Thunderbird 5 is available online

Mozilla released the 5th version of their popular mail client Thunderbird. The update comes as a major release, more than a year and a half, after its latest version 3.0. Mozilla decided to skip version 4.0 in order to synchronize this product with the latest installment of Firefox. Overall Thunderbird 5.0 comes with an improved email account wizard, a better tab system, and a brand new Add-ons and API Manager.

The improved email account wizard comes with a slightly different approach compared to its former version, following the latest trend present in other similar applications. Now setting up your account has been simplified. You just have to enter your address and password and Thunderbird will try to set your account automatically from its own database.

Thanks to the new tabs system, you can reorder each of them by just drag’n’drop them to another open window. The Add-ons manager is simlar to the one present in Firefox and includes most of the applications there. The basic platform has been improved so that Thunderbird now is much faster at start-up and significantly responsive. Also the stability and security have been also improved dramatically making it a real contender in the battle for the best email client.

See a more vulnerable side of Lara Croft in Tomb Raider 9 Trailer and Gameplay

This time Lara will bleed and suffer as she fights to survive.

It’s no secret that gaming websites were all buzzing about the new Tomb Raider. The game was featured in several gaming magazines and is scheduled for release in the autumn of 2012 for Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

As you can see in the picture, Lara Croft doesn’t look like she did back in 1996 and actually, according to the new information released by Crystal Dynamics, the developers who took the reins in 2006, no she is not.

Tomb Raider 9 Trailer

This new vision of Lara Croft is a more vulnerable and human character than what we’re all use to. According to Spanish magazine Hobby Consolas, Lara Croft will bleed and suffer as she fights to survive. The game is being developed using motion capture technology, which was used in the development of the critically acclaimed crime/thriller video game Heavy Rain), which will allow players to see the pain, anguish, and fear on Lara Croft’s face.

If you’re still expecting this game to be anything like the originals, don’t you’ll just be horribly disappointed or pissed when this new game finally hits stores. This is a complete reboot, whereas the last reboot still held some ties to the past this one will not. It not only reimagines Lara Croft, who will have very little in common with her previous incarnations, but also the game itself. The developers decided to start completely from scratch, and the storyline of this new game will serve as the new background story for the character.

Google unveils its own social network to challenge Facebook

Did you hear about Google introducing its own social network,Google+ ? A project that aims to make online sharing more like real life.

Well, no one can tell if this is going to be a real Facebook challenger but still, if we take a look at Google+, we can admit that is quite a bundle of joy and looks really promising.

Google+ was on trial until now and a pilot team was testing the Social Networking capabilities of this service.

 

Let’s take a look over the introduction video…

Aiming to take advantage of flaws in networking on Facebook, Google said in the past that “Today, the connections between people increasingly happen online. Yet the subtlety and substance of real-world interactions are lost in the rigidness of our online tools. In this basic, human way, online sharing is awkward. Even broken. And we aim to fix it.”

Google said, “We’d like to bring the nuance and richness of real-life sharing to software. We want to make Google better by including you, your relationships, and your interests. And so begins the Google+ project.”

It would offer options of networking, including ‘Circles’ interface for adding friends and sharing ‘what matters, with the people who matter most’ and ‘Hangouts’ interface for group video chat.

If you’re interested and you want to find out more, take a look at the Google+ project website.

Optimize your Internet connection with Auslogics Internet Optimizer

Let’s face it, most of the applications nowadays don’t do what there are meant to do. There are hundreds of so-called Internet accelerators which are unable to offer any improvements regarding this issue. But Auslogics proves the opposite in releasing a free module included in their latest BootSpeed 5 Suite which really shows the difference in your Internet connection while using it.

Auslogics Internet Optimizer is more of an analyzer that scans your computer and shows what you should change instead of giving a false solution through a ‘speed-up’ button that doesn’t do anything. Besides the MTU and RWIN check, the application knows how to interpret and improve several TCP/IP settings, Winsock options, DNS Cache settings and related IE, Firefox and Opera options. In case you want to proceed to a much more hard-core approach, you can manually browse all these suggestions and apply whatever option you want.

Working with so many variables, there are chances that you can actually get a much slower Internet connection. The good news here is that Auslogics included a Rescue Center which can back-up any of your computer’s former state and restore it whenever you want. So don’t be afraid to try out all its options and scenarios.

Auslogics Internet Optimizer is the one that can truly make a difference in your Internet connection or at least it can provide you with enough information to choose the right solution for your low speed connection.

FL Studio heads to iOS with FL Studio Mobile

If you’re one of those guys who like to create their own music (or remixes), then you have probably heard about FL Studio (formerly known as FruityLoops) – the digital audio workstation developed by Belgian company Image-Line Software. Well, great news guys, FruityLoops heads now to iOS with FL Studio Mobile. Well, don’t think that FL Studio Mobile is a port of the Windows version of FL Studio, it is actually a product of a completely separate development team and code.

What I would like to add is that the Mobile version of FL Studio does not support VSTs. This due to the fact that mobile devices don’t have the CPU power to perform the synthesis of VSTs.




To get FL Studio Mobile, just go to the App Store and you can find the proper version for your device:

  • FL Studio Mobile if you have an iPhone/iPod Touch
  • FL Studio Mobile HD if you have an iPad.
