    Putting fitness tech to the test

    in Computers
    It's time to start using your smartphone for more than just music during your workouts. But do a quick search for "fitness" in the app market, and the results are daunting. So, to get you started, CNET's The Fix tested three of the most fun -- and useful -- workout apps available. Run for your life! Or at least pretend to. Donald hits the pavement with two apps that turn the boring run or walk into a zombie apocolypse adventure. Save yourself and civilization, all while torching calories. If you're more of the country club type, Eric shows you how to improve your swing on the golf course....

    “Sticky navigation” describes a navigation bar which appears to stick to the top of the page once a user starts scrolling. It's a commonly used approach these days, as it gives users constant access to site navigation and fixes the site branding firmly in view at all times. Sometimes, however, when a navigation bar is made sticky, there's no allowance made for the fact that it's removed from the document flow, causing an awkward jump as the page content shunts upwards. Today we're going to use jQuery to implement our own sticky navigation, then we're going to use an alternative approach with...

    Set up a new disk on Windows 8.1 or 8 and you’ll be asked whether you want to use MBR or GPT. GPT is the new standard and is gradually replacing MBR. GPT brings with it many advantages, but MBR is still the most compatible and is still necessary in some cases. This isn’t a Windows-only standard — Mac OS X, Linux, and other operating systems can also use GPT. What Do GPT and MBR Do?You have to partition a disk drive before you can use it. MBR (Master Boot Record) and GPT (GUID Partition Table) are two different ways of storing the partitioning information on a drive. This information...

    Windows’ BitLocker encryption defaults to 128-bit AES encryption, but you can choose to use 256-bit AES encryption instead. Using a 256-bit AES key could potentially offer more security against future attempts to access*your files. Is this really more secure? Well, that’s a matter of some debate. You might naively assume that 256-bit encryption offers more security, but it isn’t that clear. Is 256-bit AES Encryption More Secure?Now here’s a complicated topic. The common wisdom is that AES 128 and AES 256 actually offer about the same security. It would take so long to brute-force 128-bit...

    Unknown devices show up in the Windows Device Manager when Windows can’t identify a piece of hardware and provide a driver for it. An unknown device isn’t just unknown — it’s not functioning until you install the right driver. Windows can identify most devices and download drivers for them automatically. When this process fails — or if you disable automatic driver downloads — you’ll have to identify the device and hunt the driver down on your own.

    GEEK TRIVIAThe Strongest Winds In Our Solar System Are Found On? Answer: Neptune If getting your face ripped clean off by a screaming wind storm is on your bucket list, well you’d better start building a rocket. The strongest winds found on any planet in our solar system are found on Neptune. Wind speeds there reach up to 1,340 miles per hour (more than twice the speed of a commercial jet and approximately the same speed as the iconic Concorde supersonic airliner). It would be easy to assume the fastest winds would be located on a hot planet close to the sun, but the chill of Neptune...

    It’s happened to everybody at some point—you go to install a new application, and Windows tells you to reboot first. Or reboot after. Or it asks you to close out of every other application first. Why does it do that? In today’s geek lesson we’ll explain exactly why Windows can be so irritating with all this rebooting, and hopefully give you a better perspective into why things work this way. So Why Are Installers Annoying?The short answer is that most installers are annoying because they either aren’t written very well, or they integrate too deep into Windows to be able to copy system files...

    Where to buy digital textbooks

    in Computers
    Jason Cipriani/CNET We just covered how to save some cash buying used textbooks, but we left out another option you ought to look into: digital textbooks. Digital textbooks may not always be the least expensive option, but they're always brand-new, super-portable, and often full of extra content to help you study. It's unsurprisingly easy to find myriad websites and services offering up digital textbooks, each one claiming to be better than the other. So where does one start? Fantastic question. Apple's iBooks may not offer many college...

    If you're not a fan of Google+, then the ability to call people with your Google Voice number via the Hangouts app was probably not something you cared about. However, Google has now added calling privileges to the Web version of Google Voice. This means that users don't need a Google+ account, just their original Google email log-in, to place calls. Here's how: Step 1: Log in to Google Voice on the Web. Choose Hangouts as your Call with option. Nicole Cozma/CNET Step 2: In the call or text box on the...

    Add multiple time zones to your clock on Windows

    in Computers
    Photo by Nicole Cozma/CNET When you're working with one company or individual in another time zone, it becomes easy to convert your local time to the current time in their country. However, when doing business with multiple companies or people all over the globe, it's best to have a quick reference to see what their local time is. This can help you avoid calling someone at 7 a.m., and instead making the call at a more reasonable hour, like 10 a.m. Windows allows you to set your local time by default, but also has options for enabling two additional...

    Turn off color scheme warnings on Windows 7

    When you're working on a Windows 7 machine, you're likely to come across the following warning: "Do you want to change the color scheme to improve performance?" If you opt to keep the current color scheme and ask Windows to stop showing the message, the computer may not deliver the cooperation that you're expecting. Fortunately, if you want to keep Windows from creating these warnings, there's a quick setting you can adjust to turn them off. Keep in mind: disabling this warning does not mean you are magically freed from the memory restraints of your...

    Manage the home screen on Amazon's Fire Phone

    Jason Cipriani/CNET With the Fire Phone, Amazon took a new approach to the how we interact with a smartphone, from incorporating 3D gestures, to turning the world into a showroom with Firefly, to a new take on the behavior of your home screen. The general approach to the home screen on the Fire phone is similar to what Amazon has done on its Kindle Fire lineup for some time. On the Fire Phone, users are given a main app carousel where recently used and new app icons are displayed, with a home dock just below it. Swiping up on the home dock will...

    Jason Cipriani/CNET Upon unboxing your shiny new Fire phone, you likely noticed the four small dots, one in each corner, on the face of the device. The dots are where Amazon placed specials cameras that track your face whenever you're using the Fire. Using four cameras instead of just two ensures that no matter how you hold the device, Dynamic Perspective will be able to track you. By tracking your face, Dynamic Perspective is able to better apply a 3-D effect to the user-interface across the entire device. Going beyond rotating an...

    By swiveling the device to the right or left, you can reveal the quick actions menu and notifications tray. In order for the Swivel gesture to register, you'll need to hold the phone in a vertical position with one hand. Next, rotate your hand until the top of the phone is nearly perpendicular to the ground. Once the gesture is activated, you can return the phone to a vertical position and select an item from the screen. To close it, either swipe up from the bottom bezel and perform the gesture again. ...

Unlike the iPhone, where Apple dictates how iOS looks and feels, you can personalize your Android home screen or app drawer with almost no effort.
