Out There isn't an action game, and you won't take part in big space battles. And no, there's no fire button or twitch-like controls at all. Instead, it's a dark, melancholic sci-fi adventure backed by an equally … Read more
Think of those poor, lonely apps pre-installed on Windows 8 PCs that are destined to remain unopened: Travel, Reminders, Maps, Camera, Notes...Reading List?

Manager can document almost everything about your business, but it requires plenty of setup. You have to constantly update the program with new details, and you can't sync it to any other accounts to make some of your work easy.

This program documents and reports on every aspect of your business, from personnel to cash and orders to schedules. While you can import files from just about any other business software, this program requires you to constantly update it to make sure your … Read more
Firefox's new tab behavior is a bit inconsistent. Right-click on a link and choose Open Link in New Tab and the new tab opens directly to the right of your current tab. In contrast, if you open a new tab, it opens to the right of all of your open tabs.
Firefox add-on Tab Deque changes this behavior. After installing the add-on and restarting Firefox, new tabs will open next to your current tab. This change alone will keep me using Tab Deque, but it boasts another useful feature that makes it easy to toggle between two tabs. If … Read more

I am currently having trouble with my neighbor.
She doesn't like it when I park my car in a public parking spot outside her house. So instead of either explaining her ire or even cajoling me with charm, she placed an intemperate note on the windshield last night, one that was wet by morning.
I don't believe she is related to PayPal CEO David Marcus. However, I found some similarities in the prickly note my neighbor wrote to me (Gist: "The parking space outside my house is mine!") and the one Marcus sent to his San … Read more

Granted, it's not like they're taking up much space in your phone, but every so often you might want to do a little house-cleaning. If nothing else, a streamlined address book will make it easier to find the contacts you do want.
For iOS users, this poses a slight challenge. You can't just swipe to delete a contact they way you do an e-mail. Rather, you have to open the contact, tap Edit, then scroll all the way down and tap … Read more
