Have Better Social Conversations With Replies And More For Google+ [Chrome]

I will say that Google+ has moved out of the shadows and is a viable social network for a lot of specific purposes. The Google+ experience is growing on me. That’s why I really liked what the Chrome extension called Replies and More for Google+ brought to my social conversations. It is a recommended install from our Best Chrome Extensions page.

AppsFire – The Best App Finding Deals & Paid Apps Free [iOS]

Are you looking for a way to get some great applications on iOS without spending a dime? There are plenty of good applications on the App Store that are already free, but it’s even better when you actually manage to find an application that would normally cost money for free during a promotional period. The problem is, of course, that there are a lot of applications on the App Store going free at arbitrary times.

5 Essential Websites For Planning A Trip To The Beach

A day at the beach is often imagined as the most relaxing vacation possible. But, like any trip, a visit to the beach isn’t always ideal. Coastal areas can have weather conditions dramatically different from those just fifty miles inland and water temperatures may be cold even when the weather is nice. Just a few minutes of planning can ensure that your day (or week) at the beach is beautiful rather than windy, rainy or cold.

Don’t Pay Up – How To Beat Ransomware!

Just imagine if someone showed up on your doorstep and said, “Hey, there’s mice in your house that you didn’t know about. Give us $100 and we’ll get rid of them.” This is the Ransomware Scam in its original form. There actually used to be people that would go around, let pests into your house and then knock on your door and point them out to you. “Good thing we saw them while driving by!” This scam must be making someone some good money because it’s still going on.

Got Drums? Funkbox Emulates 14 Vintage Drum Machines [iOS]

Yesterday I reviewed AudioBus, a system for iOS that allows users to connect compatible music apps together. AudioBus offers a taste of the future when it comes to tactile music creation, but in order to use it you’ll need some compatible apps – apps like Funkbox. Funkbox provides faithful emulation of a series of classic drum machines, many of which have been used countless times.

Make Animated GIFs & Cinemagraphs [Android]

The GIF image format is one of the staples of the Internet, allowing for animations to be shared with other people who aren’t standing in the same room as you. It’s one of the oldest image formats to have become mainstream, but it’s still used regularly even today and creative people are pioneering new uses for GIFs, such as the cinemagraph. A cinemagraph is a GIF that is mostly a still image with one small section being animated.

Cut The Crap, Facebook – Give Me What I Want To Read

Every since its launch, we’ve seen Facebook change. And change. Again, and again, and again. While many changes are actually for the best, there’s one thing these updates never fails to add to our news feed: more clutter.

How To Add MPEG 2 To Your Raspberry Pi Media Centre

Cueing up some videos to enjoy on my Raspberry Pi yesterday, I made a startling discovery – it wouldn’t play MPEG videos! Has this happened to you? Are you running a RaspBMC media centre on your Raspberry Pi computer, or enjoy viewing videos through the desktop? Have you noticed that certain video files cannot be played back? If so, you’re not alone.
