Star Wars!!!!! http://muo.fm/1JQZIkD
J.J. Abrams has proven to be very talented in running a tight ship (possibly a Star Destroyer) when it comes to the Star Wars set. Other than the first teaser trailer and some leaked concept art, we haven't had a whole lot to go on when speculating about the upcoming film. However, that has all…

Are we, as a society, significantly more productive? And if we are, are we happier? Productivity is important, but it needs to be put in its place. http://muo.fm/1JNrTAU

Make OS X your own with some cool custom icons: http://muo.fm/1GV3iMr
Tired of the way your Mac looks like everyone else's? Brighten things up by installing your own custom icons for favorite software and system components. The hardest part of this tweak is deciding which replacement icons you want to use. Reverting back to defaults couldn't be simpler, so you don't even have to worry about messing things up.…

Mortal Kombat X is here for console and PC, but should you run out and buy it? http://muo.fm/1OnsMkk
NetherRealm Studios' latest entry in the Mortal Kombat series was one of the most highly anticipated releases of 2015—we haven't seen a new MK game since 2011, and we've been excitedly waiting for a great storyline, new characters, interactive levels, brutal new fatalities, and a host of other things.

There's nothing wrong with letting your kids use your smartphone, but you need to make sure to keep them safe when they do: http://muo.fm/1FQSysW

School + OneNote = A winning combination: http://muo.fm/1FQPhJY
It makes it easier to think during class—and I'm doing less busy work. Stephanie is just one of the 950 students at Sammamish High School in Seattle who have taken wholeheartedly to Microsoft OneNote along with their teachers. Across the country in Ohio, teachers gave their students "blizzard bags" when schools got closed for bad weather. These…

I'm always fascinated to see how computers are used in school these days since we didn't really have them when I was in school. i mean we did, but you had to go to a special room to use it and there was no internet or anything.

Attention Linux Ubuntu users: this is going to make your multiple display life easier: http://muo.fm/1ENcel2
Using Linux wisely can make you just as productive as other operating systems, but adding displays to your setup can provide further benefits. You can be even more productive while working, or you can be immersed in virtual worlds while gaming.

There's a vulnerability that affects every version of Windows. What can you do about it? http://muo.fm/1JN6Puw
What would you say if we told you that your version of Windows is affected by a vulnerability that dates back to 1997? You'd laugh, right? Surely, after all, Microsoft would have patched the fault prior to releasing Windows 98, or at the latest, Windows 2000? Well, not quite. This Redirect to SMB vulnerability has…
