    Recently we started a firestorm by telling the world how the Windows 8 app store was completely full of scam applications, and Microsoft has officially responded by removing 1500 applications and pledging to keep it clean. As part of their new application certification requirements, which according to their announcement were actually put into place in June, they are going to be enforcing the following changes: Application Name needs to clearly identify the functionality of the application Category needs to match the actual application function Icons must be unique instead of allowing...

    The 64-bit builds of Chrome have slowly but surely been working their way through Google’s release channel system, and this week, they have finally landed in the stable channel! Overall, things are looking good with the latest release, but there is an issue that you need to keep in mind concerning the new stable 64-bit build. 32-bit NPAPI plugins are currently not supported: From the blog post: Currently, the only significant known issue is the lack of 32-bit NPAPI plugin support. The 32-bit channel will remain fully supported for the foreseeable future and we will continue to support...

    Hide your Mac's menu bar with Menu Eclipse

    in Computers
    Matt Elliott/CNET I think I speak for the majority of Internet-connected computer users when I say that I'm easily distracted. I'm primarily a Mac user, and my MacBook's menu bar features an ever increasing number of icons that are useful at various points of the day but not all of the time. Plus, I don't need to check the time or my remaining battery percentage every two minutes. With Menu Eclipse 2, you can black out or dim the menu bar. The app doesn't let you remove the menu bar entirely to gain a smidge more screen real estate, but it lets you...

    How to test out the latest Chrome OS features

    in Computers
    Jason Cipriani/CNET Google is known for offering up products to the masses under the "beta" label. For years Gmail was a beta product (it might still be for all we know), and the likes of Google Glass is currently in beta. With Chrome OS, however, Google allows users to make the choice of whether or not to run a beta version of the operating system. There are three different channels, as Google calls them, which a Chrome OS user can opt into, each following a different update schedule and offering different features. The Stable channel is the...

    In recent weeks, our team had the rather demanding task of designing ten email templates in time for the launch of Canvas, a new and easy-to-use email newsletter builder in Campaign Monitor.* On top of the regular requirements which come with building templates for an email marketing service that designers use (for example, that campaigns look good, even on mobile devices!) there were a couple of extra things we needed to address. First and foremost, there was working collaboratively with design, testing and of course, amongst email coders to make this project happen. As it turns out,...

    What factors go into determining how many Twitter followers you gain (and lose) each day? I was driven in part by Rand Fishkin's recent "mad scientist" experimentation that he touched on at MozCon. There, he noted that his tweets with images resulted in significant follower losses. Do they? And what other behaviors result in more (or fewer) followers? I've found some interesting gems. Of course, it's worth noting that aggregate, general trends don't necessarily speak*to your specific situation. In fact, as you'll see, they're often exactly the*opposite! To that end, I want you to play...

    Windows jeromemasson — 2014-08-20T06:58:36-04:00 — #1 Today at work, I wanted to know how to create in Windows 7 a simple icon/shortcut to play a sound on the background, without having any media player opening (in my case, I wanted to play a rimshot sound whenever a colleague would say a relatively bad joke). I searched for a long time on the web, but I wasn't able to find a simple solution to do this (I found a large amount of webpages helping users to remove ads sounds running on the background, but nothing that really served my purpose). I then found a post from Aug 11, 2008...

    Lightweight camera accessories

    in Computers
    When it comes to portable tripods, Joby's GorillaPod is probably the biggest name in the game. There are several varieties of flexible tripods available, with the model shown above suitable for dSLRs up to 3kg/6.6lbs. Wrap the legs around an object to create a firm grip. Then, position the camera any which way you like to film in places an ordinary tripod can't. The GorillaPod SLR Zoom weighs just 190 grams/6.7 oz, so it won't weigh down your camera bag. The quick release plate also has a level built-in, and comes with a standard 1/4-inch screw attachment. You can also get a separate ball...

    Screenshot by Rick Broida/CNET I think one reason people get so fed up with Facebook is that their feeds get so cluttered with junk, they rarely see the things they actually care about -- you know, baby pictures, ice-bucket videos, and friendship-threatening political comments. That clutter is usually the result of excessive "liking," which I'm guilty of myself because very often you have to "like" a company or product in order to enter a contest. (Even worse, I never win. Unlike!) Of course, because Facebook's settings are built to confuse, it's not...

    Get started with Instagram's Hyperlapse app

    in Computers
    Jason Cipriani/CNET Creating a time-lapse video using your iOS device just got a lot easier (without the help of iOS 8, mind you). On Tuesday, Instagram released a stand-alone app called Hyperlapse. The app is currently only available for iOS devices; sorry Android users, you'll need to wait until Google makes some API changes to the gyroscope and camera, according to Wired. Upon launching the app for the first time you're walked through some example time-lapse videos, and then asked to grant permission for the app to access your Camera and...

    Hybrid hard drives promise some of the performance of a solid-state drive with the capacity of a mechanical drive. They’re bigger than an SSD and faster than a plain-old mechanical drive. These are sometimes called “SSHDs” — solid-state hybrid drives. The drive automatically caches data in the solid-state storage for you, offering faster speeds for the files you use most. Mechanical Drives and SSDs Both Have Their AdvantagesSolid-state drives are much faster than mechanical drives. Prices have come way down, so you should definitely look at upgrading to an SSD. But even these now-cheaper...

    Getting started with iPhone camera app Camu

    Matt Elliott/CNET A new, free photo app has entered the crowded iPhone photo app arena. Camu doesn't break any new ground, but the app boasts a slick interface and a small yet useful collection of filters and tools. Camu forces you to snap photos with the app and doesn't let you edit photos from your phone's camera roll. It saves the photos you take with the app to your camera roll, but Camu's photo library features only photos taken with the app. Oddly and inconveniently, you can't delete photos from within the app but must go to your camera roll to...
