Your desktop wallpaper may be something you don’t give much thought to, but whether you have chosen to stick with a stock image, or have adorned your desktop with a photograph of loved ones or a favorite place, this is an image you are going to be seeing on a daily basis. It is easy to become bored of constantly seeing the same image, and being bored is not a mood that is conducive to being productive, whatever you are meant to be doing. Kuvva is a free app that helps to alleviate the boredom by providing you with a new wallpaper every day.

WeVideo delivers free collaborative, browser-based video editing


Despite the relentless coverage we give to the hardware end of the tech world, BetaNews is a software site at its heart, and we are always trying out new software.

Granted, in the last few years this has come to mean something different than it used to.

Grey Areas: Accessing Hulu for free in the age of Hulu Plus

Grey Areas: Accessing Hulu for free in the age of Hulu Plus

By Tim Conneally, Betanews

Hulu Plus Samsung TV

Just two months ago, Hulu launched its premium subscription service Hulu Plus which brings streaming TV content from its popular website to mobile devices and connected TVs and set-top boxes.
