- OwnCloud – It’s like Dropbox for your own server
- Setting up OwnCloud on GoDaddy – I’ve done it, and it’s not hard; especially if you know how to make MySQL databases work with websites.
- BitTorrent Sync – Using torrents to sync your data with yourself and your friends.
- SyncThing – Like BitTorrent Sync, but open source.
- Vienna – Standalone RSS reader for OS X
- NetNewsWire – Another standalone RSS reader for OS X
