Technitium MAC Address Changer 6.0.5
Find out more about your network card's MAC address - and change it to something else

Technitium MAC Address Changer is a tool which provides useful information on your network adapters, and enables you to change their MAC addresses to something else.

Why bother? A utility like this can help to improve your privacy when accessing public networks on a laptop, for example (if your MAC address is always changing then you'll appear to be different systems). It can be useful for testing network security, and may have some troubleshooting applications, too.

At a minimum, you can use Technitium MAC Address Changer to find out more about a particular network adapter. Just choose it from the list and you'll see its name, hardware ID, current MAC address and who that belongs to (the card manufacturer, in other words), connection speed, and even a graph showing current network traffic.

And in a click or two you can now also change an adapter's IP address, gateway, DNS server and more.

If you want to change an adapter's MAC address, though, there's the option to create one randomly, enter a particular address of your own, or even choose one from the program's extensive list. The new address can be just for this session, or be made persistent (so it'll survive a reboot), and if you've finished testing then you're able to restore the original address with a click.

There are a few complications involved here which means this process won't always be successful. It worked for us, though, and there is an option you can apply if you have problems (click "Why" next to "Use '02' as first octet of MAC address), so if you need to engage in this kind of advanced network tweakery then Technitium MAC Address Changer is a good place to start.

Version 6.0.5:

- Fixes minor bugs including an error that occurs while updating OUI file into local database from IEEE.ORG.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.8

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 2.12.8 brings:

• 3D Touch: Support for 3D Touch on iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. You can now quickly Peek and Pop pictures, videos, links, contact cards, and locations you send and receive in chats. 
• The WhatsApp interface is now mirrored and optimized for right-to-left languages like Arabic (iOS 9+).
• Bug fixes
