ShowMySoft – what’s installed on my computer? [Freeware]

Do you know what programs you have installed on your Windows computer? Ever had a situation where you wanted to use an old program, but weren’t sure whether it was still on your machine?

If only smartphones weren’t so easy to lose. But they are, and it’s a growing problem. Around $2.5 billion worth of these devices are lost or stolen each year, and it’s not just the financial cost but also the increasingly vital data that we store on them that’s the real worry.

DeskNotifier – cool app lets you receive and reply to SMS messages and Android phone notifications on your PC instantly [Freeware]

We don’t know about you, but we often miss important messages or SMS texts coming in to our mobile phone because we’re working on the computer in another room, or the phone is buried in a pocket or bag and we don’t hear the alert chime.

Google Cloud Print – how to print out files from your Android phone to any printer for free [Freeware]

Smartphones are cool, but they do have a couple of serious limitations. For one, they can’t go out in the morning and pick up your newspaper from the porch, and for another, they’re pretty useless when it comes to printing out information. Sure you can move the files/data from the phone to the PC and then print, but what if you want to print directly from the phone?

You don’t have to look far to find any number of research studies which point out the dangers of sitting down all day as we do our jobs in front of computer screens.
