Social Folders is a spamtastic way to sync content across social networks

There’s a large and growing number of online services and social networks clamouring for your attention and content. The mighty Facebook rules of course, as does Flickr for photos and Twitter for…um…tweets, but beyond these there are others coming up in the wings. Sites like Instagram for mobile photo sharing, Evernote, Picasa, Veoh, and more. One of the problems this presents is how to manage them all, and ensure that you keep control of where your content is going and…

Fingerprint Love Test Scanner turns your smartphone into a digital matchmaker [Daily Freeware]

She loves me, she loves me not. We’ve been looking for the perfect mate finder since the dawn of civilisation, or probably before. Our ancestors tried love potions, witchcraft, chemicals, even tea leaves to try and work out which one was the Right One for them. Well now you can, perhaps, add digital technology to the list.

Cloudmagic gives you the ultimate power of search everywhere [Daily Freeware]

The problem with computers is they generate data, lots and lots of data. Not only that, but they store this stuff everywhere, on your computer, on the web (aka the Cloud), on remote network machines, on Internet services. That makes it tricky to retrieve the right bit of data, when you want it, because first you’ve got to remember where the heck it’s stored.

Camtoprint lets you print out passport photos at home for free [Daily Freeware]

Going abroad on vacation is stressful enough as it is, without the added hassle of remembering to pack all the essential little bits and pieces. It’s even worse when you have to remember all the important things for the family as well, like, well maybe getting passports renewed or organized? The amount of trouble it can be even getting the photos done is enough to put you off travelling for good.

Maxthon for Android is the smartphone browser you’ve been waiting for [Daily Freeware]

I recently spent time gushing over the new Maxthon 3 desktop web browser in our Firefox alternatives post earlier this month, and the more I use it, the more impressed I get. It’s incredibly fast, uses very little memory (and with zero memory leak) and has a ton of really useful features built in. It also keeps my laptop running around 20 degrees cooler than Firefox, especially with lots of tabs open. Something to do with CPU load I guess.

PirateBox transforms any space into a open file sharing network

The technology news may be filled with talk of pirates, copyright and file swapping, but there are other variations on the whole network sharing paradigm which don’t get the same amount of sensationalist press. One example is the continued popularity of IRC, a communications channel which is heavily used by geeks to discuss special topics such as programming, and startup business life.

Word Bully tackles cyber bullying by prying into your child’s life

Bullying is a nasty and pervasive part of many children’s lives, and there’s no doubt that it needs to be dealt with in as many ways as possible, ranging from parent education (how to spot the signs) to classroom monitoring to pick up on signs early enough to stop something developing into a fully traumatic event. In this regard we need to applaud any technology that helps to fight the bully at source.

Wireless Network Watcher keeps an eye on your WiFi network connections [Daily Freeware]

It’s pretty easy for someone who’s determined to hack into your WiFi network nowadays, even if you think you’re safe with WPA encrypted password protection and all the rest. WEP security is all but useless, and yet people still rely on it to keep others from accessing their wireless LAN. The annoying thing is that anyone camping on your bandwidth costs you money, as well as using up your bandwidth allowance, which is a double whammy, let alone the security issues.

YUMI makes it easy to create your own computer on a flash drive [Daily Freeware]

What with all the current talk of tiny computers, it’s easy to forget that the idea of carrying around your own computing environment on a keychain is not new. Sure, very few technologies are as cool as the Raspberry Pi, or as cheap, but it’s still possible to impress the socks off your wannabe geek grandma if you know what you’re doing.

There are few things more frustrating or annoying than having to try and recreate your hard disk after the original has died for whatever reason.
