd get via Chromecast.
How Do I Set Up Chromecast?
Just plug it into your TV, have a smartphone or computer handy, and follow the instructions. As soon as Chromecast and your controller device connect to the same Wi-Fi, they should recognize each other and walk you through the rest of the process. 

Now, that’s a whole lot more than Cable TV offers you. Even if your WIFI network isn’t ready for the demands of 4K, Chromecast comes with a built in Ethernet adapter so you can enjoy rock solid streaming over a wired connection.
Where Can I Get Chromecast?
Well, you can get it on AliExpress, Bestbuy, Ebay for $35or Jumia Global for just N33,900.
Are you using it already? Lets here what you think.

How To Run Or Start Command Prompt In Windows - CMD.

Posted on Wednesday, August 16, 2017 with No comments

Wednesday, August 16, 2017



Recommended: Introduction To Windows Command Prompt - CMD


Step 1: Click on the Start Menu
Step 2: Click on the Run option
Step 3: Type the appropriate command in the Open: field. For example if we are using Windows XP we would type cmd.exe.
Step 4: Click on the OK button
After following these steps you will be presented with a window that look similar to Figure 1 below.

Windows Command Prompt
Figure 1. Windows Command Prompt
The command prompt is simply a window that by default displays the current directory, or in windows term a folder, that you are in and has a blinking cursor ready for you to type your commands. For example in Figure 1 above you can see that it says C:\WINDOWS>. The C:\WINDOWS> is the prompt and it tells me that I am currently in the c:\windows directory. If I was in the directory c:\program files\directory the prompt would instead look like this: C:\PROGRAM FILES\DIRECTORY>.

To use the command prompt you would type in the commands and instructions you want and then press enter. In the next section we will discuss some useful commands and how to see all available built in commands for the command prompt.

Useful commands

The command.com or cmd.exe programs have built in commands that are very useful. Below I have outlined some of the more important commands and further instruction on how to find information on all the available commands.

The Help command - This command will list all the commands built into the command prompt. If you would like further information about a particular command you can type help commandname. For example help cd will give you more detailed information on a command. For all commands you can also type the command name followed by a /? to see help on the command. For example, cd /?
The Exit command - This command will close the command prompt. Simply type exit and press enter and the command prompt will close.

The CD command - This command allows you to change your current directory or see what directory you are currently in. To use the CD command you would type cd directoryname and press enter. This would then change the directory you are currently in to the one specified. When using the cd command you must remember how paths work in Windows. A path to a file is always the root directory, which is symbolized by the \ symbol, followed by the directories underneath it. 

For example the file notepad.exe which is located in c:\windows\system32 would have a path as follows \windows\system32\notepad.exe. If you want to change to a directory that is currently in your current directory you do not need the full path, but can just type cd directoryname and press enter. For example if you are in a directory called c:\test, and there were three directories in that the test directory called A, B, and C, you could just type cd a and press enter. You would then be in the c:\test\a. If on the other hand you wanted to change your directory to the c:\windows\system32 directory, you would have to type cd \windows\system and press enter.

The DIR command - This command will list the files and directories contained in your current directory, if used without an argument, or the directory you specify as an argument. To use the command you would just type dir and press enter and you will see a listing of the current files in the directory you are in, including information about their file sizes, date and time they were last written to. The command will also show how much space the files in the directory are using and the total amount of free disk space available on the current hard drive. If I typed dir \test I would see the contents of the c:\test directory as shown in Figure 2 below.
Dir Command
Figure 2. DIR of c:\test
If you examine the screen above you will see a listing of the directory. The first 2 columns are the date and time of the last write to that file. Followed by whether or not the particular entry is a directory or a file, then the size of the file, and finally the name of the file. You may have noticed that there are two directories named . and .., which have special meaning in operating systems. The . stands for the current directory and the .. stands for the previous directory in the path. In the example above, .. stands for c:\windows.

Also note for many commands you can use the * symbol which stands for wildcard. With this in mind, typing dir *.txt will only list those files that end with .txt.

The Copy command - This command allows you to copy files from one location to another. To use this command you would type

copy filetocopy copiedfile. For example if you have the file c:\test\test.txt and would like to copy it to c:\windows\test.txt you would type

copy c:\test\test.txt c:\windows\test.txt and press enter. If the copy is successful it will tell you so and give you back the prompt. If you are copying within the same directory you do not have to use the path. Here are some examples and what they would do:
copy test.txt test.bak Copies the test.txt file to a new file called test.bak in the same directory
copy test.txt \windows Copies the test.txt file to the \windows directory.
copy * \windows Copies all the files in the current directory to the \windows directory.
The Move command - This command allows you to move a file from one location to another. Examples are below:
move test.txt test.bak Moves the test.txt file to a new file renaming it to test.bak in the same directory.
move test.txt \windows Moves the test.txt file to the \windows directory.
move * \windows Moves all the files in the current directory to the \windows directory.
At this point you should use the help command to learn about the other available commands.

