Is The Console Dying? [INFOGRAPHIC]

If I take a quick glance at my iPhone or iPad right now, I can see right away that a majority of the apps are games. That’s because as time goes on, more and more high quality games are being brought out for tablets and mobiles. We all know the Angry Birds phenomenon but how about Tetris? Or Diamond Mine? Or a nice soccer game? With addictive games like these, it’s no wonder that my Nintendo Wii games console is dusty and unloved.

6 Free Typing Tutors Online That Teach You How To Touch Type [Chrome]

Believe it or not this is my day job. I get paid to produce content for the Web, writing mostly about technology in all its forms. This means my working day consists of two things – reading and writing. The reading part is easy. I just head online and consume information, some destined to be used for specific articles, more to act as background fodder lurking away in my subconscious to be pulled out when needed. But the writing, well, that’s a little tougher.

How To Install A New PC Cooling Fan

Computers have changed a lot over the last decade, but one thing remains the same – the need for cooling. Efficiency has pushed temperatures down but hasn’t eliminated heat as an issue. That’s particularly true for high-end workstations and gaming PCs. A new cooling fan is often the best way to decrease heat. It also can be a good way to reduce noise. Adding a fan is one of the easier upgrades a user can perform.

What One Tech Innovation Would You Miss in Prison? [You Told Us]

No one actively wants to go to prison, and those of us who are law-abiding citizens do our utmost to stay away from them. However, it’s an interesting exercise to imagine yourself locked up away from the rest of society, and imagine what you’d miss the most. Friends and family would top the list for most people, but after that it comes down to what you derive pleasure from. For many people technology is a source of entertainment.

The US Library Of Congress Undertakes Massive Project To Archive All Tweets [Updates]

There’s a story in each 140 character tweet we send out. Collect 400 million of them each day, and you have the story of a country. The Library of Congress certainly thinks so as it sets about archiving the millions of tweets sent by Americans each day. Though, keeping pace with the 200 million users and half-a-billion tweets per day is an overwhelming task.

What Is Fair Use? A Basic Explanation For Aspiring Creatives [MakeUseOf Explains]

Half of the videos I find on YouTube always have some note in the description about how it’s totally legal for the creator to use songs from their favorite band as background music. Their reasoning tends to always be in the form of two words: fair use. Unfortunately, this is often because of complete ignorance. Other times its just a total disregard for the law.

I Don’t Care Why You Switched Mobile OS, Stop Telling Me About It [Opinion]

First up I just want to say that my house is full of Apple gear, from my toaster which regularly stops my toast burning despite my love of burnt toast, to my doorbell which is an actual recording of Steve Jobs’ dying breath. I’m telling you this because I’m about to make a shock horror statement which follows on from my obvious title about going against the grain and rooting for the underdog.
