Gooce+ integrates your Facebook and Twitter feeds into Google+

As much as I’d like to believe otherwise, Google+ hasn’t exactly risen up to overthrow Facebook. In fact, so few of my friends have joined and regularly use it that I barely log on anymore. It’s hard to enjoy a social network when you remove the social aspect. Well, if you’re dedicated to Google+, you might find Gooce+ to be of interest. With Gooce+ you can integrate both your Facebook and Twitter feeds into your Google+ feed. No more logging…

Use these free apps to find your speed on a jailbroken iPhone

Have you ever been riding in a car, or perhaps a train, and wondered just how fast you were going? It’s easy enough to find out while in a car, as you can simply look at the speedometer, or ask the driver. Well, if you want to find out in other situations, you can do so with the use of a jailbroken iPhone and some handy freeware. There are two free apps that you can download to your phone which…

Use this MailMerge script to personalize a batch of emails

Have you ever needed to send out an email to a large group of people? It’s pretty easy to just enter in all of the necessary email addresses and hit “send,” but what if you need to personalize each one of them? If you want to give more of a personal touch to each one, you’ll need to send individual emails and edit things like the name in your salutation. Doing this can eat up a lot of time, however,…

FreeMake Audio Converter packs a lot of features

If you’ve had to work with audio files very often, you know how much of a pain it can be. Sure, it’s a piece of cake if everything is in the right format to start with, but that is rarely the case. You have to try and find software that is going to let you convert what you have into what you need. If this is an issue that you’ve encountered, you might consider giving FreeMake’s Free Audio Converter a…

FreelyWheely is a place to find and give away free items

They say that the best things in life aren’t free, but once in a while you can find some pretty cool stuff that you don’t have to pay for. There’s quite a community of people who like to give away things that they no longer need to people who do. One of the most prominent seems to be Freecycle, however, I’ve not really been a fan. In order to participate, you have to sign into a group, and get updates…

Use IOGraph to make art based on your mouse movements

Art comes in many forms. Some people paint landscapes, some carve into stone, and others just move their mouse. No, I’m not talking about creating a digital masterpiece in Photoshop or some other graphics program. Instead, I’m referring to the use of software to track your mouse movements while you’re working on your computer. Using IOGraph, you can track your mouse’s movements for as long as you like. It produces particularly interesting results when you’re just using a single program…

TalkO’Clock lets a real person call and wake you up in the morning

Getting out of bed in the morning is not always an easy task. I’ve always found it a bit easier when there was someone waking me up, as opposed to a boring alarm going off. Of course, if you live by yourself, it’s not easy to have someone wake you up. That is why TalkO’Clock was created. TalkO’Clock is a free service that will let you set an alarm, and when it goes off, your phone will ring. On the…

10 Reasons Why I’m Done With Windows. (or why Ubuntu Linux is now ready for primetime!)

The wife’s computer crashed last week. A big meaty crash, which is unusual for Windows XP, despite what the haters say. Apart from the execrable Windows Vista product, modern versions of the operating system have been extremely stable. Seriously. But in this case the crash was one of those which results in an endless boot-up loop, lots of blue screen, very little computing. Windows XP wouldn’t reinstall for some reason, so now I had a choice – either plonk down some…

Make stop-motion gifs on your Android device with Gifinator

Have you ever wanted to make your own stop-motion videos?

If you have an Android device, it’s also really easy. All you need to do is download Gifinator. This free app lets you take a set of pictures, and then assembles them together into a gif file.

Google brings weather to your maps

When you’re traveling, it’s good to know what the weather is going to be like at your destination. Finding that out isn’t terribly hard, but Google has found a way to make it even easier. While you’re browsing Google Maps to find your route, you can click on Weather (it’s under Traffic, along with Photos and Terrain). This will bring up icons showing the current conditions and temperatures for a variety of cities in the area. If you’re not content…

Facbook Chat Bully lets you customize Facebook Chat

One of my favorite ways to communicate with someone that’s not in the same room is via IM. Something about phone conversations has always bothered me, and texting is too much of a hassle. I figure that since I’m generally close to a keyboard anyway, why not just open a chat window? Facebook has unfortunately become the IM client of choice for a number of people, so I find myself using it from time to time. I’m not a fan…

FlashCam adds dedicated photo and flashlight buttons to your jailbroken iPhone’s lock screen

When I upgraded to the iPhone 4 I found that the feature I found most useful was the LED flash. Not because it helped with pictures (I rarely use it for that), but because it made for a great flashlight. However, it does take a moment to get the app up for it, since you have to unlock the phone, then flip to the right screen and tap on the icon. I’d rather be able to press a button as…

Parking Auction lets you bid on a good place to park

How often have you been in a hurry to get somewhere, only to arrive and find that there are no good parking spaces? How much would you pay to know that one was going to free up just down the block? I don’t think I would pay very much, but depending on the location, some people may be willing to fork out a good bit of money. That is why Parking Auction was created. This web app is still in…

FastCustomer app waits on hold so you don’t have to

I’m not a fan of talking on the phone, but what I hate even more is being on the phone without talking. Sitting on hold is a terrible waste of time because you’re not getting anything accomplished on the call, and you can’t really do anything else, because you never know when they are going to pick up on the other end. Well now there’s an app for your smartphone that will help eliminate the annoyance of being put on…
