Is Adobe Actively Encouraging International Software Piracy? [Opinion]

How To Design Your Own Awesome Workstation

How To Design Your Own Awesome Workstation

I work in a tiny apartment, and use two 24” monitors. I needed a workstation that fits into a tiny niche, but can still accommodate me for many hours every day and let me work productively. This called for a custom solution, and I rose to the challenge, designing my one-of-a-kind workstation. While it’s fun to show and tell, I think I’ve learned some valuable lessons along the way.

My Favorite Apps of 2011: The Best of the Best [Mostly For Android]

2011 has been an intense year for me. I started writing for MakeUseOf early May, and it has been an absolute blast so far. I often like to take an in-depth look at a single app or website when I write (although I’ve been known to write up the occasional round-up). Some of the apps I got to review this year were real gems, so I thought it might be nice to compose a list of the cream of the crop

Feeling Sad Or Down? Here Are 10 Websites That Will Help You Feel Better

The holidays are upon us, but so is winter (for many of us, at least). Having to stay indoors all day long can be depressing, and there can be other things that bring us down, too. Worry not – the Internet is here to help! I asked all MakeUseOf staff writers to pitch in and share some recommendations for their most uplifting, inspiring or funny websites to browse when you’re down.

What Is Telnet & What Are Its Uses? [MakeUseOf Explains]

Technology Explained

What Is Telnet & What Are Its Uses? [MakeUseOf Explains]

Telnet is one of those tech terms you may occasionally hear, but not in an ad or a feature laundry list of any product you may buy. That’s because it’s a protocol, or a language used to talk to computers and other machines; not only that, but Telnet is actually ancient in Internet terms, dating back from 1973. So what is Telnet, and what is it good for, anyway?

Think You Can Type Fast? Try These 4 Free Typing Test Sites & Find Out!

They tell me touchscreens are taking over the world, and Windows 8 is going to be composed mainly of huge brightly colored tiles, easy to hit with a fat finger (or your nose). Until that happens, I’ll stick to my trusty keyboard (and Colemak, my layout of choice). But having a keyboard (and even a nice layout) is just not going to cut it – if you use a computer for a living, you need to type like a pro.

BioDigital Human – An Amazing 3D Map & Reference Of The Human Body

Remember Google Body Browser? This used to be a very cool Google Labs project that let you view a 3D map of the human body and learn about it. Well, it’s gone now, such is the way of some Labs projects. The company behind it, Zygote, says that that it will release it as a full product. But that doesn’t mean you have to wait, because BioDigital Human is available right now, for free.

5 Gorgeous Go Launcher EX Themes To Make Your Droid Sexier Than Ever [Android 2.0+]

It can be said that the app launcher is the defining app for the Android user experience. If you’re stuck with a crappy launcher, you may feel the entire Android experience is lacking. Fortunately, there’s no lack of excellent launchers on the Market, including such crowd-pleasers as LauncherPro and ADW.Launcher. My own personal favorite is Go Launcher EX.
