Wifi Browser Login makes 'browser login' hotel wireless connections easier on Android

Getting hooked up to your hotel's 'browser login' wireless signal is easy enough if you're on a laptop, but connecting with a smartphone when you want to save mobile data dollars can be a bit trickier. For Android users, a free app called Wifi Browser Login (WBL) makes the process a little bit smoother. Once installed, just jump into the WBL settings and set your preferred options. To connect,...

For starters, Clementine now offers Jamendo and Icecast on its Internet listening tab. With thousands of Icecast streams to choose from and Jamendo's massive catalog of music (which is available everywhere in the...

GooReader updates to version 2.0, now a sexier way to read Google Books

We showed you GooReader back in August, and it was already a very slick way to read Google Books titles on your Windows desktop. It's now been updated to version 2.0, and GooReader is looking good and more functional than ever before. In addition to getting a bit of a facelift, GooReader 2.0 lets you highlight blocks of text or draw little notes on a page. There's no text tool this time around,...

Two quick ways to read library e-books on your iPhone or iPad with Bluefire

The Bluefire e-reader for iPhone made a big splash last week because it's a free app that can read DRM-protected e-books, like the ones offered by many public libraries. We've reviewed Bluefire and shown you how to get borrowed e-books onto your iPhone, but there are two better and faster ways to accomplish this, without opening Adobe Digital Editions on your computer or syncing with iTunes....

ComicRack, eComic reader and library management

First, let me disclaim that I do not read comics, nor manga, and I'm not a huge fan of anime. In fact, the only drawn-art medium that I really like is hentai. But enough about me! Today I've had the pleasure of using ComicRack, an eComics reader and manager. I don't have anything to compare it to, but according to my friends it's the best comic reader out there. I can't really tell you if...

Windows DLL exploit could cause problems, and there's no immediate fix available

It seems an old, well-known Windows DLL issue might soon find its way into a virus near you! I wouldn't worry too much though. As I said, it's a very old issue that hasn't been fixed in a long time. Basically, DLL files are libraries of functions. Most programs load a bunch of DLLs when they start-up, and if you can infect those DLLs -- or replace them with malicious counterparts -- then you...

Clementine is an attractively simple music player and organizer

I only ever used iTunes once, just after I bought my second-generation iPod. I still remember the day that Apple ported iTunes to Windows. The world was giddy with excitement -- and, as I plugged in that FireWire cable... I admit, I was giddy too. Christ was that excitement short lived though. iTunes was a steaming hunk of bloated slowness. It might be better today, but truth be told I haven't...

TuneUp brings its music library cleanup skills to Windows Media Player

One day, the big, popular media apps like iTunes and Windows Media Player will include really good library clean-up abilities out of the box. Until then, we're going to have to rely on third party programs to take care of the dirty work for us. If you've got a massive library with loads of missing cover art and crappy track data, TuneUp may be the tool for you. The company's iTunes companion...

Stanford signs Google Book Search agreement and brings millions of old and out-of-print books to our fingertips

Back in 2008 Google secured a landmark settlement with authors and publishers in the U.S. Both The Authors Guild and the Association of American Publishers agreed to the deal, opening up a truly vast number of books and periodicals and other written materials. The settlement received a lot of flak from authors, and Google paid $125 million to resolve a lot of claims made by troubled writers. ...

Free tool makes managing your Windows 7 library settings easier

Windows 7's built-in libraries are a great way to organize information on your system. Windows 7's libraries provide a powerful addition to Explorer. They simplify file sharing, speed browsing and searching, and improve organization. Libraries are also a fantastic way to group related content regardless of where it's stored - especially if you suck at maintaining a logical folder setup like me. ...

Five free ways to grow your most important organ

Here's a question for all our elderly readers: Do any of you remember the primitive era affectionately called 1995, and hearing your college professors speak hopefully (or possibly lament) that soon all the information and media ever created would be up on this web thing and easily accessible and available free of charge? Do you remember how many people went out and bought those state of the art...

The Kids Open Dictionary Builder: Do they define better than they punctuate?

Lower your geek radar detector. You got me. I am a tech blogger. I also have a degree in library science. Guilty as charged, just put me on a cell block with wireless and a supply of graphic novels. I am a librarian who is really okay with wikis. Would I accept every entry in one as gospel? No, but questioning is good in print, too. I believe wikis are, by and large, a decent starting point for...

Keeping it private (and safe!) on public computers

Even if you have a computer at home, on occasion you'll find you need to use the public computers at a library, internet café, or your local copy shop. Traveling, technical glitches at home, or the sheer convenience of checking on something right now brings almost everyone to a public computer once in a while. It brings a few people -- whether they own computers or not -- to public...
