Amazon's Black Friday Sale Begins: See What's On Offer

We've had our fingers poised over our keyboards long enough in anticipation of Amazon's Black Friday Sale, which went live at midnight and will last until 25 November.

Web Page Background in Windows XP


There are times when we need to visit a webpage frequently. Web pages that inform about score updates of a game and stock rates for a company are good examples. To keep up with it all, we need to open the browser every time we wish to take the glance at the updates. In order to negate this repetitive effort, let us see how to view a live web page as your desktop background in Windows XP.


Adding A Webpage URL as Background:

1. Right-click on your Desktop. Click Properties. Doing so, the Display Properties dialog box opens.


2. Go to Desktop Tab. Click the Customize Desktop… button at the bottom of the dialog box.

3. Another dialog box Desktop Items opens. Go to the Web Tab. Press New at the right of the dialog box.

4. In the resulting box, find and enter the URL of the webpage you want to show as your desktop background. Press OK.


5. Now in the Confirmation window, that opens next, press OK.

6. The synchronization process will start right-away. As soon as the download completes, the window will vanish automatically. So just wait for a second.

7. You will see the Desktop Items dialog box (mentioned in step 3) again, with the URL added.
8. Press OK & then Apply in the Display Properties dialog box to set the webpage as your desktop background.



Editing the Behavior of the URL Background :

The URL background can be made to behave as you wish.

1. Lets go back to Step#7 in the previous section. Press Properties button with the newly added URL selected/highlighted.

2. Now you’ll see three tabs which can be used to define the behavior of the active desktop. Each of them are listed below:

Web Document: You can select to view a page offline by selecting the option marked in the image below.



Schedule: Here you can select to sync the webpage either manually or automatically at a specific time that you choose.

If you choose to sync automatically chose the option “Using the following schedule(s)”. Then press the “Add” button, then define the schedule as per your choice.

Does Amazon's New FireTV Stick 4K Do It All

HDR, HDR10+, Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos... Yup!
It seems like every year a new format comes along to make all our "old" gear obsolete. For audio video afficionados, those latest formats include Dolby Atmos immersive sound, and three different flavors of High Dynamic Range for enhanced picture quality. The three HDR flavors currently on the market include HDR 10 (the most common), HDR10+ and Dolby Vision. Dolby Vision and HDR10+ promise better picture quality than standard HDR 10 by using something called "dynamic meta data." Basically they're able to shift around the required storage bits on a scene-by-scene basis to get the best dynamic range out of movies and TV shows that are encoded in the format.

Should I Buy The Amazon Echo Plus (2nd-gen)?
The new Echo Plus offers a radical redesign compared to the original, ditching the plastic body for a fabric mesh housing that helps the speaker blend into the home environment. It’s not only better-looking either, as a larger speaker and tweeter provide improved audio quality and Dolby Play 360 audio support helps fills the room with music. What’s not to like?

Xiaomi Mi Band 1S Pulse Best-Value Activity Tracker Review

You will not find an activity tracker that offers better value than Xiaomi's Mi Band Pulse. We put the upgraded Mi Band to the test in our Xiaomi Mi Band 1S review.
Should I Buy The Xiaomi Mi Band 1S Pulse?
With a tougher band addressing our issues with the original, and a new heart-rate sensor bringing it into line with rival activity trackers, you quite simply won't find a better-value fitness band than the Xiaomi Mi Band 1S Pulse. It still falls down on social interaction, apps and its use of a proprietary charging cable, but given the price we can accept these shortcomings.
