First Look: Upgrading the USB Cable With BelayCords

BelayCords Reversable USBBacking Kickstarter projects can be iffy at best. I learned that when backing the The FreedMan Chair in late October of 2013. Now 527 days later, the project has yet to materialize, though they are close. The benefit of backing smaller projects appears to be how much faster they can turn a pledge into a real product. This was the case with BelayCords; A USB cable replacement for the stock Apple cable (with support for others too). With a pledge date of September 9th, 2014, the BelayCords I ordered took 210 days to arrive.

How To Prepare Bootable USB Drives For Windows/Linux Installations

I have found a number of tutorials on the Internet that describe how to take a regular bootable ISO image and place it on a USB flash drive, but none of them really laid out what utility was needed and what ones won’t work. There are a number of uses for this since most of the newer computers that exists today can boot off of USB drives. If you place your Windows installation disc on a USB drive -installing Windows again is breeze because you don’t have to worry about scratched discs or other related disc reading problems. Also, installing from USB allows you to directly edit files (if you use an answer file or OEM drivers) and you’re installation will be a much faster process than reading off a traditional optical disc. In fact, if your computer doesn’t have a disc drive, it likely does have a USB port that can be booted from.

There are no more results.
