For todays post I decided to post about AMD. As you may know here at SFI it is AMD month and some awesome stuff is happening too! But not only are we doing AMD all this month, Curtis @SFIndustries is cool enough to host a giveaway. If you are interested ask @SFIndustries for more info! But let’s get moving on a few reasons why to use AMD!
1. AMD has a amazing community that you can chat to. Not only can you chat to them you can blog about your builds. If you are interested AMD also hosts a few giveaways for this community. This community is called the “North American Influencer”
2. AMD creates amazing products like nobody else, not only do they create products thy put love into what they do and they love why their doing it!
3. AMD has amazing support! If you are having trouble you can visit AMD and they will try to help you!
4. AMD products are affordable but durable. This is one thing that matters when you buy a product.
But if you are trying to hackintosh we are sorry but OS X does not support AMD.
Do you ever need to go onto Facebook? Especially for those powercuts on Facebook chat or just a good ol’ hi or bye. Well the Facebook app Doesn’t just do the hi and byes, you can use Facebook app to view people’s profiles and comment. But I want you to read this post about the Facebook app.
Timelines. Timeline is a sort of a new feature, but it’s been around for 2 years. Facebook have said we don’t want to leave out the mobile like most apps do. So they integrated timeline. You can view people’s profiles all the way like on the desktop version of Facebook.
A good way to chat. When you go select someone to chat to and you escape it dosent entirely mean its done. It leaves bubbles. The bubbles are on the side of your screen and it fits in with the app so well it dosent clog all the space.
Groups and Pages management. Facebook isn’t a app for managing pages, but it does it well enough. With Facebook you can create a group and manage it. If you can’t get onto desktop Facebook using this feature for a page/group is handy.
Feel free to buy it off the AppStore for $0 which means its free!

The saying “everyone is on the Internet” isn’t true. Did you know that 2/3 of the world can’t get Internet access? There are other countries in this world that aren’t fortunate enough to have internet access. So having “loon” it could help people access the Internet!
Now say if there is a natural disaster and all the power went out. How would you access the Internet? Why wait a month for lines to go up, when it could only take a week! There was a Loon placed at Christchurch, New Zealand. This was a mature and great act that Google committed. Christchurch has had some severe earthquakes and have suffered seriously with the damages and loss of internet. In times like this, internet is crucial, because people need to make connections with one another, family; friends.
Loons is a smart and innovative project! This is a genius move and it will help the world get online, which is one of Google’s goals. Even if this project fails, they will redo and keep on testing! It can only get better the more they focus on it.
So what do you think about loons? Internet for everyone! Everyone deserves Internet. It is amazing!

You may or may not of heard… But Windows Blue is the new upcoming upgrade for Windows 8. It will be free as long as you have windows 8 already installed! So let’s take a deeper look into the new upcoming features of Windows Blue!
The start button is coming back! Well it’s bringing back a traditional feature called the start button! It will be in the same place, bottom left corner! But it won’t bring up a windows 7 like menu, it will just take you back to metro.
Here is a photo I saw of the desktop with the start button.
Are you sick of safari or other web browsers? Don’t want to pay for a browser? Do other browsers not have the features you need? Well mercury should suit you!
Mercury is a browser which is free on the AppStore, it is a nice browser even for the odd google! It has a good friendly user interface (UI) I will give you some awesome features!
You can download photos and videos in the background. Now not much browsers that are free have the option I download, so been able to download is a bonus!
The Adblock feature is a great feature if you want to block ads. In my opinion using a Adblock is very rude and it dosent help the owner. But if you want to can have it on, but by default it’s off.
Now, a unique feature iv never seen in my life of using a iPod is that this web browser can trick websites as to thinking its IE or chrome! Now this is one cheeky feature, but it’s helpful if you want to display desktop sites!
Now mercury is a free app, you can download it for free! Also give it a 5 star, but it deserves 10 stars! It is such a nice browser for free! To get it and remember to give it this!;
Awesome people to follow!
