    Xbox One Games Not Loading? Console Too Slow? Here’s Something That Can Help 

    Have you ever found yourself in the middle of a heated gaming session on your Xbox One only to suddenly have your game slow down, or seen things freeze when there weren’t any problems earlier? Some people have also reported problems with loading games where you keep seeing the loading screen of the game but it doesn’t actually load.

    The issue might be with the cache on your console, so before you try re-installing the game or sending your console for repairs, try clearing the cache. This handy how to should save you some trouble if your game suffers from slowdowns, freezing, or is unable to load. Unlike Xbox 360, the Xbox One does not have a menu option to clear the cache on your console. However, clearing the cache is really simple and you just need to follow a few steps.

    There are two methods you can try and follow. The first has a single step, and might be the quickest way to solve your problem. The first method is to just hold the power button for 10 seconds, which will reset the console. In case that doesn’t work, there’s a slightly longer method you can try.

    Windows 10 Shares Wi-Fi Passwords With Your Contacts – Here’s How to Disable It 

    Microsoft will be releasing Windows 10 later this week. The new desktop operating system comes with a number of new features including some that have been borrowed from Windows Phone, company’s own mobile operating system. One such feature is Wi-Fi Sense, which has many security enthusiasts and users alike worried.

    Wi-Fi Sense, for those unfamiliar, is a networking feature that lets users share their Wi-Fi credentials with friends. But it is how it does it wherein lies the rub. The app scans through a user’s Facebook account and Outlook contacts, and shares the username and password with their friends.

    But as you may start realising, not everyone connected to your Facebook account is a trustworthy friend. Furthermore, not everyone you’ve exchanged emails with is a friend either. This is precisely the point security firms are presenting before users.

    In Microsoft’s defence, the company says that the password it shares with one’s friends is done so over an encrypted network. Furthermore, the password itself is encrypted as well. The company also says that a device connecting to a network doesn’t interact with other connected devices. “They won’t have access to other computers, devices, or files stored on your home network, and you won’t have access to these things on their network,” it notes on Wi-Fi Sense’s FAQ page.

    But that’s not the only problem with Wi-Fi Sense. The feature also automatically connects you to crowdsourced open Wi-Fi networks. Security firms have repeatedly advised users to not connect to an open Wi-Fi network.

    Security firm AVG, for instance, is taking some time to remind us the potential threats of open Wi-Fi networks. “As we’ve explained several times before, not all free or open Wi-Fi networks are secure and others can be deliberately malicious. Accessing the Internet on these hotspots can lead to your traffic being intercepted by an attacker, known as a ‘man in the middle’ attack.”

    Perhaps the biggest problem with Wi-Fi Sense is that it is enabled by default on Windows. But you can disable it by going to Settings > Network & Internet > Wi-Fi > Manage Wi-Fi settings. Here you can see all Wi-Fi Sense related settings and disable the ones you want.

    iOS 9 Search Showing Too Many Results? Here’s a Simple Fix 

    One of the best new features of iOS 9 is Spotlight search. It has been a key feature of iOS for long, but this time it has received new features, such as the ability to show search results from third-party apps. While this is a great feature, if you have a lot of apps installed, it can clutter your Spotlight search results, making it hard to actually find what you were looking for.

    If every single app on your iOS device tries to show its search results in the same feed, then Spotlight can become unusable. There is an easy way to keep some apps out of Spotlight search results. Here’s how to remove the clutter from Spotlight search.

    Here's How Carnival Games Are Designed to Scam You 

    Aimée LutkinYesterday 11:00amFiled to: carnival scamsmark roberscamsGames6321EditSend to EditorsPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalink

    If you’ve ever tried to win that super big stuffed animal for your sweetheart at the ring toss and just ended up embarrassing yourself, it’s possible that you’ve long suspected that carnival games are rigged. It won’t win you any prizes, but this video explains the mechanics of exactly how you’re taken for a ride.

    Mark Rober is a YouTuber with a background in engineering who makes videos about practical design. He spent time at an amusement park collecting data to explain all the ways the games there are put together to make your chances of winning as remote as possible. According to Rober’s findings, some games are far more difficult to win than others, and he even offers some tricks to make your chances of winning slightly higher.

    Rober breaks the games down into three categories: games of chance (like tossing a ball into one of hundreds of cups), games of skill (like throwing three pointers at the basketball hoops), and games that are for sure total scams (like the ladder climb). But the line between the first two categories and the third are thin; take the basketball shot for instance.
