What I MakeUseOf: Greg Wiens, Creative Director At Corel

Tools are awesome – if you read MakeUseOf, you probably agree. But the latest isn’t always the greatest – rather, the greatest is whatever helps you get the job done, saves time, and just plain works. One good way to find those excellent tools is to see what an actual person uses in their daily life to get stuff done. Read on for a detailed review showing how Corel’s Creative Director gets work done.

Not Just For Paranoids: 4 Reasons To Encrypt Your Digital Life

Encryption isn’t only for paranoid conspiracy theorists, nor is it just for tech geeks. Encryption is something every computer user can benefit from. Tech websites write about how you can encrypt your digital life, but we’ve all done a poor job of explaining why you should actually care. Now we’ll get back to basics and explain the many threats encryption can help protect you from.

Don’t Spend Money On An Arduino – Build Your Own For Much Less

I love my Arduinos. At any point, I have quite a few projects on the go – prototyping is just so easy with them. But sometimes, I want to keep the project functional without buying another Arduino. Spending $30 each time for a fairly simple microcontroller than I only need some of the functionality for is just silly. It’s at that point that building an Arduino clone becomes a viable option.

Transform Your Social Output Into Web Page Content With Tint

There is this fascinating service called Tint, and I actually struggle to accurately describe it – that’s how unique it is. Tint is 50% about promoting your social networks, but it’s also 50% about providing website content. It’s both. It should be a paradox that should cause the Universe to implode and create a black hole – but it doesn’t. Somehow, Tint pulls it off and makes it work – it brings social content and web content together in one place.

The Gadgets And Games Of Kickstarter – March 29th 2013 Edition

Perhaps you haven’t heard, but there is this nifty website called Kickstarter where people can pledge to support projects that they’re interested in. Little things – like Android game consoles, eInk watches, and high-budget video games. Each Kickstarter is its own drama representing the hopes and dreams of at least one person. Will it succeed? Will it fail? Will it become a media sensation?

Keep In Touch With The Big Game On Your Android

Just recently, I was doing some research on TV Show Apps to Stay In Touch with Your Favourite Characters, and the last thing I included was an app to track my favourite NHL team, the Edmonton Oilers. That might have been a reach as far as the title of the article goes, but sports is definitely full of characters and a large portion of our television watching time is dedicated to sports.

iPad Therefore I Rock: 8 Best Sub-$10 iOS Music Making Apps

The iPad is often perceived as a fun yet altogether unnecessary gadget, and that leaves many wondering whether they can justify the purchase when their existing equipment will probably do. Despite being a great eBook and magazine reader, a games console and quite possibly a productive accessory too, the iPad really excels when it comes to making music. This might just be the excuse you need to drop next month’s wages on Apple’s flagship device.
