Unlimited free vpn!5 stars
The most salient point is that no registration, logging in or credit card is required. Just install, and connect. It does not save any logs, IPs, ports, user information or timestamps. And for ensuring privacy, OpenVPN with AES256 encryption and 128 bit AES-CBC for IPSec is employed. The main drawback is that after it connects, it opens the page of Twitter. Price: Free

The best hdr post-processing software4 stars
Although it is pricey, but it is a great investment. Unlike other tone mapping software it has tonnes of options and the added advantage is that it is nifty as compared to other bloated software. My only desire is that the developers change the GUI to charcoal colour. Highly recommended for photographers. Price: Free Trial ($99.00)

Not that effective3 stars
It's recovery was just at par with that of the freeware Recuva. I wasn't impressed as it managed to recover 89 files from my Bin, while another shareware found 138 files, and completely recovered them. Price: Free

It saved the day5 stars
My friend accidentally formated the MicroSD card while fooling around with his Nokia mobile. He brought forth his predicament to me, as he considers me tech savvy (which I can assure you that I am not). The first software that I used to recover the photos was my all-time favourite, Recuva, and to my utter disappointment it failed to find even a single file, even with its deep-scan option enabled. Then read the review by 'dpqbdp' and used this REMARKABLE freeware, and presto: 268 JPG images recovered, and out of which only 16 images were corrupt. And now my friend has promised me a pack of Cohibas. Price: Free

I have been using it since it was a freeware. The only drawback I feel is that of the interface. A face-lift is needed, other than that, it is the best in the business. Price: Free Trial ($29.00)

Excellent shareware4 stars
Though it's on the expensive side for such a utility, nevertheless, the mapping feature just provides hours of entertainment. The interface needs some face-lifting in order to be at par with the current software. If money can be spared then this software should be on the list of a power-user. Price: Free Trial ($49.95)

Good but not great.5 stars
It's a very nice audio player for an average listener, but definitely falls short of catering to a serious listener. The skins are interesting, but not all components of the player get skinned. The plus point is that it uses very light resources. Price: Free

It beats the rest by miles.5 stars
I have been using it since version 3.1 appeared on the scene. And ever since then, it's my default compression tool. At times it (version 3.81 build 1550) does fail to open password-protected RAR files. I hope this minor glitch is fixed in the next build. It's a must-have, so don't wait, download it now!

I gave it a test, and it fulfilled all of my needs without any hassles. Over all it's a great media-player. And to be honest it's very difficult for me to decide which one is the better, WinAmp or JetAudio. JetAudio has all the plug-ins bundled in, whereas, WinAmp relies on 3rd-party plug-ins. Price: Free

It locks the system without any leaks. Moreover, it can even lock the CD/DVD trays. Personally I like the feature of displaying a VIDEO while the system is locked. Although "1st Security Agent" has more features, this software is much more simpler. Give it a try. Price: Free Trial ($19.95)
