Network Magic 4.1 is Here!
A few weeks ago I posted about the Preview version of Network Magic 4.1 being available. Well we finished-up putting 4.1 through some pretty rigorous testing and it is now available for FREE download at www.networkmagic.com. If you haven't tried it out, you don't know what you're missing!
There are two main new features, Network Reports and the Network Magic Advisor. As I wrote about before, Network Reports is a feature geared towards parents. It sends you a daily email report letting you know the sites your kids are visiting online, the amount of time they are spending online and the software applications they are using. What does all of this really tell you? Well, with this email, you know if your kids are chatting on IM and posting on MySpace rather than typing up their homework. At Pure, we don't want to do the parenting for you, which is why you can't use Network Reports to block certain sites, but we do want to help keep you informed as to what is going on in your home. And that is exactly what this feature does.
The second new major feature is the Network Magic Advisor. Think of this feature as having your own personal nerd living in your house. Not sure what a "NAS" device is? Clueless about how to upgrade your memory or RAM? You can use the Network Magic Advisor to learn more about not only these topics but many other things as well. It will give you helpful information about the devices you already own and you can use it to learn about new products you are thinking you might be interested in. For now, the products need to be slightly related to the home network; sorry you can't get movie reviews here, yet...
So go ahead, try out the new features and let us know what you think. We are constantly working to improve all of our features and would love to know what you think we can do to not only make Network Reports and Network Magic Advisor more valuable but how we can improve upon all of our features.
