The Rating Scale Breakdown:

  • 0  – 0.5 – Abysmal
  • 1.0 – 1.5 – Terrible
  • 2.0 – 2.5 – Poor
  • 3.0 – 3.5 – Average
  • 4.0 – 4.5 – Great
  • 5.0 – Excellent
  • Undetermined – Too soon to tell or lacking evidence to provide a solid answer
  • Not Tested – Has yet to be requested or there is some limitations to prevent accurate test results
  • N/A – Not Available and or Not Applicable to this program

————————–

A. Cost: $149.95 for Full License or $34.95 for 30-day subscription. The Retail Disc Version Costs Additional $10.00, and then it costs a further $10.00 to ship that disc to the USA and Canada, or $20.00 for the rest of the world.

AA. What Formats Can The Program Open And What Can It Convert To ? – Well, the program can open PDF Files and .TXT Files. It can convert them into .XLSX (Excel), .CSV (Spreadsheet), .DOCX. (Word), .PPTX (PowerPoint), .PUB (Publisher), .ODS (Open Office Spreadsheet), .ODT (Open Office Word Document), .ODP (Open Office PowerPoint), HTML, and Image files in BMP, JPG, JPEG, JPE, JIF, JFIF, JFI, PNG, GIF, TIF, and TIFF.

It can also do batch conversions and convert multiple PDF files at the same time to any format listed above, and it also allows users to convert PDF files to an AutoCAD format, which we didn’t test. On top of that, you can also import other files, such as text files, Word files and more, and then convert them into PDF files.

AAA. Is The Program Worth The Price ? – 3.0Average” – Well, yes and no. If you want the ability to convert PDF text/image documents into a word document, HTML format, PowerPoint, or as simple picture files then you will be a happy chappy with the program itself, but it’s definitely not worth the price point. It needs to be at least half that price.

————————–

B. Installation Able2Extract PDF Converter Professional for Windows – 5.0Excellent“ – Fast, Safe and Simple

BB. Un-installing Able2Extract PDF Converter Professional for Windows – 5.0Excellent“ – Fast, Safe and Simple

C . Stability Of Program – 4.5Great” – It was extremely stable and never locked up or crash on me. Eveyr conversion was very stable and never gave the program or my system any issues.

————————–

1. Ease Of Use – 4.5Great” – Literally, the easiest conversion programs I have ever had the pleasure of using. It’s even easier to use than iSkySoft PDF Converter and Able2Extract 9.0, that we reviewed in recent years. It has the simplest layout, conversion format and options available in a program. Everything is extremely easy to work out, and it becomes very easy to use within a matter of seconds.

1A. Interface – 4.5Great” – Strictly an accessible professional interface layout, with not too many options to confuse and disorientate users. Everything is located on the toolbar at the top of the program or in the menus above them, and shows a very tidy, professional and effective lay out. It also very easy to see, choose and customize conversion options.

1B. Start-Up – 4.5Great” – Starting up the program from a cold start is great, as there is no lag or hanging or waiting, as it loads within 2-3 seconds of clicking the button to start it up.

————————–

2. Quality Of PDF Conversions – 4.5Great” – A very fast PDF converter, depending on what you convert. We performed multiple tests in which we converted three different PDF files into every available conversion format, that we listed above. Each conversion took between 1-3 minutes.

2A. Text/Image PDF File – 4.5Great” – We converted PDF files that consisted of both text and images (screengrabs), which were between 20 and 100 pages long. Every conversion was perfect and displayed every image and piece of text in the correct format and layout, but unfortunately, with the PowerPoint format, the text ran off of the document to the right, meaning that text was lost in the conversion. Meanwhile, the conversions to Excel, Open Office and Publisher all translated over quite well, with just the minor issues, like images and text not looking quite right in terms of size to each other, but that might have been our own personal preferences really.

The other formats were HTML and Image files, such as JPG, PNG, BMP, GIF and TIFF. With the HTML format, it compiled all of the converted images on to separate html files, then it created an html file that you can name yourself, so that you could browse through each slide in a browser like a PowerPoint presentation, and while this option works on Mozilla Firefox, while both online and offline, it only works on Google Chrome when you are online, but doesn’t work in an offline mode.

