    Monitor powering on but now showing any display

    You have the screen enabled in Mac display settings? Also, your back light might be dead. Does it work on another computer, perhaps? Just to verify. Very unlikely, but the adapter or HDMI cable might be dead.
  5. If Settings were any useful. It is such clutter mess lacking visual cues, horribly designed. Even Android and iOS didn't go this stupid.
  6. Typically, Oppo releases a new OnePlus phone, then once the "beta testers" (ie customers) report back the bugs, they get fixed, Oppo jacks up the price, throws a few new features in, and releases a new Oppo phone

  11. Windows 10 build 18965 rolls out to the Fast ring with a single new feature by João Carrasqueira With a new week comes a new build of Windows 10 for Insiders in the Fast ring. Last week's release was on Friday, so this week the build number is only increasing slightly with build 18965. Build 18963 introduced a few changes last week, including the ability to update the Notepad through the Microsoft Store. As for this week's build, there's not a lot that's new. The only notable change is a new option in settings to let apps be restarted when the user signs out and back in again: Control over restarting apps at sign-in As some of you already know, apps have the ability to register for restart, which helps in a few situations, including enabling you to get back to what you were doing if you need to restart your PC. Previously this option was tied to the “Use my sign-in info to automatically finish setting up my device” option under Sign-in options in accounts settings. We’ve heard feedback that some of you would prefer more explicit control over when Windows automatically restarts apps that were open when you restart your PC, and with 20H1 we’re bringing that option to you. Windows now puts you in control with a new app restart setting. When turned on, Windows automatically saves your restartable apps when signing out, restarting, or shutting down Windows, and restarts them next time you sign in. This setting is off by default and you can change it any time in Settings > Accounts > Sign-in options, and can find it by searching for “restart apps” in Start or the search box. In addition to that, Microsoft has officially announced some UI changes to the Feedback Hub, which were reported over the weekend. There's a new UI for feedback search, new options for reporting similar feedback, and a new achievements page: The Feedback Hub team has been hard at work lately to bring you some app updates based on your feature requests, and we have a few changes and improvements to share about the latest version that’s currently rolling out to Insiders in the Fast ring. Feedback Search UI updates On the Feedback section of the app, you will now be able to more clearly see the differentiation between Problems and Suggestions, with each showing an icon, color, and labels Problem or Suggestion displayed above each feedback entry. We also have updated iconography and displays for Adding similar feedback to problems, upvoting suggestions, and adding comments to feedback. Adding similar feedback In the past, Feedback Hub allowed two kinds of participation on feedback: upvoting and adding more details. The notion of voting on Suggestions makes a lot of sense – engineers at Microsoft want to know which features the community wants us to build next, and voting on feature suggestions is a great way to see where your interest lies. However, voting on Problems was trickier – roblems are not a matter of popularity, and what helps engineers here resolve problems is having clear descriptions of how the issue arose. Feedback is especially helpful if it includes a reproduction of the problem, diagnostics that help our teams pinpoint what went wrong so they can fix issues faster. Voting on the search page often did not provide enough detail as to what was happening, and we saw that few people went into existing feedback to add their personal reproductions of the issues. With the new Add similar feedback feature, selecting a problem with symptoms that match your own will take you to the feedback form, with the title pre-filled. You edit the title or add your own description to let us know exactly what was happening when you encountered the problem. We’ll already have your category selected to ensure the right feature team sees your feedback, and in our new Similar Feedback section, the feedback you selected will already be selected. As usual, the last step involves optionally adding your own reproduction of the issue or any attachments you like. Windows Insiders Achievements We are excited to announce a refresh of the Windows Insider Achievements page. We’ve made achievements more discoverable by moving them from your profile page to their own landing page, and we added additional features that allow you to categorize and track your progress. Be sure to check it out today and begin unlocking badges. We would love to hear your feedback on social media by using the hashtag #Builds4Badges. The information previously found in your profile (Device ID and User ID) is now located in the settings section of Feedback Hub. As always, we appreciate your feedback – if you have any suggestions or problems to report, you can share them in the Feedback Hub under Apps > Feedback Hub. The relatively small changelog is to be expected, since last week's release came on Friday and the build number is only slightly higher. It's also worth noting that we're still a ways off from the official release of Windows 10 20H1, so many features are likely to be added later on.
  12. Here's what's fixed, improved, and still broken in Windows 10 build 18965 by Rich Woods It's Wednesday, meaning that it's time for a new Windows 10 Insider Preview build in the Fast ring. Today's build is 18965, and as usual, it contains a small array of minor new features, such as giving users more control over apps that restart at sign-in. But as always, there's a long list of fixes, improvements, and known issues to be aware of. Here's what got fixed and improved in build 18965: We fixed an issue resulting in the screens shown while updating Windows unexpectedly saying “managed by your organization” for some Insiders. We fixed an issue resulting in the taskbar unexpectedly hiding sometimes when launching the touch keyboard. We fixed an issue where some of the colors weren’t correct in Language Settings if using High Contrast White. We fixed an issue that could result in background tasks not working in certain apps. We fixed an issue where if you set focus to the notification area of the taskbar via WIN+B, then opened a flyout and pressed Esc to close it, then the focus rectangle would no longer show up correctly anymore. We fixed an issue where on the Bluetooth & Other Settings page, the device type wasn’t read out loud when using a screen reader. We fixed an issue resulting in help links not being accessible when adding a new wireless display device on the Bluetooth & Other Settings page if the text scaling was set to 200%. Here are the known issues: Insiders may notice a new “Cloud download” option in the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) under “Reset this PC.” This feature is not working quite yet. We’ll let you know once it is, so you can try it out! There has been an issue with older versions of anti-cheat software used with games where after updating to the latest 19H1 Insider Preview builds may cause PCs to experience crashes. We are working with partners on getting their software updated with a fix, and most games have released patches to prevent PCs from experiencing this issue. To minimize the chance of running into this issue, please make sure you are running the latest version of your games before attempting to update the operating system. We are also working with anti-cheat and game developers to resolve similar issues that may arise with the 20H1 Insider Preview builds and will work to minimize the likelihood of these issues in the future. Some Realtek SD card readers are not functioning properly. We are investigating the issue. We’re working on a fix for an issue resulting in the minimize, maximize, and close title bar buttons not working for certain apps. If you’re using an impacted app, Alt+F4 should work as expected to close the app if needed. Some WSL distros will not load (Issue #4371). We’re investigating reports that DWM is using unexpectedly high system resources for some Insiders. There’s an issue impacting a small number of Insiders which started on the previous flight, involving a lsass.exe crash and resulting in a message saying, “Windows ran into a problem and needs to restart.” We’re working on a fix and appreciate your patience. As always, the issue with anti-cheat software isn't going away. It's just a question of when Microsoft will stop talking about it. This relies on third-party game-makers to update their games, and most of them have been fixed. Also, sadly, the cloud download feature that's been widely reported on at this point still doesn't work. The feature should allow you to factory reset device with Windows automatically downloading the image. As always, you can get today's build through Windows Update. If you're not on the Fast ring yet, you can join through the Windows Insider Program tab.

