3 Ways the Portable Apps Platform Will Make Your Life Easier

Portable apps have a huge place in my geeky heart simply because they are quite numerous (if you don’t believe me, check out the Best Portable Apps here). They don’t modify the registry, and can be used in different Windows machines (though there are portable apps for Linux as well). Up until recently though, maintaining portable apps was not pleasant for me.

Are YOU a Facebook Power User? [INFOGRAPHIC]

I was under the impression that I was a pretty enthusiastic user of Facebook, but it seems that I am minor small beans compared to some people, who have been labelled “Facebook Power Users” (sounds like a superhero team, fighting the bad guys by “poking” them).

9 Fun Shooting Games Not Blocked by Most School Firewalls [MUO Gaming]

Let’s face it, shooting games are really fun. Kids love them! I wouldn’t say that kids like them so much necessarily because of the violence. I think it’s more about the whole “tag-you’re-it” mentality. From when kids are very small, they start playing tag. Once kids get into playing online games, “tag-you’re-it” turns into “bang-you’re-dead”. Morbid, I know, but still…follow along with my logic here.

The 3D Printing Revolution Leaps Ever Closer to Consumer Level

3D printers have been a reality for some time now, but if we’re honest the majority of them are – let’s say – for hobbyists. Although it’s very impressive and meta to say that one RepRap printer can print off 40% of the parts for another, those parts still need a delicate hand and a good amount of geekery to produce another machine. Until now, these things have very much been out of the hands of consumers like you or me.

The 10 Best Twitter Feeds To Follow

There are an awful lot of guides out there listing the so-called best feeds to follow on Twitter. Narrowing down a list of the ten best feeds can be tricky. There are so many users, so many fascinating topics – presenting only ten is barely scratching the surface of Twitter utopia. So my approach has been this – I like MakeUseOf, you like MakeUseOf – so there is a very good chance that you’ll like some or all of these Twitter feeds.
