CNET has created a fantastic new service called Tech Tracker that I wish I'd come up with. It tracks and keeps up to date all of the software on your computer! Mac or Windows!

Here's the link: cnet.com/techtracker One thing it got wrong, I just noticed, was that it thought I had Office 2007 installed. It must have found remnants of a trial installation that has long ago expired. Anyway, otherwise it looks very useful. UPDATE: It doesn't really keep anything up to date, it simply tells you what's out of date, leaving you to do the update yourself. At least they give you the link.


UPDATE: I have since (long ago) started using ninite.com
