TIP OF THE WEEK

Taking Better Photographs
A typical compact camera tends to use its flash whenever it’s in doubt. The problem with this is that flashes make subjects look harsh and the background dark. Whenever possible turn the flash off, which will give you a more subtle, nuanced picture. This means that the “blur factor” may increase, so be sure to hold the camera as steady as possible.

Facebook Subscriptions
There are some people on Facebook who we might admire and be interested in befriending, but who don’t want anything to do with us. Just because they don’t know us in real life doesn’t mean we’re not lovely people. But there is a way around that now – you can go to their page and (provided their privacy setting allow for it) subscribe to them. This doesn’t make you friends, but it means that their updates will show up in your News Feed.

Lend a Friend a Book on your Nook
Head into your library and find a book that you'd like to let a friend borrow for 14 days free of cost. The book has to say "LendMe" next to it in order to be eligible. Tap LendMe > With Contacts > Select a Contact > Add Contact, then enter their name, e-mail and a short message (we suggest, "If you don't love this book as much as I do, we can't be friends any longer. No pressure"). Then Send the book.

GADGET OF THE WEEK

Hip-thrust Your Way Through Facebook
The LikeBelt has been designed using Near Field Communication as a way to allow people to like anything, or anyone, in the real world. While you’re wearing it you can register Facebook likes by approaching the thing or person and thrusting your hips at it, or them. In theory you could also register check-ins in the same manner. Call me cynical, but I foresee some problems with the concept. Still, it is amusing.
