Download Demon 3.0

Download Demon launches automatically when you start a download, displaying the name of the file you're downloading, the site from which it's coming, and the folder in which it's being saved. The program tells you how much of the file's been downloaded and the estimated time remaining until completion. It can be used at FTP and HTTP addresses, and it recognises 85 file formats.

The scheduling feature allows you to download files while you're away from your PC. The Download Demon can track multiple downloads simultaneously and, based on your preferences, can list all of them, the unfinished ones only, or only those still downloading. Files land in a default download folder, unless you specify another location. You're then given the option to install them immediately or to view them.

Perhaps the most useful feature is Download Demon's ability to pause and resume downloads - so you can make or receive a phone call, without having to start over. Just click the Resume button to pick up where you left off. Although Pause and Resume work only with servers that support the resume feature, we encountered no obstacles - most servers support it.

You can change the look of the Demon with skins, but the only way to eliminate the marching banner ads that run across the main interface is to hand over $US30.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

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.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

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