Surface Music Kit Show up in eBay with Only $11.99

Do you have the memory about Surface Music Kit, the unreleased accessory from Microsoft’s now-abandoned family of blade concepts for its Surface devices, now has popped up on eBay recently.

And the popped up Surface Music Kit of Microsoft is only on sale for $11.99 dollars on eBay, and you can go and purchase it then.

Back during the launch of the Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 in 2013, Microsoft showed off what was to be the first in a line of accessories, called blades, for the Surface family. Called the Surface Music Kit, the blade would take the spot of the keyboard on a Surface device and give access to touch sliders and buttons to help with music creation and remixes.

This is such cool music device, but it is unknown why Microsoft abandoned it at that year. Microsoft, though, is always doing things unexpectedly, not long ago, the Forward Cut Surface Mini just appeared in the leak pictures.

The Surface Music Kit quires to work together with the independent Surface Music Kit APP, which automatically turn on when connected to the blade, and it can be configured in more detail in the software. From there, the app, combined with the 16 keys and sliders on the blade, let you do things like loop and mute tracks with a tap. The keys are also pressure sensitive, so you can do some pretty unique things from within the software.

Last but not the least you should have known, according to the official, the blade supports Surface Pro (original), Surface 2, and Surface Pro 2.

How Do You Usually Uninstall Applications on a Mac Computer?

it is so importantly to use a computer, no matter Windows, Linux or macOS in daily life to work or study, in the age of new media information, people user computer to search, chat, mail, shop, bank, read the news, and watch videos online, so you can say how can totally say you can’t live without a computer? Same as in computer, it’s quite important to uninstall app/software/program to ensure it goes well to perform other apps.

Classical Method to Remove app on macOS

Today, we are going to talk about what you are going to do when you uninstall an app on macOS? In my case, I’d like to say I have tried third-party removal tool for help with my removal matters for a while, and I feel like it’s safe and quick for users, but I know there are many users still use the most common and classical method to remove things in Mac OS X: Trash and ~Library search.

osx uninstaller

Unlike Windows operating system, instead of using Control Panel to let you remove unwanted applications, users just use the easy Trash to delete some apps they don’t want in masOS.

To do so, open “Finder” << Go to the “Applications” folder << Select the target<<Drag it into Trash, or right click icon select “Move to Trash“

Or open Launchpad click and hold icon in a while until it starts to wiggle. Then click the “X” that appears on the left upper corner.

This is just a half of process to remove app on your Mac, you have the much more important thing to do to finish all removal.

To do so, you need to:

  • Open “Finder”
  • Go to Menu Bar, and select Go > Go to Folder…
  • Type “~/library/” in the box, hit Go
  • Search the files in the name of the target (take Kid Pix Deluxe 3D for example) in Application Support, Caches and ApplicationSupport
  • Once they showed right-click to delete all of them
  • You can also type the name of Kid Pix Deluxe 3D in the search box of ~/Library
  • Delete all the select targets then.
  • Finally, right-click Trash, choose Empty the Trash to confirm your whole removal.

uninstall applications

Be careful and cautious enough to delete those leftovers of the target, because once you have deleted it wrong, it would rather to infect other installed apps or cause damage in your Mac system. And some troubles will occur:

  • You can’t install XXX app successful;
  • Some related files found on your Mac;

I think most people came through with this: many leftovers of uninstalled app XXX found on hard drive in the later used of my computer, and I just can’t ignore these files always remained in it. this is the disadvantage of manual approach might bring to users, thus, I’m totally tired of this, until I search help though internet then I found Osx Uninstaller—the third-party removal tool I have mentioned above.

Dara Khosrowshahi will be Uber’s new CEO

The Uber officially announced late Tuesday evening that Dara Khosrowshahi, who’s the former Expedia CEO for the past 12 years, will be its new CEO.

The ride-hailing giant’s board of directors chose him to replace chief Travis Kalanick earlier this week. In a message to employees, Uber’s senior management confirmed the truth of Khosrowshahi’s appointment.

