Winscape – escape from your dreary basement to the beach in an instant with this DIY kit

Virtual window displays for wall mounted high resolution flat screen televisions is nothing new, but the latest tech has sure made them pretty cool all of a sudden. It helps also that the price of really top quality screens has plummeted over the past few years, so where it was once too expensive, it now almost makes sense to get one of these, especially if you’re stuck in a basement with no natural light.

Gentle Mouse – takes away the pain of using your computer

Most of us spend many hours parked in front of a computer screen every week. If you’re one of the fortunate ones who don’t suffer from repetitive motion symptoms (yet) consider yourself very lucky. I’ve been battling carpal tunnel, tennis elbow and a host of other ailments for a couple of years. The worst part for me, the simple task of clicking a mouse, clicking a mouse for more than 10 minutes becomes painful. However, after scouring the Internet for…

Minuum Keyboard – making sloppy typing acceptable

After years and years of advancements, we have super smart computers, phones, and all sorts of other technological goodies floating around. Thankfully, you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to operate these things, but at one point, a basic understand of your native vernacular was crucial. Sadly, it’s not quite the priority anymore as we have a whole new language that is surfacing based on numbers and letters: “g2g” and “lol” for example.

Write The Damn Thing – the procrastination killer that has no mercy

We love writing with a passion, really we do. But even with massive amounts of motivation, some days it’s plain impossible to put anything down. The words just don’t come. The know it alls call this writer’s block, we call it a royal pain in the derriere. Whatever the cause it’s something that can really drive you nuts, made especially worse when you allow yourself to waste time on something else instead of knuckling down.

The Bizarre Reality of My Top 30 ‘Essential’ Android Apps

There are 365 Android apps installed on the Samsung Android smartphone sitting here in front of me…how on earth did that happen? And more to the point, what are they worth to my life? The fact is that most of us carry around an unfeasibly large number of sophisticated computer programs on our modern phones, but can we really say they’re useful or valuable? I recently sat down to evaluate which of my installed apps were important, and came to…

RetroUI – not happy with the new Windows 8 look? Then ditch it…

In the technology business you really know people are upset when developers start producing fixes for your product before it’s even been officially launched.

EULAlyzer is a powerful weapon in the fight against unfair software fine print [Freeware]

Software agreements eh? Who hates ’em? Yeah us too. Who on earth wants to wade through 5 pages of densely worded text to discover what we’re signing up for when we install a program onto our computer? Not us. But the problem is, that’s how they trap us into agreeing to accept nasty stuff like advertising, tracking, data collection, clauses allowing the developers to collect our first born at midnight. That sort of thing. But ta-da, now we have a…
