Files Over Miles does simple, direct transfers in your browser

Looking for a good, simple way to send files using only your web browser? As long as you and your recipient have the Flash plugin installed, it doesn't get much easier than Files Over Miles. Choose a file to share, and FOM creates a hash-like URL for the transfer. Nothing starts moving until the receiver visits the URL and the client kicks in. Once that happens, your data is sent directly to...

Skype 3.0 beta for Windows Mobile adds file transfer, SMS

Skype has launched a beta of Skype 3.0 for Windows Mobile. As expected, the new client has two major new features: SMS and file transfer. The file transfer feature lets you swap files with any other Skype member, whether they're using a mobile or desktop client. With the SMS function, you can send domestic or international text messages at Skype rates, which in many cases are lower than the...

LoadScout grabs only what you need from remote archives

One thing that bothers me about some manufacturers is the way they provide drivers on their website. Why should I have to suffer through a sluggish 70mb download when all I want is the 300k in the drivers\winxp folder? LoadScout is one possible solution to that problem. Paste the link to your file, and LoadScout will connect and display its contents. Highlight what you need, click the extract...

file ai turns your web browser into a file server

There are plenty of services out there that will let you send files to someone even if they're too large to fit in an email attachment. But YouSendIt, FileMail and similar services typically require you to upload the file before the recipient can begin downloading it. You can save time by allowing someone to copy the file straight from your computer using file ai. Here's how it works. You visit...

Podmailing: Yet another way to send large files

Don't like the idea of uploading large files to a web server and sending a download link to your friends or colleagues? Podmailing is an application/service that aims to solve the same problem as YouSendIt and EatLime -- most email services limit file attachments to 10 or 20MB. But Podmailing takes a very different approach than most other services in this space. First of all, while most...

EatLime: Sharing large files keeps getting easier

Once upon a time if you wanted to share files too large to send as email attachments, you would upload them to an FTP site. But not everyone has an FTP site lying around, and so web services like YouSendIt, MailBigFile, and Driveway have stepped up to the plate. While YouSendIt it probably the most familiar name of the bunch, the service only lets users send files up to 100MB for free. For...

It's hard to pay the bills with ads: PipeBytes charges for file transfers now

Back in November we took a look at a promising new service that lets you send large files to friends or colleagues without using an instant messenger, FTP site, or web parking service like YouSendIt.
