Goodreads | recent updates TuneUp - Your Music Collection's New Best Friend Napster Later systems successfully followed and elaborated on Napster's file-copying methods, including Gnutella, Freenet, Bit Torrent and many others.

How to Use Your Smartphone to Remotely Send Downloads to Your Home Computer Re-posting here. Seems I posted in a "dead" topic. I didn't see anyone mention this, so maybe I'm the only one with this issue...

History Viewer: Check Browser & Windows’ Activity Of Your PC All major browsers have a history pane that allow you to view all the webpages that have been opened on your computer, sometimes even up to a couple of months back. This allows you to locate and access a URL even if you did not/could not bookmark it. Windows also saves history for visited locations, recently opened documents, searched items, Run history, typed paths etc. Select Create Report from the Report menu to generate an HTML report of the complete or partial history list. An annoyance that I came across during my testing, was the fact that if you went for any browser’s history and other relevant statistics while the browser was open, the application would automatically close the browser without any type of warning.
