Cheap 4x6 postcard flyers and other printing
Star Office $70 from sun.com or download free from http://google.com/pack just uncheck all other programs (cause they're crap) except Star Office and it will downloand and install in one step. Google has special agreement with Sun to give this away for free.
Many good, free programs at http://portableapps.com/ - for your computer or they will download to a USB drive and you can take them with you and use on any computer. Check out GIMP which is a Photoshop-type program and Inkscape which is an Illustrator-type program. Also InfraRecorder for CD burning. And VNC Media Player which plays alomst any video file format.
Free PDF creating program - Ive used it for a long time and it works well but lately something is causing it to crash. Try it and see if it works for you http://downloads.sourceforge.net/pdfcreator/PDFCreator-0_9_3_GPLGhostscript.exe?modtime=1156491273&big_mirror=0
Also FoxIt PDF Viewer (just Google it) is way better and faster than having the bloated Adobe Acrobat Reader.
Finally AVG Anti-virus rocks! Download here.

Never call regular 411 again. This is free and it's amazing! Plus, they automatically connect you, eliminating the need to dial the call.

I read alot of news articles on the Web. One of the more annoying parts of reading long articles online are sites that split an article into 2, 3, or more pages. This is partly so they can feed you more ads and generate more page views. Web experts also claim people don't want to scroll down more than 2 or 3 screen's worth of information. (I don't really believe that, but whatever.)
Well here's a tip I've learned to get the entire article on screen at once. A bonus is that the article is displayed with fewer or no ads at all!
Usually articles have an Email This Story link. Look for that link, in the same area is a Print Article link.
The Print Article link usually opens the entire article in a new window, with a layout where the text flows easily and no ads!

I really enjoy reading John C. Dvorak's opinion columns in PC Magazine. I watch Cranky Geeks on my Tivo via download. I like his take on the latest tech news so I am getting both the news itself as well as the REAL scoop about what's going on behind the scenes.
