/* Filed under PSP    */

This is one application your PSP shouldn’t be without, unless you don’t use plug-ins. But we all do Another entry in the 5h4d0w’s lets you enable, disable or edit plug-ins with ease. All on the go, no more having to edit the seplugin text files to disable a conflicting plug-in. Just fire this up no PC/Mac needed.

Developer’s notes:

Tested on 5.00 M33, 5.03 GEN, 5.50 GEN, 6.20 TN and 6.35 PRO (the latter two don’t have recovery menus).
You can enable and disable plugins without a computer.
Works on PSP GOs, and can force loading from “ms0:/” instead of “ef0:/” (the internal storage).

Can add, edit, remove, toggle, and move plugins in all three .txt files.
(When adding a plugin, do NOT add the device name (ef0:/ or ms0:/) OR the 1/0 switch; It will add them for you.)

Only loads from .txt files that exist. If they don’t exist, it creates them for you.
You can revert your changes by pressing [SELECT].
Gives the option to auto-exit from the app once you save your changes.

Allows you to decide which options are available (by editing the config).
(Example: You give a friend your PSP for a while but don’t want him messing with your plugins, so you disable what you don’t want him to do.)

Nice pop-up menu.
Can be “themed” (by editing the config; unfinished.).
Will strip-out any empty lines in your text files, making them look cleaner.

Hide or Disable the Admin Bar in WordPress 3.1

/* Posted March 28th, 2011 at 2:34pm [Comments: none]    */
/* Filed under General    */

Recently, I wrote about how to fix the blank admin bar in your theme on a newly upgraded WordPress 3.1 installation. This is a great new feature introduced in WordPress 3.1 that lets you get access to commonly used tasks in the dashboard, even while you are viewing your website. However it’s not for everybody and it’s possible you may want to hide or disable the admin bar.

This is a per user setting, so you must look for the Users menu on the admin sections sidebar and click “Your Profile.” There is an option just below the top like this:

disable wordpress admin bar

You have the option to disable it separately in the dashboard and while viewing your site. Simply uncheck the options where you want to hide the admin bar and save your settings.

Remote Conductor for IPad

/* Posted March 28th, 2011 at 8:34am [Comments: none]    */
/* Filed under News    */

Remote Conductor from m3me is a $7 app that turns your iPad into a souped-up trackpad. I thought Apple’s Magic Trackpad was the coolest thing ever and bought one shortly after its release. But I ended up returning it because I quickly realized it wouldn’t replace my mouse and I couldn’t justify spending $70 on a device that I’d only use occasionally. However, when Remote Conductor came across my radar, its $7 price made it an easy purchase and I’ve found it much more useful than the Magic Trackpad, at one-tenth the price. The app has earned a coveted standalone spot (not in a folder) on my iPad’s home screen. Here’s how I use it:

As a secondary input device on my Mac: I spend quite a bit of time reading on my Mac, so it’s very nice being able switch apps and scroll through documents sitting comfortably with my iPad in my lap, rather than hunched over a desk using the keyboard and mouse.

As a remote controlling a conference room computer: My company’s conference room has a large screen TV connected to a Mac mini which we use for meetings and presentations. Whenever I need to control the presentation, rather than pass around the keyboard and mouse, it’s so much more convenient to simply fire up Remote Conductor on my iPad and take control.

As a remote controlling a Mac media center: I have an old Mac mini connected to the TV in the bedroom, and using Remote Conductor to control it is so much more convenient (and cheaper) than using a wireless keyboard and trackpad.

The Remote Conductor app works over Wi-Fi by communicating with a small server app that runs on your computer. (The app’s developer has promised a Windows-compatible server app; I have only used the Mac version.) Pairing the iPad app with the server app is a quick process that’s similar to pairing a Bluetooth device. Once the two pieces are connected, Remote Conductor provides three modes-trackpad, launcher, and switcher.

In trackpad mode, moving your finger across the iPad’s screen moves the mouse pointer across the remote screen. The app offers the usual trackpad behaviors-tap once to click, tap twice to double-click and drag with two fingers to scroll. Less intuitive shortcuts include a four-finger-swipe option; swiping upward displays the Desktop and downwards shows the Exposé screen. Other multi-touch options can be set in the app’s preferences and a handy reference of all the options is available one tap away.

Tapping a Rocket Ship icon puts you in launcher mode and gives you access to all the apps installed on your computer. The server app keeps an inventory of the applications located in your dock and within your Applications and Utilities folders (and the Developer folder if you have the Xcode developer tools installed). Application icons are displayed in an iOS-style grid on your iPad, and dock icons appear in a dock along the bottom of the screen. App icons are spread among several screens and, in typical iOS style, you move among those pages by swiping left and right. Tapping once on an icon launches that app and then switches Remote Conductor into trackpad mode.

There are a handful of applications that I use on a daily basis. Not wanting to wade through multiple screens of icons, I created a folder containing aliases of those apps and then added that location to the server app’s preferences. That approach works fine; however my custom screen always appears at the end. It would be nice if I could move that screen to the beginning.

My favorite use of Conductor is as an application switcher. A tap of the Light Switch icon displays a scrolling list of all the apps running on your computer and their windows. A live-updating thumbnail of the most recently used window of each app appears in the middle of the screen. Thumbnails of other open windows appear both above and below the app’s primary thumbnail in the middle. Clicking on a thumbnail brings that window to the foreground. This process also works very well with minimized windows and those spread among multiple Spaces. The switcher provides quite a few other options which are easier to see than to describe, so the developers have put together a useful YouTube video that shows the switcher in action.

Regardless of which mode you’re in, a small keyboard icon appears at the bottom of the screen which brings up the familiar onscreen keyboard. It works as expected but there’s currently no support for keyboard shortcuts (like Command+S to save or Command+Q to quit, for example.) This feature is forthcoming according to the developers.

Remote Conductor isn’t without its minor quirks. I occasionally have trouble dragging windows with the default tap-hold-drag technique. (The optional three-finger-drag setting works reliably, though.) And if I have too many apps open on my iPad, then the launcher sometimes refuses to load. (This is a known issue. Freeing up memory by quitting unused apps always does the trick.) Despite these few very minor annoyances, I love Remote Conductor. And the developer is very responsive to its customers, quickly fixing bugs and adding new features.

So, iPad owners who have been contemplating the purchase of a Magic Trackpad, I seriously urge you to take a look at Remote Conductor. For one-tenth the price, it provides three times the functionality. Now that’s truly magic.

RIM’s PlayBook will run Android apps

RIMs BlackBerry PlayBook will also run Android 2.3 apps.

So the rumors were true: Research In Motion announced today it will allow Android apps on its yet-to-be-released
tablet, the PlayBook.

The forthcoming tablet will have “app players” that will run BlackBerry apps created in Java, and apps created for Android 2.3.

Having the option of downloading Android apps on BlackBerry App World “will provide our users with an even greater choice of apps and will also showcase the versatility of the platform,” Mike Lazaridis, president and co-CEO of RIM, said in a statement.

For developers working on apps, RIM says a “high degree of API compatibility” makes it easy to port BlackBerry Java and Android apps to the BlackBerry Tablet OS that will run on the PlayBook.

Word began to spread that RIM was thinking of allowing Android apps on its tablet starting in January. Many dismissed it because RIM had spent a lot of money to buy QNX, which makes the software on which the BlackBerry Tablet OS is built, and because it had done so much work with its own BlackBerry developer community.

RIM announced a 32 percent increase in quarterly earnings today, but warned of weakness in the coming quarter.

Crysis 2 is EA’s biggest UK launch of 2011

/* Posted March 28th, 2011 at 8:34am [Comments: none]    */
/* Filed under Video Games    */

crysis-2

 

 

Publisher Electronic Arts has a lot to be happy about. Crysis 2 is the current top dog in the latest UKIE GfK Chart-Track UK All Formats Top 40 list, beating out new 3DS software and wrestling the number one position from THQ’s Homefront. The latter has dropped to third place, behind Lego Star Wars III.

 

According to game industry news site MCV, the new first-person shooter from developer Crytek has also reportedly become EA’s biggest 2011 launch in the territory. Other big games released by the publisher this year include Bulletstorm, Dragon Age 2, and Dead Space 2. The PS3 version of Mass Effect 2 also hit earlier this year.

 

Interestingly enough, Crysis 2 didn’t get most of its sales from the PC gaming sector even though the first Crysis was exclusive to that particular platform. MCV’s report gives that honor to the game’s Xbox 360 version, which grabbed 57 percent of its total sales in the UK. The PS3 followed with 29 percent and the PC version trailed with only 14 percent of sales. It’s worth noting, however, that the sales figure don’t include copies bought through digital channels.

Hide Applications From The Taskbar With WinVisible

/* Posted March 27th, 2011 at 8:34pm [Comments: none]    */
/* Filed under Gadgets    */

Many users tend to do personal things while at work such as surfing internet, messaging with friends, playing games, etc. It may happen that colleagues and superiors suddenly walk by and they have to immediately close the program or minimize it. Some users probably even have to restart their computer or turn off their monitor to avoid being caught in an embarrassing situation. If you have ever experienced this, perhaps NCS’ WinVisible can give you an alternative solution.

NCS WinVisible is an interesting and tiny application that can help users to hide running applications from the taskbar with their assigned hotkeys. With this privacy-protector application, users can configure the applications with special hotkeys and just press the hotkeys to hide the application immediately. To bring back the invisible application to the taskbar, users just need to press another set of separate hotkeys to call it back to the Windows taskbar or the system tray.

Besides hiding the running applications from being seen by others, WinVisible also offers another feature which terminates or kills the running applications immediately with certain assigned hotkeys. By pressing the hotkeys, the applications will be terminated immediately but the unsaved work will be lost. Hence users need to be cautious if they press these hotkeys.

WinVisible will be quite useful for users who want to keep their secret or do not intend to let other people know what they are doing.

Download the free WinVisible: winvis.zip

Chrono Trigger, Mega Man X to Japan’s Virtual Console

/* Posted March 27th, 2011 at 8:34pm [Comments: none]    */
/* Filed under Video Games    */

Screengrab: vgmuseum.com

Happy Saturday! Although you’re probably only thinking about playing your brand-new Nintendo system, there are still a bunch of old games to play on Wii. In particular, Nintendo said this week that Square Enix’s beloved RPG classic Chrono Trigger (right) and Capcom’s Mega Man X will be released on Virtual Console in Japan this April.

I’d bet any amount of money that both of these games will show up in America this year; it’s just a question of when all concerned parties get around to it. Remember that we’re supposed to have Final Fantasy III (née VI) at some point too; it came out in Japan on March 15.

Weekend homework: Almost five years later, what games still aren’t out on Virtual Console that you really want?

HoW To DO SeO WeLl And sTuFf!!

/* Posted March 27th, 2011 at 8:34pm [Comments: none]    */
/* Filed under SEO    */

(I know some people may take the following advice seriously. Please don’t…)

SEO is the future of everything. By harnessing the power of this tried and tested technique you can dominate the world and make sure your website ranks number one for popular search terms like ‘how to get red wine stains out of upholstery ‘ and ‘Megan Fox in the buff’. SEO will make you literally millions of dollars in revenue and anyone who isn’t using it will probably go out of business quite soon.  The internet is now a huge part of everyone’s lives, and has been since about 2007.

Even old people are using the internet, and would be very well advised to utilise SEO to build authority around their blog and drive traffic to their network of sites.

So how can you do SEO on your own site to make thousands of dollars in revenue every day from the comfort of your own home?

Site Design

First of all, you need to make sure your site looks really cool, if your site isn’t covered in flash animations and colourful lettering, your bounce rate will be through the roof. Make sure you have a really eye catching banner, tonnes of photos and every conceivable social media widget on your site.

Keyword Research

Find the most searched keywords around your brand, and peruse them relentlessly; completely ignore useless long tail terms. The best terms are certainly ones that comprise of only one or two words, since most internet users are lazy and illiterate and thus don’t care for wasting their time typing when they could be on Facebook doing more important stuff.

Competitor Research

When it comes to competitor research, the best method is to shamelessly copy your closest rival. Find out where their best links are coming from and try and get them yourself, even if they are totally irrelevant to your business, it really doesn’t matter – follow the SEO mantra – a link is a link.

Link Building

When it comes to link-building more is more. You need to get as many links out there as quickly possible. It really doesn’t matter how you do this, just get links where you can – comment spamming, hidden text it’s all good. I’ve recently heard a lot of buzz about content farms, these also sound like a great way to get 100’s of links out there ASAP – give it a go!

Social Media

The internet is changing, SEO is now dead and social media rules the roost. Since rankings now don’t matter, you need to find revenue streams in other ways. Use Facebook and Twitter to ENGAGE with you target audience and build ADVOCACY with your brand. Sorted.
