Opera Mini for iPhone Tops App Store Charts
Once Apple gave Opera Mini the stamp of approval it didn’t take long for the free mobile browser to top the App Store in all 22 worldwide locations. I was one of those people who jumped on the chance to download the browser, but didn’t find much that was better than the built-in Safari browser. The loading times of sites were on par with Safari despite all traffic being passed through and optimized by Opera. Still, it hit over 1 million downloads in its first day of availability, which is pretty impressive.
Photoshop CS5 Content Aware Filling
Adobe will be releasing Creative Suite 5 in the next month, and one of the newly added features to Photoshop CS5 will be content-aware filling. This is like a healing brush on steroids, and is meant to remove and/or patch objects in photos. The video demonstrations shown off by Adobe are nothing short of impressive, and it will be interesting to see how this plays out when put up against some of our own photos.

How to Play Wii Games from an External Drive
This guide explains how you can use an SD card and an external hard drive as a way to backup all of your existing Wii games. Not only does this let you keep the actual discs safely tucked away, but it also means that you don’t have to go fishing for the discs when you want to play a game.
Free App Move Windows Between Multiple Monitors
This program is something I’ve wanted for a little while now. In a nutshell it will let you move a window to another monitor in just a couple clicks. This is something that Ultramon has always done, but seeing that Ultramon isn’t free I’d much rather use an app like this. The only other thing that would make this better for me would be if it had assignable hotkeys so that switching was even faster!
