Picks and tips
Windows Weekly tip of the week: Windows users should drop Dropbox and use Windows Live Mesh with rare exceptions. Live Mesh is superior in some important ways and better integrated with Windows.
Also: Follow-up to last week. I mentioned that Firefox and Chrome lagged IE in businesses because of a lack of basic policy support. This is true of Firefox, but it turns out Chrome does have business-oriented deployment and management tools.
Windows 7 app pick: Ninite Updater. It's like Automatic Updates ... but for all of your apps. $9.99 a year.
Windows Phone 7 app pick: The Onion. The web's funniest e-zine goes mobile in fine form.
Mobile pick: Bing for iPad 1.1. Now with Lasso. "Simply lasso a word or phrase with your finger to do a search instead of copying and pasting into the search box. Search the way it was meant for the iPad."
Audible pick of the week: Robopocalypse by Daniel H. Wilson, narrated by Mike Chamberlain. Forget the zombie apocalypse. Once we have robots everywhere, the robot uprising is going to be the real problem!
