Making a box shot for your own software can be difficult if you're using an image editing program. What you really need is some software that is made just for doing such a task, but the problem is finding one that is free! When I was looking for something else I came across a program called 3D Box Shot Maker, and it does everything that I would expect it to.

We've got a treat for you if you're a Windows user and you've been lusting over a sweet 3D Desktop. Shock 4Way is a free application that gives you four virtual desktops to work with. I wouldn't say it is quite as good as the DeskSpace app, but it also doesn't cost $20 to buy.
What was going on this week at CyberNet News and Learn Firefox? Here's your chance to catch-up if you missed something!
Earlier this week, Matt Cutts wrote about his favorite pedometer, the Omron HJ-720ITC. When he mentioned that it has a USB connector and comes with software so you can upload and track your data on a computer, I thought it was worth checking out. It didn't sound like any ordinary pedometer to me, and sure enough, it's not.
Google gets both praise and criticism for having such a plain and simple search page. While I like the simple page with nothing other than a white background and a search box, others are looking for something more. If you prefer to use Google as your primary search engine but you want to personalize the page, checkout Groovle.
One of the things you may have noticed with Flickr is that the photos will have another image overlaid on top of them called spaceball.gif (here is an example photo) This prevents you from copying the address to the image or being able to save it to your computer.
I can't believe that I'm actually saying this, but I may have stumbled across a text editor that is better than Notepad++! In yesterday's Daily Downloads I included a free program called PSPad, which sounded like a nice text and code editor.
I started off my morning with some Ubuntu 7.10 action since the first Beta had just been released. I downloaded the 688MB ISO image, burned it to CD, and got started immediately with the Live CD. It took a few minutes for it to boot up, but that's expected since I'm running the operating system off of the CD I burned.
Apple warned several days ago that it was possible that the latest update to the iPhone could brick unlocked phones, but most people took it as a scare tactic. Unfortunately for them, Apple was right and many of the modified phones no longer work. Fortunately though, not all of the unlocking software causes problems, and the update from Apple is optional.
Welcome to Daily Downloads brought to you by CyberNet! Each weekday we bring you the Windows software updates for widely used programs, and it's safe to assume that all the software we list is freeware (we'll try to note the paid-only programs).
Today’s Funny Friday article is taking a look at parodies.
Our Recommended Tags plugin for WordPress 2.3 has only been out a few days, but we just released a pretty big update thanks to some of the feedback we've received via email. This plugin works off of the new WordPress 2.3 tagging system, and having spent several hours putting this together I have to give the WordPress development team major props.
If you visit Google today, you'll notice the usual logo has been replaced with the one you see pictured to the right. It's Google's 9th Birthday, and they're celebrating! While there are actually several dates that could be considered Google's birthday, clearly they acknowledge today, September 27th as their official birthday, the day that they became incorporated and their name was official [...]
The first 24 hours of Halo 3's release was HUGE for Microsoft as Xbox 360 users forked out a total of $170 million for the game. Remember, that was only the first 24 hours! That $170 million was enough to make the launch of Halo 3 the biggest in entertainment history - bigger than any Hollywood movie.
One of the goals of Firefox 3 is for the Mac version of the browser to feel like a real Mac application. Mozilla tried to show a little bit of love to the Mac fans in Firefox 2 by making it fit in a bit better, but all the Mac users I know are still running it with a Safari-like theme.
The other day we wrote about the upcoming Live Search redesign, and last night Microsoft posted an official announcement on it. On the Live Search blog they said that they are rolling out the new design across the world right now, but I still don't see the changes.
