LimeWire throws in the towel, shutters their Music Store

Napster, the venerable grandfather of music downloading apps, staged somewhat of an amazing comeback a few years ago -- becoming a fully legal music service.

Free Partition Master from Easeus now works on 64-bit Windows, too!

Easeus Partition Master has always been a great little app. It's a powerful yet easy-to-use disk partitioning tool that makes managing your hard disks a breeze. Better still, it runs right in Windows -- handy for people like me who always miss the 'Press F11 for boot menu' prompt. There was one big downside to the free version, however: it didn't support 64-bit versions of Windows. That's all...
