Oct 7th 2010 3:10AM Excellent, Apple royally screw UK buyers yet again - baaaah

Android Market to begin accepting PayPal payments on October 26? (Download Squad)

Oct 7th 2010 3:08AM Unfortunately not everyone has a bad experience, tell me any that have a 100% customer service record, and they've been stellar for me. I use PayPal as much as I can, really welcome this news if true and hate it when sites don't accept it - yes Amazon, I'm looking at you......

Notes for Later is a super-fast way to email links to yourself (Download Squad)

Sep 14th 2010 5:39AM Hmmm.... all I ever do in Firefox is right-click the page, hit "Send link...", it opens a compose email for Gmail, I enter my own address (usually just the first few characters as the rest just appears) and then send it. It fills in the subject with the page title and the body with the link.

Nearly as simple, I think you have to have been logged into Gmail for it not to prompt you for a password, and without the need to give a 3rd party your email address.

Jun 25th 2010 2:21AM Lame article and user error. It clearly states "your documents will not be affected" not "your 'My Documents' files will not be affected" or something similar and as it's called "System restore" of course it will replace/remove "system files" aka ".exe" ".dll" etc etc

Windows 7 Tip: How to change the default audio device with a hotkey (Download Squad)

Jun 16th 2010 8:34AM Yes, thanks for this. Had to change the "Down 2" to "Down 1" on my system as my devices seem to be set up differently, but it works a treat.

Xmarks now syncs your open tabs everywhere (Download Squad)

Apr 30th 2010 3:08AM Yeah, they're crying "too much effort" to maintain the code for both their servers and your own, but I say BS to that.

I just hope someone can look at the code and make it work for our own servers as well,

Apr 8th 2010 3:11AM lol, first thing to mind on hearing the new name - "simples" http://comparethemeerkat.com/

Rhapsody music service leaves Real, lowers price, and launches Android app (Download Squad)

Apr 7th 2010 3:01AM Are they anything to do with Play.com as their two logos are suspiciously similar?
