Automatically Minimize Windows After Inactivity

Automatically Minimize Windows After Inactivity

Most computer users work with a basic set of programs most of the time. Some of these programs are active most of the time, web browsers or games for instance, while others, like email clients are mostly inactive and only activated at times. Inactive windows and programs can take up valuable screen space. Most users minimize the programs to avoid this but it quickly becomes a repetitive process as the program windows need to be minimized whenever the programs have been accessed by the...

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...

How Google Changed the Game in 2009

How Google Changed the Game in 2009

This past year was a watershed moment for the real-time web, cloud computing, and mobile application development, thanks in large part to Google. This morning over at Lifehacker, I rounded up the biggest Google product releases and updates of 2009. I may co-host a weekly podcast dedicated to Google news, but seeing the amount of mind-bending stuff Google released this year in one place still blew my mind. While Google’s three biggest launches of the year–Wave, Chromium OS,...

Thunderbird 3 RC 2

Thunderbird 3 RC 2

The Mozilla Thunderbird developers have updated the upcoming version 3 of our favorite desktop email client. Thunderbird 3 RC2 is the second release candidate of the email software. It is, from looking at the changes, an unplanned release, as it only fixes four bugs when compared to the first release candidate. One of the bugs on the other hand received a critical rating which seemed to have affected the email client’s stability. It mentions a shutdown hang with high cpu usage and...

Give "Experience" Gifts this Holiday If You’re Low on Cash [Gift Giving]

With excess cash in short supply these days, no one wants to feel like a gift given is unappreciated. Ensure the people on your gift-giving list enjoy themselves by giving an experience instead of stuff. Photo by aaronjacobs Money-wise weblog The Simple Dollar suggests experience-based gift giving is not only easier on the pocketbook, but will create a better experience for the recipient.

Apostrophe.me Explains When You Really Need Apostrophes [Writing]

Apostrophe.me Explains When You Really Need Apostrophes [Writing]

Apostrophes are both over- and under-utilized in the English language. A light-hearted but factual illustration at apostrophe.me makes flowchart-style sense of when to bust out the vertically flipped comma. Update: Apologies for the duplicate post. From the cracked but clever mind of Matthew Inman and his site The Oatmeal, “How to Use an Apostrophe” is worth bookmarking, printing, or just remembering as a Google phrase (it currently ranks as the top result for, well, “How...

VHD Attach Adds Virtual Hard Drive Mounting to Your Right-Click Menu [Downloads]

Windows 7/Windows Server 2008: If you’re a fan of the virtual hard drive system available in newer versions of Windows but you’re not a fan digging in the control panel for clunky mounting and unmounting, check out VHD Attach. The default method for mounting and unmounting a VHD is either to drill down through several layers of windows or bust out a command at the command prompt. VHD Attach simply adds a right-click “Attach” and “Detach” entry when you...
