SkyDrive simple viewer quickly shows your SkyDrive WebDAV paths (Download Squad)

May 17th 2010 4:27PM Lee, you should recommend people that they should check the source code before entering their username and secret password into this unknown third party application.

The time has come for me to say goodbye to Facebook too (Download Squad)

May 17th 2010 4:25PM LMAO... and in a week or two everyone's back on FB because there is no alternative out there.

C'mon... there is NO privacy on the Internet. Your dial-in provider sells your data (address, dns requests, etc.), server providers sell your data, your mail provider sells your mails and so does your favorite social network and your favorite search engine.

So... the only chance for pricacy is to cancel your internet provider contract and lock yourself in a room... or.. hey... just don't post your stupid photos ("me drunk", "sally cheating on her bf", etc.) and don't write personal status messages, etc.

PS: I expected something neutral by a subsidiary of AOL (DownloadSquad) and not a "see... I delete my account... "...

... just waiting for the "AOL just launched a new social network.. come on guys.. I just signed up. Join me" post ^oo^

Create playlists for events democratically using SongVote (Download Squad)

May 13th 2010 1:12AM Thank you, James.

But what if I don't have friends or only friends who don't want to help? Then a public contest would make more sense, I think. If I create VIP CODE... it means that others need the VIP code to vote. So it's more or less a "private contest".

May 12th 2010 2:48PM Only friends can vote? Didn't find an option like "public voting allowed" :-(

A guide to protecting your information on the New Facebook (Download Squad)

Apr 26th 2010 9:03PM ... and users still give a damn :(

Facebook gets an "I Don't Care" button, via a Google Chrome extension (Download Squad)

Apr 25th 2010 3:30PM Only the 2% of the Internet users (who use Chrome) are able to see that button. And probably only 0.1% of the Chrome users install this extension.

Imagine someone writes: "a member of my family died" and some user is pressing the "I give a damn" button. Very insulting.

And regarding the privacy... all the "i give a damn" clicks are logged on some foreign server (French -> EU?) ... wonderful.

ClearBits is a great place to find legal torrent downloads (Download Squad)

Apr 24th 2010 9:32AM Didn't know that there were more than ten legal software titles available via Torrent :-o

Multi-network chat app Trillian now shields users from NSFW and malicious links (Download Squad)

Apr 16th 2010 10:33AM >> against Rickrolling...does anyone still do that?

Yeah, I wondered about that, too. "Feature" one year too late, I think. LOL

Multi-network chat app Trillian now shields users from NSFW and malicious links (Download Squad)

Apr 16th 2010 10:29AM Well, it's understandable for free users. Basic version is free and people have the choice to say NO to the toolbar and the Outlook addon. That's fair.

But, but they ask PRO users (who paid $25), too. That's a shame.

Still wondering why I paid 25 bucks a year ago... all the features are for free now. And web cam and voice chat still doesn't work. Terrible piece of software. Seems I'll never be able to remove Windows Live Messenger :(

Early build of Scribefire extension now available for Google Chrome (Download Squad)

Apr 10th 2010 6:37AM The only problem with ScribeFire: No WYSIWYG live preview. That's the main reason I have to stick with Windows Live Writer.
