Nenad Hrg's OnlyStopWatch has what we need in a desktop stopwatch, plus a few extras. For starters, it's portable freeware, so you can take it with you on a USB thumb drive. It can time to the millisecond, so it's precise enough for nearly any use. It counts down, too; and you can start the Stopwatch feature from a preset time point. A fullscreen view and high-contrast color options make for good visibility at a distance or outdoors. And you can start and stop the timer with a mouse click, which means any device that can activate … Read more
OnlyStopWatch is a very light app that dedicates itself to counting time for you. The download was extremely fast and the installation was so quick that it was almost imperceptible. This app doesn't claim to do more than its title -- and it doesn't. But what it does do, it does fairly well.
OnlyStopWatch opens to a large format visual digital timer. The program gives you the choice of six color combinations for the timer and allows you to choose what time denominations to view. You can view hours, minutes, seconds, and milliseconds. You have the choice of … Read more

Why do wireless carriers have to make everything so complicated? Wireless subscribers should be able to subscribe to the service they want and need and not be forced to take services they don't want or need.
This seems like a simple enough concept, and yet customers who want a smartphone but only want to pay for voice services can't get it. And customers who want to forgo voice service for data-only services are also not able to get what they want. In this edition of Ask Maggie, I offer some advice and explanation to a reader on this … Read more
The new iPad launched supporting both AT&T and Verizon, as it did with the previous model. The big difference with carrier support with the third-generation offering was the addition of LTE to both devices. For the AT&T version, it was business as usual, only faster. But to support LTE with the Verizon model, a SIM card had to be added to the device.
GSM carriers and its users have enjoyed the flexibility of a SIM card for years, with the ability to switch between devices by simply removing their SIM from one device and placing it … Read more
Onkyo's new "iOnly" family of iPod speakers has three models, iOnly Play (ABX-100), iOnly Stream (ABX-N300), and iOnly Bass (SBX-300).
I have the SBX-300 in for review, and it sounds pretty nice. The look is basic, but the black cloth speaker grilles, brushed-aluminum base and carry handle, and the retractable dock give the SBX-300 a nice sense of style. An LED display peeks through the upper right hand side of the grille and indicates volume and bass boost level. The Active Bass Control Circuit boost is available in two steps, via the small remote control. Power is … Read more

The system will only allow Safari to run in plain vanilla form without any plugins (including Flash) or extras running, and if you quit the browser then the system will restart back to the … Read more
