If You’re Not Using Siri By Now, You Should Be

Most of the commercials, jokes, and media hype about Apple’s iOS voice assistant, Siri, have subsided, but I still run into iPhone users who don’t take advantage of this powerful feature. Just the other day I had to actually try to convince my 15 year-old daughter about how she could set a reminder on her iPhone, by simply raising her iPhone to her ear, and telling Siri to remind her to read chapter 12 of her philosophy textbook, on Thursday night.

TextWrangler Just Might Be The Best Free Text Editor [Mac]

Use an advanced text editor on your Mac, free of charge. TextWrangler comes complete with code highlighting for most major languages and a whole lot more – and it’s free. If you even occasionally edit any kind of code – even just HTML – this is worth having around. This is not a word processor – it offers no styling options whatsoever. This is a text editor, meaning it handles only plain text .

10 Uses Of Google Translate To Cross The Great Language Divide

Language is such a cultural totem that its translation doesn’t cover all the corners. When we talk of machine translation, the name without surprises that comes to mind is of Google Translate. Perhaps, most of us don’t use the service so much because our comfort zone is English. But let’s realize that Google Translate can be put to many other interesting uses other than turning a love to an amour.

Does the Internet Need Rules & Regulations? [You Told Us]

A recent article detailing 5 commandments that govern the Internet prompted a rather serious realization to emerge in my rapidly aging gray matter. While these commandments are all jokey in nature – being adages created by people more intelligent than you or I – perhaps the Internet needs a real set of rules and regulations to turn it from the Wild West into a civilized place to hang out. For last week’s We Ask You column, the MakeUseOf readership explored this subject matter.

8 Tips For Using Your Smartphone At A Music Festival

I have a friend who goes to multiple music festivals every summer, and he actually opts to leave his phone at home. He believes that it’s a different world once you’re inside the gates – that you should leave everything about “real life” on the outside. I commend him for that. Sometimes it’s just nice to escape. However, it’s obvious that there are quite a few benefits to bringing your mobile device into the festival.
