If your computer has an active internet connection, you can download Sumo on your android, move the file to your computer, intsall it and run it. Then you can download in the same way all the proposed updates on your android and transfer again the installers to your computer and install them. It won't work on the android because it scans your computer for installed programs, and needs an active internet connection (on your computer) to search for updates.

Well, it is 2021 now: and the ONLY Media Player I use on my old tablet is VLC Player for Android ... it has improved Quite a Bit since the last review!

I blame any sync failures between audio and video in online river (S T R E A M I N G) playback on my antique tablet and NOT VLC ... but I could be Wrong.

Listen to a Randomly Chosen Pop/Rock Song by Year for Free 2 months 3 days ago Bruce_Fraser Yes

Hi rhiannon,
Nice find.
However, when you describe it as "randomly generated pop/rock song", that's confusing. I was expecting music composed ("generated") by an algorithm. Perhaps a better phrase is "randomly chosen..."
Or perhaps you're missing a word and you meant "randomly generated LIST of pop/rock songs"?

How To Switch from LastPass to Bitwarden Password Manager 2 months 4 days ago sbouniol Yes

LastPass is also storing the vaults on US and EU servers which are also part of the same FVEY.
- Bitwarden is open source you can check the source yourself
- Bitwarden gives you the option to run the server yourself on your own personal machines. They make it very simple using docker images for instance.
- Birtwaden self hosting also means that you can setup your servers on your intranet and force synchronizations to only happen on your own secured networks (dedicated secured VLAN unroutable from the rest of your intranet and/or public internet, even a secured wifi in an airgap room for phones)

How To Switch from LastPass to Bitwarden Password Manager 2 months 2 weeks ago Rabbit57 Yes

I was interested to read Jim Hillier's article about exportng the Lastpass vault to a .csv file to import nto Bitwarden as I needed to do this myself. However, the main problem is there is no mention this is only valid for windows based systems and is not in anyway valid for Android as after spending 2hrs online with technical support they admitted that you can not export within Android you have to scrounge access to someone else's windows PC. So a ,point I thought well worth mentioning in your article as you have about trackers

How To Switch from LastPass to Bitwarden Password Manager 2 months 2 weeks ago zep321 Yes

One of those popups was especially egregious as it stated "Your adobe flash player may be out of date. Download latest version here". The other I
recall asks to download an unidentified app with no description or origin.

Understood, if it's just advertising.
But the popups requesting signups and downloads have the characteristics of malicious stuff which might actually turn traffic away from your site.

When I received the notification from LastPass, began searching alternatives and found Bitwarden, Thought I ought to check Gizmo to see what you're recommending and the first thing I saw was this article. Good work.
By the way, every time I visit your site lately, I'm BOMBARDED WITH SPAM (POSSIBLY MALWARE) POPUPS. Wonder if others are experiencing the same issue.

How To Switch from LastPass to Bitwarden Password Manager 2 months 2 weeks ago Deleter Yes

Good Day - I was interested in this freeware so I looked it up. I will not say whether it is good or bad, however, I will mention a couple of things that I didn't realize. First, Bitwarden is connected to MS cloud which is hosted on their Microsoft Azure servers. Next, because it is connected to MS it is part of The Five Eyes (FVEY).
The rest I leave up to you to search.

This JPG Optimizer Works Entirely in Your Browser 3 months 2 days ago OllieJones Yes

This is terrific! 20 years ago I used this same Independent JPEG Group (IJG) code, an earlier version obviously, to do the same thing as this WebAssembly version does -- reduce the size of JPEG images bound for an archive. It gets its power from

1. reducing the JPEG quality parameter to eliminate hard-to-perceive details in the image, and
2. recomputing the Huffman tables used for losslessly encoding the compressed image into the file.

The second one is a big deal when dealing with raw images captured by a device like a camera. The JPEG implementations in those cameras always use the same Huffman tables, so they can't take advantage of the optimization that comes from customizing those tables for each image.

You could contact Sticker Mule and let them know what you experienced, it sounds very odd to me.

Remove Backgrounds Instantly Online for Free 3 months 4 days ago ctwist Yes

I tried Trace, but I couldn't get it to work:
- I created an image that contained 2 uploaded images. I then changed my mind and wanted to remove the 2nd image, but I couldn't see any way to do it. I dragged it out of view and added a 3rd image. I then added a background image.
- The background image was automatically zoomed, which gave the wrong appearance. I couldn't see any way to unzoom it.
- The preview showed the 1st and 3rd images on the correct background. I downloaded the composite image. The downloaded image contained the 1st and 2nd images, and the background image was replaced by a solid orange colour. There was an extra thick orange border, so the images seemed to be floating in the air.
- I tried 2 more times (without uploading the wrong image) and got similar results.
- This product seems to be an alpha version.
