Vector Clock Designer
Drag and drop elements to quickly start building your own clock.

The clock that sits in the Windows Taskbar is functional, but not exactly inspiring. And the desktop gadgets that ship with Vista and Windows 7 aren’t much better, either. While desktop clocks are commonplace, finding the right one to match your desktop or suit your personal demands can be tricky.

Vector Clock Designer figures the best way for you to get the perfect desktop clock is to design your own. It’s an incredibly powerful tool that developers and designers could spend hours tweaking and fiddling with, but thankfully for the rest of us you can eschew all those precise controls in favour of quickly dragging and dropping the elements you want, then quickly colouring them before letting the program take your beautiful design and transform it into a fully working desktop app.

Start with a blank canvas, switch to the Library tab and pick backgrounds, hands, glass effect and finally controls from a large array of templates. Once done, explore the other tabs to change colour or make more extensive changes.

If you’re short on inspiration, you’ll find a number of pre-built clocks included which you can then fine-tune to your own needs, or visit the program's website to download dozens more.

You can preview your clock before generating the final code, and once complete, save your clock before letting the program transform it into a floating desktop clock, ready to tell you the time whenever you need it.
 

Verdict:

A clever design tool, as simple or as complex as you need it to be. If you can’t find a desktop clock to suit, create your own instead.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
