Get your brand into Apple iBooks

Apple has the new service iBooks running and pushing it further into the Apple ecosystem. iBooks currently is available in iPad and iPhone but with the new version of OSX Mavericks, iBooks will be available to laptop and desktop computers too.

The iBooks application for the iPad

iBooks is a great collection of books, in an electronic form, not just PDF though. iBooks can be interactive, include dynamic polls, zoom-in-and-out functinality, embedded videos and much much more rich features that can form up a book which is so much more than just a book, which is a lot by itself anyway. 

One idea is to create a book about your brand, informative and with all of the "things" you want your customers or potential customers to find, your products and services and much more. Of course you will need to stay true to the rule of what makes a book, a book. That is that the book must contain info, text, talk about something. Here then comes the second idea, to create technical manuals or educational books to be released by your brand in iBooks store, the complete and vast marketplace for the iBooks. 

The iBooks Store with millions of books available for purchase or for free

To create an iBook, you will need a Mac computer and the application called iBooks Author which is delivered from free via the Mac App Store. You will then need to decide on a free or paid publisher account and go through the iBooks author and publisher account creation via the iBooks Author application, accept the legal terms and finish the wizard. 

iBooks is getting more and more popular, with Apple investing a great deal of time and effort to push this as a new service with similar importance to iTunes store. Knowing that the Apple ecosystem has a lot of users loyal to the platform, students and bookworms, you may want to enter the iBooks fair to approach another kind of audience, that of the mobile book reading enthousiats and soon, every Apple owner in the desktop and laptop world.

Enable AMD's Radeon Chill feature for all games.

Since 2014 AMD has been following the tradition of releasing new performance and usability features in their December driver, and 2016 was no exception. Among the myriad of new features and enhancements, was also one that passed almost unnoticed, called Radeon Chill.

Stemming from AMD's acquisition of HiAlgo earlier in 2016, it offers the possibility of huge power and thermal savings while gaming, by monitoring screen movement and adjusting the frame rate accordingly. There is even the claim that it could also reduce response times since the GPU is not occupied with rendering as often.

Its only issue: it's not global, and it's based on a white list of applications to function. But fear not, for we are here. Using a trick as old as operating systems themselves, you can try to make it work with every title. Let's see how to do that.
Step One: Activate Radeon Chill. Doing that is fairly easy. Right click on your desktop and select "Radeon Settings":
