SDelete review

Sometimes, you don't want to carefully sort your files; you just want to delete them, and be sure they really are gone for good. For those times, the simplest, most bare-bones options is SDelete, a free command line utility directly from Microsoft's Windows Sysinternals.

Axon Idea Processor review

Axon Idea Processor ($135; limited demo) presents something of a paradox: I can see many potential uses for it that other applications will not fulfill, but the experience of working with it makes me wonder if it's worth it.

LiveDrive review

Livedrive is one of the first developers to the Windows 8 party with a new native app that works with the company's online storage and file sharing service. Livedrive already has provided apps for both Android and iOS, so this is a logical evolution for the company. It's available in plans that range from $8 per month on up, each with a 14-day free trial.

GNOME 2 Linux review

It seems fair to say that Linux users enjoy a degree of choice that's unmatched by the proprietary players in the PC and laptop world, what with the wide variety of both distributions and desktop environments from which they can choose. For that reason, it's all the more striking when large numbers of users express a marked preference for the same thing. Case in point? GNOME 2.

Bitdefender Internet Security 2013 review

Bitdefender Internet Security 2013 security suite costs £39.95 for a one-year licence for a single PC, £44.95 for up to three PCs and/or laptops, £69.95 for up to five PCs and £134.5 for up to 10. Two year licences cost £64.95, £79.95, £124.95 and £239.95, respectively. Three years of Bitdefender Internet Security 2013 costs £94.95, £109.95, £174.95 and £319.95 (so if you have 10 PCs and want to pay for three years it'll cost you just over a tenner a year. In that unlikely scenario). It contains all the normal features: antivirus, antispyware, firewall and more.

Firetask review

The Mac user without task management software has no one to blame but himself. The Mac App Store alone lists over 150 products when searching on the word "task." If you don't have the time to try them all, put Firetask (Mac App Store link) on your short list. Version 3 of Firetask is a clean, capable task management program built around the Getting Things Done (GTD) methodology. But you needn't be a GTD adherent to find the value in Firetask.
