Should I Put My PC To Sleep Or Leave It On & Save The World?

Most people put their PCs to sleep, hibernate them, or turn them off when they’re not in-use. However, you can also choose to run your PC 24/7, contributing your PC’s processing power to distributed computing projects. With these projects, your PC can help fight cancer, test climate change models, or even search for alien life. However, computers use power when they’re on, and they use more power when their CPUs (or GPUs) are going full-throttle.

Look At That Photograph: 7 Websites Full Of Funny Photos

There are quite a few of us here at MakeUseOf who are very keen on photography. I count myself as one of those people, though I do it purely for fun. I’m not even that good at it, but in an age when smartphones have made everyone capable photographers (as well as making life easier) the quantity of shots taken has somewhat taken over from the quality of shots taken.

Figure Out Website Problems With Chrome Developer Tools Or Firebug

If you’ve been following my jQuery tutorials so far, you may have already run into some code problems and not known how to fix them. When faced with a non-functional bit of code, it’s very difficult to actually pinpoint the offending line of code – and that’s where debugging and developer tools come in. So before continuing with some more complex jQuery code, I thought we’d examine the tools available in the world’s most popular browser – Chrome.

How To Install Apps On a Windows Phone 8 Device

Since their launch in late 2012, Windows Phone 8 handsets have built upon the legacy established with the previous Windows Phone 7, released in 2010. There are many developments and key changes, from enabling better control of the Start screen to the opening up of additional APIs to enable developers to build better apps. One particular difference is in the addition of new apps and games from the Windows Phone store.

Write & Publish Blog Posts With The Stylish New PixelPumper [Mac]

I’ve been a long time user of the Mac text editor, MarsEdit for writing and posting blog posts to WordPress. In fact, I’d fall to my knees in tears if I had to use the online WordPress editor to write posts. While MarsEdit does pretty much everything I need, a new Mac editor called PixelPumper looks like a very stylish alternative that is available for free in the Mac App Store (note – the app is free while the developers of the application are ironing out the bugs).

Technologies Predicted To Redeem Or Destroy Society & What They Teach Us About The Web

The Internet makes censorship impossible and will bring down corrupt regimes around the world. It will lead to an era of absolute transparency, which will inevitably lead to more equality and more justice. Disagree? Try this, then – the Internet means none of us need to know anything, because we can look anything up in a matter of moments. We’re all becoming stupid because the machines do all of our thinking for us. Which of these arguments are correct?

Generate Better Ideas With These Android Mind Mapping Apps

Brainstorming is sometimes a spur-of-the-moment activity. Arguably, the best tool for generating ideas remains the humble pen and paper. Again arguably, the second best tools are mobile phones and tablets. After all who carries paper anymore? And phones are “smart” these days aren’t they. What makes a brainstorming process like mindmapping a perfect fit for the mobile devices of today is that there is very little typing involved.
