How to back up Gmail to Hotmail or a desktop email program

When the news first broke of Gmail losing a small chuck of its users' inboxes, I had a rather terrifying realization: For nearly 8 years, I've been using Gmail as my only message store -- putting all my eggs in one basket, so to speak. If you use Gmail, you're probably now thinking the same thing as me: I really should have a backup. But where should I back up to? There are two choices: use...

Picasa Web Albums now store unlimited small images and videos

Recently, some users of Google's Picasa Web service noticed something odd. Like Gmail, Picasa Web tells you how much of your total available storage you're using. Something appeared to be wrong, however -- users were reporting having more free space than they previously had. It's common for Google to silently bump our upper storage limits, but how were these users showing the same number of photos...

HP webOS 3.0 gets a video store, powered by Roxio

Yesterday saw a flurry of webOS unveilings from HP, from new hardware to a previously unseen version of webOS for tablets. They also finally dispelled any doubt about whether webOS would find its way onto HP PCs -- and it will, later this year. But the reveals weren't all about hardware and software -- content played an important role as well. Amazon's Kindle app was demoed on the TouchPad, as...

Amazon MP3 app now available for BlackBerry

Users of RIM's BlackBerry devices now have access to a massive catalog of downloadable music, thanks to the arrival of Amazon's MP3 store. Apart from giving you access to Amazon's huge selection of tunes, Amazon MP3 lets you take advantage of their dirt-cheap Daily Deal albums (which are usually less than $5) and grab the free MP3 of the day. Sharing to social networks is also built-in, so it's...

Acer to launch app store, will pre-load on PCs

Our pals over at Engadget covered the Acer hullabaloo this morning, and there's one bit which blipped on the Download Squad radar. Yes, software aficionados, Acer is launching an app and content store. It'll be called Alive, and you can't really blame Acer for the move -- they're a top-3 manufacturer selling millions of laptops and desktops every year. The opportunity to glean a few percentage...

Brad Sucks Digital Download Store is a free, easy-to-install Web storefront

Canadian Brad Turcotte, AKA Brad Sucks, makes music. In fact, he makes open source music, and he lets people download the source files of his songs for free and remix them into all sorts of weird creations. Given his open source musical model, it should come as no surprise to you that Brad is a nerd. And as a nerd, he scratched his own itch and created the Brad Sucks Digital Download Store. The...

Microsoft planning an app store for next version of Office (2013?)

As we continue hurtling headlong into the Golden Age of App Stores, a job posting from Microsoft hints that there's at least one more around the corner. Yes, Office 15 (probably due in 2013) could very well be getting a dedicated app store. It all starts with a job posting from Microsoft, which states that it's looking for a marketer to head up its Office Managed group. Nestled in among the...

Holy sh**, Grooveshark iPhone app now available in the App Store!

It's no secret that there was a little bad blood last time Grooveshark submitted their iPhone app to the Cupertino Crew. The app was denied, and Grooveshark didn't fell they had to take the rejection lying down... So they decided to release it to jailbroken iPhones and iPods via Cydia. Yesterday, however, Grooveshark announced that Apple had approved the app. Yep, it's in the app store right...

Google unveils Chrome Web App Store: show us your surprised face

It was pretty much a foregone conclusion that Google would create some kind of a marketplace for Chrome OS. They've got one for Android devices, after all, so it stands to reason that they'd want something similar available to users of their upcoming Chrome OS on tablets and netbooks. At Google I/O, they've just taken the wraps off it at chromewebstore.appspot.com (internal access only at this...

µTorrent 2.2 gets an app store

µTorrent is the most popular bittorrent client by a wide margin. Dubbed Project Griffin, version 2.2 build 19640 has added a web-based framework which developers can use to create apps for µTorrent. The goal of the project is to allow extensibility while keeping µTorrent itself as light as possible. According to the Project Griffin web page, the two don't have to be mutually...

YouTube opens video rental store with decent prices, decent selection

Although YouTube has long since given up on its paid download feature, the popular video site has moved on to something bigger and better: movie rentals. You can now grab a 48-hour rental from YouTube for anywhere between 99 cents and $3.99. YouTube's rental library started back in January, when it offered a selection of movies from the Sundance Film Festival, but it's now expanded into all kinds...

Big news today from our friends over at the official WinAmp blog: you can now purchase and download music right inside your WinAmp window! Like the Ubuntu One Music Store, Winamp's downloads will be provided by 7digital. As I mentioned with U1, one of the key features here is availability: 7digital is available nearly everywhere, unlike some competitors (such as Amazon). 7digital also boasts a...

EveryScape provides Google Street View -like tours inside points of interest

A few days ago I posted something about Google planning to take Street View to businesses to let you look at them from the inside. Commenter Neil let me know that this sort of thing already exists commercially and pointed me towards EveryScape. And indeed, I think this is probably what Google have in mind with the Street View pilot. You start off on a city street and then use 3d-looking...

eMusic expands MP3 store with Warner agreement

eMusic is a solid place to purchase and download music. They've always had a great catalog of music that is "off the beaten path," as well as recordings of live performances. Their catalog is about to get even larger: eMusic has finally reached an agreement with Warner Music and will be adding around 10,000 new albums. No, those new albums won't include current popular music - that's something...

Intel's AppUp store smells like netbook bloat - and a cash cow

It's not that I don't understand what Intel is trying to do with AppUp - their angle is pretty clear. There's plenty of potential profit if Intel negotiates distribution deals with OEMs and can get AppUp preinstalled on millions of netbooks. But what's the big selling point for the consumer? There are, after all, loads of great sites you can already visit to download freeware and...
