Farewell, Internet (Download Squad)

Apr 12th 2011 12:13PM We will really miss your posts. :[

Android 3.0 Honeycomb ported to Nexus One (Download Squad)

Feb 21st 2011 11:02AM The N1 still hasn't received the Gingerbread update it, has it? Being a flagship Android device, you'd expect Google to give it some extra love.

Facebook now the most-visited website in the world (Download Squad)

Dec 30th 2010 1:07PM The screenshot says "Data is based on U.S. visits...". ???

Adobe Flash Player 10.2 beta brings greater hardware acceleration (Download Squad)

Dec 1st 2010 8:21AM What is that button next to the 'close' button in the screenshot? Never seen it before.

Defend against Firesheep by surfing securely with HTTPS (Download Squad)

Oct 27th 2010 11:26AM Settings up that SOCKS proxy thing isn't exactly easy, but you can get nearly same security with a VPN service. The popular ones, like VyprVPN or Astrill, are not free (still cheap at $4-6 a month), but there are some good free ones like ProXPN and Security KISS.

FreeApps lets you install a ton of quality free applications at once (Download Squad)

Aug 12th 2010 2:19PM Does it cut out the crap from the software installers, like Ninite does? I much prefer FreeApps' collection myself, but Ninite's ability to keep toolbars and other junk at bay is magical.

What are DownloadSquad's favorite Gmail Labs features? (Download Squad)

Jul 6th 2010 2:03AM I can't find it. There are these tabs under settings - general, labels, accounts, filters, forwarding and pop/imap, chat, web clips, and labs. No themes.

What are DownloadSquad's favorite Gmail Labs features? (Download Squad)

Jul 5th 2010 4:22PM Google Apps Mail doesn't have themes. I so want it to have themes. :|

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

Jun 11th 2010 12:19PM This is like Diaspora all over again. A great idea, but something the unnerdy herd will not dig into. Heck, a ton of my friends don't understand Dropbox either, and it's like one of the simplest services you can find out there.

I'm excited of course. Lets see what's on offer. :)

Miro claims first VP8 / WebM video converter (Download Squad)

May 22nd 2010 5:52AM I tried converting a 700MB AVI file to Web8 format, and it took 54 minutes to get to 5%. Talk about #epicfail. I think it's an extremely rudimentary implementation at the moment, although it'll only get better from now. :)
