    4 hrs ago | Ubergizmo

    There is no limit to which people will not go to tinker with their gadgets and that's not a bad thing because we then get to see what the devices we use on a daily basis are really capable of instead of just sticking to what they're advertised to do. Take Dave Bennett for example, he wasn't content with his LG G Watch just running Android Wear so he took things into his hands and got Windows XP running on the smartwatch.

    19 hrs ago | Computing Unplugged Magazine

    I wrote this article to serve two purposes: one was to find a compatible and usable free POP3 email service for my own use, and the second was to share my findings with you.

    Yesterday | Hot Rod Magazine

    General Motors' LS-series small-block engines have been in production for over a decade, but it's only been within the last few years that they have really hit critical mass among average hot rodders, who are now finding them to respond superlatively to traditional hot rod power adders. One engine builder that's jumped on the LS bandwagon is Duttweiler Performance, renowned for its hard-running, high-tech, EFI turbo Buick V-6 and classic Chevy V-8 engines.

    Yesterday | Computing Unplugged Magazine

    Automotive technology has improved vastly over the last hundred years. While we've seen more and more fuel-efficient engines that greatly increase a car's range and the four wheel drive that enables us to travel off-road and in harsh conditions, one central component of the automobile has remained pretty much the same -- the navigation skills of the driver.

    Yesterday | Computing Unplugged Magazine

    An unexpected benefit of being a Windows CE-based device user is the realization that there are many things about desktop Windows that I have learned to take for granted.

    Yesterday | Mike Wendland

    That's why there's a part of me that takes a great amount of satisfaction in using older gear for as long as humanly possible - a kind of way to stick it to the man in a geeky sort of way. In fact, I use three laptops: a Dell Inspiron from 2005 running Windows XP , a Dell Inspiron N4010 from 2009 running Windows 7 Home Premium, and an HP Pavilion 17 running Windows 8. I just picked up the HP a few months ago and love it as my "main" computer.

  18. Should you turn your computer off at night?Read the original story

    Yesterday | Computing Unplugged Magazine

    One of my friends asked me one of those classic computer questions, and this time I decided to answer it with some care: I have often heard it is best not to power down your system at night, any of you IT guys have an opinon on this? I always shut my rig down at night, but it is a new computer and I don't want to damage it by turning it on and off all the time, so what say you? I've been a computer technician for 20 years, and a network engineer for 12 years. I also worked as an auto mechanic for 10 years prior to getting in to the computer field.

    Have you ever wanted to put your own custom database on your PalmPilot? Perhaps you collect and trade comic books or baseball cards and you'd like to be able to randomly query information about an item in your collection, such as price data, descriptive information and the condition of the item. Or how about keeping a company directory of phone extensions, beepers and other custom data handy, but you don't want to go through the pain of importing them into your Pilot using Address Book? What about your Christmas card or gift list? All of these things can be difficult to manage on the PalmPilot without using a real database program.
