Your face is pasty, your eyes glazed, your thumbs sore and your butt soft from sitting inert in front of your console for hours on end. It's time to play a new game. Yourself Fitness is a diet and fitness program with a predictably creepy yet kinda cute cybergal "virtual personal trainer" who prescribes an exercise program and calls you a naughty boy if you skip a day. Yourself Fitness is available for the Xbox, PS2 or PC.
Never thought you'd see the day when a Windows VB script would do more good than harm, hmmm? Meet Janitor.vbs, a script that sweeps up X day-old garbage from a temporary holding pen for downloaded files you set up in Windows. Recover much-needed disk space and make sure your pirated movies expire after a week: set up Janitor.vbs to sweep up after you every night.
You're an RSS freak. Thousands of unread items mock you from your desktop newsreader every day. But you just want to see new posts on that blog by the girl you're stalking when you're on the go. Filter out the less important feeds and view only the good stuff on your mobile phone with Bloglines.
Photo-sharing app Flickr launched photo printing this week. To hook you on the Flickr crack even more, they're giving away 10 free 4x6 prints. This way Mom can get a hit without having to understand what "tag" or "Ajax" means.
Make video files, back up songs to your computer, create e-books or install Linux - all on your iPod. All that and a bag of chips over at the best iPod freeware list.