Redirectors

Redirectors are an important part to using the command prompt as they allow you to manipulate how the output or input of a program is displayed or used. Redirectors are used by appending them to the end of a command followed by what you are redirecting to. For example: dir > dir.txt. There are four redirectors that are used in a command prompt and they are discussed below:
> This redirector will take the output of a program and store it in a file. If the file exists, it will be overwritten. If it does not exist it will create a new file. For example the command dir > dir.txt will take the output of the dir command and place it in the dir.txt file. If dir.txt exists, it will overwrite it, otherwise it will create it.
>> This redirector will take the output of a program and store it in a file. If the file exists, the data will be appended to the current data in the file rather than overwriting it. If it does not exist it will create a new file. For example the command dir >> dir.txt will take the output of the dir command and appends it to the existing data in the dir.txt file if the file exists. If dir.txt does not exist, it will create the file first.
< This redirector will take the input for a program from a specified file. For example the date command expects input from a user. So if we had the command date < date.txt, it would take the input for the date program from the information contained in the date.txt file.
| This redirector is called a pipe. It will take the output of a program and pipe it into another program. For example dir | sort would take the output of the dir command and use it as input to the sort command.

Batch Files

Batch files are files that have an extension ending in .bat. They are simply scripts that contain command prompt commands that will be executed in the order they are listed. To create a batch file, just make a file that ends in .bat, such as test.bat, and inside the file have the commands you would like. Each command should be on its own line and in the order you would like them to execute.
Below is example batch file. It has no real use but will give you an example of how a batch files works. This test batch file contains the following lines of text:

cd
cd \test
dir
cd \

If I was to run the test.bat file I created I would have output that looks like the following:
Batch File
Figure 3: Example of a batch file running.
As you can see from the figure above, my batch file executed each command in my batch file in the sequence they were written in the batch file.

Console Programs

If a program is created for express purpose of running within a command prompt, or console window, that program is called a console program. These are programs that are not graphical and can only be run properly from within a command prompt window.
Below is a list of sites that contain console programs that may be useful to you:

http://unxutils.sourceforge.net/
There are many more sites that have tools available. Just do a Google search on windows console programs.

Introduction To Windows Command Prompt - CMD

Before Windows was created, the most common operating system that ran on IBM PC compatibles was DOS. DOS stands for Disk Operating System and was what you would use if you had started your computer much like you do today with Windows. The difference was that DOS was not a graphical operating system but rather purely textual. That meant in order to run programs or manipulate the operating system you had to manually type in commands. When Windows was first created it was actually a graphical user interface that was created in order to make using the DOS operating system easier for a novice user. As time went on and newer versions of Windows were developed DOS was finally phased out with Windows ME. Though the newer operating systems do not run on DOS, they do have something called the command prompt, which has a similar appearance to DOS. In this tutorial we will cover the basic commands and usage of the command prompt so that you feel comfortable in using this resource.

Using the Command Prompt or Dos Window

When people refer to the command prompt they may we refer to it in different ways. They may refer to it as a shell, console window, a command prompt, a cmd prompt, or even dos. In order to enter the command prompt you need to run a program that is dependent on your operating system.

Facebook Covertly Launches A Photo-Sharing App In China

Posted on Tuesday, August 15, 2017 with No comments

Tuesday, August 15, 2017

facebook-moment-colorful-balloons
The Chinese market is no doubt a pot of gold for big technology giants with over 700 million internet users, but the Chinese government heavily controls the Internet within its borders through its Golden Shield project – the Great Firewall of China.
 
Now it seems like Facebook is trying to secretly enter the largest populous market by releasing an all new social networking app in China that does not carry its brand.

Dubbed Colorful Balloons, the photo-sharing app appears to mimic the look and feel of Facebook's Moments, an app that allows its users to share photos with their friends and family members.
facebook-moment-colorful-balloons
According to The New York Times, Facebook approved the release of Colorful Balloons back in May and released it through a Chinese company called Youge Internet Technology, without any affiliation with the social networking company.

China banned Facebook in July 2009, its photo-sharing app Instagram in 2014 and even partially blocked the largest instant messaging platform WhatsApp in July. Since then Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg trying to break into the world's biggest online market.

Zuckerberg has made a number of visits to China in recent years to re-enter in the market, meeting with Chinese government officials and reportedly working on a censorship tool for the country to help it suppress posts from appearing in a particular geographic area.

Colorful Balloons now gives the social networking company a way to get an idea on how Chinese users digitally share information with their families and friends or interact with their favourite social media platforms.

Unlike the Moments app which connects users through Facebook, the Colorful Balloons app links users through China's biggest social network, WeChat.
facebook-moment-colorful-balloons-2
Like Moments, Colorful Balloons has been designed to collate photographs from your smartphone's photo albums and then share them, but in China, it does so with the use of a QR code used by WeChat.

Since the app is currently not widely distributed in the country, it is not clear if the Chinese government is aware of this Facebook's efforts. The Cyberspace Administration of China did not respond to a request for comment from the NYT.

In response to this news, Facebook said it's "spending time understanding and learning more about the country in different ways. Our focus right now is on helping Chinese businesses and developers expand to new markets outside China by using our ad platform."

The Chinese government is likely already reviewing the app in question, which could end up disappearing if the government find anything suspicious.
