Ask DLS: how to change your Download Squad password, the best Android web browser, and tailoring our RSS feeds

We're back with more of your questions, and more of our excellent answers. This week, with the high-profile Gawker Media hack, we've been innundated with commenters asking how to change their Download Squad password.

Ask DLS: Android antivirus, scanner issues and video games

Every morning, as Lee empties the mail bag onto my desk, we pore through cries of help that range from the utterly banal -- "how do i install iTuns???" -- through to truly taxing technical teasers.

If something prevents you from...

Welcome to the new DownloadSquad

When I helped launch DownloadSquad into cyberspace five years ago, our goal was to make the site a one-stop shop for news and reviews about applications you can download on your computer.

In short, the tech landscape has changed quite a bit!...

This week's guest blogger - Saul Colt

We meet a lot of interesting people in the course of running Download Squad; Developers, designers, engineers, entrepreneurs, executives. Thinkers.

Our brand-new hotness

As Steve Jobs would say, "boom." Download Squad readers with keen eyes have taken notice; we've gotten our first full redesign in our history. It's green, it's hot and we luvs it.
