DropUpLoad Makes Short Work of FTPing (Download Squad)

Jul 20th 2008 11:47AM If I would have trusted AVAST a single time, I would only have Windows and no other program lol. The application is sure free of viruses. Just use some online scanner... and get a real anti virus scanner, John ;-)

How to get a custom email address without registering a domain (Download Squad)

Jun 16th 2008 7:56AM Why not writing an article about FreeYourID.com?

90 days absolutely for free, no credit card required.

Get a http://first.last.name web address and mail address like first@last.name for free.

After 90 days IF you want to continue using that service it's around 11 bucks or so for a year.

jimmy@carter.name is better than jimmy27363@mymail.com I think ;-)

Zemanta: it's like cruise control for blogging (Download Squad)

Jun 6th 2008 12:17PM Im using it since a week or so. Never really worked. I'm writing about let's say the iPhone and it suggests me to use Flickr beer photos. Very useless... if it would work it would be a great idea!

Google to launch Gmail labs: Allow you to test beta features (Download Squad)

Jun 6th 2008 1:08AM Anyone knows if its only for the original Gmail? It's enabled on my @gmail.com but not on my Apps account...

Yahoo! Address Book API now open to 3rd party developers (Download Squad)

Jun 4th 2008 5:38PM The only fast online address book that really works. No stupid social networking integration, etc. A+

Wikia Search human powered search engine becomes useful (Download Squad)

Jun 3rd 2008 1:31PM Just deleted your entry, Brad. KIDDING ;-)


Serious... In my opinion some verification - for at !least! the main page (www.someaddress.com) should be done.

Email to webmaster@domain would be a good start point. Only that person can edit (at least) the page.

Right now Wika doesn't make sense because everyone can easily kick competitors out of the index :-(

Adobe launches Acrobat 9 and Acrobat.com online office suite (Download Squad)

Jun 2nd 2008 3:35PM Ben, exactly! That's the thing why I was never able to understand why COMPANIES use hosted products.

If I would own a company I would develop collaboration software OR host collaboratiion software on MY servers and not somewhere else where I cannot control what's happenin with my files. Serious, I wonder how often the "Application hosting companies" copy our files... lol

But we'll see in 10 years when Google (for example) knows people from A-Z.. and people wonder where Google got the info from... ;-)

Adobe launches Acrobat 9 and Acrobat.com online office suite (Download Squad)

Jun 2nd 2008 12:45PM Too bad that their sign up form doesn't really work. Form says my mail address X@XXX.TLD is invalid. Already sent a support request to Adobe... but I never received an answer from Adobe in the past (other questions), so I doubt that I'll ever be able to use this service.

Anyway, just saw that they have a five free-PDF-conversations restriction. Makes this service look very bad, I think. Even if they would only allow ... let`s say ten conversations a day they would sure kick all the free online .doc to .pdf Ghostscript converters out of business lol

But some dreams never come true :-p

Glide unveils new version of web OS (Download Squad)

May 30th 2008 8:49PM Funny idea. I wonder how many more Desktop systems will start until they realize that's it's gonna be the wrong way. What users need is a REAL central place for existing things and not one more Web 2.0 service with new features.

And the most important thing might be a fast system.

Who wants 655 million colors, animation effects and so on.

A real easy-to-use 90% text-based Desktop would be excellent and not an image-overloaded-system in my opinion.
