Awesome Free Alternative to GoToMeeting
2012-05-22 09:00:00
My poor, poor users. We used to use GoToMeeting at my company, but renewing the annual license was going to be astronomical. At least astronomical for a small company trying to make it in this crazy world. Anyway, long story short, our CFO put the kibosh on GoToMeeting because it was super expeensive, and we were already paying for Office365 from Microsoft which comes with Lync and Live Meeting.Well my users friggin' HATE Live Meeting. Like most Microsoft products, it is designed to work on Microsoft platforms. Well our sales people happen to sell to real estate brokers, and other small business owners that prefer to use Mac, and Live Meeting works as smooth as sandpaper on Mac. My desk is right by the sales area so I am in earshot of their constant complaints.Not wanting to hear anymore bitching, but also not wanting to go against the CFO's wishes, I saught after a free alternative to GoToMeeting that was simple to use and worked on any platform, or at least Windows and Mac. I fo...

Is Nuance Making Voice Typing A Real Alternative To The Keyboard?
2012-05-14 12:30:00
With the widespread propagation of Personal Computers, it was found that not everyone is comfortable with typing all the time. This lead to the hunt for other ways to input text. The mouse was used to navigate around menus, and people even tried digital pens to input text. However, it was not as quick as needed to genuinely replace the keyboard. Then came ‘Voice Recognition’. At first it was incredibly limited and slow, but over time, as hardware and software improved, voice recognition has reached a stage where it can be used by the average consumer. Google is very bullish about Voice Inputs and has integrated it deeply on their Android Smartphones. Apple too set the bar in personal voice assistants with their Siri for the new iPhone. This may surprise some, but voice input has made sizable advancements in the Indian Market too, largely due to Nuance Communications. Through a software developed by them called Dragon NaturallySpeaking, voice recognition is being us...

"Singin' in the Rain" (Symbolism and Interpretation): An Alternative View
2012-04-24 06:30:00
I consider "Donnie Darko: An Alternative View" as one of my best articles/interpretations I've ever written, maybe it's due (from a sentimental point of view) to being Richard Kelly's cult classic "Donnie Darko" the subject of one of my first serious analysis in film criticism. Another film which has similarly gotten such a hold of me lately is "Singin' In The Rain", which deserves on its own classic merits a new essay, this time related to Sigmund Freud's symbolism theories, also invoking the themes of matriarchy and incest that can belie its gleaming surface. Here is my postulation: "Singin' In The Rain, allegory and symbols". I've used as examples for my thesis fragments from "Freud, Psychoanalysis and Symbolism" by Agnes Petocz (1995) Don Lockwood (Gene Kelly): -I can't get her out of my mind. Cosmo (Donald O'Connor): -How could you? She's the first dame not to fall for you in ages. Don Lockwood: -She's on my conscience. Sigmund Freud regarded conscience as o...

