Merely mentioning the existence of export regulations, without making them a condition of the license itself, is acceptable since it does not restrict users. If an export regulation is actually trivial for free software, then requiring it as a condition is not an actual problem; however, it is a potential problem, since a later change in export law could make the requirement nontrivial and thus render the software nonfree.


Does Prezi's unique, single-canvas animated-zooming make you pay more attention to the technology being used, rather than the content of a presentation? Maybe, but it's so damn cool. Put all the elements of your presentation in one space, set up the jumps you want from item to item, and Prezi animates them for you to share or embed. You can view but not edit in the mobile apps. A free account means your presentations, up to 500MB worth, are publicly shared by default. You have to pay $10 a month ($59.04 per year) to go private.

Evernote has one use: be your online repository for everything. Scan it, shoot it, type it, whatever, just put it in Evernote to find later. Most text, even in pictures, is OCRed (optical character recognition) so it's searchable later. Organize the notes into Notebooks, then access it anywhere. Despite some ups and downs in its business model, it remains our Editors' Choice for note-taking on multiple platforms—even if for free you can only use two devices (plus the Web interface).
Software that is free only in the sense that you don't need to pay to use it is hardly free at all. You may be forbidden to pass it on, and you are almost certainly prevented from improving it. Software licensed at no cost is usually a weapon in a marketing campaign to promote a related product or to drive a smaller competitor out of business. There is no guarantee that it will stay free.

Described as a "messaging app / former Emperor of Austria," you can tell from the Web page that Franz is gonna be fun—and useful. The sheer number of services it supports is huge: Slack, Facebook, WhatsApp, Skype, Google Hangouts, Twitter, Gmail, Outlook.com, and HipChat are just the start. You can add a service multiple times if you have multiple accounts.
Love this post! I agree that if you understand your audience's preference, you can customize the content for them. If you’re still sending mass emails without updating your strategies, you'd noticed that results are disappointing, despite your efforts. Thank you for sharing this post, these tips are game changers, I bet these would help a lot. A must read! https://bit.ly/2S3IdYQ
If you don't know or care what a media server is—you just want to stream your videos and music collection around the house—Plex is probably for you. Install it on all your devices, point it at some media, and the media is available on all of them—even remotely over the internet. Plex plans to implement a cloud-based server option on Dropbox, Google Drive, and OneDrive, so you can stream from the Web.
Many people write their own license. This is frowned upon as writing a license that does what you want involves subtle issues. Too often the wording used is either ambiguous or people create conditions that conflict with each other. Writing a license that would hold up in court is even harder. Luckily, there are a number of licenses already written that probably do what you want.

The Debian project is a strong supporter of free software. Since many different licenses are used on software, a set of guidelines, the Debian Free Software Guidelines (DFSG) were developed to come up with a reasonable definition of what constitutes free software. Only software that complies with the DFSG is allowed in the main distribution of Debian.
No matter if you work online or in the real world, networking can help your business succeed. It might not feel valuable to just keep making new contacts, but you never know how they might help you later down the road. Take the time to meet, greet and get to know people in-person and online. Make sure they understand what your business is all about. They might not become customers, but they can help connect you with free leads later on.
If you use a desktop email client like Outlook, Thunderbird, or even Windows Mail, you're probably not getting as much spam-fighting power—especially with POP3 email accounts. Stick SPAMfigher on the system—it works directly with Microsoft to make it as tough against spam as possible. (The Windows version is totally free for home use; the Mac version is only free for 10 days.)

Absolutely precise information Jawad. I am running a digital agency and most of my clients are based in United States or Canada and its not possible for me to stay in touch with them through traditional phone system as it's too costly. So i started using CallHippo. It is really an amazing tool which helped me get USA virtual phone number and now my clients can call me on that number and they just have to pay local call charges. However, after sometime i came across Salesmate CRM which is having a built in virtual phone system. So, i switched to Salesmate CRM from CallHippo by using number portability services and currently i am using a virtual phone system along with a USA virtual phone number and all other CRM features, which has helped my sales team immensely. I just have to use my CRM to get all the details of clients and manage all the communication channels from one platform itself. Thanks for sharing.
Rules about how to package a modified version are acceptable, if they don't substantively limit your freedom to release modified versions, or your freedom to make and use modified versions privately. Thus, it is acceptable for the license to require that you change the name of the modified version, remove a logo, or identify your modifications as yours. As long as these requirements are not so burdensome that they effectively hamper you from releasing your changes, they are acceptable; you're already making other changes to the program, so you won't have trouble making a few more.

It's not super popular in the US and not even our favorite messaging app, but you can't ignore the 800-pound messaging gorilla that is WhatsApp—since it was purchased by Facebook for almost $20 billion and it has over a billion users worldwide. It offers end-to-end encryption, has animated GIF support, group chat for up to 256 people, document sharing, voice and video calls, one-tap voice messages, and a Web-based interface you access by scanning a QR code with the app on your mobile device. It recently added macOS and Windows desktop versions.
