Internet Explorer 9 Icon by Misaki20091 Diff IE Add on for Internet Explorer

Microsoft Research have released an Internet Explorer Add-On that lets you play “Spot the difference” with websites.

Diff-IE is a prototype Internet Explorer Add-on that:

  • Highlights the changes to a page since the last time you visited it
  • Allows you to view – and compare – previously cached versions of a page

When changes are made obvious, especially the subtle and unexpected ones, you get a whole lot more out of the web pages you visit.

Spotify and Grooveshark: Get Free Music – legally

sVSg Spotify and Grooveshark: Get Free Music legallyI’ve stopped buying music.

Now hold on, before you jump to any wrong conclusions – I don’t illegally download it either. I rent it … sort of.

These day it seems, the music industry are doing what they can to make it harder for honest people to get the music they want (and according to some, encouraging them to “steal”). Some smart people have come up with a great solution: Legal Streaming. Almost with the industry’s blessing.

There are several online solutions for streaming music legally – but in my book there are only two worth checking out: Spotify and Grooveshark. Both of which give you all the music you can ever listen too, free (ad-supported) and legal. Both also provides a paid service without ads and commercial breaks.

Mini Review.

Over the last 18 weeks, we’ve released 16 wallpaper packs—each with 50 wallpapers*. In this post, we recap these collections and provide links to them all. Have fun finding a new desktop wallpaper!

Update: Check out the second and third collection of 800 wallpapers.

*One of the wallpaper sites we usually link to has changed its design and is now riddled with ads. Because of this, I’ve removed all links to this site, which takes the number slightly lower than 800.
