When it comes to computers, there’s nothing more important than customization. Manufacturers tend to ship computers with basic configurations, that are made to agree with everyone. However, these configurations lack familiarity. People should have a computer that fits their lifestyle. This can be accomplished in many different ways, but today I will be focusing on software.
I started playing the Facebook application ‘Mob Wars’ about two weeks ago and to my surprise I actually really enjoy it. The concept of the game is simple: build a mob by recruiting your friends, buy as much real estate as possible, arm your mob with the best weapons and vehicles, then kill anyone that stands in your way.

In today’s article I would like to talk about an amazing first-person shooter, that my roommate introduced me to—called
Urban Terror. If you have ever played games like Quake, Counter Strike, or Half-life, then this game is a must download. Urban Terror is a completely free game, that is based off of Quake III Arena. It adapts the best of both worlds, by creating an environment that is both enjoyable and realistic.
“Urban Terror can best be described as a Hollywood tactical shooter; it is realism based to a certain extent (environments/weapons/player models), but also goes by the motto “fun over realism” (fast gameplay and lots of action). This combination of reality and action results in a very unique, enjoyable and addictive game.” - Urban Terror Team
Some of you may remember the days of the cassette tape. Relatively simple in design and quality, but still useful if you wanted to record music from your favorite radio station or create that famous mix tape. However, due to the nature of the tapes, it was very difficult to record specific songs and even more difficult to split those songs up. Luckily, things are much simpler now. Read More→
Admit it, no one likes paying for music anymore. If theres a way to get it for free, we tend to do it—even when there are consequences. Some might call it a crime, but the Internet just makes it too easy. Plus, you know you won’t get caught…
Well, the fact is, most of the time it is a crime and it is very possible to get caught. So what can you do? Read More→
Data loss has become a huge issue in both the personal and business atmospheres over the past few years. It is an issue that affects all of us, but is sometimes left unprotected. Threats can come from anywhere. Malicious software can enter your computer and delete or copy valuable information. Hardware can malfunction within your own system. Even such a simple thing as user error can lead to loss of data—either by accident or through a malicious attack in an unprotected system. Read More→
How many times have you sat around your house wishing you had something to do? Ever thought about going out for a nice little jog? You know its something you should do, but you just aren’t motivated enough to actually go through with it. After all, “Some people are runners, some people aren’t”. Read More→
I first started using Mozilla’s Firefox about three years ago. I was tired of all the problems I ran into using Microsoft’s Internet Explorer(IE) and was ready for something that worked. I didn’t know it at the time, but after exploring all that Firefox has to offer, I know I will never go back.
If by some chance you have been living under a rock for the past four years and don’t know what Firefox is you can check it out here. I can guarantee you won’t regret making the switch. However, the point of this article is not just to praise Firefox—there’s already too many people who have taken care of that. No, this article was created to shed light on what a colleague of mine considers to be a security flaw. In my opinion it is more a matter of user error, but unless the user is made aware of the risk—who is at fault? Read More→
Although the modification of gaming consoles has been around for quite some time—the general public still tends to think of it mostly as taboo. Why would any sane person risk the destruction of something so expensive? Well the answer to this question, starts when you stop thinking of the xbox as just a gaming console. Read More→
