Here is another great online find: www.screenr.com

It’s proprietary software that lets you record what is going on on your desktop including audio as well as recording external sounds too. It lets you record for up to 5 minutes and then allows you to tweet or to send the url to your friends/followers. It provides you with the code to embed it into your own site as well.

Oh what fun! Here is an example of how this looks.

The Macbook Air


And there’s more! The latest in sleek design, Apple have taken the next step in minimising bulk and hassle for those on-the-go types.

The ipad is a very handy mobile unit but does not have the full functionality of a laptop. This has all the use of a Macbook Pro but less than half it’s weight at 1.06 kg rather than 2.54kg.

It is $1000 rather than $500 for an ipad or $300 for a netbook so as per usual is not a bargain. However, for those dedicated Apple followers that can’t be without the dazzlingly great graphic displays it could be a good compromise if you are finding it a bit much to be on the move with your heavy machine.

There is a 11″ or 13″ screen option and a bonus is that the screen resolution is 1,366-by-768 pixels compared to 1,024-by-768 pixels on most netbooks. The processor is not that fast like most netbooks, only 1.4-GHz Core 2 Duo. The battery life is 6 hours though which is pretty good. It is wider than a netbook so does have a standard size keyboard which most people will like a lot. The app opening time is really quick so there is no waiting around to be done here.

Again, if you have the money and you want a lovely new toy to play with then purchase away! Available at stores now!
