Farewell, Internet (Download Squad)

Apr 12th 2011 12:50PM That's really shitty news. I have been following Download squad for a long time and have always liked and enjoyed the articles.

Are any of you thinking of getting together to start your own site for tech news? You have some great writers and it would be a shame to split everyone up.

Thanks for all the articles though in the past and for all your efforts, it's a real shame to see a decent place like this close.

May the interwebs be with you young padawans'.


Google TV Remote app for iPhone lands in the App Store (Download Squad)

Google TV Remote app for iPhone lands in the App Store (Download Squad)

Mar 21st 2011 6:48AM I know that this may sound stupid, but not 100% sure on how infra-red works on mobile devices, but is there an app for controlling my TV at home? I know that you can buy universal remote controls from Argos (UK shop) for about £10.00, but technically, couldn't you have the same functions in an app on your mobile that could communicate with my TV and other IR devices. It would be an extremely useful app to have if I could create separate profiles in the app for my bluray and the 3 other different make of TV's in the house.
Does that make sense? If there is such an app, I would love to know.

Mar 18th 2011 12:03PM Also the ability to not have to enter my email and password and then verify my comments. It really must be simpler.
Not having a go, it's just annoying.
Having said that, if I am doing it wrong and there is a way to log in so I don't keep on having to do this everytime I want to comment, please feel free to shoot me....virtually.

Warner Bros. renting movies on Facebook for $3 (Download Squad)

Mar 8th 2011 3:44PM There isn't a chance in hell I would trust any kind of financial transactions in Facebook. No Way.
It actually baffles me that people do.

Cloud Save for Google Chrome sends files from the Web to your online storage (Download Squad)

Mar 7th 2011 5:08PM Just tested this out with my Dropbox. What a great idea!
Going to be a useful one, and looking forward to it's development.

Ask DLS: How did your Windows 7 SP1 upgrade go? (Download Squad)

Mar 5th 2011 8:57PM @Neoprimal That makes sense. I know quite a few people who refuse to update their PC's and then wonder why things go wrong with them. Not just talking about Windows updates, but Anti-virus, and other programs.

How Secure is My Password lets you know just that (Download Squad)

Mar 5th 2011 2:15PM I got "About 40 octillion years" for my PC password (Truecrypt) But I'm guessing there will be a computer or algorithm that will be able to crack it in less that 10yrs the way things are going.

Facebook for Android vulnerable to simple snooping tricks (Download Squad)

Feb 24th 2011 4:59PM Correct me if I'm wrong, but I know that the web-based version of Facebook allows https communication (although annoyingly a lot of app won't work with this and ask you to disable it, like RSS re-direct links etc) but the mobile versions still don't have this as a security option.
Is this down to slack official Facebook mobile application developers or something else.
I think Firesheep pointed out the weaknesses in Facebook and general wi-fi communication and they have just focused on a single popular application.
