If you use Microsoft Windows 8.1 Enterprise, Professional or N you may have noticed your Nokia Windows Phone 8 has likely not been able to be detected and therefore useless especially trying to build Enterprise Apps. So, what does one do? We’ll, I searched far and wide for the right answer but NEVER found the answer. Some things claimed to work for people but they had a WP7 or using […]

As some know, the new PiCAST (2.0) is out and is now STABLE. This is my project that was aimed against Google originally as I was pretty upset with how they released and announced Chromecast. Get it at: http://github.com/lanceseidman/picast. Why should I care? I am a consumer and the American way, to speak up and fight for injustice but also a techy who is very much progressive and feel Open Source anything can […]
As some close to me know, I make little electronics and always looking to make stuff that help people. My hobby for the last year has been RC/Autonomous Drones. My subject? Originally the Raspberry Pi & a 3D printed tricopter base with servo’s, gearbox motors, and a HP Motor. Since August, I have used the Windows Phone, Nokia Lumia 920 to control the device as I did with my […]
As many are becoming rapidly aware, BitCoin is easily becoming recognizable as a possible Currency, cause really much like the USD, valuable only based on the belief that’s behind it. You may have seen some small prototypes & hardware shown to you on my G+ Feed or perhaps you got here on accident. Nonetheless, your continuity to read is intriguing every word in hopes that another BTC Wallet that is […]
If you haven’t been following me or on my Angelist page, Wearing Digital during getting the hardware created isn’t my main goal. More and more the US Government in cities are shrinking, but mainly public services. This includes Firemen, Police, Paramedics, and so forth. Why is this a problem? Due to Global Warming or Climate Change (if you’re a dick), we see more flash floods, tornadoes and other natural disasters. […]
Do you ever wish you could Tweet something and it eventually just leaves Twitter? We’ll, I personally don’t have a use for this but what if you’re running a campaign or contest… Turns out an ex-engineer from Twitter decided to make Spirit, an App to drop your Tweet with just a Hashtag. Yes, just add #1m to Kaboom or #10m to even #30d. I am just wondering how many new […]
As you may have seen my previous video (first) of the Website Launching to show how the PiCAST will work (video below), we can now do YouTube Videos and other items in the works BUT you can now get PiCAST on your RasPi with little effort! So, just simply download the “installer.sh” and chmod it so it can be launched with hi-privileges and that’s basically it with the exception of […]
I was one of the first people to get a Google TV and I even got one for free from Google. Any website I worked on I would offer GTV capabilities for few bucks extra, no biggie… But as I see GTV getting nowhere and fast, the new Google Chromecast has me intrigued and when I went to buy one? Sold out! When you have people who see a $35 […]
As you may know, I am a HUGE fan of the Raspberry Pi and have been playing, making a lot of videos recently around it. One thing I found out and love is Minecraft for the Raspberry Pi. I made a script that will Download, Extract, and Run the Minecraft executable on its own. It even uses WGET for resuming a failed download as some people report losing connections to […]
As you’re probably fully aware, Twitter has come out with a new App through a separate venture called Vine. Basically Vine is an animated GIF with sound, OK a MOVIE with Jump cuts. The idea is, you get basically 6 seconds to piece together a short video and upload it to Twitter because it is Twitters friend? You can actually watch them in your Twitter feed, sorry InstaGram (a brand […]
Someone asked me if the Raspberry Pi could use external sensors and items like the Arduino Microcontroller, which it is completely possible. Especially since the PI has headers much like the board of an Arduino. The good news is, if you plan to get serious with your Raspberry Pi and wish to even integrate it with your PI, LadyAda and the gang over at AdaFruit.com make it VERY possible! In […]
As you may or may not know, Kids Corner is a new feature in Windows Phone 8 that allows parents to let their kids use their phones without sending odd texts or accessing content they shouldn’t be (e.g. “Daddy’s special websites”). The idea is, you [the parent] can choose which App’s, Games, and even Multimedia your son/daughter can have access to. So when you’re begged 100 times to use your […]
Did you know Windows 8 has a bunch of little Easter Eggs? I think in this recent TechMeShow video I made is proof. I’ll show you how in seconds to turn the Task Manager in to a Performance Monitor that can just stay in the top of your screen to anywhere you drag it! Make a Performance Monitor from Windows 8 Task Manger (TechMeShow).
I was recently responding to a thread on XDA Forums as someone wanted to make a button in their project and have a transition/fade to another “Page”. So, thought I would share that quick little snippet below. <Button x:Name=”btnNameHere” Content=”My Button” Margin=”0,15,0,15″> <Button.Transitions> <TransitionCollection> <EntranceThemeTransition /> </TransitionCollection> </Button.Transitions> </Button> This is intended for your XAML File, it should work with C#, C++, and probably VB Projects.
So you’ve started to use Windows 8 and noticed the beloved Start Menu/Orb doesn’t exist, right? You’re either happy or you’re ANGRY! Well, in my recent TechMeShow video, I show you default ways of having a Start Menu-like experience OR just get an actual Start Menu back and literally in seconds and for FREE. Give Windows 8 a Start Menu in Seconds! (TechMeShow). The great part about Classic Shell, the […]
