    Here’s a book rank that doesn’t look like one at all, instead of making books stack up either side by side or on top of another like on a bookshelf, it lets them hang freely as if they’re floating in mid-air.

    We are on vacation in Woodstock, NY, and the local bookstore had a very entertaining comic in the window. If the picture isn't clear, it shows a 90lb weakling getting stronger from reading the complete works of Plato in hardcover, then smacking for using an ebook reader on the beach. Certainly one advantage to hardcover!   The post The Golden Notebook Nails Why Paper beats eBook originally appeared on Gear Diary.

    Thanks to our smartphones these days being more powerful than ever, packed with different sensors and apps that can take advantage of the hardware, it is not surprising to find that apart from playing games and taking photos, our phones could be used for more “serious” purposes. A team called IanXen has launched an Indiegogo project in which they are seeking funding to help end malaria on an Indonesian island called Bangka. How they will do this is by using an iPhone equipped with a portable microscope, a lancet pen, and blood slides. This will allow them to make diagnoses in the field…
  • BlackBerry Guardian Protection Will Extend To Android Apps

    Tyler Lee

    One of the reasons why companies like Apple, Google, BlackBerry, and Microsoft advise users to download apps from the official app store is because apart from the cut they get from app sales, it is also safer. Most of the time they have systems in place where apps are reviewed and checked for malware before it is released to the app store, thus assuring users that their downloads are safe and clean (for the most part). BlackBerry’s system is called the BlackBerry Guardian where it helps to scan BlackBerry 10 apps, but the good news for BlackBerry users who tend to download a lot of Android…

This is according to a recent post on Sony China’s website in which they are claiming that there will be a new lady-friendly camera that is planned on being launched soon. Unfortunately the specifics of the camera remain unknown, but safe to say that the design of the ad with its perfume bottles certainly does want to appeal to the female market.

    The logistics of drinking coffee are pretty straightforward: find a flat surface and set your cup down. But for those long lazy sessions on the sofa, you might want to get the Lap Mug. It’s wedge shaped, which allows you to easily set it down between your legs. However the wedge angle isn’t so pronounced that you can’t set it down (tilted) on a table. Just don’t do that while the cup is too full. It’s £10, or roughly $17. [ Product Page ] VIA [ OddityMall ] The post Lap Mug Is Made To Rest On Your Lap appeared first on OhGizmo!.

  • Let’s stop persecuting ‘Auschwitz selfie girl’ for smiling at a camera

    25 Jul 2014 | 2:46 pm
    This selfie of a girl in front of Auschwitz has prompted unfair social media outrage I grew up Jewish so I’m naturally very sensitive to the horrors that took place at Auschwitz during the Holocaust. I’m also very critical of Holocaust deniers and those who would minimize what the Nazis did to Jews, gays and other “undesirables.” But I think we need to give that young girl who took a selfie at the concentration camp a break. Alabama teenager Breanna Mitchell has been vilified in social media for gross insensitivity for doing what many others have done before her.

I wasn’t entirely correct. Tablets like the iPad do make it easier to do certain tasks that are hard to do on a small screen with a tiny on-screen keyboard and drawing surface, and awkward to do on a larger…

  • EA Access For Xbox One Cost $5 Per Month, Offers Unlimited Access To BF4, Madden NFL 25, And More

    29 Jul 2014 | 7:45 am
    Microsoft is digging deep in its bags of tricks to convince gamers that its Xbox One console is the better option versus Sony's PlayStation 4, the latter of which is maintaining a somewhat large sales lead. Following the launch of a Kinect-less console for a reduced $399 price tag, Microsoft has joined forces with Electronic Arts to offer...

    It really goes without saying that 3D printing is awesome, but whether or not a printer is going to be a common sight in our homes down the road is yet to be seen. Unlike a paper printer, a 3D printer has far different uses, and most people might not have the need for something like that outside of experimentation. This is something that Amazon...

