PlayThru CAPTCHA Alternative: Achievement Unlocked: You’re a Human!

PlayThru CAPTCHA Alternative: Achievement Unlocked: You’re a Human!
I don’t sign up for a lot of things – one of the many benefits of being antisocial and reclusive! – but when I do, I hate the CAPTCHA part.

MultiTap Text Brings Back Numeric Keypad, Lets You Text Without Looking Once Again
If there’s one thing that I miss from my old Nokia cellphones, it’s the simple but efficient T9 typing system. I don’t know why Apple insists on packing so many tiny buttons on the iPhone with the QWERTY layout when the numeric keypad works just fine for many of us.

Chrome Multitask Mode: Surf with Two Mice at Once!
If there’s one thing we can count on Google for ever year, it’s a bunch of hilarious, geeky April Fools pranks, and this might be my favorite of 2012. It’s a new capability for Google Chrome called Multitask Mode.

Starry Night Interactive App Hits iPad

Starry Night Interactive App Hits iPad
Remember that gorgeous Interactive Starry Night? It certainly put a high tech spin on one of Van Gogh’s most inspiring works. It’s one of my favorite pieces of art, especially the wind. Initially, I wondered if the guy who made it would release it for other platforms so that more people could enjoy it.

Selfsurfing Lets You Watch a Guy Browse the Web: The Exact Opposite of Private Browsing
Online privacy is a constant issue nowadays, and with good reason. Lots of companies and organizations are raring to gather and analyze the data we produce for profit or knowledge. But Jonas Lund doesn’t seem to care about that.

Email Box Overload: Managing Your Graymail Problem

Email Box Overload: Managing Your Graymail Problem
Spending the vast majority of my professional life online, I receive an inordinate amount of email messages in my inbox every day. Most days, I get at least 200 to 300 messages, so it’s become very difficult to manage all the stuff flowing through my box and make heads or tails of it all.

PopClip for Mac: An iOS Feature That Lion Forgot

PopClip for Mac: An iOS Feature That Lion Forgot
OS X Lion borrowed several features from iOS, like the Home-Screenish Launchpad and the annoying “natural scrolling,” which many of us have disabled. The necessity of any of those new features is debatable, but developer PilotMoon found an iOS trick that still makes sense in a desktop UI: the contextual menu that pops-up when you highlight text.

Privly Wants to Protect Your Content, Anywhere on the Web
Remember how social media accelerated the uprising in Egypt last year? Or how it pushed for action against Libya? It all started with a few Tweets and Facebook statuses that eventually sparked others in the network to speak up and rally against the oppressors.

CityMaps Uses Brand Logos as Landmarks, Doubles as Social Commentary
Google’s Maps service is a wonderful evolution of the ever useful map. But sometimes street names and building numbers are still not enough cues for directions. I’m sure you’ve mentioned a nearby building or store as a landmark when you’re giving or asking for directions, simply because a building is easier to spot than a street sign.
