Want to improve Download? Here's your chance.

Being the product manager of Download.com can be a lonely job. There are millions of you Download users out there, downloading things, meeting up to talk about new software, throwing downloading parties (Im told they get pretty wild), and I'm stuck down here in the subterranean cinderblock chamber that is Download HQ. Sure, Im protected from the harmful radiation of the sun, but Im also isolated from the very people I run the site for.
So lets talk turkey:
A lot of the work we did in 2009 was to improve our infrastructure. This work makes it much easier for us to create new features for the site, but what should those features be? I have all kinds of ideas myself (personalization, video tours of products, better sorting and filtering of software) but Id rather hear what youd find valuable. Is there a feature on the site that could be better? Is there something we dont have but should? Lay it on me, and dont be shy. I can take it.
Pale but happy,
