Things to Ponder, Reparations, Gun Control & Criminal Voting Rights

Opinion Things to Ponder, Reparations, Gun Control & Criminal Voting Rights USA – -(Ammoland.com)- There's a push to change laws to permit both criminals serving time and ex-criminals the right to vote. Guess which party is pushing the most for these legal changes? If you guessed that it was the Democrats, go to the head of the class.

Windows 10’s “Sets” App Tabs Are “No More”

Mega Pixel/Shutterstock Sets was going to bring tabs to File Explorer and other Windows applications. An early version of Sets once appeared in Windows Insider builds, but Microsoft pulled it. Now, according to Microsoft’s Rich Turner on Twitter, Sets is “no more.” We were really looking forward to Sets, as we’ve always wanted tabs in the File Explorer as well as console windows like the Command Prompt, PowerShell, and even Linux Bash shells on Windows. Tabs in other applications like Note...

What’s New in Chrome 74, Arriving April 23

The stable version of Chrome 74 is set to land on April 23rd. It will include a dark mode on Windows, Incognito detection blocking, support for media keys in PiP, various Chrome OS improvements, and a lot more. It’s worth noting that while these are all planned features in Chrome 74, there’s always the chance they don’t end up making it into the final release and get pushed to 75 (or beyond). Still, we do expect to see at least most of this stuff in 74, even if still behind a flag. Dark Mode f...

Daily News Roundup: YouTube is On Fire

After years of feuding, Google and Amazon have finally made up. As a direct result, YouTube is coming (back) to Fire TV, and Prime Video is getting support for Chromecast and Android TV. Finally. This change comes some 16 months after Google first pulled YouTube from Amazon’s Fire TV platform, which was an aggressive response to Amazon’s decision to stop selling Google’s Chromecast. The whole thing was petty and generally a lose-lose for consumers. This week’s change, however, makes things “rig...

Assistance with Kindle Oasis 2, KFX, and margins.

Hi all, Hope you're well. Just looking for some thoughts on margins and typesetting on the Kindle Oasis 2 (2017). Specifically, if you look at the images attached, you'll find three consecutive pages of a book; you will note that the "cut off" margin for page differs on the three. This seems to be common in a lot of books I'm reading on the Oasis, and it's quite annoying. I don't recall experiencing the problem on my Kobo; whatever I put on it, seemed to format identically. Any thoughts on what...
