WatchMOJO.com Youtube Channel Hacked?

I'm quite a fan of top 5 and top 10 videos, as such I regularly watch watchmojo's, looper's, and screenrant's youtube channels on subjects that interest me.  Imagine the confusion on my face when I see strange titles on their youtube videos just couple of minutes ago.....cockroaches hackers, they're everywhere!
Hopefully they will be able to rename all their +1000s of videos back to normal. One benefit of being an night-owl is that you witness lots of peculiar things :)

Captain America: Civil War, A Short Beefy Review


Despite thirteen protagonists, one antagonist, and few other characters, Civil War really pulled it off.

Just came back from the movies to see the third installment of Captain America: Civil War (I think a proper title would  have been Captain America: The Avengers Beef). If you felt a bit disappointed after watching Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justicewelcome to the club by the wayCivil War will definitely give you the run for your money. Here is a personal take on my experience with A bit of spoilers.

Still Got Your Old Video Games and Electronics?

My super mint condition DBZ Tenkaichi 3 for PS2
Yo!

Still got some of your old PS2 games stored securely somewhere in your basement or storage closet? If they're in mint or very good conditions, you might wanna take a quick look at their value on EBay or Amazon, like right now! It could be worth a little fortune, or not. 

Since I don't like to throw stuff away, I was scouting the net to see how much my junk are worth. I was thinking to

Arrow: Eleven Fifty Nine - Did Laura Really Die?



Got to admit that I only started watching Arrow back in 2015. After a positive experience of Netflix binge watching, I gave a try to The Flash when it was announced. Oh boy, there is no doubt that Arrow and The Flash are the best Comics Inspired TV shows, period. Arrow has consistently delivered high octaned seasons while The Flash's second season is, by my humble opinion, even better than the first. Mind you, "Enter Zoom" and "Whatever-episode-Deathstroke-appeared-in-Arrow"   are sitting at the top of my all time favorite episodes. Also, what makes them great is the fact that anyone who is not deeply familiar with American comics (DC/Marvel) universes can enjoy them.

Ahem...I'm getting carried away. Tonight's ending of Arrow was so

The Walking Dead Season 6 Finale - Who Got Hit?

I think that this season finale actually saved the show. Has Rick finally met his match? Is Daryl Dead? Was it Glenn?
Negan's explosive entrance caused our protagonist group to for the first time feel helplessness. The title should have been "despair" or some. Negan and his saviors will hopefully give a kick to season 7. I was starting to feel bored since nothing major really occurred in this season.

Best PDF Compressor - Size It Down

As part of my semi-cloud migration, I decided to upload some of my PDF eBooks into my Google Books library. Unfortunately, it wasn't letting me upload one of them due to the 100 MB file size limit. It so happened that particular eBook definitely needed to make it to the cloud. It's like moving to the other side of town but you can't fit your 60" 4K TV in the trunk. See the dilemma?
How do you describe that feeling after you finally find a solution to a problem that bugged you like forever? Well, I'm not verbose, but let's just say that I'm delighted. I was able to compress a 120 MB PDF file (composed of +400 pages of picture scans, hence the large size) down to a third of its size  using Foxit Reader. And the best part is that the quality is still decent and the software was at my finger tips for years.

Want to reduce your PDFeBook, documents, and whatnotfiles? Follow the steps below:

The End Of My Love Affair With SD cards, Migrate To The Cloud?


My now defunct SanDisk Ultra 64GB Micro SD XC I

Sorry if the title is cheesy. Seriously though, up until today I was the most ardent fan of [micro] SD cards.The reason was simple: be in total control of my data. Along with that was being able to simply pull it and insert it into whatever else device I have without the need to reformat. The relationship was beautiful, non-complicated, and stress-free. So you can already guess that I hated with passion Apple's Iphones since heydays, Google's new Nexus line-ups, and surprisingly Samsung when it announced that the Galaxy S6 will not support micro SDs.  After today's incident and the fact that I despised smartphones that didn't have SD support, I guess the joke was on me.

SSD drive partition is full but shouldn't be - Reclaim Missing Space



Earlier tonight I noticed one of my dedicated SSD partitions started to run out of room again. I had this issue for couple months now, but because I had ample of space left, I didn't think much of it. Well, I decided to run WinDirstat one more time to see if I had missed something. If you don't know the program, WinDirstat is a fantastic visualization tool for your files and folders. Very nice for visual people like myself, check out a screenshot below.

Driver Issues Rooting M.O.J.O by Mad Catz (Fix/Solution)






Warning: Use solution at your own risk. Worked with mine though!

Delete all Your Google Contact Pictures


I love Google for many reasons. However, If I have to pick one from the top of my head it would be Google Contacts. Technology has come a long way. I recall just over 8 years ago, on top of saving all my contacts on my devices, I also had to make sure there was a physical back up contact book. Thanks to the way devices sync these days, I no longer need to worry about my contact book being lost, or my cell phone stolen or wiped out for one reason or another.
The not so distant past seems so far away nowadays. Anyway, enough with my bouts of reminiscence. Here is a fix if you want to delete all of your contact pictures whatever your reason is:

MOJO as Media Center: Prime Video Doesn't Work


All I wanted was to make my M.O.J.O console into my one-stop entertainment center: mainly stream videos, watch my local media, and also play few android games from time to time. Apps like Kodi, Youtube, Google Play Movies and NBC perform without a glitch. TV apps such as RT America, TV5, and France 24 also work like a charm. Unfortunately, this is not the case for more popular streaming apps like Prime Video and Crackle.

Edges of Screen aren't visible with M.O.J.O micro console



The edges aren't visible?

This tip from their support site helped me out:

Some televisions will adjust the picture of M.O.J.O. so that the edges are off screen.  To change this, you should check the settings menus of your television and look for Aspect Ratio or Zoom options.  Every television is different so the exact method for adjusting will differ from model to model. However, if there’s a Zoom level option then setting that to ‘Full’ or 'Full Pixel' should solve it. Alternatively, if it’s an Aspect Ratio menu then ‘Scan Only’ is the option to select.
My TV's solution was with the Scan option. I turned it off and VOILA!


P.S.
In case you are still unaware, Newegg.com is offering the M.O.J.O micro console for $99.99 for more than a week now! Grab one while you can!

Why Did SamSung's Profit Oulook Miss Estimates?

Source: http://geekshizzle.com









I heard lately that even Samsung is not doing as superb as it should be. Although it is devouring market shares with its huge selection of phones, tablets, [phablets], TVs, computers, etc...; smashing competition with an appealing operating system (Android) -as I like to call it: a personable/fashionable/customizable OS; earnings don't seem to hit over the roof.
According to an article on BBC:
Samsung shares fell 3.8% after the profit guidance. Its shares have dropped more than