  15. Some Surface Pro 5 and 6 users are reporting battery degradation issues by Rich Woods Microsoft's Surface Pro lineup is no stranger to having battery issues, going all the way back to 2014's Surface Pro 3. It seems that the Redmond company hasn't quite gotten it right yet though, as some users are reporting battery degradation issues with the Surface Pro 5 and 6 now, according to some posts on Microsoft's Answers forums. The reports vary in what's actually wrong, but it all adds up to batteries that just aren't working properly. One person said that their device showed 0% battery while on the charger, and that performance was sluggish because of it. Another believes that the battery is down to 30% of its original capacity despite going through only 309 charging cycles, while yet another claims that capacity is at a tenth of its original design after two years and 307 cycles. Of course, this is a significant issue for devices that really aren't that old. After all, the fifth-generation Surface Pro (now commonly referred to as the Surface Pro 5) was only released in May 2017, making it just over two years old for those that bought it when it was new. The Surface Pro 6 was only announced in October, less than a year ago. Microsoft has yet to address the issues, but presumably, there will be a firmware update to help mitigate some of the issues. At least some of these devices should be under warranty, and if the past is any indication, the company may end up extending the warranty for those with defective batteries.
  16. I wish I could do it with my Note 8, for the simple reason that I'd like to be able to use my phone without picking it up. Your Phone is alright but the implementation isn't perfect and it's hard to use a phone with a mouse and keyboard, if I could use DeX that would be way better.
  17. Aside that sign-up bonuses are pure time-limited gimmicks, based on the nature of this card the rewards are not set in stone. For instance, they've added Uber and Uber Eats to the 3% rewards bucket. I easily see them executing various promotional offerings as well (maybe Lyft in the 2-3% bucket, or Lime scooters/pods in this bucket)... or whatever they bloody hell want to spruce up broader uptake and/or usage. The "lame" programs are all those who do not improve the rewards but instead require you to sign up for a new card just because the old card's reward program didn't include a particular brand or type of reward option! That's 100% bull!

