FileZilla to Cyberduck

I’ve been a FileZilla user for a few years. I switched over to FileZilla away from Fugu and Cyberduck for reasons I can’t recall. FileZilla has served it’s purpose, despite it’s bi-monthly updates (that get quite annoying.) It’s a simple app, you can connect via FTP, FTP over SSH, and then a few SSL options. I mainly use it for SFTP (FTP over SSH) because it’s more secure than FTP. If you know anything about Internet security, you’ll know FTP isn’t exactly the safest thing in the world.

One Reason I Love FiOS

There’s one major reason I love Verizon FiOS. It’s fast. Really fast. I can get speeds up to 2.8mb/s and that’s simply blazing fast. The TV service we also get is really good.

Can’t Like on iTunes Ping

I’ve been trying out Apple’s iTunes Ping social network, and for the most’s alright. Nothing special beyond the ability to follow your favorite artists and stay up to date with what they’re doing. It’s generally a bad experience because of how sluggish iTunes is (both Mac and Windows). That said, I don’t use it very much. If it were on a website instead, I would probably use it more often. But here’s a bummer. You can’t like tracks that aren’t listed in the iTunes store. This can both good…and bad. iTunes has a lot of songs for sale, but …
