ADT Data Consulting
is holding an online contest in regards to their new Speed Download product.
“We’ve gotten a very warm and positive reception from the Macintosh community ever since we released version 1.5 of Speed Download,” Tony Yazbeck of ADT told MacCentral. “To the Mac community, I say ‘Thank you very much, and we’re not stopping here; expect A LOT more features and more speed and refinements in all upcoming releases.'”
Speed Download is designed for speeding up download times when you’re online. Speed Download offers multithreading so you can go online and download as many files as you want, simultaneously, Yazbeck said. It works with Internet Explorer, Netscape and Opera Web browsers (with more browser support coming soon).
The contest is for designing the next icon/logo for Speed Download. ADT has received several voluntary logo submissions from users. So they decided to hold a contest, Yazbeck said.
“The chosen logo/graphic will receive a free registered copy of Speed Download,” he said. “The criteria is also simple: the logo has to portray speed, be eye-catching and has to look good both in Mac OS Classic and Mac OS X. The Macintosh community is the elite of graphic design so I’m sure this is going to be a very exciting. All of us at ABT Data Consulting are looking forward to it.”
Speed Download, a US$20 application, sports a download queue that supports schedules. It’s Carbonized so it runs under Mac OS X. It also has multi-processor optimizations when running Mac OS 9 or higher.
For more info or to download Speed Download 1.5 (a 962 k file) go to the
product Web site. System requirements are Mac OS 8.6 or later (with the proper CarbonLib extensions) or Mac OS X 10.0.0 or later.