  • Sony Xperia Ultra VS iPad Mini; You Might Be Surprised

    Daniel Cohen
    29 Jul 2014 | 9:00 am
    The other day, Judie posted on Facebook that the 6.4″ Sony Xperia Ultra might replace both her Sony Xperia Z2 and her iPad Mini. I don’t see that happening for me, as the Z2 is so amazing. The Ultra is actually a great option from a financial perspective, but there are other reasons to consider it as well. Judie: The tweet that I sent (it auto-forwarded to Facebook) was the result of over a week spent with the Z2 and Z Ultra working in tandem. At some point, I realized that I hadn’t used my iPad mini even once, and the more I used my Ultra, the more I wished I…
  • 2014 Lexus LS 460 Shows Germans It Can Be a Good Sport

    29 Jul 2014 | 8:30 am
    In 1989, Lexus introduced its flagship sedan to the world, dubbed LS. Over the past 25 years the luxury division of Toyota Motor Sales has tweaked and honed this impressive alternate choice to the German hierarchy into its current form of the LS 460, and offers it in standard, long wheelbase, hybrid and, as we tested, F Sport forms. 2014 Lexus LS 460 F Sport/Images courtesy Lexus Lexus introduced the latest generation LS in the fall of 2012 as a MY2013 vehicle and at the same time brought its F Sport variant to the land yacht.

    We are on vacation in Woodstock, NY, and the local bookstore had a very entertaining comic in the window. If the picture isn't clear, it shows a 90lb weakling getting stronger from reading the complete works of Plato in hardcover, then smacking for using an ebook reader on the beach. Certainly one advantage to hardcover!   The post The Golden Notebook Nails Why Paper beats eBook originally appeared on Gear Diary.

    Samsung's tablet approach the last few years has been to toss every conceivable size into the stores to see if anything takes. They tended to all look they same, perform the same (not great), and vary by just an inch or two here and there. The Galaxy Tab S is different, though. It grabs you by the eyeballs and won't let go.Read more...

    I find your lack of barbecue utensils disturbing. The Darth Vader Lightsaber BBQ Fork will have you grilling on the Dark Side. Even the dark Sith lord needs to flip his food over on the grill. Sure, he could just use the Force to do that but why waste such powers on something like cooking? Does Vader even eat? How? This stainless steel bbq tool has a handle that looks just like the hilt on Darth Vader’s lightsaber. Grill like a Jedi master. Yes Lord Vader, I’ll take a hot dog. I know I originally said burger but I’ll just take whatever you have, thank you. Oww my neck,…

    Craziest Gadgets Jeff
    28 Jul 2014 | 11:53 am
    Keeping score out on the links can be difficult sometimes, especially when you’ve had a few uhhmm “adult beverages”. So keep your drink cold and your score accurate with the Golf Scorzie, the koozie that keeps score. Atop this foam drink cooler is a pair of rotating rings that keep score from 0 to 129. Just spin the ring after each shot or hole to keep your score. What happens if you score over 129? Then you’re probably drinking your beers too fast to even need a koozie anyway, right? Or just get two Scorzies and add them up (once you sober up, beer + math is a no no).

    Thanks to Bluetooth LE technology, the tiny goTenna addition allows smartphone users with iOS and Android to be able to text and share location information without cell reception. You can even save your phone’s battery and text in Airplane mode! The Brooklyn, New York based outfit invented their own closed loop system that relies on Bluetooth LE to broadcast its signal for instantaneous text (up to 160 characters) and GPS service for up to fifty miles. Though testing in an area riddled with real world obstructions, like Central Park, can limit that potential and reduce the range to more…

A 38-year old Scottish woman recently had a five-inch vibrator (possibly just a dildo, but five inches seems sad for a dildo) removed from her vagina after forgetting it was in there after a drunken night of kinking ten years prior. For reference, that is 9 years, 364 days and 23 hours entirely too long to have a vibrator in your vagina. The woman came to the Aberdeen Royal Infirmary after she had been experiencing symptoms including fatigue, incontinence and severe weight loss, and after performing an X-Ray, doctors found a five inch sex toy…

    Why would you need a WiFi adapter for your laptop, when one is built in? Well, the built in one might be broken, or only support an older standard. But this tool is really cool when not used as an adapter — but when used as an access-point. Hotels (and the more expensive ones do this more frequently than inexpensive hotels) nickel-and-dime you on Wifi connectivity. One of the ways they do this is by selling you connectivity to ONE device. ONE?! I’d bet most hotel guests have at least a smart-phone, in addition to their laptop, and possibly tablets, e-readers, wifi-equipped…

