Sometimes, when you really want to make sure people aren’t able to read your data, encrypting it may not be enough. While people won’t have immediate access to encrypted files, they may eventually find a brute force way to decrypt it, or they may force you to share the password and encryption algorithm. For cases […]
Making alarm clocks for mobile operating systems like Android and iOS is some pretty serious business, as I’ve found out. If you don’t believe me, just do a quick search in your respective app store for “alarm clock”, and you’ll quickly notice that you’ll be scrolling for quite a while. Some alarm clocks are the […]
It’s happened often enough — we all go browse through YouTube looking for new and interesting videos. Whether it’s to simply kill some time or to find videos over our hobbies or other interests, we absolutely hate clicking on a video, thinking it’ll be what you expect, only to find out that it’s rather poorly […]
If you’ve ever seen fractals and their near-infinite zoom capabilities, you might as well stare at them all day long because of how interesting they can be. It’d be great to have some fractal viewers in hand so that you can explore their unique worlds whenever you wish. Even better, there are some very good tools out there which are also free, so why waste the opportunity?
Skin cancer has become a quiet epidemic, affecting plenty of people. Prevention and early detection is definitely something everyone should try to achieve for something so serious as skin cancer. Surprisingly, there is now an app, straight from the University of Michigan, which can help you with the early detection process. With UMSkinCheck, you can […]
Websites are wondrous tools which convey all sorts of information and ideas. They have evolved quite a lot in merely 10 to 15 years, and they are now expected to be top-notch and beautifully designed. Of course, there are technologies that help us achieve this – hence the evolution – with CSS being the one mainly responsible for design and other aesthetic aspects of your site.
Keeping all your software up to date under Windows can be pretty stressful. Not only are there likely plenty of applications that need to be tracked, but for anyone who’s steadily used Linux will feel like this is just an unnecessary activity. No matter what you may be thinking, only one thing is for sure […]
Any high school or college student will know just how involved chemistry can be. Protons, neutrons, electrons, electron shells, covalent bonds – the list goes on and on. Therefore, it’s almost a no-brainer to have some sort of reference material at the ready whenever you’re allowed to have it. Interestingly enough, a high school senior […]
As the code to the Linux kernel is open source, anyone can go through it and study it, modify it, patch it, and so on. And because it is also hosted on GitHub, it is quite easy to access. So easy, in fact, that someone has made a search tool which will instantly show results […]
As a heavy Twitter user, you may wish to use your account to retweet anything that you find important or that you want your followers to see. However, going through all those tweets yourself to look for the ones to retweet can be stressful. You probably wish there would be a better way to do […]
We just absolutely love acronyms, don’t we? So much so that we use them literally everywhere to have a shorter way to name something. Whether it’s an official acronym such as USB or something unofficial like FB, there’s simply way too many for us to remember. Additionally, there are a good number of acronyms which have multiple meanings, all depending on the context you’re using them in.
Do you know how customizable Linux really is? Well you should if you’ve even heard of Linux or dabbled in it a bit. If not, try taking a look at a list of over 1,000 different Linux distributions currently available. All of them try to cater to your exact needs and tastes, so a reasonable mind would think that there’d have to be a distribution out there with which you’ll find the perfect companion.
Android phones are very tweakable and customizable, even in their stock form without any “hacks”. But for some of us, we don’t care if they’re customizable right when we get them, but instead we want to unlock their complete power to do everything we want them to.
Let’s face it, trying to start a small talk or conversation is much more difficult when done remotely over a computer rather than if you were able to simply walk up to the person. It would be much easier if you could do the same thing, despite being farther away than a simple walk. With […]
