Android - How to Add a Dedicated Number Row to the Google Keyboard.
Add a convenient number row to the Google keyboard!   By default, the Google keyboard does not display a row of numbers at the top of the main keyboard. If you spend a lot of time typing numbers, there's an easy way to add a dedicated row of numbers to the top of the keyboard.
  Without the dedicated number row, you must use the "?123" button on the keyboard to access the numbers and symbols. We'll show you how to add a number row at the top of the keyboard.

What's the Difference: Disk Cloning vs Disk Imaging.
This question crops up quite a lot and the answer has more to do with procedure than the end result. Both disk cloning and disk imaging will copy the entire contents of one hard drive to another, including all data required for booting to the operating system. However, there are subtle differences which make each method suitable for differing purposes.

How Effective is Your Antivirus at Protecting Itself?
AV-Test is best known for its ongoing evaluation of antivirus protection and usability but just recently the German lab shifted gear and, instead of measuring how well antivirus protects our data and devices, decided to look into how effective these products are at protecting themselves.
