HP presenta TouchPad: obiettivo iPad

HP presenta TouchPad: obiettivo iPad

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); I sostenitori di Apple probabilmente diranno che il nuovo ed atteso TouchPad di HP è una copia di iPad, ma in certe dispute sterili è opportuno non entrare; sul fronte della mera considerazione oggettiva invece, è innegabile la somiglianza tra i due dispositivi. L’offensiva del più grande produttore al mondo di PC nei confronti del riferimento per antonomasia in ambito tablet passa dunque per una realizzazione...

ShellWin, Hide The Windows 7 Taskbar

ShellWin, Hide The Windows 7 Taskbar

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); In previous versions of Windows, it was possible to minimize the Windows taskbar to free up some additional space on the desktop for Windows. If you try that in Windows 7, you will notice that it is not working. There does not seem to be a way to minimize the taskbar in the operating system, which some users may miss, especially if they have used the feature in previous operating systems. Enter ShellWin, a third party software...

Work Smart Video: The Pitfall of Productivity Porn

The perennial question we always got from obsessive Lifehacker readers: How do you actually be more productive if you spend all your time looking for new ways to get stuff done? In this week’s episode of Work Smart 2, I got to give my best answer to that question. Bill Clark asks how you can actually work smarter when you spend a lot of time learning new productivity tricks. I share my favorite tool for keeping yourself honest, and then asked author of productivity bible Getting...

Firefox 4 Development Update

Firefox 4 Development Update

If you are not a Mozilla developer, or a user who follows the development very closely, you may have been overwhelmed with the addition, removal and change of features in the browser during development. To end this confusion, I have decided to compile a list of the most recent updates that the developer’s have integrated into the Firefox nightly builds. The latest official beta release is Firefox 4 Beta 6 which has been released a few days ago. From there, several features have been...

Windows DLL Hijack Vulnerability Affects Exe Files As Well

Windows DLL Hijack Vulnerability Affects Exe Files As Well

The recently discovered DLL hijack vulnerability in Windows appears to be more critical than thought. Up until now it was confirmed that Windows would load dlls from the current working directory if they cannot be found in directories with a higher search priority. This in turn meant that attackers had to use a dll unknown on the system to exploit the vulnerability. Users who want a confirmed list of Windows programs that are affected by the DLL vulnerability can visit Secunia for that....

Save Game Backup, Easily Backup Game Saves

Save Game Backup, Easily Backup Game Saves

A corrupt, deleted or overwritten save game may frustrate a player that much, that it’s game over for that game, literally. I have experienced my share of games who corrupted save games (often shortly after release, fixed with patches) either because of a bad design, bugs or the fact that patches would render save games from previous game versions incompatible. The motivation to start the game anew usually went down the drain after this, and the consequence was a half-finished game...

KDE 4.5 Window tiling

KDE 4.5 Window tiling

You’ve probably seen the advertisements for Windows 7 and the tiling windows feature. Believe it or not the very first tiling window manager was Siemens’s RTL (created in 1988). After that came a UNIX version called tAP (The Andrew Project) for the X Windowing System. Fast-forward to now and Microsoft claims to have innovated a new feature. Soon after that KDE refines the same feature and ads it into 4.4. Of course 4.4 was still suffering from numerous bugs. Fast-forward a...

Change The Maximize Window Size

Change The Maximize Window Size

A maximized window takes over all the space on the computer desktop with the exception of the space occupied by the taskbar. That’s usually the intended usage and many users are happy with the way it works. Some users however, especially those that run monitors with large resolutions, and those who want to keep an area on the desktop visible all the time, may want to change the default behavior. The free software MaxMax can do that. It was originally developed to exclude the part...

Backup your Linux desktop with Simple Backup

Backup your Linux desktop with Simple Backup

There are tons of possible backup solutions for the Linux desktop (and/or server). I have covered a number of possible solutions here on Ghacks. One of my favorite (and the one I use most often) is Luckybackup (see my article “Luckybackup: Linux backup made easy“), but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of really good solutions. One of these solutions (and one that really lives up to its name) is Simple Backup (or sbackup). This backup tool offers very similar...

Hilary Mason: How to Replace Yourself with a Very Small Shell Script

Hilary Mason: How to Replace Yourself with a Very Small Shell Script

Just stumbled upon a YouTube clip of one of the best Ignite presentations I’ve seen, by Hilary Mason, a computer scientist at Bit.ly. Mason wrote a series of scripts that auto-respond to email with particular content, and auto-nag folks she’s emailed but hasn’t gotten a response from yet. Hit the play button to hear more. She says once the code’s fit for sharing she’ll put it up on GitHub. Cannot wait. Continua a leggere – Original Link: Hilary Mason:...
