Hulu Video Downloader Saves Your Favorite Shows for Offline Enjoyment [Downloads]

Hulu Video Downloader Saves Your Favorite Shows for Offline Enjoyment [Downloads]

Windows only: Hulu Video Downloader is a free application that saves Hulu videos to your desktop and converts them to virtually any popular, device-friendly format you might want—at least in theory.

Battle of the Desktop Note-Taking Apps: OneNote vs. Evernote [Lifehacker Faceoff]

Whenever we mention desktop note-taking applications, two apps always stand out among the competition: Microsoft OneNote and Evernote. One is a commercial Windows app; the other is a free application for Windows, OS X, and many mobile phones. So which is better?

Build Your Own Spider Catcher [DIY]

Build Your Own Spider Catcher [DIY]

Odds are that right now, at least one spider is sharing your home with you. And while we appreciate their insect reduction skills, we’d still prefer they stay outdoors. The DIY spider catcher can help get them there safely. To build one, you’ll need a rod or piece of PVC pipe, some superglue, a piece of string, a paper clip, and—perhaps the most elusive requirement of the bunch—an empty cassette tape case that can open and close easily. To avoid harming the spider,...

Undo Closed Window Coming in Firefox 3.5 [Beta Beat]

Undo Closed Window Coming in Firefox 3.5 [Beta Beat]

One of our favorite features of Firefox (and Chrome) is the undo closed tab option, a feature that resurrects an accidentally closed tab via your History menu or keyboard shortcut (Ctrl+Shift+t [Windows] or Cmd+Shift+t [Mac]); if you accidentally closed a whole window, on the other hand, you were out of luck. According to Mozilla Links, however, the nightly builds of Firefox 3.5 Beta 4 (which will most likely drop sometime this week) include a new Recently Closed Windows entry in the History...
