Cleaners Compared: CCleaner vs. Slimcleaner vs. IObit Advanced SystemCare

Although Windows is a very capable operating system, it is infamous for its deteriorating performance over time. With the help of some clever system cleaners, however, you can drastically increase the life expectancy of your system before you have to resort to a re-installation. I compared three programs based on their interface, features, scan times, and results. An ideal cleaner should have a simple, easy to use interface with effective features, quick scan times and accurate and helpful results.

Are You A Geek Or A Nerd? Find Out For Sure

Can you call yourself a “geek” or a “nerd” just because you feel like it? If you’re wondering if geeks and nerds are the same, they’re not. Geeks may be loosely defined as enthusiasts, obsessed with cool and trendy things. Nerds, on the other hand, are more intellectual and painstakingly focus on acquiring knowledge in a particular topic or field.

Stuff I Found On The Web: Explain XKCD, Lego James Bond, Star Wars Logo and more

With the retiring of MUO Directory, I decided there was a sudden niche for a regular article showcasing stuff I find on the web each week. As part of my job, I visit countless websites, test countless apps and install countless pieces of software. But one thing I have noticed while trawling the Web is this – there is a lot of stuff out there that should be highlighted more. Maybe it isn’t enough for a full post all on its own, but it should still be mentioned somewhere.

More Than Search: 5 Things Google Has Done For The World

Google has come a long way since starting up as a rinky-dink search engine that played second fiddle to what Yahoo! had to offer. If you’re the average person, you’re probably using Google in some way every single day. It may sound dramatic, but Google is a huge part of our lives. It’s good to know that the company isn’t necessarily evil, either.

Play Practically Any Interactive Fiction Game With Spatterlight for Mac

Text-based adventures aren’t exactly top sellers today. They haven’t disappeared, however – a massive online community creates, plays and discusses these games. Unfortunately, when you download a game, it’s not immediately obvious what you’re supposed to do with it. Spatterlight is an attractive app that opens Inform, TADS and almost any other format of interactive fiction – all with the sort of typography the ’80s didn’t offer and that makes it an app that every interactive fiction fan should install.

What You Need To Know About Watching Blu-Ray On Linux

If you’ve been using Linux back since DVDs first came out, you might remember just how long it took before DVDs were somewhat supported. Heck, even now, if you want to play an encrypted DVD, you’ll need to add an extra repository and install a few extra packages just to be able to replay them with barely acceptable quality. Once Blu-Rays came out, it wasn’t a surprise that it was going to be a while before they would also be supported under Linux.

If Superheroes Were Flags

If superheroes were flags, I’d totally live in the Republic of Batman. I’m sure some will agree that designing a flag isn’t an easy task — so when Artist Fabian Gonzalez had to come up with fifty, I’d say it deserves some appreciation. This artwork may be purchased from Society6, and is available as an art print, stretched canvas, t-shirt, hoodie, throw pillow and tote bag.

Make Your Own Free Family Tree Online Using Geni

For those of you who have considered doing your family tree using an online service, you may have noticed that there’s a lot of variance between what is available from each service – and for what price. I did a lot of research into the various offerings and finally decided I would use Geni for many reasons.

Instacast for Mac Is Perfect for Discovering, Managing, and Playing Podcasts

Podcasts are a useful way to keep current on a wide range of topics and interests. The podcast manager and player in iTunes is decent, especially if you’re only subscribing to a handful of podcasts, but more advanced players like Instacast ($19.99) offer greater options for managing, playing, interacting with, and syncing your podcast subscriptions between devices. I included Instacast as part of my top 10 favorite iOS apps for 2011, and when I saw that it was available for the Mac, I didn’t hesitate to download and give it a try.
