get the current song from it and download the lyric and album art for you. 
Download free at http://autolyrix.com/index.htm .

02.  SYLPHEED is a simple email client with a lot of features.  It will run on 
Windows, Linux, BSD, and Mac OS X and is free at http://sylpheed.sraoss.jp/en/ .

03.  ACROBAT BUZZWORD is a new online word processor. It looks and behaves like 
your normal desktop word processor, but it operates inside a Web browser, so 
there's no installation required.  Because it's in Beta, it's free at 
http://www.adobe.com/acom/buzzword/ . You'll have to create an online account 
but that's free, too, and a short process.

04.  SRWAREIRON.  Described as "the browser of the future", this one should 
appeal to those who are impressed with Google's Chrome but are concerned with 
privacy issues.  Download free at 
http://www.srware.net/en/software_srware_iron.php .

If you're receiving the NNT Premium edition, you read in the latest issue about 
an application that cleans your system of all traces of unwanted security 
applications and then even deletes itself after the job is done.  We talked 
about other software that provides detailed information about your system; a 
free online spreadsheet service that rivals Microsoft Excel; another allows you 
to protect your images with a visible watermark; one program analyzes your 
computer for important driver information; a program password-protects any 
executable file from prying eyes; another lets you play chess online; still 
another provides a full-featured painting program; and, you can instruct 
Microsoft Word to do your own bidding in your own words.  The issue offers at 
least a half-dozen other useful programs, all free along with our usual 
features to keep your computer purring smoothly.  Our guest columnist tells 
what should be important to you when making that next computer purchasing 
decision.  If you are subscribed to NNT Premium, you already know what's in 
that issue; if not, just $12 will get you that issue and 23 more informative 
ones over the next year. Subscribe now, with a no-risk money-back guarantee, at
