Microsoft made some bold changes to Windows with its latest release. The latest version of the operating system had garnered a lot of attention and emotions from users tend to run on both the love and hate side with very few middle-of-the-road feelings. But Microsoft is always careful about a couple of things — one is backwards compatibility and the other is user customization.

Windows 8, in those ways, is no different from its predecessors. Programs that ran under Windows 7, Vista and even XP will, for the most part, run in Windows 8. Users can also make the operating system look the way they want, just as they have been able to do in the past. Things that can not be changed under the native OS can be handled by the plethora of -third-party apps that have been pouring into the market.

Digital distribution of games has proven itself. There’s Impulse and GamersGate.

Of course Steam, by Valve, is the 800-lb gorilla in this space, but those with a taste outside the mainstream should take a look at Desura.

I love calendars. And when I say I love calendars, I mean I LOVE them. If there is a calendar app for a platform I use, I have used that app. One of my favorite calendar programs happens to be a desktop app for Windows called VueMinder. I used the free trial last fall and quickly fell in love with VueMinder and bought a Pro license.

VueMinder boasts itself as “the best calendar program for Windows” and I tend to agree. Let’s find out what sets VueMinder apart from other calendar apps.

Any tool that aims to help to you to keep track of things you need to get done has to walk a fine line between offering the options needed to be flexible and versatile, but be simple enough to remain easy to use and uncluttered in appearance.

Todo is an aptly named app for Windows 8 that enables you to work in full screen mode for data entry or browsing tasks, but also includes a neat snapped  mode that enables you to keep your todo list on display at all times.

Many of us have more than one computer and despite how easy it is to multi-task in Windows, there are times when it is easier to use two computers at the same time – particularly if you have a desktop and a laptop.

But this means having to battle with a lot of peripherals – two keyboards and two mice for starters. Synergy is a great free tool that enables you to reduce desk clutter by using a single mouse and keyboard to control two computers.

I’ve been using Bvckup beta for well over a year now and it’s about time it received some recognition for reliably sorting out my backups without ever getting in the way. I mean, what more could you want from a backup utility? That it is fast maybe? Check. Perhaps that it is minimal and easy to set up? Check. Maybe that it does not use a proprietary file format for backups? Yep, got that too.

Bvckup differs from other backup applications, It makes sure that whichever folder you choose to back up is always exactly duplicated to the folder that you are backing up to. Ok, no big deal you say. Well what about if we throw in a Delta copying algorithm that makes backups super fast? And how about real-time folder monitoring, scheduled backups and manual backups all in one app?

Read on to find out more about this cool little application. (more…)

I loved creating collages when I was a kid. I tried making one now and apparently I’m not very good at them now and physically ruined the original photos whilst making a collage. Shucks! In this digital age, making a real collage is time consuming and how would you brag about them to your friends? This is where Phototastic comes in handy.

Unlike other photography related apps, Phototastic focuses mainly on making impressive collages rather than addinging effects on the images. Well, you can do that too as there are innumerable options in this app. Let’s take a look!

Major Game Releases of 2013 (Part I)

For those who find respite in PC games, this year will bring comfort in the familiar. All the releases that have been confirmed for 2013 are either sequels to long-running series, or a reboot of classics.

The age of PC exclusives has been fading since the last few years, and this year’s releases has just StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm, and SimCity from this category. Having said that, there are enough big releases across genres, to whet anyone’s appetite for PC gaming.
