Become Better At Finding Stuff With Search Engines: Boolean Search Logic Explained

It only takes Google’s thousands of servers half a second to query approximately 50 billion indexed pages, it takes you significantly longer to scan only the first page of search results.

Why don’t you do your constantly distracted and easily overwhelmed brain a huge favor and learn how to properly construct a search?

Race Against Rising Lava & Collect Diamonds: Call Of Carlos for Windows Phone

It’s unusual for me to find a platform game that I would call fun (see my review of ilomilo for more on this), even more unusual that I should return to it again and again. But that is exactly what has been happening with Call of Carlos, a free Windows Phone game that features a jumping diamond miner, his versatile pickaxe and some fast-rising molten lava! Surely it can’t be the promise of virtual riches as Carlos collects the diamonds, so what is the attraction?

A Perfect Operating System? Getting Windows Style Features In OS X

Bring the best features of Windows to OS X. You did not read that incorrectly. Many Mac users won’t admit it, but there are some pretty nice features in Windows – particularly Windows 7 and later.

One of the most popular and possibly most profitable way to make money off of your investments is to buy and sell stocks.

5 Funny Or Die Web Series Worth Watching

Funny Or Die is a comedy website focused on videos, which means you can add it to the list of worthy YouTube alternatives. The name of the site comes from the very simple idea that something should either be funny or die. If a piece of content isn’t funny then let it pass away, quietly, without a funeral. And you, the viewer, gets to choose its fate.

Minecraft Home Security Tips – Build A Perimeter That No One Could Break Through

The world of Minecraft can be harsh. One moment you’re happily cooking a few pieces of bacon in your oven, then next; BAM! Where’d that creep come from?

Building a door is a good way to keep this from happening, but that only works if you stay underground or in a very tightly constructed fort.

At What Age Should Kids Be Exposed to Technology? [We Ask You]

Seeing kids using cutting-edge technology is certainly a relatively recent development. But I guess it isn’t a surprising one. After all, the technology exists, parents own it and (over)use it, and so kids are likely to want to follow suit prematurely. Should this be something we embrace? Or should kids be encouraged to leave technology alone until they’re old enough to fully embrace it?
