Making Computer Use More Child-Friendly with KidslockWindows.com

ads here too


Calling all computer savvy parents! This week, a BETA version of KidslockWindows.com is being released in the Windows store. An App that provides a security system for parents to oversee their children’s activity on the computer has never before been offered for the Windows platform.

The idea for this App was created by a parent of two young children with multiple Windows-based computers in their home. He struggled himself to monitor his children’s computer activities, and imagined creating a platform that would allow him to decide which programs and activities his children could access on their home computers. With over 200 million copies of Windows 8 sold, the software is now a central part of more than 1.5 billion people around the word. Unfortunately, the Windows platform is missing a critical safety measure for percentage of its customers.

Ryan Saville, founder of KidsLockWindows.com wanted to solve the issue: “We need a simple solution that will protect our children when using tools like the Windows Store. I enjoy my kids playing on the computer, I just want to have better control on what they see and do.”


Thus KidslockWindows.com was born, both out of necessity but also out of need. KidsLockWindows.com will be the first software of its kind focused on providing a ‘Kiddie Lock’ lock for parents. Saville states: “Imagine a clean white interface, showing large icons with a simple timer that counts down and locks after a certain time period, giving peace of mind back to parents but still allowing our little ones to still grow their necessary computer skills.” In the future the company expects the software to be subscription similar to an antivirus.

Microsoft has established a “Family Mode” within the platform allowing you to block or allow specific websites where as KidsLockWindows.com wants to provide a ‘security blanket’ over the entire operating system allowing parents to just show the icons or educational games you want your child to use.

Presently, the company is searching for parents that want to become BETA testers to help trial this new software the registration is open till May 21st, 12:00 PM. Visit KidslockWindows.com to join the BETA test.

LG G4, Greatness Awaits

Excited to know what LG G4 features are? Well, get more excited as today is the day for the global technology innovator LG Electronics is set to globally launch its much-awaited flagship LG G4..

With G4’s predecessor, LG G3, bagging the “Best Smartphone Award” at the Mobile World Congress just a month ago, LG has its fans gripping at the edge of their seats, leaving only subtle hints on what the newest smartphone superstar has in store.

Based on the global teaser that LG released, the G4 is set to change the game aesthetically. The invite creates the impression that the G4 will drive away from its signature sleek metallic look and advance to the sophisticated feel of stitched leather.

What can also be taken from the global invite is that LG G4’s rear camera will be the first to sport an aperture level of f/1.8, the lowest aperture set for any mobile device to date. For the aspiring and avid phone-tographers, this innovative technology will let the lens take in more light, leading to even more stunning picture quality and crystal-clear photos even when taking action shots or moving photos any time of the day.

This is backed up by the leading global components and materials manufacturer LG Innotek, claiming that this is the most advanced technology available for any smartphone out in the market today.

With the countdown left to hours until the global unveiling of the G4, LG launches the official teaser video online giving the world a sneak peek of greatness that has yet to come.

Watch the video!

Acer Iconia Tab 10 Gets More Engaging in Education

Another technology to feast on and here's what it is all about. Read the details below.

Last April 23, 2015, Acer introduces its new Acer Iconia Tab 10 for Education, an Android 5.0 tablet that enables digital education in schools. Designed with the classroom environment in mind, the Acer Iconia Tab 10 has a durable, comfortable design, a 10-inch full HD Gorilla® Glass 4 display, and Acer Precision Plus make learning mobile and enjoyable. Acer is working with Google to join the Google Education ecosystem, bringing accessible technology and richer resources to classrooms.

“As technology has been incorporated more broadly across K-12 classrooms, schools want to deploy devices that are easy to use, durable, manageable, and budget-friendly, and can be used as the foundation for a lifetime of learning for students,” said Maverick Shih, president of Acer BYOC and Tablet Business Group. “The Acer Iconia Tab 10 for Education is an excellent choice for districts rolling out new technology throughout their entire school for 1:1 initiatives or even for a single mobile lab. The durable design, full HD display and interactive features will help make learning more creative and collaborative.” Durable Design with Features that Promote Learning

Designed for the education environment, the Acer Iconia Tab 10 is durable, as it stands up to heavy-use schools and classrooms. The reinforced front frame withstands bending and twisting, while minerals are added to the rear cover to increase toughness. Plus, the anti-slip textured finish is comfortable to hold and helps students keep a firm grip on the tablet. Even the 10.1-inch display is more durable thanks to Corning® Gorilla® Glass 4 that is damage- and scratch-resistant. The anti-fingerprint coating keeps the display clean and reduces smudges. The 10.1-inch 1920x1200 resolution Full HD display has Zero Air Gap technology for brighter images and better visibility in sunlight, so students can take it outdoors for labs and experiments. Also, when it’s time for reading, students can put their Iconia Tab 10 in Reading Mode to reduce the blue light emission by up to 60 percent for less eye strain.

The Iconia Tab 10 is durable while being light and portable, so it can be used both in the classroom and for outdoor activities. It weighs only 540 grams (1.19 pounds) and measures only 260w x 176d x 9.7h mm (10.26w x 6.93d x 0.38h inches). The new tablet features Acer Precision Plus technology, which enables more varied and accurate content creation. Tablets with Acer Precision Plus have touch sensors that are more densely placed than those with general touch panels, and enable students to write, draw and create with pencil or stylus in a finer tip at just 2mm. This extra precision also lets students pinpoint anything on the display with greater accuracy and experience fewer mistakes.

The Iconia Tab 10 has NFC built in with setup and sharing capabilities. Teachers or IT administrations can set up a whole classroom of tablets in minutes simply by tapping them together. It features Acer’s Iconia Suite of creativity and touch tools that let students simplify tasks and get quick access to frequently-used apps with intuitive touch gestures. The Iconia Suite includes note-taking app EZ Note, screenshot capture app EZ Snap, gesture wake-up app EZ WakeUp, and the EZ Gadget widget for quick access to essential tools.

Acer Iconia Tab 10 for Full School Day

The Acer Iconia Tab 10 delivers up to 7.5 hours of battery life(2), so students can use them for several classes throughout the day. Powered by an Intel® Atom™ quad core processor, the Iconia Tab 10 can multi-task with multiple tabs and apps. The new tablet features 2GB of DDR3 RAM and 16GB, 32GB or 64GB of on-board storage(3). The tablet can be connected to share video and to other peripherals via USB 2.0, NFC and Bluetooth 4.0. The SD card reader supports up to 64GB memory cards to access and transfer files.

“We’re pleased to continue our collaborative efforts with Acer to offer a new resource for students and educators. Leveraging an Intel® Atom™ processor, the Acer Iconia Tab 10 provides the power and performance necessary to enhance the learning experience,” said Navin Shenoy, vice president and general manager, Intel Mobility Client Platforms. “Tablets with educational software and durable form factors are transforming how teachers and students interact and learn in the classroom.”

Model, Availability and Pricing

The Acer Iconia Tab 10 will be available in North America in May with prices starting at US$299, and in selected countries in EMEA in May with prices starting at €299.

There are several optional accessories schools can choose to further enhance learning and teaching on the Acer Iconia Tab 10. They include a stylus, protective film, bumper case, protective sleeve and wireless keyboard dock.

Exact specifications, prices, and availability will vary by region. To find out about availability, product specifications and prices in specific markets, please contact your nearest Acer office or retailer via www.acer.com.
