Marvel Comics superhero ‘Deadpool’ emerges as top downloaded movie torrent in 2016
The year 2016 is coming to an end and like every year Torrent Freak
has come out with the list of most pirated movie torrents for the year.
While 2016 may have been a very bad year as far as torrents community is
concerned the list shows that torrent websites continue to draw heavy
downloads and the interest in movie torrents keeps rising. Deadpool
comes out on top in a list that’s heavily populated by superhero and
comic movies, without any major surprises.
As you can see the foul mouthing and bumbling Marvel Comics superhero
Deadpool came out all guns blazing on the actual box office and
torrents website. In the year which had many superhero releases,
Deadpool stands out as most download movie torrent.
The list points to the fact that top four movie torrent downloads
belong to superheroes and one is an all time blockbuster sci-fi movie.
The top three are ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ and ‘Captain
America Civil War’ followed by ‘X-Men Apocalypse’ and ‘Suicide Squad.’
Animated film ‘Finding Dory’ from Pixar which was the top hit in the
United States and second biggest hit in the world. It was 9th most
downloaded movie torrent in 2016. ‘Independence Day: Resurgence’ is the
7th most downloaded movie torrent despite having a tepid run at box
office. The third largest grossing movie in the world, ‘Zootopia’ is
missing from the top 10 torrent downloaded list.
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.
looks like Windows will adjust its resource allocation logic (for
CPU/Gfx etc.) to prioritize the "Game" when running in "Game Mode"
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.
TOP 1O PAYING JOBS THAT DONOT REQUIRE COLLEGE DEGREE
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.
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
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. Also Read: 29 Highest Paying Programming Languages You Need To Learn In 2017
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
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.
I don’t need to tell you much about freelancing. A freelancer can be
anyone; he can be an app developer, a web developer, a balance sheet
manager, a blogger, a photographer, a graphic designer, etc. There a
plenty of websites where you can find freelancing projects according to
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
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?
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.
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
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
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
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 Katcr.co. 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 Kat.cr. 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
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
At the moment, probably, due to high server load KATcr.co 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
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.
