Free PDF Readers

We all know that Adobe Reader (formerly Adobe Acrobat Reader) is the default pdf program for many users - for numerous reasons which I won't go into here.

Opening the Win8+ Charms Bar

Accessing the "Charms Bar" in Windows 8+ (8, 8.1, 10...) is a convenient way to access certain settings, including (and especially) the WiFi networks flyout. If you are on the standard Desktop, such as when using "Classic Start Menu", and you are not using a touch-screen device, ...

Sumrando [FreeVPN]

I just stumbled on a relatively new (and new to me) FREE VPN named Sumrando , from an internet privacy and security company based in Cape Town, South Africa. Their free account gives you 1 GB a month, which I think is double what most other free VPN providers offer. SumRando Plans.png They also offe...

Free Audiobook Reader

I seldom listen to audiobooks on my PC, as my attention drifts or I fall asleep, but every now and then I do (or at least try). Most audiobooks can be played in nearly any media player, but a specialized audiobook player has various controls optimized to enhance it's use for that purpose. The main d...

Re: ShieldsUP!

Great site which I have used often in the past. You reminded me, however, to check it again with my new computer. Steve Gibson has always had some good info and programs, so be sure to check out his other stuff at GRC.com.

AdBlock, NoScript & Ghostery – The Trifecta Of Evil

AdBlock, NoScript & Ghostery – The Trifecta Of Evil Interesting and thought-provoking article as well as the comments. I highly recommend reading at least the article, if not both. Confession: I do use both AdBlock Plus and NoScript in Firefox, and AdBlock Plus alone in both Chrome and Internet...

Rename images by EXIF date

OK, I'm back with another neat single-feature graphic freeware. Namexif is a tool to automatically rename photos with the date they were shot. Don't you hate seeing a folder full of images with names like " IMG_0012.jpg ". Even worse, at least to me, is with the extensions in all caps, lik...
