Need to access your files from multiple PCs and your internet capable phone?
We have been using DropBox for a while now and find it incredibly useful. After setting up a free account (just supply an email address and password) you download the DropBox program and install it on all the PCs, laptops, etc., on which you would like to access the same files.
After accessing the DropBox account once (using the original email address and password) from that PC/Laptop, any files placed into the DropBox icon on one PC are then accessible from every other PC.
It's also a great way to just backup important data on mutiple PCs.

An Australian-developed browser plug-in promises to protect webmail content from computer hackers and block keyword-related advertising.
It works by encrypting email messages at the user's computer via a browser toolbar. Recipients need to download a free version of the software - called Armacrypt - to decrypt messages. Emails remain encrypted while in transit and in storage on mail servers.
It also prevents Google Adwords from filtering email text and serving related keyword advertisements on the webmail page. Instead, Adwords serves generic ads and encryption links.

WMD audio files is a format used by Microsoft’s media software and they are becoming more and more common. However, if you want to listen to those files using anything other than Microsoft software, they will need to be converted. Fortunately, this is very easy to do.
A WMD file is just Microsoft’s version of a zip archive and they already contain the sound files in an MP3 format.
