There are two types of licenses, which vary in opportunities (collects a calendar, ticket system, etc.) but I have number of projects, clients or in one is not limited. These are solutions that are developed from the open source and grew very successfully in the application.
The primary purpose activeCollab organization of the project. Deadlines, exchange files and lists the basic tasks of the possibilities of this detailed application.
More advanced users will appreciate the ability to track employee work (time tracking) as well as a calendar. Favorite greater the advantage, however activeCollaba ability to create their own plug-ins, completely changes the interface and API.

- Fully adaptive, the wealth of features, your data remain

- You must have your own server

IMPRESSION - If you need more options and information you want on your own server, activeCollab is a reliable solution


Microsoft Office finally on the Internet. Besides being a bad name, Workspace is unfortunately application that Microsoft is not supposed to. With the spread of Web applications outside the Web 2.0 sphere of development and Google Docs, and Microsoft decided to go this route. Mesh and Silveright Redmond are the main pillar, and with them appeared and Workspace.
This is useful in applications so that documents can be shared with others, but unfortunately there are a huge blemish. Documents can not rotate within the Workspace, although they can create and organize.
Although it is understandable that Microsoft does not want to jeopardize his Office, without these opportunities Workspace lose any meaning. Application itself has a nice interface and extremely fast. When Microsoft decides to allow work on documents, Workspace in no respect to the daring delayed for

- speed, price

- Do not allow work on documents

IMPRESSION - With Google Docs, Zoho and similar applications, why even use Workspace

EXPRESS - Excel for Society

Did you know that the "social" or-sharing capabilities that Excel is missing? Just to direct Express, a very specialized web-based application. The basic functionality is to work on Excel files, production files, and save more.
To documents CTO easily organized, to consist of tags, the system notes and files. Individual documents can be compared side-by-side or copy only certain fields within the document.
Given that the documents can be shared with others, specifically the possibility of obtaining useful information when the document is opened or changed.
Depending on the user that the document, you can set all the user with him can do so, edit, download and more. Interface and is not the most attractive but serves the purpose and provides new opportunities to work spreadsheet documents.

PLUS - Unique features and simplicity
MINUS - I do not support Firefox, Safari or Opera
IMPRESSION - If you are running Excel documents, Express will serve

ZOHO - The Complete Package for the Office

One step away from the Docs, Zoho offers applications not only for text documents and spreadsheets, but also a wiki, planner, chat, database and others.
Unlike Docs, Zoho applications have many more opportunities, for example, add styles in the texts. However, unlike the large text on your desktop processors, the above-mentioned possibilities are not hidden within the unnecessary menu.
You can save documents as templates, but also to share with anyone either, not only with customers Zoho. Most of the applications is completely free, so you will only pay for some applications, and that only with an increased number of users or projects, for example. Zoho is not overly beautified interface such as Google, but for those who do not wish to be fully Google "eco-system" or should be more opportunities than those that Google Docs offers a very good set of services.

- Free, great applications and a large selection of applications

- confusing system of subscription

IMPRESSION - probably the best set of online office tools

GOOGLE DOCS - Documents on the Google Way

Google Docs is a direct competitor to Microsoft Office. The basis of functionality allows you to write documents, save on the Internet and send to friends.
Docs supports Word, Open Office, Excel and PowerPoint formats, and documents can save in the above-mentioned, as well as PDF or RTF, or PPT.

Although there is no possibility such as Microsoft applications, precisely because of this extremely easy to use. Adding pictures in documents and is even easier than in Word, although does not support so many formats.
Documents that you create can be sent and their collaborators at the same time to collaborate on documents. Learning, developing plans and similar activities with Docs and Gtalk in the background are very practical. Opening of documents every time the new card is still sometimes pain.

PLUS - Free, work with others, supports all popular formats
- The availability of documents depends on Google

IMPRESSION - Quality set of tools to work with most types of documents

AMAZON S3 - Space is Almost Unlimited

If you mention Box.net or Rapidshare does not offer enough space, a web server is too expensive, S3 could be sufficient. Amazon has decided to rent a sizable area. Given that this is a service available via the API, HTTP and FTP, your options are not limited to beckup or to save your data from your Web applications, tempting simplicity with a low price is very tempting.
With a few dozen client applications for S3, automatic backup is also very simple. No matter how practical S3 was, is not flawless. In June they were six hours in the fall of the service, many companies and Web sites could not get to their important information. Many did not feel it, but the ones that are the basis of these data operations are definitely felt. Use of space and traffic is charged by usage, so that no advance payment.

