AlertBear RSS Reader

So I finally decided to check out AlertBear ( Let me put it short and say that BrotherS's hype was not unjustified.
I thought I would give you a quick overview over how AlertBear works and why it might be worth your time and attention to check it out.

Screenshot below shows the stack. It slides in with a super cool animation from the right onto the screen, and slides out just as sexily.

Zoom Player and Other Media Players

APP NAME:                    Zoom Player Professional
APP URL:             
APP Version Reviewed:     5.00 Preview 7
Price: $0 to $36 depending on edition


For the past few years, I have been a long time and devoted winamp user. But as of lately, winamp development has ground to a halt. Due to numerous bugs, like fast forwarding an avi file causing the player to freeze, I have begun the hunt for a new media player. Winamp was beautiful in that it could handle everything I threw at it with the exception of DVD playback.

Enter Zoom Player. Upon discovering this program, I was skeptical that any program could hold up to the torture I put my player through. However, I was soon to find out that I would be pleasantly surprised. Zoom player not only handled every format via a plugin (so you can customize it to your liking) I threw at it (RM, RAM, RV, QT, AVI, MPEG, Any audio format, AND DVD PLAYBACK), but it did it with class.

This is a rather large "mini" review by josh, who also managed to organize a discount for donationcoder members and get some copies donated for us to give away.

Flock is a browser based on FireFox that is tweaked to let you socialize more easily, and they've released a new beta version. Last week, I got a letter from Flock asking me to try the newest beta version. I tried it out for awhile and now you'll know what I think of it.

Here are some of the services Flock uses or interfaces with ... Flickr, Photobucket,, Blogger, MySpace, Live Journal,  Ebay, and RSS feeds.

This is a mini-review done by cliff_notes about the Flock service, which allows you to easily read news you care about and want to hear about.

Keepass Password Safe mini-review

I have, just recently and thanks to, come across this fine app. This app is an open source password manager that is freely available from the URL above. It has many advantages over other password managers, which will be discussed later on (the advantages), and it appears to have a terrific rating wherever you look. Now, onto the review.

Josh (The Shamurai) presented us with a fantastic minireview of KeePass, an app that is definitelly worth checking out!  You can also watch a screencast of KeePass: here.

MyLifeOrganized - a journey in search of the perfect GTD software

... I intended to write one about six months ago, when I first came across MLO, but it’s not what I am going to do now.  In fact, I’m not going to say much about it at all, except for describing my path from using it to not using it, and now back to using it again ...
