Get Unified Notifications On Your Desktop (Like On Android Or iOS)

I don’t know about you, but I’m getting increasingly used to being notified instantly about anything that happens. A new text message? I get a pop up and a sound. A new email or Facebook update? I get a red badge. A new update is available? I get an icon in my phone’s notification center. No matter how small the change is, I’m notified about it one way or the other. Unless, of course, this happens on my computer.

Facebook Search Used As An Interpersonal Weapon: What To Watch For [Weekly Facebook Tips]

Facebook has always been an easy way to accidentally expose yourself to unwanted privacy breaches, however with the new Facebook Graph Search it’s even easier to get stung. You might think you’ve locked down your account very well, only to find that things that you’d forgotten all about are now embarrassing you. It doesn’t even matter if you have enemies or not – all it takes is for someone to come up with the right search term.

Why Update Your Blog: WordPress Vulnerabilities You Should Be Aware Of

I have a lot of great things to say about Wordpress. It’s an internationally popular piece of open source software that allows anyone to start their own blog or website. It’s powerful enough to be extensible by seasoned coders, yet simple enough that tech-illiterate people can still benefit from it. We even have a mini-guide for starting your own Wordpress site. However, as with all Internet-related software, there will always be security holes that need patching.

Use These 3 Chrome Extensions To Speed Search Your Bookmarks With A Keystroke

Bookmarks aren’t dead yet. Give me the convenience of setting one up with a single click any day over logging into an online bookmarking service. But yes, the same convenience leads to a lifetime of bad habits. Those little URLs have a nasty habit of piling up. You know that one day, you have to roll up your sleeves and manage your stockpile of bookmarks.

Video Game Collector’s Editions That Actually Held Value [MUO Gaming]

One of the biggest money makers for video game companies is collector’s editions. Generally, companies include a junky art book, a soundtrack, and some form of cheap plastic that no one really wants. The price is jacked up to an obscene level, and profit for the publisher goes through the roof. I even included collectors editions into my list of biggest rip-offs in video game history. However, some collector’s editions have held their value in a big way.

Does Your Media Player Suck? Try A Unique Alternative: Daum PotPlayer [Windows]

Whenever we have written an article about great media players, people were quick to remind us of PotPlayer. Once we checked it out, we had to agree that it was indeed pretty awesome. So the tool silently made it to our famous list of Best Windows Software and finally the time has come for a proper review. PotPlayer was developed by Daum and is based on the original KMPlayer, which has since been developed by another group. Much like VLC Media Player.

Maximize Your Limited Storage Space On iPhone: Here’s How

The iPhone’s lack of expandable storage has always been a sore point. The memory in the device when it’s purchased is all it will ever have. Need more? Buy a new iPhone. Apple has increased the storage available throughout the years, but that’s a losing battle. High-speed mobile Internet connections, combined with 3D games and HD video, make even the 64GB model easy to fill.
