YG - 4REAL 4REAL Music Album Reviews

YG pays heartfelt tribute to the late Nipsey Hussle on his latest while still reserving plenty of vitriol for his favorite targets: broke dudes, snitches, broke dudes who also snitch.
In 2015, YG survived a shooting at a Los Angeles studio. His resulting paranoia birthed 2016’s belligerent Still Brazy, and the effects lingered through his last album, 2018’s chest-thumping Stay Dangerous. “I’m the man, bitch, I walk ‘round like I’m bulletproof,” he rapped, sounding like a man possessed. After surviving an attempt on his life, in what he believed to be a set up, his message was clear: He wasn’t going to be caught with his guard down again.

Windows 8 Updates: Apps Not Included


If you’ve been using Windows for a while, you know that Windows Update is the place to go to update your windows software. Previously, I covered the importance of checking Windows Update for windows 8 users frequently the first few months. Thanks to one of our users, Ron, who commented on that story, I was prompted to investigate the statement he made: that pre-installed Microsoft Apps will not be updated in Windows Update, but rather, only in the Store interface.

Low and behold, Ron was spot on: Apps pre-installed as part of Windows 8 will not show up in Windows Update. Now, this may sound like an obvious statement, as many third party programs are not in Windows Update for previous versions of windows. The odd part is, Microsoft applications installed in Windows 8, such as Mail, Camera, Photos and other built-in features of Windows 8, were considered parts of the operating system before and not stand-alone applications that needed separate downloads.


So how do you update these programs? The good news is it’s pretty easy. From the windows 8 interface, select Store (you can also click the windows button/start button on your keyboard and type store to find the store). In the upper right hand corner, you should see Updates (XX) if there are updates available. The number between the parentheses will tell you how many updates are available.


Once the app update interface opens, you’ll see a list of apps with updates. You can click on the apps to check/uncheck apps you want to update.  Once you’re done selecting apps to update, move your mouse to the bottom of the screen and click the install icon.


Once you click install, you’ll be presented with progress bars for each app, and once it’s done updating, the app will disappear from the list.


I hope that Windows Update is changed in the future to mimic the “Apple way” of doing updates, where all system and program updates are under a single interface where you can easily select updates from. If someone from Microsoft is reading this, it would make a great feature of Service Pack 1 of Windows 8.

Huawei MateBook 14 Review

The MateBook 14 is one of Huawei's new laptops for 2019 and is the perfect all-rounder. Find out why in our full review.
Should I Buy The Huawei MateBook 14?
The MateBook 14 might be a slightly chunkier and heavier version of the flagship X Pro, but the weight is a small price to pay considering that this laptop is a much cheaper option.
What you lose (or gain, really) in weight, is made up for by additional ports, better performance and longer battery life. You only really need to pass on this if Thunderbolt is an absolute must.

Highly impressive QLED picture quality along with the all-encompassing Smart Hub combine to make the Q70R a great choice if you can’t justify spending a whole lot more on the Q90R.
