uTorrent somehow ended up showing a full screen ad that I was only able to disable following a lengthy Google search.
Now I sorted ads problems with uTorrent permanently by eventually switching to qBittorrent. I had been too lazy to switch to... Read full review

Reviewed Lotto Pro 8.88

Rubbish. Only 5 out of the 6 numbers it gave me were correct.
For the mathematically challenged, flipping a coin 10 times would statistically yield 5 heads and 5 tails, but having flipped the coin 9 times already and having had 9 heads doesn't... Read full review

Reviewed RasterVect 27.5

Not impressed: many simple geometrical entities were converted to daisy chains of countless small chunks of lines.
Inkscape did a much better job for me, and costs $80 less (i.e. it's free).
Bottom line: if you're going to compete with free... Read full review

Reviewed Tennis Elbow 2006 for Windows 1.0c

The "this little tennis game rocks" reviewer below only ever wrote this glowing review. Highly suspicious, particularly since the game actually sucks: you can get much better value for your $25. Read full review

Reviewed Apple iTunes for Windows

I once gave away my wife iPod Shuffle and bought her another MP3 player just for the sake of not needing this anymore and being able to eradicate it from my computers. IIRC I listed my gripes in another review some time ago. Read full review

Reviewed Recuva 1.53.2083

Just tried it, v1.42. Copied an executable on a drive, deleted it (shift+delete), run Recuva, select *.exe as filter, scan took 10 seconds, found the file I just deleted, highlights it with a green icon (it found really old files as well, but... Read full review

Reviewed Mozilla Firefox for Windows 108.0

I'm not normally the kind to complain about something as intangible as version number, but this is becoming ridiculous.
I just upgraded to 7. Now, there's 8 beta available, fair enough. 9 alpha as well? Oh, hum, okay, I'll just ignore it as... Read full review

Reviewed Mozilla Firefox Portable Edition 84.0.2

No major complaints from me except that the escalating version numbers have been deprecating perfectly fine addons real quick, argh. I used to crank up "maxversion" a notch in "install.rdf", but still annoying, so I took a chance and set them to... Read full review

Reviewed Mozilla Thunderbird Portable Edition 78.6.0

I've been using this for years now, and it's been pulling from my yahoo/gmail/hotmail without an hitch. So 5 from me. Read full review

Reviewed HyperSnap 8.16.17

"this software can capture text. I can then use Nuance Omni Page Pro's OCR to translate it"

I don't get it:why do you need to use OCR? HyperSnap-DX already captures text in usable form. This feature alone makes me rate it a 5, and it... Read full review
