Should you use Excel or Google Sheets? Let's put them head-to-head: http://muo.fm/1cfo1Ni
The desktop version of Excel has long been the king of the hill when it comes to spreadsheet apps, but Google is making a challenge for the title with Sheets, the spreadsheet tool included in Google Apps. Does it have a viable claim to the throne? Or is it a hollow imitation of Excel? Both…

These humanoid robots are a little creepy. http://muo.fm/1HHr5gG
Robots are big business, these days. Robots build our cars, clean our carpets, and are going to be driving us around pretty soon. Some robots are even starting to move, look, and speak like people. Unfortunately, as with any cutting edge venture, sometimes you fly a little too close to the sun. Today we're going…

Seriously, if there anything your Android device CAN'T do? http://muo.fm/1Ho6RWG
It's that time again. You just hopped out of bed. You've brushed your teeth. You've peed. Now it's time to do something about that five o'clock shadow. Were you ever taught how to do the deed, or have you made do on your own? Do you feel confident in your technique? If not, go back into the bedroom and…

Spotify is making some big changes. Really big changes! http://muo.fm/1PBh9ML
Spotify is no longer just a music streaming service. At a mega event in New York, Spotify has launched a bunch of new features, including video streaming and original content, in a bid to become an entertainment hub for its users.

That said, that there are many things you can do using the phone you already have. Here are five ways you can use your phone to stay healthy and active. 1) Stay…

People ask Google some strange things... http://muo.fm/1GyOmCN
Google is your nonjudgemental, faceless friend who finds you porn and tells you when you need to go to the hospital. Google is the only way most of us can cope with the small crises of adulthood: injuries, household repairs, and our kids' homework assignments. When Google goes down, even momentarily, it shakes the world…

Facebook doesn't seem to be a far of the open web. http://muo.fm/1cdPHSO

One of the most beloved computer games of all time has turned 25! http://muo.fm/1IQ4kdv
If I was to ask you to think of a timeless computer game, what immediately springs to mind? Perhaps the ultra-violent Doom, or Age of Empires, or even Tomb Raider? How about Microsoft Solitaire? Solitaire - the preserve of procrastinating office workers and bored housewives - is celebrating its 25th anniversary, and Microsoft is commemorating it…
