DVD burners have been the standard optical drives found in most new computers for years now. Blu-ray burners have been around for a while too, but only recently have they begun to displace DVD burners. Blu-ray drives are now quite affordable and they’re backward compatible with DVDs and CDs.

Six rings send a call to voice mail, but they also design the logo of Ooma, a company that lets you fire your phone company and replace it with free calling over the Internet using your existing phone. You don't need a computer or headset. You can call anywhere in the U.S. for nothing or overseas for pennies. Ooma's Telo box includes voice mail, 911, caller ID and call waiting.

When it comes to ENG video capture, form factor and performance are paramount, and with a total weight of 8.2 lb (including the lens, 4.3" LCD screen, microphone and battery) and phenomenal image quality, the JVC GY-HM750U ProHD solid state compact shoulder camcorder  makes for an attractive video recording package.

Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve is a high end color-correction solution that has traditionally been used on the Linux platform by professional organizations with vast resources. Unfortunately, the prohibitive hardware costs kept more casual users out of the game. But DaVinci Resolve is now available for the Mac platform, putting it within reach of users whose resources are only half-vast.

The keytar helped free keyboardists from the restraints of their immobile instrument. Playing the keys while rocking out at the front of the stage is a true novelty. However, it's usually celebrated more for its campy look, rather than what it contributes musically.

I have a backup methodology in which I maintain two external hard drives. I back up all of my files—documents, pictures, music, movies, etc.—on each drive so that if one of the drives goes belly up, I still have all of my files intact on the other drive. This is almost like maintaining a RAID 1 array, except with a lot more hassle.

Adobe Acrobat X is here. It’s the latest version of the software that lets you create, view and distribute documents that appear the same regardless of the available typefaces or platform—print or Web. It’s a powerful bit of software that enables universal document creation and distribution of Acrobat's PDF files.

I have long been a fan of Acer notebook computers. It’s not that they’re much of a fashion statement, as there are other brands you can own that will garner far more attention at the no-fat soy latte macchiato bar. What I like is that they’re priced right and I’ve had trouble free, long-term experience with at least three of them.

In this post I'll clearly explain what separates these camcorders from the competition.

When it comes to protecting sensitive photographic, video and audio gear from the trauma of bouncing around trains, planes and automobiles, it's hard to beat the protective qualities of nylon/polymer cases. HPRC, one of the better-known manufacturers of rugged nylon/polymer cases has just introduced a pair of impact-resistant shoulder cases small enough to qualify as carry-on baggage.
