Who Is Gabe Newell And Why Do Gamers Care?

In every area of technology, we have figureheads. For the desktop, laptop, and now even smartphones, Bill Gates and Steve Jobs should both be names that ring bells. For our internet and social networking, someone like Mark Zuckerburg is viewed as the key example. For many years now, and especially for those of us with personal computers, gaming has been represented very well by a man named Gabe Newell.

SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop: Better Than Red Hat?

SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop: Better Than Red Hat?

Recently, I took a closer look at Red Hat Enterprise Linux, or “RHEL”, to see how good of an enterprise desktop operating system it really is. However, Red Hat isn’t the only company in the Linux enterprise desktop market — there’s also SUSE. SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop, or “SLED” costs $120 for a one-year subscription, and offers different technologies and software to get the job done. But just what can SLED offer, and how is it different to Red Hat’s offering?

So, you’ve spent hours upon hours playing Dota 2. Now, for one reason or another, you are being forced to leave your home to face the scary outside world.

Tempo Is Your Personal Assistant Calendar App for the iPhone

I stopped using the default iOS Calendar app when Fantastical was released last year, but in the world of mobile apps, there’s no end to new approaches for achieving the same results. Recently released “smart calendar” iPhone app Tempo ties your pertinent data from email, calendar, and contacts accounts, as well as Facebook and LinkedIn connections, into one place – saving you the trouble of opening two or more apps to locate related data for scheduled events and appointments. But is it any good?

How to Add USB Storage to the Raspberry Pi

I’ve recently been looking at options for expanding the storage on my Raspberry Pi. Such choices are limited – the USB ports are often used by a keyboard, mouse or retro game controllers, while the SD card slot is naturally limited to just a single device. In terms of expanding storage via USB devices, there are two options. For instance, you might connect your USB hard disk drive or flash drive to one of the USB ports – but if that port is needed for another device, things can get tricky.

Puush: Take Screenshots and Share Them Instantly

Image hosting and image sharing sites are all the rage these days, especially with the widespread explosion in popularity of Internet image macros and memes. Images are pleasing to the eye and people are more likely to view an image than read a block of text – which is why infographics are great. The problem? Storage limits and inconvenient uploads. What if there was a tool that lets you take screenshots, upload them to storage, and share a link – all with one click? That tool exists and it’s called Puush.

How to Browse the Web Anonymously On Your Android Smartphone

When you access a website on your smartphone, your cellular carrier, network operator, and government all know you accessed that website. Tor allows you to browse anonymously and bypass web censorship on your desktop. Orbot brings Tor to Android, so you can do the same from your smartphone. Whether you’re connected to a cellular data connection or Wi-Fi, Orbot works the same. Like the Tor browser bundle for PCs, it connects to the Tor network and allows you to browse the web anonymously.

Save Space On Your Mac By Storing iPhoto & iTunes Libraries Remotely

With my head held low with shame, I publicly admitted last week that I’m a digital hoarder. My once blazingly fast Mac is now left with just 100GB of a 1TB drive left. I’ve already shifted all my downloads onto a NAS, but now I’m left with a legacy of nearly 20,000 photos and MP3s, which together add up to at least 200GB of space. There is a better way to store your media that doesn’t involve using all the space on your local hard drive – using either network storage, or an external drive.