When if comes to the image formats, All of them open up perfectly in Microsoft Paint and look identical, but in some other programs I use, the TIFF file won’t open (which is my own fault because the program doesn’t accept TIFF files) and in the same program, the BMP image comes out yellow, while it is fine in Paint.

2B. Progress Or Percentage (%) Bar – 4.0Great” – Yes, on all PDF file conversions, the program will provide you with a progress bar, but the problem is that all of the PDF files we used, and while the percentage bar was shown clean and clear, alongside the progress bar, it was small and could be hard to see for those who don’t have perfect vision.

————————–

3. Updating – 0.0 “Abysmal” – Unfortunately, like previous versions of this program, there is no update button at all in this program, only the register program button. This means that when future versions of the program are released, you’ll need to download them all from scratch and re-register it all over again. Hopefully the activation key for this program can be used in the future versions of Able2Extract,

4. Running Other Programs At The Same Time – 4.5Great” – Yes, no matter if your converting PDF file, checking directories, you can still use other programs, but beware that ALL PDF converting programs will take up some of your computers processing power, and the Able2Extract PDF Converter Professional for Windows is no exception.

5. Leaving The Program Running With Little Or No Issue – 4.5Great” – You definitely can, you can leave the program to convert PDF files while you get on with other things on your computer, but all file conversion programs are dependent on your computers CPU power, so running other programs will slow down PDF conversions. The best thing is to just let Able2Extract PDF Converter Professional for Windows use all of your CPU power to convert the files as quickly as possible and go blink your eyes in the meantime, because once you’re done, the conversion will be finished.

————————–

My Overall Score: 53 / 60

88.3 % = A

————————–

My Final Verdict – Able2Extract PDF Converter Professional for Windows is very easy to use once, and is not confusing for first time users. This means the layout and interface is very professional, and doesn’t need to be changed. It basically gives you ability to convert PDF files into Microsoft Office documents, such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint. It also allows PDF files to be converted to HTML files, and images, including PNG, BMP, JPG, GIF and TIFF. The program is safe to use for all users regardless of background knowledge and file converting experience. Able2Extract PDF Converter Professional for Windows may need a new build at some point to add in an update option, which is still lacking in this build, and also wasn’t present in Able2Extract 9, but overall, it’s a very stable, professional and easy to use program, that allows conversions to multiple formats. We’d easily recommend this for text/image documents, as well as purely image or text based files as well.

  • 1.0 – 1.5 – Terrible
  • 2.0 – 2.5 – Poor
  • 3.0 – 3.5 – Average
  • 4.0 – 4.5 – Great
  • 5.0 – Excellent
  • Undetermined – Too soon to tell or lacking evidence to provide a solid answer
  • Not Tested – Has yet to be requested or there is some limitations to prevent accurate test results

————————–

Price$74.99 CAD / For Unlimited Devices

A. Installing AVG4.0 Great” – There is no doubt that AVG has improved in this area. But saying that we had very mixed results with some of our team getting AVG Internet Security installed the first go around. While other team members took 3 or 4 times to install AVG Internet Security 2016.

B. Un-installing AVG – 4.5 Great” – AVG Free Anti-Virus 2015 is a lot cleaner un-installer this time around. Much better compared to previous versions of AVG going back 5 or 6 years.

————————–

C. Stability Of Program5.0 Excellent – The UI (User Interface) seems to have been completely fixed in AVG 2014. Along with the jenkey manual update option.

————————–

D. Has AVG Free Been Compromised By Hackers Or Virus4.0Great” – No reports of AVG being compromised.

E. Speed of Scan5.0 Excellent – Very quick on most computers.

F. Updating – 5.0 Excellent – Automatic and manual updating is great. No more issues here compared to AVG 2014 manual update lag spikes.

G. Does AVG Free Do Automatic Updates By Itself Without Any Issue5.0 Excellent – Yes, you can now with, no doubt. But leave the manual update option alone unless you want to invite stability related issues.

H. Internet Browser Cookie Detection Rate And Removal Test2.0 Poor– You are way better off with something like SUPERAntiSpyware or CCleaner that is more dedicated to removal of Internet cookies. AVG Internet cookie detection rate is terrible even with the option active and checked off.

