Deep study: The world's safest computing environment
"More and more smart individuals, government agencies and corporations are shifting towards Apple and BSD environments in 2004," according to DK Matai, Executive Chairman, mi2g. "For how long can the truth remain hidden that the great emperors of the software industry are wearing no clothes fit for the fluid environment in which computing takes place, where new threats manifest every hour of every day. There is an accelerating paradigm shift visible in 2004 and busy professionals have spotted the benefits of Apple and BSD because they don't have the time to cope with umpteen flavours of Linux or to wait for Microsoft's Longhorn when Windows XP has proved to be a stumbling block in some well chronicled instances."

NVU: Complete Web Authoring System
"Nvu (pronounced N-view, for a "new view") makes managing a web site a snap. Now anyone can create web pages and manage a website with no technical expertise or knowledge of HTML."

NeoOffice: OpenOffice for Mac OS X
"The goal of NeoOffice/J is to provide an entirely *free* and complete Mac OS X office suite based on the international project—only with the look-and-feel you'd expect from any Macintosh application. The project is a large open-source effort to create the ultimate office "suite" including a word processor, spreadsheet, presentation, drawing software, and much more. With, you can easily import, edit, and exchange files with users of other office programs, such as Microsoft™ Office™ or WordPerfect™."

"Blender is the first and only fully integrated 3D Graphics creation suite allowing modeling, animation, rendering, post-production, realtime interactive 3D and game creation and playback with cross-platform compatibility - all in one tidy, easily and free downloadable package!"


Shure: Best Audio for iPod
"As portable audio devices become increasingly common, people are often listening in noisy environments. A variety of headphone products on the market reduce the level of background noise heard by the listener, but with varying effectiveness. To learn more about how these products differ in performance, Shure commissioned a research study to compare the noise-reducing performance of its sound isolating earphones to competitive headphones that utilize Active Noise Cancellation (generically referred to as Active Noise Reduction in the study)." current earphone models
