Not only that but every file and folder that you open is being recorder in your computers registry. Don't believe me? Download ” ShellBag AnalyZer & Cleaner” by Goversoft and then run it, when this program reveals all of the things Microsoft logs about you I can almost guarantee you will be upset. When you look at the screen you will see that it logs files that you have opened, not just recently, but even going months back, it also shows when you changed settings, and it shows way more than that. Please be careful if you run the “Cleaner” part of the application that this software comes with and pay close attention, only do what the software tells you to do. I have never had any problems, but after the cleaner is finished running a pop-up message warns you to log off or reboot your computer before doing anything else. Make sure that you do exactly as asked. This book shows you how to disable those hard drive shares and a lot more than that

(As he said in Don't Make Me Think , ""It's not rocket surgery"".) In this new book, Steve explains how to: Test any design, from a sketch on a napkin to a fully-functioning web site or applicationKeep your focus on finding the most important problems (because no one has the time or resources to fix them all)Fix the problems that you find, using his ""The least you can do"" approachBy paring the process of testing and fixing products down to its essentials (A morning a month, that's all we ask ), Rocket Surgery makes it realistic for teams to test early and often, catching problems while it's still easy to fix them. Rocket Surgery Made Easy adds demonstration videos to the proven mix of clear writing, before-and-after examples, witty illustrations, and practical advice that made Don't Make Me Think so popular.

LINUX: Beginner's Crash Course. Your Step-By-Step Guide To Learning The Linux Operating System And Command Line Easy & Fast! by Jeremy Li

LINUX: Beginner's Crash Course Your Step-By-Step Guide To Learning The Linux Operating System And Command Line Easy & Fast! Linux is the ruler of data centers. Ever since Linux burst on the operating system scene in the mid -90s, it has seen a steady increase in popularity. Though desktop users never really warmed up to it, its phenomenal success in the server market is the stuff of fairytales. Linus Torvalds could have never predicted that his brainchild would grow so big! There are many numbers of Linux flavors to choose from. Debian, Red Hat, Ubuntu, CenTOS Fedora, SUSE, these are all very popular with large organizations as well as web-hosting services. Open source has come of age and has become all pervasive. More and more organizations are choosing the Linux route because of the robust technology and also because licensing issues are minimum. From a security point of view, Linux is a better OS to use on a critical server, because it lets users fine tune how precisely it is set up. Unlike a Windows environment, which is riddled with big security holes by default, Linux provides a much more secure and hardened OS. With cloud-based infrastructure gaining ground everywhere, Linux dominance is here to stay. Any IT administrator worth his salt needs to have solid Linux skills to survive and grow today.

From Gutenberg to Google - Tom Wheeler Cover Art

From Gutenberg to Google

From Gutenberg to Google The History of Our Future by Tom Wheeler

Network revolutions of the past have shaped the present and set the stage for the revolution we are experiencing today In an era of seemingly instant change, it's easy to think that today's revolutions—in communications, business, and many areas of daily life—are unprecedented. Today's changes may be new and may be happening faster than ever before. But our ancestors at times were just as bewildered by rapid upheavals in what we now call “networks”—the physical links that bind any society together. In this fascinating book, former FCC chairman Tom Wheeler brings to life the two great network revolutions of the past and uses them to help put in perspective the confusion, uncertainty, and even excitement most people face today. The first big network revolution was the invention of movable-type printing in the fifteenth century. This book, its millions of predecessors, and even such broad trends as the Reformation, the Renaissance, and the multiple scientific revolutions of the past 500 years would not have been possible without that one invention. The second revolution came with the invention of the telegraph early in the nineteenth century. Never before had people been able to communicate over long distances faster than a horse could travel. Along with the development of the world's first high-speed network—the railroad—the telegraph upended centuries of stability and literally redrew the map of the world. Wheeler puts these past revolutions into the perspective of today, when rapid-fire changes in networking are upending the nature of work, personal privacy, education, the media, and nearly every other aspect of modern life. But he doesn't leave it there. Outlining “What's Next,” he describes how artificial intelligence, virtual reality, blockchain, and the need for cybersecurity are laying the foundation for a third network revolution.


