Watch All Your Videos & Music With Totem Movie Player [Linux]

Everyone likes a good media player, no matter what system they’re using. While I still highly recommend VLC media player as one of the best for any system because of its wide range of playable formats and open source nature, it certainly isn’t the only media player worthy of your time. In fact, most of the popular Linux distributions come with a very worthy media player which can play a decent amount of formats and is rather simple to use.

Reblorg – Original & Creative Tumblr Content You Can Reblog & Promote

Tumblr has become more than just a blogging, or micro-blogging, platform. It’s become the source of original content, with people creating graphics, GIFs, short videos, poems, haikus, and anything else you could care to mention, before posting them to the Web using Tumblr. It is also the perfect platform for reblogging other people’s content, with a dedicated option to do just that. The only problem is finding content worth reblogging.

5 Reasons To Go Back To SimCity 4 [Opinion]

The city builder is a genre that’s nearly disappeared over the last decade. It’s a victim of the market. City builders aren’t the kind of flash-bang titles that big publishers usually love, but they’re also too complex for most small studios to tackle. Electronic Arts will finally revive the SimCity franchise next year, but if you haven’t played the game recently – or *gasp* at all – here are five reasons to fire it up.

Picasa – Still The Best & Most Versatile Photo Manager Available

How many photos would you say you have? More than a hundred? Six hundred? A thousand? Pictures are a big part of all of our lives, but there is else something which is equally important and that is where those precious pictures are stored. You likely keep the majority of them on your computer (although more and more, we are relying on smartphones). But what happens when you add them to your computer? Do you organize them?

Wunderlist – The Best To-Do List Application On The iPhone [iOS]

Wunderlist is one of the simplest ways to keep track of what you need to do. It has an elegant user interface that just makes sense. Anyone can pick it up and figure out how to use it with little or no direction. That is why I use it every day to keep track of my tasks here at MakeUseOf. I love that I can simply log in, type myself a quick description of the task at hand and save it for later.

Tweak Mac OS X & Access Hidden Settings With Mountain Tweaks & Lion Tweaks [OS X]

Apple’s walled-garden approach to computing has some pretty far-reaching implications for an everyday user of OS X. Apple provides, on the whole, a smooth and pleasant experience while using your computer, partly because the options that will break something aren’t there. Conversely, this approach can be quite limiting – especially to those who are used to endless preferences on Windows or Linux.

3 Handy Mouse Tricks You’ve Probably Never Heard Of [Windows]

The computer mouse is an incredibly nifty device, which unfortunately, a lot of people do not use to its full potential. There are many more things the mouse can do than left-click to move and select things or right-click to bring up context menus. Many of the tricks are easy to learn as they depend on no more than three keyboard keys. However, they can turn out to be huge time savers and making some tasks much easier.

How To Use Microsoft Excel To Manage Your Life

However, if you’re serious about using Excel to manage more of your life, then you should take the time to learn how VBA coding works. If you want to enhance your use of Excel, I invite you to follow along as I share a few of these designs.

Never Be Embarrassed By Your Computer’s Speakers Blasting Sound Again [Windows]

Have you ever pulled out your laptop in public and had to fumble for the mute button as its speakers blasted loud sounds? Or have you used your computer late at night and accidentally woke people up when a video appeared on a webpage? Unfortunately, our computers can’t read minds (yet) and don’t know when we want them silent and when we want them loud. There are some settings you can tweak – and a useful application you can install.