“The Board and the Executive Leadership Team are confident that Dara is the best person to lead Uber into the future building world-class products, transforming cities, and adding value to the lives of drivers and riders around the world while continuously improving our culture and making Uber the best place to work,” the team said in the message sent to employees that was also posted on its website.

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal earlier Tuesday, Khosrowshahi said he was still in the process of finalizing his contract with Uber but planned to take the job.

Khosrowshahi himself said, “This has been one of the toughest decisions of my life,” Khosrowshahi wrote in a letter to Expedia staff that was obtained by Recode. “I’ve had the privilege to run Expedia for 12+ years now, and most of you who have been on this journey with me know it has not been easy going.”

He also added, “I have to tell you I am scared. I’ve been here at Expedia for so long that I’ve forgotten what life is like outside this place.”

After that, Arianna Huffington, who’s a member of the company’s board, congratulated Khosrowshahi on Twitter.

Now that his new CEO job is official, Khosrowshahi will greet Uber employees at an all-hands meeting at the company’s San Francisco headquarters on Wednesday.

You’ll see Uber’s full announcement letter to employees about Khosrowshahi’s hiring below:

Team,

We are delighted to announce that Uber’s Board has voted unanimously to appoint Dara Khosrowshahi to be our new CEO.

Dara came to America at nine years old when his family escaped Iran on the eve of the Iranian Revolution. He grew up in Tarrytown, N.Y., trained as an engineer at Brown, and spent many years at IAC serving as Chief Financial Officer and in various operational and strategic roles.

In 2005, he became CEO of Expedia, which he built into one of the world’s leading travel and technology companies, now operating in more than 60 countries. He has four children and not surprisingly loves to travel, one of his favorite trips being to the Angkor Wat temples in Cambodia where his wife Sydney said yes to marrying him.

We’re really fortunate to gain a leader with Dara’s experience, talent and vision. The Board and the Executive Leadership Team are confident that Dara is the best person to lead Uber into the future building world-class products, transforming cities, and adding value to the lives of drivers and riders around the world while continuously improving our culture and making Uber the best place to work.

Dara will be joining us tomorrow, August 30, for an All Hands. Add your questions for Dara here, and stay tuned for a calendar invite with more details. He’ll also be meeting with employees around the world in smaller groups over the next few weeks, and spending time with drivers.

Please join us in welcoming Dara on what promises to be an exciting ride!

   chrome-vs-firefox

It’s returning! Mozilla is going to release new browser of Firefox 57 to fight back Google’s Chrome browser! The battle will begin in November after the launch of Firefox 57.

Firefox is hardly discussed today, and its usage has cratered from a high of over 30 percent of the desktop browser market in 2010 to about 12 percent today, according to Mozilla, citing stats from NetMarketShare. And Firefox’s share on mobile devices is even worse, at less than 1 percent, according to the same firm. People keep asking is Mozilla Firefox died from the public. Though the usage of IE browser is go down, Mac has Safari, but the fighting days between Chrome, Opera and Firefox (latest tutorials) seem long ago.

“In many ways, we went through a time that you don’t get to survive,” says Mark Mayo, senior vice president for Firefox and a member of Mozilla’s decision-making steering committee. “Somehow we’re not dead… and it feels like we’re picking up speed and figuring out what to do.”

On June, Firefox finally unveils its faster, more memory-efficient browser, Version 54 is the first to use “multiple process” tech that has been available for a while now on Chrome, Safari, Edge and other browsers. Now, Firefox is running heavy, complex websites will influence other tabs less, making the web run better overall on Windows, Mac and mobile devices. Can version 54 of Mozilla Firefox browser sane Firefox?

“With today’s release, Firefox uses up to four processes to run web page content across all open tabs,” Firefox VP Nick Nguyen wrote. “By separating the tabs into separate processes, we make better use of the hardware on your computer, so Firefox can deliver you more of the web … with less waiting.”
