Skitch – Image Anotation and sharing made easy

Friday, February 19th, 2010

How many times have you heard the old expression that a picture is worth a thousand words? Too many, right? Whilst a photograph or drawing can assist in pointing something out or demonstrating an issue, sometimes the picture alone is not adequate. After all, books and news papers put captions with photos for good reason: the picture by itself doesn’t always tell the full story.

If you are using pictures to share a picture with someone your talking to online, for example, you could snap a screen shot of a webpage or desktop program with it, and then add your personal annotations to it. A picture’s good, but when you put an arrow and a note to really highlight what you’re talking about, everyone will acknowledge what the excitement is all about. Or take hold of an image from your computer and work away on it. All of the annotating you add—circles, arrows, text,etc—are all contained in a layer set-apart from the image itself, so you’ll be able to drag them around without messing-up the original image. And it’s drag-and-drop easy to save your new-and-improved picture to your computer or upload it wherever you want.

So if you do a lot of working with images and text its worth checking out, ?lick here for the homepage where you can check out the video demo which really shows how user friendly Skitch is!

UltraMon 3.0.10

Thursday, February 18th, 2010

One of the most indispensable programs I have seen on the internet. UltraMon 3.0.10 is a fine utility useful for those who love to monitor their systems. Designed to monitor your system, UltraMon increases the productivity level and unlock the full capacity of multi monitors.

With additional Windows Buttons, users have the added advantage of quickly moving Windows or stretch a window across the desktop. Users can also use the taskbar to manage more applications, with a taskbar on each monitor and each taskbar only displaying the tasks from the monitor it is on.

At $39.95, UltraMon 3.0 10 is a delightful program that offers significantly more features than the cost of purchasing it. Users can also control application positioning with ultraMon shortcuts, mirror your main monitor to secondary monitors for a presentation; manage more windows with the taskbar. All these and more are what you get when you download this program for the above amount.

avast! Free Antivirus 5.0.418

Wednesday, February 17th, 2010

Avast continues to improve by the years, and remains one of the most reliable antivirus programs on the internet. Though a lot of people would rather go for the pro version because of added features, avast free antivirus is still good enough. Avast antivirus is able to detect the presence of most viruses in your computer and yet able to remove them.

Based on a powerful antivirus kernal that enables you to set a boot-time scan, avast also has a resident protection, heuristic analysis for emails, as well as a script blocker. Avast is fantastic when it comes to providing you with on-demand and resident virus scanner.

This version in review has some of the best security features seen in a free antivirus or security program. Features like: intelligent scanner; silent/gaming mode; behavior shield; network shield; green computing; antivirus and antispyware engine; web shield and so many others. Even though avast is a good program, I still recommend the pro version for those who need added security online.

Wednesday, February 17th, 2010

With this program you can browse through your media and play anything without much technical knowledge. doubleTwist supports most major audio and video formats. doubleTwist also works with mobile phones, PSP, cameras, MP3 player, and the rest.

It offers users the flexibility of going anywhere with their music, videos as well as other media with so much ease. Another wonderful feature of this program is that users can publish a video to YouTube, upload photos to Flickr or if they like, privately share an experience with friends online.

This application is free for download for anybody who wants it and can be downloaded over the internet at the publisher’s site. I really do not have any problem with it being a freeware as long as it performs what the publishers promised. There are other applications that can be used for similar functions, but I think it is worth trying out.

At $24.90 I don’t have a problem with Tunebite 7.1.2053.3350 because of it has features I like a lot. Talking about usage, Tunebite gives you that edge when it comes to making unprotected copies of any copy-protected music files. It simply records them while they are being played on your system. This program also helps you to convert your protected WMA files to MP3 formats without recording any hitch.

Tunebite allows you to play your copy-protected WMA and other files in the Windows Media Player as usual. With in-built high speed digital dubbing feature, Tunebite records all your files at ultra-high speed even as you listen to your music. The recorded music file is then saved on your hard drive as unprotected MP3, OGG and WMA files automatically.

Tunebite also has a free demo for those who would like to know how it works. Users can also download the freeware version alongside the demo, to get to understand how the pro version works. It is not a bad program for those who have some basic understanding of music files and how to record them.
