We don’t know many tech journalists and developers who could survive without their favorite screen capture and annotation apps. But regular folks can get excited about the new Snagit 2.0 update released on Tuesday, which arrives with even more powerful image editing features than before.
If it seems like you might have just read something about a new Thunderbolt PCI Express expansion chassis coming from Magma, that’s probably because we just mentioned it earlier this week. Now Magma has slipped out the official word, with a three-slot ExpressBox 3T soon available for preorder.
It's been five months since Thunderbolt technology arrived on the scene with the latest MacBook Pro refresh. At the time, not many devices were available to make use of the speedy new I/O connection. Since then, the new port has now appeared on new MacBook Airs, iMacs and Mac minis, and with that, the quantity of Thunderbolt-capable devices has improved as well! While some devices and accessories may not be available just yet, many should be arriving shortly. We highlight a handful that could help with all your future data transferring needs.
Apple and Intel showed us the way to the future of I/O technology in late February with the debut of new MacBook Pros outfitted with a Thunderbolt (formerly Light Peak) port disguised as a mere mortal Mini DisplayPort. Now that the high-speed data port is a reality -- and likely headed for other Mac models in the near future -- who’s taking advantage of it and how?
On Tuesday, Roxio took the wraps off the latest versions of its disc-burning media toolkits, Toast 11 Titanium and Toast 11 Pro. It’s been over two years since the company released Toast 10 after a stream of annual updates, but Toast 11 looks like it may be worth the wait.
If you were a kid (or had a kid) any time between the mid-1980s and the
turn of the century, chances are you have a bunch of old videotapes
with incriminating footage on them. Chances are also good that your
mother (or someone like her) has probably bothered you on more than one
occasion about converting those aforementioned tapes—because really,
who uses a VCR anymore? Using Elgato’s Video Capture, you can turn any
analog source into 640x480 digital video files, for playback on your
Mac, iPod touch, or iPhone.
With the next iPhone hardware confirmed from various sources to have video capture capabilities, it's now possible that the next-gen hardware will have its own iMovie like software, enabling video editing in the palm of your hand.
