Professionally Choreographed Orchestral Fountain gives you a light show at home

There was a theme park I used to go to when I was little, and at the end of the day, a gigantic fountain near the exit of the park would light up, play music, and spout water this way and that in time with the music. Families would stay huddled together watching the water dance around in a mesmerizing way until it came to the grand finale and quieted down. This was and is a big ordeal to watch…

Bounce for Android means you’ll never be late again [Daily Freeware]

There are two types of people in this world. Those that worry about being late to an appointment, and those that don’t. I’ve always been one of the worriers, to the extent of being paranoid. That guy hovering outside the door an hour early for your party? Yeah, that’s me. The dude hanging around at the airport for 2 hours (‘in case security was really bad’), yep me again.

Follow Up: 10 Reasons Why I’m Done With Windows…6 Months Later (the news is not good for Microsoft)

Six months ago I published a provocatively titled post called 10 Reasons Why I’m Done With Windows which outlined how and why I converted my wife’s ancient laptop to Ubuntu Linux from Windows XP, when the latter crashed spectacularly. The piece attracted a LOT of comments from both Linux fans and detractors, ranging from ‘Your post reads like any Linux Fanboy rubbish. ‘ to ‘I had the exact same experience, and all my family members (wife and kids) use Linux without…

The Mobile Device Station keeps your iPhone from getting stepped on

Plugging in your phone is an everyday occurrence, although where you plug it in changes as you move about the house. Sometimes it’s on your bedside table or desk, and other times it sits on the ground with its cord all tangled around it. Normally it is close to the nearest empty outlet you can find. It’s not that you don’t have a lot of outlets, it’s just that you have too many electronic devices sitting around that are always…

Security Kiss lets you browse the web anonymously, easily and for free [Daily Freeware]

There are times when it’s useful to pretend you come from another country when you’re online. Like you’re trying to watch a clip of a Jon Stewart show from outside the USA, or you’re trying to catch up on a BBC show from New York. There can be even more pressing reasons, such as avoiding arrest for surfing to a ‘freedom’ site if you live under a repressive regime in a developing country.

PubMyCal lets you email your Google Calendar events with one click

If you’re a Google Calendar user, you’ll know that while it’s great for sharing calendars privately and publicly, it’s a real problem publishing them to an email audience, especially in a decent format. Not only that but it’s impossible to select particular parts and email them to people, you either have to make the whole agenda public or nothing. Well now there’s a better way.

Tentsile Tents Keep You From The Creepy Crawlies

Camping is an extremely enjoyable outdoor activity. The only problem being that you have to sleep amongst the ants, and hope that bears don’t decide to come nudging their noses into your tent. Normally you would just hang your food from a tree so forest creatures can’t get a hold of it, but why not just suspend yourself along with it?

The Action Trackchair is the ultimate off-road wheelchair

If you are, or know someone who is disabled and has to be in a wheelchair, you know that life can oftentimes be difficult. Moving on paved areas is easy of course, as your wheels and their tread will have no problem rolling along. If you should want to venture out onto the vast scape of dirt, snow, sand, clay, etc. that is beyond the concrete path, things may become a little bit more complicated.
