Lifehacker Pack Review

So you’ve got a new PC, or recently formatted and reinstalled your existing one and don’t like the hassle of having to set up all your favorite programs all over again? Well maybe I can help make this a little easier by suggesting the Lifehacker Pack 2010. Lifehacker puts together a new pack of free programs every year that installs all of its programs on your system at once. This means you activate one installer and only one to get all the software you want.

They have it arranged so you can pick and choose what you want out of their extensive list of programs. Once you’re done checking off the boxes you want, all you need to do is download the custom installer and sit back while your choices are put on the system.

Browsers, media players, security, Web essentials, and just about anything you need to get your fresh PC set up and ready are in the pack.

Lifehacker really goes all out to make this as simple as possible, and while I’d like to list downside after downside as I often do with freeware packs, this one really stands out as being a great choice for geeks and non-geeks alike with limited time and budget.

  • I like Google Books and Amazon Kindle versions, I don’t want to get tied up with Apple devices alone, would rather see in all systems.

  • iBooks let’s you do way more than two sizes of fonts.

  • Juvenile theorising… how does he think that the pyramids were built or modern roads set out?
    Has he even heard of land surveying and triangulation?

  • +1

  • The question proposed has merit, regardless of what the “poor grammar” and “didn’t answer the question” people say. Often times mathematics is viewed as something we discovered, but in some respects it only serves as an organized way of interpreting the manifestations of the universe. It is like an extremely well built bridge between objective and subjective reality. The question is: Did we build this bridge or just stumble upon it? Maybe it’s one of those naturally occurring land bridge-rock formation things. Whoa, my grammar was terrible in that last sentence. I digress. 🙂

  • I keep things clean solely for the fact I can find them faster. Especially when using multi OS. When holding onto large image files one couldn’t possibly remember exactly where that file was or the file name for that matter. Having a system to rate and tag files is critical in my field of work. The trick is to have just enough sub folders to contain your content into a relative space and location. The rest should be keywords to improve item look ups and rating to help sort out what is really important and what’s just there. This could be applied to any type of content.

    It maybe over the boarder for some but I have a naming convention for every type of file or content I encounter. So that way when I look up something I know what category it’s in then all I have to do is search for a suffix.

  • The act of organizing and maintaining my files keeps me in touch with the information I acquire. Although I depend heavily on my computer’s search function, I would quickly lose touch with what I have if it weren’t for my folder and subfolder system.

    Great topic!