- Budget, a simple

- No right interface for the Web
IMPRESSION - Make a large number of data available on the Internet for a small price

BOX.NET - Digital box

If you have more than 10 MB that you want to send to a friend, e-mail is no longer an option.Box.net is nothing more than a hard disk on the Internet, but the competition is different in small, fine advantages.
Free registration you get a limit of 1 GB of space and 10 GB of traffic per month. Monthly join increases the limit on the traffic, increases the number of users who can access the disk itself and sizes, depending on the join. Their advantage Box.net see opportunities for companies and organizations, which receive the possibility of branding sites (which is always a lot of nice).
Their data, you can access and mobile phone. Box.net can be much more useful to those who Rapidshare is not enough, but do not want to buy your own server, hosting or access the data via FTP.

PLUS - a simple function, interface understandable and beginners
MINUS - Additional those with their own FTP solution
IMPRESSION - Practical applications, but insufficient opportunities that would not be replaced

NetVibes - My home, my freedom

And if most home more often on our browsers search engine, most often as, NetVibes is imposed as an excellent alternative. Not only do other than search engine offers far more opportunities than, for example. Google IG with your widget, the interface is extremely easy.
As the browsers are creating cards, and NetVibes allows the creation of their own, such as pages. On each page, add widgets or mini-applications such as weather forecasts, to'do lists, applications for Facebook and others.
In addition NetVibes can be used as an RSS reader, adding the page you want.
Do not expect any paid ads, because they are in NetVibesu decided to sponsor through the monetization of content that you choose if you want. NetVibes is a powerful under the hood, easy to use and free.

- Simple interface with a lot of opportunities

- The major resolutions could be better solved organization applications
IMPRESSION - Alternative to ordinary home page, potentially useful to anyone

Malware in Google ads

Such links are a great danger for users because Hacking & Cracking, instead of exploiting the security failure, now deliberately malware through legitimate ads on Google, where would never thought that the word about the fraud. This situation leads to the question - who is to blame for this situation? Google, which does not test the credibility of links or users themselves, who eventually drop Fraud Bin victims. In any case, the Google want to avoid such problems in the future and are working to remove links that carry malware from its advertising network.

Free to the movies

Discovered the flaw in Adobe software for distribution of video content that allows free access to the entire content without his purchase. Users of services for buying and borrowing movies or television series and over the Internet on sites such as Amazon.coma can with the help of appropriate software for free backup and later see the complete video. The problem is in Adobe server for distributing Flash video content that it protects no security, but only sends the appropriate commands client software on the user's computer to run, or pausing or stop playing. In fact, before you purchase the content the user can see a clip certain length in order to verify that you are interested in him. But after the trial period for viewing minister only sends the client software control command to stop playback, while the content and still continues to open transfer to the user in order to optimize the reproduction in the case of purchase. By using software like Replay Media Suite such a "protection" can easily pass and complete content can be backup on your computer and watch later.

No matter what he says about the first full version, the authors themselves who are behind this project is recognized as very much still has a job, when one looks lists options that intend to implement in the coming versions, and anything else that still needs to be done, we must admit that they are pretty ambitious. Luckily a large part of that has already been made, which gives more weight to their recognition that a player on this have yet to work, but also confirms the fact that Songbird is already a quality player who will be only better.

Specifically, the Songbird is a cross iTunes and Firefox because it is based on Mozilla XUL-in (XML User Interface Language) and rendering Engine Gecku in which it is based on Firefox, and looks and feels about as iTunes. Some of them like to call the Firefox and multimedia player.
But what really distinguishes Songbrid the integration of Internet browser with support for the card and use a range of interesting web-based service. Songbird first launch will be asked to approve the installation of six plug-ins, support for the iPod, QuickTime, SHOUTcast Radio, Concerts, Last.fm and mashTape.

Open the link card integrated within the browser Songbirda and going to some site or blog on which has music, the special panel, in which all the songs will be listed and they can be very easily and retrieved.
It is possible to find images from Flickr, movies from YouTube, the news from Google and biographies of the service last.fm and is fully automatically if available connection to the Internet. Another Songbirds forces is a very flexible interface, so the content generated extras pretty well organized and unobtrusive. Of course, there is also support for skins or feathers, so to call guys responsible for the development of Songbird, so visually it can straighten out exactly the way it suits you.

From 3.7 to 5.5 GHz

Although we recently wrote about how to Nehalem (processors are now known under the name Core i7) does not suffer overly overclocking because raising voltage RAM can lead to the destruction of processors - we must pull all that we said. (What does that say to you, we were displayed ...) Japanese enthusiasts with "the code name" duck so succeeded i7 Core Processor Extreme Edition 965, which nominally runs on 3.73 GHz, 5.51 to drive GHz. For this purpose he used Asus motherboard horn Rampage II Extreme that the BIOS supports the numerous ways overclocking different things. Duck is, otherwise, last year already "entered into history" when the overclocking Pentium 4 631 at 8.14 GHz.

