Since you are reading this on the Internet, I’m going to go ahead and assume that you’re already familiar with the Ice Bucket Challenge, wherein folks are being nominated by friends, fans and colleagues to dump buckets of freezing cold water on their heads on camera to raise awareness of (and money to combat) ALS, a neurodegenerative disease that attacks the brain and spinal cord — or Lou Gehrig’s Disease, as it is popularly known. Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen plenty of famous folks taking the challenge, but now, it has busted right through the Fourth Wal, and all the way to Gotham City’s Burnside neighborhood.
When you remove software from your desktop or laptop, empty folders might be left behind. Consequently, there are a number of utility packages that include options for locating and deleting empty folders. Among them is the freeware called Glary Utilities, which you can add to Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8.
In 2008, the internet was a very different place. It had been a year since the first iPhone was announced and that year, the first commercially produced Android phone was launched by HTC. Snow Leopard debuted in the summer of that year and it would be another year until Windows 7 came out leaving users with the unsatisfactory Vista version.
It was a time of discovery; users were testing what these new devices could do and looking to get more out of their desktops than ever before. Apps and programs were exciting to try out, difficult to find, and sometimes too shady looking to install. It was all this that led to the creation of AddictiveTips; a blog dedicated to helping users find reliable apps and tips, tutorials that worked, and an honest opinion on what was good and what wasn’t.
In Google Drive, you can opt to share files publicly by changing the sharing settings and viewing permissions. However, this particular feature hasn’t been fully utilized to a certain extent. So unless you let others know that you’ve shared some public files, they will have a difficult time finding it via web search. Now, let’s find out if Cloud Kite can actually fill that void.
Gotham Academy: Becky Cloonan’s Super Cool Hero Portraits, Character Breakdowns and Guerrilla Marketing
I don’t think it’s possible for the staff of ComicsAlliance to get more excited for Becky Cloonan, Brenden Fletcher and Karl Kerschl‘s Gotham Academy than we already are, but if there’s one thing that could do it, it’s seeing the characters for the new book in a set of brand-new portraits drawn by Cloonan. This week, that’s exactly what we’ve got, so prepare yourself, because they are fantastic.
In a set of three images, Cloonan has introduced us to the principal characters, Olive Silverlock, Maps Mizoguchi and Kyle Mizoguchi. Check them out below, along with what the creators of the book had to say in our interview from San Diego Comic-Con.
Instagram has just released an new app for video recording called Hyperlapse. If you’re wondering why the company needed to release a video recording app when Instagram itself can both record videos and import them from your camera roll, then read on. Hyperlapse is for creating time lapse videos, really good ones at that. Unlike the Instagram app that lets you selectively record with your device, Hyperlapse will record a full video and speed it up anywhere between normal playback to playback at twelve times the normal speed. The video can then be shared to Instagram and Facebook.
Launch the app and swipe through the brief tutorial to start recording your first time lapse video. The app works in both vertical and horizontal orientations but since you’re recording a video, flip the phone on its side and record it horizontally. As you record, you will see two timers running at the bottom; one slower than the other. The timer on the left indicates the length of the recording while the timer on the right indicates the final length of the time lapse video at 6x playback speed. When you’re done recording, tap the stop button.
