Junkanoo – free junk mail remover cleans up before the spam hits your inbox

Junkanoo [edited as it is malsite trap – apologies] is a freeware spam remover that cleans up the junk mail on your server, so you don’t even have to download it into your inbox. You can either set it up to clean automatically or do it manually if you’re the non-trusting type.

Migratr – move your photos to and from Flickr and other services

Migratr is a cool little Windows freeware program that lets you bulk move your photos between different online photo services. Currently supports Flickr, SmugMug, Picassa Web, Zooomr and 23HQ and the author is working on Yahoo! photos. Needs .NET.

SecVoice – secure cellular and landline calls

SecVoice. Freeware software to encrypt your phone conversations and gain the type of privacy you’ve always wanted. One tip, though. Try not to bellow into your handset on the crowded bus next time as it tends to remove much of the security from your chat. For Windows Pocket PC and Smartphones only.  Our secure phone technology uses two steps to encrypt the voice: 1. Key exchange (using a key exchange algorithm). 2. Voice Encryption (using a symmetric algorithm). These two…

Clickster – superb music machine

Robert Palmer’s Clickster is a superb free music player, MP3 music download client and Shoutcast stream recorder in one small package. What makes it different, and really interesting, is the fact that it searches and downloads music from the Web, not via P2P or any other type of sharing network. The result is that it’s very very fast, you can play music tracks directly from their location without downloading if you want, and Robert says because it’s not file sharing in the traditional sense, it’s legit….

Moka5 – infinite computers in your pocket

I’ve been playing with the new Moka 5 virtualisation software and it’s pretty cool. They call it ‘freedom computing’, but what they really mean is that you can install a Moka 5 ‘virtual’ computer to your iPod or USB drive, PC or whatever and then download and install any of a growing number of computer environments (called LivePCs) which are like small operating systems in a box. So for instance you can install the basic LivePC engine on a USB pen drive and then install Ubuntu or…
