Why You Need To Backup Now And 6 Reasons Why You Haven’t Done So Already

How else can I say this? Actually, there is no other way more straightforward than this: you need to backup now. The risks involved with not doing so are simply not worth it. There’s no really no reason to not be backing up your computer. That said, you likely feel you do have a legitimate reason. And in some cases you might, but there is always a way.

Think Shazam Only Identifies Music? Think Again [iPhone]

More often that not, the creator of an app is content to sit back and enjoy the success and not evolve. That’s fine in some situations, but it’s really fantastic when an app creator is willing to keep moving forward. This extra effort makes for an app that even years after its release, is still worth talking about. Shazam certainly fits the description of an app that was not content with its original functionality.

How to Share Photos Using the Updated Photo Stream in iOS 6

Last May, I wrote about Apple’s iOS photo sharing feature, Photo Stream, which automatically syncs photos to a users’ iCloud account where they can be accessed in one or more of a user’s iOS device (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch) or Mac computer. Since that time Apple has added a few important features and enhancements to Photo Stream that might go unnoticed by new Apple customers.

Ovo Is A Fantastically Minimalistic One-Finger Timer For Android With Voice Recognition

It’s a timer. That’s all it does. It counts time backwards, and lets you know when time is up. It doesn’t have multiple timers, timer presets, notification templates, or vibration patterns. It also can’t pull in a music stream off the Internet and play it when the time is up. It’s just a timer – and often, that’s exactly what I need.

Setting Up Your Raspberry Pi For Headless Use With SSH

The Raspberry Pi can accept SSH commands when connected to a local network (either by Ethernet or Wi-Fi), enabling you to easily set it up. The benefits of SSH go beyond upsetting the daily screening of The Simpsons or the latest celebrity news – using your Raspberry Pi without a dedicated display (also known as “headless”) can allow you to leave the device set up in a particular configuration without the worry about anyone disrupting things.
