Avoid These 7 Common Mistakes When Buying A New Computer

I built a new computer a few years ago. I’ve always considered myself above average in the tech field, but looking back, I have a few regrets with the system I built – some of my decisions could’ve been much better.

Three Gorgeous Apps That Give iOS a Run For Its Money [Android]

iOS hasn’t changed very much in appearance for the past few years – but it is beautiful. There’s an innate elegance and smoothness to many iOS apps; something that can’t really be captured in words, but more in the responsiveness of the interface and its functional minimalism. The same, unfortunately, can’t be said for Android – many Android apps are pretty messy, using a hodgepodge of unclear UI conventions and controls.

Sleep No More Keeps Your Mac Awake For A Set Amount Of Time [OSX]

Keep your Mac awake for a set amount of time. Sleep No More is a (Mountain Lion only) Mac app that lives in the Mac’s menu bar, letting you delay the slumber of your Mac by whatever interval you please. Being a Mac app, there’s even a delightfully unnecessary animated timer.

Try Multi Commander As An Advanced File Explorer Alternative

In all honesty, Windows 7 came with a pretty decent file explorer. You’ve got an easy navigation pane on the left, with file and folder listings in the center, and a useful preview pane on the right.
