It's been a long time since I've found games as addictive as these two 8bit-side-scrollers for iOS.

If you're looking to edit your JPG files with Adobe's Camera Raw app, here's what you need to do:
In Photoshop, select the File menu, then Open as...
Make sure you select the Camera Raw file type and then browse for the file:
You should get the Camera Raw dialog box from there
I have a consolidated inbox (or universal inbox) and love that I only have to check one email address for both work and personal emails. However, this also means that my account is filling up fast. Lately, I've been using the query below to find large emails that are older than a specific date so that I can download the attachments and move them into Dropbox for safekeeping.
For example, to find all emails larger than 1 MB and older than a year
To change the way Winamp displays songs in your playlist, go to Winamp's preferences, then select "Titles" in the list on the left. You'll notice the section titled "Advanced Title Formatting".
I personally like using this (which also handles songs with no Metadata reasonably well):
$if(%albumartist% - , %albumartist% - , [%artist% - ])$if(%title%,['['%album%[ #$num(%tracknumber%,2)]'] ']%title%,$filepart(%filename%).$fileext(%filename%))
Which displays like this:
Or go over to the full Advanced Title Formatting reference and make your own.
Ifttt is a really handy tool for creating simple triggers that set off actions or tasks. It works off of what ifttt calls "channels" (a particular date & time, Foursquare, Facebook, Flickr, and Evernote are a few examples)
You might find that the "if this, then that" is a bit too simple for certain things you would like to do - I would have loved to see a little more complexity involved. For example, "if this and this, then that".
Here are a couple of examples:
- When your Facebook profile picture changes, update your Twitter profile picture as well
- Post to Facebook at midnight, January 1st (or any other time)
- Starred items in Google Reader -> Evernote
- If it's raining tomorrow, send me an email
- If you're tagged in a photo on Facebook, send it to Dropbox
- If photo is uploaded to Instagram, send it to Dropbox
- Flickr-favourites to Dropbox
- Archive all your Facebook statuses to Evernote
Ifttt is in beta at the moment, and it's free to sign up - but I don't suspect it will stay that way for very long.
Anyways, you might as well try it yourself and start making your own recipes: ifttt
That being said, I have to say I'm a big fan of Yahoo! Pipes, and I haven't been able to find an alternative that's as good.
The name is derived from the Unix pipe where simple commands can be combined together to create output that meets your needs.
So here's a very simple example: let's say you have a specific RSS feed (in this example, the Guardian football RSS feed) you like - but you're only interested in very specific news (in this example, we only want content relating to Liverpool FC).
Go to Yahoo! Pipes and create a new pipe. Then add the RSS feed as input:
Click on the input-box and you should be able to see a preview of what the input is like:
Under the 'Operators' menu on the left, drag a 'filter' module into your pipe, add some rules and then connect the boxes together:
Click on the 'pipe output' box to see a preview of the new output:
Once you've saved your pipe, click on 'Run pipe' and get the output's RSS feed address:
I'm curious to see how others use Yahoo! Pipes - leave a comment if you think of something.
