RockMelt, the Facebook-powered Web browser, enters public beta

In November 2010, RockMelt launched the private beta of its social Web browser. The app features tight Facebook integration and offers plenty of social networking conveniences for its users. Now RockMelt has entered open beta testing, and the app is available for download by anyone who wants to kick the tires. Like Flock, RockMelt offers at least one feature we really like: a master...

Like.fm aggregates, simplifies your music discovery and sharing

Those of you who spend a lot of time online discovering and listening to music may want to check out Like.fm, a new app which is designed to automatically track and share what you play. It's a sort of 'discovery aggregator,' pulling in tunes from services like YouTube, Pandora, Rdio, and Grooveshark -- which already offer their own discovery tools. Like.fm aims to provide one-stop shopping,...

Adobe's just let loose Flash Player 10.3 beta for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux, featuring a few new talents ready for developers to take advantage. First up we've got 'Acoustic Echo Cancellation,' which aims to aid voice conferencing by implementing noise suppression, voice activity detection, automatic gain control for volume level compensation, and of course, acoustic echo cancellation....

Personal Activity Monitor tracks time you spend using desktop apps

Up until a couple of years ago, I used to turn to RescueTime to figure out how I spend my time online. Then it got too complex, and I stopped using it. Personal Activity Monitor is like a vastly dumbed-down version of RescueTime, and I mean that as a compliment. It's free and bare-bones -- all it does is track what applications you're using and for how long. A big drawback at this point is...

Pastebin updated to V3, releases Windows app

Pastebin is a very popular website aimed at coders and other nerdy types, which allows them (or should I say, us) to paste and share snippets of code with lovely syntax highlighting. It has recently undergone a major overhaul which includes the release of a brand new Windows client. The new client lets you create new "pastes" and manage your existing ones. It joins a host of other tools from...

G Data CloudSecurity offers free protection from Web malware

You may not have heard of G Data, but the German security software developer consistently posts top marks in antivirus tests. Now, we know many of you don't like toolbars, but G Data CloudSecurity for Firefox and Internet Explorer is one that might be good enough to recommend to your friends and family who need help avoiding malware on the Web. CloudSecurity offers functionality much like...

Windows 8 leaked screenshots show Windows Live integration, taskbar tweaks

Tangible Windows 8 details are beginning to emerge with some screenshots of the OS making the rounds on the Internet. Not much is revealed, but we do get a glimpse at a couple interesting changes. For starters, taskbar progress indicator support has been expanded to other built-in Windows functions, like hardware installation. Windows Live integration is evolving, too -- you'll be able to...

Opera 11.10 adds more Speed Dial tweaks, Presto refinements

Opera 11.10 Barracuda recently started baring its teeth, so to speak, revealing some subtle but welcome changes to the browser's trademark Speed Dial page. In its latest snapshot, further enhancements have been added. You can now customize titles for your Speed Dial entries, and the page itself is zoomable -- making it easier to cram large numbers of pages onto a single screen for...

The best Windows Twitter clients: from TweetDeck to tweetc

With more than 190 million users, and less than half of those using Twitter.com to post updates, the installed Twitter client market is massive. There are literally hundreds of Twitter clients spanning every desktop and mobile platform, and even a few cross-platform Web apps thrown into the mix. Even if you narrow down the search to just one platform -- Windows -- there's still a dizzying...

Mozy announces sync apps for desktop, iOS and Android

Desktop-to-cloud backup provider Mozy has announced that it will soon release Mozy Sync, a file synchronization service like Dropbox or SugarSync. The company has also stated that Android and iOS apps will be available and that an invite-only beta is underway. You'll have to be a current MozyHome customer to be considered as a tester. What's not spelled out is how the service will work....

Microsoft cloud bulges with Live Mesh data

Based on a post from the Windows Team blog, it appears as though users are indeed heading "to the cloud!" Live Mesh -- the company's cross-device synchronization and remoting platform -- now boasts more than 5 million connected devices. From those devices, 3 million users have pushed more than 2.2 petabytes to the Windows Live cloud. That's a whole lotta data -- but we wonder how much higher...

iDisplay for Android review: turn your smartphone or tablet into a 2nd or 3rd desktop display

When we first heard about iDisplay, there was something about it that piqued our curiosity. It extends your desktop onto another screen -- your Android or iOS device, to be exact -- and while that sounds cool, its actual usefulness isn't immediately apparent. All you have to do is install the app on your Android device (2.1 or newer), run the server program on your Windows or Mac PC, and...

Flickr for Windows 7 tablets and Windows Phone 7 officially introduced

Originally unveiled back in January, Flickr has now officially introduced its apps for Windows Phone 7 and Windows 7 tablets. You'll find the Flickr WP7 app in the Zune Marketplace, while its tablet-friendly cousin is downloadable from this page (Silverlight required). Both apps provide a slick interface for browsing and searching Flickr, and they also provide a nice way to upload and manage...

Windows Embedded Compact 7 RTM now available for download

Windows Embedded Compact 7 has hit RTM and is now available for download. Win EC7 is Microsoft's version of Windows that's aimed at the embedded market, but the multi-touch OS has been heralded by some as Microsoft's other tablet platform. The Win EC7 'Evaluation Edition' 180-day trial is available here, and comes packing 'everything you need to build a broad range of small footprint devices.'...

Trillian adds realtime, multi-network chat sync across all your devices

For a while now, people have questioned whether multi-network chat app Trillian was worth its pricetag. With the company's latest update, there's a better chance users will say "yes." The big addition is that chats in Trillian are now shared in realtime across all your devices -- similar to how Google Talk and Skype have handled chats for some time. The difference, of course, is that Trillian...
