3 Fun Tools to Get More Out of Your Webcam

To be honest, I never understood the big fuss over webcams and video chatting. Sure, it’s nice to chat face to face every once in a while, especially when you haven’t seen your significant other or family members for long periods of time, but other than that, I’ve always thought webcams weren’t a justified purchase. Until I learned you can use webcams for more than just chatting.

QuiteRSS – A Clean & Effective Standalone RSS Reader

It’s a shame that Google Reader is being retired soon, but it’s also a good time to realize that there are (and always have been) some incredibly viable alternatives to the service. I’d be lying if I said that I thought Google Reader was not the best web-based RSS reader available, but there are throngs of standalone RSS applications out there for your desktop or laptop. If you’re being forced to look for a new solution to reading your RSS feeds, consider one of these.

This Is Why You Don’t Need Adobe Reader

Adobe Reader isn’t just unnecessary – it has a history of being an application you wouldn’t want on your system. From being extremely heavy and slow to having a long series of security flaws, Adobe Reader has never been a very good application for the average user. Adobe Reader’s speed and security have improved recently, but they haven’t improved enough. You probably don’t need Adobe Reader installed at all.

What You Need To Know About Integrating Google Services With Windows 8

As a fairly new Windows 8 user, I’m still trying to wrap my head around the whole Modern (or Metro) concept. While giving up the Start menu was surprisingly easy, I’m still having a hard time getting used to the new Start screen. It’s not that I don’t use it – I use it exactly the same way I used to use my Start menu – it’s that I don’t really make use of the tiles, the apps, and pretty much all the new things this system has introduced.

Tinuous & Trimto Let You Process Images Faster Than Ever [Windows]

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not a Photoshop wizard or anything even close to impressive when it comes to editing photos. Like everyone should though, I know the basics. I’m proud to say that I can set an image’s transparency, crop, resize, and even convert between image file formats. It’s not much to brag about, but it’s required for the job. But what happens when you’ve got a whole folder full of images that need resized?

Want A Handbrake Killer? SUPER Converts All Videos For Free [Windows]

The short end is that it will convert, merge and record, almost any video or audio file type around.
