Hit Up Farmers’ Markets when Cooking for One [Saving Money]

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Grocery stores are full of deals involving two-for-one, 30 percent more, family sizes, and other bulk deals. None of that helps, though, if the food goes to waste. The Washington Post suggests farmers’ markets, and creativity, for single cooks. Photo by Ed Yourdon. The article is framed around a farmers’ market tour with Judith Jones, the literary agent who rescued both The Diary of Anne Frank and Julia Child’s...

Configure Google Apps For Your Domain

Configure Google Apps For Your Domain

There’s always lots of interest in posts about Google Apps, a lesser-known way to put Google services behind your domain name. This morning at Lifehacker I ran down some of the most important Google Apps settings, and how to do things like map multiple domains to one account, create users and groups, and configure your catch-all domain email address. Here’s more on how to Trick Out Google Apps for Your Domain. Continua a leggere – Original Link: Configure Google Apps...

Get It Wrong Before You Google to Learn It Better [Study Hacks]

Get It Wrong Before You Google to Learn It Better [Study Hacks]

We live in an era where the answer to almost any fact-based question is no further than a Google search away, but Scientific American highlights a study suggesting subjects forced to get something wrong before being told the answer learn it better. Photo by John Althouse Cohen. In many ways the results don’t seem terribly surprising—everyone’s had that one fact they remember better than all the rest because it was the one they kept getting wrong. But it also flies in...

Prevent Google, Bing, and Yahoo from Tracking Your Clicks [Privacy]

Prevent Google, Bing, and Yahoo from Tracking Your Clicks [Privacy]

Every time you click results in Google, Yahoo, or Bing, a special URL tracks your click—and makes it annoying to copy and paste. The CyberNet blog runs down click-track-preventing tools for all three search engines. On the Google side, CyberNet recommends a familiar Greasemonkey Script and extension, both of which we’ve covered before. CyberNet’s post goes the extra mile, though, in covering tools that remove click tracking and block HTTP referral sniffing on Yahoo, Bing,...

Netflix Update Comes to Windows 7 Media Center, Looks Excellent [Windows 7]

Microsoft added Netflix support to Vista’s Media Center back in May, and starting today they’re rolling out an upgraded Watch Instantly interface to Windows 7 Media Center for users looking to get their streaming TV and movie fix on their upgraded PCs. Gadget weblog Engadget spotted the update this afternoon, and while the improvement hasn’t added support for Media Center extenders (like the Xbox 360) or HD streaming (bummer), it’s a great feature if you’ve...

Multi Image Downloader Grabs Pics in Bulk from Google [Downloads]

Multi Image Downloader Grabs Pics in Bulk from Google [Downloads]

Windows: Google Image Search is great at showing thumbnail results, but not so hot at making full-size originals easy to download. Free and portable app Multi Image Downloader is a two-step bulk downloader that’s really simple to use. Multi Image Downloader can’t do its own searching, but instead asks you to copy and paste the URL address from any Google Image Search. Given that Google now lets searchers pin down exact sizes and color tendencies, it makes some sense that this...

De-Stink Smelly Shoes With Cat Litter [Clever Uses]

Do you have a pair of shoes that aren’t worn out, but are just too smelly to wear? You could buy any number of de-smelling solutions from your local big box store, but we head straight for the cat litter. Photo by Poolie. To eliminate odors inside your shoe, simply fill a loose knit sock or some pantyhose with litter and tie it off. Work it into each shoe and allow to sit for 24 hours.

86% of You Are Upgrading to Windows 7 [What You Said]

86% of You Are Upgrading to Windows 7 [What You Said]

Windows 7’s release is just around the bend (it’s Thursday, actually), and last week, to get a better idea of how many of our readers are planning to join in the fun, we asked you whether or not you were planning to upgrade to Windows 7. Your answer is clear: Yes. You. Are. In fact, 34% of you are already using Windows 7, while 26% have pre-ordered. Another 26% plan to make the upgrade eventually but would presumably rather let others test the waters a bit first. A very small...

Enable MMS on Your 2G iPhone [IPhone]

Enable MMS on Your 2G iPhone [IPhone]

AT&T rolled out MMS to the iPhone 3G and 3GS last month, but if you’re the proud owner of a first generation 2G iPhone, you don’t get the “new” feature. If you’re feeling left out and adventurous, this hack brings the MMS. The particularly annoying thing about Apple not enabling MMS on the 2G iPhone is that there’s no hardware limitation. (Presumably they just want to give consumers one more reason to upgrade.) A user at iPhone-hacking forum Hackint0sh...

The Polder Dual-Purpose Thermometer and Timer [Stuff We Like]

The Polder Dual-Purpose Thermometer and Timer [Stuff We Like]

A good cooking thermometer is a must-have tool for any kitchen, and the Polder all-in-one timer/thermometer looks like an excellent, inexpensive cooking companion for any budding chef or grill-master. We’ve previously recommended the Taylor digital instant-read pocket thermomenter ($7), and while it’s highly rated and even cheaper than the Polder timer and thermometer, it doesn’t boast quite the depth of functionality that seem to go so well with its use. From smart buys...

Install Windows’ Old-School "Help" in Windows 7 [Downloads]

Windows: If you’ve installed older software in Windows 7, you might notice that .hlp-formatted Help files aren’t recognized or supported. Microsoft offers a free download to read and manage those WinHelp files.

Build a Temporary Wood-Fired Pizza Oven On the Cheap [Weekend Project]

Build a Temporary Wood-Fired Pizza Oven On the Cheap [Weekend Project]

We detailed how to build a backyard wood-fired pizza oven earlier this year, but if you’d like to make your own but don’t have the space for a permanent installment in your backyard, this low-cost temporary pizza oven might do the trick. This temporary oven was built for a weekend pizza-making event. It was built, fired up, and torn down in one afternoon, and according to the author of the DIY, he “cooked the best pizza I’ve ever made, by far.” If you’ve...