KeyLemon Screen

Just your smile, all you need to login. Make your face your password ...
It can be said that it was checking the identity of a person, originality of a work, etc. In the process of authentication to the system, The Weakest Link is, I try to guess user.
Password (password) are time became tedious, users were severely memory, and to ease, they usually use a combination of his name and surname, date of birth, car registration tags, the names of children, etc.
As time growing number of services that the user uses the Internet , And each of them again requires authentication, this brings another dimension and the problem with password policy rules, and the user, of course, used the same password for all services.

KeyLemon Screen start the project as a group of students who have developed
as a screensaver, which in itself will be on and did. I tested the program with a Genius USB camera Integrated camera and the Asus notebook, the Windows XP and Vista Bussiness.LemonScreen is your job done without major problems. I tried even a version with and without glasses, all have passed the office.
The only problem may occur when you reduce the brightness, or if it is too strong beam of light falling on the camera. With Ctrl Alt Delete can "circumvent" this way of authentication, "kill" a process that starts LemonScreen and unlock the computer.

The software is difficult 1.84 MB, and the installation itself is trivial.
After these few steps you must still make a "scan" the face, or do his model, in order to scan the camera had to compare what. After that, remains to enter the main (master) password, if you happen to our software, "replaces the other, or we do not recognize, that we can unlock it manually. Then he defined the time that the computer will automatically shut off if no action on it (screensaver), and the same can be done in the options program, or a combination of keys Alt L.

Light in the darkness

Keyboard for those who for some reason or prefer to type in darkness, and they are not secret agents ...

Logitechov Illuminated Keyboard is one of the rare keypad with backlight that are not intended for the players. In fact, style, and the cost it is clear that this is a device from the business segment Logitech offers that emphasizes elegance and incredibly thin profile. With the depressed feet thick Illuminated Keyboard is just 9.3 millimeter, which, at least at first glance, does not overly self-confidence, because usually with thin tipkovnicama go and a short travel keys and feeling as when the tipkanja notebooks. For those who did not try it, suggest that any attempts to do.

Key mechanics is made to force pressure evenly transmitted regardless of whether she hit the edge of the keys themselves, or central, and Logitech's called "PerfectStroke Tehchnology." Behind the names sound "technology" hides good guides, which give a good feeling tipkanju. The keypad is hard and lifting, so that despite the slender design is not the easy varieties and excellent lies on the table, without any skating and moving.
It whereby the keypad is named Illuminated is, of course, the background light below the key. Instead of blue at G15, Illuminated used entirely white light in the four minimum strength of light in the past the key, a very well-lighted signboard on the keys that do not even look like lighted, but as they are derived from the lighted white.
This is especially at night gives very good readability without keyguard burning any desktop or main light, and the day is not even notice that the keys shown below light.

All the keys are full sized, and there is an additional set of "multimedia" and orange FN key which, for each of the functional keys in order triggers additional function. These can program with the help of the accompanying Logitechovih drivers. The only key that is missing (as to whom - we did not at least) is Scroll Lock, which is useless anyway, and Logitech is the right decided to eject from the keypad.
Good, quiet, a little too soft, but very good quality keyboard that truly allows keyboarding night without lights burning.

Aluminum charmer

New Macbook, the cabinet made from a single piece of aluminum and multi-touchpadom. Apple access to quality workmanship and detail that is what distinguishes it from similar Competitive translators.

Redesign of new translators Appleovih most came to the expression at Macbookova. After IMac, parting with a white polycarbonate plastic and are experienced Appleovi cheaper notebooks. However, it is not only about the turn of the new materials, but about a completely new approach to creating a cabinet that is made from only a single piece of aluminum. The result is UniBody - slowly and firmly housing clear and beautiful shape. I raise it, holding him to only one angle, you will not feel the burden or strain any part of your computer.
LCD from the previous generation replaced the new LED screen resolution of 1280x800 pixels folded thin alu cover. Despite the slender, almost equally steadfast as the lower part of housing. Screen overwhelmed at first sight. It is very sharp, living color and exceptional brightness.
New Macbook runs the same Intel Core 2 Duo (Penryn) processor as well as the previous generation, but with a fast 1066 MHz bus, a fast 1066 MHz DDR3 memory and, what is most important, new and Ĩipsetom nVidia GeForce 9400M graphics. Tests showed that the new platform provides better results than the predecessor with a slightly faster 2.1GHz processor. Photoshop CS4 is faster at 10%, iLife application of 15-20%, but the biggest improvement showed demanding games that were a precursor to the Intel graphics were useless. So we Call of Duty 4 played on the resolution of 1024x768 with average 35FPS. Testing we reveal and improved cooling, so that even after all the tests Macbooka bottom is not heated across the border, which would be holding in her lap done annoying.
if no change processors, Apple has made with the best promotion in the history of these computers.
