Tunes On The Go: From The Walkman To The iPod & Beyond [Geek History]

Your children will never know what it’s like to have the batteries on a personal cassette player start to run out, as the music slows by a noticeable couple of BPM and Bruce Dickinson’s vocals on your Iron Maiden compilation begin to wane. Heck, your children probably won’t listen to Iron Maiden (mine will, it will be heavily enforced). In the age of streaming media, digital everything and repeated shunning of physical media, the way we consume music continues to evolve.

WeatherBug – Even Better Than The Weather Channel [Android]

Up until about a week ago, I only knew of two legitimate weather sources: The Weather Channel and AccuWeather. Both of these services have apps on Android that provide information on the weather. Imagine my surprise when I hear a lot of people raving about the greatness of WeatherBug. As someone without a weather app, I knew I had to check it out.

Free Image Resizer – An Effortless Way To Resize Images [Windows]

As spoiled as it may sound, having to open a bulky image manipulation software like Paint.NET or Photoshop just to resize an image seems a little inefficient.

How To Speed Up Steam & Get Games Now

I’ve been using Steam for game delivery for some time now. Even when I own physical copies of the games I use the service to download them, safe in the knowledge that the original media is safe. As I write this, I’m fortunate that I have a high speed Internet connection – 50 Mb/s – however it wasn’t always this way.

gedit: One Of The Most Feature-Filled Plain Text Editors [Linux & Windows]

When you think of plain text editors, the first thing that may pop into your head is Windows’ Notepad application. It does exactly what its job description states – plain features for a plain text editor. But this is a common misconception about what plain text editors should be about.

Gaming can be an expensive hobby, whatever your system of choice may be. The games are cheaper on PC, but keeping your rig up to speed in order to play the latest titles can burn through cash quickly.
