Ho Ho Ho! Christmas is here. I absolutely love this festive season for ONE reason, among others, – presents. This is the one time of the year where you can indulge in a mindless shopping spree, without worrying too much about the budget (that part comes later).
But sadly it also means crowded streets which I’m strictly allergic to. To that end, I prefer to take things online. If you’re anything like me, read on. This guide is for you.
By the time you read this, Windows 8 will have been made available for your general consumption, and pleasure. But, as will be the case with most of us who have been wanting to upgrade, but are fearful of the new ModernUI, how much of a shock will it be to all you future users, when you find yourselves amidst the strange waters of the Modern UI?
Well, I’ve been a guinea-pig of sorts, subjecting myself to the the likes of Windows 8 as my primary operating system for quite a while now.
Have you been staring at the same drab wallpaper for weeks? Are you starving for some new wallpapers and backgrounds. Do you need something to spruce up your iPad and show off the gorgeous screen? Look no further.

The folks at Humble Bundle continue to ship the finest game bundles the ‘net has ever seen, and this week, their third Android bundle is on sell. Even if you’re a dedicated Apple customer who would never dream of owning an Android device, this Humble Bundle includes copies of each game for OS X, Windows, and Linux in addition to Android.
Our friends over at Android.AppStorm have written in-depth reviews of each game in this Android Humble Bundle. If you’re a Windows user that also uses an Android phone or tablet, now’s the time to check out the reviews and see which of the games you’d love to get for your device. Or, if you’re just looking for some new games for your Windows, you can check out the reviews to see what the games are all about before downloading to play on your MacBook!
The third Android Humble Bundle is only available for a little over a day longer, so if you’re looking for a cheap way to pick up Fieldrunners, Spirits, SpaceChem, Osmos, and more, be sure to grab a copy before it’s over! It’s a great way to get some great games and support indie devs, ones that support Windows gaming at that!
