PointerStick 2.41
Add a virtual pointer to your screen to help with presentations

PointerStick is a tiny tool which adds a virtual pointer to your screen, perfect for highlighting specific areas during a presentation.

Just run the program and (by default) a very large pointer appears. Move your mouse cursor as usual, and the pointer stick adjusts position to point at the same thing; anyone watching, even from a distance, will clearly get the message.

Of course a pointer stick of this size may get in the way sometimes, but fortunately this is easily fixed - just triple-clicking the mouse toggles it on and off.

If this still isn't quite good enough, though, clicking the program's system tray icon reveals a handy configuration console, where you can set the stick size, colour and style, transparency and more.

And perhaps most conveniently of all, PointerStick is portable, so this isn't something you have to install; just copy it to a folder sometimes and run it when necessary. (Don't worry about system resources, either. On our test system it typically consumed only around 3MB RAM when running on the background.)

New in version 2.41:
 - New optional feature, hide the default mouse pointer when showing the pointer stick!

Verdict:

A well-thought-out tool which can be a great help during formal presentations, or any time when you need to show something on your PC in detail to several people

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
