Shopitize – your smartphone is about to revolutionize the shopping business

Do you remember when shopping meant spending hours wandering around crowded stores to pick out the week’s necessities?

We may still shop, but we’re now better informed and less inclined to accept retail prices at face value unless we have done an online comparison first.

Google Reader is shutting down – what you must do NOW!

So Google has decided to shut down Google Reader on July 1st (aargh!), the most popular RSS news reader in existence. This is a terrible decision for many reasons, since many people use Reader to browse sites that would otherwise be unavailable (e.g. if you’re in Iran). But don’t panic, we may have a cunning plan. We think we can help you make an easy transition to a better alternative, hopefully in just a few clicks.

LibreOffice 4.0 is now available, so why on earth are you still using Microsoft Office? [Freeware]

I’m absolutely astounded by the number of people who still insist on spending large sums of money to buy or upgrade the Microsoft Office suite for their computer. Why are you doing this? Sure, if you’re hamstrung by a stupid I.T. department or you work for a prehistoric government body, then you have no option, but the rest of you? Really? Srsly?

StoryBook – open source novel writing software will make you a millionaire…maybe [Freeware]

Some wise soul once said that everyone has one good book in them, but unfortunately they forgot to mention how we’re supposed to dig it out and get it published. Luckily there’s no shortage of folk willing to take our money to help us produce the next Shades of Potter blockbuster, ahh…but if only they could guarantee success.

PaperKit – free printable grid paper for all [Freeware]

Graphing or grid paper is one of those hidden treasures that you never realize you’re going to need, until you need it. Sure if you’re a scientific type, student or a mathematician then you’re clearly friends with the stuff, but the fact is that it can be used in lots of places where you wouldn’t obviously think of it. Think about sketching, designing, drawing a plan or a map, just about any place where you need accurate scaleable illustrations.

Should I Remove It – helps you decide which programs you should uninstall [Freeware]

If you’re like most people, you’ll have a ton of software installed on your computer that you’ve accumulated over the years. You see programs are rather like socks. You obtain them from various sources over the years, use them and then they lie forgotten in your bottom drawer (or hard disk folders) for ever more or until you upgrade computers. Whichever comes first.
