The Internet is a wonderful thing that certainly makes our lives better. However, as with all great things, it can be used also to do harm. One of the nastiest things people do online is revenge.

Picture this: your smartphone is like a book. Every action you take on your phone corresponds to a page inside the book. You want to check your next appointments, you open the book and turn the pages, stopping at the page labeled "Calendar"; you want to make a phone call, you open the book on the page called "Phone". If every page corresponds to an app or feature on your smartphone, then what should correspond to the Table of Contents? Well, the Table of Contents would be the launcher app, the first thing you see when you turn on your smartphone, the central app you use to reach everything else. That first screen of the launcher is called the "Home Screen". Fortunately, the Home Screen is never something standardized and impersonal, but instead it is usually one of the most customizable and personalizable aspects of an Android device. You can add shortcuts to your most frequently used apps to it or you can even have interactive widgets to help you do whatever it is that you most frequently do on your phone (set an alarm, monitor your device's battery consumption or control your music player). In this tutorial, we will teach you how to customize your device's Home Screen, so it fi ts your needs like a glove.

Good Friday, my fellow citizens and welcome to our weekly moment of "The weekend is here and nobody worked a single thing today, anyway". I had to build up some visuals the other day, for that job that I am actually good at, I think. And I went on one of my favorite websites for downloading pictures without paying for them of course. In my defense, they are low res, very low res. I chose about 45 images and I managed to download 7 of them. Because the procedure you need to go through to download those pictures makes you wanna go on Shutterstock and pay. Seriously, what is the most annoying thing on the planet after pop-up ads? Stupid, stupid, stupid captchas. We have some too on our website. :)
