Enjoy Beautiful Photos Wherever You Are With The Official 500px App [Android]

We’ve written about photo-sharing website 500px before. This is an online community of photo enthusiasts and professional photographers, with impressive amounts of beautiful works showcased from all over the world. Browsing 500px on the go has been possible for some time, thanks to unofficial Android apps such as 500px Land. But now, 500px have an official Android app

How To Enable Windows 7 Aero Effects Inside VirtualBox

Up until recently, VirtualBox had a pretty major limitation: There was no way to use Windows Aero effects when running Windows Vista or Windows 7 inside VirtualBox. If you are testing software, this makes a big difference: You are not getting the Aero experience most Windows users would get, and your screenshots look wrong. Fortunately, with the advent of VirtualBox 4.1, this can be fixed.

Learn A Better Keyboard Layout & Take It Everywhere With You Using Portable Keyboard Layout

As some of you guys may know, I have been using an alternative keyboard layout for years. It is called Colemak, and it is brilliant. But using such a layout puts me in an awkward position when I need to work on someone else’s computer. I can type on a conventional QWERTY keyboard, but not nearly as fast. Also, having to constantly switch back and forth between your layout and QWERTY could really slow you down. The solution?

Spinto – A Website Creator Both Newbies & Developers Can Like

Ah, the joy of creating a new website! Seriously, one of the greatest things about the web is how easy it is to start something new. There are numerous tools letting users easily create their own websites, such as Sidengo and Wix (which, incidentally, no longer requires Flash). Many of these tools are aimed at new users creating their first websites. Spinto is a new service that tries a different angle.

Free Font Friday: Hidden Gems, Monospaced Fonts & a Gorgeous Font Video

Spring is upon us, and today I bring you a diverse selection of five free fonts, each with its own angle and story. We’ve got one for the coders, and one classic open-source font that you probably already have (but need to use more!), a classy-looking serif, a playful retro piece, and last but certainly not least, a font with an amazing animation video showcasing it.

Take Your Fonts Out On a Date To See If They Match With Type Connection

Whether or not you take an active interest in typography, I’m sure you’ve seen something like this before. A document whose writer (or, worse still, its designer) tried to be overly creative, and did some horrible font matching. I don’t just mean “used Comic Sans MS” (the perennial “awful font” everybody loves to hate), but even if the writer or designer used “sane” fonts, they don’t always go together.

How To Freeze Or Uninstall Apps That Came With Your Phone [Android]

One of the biggest problems Android has is that vendors are obsessed with the concept of somehow “adding value” to their devices. Instead of just shipping Android as it was meant to be used, Samsung, HTC, and the other phone makers insist on stuffing their devices full of “unique” applications that make the Android experience infinitely more confusing and irritating.
