I am often asked by new iPad owners which apps they should install first. That’s a tough question as it all depends on each individual and how they want to use their new device.

So, instead of sending all these lists — I’m not going to mention any of them here — simply because all you have to do is search for “ Best iPad Apps ” on your favorite search engine — try an app called AppStart ! AppStart is a great app for finding the apps that fits your needs.

In recent years, intelligent location and social awareness has become a user expectation – almost everything that we touch is in some way intelligently connected to us or other devices around us and technology is starting to second guess our intentions based on the context that we’ve given it. Sometimes that context is deliberately and clearly identified such as in a diary appointment, other times that context is suggested through our current location or updates to our social streams. As we are starting to expect more and more from the technology that we carry around with us, it’s nice to have a vision of where we’re headed.
Posted on Monday, January 2nd, 2012 by Danny Davies Well folks, happy new year. In a blaze of fireworks and e-greetings, 2012 has finally arrived.

Not sure if this falls in the category of Easter Egg or clever manipulation, but either way, there go our afternoons: Redditor harrichr has devised a scheme for turning Google Translate into a makeshift beatbox machine . 1) Go to  Google Translate 2) Set the translator to translate German to German 3) Copy + paste the following into the translate box: pv zk pv pv zk pv zk kz zk pv pv pv zk pv zk zk pzk pzk pvzkpkzvpvzk kkkkkk bsch 4) Click “listen” 5) Be amazed :) For the lazy, just click this link and it’ll be done for you. There’s nothing magical about this particular sequence, and there’s tons of room for experimentation: In German, anyway, “pv” and “zk” make complementary breathy sounds and clicks, respectively.
It's time to update the entries in your browser's links toolbar. But with recent estimates putting the size of the internet at well more than 100 million distinct websites, it's getting harder and harder to get a handle on all the great stuff that's out there. That's why we've compiled this list. And unlike some lists you may have seen, which try to name the very "best" websites, but end up just telling you a lot of stuff you already know, we've chosen instead to highlight 50 of our favorite sites that fly under most people's radar. Think of it as the Maximum PC blog roll (remember those?).
