Nearly everyone who has sat at a desk knows about Microsoft Excel. But if you’re picturing a simple, boring spreadsheet in your head, that’s only scratching the surface of its capabilities. Just for starters, Excel is an essential tool in the field of data analytics, allowing users to collate disparate mounds of data, visualize trends and chart a course for new business plans.
The capability to do all those things is the difference between a simple clerk and a highly paid data analyst. And no matter what your experience with Excel, the Ultimate Microsoft Excel Certification Training Bundle is the fastest way to get that knowledge – and the job that goes with it.
The six-course bundle kicks off with a primer on Excel’s broader capabilities before diving into complex functions like pivot charts and macros. There are a couple of dedicated courses on data analysis, including the Power Query and Data Analytics Expressions (DAX) tools. All in all, it’s more than 30 hours of lessons, examples, and resources, with a full certification waiting for you at the end.
Right now, the full Ultimate Microsoft Excel Certification Training Bundle is $34. Read the rest
Small form-factor (SFF) machines have emerged as a major growth segment in the desktop PC market. Performance per watt is an important metric for such systems. Intel has pretty much been the only game in town for such computers, given that AMD platforms prior to the launch of Ryzen could barely compete on that metric. The NUC (UCFF) and mini-STX (5×5) were introduced by Intel as the standard motherboard sizes for the SFF market. We have previously seen AMD-based NUC-like platforms (namely, the Zotac ZBOX CA320 nano back in 2014), and earlier this year, ASRock became the first vendor to announce an AMD-based mini-STX system – the DeskMini A300. Read on to find out how the DeskMini A300 stacks up against other contemporary SFF PCs.

The co-creator of Googles beloved-yet-discontinued Inbox app, and former lead designer for Gmail, has released a new Chrome extension that considerably simplifies Gmails web interface.
Michael Leggett, who was Gmails design lead between 2008 and 2012, released the Simplify Gmail extension on April 2nd the day after Gmails 15th anniversary which was also the day Inbox was discontinued. Leggett left Google in 2015.
The extension makes numerous small tweaks to Gmails web interface. The left and right sidebars are hidden behind a pair of menu buttons, the search bar at the top of the screen is minimized by default, and the button to compose a new email has moved from the top left to the bottom right.
Another prominent change is the…
Anyone who is acquainted with the concept of iOS app development knows that testing an app is a crucial part of the development process. However, many people don’t know about an especially important subset of testing beta testing. Also referred to as end-user testing, or pre-release testing, or user acceptance testing (UAT), beta testing involves the product being tried out by a small section of the target audience. At this stage, apps undergo real-world testing, and the early users’ experiences are analyzed to make essential changes before the app is added to the App Store.
About iOS apps, while several mediums enable beta testing, they are known to be quite complicated. There is, however, one alternative that has proven to be quite handy: TestFlight. Launched in 2011, it does away with the inconvenience that accompanies distribution and management of beta builds. It was this ability to ease the entire process to a great extent that led to Apple integrating TestFlight into App Store Connect.

The upcoming Google Pixel 3a will be available in a new purple color scheme, according to a leaked render shared by Evan Blass. This is expected to be one of three colors the phone will be available in, along with black, and a white variant thats already popped up in leaked photos and a render shared by Blass just yesterday. The purple Pixel 3a has a yellow power button, compared to the orange one on the white model.
Maybe its a coincidence, but the purple color scheme could have something to do with Avengers: Endgame, and its purple-skinned, golden gauntletd antagonist. Last week, Google announced that a collection of five Marvel superheroes would be joining the Playmoji AR lineup exclusively on the Pixel 3, and eagle-eyed viewers…

The internet is full of spoilers, making it a dangerous place to hang around if youre trying to steer clear of what happens in Avengers: Endgame, Game of Thrones, or any other TV shows, movies, or video games that youre still catching up on. Even when you think youve got things under control, Googles autocomplete feature has spoiled things before. URLs can contain spoilers, too.
In addition, trolls can embed spoilers in unrelated content. When Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released, the films biggest plot twist was hidden within a misleading video titled something like LMAO funny Madden 16 glitches. (Needless to say, there were no funny Madden glitches to be found.)
Of course, the most logical suggestion for avoiding them is…

Director Harmony Korines newest feature, The Beach Bum, seems the likely follow-up to his 2013 candy-coated crime caper Spring Breakers. Substitute your Vanessa Hudgens for Zac Efron and your James Franco for Matthew McConaughey and the casting decisions to break away from type seem borderline formulaic. Tonally, the films are similar, with wandering, boozy shots and dialogue seemingly lifted right from your acid casualty neighbor and color cues taken from him as well.
Where Beach Bum diverges, however, is in substance. While leisure and pleasure seem the ultimate goal of both McConaugheys Moondog and the girls of Breakers, the method of getting there differs wildly. Crime sprees and social climbing are the girls’ preferred method. Laying back and taking the world in one toke at a time is Moondogs. While heavy smoking and sleeping around might seem like a philosophically void path to enlightenment, its really the only way there in an America whos ethos is to constantly tell you to want more, buy more, be more.
Every Hollywood movie builds up this idea, from foundational kids’ animation to aspirational teen drama to middle-aged career comedy and beyond. And what better way to respond to that constant pressure than to do and be nothing at all? Sure, Moondog has written fairly successful poetry and given the odd public speech, but the practice he preaches is the one he lives, a sort of contagious cosmic hedonism. Partying with him will leave you a happier, more content person, even if you happen to lose a foot, a husband or a few million dollars in the process. Read the rest
Battle royale video games are not really power fantasies, especially if youre one of the majority of players on the losing end of a match. Being dropped onto an island with fellow scavengers and scrounging around for what little firearms and ammo you can get your hands on creates a tense, anything-can-happen atmosphere. Youre supposed to feel vulnerable all the time. Thats not the case in Fortnites big Avengers: Endgame crossover event. The limited-time game mode is all about feeling overly powerful like a superhero to spectacular effect.
Whether youre on the side of humanity, wielding one of the many heroic weapons taken from the Marvel universe, or whether youre part of Thanos army with its jetpacks and energy weapons…
