SubMaster is an awesome visual subtitle editor and translator

Most movie subtitles you find on Internet doesn’t need to be edited or time-synced. Simply load them into your favorite movie player and they work, just like that. This is true for only new and popular movies, however. Try finding subtitles for some obscure movie and you will be lucky to get one. Even if you do, it’s likely to have lots of errors in transcriptions/translations of dialogs and annoyingly out of sync.

Coranti – Multiple scanning engine (4-in-1) Antivirus

Years of research and testing by security companies and independent testers alike have taught us that a single anti-virus software is incapable of detecting all virus and malware out loose in the wild. All anti-virus scanners are blind to a small percentage of malware, but given the astronomical number of worms and viruses crawling through the interwebs, even that small percentage adds up to a couple of hundreds.

Facebook’s privacy policy is longer than the United States Constitution

At the turn of the new year (from December 2009, actually), Facebook brought dramatic changes to their privacy policy requiring users to opt out if they wish to keep information private. This means that most of that information is public by default and now some personal data is even shared with third-party Web sites.

YouTube now lets you keep public videos out of search results

Until now, there were only two options when you upload a video to YouTube – either make it public or make it private. Making it public meant anybody can view the video without logging into YouTube and the videos will appear on search results and recommended videos. Private videos is the other extreme – only specific YouTube users can view them. Today YouTube rolled out a third option, Unlisted, whose privacy option lies in between the two.
