Why Update Your Blog: WordPress Vulnerabilities You Should Be Aware Of

I have a lot of great things to say about Wordpress. It’s an internationally popular piece of open source software that allows anyone to start their own blog or website. It’s powerful enough to be extensible by seasoned coders, yet simple enough that tech-illiterate people can still benefit from it. We even have a mini-guide for starting your own Wordpress site. However, as with all Internet-related software, there will always be security holes that need patching.

Use These 3 Chrome Extensions To Speed Search Your Bookmarks With A Keystroke

Bookmarks aren’t dead yet. Give me the convenience of setting one up with a single click any day over logging into an online bookmarking service. But yes, the same convenience leads to a lifetime of bad habits. Those little URLs have a nasty habit of piling up. You know that one day, you have to roll up your sleeves and manage your stockpile of bookmarks.

Video Game Collector’s Editions That Actually Held Value [MUO Gaming]

One of the biggest money makers for video game companies is collector’s editions. Generally, companies include a junky art book, a soundtrack, and some form of cheap plastic that no one really wants. The price is jacked up to an obscene level, and profit for the publisher goes through the roof. I even included collectors editions into my list of biggest rip-offs in video game history. However, some collector’s editions have held their value in a big way.

Does Your Media Player Suck? Try A Unique Alternative: Daum PotPlayer [Windows]

Whenever we have written an article about great media players, people were quick to remind us of PotPlayer. Once we checked it out, we had to agree that it was indeed pretty awesome.

Maximize Your Limited Storage Space On iPhone: Here’s How

The iPhone’s lack of expandable storage has always been a sore point. The memory in the device when it’s purchased is all it will ever have. Need more? Buy a new iPhone.

High-speed mobile Internet connections, combined with 3D games and HD video, make even the 64GB model easy to fill.

SlimBoat – A Newer Take On The Browser [Windows & Linux]

Once you’ve tried Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, and Safari, is there anything left? The browser is generally considered to be the most important part of your home PC experience. It’s the vehicle that lets you stroll out into this wonderful Internet that we all know so well. Once you fall in love with a particular browser, it’s very tough to be pulled away from it. I only recently made the transition from Firefox to Chrome, and many would say I’m a good year late on that.

Sometimes, they will even ask for personal information right over the phone. However, you can fight back.
