Monitor everything with the business dashboard Cyfe

You’ve been on the internet like forever, and you probably manage a profile or page on every social media platform, in addition to your Google AdSense and AdWords accounts, your blog on Wordpress, your newletters through MailChimp, your PayPal account to buy something online, your Google WebMasters and Analytics profiles. Pfff, that’s too many don’t you think? Do you really keep track of all these things online every single day? How much time does it take?

There is an app that can probably help you a lot, and we tried it, it’s called Cyfe.

What’s that Cyfe thing?

Well, the thing is, the bigger your presence is online, the more data you have to manage. Cyfe has developed a cloud based service that solves this problem by allowing you to easily monitor and share all of your vital business data from one single location in real-time.

How it works?

Once you sign up at and confirm your email (the usual standard procedure) a dashboard will appear. On this dashboard, which you can and you probably should name through the menu on top, you can add widgets that are categorized according to their use, like advertising, blogging, social media, web analytics etc.

Once you choose a widget of your interest, let’s say Instagram, a configure widget option appears, this is where you add your account and username. That’s it! You can do the same procedure for all widgets available and even categorize them yourself in different dashboards.

On the sidebar you can select dashboards, add users and edit your account. There is a free version available with limited features, like the number of dashboards you can create, the number of users, the historical data and the number of widgets, although Cyfe gives you the option to invite your friends and for every friend who joins you will get a free widget.

If you choose a premium membership you’ll be able to share dashboards privately with your team members and friends, get more widgets, historical data, exports, sharing options, customize your account with your own logo that matches your company brand, share read-only dashboards publicly with virtually anybody in the world and customize your account with your own domain name.

Is it really worth?

Well, we tried it and it’s really useful, you can save a lot of time from low-value tasks, and focus on your online strategy and creativity. It’s a tool that could really help a small business monitor everything concerning its online activity, and it’s not that expensive. We could say it is value for money, taking into consideration how much time you could save.

So give it a try and tell us what you really think!

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":
