Automatically Convert Currencies On Web Pages

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Buying goods online in other countries can be a real money saver. It is for instance pretty easy for Europeans to buy in countries of the Europe Union without the fear of having to pay additional taxes which would have to be paid if goods were bought in the US or Asia. Many central Europeans for instance like to shop in the UK, because the prices there are often cheaper even if additional shipping costs have to be paid. Check...

Manage your Kindle in Linux

Manage your Kindle in Linux

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); I’ve owned a Kindle 2 for nearly a year now. I have to say I do love it and am not impressed with the iPad’s ability to allow the user to read books. Why? The Kindle doesn’t offer distractions and I can happily sit by and and read as long as I like with no eye strain and no distractions. But I have to say the Kindle storefront search is pretty bad. I almost always would rather shop from my computer. And as far...

Media Collection Management Software Explorer Plus

Media Collection Management Software Explorer Plus

Explorer Plus sounds like a replacement for Windows Explorer but it is in fact a media collection management software that makes use of Amazon’s vast inventory to offer a semi-automated process of adding collection items to the software’s database. The program needs to be run with administrative privileges, at least under Windows 7, as the data cannot be saved otherwise. But that is the only complication that users will encounter with this collection management software. Explorer...

The Best Android Apps are Made by Google

The Best Android Apps are Made by Google

Right now, Android is the phone OS you want only if your whole life is already tied up in your Google account. All of Android’s can’t-get-this-anywhere-else applications are made by Google. Android’s Gmail client, Google Voice, Google Goggles, Google Maps, and even Google Sky and Google Listen are Android applications that either have no exact parallel on other platforms like the iPhone, or do things that their counterparts on other platforms can’t match.

Amazon Kindle owners who purchased books by George Orwell just realized yesterday that the books were no longer on their device. Amazon apparently deleted the books from the the user devices because of the publisher changing its mind about offering electronic versions of the books. The customers who have bought the books...

Amazon presenterà a breve un nuovo lettore di eBook?

A pochi mesi di distanza dal lancio del lettore di libri elettronici Kindle 2, secondo il New York Times, Amazon potrebbe presentare un nuovo eBook Reader già questa settimana.

Per il resto si prevedono caratteristiche pressapoco invariate rispetto...

Quello che da tempo viene indicato come Kindle-killer, in risposta al dispositivo realizzato da Amazon su espresso volere del suo numero uno Jeff Bezos, può contare su un display da 8 pollici in risoluzione XGA (1024×768...

The Pin Clock Makes Watching Time Tick by Fun [Stuff We Like]

A big part of staying productive is keeping track of time, how much and on what you spend it—so why not make glancing at the clock as fun as possible? The Pin Clock is a nifty digital clock that pushes out pins to display its numbers (like that pin toy thing you used to stick your face into as a kid). Ok fine, we’re no gadget blog, and the whole “keeping track of time” spin is probably a reach—but we just couldn’t resist this one. The Pin Clock will...

Purchase and Download Direct from Microsoft Store [In Brief]

Purchase and Download Direct from Microsoft Store [In Brief]

While there is certainly no shortage of places to purchase Microsoft’s products, now you can buy directly from the source at the new Microsoft Store online. The most obvious advantage offered is that it offers the largest selection of direct software downloads from the company. However, none of the PC games like Flight Simulator X Deluxe can be downloaded (and it’s $4 cheaper from Amazon), nor can Xbox Live or Zune Marketplace purchases be made. And you’ll need a Windows...