Marbella homes tipped as historic alternative
2012-04-17 02:00:00
Some people looking for property in Spain may consider Marbella to be a place to buy beachfront villas, but that is not the only option. A Daily Telegraph feature on the resort notes that the historic centre further inland offers an alternative charm, revealing the experience of British expats Diane Langford and John Taylor, who are both in their 60s. Ms Langford said the couple rejected the idea of buying an off-plan property when they started house hunting in Marbella in 2005, instead buying a 150-year-old home that they find they can rent out all year round, not just in the holiday season. She explained: "We wanted an older property that we could refurbish ourselves in the historic quarter, which has a wonderful atmosphere." The building is linked to a local hotel and Ms Langford cut a deal with the owner that they could make it part of the hotel and split the income from hiring out rooms. Another Spanish location investors may consider is Granada, with director of...
Alternative To SSO For Microsoft Office365
2012-04-09 09:00:00
Greetings fellow geeks. I have a fairly decent article for you today I think. Especially if your company is getting ready to transition to Microsoft Office365 from BPOS or from an on-premise Exchange setup. The reason this may be good for you is I am offering an alternative to their single-sign on (SSO) implementation which uses the extremely complicated Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS).This solution comes from the same group I used when I first started managing BPOS for my current company to sync passwords with Microsoft Online called MessageOps. It consists of a client and server setup that captures password changes on your domain controllers and passes them to a server to sync with Microsoft Online. I wrote about that setup for BPOS here: (Sync AD Passwords With BPOS)Well, Microsoft is forcing all BPOS users to upgrade to Office365 so that means that the old sync server won't work anymore. That's fine, because MessageOps has come up with a tool for Office365 that wor...
Alternative Email Client For Android
2012-04-04 09:00:00
A few weeks ago I was talking about a really great custom ICS themed ROM based on CM7 custom firmware. Although it really was pretty cool after a while I started to notice weird quirky little issues on my Evo 4G. For instance I have a bluetooth speaker phone in my car that I like to connect my phone to for hands free calls and to stream Pandora through my car's radio. That worked fine, but when I disconnected from the bluetooth device, the speaker would stop working on my phone until I rebooted. There were a number of little gotchas like that so i decided to go back to the stock ROM and re-root it.The thing I really really liked about the custom ROM though was the email application that came with it. It allowed me to check multiple emails in my inbox and mark them all as read. The default HTC email client doesn't do that. Plus the one from the CM7 ROM also supports Microsoft Exchange. The trouble is you can't find it in the Android Market anywhere. Well I found a copy that was ex...
Starbucks Says They?ll Find Cochineal Alternative; Here?s Why They Shouldn?
2012-04-03 23:26:00
Starbucks announced last week that they use cochineal extract in their strawberry-flavored Frappucinos, causing near hysteria from critics who were perturbed to find that the food dye is made of crushed bugs. This week, they've issued a statement saying they'll change the formula. But if we really want to put the pressure on Starbucks and other fast-food chains to clean up their menu, I think we need to shift the focus from vegan food coloring. More »Post from: Blisstree
Forget 1% CDs ? This Alternative Pays Four Times More
2012-03-23 15:30:00
1.80%. That's the highest paying FDIC-insured bank CD I could find on And that's only if keep my money tied up for five years! The average one-year CD pays just 0.72% APY. I remember when I worked for a community bank a few years ago, just after CD interest rates plummeted from a healthy 5% to a paltry 2%.  Bank CDs, a product that customers would have lined up for in the past, became a tough sell — especially to retirees that actually depended on the interest to live every day. When I told one of our elderly customers he'd have to invest in a five-year CD to get a rate even remotely close to the . . . → Read More: Forget 1% CDs — This Alternative Pays Four Times More
Ubuntu 12.04: An even better alternative to Windows

Open-Source Slideshare alternative
2012-02-21 12:47:00
There were 2 reasons for me to create an alternative to slidehsare's slide-show plugin : My uncle had a 170MB PPT file which is over-the-limit of Slideshare's 100MB size limit.My previous company's CEO wanted to display 6 slideshows on the company's homepage and 6 slideshare plugins was being extremely heavy esp on the flash part. So I created a simple slide-show using jQuery as a jQuery plugin. There are some advantages as well as disadvantages.AdvantagesThis is completely customizable using CSS.Flexible slide sizeUnlimited slidesDisadvantagesThe slides are all images though, not HTML on the inside. Images would consume more space than HTML sildes.You need to export the slides to images, which you can do using Open Office.Require basic programming knowledge in HTML, CSS & JavaScript to embed this.An example of this :Usage : $(document).ready(function() { $('#div-element').jscoin_slide(-{effect:'slideUp'}); });The other options for effect are fade, flip and slideThis proj...

Another Alternative to Pandora One
2012-02-10 09:00:00
Ever since Pandora, the internet radio site, changed their layout it broke my favorite desktop client for Pandora called Open Pandora. True, I could upgrade to Pandora One, but I'm a cheap bastard. Also true, I can just listen to Pandora from my web browser, but sometimes I just don't like to have my browsers open all the time. Hence the need for a desktop client.Well I found a very cool little application on the Hak5 Forums from a user named ZigZagJoe called the Standalone Pandora Client. This little player does not work in anonymous mode, so you have to have a Pandora login to use it, but that's no big deal. You will also need .Net Framework 2.0. If you have a Linux computer, this will run in WINE, you just need to check the box for WINE compatibility at install. After you install it, you have a very lightweight client to listen to Pandora without your browser!Here is a list of features:Supports creating and seeding stations by searching for musicSupports deletion and rena...

