The Health Hazards Of Tablet Use [INFOGRAPHIC]

Program Compatibility Assistant: Why You Might Need It & How To Get Rid Of It [Windows]

Microsoft has a knack for persistence in ensuring that any applications you download on the Windows OS meet their compatibility standards. Some of you may be very thankful for that security measure and others may find it intrusive and completely unnecessary. I’ve personally avoided it in every way possible, but I’m sure there are others out there who are making good use of it.

Adium – The Ultimate Instant Messaging App [Mac]

Start using the best instant messaging client out there for Mac. It’s called Adium, it connects to everything and there’s no reason for not using it. Okay, there’s one reason – Adium does not support Facetime. But if that’s not an issue for you, Adium is a piece of software you should install. Combine all of your conversations into one great interface, then customize that interface to work exactly the way you want it to.

While there’s absolutely nothing wrong with using these fonts, there will most likely be multiple cases where you’ll be required to have certain fonts.
