8 Things You Didn’t Know About Steam

Steam started out as an annoying program that came with Half-Life 2, but it’s grown into the PC game store of choice for most PC gamers. Although some people aren’t fans and prefer alternative stores, it’s a powerful platform that offers a lot of features. Even if you’re a Steam fan, there’s likely a lot you don’t know about Steam. Steam is constantly gaining new features. We’ll be seeing a Linux-based “Steam Box” challenging the consoles in the living room this year, too.

Beautiful Motion Graphics & Typography Comes To Life On Vimeo [Stuff to Watch]

Tight typography and swish motion graphics can’t be learned overnight; it’s a skill that takes years to master. Sophisticated software and video editing techniques are not the instant talent that many mistakenly believe they are, and so true masters of the art should be celebrated much in the same way animators, artists and filmmakers are. When it comes to this sort of content there’s no question that Vimeo is where it’s at.

Computers are awesome machines for storing data and precious files. However, we should keep in mind that there are security risks associated with the data stored on any computer hard drive — be it Mac or PC. Though files on a Mac can be deleted via the trash can, it does not mean trashed and deleted files are removed from the computer’s directory. This article covers the default method for securely deleting files.

Physics, Puzzles & A Young Boy Come Together To Play In Amazing Alex [Android]

We talked about Rube Goldberg in a game I reviewed a few days back. Amazing Alex takes off from where we left off in Apparatus. Both involve the basics of physics, both are about building objects from the simplest things around us, both have a goal (a basket here to begin with), but Amazing Alex makes it a tad more fun because it’s all through the antics of a young boy and chain reactions with objects that we see around us every day.

Penguin Origins: The History of Linux [Geek History]

There’s virtually no place you can go without being in contact with Linux – it powers everything from regular computers to the most powerful servers to our handheld mobile devices. Most people who aren’t techies like us don’t even know what Linux is, nor do they know that Android runs using Linux. Whether you know it or not, Linux is everywhere, and that presence seems to only be increasing.

Tried And Tested: 3 Gamification Tools That Try To Make Your Life Better

I’m a big fan of gamification, truth be told. I’d even go so far as to say our entire society should be gamified, with pleasures in life reserved as rewards those who actually contribute. Apparently that makes me a communist or something. But I digress; I’ve tried a variety of gamified systems for fitness and generally “getting things done”, and here’s how it worked out.

SoundControl Beta Offers Easy Pandora Control In The Browser [Chrome]

If you’re not yet using Pandora, I don’t think you’re getting the most out of music. Pandora is by far the easiest and the best way to stream music online. Take it to the desktop, on your phone, or in your car. Pandora has helped me stumble across artists I’d have never heard of before and has turned the task of listening to music that I want to hear into something as simple as clicking the play button.

How To Use Your WiiMote As A Controller For Your Android Device

Use your WiiMote as a gamepad for your Android tablet or phone. Touch screens are great for some games, but for others you just need tactile response. So, if you prefer to do your gaming on an Android device I highly recommend the free app WiiMote Controller. It’s easy to set up, and mimics an Android keyboard – so it works with most games.
