TV sets are getting better and brighter, but they will never be able to completely substitute the computer; but the computer can and will substitute a TV set, and will do it free-of-cost. With the appropriate piece of software you can take advantage of your computer’s capabilities and perform a multitude of tasks traditionally not associated with a computer.

LiveStation is a free piece of software that allows you to watch live streaming TV stations and listen to online radio directly onto your Mac OS X or Windows desktop. Dockdrop, which is freeware as well, will allow Mac OS X users to seamlessly upload and share the files they choose.


Here is what you can expect to get from LiveStation:
- Over 3.500 channels and official partner channels that you can watch for free. You will need to register though, so that the software can “retrieve your player customizations”.
- Add a new channel or browse through the multitude of channels added by other users.
- Interactive chat, viewer ratings, and desktop alerts.

If you are a Mac OS X user and would like to share files with others, this task is made incredibly simple by Dockdrop. Here are the features you can expect to get:
- Just drag the file you want to share onto the Dockdrop icon.
- Choose between several upload methods: FTP, WebDav, SCP, and Flickr.
- Overlaid, transparent upload status bar that you can move about the screen. After the upload is complete, the auto-close feature will kick in.
- The URL of all uploaded files will be noted down in a clipboard which you can then conveniently paste into outgoing emails, IM conversations, web pages, and so on.
- Integrates with iPhoto, iTunes and Finder. Supports FTP, Flickr, WebDav and SCP protocols.
- Automatic updates.
