Free Photoshop CS6 Training? Yes Please!
You really can’t argue with free stuff, whether it’s software, services or “other,” but you especially can’t argue with free education. The nice (and disgustingly talented, I might add) people over at 3D Buzz have put together a set of free Photoshop CS6 training videos, complete with supplementary files, which you can download right now. The series covers the essentials of Photoshop CS6, so they’re very friendly for noobies.

Build a Windows 8 App using free tools provided by Microsoft
Microsoft appears to be taking a different route than Apple when it comes to creating and selling apps. When Apple’s app store first opened, I (and probably you) spent hours going through apps, looking at the free ones, the ones that were replacements for websites/tools I already used, games for myself, apps to occupy my daughter…. well, just about everything. And while, at first, it seemed like most of these apps were made by big companies, I slowly discovered there were a lot of independent publishers out there. You probably know a few – the friend of a friend who made an app, naively hoping to strike it rich. For me, it was my cousin Andy, who released a few apps under Smooth Landon, while other creations of his were rejected. My personal favorite was probably a bobble-head Obama, which Apple rejected for being a negative caricature of a politician, or some other ridiculous crap. But I digress…. while Apple’s apps reach millions of users, the Metro / Modern UI apps for Windows 8 will hit a much, much larger audience. And Microsoft wants to teach you how to build a Windows 8 app – for free.
Yes, free. Microsoft has released everything you need to make your own Metro / Modern UI style app for Windows 8. All of the tools, and even the developer’s license, are available for free. Keep reading to find out how and where to get them.

A few weeks ago Microsoft announced a new deal for Xbox 360. For $99 upfront and $15 a month, the Microsoft Store offered an Xbox 360 4GB Kinect system, including 2 years of Xbox Live. Today, Microsoft announced that by the end of this month the program will extend to all US Best Buy locations and “select” Gamestop locations.
I guess that means it’s something of a success so far, or why bother extending the program’s reach? Hit the source link for details.

Previously we’ve done a review of Iobit’s excellent freeware product “Advanced System Care Free,” and recommended it whole heartedly. For the next few days, though, they’re offering the PRO version for free, in celebration of the product’s five year anniversary. Now, there’s nothing wrong with the free version, but let’s face it: if you can get the Pro version for the same free price, don’t you sort of owe it to yourself?
