IObit Smart Defrag: A Superb Hard Drive Defragmentation & Optimization Tool [Windows]

Penniless Because of the Holidays? 8 Money-Stretching Subreddits

A secret corporation doesn’t want you knowing that prices actually go up on average from Black Friday until the end of December. However, immediately following the West’s orgy of gift giving, prices become flaccid. How do we, as consumers, take advantage of this situation? Having personally gone broke after throwing away money on underappreciated gifts, it occurred to me that finding good deals was more important than ever.

Keep All Of Your Notes Organized And Off The Cloud With Free, Portable, Treepad Lite

In these heady days when everything seems to be cloud-based, is there still room for a lowly desktop note manager? I think there is, and we covered quite a few of these over the years – WikiPad, Zim, and more recently, ResophNotes. Today, it’s time to take a look at an oldie – a free, portable utility Treepad Lite. It’s a classic, but it received its most recent update back in 2009.

Take Your Books With You On Windows Phone With The Amazon Kindle App

One of the first apps to launch on Windows Phone 7 back in October 2010, Amazon Kindle is now available for Windows Phone 8 devices.
