  7. How Game of Thrones Made Piracy History The final episode of Game of Thrones marked the end of one of the biggest piracy topics in history. The show made dozens of piracy headlines over the years, ranging from prominent leaks, to a mind boggling record that's unlikely to ever be broken. Traditionally, the Game of Thrones season finale is among the most viewed episodes, also on pirate sites. When the entire series comes to an end, interest is only heightened. This is what happened indeed. While many people have been rather critical about the story-line of the final season, millions of people ‘tuned’ in, both through authorized and unofficial channels. The official ratings shot through the roof, with 13.6 million US viewers during the official airing, which is also a new all-time record for an HBO show. On pirate sites, there was plenty of interest as well. Millions of people pirated a copy. At the height, yesterday afternoon, more than 200,000 people were actively sharing the three most popular torrents, with the most popular one being good for 130,000 sharers alone. While this is a massive number, it’s nowhere near the all-time record. That dates back to 2015, when over a quarter million people were simultaneously sharing a single file. This drop is in part because the piracy ecosystem has evolved. Torrent sites used to be the main distribution platforms for pirated TV shows, but unauthorized streaming sites are much more popular today. These sites don’t make any viewing numbers public but are good for millions of ‘pirate’ views as well. With this in mind, it is likely that the record of the largest BitTorrent swarm in history will never be broken. The end of Game of Thrones wraps up one of the biggest continuing stories in file-sharing history. The HBO show was as crowned the “most pirated” TV-series for several years, and is likely to scoop up this title again in 2019, to secure its place in history. Aside from the impressive numbers, Game of Thrones was also at the center of other piracy-related news and discussions, much of which we have discussed in detail here. One key theme that reappeared year after year were the numerous leaks. The most prominent one dates back to 2015 when the first four episodes leaked from a promotional screener. In 2017 a Game of Thrones episode leaked with a “Star India” watermark. This eventually led to the arrests of four people. Keeping up with this trend, several episodes came out early this year as well, and even before the final, the plot was already out. The fact that pirates were often able to see GoT episodes before regular viewers only increased the piracy figures. This was also confirmed by academic research which found that these leaks bred pirates while hurting official viewing numbers. Other major factors that played a role in the high piracy rates are ‘availability’ and pricing. During the early seasons, Game of Thrones wasn’t as widely available as it is today. And even if it was, there were often significant release delays, up to several weeks. That drove many people, especially the bigger fans, to pirate sites. Over the years the availability problem was addressed in many countries, but for many a pricing hurdle remained. Watching Game of Thrones legally, could in many cases cost hundreds of dollars per season, while the pirate alternative was free. Ironically, even those who had eventually signed up for a legal subscription would sometimes continue to pirate, just out of habit. In Australia, for example, 20% of the Foxtel subscribers who had already paid for Game of Thrones still chose to pirate the show instead. In Australia, Game of Thrones piracy has been a hot topic for years. Due to early release delays and relatively high pricing, many chose the piracy route. This frustrated rightsholders and even the U.S. Ambassador, with the latter stating that there is no excuse for ‘stealing.’ Amidst all the controversy, HBO remained fairly calm. Yes, the company issued thousands of takedown notices and even warned some individual file-sharers, but that was about it. Some people did receive settlement demands in 2016, but that was the work of scammers. Some people connected more directly to Game of Thrones also recognized the upside of piracy. Director David Petrarca, for example, previously admitted that piracy generated much-needed “cultural buzz”around the series. Similarly, Jeff Bewkes, in 2013 the CEO of HBO’s parent company Time Warner, noted that piracy resulted in more subscriptions for his company and that receiving the title of “most-pirated” TV-show was actually “better than an Emmy.” That’s a worthy statement to end with.

