5 Post-Apocalyptic Short Films On YouTube You Have To Watch

As I’ve discussed before, there seems to be a something about fictional post-apocalyptic worlds that draw modern viewers in. Perhaps it’s the notion of a world with limited technology. Maybe it’s the idea of actual danger. These are two things that most of us reading MakeUseOf do not necessarily have to face, and with a post-apocalyptic world, we can view these possibilities at a safe distance.

If there’s one thing that there’s no shortage of on the Internet, it would be things that are weird, unique, and otherwise foreign to our beady little eyes. While I don’t particularly advise spending your money on these sorts of things (because you’ll run out of cash quicker than either of us can imagine), This Is Why I’m Broke is your one-stop website for finding the Internet’s strangest products.

8 Most Useful Keyboard Shortcuts For Beginner Eclipse IDE Users

I recently had two pair assignments for class, each of which had to be with a different classmate. With the object of programming for Java, we utilized Eclipse as our IDE simply because that was what we were taught to use. I tried learning VIM editor keyboard shortcuts, but I have not been using it daily so I was fine with using Eclipse, which seemed to make everything a lot easier.

6 Short Movies Shot With An iPhone [Stuff to Watch]

In addition to being a communication, entertainment and organisational god-send, the iPhone 4 and 4S are fairly capable video recorders. The iPhone Film Festival (IFF), a bi-annual celebration of handheld motion picture goodness, has taken this to the next level. If you’re considering shooting a short film, documentary or music video then you’ve probably already got a long list of equipment you’ll need to invest in.

The Most Fun You’ll Have All Day: Create Animated GIFs From Webcam Images In Seconds

I have a confession to make. I’ve never made an animated GIF in my life until today. Not only did I never make one, I also never found them very appealing, unless the subject matter was amusing (i.e. not a person making faces) and the GIF itself really well made. So imagine my surprise when I stumbled onto PsykoGif, and discovered that making animated GIFs is not only fun, it’s actually a challenge!

How To Identify & Fend Off Twitter Stalkers

Everyone who is on your Twitter followers list is a potential stalker. Twitter, more than Facebook, makes it easier to stalk someone. Are we being too paranoid? Is the social sphere filled with more online fiends than friends? It could be when the ‘friend’ starts suffocating you with tweets beyond normal limits -the classic case of Twitter stalking.

Hard Drive Study Reveals Interesting Facts About Discarded Drives, SSD Popularity [Updates]

A new study from Paragon Software suggests that most people do not properly protect the data found on old hard drives and a smaller number of people fail to backup data to a safe location.

Paragon polled users of the company’s Hard Disk Manager to gain insight into their habits. About half of the respondents reported that they did not wipe data from old hard drives before discarding them or, if they did, only re-formatted the disk. Old drives that are discarded in this manner could become a privacy issue if they are recovered by another person.
