There are many cloud services that allow you to upload and download your data from anywhere and Box is yet another multi-platform solution with a native Box app for Windows 8.

Box is already incredibly popular, with around 25 million users and 225,000 companies using it, including many Fortune 500 companies. Box offers a wealth of features and gives you a generous 10GB of free storage. Keep your eyes peeled because this can sometimes increase depending on Box promotions throughout the year. The Box app for Windows 8 makes it even easier to store, manage, and work with all your files and documents from your PC desktop.

The advantages of using a service like Box include the ability to access to all your files at all times, to always have the most up-to-date information about your business and to review projects and leave feedback on the go. And of course, if you’re a manager or team leader you can always keep tabs on the latest work from your team. This is particularly important for those that have large mobile workforces scattered across different regions or countries, although if your budget permits, you may be better off with a cloud-based collaboration app such as eXo Platform, Igloo Software, or Zoho Docs.


Effective management of relationships with customers is essential to the success of your business. Microsoft Dynamics CRM is Microsoft’s customer relationship management (CRM) business solution that aims to help companies market themselves smarter and sell more effectively.

As opposed to browser-based CRMs such as Insightly, Infusionsoft, and Pipedrive, Microsoft Dynamics CRM is packaged as a Windows 8 application that runs straight off your start screen.

Microsoft Dynamics CRM provides social insights, business intelligence, and productivity analysis to help you keep better tabs on your customers and opportunities. Microsoft Dynamics CRM is fully integrated with Microsoft Office and Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online so that you can access your data wherever you are.


Firefox users everywhere, rejoice! Mozilla has announced that they are making available an early preview version of their browser that was built from the ground up for Windows 8.

The browser is an early alpha build called Aurora and the announcement comes slightly after the company announced that the final build of Firefox for Windows 8 has slipped to early 2014.


Over the last year we’ve seen the quality of Windows 8 applications gradually increase and now that Windows 8.1 is on the horizon, we’re starting to see some unique apps that really set the platform apart.

Newseen is one of these apps, which has a unique view on how to read news and does the job much better than many fully-fledged RSS readers on the internet.


Video conversion has become a popular topic with me lately. I purchased a Google TV a few months ago, using the device to retire my old HTPC, which ran Windows 7 with Media Center set to launch upon startup. The problem is this — not all of my ripped DVD’s were in a format recognized by Plex, which now serves my home media to the living room.

Since purchasing the Vizio Co-Star, I have been slowly but surely working my way through the re-encoding of almost all of our movies, most of which had been ripped to ISO files in order to retain all of the menus and extras. Unfortunately, Google TV will not allow me to keep those options, but this is not the end of the world — I do not really need them, it was just a nice touch.

My latest experiment is using TEncoder, which is a powerful tool for converting video and audio files from one format to another. The app holds a lot promise, but may not work for every need — more on that later.

One of the most annoying issues I have faced lately with my laptop is that it gets overheated. The most common reason why it happens is that nowadays, laptops are equipped with fast processors and hard drives. When they work in a small space, they end up reaching a high temperature.

I found out about this issue when my laptop automatically went to sleep after getting overheated. Since then, I started looking for a handy utility that can help me manage my laptop’s temperature and find out if its overheating. If you dont manage the temperature of your laptop, you may end up with a dead hard drive from which you cannot recover any data at all. It can even cause a greater damage to your processor as well which may not be the most cheapest thing to repair.

To make things easier, I started looking for apps that can help me manage my laptop’s temperature and ended up using BatteryCare.


GIFs are considered an important part of the internet. They are being used extensively on websites as buttons, icons, banners, advertisements and what not. If you are wondering about how to create those images, you should know that creating GIF images may not be one of the most easiest things to do. If you search the internet you will come across a number of tools that can help you create GIF images using GIMP and Photoshop as well but it can be a very time consuming task especially when you don’t have any experience in using these programs.

In case of web applications, they may be better when it comes to creating GIF animations but they may not provide you with as many features as a desktop tool and may not be as simple as you think. Today, we came across a very handy desktop utility, GIFCam that allows users to create animated GIFs from their desktop. It’s more of a screen recording app that records your actions and save them as GIF images.


Google, Microsoft, Apple, Yahoo – all major software giants have a version of instant messenger. They are all free and have millions of loyal users. Many among of us have a problem with this picture. Our friends used to be scattered across all these IM platforms and there used to be an era where you’ll have to literally log into multiple apps to chat with your friends from various networks.

Trillian was the first multi platform chat client I encountered some eight years ago. It always had a free version and it has evolved a lot over all these years. Much has changed they way the app looks now and is way cooler than it used to be. Join me after the break to check out the newest avatar of Trillian.

In order to save time, we’re always looking for ways to do perform tasks faster and more efficiently. Whether you’re a businessman in a hurry or a lazy college student looking for simplicity, we would all like to perform tasks a little bit faster and with a little bit of less effort put in. Even simple tasks on your computer can be performed faster with FastKeys.

FastKeys is a simple program lets you control certain keys to command your computer to do just about anything!


Evolve is a small independently developed and published free client and website built for serious gamers.

Evolve is not game distribution software. It’s not set out to be a commercial program. It isn’t spammed with advertisements. It’s meant to work alongside other software. Unlike Steam, Origin,, Uplay, or most other programs out there, you can use it to centralise your entire gaming experience. Although often confused with them, it isn’t a replacement for any of the programs listed above.