Conformity Method - Alternative View To Game
2011-11-25 00:37:00
By Adam Lyons When I first started the game I had the pleasure of being able to devote all of my time to developing new ideas and theories based on my own experience in field and research which helped alter the way thousands of people around the world approached the game. Unfortunately I’ve been so busy teaching recently that I’m just not getting the time I wanted to write up all my new theories and findings. However there was a little something I’ve been researching recently which gives a slightly new perspective to an old game we’ve been playing. Those who’ve studied with me will be aware of my method of starting from comfort and exploiting social proof for all it’s worth. Well it turns out that actually a lot of my methods are not only backed up in the psychological studies I’ve mentioned in my own works but also by numerous other studies that where to demonstrate something other than attraction, that of conformity.

Alternative To Wireshark in Windows For Network Monitoring and Analysis
2011-11-22 09:00:00
I have been dealing with an intermittant network issue for the past month and a half at work. Maybe once or twice per week, one of our VLANs will drop out for about 5 minutes, then come back up. I was talking with a Network Engineer friend of mine, and he thought it was probably a spanning-tree issue, however I'm not convinced of that. I explained the issue to another friend of mine who has been doing networking for a really long time, and he doesn't think it's a spanning-tree issue because only the one VLAN goes down, and all traffic on that VLAN doesn't stop. Anything on that VLAN can still talk to each other, it's the inter-VLAN routing that stops working, and that is handled by the firewall.Great, so look at the firewall right? Not really, because my company thought it would be a good idea to hire a managed firewall solution prior to me being hired. Working with those guys is like sticking needles in your eyes. They are slow to respond, and they are so concerned with coveri...
Great Geocaching Alternative to C:GEO
2011-11-14 09:00:00
It's been a while since I've posted about one of my favorite past times which is Geocaching. Geocaching, if you didn't already know, is a sport or game where someone hides a container somewhere in the world, then posts the coordinates to the container on a website like or People like me try to find these containers using GPS enabled devices. I prefer to find my caches using my HTC Evo Android phone.When I first started Geocaching, I was using my Palm Pre, and the Geocaching app for the Pre sort of sucked. When I got my Android, I discovered C:GEO and my life changed. It was a free app, but had many of the features available in the official app by Groundspeak which costs about $10.What's the deal then? Well, a while back the original developer of C:GEO stopped working on it, and turned his code over the the community, and C:GEO Opensource was born. Well, in my opinion, that version sucks.

