Struggling to find the time you need? Problem, meet solution: http://muo.fm/1J9UJwI

Use SnapChat intelligently. Don't be a victim of a leak. http://muo.fm/1Bs4pw6
Snapchat is one of the most popular social media services right now, with users sharing more photos on the platform than both Facebook and Instagram. Because it has reached such a massive scale, it's more important than ever for users to be mindful of security while using the self-destructing photo app. The "Snappening" — 200,000 Images Leaked…

Smartphones are going to be so much better in just a few years. http://muo.fm/1J7uKpK
Smartphones have advanced at a phenomenal rate since the original iPhone announcement. Resolutions are skyrocketing, processing power is growing rapidly. However, as the technology has advanced, it seems like the uses themselves have stagnated -- we still use our smartphones almost exactly the same ways we did back in 2007. There is, however, some technology on…

Seems like everyone has a dashcam now. http://muo.fm/1SDldv0
There was a time when not a soul was recording the view from their dashboard. Sounds crazy, with dashcams being so prevalent now, but it's true. In some countries, almost everyone has a camera mounted to their dashboard, and in other places, the popularity is growing at an absurd rate. How did dashcams become so…

Uh oh.
Users of online dating site Adult FriendFinder – and the various alternative sites in its network – have been left with concerns after it emerged that the database of almost 4 million records has been hacked and leaked. AdultFriendFinder: A Social Network for Sex Unfamiliar with Adult FriendFinder? It's essentially a dating website (a phenomenon…

Don't buy games from the Mac App Store. http://muo.fm/1J2uiKT
The Mac App Store doesn't hold a candle to the same store used by iPhone and iPad users to guzzle apps, games and in-app purchases. On a Mac, you're not limited to one store, and if you're into gaming you should take full advantage of that privilege. Despite being a relatively consumer-friendly way of discovering and installing…

Does using a tri-band router actually make a difference? http://muo.fm/1HVcUVr
When it comes to home networking questions, what we're really looking for are two things: faster speeds and better reliability. Any router that improves on one - or both - of these things takes a prominent position as the next best thing. But is it? Several new(ish) high-priced routers are starting to make their rounds…

It's all about first impressions! http://muo.fm/1dAaRfA
Being single and ready to mingle can be tough. That's why online dating is so prevalent, what with how convenient and fast it is. But if you really want fast, then you probably won't find a better platform than Tinder. The problem with online dating sites — depending on how you look at it —…

Change the way you learn and teach others using just your browser. It really is that easy. http://muo.fm/1J7uy9W
A device that beat the iPad at the mobility game? Sounds impossible. Yet Chromebooks overtook iPads to become the bestselling educational device in the U.S market. Some of the pie can be credited to Google's push with education. That push has turned into a street brawl as Apple, Windows, and Google try to capture young minds.…

And yet, not one of those apps is secure and safe enough to have on my phone.  Go figure.

Looking for something fun to build yourself? Check this out! http://muo.fm/1LKH9Qf
We love the RetroPie project here at MakeUseOf, and with the launch of the Raspberry Pi 2, it's even more powerful than ever – able to emulate up to Playstation 1 and N64 games with ease. For an authentic gaming experience, you'll want some real buttons and an arcade cabinet. Most RetroPie cabinet builds either use…

Mad Max is here! But should you go see it? http://muo.fm/1J5Qy58
A full 30 years after the release of Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, George Miller revisits post-apocalyptic Australia with Mad Max: Fury Road, a reboot which sees Tom Hardy replace Mel Gibson. Fury Road isn't a direct sequel to Thunderdome, instead it takes place at an unspecified time earlier in the series' chronology. In the film,…

The movie was Excellent, a true continuation of the Mad Max story.  It was everything Thunderdome should have been and wasn't.  This was the Epic restart the Road Warrior deserves, and I hope that Tom Hardy and George Miller create more.
