7 Apps That You Can Use To Help Facebook Invade Your Life

15th May, 2012

I’m having a bit of a rough and uncomfortable week on Facebook. Are you one of those people who are lazy when it comes to signup forms, figuring “hey, I might as well connect to Facebook and let them aggregate all of my information”? Me too! I’ve never really valued the privacy of my personal information, I don’t have much to hide and a stalker or two might add a little spice to my life.

Svpply

Svpply: Window Shop With Ease On The Tumblr Of Fashion

13th May, 2012

I jumped on Svpply about a week ago, and every day since then I’ve spent about an hour on this website. Picture blogging has really taken off online. Websites like Tumblr and Pinterest are huge, especially for those of us in our late teens and early 20s. Svpply takes reblogging elements of Tumblr, mixes them with the feed of Facebook, and keeps relevant backlinks intact the way Pinterest would, all in one stylish experience.

Cloud Storage

5 Things That You Should Be Using Your Cloud Storage For

11th May, 2012

Cloud storage services are great in that they offer a nice chunk of free storage that anyone should be able to put to use. With the cloud’s rising popularity and on-the-go computing as popular as ever in 2012, it’s time for you to get on the ball. But what exactly should you be using Dropbox, Google Drive, or another alternative for? Let me help you figure that.

Steam

Buy, Trade & Giveaway Steam Games With This Awesome Network Of Sites

8th May, 2012

Steam! You either love it for being one of the largest and most successful gaming communities online, or you absolutely hate it because you’re completely against all that hoopla over digital rights. With that in mind, allow me to introduce you to a network of three websites that will make your Steam experience even steamier.

Mail

Use Your Email Like It’s Instapaper With toread & CC:to me

6th May, 2012

Instapaper and Read It Later aren’t for everyone. A lot of us are more simple. Our email is the headquarters where we get everything done. With that, I’d like to use this article to introduce you to the powers of toread and CC:to me, the best in-email alternatives to IP and RIL.

NES

Emulating & Playing Classic NES Games On Your Computer With Nestopia

4th May, 2012

Oh, the NES. As an ’89 baby, there wasn’t a larger part of my childhood than this gaming console. Before school, after school, and on weekends you would find me attached to this thing. With Crystalis, Metroid, Metal Gear, Final Fantasy, Mega Man 1-6, Castlevania, Dragon Warrior, River City Ransom, Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!!, Contra, The Legend of Zelda, and the entire Mario Bros. series, what is there not to love?

Comics

Download & Read Classic Comic Books Using Comic Books Archive & ComicRack

1st May, 2012

As a kid, I burned through a lot of hobbies and phases. There was the NES, pogs, trading cards, and I was huge on comic books. I still have them all, stored away in plastic cases and as (probably) worthless as ever. Nonetheless, these are pieces of nostalgia that I don’t want to let go. Knowing that a lot of my favorite comic books exist online forever would make letting go a lot easier, though.

WhatPulse

Monitor Usage Of Your Peripherals Competitively With WhatPulse

22nd April, 2012

In my 13 years of internet experience, I can’t even imagine how many keys I’ve pounded or how many times I’ve clicked that poor mouse. Using WhatPulse now, it’s not something I have to imagine. I can know exactly how much usage I’ve put on those peripherals. But why would I want to?

ScreenSnapr

Take & Share Screenshots At Lightning Speed With ScreenSnapr [Windows]

20th April, 2012

The old process of saving and sharing a screenshot was a tedious and annoying one. Typically, it’d involve pressing the Print Screen key, opening up an image editor such as Paint, saving the screenshot, and then heading over to a service like Tinypic or Imgur to upload and be able to share that screenshot with others. When I discovered ScreenSnapr, it’s sort of like the clouds opened up in the sky.
