How To Watch Netflix On Android Without Wasting Data

  How To Watch Netflix On Android Without Wasting Data Few things eat through data caps as quickly as a new season of your favourite Netflix show, but Android users can now reduce the app’s impact on their monthly data limits without reducing video quality. That’s all thanks to the the open-source AV1 video codec, which Netflix now supports for Android streaming. AV1 is notable for achieving better video compression without affecting video quality, reducing Netflix data usage by up to 20 per cent when compared to Netflix’s other video codec, VP9.

How to update Microsoft Edge on your PC or Mac computer to make sure you have the latest features and security fixes

  How to update Microsoft Edge on your PC or Mac computer to make sure you have the latest features and security fixes To update Microsoft Edge on a PC, you'll have to head to either the "About Microsoft Edge" page, or Windows' Settings menu. On a Mac, you can update Microsoft Edge through the menu bar at the top of the screen. Most updates for Microsoft Edge will install automatically as they're released, but you can manually check for updates at any time. It's a good idea to keep Microsoft Edge updated, as each update will patch security flaws. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more.

The so-called Surface Book 3 won't be a major design change over the popular Surface Book 2, according to Sams. That means it should retain its overall exterior look and signature detachable keyboard design, which set it apart from other laptops in general, including Apple and Microsoft's own laptops.

The biggest updates will focus on specs, like Intel's 10th-generation chips and Nvidia's 16-series of graphics chips. The top-end Surface Book 3 could come with professional-grade Nvidia Quadro graphics chips. Microsoft is also expected to raise the limit of RAM memory from 16 GB to 32 GB, as well as offering greater terabyte storage (1 terabyte equals 1,000 GB).

As for pricing, the Surface Book 3 should reportedly have similar price tags as the Surface Book 2 at launch, which started at $US1,149.

Microsoft will also reveal a new generation of low-power, low-cost Surface Go laptops alongside the Surface Book 3, which is being called the Surface Go 2 so far. The Surface Go 2 is also expected to be a spec refresh with few design chances.

Apple's best-kept secret is its refurbished Mac store, where you can get the latest 16-inch MacBook Pro for almost $400 off .
Apple's refurbished store is the best place to get Apple devices for several hundreds less than if you bought them brand new I've only bought a MacBook Pro in 2017 from Apple's refurbished Mac store, but the experience was so good that I recommend it to anyone who asks. Most recently, Apple's latest 16-inch MacBook Pros appeared in the refurbished store, and it's the best way to get this laptop without paying the full price of a brand new unit. $US360 might not seem like much of a discount when you spend over $US2,000 on a new laptop, but there's a lot of stuff you can buy for that cash.
