Remote Desktop is now on Chrome web browser

Remote desktop refers to a software or operating system feature that allows a personal computer's desktop environment to be run remotely on one system (usually a PC, but the concept applies equally to a server), while being displayed on a separate client device. Remote desktop applications have varying features. Some allow attaching to an existing user's session (i.e., a running desktop) and "remote controlling", either displaying the remote control session or blanking the screen. Taking over a desktop remotely is a form of remote administration. 
            Chrome remote desktop
Tools like remote desktop access have been invented, to help ease the pain of tech support.
Thanks to Google’s Chrome Remote Desktop, now available on the Web.
Chrome Remote Desktop actually isn’t that new. It has been around for as long as Chrome OS and Chromebooks have been around. The only difference, at least for now, is that you can use it directly in your web browser, specifically Chrome. That is, if you’re the one remotely accessing someone else’s computer.

The way it works is still the same. The other end, that is, the person whose computer you will access, will still have to be installed the Chrome Remote Desktop extension. He or she will then generate a PIN that you will use to complete the connection and have access to their computer from your side.

So why the new web browser version? That’s because the old version, which exists as a Chrome web app, will soon be gone. Google has decided that the app path isn’t exactly going as planned and will be scrapping those completely. And one of those is its own Remote Desktop app.

Read: 9 Tricks for Saving Mobile Data On Your Android Phone

At the moment, the Chrome Remote Desktop is still labeled in beta, so it isn’t something you should depend on just yet. Even Google’s support pages have not yet been updated and still point to the old ways of doing things. Fortunately, that old way is still accessible and completely usable. At least until the web version rolls out in stable form.

MTN Hourly YouTube Data Plans and Subscription Codes

There are a lot of things to learn online today especially by watching or streaming YouTube videos. MTN YouTube data plans are very attractive for this purpose. This new MTN hourly YouTube data plan was launched on a lowkey{secret}. These plans come in two forms, you can either subscribe for a 1 hour plan or a 3 hours plan. Both have different price and data allowance, but they both aren't unlimited.
                                             mtn youtube hourly data plan
The price of this newly launched YouTube streaming plan sure wouldn't worry your pocket as it seems to be very cheap. It is also better than using your regular monthly data bundle to watch movies on YouTube. however, it is data capped, MTN would have gained more customers to their network this new YouTube data plan was unlimited.

MTN Hourly YouTube Streaming Activation Codes 

                                          MTN Hourly YouTube Streaming Activation Codes           
You can subscribe for the MTN video pack in two different ways which are by dialing *131*8# to access the data bundles menu and making your choice of the hourly data you want. Or by dialing the codes below to subscribe to your preferred hourly plan directly:

How To Watch YouTube Videos on 9mobile Network for Free (Free Browsing)

Streaming YouTube videos is absolutely free with 9mobile CLIQ4DNITE … but with conditions attached! This was announced some days back on their twitter handle.
When you get any of 9mobile monthly data plans, Youtube video streaming is absolutely free for you from the hour of 1am - 5am. A very good reason why they have chosen this odd hour for this free youtube streaming is not far fetched, as Midnight is an offPeak period, where they have less load on their network, since most people would be asleep. It would be cool though if it was around 10pm – 5am?
This must definitely be for Vigilante night surfers or those that find it difficult to sleep at night. This is a good development and I must commend 9mobile for it, because there are really a lot to learn from streaming on YouTube. Those that always watch movies on YouTube at night will find this handy.

Note: If you face any difficulty streaming at midnight (1-5am) YouTube videos for free as promised by 9mobile, change your internet settings APN from etisalat to 9mobile and you are good to go.

What do you think?

No internet access in Ethiopia because of National exams in progress

Ethiopia said it had deactivated its internet services on Tuesday. it’s not because of a major technical issue with telecom providers. It’s actually because of the nation's year 10 and 12 school students as well as its university students are in the midst of their exams.
A Google transparency report registered sharply dropping numbers of Ethiopian visitors to its websites on Tuesday.
It's the second time in recent months that Africa's second most populous country has turned off its mobile data service, which most businesses and consumers rely on for internet access.
The leak led to the exam being cancelled.
While the Ethiopian government had admitted to temporarily disabling internet services, it offered no specific explanation for the countrywide outage.
Far from being a yearly occurrence, this is actually the third time in 12 months that Ethiopia has shut down its Internet. In July 2016, the government shut down access to Facebook, Twitter, and Viber after university entrance exam questions were leaked online, Africa News reports.
"Mobile data has been deactivated," deputy communications minister Zadig Abrha told AFP, declining to elaborate further.
A spokesman for the state-owned Ethio Telecom did not respond to multiple requests for comment.
Home to both the headquarters of the African Union and the UN's Economic Commission for Africa, Addis Ababa has gained the nickname "Africa's political capital".
But officials at both institutions said their internet was cut on Tuesday afternoon but returned Wednesday, while average Ethiopians were still unable to connect via their phones or modems, which use mobile SIM cards.
Ethiopia has been censoring its internet for more than a decade now.

Can this one Happen in NAija?
