Backing Up Your Computer Is Now Illegal

Backing Up Your Computer Is Now Illegal

The whole copyright debate is a mad one for the UK. One moment we can't make personal backup copies of our CDs and DVDs, then the next moment it becomes something we can do and then recently that has been once again changed. And it's not just the whole copying/ripping music that's involved - it also applies to computer backups.

The UK Intellectual Property Office ("IPO") has said "It is now unlawful to make private copies of copyright works you own, without permission from the copyright holder", so if you buy a... [read more]

Windows 10: Free Up More Space After Upgrading

Windows 10: Free Up More Space After Upgrading

If you've upgraded from Windows 7 or Windows 8 and you find that a lot of your harddrive space has been used up, don't worry too much as it's not Windows 10 itself that's packed it out.

When you upgrade, Windows keeps a backup copy of your previous OS to allow you to revert back to it if you're not happy with Windows 10 - however this is only valid for up to a month after you upgrade. Now this backup doesn't exactly come in at a small size as you... [read more]

iOS 8.3 Jailbreak

iOS 8.3

I've finally come into the modern world and upgraded from iOS 7.1.1 (of which I had jailbroke) and I am now running on iOS 8.3. So why the long wait?

Well, I've been a right sucker for having stuff jailbroken as I am from a very open and relaxed enviroment (Android) and don't like being tied to certain things (i.e; App *must* be downloaded via the App Store ONLY, audio recordings from a website cannot be natively saved to the device). I've always enjoyed having the freedom to do other things (I've even gone to the extent of... [read more]

Geography 101: England, GB, UK or BI

There's still a huge amount of confusion, not just with foreigners, but also with the citizens of this great land regarding what certain places are called. The main reason I decided to bring this up is because where the house is that I currently live in is supposedly in about 4/5 different named areas... and it causes major confusion when I try explaining it. Anyway, this isn't about me, it's about this wonderful nation/country/whatever... do we call it Britain? Great Britain? United Kingdom or the British Isles?

To save the confusion, I believe this quick Geography 101 I've... [read more]

[iOS] All4 Jailbreak Detection Bypassed

All 4 Jailbreak Detection Bypassed

One of my Tweeters asked me the other night if I am having any problems with the AppStore, so I decided to download an App to see if there was any problems and there wasn't. However this App was Channel 4's newly named thing instead of it being 4oD ("On Demand"), it's now All 4 - bit wank IMO.

So anyway, I opened it up and was presented with this screen ...

... immediate thought, Flex!

And within 20-30 seconds I got this instead ...
