Microsoft Developing A Windows 10 “Game Mode” For Maximum Gaming Performance

It was also revealed that the company is working on adding the blue light filter feature.
The Twitter user WalkingCat has spotted another big feature named Windows 10 Game Mode that’s aimed at improving the PC gaming performance.
Just like other features that remain under development, at the moment, this feature isn’t working. But, in the upcoming builds, it’s expected to roll out to the Windows 10 Insider members.
WalkingCat mentioned the finding of a new gamemode.dll in Build 14997.
This feature will, supposedly, let your PCs act like gaming consoles and let you use the machine just for gaming. It’ll be done by adjusting the Windows resource allocation logic (for CPU/Gfx etc.).
This possible feature shows that Microsoft is really serious about gaming on Windows 10 PCs. It’s likely that Windows 10 Game Mode feature will be included in the Windows 10 Creator’s Update.
So, is the gamer inside you excited? Don’t forget to tell us your views regarding Windows 10 Game Mode.

some of us don’t get the chance to attend college. I won’t talk about the reasons because they’re different for different people. There are many people who have a college degree but they want to do something else. Here is a list of some jobs (not arranged in any order) that don’t require a college degree to pay you a hefty amount of money, provided, you know how to do it.


highest paying jobs 2016Programming is a broad term to qualify for a job. But its subsets are the building blocks of many technology companies. In fact, Google hires various developers just on the basis of their skills and fills their pockets with millions of dollars. But getting a job at Google isn’t a child’s play.
If you’re are sound enough with a programming language, for instance, Java or Python, you can easily get a job as a developer. Similarly, there are other career options, like web developer, iOS developer, and Android developer, etc.

Just like programming, hacking is also a vague term in the case of jobs. People who hack stuff with good intentions can find various jobs as security researchers, penetrations testers, bug bounty hunters, etc. A professional degree in computer science and related streams is an advantage, but there are many people who have tasted success without any degree.

Blogger/Content Writer

jobs without degree 2016
People having a flare of writing now prefer blogging as a source of income. All that needs to be done is creating a blog on a platform like Tumblr, WordPress, or Blogger, and start publishing articles. These blogs can include memoirs, travel guides, gadget reviews, etc. Money can be earned by subscribing to services like Google Adsense.
Content Writing involves similar task but it can be considered more streamlined in comparison to blogging. A content writer can work for a company, where he has to write articles about their products or company news. He can also work for some website, where he can write on specific topics, say, sports-related website.

Making money from YouTube isn’t something you haven’t heard. And it doesn’t require any degree, at least, for the time being. People like Pewdiepie, Superwoman, SMOSH, etc, have made millions of dollars by monetizing their YouTube videos. They also became popular in the run.

Professional Gaming

We can find people obsessed with games like DOTA, CS: Global Offensive. eSports is a rising industry which can enable such people to earn money by participation in international MOBA gaming championships.
Keep in mind, this isn’t for hobbyists and casual gamers who rely on the occasional adrenaline rush to play for a couple of hours in a week or so.

Game Tester

You might’ve thought about playing video games at work. What if there is a job which pays you for playing video games. However it’s not just the gaming stuff, you must have a knowledge about computer hardware, programming, etc. Talking about the degree, it depends on the employer if you have computer science degree or not. Many people got a degree in some field but ended up being a game tester.
You can work as a game tester at companies like Electronic Arts. Obviously, someone has to play the games before they are released in the market. Why don’t you become that person?

UX Designer

We don’t have many friends with User Experience Designer in their job title. That’s because this career option is still an unconquered territory. And money people still confuse it with designing the user interface of an app, but it is a very different thing. As the title points out, a UX designer is a guy who takes care of the things that enhance the user experience of a product and gets paid a lot.

SEO and SMO Manager

Search Engine Optimization is a real thing now. Everyone wants their result to be displayed in the top search results on search engines like Google and Bing. So, an SEO manager is a guy who makes sure your website is preferred by the search engines.
Other than search engines, social media platforms also play a major role in promoting content. So, a person is needed to post about your products on different websites including Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc. And the process is known as Social Media Optimisation.

