Apple video tutorial shows you how to get the most from HomePod

One week ago today, Apple finally launched its HomePod smart speaker. Originally scheduled for a December release, Apple delayed the launch because it felt that the device was not ready for prime time. The tech titan put a lot of effort into the speaker, stuffing it with seven tweeters, and a woofer. The HomePod figures out the shape of the room it is stationed in, and adjusts the sound so that it doesn’t overwhelm the listener.

For those who are unaware what they can do with the HomePod, and how to use it, Apple has released a series of video tutorials. Last week, three videos showed …

Apple posts new video tutorial showing you how to use Apple Pay on the iPhone X

When Apple unveiled its tenth anniversary model in September, it was obvious that certain features would require some tweaking due to the replacement of Touch ID with Face ID. One of those features is Apple Pay. With other iPhone models that are compatible with Apple Pay, using the mobile payment service requires a press of the Touch ID button to verify the identity of the person making the payment.

To show iPhone X owners how this is done, Apple has released a 41 second video titled “Apple Pay-How to pay with …

How to take photos of fireworks with a smartphone camera (iPhone and Android tutorial)

Being a photographer in the late 19th century was a job much more dangerous than one might think. Dealing with chemicals was heavily involved, the most spectacular of them being flash powder – the kind of stuff that was lit to illuminate low-light scenes, as you might have seen in movies from the silent era. And by “lit” we mean that the substance was literally set on fire, which resulted in a loud bang, a cloud of smoke, and a bright, fiery explosion. Flash powder is still in use today, but you’ll only find it in fireworks.

Fortunately for those who get bombarded with notifications on a daily basis, there is a relatively easy way to clear notifications on iOS 11, but it’s not immediately obvious and does not work for the most recent notifications. What …

Sony Xperia XZ Premium tutorial: Here's how to enable constant 4K display resolution

Pssst. Pssst! Got a Sony Xperia XZ Premium?
If so, then you’re probably awed by its super-crisp 4K display… that’s actually downscaling content to Full HD 1080p by default. 
Yes, as per Sony, “4K (and 4K HDR with 4K HDR content) is used in the Album and Video apps and third party apps with 4K (and 4K HDR) content. Everything else, so homescreen, apps, menus, etc are shown in Full HD.”

Tutorial To IPhone Hacks

Did you know that one of the first written hacks for the iPhone was completed 5 days after its release? It was creased by DVD Jon notorious for various reverse engineering projects (which means getting details of systems one is not supposed to know). He managed to use all the functions on the iPhone but he did not succeed in hacking the phone so that he could get activated with another carrier so he had to remain with AT&A just for a little bit longer. There were many more people that followed suite and have hacked the iPhone since then with different inventions and methods

Iphone Hacks What Types are there

There are many applications now available to hack your phone for various reasons and they can be classed in the good and bad. You have the ones that help you unlock your phone so that you can use another carrier other than AT&T so that if you have a phone that you want to use outside the USA then you can. Also AT&T pricing may seen too extreme for you. Some people don’t mind using AT&T but want to be able to use other third party applications on their phones which are not supported by Apple. You then have the so called bad hack, this is where people try and hack the iPhone and the Apple system so to be able to get the users private details such as password and personal information.

Hacking terminology – Firmware, Jailbreaking, Brick

There are some basic terms you should be familiar with, which you could have already encountered but are not sure about their meaning.

By hacking your phone it can become inoperable this is where the term brick comes from it means that the hardware has become unusable for one reason or another. This can happen if Apple does an update and Apple applies a new program which disables your hacks rendering your iPhone useless. There are hackers which are constantly writing new programs to try and overcome these problems so that you can recover your phone

The firmware is basically the operating system and programming, the basic and in-depth specifics, which are not available to the everyday user. Apple periodically releases updates that fix former bugs and offers new features, and will possibly work on and stop iPhone hacks. Firmware version 1.1.1. is quite famous for rendering many iPhones useless, turning them into bricks, although a fix was released some weeks later.

The operation system and basic software for the iPhone has been designed do that it can easily be modified. Jailbreak is a kind of iPhone hack in where the owner can gain entry to the inside of the phone and change it structure and thus change it, either to unlock the iPhone or install and run third-party applications not approved by Apple.

How to disable the Adobe Flash browser plug-in

Flash has been found to have multiple zero-day security flaws, which Adobe has been hurriedly patching. But Mozilla Firefox is currently blocking Flash in response, and Facebook’s security chief is calling for an end to Flash altogether. If you really want to keep using Flash, update it immediately. But it might be a better idea to go into your desktop browser settings and shut down this media streaming tool, at least for now. Devices using Google’s Android operating system do not have Flash pre-installed, and of course Apple has long banned Flash from iOS devices, so you only need to tweak your Windows and Mac browsers. Not sure if Flash is installed? Go to Adobe’s Flash Player page and click the Check Now button.

Disable Flash in Mozilla Firefox

Flash is not pre-installed in Firefox, and at the moment Firefox is blocking it by default. But if you have it and want to turn it off longer term, follow these steps:

1. Click the hamburger button (with three horizontal stacked lines) in the upper right hand-corner of the browser window.

2. Click the Add-ons button and then Plugins in the left menu.

3. Go to Shockwave Flash, click the Always Activate button, and click Never Activate. (If you need this plug-in for work purposes, you can also choose Ask to Activate.)


If the version of Flash that’s linked to Firefox is out of date, you can update it using this browser-based tool from Mozilla, which will also check all your other installed add-ons for issues.

Disable Flash in Google Chrome

Flash is integrated into Chrome, so we’ll disable a setting instead of an add-on.

1. Click the address bar at the top of your browser and type about:plugins.

2. Scroll down to Adobe Flash Player and click the Disable link.

Disable Flash in Apple Safari (OS X)

Apple doesn’t put Flash on its iOS devices, but you may have it installed on your MacBook or iMac.

1. Go to the menu bar at the top of the Safari window.

2. Select Safari and click Preferences.

3. Click the Security button, then Internet Plug-ins: Website Settings.

4. Select Adobe Flash Player from the menu on the left.

5. Click the drop-down menu labeled “When visiting other websites” (just above the Done button) and choose Block.

Disable Flash in Internet Explorer 11

1. Click the gear icon in the upper right-hand corner.

2. Select “Manage add-ons.”

3. In the Show drop-down menu, select “All add-ons.”

4. Click the item labeled Shockwave Flash Object and click the Disable button in the lower right-hand corner of the window.

YouTube videos

If you’re worried that you won’t be able to watch YouTube videos after disabling Flash, you can set your browser to use the site’s HTML5 streaming instead. First, go to YouTube’s HTML5 page to see if you’re already using HTML5 by default. If not, click the button labeled “Request the HMTL5 player” to make the switch.
