Pocket Light Meter Is A Must-Have App For Film Photographers [iPhone]

If you’re always on the lookout for old 35mm cameras to actually use (i.e. you don’t want to just pose with them on Instagram) then you should always test the in-built meter’s accuracy as this can diminish over time. The best way to do this is with a fresh battery and an external light meter. Luckily for iPhone owners, all of these scenarios are catered for in one free app..

Are You Being Unfollowed? Check With These Apps and Plugins

In my opinion, one of the best things Facebook ever did was to let users “unfriend” each other without any notifications. There have been numerous examples where I’ve regretted “friending” someone, and I’ve avoided tons of drama thanks to this unfriend-in-secret feature. Now, there are apps and extensions that will let you monitor when people unfriend or unfollow you on Facebook or Twitter.

Twitonomy – Your One-Stop-Shop for Twitter Analytics, Backup & Useful Information

As MakeUseOf’s Twitter manager, and a somewhat active user on Twitter myself, I’m always on the lookout for good Twitter tools. These include great clients, insightful analytics tools, interesting Web apps, and cool Twitter mashups. But so far, my Twitter finds were pretty segmented. It’s either a client, a tracking tool, a backup tool, or something else. That is, until I found Twitonomy.

Path Of Exile Is A Free & Addictive Alternative To Diablo III [MUO Gaming]

Despite breaking the single-day record for sales of a PC game, at 3.5 million, I feel as if Diablo III has turned out to be a bit of a flop. The game had a rocky start with a release that was riddled with crashes, and a huge base of players have severe gripes about the game’s difficulty and gameplay in general. Luckily for me, Path of Exile has just come out of closed beta and is available for anyone to play.

Use Windows 8 In Style With These Amazing Metro (Modern) Apps

Windows 8 hasn’t quite taken off yet, but this shortcoming certainly isn’t due to a lack of apps. After all, there are several years’ worth of traditional Windows desktop apps to fall back on! As for those optimized for use under the Start screen and the Modern UI, however, there are several that really take advantage of the platform and its new visual style.

PeopleFinders – Can You Really Find Anyone Anywhere?

Back in 2006 through 2008, I spent many months working with a team of researchers trying to track down the origins of a very strange online hoax. These days, the details of the hoax are not so important as are the lessons that the research project taught me. The most important lesson was that you can accomplish a whole lot of amazing things if you just have the right tools at your disposal.

Livescribe Sky Wi-Fi Smartpen Review and Giveaway [Twitter Exclusive]

A few months ago, I took a close look at Livescribe’s Echo Smartpen, and was very impressed. Having liked the Echo Smartpen so much, I couldn’t imagine how it could get any better, so when Livescribe released the Sky Wi-Fi Smartpen I had to check it out. On paper, the Sky Smartpen should be everything the Echo was, but with the added bonus of wireless syncing. What could go wrong?

Will Emailing The Executives Of The Company Who Built Your Computer Really Help?

We live in a very personal world where PC brands try to connect with us on a more intimate level. Sure, it’s just another form of advertising, but with social networking, it’s easier than ever to get in touch with these companies for support, information on new features, and insight on future products. It’s all rather great, but shouldn’t we able to contact the head honchos of these businesses, too?