Video Editor/VFX/Animator

It’s hard for a YouTuber to make money if the video isn’t appealing to the viewer. That’s because a bad video won’t get many views which in turn would reduce the monetization revenue. A video editor can also sail on the success boat of a YouTuber. Not only YouTube, a good video editor or animation creator can easily get a fat paycheck at big productions studios. So, if software like After Effects, Premiere Pro, etc are a part of your daily routine, the job is yours.

Super Mario Run Is Finally Released, Here’s How To Download And Play

keeping up with their announcement made at the Apple iPhone 7 launch event, Nintendo has released the game Super Mario Run for iPhone and iPad on December 15, 2016. The game requires an always-on internet connection, just like Pokemon GO, which recently expanded to countries in South Asia along with a special edition Pikachu.
A mandatory internet connection for playing Super Mario Run is an attempt from Nintendo to keep the pirates out of the picture. However, this may limit the number of places where people can enjoy the game.
The game comes in 10 different languages and it’s released in 150 countries over the world. Nintendo touts the game by saying it can be played using one hand. So, you can enjoy the game while you’re on the subway.
Super Mario Run is free to download from the App Store but it only allows you to play the first three levels for free. After this, a $10 (varies by country) payment has to be made to continue the game.
The gameplay has three modes, Toad Rally, World Tour, and Kingdom Builder. You can choose from a total of six runners including Mario, Luigi, Peach, Yoshi, Toad, and Toadette.
Nintendo, in the post-2000 years, has underestimated has the potential of the mobile market. The company was picky enough to favor their own hardware to develop games for their franchise characters including Mario. It was only after Pokemon Go, Nintendo tasted the success fruit in the mobile gaming market.
For Android users, Super Mario Run is expected to release sometime in the year 2017.
After the death of KickassTorrents, the world’s most famous torrent website, a number of fake proxies arrived on the scene. This also helped the other torrent websites gain popularity.
Back in July, we told you about This website was a result of the original KickassTorrents staffers who grouped to build a community website. Then, it didn’t offer any torrent links. Now, a larger group of KickassTorrent employees have launched the website loaded with torrents —
This fully operating torrent site looks similar to the deceased Talking to TF, the KATcr team said that the majority of original KAT site admins and crew have joined the new endeavor. “This shows the loyalty, dedication and real love for KAT that we all share,” he added.
The website is back with a clean user database. Some of the renowned uploaders of KickassTorrents, whom the pirate community trusts, are also back. It’s expected that the website will be soon filled with fresh content.
To keep the member safe, the site was rebuilt and only the safe elements were kept, according to KATcr crew.
The staffers also believe that the original staffers of the website will be soon free and the outcome of the pending legal action will be in their favor.
At the moment, probably, due to high server load is loading very slowly. It’s also possible that some of you won’t be able to load it at all.

How To Install Multiple Bootable Operating Systems on One USB Stick

A bootable USB flash drive comes handy when if you have problems with your operating system,  mostly when you are facing the dreaded Blue Screen of Death screen again and again. The option of having a bootable version of your operating system helps you to isolate the software issues with your PC/laptop. Further, almost all operating systems make it very easy to put ISO files on portable flash drives by using various tools. For example, the Windows USB/DVD tool and the Startup Disk Creator in Ubuntu.
While having a USB pen drive with a single operating system may come in handy if you are a non-technical person, there are many of us out there who need multiple instances of operating systems to test various software. With so many OS available in the market, it is not worthwhile to keep a separate USB pen drive for each and every one of them.  It would be great if you put all the ISO files on one flash drive and take the advantage of installing multiple operating systems through a single multiboot USB flash drive.
So, in this article, we are going to take a look at how you can put multiple ISO files on a single USB stick and create a multiboot USB pendrive. Since most ISOs are resource heavy, your flash drive must but of at least 16GB or 32GB capacity. For instance, putting three Windows ISOs in the multiboot USB disk, you will need a 16GB flash drive.
At the heart of installing multiple ISO files on your USB stick lies a popular tool called WinSetupFromUSB. This tool allows you put multiple ISOs in one installation disk. You can put Windows and Linux in a same bootable disk or create a master boot drive with Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10 operating system.
You can refer this article for installing any version of Windows on PC from USB. Before proceeding with the method, if you don’t have the ISO files for Windows OS, this link would guide you through the process to download them legally.

