What Do You Think Of Facebook’s New Graph Search? [MakeUseOf Poll]

Introduced two weeks ago, Facebook’s new Graph Search has by now reached many user profiles. If you’ve seen a notification about it and enabled it, you’ve noticed that the entire top bar of your Facebook homepage has changed, and now includes the option to search for things like “people who like running and are from my hometown” or “my friends who like John Irving”. What do you think of it?

The Hottest Tech Jobs [INFOGRAPHIC]

When I was little, I wanted to be a trash collector. Then a postman. Then I decide to up the ante and become an astronaut, while most of my classmates were more concerned about becoming soldiers, doctors and professional layabouts. But these days, with advances in computers and technology, kids are more likely to want to go into other careers, jobs that were just pure fantasy when I was at school (I’m really showing my age here aren’t I?).

How To Add Programs To Your Startup On Windows Vista, 7 & 8

It recently came to my attention that there are people who are under the impression that to allow a program to run at startup, you’ll need to either enable it in the included program’s options or preferences or expect it to be shown on your System Configuration page (for those of you using Vista or 7, as it doesn’t exist in 8). That’s just not the case. Anything and everything can be launched on your Windows startup.

Using Wine to Play Games On Linux? Here’s Why You Should Switch To Steam Right Now

In the last couple of months, Steam has been getting a lot of attention. Not necessarily because of the games that it’s been carrying, but because of its expanding support of different operating systems. If you haven’t heard already, Steam has made official plans to support Linux, and has already made substantial progress with their beta Linux client. It really won’t be too long before the Steam client is stable.
