Better Ways To Wake Up: Unique Alarm Clock Apps For Android

Wake up! Isn’t it great when someone shakes you up in the morning and makes absolutely sure you’re up? If you’re a serial snoozer like me, you know all about stretching your alarm from five more minutes to two more hours, only to realize you weren’t really up and thinking straight when all of it happened. Yes, waking up can be a tiresome process, but with smartphones, it can become easier, and even more fun.

NFC Task Launcher: Make Your Phone Smart And Location-Aware [Android]

For me, a big part of a smartphone being “smart” is about automation – my phone should know when to switch Wi-Fi on and off on its own; it should be smart enough to be silent when I want it to be silent, and to ring at other times. Generally, it should just do what I want it to do without me having to remember to fiddle with settings throughout the day. There are a few ways to accomplish that.

Clean & Optimize Your Computer for Better Performance With WinOptimizer

Over the last few years, I’ve tried quite a few applications that promise to clean up and optimize your computer. The thing is, there are a lot of different degrees of “clean” if you really think about it. You’ve got junk in the registry, junk in the hard drive like log files, old install files and Internet history, or even just poorly considered settings for Windows utilities. There are different programs out there that will supposedly clean up your PC, like BleachBit or CCleaner.

Is Office 2013 For You?

I’ve been running the Microsoft Office 2013 trial on my new Windows 8 tablet lately, in order to get a good look at the finished product and decide whether to upgrade from Office 2010. While researching the paid options, however, I noticed that there is a bit of a disparity between the various paid options and the free software offered as part of Microsoft Office Web Apps. In short, there is a good chance that many users could be suckered into purchasing a copy of Microsoft Office 2013

Create a More Organized & Productive Workspace With Q-Dir [Windows]

I have to be completely honest here, I’ve never been completely happy with Windows File Explorer. I think the last time I actually liked the graphical layout of a Windows file system was Windows 3.1. Seriously. What I liked about it was how accessible everything was on a single screen. Everything was in well-organized squares of data, so productivity was better in my opinion.

Sennheiser HD 598 Headphones Review and Giveaway

There are only a few things which can unite people more than music. People who enjoy the same tastes in music tend to get along better, or simply enjoy sharing their favorite bands to each other. In any case, great music is good to have, but you also have to give it justice by playing it through great hardware. Forget about those cheap $10 earbuds, you’ll need to invest in some quality headgear to hear your music the way it was meant to be heard. Therefore, a good start would be listening through some audiophile-quality headphones, such as the $250 Sennheiser HD 598. And, if luck would have it, you may be able to win one at the end of this review!

For Redditors With Style: 3 Great Reddit Tools for Mac OS X

I think it’s not unreasonable to say that Reddit fulfills the true purpose of the Internet – as an addictive time suck that can fill your mind with anything from obscure and probably illegal NSFW to pictures of squirrels eating unusual things (yep, that one I’ll link to). But it’s also fair to say the interface of the Reddit website itself is atrocious. So, here’s a few apps – free and paid, good and bad.
