Scratch 4 Arduino allows novices to build exciting Arduino projects with a visual interface. You should try it! http://muo.fm/1HAf8vE
I'm an Arduino novice. I've used my starter kit for a few simplistic projects with my 12-year-old, but outside of that I haven't ventured further due to my fear of code. Sure, I can knock out some HTML and CSS with the best of them, but when it comes to actual programming, I'm pretty useless. Scratch 4…

Are Intel Core M processors the chip of the future? http://muo.fm/1KdvoAX
The Intel Core M is the most hyped processor in years, and with good reason: it's at the heart of a new revolution in laptops. As with all new processors, performance is key to the hype. Yet for once it's not about raw speed, it's about power and efficiency. With its low power consumption and…

Pinterest is actually a lot more useful than you think it is: http://muo.fm/1OMZyvx
Pinterest seems to be the social network that not enough people take seriously. Lots of people ignore it as a place to just find recipes or projects, and not enough people are using it correctly. It's actually one of the biggest traffic drivers across social media, and anyone (business or individual) who isn't using it is actually…

You'd do well to give Star Wars: The Digital Movie Collection, which is now available on a range of digital platforms, a very wide berth. Here's why. http://muo.fm/1KbAEFj
Star Wars is almost universally beloved by geeks around the world. Sure, it may be more space opera than science fiction, and sure, the Prequel Trilogy may have been so underwhelming as to undo a lot of the good of the Original Trilogy, but Star Wars is still legend. However, that doesn't mean you should…

If you're looking for a new job, look no further than JobSamurai: http://muo.fm/1EvXYyD
Searching for a new job is both stressful and time consuming. Although the dawn of the Internet has made job hunting easier, looking for a new role still requires endless scrolling through job boards, writing untold amounts of covering letters, and a healthy dose of good fortune. In truth, a lot of the jobs you see…

Just because a game is played on a smartphone doesn't mean it can't be beautiful: http://muo.fm/1yYBCU0
Mobile games usually aren't good art.  That's not to say they aren't fun – Flappy Bird and Super Hexagon are entertaining. These games are great at filling in the empty hours of your life. Still, if The Last Of Us is filet mignon, mobile games are cheese balls. They're neither memorable nor particularly moving. As time has gone…

The Internet makes you feel ____ (fill in the blank). http://muo.fm/1zOIqic
Sometimes there's just no word for a particular idea. Shakespeare knew, in those circumstances, to just make one up – which is why we have words like "assassination", "cold blooded" and "swagger" today. English regularly borrows words from other languages, especially when there's no equivalent. For example: the German word "schadenfreude" started popping up a lot…
