News! An update is in progress...

James M Singleton takes point-and-shoot camera snapshots of major changes in Downtown Pittsburgh which can include construction, restorations and renovations; along with updates from the Pittsburgh Cultural District.


Here are James' latest updates of the Tower at PNC Plaza, Gardens at Market Square and the Pittsburgh Cultural District.

During June, no major under-the-hood work on this webpage was done. Pittsburgh Cultural District updates in the summertime are time-consuming.

James has been testing FOSS (Free and Open Source Software) that could replace the now defunct Windows Media Center.

Windows Media Center is currently being used to watch over-the-air television.

James is not testing the Windows 10 Technical Preview at this time because of an upgrade to this web page.

Downtown Pittsburgh images are being enlarged to 1200px by 675px and there will be many additions, deletions and updates during the Summer of 2015.

James M Singleton is a Microsoft Windows enthusiast that tests FOSS (Free and Open Source Software) to find the best free applications to date.

The only software that you should pay for is for the latest operating system of your choice with the exception of Linux (Free).

It is okay to buy that pro version of a fully-functional freeware program that you really like.

Downtown Pittsburgh Update is a platform for James M Singleton to test the latest browser advances with HTML5 and CSS3 while entertaining viewers interested in the Pittsburgh area.

Links have been enlarged to the desktop version to make them more touch-friendly.

Downtown Pittsburgh Update will always be in beta and can change at any time.
