I'm not really sold on the WiiU thing, nothing much has improved vs ps360 other than its controller so it could get outdated in a couple of years by ps4 and xbox720. Plus, I need much more information on the WiiU than what's currently available, the price is the biggest difference between success and failure for nintendo and nintendo can't afford another failure just like the 3DS

The Assassin's Creed series has always entertained me, it's combined great graphics, good gameplay, and an interesting storyline. I've rarely gotten bored while playing it so I'm expecting AC3 to do the same :D

It'd be nice to make a summary of the video so people don't have to sit there for 4 minutes watching

Teamviewer is a program where I'm able to control your computer while you sit back and watch. It's quite a slow and painful process if your internet connection isn't that good but I'm able to fix problems for you without any interaction.

I believe your computer is setting priority on your neighbor's router over yours. If you're fine with using teamviewer, I can help.

Hardware / Your router - Part 2
« on: April 14, 2012, 11:41:24 am »
As mentioned in Part 1, you should move electronics between your router and computer so that it won't cause interference. This next part will require that you get into your router's settings and adjust them.
Look for labels on your router, you'll need to find the brand and its model. Next, you'll need to enter these numbers into your browser's address bar. If one of them doesn't work, go down the list:
192.168.1.1
198.168.2.1
192.168.0.1

Next, you'll need to do your own research on login information for your router. I have a small list below but in the event that it doesn't work for you, use Google.
Format: Username/Password(blank = nothing)
root/admin
root/root
admin/blank
root/blank
admin/admin
admin/password
user/blank


After logging in, you'll need to dig around your router's configuration. You'll need to change your Wireless Channel, I have mine on 11 but it may not be ideal for you. You can only set the channels from 1 to 11 however and you'll need to go through trial and error to test which works best for you. Channel 9 works for some people though so you might want to try that one.

Hardware / Your router - Part 1
« on: April 14, 2012, 11:20:59 am »
Many people nowadays use routers to share their internet with others and allow wireless internet access. This has greatly helped many people over the years because it's convenient. Using routers come with a price however...
There are two problems that people have been constantly getting with routers. The first one is that it increases latency, this is a big problem since low latency is crucial for action-packed and fast paced games. The second problem is a port getting blocked, disallowing some programs and games to operate correctly.
The very first process that you'll want to do is to move any electronics between your computer and your router. Things like TVs, microwaves, and phones can cause interference with your router's ability to send out a wifi signal. If you can't do that, move your router or your computer, it's that simple.
If your router is close to your computer, consider buying an ethernet cord to plug into your computer. By doing this, you'll greatly reduce latency and won't have to worry about choppy signal. You might also gain better downloading speeds by doing this too!

All of these programs are free as well with MBAM having a paid version option.

Apps & Software / Top programs that you should have!
« on: April 07, 2012, 10:42:44 am »
Many of us use our computers to do a variety of things, wither it be watching a video on Youtube or chatting with your friends on Facebook. You may run into some computer problems here and there and maybe need some enhancements to your computer. Today I'll be covering the top programs that you should have on your computer.

1) Google Chrome - https://www.google.com/chrome
Internet Explorer 8 and below is off track for today's internet browser standards. Many of us are STILL on Windows XP for a couple of good reasons and Internet Explorer 9 does NOT support Windows XP unfortunately.
Firefox users know that the best advantage they have over Chrome is their large community of plug-ins, extensions, and themes. Chrome is currently trying to be on par with Firefox on that situation, there's already built-in support for user scripts(no need for greasemonkey) and more.
As many of us heard already, Chrome is the fastest web browser available. It caches many things on a website, basically it downloads things like scripts and images that you see on a website and it will reuse it again when you come back to that website, so it stops you from unnecessarily downloading things over and over again, saving you bandwidth too!
HTML5 is increasingly being used by web developers, however there isn't a single web browser that fully supports it. Chrome however currently has the BEST HTML5 support, making it a preferred choice by web developers.
It also has 2 features that's hard to miss out on: Built-in Adobe Flash and PDF Viewer. Those 2 features are a great advantage to using Chrome especially since many websites use Flash. Another thing about Chrome is its security. Google Chrome is mostly open-sourced by now so the techy guys can look on the inside to see any security holes. Surprisingly, Google PAYS hackers to find security flaws and exploit it, further helping Chrome's security.

2) CCleaner - http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download/standard
CCleaner is a program that many people appreciate, it's simple and easy to use. But what is it you may ask? Hopefully you guessed it, it cleans your computer! If you read above about Chrome, it caches many things on a website. Thing is however, you may probably visit a website a couple times to read an article or something then forget about it. That cache continually adds up and can even reach above 1 GB in size. Your computer has lots of junk on it too. CCleaner does the job to remove all of this junk.
It also has a feature to clean your registry which helps your computer go a bit faster.

3) 7-Zip - http://www.7-zip.org/
Many files are compressed into 1 file so that users don't have to install a program but they can extract multiple files from 1 big file and it decreases file size so that the user won't have to wait so long to download something than if it weren't compressed.7-Zip easily does the job and can open many different file formats just like Winrar and even has its own compression format, .7zip which is proven to be better than .zip and .rar formats.

4) MBAM - http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html?part=dl-10804572&subj=dl&tag=button
I'm pretty sure many of us has had a virus, malware, or some sort of malicious program on your computer one time. Some viruses and malware creators have been smart enough to disable anti-virus programs so that leaves you in a situation to bring your computer to a professional which will cost money or reinstall your computer. These things are scary, you forgot to back up your files, you let your siblings on the computer, or maybe you just carelessly downloaded stuff. It just happens, luckily there's an anti-malware program called MBAM. It's highly recommended among many people because it simply does better at detecting and removing malware from your computer versus anti virus programs. In my experience, it seems that updates roll out hourly which makes me feel confident that the developers are hard at work to bring us security. This is something I highly recommend and it's worth paying for the paid version that has real-time protection and more.

5) VLC Media Player - http://www.videolan.org/vlc/
Many people are missing out on a program called VLC Media Player. You may of just used the built-in software such as Windows Media Player to watch videos and such. The problem with Windows Media Player is that it supports a limited amount of codecs and formats. VLC Media Player is far superior to other programs and is free as well! It can play so many different video and music formats and codecs that it feels like there isn't any competition. It has features like playing videos in 16:9 ratio when the video wasn't widescreen. Other great features is that it can convert videos to different formats and it can stream videos off the web. It can play almost any media and that's what I like the most! It's open source and plays on a large variety of OSs(http://www.videolan.org/vlc/#download look at all of that!).
