Fix Epson Stylus SX105 Scanner Cropping Images Automatically

February 24, 2016 10:39 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

The Epson Stylus SX105 all in one printer and scanner is a great addition for your everyday office stuff, but the default settings in the scanner software tend to add unwanted cropping of images to pretty much anything you try to scan. While cropping is alright for most documents, in some situations you would prefer for the scanner to not crop scanned material on its own. How to fix scanner cropping issue I spent quite a lot of time trying to figure out what was wrong with the device and eventually failed to detect any anomalies because the actual problem...

Google Cardboard – A Gateway to the VR World

February 15, 2016 5:45 pm Published by 1 Comment

Remember when the first smartphones used to cost a fortune? It’s the same with Virtual Reality technology because like any other first generation technology, it’s still very young and out of reach for the average folk. Currently the consumer grade VR Headset costs around $600 + shipping and handling. Kind of crispy if you ask me. Experience Virtual Reality using your phone However there’s still a way to test the waters and experience the world of Virtual Reality first hand for less than what you’d normally pay for a happy meal. Google Cardboard is a Do It Yourself cardboard device that... View Article

Lubuntu is a great lightweight Linux distro for any old Netbook

January 7, 2016 10:24 pm Published by 1 Comment

About 4 years ago I purchased this old netbook from a guy who apparently only needed it for a single plane trip to watch some movies. Three years were well spent together with the MSI Wind U100 upgraded with 2GB of RAM, 1.6 GHZ processor and Intel GMA950 graphics chip, but I eventually realized that it wasn’t enough for my needs (FL Studio) and so the little guy was abandoned for an Ultrabook (Series 5). It has been at least a year since I even laid eyes on the netbook, but today I decided to install a very lightweight Linux... View Article

Mechanical Gaming Mouse and Programmable Mouse Review

October 26, 2015 10:20 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

I had to order a new gaming mouse recently, after my incredibly annoying parrot decided to completely destroy the cable of my previous mouse. I’m quite price sensitive when it comes to pretty much anything, so I wasn’t even looking at the Razer class gaming mice, but instead went to eBay to look for good deals. As it happens, I might have just stumbled on the best deal of 2015! It looks like a Transformer That’s what my sister said when she first saw it and I kind of have to agree with her, but not only does it look... View Article

Hanging a picture on a wall might seem like a simple task at first, but if you’ve ever had to do it yourself you know how difficult it can be to adjust the frame on the wall just right and in a way that will leave the wall not looking like Swiss cheese in the process. Before drilling a hole in your wall you have to take into account the length of the wire that holds the frame as well as other measurements, but thanks to a man named Dean Greve you no longer have to worry about any of...

This neat little spy camera is disguised as a fully functional ball point pen so nobody will suspect a thing when you’re taking photos or recording videos with it. Apart from being useful for the peeping tom, this cool gadget that looks like something straight out of a James Bond movie, can actually become very handy in situations where hard video evidence is the only thing that will protect you (I’m talking about the ever increasing police brutality incidents that are happening all over the US right now).
