this one is kind of related to my previous post. while I was using the Classpad application, from time to time I was mistakenly dragging the application window instead of a scrollbar lets say and the application doesn't natively support locking its position. So I found a software which checks the size and position of your applications and brings them back if changed for you automatically. It is called Zmover, it has a trial version, you might like to give it a go..

I stumbled my way to this forum and glad I did. So here is a contribution. I found this a while back and seemed interesting. This could be useful for using sensitive applications.

I like the concept of that application, however running virtual machines always seem safer to me.

True enough, I also like VMs but this is far less overhead on machines like ours that can ill afford to waste the resources.

But I do agree and usually use both.

here is a software which turns your GPS enabled windows mobile phone into a bluetooth GPS for any device (including our beloved UXs). Basically it is a GPS sharing application letting you share the integrated GPS of your device over bluetooth. It also has a windows version but since our UXs don't have integrated GPS it is kind of meaningless. What I use is the windows mobile version which lets me use my Samsung Omnia as a bluetooth GPS on UX which runs Garmin Mobile PC. Here is the link:

This one has been really handy for me - particularly when moving between my UX390 and macbook pro. An online file storage called Dropbox, which integrates nicely into both pc and mac. It has a good system of managing/monotoring file changes, and also has been useful for me professionally in sharing files between colleagues. You can nominate folders to share, and it all works very smoothly.

If you haven't already signed up for DropBox (or don't know what it is) I really recommend checking it out.

You can watch a demo here: https://www.getdropbox.com/screencast

Should you like the look of it, sign up with the following referral code and we both get extra storage for free :)

I think it has real potential to change the way we use and share data. No more USB keys...

Drop box is really interesting, I will test it.
What I also use is Teamviewer. One can use the program for presentations, data transfer and distant servicing. For the private use it is free and has only small restrictions: http://teamviewer.com

BumpTop Mac makes a very positive first impression, but won't suit everybody. If your Desktop is a shocking mess of files, and if you like storing them all there, you might find it a handy way of seeing through the clutter and making things tidy. It has some nice ideas, but needs some additional tweaks to really take off.
