Toolgether's Toolgether. If you create simple desktop apps -- calculators, forms, and other widgets -- Toolgether has a tool to Webify them, so you can convert them to Java apps that you can sell in a widget marketplace it is launching. Sound familiar? It should -- Adobe, Google, Microsoft, Apple, and many others are in the same game to differing extents, and it's hard to see the need for yet one more. Grade: F.
Unity Solutions' Lanxoma. IT staffers won't like this tracking tool that limits technicians' access to privileged systems to specific windows of time and then logs everything they do on Windows systems, even taking screencasts. (So you might want to become a Linux admin instead.) The premise is that since most data security threats are internal, IT staff is a company's biggest risk. There's truth to that, but it still doesn't feel good. Nonetheless, while logging is not a new idea, such comprehensive lockdown and tracking is an advance. If only it worked on Linux and other industrial-grade OSes where IT could do real harm. Grade: C.
