You’re lying in bed, and with Android device in hand, you decide to check some emails. But since you’re lying on your side, it decides to switch over to landscape mode.

How To Create Cool Time-Lapse Videos With ChronoLapse

Have you ever watched a speed-drawing video on YouTube? You know the ones – they often feature some great Photoshop artist showing off their skill by creating a beautiful piece of art right in front of your eyes. A large part of what makes them so impressive is how fast everything happens. The video is shown in fast-forward, so that every second of video is actually several seconds (or even a minute) of real time.

Solarized – A Crisp, Scientifically-Based Color Scheme For Your Apps

If you spend your days in front of a computer monitor, color can be an important tool in the fight against fatigue and eye strain. Just about every text editor supports syntax coloring, and many editors come with an array of color schemes for you to choose from. There are virtually thousands of other schemes available online, and yet I’ve never seen one that’s quite like Solarized.

Try New Firefox Features Before Anyone Else With Firefox Nightly & Other Channels

Mozilla has recently been trying to up its game in the browser war, and step up the innovation. They realized they needed to get new features to end users more quickly, so to do this, they set up several new “channels”. If names like Nightly, Aurora and Beta seem confusing, hopefully this post will help set things right. Let’s see how you can get each version and learn a bit about switching channels.
