    While most suites pile on as many features as they can, Symantec is going back to basics: anti-spam, parental controls, pop-up blocking and privacy protection are all available only in an add-on pack

    Grass Valley Edius Pro 4.5 review

    10  

    The reputation of Grass Valley (formerly Canopus) for rock-solid, well-designed video editing tools is second to none. But it's a reputation that has been earned more through the company's hardware development than its software.

    Taking a step up from the normal world of taking photos, viewing and storing them on your computer and printing them out, professional photography demands a more 'workflow' oriented ethic.

    Windows Vista users may already know that it's possible to shrink and extend partitions without losing any data using the Disk Management Console. As such, it's possible to partition your hard drive without spending a penny. So why would you want to shell out for a commercial product like this?

    Canopus's ProCoder has been unchallenged as a media encoder for a good few years. Despite competition from Compressor on the Mac platform and Sorenson Squeeze, ProCoder managed to do just about everything right and deliver phenomenal results to boot.

    For many musicians who use computers, the preferred tool of their trade is a sequencing and DSP application such as Apple's Logic Pro. For those who prefer a printed score, there are score-writing applications such as Sibelius and Finale

    The digital media landscape hasn't exactly plateaued in the past few years, as was once predicted. If anything, the ever-expanding proliferation of portable devices and media formats has made it rockier than ever before

    Microsoft Windows Movie Maker HD review

    8  

    Windows Movie Maker first saw light of day in 2000 when it was introduced along with Windows Me. Both the mother OS and the application itself were not well received, the former blighted by technical glitches and the latter by a woeful lack of features

    Ambrosia Software Snapz Pro X 2.1.2 review

    7  

    Yeah, yeah, we know: Mac OS X already provides screen-grab keystrokes and a standalone capture app (the simplistic Grab). But Snapz Pro X bills itself as the crème de la crème of such tools, and is aimed at professionals who've outgrown Apple's built-in freebies.

    Compared to the recent mass-adoption of photo editing programs, spurred on by the digital camera revolution, vector-based drawing has become something of a lost art.

    Been using Macs for a while? Then you’re likely to have a spare machine or two kicking around. Due to the durability of most Macs, chances are they’ll be in working order, too; just not powerful enough to meet the demands of modern apps. With ScreenRecycler, old Macs with a screen can once again prove useful.

    Creaceed Hydra review

    5  

    Answer the following question: a hydra is (a) a Greek mythical monster with many heads, (b) an album by Toto, or (c) a clever piece of software for digital photographers? The answer, of course, is (c)... It's not as exciting as a Greek monster but it is infinitely more interesting than an album by Toto.

    F-Secure Internet Security 2008 review

    F-Secure does well to integrate its various elements into a single application, although a glance at the Task Manager revealed 14 separate processes using around 40MB of memory when idle, and installation requires a number of restarts.

    atebits Scribbles 1.1 review

    Although Photoshop is largely used by professionals, its influence has crept in elsewhere, and even consumer graphics applications often have interfaces based on that of Adobe's giant. Scribbles, in common with the likes of Acorn and Apple's iPhoto, offers a truly unique, innovative approach, this time for sketching and drawing.

    There are a couple of ways you can use your mobile phone to connect to the internet. It can be a tricky process, though, particularly when you're travelling overseas and need to hop between carriers and root out configuration codes for Mac OS X's Bluetooth software.
