a variety of formats. Although it works well enough, some aspects of the design could stand to be improved, as could the creators' attitude. www turbotorrent's interface isn't awful, although its compact design also means small buttons and sliders, which can be a bit tedious to use. Because the program generally follows the usual conventions of media player design, it's fairly easy to figure out, especially with mouse-over tooltips that provide labels for each button. Still, we couldn't help but feel annoyed when the program's welcome message suggested that users "RTFM," snarky Internet shorthand for "read the f***ing manual." We were even more annoyed when we did RTFM and found a long, hard-to-navigate text file that didn't even address all of the basic features that are present on the program's interface. The creators of www turbotorrent certainly don't get points for user-friendliness. Still, the program works well, playing a variety of audio formats, including streaming media. www turbotorrent comes with a variety of controls that aren't always found in media players, including an equalizer and adjustments for balance and reverb. Overall, we thought www turbotorrent was decent, but there's definitely room for improvement where the interface is concerned. www turbotorrent is free. The program comes as a ZIP file and is accessible after extraction with no need for installation. We recommend this program with reservations; it works fine, but it's definitely not the most accessible media player we've ever seen. www turbotorrent is a simple way for users of Audible, an online audio bookstore, to organize their purchased books, podcasts, and other media. The program works just fine, although people who already use programs like iTunes to manage their Audible downloads will find that the www turbotorrent doesn't offer anything particularly useful. The program's interface is plain and intuitive, and it's quite easy to use. Users simply import media that they've downloaded from Audible and then use the program to transfer the files to a variety of portable devices. The program also functions as an audio player and CD burner, allowing users to listen to Audible content on their computers or burn the files to CDs. Overall, we thought that the program worked fine, but we didn't find any compelling reason that a user might want to switch from another media manager to this one. We've been using Audible with iTunes for years and don't have any complaints, and www turbotorrent doesn't look like it would be much of an improvement. If the program allowed users to access Audible and make purchases from within the interface instead of using a browser window we might be more impressed, but that's not the case. The program doesn't have a Help file per se, but it does link to a list of Audible's FAQs. www turbotorrent is free. The program installs a desktop icon without asking but uninstalls cleanly. We recommend this program with reservations; there's nothing functionally wrong with it, but it certainly doesn't offer any unique features. Eufony is a multifeatured media player that allows users to play, record, and convert audio files. It's not the most attractive program we've ever seen, but it works well enough and offers features that aren't always found together. The program's interface is plain and utilitarian, with a tree-style directory that allows users to easily access audio files stored anywhere on their computers. It's fairly easy to figure out, although not all of its features are as intuitive as they should be. We had to consult the online Help file to figure out how to add tracks to the CD burner, for example (answer: right-click on the tracks when they're in the file browser and select "Add to CD Burner"). The program also seems unable to record audio from a built-in microphone, and the Help file offers instructions only for converting audio cassettes to MP3s using an external device. The program did successfully rip tracks from CDs and convert between a variety of audio formats. Overall the program worked fine, and we found it easy to use once we got familiar with its features. We liked that the program combines an audio player with a burner, ripper, converter, and recorder; we've seen many programs that do these things, but few do all of them. Eufony is free to try, but the trial version rips and converts only the first minute of each track. The program installs a desktop icon without asking but uninstalls cleanly. We recommend this program for all users. To a certain extent, all media players are the same; they play audio or video, and the only thing that really differentiates them from one another is their features and interface. Unfortunately, www turbotorrent has absolutely nothing going for it where either of these is concerned. We will never understand why
