But here’s the latest CPU magazine issue of November 2010: official download link (zipped pdf, 29 MB)

In this issue:

  • Through The Stereoscopic Looking-Glasses. A Wonderland Of 3D LCDs monitors.

  • The Art & Science Of Viral Video Advertising

Stop paying Rapidshare, get Mipony instead

Mipony v1.1.2Mipony is a very nice download manager, which can be real lifesaver then it comes to getting files out of free host sites such as Megaupload, Rapidshare, Hotfile, Easy-share, Gigasize, Mediafire, Depositefiles, Filefactory, Uploading, 4shared, and others — complete list can be found here. Captcha screens, of course, will appear as usual, but you won’t have to see any advertising associated with those sites. For big files (like images or movies) you can keep it running overnight, it will properly put all the file pieces in line to download one after another. The latest version is 1.1.2, download it here.

Here’s some screenshots of the program below (click to enlarge).

Consider this, even if you buy it, you basically have a trial of 360 days for a good sum of money.
