Valentine's Day Gift Idea: Amazon H...

Valentine's Day Gift Idea: Amazon Has Discounted Devices Through Feb 13

The definition of "last minute shopping" has changed. Thanks to services like Amazon Prime, you can order a gift with as little as 2 days notice with no financial or marital consequence whatsoever. (wink wink: 30-day trial located here)

Amazon has discounted several devices and device bundles through February 13th, hoping to create an attractive option for all of you last-minute shopping fans.

Amazon's Kindle Essentials Bundle includes a Kindle 6" E-Reader, Amazon Protective Cover and Power Adapter, as well as additional special offers listed on their site: List Price: $129.97 $94.97 (-35%) The best-seller 8 GB Fire with 7" Display and Wi-Fi is currently discounted by 20%, with additional Special Offers: List Price: $49.99 $39.99 (-20%) The Fire HD 10 Productivity Bundle is discounted, and gives you an edge over buying each item separately. It includes a Fire HD 10, 10.1" HD Display, Wi-Fi, 16 GB, Amazon Keyboard Case, Amazon Stylus and Screen Protector. List Price: $359.96 $279.96 Kindle Paperwhite, the e-reader that reads like a book, even in sunlight, sports a 6" High-Resolution Display (300 ppi) with Built-in Light and Wi-Fi. List Price: $119.99 $99.99 (-17%)

If you've completely run out of time, try Amazon Prime as your gift this year (hint: no shipping time required). It's not currently discounted -- but a year of free 2-day shipping, music and streaming movies (compliments of you, big spender) should hit the spot this Valentine's Day. And if you live under the same roof, you'll be able to use it too (just don't mention that part until later).

Watch hundreds of robots and drones in an amazing choreographed dance

Hours-long entertainment shows are a staple of the new year in many East Asian countries, but none is greater than Chinese Central Television's lunar new year gala.

The TV spectacular, which is said to be watched by 700 million people, featured scores of the country's best-known singers but they all risked being upstaged by robots as the Year of the Monkey was ushered in.

A crew of 540 humanoid robots danced in perfect step to a song by Sun Nan (??) against the impressive Guangzhou skyline.

It's mesmerizing to watch and a little scary too, especially if you're haunted by nightmares of a robot army taking over the world.

And just when the song approaches its climax, drones arrive! They numbered 29, according to Chinese media reports.

Google's rumored VR headset sounds a lot like Samsung?s

As Google goes on a virtual reality hiring spree, rumors about the company?s VR hardware plans are starting to take shape.

Citing unnamed sources, Financial Times reports that Google is working on a new virtual reality headset and a VR-optimized version of Android to go with it. The headset would come in sturdy plastic, with built-in sensors and lenses, similar to Samsung?s GearVR. Users would then insert a smartphone into the headset to provide the imagery and processing power.

Mozilla moves Firefox to a more flexible release schedule

Mozilla last week said it is changing Firefox's rigid every-six-week release cadence for a looser schedule that resembles what Google has used for Chrome since 2008.

In a post to a company blog, Mozilla said it would use a variable release tempo in 2016 with six-to-eight-week intervals.

Chrome has used a flexible schedule since its September 2008 debut, shipping a new edition approximately every six to eight weeks, but unlike Mozilla, has never set delivery dates ahead of releases appearing.

"Four years ago Mozilla moved to a fixed-schedule release model, otherwise known as the 'Train Model,' in which we released Firefox every six weeks to get features and updates to users faster and move at the speed of the Web," Mozilla said. "We studied the process carefully and learned a lot. We have also identified additional areas for improvement and it's time we iterate again."

The Pirate Bay gets into the streaming game

There's a new, free streaming service offering limitless television shows and the latest movies, but it just might put you in the sights of the entertainment industry. Infamous pirate download site, The Pirate Bay, recently rolled out a streaming service that is currently in beta.

The new streaming service isn't coming directly from TPB. Instead, the torrent-centric site has added support for Torrents Time, a browser plugin that lets you stream torrents from your browser. To use TPB's new streaming feature a user must have the Torrents Time plugin installed. Then it's smooth sailing on the pirate-ridden digital-streaming seas. Torrents Time even supports casting to a television.

If error messages appear when your PC boots, try this

Every time Muhammad Athar boots his PC, an error message pops up warning him of missing files.

Assuming that nothing else bad happens, this type of error message?coming up every time you boot and only when you boot?probably isn?t dangerous. It?s likely just the remnants of an autoloader that didn?t get removed properly. (An autoloader is a program that loads automatically every time you boot, such as your antivirus program.)

[Have a tech question? Ask PCWorld Contributing Editor Lincoln Spector. Send your query to answer@pcworld.com.]

To stop this annoying message, you must tell Windows to stop trying to load this non-existent file. How you do this depends on your version of Windows.
