Christmas In New York
Count down to Christmas with this desktop gadget

Christmas In New York is a simple desktop gadget which displays an animated New York cityscape along with a countdown of the days until Christmas.

Somewhat surprisingly, there's no adware here, no installation required: just unzip the program, launch it, and the animation appears on your desktop. Snow gently falls, the sun rises and sets, the skyscrapers light up at night, it's all very nicely done.

Right-click the image and there are various configuration options. You can change the speed of the animation, turn the snowfall on and off, perhaps have it count down to New Year rather than Christmas Day.

The gadget is still a little intrusive, at least by default: it sets itself up to launch along with Windows, and always be on top of other applications. But fortunately these settings can be changed, too. If they annoy you, right-click, clear "Start with Windows", then select Options > Always on top.


A polished, appealing Christmas animation

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.
