Boycott SOPA – Android app scans barcodes to help identify SOPA supporters

Boycott SOPA is a free Android application which scans barcodes to help you identify manufacturers which are SOPA supporters. The idea is for you to use it when out shopping to make sure you’re not inadvertently supporting this attack on the Internet by spending money on a supporter made product. Yes sure, I know that the legislators claim to have ditched the act, but PIPA is still in the pipeline and there will be other attempts to do this kind of…

Show your opposition to SOPA/PIPA by participating in Internet Blackout on Wednesday

There’s a word that’s been floating around for the last few months that strikes fear into the hearts of internet users everywhere. SOPA. It stands for the Stop Online Piracy Act, and it threatens to disrupt the entire internet as we know it. Essentially, it gives copyright holders the ability to make entire websites disappear from the internet for hosting infringing material. What’s more is that even if the infringing material comes from a user who uploaded it to the…

Tubalr gives you a cleaner interface for watching YouTube music videos [Daily Freeware]

YouTube is one of of the most revolutionary websites to come out of the last decade. It gave us the ability to not only share new video creations of our own, but to watch commercially-produced videos any time we wanted. Of course, it took a long time for the record labels to agree to have their music videos on the site legally (with advertisements and such), but now it’s pretty easy to find most songs that you want. When there’s…

blip.me turns your phone into a walkie-talkie [Daily Freeware]

When I was a kid, my brother and I had a pair of walkie-talkies that we loved. We would always carry them around, regardless of what game we were playing outside, so we could keep in constant contact. These days cell phones have pretty much rendered such devices obsolete (though they do still have their uses, I admit), but if you want to recreate those youthful days, you can do so with a free app for your smartphone.

Would being paid for each visit make you more likely to hit the gym?

If you work a job that requires you to sit at a desk for the better part of your day, getting down to the gym is generally a good idea. Whether you want to tone up or shed a few pounds, you’ll find everything you need to get a proper workout there. So why do so many people (myself included) find it so hard to make it there on a regular basis? Sometimes it seems like no matter what you…

Looking for free music downloads? Try NoiseTrade

There is always a lot of controversy surrounding the downloading of music online. While piracy is an issue that can affect artists, there are plenty of bands that actually want you to download their music for free. Sure, these aren’t generally the ones you find on the radio, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t put out great music. So where do you find all of these tunes? NoiseTrade is a great place to look. If you head to NoiseTrade,…

Free Photo Converter compresses your images quickly and easily [Daily Freeware]

When you’re uploading a picture to your website, or sending it to someone via email, you generally want the file to be as small as possible. After all, the larger it is, the longer it takes to load. What’s interesting is that reducing the size of a picture won’t necessarily reduce the quality. And when I say “reduce the size” I don’t mean that you’re changing the dimensions of an image, but rather how much space it’s taking up on…

Winter Wake Up app rouses you earlier when it has snowed [Daily Freeware]

It never fails. You forget to check the weather, and your alarm goes off in the morning at the same time as always. Then you get up, grab a cup of coffee and look out the window to see it. Snow. Lots and lots of snow. Quickly, you throw on your clothes, pull on your boots, gloves and hat, and grab the shovel, in hopes of getting your driveway cleared before you have to leave. And even if you manage…

Steam for Android gives you the power of Steam on your phone [Daily Freeware]

If you’re a PC gamer, then there’s a very good chance that you’ve used Steam. For those not familiar, Steam is a platform that was designed by Valve to make buying, downloading and playing games as easy as possible. With great sales and plenty of features, there are few reasons not to use it. One of my only complaints is that Valve has yet to release a companion app for any mobile platforms. Thankfully, one company has decided to release…

SLAG-FS is a simple media player designed for TVs

When one decides to throw a party, one of the important things to plan for is music. Depending on your setup, running it through your home theater system can be the best way to do it, since those tend to be the best speakers in most people’s houses. The other nice thing is that you can use the TV to display the music info for your guests to see. If this is something you like to do, then you’ll love…

refDot makes citations simple by pulling them from Amazon

If you’ve ever written a paper for a college course, you’re well aware of the fact that you need to give proper citations at the end, or suffer a loss of many points. While it wouldn’t seem like a ton of work, if you have several books that you’ve referenced, you might start to wish that there was some shortcut for compiling that information. Thanks to a simple Chrome extension, there is.