    RMPrepUSB 2.1.742

    Size : 9.4 MB RMPrepUSB allows the Windows user to easily and quickly 'roll their own' multiboot USB drive. It allows the user to quickly test, partition, format, install a boot manager, extract or copy files and then test a multiboot (aka multipass) USB bootable drive. It can also make or restore an image and much more. Multiboot 'point-and-shoot' utilities like YUMI or XBOOT are excellent, however they don't support every different ISO or image. You will learn to enjoy making your own personal multiboot drive using RMPrepUSB! Why use RMPrepUSB rather than a standard USB formatting tool? -Safe - it only lists USB drives that are less than 128GB in size by default so you cannot accidentally format your USB backup drive or internal hard disk -Instead of using dd to copy an image to a drive (which can be risky if you choose the wrong drive!) use RMPrepUSB. -Compatible - RMPrepUSB uses special boot code patches and partition arrangements to give your USB drive the best chance of booting on a wide variety of different PCs -Fast - formatting is quick. A special FAT32 layout is used which improves write speeds to your USB drive by as much as 10% or more. -Flexible - you can install a variety of different bootloaders and perform all the actions normally required to make a bootable USB drive within RMPrepUSB. -Test Environment - you can test that your USB drive boots using QEMU before you try boot it from a real system. Features: Partition, Format and make bootable a USB drive - This is the main purpose of RMPrepUSB. Most users will need to follow the numbered steps (1-6). For more information see my Video Tutorials section. You can format as FAT16 (up to 2GiB), FAT32 (up to >1TiB - no 32GiB limitation) or NTFS (up to >1TiB). Erase and Clean a USB drive - The Clean button will clear the USB drive partition sectors. Use this if you are having trouble getting Windows to recognise your USB drive and then re-format it using RMPrepUSB - Prepare Drive. Test the size of your USB drive - If you have bought a cheap USB flash drive from China, the chances are it is a 'fake' drive. It may say it is 8GB in Windows, but actually it may only be 1GB and contain faulty memory. 95% of all USB flash memory devices from China on eBay are 'fake'. The Quick Size Test button will erase and test the whole USB flash memory in the drive. If it fails you have a fake drive. If it passes, format it with RMPrepUSB and then test it again with H2TESTW (download link included in the RMPrepUSB Help screen) for a more thorough but much much slower test. Image your USB flash memory pen - RMPrepUSB can take an image of you entire flash memory pen drive and then restore it later. You can keep lots of different bootable images on your Windows hard disk and restore them to your pen drive at a later date. You can also save the contents of just one or several sectors (e.g. the MBR) to a file and restore it later. Information - Use the FileInfo or USBInfo buttons to get information about an image file or USB partition. Grub4DOS - You can use RMPrepUSB to apply a grub4dos boot sector to any USB drive by using the Install grub4dos button. A specially modified version of grubinst.exe is included with RMPrepUSB which increases the USB boot compatibility of many older systems. Format a drive and install SysLinux - this allows you to boot many types of Linux operating systems from a USB drive. Make a BartPE bootable USB drive - First use PEBuilder to make a BartPE folder, then use RMPrepUSB to partition, format and copy the files over to make a bootable USB flash memory drive (just tick the BartPE -> USB button). Speed test - Use the Speed Test button to measure the sequential read and write speed of your USB drive. The results are added to a .csv file each time so you can easily compare drive speeds. Eject a USB drive - Remember to use the Eject button before you remove your USB drive from the USB port or you may get a corrupted drive! Use RMPartUSB in your scripts - RMPrepUSB is just a front-end user interface for RMPartUSB which is the command line utility that does all the hard work. The command line is displayed to the user by RMPrepUSB just before it calls RMPartUSB, so all you need to do is include the same command in your scripts. One use for RMPartUSB is just to detect if any USB storage device is connected and find out which physical drive number and volume letter it has been assigned by Windows. See RMPartUSB.txt for more info or just type