How To Restore Your Mac To Default

Feel like you need a clean slate? Whenever you want to, you can restore the factory settings on your Mac. This means erasing all your data, everything you’ve done on the computer, and reverting it back to just like it was when you took it out of the box

Here is the simple process to do it quickly.

Why would I want to do this?

Ordinarily, losing absolutely everything unique on your Mac would be cause for concern and possibly thrown keyboards. But there are scenarios where a full wipe and restore session can prove valuable. The most common is when you want to sell your computer as a used device through someplace like eBay or Craigslist. No buyer is going to want a computer with a hard drive full of someone else’s data, so resellers typically work to reset the computer.

Hike’s New Update Brings Chat Search, New Themes, and More Checkout !

Hike, a popular messaging app, has released what it claims to be its ‘biggest update ever’, bringing the app version up to 4.0. The firm also announced that it has crossed the 20 billion messages per month milestone. It also claimed that the number has doubled in less than a year, since the previous announcement of 10 billion messages per month in August last year.

Hike 4.0, which is already available for Android users via Google Play, is claimed to be five times faster that its previous versions and is “designed for the next billion Indian consumers”.

August 27 1883 – Krakatau explodes

The most powerful volcanic eruption in recorded history occurs on Krakatau (also called Krakatoa), a small, uninhabited volcanic island located west of Sumatra in Indonesia, on this day in 1883. Heard 3,000 miles away, the explosions threw five cubic miles of earth 50 miles into the air, created 120-foot tsunamis and killed 36,000 people.

Krakatau exhibited its first stirrings in more than 200 years on May 20, 1883. A German warship passing by reported a seven-mile high cloud of ash and dust over Krakatau. For the next two months, similar explosions would be witnessed by commercial liners and natives on nearby Java and Sumatra. With little to no idea of the impending catastrophe, the local inhabitants greeted the volcanic activity with festive excitement. Continue reading “August 27 1883 – Krakatau explodes”

Android Pattern Lock Is Highly Predictable ! Here Is The Solution

We’re pretty terrible at coming up with good passwords, but if you thought we were better when it comes to Android lock patterns, you’d be wrong. New research shows that the tic-tac-toe style patterns people devise to unlock their phones often follow dismally predictable rules.

Android Lock Patterns (ALPs) can contain a minimum of four nodes and a maximum of nine, for a total of nearly 400,000 possible combinations. That’s a lot of potential passwords! But when Martle Loge of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology analyzed over 4,000 ALPs for her master’s thesis, what she found was a pretty sorry state of affairs.

A full 44% of ALPs started in the top left-most node of the screen, while 77% started in one of the four corners. Very often, patterns moved from left to right and top to bottom. And a large percentage of the patterns had only four nodes, dramatically shrinking the pool of available combinations.

All New MisFit

The Misfit Flash Link is basically a Misfit without a wristband. It’s only $19.99, making it one of the least expensive fitness trackers on the market. You can track activity like steps and miles, set fitness goals, and—new to Misfit—control music, take selfies, and flip through slide presentations by pressing its button. Those new features will be made available across the rest of the Misfit wearable line like the original Flash and the Misfit Shine, but for now they’re only on the Link. And the new Misfit Link app is also iOS-only; an Android version is promised in the future. But if you have an iPhone and want to dabble in self-quantification, but don’t want to spend more than a night at the movies, you’ll find a lot to like in the Flash Link.
