AirType Invented Keyboard-less Keyboard

AirType have created a Bluetooth keyboard that’s missing the keyboard, and they claim it will work anywhere, and even better, it will learn all of your typing habits and will adapt to each individual user. They claim a person can type on any surface whatsoever or they can also type on no surface at all if that’s their preference.
It doesn’t really matter what you use to do it – typing is just about the same on all devices.

The keyboard works using 2 bluetooth bracelets which connect to an app to learn your typing habits.

The bracelets will even clip onto a tablet so you can easily carry them wherever you take your tablet. AirType claims that its text prediction and text correction are state of the art as well, so a user won’t have to spend all their time detecting and retyping words.

At this point in AirType’s development there is no mention of  how much it will ultimately Cost. If it proves to be successful, though, it could provide a welcome change to mobile typing everywhere.

How to Install Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Offline in Windows 8,8.1,8.1 update 1 without Internet Connection?

Whenever you try to open a program requiring .NET Framework 3.5, you get following message:

Follow the following steps below:

1. First you'll need to copy Windows 8 setup files to your hard disk. If you have Windows 8,8.1,8.1 update 1 setup ISO copied in your system, you can mount it by right-click on it and select "Mount" option or you can extract its content using 7-Zip.

If you have Windows 8 setup disc and don't want to copy its content, its ok. Just insert the disc in your CD/DVD drive so that Windows can access its content.

2. Now open Command Prompt as Administrator and then provide following command:

Dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFx3 /All /Source:D:\sources\sxs /LimitAccess

Here "D:" represents the CD/DVD drive letter in your system which contains Windows 8 setup disc. Replace it with the correct drive letter according to your system.

If you extracted Windows 8 setup files in a directory, replace D:\sources\sxs with the correct path.

3. As soon as you execute the above mentioned command, Windows will start installing .NET Framework 3.5 in your system and it'll not require Internet connection.

It'll take a few minutes and you'll get a message that the operation completed successfully.

4. That's it. Now you have installed .NET Framework 3.5 in Windows 8 without using Internet connection.
