Play The Simplest Intergalactic Puzzle Game & Bend Your Mind On The Plateau [iOS]

Sometimes, one comes across a game that defies a description. You cannot pin it down. Not for its complexity, but rather for its simplicity. Some call these games as ‘time-wasters’ in an acknowledgement of their capacity to totally absorb us. I look at them as productive tools to keep my brain from not atrophying into dementia. The Plateau fits itself right into this definition.

How Secure Is Facebook, Really? A Roundup Of Breaches & Flaws

Facebook, a website which is less than a decade old, now has over a billion users. Those users share a lot of information about their lives. Where they live, who they associate with, what they like – and more.

That hasn’t stopped anyone from using Facebook, however.

Amahi On Ubuntu: Must-Have Extras For Your Linux Home Server

A few weeks ago I went through the process of setting up a home server using an old computer, a copy of Ubuntu and Amahi, a free home server that comes with its own repository of extras. Loosely referred to as an “app store” by some, once you’ve set up Amahi, it’s easy to add additional services to your server in just a couple of clicks. If you’ve just installed your home server or are looking for Ubuntu-specific additions then this article is for you.
