Pre-Paid or Monthly Plan: Virgin Mobile


I recently upgraded from my TracFone to a Virgin Mobile TNT. It's a nice little flip phone that only cost me $20. It came in blue and is coated in "soft touch" material. It's a lot nicer compaired to my TracFone. Here's the TNT.

For plans Virgin Mobile offers quite a few features. For instance if you sign up for their monthly plans you get things like unlimited mobile to mobile, texting and nights and weekends, which range from $25 - $80 per month.

Or you can opt for the pay-as-you-go plans which only require that you add some sort of minute pack every 3 months. You minute packs only last for 30 days and then expire unless you add more in that 30 day time period, in which case your minutes will rollover. Minute cards, or "Top-Up" cards as Virgin Mobile calls them range from $20 - $100, and the more you spend the better deal you get. That is to say you pay less per minute while you talk. Texting and web browsing does cost extra though, but not much, its $0.15 per text and $0.15 per day for web browsing.

The only real downside i found with this phone is that you can't connect it via USB to you computer and download custom ringtones. You are only allowed the tones that come with the phone and the ones that are purchased though Virgin's network.

Vuze Review


For those of you who don't know Vuze is a BitTorrent Client with a search engine and network built right into the GUI. The Vuze HD Network is marketplace of sorts where you can download the latest HD movie trailers, TV spots and other short videos. You can even publish your own material to the Vuze Network, though it has to be YOUR content otherwise it will be band and could get your account banded as a result. You dont have to have an account nesesarily, only to publish your content, you can still access the network without one.


The nice thing about Vuze is that it gives you all kinds of details about the things you are downloading. Vuze also has a totally customizable search enginge to work with too. It comes stock with Vuze search and you can add other search engines like The Pirate Bay and ISOHunt. The only things i find bad about Vuze is that you MUST manually shut it down and that its search engine reports Peers/Seeds wrong. Check it out here and download it for free.


RoboForm v6.9 Review


Roboform AI is an add on for Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. It stores all you passwords, logins, and personal information. When installed the program will take you though a tutorial process where it asks you to input your information. After this is done all you have to worry about is saying yes or no to storing new logins.


Roboform features a master password which wont let you auto-fill you information unless you input that password. It can a convenient or inconvenient feature depending on what your preferences are. It also includes a nice password generator which can be set to different strengths. So all-in-all Roboform is a program worth paying the money for. If you would like to go ahead and check out Roboform's home page.


Windows 7 Beta


Since Microsoft leaked the Pre-Beta and Beta of their new operating system, Windows 7, thousands of people have gotten ahold of it though torrents. Last week, Jan. 9, Microsoft officially released "The Beta" to the public. Only 2 million copies will be alowed to download so you should get yours quick.


So far as I can tell it's very stable, with only a few driver problems and some incompatabilty with programs, but that is to be expected since Windows 7 has only just been publicaly released. If you would like to see my list of compatible and incompatible software just visit this link, here at Warez-BB forums.

Also if you would like to get your own copy of the Windows 7 Beta, head here to Microsoft's site.


Apple's New Macbook Wheel

Apple had their Mac World Expo recently and revealed whats called the "Macbook Wheel". Its a revolutionary new laptop with no keyboard, all the user does is use the giant sized iPod style wheel. All commands, and I mean all commands are done via the wheel. I'm not a Mac fanboy, but this time Apple actually caught my attention. Bravo Apple.

This is, of course, fake. Check out The Onion video from Mac World.