RMPartUSB in a command console window. Partition and format a non-USB drive (versions 2.1.505 and later). Works on non-USB drives if the ALLDRIVES command line parameter is specified (or press Alt+F5). Pre-set your favourite configurations so that the end user does not need to remember what settings to use or where the source files are stored (v2.1.601 and later). Install a Syslinux boot loader (different versions can be selected by copying the correct version from the Syslinux subfolder to the main RMPrepUSB installation folder) Create an Ext2 filesystem as a mountable file for persistent linux OS's (e.g. casper-rw). Run QEMU to emulate booting directly from the USB drive so you can test out your boot menu's (boots with full write access if using v2.1.707 or later - something not normally possible) Extract files from a zip or ISO file and copy them to your USB drive (v2.1.630 and later) Calculate the MD5/CRC32 and SHA1 checksum values of any file using a NirSoft utlity (press ALT+F2 v2.1.631 and later). Overwrite the Master Boot Record with default (Win7) boot code and leave disk signature and partition table alone (ALT+CTRL+F5) Change the Disk Signature. Install WEE bootloader to Track 0 on any disk. WEE is an embedded bootloader based around a cut-down version of grub4dos and may boot some systems which won't boot using grub4dos. Launch Disk Doctor, a disk test and sector/byte editing/viewing utility. Make contiguous all files on a drive (CTRL+F2) using WinContig. Create a 1.44MB MS-DOS bootable image file (using an internal Windows DLL as the source) Change the partition order on a USB Flash drive so that a different partition is accessible in Windows Boot to any ISO file or the RMPrepUSB virtual disk image using QEMU Clear the read-only attributes on a write-protected disk and first volume (uses Diskpart in Vista or later OS's only) Create a bootable ISO directly from a bootable grub4dos USB drive Whats New Homepage Installer Portable

  14. Microsoft refuses to deny that it will block Windows 10 updates on Huawei laptops What does the Huawei blacklist mean for its laptops? Image credit: TechRadar Google’s decision to block Android updates for Huawei smartphones has been making waves around the world, but owners of Huawei laptops – such as the Huawei MateBook 14 – have been left wondering if Microsoft will follow suit and block Windows 10 updates for Huawei laptops. The idea that Microsoft would prevent Huawei laptops from installing important Windows 10 updates – and the security implications for users that entails – should be ridiculous, but with Google bowing to pressure from the US government, and Microsoft’s silence on the matter, makes us fear that we could see a similar ban for Huawei laptops. We contacted Microsoft to find out whether or not the company is planning on blocking Windows 10 updates for Huawei laptops, and we got a rather terse statement that “we have nothing to share.” While that doesn’t mean Microsoft is going to block Windows 10 updates, the fact that the company seems unwilling to deny it gives us concern. Not being able to update your Huawei laptop with the latest updates for Windows 10 would be a major blow for anyone using the devices. Huawei’s laptops are pretty great – and regularly top our best laptops list– but if they can no longer be updated, we wouldn’t be able to recommend them. It would be an odd choice for Microsoft – as the company will not want unpatched and updated Windows 10 laptops out in the wild – so if the company does block Windows 10 updates (and remember this isn’t confirmed either way at the moment), then it would likely be due to pressure from the US government, which has instigated the blacklist of Huawei due to security concerns. Intel and Qualcomm are joining the ban It’s also emerged that other major hardware makers including Intel and Qualcomm will not supply Huawei with their products. This would have major implications for future Huawei laptops, which so far run on Intel processors. With Microsoft’s reluctance to say whether it will block Windows 10 updates, things aren’t looking great for Huawei’s laptops. We’ve contacted Huawei for a comment and will update this story when we hear more. Source

