Plus SSD and AVR Deals from The Wirecutter. Atari Arcade brings old school games to your browser. Linux podcatcher recommendation? We've got tips for boosting battery life on Android phones!
You know, Apple isn't the only company that cuts off old handsets from new OS updates... In Windows Phone Team: This is No Way to Treat Early Adopters Paul Thurrott points out that, "almost exactly one month after the Windows Phone 8 release and over 5 months after it was announced, Microsoft has never really publicly discussed Windows Phone 7.8 again nor has it hinted at when it might be released."
We love it when y'all send in tips: Kazi's suggests you "use Firemin to reduce Mozilla Firefox RAM usage to a minimum. That is... from 200+ MB to around 5 MB." Thanks Kazi!
We love it when y'all send in tips! Ryan says, "Just pointing out that Google reinstated their custom size image search! They took it out but now it's finally back, so let the people know they can resume their wallpaper hunting and creative searching!"
Scott says, "Check out this new iPhone case, it's perfect for Patrick, the good folks at HardOCP found it" Scott's talking about TaskLab's Task One multi-tool case for the iPhone! (You can't but it yet, they just started raising funds on IndieGoGo. (Hey, looks like this is the second multitool iPhone case!)
We all survived Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but The Wirecutter is still posting some of the good, bad, and just plain awesome deals they've found on the interwebs. Watch the video for some of their "holy crap" items... from Rotary Tools to AV Receivers, SSDs and Audyssey computer speakers !
If you're looking to kill some time, old skool style, head on over to the Atari Arcade, this week's "Website We Just Can't Get Enough of!" ! This site is run by Atari, and you can play any number of their OG games, like LunarLander, Centipede, Pong, Super Breakout, etc. Most of the games have a single player or multiplayer mode, and they're even touch capable with Internet Explorer on a Windows 8 tablet, which is pretty cool!
Shawn writes, "I'm in desperate need of a podcast manager for Ubuntu. My current setup is rebooting into Windows, using iTunes to download all my podcasts" ...and it gets worse from there! We're wondering why Shawn isn't using gPodder! Maybe we're missing something... email email@example.com with your suggestions!
Thomas needs to add some battery life to his Android phone. He writes, "My brand new Galaxy S3 runs out of battery power really fast. I've tried using Advanced Task Manager but it doesn't seem to help all that much. Do you have any other ideas?" We do! First up, Task Managers usually won't help with battery issues...and they can sometimes even hurt your battery-life. (Just ask PCWorld) Want to know what to do to max out battery life on your phone? Watch the video!
One last thing before we go... Danny from Tyler, TX writes, "Can you review the Nest Thermostat?" Just so happen that Veronica's using one at home. Watch the video to see if she gives it the thumbs up or down!
