Farewell, Internet (Download Squad)

Apr 12th 2011 7:51PM Sad to see DownloadSquad go. I helped put together the original design when the site came into existence. The creators wanted it to go from a 2-column layout to 3-columns. When I was done and the site went online, I found out that I enjoyed visiting every day and made it one of my frequent visits on the internet. I'll be sad to see DownloadSquad go. Not often do you find sites like this with the kind of coverage it had.

Must-have Firefox 4 add-ons for Chrome and Internet Explorer converts (Download Squad)

Mar 22nd 2011 5:17PM Normally I'd find it hard to believe Mozilla would pay websites to advertise their browser, but Chrome is stealing most of their thunder (and fans) and then I read an article on here that reads like an advertisement.

Both Firefox and Chrome are great browsers, they both have most of the same extensions or functionalities from extensions, and both have exclusive extensions that the other doesn't have. It all really comes down to personal preference.

Google introduces Chrome extension to block search spam (Download Squad)

Feb 14th 2011 4:13PM Until they implement the actual blocking of spamsites in their result listings, I'll continue using DuckDuckGo: http://duckduckgo.com/

The best Google Reader mod becomes a Safari extension (Download Squad)

Jun 12th 2010 2:02PM Another great Google Reader userstyle/extensions for Chrome is called Sublime Reader. Check it out here: https://chrome.google.com/extensions/detail/jbhkdhkngalchoobjfiobbjobnbpfgmg?hl=en

Uvumi builds a community for musicians and fans - Interview + tour (Download Squad)

May 31st 2010 9:41AM A couple already mentioned The Sixty One, an excellent source of good music. However, another fantastic source of great music is WeAreHunted.

http://wearehunted.com/

By default, it lists all the most popular songs that people are talking about (on Twitter, Facebook, Blogs, etc.) There are other options, but the one on the homepage is the best source of what's popular now. You won't find many on the Billboard's Top 50 though, these are actual good songs.

Imaging tip: Bulkr lets you backup your Flickr photos... and more! (Download Squad)

May 14th 2010 12:00AM Flickr probably wasn't the first with the vowel-omission domain name, but it was probably the first for many people based on its meteoric rise in popularity shortly after it opened up to the public. With domains being taken up more and more, people are having to get more creative with their domain names. Flickr was one such inevitable way.

TUAW hands on: the simple joys of Koi Pond (TUAW.com)

Aug 26th 2008 7:13PM I use Koi Pond to show off to anyone 40 years of age or older that have never heard of an iPhone, or very little about it. Koi Pond never fails to impress them, and it's a hit with the kids, too. It's well worth the 99 cents.

Win a bunch of games from Freeverse (TUAW.com)

Aug 22nd 2008 1:19PM Just to clarify, it's now Wingnuts Moto Chaser. It's no longer Moto Racer. Why the name change? Who knows, probably hoping to get away from the bad reviews the game has gotten.

Ask the Readers: iPhone games you can play with your own music? (TUAW.com)

Aug 3rd 2008 2:40PM In all my game reviews on my site, http://fingergaming.com/ - I make it a point to mention whether or not the game lets you play your own music library. Of course, like mentioned above, you can override any game trying to shut down your music by simply pressing the Home button twice.

Some of my favorite to play music to is Labyrinth, Cube Runner, and Galcon.