  16. Game of Thrones season 8 finale: Subtle details you may have missed This is the last episode ever, so you may as well soak in the details. Bran thinking hard as usual. HBO Warning: Spoilers aplenty below. It's all over. The game has been played. On Sunday HBO aired The Iron Throne, the last ever episode of Game of Thrones. If you've seen it, you probably have strong feelings about it. It saw the death of Daenerys Targaryen and the ascent of Bran the Broken. It saw Sansa Stark become the Queen of the North and Tyrion Lannister the Hand of the new King. It saw Jon Snow pat Ghost. Over a million people have signed a petitionto have the last season be remade, although such petitions are all the rage these days, so it's very much a "love it or hate it" affair. But with nearly 20 million viewers, it was among the biggest events in episodic TV history. Here are some of the details and callbacks to previous seasons you may have missed. Targaryens in the Keep One of the two big moments of the episode was the death of Daenerys. Tyrion, imprisoned by Daenerys, convinces Jon that she's officially mad, and that Jon and his sisters are sure to incur her wrath sooner rather than later. Jon confronts Daenerys and, gauging her to be insufficiently repentant about massacring an entire city, stabs her right in the heart. This scene, apart from being one of the best in season 8 and arguably the whole show, featured many callbacks to moments in previous seasons. Before Jon confronts her, we see Daenerys ascending the steps to the Iron Throne. She gazes upon it covetously and grasps a hilt of one of the many blades that comprise it. This is a direct throwback to the vision she sees in Qarth back in season 2. The vision, also referenced in The Bells, shows Daenerys wandering into a snow-blanketed, ransacked Red Keep. In it, she walks to the Throne and begins to reach for it, but at the last moment she shies away from touching it. It of course turns out that the Red Keep wouldn't be blanketed in snow, but rather ash. Daenerys did make her grasp for power, grabbing onto the Throne, so I guess the Targaryen coin had yet to land in her vision. In her vision she's distracted by the cries of a dragon. In episode 6, her attention goes to Jon Snow, who enters The Great Hall. Daenerys is notably less crazed here than in The Bells, but she won't free Tyrion and she said she had to kill all of those innocent civilians to prove Cersei wrong. Or... something. Jon sweet talks her, says she's his queen forever, and then stabs her right in the heart. The last Targaryen to rule, Aerys II, was famously stabbed in the same spot by Jaime Lannister during Robert's Rebellion. There was similar treachery afoot there: Aerys' Hand of the King was Tywin Lannister, who requested King's Landing's gates open so that his army could protect the crown. Aerys opened the gates but Tywin's army turned on Aerys and sacked the city, similar to Daenerys razing the city even after the bells rang in surrender. Aerys died in front of the Iron Throne when Kingsguard head Jaime Lannister, appalled by the Mad King's demands that the whole city be engulfed in wildfire, impaled him from behind. Daenerys died when her most trusted ally, appalled by her engulfing the city in dragonfire, impaled her from the front. Jaime told Brienne back in season 3 about how little he enjoyed killing the man he was sworn to protect. Jon was naturally even more conflicted about what he had to do. He cried as he lowered Daenery's body to the floor. She is the second partner to die in his hands; Ygritte, his wildling lover, would also die while looking into the eyes of Jon Snow. Daenerys died in the arms of Jon, her alleged lover. HBO Ygritte, Jon's alleged first love, also died in his arms. Rough go, this guy's had. HBO And finally, Daenerys' death roused Drogon, who flew into the Great Hall. Drogon, presumably in a rage against the symbol of the power that corrupted his mother, burned down the Iron Throne. Fittingly, the Throne was forged by Balerion, the first dragon the Targaryens used to conquer the Seven Kingdoms, and melted by Drogon, the final (?) dragon used by a Targaryen to conquer, well, anything. Ser Jaime Lannister During The Iron Throne's extended epilogue, we see Ser Brienne of Tarth detailing the full story of Jaime's exploits in a book. This is The Book of Brothers, which records the deeds of all the Knights to have ever served in the Kingsguard. The Book of Brothers previously appeared twice, both times in season 4. In the first episode of that season -- the best season in the series, might I add -- Jaime is being reprimanded by his son/nephew, Jofrrey Lannister/Baratheon. Joffrey dunks on Jaime pretty hard, perusing the book and noting that Ser Duncan the Tall