Mozilla Firefox 5: download fra poche ore

Mozilla Firefox 5: download (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Sono passati pochi messi del rilascio della versione 4 di Mozilla Firefox uno dei browser più utilizzati dagli utenti. Il 2011 ha segnato il sorpasso del programma della volpe fiammante a discapito del famoso Internet Explorer, il quale ha da sempre avuto il monopolio. Tale circostanza è cambiata anche grazie all’entrata in gioco di Chrome il browser ideato da Google. Oggi  la situazione...

Gmail Priority Inbox Puts Important Messages First

Gmail Priority Inbox Puts Important Messages First

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Just completed my first email sweep with Gmail’s new “Priority Inbox” feature enabled, and it’s a keeper. Over time, if this mechanism proves to be as good as Gmail’s top-notch spam filtering, it could be the reason why you only check Gmail in the browser. (Well-played, GOOG.) Priority Inbox adds an “important messages” section above your inbox. Initially, Priority Inbox decides what...

On Google Wave and “Failed” Experiments

On Google Wave and “Failed” Experiments

Yesterday while I was on the air with Jeff and Leo recording TWiG, Google announced that they are halting development on Wave. The webapp will be available till the end of the year–with mechanisms to export your current wave data–and the code will remain open source. As the author of the first user guide on Wave, I spent this morning doing interviews with tech journalists about what this all means. Here are some questions I got asked, and answers I offered. What do you think...

The web attack that leads hackers straight to your home

The web attack that leads hackers straight to your home

Is it possible, is there such a thing as an attack that can tell a hacker where you live?  The BBC has revealed that a specially booby-trapped website can tell a hacker where you are to only a few metres. The attack was dreamt up by security expert Sam Kamkar who demonstrated at the Black Hat hackers conference a website exploiting common shortcomings in a router to reveal it’s real-world location. He tricked the router into believing the request for it’s ID information...

Lengthen Your Attention Span with Interval Training

Lengthen Your Attention Span with Interval Training

Email, IM and the web is a huge distraction, especially for those with short attention spans. My new friend Clay Johnson uses interval training techniques to lengthen his attention span the same way he trained his body to run a marathon. Clay writes: Paying attention, for long periods of time, is a form of endurance athleticism. Like running a marathon, it requires practice and training to get the most out of it. It is as much Twitter’s fault that you have a short attention span...

iPhone 4 versus HTC EVO

iPhone 4 versus HTC EVO

Nicole Lee does the hard work so I don’t have to: feature by feature comparison of the iPhone 4 and the 4G HTC EVO. As far as I’m concerned, the EVO’s the better deal: bigger screen, more customizable OS, Google Maps navigation, Google Voice native app, tethering/portable hotspot, kickstand, Sprint 4G network support, expandable MicroSD up to 32GB, and removable battery. No-brainer. Continua a leggere – Original Link: iPhone 4 versus HTC EVO Technorati Tags:...

Android 2.2 Screenshots: My Favorite Features in Froyo

Android 2.2 Screenshots: My Favorite Features in Froyo

Android 2.2 (code-named “Froyo,” the next alphabetical installment of dessert-named releases after Cupcake, Donut, and Eclair) is now rolling out to Nexus One handsets. If you’re tired of tapping and re-tapping the System Update menu item and getting nothing, you can update your N1 to 2.2 manually. Lifehacker runs down how. This method worked perfectly on my T-Mobile Nexus One, but I hear reports it does not work for the AT&T Nexus One. The manual update method does...

Better Gmail 2 and Better Flickr Updated

Better Gmail 2 and Better Flickr Updated

Released a few fix-it updates to the Better Gmail 2 and Better Flickr Firefox extensions this week, which you can get by pressing the “Find Updates” button in your extensions dialog box. Better Gmail 2 version 1.2 plays catch-up with Google’s latest changes to Gmail: Hide Spam Count now works, and I swapped out Folders4Gmail (which no longer works) with Label Links, a script that does something similar to the Labs version of Nested Labels. Also replaced the CPU-hogging...

