QNAP 3.6X Software Deep Dive

A QNAP Network Attached Server is an amazing piece of hardware and the cool thing about this company and their products is that they keep updating the software to bring a lot more features and performance to their products.  TweakTown takes a deep dive into the software that comes on their products and shows how powerful and feature-rich a QNAP device is.

A few months ago we dove right into QNAP's new MyCloudNAS Service, but several other features were added in the 3.6 software release that we haven't covered. Among those are a new VPN Server, LDAP Server, Storage Plug & Play and Proxy Server. Improvements were also made to the Music Station, Photo Station, QPKG Center, Backup Services and a new Web File Manager with URL Sharing.

Gmail Hacks That Will Change Your Life

If you are a Gmail user (like me), you might want to take a quick peek at BuzzFeed today as they are showing you some Gmail hacks that will "change your life". I'm not making any guarantees that they will completely change your life, but at very least they might save you a little bit of time and give you something to do instead of working on a Friday.

If you hate email and want to spend less time dealing with it, then over the next few days I’m going to show you some Gmail hacks to make life easier on you and the people you communicate with, all without changing your daily email habits.

When Gmail launched in 2004 it had three big innovations: storage size, conversation view, and labels. For most people, those eight-year old features continue to be enough. Over the years Gmail’s storage capacity has grown from 1 GB to 10 GB, conversation view has become more conversational, and they’ve dragged us kicking and screaming into using labels.


GameStop to carry pre-loaded Android Tablets

In an attempt to sell more than just games, GameStop has announced that in October they will be selling preloaded $200 Android Tablets in 1,600 of their stores. These tablets are going to come preloaded with a bunch of games such as Sonic CD and Riptide. GameStop will also feature other Android tablets from Samsung, Toshiba, Acer, and Asus, which will also feature preloaded software. TechCrunch has the full story over here.

 These aren’t ordinary Android tablets, though. GameStop is pre-loading the Samsung, Asus, Acer, and Toshiba with extra gaming titles such as Sonic CD, Riptide, the Kongregate Arcade app and a free issue of GameStop’s gaming mag, Game Informer. Thanks to these extras and with prices that are inline with other stores, GameStop actually has a chance to capture a bit of the tablet market.


Facebook drops Chrome

There have been rumors floating around this week that Facebook is interested in buying Opera Software which is the maker of the Opera web browser. In another "unrelated" story, Facebook has dropped Google's Chrome web browser as a "recommended" web browser and has added.... yup, you guessed it, Opera! Neowin has the full story.

It is beginning to look like Facebook’s management are changing their recommendations towards certain browsers. As of today, Facebook’s “unsupported web browsers” page has removed Google’s web browser, Chrome, and replaced it with Opera.

The choice Facebook has made regarding supporting Opera may not be as farfetched as you may think due to the Social Network’s rumored plans to acquire Opera. This recent change in browser recommendations definitely emphasises on some form of Facebook to Opera relation, so the rumour behind the acquisition could be true.


10 ways Apple has changed since Steve Jobs

Since the passing of Steve Jobs, Apple has began making some changes that might not make Steve Jobs so happy. Gizmodo has come up with a list of 10 things that have changed since Steve Jobs and I'm sure even if you aren't a bit Apple fan you will agree that some of the changes they've made probably aren't so smart.

I miss Steve Jobs. The tech world is so boring. So beige. Things haven't been the same without his show-and-tells, him slamming people left and right, or his email replies in the middle of the night. Apple hasn't been the same either. And, wherever he is, Jobs probably doesn't like some of the things that have been happening or are about to happen in Cupertino. Here are the 10 things that would have probably made him shout his classic "this is @#$@!"


Who wants a terrible Facebook phone?

For the past couple of years the rumors that Facebook is developing their very own phone have been swirling around the internet. Over the past week or so these rumors have started back up again after the news that some Apple software and hardware engineers from the iPhone and iPad projects had recently joined the Facebook team. Most of the talk around these rumors thinks that it would be a bad idea for Facebook to develop their own hardware and the guys over at Slate.com share their thoughts on why this is a bad idea.

There are two ways to make money in the smartphone business. There’s Apple’s way: 1) Make premium products that people clamor for; 2) Sell the devices for substantially more than it costs to make them; 3) Figure out what to do with your rapidly accumulating stockpiles of cash.


Facebook's Paid-to-Promote feature arrives

A couple weeks ago we posted a story about Facebook testing out a new feature that allowed you to have your posts end up at the top of your friends pages for a price. Well the feature has now gone live and as Gizmodo shows you, its not cheap at all. If you have enough people that "like" your page it could cost up to $100 bucks to have your post be "promoted" to most of the people following you. This is really a terrible idea, but I guess if 1 in 100,000 people use it on a somewhat regular basis it will translate into big bucks for Facebook (while annoying the crap out of everyone else).

We've heard rumblings that Facebook was testing a system called Highlight that would allow people to pay to promote a post, and now obnoxiously enough, it's starting to show up.

Chris Cantalini, who runs a music blog called Gorilla vs. Bear, tweeted that he was posting a track by Holy Balm when he was presented with the above prompt. It asked him if he wanted to pay as much as $100 so that just one post, one song, could reach an estimated 39,000 people. For the record, only 37,000 people already Like Gorilla vs. Bear on Facebook.
