Pandora Extension for Chrome Gets a New Home

Remember a few months ago when we wrote about that awesome unofficial Pandora extension for Chrome? A lot of people took a liking to it, but Pandora apparently didn't. The developer, Robert Alten, cares about his users enough that not long after the extension was pulled he started a thread asking what he can do.

There are thousands of Internet radio stations out there, but some of you probably can't listen to them as much as you'd like because you don't always have an Internet connection or can't spare the mobile bandwidth. Thanks to an app like RadioSure you can record the online radio stations and take them with you offline.

Change Alt+Tab Thumbnail Size in Windows 7

When Microsoft released Windows Vista they had a lot of great innovations in it despite the constant complaints people had with the OS. One of the best things that came out of Vista is Aero, which is what powers the Flip 3D (Windows Key + Tab), the Taskbar thumbnails, the blurred border around all the windows, the thumbnails used in Alt+Tab, and more.

RidNacs: Free Disk Space Analyzer for Windows

There is no shortage of disk space analyzers available for Windows, and there's no doubt that we've covered our fair share of them. The truth is that these apps can be really useful when you're in a pinch, and I think that's why there are so many floating around. The most recent I heard about was RidNacs, and it left me very impressed.

Best Jailbreak Apps for iPhone and iPad

A few years ago I wrote an article that explained why I found it worth jailbreaking, but at the time there were only a few apps that I found useful. Since that time the jailbreak community has quickly evolved, and has turned into something pretty incredible. Some of the apps we are about to cover have been downloaded millions of times...

Best Wolfram Alpha Chrome Extension

I'm a pretty big fan of both Google Chrome and Wolfram Alpha. When you merge the two some beautiful things start appearing, such as the Chromey Calculator extension that I mentioned last year. It's an excellent way to quickly perform both simple and complex calculations that most normal calculators would never be able to handle...

Priceline Bidding Tips

I've heard of people getting some great deals on hotels around the world thanks to Priceline. The site lets you place a bid for a hotel based on the location, date of travel, number of stars, and a few other factors. The catch is that if you place your bid too low it likely won't be accepted, and you won't be able to place another bid for 24-hours unless you change some of the criteria.

Free Regex Builder for Windows

We've covered several regular expression tools here on the site that make generating and testing your regex code easy, and today we've got a Windows app that does a bit more hand-holding. Expresso is a free (requires free registration) tool that has a built-in library of various expressions ready to be used, but also includes an Expression Builder for making your own.

Thoughtboxes is a Simple Online Todo Manager

We all use todo lists in different ways, and the great thing about them is that most of the time they can take whatever form we need them to. They can keep track of what needs to be done around the house, or help us remember the things we need to pack for a trip we're about to take.

Record Pandora Songs with PandoraJam

I've been getting into Pandora a lot lately, and it's largely because I hate taking the time to assemble my own playlists. I want something to do that for me, and Pandora is the perfect solution.

EmailTray is a Simple Desktop Mail App and Notifier

If you've been looking for a light desktop email application I'd give EmailTray a high recommendation. This isn't something that is designed to replace those full-fledged programs such as Outlook or Thunderbird, but when it comes to a simple mail manager and notifier it does quite well. Plus this will monitor multiple webmail accounts, POP or IMAP, for free.

Shapeshifter is an Awesome Clipboard Manager

I've tried using quite a few clipboard managers in the past, but I always run into the same problem of forgetting they are actually there. Sometimes they use a custom keyboard shortcut which is yet another thing you'll have to embed in your brain, or there will be a System Tray icon that will be forgotten about shortly after installation. In my mind these methods aren't efficient.

Disable iPhone AutoPlay Popup in Windows 7

When I'm at work I always like charging some of my devices while at my desk, and I generally do it through the USB connection on my computer. Some devices, such as the iPhone, will popup each time asking what you want to do with it (unless you have iTunes installed), and this can get pretty annoying since all I'm trying to do is charge my phone.

Evernote Tip: Using Future Dates for Your Favorite Notes

One of the things I like in Evernote's iPhone app is the ability to favorite notes to make those you frequently use easily accessible. Unfortunately their desktop apps don't have the same kind of functionality, but there are some different ways around this.