  • Food Waste Powered Supermarket

    Steven Teo
    29 Jul 2014 | 9:50 am
    Proving that there’s life beyond the dumpster for wasted food, a U.K. store just became the first in the country to be totally powered by leftovers. The Guardian reports that a Sainsbury’s store in the West Midlands of the U.K. is set to leave the national power grid in favor of food power created through the anaerobic digestion of food scraps – via a partnership with waste recycling company Biffa. Sainsbury’s, a popular U.K. retail chain, is already the country’s largest user of food energy and anaerobic digestion – it produces enough power to light up 2,500 homes each year. Now…
  • Solar Cell That Cools Itself

    Steven Teo
    28 Jul 2014 | 9:11 am
    Solar power cells need to stay relatively cool for the sake of both efficiency and longevity, but active cooling (like ventilation) isn’t practical; it’s expensive, and may block the very rays the cells are supposed to collect. To tackle this problem, Stanford University researchers have created a new form of solar cell that cools itself. The technique embeds a pattern of very small cone and pyramid shapes into the collector’s silica surface, bouncing hot infrared wavelengths away while letting in the visible light that generates the most energy. The result is a heavily…

For example, the first page is made of charcoal that can be used to set the fire, while other pages transform into an apron, aluminum foil, a knife sharpener, and a cutting board. The book was distributed to master barbecue chefs as a marketing tool, but a simplified version is in the process of creation and will soon be available in…
  • 3D Printed Earbud

    Steven Teo
    24 Jul 2014 | 9:03 am
    The fit on earbuds varies wildly, largely because each person’s earlobe is a unique and beautiful snowflake. Okay, maybe not beautiful. But if a pair of earbuds matched the exact shape of your ear, the days of painful buds that fall out too easily could be numbered. That’s the concept behind OwnPhones, a San Francisco-based start-up that has created 3D printed wireless earbuds that are custom fitted to the shape of your ears. The startup isn’t alone in the 3D printed earbud space. A few weeks ago, Normals came out of the shadows with a similar concept. And in much the same way,…

    There are refrigerators out now that have screens which will let you watch TV, tweet, and all sorts of useful Internet-connected applications. It’s primary function though, is to keep your food fresh. While we always try to keep practicality in mind, it’s hard to not be suckered in by fancy features. If you tend to go through food fairly quickly, and wish you didn’t have to run a giant fridge, then you might like using some of the old-fashioned methods of keeping things cool. Using clay to keep food and drink chilled has been a tried and true method for a long time. The…

    The nice thing about sitting in a hammock is having your entire body being supported. Aside from floating in water, it’s the easiest way to feel weightless. It’s definitely the best place for a nap when it’s warm and breezy out. However, they’re not generally made for more than one or two people. Even then, if you are sitting in one with another person, you would want to feel pretty comfortable with them, as there’s no way you’re going to have any personal space. If you wish you could lay around on a hammock that could hold more than 2 people comfortably,…

    By Bruce Schneier, author of recent book, Carry On: Sound Advice from Schneier on Security I’ve been reading a lot about how passwords are no longer good security. The reality is more complicated. Passwords are still secure enough for many applications, but you have to choose a good one. And that’s hard. The best way to explain how to choose a good password is to describe how they’re broken. The most serious attack is called offline password guessing. There are commercial programs that do this, sold primarily to police departments. There are also hacker tools that do the same thing. As…

I tested out a brown iPad 3 flip case in distressed brown, and was quite pleased with it. I only had minor quibble which I’ll get to later. Much like their name, the iPad fits snuggly in the case with the appropriate cutouts and holes for buttons, switches and cameras. The cover is a smart cover that works well and has a decently strong magnet that stays closed without requiring a crowbar to open it up.

  • The NFL is Focusing on Conditioning for Its Officials This Season

    Dave Aiello
    24 Jul 2014 | 6:43 am
    My sister pointed out this article from The Wall Street Journal which says that the National Football League is making aerobic fitness a priority for its game officials for the 2014 season. This is the result of several teams in the NFL using the no-huddle offense for a large percentage of their plays from scrimmage. According to the article, "Veteran referee Mike Carey, now an NFL rules expert for CBS, estimates referees run anywhere from 6 to 7 1/2 miles over the course of a game. This year, they'll have to do it at an unprecedented pace. Last season, teams ran 150% more plays without…
  • The MacObserver Publishes Fantastic WiFi Tips from a Former Apple Engineer