Embed Waves on Your Web Site That Anyone Can See

Embed Waves on Your Web Site That Anyone Can See

Google just released an easy way to embed waves on your web site. The Google Wave web element puts a wave on any web page–with anonymous access. That means even people not signed into Wave can read and watch waves that you’ve made public and embedded. (Wavers, here’s how to make a wave public.) Anonymous users can watch a wave change over time on your site, but they won’t be able to edit it. Let’s give it a try. After the jump, check out my first embedded...

What Android Apps I’ve Got Installed–And You?

What Android Apps I’ve Got Installed–And You?

New and aspiring Android users often ask me what apps I have installed on my Nexus One. The list changes pretty often–especially when Leo and Jeff recommend something good on TWiG–but for the most part I keep my Applications menu pared down to just the stuff I actually use. Thanks to AppBrain, I’m now syncing my list of installed apps to the web for easy sharing and updating. Here’s the complete list of what apps are installed on my phone right now. To the left...

Profile And Compare Your Web Browser Against Others

Browserscope is a web service to profile the web browser used to access the website and compare the results against web browsers from other users who have tested theirs on the site as well. The service tests various functions that are divided into the categories security, rich text, selector apis, network and acid 3. All of the categories except the Acid 3 test test multiple features. The profile creation takes some time but the individual tests complete very fast so that it becomes difficulty...

Google Wave in Action: Real-World Use Case Studies

Google Wave in Action: Real-World Use Case Studies

A week ago I asked readers to tell me how they’re using Google Wave in their daily lives, and despite a bit of “ha! no one’s using Wave!” snarking on the Twitter, I got lots of interesting responses. Unsurprisingly, most Wavers use it as a real-time wiki, but some take advantage of features unique to Wave, like inline and private replies, public tags, and gadgets. I featured the most unique use cases I got in a brand new chapter just added to The Complete Guide...

“You’ve Got Waves”: How to Get Google Wave Notifications

“You’ve Got Waves”: How to Get Google Wave Notifications

Once you’re active in Google Wave, you want to know if something new is happening there–even if you don’t have Wave open in your web browser. Several Wave notifier applications and browser add-ons can do the work of checking your Wave inbox for you, and letting you know you’ve got new and changed waves. The following is an excerpt from the all-new Chapter 9 of The Complete Guide to Google Wave. Got feedback? Let me know in the comments and help write the first...

Flash’s Decline on Lifehacker, from 2006 to 2010

Flash’s Decline on Lifehacker, from 2006 to 2010

Just like it isn’t on the iPhone and iPod touch, Adobe’s Flash browser plug-in will not be on the iPad, and there are a whole lot of opinions about that decision. Predictably, Steve’s apostles are smug, Adobe’s pouting, and the rest of us will have to field questions from our relatives about why they keep seeing a blue lego piece. Flash usage has been declining over the years anyway, and a few web publishers have shared numbers to prove the point. 32% of visitors...

Hackers Don’t Tinker Because They Got Invited

Hackers Don’t Tinker Because They Got Invited

Mark Pilgrim’s excellent exposition on the “tinkerer’s sunset” (an idea Alex Payne put forth in his iPad piece I linked earlier) got me thinking about the nature of tinkerers, and whether the iPad really represents a sunset for them. The optimist in me thinks it couldn’t even if it tried. First, know that I fundamentally agree with Alex and Mark: the closed nature of the iPad turns me off, and I wouldn’t give one to my kid if I were encouraging her to...

How to Tether Your Android Phone

How to Tether Your Android Phone

There are three ways to tether your Android handset and get sweet internet love even where there’s no Wi-Fi in sight: the risky-but-free method that requires serious technical skills, the still-geeky-but-not-as-bad free route, and the $30 easy way. Let’s take a look at the pros and cons of each. Method 1: Tether Android with Apps that Need Root (Free, heavy configuration) The Android Wi-Fi Tether application turns your phone into a Wi-Fi hotspot–essentially a MiFi–in...
