Kindlebility sends Web pages from your computer to your Kindle

Kindlebility is a bookmarklet that can send any Web page you're viewing to your Kindle. Kindlebility will format the websites so that viewing them on the Kindle isn't a pain. Once you've set it up (more on that in a moment), Kindlebility only requires one click to use -- and the pages arrive on your Kindle in seconds. Before you use Kindlebility for the first time, you have to quickly set it...

Auslogics Disk Defrag 3.2 gets smarter, faster

Auslogics Disk Defrag has been part of my system maintenance toolkit for quite some time. With the release of version 3.2, it's now even better at tidying up and optimizing your system's hard disk drives. In addition to a cleaner, easier-to-use interface, Disk Defrag 3.2 offers improved single file and folder defragging, better processing of multiple disks, a simplified scheduling screen, and...

Ultrasn0w 1.2.1 carrier unlock now available for jailbroken iPhones running iOS 4.3.1

Anyone who relies on a carrier unlock to use their iPhone on another GSM carrier, can now take the iOS 4.3.1 plunge thanks to ultrasn0w 1.2.1. The iPhone Dev-Team have worked their magic to make ultrasn0w functional once again for the iPhone 4 (GSM), 3GS and 3G, and to correct a signal bar issue for anyone maintaining an older baseband but not using an unlock. It's important to note that this...

SeaMonkey, Mozilla's all-in-one Internet suite, releases new beta

The SeaMonkey Project has released SeaMonkey 2.1 Beta 3, a version that makes a lot of new functionality available to a wide audience for the first time. A lot of stuff has been added and tweaked since SeaMonkey 2.1 Beta 2 hit the streets back in February, and we're now one step closer to the final release of version 2.1 of the integrated Internet app suite. SeaMonkey 2.1 Beta 3 lets you...

Moom for Mac simplifies window moving and zooming

Moom is a Mac utility that aims to simplify the task of moving and sizing windows. Moom can run in three different modes, seen in the image above. The Standard mode will make Moom have a Dock icon as well as menu items in the menu bar. In Menu Bar mode, Moom will only show up in your menu bar, and in the Faceless mode you won't see any sign of its existence at all -- unless you hover over the...

BlueStacks will let you run Android apps on Windows

Ever wanted to run an Android app in Windows? Not Windows Phone, but on your Windows desktop? Well, later this year you'll be able to do just that, thanks to BlueStacks. Here's the interesting bit: thanks to BlueStacks' virtualization magic, you'll be able to run Android apps alongside Windows apps and switch between them just as you would between different Windows apps. Furthermore,...

Google Maps for Android updated to bring Latitude home, keywords to Hotpot ratings

Barely one month after an update that brought Latitude and Hotpot closer than ever, Google's updated Maps for Android again to further sweeten the deal. This time around, Latitude seems to have gotten the most attention, but Places a.k.a. Hotpot hasn't been left entirely out of the mix. For Latitude, Google's added a feature for setting a "home" location, as well as the ability to check into...

Classic Shell now makes Internet Explorer 9 look like IE8

If you used Windows XP for a long time (who didn't?), one of the biggest changes when moving to Windows 7 or Vista was the massively-altered Explorer. While the new Explorer introduces some useful new features, it also removed just as many -- which is where Classic Shell comes in! We've covered Classic Shell before, but here's the crib note: Classic Shell restores almost every Windows...

Untethered iOS 4.3.1 jailbreak is go with redsn0w and PwnageTool for Windows and OS X, minus iPad 2

Jailbreakers, your iOS 4.3.1 time has come -- the iPhone Dev-Team has updated their redsn0w and PwnageTool utilities to enable an untethered jailbreak of the latest and greatest iOS version. Redsn0w 0.9.6rc6 and PwnageTool 4.3 both use an exploit discovered by Stefan Esser, a German security researcher, best know to the jailbreak community as the man behind the antid0te framework, which...

OmmWriter brings its clean, calm writing interface to Windows

I have a thing for full-screen text editing. I use WriteMonkey for my creative writing needs, and VIM in a full-screen PuTTY session for my Web development work. That being the case, I'm all over the monospace, dark-background, focused editing scene. OmmWriter attempts to take that aesthetic and make it somehow more spiritual, with three picturesque backgrounds and ambient background audio...

The update brings stability increases and bug fixes, as well as all the new features from the beta 1 release earlier this month. Adobe has also brought its AIR runtime up to speed with the latest developments in Flash, releasing Adobe AIR 2.7 beta for your downloading pleasure. AIR 2.7 adds support for Adobe...

Hotmail adds IE9 desktop notification support in Windows 7

Microsoft has announced that people who use both Hotmail and Internet Explorer 9 are now able to see a desktop notification of how many messages have arrived since they last checked their Inbox. Unlike Chrome's desktop notifications, these won't be pop-up bubbles. In fact, the pinned Hotmail icon will simply change to display a number next to it -- that shows how many messages have arrived...

Boxcar for Mac now available for beta testing

Boxcar, the push notification application that has a great number of fans on iOS, has just made it to the Mac, though in beta form for now. Essentially, Boxcar allows you to get push notifications for many different services, and lets you organize those messages and deal with them in a less stressful way than, say, the notification system that Apple has built into iOS. About a couple of months...

Fake pirated Walk and Text Android app embarrasses pirates and steals sensitive data

Symantec is reporting that they have detected a malicious Android app doing the rounds on file-sharing sites in the US and Asia. The fake application impersonates a pirated version of an app called Walk and Text, which lets you overlay a keyboard on a live feed from your phone's camera to avoid crashing into things while walking and texting, and is currently available in the Android Market...

RunDroid dual boots Android and Windows Mobile on the HTC HD2

If for some reason your smartphone of choice is the HTC HD2, you'll probably be very happy that RunDroid has been created. Sure, the HD2 has some very capable and high-end hardware under the hood, but on the other hand, it runs Windows Mobile 6.5. Not even Windows Phone 7, but its ancient predecessor. Understandably, people have been hacking Android onto the HD2 for months and months. Up until...
