Experience A Wild West Shootout Up Close And Personal In Smokin Guns [MUO Gaming]

Smokin’ Guns isn’t like the usual military-style shooting games like Call of Duty or Metal of Honor. It also isn’t like the surreal, monster-filled Doom-esque games that fill the gamestore shelves. No – this game is all about a gunfighter and his gun. Just trying to survive in a crazy, wild place where everyone else also has a gun with a bullet that has your name on it.

Slice – The Best iPhone App For Tracking Your Online Purchases & Packages

Keeping track of our expenses and purchases is easier when we shop online and use debit or credit cards, instead of checks and cash. No matter our best intentions, it’s a pain to keep up with receipts and record purchases in a checkbook. Plus, based on my experience, I think we tend to spend our money more wisely when we keep a weekly track of where and how much of our discretionary money goes to non-essential items and services.

Quantro – The Best Tetris Alternative For Android

I can’t remember the last time I wrote an entire MakeUseOf post about a single game. But here I am, dedicating this whole post to tell you about just one game, because it’s that good: Quantro for Android. You won’t find mention of it on the Quantro page, but it’s a Tetris clone. It’s not just a dumb clone, though – it’s even better than the original. They can’t tell you it’s Tetris, supposedly because of copyright issues, so here I am to lay down the truth.

Have Office 2010? Don’t Buy Office 2013, Here’s Why

Windows

Have Office 2010? Don’t Buy Office 2013, Here’s Why

I’m coming to the end of my trial period with Microsoft Office 2013. Over the weeks it has been a reasonably solid experience with one or two quirks causing me no end of frustration. But do I want to upgrade? Do I want to pay for a subscription or full purchase or would I prefer to stick with Microsoft Office 2010, a suite that I’ve been using successfully for several years now? Indeed, should I even think of abandoning Microsoft in favour of an open source alternative?

What Is Onion Routing, Exactly? [MakeUseOf Explains]

Internet privacy. Anonymity was one of the greatest features of the Internet in its youth (or one of its worst features, depending on who you ask). Leaving aside the sorts of problems that spring forth from anonymous interaction, such as the lack of consequences, Internet privacy and anonymity is important for preventing some serious crimes, like identity theft. And so when topics related to Internet privacy pop up, you’ll often hear of “private browsing” and “proxy servers”.

What Are The Best Linux Web Browsers?

Linux desktops offer many of the same web browsers you can use Windows and Mac, with Chrome, Firefox, and Opera all available for Linux. We’ll take a look at the best browsers you can use on a Linux system, including some lesser-known browsers that aren’t available on Windows or Mac. We’ve covered the best browsers for Windows before, and much of comparison holds true on Linux, too.

Banned: What Happens When Facebook Doesn’t Like You [Feature]

When I interviewed Mark S. Zuckerberg, I thought that he was a charming, polite guy. When he talked, he did so with a typically Midwestern drawl. He has raised a large family and has a massively successful bankruptcy law practice in Indianapolis, and is widely regarded as an expert in his field. Searching YouTube with the query ‘Mark Zuckerberg Indiana’ brings up countless media interviews and appearances. He also has no connection to the Facebook founder, other than his name and his Jewish heritage. And yet, this got him banned from Facebook.
