6 Free Google Reader Alternatives 6 years 7 months ago rhiannon philj; I checked out feedshow before I wrote the article. I didn't include them because a)I don't see any mention of what they support other than a web reader - I assume no mobile support since it isn't mentioned. b)Their blog, their About page, and their Forums/Support page are non-existent. c)I'm not crazy about the idea that your feeds can make you and feedshow money. view

I just imported my feeds to Thunderbird and so far it works well. I've also tried RSS Bandit which is ok if you want a separate program. Feedly is ok and I use it on my laptop. I'll see what the Digg reader will be like when it comes out.

I'm now a Feedly convert. Seamless migration from Reader, plus very flexible viewing options that can be set for individual feeds and folders. It has occasionally been unavailable (only displaying a blank page!) because of all of the additional users that they now have.

Folks should note that The Old Reader only receives feed updates about once/day, which is why I gave it a pass when checking out alternatives.

Include supported browser versions. At my workplace IE 8 can only be used. Some of these alternate readers do not support IE 8, only 9 or 10 (2 recent versions). Registered on some of these but none display correctly, so I had to cancel the account. Had used Bloglines in the past and it had a feature for user to retain certain feeds (like the Starred Items in Google Reader) but that feature no longer exists. Also, Bloglines uses Netvibes like a "back-end" - the two are very similar.

Of all the confusing commercial security software folks insist on paying for Malwarebytes tops the list. It's riddled with false positives and even if users read the documentation 95% of them will not be able to understand how these results are generated. This makes it IMO totally useless as a security tool. Forticlient Free 6.0 will give you better and more accurate results plus it provides custom settings for your web filters.

view
55 Free Online Photo Edit & Paint Tools in One Place 5 days 6 hours ago rhiannon

Agreed MC. :)
Pothos is not the site I wrote up, however, I did visit all the listings offered on Pothos and ran the site through VirusTotal and it came up clean. That's one of the things I normally do before I write anything up - there's a lot of checking, testing, double checking, and research that goes into what I post, it's not quick or casual. For example, I tested every one of the 55 tools on Mara photos to make sure each worked and did what it said it did and to make sure there were no image quality issues that I could detect. With that said, I still miss things sometimes, and I'm grateful for the people who point out the errors. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
There's also quite a few programs and sites that don't make it all the way through testing for one reason or another.

I didn't download or test either of the programs that were listed on Pothos (Red Button and Christmas Elf).

5 Best Free Video Streaming Sites 3 years 10 months ago usadoug

IMO it's unfair to list as a con what "spam" comments that nor YouTube or content providers have no reasonable control over. Spam was first used to refer to unsolicited email. By posting comments for public consumption or post original comments to the content one is in essence soliciting responses. Googles/youtubes attempt to encourage/force the use of real names on YouTube had the potential to move abuse from inside the web into the world where people actually live. A crank angered by a John Doe on the web is likely to harass every John Doe they can find a phone number for. Actually comment on YouTube are some of the most useful on the web, particularly since YouTube got rid of the character limit and allowed inserting of all URL'. Yea you have to ignore the stupid crap, but that's a small price to pay for free. tmy gmail account associated with YouTube isn't my primary email account. The only time a make point to visit my gmail account is when I'm expect something from the google help staff or from the google/YouTube forums. Generally I scroll through the mail and based on the subject mark expect email to be moved to a folder for reading, the remainder is block deleted. I rarely engage in YouTube comment peeing contests

5 Best Free Video Streaming Sites 3 years 10 months ago usadoug

One doesn't have to use Google+ to use you tube, why not setup G+? When using YouTube I given the choice to use my long time anonymous YouTube user name of my G+ name. In the event the ability to comment is so important to anyone they should decide to stop viewing YouTube content after telling the google/YouTube and the content providers of that decision, and carry through with that decision. Clearly YouTube's hope was to clean up comments by having comments associated with what are thought to be real names civility would ensue. Did take sever exchanges with someone at YouTube to discover how I could still use my long time YouTube user name at YouTube, not my G= associated name. Sometimes getting what you think is right takes effort, and patience. Yes policy can change tomorrow. I'm ready to be allowed to watch the videos without commenting, or walk away from YouTube, I doubt few others are ready to do so as well. Anyway not in enough numbers to influance policy.

5 Best Free Video Streaming Sites 3 years 10 months ago heytisha

Hi usadoug, thank you for the comment! You make a good point. I am the same way! rarely will I spend time actually reading comments. YouTube also allows the uploader to disable/remove comments. However I think sometimes comments can border on abusive and/or irrelevant to the video completely. And if something can be done to filter comments more, it should be done. Wouldn't you say?

Huh. I'm not sure what genre or category (on the left side of the screen) you were looking at, but the categories I checked before posting this had no romance books. I looked at these genres and their categories: Computers and Technology, Travel, Arts and Photography, Reference, and Biographies & Memoirs.
The landing page has a lot of romance novels though, that's for sure.

I think their classification system is jumbled, but the categories and sub-categories are more reflective of the topic.

You could check the Mystery, Thriller & Suspense category for some of those authors, but I'm not sure that any of them would ever show up in the free category. Lee Child (Jack Reacher), Michael Connelly (Harry Bosch) and Robert Crais (Elvis Cole) are all popular authors. I've don't think I've ever seen popular and best-selling authors in the free category, and I've seen only a few authors at that level show up in discounted books. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Amazon's eBooks are downloaded in their propietary format, though they can converted to ePub on the web or using a program like Calibre.

Excellent article :) I think there's a small mistake in the following para. Please correct me if I am wrong. The original is as follows:

"One important point that is made in that article is that it is not possible to install a 32-bit device driver on a 64-bit operating system. This is because device drivers run in parallel to the operating system. The emulation is done at the operating system level so it is available to the higher layer, the application, but it is not available to the device driver which runs on the same level."

The corrected one, which I think should be is as follows:
