Microsoft has revamped Bing search on Windows Phone 8, adding features that have been available on the Bing search apps for Android and iOS for the last few weeks. The company announced the changes in a post on the Bing Search blog Monday.
Windows Phone 8 devices come with Bing already baked into the operating system, usually accessible from a search button on the phone. Originally, when you ran a search and swiped left or right, you would see four categories of search results: web, local, media, and shopping.
Bing has condensed those categories to just Web, images, and video, … Read more
Linkin Park embraced the digital age early on. Even prior to changing the spelling of their name (because LincolnPark.com was already taken), founding members promoted their music in online chat rooms when most bands were still relying on street teams.
The eventually Grammy-winning, chart-topping alternative band, best known for such hits as "In the End," "Numb," "Breaking the Habit," "What I've Done," and "New Divide," has used MySpace to promote the "A Thousand Suns" album and has topped 1 billion views on YouTube. Linkin Park remains … Read more
There are many photo storage services available out there competing for the right to hold our digital memories. Apps like Instagram and Flickr were designed to make sharing photos online easier but were not specifically designed for private storage. Cloud depositories like Dropbox or Google Drive work amazingly well with documents and spreadsheets but not with images or movies. Loom comes onto the scene with a fantastic app to tackle a specific problem in a great way.
The Loom app automatically uploads all of your photos and videos from your iPad and iPhone to be shared interchangeably. The Web and … Read more
Technology, software in particular, has taken us places never thought imaginable. So it wasn't surprising when a conversation about apps took a turn into a deeper dialogue about art, childhood, and deep-seated insecurities. The aforementioned discussion took place between Download.com and Alex Karpovsky, in late July, in San Francisco, while he was on a promotional tour for his film "Red Flag," a smart satire about...a moviemaker (Alex Karpovsky) on a promotional tour (his 2008 film "Woodpecker," following a brutal breakup).
Karpovsky, best known for his role on the hit HBO series "Girls&… Read more
Hot Chelle Rae isn't a household name yet, but it's not for want of trying.

Since I started writing content for the How To blog, screenshots have become a staple of my work. Usually their purpose is to show the reader how to perform an action in a more precise way than words can express.
As you may imagine, I have tried a lot of different ways to take and save screenshots. The most basic method, PrtScr (Print Screen), still requires pasting the copied image into an editor and then saving it. While this is great because it is built-in, it makes the process more complex than necessary. Even though none of the screenshot utilities … Read more
