Google Earth gets flight tracking in as close to real time as legally possible (Download Squad)

Sep 17th 2010 1:29PM I guess you guys don't travel much. I don't think I have ever been on a flight that has landed at the exact time it was scheduled to. Flight delays, and even flights that are ahead of time, plus the ambiguous "15 or 20 minutes" delay in data on Google earth means that we will never truly know where exactly a plane is at any given time.

This ambiguity means that some random group or foreign power can't just shot a missile at the plane based on Google earth information, hence the delay "for security reasons"

Coming soon: an open source Dropbox alternative with collaboration (Download Squad)

Jun 11th 2010 12:32PM It also sounds similar to Windows Live Sync, unless I am missing something. That has not fees either because you just sync between computers and not in the cloud.

Box.net finally gets a desktop sync client (Download Squad)

Jun 10th 2010 3:45PM Yes, as far as I have read this is not available for the free version. Plus I believe the free version only offers 1GB of storage now.

Unamerican.com is one of the best sources for snarky slogans (Download Squad)

May 8th 2010 2:27PM "The guy behind the site calls himself !!!srini!!!, although oddly enough, I could not find a direct reference to his name in the current incarnation of the site."

His name is Srini Kumar and his name is the byline for every post in the 'Blog' section. Just guessing it is the same guy!

WeTransfer makes file transfers not just painless... but kind of enjoyable (Download Squad)

May 7th 2010 6:56PM Malwarebytes wouldn't let me load this site. It blocked it and popped up a message that said the site was potentially malicious. Any one know why?

Have You Noticed That 'Modern Family' Is Oblivious To the Recession? (AOL TV)

Apr 28th 2010 11:05AM Allison, that was just a terrible, terrible article. None of it made any sense. I can only guess that you were still hung over when you checked your emails this morning and realized you needed to write 500 words on Modern Family.

iPhone 4.0 arrives this summer, with multitasking, a game network, and more (Download Squad)

Apr 8th 2010 3:11PM Yeah, because you found not reading an article too difficult. So difficult in fact that you had to comment about it.

Apple decrees death to "cookie-cutter" iPhone apps (Download Squad)

Mar 8th 2010 1:25PM "...why is it up to Apple to decide if there is value there or not?"


Because it is their app store.

DoGooder replaces regular ads with green ones, raises money for nonprofits (Download Squad)

Mar 8th 2010 1:22PM But it isn't the web site that is causing the regular ads to be replaced with 'DoGooder' ads it is the individual web surfers Firefox (or IE, Chrome etc.) add-on that causes that to happen.

The advertisers can't demand that an individual visitor to a site must watch an ad and therefore they can't claim ad fraud on that individual either.
