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.


WinX DVD Ripper Platinum review

WinX DVD Ripper Platinum ($46, free feature-limited demo) does a very good job backing up and transcoding your DVD collection, including your copy-protected discs.


Advanced BAT to EXE Converter 2.75 review

Advanced BAT to EXE Converter helps you develop useful batch files, extends their range with advanced custom commands, then compiles them into executables which will run on anything from Windows 98 upwards.


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.


Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12 Premium review

Dragon NaturallySpeaking is the premiere voice-recognition software package. Its latest version adds additional accuracy.


Rackspace Cloud review

Rackspace was one of the first players in the cloud arena. The company recognised early that enterprises wanted faster, simpler ways to spin up and spin down servers. If the bosses are going to be fickle and impulsive, there will always be a market for companies that make it easy for the people curating the data to pivot. If the corporate vision is going to morph, the IT shops will want a way to morph with it.


GoodSync review

GoodSync is single-minded: It's intended to provide automatic synchronization and backup across folders and remote volumes. That narrow focus has two repercussions. First, the utility offers exhaustive, rich, and deep support for an array of services and options. Second, the learning curve for using the program to its best advantage is challenging. This program isn't for beginners, but other users will love it once they learn to use it--that is, if they learn to use it.

Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal review

Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal is a landmark release from Canonical, just understand your privacy rights over third-party access to your .search terms


Android Injector review

It's easy to get intimidated by Android, as a lot of its apps and services are designed more for hard-core geeks than the everyday user. And, initially, I was intimidated by Android Injector, a desktop application that allows you to install APK files (Android apps) on your Android phone and Android tablet - until I used it, and realised just how easy it really is.


WebStorm 5 IDE review

One of the great things about developing for the Web is the low barrier to entry. Many tutorials are available online, and you can learn about CSS and HTML from any website just by inspecting its code in any modern Web browser. Best of all, when it's time to start coding, any plain text editor--even Notepad--can do the job. So why should you spend $49 on WebStorm, a development environment for JavaScript, HTML, and CSS? The answer is that it might turn you into a better developer.