was decorated enough to take up four pages, yet Jaime doesn't even have a full page to his name. Ser Brienne is both a knight and a writer. HBO Jaime says there's still time, but Joffrey questions that. "Is there?" asks a bemused Joffrey. "For a 40-year-old knight with one hand?" Damn, roasted. Three episodes later, Brienne reads out Jaime's underwhelming entry. "It's the duty of the Lord Commander to fill out those pages. And there's still room left in mine." Well, that's where Brienne comes in. In the finale, Brienne, now the Lord Commander, jots down the following tales under Jaime's name: "Captured in the field at the Whispering Wood: Set free by Lady Catelyn Stark in return for an oath to find and return her two daughters." (Seasons 1-3) "Took Riverrun from the Tully rebels, without loss of life." (Season 6) "Lured the Unsullied into attacking Casterly Rock, sacrificing his childhood home in service to a greater strategy. Outwitted the Targaryen forces to seize Highgarden." (Season 7) "Fought at the Battle of the Goldroad bravely, narrowly escaping death by dragonfire. Pledged himself to the forces of men and rode north to join them at Winterfell, alone." (Season 7) "Faced the Army of the Dead, and defended the castle against impossible odds until the defeat of the Night King. Escaped imprisonment and rode south in an attempt to save the capital from destruction." (Season 8 ) Died protecting his Queen." (Season 8 ) So it was Jaime who knighted Brienne in season 8 episode 2, A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms, but it was Brienne who ultimately gave Jaime a dignified legacy. (Also note that the sigil on Brienne's chestplate is that of a raven, for Bran the Broken.) A wise man. HBO Flashbacks and foreshadows Love and duty: There was another substantial throwback earlier in the episode, when Jon goes to see an imprisoned Tyrion. Tyrion, in the process of convincing Jon to put an end to Daenerys, says he loves her just like Jon does. "Love is the death of duty," Jon says. He mentions that it was something Maester Aemon told him. Maester Aemon did indeed tell him this, back in episode 9 of the first season after Ned Stark's head had been chopped off. (Aemon also said it to Sam in season 4.) "We all do our duty when there's no cost to it," he said. "Honor comes easy then. Sooner or later, in every man's life, there comes a day when it is not easy, a day when he must choose." This sentiment was echoed by Tyrion moments later. Tyrion tells Jon that Sansa told him about Jon's true identity because she doesn't want Daenerys to be Queen. "She doesn't get to choose," Jon says. "No, but you do, and you have to choose now," Tyrion powerfully replies. Aemon didn't know how prescient he was, and how Jon's hardest decision would not be whether to bail from The Night's Watch to join his brother Robb Stark, but whether or not he should betray his Queen -- who happened to be Aemon's great niece. Intro tidbits: Each episode of season 8 has aired with slightly tweaked opening credits. This week, for the finale, the Lannister Lion did not appear above the Iron Throne and the Map Room of the Red Keep had a fission line through it, the former representing the fall of Queen Cersei and the latter the destruction of the city. (Plus, the actual Map Room had a fission through it.) This week. HBO Last week. HBO A throne of a thousand swords: Before Jon brutally betrays her, the final tale Daenerys spins is of how her brother Viserys told her of the Iron Throne when she was young; how he said it was 1,000 blades-tall. The real thing, it turns out, is far less formidable. But George R.R. Martin has written about how the Iron Throne he envisions in his books is actually closer to what Viserys told Daenerys about. "The way the throne is described in the books," Martin wrote in 2013 on his Not a Blog, in reference to HBO's depiction, "HUGE, hulking, black and twisted, with the steep iron stairs in front, the high seat from which the king looks DOWN on everyone in the court... my throne is a hunched beast looming over the throne room, ugly and asymmetric." West of west, north of north: When bidding Jon farewell, Arya says she can't visit him up at The Wall. Not because of any rules, but because she's headed out to explore The Known World. She wants to find out what's west of Westeros. This was foreshadowed in season 6. Lady Crane, a Braavosi actress, asks Arya where she'll go next. "Essos is east and Westeros is west, but what's west of