Download of the Day: Maddie

My friend often brings her little guy over for play dates, which is great, although I always get nervous when he climbs up on my office chair and starts pounding away at my laptop keyboard. Usually what ends up happening is his mom pulls him away and he's in tears for the rest of the afternoon. Since most of us keep our laptops and computers on for most of the day, its difficult to constantly keep a watchful eye on all the curious computer kiddies.

Maddie 1.0 is a great download for parents and anyone else who is worried about her or his four year old changing computer settings. This free program creates a simple, safe and kid-friendly environment to let toddlers pound on the keyboard and play with the mouse. It works by temporarily disabling the Windows key, and hides the other windows to prevent your baby from accidentally messing up that document you've been working so hard on!
