QuiteRSS – A Clean & Effective Standalone RSS Reader

It’s a shame that Google Reader is being retired soon, but it’s also a good time to realize that there are (and always have been) some incredibly viable alternatives to the service. I’d be lying if I said that I thought Google Reader was not the best web-based RSS reader available, but there are throngs of standalone RSS applications out there for your desktop or laptop. If you’re being forced to look for a new solution to reading your RSS feeds, consider one of these.

Don’t Let Them Scan You: Blocking RFID Chips

Every convenience in life comes at a cost. That’s why things are so expensive at the corner store compared to the grocery store. They aren’t selling you a carton of milk, they’re selling you a way out of a mistake in not remembering to pick up your milk early at the supermarket. That kind of convenience has a readily tangible cost – more money out of your wallet. The convenience cost of other things, such as technology, might not be so readily apparent.

How Facebook Is Turning You Into Someone Your Friends Ignore

Every company has its secret sauce, and Facebook is no different. The social network utilizes a special sharing algorithm called “EdgeRank” which decides what your friends see whenever you interact with the pages of companies and brands. How does the algorithm work? The magic is a bit vague, but you’ve probably seen the evidence of its existence.

How To Create a Successful Curated Blog

Content curation is, in a nutshell, picking and choosing content from around the Web, and sharing it with your followers. Running a curated blog is not just about finding interesting content to share. It requires selectivity, context, and relevance. It’s very easy to flood your readers with a lot of content. Instead, you should pick and choose the very best content you can find, and always let people know why you think it’s worth sharing.

This Is Why You Don’t Need Adobe Reader

Adobe Reader isn’t just unnecessary – it has a history of being an application you wouldn’t want on your system. From being extremely heavy and slow to having a long series of security flaws, Adobe Reader has never been a very good application for the average user. Adobe Reader’s speed and security have improved recently, but they haven’t improved enough. You probably don’t need Adobe Reader installed at all.

Have you ever been watching something on the TV or the computer, had to step out for a bit, but “a bit” soon turns into minutes, hours, maybe even days? You return to your screen only to see an image burned into the display and, no matter what you do, it just won’t go away. Sadly, it’s happened to me on a few occasions. Why do images get burned into displays? Why can’t manufacturers just prevent LCDs and plasmas from doing that?