Westeros?" "The edge of the world, maybe," Lady Crane replies. "I want to see it," Arya says. Jon's banishment to the Night's Watch was also foreshadowed, but not as long ago as season 6. In episode 4, The Last of the Starks, the one where Jon didn't pat Ghost, Tormound says he doesn't like "the south," in reference to Castle Black and Winterfell. He says he's going up north -- and adds that the north, "the real north," is where Jon belongs. Queen in the North: Bran won the Game of Thrones, but a close second may be Sansa Stark. Sansa refused to bend the knee to her brother, declaring the North a free kingdom. Shortly thereafter, we see Sansa crowned the Queen in the North in a scene similar to the ones enjoyed by Robb Stark and Jon. Firstly, this is of course an arc-capping moment, as in season 1 Sansa fantasized about being a beloved queen. Secondly, Sansa's coronation dress is actually insanely symbolic. There are details on it that represent each of her family members, as Pinterest member purplefloofs noted, like a one-arm cloak for Arya, a Weirwood pattern for Bran, the style of her tiara for Robb, and more. Check out BuzzFeed's extensive breakdown of it here. TL;DR, Sansa Stark is so great. As it begins, so it ends: The very first scene in Game of Thrones was a trio of Night's Watchmen venturing north of the wall, where they're killed by White Walkers. The very last scene in Game of Thrones sees Jon, Tormund and all the new Night's Watchmen venturing north of the wall, Wildlings and Crows living in peace and White Walker threat eliminated. Source
  17. Microchips, massive blow: Huawei's vulnerability explained Image copyrightIFIXIT Image captionThe Huawei P30 Pro motherboard, which uses tech sourced internationally (Picture provided by iFixIt.com) Google’s announcement that it was no longer able to work with Huawei is just one repercussion of the US decision to add the Chinese tech giant to its “entity list” of companies American firms cannot work with. The true impact to Huawei may be enormous. While we often refer to the firm's devices as simply “Chinese”, the reality is much more complicated - it sources parts and expertise from all over the world. The same can be said for the likes of Apple, of course, which relies at least in part on chips created by its rival, Samsung. To get an idea of how disruptive the US move is, let's take a look at just one component of one device: the motherboard in Huawei’s flagship smartphone, the P30 Pro. It's a circuit board that is barely the length of a finger - but one that relies on a web of complex supply chains and sourcing to make it possible and affordable. Image copyrightIFIXIT Image captionOne side of the P30 Pro motherboard (picture provided by iFixIt.com) The P30 Pro’s RF transceivers (1) and audio chip (4, below) are made by HiSilicon, a China-based company wholly owned by Huawei - but that’s where the homegrown tech ends. The chip’s front end module (2) - which makes it able to engage with mobile network signals - is designed and manufactured by Skyworks, a semiconductor firm based in Massachusetts, USA, that falls under the US restrictions. An additional front end module (3) to handle different radio frequencies is made by Qorvo, a semiconductor firm headquartered in Greensboro, North Carolina. It is also affected by the ban. Image copyrightIFIXIT Image captionThe flipside, showing an American-made flash storage chip (Picture provided by iFixIt.com) On the reverse side, the flash storage (5) is designed by Micron Technologies, a 40-year-old semiconductor specialist based in Idaho, USA. This component means the P30 has 128GB of space on which to install the phone’s software - as well as space for the phone’s user to store pictures, video and so on. According to figures, some 13% of Micron’s annual revenue comes from supplying Huawei. And finally, you can see DRAM (6) (dynamic random access memory) designed and manufactured by SK Hynix, a South Korean firm that also supplies components to Apple and others. SK Hynix is not affected by the US restrictions, but there are diplomatic troubles here too: China has reportedly raised concerns that SK Hynix and other South Korean chipmakers are working together to drive up prices to China in order to capitalise on their expertise. The companies deny this. Unpredictable future This is just one motherboard, in one device. Last year, Huawei released a list of its core suppliers and it included 33 US companies. As well as Google having to