  19. MSI announces new laptops with hexa-core Comet Lake processors and GTX 1650 graphics by Rich Woods Prestige 15 On the heels of Intel's 10th-generation mobile processor announcement from the Comet Lake family, MSI is unveiling new laptops that use the new CPUs. The trio of laptops include the Prestige 14, Prestige 15, and Modern 14. MSI says that the new laptops offer up to 40% better photo editing and rendering speeds, due to the Core i7-10710U that's offered. The CPU is the first hexa-core processor from the U-series. All of the new laptops offer dedicated graphics as well, in the form of an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 with Max-Q Design in the Prestige models and an Nvidia GeForce MX250 in the Modern 14. Both of the new Prestige laptops offer a 90% screen-to-body ratio, along with an option for a 4K display. They come in a sandblasted aluminum body that weighs in at 2.84 pounds and 3.64 pounds for the 14- and 15-inch models, and according to MSI, you'll get 14 and 16 hours of battery life, respectively. The Modern 14 weighs in at 2.64 pounds, with a metallic Carbon Gray body. MSI is promising up to 10 hours of battery life on that one, with its Full HD display. MSI didn't provide pricing on its new laptops, but pre-orders will kick off on Newegg today. They'll be available from Adorama, Amazon, B&H, and Newegg.

    Amazon Music arrives on select Garmin smartwatches

  21. Microsoft launches Web Template Studio 2.0 with support for Angular, Vue, and more by João Carrasqueira A few months ago, Microsoft launched Web Template Studio in preview form, giving developers a new way to create full-stack web apps with Visual Studio Code. The Microsoft Garage project had limited support for web frameworks at first, but today, the company announced an update that addresses that. With Web Template Studio 2.0, Microsoft is adding some new capabilities to WebTS, starting with support for Angular.js and Vue.js as front-end frameworks, whereas only React was initially available. As for the back-end, in addition to Node.js, you can now use Flask. In terms of services, in addition to storage services courtesy of Azure Cosmos DB, it's now possible to use cloud hosting thanks to the newly-added support for Azure's App Service. This release also includes some design tweaks and minor improvements. When creating a new project, details such as the name and destination path will be automatically filled in for you, and there's also a new Quick Start pane which lets users see all the steps in the creation wizard at once. Changes have also been made to the "Add Pages" step and the final creation step, which now lets you review project details before finalizing it. If you want to try the new version of Web Template Studio, you can get it from the Visual Studio Marketplace. Note that you'll need Node and Yarn to be installed as well for it to work. If you have any feedback on the tool, you can make your contributions to the project on GitHub.