    Dave Aiello
    11 Jul 2014 | 12:02 pm
    I get a lot of requests for help from people who have performance issues with WiFi networks at home and in public. It's often difficult to help because most people know WiFi like they know electricity: as long as it does what they want it to do, they don't think about it. The MacObserver published a great article yesterday called 4 Wi-Fi Tips from Former Apple Wi-Fi Engineer. This is not a comprehensive how-to, but there is something in the article for many people who think fairly deeply about the WiFi systems they use. Just to give one example: in the article, Alf Watt says, "Use {the} same…

They constantly come up with articles that pique my imagination. Today they published an article which says that classic rock isn't what it used to be, citing data compiled from "25 classic rock radio stations operating in 30 of the country's largest metropolitan areas for a week in June". This is a fantastic article, in part because the author, Walt Hickey, built a scraper written in Python to compile the data from public play lists. I have to look back at this…
  • Ted King is My Sentimental Favorite in the 2014 Tour de France

    Dave Aiello
    8 Jul 2014 | 10:46 am
    During last year's Tour de France, I said that Ted King Should Still Be Riding in the Tour de France because he was eliminated after finishing Stage 4 7.6 seconds slower than the required time. King separated his shoulder in last year's Stage 1, managed to finish Stages 2 and 3 under the time limit, but was eliminated in one of the fastest team time trials in Tour de France history. This year Ted King is back riding for Cannondale Pro Cycling, and supporting team leader Peter Sagan who is a sprinter and one of the leading contenders for the Green Jersey. Another reason for me to root for Ted…

  • 3D Printing Gives BMW Workers an Extra Strong Thumb

    22 Jul 2014 | 5:54 am
    A novel idea to reduce stress in workers’ joints is being tried out at a BMW production plant in Germany. The Munich factory has given out 3D printed thumbs to workers, for them to use while they are putting together car parts. These so-called super-thumbs are more correctly known as thermoplastic polyurethane thumb protectors. They are made to size for each BMW worker by using a mobile scanning device to measure their hands. The thumb protector is then printed off using a 3D printer and fits snugly over the worker’s real thumb like a second skin. Becomes Rigid When Straightened The…

    The controversy caused by the removal of many links from Google has led to some of them now being reinstated. The issue came about thanks to the internet giant starting to comply with the European Court of Justice “right to be forgotten” ruling. The initial batch of removed links, to articles in the Guardian newspaper and other sites, included details on the former Merrill Lynch boss Stan O’Neal and Scottish referee Dougie McDonald, who was caught lying about a decision he had made. However, the articles whose links had been removed have now been reinstated. Peter Barron is the head…

  • Will Android TV Fare Better Than Google TV?

    8 Jul 2014 | 5:07 am
    Google TV looked like a good idea when it was first announced a few year ago so what went wrong? More importantly, what has changed since then to make Android TV from Google something that it more likely to be successful? The plans for Google TV were unveiled a long time ago now but it never really took off in the way that the internet giant expected it to. However, there are some differences with Android TV that might make the difference. For a start, it has been designed to fit in more easily with the technology we already have in our homes.

    29 Jul 2014 | 6:34 pm
    Painting itself in an altruistic, pro-consumer light, Amazon in a post posing as an "update" on the Hatchette standoff -- that has prevented customers from buying print or e-book editions from the publisher because Amazon refuses to fill orders -- explains that it is putting pressure on Hatchette (and other publishers soon to follow) to lower the wholesale price of e-books to where Amazon can make a profit on them selling them at $10 or less.

  • Electrolux UrbanCONE Jellyfish: The Future of Urban Clean Air

    24 Jul 2014 | 4:53 am
    Until now, altering your micro climate is confined to the comforts of homes and buildings. While that’s nice, it would be ideal if we could alter our surrounding micro climates outdoors too. The Electrolux UrbanCONE might just do that in the near future. It’s basically a jellyfish-looking drone that hovers above and around you, ceaselessly cleaning polluted air, creating a friendlier, healthier micro climate for you. It can be freely programmed, modified and extended, and it can work in tandem as a unified batch. It hovers effortlessly thanks to its ultra light construction, and…
  • Watch Futurama’s Intro In 3D

    19 Jul 2014 | 8:55 pm
    Remember those days you’re lazying on the couch getting ready for an episode of Futurama and you realized that you ran out of beer? Well thanks to Alexey Zakharov, a creative animator from Russia, you won’t even realize you don’t have the beer anymore. Made with 3ds Max, Nuke, Photoshop, and After Effects, his 3D rendering of the intro is some sort of amazing. Feels like getting a cool upgrade, like getting a salary raise or a new Ferrari, makes you wish the studios would hire him full time for a total remake. Enjoy! You can find the complete renderings here.
  • Don’t Throw Your Old Tech In The Trash!

