Media Portal is one of the closest alternatives to Windows Media Centre, and one of the slickest Photograph: Media PortalWhat do I need to do to watch a DVD in Windows 10?It was disabled when I upgraded from Windows 7.PC manufacturers normally add it to the PCs that ship with a DVD or Blu-ray drive, often including Cyberlink, Roxio or similar third-party software.Also, Microsoft probably recognised that there was even less point in paying for a DVD player when users either had one already eg Cyberlink or could easily download a free one.Briefly, Windows Media Player is a media player that can rip and burn audio CDs, and sync with portable devices.
Meanwhile, Microsoft is also licensing the Nokia name for handsets back to Nokia, which has set up a new company that will make feature phones, Android-based smartphones, and tablets.Now, Microsoft claims it is not giving up the ghost entirely, even though it is  enabling yet another competitor in the smartphone business.There was no bold vision or explanation of where Microsoft plans to go next in terms of mobile platforms and devices.Plus, Alcatel has actually been acquired by Nokia .What s more, the deal is not likely to reassure app developers, handset manufacturers, or consumers that Microsoft is in the smartphone game for the long haul.At this point, walking away is probably the best thing Microsoft can do.During its second quarter earnings report in January, Microsoft reported that it had sold 4.5 million Lumia devices, down from 10.5 million for the same period a year earlier.In the five years since Microsoft first gave us the Windows phone, the news has been bleak:And in the Kantar market share report for the three months ending in February, Windows Mobile was bleeding market share just about everywhere: down from 4.8 percent in 2015 to 2.6 percent in 2016 in the U.S; down from 9.1 percent in 2015 to 5.8 percent in 2016 in Australia; and down 10.1 percent to 5.9 percent in Europe s five biggest countries.Meanwhile, Windows Mobile was stuck at .9 percent in China, practically irrelevant.Microsoft has been focusing on services and applications that run across mobile platforms lately.This is probably its best hope for maintaining a foothold in the mobile platform game going forward.No doubt, it s a bitter moment for a company that once had such a lock on personal computing — thanks to its Windows desktop monopoly.But the mobile wars have long since become Apple s iOS versus Google s Android.Microsoft can only really move on by admitting that hard truth to itself.
Credit: Adam Patrick MurrayAt Google I/O 2016, the company revealed Daydream, an ambitious new virtual reality platform seemingly designed to rip the premium VR experience away from Samsung s clutches and back into the open Android community.Daydream will still rely on Android phones slotted into a viewer—like Google Cardboard—but the platform will be powered by Daydream-certified phones, running in GearVR-esque virtual reality headsets based on a Google reference design, with software hooks directly in Android N and apps delivered via the Play Store.The initial Daydream designs look suspiciously similar to what Oculus already has on the market, however.Finally, even the basic design of the Daydream reference headset bears a striking resemblance to the Oculus Rift.But that s one hell of a homage.If it ain t broke don t fix it, I guess.
We have all at some time been in a party where the sound is simply not enough. The front is equipped with two pieces of 6.5-inch woofers and two tweeters pieces on either two inches. Around the base elements are a variety of led lamps integrated, which, if you wish, you can light up the room and pulsate to the music in a quantity equal colors. To these should give maximum effect it should be dark in the room, and sure enough it becomes a little club feeling when the lights kicks off the show. Of course, you can connect your smartphone to NTX400: an over Bluetooth but there are also AUX and USB input for playing other external devices, and via the built-in CD player or radio, you can rip files directly to a USB disk. The buttons on the top are obese and consists of shortcuts for source, EQ, sound profile, and so on, and a large knob to adjust the volume with.
Image Source: BlizzardFollowing months of anticipation, Blizzard s new game Overwatch launched this week.Born out of the wreckage of a scrapped project known internally as Titan, Overwatch is a team-based first-person shooter in which players can choose from 21 different characters, each with their own special weapons and abilities.SEE ALSO: Game of Thrones recap: Hodor s heartbreak, and answers to more burning questionsIt s worth noting up front that all three of these gamers happen to be entirely useless, so this isn t the best video to watch for pro tips on how to dominate your opponents in Overwatch.On the other hand, if you want to know how to rip apart a shoddily made Iron Throne replica, this is the video for you:At first, it seemed like Dinklage might have the upper hand, but as soon as the three of them are thrown into a full online game, it becomes obvious just how overmatched they are.Besides, Conan is far too distracted by the shiny butts to actually focus on shooting the other players.Overwatch is out now for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
GIFNothing is more closely associated with upcycling than the lowly, splintery shipping pallet.You can get them for next to nothing and turn them into sweet boxes, benches, light stands, or put the wood towards hundreds, nay, thousands of other projects.Jim Ether s method requires just three tools: a hatchet, a hammer, and a Sawzall.Rather than rip all the boards out one at a time, Ether shimmies the shorter horizontal boards off the supports just enough to fit the blade of the Sawzall in.Cut those nails and you re golden, no mess no fuss.It s a simple trick, but if almost-free furniture is your bag, this is bound to save you lots of time and more than a few injuries.
El Niño was a victim of this hype, always being compared to what came before.But although we saw a few flashes of violent, Godzilla-like destruction, El Niño failed to deliver at its most critical moments, even while working closely with its friend and collaborator The Blob, which passed away earlier this year.It killed coral reefs.It rather thoughtfully delivered some of the warmest Christmas weather in recent memory.Now the US is likely going to see another hotter-than-average summer.Rest in peace, my friend.
As mobile databases go, Realm was already a fan favorite.Now we get an idea of just how popular it really is, as the company notes it now reaches one billion iOS and Android users via 100,000 active developers.It outpaces Parse RIP , Firebase, Azure and Amazon s Cognito for mobile database usage, and the company says it s the fastest growing mobile platform for developers, outpacing attention-grabbers like Xamarin and Unity.High-profile Realm users include Nike, Starbucks, Vine, NFL, Cisco and The US Department of Homeland Security.These figures celebrate Realm s 1.0 release for iOS and Android, a key status symbol for platform maturity and stability.Read next: 5 steps to help traditional companies remain relevant in a startup world
The two-stage rocket will travel just as far as it did earlier this month before the first stage engines give out and it falls back down to Earth—hopefully right smack on a barge in the middle of the Atlantic.So far, SpaceX has been on a winning streak: today s landing could be the third sea-docking success in only a couple of months.It would be the second time the rocket survives reentry to Earth s atmosphere after taking a quick rip 22,300 miles above the equator.And landing is only part of the mission.With the help of its second stage engine, the Falcon 9 will thrust a satellite all the way up to a supersynchronous transfer orbit—an orbit that is slower than the Earth s 24-hour rotational period—the previous launch s geostationary transfer orbit on its way.The Falcon 9 is cradling a satellite that will improve TV and Internet for Southeast Asia, so it needs to be on a particular orbital plane in order to be fixed on that region.

