Linkman Lite from Outertech is a free tool for collecting, centralizing, and managing bookmarks from 10 different browsers.

Believe it or not, we manage to make it through a whole podcast without barely mentioning the iPhone! Sure, it comes up just for a second, but we spend the majority of the time discussing desserts that begin with the letter "H". If anyone at Google is listening, we're down to "Honeycake" or "Hamantash" for the next Android update beyond the forthcoming "Gingerbread" release.
Speaking of Android, we spend time in this episode talking about how Froyo looks on the HTC Evo 4G. Kent thinks it looks great, but no one … Read more

Gone are the days when completing a crossword puzzle meant hunkering over a folded newspaper or a puzzle book.

TheWorld 3.1 is a Web browser based on the engine that powers Microsoft Internet Explorer. Like Internet Explorer 7 and 8, TheWorld has a multithreaded frame that is supposed to prevent window freezing.
The browser's default appearance is simple, yet it feels cluttered because its toolbar is packed with icons. Its user interface is similar to that of Internet Explorer 7 and 8 except for a few minor details. The icons are bubble-like and the top toolbar is on the right-hand side of the screen next to an extra option that lets users hide it. TheWorld also supports … Read more
As surprising as it may seem, T-Mobile has never had an LG phone on its network, at least until this summer. The companies' first-time collaboration will be marked by three new phones: the LG Sentio, LG dLite, and LG GS170. The Sentio and the dLite will have T-Mobile's Social Buzz, an app designed to give an easy view and access to favorite social-networking sites.
The LG Sentio appears to have a 3-inch touch-screen display, a virtual QWERTY keyboard, e-mail, messaging, 3G, GPS, a 3-megapixel camera, an MP3 player, and visual voicemail. The LG dLite has an interesting hidden matrix … Read more
There was a lot of chatter about "Facebook Lite," a stripped-down version of the social network's profiles and home page, when it stumbled out of the gate last summer and was widely interpreted as a hit on Twitter. Facebook pitched it as a test for "countries where we are seeing lots of new users coming to Facebook for the first time and are looking to start off with a more simple experience."
For the casual eBay user, the options present within the eBay Web site itself are probably enough. More serious auction-addicts, however, need advanced tools for searching, monitoring auctions, and bidding. Prospector Lite supplies these tools in a well-designed, intuitive format.
Prospector Lite's interface is browserlike and intuitive, making it easy to navigate. Users can surf eBay just as they would in a regular Web browser, but Prospector Lite adds plenty of handy eBay-specific tools. Users can create complex searches that use a wide variety of different parameters; these searches are then saved in a handy tree format, allowing users … Read more
