Layar is a glimpse at the future of mobile computing (Download Squad)

Jun 19th 2009 1:35AM I wonder how many days will pass by until we hear that the company has been bought by Google. Would that be bad? I don't even think so.

Google Apps now syncs with Microsoft Outlook (Download Squad)

Jun 12th 2009 1:53AM Same problem here, in my case I suppose this could be linked to the proxy at work. Still need trying it at home.

Wanna write for Download Squad? (Download Squad)

May 9th 2008 8:50AM "Don't send us previous posts from your own blog!"
I assume you've seen this! Probably some poor souls duly applying what was effective in some schools.

"Witty and sarcastic a plus"
Mmmh! IMHO I would make that a condition. The IT world is serious enough.

BTW, the keyboard you've chosen to illustrate this post goes well along of few others I have seen here, laden with a generous serving of typing errors. I guess, that would be another condition down the list ;-)

Windows Tip: Simulate "No to All" in file copy dialog (Download Squad)

Apr 15th 2008 11:18AM Same here. Better not try counting the hours I have lost all these years doing those painful manual resyncs.

I'd be better off waiting for downloadsquad coming online on a Mac or Linux box before beginning to use Windows :-).

All this frustration...

Jiffle makes meeting scheduling easier (Download Squad)

Apr 15th 2008 11:07AM Somehow similar with regards to the main intent but with quite less bells and whistles, over here (CH), we already enjoy Doodle since 2006.

It is simple, small, free and does not require any registration.


Toggle Flash: Add-on to disable Flash in IE 7 (Download Squad)

Apr 8th 2008 5:32AM Since March last year Firefox users are already enjoying a quite efficient Flashblock add-on (now v1.5.5). Thus, for me, the history of the Internet has been strongly impacted about a year ago :-).

Actually, Flashblock kept me away from all the other browsers. Nice knowing that IE7 now share that same essential feature. How about IE8? Isn't it round the corner?

Get Pocket Informant 2007 for free: 2 days only (Download Squad)

Jan 8th 2008 2:56PM Thank you very much for the post and link. After now a few days using it I found it to be a great piece of programming. It is another reason why the Windows Mobile OS is just the beginning, the foundation upon which such smart application can grow up.

I'll have no afterthoughts paying something down the road for the next update.

Internet Explorer 8 is the name (Download Squad)

Dec 6th 2007 1:00PM As there is a finite number of species and an even much smaller one
of sexy animal kinds Apple OS users can logically hope that it will
eventually be finished.

About Microsoft's naming, on the other hand, mmh, ... Aha, that's why!

Windows XP SP3 includes new features, security updates (Download Squad)

Oct 12th 2007 6:25AM I don't get all the fuss that goes around any new OS. Don't we all spend 95% of our time in the higher layers, that is, in applications? The OS, I see it only when it fails!

Anyway, as far I have understood, Vista gives me vastly less bangs for my bucks, especially those I have spent on hardware. I prefer knowing my CPU and GPU cycling on my own demand and for my own direct benefit. Shouldn't we all be growing a conscience about our usage of energy nowadays?

SP3 for XP sounds like a very good news as I also hope being able to turn of that automatic update mess after that. 6 years of beta testing should start to show some benefits.

Radiohead lets fans set price for new album (Download Squad)

Oct 11th 2007 5:16AM This is great! What would be even better is to be able to pay _after_ one has listened... You liked so much that you "vote" with your money to have more of it.
