You Can Now Install Popcorn Time for iOS from Your Mac



iOS/Mac: In an odd move, the original version of the non-jailbreak version of Popcorn Time required a Windows computer to install it. Thankfully, Mac users can get in on the fun now with a new Mac installer. Popcorn Time allows you to stream movie torrents as they download.

The Avengers-Themed Workspace

If you’re a fan of the Avengers (movie and/or comics), you might also appreciate today’s featured workspace, which sports some awesome accessories.

The workspace belongs to a 30-year-old engineer in Taiwan, and the rest of this bachelor pad is impressive as well. It has an industrial look while still managing to be welcoming and warm. The workspace can be enclosed with sliding panels:

But why would you want to hide Captain America’s shield, Hulk smashing through the wall, and the other superhero decorations?

Check out the Homedit link below for more shots of this apartment.

If you have a workspace of your own to show off, share them with us by adding it to our Lifehacker Workspace Show and Tell Flickr pool. Make sure any photos you include are at least 640x360. Keeping them to 16:9 helps, too! Include a little text about the stuff you used, how you came up with the design, and any other relevant details. If your clever organization and good design sense catches our eye, you might be the next featured workspace.

Ribbon and Chain Wrap Bracelet
Full Tutorial: www.theribbonretreat.com/blog/vintage-ribbon-and-chain-wrap-bracelet.html

Materials:
-Hug Snug or Vintage Style Ribbon
-Open Chain – enough to wrap loosely around your wrist three times
-Small pearls and head pins – 12 of each
-Lobster Clasp
-Needle and Thread to match Ribbon
-Large embroidery needle

Thread the end of the ribbon through the embroidery needle. Thread the ribbon through the links of the chain, moving over and under the links as you go.

Continue threading the ribbon through the chain until you are about 4″ from the end of the chain. Pull the ribbon through so there is a section about 10″ at the end of the ribbon. Cut the other end of the ribbon 1″ longer than the chain. Fold the ribbon around to the back side of the chain and sew to itself.

Feed the ribbon through the end of the chain that is left, pulling the ribbon so there is a 10″ piece to match the other end. Tie the two long pieces of ribbon into a bow.

Cut the other end of the ribbon 1″ longer than the chain and fold to the back. Stitch as before.
Add all of your little beads to the head pins and form loops at the top.

Open up the loops above the beads and add them all along the chain.

Open the chain at one end of the bracelet and add a lobster clasp.

To close the bracelet, loop it three times and attach the lobster clasp to the open ring at the other end of the chain.
