Current Status Add-on for Internet Explorer is supposed to let you monitor your server status, but it produced nothing but error messages for us.
The add-on icon is supposed to appear in your IE toolbar, but depending on your settings, you may need to find and manually it. To use the program, you'll have to create an account through the WebSitePulse site, which requires some personal information. When we clicked on the toolbar icon, a sidebar appeared and required that we enter our username and a key, which we then had to request from the publisher's Web site. … Read more

Easy To-Do Pro attempts to help busy users organize their lives. By providing a simple, intuitive system for managing the day's tasks, the program may have succeeded, but it's almost too basic.
This program is about as simple to operate as its graphics look. Users with a basic knowledge of other organizational software will instantly be able to navigate it. You can enter upcoming tasks in a simple list, much the same way a to-do list on paper would be written. However, the Easy To-Do Pro system allows users to input notes for each event, assign them priority, … Read more
Optimizing toolboxes can be ranked according to the robustness of their tools, and the areas of a system they allow you to manipulate. This utility weighs in on the light side, as it essentially allows you to enable or disable various Windows features. There's no monkeying around with the Registry or CPU -- Easy Tweak mostly replicates built-in Windows' tools.
Easy Tweak launches an attractive, easy to navigate interface. Instead of tabs, it uses a row of icons at the bottom, similar to the row of quick-launch icons on a Mac screen. Each category of tweak--system info, desktop, drives, … Read more
The only announcement to come from Kodak at PMA 2009 was for the EasyShare Z915: a $199.95 pocketable 10-megapixel compact camera with a 10X optical zoom lens and optical image stabilization. It's also powered by two, AA batteries and features a smallish (by today's standards at least) 2.5-inch LCD.
So it's a lot like the Canon PowerShot SX110 IS, except slightly higher resolution and a smaller LCD, but $50 less expensive. Or like the $299 Samsung HZ10W minus the 24mm-equivalent wide-angle lens or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3, though that one's $399 and features a … Read more

Some of these downloads are paid and others are free, but any one you choose will certainly put you in the spirit of Valentine's Day.
Play With Pictures takes one of the most essential image editing features and expands it into an entire program. It is not a photo editor, at least not in the mold of Photoshop. Play With Pictures takes the cut-and-paste feature and simplifies the process while building out supplementary features for creating online avatars, greetings cards, and other projects that require image mash-ups.
The interface presents a re-imagining of the image editing toolset, gearing users towards projects instead of stand-alone edits. The left nav toolbar even notes the steps needed to take a user from start to finish. Tools are categorized … Read more
