I really like to keep software on my computer up to date. You never know when there are new features available, bugs fixed, or security vulnerabilities plugged unless you go out and look for them (and keep up to date with your Windows Updates.) About a month or so ago I noticed that CNET had a new tool that I thought I’d try on my computers called TechTracker. You can install it on up to three machines for free and it will just sit in your tray monitoring for updates. I got a popup this morning letting me know there is a new version of Adobe Reader available and I was taken to this screen where I could download the new update from Adobe’s website. Very handy!
