Warner Bros. iOS games on sale for 99 cents

If you're big into Superman, Batman, and Harry Potter, it's time to start searching the couch cushions for loose change.
Bastion for iOS is a gorgeous-looking action-RPG, and for a short while it's on sale for just 99 cents.
Got plans for the Fourth of July weekend? If they involve long car rides, lines you can't escape, or just lots of couch/hammock/poolside time, consider stocking up on games for your iDevice. Warner Bros. will help keep you entertained on the cheap.
Ending soon, 11 Warner Bros. iOS games are on sale for 99 cents each. Here's the list, with links either to the download page or to related CNET coverage. (Be sure to note the system requirements before purchasing any game, as some of them won't work on older iOS devices.)
Bastion, top-rated indie action-RPG, regularly $4.99.
Batman Arkham City Lockdown, Infinity Blade-esque fighting game, regularly $5.99.
Harry Potter: Spells, multiplayer spell-casting game, regularly $2.99.
Lego Batman: DC Superheroes, the first non-Harry Potter Lego game for iOS, regularly $4.99.
Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4, an iOS port of the popular console title, regularly $4.99.
Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7, an iOS port of the popular console title's sequel, regularly $4.99.
Man of Steel, new-movie tie-in heavy on the combat, regularly $2.99.
Man of Steel HD, same game for iPad, regularly $4.99.
Midway Arcade, classic arcade games revived for iOS, regularly $1.99.
Scribblenauts Remix, a Nintendo DS classic that my kids are still playing two years later, regularly $4.99.
Tapper World Tour HD, the classic arcade game beautifully recreated for iPad, regularly $1.99.
There's plenty of good stuff here to choose from, but if I could scrounge up only a buck, I'd have to spend it on Bastion, which is just crazy-fun. But the Lego games are all great as well, and the Batman and Superman games will definitely satisfy your superhero bloodlust.
I don't know how long these prices will be in effect, so if you're looking to stock up on the cheap, don't wait. What title(s) do you think you'll grab during the sale?

How to boot directly to the desktop in Windows 8.1

The Windows 8 Start screen is a good starting point for Windows 8 devices with touch screens, but on PCs with standard screens, you might prefer to boot directly to the desktop. Previously, you could bypass the Windows 8 Start screen with Start8, but Windows 8.1 now lets you do it natively. Here's how:
Step 1: Right-click on the Windows 8.1 taskbar, then choose Properties.
Step 2: Click on the Navigation tab, then under the Start screen section, check the box next to "Go to the desktop instead of Start when I sign in."

The next time you boot Windows 8.1, you'll go straight to the desktop without ever seeing the Start screen.

Get two free months of Next Issue unlimited digital magazines

Slowly but surely, Next Issue is getting better.
The service slings unlimited digital magazines to your tablet (or Windows 8-powered PC) for a flat monthly rate, and its catalog is closing in on 100 titles (quite a jump from the 40 or so it offered when it first launched about a year ago).
Haven't tried it yet? Now's your chance to double the usual test-drive deal: StackSocial is offering a two-month Next Issue Premium subscription for free. Normally that would run you $30.
Let me get one big caveat out of the way right now: This offer is for new customers only.
Next Issue is available in app form for Android, iPad, and Windows 8. (Alas, it's still not available for Kindle Fire or Nook HD.) I've tried it on all three platforms, though most of my real-world usage happens on my iPad 3. Android users will be glad to know there's now parity with the iOS version, meaning you should be able to get the full catalog of available magazines. As for Windows 8, I must admit I…

Quickly fix Dropbox permissions errors in OS X

Dropbox is one of the more popular cloud-based syncing and storage tools, and offers Mac users a convenient way to transfer files from one system to another, or share files with colleagues. Dropbox can sometimes give you errors, saying that it cannot transfer something because it does not have permission to access some of the files being copied. If this happens, then it could be because of an improper permissions setup with the Dropbox configuration files in your account, or with the files currently being copied. If a permissions error such as this occurs, then the first thing that might come to mind is to use Disk Utility's Permissions Fix routine. But this only affects access permissions on system files and installed applications, and will not touch files in your user account. Holding the Option key in the Account section of the preferences will show the "Fix Permissions" option, instead of the standard option to unlink the current computer.) Instead, for Dropbox-spec…
