Yahoo! will also use Google’s advertising system and pass search data back to Google. Masahiro Inoue, Yahoo Japan President, said that after a thorough investigation they found that Microsoft’s...

Clipbox Stores Multiple Clipboard Entries

Clipbox Stores Multiple Clipboard Entries

If there is one thing that’s not so great about the Windows Clipboard, then its the fact that it only stores one entry at a time. New entries automatically replace the old entries, which can result in lots of copying and pasting if multiple items need to be pasted. Clipbox is a barebones clipboard extender that can store up to two thousand different entries with the possibility to increase that number further by editing the ini file in the same directory as the program executable....

Three Options To Navigate UP In Windows Explorer

Three Options To Navigate UP In Windows Explorer

I just finished reading a guide over at Freeware Genius explaining how to add an UP button to Windows Explorer in Windows Vista and Windows 7, to bring back the Windows XP functionality to those operating systems. The UP button was used in Windows XP to provide the user with an option to display the contents of the parent folder. Microsoft has removed the UP button and replaced it with a breadcrumb structure in the Explorer address bar since then. These breadcrumbs can be clicked on to...

100 % free Linux distributions

100 % free Linux distributions

On this, July 4, 2010, the day the United States celebrates the signing of the Declaration of Independence, I thought I would take a moment to celebrate that same day with a toast to those Linux distributions that shirk all non-free software. This means EVERYTHING on these distributions is protected under, at least, the GPL. There aren’t tons of these distributions and some of them are threatened, daily, to disappear from lack of support. So it is my honor to hopefully introduce...

Piles Lists Downloads, Recent Files, For Quick Access

Piles Lists Downloads, Recent Files, For Quick Access

Most programs do not integrate well with Windows Explorer, the standard file browser of Windows. Files that are downloaded for instance are not specifically marked for easier access. That’s probably not a problem if you download a handful of files a week but if you download dozens or hundreds per day it is. Files are usually dropped in a download directory that grows over time, some files get added, some deleted but the file count usually is high enough to make it more difficulty...

TV And Movie Organizer theRenamer

TV And Movie Organizer theRenamer

We have reviewed TV Show Renamer yesterday, a program that allows computer users to automatically rename downloaded TV show episodes to standardize the filenames. TheRenamer was suggested as an alternative in the comments by Gbot. The application offers to rename tv shows and movies that are loaded into its interface. Even better is the fact that it does not solely rely on the filenames but pulls information from external tv and movie databases such as IMDB, the TVDB, TV.com or Epguides. The...
