Norton Internet Security for Mac 5
Keep your Mac protected from online threats with Norton Internet Security for Mac

Keeping safe online is about much more that simply ensuring that you manage to avoid virus infections. This is something that Symantec are only too aware of and it is a fact reflected in the beta version of Norton Internet Security 5 for Mac which bring the security package bang up to date complete with OS X Lion support.

Aside from the fact that Norton Internet Security is now Lion compatible - and it is only compatible with Lion - there is not much else new to look forward to here. There is a new interface that brings the app more in line with the look of the Windows version of the software, but the only new feature is Safe Web which provides warnings about potentially unsafe web sites - and automatically blocks them so they cannot cause any damage.

While there is little new to talk about in the security suite, Norton Internet Security still has a lot to offer. There is an effective and easily configured firewall that can be used to control the flow of traffic to and from your computer - this is pleasingly simple to set up.

The threat of identity theft s one that everyone should be concerned about, but to help allay some fears. Norton Internet Security includes phishing protection that blocks known phishing sites while web searches have been made safer due to the SafeWeb component of the Norton toolbar. This provides a warning should a dangerous sites be listed in search results

It should be noted that this is beta software; as such it is not fully finished and issues may arise. You should take care when using any beta software, ensuring that you backup all of your important data.

The beta build will give you a 14 days license. Simply click "renew" to extend this license after 14 days. The beta will expire October 31st 2011.

Verdict:

New features and improvements may be a little thin on the ground, but the Lion-friendly version of Norton Internet Security is worth a look, at least while the beta is free.

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.
