Tim's Latest Posts
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?
It’s been a few weeks now since HP rolled out a firmware update for their abandoned WebOS tablet and a good while since we’ve mentioned the TouchPad here at MakeUseOf. Seeing as I’m the only staff member who appears to have bought one, I figured it was about time for an update.
This week’s Stuff to Watch is all about sitting back, letting the power of a well-produced documentary wash over you and engaging your grey matter without even leaving the sofa. What’s more each of these films have a geeky twist, be it the story of the modern computer, innovative technology and even the big bad world of file sharing.
iOS 5 added so many features, tweaks and improvements to Apple’s mobile operating system that many inclusions seem to have gone by unannounced. Everyone (including us) has been raving about the new Notification Center, the 4S battery drain feature (!) and the fact that you no longer need iTunes to update, but what else is new?
By now you’re either in love with iOS 5, Notification Centre and vastly improved page rendering times – or you’re banging your head against a brick wall wondering why your device no longer lasts a day without a charge. Apple has acknowledged that some (particularly iPhone 4S owners) are experiencing issues, and for severe battery drain you might want to try re-installing iOS 5 again.
Lip reading is the art of interpreting what is being said solely based on mouth movement – but I’m sure you probably already knew that. Intentionally bad lip reading is a whole different talent altogether, and this week’s Stuff to Watch features some of the funniest examples on the web.
iMaschine is a new app for your iPhone from the clever chaps over at Native Instruments who are responsible for all manner of professional-level music software and hardware – Traktor and Maschine, to name but two. So you’d expect this app to be pretty good right? If you like to groove on the go, read on to find out if iMaschine is set to become your next App Store purchase.
The world’s most advanced mobile operating system just got better, or so they say – and I’m inclined to agree. Apple’s latest iOS release finally brings some much-requested features to the iDevice line-up, with even the original iPad and iPhone 3GS benefiting from the update. Whether you’ve got a new iPhone 4GS or an old iPod Touch 3G there are over 200 improvements,
