Top 5 Free Software Picks over at Cnet, plus alternative to! ~GL



Alot of time I'm critized for not talking about software... And cheap/free software. So here is a post just for that!!! While at heart, I'm a big gadget nerd, but where would we all be with out software... and our wallets would be alot happier if it was free software to boot.

Podcaster Tom Meritt (Buzz Out Loud) does a weekly top 5 video for CNET. And this week his top 5 was all about the free Software. Great picks. I use 3/5 of the stuff listed.



Also a great website to check out for cheaper or free alternatives to main stream software is the site http://alternativeto.net I use them every now and again to find solutions on the cheap. Check em out!

Neat little Cable management Desk Hack.




At the last dumpstertech podcast Randy noticed the little desk modification I made recently. I bought this $10 ikea cable management rack. It's pretty neat and really helps, plus it even can hold a power strip in it. You will need a power drill however.  I actually originally saw this on a few desks in Lifehacker's Featured Workspaces.  But Ikea actually offers several cable management solutions here.

So take a look and enjoy.
