How To Use Your PC Like A Game Console

I’m a PC gamer. That’s not to say I don’t own consoles, of course, but my favorite and preferred platform is the PC. Games almost always look better and/or run smoother on a computer than they do on their console counterparts. They’re also less expensive. That’s not to say PC gaming is without issues. Many players don’t like it because it forces the user to sit at a cramped desk rather than lounging on a couch.

The 11 Years Of The iPod [INFOGRAPHIC]

I can fondly remember my first iPod. I was a late entrant to the whole Apple craze, and after years of owning crappy MP3 players that broke down constantly and had bad sound, I decided to take the plunge and buy an iPod. At the time, it was one of those big white chunky ones with the spinning wheel in the middle and to me, this thing was revolutionary. I ended up listening to more music than I had ever listened to in my entire life.

Which Gadgets Are on Your Christmas List? [You Told Us]

It’s Christmas, or near enough. We’re certainly a fair way into the holiday season, with Thanksgiving and the start of the shopping season behind us, and the countdown to the big day well and truly underway (as evidenced by these animated lights displays). You probably should have written up your Christmas list by now, and, if you’re so inclined, posted it off to Santa Claus.

Sumo Paint Is As Close As You Can Get To Photoshop In Your Browser [Chrome]

Photoshop is one insanely powerful program. It has so many features that it is honestly hard to wrap your head around it. Unfortunately, it also comes with a price tag and learning curve that reflect the load of features and options. After all, there are entire classes dedicated to just learning the program, and once you do, you will have to run out and drop hundreds of dollars to have it installed on your own computer.

Is Your New iPhone Paired To Another iTunes Library? Don’t Freak Out Yet

About a week ago I purchased an iPhone 5, and after having two models replaced and performing three restores via iTunes, I thought I was ready to rock. A few days later Algoriddim released their new video mixing app, vjay, and in order to pretend I am one day destined to become a superstar VJ, I decided to transfer some media using iTunes. Much to my surprise, my brand new – and recently restored using my own Mac – iPhone 5 wouldn’t sync without erasing everything first.
