Manage your Kindle in Linux

Manage your Kindle in Linux

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 as adding books – well, you can drag and drop them into...

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.

Pingdom Accounts [Christmas Giveaway]

Convert iTunes PodCasts Into RSS Feeds

Convert iTunes PodCasts Into RSS Feeds

Feed Flipper has been designed by Adam Schlitt to...

Tweet from the command line with Twidge

Tweet from the command line with Twidge

For the longest time I refused to see the value in Twitter. Over the last six months I have changed my tune on that. Now I use Twitter primarily as a PR tool for my articles.

Twidge does not have an application or daemon running in the background. Twidge does not have a panel applet. Twidge doesn’t even remain open...
