The internet is abound with wonderful things, like ridiculous pictures of galaxy cats, search engines that find super secret mixes and b-sides from your favorite music artists, social networking sites that violate all the principles of privacy and websites filled with free software. Yes, that's right, free software, and especially open source software. Open source is wonderful because it gives developers a hobby, and the users some hope that their favorite free software will only get better with age--sort of like a fine wine.
This week, we're covering open source software like WordPress, Miro and WikiHow.
Miro is an open source video player that does more than just display the latest episodes of your favorite television shows. The software can play over 6,000 different types of video files and the interface is easy to navigate. Though you may be wondering what this software has over other open source video players like VLC, this one can download (legal) torrents and podcasts from a variety of video channels hosted on the service.
WordPress has this nifty iPad app that'll enable you to manage your WordPress account from anywhere you've got a WiFi or 3G connection. And on the iPad, there's plenty of screen real estate to tippa-tappa away about your day, and post it for all the world to see.
Sort of like How Cast, this free app enables you to find, view, and read up on a number of topics, like how to escape a car on a cliff's edge, or even navigate through a minefield. There's also an emergency survival kit that the app stores for offline use, in case you're, y'know, in the middle of the dessert with no signal.
