By Michael Kan

Do you have dreams of sideloading a third-party app onto your iPhone? Apple is here to crush them. On Wednesday, the company released a 16-page document talking up all the privacy and security benefits to Apple’s “walled garden” approach with the iOS App Store.

Google’s Chrome browser has a ton of hidden tricks you may not know about. Here are some helpful tips to make you a better Chrome user.

By Jason Cohen

If search engines are our windows to the internet, web browsers are the frames. A good browser should support basic search functions, but the most popular services act as their own operating systems for accessing the web. These days, no browser is more ubiquitous than Google’s Chrome browser, which has about 65% of the market.

While there is still plenty of debate over which web browser is the best, there’s a…

Rounded corners? Centered Start button? Tiny taskbar icons? No, thank you.

By Michael Muchmore

I’ve never been one of those PC users who laments change and rejects new desktop operating system features. I’ve cheered Microsoft’s Windows evolution, even finding things to like about the much-maligned Vista and Windows 8, with its tiled interface. But if leaked screenshots are to be believed, Windows 11 may be a no for me.

I don’t care about rounded corners. I don’t want the Start button in the middle of the screen. I like the way the Windows 10 Taskbar is highly functional and informative…


With its latest addition to its FidelityFX graphics suite, AMD brings performance-enhancing supersampling tech to the masses, but with a key difference: support for both AMD and Nvidia GPUs.

By Chris Stobing

For almost three years, Nvidia’s DLSS (its acronym for “Deep Learning Super Sampling”) has been a pioneer in back-end techniques for conjuring faster PC-game frame rates out of what seems like thin air. Driven by what Nvidia calls its “Tensor” cores (found in every graphics card bearing the GeForce RTX badge), DLSS can dramatically improve the frame rate in games that are specially trained to use it. …

By Michael Kan

Microsoft has filed copyright complaints to remove leaked download links for Windows 11.

The company filed the DMCA takedown notices with Google, according to Lumen, a website that tracks copyright complaints.
