MobyDock (Mac OS X style dock for Windows)

MobyDock is a cool application. It’s the best Mac OS X dock knock off I have used on Windows. The animations are smooth, and the application is just pretty. On top of that they have a nice product web page which is good sign of quality software. Crappy or ugly web sites are a good way to…

dasBlog feature: Search Result Referrers

I have to admit, one of the more fascinating aspects of having a blog are the ways that people find it. I’m constantly amazed at how people get here. Having a good amount of Google Juice helps put some of my posts pretty high in google’s results. Well because dasBlog just places all referrals together, it’s really…

Rio Carbon vs iPod

The Rio Carbon was a device I didn’t want to like. My main reason for not considering it was that it’s only 5GB and I was looking for an iPod replacement. However, as I’ve used this device it’s really grown on me. I was able to transcoded all my WMA lossless audio down to 11…

iRiver H320 vs iPod

 I was really excited to see a device like the iRiver H320. However, upon opening the device the experience turned out to be an extreme disappointment.

Mouse goodies

This past weekend I picked up the new Wireless Notebook Optical Mouse. This thing is very cool. Has a little wireless transceiver that attaches to the mouse and turns off the optical part so you can transport it.

Favorites Synchronization Software

For the longest time I wanted a program that would easily and seamlessly synchronize favorites across multiple machines. The fact that each machine has its own favorites store has made the feature rather useless to me, and I’ve started resorting to less then ideal means (like Outlook Notes) for storing important bookmarks. I considered writing…

Virtual PC 7

Well I am really late to the game here, but I never got a chance to shout out that Virtual PC 7 is available. I don’t think folks outside the product team will appreciate just how difficult it was to get this product out the door. It took a bit longer than we’d all hoped,…