TechGnosis - Erik Davis Cover Art


TechGnosis Myth, Magic, and Mysticism in the Age of Information by Erik Davis

How does our fascination with technology intersect with the religious imagination? In  TechGnosis —a cult classic now updated and reissued with a new afterword—Erik Davis argues that while the realms of the digital and the spiritual may seem worlds apart, esoteric and religious impulses have in fact always permeated (and sometimes inspired) technological communication. Davis uncovers startling connections between such seemingly disparate topics as electricity and alchemy; online roleplaying games and religious and occult practices; virtual reality and gnostic mythology; programming languages and Kabbalah. The final chapters address the apocalyptic dreams that haunt technology, providing vital historical context as well as new ways to think about a future defined by the mutant intermingling of mind and machine, nightmare and fantasy.


Deep Learning - Ian Goodfellow, Yoshua Bengio & Aaron Courville Cover Art

Deep Learning

Deep Learning by Ian Goodfellow, Yoshua Bengio & Aaron Courville

"Written by three experts in the field, Deep Learning is the only comprehensive book on the subject." -- Elon Musk , cochair of OpenAI; cofounder and CEO of Tesla and SpaceXDeep learning is a form of machine learning that enables computers to learn from experience and understand the world in terms of a hierarchy of concepts. Because the computer gathers knowledge from experience, there is no need for a human computer operator to formally specify all the knowledge that the computer needs. The hierarchy of concepts allows the computer to learn complicated concepts by building them out of simpler ones; a graph of these hierarchies would be many layers deep. This book introduces a broad range of topics in deep learning. The text offers mathematical and conceptual background, covering relevant concepts in linear algebra, probability theory and information theory, numerical computation, and machine learning. It describes deep learning techniques used by practitioners in industry, including deep feed forward networks, regularization, optimization algorithms, convolutional networks, sequence modeling, and practical methodology; and it surveys such applications as natural language processing, speech recognition, computer vision, online recommendation systems, bioinformatics, and videogames. Finally, the book offers research perspectives, covering such theoretical topics as linear factor models, autoencoders, representation learning, structured probabilistic models, Monte Carlo methods, the partition function, approximate inference, and deep generative models. Deep Learning can be used by undergraduate or graduate students planning careers in either industry or research, and by software engineers who want to begin using deep learning in their products or platforms. A website offers supplementary material for both readers and instructors.

Apple Watch Series 4

Apple Watch Series 4 Telling Time & So Much More by Cathy Young

5 Star review on Amazon. #1 Ranking Apple Top Charts New Releases.  So, you have a new Apple Watch. A hearty congratulations to you! No doubt you’ve heard about messaging, email, and the health apps. The visionary Apple Watch is, at last, poised to take on the world in the Apple Watch Series 4! I want you to feel comfortable with all aspects of your watch in an environment that encourages you to learn painlessly at your own pace. My goal is to help you enjoy the wonder of discovering your Apple Watch. Along the way, I want to:  • Teach you how to use all the features of your Apple Watch. I say “all.” As far as I know, I found every darned one of them but don’t sue me if I missed one.  • Demonstrate the cool and awe-inspiring features of the Apple Watch. These aren’t random tips and tricks. Rather, I have showcased them in a way that lets you find them while exploring a particular feature or topic.  • Help you find what you want, when you want it. The organized and detailed Table of Contents includes 200+ topics, and the Index has 1,000+ entries to point you in the right direction. Skip around to your heart’s content. • Inspire you with 111+ third-party apps. A few of the categories include entertainment, productivity, sports, photography, and games. We’ll also cover integration platforms like IFTTT, which open up the possibility of unlimited applications. • Focus on the engineering and Apple platforms behind the Apple Watch. The physical device includes the heart rate monitor, accelerometer, gyroscope and Apple’s Force Touch technology. Behind the scenes, learn how Apple is partnering with businesses to extend their HealthKit, HomeKit, and GymKit platforms to enhance your experience for years to come. • List 30 Common Troubleshooting and Maintenance Suggestions. This book is specifically for the Series 4 Apple Watch. While much of the content applies equally to older models, please know that I didn’t attempt to cover discontinued features like “glances” or “time travel.” As a final selling point, I make an intentional effort to avoid a few of my pet peeves – and those pertain to incomplete (or half-a**ed) instructions. I frequently see directions such as “tap and go to settings,” but they leave novice users asking, “tap where?” In another example I read, the instructions mentioned a workout playlist and how to enable it – but assumed nothing went awry (and something ALWAYS goes awry). I intend to cover those bases for you. And if I do, by chance, make the mistake of omitting a critical detail anywhere in this book, know that I was probably distracted by my Apple Watch telling me to get moving or to breathe. I apologize ahead of time; it wasn’t intentional.
