Boot To Gecko, Something To Get Excited About?

Boot To Gecko, Something To Get Excited About?

When I first heard about Mozilla’s new project, Boot To Gecko (B2G), an open source operating system for smartphones, I initially thought that Mozilla should better spend the resources on the Firefox web browser.Now that I have read more about it and viewed a demonstration on YouTube, I have to admit that my stance has changed. While I cannot say that Boot 2 Gecko will be successful or widely adopted, I do see the potential that it has.When you look at the smartphone landscape currently,...

Jailbreaking Now Legal, In The US

Jailbreaking refers to methods to modify a device to remove some, or even all, of the restrictions that are imposed on it by its developer. Most people think iPhone if they talk about jailbreaking. A standard iPhone is severely limited, users can for instance only use AT&T as their carrier, and apps are only available through Apple’s official iPhone store. A modified phone on the other hand does not have those restrictions. It is possible to select another mobile phone carrier,...

Temparks, Store Temporary Bookmarks In Google Chrome

Temparks, Store Temporary Bookmarks In Google Chrome

I often store websites I visit in the bookmarks to access their contents at a later time. Happens quite often after reading an RSS feed entry, or stumbling upon an interesting link that I have no time to follow at that moment, and that I do not want to keep open in a browser tab. The problem with this approach is that those “read later” bookmarks get mixed with the other bookmarks. It would of course be possible to create a special bookmarks folder for temporary bookmarks,...

TreeSize Free, Hard Drive Storage Allocation Analyzer

TreeSize Free, Hard Drive Storage Allocation Analyzer

I have to take special attention to the storage space allocation of the main hard drive in my new computer. The Solid State Drive has a size of 80 Gigabytes, which fills up quickly, especially without proper disk management. Installing a single game or large application on the drive could be enough to fill it to the brim, which would result in performance drops all over the board, as hard drives react with performance drops if they are (almost) filled completely with data. TreeSize Free...

Clipbox Stores Multiple Clipboard Entries

Clipbox Stores Multiple Clipboard Entries

If there is one thing that’s not so great about the Windows Clipboard, then its the fact that it only stores one entry at a time. New entries automatically replace the old entries, which can result in lots of copying and pasting if multiple items need to be pasted. Clipbox is a barebones clipboard extender that can store up to two thousand different entries with the possibility to increase that number further by editing the ini file in the same directory as the program executable....
