How to Calibrate Your HDTV and Boost Your Video Quality in 30 Minutes or Less Don't know about you... but TVs I've owned have Store and Home modes, Store is horribly bright, high contrast, Home is sensibly done. Last time this article came around it only needed a DVD player. Now you've made it even harder to do. You *can* use a DVD player, but considering no DVD player is capable of 1080p/i display, it wouldn't make much sense. That said, "Store" or "Cinema" or "Vivid" is the mode warned against in the open.

storage Overview This API has been optimized to meet the specific storage needs of extensions. It provides the same storage capabilities as the localStorage API with the following key differences: User data can be automatically synced with Chrome sync (using storage.sync). Your extension's content scripts can directly access user data without the need for a background page. A user's extension settings can be persisted even when using split incognito behavior. Manifest You must declare the "storage" permission in the extension manifest to use the storage API. Usage To store user data for your extension, you can use either storage.sync: or storage.local: When using storage.sync, the stored data will automatically be synced to any Chrome browser that the user is logged into, provided the user has sync enabled. When Chrome is offline, Chrome stores the data locally. Confidential user information should not be stored! The storage.managed storage is read-only. Storage and throttling limits Examples

How to Build a Computer from Scratch, Lesson 4: Installing Your Operating System Ah, good eye! So, generally, your motherboard runs all RAM at the lowest speed (correct me if I'm wrong on any nuance of that particular fact, guys). As I mentioned in part 2, RAM speeds don't really matter. You're not going to get any noticeable difference from 300MHz in your RAM. However, where those RAM speeds DO come in useful is if you overclock your processor. Many of today's processors are tightly linked with the RAM, meaning that if you raise the clock speed of your processor, you also raise the clock speed of your RAM. So in the end? RAM speed do provide performance increase, visible in memory intensive task, such as photo editing, CAD or gaming. Your problem is easy to solve. Hope this helps. :) (please keep posted) I had this problem with my new build I bought some 1600 ram but it was running at 1333 on auto. Also, if I recall correctly, there are dividers associated with the bus speed and memory speed so it's still possible to overclock the CPU and keep the RAM in spec.

Getting Started: Building a Chrome Extension Extensions are made of different, but cohesive, components. Components can include background scripts, content scripts, an options page, UI elements and various logic files. Extension components are created with web development technologies: HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. An extension's components will depend on its functionality and may not require every option. This tutorial will build an extension that allows the user to change the background color of any page on It will use many core components to give an introductory demonstration of their relationships. To start, create a new directory to hold the extension's files. The completed extension can be downloaded here. Extensions start with their manifest. The directory holding the manifest file can be added as an extension in developer mode in its current state. Open the Extension Management page by navigating to Ta-da! Although the extension has been installed, it has no instruction. <! What's next?

The Best PCs You Can Build for $600 and $1200 Making Your First Google Chrome Extension Martin Angelov The Google Chrome web browser is slowly growing in popularity. This is no surprise, as it is a great browser, and is backed by no other than Google. It also provides great tools for web developers and I find myself using it more and more (actually Firebug is the only thing keeping me from crossing to the other side). With the introduction of extensions, Google Chrome became even more agile and powerful. In this tutorial, we are going to create a simple extension, which puts a small icon next to Chrome’s address bar, and, when clicked, will fetch Tutorialzine’s RSS feed and display a fancy preview of our latest tutorials. First a few words about extensions. How Extensions Work Extensions in Google Chrome are basically webpages. The extensions are, however, treated a bit differently than your regular webpage, which is displayed in the browser. You also have the benefit (or the limitation) that your extension runs only on one browser. Tutorialzine's Google Chrome Extension <!

But let's say you want to take that library to go? This article is a wiki. Step 1: Host it somewhere Most web hosts offer data plans around $10 per month that come with plenty of storage and bandwidth to hold and serve your music.
