MaskMe 1.6.130
Automatically create disposable email addresses as required with this handy Chrome extension

MaskMe is a Chrome extension which helps you to maintain your security when you register with websites.

When you're setting up an account somewhere, for instance, the site will probably ask for your email address - but giving it out could result in a torrent of spam. So when you get to that point in the form, MaskMe will pop up and ask if you want to "mask" this address. Choose that option and it'll generate and enter something cryptic in the form, like "3d45e64c@opayq.com", which means the site will never see your real details.

Emails sent to this new address will be forwarded to your regular account, of course, so you'll still get real messages from the site. But if you start getting spam from them, you can block individual senders with a click. Or, if there are just too many, you can turn off the forwarding of messages from that address altogether.

Sounds great to us, but MaskMe has another useful feature. When you're asked to create a logon for any site, it will pop up again and offer to generate a strong password for you. And if you accept, it'll create something like "AV.93vxZw4", enter it in the form now, then automatically complete the login whenever you return to the site in the future.

MaskMe is an excellent service: simple, effective and easy to use. If you need even more, though, a MaskMe Premium service can provide a disposable phone number, as well as syncing your account with other browsers and the MaskMe iPhone app. This costs $5 a month, and you can find out more from within MaskMe (click Home > Masked Phones).

Verdict:

MaskMe is an excellent way to cut spam and help maintain your online security

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.
