Recently, WikiLeaks published over 19,000 emails from top U.S. Democratic National Committee members, then announced it in a tweet. Those emails contained the personal information of many donors, including credit card numbers, social security numbers, and even passport information. Here’s how to see if your personal information was leaked.
Unfortunately, this story is all too real–in fact, it happened to one of my friends just last month.
Windows–especially Windows 10–has a bad habit of installing new updates for hardware drivers whether you want them or not. You could go big and simply prevent Windows from downloading updates altogether, or you might have luck blocking or hiding updates. But if you’ve got the Pro or Enterprise version of Windows, you can tailor your actions a little better by using Group Policy Editor to prevent the installation or updating of specific devices.
Move a file to the trash, empty the trash, or take a screenshot of your Mac’s desktop and your Mac will play a sound. If you’re sick of those paper crumpling and camera shutter sounds, you can disable them by changing a single option.
This option isn’t necessarily where you’d expect it. You might think that the option for disabling the trash sound would be in the Finder’s Preferences window, but it’s not.
You’ve got your collection of Windows ISOs and maybe you’ve burned installation DVDs or flash drives for them. But why not make yourself a master installation drive that you can use to install any version of Windows?

Apple iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S are finally available in stores September 25 2015. But there is no surprise that there are fake iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus available in the markets. These fake iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus are very much similar to the original iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus but still they are not original so they are more harmful than useful as without any warranty they can stop functioning and showing you dead screen, poor call quality and user experience and waste of money.

Advancement in technology in the field of mobile phones has done some tremendous change all over the world. We see every now and then a new handset release over the time with lots of new and improve features. But there is always a negative side of a picture, due to advancement in handset technology the fraud level is also increasing in this market.

Installing software on a Mac is different from installing software on Windows. There isn’t just one way to install applications on a Mac, either — there are several different ways, depending on the application you want to install.
New Mac users will likely find themselves asking a number of questions: Why isn’t every application on the Mac App Store? What is a DMG file, and why do I have to drag-and-drop the app’s icon after opening it?
If you want to insure full Mac compatibility of a new external hard drive or flash disk, you’ll want to format the drive to the Mac OS Extended filesystem. This is particularly necessary for purchases of generic PC drives, which almost always come preformatted to be Windows compatible rather than for Mac OS X.
Many Mac users like to make a bootable installer drive for installing OS X El Capitan, whether for performing a clean install, or for making it easier to install OS X 10.11 onto multiple Macs. We will walk through creating a bootable install flash drive from OS X El Capitan with the final public version. I have discussed the steps to format and create one using DiskMaker X here.
Apple has released OS X El Capitan as a free update to all Mac users. The new version of system software is officially versioned as OS X 10.11, and the final build number is 15A284. Users can start the download now from the App Store using the direct link below.
With OS X El Capitan, Apple has built on many of the changes that were brought on by Yosemite. And as with previous OS X versions dating back to OS X 10.7, El Capitan is only available for install via download from the App Store.
So if you previously relied on DVD installs, you won’t be able to do so with this version. Luckily, DiskMaker X helps fill the void by allowing you to make a bootable OS X 10.11 El Capitan USB install drive, making a task such as installing on several different machines easier.

Your router’s web-based setup page allows you to change various settings — like your Wi-Fi network’s name and password — and view information. You’ll need your router’s IP address to access it.
On Windows, this is called the “default gateway” address. Macs, iPhones, and iPads simply call it your “router” IP address. Other devices may just call it your “gateway” address, or something similar.
Apple’s new Live Photos feature on the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus is really cool, but if you don’t want to share them as full Live Photos or just want them as stills, you can easily convert them in just a few steps.
Live Photos are a nifty innovation Apple recently introduced in iOS 9, allowing users to basically shoot short videos that appear as photos. Sadly, the only way to share them easily is with other iPhone users. Here is how to share them with everyone.
The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are the first iPhones to feature “3D touch“. 3D Touch allows the iPhone to detect how hard you’re pressing, and you can press harder on the screen in some places to do different things.

Blocking website adverts in web browsers has been a hot topic in recent years and there are merits to both sides of the argument. Many sites out there bombard you with tons of ads, and quite often you will feel that you have no choice but to use an ad blocker because either the ads slow down the site loading too much, or they are incredibly annoying and get in the way or distract from your browsing.
