Stickies – The Best Way to Keep Sticky Notes On Your Windows PC

The other day, I realized something that both shocked and delighted me. In the entire span of MakeUseOf’s existence, its authors seem to have missed one application which I deem absolutely essential to my day-to-day experience – the free and awesome Stickies by Zhorn Software. In a nutshell, it’s an application that lets you create little “sticky notes” and put them all over your screen.

Why Smartphones Are Awesome: The Case For Checking Email All The Time

A few weeks ago, we had a post published where Yaara wrote why she thinks many people use smartphones way too much, and why they may not be all that great. While many of Yaara’s arguments are insightful and convincing, I happen to be one of those people who are obsessively tethered to their phone, addicted to checking email.

How To Block Unwanted Calls On Your Android Phone

With my ancient Nokia, when people were calling and bugging me, I couldn’t do much about it. The phone would ring, I would glance at the caller ID and silence it. If it was someone particularly insistent, I had to repeat the process several times, or just turn off the phone. With Android, I no longer have to do this. I’m going to show you two different ways to block unwanted callers.

Control Other Computers Remotely For Free With Chrome Remote Desktop [Cross-Platform]

Like many other tech nerds, I am often called upon to seize control of some system remotely and rescue its user from some evil manifestation of technology. This isn’t my job (I don’t do this “commercially”), so my free tool of choice is TeamViewer. But when I heard Google released something called Chrome Remote Desktop, my curiosity was piqued, so I decided to give it a try.

The Dead People Server – Announcing Dead People Since 1994

Yes, you read that right – the Dead People Server. This is a personal project started back in 1994 by Laurie Mann, who apparently has a passion for tracking dead people. These are not just ordinary people, though. The Dead People Server contains a list of over 3,800 noteworthy individuals who have passed on, along with a bit of information about each.

Cook Amazing Food From Anywhere On The Web With ChefTap For Android [2.1+]

Food and smartphones can be a fantastic combination, and I don’t mean you should stir-fry your Droid. Some of the more recent Android smartphones have large screens (4.3”), and some even come with their own kickstand that lets you prop them up for easy viewing while cooking. All that’s left now is finding a good recipe app that can take you through the cooking process with style.

Tweak Windows 7 And Learn More About Your Computer With EnhanceMySe7en

I’m one of those people who like to have their computers “just so”. Before Windows 7 came along, I was an avid Litestep user for years. Windows 7 offers a beautiful interface that is actually usable (a great improvement), but still, there are plenty of things that could be changed and customized. EnhanceMySe7ven is a free app for tweaking these settings, and it also provides lots of system information.
