AfterDawn: Tech news

Over 40 million software downloads

Written by Petteri Pyyny (Google+) @ 04 Aug 2005 23:46 User comments (29)

Over 40 million software downloads We just noticed this morning that our software download counters had hit the 40 million milestone last night, marking yet another small milestone on our long, long journey. Comparing the latest milestone of 40M to the previous one I wrote about -- the 25M download milestone back in last September -- shows that our software section has become more and more popular. Currently we serve over 1.6M software downloads each month (that's almost 40 downloads every single minute).
Anyway, this is once again one of those moments that I'd like to thank all of our users, people who recommend our site to their friends, people who link to our site, people who contribute to our forums, software reviews, etc. You're the guys who truly make our site what it is -- a place with wealth of information and a place that is nice to visit again and again :-)

New user, I just bought a v220 usb data cable with cd that has the drivers. I can't get my computer to communicate with my pic phone. I would like to down load my pic off my phone. How do I do this? I am getting fed up with the whole thing? do I need additional softway? MODEL NUM. MOT C350 (DATA CABLE). Hope someone can help me out. Thanks for you time and efforts.

Ahmen!! Afterdawn is the web site. Like many others I've learned all I know about copying. What is more, all the software I need to carry out many tasks, I acquired from Afterdawn. And reading the Forum and gotten me out of several jams. Never leave us AFTERDAWN. Many thanks

I am toasting the site as I write this post. Fantastic job with the site and congrats on the unbelievable number of downloads. I wonder if 40 million downloads is any kind of record for the Net? A big thanks to your site for all the excellent information available to a "newbie like me" and to all of the other members for their help.

CONGRATULATIONS ! You guys are the business and you should know how much you are appreciated. I am 52 and have only had a PC for 5 years and your guides and software have been my beacon.I have learnt so much and have now over taken friends who were instructing me at the begining.I do every thing now with music, photography, video, DVD etc on the PC ( yeah ok, still got all the vinyl and a jukebox) also shopping on ebay which drives the wife insane when the postie arrives withyet another package ! Heres a toast to 50 million just round the corner. Thanks big time.
