  1. Review - Advanced SystemCare Free

    7 Beta 3.0 (Oct 1, 2013)

    I used this in beta form when it first started and it worked quite well. At some time it became what it is today, quite unusable. Another example of tinkering with a good program until you ruin it.

  2. Review - SnapPea

    2.63.0.4343 (Sep 24, 2013)

    One of those enjoyable programs that just work!

  3. Review - IrfanView

    4.36 (Jun 29, 2013)

    As about a perfect piece of software you will find. Period.

  4. Review - Google Drive for Windows

    1.9.4536 (Apr 28, 2013)

    "Unknown Installer Error"

  5. Review - Google Earth for Windows

    7.1.1.1580 Beta (Apr 28, 2013)

    Loaded this version and the rotation, street view, etc tools would not show. They are there, you can tell their presence by mouse but they still stay invisible.
    Uninstalled and reinstalled from Google site to see if this particular download was corrupted. No change. Loaded previous version from Filehippo, works fine.
    Love this program, have used from the start, first time I have had an issue with it.

  6. Comment - Google Labs shutting down, taking down brilliant experiments with it

    7.1.1.1580 Beta (Jul 22, 2011 - 7:40 AM)

    This was something I really enjoyed and shared. Hopefully there will be something comparable brought out.

  7. Comment - Samsung Series 5 Chromebook first impression review

    7.1.1.1580 Beta (Jun 14, 2011 - 10:45 AM)

    The instant on feature is something Windows could do but has had no interest in doing. Perhaps features available in the marketplace might push them a little bit. A fast startup (which might resemble a configureable Express Gate) with a command to later start the other features you prefer to run would be perfect. I know about delayed starts etc. but this would be different and easy to use.

  8. Comment - Will you buy Google Chromebook?

    7.1.1.1580 Beta (Jun 10, 2011 - 10:46 AM)

    I suppose there will be a "cult of Chromebooks" like there is a "cult of Apple". There is no reason for the high prices and many more people will try them when they are more reasonably priced.
    Still, the geek in me wants a friend to buy one so I could play with it!

  9. Comment - A week with Google's Chrome OS laptop, Day 6: Adopting a new lifestyle

    7.1.1.1580 Beta (Dec 20, 2010 - 8:46 AM)

    I am in my sixties and have been a computer geek since 1987 when my drafting table was moved out of my office and a computer moved in. I instantly loved what I could do and no more clogged pens, erasures, etc. I have never looked back and only look forward to what happens next.
    What will happen with the Chrome OS and it's copiers (of course there will be!) will be a marketing coup. With a very low priced notebook/netbook affordable to the first time user it will be common for storage to take place in the cloud. It works that way.....market to the new generations of computer users and don't worry about what will be accepted by people that have been so used to reaching for the next size hard drive that they can't change their ways.
    I also admire Google for their tenacity, always trying something new. I would have given anything to be in on the OS beta test but the next best thing is being able through reports and comments to see how quickly Google responds. After seeing how fast their browser went from an anemic start to a very fast piece of software my money is on them responding quickly.

  10. Comment - Heavy AT&T DSL users could see additional fees

    7.1.1.1580 Beta (Jun 14, 2008 - 5:00 PM)

    We are living in a country where the government spent a lot of our tax money on studies of how to tax sunlight for solar several years back. With the government and big business working together they won't rest until they have regulated and stifled the net to death.
