In 2010, Metro 2033 redefined the meaning of silence and stillness. From impending action to lurking danger, Metro 2033 bent the perception of silence, darkness and stillness towards evil. Now, in 2013, the sequel to Metro 2033, Metro: Last Light, is in my hands and I feel the same energy in it as in its predecessor.
Metro: Last Light has been looking good in teasers and commercials, but does it actually perform? Well, after playing it thoroughly and patiently, the way this FPS is meant to be played, I can say that it almost hits the spot. Let’s find out how!
If you’ve read my “Apps I Couldn’t Live Without” article you will know that Ginger is one of my favourite applications. Ginger is a free application which quickly grammar checks writing and picks up on any typos or mistakes you may have made.

Recently I came in contact with one of main members of the Ginger team, Dudu Noy. He was kind enough to speak to me about everything from the beginning of Ginger, all the way to what the future holds. Read on to find out more!
GitHub has established itself as the premier place for developers to show off and share their programs. Unfortunately for Windows users, most of its focus has been on Unix and Unix-alike platforms. This is not surprising given that it is based on the Git distributed version control system, written by Linus Torvalds to coordinate development of Linux. The fine folks at GitHub have been remedying this by improving coordination with Windows. This includes providing a free desktop Git client for Windows, the focus of this review.
There is no shortage of music apps available, and many of them are free. I seem to try just about every one I find because, well, I love music and I am always on the hunt for these programs. I use apps to help clean up my library, I use special players, I backup music to Google Music and more.
My latest find is called MP3Jam. It is a simple but surprisingly capable free tool for locating and downloading anything from individual songs to entire albums.
One of the best ways to travel around London is on the Tube Network. By giving you quick access to every part of the city its a transport network many commuters couldn’t live without. However, for newcomers to London the Tube can feel like a complicated arrangement. With different lines and hundreds of stations its not hard to be confused.
When I’m in London the only choice for me is Tube Map. With its extensive detail and navigational features it makes the whole experience far easier. Read on to find out more!
The number of apps available in the Windows Apps Store may not be near to what is available in Apple or Google Play store. But it has apps that can help your make the most out of your Windows Phone 8. Also, the number of apps for Windows Phone 8 are increasing day by day. The devices that are being released running Windows Phone 8 are no doubt good and Microsoft is working hard to make the operating system compete with Android and iOS.
If you are new to Windows Phone 8 and are looking for some useful apps, we have compiled a list of some of the most useful apps that are available in the Windows Apps Store.
If you are anything like me then you have a large computer-based collection of music and that library is, at least partially, a mess. Over the years I have tried countless solutions to fix that mess, but one I have long heard about, but not tried is MediaMonkey. This app does more than just attempt to clean up your library — it also serves as a player, streams to DLNA devices on your network and can sync with mobile devices.
In fact, the app boasts a long list of features — manage media, identify tracks, tag, organize and rename, automatic library updates, download music and podcasts, sync and backup with mobile devices, record and convert, burn, play and stream to devices.
In recent weeks, more and more details have been emerging in relation to Microsoft’s first major Windows 8 update known as Windows Blue. Though, with the recent influx of rumors, many are beginning to wonder what Microsoft might include inside of the next edition of the Windows family, Windows 9. The release of Windows 9 will be a critical milestone for Microsoft as they try to improve upon the negative public perception they received following the release of Windows 8.
While no operating system will ever be perfect, Windows 9 has the potential to be a very solid, competitive OS. However, there are a few specific changes that I believe should be implemented into Windows 9 if Microsoft is to win back the customers that they lost last October.
About two months ago I made a major change in my living room. For several years I had used a home theater computer (HTPC) to access all of our ripped DVD’s, music and digital photos. I did not use Windows Media Center for its primary focus, which is watching and recording live TV, so when the PC aged and began to slow down I decided to replace it with a cheaper alternative.
Instead of building a new HTPC I opted for a Google TV box. I got the same functionality I had been using Windows Media Center for thanks to the Plex server and app. However, many of our discs had been ripped as ISO files — a format that Google TV, even using Flex, can not handle. I needed to convert the files and options included MKV, MP4 and AVI. All would work, but I opted for MKV.
If you have a large collection of digital music, and it’s in a bit of a mess, don’t worry! TuneUp may just be what you are looking for. Using advanced matching algorithms, it will identify your mislabelled tracks and fill in complete details for you, including cover art. It works in conjunction with iTunes and Windows Media Player, and works brilliantly with the iTunes match subscription service. But there’s no need to be tied to either, as you can take your correctly named and covered collection elsewhere.
This article will focus on iTunes integration, so what are you waiting for? Dive in to see if TuneUp matches your needs.