pull back on supplying its version of Android, major US technology suppliers including Xilinx, Qualcomm, Broadcom and Intel have all warned they will need to stop selling their technology to Huawei in order to comply with the ban. NeoPhotonics, a San Jose-based firm which makes networking equipment, has a contract with Huawei that represents 44% of its entire revenue. On Monday, the US Commerce Department issued a temporary licence that enabled some companies to continue supporting existing networks and devices - but longer term, it’s an unstable, unpredictable future for the cooperation between American and Chinese innovators. Analysts predict the decision could encourage China’s desire to build more technology within its own borders. That would be a difficult, costly, and in some areas sub-par, move to take. But long-term it would give China a chance to set its own standards on future technologies. That would hasten what some are referring to as the Balkanisation of the digital age: two separate internets that would each require different technologies in order to use them. Source

  19. Yes, I looked in the settings. But today it finally updates in the vm and import settings from smart security seems to work. (firewall rules) So maybe this is an alternative tempfix if tnod dries up.
  20. Chromium-Based Microsoft Edge Preview for Mac Officially Launched Microsoft has released the very first official preview of its new Microsoft Edge browser for Apple’s macOS platform. While an internal build got leakedearlier this month, this is the very first official release announced by Microsoft, and it gives Apple’s users the chance to try out the Canary build of the Chromium-based Microsoft Edge browser. macOS 10.12 or above is required to install the app, and Microsoft promises that a Dev build is on its way to users as well. The Dev version “will be released very soon” and it will allow users to run it side-by-side with the existing Canary builds.Improvements specific to macOSMicrosoft Edge comes to macOS with the same feature arsenal the Windows 10 sibling, but at the same time, it also introduces tweaks that are specific to Apple’s platform. “Examples of this include a number of tweaks to match macOS conventions for fonts, menus, keyboard shortcuts, title casing, and other areas. You will continue to see the look and feel of the browser evolve in future releases as we continue to experiment, iterate and listen to customer feedback,” the Microsoft Edge team explains. Thanks to the migration to Chromium, Microsoft Edge can thus expand beyond the borders of Windows 10. Microsoft promised to release builds of the new browser on older Windows (Windows 7 and 8.1) and on macOS. A Linux version is also believed to be in the works, though details on this particular version haven’t been shared. As for the stable version, nothing is known at this point. Microsoft could be aiming to bring Microsoft Edge to beta and stable channels later this year, albeit right now finalizing the browser for Windows 10 devices is likely the priority. Unofficially, Windows 10 installer can also be used to install the app on Windows 7 and 8.1, though no support is offered in this case. Source
  21. don't see how patched apks are better than the combination of official app + unlocker.. no need to uninstall old versions because of conflicts in app signature.. its a small app 4kB.. no need to compress more
  22. I use both ccleaner and Cleanspace. Cleanspace seems to delete more categories than ccleaner (I haven't used PrivaZer) . But the one thing it can't do that ccleaner does is the ability to add the content of custom directories (eg c:\Temp) - you can't do that in Cleanspace which is strange. And ccleaner also enables you to keep selected cookies, plus it has some useful tools too. Cleanspace isn't for those sort of things however. But if you're not too paranoid about deleting private data then I reckon ccleaner on its own is a good choice IMO

    I blocked the program in my firewall and all is working well here.
  24. Sorry for late answer, in the middle of real life action here. Error indicates slmgr /upk was used. NASTY & USELESS action some KMS activation tools are performing which screws licensing info. Apparently default checks fail in that case and trigger the message in hwidgen. Install the default key for your edition via admin CMD: cscript slmgr.vbs /ipk XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX (Replace placeholder 'X' with actual key)
