What Is UPnP & Why Is It Dangerous? [MakeUseOf Explains]

Technology in the computer age has been plagued with unsecured features, security loopholes, and general oversights in software architecture. Flash drives can carry keyloggers. Browsers might have open backdoors. Windows constantly updates with security fixes. We have to take the good with the bad and there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight. Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) is one technological advancement that, too, comes with its share of drawbacks.

Transform Microsoft Outlook Into a GTD Organizer With Jello Dashboard

I am always in search of a better email client. Don’t get me wrong, Gmail is great and everything, but there’s just something about a desktop email client that feels so much more powerful and functional. We keep trying to come up with new and innovative ways to make Gmail itself act as a desktop email client, but the truth is that there is nothing more powerful and full of features than true desktop email clients like Thunderbird and Outlook.

Google brings two new search filters to its image search tools, making it almost impossible to not find what you’re looking for.

Not Every Pinner Is A Winner: Making Fun Of Pinterest

Pinterest is, for the uninitiated among you, a social network which revolves around images, with users pinning pictures of anything and everything in vast collections. It’s an intriguing idea which seems to resonate mostly with women, hence Pinterest grew quickly and gained a lot of female users through the course of 2012.

SimCity 2013 – The Tale Of a Terrible Launch & a Terrific Game [MUO Gaming]

SimCity was one of the first PC games I ever played when it was first released in 1989 – I was just 7 at the time. You’ll understand then why this game holds a particularly dear place in my heart, and why the launch of it’s most recent iteration has been somewhat upsetting. What exactly went wrong with the launch, and more important – is the game any good?

Fhotoroom: The Nearest Thing To Instagram For Windows Phone

If taking photos on your Windows Phone is your thing, then you’ll need a good processing app that is capable of offering a variety of tweaks and adjustments. Of course, on a desktop computer such software can set you back, sometimes up to $100 – not the sort of price you would want to spend on mobile phone apps. Thankfully, that sort of price is something you don’t have to worry about.

Take Your Group To The Next Level With Wiggio For Getting Things Done

I dread working and collaborating on a group project in which the team members insist on mainly using physical face-to-face meetings, paper handouts, and countless email exchanges. There are so many online resources that can make team collaboration easier and more productive, especially when a group or committee needs to create and agree upon scheduled meetings, share documents, and make important decisions.

Collusion Watches The Watchers – Find Out Who’s Tracking You Online [Firefox]

Track the sites that are tracking you. Collusion is a free extension for Firefox that records every time you’re tracked online, so you can see who is tracking you and try to work out why. The Mozilla Foundation says the extension is intended to help teach users about online tracking. “Not all tracking is bad,” says Collusion’s site at Mozilla.org “but most tracking happens without users’ consent and without their knowledge”.
