Following too many people means a timeline filled with uninteresting nonsense. And the need to scroll through tweets you have no interest in to get to the good stuff. Which is why Twitter recently started recommending who you should stop following.
Who to Unfollow on Twitter This was spotted by several Twitter users, some of whom took screenshots of the recommendations. Twitter has long recommended “Who to Follow” based on who you’re already following, so this would seem to be the natural balancing force.
Matt Navarra was invited to “improve your timeline by reviewing some accounts you may not need to follow”. Clicking “Take a look” then opened up a list of accounts Twitter thought he could live without. Probably due to a lack of engagem..
Tumblr is updating its community guidelines to tackle certain behaviors. The changes mean Tumblr is cracking down on hate speech, violent threats, and non-consensual sexual content. The new guidelines are set to come into effect on September 10.
While many other social networks have been cracking down on hate speech (with the exception of Twitter), Tumblr has remained silent. However, the staff has clearly decided that now is the right time to change its community guidelines to protect its users.
Tumblr Changes its Community Guidelines In a blog post, Tumblr states it’s changing its community guidelines in order to “keep Tumblr the constructive, empowering place it should be”. Tumblr loves its “diverse, kinetic, passionate communities” but they’re not always easy to police.
Tumblr is acting now as it believe its community guidelines need to “reflect the reality of the internet and social media today and acknowledge that the things people post and share online influence the way other..
There are lots of things you need to know before buying a smart TV. What size do you want? How many HDMI ports do you need? Any extra features that are important to you?
But there’s one question that people often overlook: which operating system should you buy? This article will help you answer that question.
Picking the Right Operating System Is Important It isn’t 2016 anymore. Back then, we were telling readers why you should avoid buying a smart TV. But in the intervening years, a lot has changed.
It’s now almost impossible to find a new TV that isn’t “smart.” Take a trip to your local electronics store, and you’ll be overwhelmed with promises of streaming, casting, sharing, and all the smart TV buzzwords.
But, not all smart TVs are created equal. Much like the world of desktop operating systems, the various smart TV operating systems have their own strengths and weaknesses. Some have a more extensive choice of apps, some have a better user interface, some are more compatible wi..
Cortana is Microsoft’s virtual assistant that helps you improve your productivity. You can use it for many purposes like searching the internet or your computer, finding answers to questions, setting reminders for yourself, and managing your tasks.

Edit and Back Up the Windows Registry For several of these customizations, you must make changes to the registry by adding and changing keys and values in the registry.

Restart the Explorer.exe Process After making the changes to the registry that we talk about here, you must restart Windows Explorer. To do so, press Ctrl + Shift + Esc to open the Task Manager.

You’re in the middle of a Raspberry Pi project, when all of a sudden you realize there’s something wrong: fixing it means editing the config.txt file, which is found in the /boot/ directory.
But what is the easiest way to access this file while the Raspberry Pi is still running? And if you have to shut down to retrieve the microSD card, how should you edit it? Here’s everything you need to know.
Why You Need config.txt on Raspberry Pi
The Raspberry Pi’s default operating system (and most of the alternatives) rely on some configuration parameters that are read when the computer boots from the microSD card. These are stored in the config.txt document, found in the /boot/ folder.
Such instructions might adjust the way the display is detected and the desktop displayed; config.txt can even be used to overclock your Raspberry Pi (or return to default clock settings).
Both of these settings are logged in config.txt as neither can be changed on a running Raspberry Pi. If the display isn’..
Adobe Illustrator is the best program for any kind of graphic design work, whether you’re designing a tiny icon or a huge poster. But creating these things from scratch takes both time and talent.
This is where templates come in. Illustrator templates take the hard work out of your design projects. Just download one, edit it as much or as little as you need, and you’re done. You’ve got a professional looking product in a fraction of the time!

An ultrabook is a type of a laptop computer that is thin and light, has an 11 to 15 inch screen, features a solid state drive (SSD), doesn’t have a DVD drive, and boasts of a long battery life. Generally, an ultrabook costs a bit more than budget notebook computers.
For a good ultrabook in 2018 to run Windows, you shouldn’t settle for anything less than an 8th generation Intel processor, also called Kaby Lake Refresh. This offers a tremendous boost over the old 7th generation Kaby Lake CPU, especially in the Core i5 series as they use four cores instead of two.
You should also not settle for an ultrabook with less than 8GB of RAM. Ultrabooks typically use integrated graphics, which share the system’s memory. And Chrome isn’t getting any lighter. Whether you know it or not, you need that RAM. Also, look for thin bezels for the screen. It shrinks the size of the laptop, which in turn makes it more lightweight.

If you use Outlook, you already know it’s a useful program for managing your email and includes a lot of great features. Today we’re going to cover some lesser known Outlook features that could help improve your workflow.
1. Change the Number of Lines in Message Previews
In the list of email messages, Outlook displays a preview of each message. This includes the sender and the subject line on the first line and then one line from the email message body below that by default.
You can change the number of lines from the message that displays in the list of messages.
Go to the View tab and click the Message Preview button. Then, select 1 Line (default), 2 Lines, or 3 Lines. Or select Off if you don’t want any of the email message displayed in the list.
You’ll be asked if you want to apply this setting to only This folder or All mailboxes.
The number of lines you select does not include the sender and subject line. So if you select 2 Lines, you ‘ll see three lines total: the sender ..
