Good News for Android Tablet and SmartPhone Lovers

plus Safe Internet Access for XP/Vista Users

Naythan aricle

Android (Marshmallow) is now available for computers. Works with or without a touchscreen. You now have a good, free, familiar alternative to Windows. Android can be installed to replace Windows, or installed beside your existing Windows installation so you get to choose which system to load when you power up your computer; this is called a “dual boot” setup in tech-speak. A dual-boot setup is a good way to access the internet safely from an older and now obsolete Windows XP or Vista system which should not be used for internet access any longer!

-I can convert your computer to Android and set up your apps for €60. Note this will erase all your data. If you want me to save your data and copy it back into your new Android system there is an additional charge.
-I can “dual boot” install Android while keeping your current Windows system and data intact. Dual boot install with Windows 7 is €80, for Windows 8/10 the charge is €100. If you want me to copy your Windows data files into the Android system there is an extra charge.
-Another choice is for me to create an Android bootable USB Flash drive (memory stick) or DVD for you. Just plug it into your computer and power up. Your computer will now be running Android while not affecting your Windows system. With this setup any saved data will be lost when you shutdown the computer. A benefit of this method is that none of your passwords or banking details remain in the computer after shutdown, so a lost or stolen computer won’t mean you have to cancel all your cards and change all your passwords. The cost for this is €30, plus the cost of the Flash drive or blank DVD. I will need to change a few settings in your computer for this to work.

Breaking News:  FilmOn TV Has Stopped It’s Free Service
It looks like FilmOn is no longer providing a free service on their site or with the HDi player. This apparently also blocks other services/sites that used the free version of FilmOn as a content source.  Viewing FilmOn now requires a paid subscription. Of course, we only use FilmOn to view programming we are legally entitled to watch. DigameXtra does not promote or encourage TV piracy. If you liked FilmOn you should consider subscribing. Contact your TV service provider if you want info on free alternatives, or if that is not possible, email DoctorLaptop.
