We've posted about other music download utilities in the past, and thought that Songr would be a good one to cover as well. It's a free program that can be used to search for music around the Internet, and more often than not can find high quality versions of the songs you're looking for.

A couple months ago I wrote about an app that could be used to download songs from Grooveshark, but it was limited to songs you searched for one-by-one or songs that are on Grooveshark's "Most Popular" list. The free SciLor's Grooveshark Downloader can do all of that as well, but it also has a some other awesome features.
I'm an undeniable fan of Grooveshark and have gotten quite a few people hooked on their free web-based interface for listening to their favorite tunes. Not everyone likes to stream music though, and that's when they turn to the free GrooveDown app to provide search and download capabilities powered by Grooveshark's vast library.
When it comes to my most important files I always have several copies distributed between multiple hard drives and offsite locations. This means I do a lot of backups, and an app called Bvckup has serious potential at making my onsite operations much easier.
Welcome to the WrapUp by CyberNet. This is a collection of news stories, downloads, and tips that we have collected over the last few days, but never got around to writing about.
Most current operating systems include some sort of indexed file searching functionality, and with that you can often get instant results back on any query you perform. As I pointed out a few weeks ago those tools still leave some things to be desired...
When it comes down to free FTP clients for Windows there are only a handful of them I ever hear people talk about. Normally they consist of apps like FileZilla or WinSCP, and some people just stick to the standard Windows Explorer if they are only connecting to FTP sites. I came across a different app the other day that I'd definitely put on par with apps like FileZilla. That app is FTP Rush.
If you have an iPhone there is no doubt that you've at least heard of the iPhone Dev-Team. They are the ones that are behind most of the iPhone jailbreaks and unlocks out there, and continue to deliver with each major release that Apple puts out.
Sometimes it's nice to download a video from a site so that you can watch it at your leisure without needing to be connected to the Internet.
I've always considered Microsoft's Process Explorer app to be the Windows Task Manager alternative for power users. Some part of me has always wished that Microsoft would ship this with Windows, and let people switch to using this more comprehensive solution without needing to download anything.
Don't you hate when you're downloading something (namely via BitTorrent) and it renders the rest of your computer nearly unusable. NetBalancer can fix this because it is a Windows program that gives you control over what apps are considered more important than others. You can, for example, designate priority to your web browser instead of your BitTorrent client.
Reading web comics can really brighten your day, and there is no question that XKCD is one of my personal favorites. Sometimes a quick little comic that takes less than a minute to read can actually put a smile on your face, and the free Windows app called Comical aims to make the most of those minutes.
About two months ago we wrote about how you could grab O&O Defrag Professional 10 for free, but now you can get one step closer to the latest version without dropping a dime.
There are some situations where it's nice to monitor the amount of bandwidth that's being used by your computer. One reason would be if your Internet Service Provider (ISP) caps the amount of data that you're allowed to plow through in a given month.
Our internet connections have become faster over the years, but with that our need for speed increased too. And sadly, having a fast internet connection does not mean the server you're downloading from gives you the speed you pay for. That's where download managers come in.
Coming across a good free screenshot application is a rarity these days. I used to be a big fan of FastStone Capture, but once they went from free to paid it felt like my money would be better spent on SnagIt (in the event I decided to purchase an app).
If you've ever toyed around with any digital camera for five minutes, you know that the pictures it takes often look different than what you saw in real-life. Common complaints include photos being too bright/dark or having an odd-looking color balance.
If you consider your music tastes a little more adventurous than FM radio, you probably already know that the internet is a gold mine for good yet rather unknown music. It has allowed independent bands to flourish and often, they're more than happy to put out some free MP3's to get the word out about their songs.
One of the new features in Windows 7 is Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) 7, and Microsoft decided to also offer the most of the same functionality to Windows XP and Vista users. Many of you will probably shrug this off as a pointless update, but it has something that is really useful to me. What is it?
Universal Music Australia is currently giving away un-DRM'ed music from some of their artists, including Akon and Colbie Caillat. Although the music that's on offer consists mostly of lesser known artists, this represents a major step in Universal Music's way of thinking about artist promotion.
