TubeWiz 1.5 – a fun way to fix videos

Friday, January 23rd, 2009

Now here is a cool tool that is fun to use. Tube Wiz functions as a good video editor that can correct picture shape, rotate the picture if it was filmed upside-down or sideways by mistake, and reduce or remove camera shake for many types of shot.

The really nice feature I love about this software is that it has Dface blurring built-in. It lets you hide objects for privacy, such as faces, signs and licence plates, or you can even replace them with images. Ain’t that cool?

In the latest version which just hit the software market- Tube Wiz 1.5, a couple of changes have been made to make the tool even better.

The changes include:

  • Easy in-video editing and trimming
  • Full support for YouTube widescreen & HD fomats
  • Export directly to Flash video format (also AVI & MKV)
  • More international fonts in captions, subtitles, etc

Want to see if this is what you need?

Aurora Password Manager

Friday, January 23rd, 2009

Here is a tool really worth checking out. Aurora Password Manager is a handy piece of software for storing and editing diverse confidential data, such as your credit card number, cellular phone pin-code, code to a cipher lock, website access code, e-mail box password and the like.

How Does It Work?

The utility locks all stored information with a strong 256-bit AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) password and ensures its safety.

The cool thing is this tool is developed with simplicity and ease of use in mind. Even if you can’t make up a password on your own that is difficult to guess, the program can do it for you.  With a built-in advanced password generator, that randomly chooses a case-sensitive combination of characters, this cool tool is really something.

The latest version released not too long ago is Vista compatible. The only con to this tool is the price, $29. But then the money may save you a lot of headaches and protection from identity thieves.

Want to check it out? Go for the trial version first and see if this meets your need…


BurnAware Home

Friday, January 23rd, 2009

If you have been less than satisfied with previous burning software you’ve been coming across, you may want to give this a shot. This tool is called BurnAware. BurnAware allows you to easily perform the most common disc burning tasks: write to all CD/DVD media types, including Blue-Ray; write Audio CDs and DVD-Video files; create and burn disc images; write multi-session discs and much more.

I love the fact that it includes additional burning tools which help you to copy your CDs and DVDs with digital photos, documents, games, movies and music easily. One other thing worth mentioning  is the fact that with BurnAware Home you can compile and burn bootable discs and disc images.

For almost $30, the price thing kicks in again. In my personal opinion it’s just too expensive. I mean there are free tools all over the internet that does stuff similar to this. The tool is a good one but I think it would fare better if it was a freeware that accept donations instead of the $30 price tag. But then that is just me. The truth is it does what it says it does, which is something in its favour. So go check it out and see if it is money worth spending for you.

At least check out the trail version, a 10 day trial may convince you. Go to
