FreeMyPDF Liberates Your PDF File from Printing and Other Restrictions [PDFs]

You’ve got a PDF file on your hands that you really need to print, copy, or otherwise edit but it’s locked down like Fort Knox. You’re out of luck, unless you use a service like FreeMyPDF.

A few years ago, I would have killed for a simple service like FreeMyPDF. Countless times people within my company would send me PDF files that had all sorts of unnecessary protections which frequently made it impossible for me to work with them the way they requested: “Hey can you print that off and bring it to the meeting?” “You locked it down with a password. I can’t print it.” “Oh really? Huh. I dunno what the password is.”

FreeMyPDF helps you deal with situations like that. Upload the file to FreeMyPDF and passwords and restrictions are stripped from the file before it is returned to you. It should be noted however that the process only works for files you are able to view—files which you need a password to even view can't be unprotected by FreeMyPDF.

Have a tool for solving your PDF-related headaches? Let’s hear about it in the comments.

Clicker App Gives Boxee a Program Guide [Streaming Video]

We’ve labeled Clicker.com as a one-stop shop for streaming television, and it makes great sense as a dedicated app in the media center Boxee. From one interface, you can find nearly everything you can stream to your TV-connected setup.

Clicker’s app doesn’t include everything on the Clicker.com web site—just the stuff that Boxee knows how to handle. That includes content from Hulu, CBS, Comedy Central, and web streaming channels like Autotune the News, The Guild, and many more. The search bar is where the app really shines, but its categorical divisions make sense, too.

Clicker’s a free app for Boxee, and you can install it by heading to the App Box in the left-hand menu. Clicker will be included as a default app in the upcoming new release.
