Windows 8 App Store images leaked? (Download Squad)

Apr 11th 2011 5:27PM This looks to be fascinating, but it falls in line with Microsoft's new screened applications option… makes sense, but is this the model? I believe not.

Microsoft really needs away to combat the other market places within it's desktop market; this could be a way to round out their application offerings. AND screen applications for malicious code— making Windows a bit safer. Who knows?!

Jabber celebrates 12th birthday (Download Squad)

Jan 5th 2011 12:47PM I wish everything would used Jabber. One consolidated Instant Messenger protocol; so everything works together- standard communications. I believe if that could happen a more robust option, faster development and over an overall win for everyone. Similar to the open source Ubuntu, but for Instant Messengers.

Thunderbird gets Twitter support via TweeQuilla proof-of-concept add-on (Download Squad)

Jan 5th 2011 12:39PM SocialMail for Thunderbird is a good plug-in; it offers the ability to send tweets from within Thunderbird. But it also offers an interface similar to Xobni.

Internet Explorer 9 beta downloaded more than 20 million times (Download Squad)

Jan 3rd 2011 12:14PM Downloading Internet Explorer 9 beta for for user of Windows Live Writer 2011 will mess it up. The only thing Internet Explorer is good for is downloading Chrome or Firefox.

Top new and updated Windows apps of 2010 (Download Squad)

Dec 30th 2010 4:29PM I use pretty much all these applications with Windows, but I haven't heard of Dexpot; I'll have to make an attempt to try that one.

Nice list.

Thank you,

McAfee: Smartphones, Apple devices to be top malware targets in 2011 (Download Squad)

Dec 29th 2010 12:30PM I am really concerned about the security breaches we're having, or the potential, with Smartphones. PC's are getting hacked everyday, webservers are getting id and passwords stolen and with Smartphones being so new and the hackers being so current; it's easy to be scared about the introduction of viruses and or malware on Smartphones. And with the small processors fighting to keep up, having anti-virus on Smartphones will just drag them down even more.

Google Chrome Beta update brings PDF viewer, App sync (Download Squad)

Nov 5th 2010 11:56AM I believe this is a good idea for a browser, but I wonder how other PDF viewer programs will feel about Chrome attempting to take some of their thunder%u2026 As if they've any choice in the matter. In situations like this, Google is banking on people NOT wanting to mess with settings/options.

That's where Microsoft and Google are similar%u2026

Trend Micro raises a stink over Security Essentials via Windows Update (Download Squad)

Nov 5th 2010 11:42AM I've always been amazed at what Microsoft considers an 'update', and just how much they decide to put in their operating system. Microsoft isn't just in the operating system business, they want to get everyone using every software package they've got.

To kill Netscape they gave away Internet Explorer; you/anyone can't compete with free. As well all know Internet Explorer is crap [the brand is basically dead and too far damaged to be viable], but Microsoft still pushes it.

But it's completely unfair to have Microsoft push an anti-virus package like MSE to the clients as an auto update.

I would suspect Trend Micro won't be the last to throw a 'hissy' about this push from Microsoft.

Let's watch how the pages turn on this book.

YouTube finishes transcoding 80% of video catalog to WebM (Download Squad)

Nov 5th 2010 11:35AM It impresses me that when Google or YouTube decide they're going to do something, or move forward with an idea; they just do it- the ducklings will fall in place. I believe this is a bold move for YouTube/Google, but we'll have to wait to see how this plays out in the next couple of months.

There's always a back story to these changes.

Three LimeWire alternatives for easy peer-to-peer downloading (Download Squad)

Nov 1st 2010 1:25PM This is exactly what I was stating…

While it took almost 10 years to shut down Limewire; there's applications lined up to take it's place. I find the process for the RIAA futile and ignorant to keep moving forward this direction.

Thanks for providing the links; I knew they'd be coming…

Until next time,
