VirusScan Home Edition 7.0
Can't beat the price of this item (after rebate). In the battle between Norton and McAfee, now McAfee offers a competitive upgrade rebate that allows you to get money back even if you are upgrading from a Norton product. I'd stack this anti-virus program up against anything on the market for the...
Dragon NaturallySpeaking Essentials 6
I was not sure of the quality of this software when I first bought it. I used other voice-typing programs in the past, and I have to tell you that nothing measures up to Dragon NaturallySpeaking Essentials 6!!! It was easy to install, not too difficult to master, and had great results. The speech...
Adobe Acrobat 5.0
Those of us who work with computers find files in all sorts of varying formats, so a tool like Acrobat is absolutely invaluable. One of the principal features is the PDF printer, which allows the user to break into any file and read or print it(e.g. an html page from a website) in a PDF format,...
from MacSpeech, Inc..
I purchased iListen to try out a Digital Recorder, (I have the Olympus DS-330). I'm runnning iListen 1.5.2 on Mac OS X 10.2.1. It works great for Direct Dictation, and once I figured out I had to create a different profile for the Olympus, accuracy jumped up there too. Really cool product, buy...
Dragon NaturallySpeaking Preferred 6.0
This is a breakthrough product. I had Dragon version 3 on a Pentium 2, and it was so frustrating that I gave up. I think that was most people's response to earlier versions of voice recognition software. Part of the problem was processor speed and memory. Now, with a 1.7 GHz Pentium 4 and 256 MB it...
from Trend Micro.
I knew choosing between Norton 2003 and PC-Cillin 2003 was always going to be difficult. I decided to download the demo versions of both for a week just to see how they will fair. In the end it was clear that PC-Cillin was the right antivirus for me. It had the edge over Norton on 3 issues. 1....

Adobe FrameMaker 7.0
Virtual Drive Deluxe 7.0
Norton SystemWorks 2.0
from Sunbelt Software.
Now this program really works! After a few days of use I get maybe one spammer a day and have to add them to my enemy list after bouncing the e-mail back to them. I used to get 15 - 25 spams a day! As time goes on I won't even get that many!
iHateSpam works from inside Outlook and IT WORKS!

Microsoft Plus! for Windows XP
As always, Microsoft has been releasing a Plus! extension for Windows. Microsoft Plus! for Windows XP does have new cool themes, screen savers and much more, but the reality is that for the price they are charging is better to save it for something else. It only comes with four themes (Aquarium,...
Quick View Plus 6.0
from Jasc Software.
As a JASC product, Quick View Plus is a bit disappointing. I am used to high quality products coming out of JASC, and almost always give them the highest recommendations. Although I would recommend Quick View Plus, not so much as other JASC products. Quick View Plus will open most any type of...
ZoneAlarm Pro 3
I have been using Norton Personal Firewall 2001 since late 2000, and am generally happy with it. But since ZoneAlarm has been getting lots and lots of positive press coverage, I thought I should give it a try, esp. after my Norton LiveUpdate subscription expired.
I downloaded the free version of...

Firekeys firewall + security 5.6
from Software Appliance Company.
I am still very green with all this computer lingo but have been getting the best support service on this product. Prompt emails and phone calls. I only wish my internet provider and my puter tech support were as prompt and helpful.
Super service. Thanks
Dragon NaturallySpeaking 5.0 Preferred Edition
I am preparing this review with version 6.0 of the product. In other words, I am dictating the review straight into the computer. I was skeptical about the product, even after reading excellent reviews. However, after working with the software for just a couple of hours I began to achieve excellent...

Norton Antivirus 8.0
True Image 6.0
Works in Windows XP. Allows creation of image on network drive. Works in older Windows as well. Software setup issues typical for Windows software. It works for me
Adobe Acrobat 5.0 Upgrade
Acrobat is an indispensible but overpriced utility. With the ubiquity of the PDF format, all applications really need to start having "Save as PDF" as a built-in function. Until then, we need Acrobat to save files in a shareable format. I foolishly believed the packaging that states this is an...
Documents to Go Premium 5
Antes de conocer este producto mi deseo era comprar una Computadora Portatil, el unico incoveniente era el precio y tamaņo, ya que la necesitaba para llevar algunos apuntes importantes de la clase y para tener los e-mails, ademas de una agenda y directorio telefonico. Lo unico que necesitaba...

Virtual PC 5 for Mac with Windows 98
I recently migrated to a fully loaded PowerBook w/maximum memory and the biggest disk available. The few Windows applications I needed to run could (I thought) be handled by the Virtual PC for Mac software. I've been in the technology business for 30+ years and know my way around both hardware and...
