By: Array

Our Download of the Day today is Miro 4.0.3.

 

Miro is a free HD video player. It can play almost any video file and offers over 6,000 free internet TV shows and video podcasts.

 

Miro has a simple, gorgeous interface designed for fullscreen HD video. Since Miro downloads most videos, you can take your shows with you, even on an airplane. Quite simply, Miro is a better way to watch all the video you care about.

 

Unlike your browser, Miro's built for HD. The built-in Miro Guide connects you to thousands of free High Definition video shows. Miro downloads video fast and stores it on your local computer for a level of quality that is often impossible on streaming video websites (even the ones that call themselves 'HD').

 

Can't open a video? Now you can, with Miro. Miro can play virtually any type of video file - Quicktime, WMV, MPEG, AVI, XVID, and more.

 

When it comes to video podcasts, Miro goes far beyond iTunes by letting you subscribe to BitTorrent RSS feeds, with one of the fastest torrent downloaders in the world. Miro makes BitTorrent RSS dead simple-- when a new episode is available, it will download automatically and be ready to watch.

Apple release Lion Recovery Disk Assistant

By: Array

Because Lion doesn't come on a pressed CD and is downloaded through the Apple App Store, it's a bit harder to swallow a catastrophic failure of your HDD considering you have no disk to put in and re-install. This is where Apple's Lion Recovery Disk Assistant comes in handy. It'll duplicate the OS's recovery partition onto an external drive of your choice. With that recovery disk created, you can then boot directly into an installer which will re-download the latest OS.

 

TweakTown image news/2/0/20425_12_apple_release_lion_recovery_disk_assistant.jpg

 

Of course, you'll require a disk larger than 1GB, a machine running Lion and the 1MB assistant which you can grab here.

Download of the Day: AxCrypt 1.7.2610.0

By: Array

Our Download of the Day today is AxCrypt 1.7.2610.0.

 

AxCrypt is used to share and work with stored documents, and e-mail attachments, in a secure manner.

 

If your documents reside on a document sharing service, intranet or file server AxCrypt is especially well suited and will usually seamlessly integrate, and make sharing and storing sensitive data as easy as not protecting it.

 

AxCrypt is great for protecting your documents such as private letters, correspondence, job information, medical information, financial details stored on a local hard disk or network server.

 

Just right-click any document file and encrypt it with AxCrypt. Viewing and opening for update is just as convenient as before encryption due to AxCrypt's automatic decryption/open/re-encryption function.

 

If you use a Key-File on a diskette or USB thumb drive, your files will be encrypted to the highest level of protection as long the Key-File is kept secret.

 

To encrypt a file, right-click it in Windows Explorer, select 'AxCrypt > Encrypt' and enter a pass phrase plus the path to an optional strong key file.

 

To edit or view an encrypted file - just double-click it.
