Calcmoolator is a handy online calculator collection

Calcmoolator is a very neat collection of task-specific calculators, with a cute bovine mascot. The site provides an enormous number of calculators, like "Auto Lease vs. Buy", "Tip Calculator" (shown above), "Canadian Mortage", and even "Cost of a Baby" (a weird one, but it must come in handy for some people). The site looks very clean. Once you enter all of the variables and hit Calculate you...

DLS Presents: URLauncher keyboard launcher for Windows (open-source)

Before Windows 7 came out, I used to love Launchy. I'm a keyboard-centric kind of guy, and a keyboard launcher fits in perfectly with my workflow. Launchy wasn't the only app I tried; I think I went through just about every major keyboard launcher for Windows and quite a few minor ones as well (including several AutoHotkey scripts). And then Windows 7 came out, with its shiny new Start menu. No...

Windows tip: Use the built-in calculator for date calculations

When I wrote about the TimeAndDate Birthday Calculator, commenter Kevyn was quick to note that you can do "pretty much the same job" using Windows 7's built-in calculator. That statement may be a bit of a stretch, since Windows' calculator does not compute differences in hours, minutes or seconds. But still, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that it can quickly and painlessly calculate the...

TimeAndDate Birthday Calculator helps you figure out when is your next "alternative birthday"

They say birthdays only come around once every year; I say they're wrong! And I have the TimeAndDate Birthday Calculator on my side. For example, does it count as a birthday when I am exactly 1,5000,000,000 seconds old? Well, you could claim that you don't know the exact second of your birth, but some people know the hour. So, how about being exactly 100,000 hours old? For the rest of us, there...

This one goes out to all the ladies: calculate the start-date of your period for the next 12 months!

OK Seb, careful now. Avoid the euphemisms. Speak frankly, without bias. You can do it... Ladies! Girls! Husbands or significant others of girls and ladies! Thanks to the work of plucky teenager Tina Marsh, you can now calculate the starting date of your period for the next twelve months. Just plug in the date of your last period, your usual cycle length and click 'calculate'. Voilá -- a...

Wolfram Alpha iPhone app drops from $50 to $1.99, gets iPad version

When Wolfram Alpha first launched its iPhone app, the powerful features were overshadowed by the massive price. $50 for an iPhone app?! Wolfram Alpha is like having a graphing calculator, plus a lot of other useful data, in your pocket, so the $50 price could have been seen as justified ... but not in a market where the majority of apps go for 1 or 2 dollars. Wolfram has reversed direction and...

Use an iPhone or iPod touch as a cordless numeric keypad on your Windows PC

Does your laptop sport a full-width keyboard but you wish it had a numeric keypad? For those who crunch a lot of numbers, Sure, you can pick up a USB keypad pretty cheaply, but why lug around one more piece of plastic and PCB if you don't have to? If you're already toting an iPhone or iPod touch, Balmuda Designs' free NumberKey app is up to the task. Install the server on your notebook or...

Stimator - "real" website value estimator

$timator is a site that purports to estimate the true monetary value of your website. Simply enter a URL, and $timator goes to work, analyzing things like search engine placings, back-links, and site structure to come up with an ultimate dollar value. When I tried it for my 5 year-old personal blog, it came up with a relatively modest $1979, which to be honest feels a little generous (but I'll...

Windows 7 comes with an updated, oh-so-pretty calculator

There've been numerous reports over the weekend that Microsoft has released another test build of Windows 7, the successor to Windows Vista. While I tend to take leaked screenshots with a grain of salt, I'm a sucker for video - even if it doesn't show that much. So today I bring you a video of the integrated calculator that may ship with Windows 7. For the most part, if the leaks are to be...

eCalc offers new Windows desktop version

Last month we told you about the new web calculator eCalc. Now you can not only use the calculator on the web, but also on yourWindows desktop. The download and install is extremely fast and simple - I had my calculator up an running in under 90 seconds. The calculator can be used by clicking numbers and functions with a mouse or using them on your keyboard. The only thing I found that threw me...

1 + 1 = 4? Wait....Ecalc please

Some of us aren't good with numbers. The whole addition, subtraction, division, it's just not our forte. Sure Windows and Macs have built in calculators but we're web people so we need something on the web to make us not feel like we're totally mathstupid. Ecalc to the rescue. It's not just any calculator though. It's pretty and webified. They also have a scientific calculator for those who are...

Calq: quick calculator access for Mac or Windows

Calq is a free, lightweight, shortcut-key accessible calculator for both Mac OS X 10.4+ and Windows 2000/XP. The idea is to give you quick access to math functions without launching another program just to do simple calculations. Calq can run in your Mac menubar or Windows tray, but you can just have the program run in the background with no icons. You can select a hotkey to launch the calculator,...

How to surf the web even if Internet Explorer is disabled

Ever find yourself sitting in front of a computer that's been locked down by an overzealous IT administrator who won't let you install any software or even open Internet Explorer or Firefox? If that PC is running Windows XP, there's a good chance you can still visit Download Squad (or other sites if that sort of thing appeals to you). All you have to do is launch a Windows application like...

Calculate what a waste of time your next meeting is with Meeting Miser

Time is money. And every time you have to sit down with your boss, coworkers, and some random consultant thinking what a big waste of time this meeting is, you could also argue that it's a waste of money. Meeting Miser helps you figure out just how much money. The little web app works by pulling in average salaries for various job types and determining what their time is worth. So next time you...

Peepel Online Office Suite

Could this online office suite steal people away from the popular Google and Zoho? It seems far from likely that Peepel will ever take market share away from the online office application space. However, they might look a little amateur, but a lot of development work has gong under the Peepel hood, showing how serious people are indeed trying to get into this space. Peepel has just announced...
