So here as I sit in my car outside the local laundramat doing a few loads of laundry and courtesy of today’s technology, I am able to update my website and post several articles, all while sitting in my car.
This is a truly amazing ti…
Of course I have had the Chuwi Hi12 for only about 6 days, but folks this thing has a killer battery! The 11000 mAh battery lasts all damned day! I used it at work yesterday morning and then all afternoon and until ab…
If you are running the latest stock WordPress theme which is Twenty Fourteen, you may wish to change the colors on the sidebar and menu areas. The theme is pretty nice stock but it is nice to have a bit of variety.
Today’s testing here at HiBook Labs consisted of installing a program called Flashback 5 Express which is a screen recorder that is rather good. It does full screen recordings rather than some of the older free apps/programs …
We have an HP 3510 series printer at work and occasionally the printer will cease to function. This is because either my HiBook or Hi12 has decided to get a clogged up, (best words I can think of), printer queue.
It is relatively easy to clear the spooler/queue via the command line, but I went ahead and wrote a batch file to do it super fast!
So you can type in the text from the image at the beginning of this post or you can pause the video below. It is a whopping 3 lines and Win 10 will ask you to verify you want to run the file you create. Obviously say yes, or learn how to do it the long way.
Save your file as a notepad file with an extension of “.bat”.
Below is the amazing video, shot on the Hi12 while doing laundry….
That is all,

After more than 35 hours of research and testing, we found that the HP Envy 27 All-in-One is the best all-in-one computer for most people, because it combines ample processing power with a gorgeous 27-inch display in a stylish, compact design. Best of all, it costs less than most of its closest rivals.
The ASUS VivoBook S15 is a laptop that was introduced in May last year and it’s priced at $699 and up. Now it has finally become available on the likes of Amazon and it’s a good deal because it combines a large 15.6 inch diagonal with a compact body. A $799 model bumps the CPU to Core i7.
Unveiled in May, the product is 0.7 inches in waistline and weighs 3.7 pounds. The screen bezels are merely a third of an inch thick and this makes the product feel more like a 14 incher rather than a 15.6 inch notebook. The $699 config involves an Intel Core i5-7200U chipset, plus 8 GB of RAM and 1 TB of HDD storage. There’s also a Core i7 version, with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of SSD storage, as well as 1 TB of extra storage.
Other pluses include a 178 degree view angle, Full HD resolution and the ASUS website says that in the future you’ll also be able to get this device with up to 16 GB of RAM, up to 512 GB of SSD storage and 2 TB of HDD. A more affordable Core i3 model will appear, perhaps with a 768p screen. By the way, connectivity is also modern, thanks to USB Type-C ports, USB 3.0, USB 2.0 and HDMI.
Dual band WiFi is in the mix as well. To me the ASUS VivoBoook S15 with Core i7 at $799 sounds like an excellent deal, especially since it also brings a fingerprint scanner and Windows 10.
Microsoft has sparked a curious squabble over malware discovery and infection rates. At the start of the month security firm Check Point reported on a browser hijacker and malware downloader called Fireball. The firm claimed that it had recently discovered the Chinese malware, and that it had infected some 250 million systems.
Today, Microsoft said no. Redmond claimed that actually, far from being a recent discovery, it had been tracking Fireball since 2015, and that the number of infected systems was far lower (though still substantial) at perhaps 40 million.
The two companies do agree on some details. They say that the Fireball hijacker/downloader is spread through being bundled with programs that users are installing deliberately. Microsoft further adds that these installations are often media and apps of “dubious origin” such as pirated software and keygens. Check Point says that the software was developed by a Chinese digital marketing firm names Rafotech, and fingers similar installation vectors; it piggy backs on (legitimate) Rafotech software, and may also be spread through spam, other malware, and other (non-Rafotech) freeware.
Logitech has a long history of making keyboard accessories for iPad, and it has a new product out in time for the release of the latest iPad Pro 10.5 and 12.9 updates. The Slim Combo, which is available for either size device, includes a back cover case with an integrated Apple Pencil sleeve, and a keyboard that uses the iPad’s Smart Connector.
The two piece approach results in a slim… Read More