    17 Jul 2014 | 6:22 am
    Unlike good whiskey or a nice leather belt, technology doesn’t get better with age. For most places, the market for decade old devices simply isn’t there and in a world where people camp overnight for the newest version of electronics, we must consider: what happens to our old technologies once we don’t want them anymore? For many, that answer is stored away in a drawer full of miscellaneous objects that you open every few months when you’ve misplaced something and you swore you put it in there. The collection of flip phones, Discmans and old chargers slowly grows with each passing…

It also has been enhanced with 13 degrees of hand dexterity and the ability to run faster, forwards and back, jump smoothly, and climb up and down the stairs effortlessly.

  • Microsoft looking to split controller design for mobile gaming

    Jay Garrett
    28 Jul 2014 | 7:06 am
    Ever since our portables gained touchscreens and ditched physical buttons gamers have done nothing but complain – and rightly so, I think. It appears, however, Microsoft can hear our cries. Patently Apple, of all people, has dug up some diagrams filed by Microsoft with the US patent office that show plans an Xbox-style controller that splits in half, and straps to either side of a tablet. Split controllers are nothing new, and Microsoft’s idea is far less extreme than the one proposed by Mad Genius. Third party cradles for mobile devices which split the controller as seen in the…
  • Blackhole – perfect for PS4 and Vita

    Blackhole is a platformer currently under development for PC/MAC/Linux. When I asked FiolaSoft Studio if they’re going to release Blackhole on PS4/PS Vita in the future, they replied by telling me that they have plans to bring the game to the Sony gamers, but they are focusing on the PC/MAC/Linux releases first. About the game: It’s the year 2121 and planet Earth is endangered by black holes. You’re one of the crew set on an ultimate mission: to eliminate and completely erase these black holes.

  • Sphero 2.0 hands on review

    Luca Colonnese
    17 Jul 2014 | 9:02 pm
    I’ve recently gotten my greasy hands on a Sphero 2.0 remote controlled robotic toy. Did it deliver the giggles promised in the advertisements? Overview The Sphero 2.0 is the latest evolution of the Sphero toy. Inherently comical, the tennis ball sized toy created a lot of buzz on the Internet when its first edition came out. Made possible mostly by the fact that they can sell it without a remote control since it requires a tablet or smartphone to control it which helped keep the costs down. The range if the original Sphero was limited at 50ft and the speed 3ft second, it did glow in…
  • Better Cooking Through Rocket Science [Flare Pan]

    15 Jul 2014 | 6:32 pm
    The pan that you use can make a tremendous difference to its heating efficiency and cooking quality. Flare Pans, which use FIN-X technology are the work of Oxford engineering professor Thomas Povey and his team of masters students. They claim that their pots will reduce the amount of energy required to reach temperature parity by 44%. These more efficient pots unfortunately come with pretty hefty price tags. A small 20 cm saucepan will set you back a hefty GBP 49.99 (~USD 85.00) – prices get significantly more expensive for bigger pots and pans. Then there is the other little issue of…

On top of that, it also includes a TV-B-Gone-esque TV killer. Mix all of that together with flashing colors, phaser and Enterprise sound effects and vibration feedback – and you have a remote that is probably a lot more interesting than the stuff it controls. As for build…

    To the growing contingent of Game of Thrones fans who are concerned that he might not make it to the end of his series, George R. R. Martin has two words to say – and one of them isn’t pretty. But are the worried fans really that far out of line? All men, as the saying goes, must die (or Valar Morghulis if you prefer). Martin is a husky man in his mid-sixties, which makes him a prime candidate for heart attack and stroke. He has been well-compensated for the many thousands of hours that he has no doubt spent writing the series, and many more hours have been collectively spent…

    The chalkboard wall paint idea is something that has been popping up for a while now. For those who are artistically inclined, the idea is not without merit – but there is a pretty big catch. As a high school teacher, yours truly deals with chalkboards on a daily basis – for up to three or four hours a day. In the classroom, I will take a well-made chalkboard over a dry-erase board or projector any day, but not in my house. The merits of the chalkboard are many: chalk is cheap, you can see how much of it is left, chalkboards work when the power is out, they don’t distract…

