Since the merger of the Support Alert Newsletter and the Windows Secrets Newsletter on July 24, we’ve received a lot of great feedback from our readers.
To give you as much value as we can, we’ve put together today’s special “news update,” although Windows Secrets doesn’t normally publish a newsletter on the 5th Thursday of the month.
Take advantage of our reviews and library
We’re doing everything we can to give you easy access to the latest software reviews by writers for both Windows Secrets and Support Alert.
The image at right illustrates our new “software sidebar,” which is now available to you on most pages of WindowsSecrets.com. As soon as possible, we plan to highlight the very newest reviews — just the past four weeks, for example — to make them easy for you to find. (The links in this example image aren’t clickable; instead, clicking the image leads to a WindowsSecrets.com reviews page, where a working sidebar resides.)
The reader response to our new review format has been incredibly positive. The following e-mail from Fernando Assis, a paying subscriber to the old Support Alert Newsletter, is typical of the messages we’ve received:
- “The new way you present links for the best freeware in this new site is just superb. I’ve never seen it any easier in any other place. Congratulations! And thanks a lot.”
