    WATCH: One of the World's Best Rock Climbers Attempts Redwood Tree Climb
  • Climbing a California Coast Redwood tree from the ground to its lush canopy was a feat never before attempted, which was part of the allure for a guy who conquers mountains with his fingertips. 

     Chris Sharma, 34, is considered one of the world’s best rock climbers, but even for him, ascending a giant Redwood tree was a mind-blowing challenge.

  • If you decide that removing Flash altogether or disabling it until needed is impractical, there are in-between solutions. Script-blocking applications like Noscript and ScriptSafe are useful in blocking Flash content, but script blockers can be challenging for many users to handle.
  • Another approach is click-to-play, which is a feature available for most browsers (except IE, sadly) that blocks Flash content from loading by default, replacing the content on Web sites with a blank box. With click-to-play, users who wish to view the blocked content need only click the boxes to enable Flash content inside of them (click-to-play also blocks Java applets from loading by default).

    I discovered how to work around sites that demand Flash for video. Almost all these sites have HTML5 videos available if you are browsing from an iOS device (which of course has no Flash).

     

    So you merely need to spoof your browser’s User Agent to an iOS device. In Safari on my Mac, enable the Debug menu. Then when you find a page that says Missing Plug-in, go to the Debug menu, choose User Agent>Safari iOS 8.1 – iPad (any iOS device would work). The page will reload and offer an HTML5 video, usually an mp4. Some sites actually have HTTP Live Streaming for live video.

     

    So why aren’t they offering HTML5 video as a FIRST CHOICE? Flash should be a fallback only.

  • Bottom line

      

    What's most impressive about Extensibility in general and widgets in specific is that Apple has set them up to work the same in both OS X and iOS. That involved a lot more work on their part — shortcuts for one system or the other couldn't be exploited — but ultimately consistency is a feature, and that discipline has resulted in a more unified, better framework for both developers and customers.

  • One of the best places to find a deal online is Amazon. However, not everything is the bargain it appears to be. Just as in the offline world, doing a little research pays.

     

    Check out these tips to ensure you're getting a great deal while navigating the virtual aisles at Amazon.

  • Shop the bargain bins

     

    Look for what you want in the bargain bins, found through a link named “Today’s Deals” at the top of every Amazon page.

  • Use a price checker browser plug-in

     

    InvisibleHandDon’t assume that any of the prices are the lowest available anywhere, especially if the seller is a third-party store. We've seen stores on Amazon sell products for as much as twice the retail price, often for products that are outdated or even obsolete.

     

    Check other retailers’ prices, and prices at specialty websites—Best Buy for electronics or Home Depot for tools, for example.

  • MP4 - Computer Definition

      

     A very popular movie format, which is officially Part 14 of the MPEG-4 standard. MP4 files are supported by most software media players and many Blu-ray/DVD players as well. They are a common format for movie downloads, and Blu-ray players with front-panel USB ports are generally capable of playing MP4 movies directly from a USB drive.  Using the .MP4 extension, MP4 files are containers that hold a mix of multimedia objects (audio, video, images, animations, menus, etc.). See MPEG, M4V and MP4 player.

    I learnt about ManageFlitter (MF) way back in 2009 when I quickly hit the ratio limit and didn’t know how to move past it. I see people every day say the same thing who don’t know they can take action! In fact, every few days I tweet out the following:

    At some point after creating a Twitter account you may bump up against various limits or rules that Twitter has in place. These limitations set by Twitter do not discriminate and they apply to all Twitter users.

    We've outlined the most common Twitter limits below.

  • Follow 2 000 Users In Total.

    Once a Twitter user follows 2 000 Twitter accounts in total, a following limit is activated. To continue to follow additional accounts on Twitter, your 'follower to following ratio' must change.

    According to the Twitter help section:

    "If you've reached the account-based follow limit (2,000 users), you'll need to wait until you yourself have more followers before you can follow additional users. Follow limits are system-wide; Support cannot remove or adjust your follow limits."

    Using ManageFlitter you can quickly identify and unfollow Twitter accounts that are spammy, inactive or don't follow you back to help keep you below the 2000 following limit.

  • My fire extinguisher is out of charge and I want to either refill it or buy a new one. Is it better/cheaper to refill it or just buy a new one? (Can I even refill this fire extinguisher?)

  • This is Mophie’s first ever waterproof battery case, so made sense to make it available for the iPhone 6, seeing as though it is one of the biggest selling smartphones at the moment.