————————–

1. Anti-Virus Detection Rate Test:

1A. Windows XP – 4.0Great

1B. Windows Vista – 4.0Great

1C. Windows 74.0Great

1D. Windows 8.14.0Great

1E. Windows 104.0Great

————————–

2. Residential Shield Test 4.0Great – I still find SUPERAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware seems to grab the virus way before AVG does.

————————–

Computers Protection

————————–

3A. Anti-Virus Scanner – 4.0Great” – AVG has finally beaten their just average score. And that should tell you a lot.

3B. Anti-Rootkit Scanner4.0Great” – Great option. Works well.

————————–

Web Browsing Protection

————————–

4A. Link Scanner4.5 Great“ – Not a fan. But it can be very useful to some.

4B. Online Shield2.5Poor” – Completely in-effective and worthless.

————————–

Identity Protection

————————–

5A. Identity Protection 2.0Poor” – Completely in-effective and worthless.

————————–

E-mail Protection

————————–

6A. E-mail Scanner3.0Average” – Utterly baseline and average. I found no use for it.

6B. Anti-Spam3.0 Average” – Utterly baseline and average. Not even worth the setup.

————————–

Firewall

————————–

7. Firewall5.0 Excellent – By no means perfect. But way better then your standalone Windows built in Firewall

————————–

Extra Features

————————–

8. File Shredder4.0Great – I found this addition to be very useful. But lacking the multiple layer shredding options that Spybot – Search & Destroy or even Advance System Care 7 has.

9. PC Analyzer (AKA. PC TuneUp) – 0.5Abysmal“- If you don’t mind that this option just reports errors on your computer and does not even allow you to correct said error. Even once as was the case in the past.

Then your probably are like me and you probably feel this options is both somewhat misleading and out right bait to buy this expensive $39.99 CAD/USD add-on. Then you are probably with me on my conclusion. That it should not be there in the first place. Try giving us features that are fully functional and at least somewhat useful like the shredder option.

10. Tech Buddy Support0.0Abysmal” – This is just a cash grab. Completely worthless as well as falsely advertised and overally misleading to the end user.

11. AVG Direct Support0.5Abysmal” – With only a free forum and a phone number to call for support.

You will often find yourself ether being told to go to the free forum or they will recommend you go to further specialized support team via Tech Buddy. Which like I said above is an epic MONEY GRAB. Completely worthless as well as falsely advertised as well as overally misleading.

————————–

My Overall Score: 91/130

70 % = B –

————————–

My Final Verdict – AVG Free Anti-Virus 2016 takes the same approach. That AVG 2015 took with regards to the UI (User-Interface) and streamlined interface.  It is very simple and easy to navigate. Just the way that an anti-virus program should be.

**As per the norm it is highly recommend that you upgrade to the newest version of AVG Internet Security 2016 when available and or prompted.

Why Popularity Contests and CMS Systems Don’t Go Together

March 23, 2017

Why Popularity Contests and CMS Systems Don’t Go Together

Users who are ready to launch their very first website tend to be attracted to the most popular choices of content management systems. Right at the top of the list is WordPress, closely followed by the likes of Joomla!, Drupal, Magento, ModX, and vBulletin. Thanks to algorithms and paid advertising, the rankings are often a bit misleading. When it comes to choosing the right CMS, the process deserves a little more than a simple Google search, as technical abilities and other important factors should also be considered.

The Hack Tracker

When a website owner wishes to monetize their site and perhaps add an e-commerce aspect as well, it’s imperative that they choose a secure CMS. Recent reports rate WordPress as one of the most dangerous CMSs for those who have an e-commerce site. WordPress is followed by Joomla! And Magento. A small percentage also goes to Drupal. This information is both informative and a little disappointing, considering the high number of recommendations for their platforms.

User Experience and Technical Know-How

It’s important to know and understand more than just an overview of different CMS’s and what they can offer. For instance, some of the platforms require users to have a basic to intermediate understanding of coding before attempting the big stuff. If this isn’t the case, that website could sit on the shelf for a very long time or could result in a high price tag as website owners harness the skills of developers to get the job done. Ongoing maintenance could also be an issue as many of these platforms have limitations as to what can be done on the backend.

