Toastify Adds Global Hotkeys & Notifications To Spotify [Windows]

One thing that has managed to turn me away from Spotify for quite a long time is its limited support in hotkeys and media keys. Spotify works great with a select few Logitech keyboards, but not so much with hundreds of others. For years, I’ve been a loyal user of Winamp Lite because of the awesome support for global hotkeys. Spotify has yet to improve in this area, but luckily enough there are third-party developers who are willing to pick up that slack for them.

Windows 8 Version Of Minesweeper Includes Themes, Adventure Mode

Play a new version of Windows classic Minesweeper, complete with XBox achievements and a brand new adventure mode. Yep, I’m writing an article about Minesweeper. And why shouldn’t I? It’s a game that’s been included by default with Windows since forever, a comforting relic from the 90’s that until recently came with every new PC . No longer though. Windows 8 is the first version not to come with Minesweeper at setup.

How To Use Reddit Like an Old Pro

There are plenty of online communities which can be found on the Internet – Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and YouTube are easily the most popular and recognizable ones. However, there are plenty of other gems online which could potentially impact your life in a substantial way. One of these communities for me has been Reddit. I love Reddit not because of its design or features, but because of the culture that exists there as well as the content which people find and post.

Fotografix: Edit On The Go With This Portable & Lightweight Photo Editor [Windows]

Great software can be hard to come by. That is why there are a select few that stand out and become increasingly popular. What defines “great software”? Typically a program should be practical and useful, lightweight – even portable, feature-packed, and to top it all off, free. Fotografix is all of those and that is why it landed a spot in the Image Editors and Viewers category on our Best Of Portable Apps page.

Learn To Build Your Own Furniture With These Impressive Carpentry & Woodworking Resources

Few things are as satisfying and relaxing as making something new with your own hands. Programming comes close, at least for me (and I’ve recently offered some tips on learning to code), but it’s still quite different. Typing just isn’t the same as clamping planks of wood together, drilling holes and watching something you’ve envisioned (or planned out in SketchUp) come to life. But where’s a good place to start?
