CodySafe app launcher gives PortableApps suite some competition (Download Squad)

May 3rd 2009 8:22PM Just wondering if the decision to block USB Autoplay (only option is to browse the folder) in Windows 7 will render these launchers useless?

Google turbo-charges mobile GMail engine, updates interface (Download Squad)

Apr 14th 2009 2:33AM I guess it's a good thing - but what I really want is an option to completely disable Google's replacing pages (that you access via links in emails) with it's own light/mobile version. I just want to load the original page as if I was on a PC - I have enough downloads - and most of the time I have to find the info I need on Page X/Y, so it takes just as long(if not longer) to find what I need anyway).

I've also found the the PC version of Gmail.com has become very slow over the past 2 months or so. This occurs on multiple computers, multiple gmail accounts, various networks, etc. I go to click on the Spam folder, for instance, and nothing happens. I have to refresh the entire page and start over.

7 desktop pranks for April Fools Day shenanigans (Download Squad)

Apr 1st 2009 8:28PM I find it easier to use a simple app I made in VB

It's completely transparent and fills the whole screen. Users try to click on icons that they can see - but they're actually clicking on an empty Form of this app. The app doesn't show in the taskbar or anything. The only thing the user can do is press Alt+F4 or Alt-Tab, etc. I was too nice/lazy to block those keys from functioning. It's heaps quicker executing a tiny app than making all those changes listed above. I like you're thinking though, esp Jordan :)

Anything to stop someone from pressing PrntScrn and opening MSPaint?

Microsoft shows off Windows 7 touch features (Download Squad)

Yay - someone listened to my idea (I suppose someone else in the world had the same idea, but 'yay' nonetheless).

Moogis: Would you pay $125 to stream live concerts online? (Download Squad)

Mar 22nd 2009 10:48PM Some bands release their concerts on DVD - and the cost is nowhere near that much, and you can keep it forever, and not use up all your Internet bandwidth for the current month.

The concept is good, but the price is simply way too high. Maybe sell HiDef versions for ~$50 and normal quality versions for $20-$25.

New machine installs: the story so far (Download Squad)

Mar 11th 2009 9:22PM Are you STILL building this laptop? - man that is slow :)

'Testing software' doesn't sound like the best way to keep your PC lean - maybe you should find yourself a good disk defragger app

Muziic media player streams audio from YouTube - for now (Download Squad)

Mar 11th 2009 8:35PM Putting ads in a music player... don't we have our media players minimized as small as possible when playing music anyway? It's normally a background thing - nowhere to show ads. Maybe it can stay free if you agree to them sending you spam emails once a week containing the ads. :o)

Bad idea

File sharing service DivShare isn't dead yet (Download Squad)

Feb 26th 2009 6:20PM I used to use MyBloop.com - but it's uploader is so troublesome, so now I've got a free account at Adrive.com

Feb 25th 2009 6:36AM Still using Comodo IC here - working great.

If I ever get a computer put on my desk with loads of nasties on it I usually turn to Malwarebytes' Anti-malware to clean it up first as well

More than once I've felt the urge to tell some computer novice in a shop to put down the expensive AV software box and go get something free. I find the that 'commercial' versions are usually the most resource intensive.
