Silver Key encrypts files and produces self-extracting encrypted files, which can be sent safely over the Internet. The good thing about this software is that no crypto software needs to be installed on the receiving side, so it’s real easy to use.

Silver Key is the silver bullet for secure file transfer. It is a single-click solution if you want it simple, and offers a rich set of features when you want more power”.

Is this really true? You’ll be the judge of that, you can try out Silver Key for 30 days before making any financial commitment.

eBay to buy StumbleUpon?

Wednesday, April 18th, 2007

su.gifHigh-flying startup StumbleUpon has been rumored to be in acquisition discussions since at least last November. Recently we’ve heard that talks have heated up again, with Google, AOL and eBay as potential suitors. A source with knowledge of the deal now says the company has signed a term sheet with eBay to be acquired. The price is somewhere between $40 – $45 million.

StumbleUpon lets users rate websites via a browser toolbar. At any time a user can click “Stumble!” and will be taken to a website highly rated by other StumbleUpon users who tend to vote in a similar way as the person “stumbling.” More often than not, it’s something almost serendipitously interesting to the reader. The company expanded into video referrals in late 2006. (more…)
