I'm trying not to feature every blog that comes out of the Weblogs, Inc.
megafactory, but they just keep throwing out winners so I feel bad not mentioning them. Download Squad isn't really new ground, it's kinda like FileForum
(with more commentary) or an extended software section of Lifehacker
. But lots of good software knowledge is a good thing. In a world with little apps and utilities that do everything under the sun sometimes you need someone to break down the good and the bad and tell you what does what. Think how much of this stuff you never would have imagined you'd NEED when you got your first computer and were happy to play Frogger and put your tax stuff in Lotus.
Of course you can't live on the bleeding edge without putting up with a lot of crap. So be warned that you're gonna see some not ready for primetime stuff when you're downloading software from an up-to-the-minute software blog.
