I’ve been a Livescribe Pen fan for a couple of years now and use one myself all the time. I’ve recommended them to friends and acquaintances as they make note taking extremely simple and effective.

A quick note to let you know that I’ve received a new Livescribe Echo Pen for evaluation from them. I’ll let you know about the new features, and we’ll probably have them on the radio show.  I’m really looking forward to this one.

From this week’s review and comment on the news.  Here’s some free software that can make a big difference on the security for your computer:

  • SlimComputer – to turn off the unneeded programs, toolbars and promotions that come pre-installed on a new PC
  • SlimClearner –  is the world’s first software that lets you clean and optimize Windows systems using a crowd-sourced approach. SlimCleaner uses aggregated-cloud feedback to recommend optimal settings for programs, start-ups and services.
  • SlimDrivers – uses crowd-sourcing to spider and aggregate millions of devices to keep the device drivers up-to-date. Using a cloud-based system, SlimDrivers not only detects when a driver needs updating, but also identifies the proper executable for your system and initiates the driver install automatically.

  • Checks and identifies security issues in your browser.  Very nice software.  It detected some plugins on my machine that were out-of-rev.

  • Protects your inbox from spam, phishing and viruses.
  • Filtering for IMAP, POP, Exchange and Web mail accounts
