Im Aaron Smith, and Im the product manager for CNET Downloads. Today I get the pleasure of writing about something that the CNET team built -- a brand new software product called CNET TechTracker Plus. This is an upgrade from CNET TechTracker, our free application that keeps software up-to-date. Since we launched TechTracker about a year ago, it has become wildly popular. People recognize that keeping software up-to-date is important and that it improves security, fixes bugs, and gives you the latest features. With todays launch of TechTracker Plus, we are going beyond updates to give you a more complete way to manage software.
TechTracker Plus lets you perform installs, uninstalls, updates, and downloads all in one place. Weve also added some TechTracker Plus features to CNET Downloads web pagesthese features streamline installs and are visible only to TechTracker Plus customers. Our goal was to leverage the power of the CNET Downloads software catalog the largest catalog of its kind for more than just software updates and downloads.
If you arent yet using CNET TechTracker for your updates, weve recently given it a facelift so now would be a good time to check it out (http://www.cnet.com/techtracker-free). And, if youre ready to go beyond software updates, check out CNET TechTracker Plus (http://www.cnet.com/techtracker-plus)! Weve released it with a special introductory price of $19.99. We at CNET Downloads are really proud of what we launched today.
It has been a lot of hard work, but completely worth it. I am honored to be a part of this team. We all sincerely hope that CNET TechTracker Plus makes managing your software easier.
