Superpower Your Facebook Timeline With These Tools

Remember when Timeline wasn’t around? Although it feels like forever, it’s been only a year since Timeline became officially available to all users, and while some were already using it before that date, Timeline is still a new feature in the greater scheme of things.

CrystalDiskMark & CrystalDiskInfo – Valuable Disk Diagnostics For Free [Windows]

There was once a time when I was a naive kid on a desktop who never even considered that I’d have to keep up with the health of my hard drive. Jumping from the world of video games to the Internet, what do you expect?

Three Gorgeous Apps That Give iOS a Run For Its Money [Android]

iOS hasn’t changed very much in appearance for the past few years – but it is beautiful. There’s an innate elegance and smoothness to many iOS apps; something that can’t really be captured in words, but more in the responsiveness of the interface and its functional minimalism. The same, unfortunately, can’t be said for Android – many Android apps are pretty messy, using a hodgepodge of unclear UI conventions and controls.

Try Multi Commander As An Advanced File Explorer Alternative

In all honesty, Windows 7 came with a pretty decent file explorer. You’ve got an easy navigation pane on the left, with file and folder listings in the center, and a useful preview pane on the right. You can completely change how files and folders are displayed, map new drive, quickly create new folders and much more.

Gentoo: A Linux Distribution Where You Compile Your Own Optimized Software

The sheer number of different ways in which Linux can be run is astounding, as there are plenty of choices to go around. While there are plenty of distributions which rely on either the .deb or .rpm package formats, there’s also a handful which use their own formats, if any at all. One of those distributions is very unique compared to most others as the distribution’s developers don’t compile software into binary packages for easy installation.
