As I've mentioned before, as a software developer I'm always happy to pay for good software, but that doesn't mean I don't appreciate finding good free tools.

My Dell Laptop didn't come with any 3rd party CD burning software and I wanted to burn an ISO image ... a quick google search brought me to

I downloaded the app, checked it for viruses and started it up. It was simple, didn't install unnecessary files to my computer, and successfully burned my Slax CD image.

5 stars for doing exactly what I needed and nothing more. If you're looking for a free application to burn ISO files - Free ISO burner is perfect.

Panoramic Software releases Video Poker for Windows Mobile

I'm a little slow on this as it was released last week but Panoramic Software Inc has released Video Poker for Windows Mobile 5.0 and new touch screen devices.

Why is this interesting? Besides being a visually impressive application with excellent sound effects, Panoramic Video Poker is more than just game. It includes six Video Poker variants, multi-hand play, and casino accurate payout tables which makes it an ideal tool for testing out Video Poker play strategies. It also includes highly accurate statistics tracking for each game mode allowing for deeper analysis of your playing style. Its also a lot fun.

You can get it here:

or find it on the Microsoft Windows Mobile Marketplace
