How To Pay With Your PayPal Balance On Sites That Don’t Accept It - http://www.makeuseof.com/tag...
I’m at a point in my Internet-obsessed life where PayPal is the preferred payment method that I choose to pay for just about anything. If you’re a self-employed person who works online and from home, I can imagine you being in a similar predicament. PayPal is convenient and easy to use. You can pay for anything with PayPal. However, there are a whole lot of places to shop online that don’t seem to be as crazy about PayPal as I am. Amazon is a good (and unfortunate) example. They don’t accept payments via PayPal. However, there’s a crafty little maneuver... Read the full article: How To Pay With Your PayPal Balance On Sites That Don’t Accept It

Apple Free Recycling Program Now Covers Every Retail Store Around The Globe
Apple has just reiterated that it is committed to its green initiative and recycling. The company announced that every Apple retail store around the world will take back Apple products for recycling. Apple also has a gift card program for used iPhones, iPads and Macs deemed good enough to be resold (as determined by the PowerOn reseller service) in the U.S. Products that couldn’t be re-used didn’t get the gift cards, but were instead responsibly recycled for free. Apple also took in computers from other brands under this scheme. Now, in the latest update, Apple has covered all its products under...

Four Places To Find Your Windows 8 Product Key - http://www.makeuseof.com/tag...
Windows 8 and 8.1 PCs no longer have a Certificate of Authenticity (CoA) sticker with their product key printed on it. This helps prevent theft — people can’t just glance at a sticker on your laptop to get your Windows product key. On the other hand, you can’t simply look at a sticker on your Windows PC when you reinstall the operating system. You’ll have to find the 25-digit product key elsewhere. Having your product key is necessary if you want to download Windows 8 or 8.1 installation media from Microsoft. Their downloads require a valid product key. It’s also...

Blur Wars: Google's Camera App vs. The iPhone 5S And A Real Camera - http://readwrite.com/2014...
You know when a photo has that fuzzy background thing going on and the subject is sharp while the rest looks all dreamy? That technique, usually achieved by setting a camera’s controls to a wide aperture—the smaller the f-stop number, the bigger the aperture—remains one of the easiest shortcuts to a photo that makes people go ooh. Not one to stand by tradition, Google just released a camera app for Android that does exactly the same thing—except you can adjust the focus and that dreamy blur effect after you take the picture. Ooh. Can Free Software Mimic Expensive Hardware? The feature is called "Lens Blur,” and it’s built into the new Google Camera app, available in the Play store for Android. Android’s impressive in-house photo software (though not always superior optics) have been more robust than those in iOS for a while, likely thanks to Google’s 2012 acquisition of the excellent photo app Snapseed. Lens Blur pulls off a qualitatively similar trick to the one that earned the Lytro...

HBO Is Coming To Amazon—And You Don't Need To Be A HBO Subscriber - http://readwrite.com/2014...
Amazon on Wednesday announced a licensing agreement with HBO, which will bring a number of premium shows to Amazon’s Prime Instant Video Service and bring the HBO Go mobile app to the company’s new Fire TV set-top streaming box, which was announced and released earlier this month. "As owners of our original programming, we have always sought to capitalize on that investment. Given our longstanding relationship with Amazon, we couldn't think of a better partner to entrust with this valuable collection," said HBO's Glenn Whitehead, executive vice president of business and legal affairs, in a press release. "We're also excited to bring HBO GO to Amazon's Fire TV. The features like unified voice search will provide a compelling experience for HBO customers." Starting May 21, HBO will deliver several original series to Amazon Prime subscribers, although most of the series are on the older side: The collection includes The Wire, Six Feet Under, The Sopranos, Enlightened, Treme and early...

Mailbox is one of the more popular ways for users to keep track of their never-ending inbox on iOS, aside from Apple’s default mail client, of course. The popular email application has just received a new update that has some really useful features like Dropbox sync and an auto-swipe feature that actually learns the patterns of a user and makes mundane tasks automatic. This is the update that sends the mail client to version 2.0, which is when we see a big shift in version number, like this one, we expect some big changes to come along with it. While Mailbox...

My Fish Just Sent Me A Text Message - http://readwrite.com/2014...
The Internet of Things makes it easy for us to monitor our homes. Today I’m taking that concept one step further—getting our homes to report back to us. In early March, I wrote about using Raspberry Pi to quantify my fish tank—in short, I taught the $35 single-board computer to monitor the temperature of my home aquarium no matter where I was in the apartment. Of course, the limitations of this project were clear: I could only keep tabs on the tank while on my home network. What if I want my fish to text me when it needs my assistance? See also: The Quantified Fish: How My Aquarium Uses Raspberry Pi The problem, until now, was that getting the Raspberry Pi to initiate communication was hard. I experimented with a Node.js receiving application, and contemplated buying a server from which to run it (since my Bluehost server space doesn’t support a Node installation). The other way to get the Raspberry Pi to talk to me was to teach it to text my phone. There are also many ways to achieve...

There’s no straightforward way to quickly hide or reveal hidden files on Mac OS X as there is on Windows – but hide and seek on a Mac is not a particularly hard game to play. Using a few simple Terminal commands you can quickly hide secrets and reveal system files, as well as seeing what other hidden files and folders have been cluttering up your Mac over the years. It’s Terminal time. Marking Files As Hidden On Windows, you can simply right click on a file and check a box to hide it. This is easily defeated by forcing...
