Drive Snapshot – Simple Disk Imager in a 250kb download!

Although I prefer Acronis TrueImage as disk imager for our company, there is a nice little alternative available in SnapShot. It is disk imaging software that enables the user to back up (while working), restore and view backed up hard disk data, easily and safely. It runs on Windows NT/2000/XP/2003/PE/x64/Vista, offers a 30day trial (licenses for €39 and up).

The software looks a little ugly and outdated (see the screenshots), but seems to work fine and has just recently been updated.

Finally Google has listened: The new Google Enterprise: Google Custom Search Business Edition offering (starting at $100 per year for 5000 documents or less) can now be configured NOT to show any ads on the search results page. So now you can use this service and offer a site search on your site without the risk of your visitors being distracted from your site by Google Ads.

Quote: “The Business Edition turns off ads and allows you to access search results through an XML API. This means that you can create your own user interface for search results and have your search engine fit in seamlessly with the rest of your website. Custom Search Business Edition starts at $100 per year for searching less than 5,000 web pages. “
