Freeware/Open Source for Windows Weekly Summary

by Todd Ogasawara

Here's my weekly summary of Freeware, Open Source, and free web services mentioned in my personal blog last week. The list is a bit shorter than usual because of my traveling last week.

Mac OS X Expose Clone for Windows

Google Picasa Photo Organizer 3.8.07 and Picasa Web Albums
Google recently released a new version of Picasa Photo Organizer 3.8.07 and Picasa Web Albums for Windows (as well as a Beta release for Linux). You can now store up to 1GB of photos in Picasa Web Albums.

TalkShoe (Beta): Web Voice Talk Show Service
I first learned of...

TalkShoe

...when Leo LaPorte and Amber MacArthur switched the format and name of their Inside the Net from a Podcast to a live net talk show called net@nite that is later released as a Podcast. TalkShoe (currently in Beta release like pretty much every other web based service) provides the ability to host similar net talk shows that lets multiple people call in to talk to you during your show.
