ClipGrab Lets You Download Videos From The Internet

ClipGrab Lets You Download Videos From The Internet

When I’m working with the Firefox browser, I use the excellent Download Helper extension for all of my video downloading needs. It is unobtrusive on the page, and supports hundreds, if not thousands of different sites. The extension detects videos playing on a page automatically, and links to the download versions so that you can download the videos to your PC. The core limitation here is that you need to start the video for a second or so, before it is detected.That’s the main...

What would make me touch a Mac

What would make me touch a Mac

2012 or early 2013 will be the time I finally take the plunge and buy an Apple iMac.  This might surprise those of you who know me as, being a Windows MVP (Microsoft Most Valuable Professional) awardee and a Windows author I’m certainly not the typical Apple, Mac or OS X type.  I don’t even currently own any Apple products, I never have.  So why am I now pretty determined to buy a Mac and what is it that’s standing in my way?The main reason for buying a iMac is aesthetics. ...

DataLocker, File Encryption For Windows, Mac, iOS

With cloud hosting taking over much of what we are hosting locally right now in the next ten years or so, it becomes important to protect your remotely saved data from unauthorized access.

The algorithm used might be flawed, or the company might retain the right to decrypt your data at any time. This can for instance happen when authorities ask them to do that.The only solution...

Is Tablet-Creep in Operating Systems a Bad Thing and Must we Accept it?

Is Tablet-Creep in Operating Systems a Bad Thing and Must we Accept it?

Like it or not, it would appear that the tablet-ification of our desktop operating systems is inevitable.  Setting aside the new Metro interface that will take the main focus of Windows 8, Apple are slowly creeping more tablet features into OS X and even Canonical are getting in on the act with their Unity interface for Ubuntu and their removal of drop-down menus.  So is tablet-creep a bad thing, and need we accept it?With Windows 8 out next week in beta we will finally get the answers...

Oggi nuovo D-Day per Apple? (ma iPhone 4 non c’entra)

Oggi nuovo D-Day per Apple? (ma iPhone 4 non c’entra)

One tool, though, has a bit of a different approach. This tool is built into the open source document writer Abiword. We’ve covered Abiword a bit here on Ghacks (for a sample of this content check out my article “Abiword: A lean word processing machine”), but we have yet to touch...

Windows meglio di OS X grazie a Live Suite: parola di Microsoft

Windows meglio di OS X grazie a Live Suite: parola di Microsoft

Microsoft grande mattatrice oggi, con un'affermazione, fatta a corollario del rinnovamento della suite Live, secondo la quale Windows sarebbe meglio di OS X, specie per la gestione delle immagini. Al di là del puro valore di marketing di una simile frase, è evidente come il sistema operativo impiegato sui Mac viene visto con timore dai vertici di Redmond, preoccupati dall'OS della "mela", nonostante i buoni dati di vendita di Windows 7, i quali sembrano...

Ubuntu One Music Store has arrived

Ubuntu One Music Store has arrived

This morning I woke up to write an article for Ghacks. I was searching around for inspiration while I was updating my Ubuntu 10.4 beta install.

Do your own awesome vector posters with Inkscape & potrace
