Internet anonymiser: Steganos Anonym Pro 6.0

Anonym makes your online identity hard to determine by using an array of public proxy servers around the world to route your HTTP data to your PC — anyone ‘watching’ will see the IP address of the proxy server, not yours. Its unique selling point is that it switches between these proxy servers very rapidly, making tracking you down all but impossible. Anonym can control those other telltales: cookies, browser history, temporary Internet files and passwords. A secure file deleter is also included.

The main dialogue window is dominated by a map of the world and a rapidly moving ‘rifle sight’ pinpointing where it has spoofed your location details. Below this is the latitude and longitude and the fake IP address. I’m not sure how accurate or meaningful this is because it continues to run even when you yank out the Internet connection, so it’s just eye-candy, I suppose.

Unfortunately, browsing performance takes a drastic hit even when you’ve got broadband. Also, I wonder just who needs this degree of anonymity?

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
