Before The Windows Store – Package Managers & Software Repositories [Windows]

App stores are everywhere these days. Whether you’re using iOS or Android, you can get all your apps from a single location and have them automatically update in a consistent way. If you’re using Mac OS X, you can use the Mac App Store to get your software. Linux users use package managers with large software repositories to easily install all the software they need. There’s just one platform that seems untouched by time: the Windows desktop.

Teach Yourself Amazing Magic Secrets With These Sites

When I was a young child I loved watching magic being performed on television. It didn’t matter what kind of tricks they were, or who was doing them, just that something mysterious, unexplainable, and, well, magic, was on display. I loved it then for one simple reason: I believed magic was real, and that magicians had special powers. Then I grew up and realized they didn’t. In fact, I discovered that magic was made up of illusions, of sleight of hands, of misdirection.

Recycle Old Computer Motherboards As Placemats, Jewellery, Notebook Covers & More

How do you dispose of your old computer hardware? Some people take their old PCs to the local landfill; others wipe the devices and donate them to schools or relatives. I prefer to make as much use as possible from the components. Some can easily be reused, such as optical drives, switches, USB devices, and slot cards. Power packs can also be repurposed after a clean, while fans and heatsinks can often find their way into other computers.

Clean Up Your Facebook Account Before You Go Looking For Work

By now we’re all aware that it’s important to be professional online, that employers have the ability to do background checks based through our social media accounts. And also that many people, though they know what they should do, nevertheless they don’t care or pay attention to the risks that social media poses.

3D TVs: What They Are, How They Work, & What Can They Show In 3D? [MakeUseOf Explains]

If you’re in the market for a new TV, chances are it’s going to be 3D – not because you particularly want one that can do 3D, but simply becuase 3DTVs typically have better displays than their plain HDTV equivalent. Today I’d like to explain about the different types of 3DTV as well as touch on some confusion that surrounds them.

The Rise Of e-Reading [INFOGRAPHIC]

I have a nice paper book collection in my office of 800 titles (and counting), but part of me wonders if, in 50 years or so, that library will be a rare endangered collection. With the rise of eBooks, Kindles and Nooks, there is the possibility that we could all be reading digitally at some point in the future, and the paper book could go the way of the dodo and the dinosaurs.
