Winter Is Coming: Using A Smartphone Or Tablet In Extreme Weather Conditions

From time to time I have to venture outside and this can mean using my phone, tablet or even (in rare cases) a laptop to get work done while in transit. Extremes of weather can wreak havoc on digital hardware, so it pays to be aware of just what you need to do to keep using your smartphone on extremely hot days, heavy rain and freezing cold weather.

Run Your Own Bustling Apartment Building With Tiny Tower [Android & iOS]

One game that I stumbled upon and almost passed by is a vintage-looking game called Tiny Tower. Picture the sort of animation that you probably would have seen on a Nintendo-era game, but with a sort of fast-paced and mind-challenging organizational challenge of any number of Facebook games of today. It is clearly a time management game. It’s like Diner Dash meets Sim Tower, and it is highly addictive.

Matching Movies To Your Mood: Do These Tools Work?

There is something magical about movies. In the space of two hours a whole story is told from beginning to end. With a middle that hopefully leaves you feeling something, anything, for the characters and the situation they found themselves in. Not all movies are created equal, of course, and there are as many bad ones as there are good. Which is where the Web comes in to its own.

An Energy Saving Masterclass For Computer Users

About 10% of an average home’s power use is dedicated to computers. That is the average for the United States, however, and is only an average. Users who are computer enthusiasts may find that their computer accounts for a much larger portion of their power bill. It’s simple logic. The more the computer is used, the more power it draws.Yet not all computers are the same, and they are not all used the same way.

How Many Facebook Friends Do You Have? [You Told Us]

I must admit I’m a little addicted to Facebook. Only a little, and certainly less than I used to be, but the need to log in often throughout the day in order to see what all of my Facebook friends have been up to is still present. I say Facebook friends because the idea of friendship has changed thanks to social networks, whether for better or worse. I’m not alone in being just slightly addicted to Facebook, or of social networks in general.

How To Make Windows Boot Faster Than Ever Before

One… two… three… how many minutes does it take your computer to start up? Hopefully not more than three, but it wouldn’t surprise me if you said it surpassed that time. The thing is, our computers have a lot to do when starting up and I think it’s something we often forget about and take for granted. That said, how can we blame our computers when we’re bogging it down with a bunch of junk?

5 Fullscreen News Apps For Windows 8

Do some reading, Metro-style. A variety of apps from major news sources and beyond give you quick, clutter-free ways to read the news you care about. If there’s one thing Windows 8’s new Metro (sorry, I’m not going to call it “Modern UI”) interface does very well it’s reading. The look is clean and keeps distractions out of the way – at least, once you’ve opened a given app. White space is used liberally and fonts are crisp and easy to read. This was all possible with Windows before, but now it’s the norm.
