Download of the day – MediaMonkey

Are you still using the default Windows Media Player that came with Windows? Or have you moved on to Winamp? Maybe it is time to give MediaMonkey a try. The feature I like most about it is the ease at which I can add songs to various playlist, add ratings, download Album Art, Lyrics and Tag information from the web. This is not a product review and so there is not going to be an in depth analysis on the benefit of using MediaMonkey versus other media players. But this is a software I changed to after using Winamp for almost 10 years. Trust me, if you use it for a few days and utilize its features, then you will not be able to go back to Winamp.

Google Maps & Latitude

10 years ago, you might have met a friend online and after endless hours of chatting you finally agree to meet. Remember, 10 years ago, not many people had digital cameras and a digital picture were often rare. So you wait in the park looking all around you searching for someone holding “Internet For Dummies” in their right hand, while others think you just robbed an old lady. Today or maybe a couple of years in the future you are sitting in the same park, but this time you are not behaving as if the cops were after you. Instead, you have your eyes glued to your mobile watching that blue dot moving closer to you while those nearby think you are watching YouTube. Have you ever wanted to know where your friends are? Isn’t it just possible that you and I might have been on the same street, but …

Crazy Christmas

I don’t have a life! It is Christmas and the first thing that I do on waking up is play F-22 Lightning 3, a game so old that there is no product page any more and the last update was in 1999. After fulfilling my childhood dream of being a fighter pilot, I decided to check what was eating up space on my C drive. WinDirStat is a tool that anyone who can install an OS should have on their computer. It will show you which files are using up most space and the file type. As I suspected the page file was eating up more than 2 GB and after setting up my computer to clear page file automatically, I was browsing the folders when I noticed something strange. Firefox was my default browser, until Google came up with Chrome . Since Chrome still does not have extensions and RSS …

Download of the day – Tag2Find

tag2find – better than searching | tag everything on your desktop: “tag2find helps you to find everything on your desktop by simply using tags. Directories & folders were the structure of the 20th century. Now it’s time for something new – TAG IT!” Interesting, quite a good program, but still in nascent stage. The current version doesn’t support FAT32, in fact the current version supports only NTFS, and I only have NTFS only on C:\. Incidentally, I had changed the location of My Documents to D:\. So, right now it is practically useless for me, unless I change the file format on all my drives. I guess most home users would be using FAT32 rather than NTFS, so guess we have to wait for updates. But, don’t forget to check for updates, but this is a really good program, especially if you have a big collection of pictures, and MP3s.