  • Projection-based smart watch raises $170,000 on IndieGogo

    15 Jul 2014 | 1:48 am
    Ritot is a new smartwatch that uses a pico-projector to project images on your hand. The team behind Ritot launched an IndieGogo crowdfunding campaign and managed to quickly raise the $50,000 they wanted. In fact, as of today they already raised over $170,000 (and there are 38 days left on this campaign). This is a great concept, but I have doubts whether it is actually practical. Will they indeed fit a pico-projector in such a tiny bracelet? Will the battery enough power to actually be usable? On one hand the projection distance is very small, and so it can be bright even with a low power. I…

    10 Jul 2014 | 1:23 am
    Researchers at Oxford University developed a phase-change based display. These materials, the same materials used to make some rewrite-able DVD discs, may enable ultra-low-power (non-volatile) full-color displays with a much faster refresh rate compared to E Ink displays.The researcher use small jolt of power to change the crystal structure of the material, which changes the way light bends when it hit it, and so it changes the color of the material.

    More and more people are following an unhealthy sedentary lifestyle. Modern technology may be partly blamed for this. It has allowed people to enjoy more and more conveniences that prevent them from exerting physical effort to achieve something. A typical workday for most people in these modern times no longer requires people to go out or work, in the physical sense. Office workers usually stay seated in their workstations all day. They do not get to burn the calories they take in. In short, people are not getting the right amount of physical activity they need daily. This can lead to an…

      They used to say Australian Aborigines didn’t like having their photo taken because they believed the camera would steal their soul. This was probably a myth begun by explorers who didn’t understand that the natives were just telling them to sod off. But if a camera could steal your soul, the Fujifilm X-M1 would be a pretty lethal spiritual weapon. This pro-level compact system cam packs a solid build, with a weatherproof body.

But it can also be hard to tune it in depending on where you are… which is where NPR One comes into play. Public Mixtape Essentially, NPR One operates a bit like Pandora. You pop in your headphones, fire up the app, and it will slowly learn your habits as you pause stories, rewind them, skip them, share them with friends, and so on. It won’t, however, limit the content just to what you absolutely like; it’ll mix in local and national…

The Dota 2 tournament, the fourth such annual event organized by the game's developer, Valve, was watched live online by more than 20 million people. At its highest, the number of people watching at the same time was over 2 million, a figure that Valve says doubled last year's peak concurrent viewership.

Terms of the deal aren't being disclosed, so we don't know how much Netflix paid for direct access to AT&T's network.

In a note today, Amazon explains that it's not actually looking for a particularly large share of the revenue on ebook sales: it's only interested in taking 30 percent, a fairly standard figure for digital store sales and the same figure that it says Hachette proposed in 2010.

For some time, Android has been criticized for their lax approach to third-party app security. Fake applications, or those that only claim to provide a service but actually do nothing, have been featured in the past as “top apps” recommended by Google Play. Now, a much bigger issue has been uncovered. A new form of malware could be using those apps to gain access to your…

    Auto updated Green Smoke offers. Just so you know that this Green Smoke review is more than just an advertisement.  I have personally been using Green Smoke e cigs since 2010.  I bought the Pro Kit and my flavor of choice is the Menthol.  I’m a true believer that e cigs are the best thing since the internet and Green Smoke is a high quality product that is worth every penny.  If you smoke, do yourself a favor – switch to e cigs and make it a Green Smoke.  You won’t be sorry. Use coupon code TOBSOL during checkout to save up to 10 percent on your Green Smoke purchase.

  • How to hook up a standard IDE hard drive to a laptop

    The newest of computers often don’t even have an extra IDE port for you to connect to. I just ran into a Dell that I had no way to hook up the hard drive from the old computer to. This, of course, made transferring the files from the old computer to the new that much more difficult. The best way to attach a regular 3.5″ IDE hard drive to an SATA only computer or laptop is to use an external case with either a USB 2.0 or FireWire (IEEE 1394) connection. Here’s a link to a decent one on Amazon: Sabrent Ultra Slim 2.5-Inch SATA to USB 2.0 External Aluminum Hard Drive Enclosure…
  • A Required .dll file, MSASN1.DLL Not Found

    Windows never fails to throw odd ones at me.

It would happen when attempting to load other programs as well. The fix was simple enough, though. In this machines case I just copied the msasn1.dll file to the Windows directory as well as the Windows\System directory. Now, you can attempt to run your programs at this point. If it gives you the same error still, fret not. The .dll has just…
