Taking Notes

Store & Search An Unlimited Number Of Notes With CintaNotes [Windows]

13th December, 2011

Here at MakeUseOf, we’ve went over a whole slew of note-taking applications. One that we’ve not gone over, and one that I really think is unique and stands apart from the rest, is a little gem I’ve found called CintaNotes. Like Evernote, CintaNotes allows you to take everything you’d like to jot down and store it in one big database. From there, you can search and tag notes accordingly.

We’ve published lots of articles about download managers here at MakeUseOf. FlashGet, Free Download Manager, and Download Accelerator plus are some of the favorites among Windows users. DownThemAll is usually the pick when we’re going for a mass downloader compatible with our favorite browser. One that we’ve yet to feature is JDownloader.

29th November, 2011

Part of becoming a true power user is minimizing the number of long and exhausting reaches you go for between your keyboard and mouse. We’ve shared all sorts of keyboard tricks with you before, but Fingertips is a Windows software that can really shift your stance on productive application launching.

Transformice

Transformice: An Addictive, Casual Game For Your Browser Or Desktop

27th November, 2011

It took nearly two months for a friend to convince me to give Transformice a shot. The game looked too childish, uninteresting, and casual. After finally giving the game a fair chance, I’ve been disappointed that I didn’t listen two months sooner. This is one of the most unique browser games that you’re going to find.

HaxBall

HaxBall is both one of the most simple games I’ve ever played, in regards to gameplay and visuals, and one of the most addictive. I’m not even a big soccer (football, for our Europeans) fan, either. If you have even the slightest interest in sports, team-based gaming, or games that manage to be both casual and competitive in nature then you should give HaxBall a chance.

13th November, 2011

Since its surge in popularity in 2006, Reddit has truly become the epicenter of social news and information.

8th November, 2011

By now, you’re probably aware of the mayhem and mischief that both LulzSec and Anonymous have claimed responsibility for. If not, I’m here to educate you. Both seem to have a feared and revered reputation as defiant hacktivists that accept no compromise.