  23. Vivaldi 2.7 available with better sound controls and improved macOS stability by Paul Hill Vivaldi Technologies boss, Jon von Tetzchner, has announced the availability of Vivaldi 2.7. The new update brings a host of usability improvements including the ability to mute tabs before the sound even starts, quicker profile switching, an option to enable Flash, a more informative Status Bar, and improved stability on macOS. Vivaldi is by far the most advanced web browser on the market, especially since Opera became Chromium-based several years ago. With Vivaldi 2.7, the list of features only continues to grow, one change is the ability to mute tabs before audio or video even begin playing. This feature has been heavily requested by the Vivaldi community and now its users won’t be unnecessarily irritated or surprised by unwanted audio. The new muting feature joins a list of comprehensive tab muting options that include ‘Play All Audio’, ‘Play Online In Active Tab’, and ‘Prioritize Active Tab’. With Vivaldi 2.7, you can also ‘Mute other Tabs’ by clicking on any background tab in the Tabs Bar or Window Panel, with only your active tab playing sound. Vivaldi 2.7 also brings improvements to user profiles. With this update, you can create desktop shortcuts for a specific profile making it quicker to access. A checkbox to create a desktop shortcut can be found in the user profile menu. Unfortunately, this feature is only available on Windows for the time being so macOS and Linux users will have to wait. Other changes in this release include optional Flash support for websites that require it; the plug-in can be enabled under Settings > Webpages > Plugins. The Status Bar has been made more informative too - it now tells you what’s happening in terms of the page loading. Some status messages it shows include “Processing request”, “Waiting for”, “Connecting”, and “Establishing secure connection”. The last major improvement is macOS stability improvements. Stability on macOS was noted as a “long-standing issue” so now could be a good time to check in on Vivaldi again if you use the operating system.

    Gmail adds spelling and grammar correction tools for G Suite

    A serious, curious question... What specifically do you like better about gsuite compared to the free Microsoft Office Online? 1. For the e-mail component I can easily set up *@mydomain.ext to route to [gsuitelogin]@mydomain.ext. So that any user @ mydomain that isn't actually an e-mail account on my Gsuite will automatically get sent to my actual Gsuite e-mail. So I can use website specific e-mails in case spammers get ahold of one. Eg ... when registering an account on SuperForum I would put SuperForum@mydomain.ext Also, each person I give my e-mail address to gets a unique address. I never use the same address twice. Then if one gets leaked to a spammer list or otherwise is part of a breach I set a filter to delete all incoming mails to that address that are not from the website or person I disclosed it to. Plus since I use a Pixel 3 XL and use Chrome as my primary browser there is just general tighter integration with Google ecosystem offerings. Thanks for the reply. I guess I was looking for something unique or a specific feature that only exits on Gsuite/Gmail/Google. For example, the email handling you are describing is not unique to Google, and handling multiple @mydomain.net address and wildcard addresses was around before Google and has been a part of hotmail/live/outlook for nearly 20 years. (Specifically the years Microsoft was pushing @live.com email addresses, the feature promotion was to highlight handling email from external addresses in ways that GMail sill doesn't offer. If you weren't already invested in GMail and were asking for advice, I would recommend looking at outlook.com, as it does more of what you are doing easier.) The phone integration is a reasonable consideration. However, I also wonder about Microsoft throwing software and features at Android and iOS. A less Google invested user could make a counter argument and possibly get even better/more integration by using Edge, Launcher, OneDrive, Outlook, Office, etc. on even the Pixel 3 XL. The Microsoft direction right now has more consistency and sync/integration features from phone to PC to Mac to iPhone than Google with specific OS integration and native software/Apps for each platform (with more Linux software coming this year). In contrast, Google's common tool for integration on other platforms is based primarily on and around Chrome instead of native support that has advantages. Going back to GSuite, Microsoft has full offline applications in areas Google does not, like Office and other critical Apps for MS services/features, which also are designed to work even when connectivity isn't available. Even OneDrive provides as much functionality as it can when offline, and by nature it is an online service/product. ---- I do appreciate the response. What I typed here is more of me trying to understand out loud, rather than dismissing or countering what you posted. Thanks.
