While Twitter is a great tool for keeping up with breaking news, product updates and celebrity chatter, the more people you add, the more “noise” that you wind up trying to filter through to get to the stuff you want. Enter Hibari, the new Mac client for Twitter that lets you easily keep your tweet stream clutter-free.
Apple has just released a Snow Leopard graphics update that fixes all of your video game woes.
The update contains stability and performance fixes that address the frame rate issues in Valve's Portal and Team Fortress 2, as well as an issue that causes Aperture 3 or StarCraft II to randomly quit or become unresponsive.
If you've been having issues with your favorite games for awhile now, this simple, 70MB update just might fix your problem.
The streaming content wars are heating up, and thus far it seems to come down to one of two worthy contenders: Venerable DVD-by-mail provider Netflix in one corner, slugging it out with ad-supported, studio-funded rival Hulu Plus, who earlier this month brought their popular service to iOS devices (and more) at long last.
Unfortunately, we’re not all made of money, so if you’re sitting there wondering which service offers the most bang for the buck, wonder no more: Just read on and you be the judge -- or we’ll make the decision for you.
From the moment you take it out of the box, Doxie will charm you--and not just because it’s adorned with pink heart stickers. Doxie is a portable, easy-to-use scanner that may very well replace that huge hunk of a scanner you have collecting dust in the corner of your home office—as long as your scanning needs fall into the “nothing too complicated” category.
Ever wondered where those two little symbols we see everyday, the command key and the spinning beach ball of death (aka SBBOD, Rainbow Ball), come from? We're sure you're wondering now, so why don't we fill you in, courtesy of those zany folks at Gizmodo and a little Wiki knowledge.
Early this morning, Barnes and Noble released Nook updates for iPhone, iPad, and PC versions of the App. The applications have been completely revamped to include features like themes, day/night content options, line spacing, font styles, preferred justification, previews, and more. Best of all, the iPhone 4 version now adds hi-res images for the Retina display.
Granted Firefox can have its ups and downs. However, one feature of the browser that has recently come about, that really hasn't received much attention. You can build your own add-ons for the browser.
We still miss our now-defunct local video store, but yes, Netflix movies beamed right to our TV is a pretty fair trade. And if Netflix streaming hasn’t found its way to your TV yet via a game console, Blu-ray player, or TiVo, the WD TV Live Plus (the fourth iteration in Western Digital’s line of home media players) makes a great purchase. After all, who doesn’t want to pipe their digital videos, music, and photos to their existing TV and stereo these days? If that’s a superpower your living room lacks, the Live Plus can be your radioactive spider with minimal hassle and none of that messy biting.
A child born on the day the original StarCraft was released is now a gawky, braces-wearin’, growth-spurtin’ 12-year-old. While that’s a sobering thought for us older gamers, and a ridiculous time to wait between for a sequel, the fact remains that StarCraft and its Brood War expansion pack helped define the real-time strategy genre, and the long-anticipated StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty is absolutely worth the wait.
With the Mac’s drag-and-drop interface, you’d think duplicating files would be a snap. And if all you’re doing is a simple, one-time copy job, it is. But OS X doesn’t offer much help if you want to regularly keep files in sync. Sure, Time Machine handles backups, but even that has its limits. You might want to work on your local machine for speed’s sake, but then regularly copy your work over to a network drive, for example. Or maybe you have a set of working files that needs to be dumped to a USB stick at the end of every work day. GoodSync can handle both of those situations easily--and it can be used in place of Time Machine if Apple’s simple backup doesn’t quite meet your needs.
