Orb Caster
Access your computer's media on your mobile with Orb Caster

The humble computer, be it a Mac or a PC, has transformed into a entertain medium in recent years. As well as being used for work and internet browsing, it is also used to house vast music collections, store endless video files and maintain gigantic photo libraries. No one likes to be tied down, but the traditional way of using a computer means that many people will only access their media on the machine it is stored on.

But by installing Orb Caster on your computer as well as OrbLive on your iOS or Android device, you can stream your media files not only around the home, but even around the world. The desktop software acts as a server as catalogues all of the media files you have on your hard drive. There are a number of standard locations that are included by default, but you can easily add your own folders if necessary.

The mobile app make it a breeze to browse through your media collection, access your photos, videos and music whenever your computer is switched on. Remote access can be achieved over a home network, or via the internet, so you can make use of the service when you are out and about.

If all of this is not enough, the Orb software can also be used to control your computer's TV car or web cam. This could be used in a number of ways. You may choose to use this option to access live TV on the move, or you could connect to your web cam when you are out and about to check that everything is OK at home. Forget syncing, just stream.

Verdict:

The mobile apps are a little on the expensive side, but Orb is a fantastic piece of software that will provide you with entertainment wherever you are.

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.
