Top 10 Underhyped Windows Apps

Top 10 Underhyped Windows Apps
I have a few Metro Apps that I can recommend. As a Desktop Explorer alternative, I can recommend My Explorer for simple browsing and Metro Commander for moving files from A to B, or C:\ to D:\. If you use Dropbox, then you also might want to install the official Dropbox App. For your YouTube needs, there is YouTube Player or, if you need a few additional features, YouTube RT. Aside from that, Win8/RT already comes with a lot of good Apps. What I can NOT recommend, tho, is Skype, as the Desktop version still works much better and does not screw up when you use Steam in OpenMic mode, the default Music app stand-alone as the Playlist manager is horrible (but the player itself is fine otherwise) and any App that lets you throw a more Metro-styled tile for your Desktop programs on the Start screen (OblyTile works better and is free)

However, before we start setting up our portable office, there’s something that must be discussed… Security Here's the problem: Using an unsecured USB key as a portable office represents a major security risk.

5 Secret Restaurants in Paris Promise you won’t tell anyone…! 1. L’Etage de Pastavino – Saint Germain’s best-kept secret It just looks like an ordinary Italian deli (épicerie in French) on a bustling market street in Saint Germain … but it’s hiding a secret in a dark corner at the back. Indicated only by two blackboards nearly tucked out of sight, something well-worth discovering is at the top of this winding staircase … Disappear past the shelves of Italian produce and find yourself in a charming, chic and cosy dining room upstairs… Jazz music plays softly in the background. We didn’t order this little plate, but it came anyway. We tried the four house cheeses of the day. Look at that creamy heart of burrata… The menu is varied and written entirely in Italian (which the rather handsome waiters kindly translate and explain to you item by item). So next time you pass a deli-cum-sandwich shop, take a second look, it might not be all that it seems! La Bottega Pastavino//L’Etage de Pastavino, 18 Rue de Buci, 6eme. 2. 3. 4. 5.
