[ music ] ^M00:00:01 >> I'm Tom Merritt from CNET.com. Here's a Quick Tip for sending huge files over the internet. You know how it is, you wanna send a friend an email with a huge photo of your partying with Cats or an episode of the It Crowd or maybe a copy of Pong and you get a warning. That attachment is too large. How dull is that? Well don't let email kick you around. There are services out there for sending large files over the net for free. One of the most popular is U Send It at www.USendIt.com. You can send anything up to 100 megabytes for free, without registration. Just send the link and download the secure file. It's dead simple to use. However, U Send It doesn't scan for viruses. Dropload at www.Dropload.com does. It has the same 100 megabyte cap as U Send It, but Dropload will scan for viruses. Now in the downside, it doesn't encrypt the download part. But 100 megabytes is so cramped. What if I wanna send a copy of Penn and Teller's Smoke and Mirrors game? That's close to a gig. Bring on www.TransferBigFiles.com. No fuss, no muss. Just large files up to 1 gigabyte being transferred for free. Now there are plenty of others out there with different file maximums and features. Take a look at www.ZUpload.com and www.MegaUpload.com as well. They're both free. Also, remember you should only send files you have the right to send. No copyright infringing please. That's it for this Quick Tip. I'm Tom Merritt for CNET.com. Remember, only send files you own. ^M00:01:36 [ music ]
