Try To Last The Longest Without Getting Electrocuted In Jetpack Joyride [Android & iOS]

Jetpack Joyride is a game from the creators of Fruit Ninja, and is available for Android and iOS devices in which the player attempts to “escape” from a lab and last as long as possible before hitting some sort of obstacle. It’s impossible to literally escape from the lab, as the scoring is based on the distance you’ve gone. There are plenty of customizations which you can add to your in-game character, as well as other items which can become useful during gameplay.

4 Best Linux PDF Viewers – And Adobe Reader Is Just One Of Them [Linux]

When it comes to distributing forms and other information over the Internet, the file type of choice tends to be PDF. This file type is popular because it has decent compression rates, can prevent editing, allows for interesting visual elements, and allows interactivity (especially when it comes to filling out forms on the computer). Thankfully, there are plenty of applications all over the web which can read these files.

Kill Windows Viruses With An Ubuntu Live CD

Today’s anti-virus solutions are pretty reliable, protecting you from most of the common threats out there in the world. With safe browsing habits, there’s a rare chance that you’d ever get infected with malware. However, there’s never a guarantee that you’ll be completely safe if you are simply careful and run your anti-virus software. Especially when it comes to zero-day threats, sometimes things just happen to you that you can’t blame on yourself.

Discover New Music & What It’s Actually Called With Shazam [Android & iOS]

Music is one of the great forces that can bring people from all walks of life together. Most of us love at least one genre of music, and we tend to get along with those who like the same genre(s). Such groups will respect your love for a genre of music if you’re knowledgeable in it, but it’s sad if you can’t even name a song that you want to share with others.

How To Get Mac & Windows Fonts in Ubuntu [Linux]

Whenever you’re happily setting up your new Ubuntu system, one of the things you’ll probably think about the least is getting the correct fonts installed. If you’re a bit confused about why I mentioned fonts, it’s because most distributions (or at least those who’d like to remain legal) only use free, or “libre”, fonts. While there’s absolutely nothing wrong with using these fonts, there will most likely be multiple cases where you’ll be required to have certain fonts.

If the title made you think of Evernote, I don’t blame you. It’s a great tool which is capable of a lot, plus it syncs with whatever devices it can run on. However, Evernote is still a proprietary tool, and some Linux users may not wish to use it simply because of this reason. It’s also possible that they don’t want all of their notes stored on a different server, where they don’t own their data.

Anyone who even remotely enjoys music – and I believe that’s most of us – will absolutely love it when they discover new music that they like. We have a number of highly popular music services which allow us to do just that, including Spotify and Pandora. However, those definitely aren’t the only names in the music discovery business. In fact, some have existed for quite a while, including Slacker Radio.
