What are things like these days in the p2p universe?

What are things like these days in the p2p universe? I've been using BitTorrent exclusively for a while but friends and family have asked for my help with p2p but BitTorrent is overkill for the small files (songs, ringtones, etc) they're looking for. Also, BitTorrent has no search facilities which they'll need. What programs are out there? How spyware-ridden are they? How corrupted with bogus files? And, are there any sites you'd recommend to keep up-to-date with p2p?

Can I sync my Palm Zire memos to my iBook?

I have a Palm Zire that I sync with my iBook. Calendar and To Dos sync with iCal and Address Books sync well, but I have to view my memos in the big bloated Palm Desktop. Is there an app for Mac to sync with Memos? Version Tracker has this but I have always disliked Stickies, and would prefer a nice little app with a list of my memos all in one place if such a thing exists. Suggestions?

Info on Wired Mention of Stanford Project Geocoding Photos?

Last month in Wired, David Weinberger mentioned a research project at Stanford that "compares photos with shots of known locations, automatically annotating snaps with information about where they were taken."

Anyone know what he's talking about? I can't seem to turn up any more information about the project.

Online Kitchen Timer

I'm looking for a timer application to use on my computer. I'm cooking for Thanksgiving the day ahead, and while the food is in the oven, I'm doing other things in the house. At the moment, I'm using the microwave as a timer. But I was wondering if there's an application or Firefox extension like an egg timer for my computer. Poking around Google isn't turning up much, but I'm also not sure how to word it. Anyone hear of or lay eyes on what I'm looking for?

1 - Create directories on a daily or weekly basis (i.e. 2211, 2311, 2411) to store downloaded files, and/or: 2 - Move the 'oldest' set of files to a subdirectory - or CD/DVD archive

Any ideas?

What software do I need on my work laptop?

So now that I've had to start looking for work and a new home, my five-year-old Dell laptop has decided to die on me. I'm probably going to order a Gateway at around the $1000 level (I don't do gaming or any of the stuff that would require something fancier), but what I want to know is what software I should make sure to get with it. I'm planning to do freelance work in editing and maybe translating; can anyone who does that tell me what I'll need besides MS Word (which I presume most files will be sent in)? Thanks.

I was going to preface this with "JobFilter" until I realized that looks like job 'work' rather than the intended Job 'guy to whom all that bad stuff happened in the Bible.' Damn ambiguous English language!

OSX Music Software

I want to be able to listen to the goodness on my iPod, but I can't find any software that will convert the audio from the avi files to mp3s. VersionTracker and download.com yield various shady, non-working shareware or freeware packages.
