6.0 (Oct 16, 2005)
It looks like they've done something about the memory guzzling. iTunes is using around 7-15Mb now, compared to the 30-40MB iTunes 4 & 5 used to use.
I wish, I wish, I wish the installer would ask before it puts shortcuts in the quicklaunch bar and system tray.
It's quite usable as a music player, and I find it's a great podcast manager.
0.1.1.5 Alpha (Sep 2, 2005)
Nice idea. My only gripe is there's no apparent ability to run it as a service yet, or at least without the command-line window visible all the time. Perhaps I haven't read the docs properly.
I look forward to future releases.
6.0.631.003 (Jul 27, 2005)
I've been using ZoneAlarm since version 3.x, and recently took it off to give Sygate a go after reading good things about it. The trouble I'd being having with local network servers like FTP and SSH and Windows shares were ALL ZONEALARM. I haven't had any trouble with Sygate yet: everything works perfectly now.
I don't think I'll ever use ZA again.
4314.4c Beta (Jul 27, 2005)
When I tried to download this I was taken to a registration screen. Not having an AOL account, I signed up, only to be told that 'this area can not be accessed by your account.'
After this, and my experiences with the Triton IM client betas, I am pretty unimpressed with AOL. No wonder everyone loves to bash them.
I won't be using (or, as in this case, trying to use) any AOL software again if I can help it.
From what I can see of the interface, it looks like more of the same old featureless, memory-and-cpu-hogging eye-candy crapware.
Edit: I usually don't like responding to other users' comments here, but to the reviewers immediately above and below: people don't bash AOL to be trendy, they bash AOL because their software is a dog.

I haven't RTFA, but I can say this straight away: What a stupid idea. Why would anyone want mobile windows in their cars? Electric ones are bad enough, without having to chase them around just to get some fresh air. Or are they controlled via remote?
I say it's a bad idea. This is going to see fatal car accidents rise tremendously.
Seriously, it sounds good. By the time I can afford a new car this (or similar) might be standard. :)

Try using using US English in Gmail if you're not already.

It looks like MS is running out of ways to copy Google. I wonder what they'll pinch next.
