How many file synchronization services exist these days? If you find that you are working with more than one computer on a frequent basis using a service such as Google Docs or Dropbox saves you the hassle of having to manually transfer the documents you need as it can all be taken care of for you.

The problem with the vast majority of tools that can be used to synchronize files is that they are based on cloud storage and there are limits on the amount of space you have available to you free of charge. This is not the case with Syncbox which enables you set up one computer as a server which will then push file to your connected devices

The availability of 64-bit systems to the regular user is fairly recent, even though they started to be developed in the 60’s, based on UNIX architecture. Microsoft released their first 64-bit operative system with Windows XP in 2001, but the true landmark came with Windows Vista. Not only was the OS itself more 64-bit oriented, but computers were also sold with improved components, more oriented to run 64-bit software. Windows 7 also boosted the usage of this computer architecture.

When I got through all the advantages of having a 64-bit operating system, I tried to improve the piece of software I use the most on my PC: my web browser. I’ve been a Firefox lover since my first contact with it, so it was a bit disappointing when I found there is not any 64-bit release of it. However, I found the (almost) perfect solution: Pale Moon, a Firefox clone which offers an improved and optimized version oriented for 64-bit systems.

I’m a big fan of Google products, and for many years I’ve used the web versions, since they’ve met my needs as well as or better than native apps have. When I upgraded to Windows 8, I quickly found an acceptable mail substitute with the default Mail program. My Google Reader was not replaced so easily.

While I’d tried over a half a dozen RSS feed readers for Windows 8, all of them were shoddily made or lacking in features. But finally, I’ve found one that improves on the default web interface of Google Reader: NextGen Reader.

Ever since I first found out that you could run virtualized applications on the internet, I’ve been fascinated by the possibilities it offered. Sure, cloud-based apps themselves are great, but I have used Windows for 20 years now and always find it a bit more reassuring to run a Windows program.

Spoon’s pitch instantly attracted me: running virtualized versions of popular Windows software on any PC. Yes, unfortunately, it’s Windows-only for now, although the developers say other platforms will be supported soon.

There are so many reasons to instantly want to try out an app like Spoon.
