Jay's 10 favorite iPhone apps of 2009

After I put together my list of 10 awesome free Mac apps for 2009, a lot of folks asked me when the iPhone list was coming out. How about right now? Get ready, because I'm about to tell you how to spend those iTunes gift cards you got for Christmas. I've selected an eclectic little group of apps that includes games, productivity tools, chat and more, and it makes a great starter kit for anyone wh...

Seb's 10 greatest, geekiest and most awesome things of 2009

As you can probably tell, I'm not as savvy when it comes to software -- sure, I know my way around a computer, but it's nothing like the prowess that Lee and Jay display here on Download Squad. You see... I'm a geek. Not a Mac nerd like Jay, or a security-Linux-OMG-netbook dweeb like Lee -- I'm a geek. I get excited about the things people do with computers. A virus-free computer is cool but cal...

Jay's 10 favorite free Mac apps of 2009

After Lee posted his excellent list of 10 favorite free Windows apps, I figured I'd jump in on the Mac side of things. 2009 has brought a lot of great new software to the Mac, especially with the introduction of OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. We've seen everything from hot new browsers to productivity apps to essential system utilities, and they're all well worth a download. Since Lee included some old ...

Top 10 Flickr Hacks

I have a Flickr account, and I take plenty of photos, but I find myself not using it as much as I feel I ought to. Maybe Thomas Hawk's list of Top 10 Hacks on Flickr will help remedy that. It's a round-up of tricks, scripts, and sites that make Flickr more pleasurable to use, and though I'd seen some of them already, several of them were pleasant surprises. His #1 Flickr "hack" is Flickr Leech. I...

10 things you should know about Linux

Even if you're an experienced computer user, stepping into Linux the first time can be disorienting. TechRepublic has an article called 10 things you should know about every Linux installation  that begins, "There are numerous common features with every Linux installation.

Ten tools for every admin

Okay, we've seen plenty of lists of apps for every user, or every Windows user, or every Mac user. But what about the sysadmins? This list of 10 tools for every admin is a good start, if very Windows-centric. The list is a bit different than it might have been a few years ago, with now-essential tools like a virtual CD app, VMWare or Virtual PC, a USB key, and even an RSS reader making the cut. Ok...

Top 10 Web Moments of 2005

In December 1990 there was a single web site on the Internet, and by the end of 1991 that figured had jumped to ten. Today there are millions of sites and billions of pages, and the web is a universe unto itself. It's impossible for any one person to keep track of even one percent of the interesting stuff happening on the web, but still we try until our favorites folders are overflowing, our socia...

BlogPulse's 2005 Year in Review

Like Google's Year-End Zeitgeist but for blogs, BlogPulse has published a Year in Review that lists 2005's biggest blogs, news stories, images, videos, and more. Boing Boing, unsurprisingly, crowns the Top Blogs list, followed by our sister blog Engadget. The Top Blog Posts category is an interesting potpourri with an odd LiveJournal bent, and the Top Wikipedia References category (Podcasting, Hur...

Ten biggest Microsoft surprises of 2005

Microsoft Watch has posted a list of The 10 Biggest Microsoft Surprises of 2005. Though they weren't all especially surprising, in my opinion, it's a good round-up of some of Microsoft's more uncharacteristic moves this year. Among the highlights: The Office team opens up (a little), Redmond still can't find a way to shake its shoddy security image, MS 'gets' RSS, and IE rises from the dead. As us...

Top 10 podcasts episodes of 2005

Who listens to enough podcasts to name the top ten episodes of the year? The folks at LearnOutLoud, apparently. To be fair, they only chose among podcasts that are listed in their hand-picked directory, but it makes for a pretty good sample. Topping the list of LearnOutLoud's Top 10 Podcast Episodes of 2005 is the Entrepreneurial Thought Leaders podcast featuring the CEO of Trilogy Software, Diggn...
