Tip of the week: Improve your Windows Phone camera with lenses
Lenses, or lens apps, are one of the most interesting advances in Windows Phone 8. These special apps integrate with your smart phone’s camera, giving it new capabilities that don’t require you to hunt and peck around in your app list: Instead, you can access them directly from the camera experience.
Software pick of the week: ModernMix
Stardock's ModernMix lets you run Windows 8 "Metro" apps on the desktop. FINALLY.
Audible pick of the week: The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
The Name of the Wind (Unabridged) by Patrick Rothfuss, narrated by Nick Podehl is a surprisingly good read and stands with "Game of Thrones" as a rare example of good modern fantasy storytelling.
