As a college student, are you in need of some good Instagram accounts to follow? I list 8 good ones to consider.
When used correctly, any social network can become a great educational asset rather than an unintelligent distraction. You're on those social networks a lot anyways, so why not make the best of them? But doing that means finding the right people to follow. Depending on your interests, that may be more difficult than it sounds.…

GNOME 3.12 was released somewhat recently, and Linux distributions will be picking up the new version in their next releases. Here's what has changed and why you should upgrade.
Labeled by some as "unintuitive" and "a usability nightmare," GNOME Shell used to be crap. Not anymore. GNOME released version 3.12 of its popular desktop environment recently, and it refines the Gnome Shell concept yet again. It managed to pass the "usable" threshold a few releases ago and hasn't stopped improving since. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n77cwRJUrLg It might take…

Looking for some smaller gaming channels to follow on YouTube? I pick five that are worth subscribing to.
YouTube has some of the best gaming content on the Internet. But not all good content is made by the top channels -- there are plenty of up and coming YouTubers that provide content just as good, but they're simply not as well know. Finding good but lesser-known channels is hard enough, so we did…

Not upgrading your Windows XP system? Here are 8 ways you can still use the hardware so you don't have to trash it.
Microsoft is killing support for Windows XP this coming April. That's less than a month away. If you still have a computer that runs Windows XP, you should seriously consider upgrading the operating system, or finding new uses for the computer's hardware. If you're not upgrading to a newer version of Windows, here are some…

Linux video editors have been improving quite a bit recently -- especially PiTiVi. Want to see what's new? Check out my latest article.
Linux has long lacked a good video editor, but that is no longer a problem. There are a few different video editors available for the operating system, ranging from simple home user editors to highly professional editors. PiTiVi, a video editor that has historically been in the "simple home user" category, has gained several features…

Microsoft killed support for Windows XP yesterday, so it's more important than ever to move over to a supported operating system. If you're thinking about switching to Linux, I recommend several distributions that are best-suited for Windows XP refugees.
Are you a Windows XP user needing to upgrade your operating system? Do you dislike the idea of Windows 8, or are you hesitant to spend any money? For many people, installing a Linux operating system onto their computer is a sufficient and free way to keep your computer running and still get security updates. …

Is Microsoft Office for Mac any different?
Quick answer: Functionally no; visually no but it's bulky. Hopefully the anticipated Office for Mac 2014 will look more like OneNote for Mac.
Did you know that Microsoft Office was released for Mac before Windows PCs? This now-ubiquitous software has been around since 1989, and is still going strong today as one of the most popular choices for an office suite. There have traditionally been both good and bad differences between the Windows and Mac versions, so we…

If you're struggling to determine which media streamer is best for you, my latest article on the topic should help you out.
Media streaming devices are simply awesome. Those little boxes that connect to your TV can add a wealth of entertainment options to your living room. The top three choices -- the Chromecast, the Apple TV, and the Roku 3 -- have been taking over people's living rooms by storm. But which device is best for…
