VirtualBox 4.3 Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack
Add new capabilities to VirtualBox with this extension pack

The VirtualBox Extension Pack adds useful new features to this popular virtualisation package.

(Assuming you don't have the latest version, anyway - click File > Preferences > Extensions to check. This one is version 4.0.4r70112.)

It includes a USB 2.0 (EHCI) controller, for instance, which should allow you to get better performance from your USB 2.0 devices. You'll probably need to enable the controller manually, though, as well as add filters for the USB devices you'd like to use (the VirtualBox manual has more details).

You also get VirtualBox Remote Desktop Protocol (VDRP) support. Essentially this allows you to run a virtual machine on one PC, while you view and control it from another: again, the manual has the full story.

And there's also support for remote booting a computer through emulation of the Intel PXE boot ROM with support for the E1000 network card.

None of this requires separate installation, as the extension pack has a "vbox-extpack" file extension that's handled by VirtualBox. So close down VirtualBox, download and double-click on the extension pack, and VirtualBox will launch and install it for you, upgrading any earlier version you might have.

Verdict:

The Extension Pack enhances VirtualBox with some useful capabilities.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
