    Another good list. Though I have more better post than listed one however this one satisfy me most because I am also an Internet addict.

      I enjoyed that article because “I am addicted as well…”. The social sites, as you have pointed out is consuming people’s time to the point that in a sense they are making us “unsociable”… Keep up your great work…

    Thanks for link to Appnews introduction. 🙂 Quite a chunk of my time went into that project and I hope it does well.

    • whatsonmypc says:


      I can tell you put a great deal of time into “AppNews”… Really, I think “AppNews” will be a hit… I know it will be with me… I will also plug “AppNews” into my blogroll to help draw some attention!


      • Rarst says:

        Thanks. 🙂 It is fairly well received so far and got over 300 subscribers (RSS and Twitter combined) in two days.

        By the way if you want to provide software updates to your readers you can embed Appnews as RSS in sidebar – links on items are directly to software.

        PS I am in “shameless promotion” mode 🙂

    • whatsonmypc says: has been added to my blogroll (Launch Pad) at the right side of the blog.

  3. whatsonmypc says:


    Shame on you (LOL)… I will do that (RSS in sidebar).

    Great job…


  4. whatsonmypc says:


    Very cool! I just added the “AppNews” RSS feed to the sidebar… Great addition to my blog.


    • Rarst says:

      Item content looks bit messy that way, I think displaying titles/links (as I do at my blog) is enough. 🙂

      Thank you very much! I hope it will be as useful to your readers as it is to mine.

  5. whatsonmypc says:


    Thanks for your input… I did as you suggested. I am also writing a small review to bring “” to my reader’s attention.

    Good work. I visit over 200 site daily to satisfy me and provide my reader a good article on the base of my surfing. I know there are several good alternatives of AppNews. However you must think though there is but people still creating free file hosting that why we able to get So keep up your good work. When I start all criticize me for my bad English but, yet with that bad English I archive 2400+ unique visitor/day in just 5 month. So good idea always needs hard work to improve its quality and a good promotion will make it complete.

    Thank you

    • Rarst says:

      Thank you. 🙂 I know that there are plenty of ways to get software updates online.

      Yet there are none with backing of three excellent (still shameless promotion mode) blogs and created exactly for their readership (and people with similar interests).

      PS your blog is telling me I am banned. Get some sense in your antispam setup and I am sure you will add even more to that impressive daily visitor count. 🙂

    Are you using dynamic IP? I ban some ip due to spamming on my forum. There are some IP from where I get over 5000 thread within 25-30 days. They are really my headaches. I don’t know why people do this. They always post some medicine related post. Anyway if you are a static IP user then mail me your IP on piyadasworld[a]

    Thank you
