Ever had a time in your life where you really needed to put together an impressive presentation? We’ve all been in that type of situation! Sure, a lot of templates exist, but sometimes they either don’t look that great or they aren’t as functional as we’d like them to be. However, with the template set for Powerpoint and Keynote – Slidevana – you get amazing graphics and legitimate functionality. Fortunately, MakeUseOf was able to get its hands on a copy of Slidevana to review, and we’re giving 25 copies worth $2500 away for free!
“2+2 is… err. Um. Can somebody help me out here? Boy, it sure would be nice if I had a calculator. Unfortunately, my phone is dead, this function is much too complicated for my PC’s calculator, and my TI-83 is lost forever. Oh dear, whatever should I do?!” Friends, this certainly is a common problem in the […]
Sometimes there are individuals who simply just don’t do well with social situations that most people face everyday. Do you have trouble going through drive-thru restaurants? Have you ever had problems talking to people while at a party? Then it’s likely you know exactly the type of issues that I am talking about. Honestly, I completely get it. But I have gotten a lot better with it.
Dear MUO readers, I have a confession to make. I’m hungry. I’m hungry, and it’s a late night as I write this. There is light rain trickling down my window, and I can hear the slow, sad song of a jazz man making love to his saxophone in the downpour, playing his heart out for tips that will hopefully satisfy his own food-related woes (somehow, I thought a dramatic introduction would really enhance this article to some degree. It didn’t).
Not too long ago, I wrote an article about how to make your very own music video. It really isn’t that hard if you are going for something simple. However, I’m aware that a lot of people may wonder if this is even feasible or if music videos do well on the web. Well, guess what? They are feasible and they certainly do quite well on the web. So stop worrying about it.
Fact: I’m a romantic. I’m one of those guys who loves love, believes in strong, lasting relationships, and… well… watches chick flicks. I watch them quite often (don’t judge me, okay?). Now, I’ll be honest in that I’m not always the most romantic person in the world. You won’t see me delivering flowers any time soon (however, I once gave my girlfriend beef jerky in lieu of a bouquet once).
A while back, Matt wrote an article about the 2010 YouTube Video Editor, and although it doesn’t seem that long ago, a lot has changed. Back then, it had a few basic features, but in all honesty, it just wasn’t really that functional. However, two years later, it’s high time to revisit the video web app. Everyone deserves a second chance, right? First off, I’ll say this – the YouTube video editor is functional….to an extent.
Canon has just released their new Rebel T4i – their first (of hopefully many) adventures into the touchscreen dSLR world. This camera is a step up from the Canon Rebel T3i (also making it the third dSLR Canon has released with a flip-out LCD). We’ll be taking a look at the Canon Rebel T4i digital SLR, plus a giveaway — yes, we’re actually giving a brand new unit away! Find out more after the review.
We’ve written quite a bit about Photoshop here on MakeUseOf before, and as always, we’re willing to supply you with as many free creative tools as you need to get your work out there. As you may know, brushes are a key element for constructing Photoshop compositions. To your advantage, there are other creatives on the Internet who have made a few of their own so you can download them for free.
Domain names – they’re the real estate of the Internet. Without them, we’d have nowhere to go, and our lives would be spent staring at an empty computer screen (or maybe filled with time spent outside and connecting with real, live, actual people). However, they work a little bit like rental homes and apartments, don’t they? You can never “own” a domain. Eventually, they expire. Sometimes, they just aren’t available.
Ever imagined a robot cameraman? What about your own affordable grappling hook? It’s too bad no one has invented anything like that stuff, yet. Bummer, right? No. These things have already been invented, and their inventors are people like you and me. I’m lying. These people are a lot smarter than me, and I could never invent anything like they have.
No one likes a spammer. I don’t care if the spammer is your grandmother, your Uncle Harold, your second cousin, or your newborn child that you just took home from the hospital yesterday. “Aw, she’s so precious!” No. She’s not. She’s a spammer, and no one likes her. Oh, but the spamming will never cease. Wherever you are on the Internet, there will always be spammy links, especially on Twitter.
We all know that Nintendo is the master of the handheld, but what if the company’s consoles became handhelds? Yeah. A kid can dream…but guess what? Some innovative reverse engineers on the Internet have done just that. Today, I’m going to take you through a few Nintendo mods starting with their very first console and moving up to their most recent one.
I’m not a lawyer, nor do I want to be a lawyer. Nothing against lawyers, of course. It’s just that it’s all a little over my head. However, as we all know, hiring an attorney to do legal work can be terribly expensive. Take contracts for instance. That can cost a pretty penny just to have one written up. However, for the sake of your bank account’s long term health, there are several websites that offer free contract samples for you to download and tweak to your own needs.
Music is the one thing that really translates well among all people groups, and with that said, it’s very exciting to discover new music and share it just to generate discussion! The Internet is likely the best tool for discovering new tunes by independent artists, but with so many different websites to choose from, it can be a little daunting to know where you can find the best selections.