But surely there s a solution that s a little more sane than this $400 Linksys router that looks like it wants to rip my head off?The headline feature is AC5300, a protocol that uses one standard 2.4Ghz channel and two 5Ghz channels to transmit at 5334Mbps.There s also compatability with the new MU-MIMO standard, which is a fancy way of saying that it can establish full-speed connections with multiple users at once.So if you have four laptops simultaneously streaming a couple 4K movies each, your Wi-Fi still won t grind to a halt.Oh, and in case one router isn t enough, it s designed to nicely handle device handoffs between multiple routers, so you can walk from one end of your mansion to the other.There s obvious penalties to having a router this good: it costs $400, looks so aggressive that I think it should ship with a muzzle, and most people s devices and internet connections can t make the most of the fancy new technology.

asks Goldman Sachs in a blockbuster 88-page note sent to clients this week.The financial world has been going crazy for blockchain technology for the last year or so, hypothesising how it could rip out huge amounts of costs for big banks and streamline operations.Goldman itself was one of the key hype men, declaring in December that the technology "can change... well everything."For those not up to speed, blockchain is a database protocol developed to underpin bitcoin.This technology eliminates the need for costly middle men in financial transactions, but also presents plenty of other opportunities for new ways of record keeping and decentralising markets.Goldman's report, titled "Blockchain: Putting Theory into Practice", says that "the discussion often remains abstract," and so is trying to "shift the focus from theory to practice," by looking at real-world applications for blockchain technology.The bank has examined the technology's application in 5 markets.We've summed up its thinking below: View As: One PageSlides

North Korea is perhaps the place on earth that internet connectivity has penetrated the least.Inside the country, unless you're one of a small pool of elites you can only access a country-wide "intranet" - with everything else left inaccessible.As The Register notes, the site appears to be based entirely on the software phpDolphin, which is an off-the-shelf package that lets anyone create their own Facebook clone.Amusingly too, it has since emerged that North Korea didn't think to change the default admin username and password - which has since allowed mischievous hackers to gain access.Which perhaps explains why, at the time of writing, the site is down.Last year we learned that the regime had created its own spyware-infested operated system, based on Linux but in its visuals designed to rip off Mac OS.

Amazon's Prime membership service may have up to 69 million members, according to a note published by Bernstein analysts on Thursday.Amazon launched its Prime service in 2005, and customers can pay a membership fee for faster shipping and access to its Prime Video library.Previous estimates for the total number of Amazon Prime members came in slightly lower.Consumer Intelligence Research Partners estimated in January that Prime had 54 million customers in the US.Bernstein says that the total number of Prime members worldwide is likely between 58 and 69 million.It came to that conclusion using two different methods: Looking at Amazon's revenues and also conducting consumer surveys.The Bernstein note also includes some interesting details on the usage of Amazon Prime in the UK.In the US it costs $99 £68 per year, and it's only $22 £15 per year in Italy and Spain although those countries don't get Prime Video.The high price of Amazon Prime in the UK has been mentioned before: The Daily Mail once referred to it as "The great Amazon rip-off."Disclosure: Jeff Bezos is an investor in Business Insider through his personal investment company Bezos Expeditions.NOW WATCH: Researchers built a robot hand that mimics human dexterity and learns on its ownLoading video...
