Movie trailers are designed to tantalize an audience into wanting to spend their hard earned cash in the cinema. Now there are a few terrible movie trailers of bad films, but generally speaking many are entertaining enough to endure. The following trailers though, will probably not have the desired effect of making you want to part with your cash or your spare time.
Windows users looking for an easy way to convert their FLAC files to MP3 format are in luck this month as FLAC to MP3 drops its usual $29.95 price tag and goes free for the festive season. FLAC stands for Free Lossless Audio Codec and provides superior sound quality to “lossy” MP3 files at the expense of disk space.
After yesterday’s new Xbox 360 dashboard launch, Microsoft has now released two mobile apps that each provide differing levels of Xbox LIVE and console interactivity. By far the more advanced of the two is the Xbox Companion for Windows Phone 7, which offers more features than its iOS counterpart.
Discovering a new artist, album or record label that corresponds with your tastes and expectations can be a rewarding experience. These golden discoveries can be few and far between and that’s where I turn to using a few extra tools to help hone in on the music I love. We first featured SoundCloud on MakeUseOf initially back in 2008, and while the core service largely remains the same; much has changed.
After a short delay Microsoft has finally pushed out a long-awaited update that is set to change the way users use and interact with their Xbox 360 console. The updates run deep but immediately noticeable is the brand new Windows Phone 7-style user interface that bears more than a little resemblance to the new Windows 8 “Metro” design.
A flaw that allowed Facebook users to view other members’ private photos has been quickly patched by the social networking giant. The bug which was discovered by members of the Bodybuilding.com forums allowed users to view photos which had been set to “private” via Facebook’s own abuse reporting tool.
Chiptune is a fairly broad term used to describe music that has been programmed to play on old, often 8bit sound chips from days of yore. The term can also refer to modern examples of video game inspired music, with artists like Anamanaguchi rocketing to fame complete with Game Boys in hand.
It’s December already, and that means Christmas is just around the corner. What better way of getting in the mood than sitting back and enjoying some festive fluff once you’ve decked the halls and wrapped the presents? This week’s article features a healthy mix of classic and obscure, featuring both short films and full movies […]
Single serving websites are those pointless, often one-page sites that mostly exist for laughs with very little real-world value. If you’ve ever visited YTMND (You’re The Man Now Dog) then you’ve already experienced this flavour of Internet humour, and people are more than willing to spend their own money on proper domain names in the pursuit of comedy.
Storm chasing might be considered a strange way to spend your weekends, but if it’s isobars and radar images that get you hot under the collar then this line-up of apps for your iOS device is bound to help scratch the itch. The benefits of using an iPhone or 3G iPad whilst out chasing bad weather are fairly obvious. Apple’s devices both provide GPS functionality and access to mapping information in a flash
Another Stuff to Watch, another batch of mind-bending space videos! This week’s collection is comprised solely of videos shot from space, meaning all 6 films below were captured far away from the safety and comfort of the Earth’s atmosphere. So if you’re sitting in work (bored), why not engage in a little celestial wonder? You might learn something.
Grooveshark has been a personal favourite music streamer for a few years now, particularly since Spotify took half their music offline to non-subscribers and nerfed the free membership. That’s not to say that Grooveshark is perfect – far from it. The interface has been in need of an update for a while, and finally the service has a new lease of life.
Good Old Games, or GOG for short, is a service that specialises in charming games of years gone by. If you’re a Windows user then you’ve pretty much got complete access to the entire catalogue, from old-school shooters to those resource management RTS games they just don’t make any more.
During the Second World War film-makers on both sides of the Atlantic were put to work on morale-boosting and influential propaganda films – Walt Disney included. The master of animation was determined to put his characters to use in the war effort, especially Donald Duck.
Linux is a highly developed, stable and advanced operating system – this, I will never question. It comes in every conceivable flavour – from server solutions that simply work (again, this cannot be argued with) to desktop releases with more software than anyone could possibly ever need. So what’s the problem?
