Media Collection Management Software Explorer Plus

Media Collection Management Software Explorer Plus

Explorer Plus sounds like a replacement for Windows Explorer but it is in fact a media collection management software that makes use of Amazon’s vast inventory to offer a semi-automated process of adding collection items to the software’s database. The program needs to be run with administrative privileges, at least under Windows 7, as the data cannot be saved otherwise. But that is the only complication that users will encounter with this collection management software. Explorer...

iReboot è un programma della NeoSmart Technologies, un semplice ma efficace strumento di supporto per facilitare il riavvio fra due sistemi operativi. iReboot va a localizzarsi sulla barra delle applicazioni all’avvio (usando soltanto 400KB di memoria) e permette di scegliere quale sistema operativo si desidera avere al riavvio .

NoScript Might Come To Google Chrome: Eventually

NoScript Might Come To Google Chrome: Eventually

If you search the Internet, e.g. on Google Search or Bing, for requested extensions for the Google Browser you notice that NoScript next to an effective ad blocker tops those listings most of the times. NoScript is a Firefox extension that can block all scripts by default from being loaded when the page is requested. It is then up to the user to keep it that way or enable (whitelist) some scripts for the session or even permanently (so that they are always loaded when the page is accessed). NoScript...

Flash’s Decline on Lifehacker, from 2006 to 2010

Flash’s Decline on Lifehacker, from 2006 to 2010

Just like it isn’t on the iPhone and iPod touch, Adobe’s Flash browser plug-in will not be on the iPad, and there are a whole lot of opinions about that decision. Predictably, Steve’s apostles are smug, Adobe’s pouting, and the rest of us will have to field questions from our relatives about why they keep seeing a blue lego piece. Flash usage has been declining over the years anyway, and a few web publishers have shared numbers to prove the point. 32% of visitors...

Hackers Don’t Tinker Because They Got Invited

Hackers Don’t Tinker Because They Got Invited

Mark Pilgrim’s excellent exposition on the “tinkerer’s sunset” (an idea Alex Payne put forth in his iPad piece I linked earlier) got me thinking about the nature of tinkerers, and whether the iPad really represents a sunset for them. The optimist in me thinks it couldn’t even if it tried. First, know that I fundamentally agree with Alex and Mark: the closed nature of the iPad turns me off, and I wouldn’t give one to my kid if I were encouraging her...

Avira Malware File-Extension Statistics

Avira Malware File-Extension Statistics

Malware is a generic term for trojans, viruses, worms, keyloggers, rootkits and other malicious code. The Avira blog has posted an interesting statistic about the malware that gets distributed by urls either in emails, on websites or other ways. Most computer users probably associated file types like exe as dangerous when they encounter them on websites or in emails and might be surprised that those files only make up 53% of the file extensions used. Followed by no file type at all (e.g....
