9 Cool Free Novels You Can Download On Amazon For Your Kindle

The Amazon Kindle is an amazing device. Just a few short years ago, getting quality books for free wasn’t an option. You could always go to the library, but then the book wasn’t really yours to keep. With the Kindle, all that has changed. There’s an endless supply of free books offered on Amazon. Some are timeless classics which have become public domain works, while others are new works by budding authors looking for exposure and recognition.

Use Your Smartphone As a YouTube Remote Control With Any Computer [Android 2.0+]

YouTube Remote is a fantastic and free Android application by Google that lets you control YouTube on any PC using your smartphone. I found out about it thanks to commenter TKCOLE, who recommended it in the comment section of our Best Of Android page.

3 Interactive, Fun, Free Ways To Start Learning The Ruby Programming Language

Ruby is an expressive, very high-level, scripting language. It is used on the Web mainly as part of the Ruby on Rails web development framework, but also standalone.

Listen To Full Length Music Albums For Free With Bandcamp

Sometimes it feels like the entrenched music industry (embodied by the big labels) is doing everything it can to keep us feeling like pirates for wanting to download music. But no matter how much they try to keep the old model (“artist to label, label to consumer”) alive, it is actually dying. Things are changing, and artists have amazing tools for reaching listeners directly these days.
