Had this problem a while back on my work computer, the hard drive came pre-partitioned and I needed to change the layout because the main (C:) had very little storage, about 160GBs or so out of a 500GB hard drive, so since nothing was on the 500GB side just yet I just deleted it and repartitioned it, but if your case is not so simple, this tutorial should help you out.
Google’s confectionery legacy of Android operating systems has enough digital sugar to make you nauseous. It all started in 2009 with Android 1.5 Cupcake and now five years later, Google ‘s infatuation with sweets lives on through KitKat. KitKat is a great…Read more ›
I was feeling highly nerdy last night and decided to try VirtualBoxing Android 4.4 KitKat, because why not. For the most part it was really simple and I got it up and running in no time.
NB: When you are using your mouse to control the VM you need to go to the bottom, where you’ll see the mouse with a green tick or something, well click that and change it to disable…
That’s a quick fix to your cursor not working in Android’s touchscreen environment, when you do this though, you will need to hit the host key (Right CTRL unless you customized it) to leave the VM, other than that works very smoothly on my machine.
This question has been bothering me for the past months since I started this blog. Should I show ads on my site or not?
Well for me the answer is somewhat complicated, so I decided to test it for myself and see if it was worth the hassle.
For those of you who visited this site over that past weeks, particularly on mobile devices would have noticed a small banner ad at the bottom of posts.
This site gets on average 100 visits per day, which converts to around 700 visits a week. Now going with the ad impressions recorded by Google AdSense for the entire month. I had 1500 ad impressions and made a whopping 1 cent. Yep you heard me 1 whole cent.
Now if I do a bit of maths, let’s say I wanted to cover the monthly cost of this website which is $25, I would need 150,000 ad impressions a day, which should earn approximately $1 a day.
Now at this point it would be far more profitable to sell T-shirts, mugs, posters and other trinkets rather than showing banner ads on my site.
Now to be fair, Google AdSense is a CPC (Cost per click) platform and not a CPM (Cost per Impression), but let’s bet real when was the last time any of you clicked on a banner ad.
There is however a huge difference in earnings for persons who use DFP (Doubleclick for Publishers) but if you’re already using DFP then you don’t really need my advice.
So there it is, if you’re running a small website like this one, and wondering if Google AdSense would help you make some extra cash, the answer is no.
