Vivendi Games Mobile – free classic Sierra games available for your mobile phone

Vivendi Games Mobile looks to be making a push to deliver classic Sierra game titles reworked for your mobile phone. The idea is to supply the games free in exchange for some advertising time on your handset. It’s an attractive proposition, especially when you consider the quality of the games back catalogue that’s involved (Crash Bandicoot, Leisure Suit Larry, SWAT…etc). Unfortunately it’s all ‘over the air’ via your mobile operator at the moment, but that’s inevitably going to change sooner…

Werll…the freeware uploads your tracks (or directories of music) as email messages, you then enable Gmail’s POP download facility and from then on you can listen to your music streamed from Gmail.

3D Mailbox Level 2: LAX – your email service as an airport sim

3D Mailbox Level 2: LAX. Robert Savage has done it again. He’s launched a new email service based around his sim theme using Los Angeles Airport as the backdrop. Techcrunch’s Michael Arrington hated the first version, but I’m totally down with this weird stuff. Your email messages fly in as Jumbo jets? When you send an email to Malaysia it flies out on a Malaysian Air liveried 747? Australian emails to you arrive on Quantas Qantas? (oops) Cargo planes bring in your attachments?…

Nimbuzz. I’ve been playing around with this new Dutch chat and VoIP freeware for a few days now and it’s pretty cool.

Active Security Monitor – free dashboard widget lets you see your security status at a glance

Active Security Monitor is a free dashboard thingy for Windows that gives you a visual picture of the security settings of your computer.
