"Better makes people happy", well it is safe to say that I am not at all happy with Betterfly's decision to overstep and create a Facebook page in my name without my permission or knowledge. Google Alerts is an AWESOME service that I will write about in more detail in the future but today I learned (thanks to Google Alerts) that the website Betterfly.com decided to do a bit of overstepping by creating a Facebook Page in my name...without my permission or even informing me of it.
Google has acquired Meebo.com and has decided to shut down 99% of their products including the cloud based instant messaging client that Meebo is known for. This has probably pissed off a lot of people but I am on the other side of the track as I am quite happy that Google has decided to do this.
Update: I never received a response from the developers of MoboPlayer but as of their latest update to the app it appears that they have fixed this problem.
The update process for 0.1 to 0.2 is a bit different. I am creating a PPA version and a Non-PPA version of the Wunderlist FogApp for people who don't like using 3rd-party PPAs...which I understand...and for those people I built an in-app Version Checker for informing them of new updates to both the FogApp and to FogApp Themes.
Our newly released Wunderlist FogApp 0.2 now has support for Themes, something that is otherwise impossible with Wunderlist. :) The Wunderlist FogApp also supports a version update checking system for the FogApp itself (for non-PPA users) and any installed Themes (for all users). Theme updates are only available for Wunderlist FogApp OFFICIAL Themes as they have to be tested and verified by us (here at Visuex). The downloads for the themes almost must be hosted here at Visuex.com to utilize the Themes Update Checker...if you don't want to use that, then you can host it anywhere you want.
Wunderlist is an outstanding To-Do List application that has a WebApp and downloads for Android, iOS, Mac OSX, & Windows but unfortunately for my fellow Linux users Wunderlist does not currently have a Linux compatible version of their application. They did used to have one but sadly it does not work for the current version of Ubuntu which is 12.04...so we made our own!
LastPass is a Password Manager tool that allows you to only remember one (though purposefully hard-to-remember) password for everything you do online and actually in some cases even for things done offline. LastPass is much more than just a manager though because it also provides tools for Automatic Password Generation, Auto-Fill, Auto-Login, One-Time Passwords, Easy Password Search, Importing Passwords from almost every option imaginable (including 10 I've never heard of) and much MUCH more!
We here at Visuex used to be advocates for LiveZilla, we created Open Source Projects and even started a Design service based on it. However, since the release of Version 4 not only are we no longer advocates but we are now 100% Anti-Livezilla. This article will explain why we stopped using the software as well as the reasoning for why we became Anti-LZ and why our stance of Anti-LZ is so severe as to discontinue our projects and service for it.
Facebook has decided to require SSL certificates (https://) for all iFrame Facebook Apps as of October 1st, 2011. This decision has been met with mixed reactions and even I'm conflicted with what I think about it. On one hand, I agree with it because having a secure connection over non-secure will certainly help the casual users that use Facebook and have no need to know what it even is. On the other hand, I don't like it because it then requires people who make Facebook Apps for clients like I do to have SSL Certificates for each client/app. That would be a VERY BIG hassle to deal with especially on websites that have absolutely zero need for SSL, like this site which doesn't collect anything from its visitors.

Google allows you the ability to use multiple gmail accounts at the same time through multiple sign-in or email delegation each with their own pros and cons but for me delegation works best because of no limitation of how many email accounts you can have open at once in one browser (multiple sign-in limit is 3 inboxes). The problem with delegation is that you have to login to the first gmail account and then use dropdown menus to open the other accounts.
This tutorial will show you how to easily and quickly open many different gmail accounts in one browser using bookmarks, quick search keywords and keyboard shortcuts inside the Firefox web browser.
