  1. Review - VLC for Mac OS X

    2.0.5 (Jun 23, 2013)

    I just love this program and have for many years. Right now it's being used on a mac (10.8.4) and have had no issues whatsoever playing files of any type. It has played every type of file I have thrown at it. IMHO it beats quicktime, hands down.

  2. Review - Dropbox

    2.1.5 Experimental (Apr 1, 2013)

    @Aegis69 Lawdie you're as dumb as a hammer

    So..How much did the computer cost you? The power to run it? The drives you're putting in? The space in your parents basement to store it? And it's still not unlimited. Einstein...your hard drives run out of space too.

    So why would someone choose a cloud based storage option? Because they don't want to set all that s*** up. They don't want to have to administer the box, they don't want to have to deal with hardware failures, they want apps that can be shared easily between devices and computers. Maybe for a tard like yourself, in a poor attempt at looking l33t, this is an option. But for a large corporation or organization...it's not

  3. Review - OnlineVNC

    2.2 (Jan 7, 2013)

    Pass credentials over a 3rd party server with no mention of encryption? No thanks.

  4. Review - MediaMonkey

    4.0.7.1507 RC (Nov 6, 2012)

    I don't actually pay for much software. But this I have. My music collection is rather large, and MM really takes care of it all. Plays, tags, renames, streams, etc...Everything. As far as performance goes, I find that it runs well on my setup. quad core intel 8gb ram, even with many other applications running. It reads UPNP servers easily. Just a great program. A few quirks on the interface I would rather not have, but meh, no biggie.

  5. Review - WinZip for Windows

    17 Build 10283 (Oct 17, 2012)

    the program works. But why use this, when there's so many free, if not GPL, decompression tools out there? Sure it's prettier than 7-zip, but who really cares?

  6. Comment - Dell promises to protect business customers' right not to use Vista

    17 Build 10283 (Apr 28, 2008 - 9:21 AM)

    I agree with you to a certain point....

    Yes, if Mac is on top, there will be more focus to exploiting it, however, due to the way that the mac os is designed (tis unix after all), there is less of a threat than there is in XP/Vista/2k. Unix by its design is much more secure than windows. Been working in both environments for about 10 years, and I cant remember ever having to clean a virus or malware from a linux box or a mac system...ever. Windows...at least a few times a week. Maybe unix/mac users are a bit more savvy not to click on the banner offering them free sex at 3am...but I would put my money on the OS. If MS used a unix kernel on win 7, then they might have a winner. It worked for mac. Unless you were a mac fanboy from years past, the macos got solid once it was based on bsd. I truly hated the macos until it hit osx.

  7. Comment - Dell promises to protect business customers' right not to use Vista

    17 Build 10283 (Apr 28, 2008 - 9:01 AM)

    Have you ever used Vista? Or even better...have you had to support 200+ workstations? We do not want Vista in there at all. Why? Because its not about "moving on"...its about being able to keep business as usual. Vista is inferior to XP in the business arena, and in the business world, as I am sure you are aware, is about money. Personal users want to "move on" then thats fine. But in the business world, you cant just "move on". Because in "moving on" it could involve hundreds of man hours, and not to mention, tons of money having to replace hardware and software that is in the business world that wont work in vista. Try getting a job in IT schmuck and you will see that the world doesnt revolve around you...it revolves around whats best for the users and the company. If we upgrade to Vista...we HAVE to upgrade all of the hardware. Suddenly, the cost has tripled, the time investment has tripled...just to install an OS that isnt ready for prime time.

  9. Comment - Death Knell Sounds for Nullsoft, Winamp

    17 Build 10283 (Nov 11, 2004 - 1:32 PM)

    I, for one, will miss winamp. Until recently (started to use media center from jriver) its been my only media player. I remember dumping winplay (circa 1997) and going to winamp and never looked back. However, media center came to v. 10 and it just kicked ass. So winamp, old friend, you will be missed.

  10. Comment - Microsoft Reissues DirectX 9 Update

    17 Build 10283 (Mar 26, 2003 - 7:48 PM)

    I am glad to see that this update came out. I have an ATI AIW 7500. I had just reinstalled Windows 2000 and decided to install DX9 and the newest catalyst drivers. After that, my TV capture would not work. I always leave contacting support as the last result, but after I tried everything I could think of, I emailed ATI, and got the lamest canned response that I have ever seen. It was just a set of links to their basic installation. I even took the time to email them my whole sysinfo about my box and all the details. No wonder end users lose their minds, you have to be quite skilled with PC's to be able to solve half the problems that arise. Since tech support for most of these companies are a joke. I can say that since I work in tech support. Heheh...
