Listing to music online has been around for some time, but only in the past little while, has it really become mainstream with so many options to choose from. It really is quite incredible – we have the opportunity to find music like never before, and listen to copious amounts of it! But there are still some gaps to fill. For instance, audio files can be embedded into webpages, but those webpages have no way to listen to all the music.
By now, you may have already heard of ObjectDock – It’s no stranger to those of us keen on Windows customization. It has actually been around for quite some time, so you might even consider it a veteran of sorts. What is ObjectDock? As the name implies, it’s a dock, which is a program that provides quick access to other programs, folders and widgets right on your desktop.
How do you currently proofread what you type on your computer? Type it in Google? Paste it into Word? Or do you use a proofreading website that you paste your text into? I am definitely guilty of copying and pasting (or just typing) a word into Google Search to double check my spelling. But there’s a better way – a tool that integrates into your browser and almost all websites across the Internet.
Let’s face it – Google is awesome. If you’re like me, you use it for everything: emailing, scheduling, file storage, navigation, apps, your browser (Chrome), etc. But there’s one major problem – how do you easily access those apps and services? Google’s solution is a black bar across the screen. I’m not really a big fan of that, plus I can’t customize it. So what’s a better solution? How about one button for all the services?
Are you ready to be introduced to the best New Tab/Start Page since the beginning of Google Chrome? Well you better get ready because it’s coming! Actually, it has already been around for several months now and has built quite a user base of “currently” over 120,000 users. The extension is called Currently and it is a fast loading “theme” for your New Tab page.
Google Chrome has built a huge user base that other competing browsers could only dream about. And although there are still some good alternatives, Chrome still has won many of us over. If you’ve coming here from part one of this series, welcome! If this is the first article you’re reading, you don’t have to read part one first as this one can stand alone by itself. That said, you still should read it as using keyboard shortcuts is a huge asset to Chrome.
Google Chrome for some time has been the browser of choice for many and although the majority of our web browsers can do some pretty impressive things, Chrome has continued to snatch up power users, one after another. I was one. And when we asked you, our readers, why you prefer the browser you use, the answer was clear that Google Chrome reigns among the MakeUseOf readership as well.
It’s one thing to use Evernote, but it’s entirely another thing to master Evernote. If you’re new to Evernote, I don’t want to come across like it’s something complicated – it’s not, in fact, it’s the complete opposite. But there is a lot to Evernote – more than most of its users probably don’t take advantage of. My goal in this article is to help you understand the search tools available in Evernote.
There often isn’t a lot mentioned about the actual organization within notes. Evernote provides the basic tools in its simple text editing interface, but wouldn’t it be nice to create more of a structured environment within Evernote? That is possible, but it’s not the easiest of tasks and is rather cumbersome. There’s an easier way – KustomNote.
LinkedIn is one of the greatest resources we have at our fingertips for finding jobs. And yet it still seems that people often forget to include it in their job searching process. There might be several reasons, but perhaps one of the main ones is that people simply don’t know how to use it. If […]
Remember Everything. That’s the Evernote motto and that’s what it allows you to do best. If you aren’t familiar yet with Evernote, you’re in for a real treat! If you have heard of it, but never really understood what the big hype was about it – my goal is that you will, after this article. Evernote is a cloud-based service that allows you to save anything you want and then easily find it.
Facebook has for a long time been the place where we post our photos online. Why? Because it’s a convenient place where everyone we know can see what we’re up to. But what about an easy way to make sure those photos are safe should anything happen to Facebook or our own profile? Thankfully, there are several tools you can use.
The streaming music all of us listen to is scattered throughout the web, so when you want to listen to that one song that you can’t remember the name of, but saved it somewhere online… it could take a while, and that’s if you saved it. Songdrop, which we covered previously in the MakeUseOf Directory, is your solution to this problem.
A lot of research is involved in choosing the right computer. Should you go with a laptop or desktop? If you decide on a laptop, how do you choose which one? In all of these decisions, I’m sorry to say that you’re not even done if you’ve decided on a laptop and which one to get. In this article we will cover the security measures you should take with your new laptop.
One of the great things about a new computer is that you get to reassess what programs you really need and even try new ones that perhaps you haven’t tried because you already had a comparable alternative. In this article we’ll explore some programs you must have on any computer and the best way to go about acquiring those programs – because there’s a much better way than visiting each individual program’s download page.