More than Just a Blog

Website owners who require their sites to be a bit more dynamic and responsive will want to use a CMS platform that responds better to coding. This is for those who wish to have business or enterprise websites, not just merely a blog. For these, users recommend looking into CMS platforms such as Liferay, Typo 3, CMS Made Simple, and Alfresco. These platforms provide far more sophisticated access, however, they do require the user to have more superior skills. Another CMS platform to consider is Movable Type, which is regarded as an advanced version of WordPress. This is the ideal platform for those who wish to create news site content, online publications, and sophisticated blogs.

iPhone 8 Looking to Top the Storage Charts… Again

March 17, 2017

iPhone 8 Looking to Top the Storage Charts… Again

With the highly-anticipated release of the 10th anniversary iPhone upgrade, one of the things users can look forward to is a slightly different design. As the anniversary phone, it’s rumoured to have some terrific app upgrades as well, but for those who have stuck with the iPhone through the worst and the best times, the on-board storage is usually what sets it apart from the rest. There are the picture quality and extensive list of apps that add into the mix as well, but the storage is what brings users back for more.

What the iPhone 7 Plus Left Us With

Apart from a small hissing sound when the A10 Fusion Chip (quad-core!) is in full force, the iPhone 7 Plus is a near-perfect design. It provides users with waterproof, dust proof design but it’s really the 2x optical zoom that sets this phone apart from the rest. The phone packs a 5.5in 1,080 x 1,920 resolution display and also features a slightly longer battery life.

One of the downsides of this phone is the exorbitant price for only a few additional features. There is also the fact that there is no headphone jack, which could send a few previous iPhone fans running to android technology. For those who have the iPhone 6, they may want to wait for the release of the iPhone 8 before they upgrade. This model offers users 32GB, 128GB, and 256GB storage options, which puts the brand right at the top of the food chain.

Even With All That On board Storage….

iPhone users have become accustomed to using iCloud services, however, a recent spate of hacking activities have sent iCloud users looking for the best alternatives. Cloud storage is useful not only for the ability to keep documents and images safe, but it also creates an easy platform for interaction and sharing. Users who wish to utilize the best of on board and online storage should consider their options carefully. Pricing, functionality, syncing, accessibility and security are all essential factors when it comes to choosing the right options.

When this storage starts running out, it might be time to free up some space. Movies, music, clips, and podcasts all take up a substantial amount of room. Backing these up to cloud storage can sometimes result in duplication’s and need to be cleared out from time to time.

What does “Roguelike” mean ?

March 3, 2017

Roguelike –is a subgenre of role-playing video games characterized by a dungeon crawl through procedurally generated game levels, turn-based gameplay, tile-based graphics, and permanent death of the player-character. Most roguelikes are based on a high fantasy narrative, reflecting their influence from tabletop role playing games such as Dungeons & Dragons. Though the roguelikes Beneath Apple Manor and Sword of Fargoal predate it, the 1980 game Rogue is considered the forerunner and the namesake of the genre, with derivative games mirroring Rogue‘s character- or sprite-based graphics. These games were popularized among college students and computer programmers of the 1980s and 1990s, leading to a large number of variants but adhering to these common gameplay elements, often titled the “Berlin Interpretation”. Some of the better-known variants include Hack, NetHack, Ancient Domains of Mystery, Moria, Angband, and Tales of Maj’Eyal. The Japanese series of Mystery Dungeon games by Chunsoft, inspired by Rogue, also fall within the concept of roguelike games.

More recently, with more powerful home computers and gaming systems, new variations of roguelikes incorporating other gameplay genres, thematic elements and graphical styles have become popular, typically retaining the notion of procedural generation and permanent death of the player-character. Indie games like Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space, Spelunky, The Binding of Isaac, FTL: Faster Than Light, and Rogue Legacy helped to establish the use of roguelike elements in other genres. These titles are sometimes labeled as “roguelike-like”, “rogue-lite”, or “procedural death labyrinths” to reflect the variation from titles which mimic the gameplay of traditional roguelikes more faithfully. Other games, like Diablo and UnReal World, key titles in the action role-playing and the survival game genres respectively, took inspiration from roguelikes.
