How to edit PDFs in Microsoft Word

PC World - Mon, 2018-10-22 03:12

Working with PDFs has become as common as working with Word docs, but to get the full editing capabilities in Adobe Acrobat you must shell out $449 for the desktop Pro 2017 version, or almost $180 per year for a Pro DC subscription. While there are plenty of alternative PDF editors, the simplest solution might be a tool you already use: Microsoft Word 2016.

This week in games: Blizzard dispels Diablo 4 rumors, and Hitman 2 adds Sean Bean to the cast

PC World - Fri, 2018-10-19 18:23

It's the week before Red Dead Redemption 2's release, which means a) there's a launch trailer and b) almost everyone else is avoiding the black hole-style news vacuum.

So this week's news wrap-up is a bit thin. We've got that Red Dead trailer of course, buried at the bottom, plus whatever other snippets I could find: Sean Bean in Hitman 2, the debut of a silly and self-aware stealth game Skin Deep (from the creator of Quadrilateral Cowboy), Blizzard dispels Diablo 4 rumors, and Destiny 2 reworks how it's selling the Forsaken expansion.

This is gaming news for October 15 to 19.

Where to buy the iPhone XR

Mac World - Fri, 2018-10-19 15:41

Gone are the days when the iPhone was only available directly from Apple or AT&T. Today, it’s carried by all major carriers and big retailers, and many of them want to entice you to buy with them by offering special deals. Of course, you can always buy from Apple directly, either in-store or online.

If you haven’t yet put in your order for an iPhone XR, here’s a summary of some of the deals and promotions offered by different retailers to help you make up your mind. For each, we’ll tell you about any current special deals, when you should consider buying there, and when you shouldn’t.

Note that, unlike the iPhone XS or XS Max, you can’t preorder an unlocked SIM-free iPhone XR from Apple (or anyone else) as of October 19. If this model follows the typical pattern, SIM-free unlocked phones will be available a month or two after the initial sale date.

Papago GoSafe S810 dash cam review: It nails video, but lacks battery and integrated GPS

PC World - Fri, 2018-10-19 15:33

The Papago GoSafe S810 camera duo has more “safety” features than you can shake a stick at, including one I’d never even considered—stop sign recognition. Yup. It recognizes stop signs and pops the digital equivalent up on its display. Kind of fun, but as I’m wont to say: If you need this stuff, call a cab or wait for self-driving vehicles.

Admonishment aside, the $170 S810 is more than just fancy features. It takes very, very good day and night video, and the rear camera, unlike some we’ve seen recently, actually captures enough detail to be useful.

Alas, there’s no battery, and the supercapacitor runs the camera only long enough to save a file, not to take a few more seconds of video. If your 12-volt is disrupted in the initial impact of an accident, this means you won’t capture the entire incident.
