Luckily enough the other day I went to an event hosted by Samsung/LG/Sony/Panasonic for work and while I was there I got to try out VR for the first time in my life, if you haven't heard or know what VR is then let me explain.

Rainmeter: The easy way to customize your desktop

/ Leave a Comment
hey guys, just here to tell you about this awesome piece of software I have found recently that lets you fully customise your desktop and make it the awesome hub of awesomeness that you have always wanted it to be, the piece of software is called Rainmeter and its absolutely free but it allows you to add all these cool user made widgets to your desktop making it more usable and completely to your liking, I have to admit when I first come across rainmeter I wasn't convinced but when I used it, like oh my god, what you can actually do with it is awesome, it will make you realise that windows isn't as good (from a desktop point of view) as it makes out to be.

 You can have all the info about your PC on the desktop with real time meters or have buttons that open certain programs all just a click away, The real beauty of it is that all of the content on it is fully customisable so if you know a tiny bit of coding then you can easily edit the fan made content to your desire, if not then there is a dozen things available for download on the deviantart site for rainmeter, think of your desktop not as a desktop with rainmeter you can turn it into a fully usable interactive environment!

If you really like customization and want to go past the standard windows way of doing things then go and download rainmeter now and see how good your desktop can actually be, below is a video I found showing you what power Rainmeter has.

Cyberghost The free IOS app to improve security

/ Leave a Comment
Hello there people! as some of you may know I am a huge security buff when it comes to online things, I cant stand not having my accounts secured and me being in control of all of them, so a little over a year ago I delved into the world of VPN's, the reason behind this was because as I feel our world becomes more entranced with technology that we must at least have some form of privacy online which surprisingly enough most people think they do but they actually dont, it's very easy for someone to "sniff" out your passwords from just using public wifi. This led me to do some research and I came across Cyberghost VPN. I have used it for just over a year now and can honestly say that its the most useful tool on my PC, you could only imagine my excitement when I got an email through saying they were making an IOS app!




Now iphones have always been quite secure but I never actually thought of the stuff that could be found out through browsing and what data could be public, long story short I managed to get into the beta for the app. The app is basically a VPN for your phone with a lot of cool added features:


  • Secure Wifi Hotspot - Allows you to block access to hackers from accessing sensitive data       while out and about on free wifi
  • Secured Streaming - Gets you secures access to all streaming sites like Youtube, Pandora, Hulu wherever you are no matter what country 
  • Surf anonymously - Allows full anonymity online hiding your IP and making you invisible
  • Save money - Reduces your carriers cost by compressing and caching all info and data coming into your phone



The GUI (Graphical User Interface) is really easy to use as well, so someone who doesn't really know what to do can protect themselves as it is all clearly laid out and easily accessible, just a couple of swipes hit Start protection and you are off, simple as that, you can go a bit deeper under the bonnet and change the setting of countries your IP is routed through and stuff like that if you want to so it does satisfy the nerds out there as much as the casual user! Theres even little achievements that you get rewarded for doing things like being protected on 5 public wifis etc. One cool thing is that you can set it so it will automatically protect all of the wifis you connect to making it a lot simpler of a process then going through the app, it will run only when it needs to and protect you. It even has built in virus and malware protection.


As with most things these days though there is a paid part of this app, its not a heft price by no means but it does unlock all of the features mentioned above for full use so I would heavily recommend upgrading, it costs £22.99 for one whole year and to be honest thats not bad for full IOS protection.

The wrong way to be healthy

/ Leave a Comment

Now as with everything in life there are two sides to everything and healthy eating/fitness is no objection to that case, there are many ways in which you can lose weight that are good for your body and your mind, but with every good there is also a bad, yes there is a bad way that you can lose weight, yes you might see results but I promise you you're  not doing your body any good. Now first I will start off on a nice note about a good way to lose weight, basically eat within your daily calorie amount (reduce it by 100 or 200 if needed) and exercise more than you have done in the past, basic stuff really work more than you used to and your body will adapt. This is by far the best way to lose weight as you are not shocking your body into anything which is wrong.
