Sunspots 534

Things I have recently spotted that may be of interest to someone else: 
 

The Arts: Relevant has some questions for us to ask ourselves before we watch an R-rated show.



Computing: Gizmo's Freeware has an annotated list of the best free Windows apps, in several categories.


Gizmo's also tells you how to hide the live tiles in Windows 10. The article also tells about a program that restores the Windows 7 interface to Windows 10.



Gizmo's has begun to rate for-pay items. They have rated the best Virtual Private Network (VPN) services. In case you haven't heard of VPNs, you should have. They shield you from, say, someone hacking into your motel's network (or the one at your home or business).



From Windows Secrets: How to make the lithium-ion batteries in most modern information appliances last for years (and how not to!)



Humor: (Sort of) FiveThirtyEight examines people's behavior when they split a check for a meal. Interesting.


Science: Wired reports on a giant starfish that can catch fish.
 
In a photo, Wired also demonstrates that crystallized DNA is beautiful.

 
National Public Radio reports on why different animals have different pupil shapes.
