ClipUpload is a super-fast way to share files, screenshots, and text

ClipUpload is definitely one of the neater tools that I've seen today. Once you fire it up, it nestles in a comfy spot in your system tray and waits. When you decide you want to send somebody a file, an image, or a long snippet of text, you just copy that file to your clipboard and click ClipUpload's icon once. That single click makes ClipUpload instantly upload your file to an online host (SendS...

Software to steer clear of: GoodSync Explorer

I honestly should have known better. Right from the get-go, GoodSync Explorer seemed kind of iffy. It didn't feel like malware, but I got strong "crapware" vibes. The description says that it uses "File System technology from GoodSync." Uh, ... File System technology? That sounds ... impressive. Still, I decided to take the plunge and try it anyway. I downloaded and installed it. I was happy to s...

YouSendIt is the only way to transfer files across the Internet -- review, and mammoth give-away

In today's day and age, transferring files is a pain in the ass. Sure, there's email or instant messenger if you want to transfer a single file from A to B -- but what if there's an attachment size limit on your email, or a firewall preventing you from sending files? What if you want to transfer whole directories? It's certainly possible but it's painful. Then there's FTP, an ancient technology...

Five Android apps for IT admins

If you're an IT Administrator (or even a developer who's lucky enough to "own" the server your apps run on), you've seen this go down before - you're out and about, having a great time when the phone rings. Something is horribly broken and needs your magic touch right away. Surely it's as simple as bouncing a system process - 2 minutes tops! Unfortunately, you're nowhere near a PC to type in th...

Panic releases awesome Transmit 4 FTP client

Panic's Transmit has been a familiar name in Mac software for years, to the point where that famous truck icon is synonymous with FTP for many Mac users. Even though there's solid competition out there -- Flow, for example, is quite nice -- Panic has worked hard to keep Transmit at the top of the heap. Today's release of Transmit 4 features a sexy revamped UI, under-the-hood speed improvements, a...

Five great Android apps for IT admins

With all the hoopla that surrounds the iPhone OS it's hard for some to imagine that some geeks...don't have (or want) an iPhone. Android, Google's mobile platform has been getting a lot of credit and recognition, especially as their app store continues. Once you get past the cheesy games and fart machines, Android offers some great tools to people when they aren't tied down to a desk. For serve...

WinSCP open source SFTP and FTP client for Microsoft Windows

WinSCP is freeware SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol) and SCP (Secure CoPy) client for Windows using SSH (Secure Shell) and has hit version 4.2.6. Its main purpose is the safe of copying files between local and remote computers. Beyond this basic function, it manages some other actions with files, like basic operations with files, such as copying and moving. One of two selectable program interfaces...

Google discontinuing FTP support for Blogger blogs

Love it or hate it, Blogger was the tool that really brought blogging into the mainstream. Once upon a time, the only way to have your blog hosted on your own domain was to use Blogger as the content management system, but then have it use FTP to push HTML pages to your web host. Fast forward to 2010, and it turns out that only half of one percent of Blogger's users are using Blogger's FTP upload...

Map FTP servers to Windows drives with NetDrive

NetDrive is a Windows utility that lets you treat remote FTP sites as if they were local drives. The first time you connect to an FTP site, you have to create a profile. But once you're connected you can copy files to and from the FTP site using Windows Explorer or any other file explorer of your choosing. No FTP client required. To disconnect from the FTP server, just bring up the NetDrive wind...

Fling keeps local, network, FTP folders, and flash drives in sync

Part of my day job - like many of you, no doubt - involves making sure that a number of folders on my network are backed up, syncedd, uploaded, and otherwise maintained. After experimenting with Fling on my small, home network, it looks like it might just simplify my chores at work, too. Fling is a tiny download - about 230KB - but it's packed with features. It's built for local, network, and...

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 bu...

Net2ftp is a solid web-based FTP client

Every now and then I need to FTP something from a computer that doesn't have an FTP client installed. Since it always seems to happen when I forget my flash drive, I like the option of using net2ftp's web-based client. The basic interface is all PHP, so it should work just fine in any browser. It performed nicely in Chrome, Firefox, and IE on my desktop and even on my iPod touch. It's a very cap...
