Free Wondershare Time Freeze

Free Wondershare Time Freeze

One of the best options to keep an operating system safe is to use virtualization. Virtualization ensures that everything that happens in the virtual environment is not affecting the real computer system. Benefits of this approach include preventing threats from malicious software such as viruses and spyware and leaving no traces on a computer system after restart. Wondershare Time Freeze is a virtualization solution much like Returnil, Sandboxie or Comodo Time Machine. The software...

Memorable & Beautiful: 60 Photos of Greece

Memorable & Beautiful: 60 Photos of Greece

Greece is one of the most beautiful countries in the world. Greece was one of the first places civilization took hold in Europe and is therefore the birthplace of many things we’re familiar with, including the Olympic Games, Western philosophy, democracy, political science, and Western literature and drama. Surrounded by the Aegean Sea on the East, the Mediterranean on the South and the Ionian Sea to the West, it’s made up of a mainland and more than a thousand islands...

Firefox Add-ons Manager Redesign

Firefox Add-ons Manager Redesign

The Firefox add-ons manager is currently hidden deep in the web browser. It can only be accessed by clicking on Tools > Add-ons. The add-ons manager then opens in a new window that gives the user options to manage extensions, themes and plugins. Search engines on the other hand are not maintained in the add-ons manager which is not the most elegant solution. Redesign plans existed for some time but progress has only been made recently. A new – fairly incomplete – preview...

Install Windows 7 Language Packs In All Editions

Install Windows 7 Language Packs In All Editions

The option to install different language packs in Windows 7 is only available in the top of the line editions Windows 7 Ultimate and Enterprise. That’s a bummer if you just bought a laptop overseas only to find out that you cannot switch the language to your native one. Could also be a problem if you live in a multi-person household were different languages are spoken. What can you do to remedy the situation? You could upgrade to Ultimate using the Windows 7 Anytime upgrade. But...

Hello Kate, goodbye vi

Hello Kate, goodbye vi

In my last article I introduced you to Gedit (see “Gedit: No more text-based editor for you!“) and, as promised, this time around we will examine the KDE equivalent…Kate. Kate is an interesting beast in that it is comprised of two parts: KatePart (which is the underlying editor that is also used in other KDE components that require an editor) and Kate (the actual text editor). Kate is a complete rewrite of the older kwrite. And, like Gedit, Kate offers a number of outstanding...

What’s The Best Web Browser For HTML5 Video Playback?

What’s The Best Web Browser For HTML5 Video Playback?

You might have heard about HTML5 and specifically HTML5 Video in the news lately. How it is supposed to replace Flash based video players eventually. Some websites are already experimenting with HTML5 video players including Youtube and Dailymotion. Two standards are currently competing with each other to become the HTML5 video standard: Ogg Theora and h.264. This would not be such a big deal for computer users if most browser developer’s have not decided to support only one of...

Microsoft cancella il progetto Courier

Microsoft cancella il progetto Courier

Non sarà il primo ma nemmeno l'ultimo oggetto che, dopo essere stato progettato, realizzato in alcuni prototipi ed industrializzato, viene abbandonato dal produttore per motivi che possono essere i più disparati, ma fatto sta che quando a cancellare un oggetto a poco tempo da previsto rilascio ufficiale è un colosso come Microsoft, la notizia non passa certo inosservata. La vittima illustre è Courier, atteso dispositivo dual display in grado di svolgere...

Protect Private Email Addresses In Thunderbird

Protect Private Email Addresses In Thunderbird

Chance is you have more than one email address. Many Internet users do. Usually one private and one work related email, or a private and public one. Some users, especially webmasters and developers can have lots more than that but if you got more than one you might have experienced a situation where you send someone an email from the wrong email address, say a private email from a work account or vice verse. PrivateID Reloaded for Thunderbird 3 has been designed to warn the user before...

Steve Jobs on Flash

Steve Jobs on Flash

Steve Jobs’ open letter “Thoughts on Flash” is a win for the open web, and a logical and well-articulated discussion of why Apple won’t allow Flash on the iPhone and iPad. Hooray. But. While Jobs says he refuses to put his products “at the mercy” of a third party, that’s exactly what Apple asks of all its iPhone app developers, to take the chance that Apple won’t distribute their work for arbitrary reasons (they might “confuse”...
