The 3 Best Pinball Games You Can Play On Your Tablet [Android]

Pinball has always been difficult to re-create on a computer. Though there have been some good incarnations, the lack of direct interaction is a sore point for pinball on consoles and PCs. Playing with a keyboard just isn’t the same as the real thing. Tablets, however, can put you much closer to the traditional pinball experience.

Make The Windows 8 Start Screen Work For You

So much has been written about the Windows 8 Start screen over the past few months that sometimes it seems as though we’ve heard every viewpoint and seen every tweak. However, it seems that there is a bit more to the controversial Start menu replacement that Microsoft introduced across every version of Windows 8, regardless of the target device. I’m of the opinion that the tile-based Metro/Modern UI is absolutely fine if you’re using a tablet computer.

AudioBus for iOS: The Future Of Music Creation Has Arrived

The iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch are no longer toys when it comes to serious music production.

AudioBus is serious music production technology that acts like an unending set of cables.

Why USB Sticks Are Dangerous & How To Protect Yourself

USB drives are so pervasive in today’s world of technology, but when they first debuted, they revolutionized data exchange. The first USB flash drives had an 8MB capacity, which isn’t much by today’s standards, but a far cry better than the alternatives – the 1.44MB floppy or the CD that required permanent burning. Nowadays we have USB drives that are larger than traditional hard drives.

Make The Most Of Your Android Stylus With These Apps

I have to say that the first time I used a stylus with my Android tablet, I realized that I could never go back to using it with just my finger again.
