Know When to Use Which File Format: PNG vs. JPG, DOC vs. PDF, MP3 vs. FLAC

When the Internet was small and young, file formats were pretty much limited to image types and media file types that the browsers of the time could handle. At the very beginning, text was almost exclusively meant to be presented on the Internet in HTML format, or provided as a file download via FTP protocol. Pictures were JPG or GIF across the board, and sound files were these strangely embedded WAV files and those pathetic electronic MIDI files.

5 Classic Video Games In Need Of Sequels [MUO Gaming]

It’s an unfortunate truth that the best video games aren’t always the ones which make money. Essentially there is little correlation between critical reception and commercial success.

However you feel about torrents of paid software and media, it’s unarguable that they are illegal in most countries. Which is why torrent sites are often harassed by law enforcement. There is one type of site that’s managed to avoid most scorn, however – abandonware. Does this mean abandonware is legal?

Are Video Games Good or Bad For Society? [You Told Us]

Video games are now commonplace, having grown from being the domain of the geekiest kids in the ’70s and ’80s to mainstream fare in the ’90s and ’00s. In the ’10s you can play video games on dedicated consoles, set-top boxes, computers, tablets, smartphones, and many more devices I’ve probably forgotten to list. They’re here, and they’re here to stay, and yet the debate over whether they’re a force for good or evil is still ongoing.

Spraffl: Is Anonymous Local Networking The Way Of The Future?

After writing up a news article about Spraffl, I grew very curious about how it worked. The app is described as one that connects people to an “anonymous social experiment”. I chatted up a few of my peers about the peculiar piece of software, but all of the responses I received were fairly similar – “what’s the point?” Each person I spoke to offered very valid reasons. However, I still see some potential in Spraffl.