Now let us get down to the business of installing multiple ISO files of different operating systems on a single USB pen drive.

How to install an ISO file of any operating system on a USB stick

  • Download WinSetupFromUSB and extract the software on your PC/laptop.
  • Connect your USB stick to your PC/laptop.
  • Open WinSetupFromUSB. Open the 32-bit and 64-bit version according to your OS.
  • Select your USB stick from the drop down menu. If the software doesn’t recognise your pen drive, press refresh.
  • Tick Auto format it with FBinst. Remember you have to choose this option only during the first ISO installation.

  • Now click on Advanced options and select Custom menu names for Vista/7/8/Server Source checkbox. Click the Cross (X) button to exit Advanced Options.

  • Now come back to the main screen of the App and select the checkbox of the OS you want to install on your USB stick. Note: If the size of your ISO is larger than 4 Gb, it will show a message to split the file into parts. This is because you’ve chosen the FAT32 option. Click OK.
  • Press GO. That’s it. The software will now format your pen drive and install the ISO that you have selected.

How to install second bootable ISO file of any operating system on that same USB pen drive

  • Start the WinSetupFromUSB tool again.
  • Select your flash drive in the drop down menu.
  • Click Advanced Options and look for Custom menu names for Vista/7/8/10/Server Source.
  • During second ISO installation, kindly uncheck Auto format with FBinst. Enabling this will remove your previous ISO file.
  • Add the ISO file.
  • Click GO and follow the same process.
  • Follow the same process to add more ISO files.
This method will help you create a multiboot USB flash drive which allows you to choose between multiple operating systems you desire. Remember there are many tools you can use to create such multiboot USB drives. Check out the video below to create a multiboot USB stick using Xboot Windows Tool.

WhatsApp to kill support for older smartphone models

The idiom “No pain, no gain” is going to be true for those people who wish to continue using the WhatsApp messaging service, but currently own an old phone handset.
Earlier this year, the ubiquitous messaging app announced via its blog, that it would be dropping support for a range of mobile operating systems by the end of 2016, before updating the page to say some will be supported until June 30, 2017.
The company claim that this move will make the messaging service more secure and keep up with constantly upgrading technology.
“Earlier this week WhatsApp turned seven years old. It has been an amazing journey and in the coming months we’re putting an even greater emphasis on security features and more ways to stay in touch with the people that you care about,” said the company in a blog post.
“When we started WhatsApp in 2009, people’s use of mobile devices looked very different from today. The Apple App Store was only a few months old. About 70 percent of smartphones sold at the time had operating systems offered by BlackBerry and Nokia. Mobile operating systems offered by Google, Apple and Microsoft – which account for 99.5 percent of sales today – were on less than 25 percent of mobile devices sold at the time,” they continue.
The app will no longer work on the iPhone 3GS and all iOS 6 or earlier, all BlackBerry operating systems and BlackBerry 10, the Nokia S40 and Symbian S60, Android 2.1 and 2.2, and the Windows Phone 7.
“While these mobile devices have been an important part of our story, they don’t offer the kind of capabilities we need to expand our app’s features in the future,” the company revealed in a blog post.
“As we look ahead to our next seven years, we want to focus our efforts on the mobile platforms the vast majority of people use,” they added.
However, a recent update on their website reads: “WhatsApp is extending support for BlackBerry OS, BlackBerry 10, Nokia S40 and Nokia Symbian S60 until June 30, 2017.” Therefore, if you have one of these devices or operating systems, you have additional six months to make an upgrade to continue using WhatsApp.
