You can’t go on Facebook without seeing tons of Instagram photos being shared amongst your friends. The use of the Instagram is booming since Facebook purchased the company back in May. At that time, the app had 50 million users.
Buying a new PC or laptop can be exciting, but setting it up for use, and keeping it working smoothly can be quite a pain. There’s the primary concern of installing software to secure your machine and protect it against viruses and Trojans, but at the same time, the pre-loaded software that it came bundled with could end up becoming quite a hassle.
These days, with the heat and the rain, it always makes sense to open up a weather app before you leave home to check out what the temperature will be like. These two new apps are elegant and minimal, easy to use and best of all free.
It’s not uncommon for the ACLU to defend people against the police in court when the ACLU feels the police have stepped over the line. There’ve been a few instances around the country where police arrested citizens who were recording them on mobile phones or video cameras.
Life’s too short to spend it thinking about the stuff you did or didn’t do in the past (or last night), because regretting won’t change anything. What you can do, on the other hand, is learn from your mistakes so you can live a fuller life in the future.
Depending on the programming and the data used behind the apps, weather iPhone apps can be a gamble. I’ve had a couple of them installed and it was always funny to see them give out different forecasts for the next couple of days at the same time.
There must be a better way to take pictures of yourself without having to painstakingly set up the timer and running all the way to join the others who are already posing for the picture. It’s pretty clear who’s in charge of setting up the timer by just looking at the photo: just pick out the guy or girl with the haphazard hair and frazzled expression.
Touchscreens have made it so much easier for us to interact with gadgets. Except if you’re blind, that is. Fortunately, there’s a new app for iOS devices that can guess the right word to produce, even if the user picks all the wrong keys.
Franklin Zhao and Jason Zhou, security researchers for anti-virus firm AVG, were analyzing the contents of a Trojan they found from a Diablo III forum when a chat window popped up on their screen. It was the hacker, who promptly asked the researchers why they were looking at the malware.
This cool little calculator app for the iPhone uses gestures, kind of like how Clear works. It’s definitely an interesting way to use a calculator, one that initially seems a bit counterintuitive, but ultimately it’s supposed to be a bit faster than punching in numbers with your fingers.
There are a lot of weather apps out there that can tell you if it’s going to be generally rainy or sunny today. If they say today’s going to be “cloudy with light rainshowers,” you probably wouldn’t have any idea what time of day the rain clouds will come rolling in.
Mobile devices make it easy to reach out to other people and stay connected. Most times it’s a blessing, but it can also be a curse. Would it help if you were told which messages will make you feel good or bad?
There are emulators for video game consoles and virtual machines for operating systems. Now someone has come up with an “app player” that makes it possible to run iOS programs into other hardware, particularly Windows and – drum roll please – the BlackBerry PlayBook.
One thing that men and women stress about constantly is acne. We live in a pretty shallow society where people are often judged by their looks. The unfortunate thing about acne is that, aside from being painful when it’s at its worse, is that it also leave unsightly marks when it heals.
There have been other throwback GUIs in the past, but this one created by the Amsterdam-based art director Ben Vessey looks pretty cool. You can retrofy your modern Mac OS machine thanks to this set of icons and wallpapers.
