The Computer Chronicles was an American television series that aired on the country’s public broadcasting network PBS from 1981 until 2002. More than 20 years of technological advancement in consumer electronics was recorded, discussed and now, thanks to the Internet Archive has been preserved indefinitely for your enjoyment.
I think it’s safe to assume most people take their smartphone cameras for granted, despite the leaps and bounds made in pocketable picture-taking technology. Unfortunately a lot of the time our smartphones produce overly blurry photos, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be this way. A lot of the time blurry photos are the result of simple user error and sub-par stock software. With the right techniques and apps you can vastly improve the results provided by your smartphone’s camera.
I recently cancelled my Spotify Premium membership after a year of uninterrupted monthly payments to the company. This decision came about when I accidentally signed up for 14-days of free Rdio Unlimited. Quite frankly, I was left confused as to who I should be paying money to and after playing with both services there’s a good chance you would be too. If you’re choosing to take the Netflix-style “all you can eat” route with your music, you’ve got quite a selection of services to choose from – but who reigns supreme?
This week it’s time for something altogether cuddlier than the usual collection of B-movie horror and considerably cuter than dystopian apocalypse films , these are videos my girlfriend wants you to watch. Maybe these are videos your girlfriend will love too. Maybe you even happen to be one of these mysterious girlfriend creatures.
I’ve spent around a week playing with Apple’s preview version of iOS 7 in its current beta form and in that time I’ve had plenty of time to peruse Apple’s vision for the future of iOS. It goes without saying that passing judgement at this stage would be a very silly thing to do – after all, the OS is still half-baked and there are months of development to go. Why, then, did so many people form negative opinions of the refresh, Jony Ive’s homework and Apple’s current state of affairs within hours of the company’s WWDC 2013 announcement?
There’s a surprising amount of free Xbox 360 content for Xbox Live Gold subscribers to download. In addition to avatar items, themes and the odd bonus item Microsoft has been known to release whole free games and DLC, particularly for Kinect and Xbox Live Arcade users. Whichever console you buy at the end of the year, be sure to see the 360 off in style with as much free content as you can fit on your hard drive.
Don’t be put off by the words “cheap” and “tasteless” – when it comes to mass-produced B-movies this is among some of the highest accolades a budget horror can achieve – and if there’s one company that knows how to make a cheap and tasteless horror film, it’s Troma. Formed in 1974 in New York, Troma have been the masterminds behind some of the most iconic shockers of the last three decades.
After a week of anticipation, Facebook has unveiled its mystery announcement: video for Instagram. The new feature is already available via an app update for both iOS and Android and allows users to shoot 15 seconds of video to share on the service, much like Twitter’s Vine.
These days I think it’s important for everyone to at least register (if not use) a domain that is personal to them. Not only are domain names under current top-level domains running out , but it’s often near-impossible to reclaim a domain once it has been taken. This means you should act fast and grab your domain now.
When Apple released the MacBook Pro with Retina display this time last year, they raised the bar for laptop display technology, as they previously did for the smartphone and tablet industries. The only issue they created was a software one: suddenly apps designed for non-Retina screens looked bad. If you’ve got a Retina-equipped MacBook, or are considering one, you should know why old software looks bad and what little you can do to help the situation.
The Open University is a world renowned British institution of higher education offering people all over the world the chance to earn a first-class degree without ever stepping foot in a lecture theater. Thanks to the Internet, the Open University is now able to offer more courses to more people than ever before, and their YouTube channel helps market their wares.
The best camera you can possibly lay your hands on is the one that you currently have on you, or so the saying goes. Ever since hardware manufacturers started putting bigger and better cameras on our devices, we’re always in the presence of a capable camera – so what about video? If you have a recent smartphone capable of shooting 1080p full-HD video, you might be surprised at the potential you have in your pocket. With the right apps, techniques and a few inexpensive accessories you could turn your iPhone or similar into a highly capable video capture device.
The web is awash with talk of Apple’s new mobile operating system in the wake of WWDC 2013. As with all new iterations of iOS, Apple developers get access before the rest of us who will have to wait till “fall” for the official build. While having your own developer account is one way to secure early access to the iOS 7 beta, it’s not the only way of doing so. There are a couple of other things you can try, so if you lack patience and absolutely need to get your mitts on iOS 7 – read on.
One thing that has always annoyed me about YouTube is a lack of proper channels. A typical “YouTube channel” is merely one user’s collection of videos. Not so on Vimeo; a channel is a user-created collection of videos from any of the service’s content producers. Channels revolve around themes and interests.
