I spent a couple of hours already figuring out which drivers I would need to install to have my Apple Wireless Keyboard with numeric pad (A1843) to work on Windows 10.
I was able to pair it by just adding the Bluetooth device (as you would do for any other device) but the problem is that I wanted to use the volume up and volume down shortcuts of the keyboard.
Unfortunately Apple does not develop straight forward drivers to have their keyboards to fully work on Windows 10, I guess its too much work?
Anyways, I found a way to make this work and it works pretty well.
Some time back a close friend called me for advice on how to protect his passwords, and more generally all of his digital information. He is feeling overwhelmed by the amount of data he has to remember like passwords, usernames, etc. He knows that if he starts writing down sensitive information on paper, I will kill him. Do not write down sensitive information on paper (If you are not going to properly protect this paper of course).
On this post you will find a list of points that will probably help a lot of people, especially if they didn’t do anything of this yet.
Let me start by saying this: Your information is yours and should never be on the hands of someone else without your knowledge. A lot of people I tried to share these tips with across my life, gave me answers like: “I don’t have anything important”…
What these persons usually fail to dimension is that they are not in general conscious about the amount of data that one accumulates over time and through different services.
Today it might just be some pictures of cats and dogs, tomorrow you start adding family photos, then your bank account access information, and then other more sensitive information.
So it’s better to start securing your digital life as soon as possible, and here are some things you can do about it:
If you ever suffered the pain of someone not being able to share Google Drive files with you because you didn’t have a Gmail account or they didn’t know it. You can create your own Google Account (like the Google identity) but using your own current email account 😉
You will also be able to use all the Google Drive functionalities (Docs, Sheets, etc.) and you will be able to share and receive shares from other Google users. Just ask them to share the document with your existing email account once you opened your account. (more…)
We acquired the Gardena R40Li robot lawnmower as it was on sale some days back and we needed a solution for maintaining our garden.
When I started checking the online videos from Gardena with the installation instructions I couldn’t find a proper YouTube playlists with all the videos together, also, the link to chapter 4 was broken, so I decided to compile all the links in this post so you dont have to waste time finding them if you need them.
You might start seeing a lot of social media posts about #Rewfeed (can go as “RevFeed” too) and how incredible this website will give you USD 250 for free to start investing on their own “Social Media Investment platform”. The main selling point is not only that they will give you the 250 to start for free but that you will pay it back once you reach your first USD 10.000 :). They claim that they invented a “social media analyzer” that lets them predict which companies stock´s will go up or down based on people´s perception.
Sounds sweet right? Actually too sweet to be true. Check the analysis of the scam below: (more…)
Many persons from different parts of the world started to receive a phishing email today with a link to a “Google Doc” that may appear to be sent by someone you know.
The email looks like this:
Logically, you should NOT click on the “Open in Docs” link, but if you did, you would have probably given full access to your email and contacts to the attacker.
