Sophos Labs releases free antivirus for Mac

There was a time when Mac users enjoyed "security by obscurity." Because of the much smaller number of Mac users in the world, malware authors didn't bother targeting Apple desktops and laptops. Those days are long gone, however, and new threats that put Mac users at risk are appearing all the time. Fortunately, there are now plenty of good antivirus options for Mac users to combat the rising...

FreetuxTV lets you watch and record hundreds of free-to-air TV channels

As the name suggests, this is a Linux-only app. You could always use Ubuntu (or similar) under VMware, though, which is what I did to bring you this review! Now on with the show.

It comes bundled with lots of different channel groups, each one containing channels from a specific country, or...

Mulve is a fast, free, non-P2P way to download music

There isn't much else to say: Mulve is just a single 2MB, portable EXE that lets you download music. There's no UI to speak of, and it's completely unconfigurable. You just type in a band name or song title and... download. The thing is, despite being free and tiny, the selection of music is insane. Lee found a bunch of crazy bands like The Wonderstuff, Mind Bomb, and Johnny Socko -- and for...

SecondShell is a portable utility that makes Windows Explorer a lot more user friendly

SecondShell is a tool that makes window management both less fiddly and more keyboard shortcut oriented.