Even Better Free Alternative To Ultramon
2011-10-06 09:00:00
A few weeks ago I wrote a post about a free alternative to the multi-screen manager called Ultramon. If you haven?t read that post, I talk about a free tool called Zbar. Right after that post a co-worker of mine told me about another tool that I actually think is way better. His tool is open source, and is designed for use with Windows 7 and Windows Vista only. His is a little more simple than Zbar though as it only provides an additional taskbar for your monitor. This task bar is better than Zbar?s though as it seamlessly blends in with whatever theme you are running in Windows. In that respect it is more like Ultramon?s task bar. The tool is called Dual Monitor Taskbar. Here are some features: Taskbar on the second monitor Pinned programs Aero support Window manager Mirror mode Auto-Hide Notification area Start Button (BETA) For me, that is the biggest thing I like about Ultramon. I just can?t stand multiple monitors without a taskbar on them....
Free Alternative To Windows Live Movie Maker
2011-10-03 09:00:00
I like Windows Live Movie Maker. Sure, it's not as good as the original Movie Maker, and has been scaled way down, but it's still good for quick and simple little videos for home or the blog. For podcasts I prefer something a little more robust like Sony Vegas Pro, but I don't always need to do so many fancy edits. The thing I love about Windows Live Movie Maker is that you can render your files in HD natively which is nice because most cheap video cameras film in at least 720P HD these days. Other times Windows Live Movie Maker kind of sucks. For instance, the other day I loaded a 3gp video I took from my Android phone, and Live Move Maker stripped the sound off for no reason. Weird. Some times you want to have multiple audio layers, and you can't with Live Move Maker. Maybe you want to do some cool Chroma keying. Nope, not going to happen in Movie Maker. There is a really cool alternative though, and it's free for personal use. It's called VideoPad Video Editor! VideoPad...
Alternative to Windows File Copy
2011-09-29 09:00:00
I absolutely hate the built in file copy manager in Windows. I have for a long time. It doesn?t have a very good interface for showing progress, especially if you are copying multiple files. Plus if you are copying files over the network, and you run into a slight network hiccup, you have to start all over? Why? because the built in file copier for Windows doesn?t allow you to resume file copy. There has been a tool that I?ve used for a while now that is fairly popular, yet I am surprised by how many people still haven?t heard of it. It?s called TeraCopy from CodeSector. When you install it, it automatically replaces the built in file copier from Windows, and immediately makes your file copying life easier! Here is a list of features from their page: Copy files faster. TeraCopy uses dynamically adjusted buffers to reduce seek times. Asynchronous copy speeds up file transfer between two physical hard drives. Pause and resume file transfers. Pause copy process at an...
RIM Launches Torch 9860 In India Another High- End Alternative In The Black
2011-09-22 13:12:00
While Research In Motion (RIM) may not have had the best Quarterly Results, they are busy refreshing their lineup to keep up with the industry. They recently updated their BBM to v6 for all devices, and are now announcing a new handset. In a Mumbai event yesterday, the Blackberry Torch 9860 was announced. Based on the Blackberry OS7, an upgrade to OS6 found in current high end devices, it will retail for Rs. 28,490/- Here are the specs of this new device: Refreshed BB OS7 3.7″ Display 1.2GHz Processor 5MP Camera with 720P HD Recording 1230mAh Battery The new all-touch design is similar to what other handset makers like HTC and Apple have been making since 2008. Its display is the largest ever on a Blackberry smartphone. Web browsing too is said to be up to 40% faster than current devices with an advanced WebKit browser.

Free Alternative To Ultramon
2011-09-22 09:00:00
I have been using dual-monitors since I got into IT. I have used them so long that it's hard to go back to a single monitor. On my home computer I only have a single monitor, but my wife mainly uses that one anyway. One of these days I'll introduce her to the power of multiple displays as well. Back to the point though, I've been using dual monitors for a very long time, and almost that entire time I haven't been able to use them without a lovely little utility called Ultramon. The only problem with Ultramon is that it is not free. True, it's only a nominal $40 to use, but I prefer to use freeware when I can. The only viable free alternative the the over-priced Ultramon that I have found is called Zbar. What I like about both Ultramon and Zbar is that they both provide additional task bars for your multiple screens, and allow you to control the wallpaper for multiple screens. Want a different picture for both screens? Boom, you got it! Want one giant picture stretched acros...

Ron Thal: alternative matter... three part interview
2011-04-30 17:19:00
"Haha, I could talk all day about this. The thing is that I?m not talking about the METALLICA's and U2?s of this world, but about guys who are trying to get their first bands together and getting their music out there. It?s about delivering the music to people in the best possible way and have a future in doing that. It?s geared towards those kind of people. Where to begin? It?s really simple. Fifteen years ago when I started putting out albums you still had all the big gatekeepers like labels and distro. There was a lot of money being allocated to promote albums and making people aware of their existence. This was before the time the internet got big. The only way to do it was through hellishly expensive ads in magazines and you didn?t get the worldwide coverage you get nowadays because of internet. If you wanted to get some visibility in a record store you had to pay 500 dollars each month on one location to have it in the listening booth. That really adds up and could wipe you o...
Ron Thal: Alternative Matters interview
2011-04-30 15:03:00
Another remarkable thing is that you releasing those songs in different formats. What?s the deal on that? I didn?t want to release a bare mp3 on iTunes and leave it at that. I wanted to do something different, so I asked people on my forum what they wanted and they came up with lots of ideas. So I decided to release different versions of each song. For guitarists I have the so-called ?player pack?, it has transcriptions on the lead guitar parts, which features the notes, picking and all that kind of stuff along with some remixes to accommodate that. Transcribing the songs was actually the most difficult part. I?m a big a studio geek, so I came up with a special ?producer pack? for people who like to to play producer. It features all the different elements used in the song, so people can put in their multi-track software and create their own mix. You can make your own Bumblefoot remix. Nice!
