Do Students Need a Computer?

Students Need Computers

If you are currently preparing to head off to college in the fall, you may be wondering what technology you need. Most students are on a budget, and this can make it difficult to know what to buy, and you may even be wondering if you can get through your studies just using a tablet. This article explores what you should think about technology wise before you start your course.

Can I Use My Tablet?

The short answer is probably yes. If you already have a tablet that can connect to the internet and access things like Google Docs for word processing your essays, then it’s quite possibly suitable. And, you can always pop into your college library to access a desktop PC if you should need one. However, there are some huge drawbacks to only having a tablet for your studies.


How to Use Mic and Headphones with One Jack PC

Two Plugs One Jack

It certainly is a difficult task to use two devices that require an audio jack and only one jack is present on your PC. Around two decades ago when PCs and laptops were starting to become a norm in the world, systems back then came with two ports. One for the headphone jack and one for the microphone jack.

In today’s day there is usually a single port given for users where they need to use their headphones along with their microphone. Hence, the question becomes, how can a user use both devices using a single port. There are two major ways you can make use of both jacks: with and without a splitter.

Apart from these two sections, we shall also be discussing as to why users make use of single jack headsets when used without the splitter. Don’t skip anything in between or you might miss out on the few good tips we have to give to you.

Three Finnish Inventions That Changed the World

Finnish Inventions

Finland is known for many great things, including northern lights, fantastic winters, and epic Eurovision contestants. What Finland isn’t best known for, and probably should be, is its talent for great inventions. It’s not necessarily recognized on a global scale as a hub for technology or innovation, and so its creations are often overlooked.

So, in this article, we’re going to celebrate Finland and some of the best things to come from the country. Check them out below.

Nokia Phones

The original Nokia phones are now looked back on fondly as reliable and robust pieces of kit, especially when compared to today’s modern smartphone. Most of us had a Nokia 3310 during our childhood, and will always remember Snake as being one of the first (and most fun) mobile games.

Top Mobile Game Genres

Top Mobile Game Genres

Mobile gaming is a massive industry. The days of playing Snake 2 on your Nokia 3310 are long gone. Now, you can play pretty much any genre of game on your mobile. Here are the top mobile game genres.

Action / Adventure

This is probably the most popular genre on the mobile platform. Games such as Assassin's Creed Pirates and Shadowgun Legends are examples of action/adventure games. The player typically plays an agile protagonist that has a special gun, sword, or magical ability. They must go through levels full of enemies and solve puzzles to complete the game.


These are games that don't take themselves too seriously. If the player fails, they get a game over screen and can try again. Arcade games often have bonuses, power-ups, or extra lives to give the player an advantage

5 Best Video Games with Casino Minigames

Far Cry 3 minigame

If you think about it, a lot of video games over the past few decades have included luck-based minigames with wagering, so the distance between video games and casino games have never really been that far apart.

Gamergate, Too: Zoe Quinn's Statements Undermined by...Zoe Quinn

Zoe Quinn vs Zoe Quinn

Zoe Quinn is no stranger to controversy. One might even argue her entire career has been built on the house-of-cards foundation of accusations of sexism and abuse, setting her up as a heroic overcomer in the male-dominated industries of video games and comic books.

But Internet controversy turned to real life consequences barely two weeks ago when Quinn took to Twitter to make public accusations against former fellow game designer, Alec Holowka, claiming sexual abuse and false imprisonment. The immediate fallout for Holowka -- the loss of his career and the shattered public perception -- drove a man who already suffered from emotional troubles to take his own life.

#MeToo had been successfully weaponized--and the weapon was deadly.


Apex: Legends Leaked Cinematic and Game Play Trailers Destroy Fortnite

Everything you've ever seen in Fortnite just got destroyed by a 2-minute trailer for the second season of Apex: Legends.

The cinematic trailer features action sequences, executions, humor, and DRAGONS! Fans of Apex: Legends have been concerned about the lack of frequent Fortnite-style updates because that's all they knew before Apex. Respawn Entertainment has made it clear that they refuse to 'crunch' their employees to push out updates that may only last a week before being vaulted.

The wait was worth it.


Dangerous Opinions: Facebook Disconnects 250K Fans from Bounding Into Comics

BiC Censored

The landscape of opinion is a shifting mass of quicksand these days. The Internet, once a bastion of free speech -- and all the ugliness that comes with that -- has undergone a transformation to rein in opinions, protecting the eyes and ears of the many from anything that might be deemed offensive by the few.

It began with politics. When the deplatforming of Alex Jones and his InfoWars site occurred, the 1st Amendment let out an "oof" of having been punched in the stomach. No one heard it over all the cheering, however, and the social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter were emboldened to continue their pogrom against information and opinion.

The idea was to stifle politics with which the social media overseers disagreed. The inherent problem with that is this: everything is political. And so we find ourselves at a point where a comic book review website (not this one, yet) loses its presence on Facebook.


Insomniac's Spider-Man Swings Into Position for Best Game of 2018

Spider-Man PS4 Best Game of 2018 from Insomniac

As with prior years, 2018 was a wide-open field of new electronic and online games, and our readers let us know their favorites. Of particular interest this year was the inclusion of some old-school games given new twists -- tabletop and board games, which, while never excluded before, made their presence known well enough that we can safely say that rolling dice and drawing cards is going to continue to be as much of a favorite pastime as pressing buttons.


The i-Top Challenge Puts New Spin on Classic Toy

iTop Challenge

Goliath Games proves you don't have to have a completely original concept to introduce an interesting and playable toy. Sometimes, all you need to do is take something that's been around a while--and put a new spin on it.

Granted, it's not the first time someone has set out to renew interest in the basic toy that uses centripetal and centrifugal force (see, it's science!) to entertain children. There have been different takes through the years on the flying disc and the hula hoop.




Of course, this time we are talking about that most primal spinner, The Top!

No, not this classic supervillain from The Flash. The toy you spin and watch. Then spin again and watch again.

It's actually a lot more fun that it sounds.


Is Your Kickstarter Data Secure?

Kickstarter Security

It’s something everyone worries about, even if only a little, when putting all your information into some online form: Will my data be kept secure? Who is going to see this other than myself and the agent on the other end? Can I trust this website?

For the most part, with trusted entities, that answer is yes. Barring the occasional intrusion from bad actors working outside the network of a company, you can usually trust that your information won't be mishandled. (Sold to other companies, sure, or even made available to the government -- but that's a story for another day, right Mr. Zuckerberg?) 

So it was a bit alarming when a comic book artist began posting on his social media account the screenshots of personal communiques between Kickstarter and Richard C. Meyer, aka YouTube personality and pariah Diversity & Comics.
