Like a number of extensions, a new Android web browser blocks Internet advertising. However, filtering out ads is wrong and puts millions of jobs in jeopardy.

I see the same pathetic things posted by so called content creators all the time. Why should i or anyone else care about a failing business model? Why should i pay for the data that toms or any advertiser uses to target me? and to say that people are basically thieving child abusers comes across as massively desperate and childish... i took a career that in hindsight had no future, and that's my problem. you, tom's or anyone else= your problem. Tom's has got worse over the years and i will not return.. good job.

Intel's Core i7-powered NUC Mini PC tested. Impressive performance in a 1-pound, 4-inch box. 
The Intel NUC is a mini PC that delivers a surprising amount of power in a compact and customizable chassis.

I was very excited to attend a developer training session for HoloLens. I learned a lot about how the platform works behind the scenes, including the 5 different types of interaction it allows. Did you know it does Spatial Audio (objects sound louder or quieter depending on how far away they are!)
Microsoft's HoloLens looks like the biggest computing breakthrough in years. Here's everything that's known about the exciting wearable technology, along with what we're still looking to find out.

If you got a Galaxy S6 / S6 Edge, it probably came with its fair share of bloatware. Here's what to keep / toss from the preloaded apps on the major U.S. carriers. BTW, Verizon is the worst, preloading over two dozen pieces of bloatware, including 3 different Candy Crush games, 5 Amazon apps and Uber.
We list all Galaxy S6 bloatware by carrier, recommend which apps to remove and explain why you may want to keep some others.

Security questions, which many websites use as a last line of defense against account hackers, are too easy to guess, Google has proven.

No kidding, I just make up passwords for these. I don't see the point.

I just wanted to call your attention to a new Twitter project I've launched with a few friends. We always have a great time coming up with clever headlines, but sometimes reality hasn't caught up with the best puns. 

That's why we've launched a Twitter account,@futurepuns, to provide the best headlines for events that haven't happened yet. I hope you'll give it a follow and let me know what you think.

Microsoft: Our cloud service can help farmers detect when their cows go into estrus. It's the "hottest app in heat."

Microsoft's annual developer conference keynote was filled with important news, but most of it was targeted at programmers and IT managers. These are 5 important takeaways from Build that everyone should care about.

Fast enough to power two monitors with 20 browser tabs open and 4K video playing the background. Not bad for something that weighs 2 ounces.
The Intel Compute stick is the smallest full-fledged Windows PC you can buy, and it's quite capable for the price.

I read that review earlier. They aren't wrong about anything per se but they are taking the perspective of a very mainstream consumer. I feel inspired to write a response.

The Precision crew did an extremely thorough inspection on the home my wife and I are buying. Owner Hank Jaworowski sent two different people who gave us a very-detailed report with pictures of everything in less than 24 hours, allowing us to move forward with our home purchase with confidence. Precision also has been great in offering free advice after the inspection was over and giving us a free book on how to deal with contractors. We were very satisfied with the thoroughness and quality of the inspection and the friendly, helpful advice we got from the inspectors. They gave us great peace of mind and I would recommend them to anyone buying a home on Long Island.
