Clearview: One Software to Fix Them All

Clearview: One Software to Fix Them All
Ah, software problems. We’ve all experienced them in varying degrees – sometimes it’s just a stupid online video that won’t load, and sometimes the operating system itself gives up. Now imagine a future where programs can still be compromised, or attacked, but will no longer crash or hang.

Toys for Big Boys: iPhone Remote Controls Honda Civic, Blackberry Remote Controls F1 Car

Toys for Big Boys: iPhone Remote Controls Honda Civic, Blackberry Remote Controls F1 Car
Man, these are smartphones indeed. The wise – and probably bored – folks at the University of Berlin made a one-of-a-kind iPhone app which they called iDriver, which allows them to control a Honda Civic via Wi-Fi.

Photosketch Internet Image Montage: This Needs to be Out Now

Photosketch Internet Image Montage: This Needs to be Out Now
Developed by a team of students from Tsinghua University and the National University of Singapore, Photosketch is a more practical version of Scribblenauts. Say you want to have a picture of a shark jumping out of the sea in an attempt to swallow a helicopter.

Proloquo2go: iPhone App Gives Speech Impaired a Voice

Proloquo2go: iPhone App Gives Speech Impaired a Voice
The iPhone app store is loaded up with tens of thousands of apps ranging from video games, to GPS software to fart apps. But here’s an application that can actually change lives. Proloquo2Go is an amazing iPhone and iPod Touch app that helps people with speech impairments communicate wherever they go.

Nintendo Ds, Ds Lite and Dsi Xploder Cheats: God Mode on the Go

Nintendo Ds, Ds Lite and Dsi Xploder Cheats: God Mode on the Go
I love playing video games because they give me quantifiable proof of my progress, unlike in real life where sometimes (cue violins) you just don’t know where you are, what you’re supposed to do and where you’re going (stop music).

Microsoft (Mis)Educates Best Buy Employees About Linux

Microsoft (Mis)Educates Best Buy Employees About Linux
A Best Buy employee recently posted screenshots of what he claims is part of a training program about Windows 7. The screenshots show some Windows vs. Linux comparisons. You probably know where this is going. The employee is overclock.net forum member GodofGrunts, and here are some of the screenshots he posted: Now I have never used any Linux OS, but even if it’s true that there are fewer major software that are compatible with the system, I am pretty damn sure that there at least 2 Linux apps that provide video chat – Skype and Pidgin.

Oops: Upgrading Your Mac’S Os to Snow Leopard Downgrades Your Flash Player

Oops: Upgrading Your Mac’S Os to Snow Leopard Downgrades Your Flash Player
If you’ve upgraded to Apple’s much-hyped and well-received Snow Leopard, I recommend that you update your system’s Adobe Flash player – even if you already had the latest version prior to the installation. That’s because in the process of installing Snow Leopard, your current Flash player will be replaced by version 10.0.23.1.

Rockmelt, a Facebook-Integrated Browser: Wtf or Ftw?

Rockmelt, a Facebook-Integrated Browser: Wtf or Ftw?
Internet Explorer is still the world’s most popular internet browser, but its market share has dropped because of sweet alternatives like Firefox, Chrome, Opera and Safari. And if ReadWriteWeb‘s “reputable sources” are to be believed, a new challenger is about to drop a metaphorical token in the metaphorical arcade machine that’s playing the metaphorical video game of Browser War II.

Yo, Joe! Virus Prevention is Half the Battle

Yo, Joe! Virus Prevention is Half the Battle
This has to be one of the weirdest movie and franchise tie-ins ever: just in time for the live action movie, there’s a G.I. Joe-themed version of Norton Antivirus, complete with its own website. It seems like the kind of thing that would be fanart, or the product of a Photoshop contest, not a real tie-in, and yet there it is, with a website and all.

Openemu Mac Emulator Lets You Play and Play With Retro Video Games

Openemu Mac Emulator Lets You Play and Play With Retro Video Games
There aren’t as many video game apps for the Mac as there are for Windows computers, and even then I have a feeling that there’s no program, Windows or otherwise, that lets you play and play with retro video games the way OpenEmu does.

Morals Software for Robots: Life Imitating Asimov

Morals Software for Robots: Life Imitating Asimov
Asimov concocted the Three Laws of Robotics in 1942 and built many of his stories around these rules. While Asimov benefited greatly from those rules as an artistic concept, giving him ideas to explore, in the future our lives may really depend on robot ethics. 

Torrent2exe Makes Torrenting Almost Idiotproof

Torrent2exe Makes Torrenting Almost Idiotproof
If you can surf the Internet and install software without asking for help, then I’m sure downloading torrents is also a piece of cake for you. But of course there are other aspects of downloading torrents that require more knowledge and tweaking, like bandwidth settings or port forwarding.

Camspace Turns Any Object Into a Controller

Camspace Turns Any Object Into a Controller
Almost a week ago, Kotaku’s Brian Crecente wrote an article regarding the re-emergence of video game peripherals, spurred on by the success of Guitar Hero, Rock Band, and of course the Wii. In the article, Wedbush Morgan Securities analyst Michael Pachter was quoted as saying, “I think the problem with all peripherals is that you have to make them reusable.

Adobe Cs Pillows: Not Photoshopped

Adobe Cs Pillows: Not Photoshopped
Adobe’s simple and stylish icons are just begging for spin-offs, so I wasn’t surprised at all when I saw these Adobe CS stuffed pillows from My Suite Stuff. These are definitely geekier than the ctrl alt del pillows.

Download a Very Early Build of Google’S Chrome Browser for Intel Macs

Download a Very Early Build of Google’S Chrome Browser for Intel Macs
A blogger/developer has compiled a very very early build of Google’s browser, Chrome that runs on a Mac. I tested it myself a couple of days ago and it’s fast alright. It’s so fast that it left most of a browser’s functions at Google’s labs: plug-ins don’t work so it can’t play Flash videos.

What if Software Still Shipped on 3.5-Inch Disks?

What if Software Still Shipped on 3.5-Inch Disks?
Remember the good old 3.5-inch floppy disk? Now remember how annoying it was when you had to install a program that spanned 4 or 5 disks? Well, imagine what life would be like if you had to install today’s bloatware on your computer using floppies.
