Always Be Connected: What You Need to Get Internet Anywhere

We live in a world where we are accustomed to being connected at all times. It’s almost impossible to go out without wanting to have Internet. Between email, social networks, settling arguments, and chatting with friends, we all feel like the Internet is not optional at this point. I am not here to debate whether being connected at all times is a good or bad thing for society as a whole.

Pocket Planes: A Pixel Perfect Airline Management Sim From The Creators Of Tiny Tower

After spending the last 48 hours passing through various airports, sleeping very little and being crammed into economy airplane seating I don’t think I’ll ever consider a career in commercial aviation. Jet lag aside, there are only so many impatient travellers and take-off procedures I can stomach in one week. I’d rather pretend with the aid of my iPhone and Pocket Planes, another of those oh-so-popular micro-management games.

Better Than The Default: 5 Fantastic Dropbox Apps [Android]

I’m a huge fan of Dropbox. I have been using it extensively for team collaborations, to transfer files between platforms, and for backup purposes. Dropbox’ key to success is its ease of use, which is firmly rooted in its nearly flawless integration across different platforms. The native Dropbox Android app is great for basic access to files and downloading, but it is lacking some features essential for power users.

How To Set Up a Paypal Account To Pay For Anything

I have to admit that Paypal has become my own vehicle of choice for conducting business online. It has become the most common vehicle that clients prefer for sending in payments for work. This makes Paypal the vehicle of choice for running an online business and it has been for a very long time. However, what you may not realize is how much Paypal has grown, and how many new options are now available these days for paying for things with your Paypal account.

What Is TrustedInstaller & Why Does it Keep Me From Renaming Files?

TrustedInstaller is a built-in user account in Windows 8, Windows 7, and Windows Vista. This user account “owns” a variety of system files, including some files in your Program Files folder, your Windows folder, and even the Windows.old folder that is created after you upgrade from one version of Windows to another. To rename or delete these files, you’ll have to take ownership of them away from the TrustedInstaller user account.

5 Unofficial Ways To Watch Twitter Vine Videos

Video sharing is not a new phenomenon, with YouTube having been with us since 2005, amazingly. There are also a host of alternatives to YouTube, but the Google-owned service must be considered the daddy of them all. However, there’s a newcomer on the scene, one which is gaining a lot of attention thanks to both its ease of use and severe limit on the length of videos. I am, of course, talking about Vine, which you may well have heard of already.

Moves For iPhone – Activity Tracking Done Right [iOS]

Moves is a new iPhone app designed to track your activity – running, walking, and cycling – over the course of a full day. It’s free, and requires no additional devices. The only requirement is that it remains running in the background. You can download Moves from the iTunes store. When the app is running (either in the background or foreground), it uses the accelerometer to measure steps taken during walking or running movements, and GPS to track routes.

Enjoy Podcasts, Music, Talk & Sport On Windows Phone With TuneIn Radio

Aware that I should probably listen to the occasional contemporary sound, I became a convert to the BBC’s 6 Music channel, which plays an astounding mix of great tunes from the 1950’s to the 2010’s. Now able to get my fix of good music, it suddenly occurred to be one day when I was heading out that I would be unable to listen to this digital-only radio station in the street – without a suitable mobile app with which to do so.

What Is WEP Wi-Fi Encryption & Why Is It Really Insecure?

If you’ve set up a wireless network before, you’ve probably read or been told to use WPA2 instead of WEP, because WEP is bad. Why is that? And what is WEP anyway? Good questions. WEP was the first standardized way of securing wireless networks. It encrypts your data – which is good – but doesn’t do so well enough to stop people from eavesdropping – which is bad.
