MakeUseOf Hangouts: When Geeks Talk Turkey

Last week I invited you to a MakeUseOf Hangout. This past Friday, six loyal readers joined me and contributed to a great conversation around MakeUseOf and technology in general. We received a lot of valuable feedback from this chat. Moreover, participants seemed to really enjoy to talk tech with fellow-minded people, which was also reflected in their comments after the Hangout was finished.

The Gadgets and Games of Kickstarter – May 14th 2013 Edition

Perhaps you haven’t heard, but there is a nifty website called Kickstarter where people can pledge to support projects that they’re interested in. Little things – like Android game consoles, eInk watches, and high-budget video games. Each Kickstarter is its own drama representing the hopes and dreams of at least one person. Will it succeed? Will it fail? Will it become a media sensation?

3 Great Sites To Find League Of Legends Builds & Guides

As an avid League of Legends player for the past year, I’d be a complete liar to say I haven’t learned my fair share about the game purely from copying the strategies of others. That’s fine though, because the League of Legends community seems incredibly generous in sharing their builds and other ideas.

5 Ways To Get Customer Service To Notice You On Social Networks

Your favorite company has dropped the ball, and that $80 subscription you paid for didn’t exactly match its description. Worst of all, its website’s “Contact Us” link is a complete and total lie. All it leads to is a page full of canned answers that can be chosen from a list. Yeah. We’ve all been there. Sometimes, you have to do things another way.

What Is Lifelogging And Why Should You Do It?

Between Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram and more, we already document and share quite a lot about our daily lives, without really thinking about it. They are lifelogs of sorts, but without any sort of structure or consistency to them. While some might not agree, the very act of documenting all of this information makes for a fascinating record of your own life.

5 Daily iPad Crossword Apps To Do While You Wait [iOS]

Crosswords are one of the world’s favorite pastimes. Sudoku has gained a lot of ground these past few years (although the real sudoku craze has largely calmed down) but this old time-waster isn’t going anywhere. It’s one of the big puzzle totems, and it’s here to stay. As with newspapers and magazines, crosswords are going digital. You might miss your coffee-stained, pencil-marked newspaper friends at first, but the iPad is a crossword wonder.
