MAGIX Movie Edit Pro 16 Plus

Posted in Video

The newest program from MAGIX, Movie Edit Pro 16 Plus, is a lot like Movie Edit Pro 16, but with loads more options for your videos. It’s had a lot of improvements, like making the design more intuitive and adding some new features, including:

  • Secondary color correction
  • Blu-ray™ and AVCHD discs with animated menus
  • New DVD menu design
  • Title editor with improved quality and direct previewing
  • Object zoom function for precise effects control
  • Unique travel route animation

It has more than 1500 special effects, cinematic transitions and templates, and it has full HD support for HDV and AVCHD camcorders. You can use up to 99 multimedia tracks, and it supports Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound. And if you’re using more than one camera, you can easily edit together the footage from two different cameras.

This is only really scratching the surface of what Movie Edit Pro 16 Plus can do, though. If you want to try it out for yourself, it’s £69.99 from the Magix site, or you can download a trial version.

http Torrents

Posted in Linux, Mac OS, Solaris, Web Apps, Windows

http torrentsThere are several great BitTorrent applications available online. One of the many that comes to mind is uTorrent. Okay, that sounds great – but how about this – an Online torrent application that does not require installation on your system! The use of httpTorrents gives users the option to download files directly without having to use a BitTorrent client. How cool is that!

Basically, you don’t have to worry about:

  • - No uploading
  • - No blocking
  • - No ratings
  • - No wait

It is always 100% download and guaranteed with fast speed (claims obtained from website). Everyone can use httpTorrents, but in the future the download speed and number of simultaneous downloads will be limited for free users. Those who want to use it more than occasionally will have the option to sign up for a premium account without restrictions. So, why not check it out and experience it yourself now.

Office 2010 Starter Beta

Posted in Beta, Business Software, Web Apps, Windows

Microsoft Office 2010Well, news have been spreading around in the Internet world that even before Microsoft Office 2010 Starter Beta is officially released for testing, there were already torrents found online. Personally, I won’t really recommend any one to try downloading these unauthorised software, fearing that there could be bugs, of even viruses that come along with the setup.

On the other hand, if you truly want to be an official beta tester, why not do it the right way – via the Microsoft Office 2010 Starter Program Nomination Form [Microsoft via Digital Inspiration]. The new version, known as Office 2010 Starter Edition, will include Word and Excel applications but with limited functionality.

Here is a comment provided by the official:

All you need to do is use Office Starter 2010 Beta at home over the next few months, and let us know what you think. Office Starter 2010 includes Microsoft Word Starter 2010 and Microsoft Excel Starter 2010, which are great for basic tasks like writing letters, editing your resume, or creating a family budget.

The public beta of Office 2010 will start later this year though you can try Office Web Apps now itself.

Google Chrome 4.0.223.16 Beta

Posted in Beta, Fun Stuff, Site News, Software Companies, Web Apps, Windows

Google ChromeI have to apologise for my delay in reporting the latest software release on this site. Now that I am back, I hope to write up more reports here. Google Chrome 4.0.223.16 Beta is now released.

It is probably not a surprise to you when most of Google’s applications are labelled “beta“, but not for Google Chrome. Its stable version is at version 3.x, whereas this release is the next version of 4.x.

This new beta comes with many speed improvements. Google Chrome is becoming dynamic, with the ability to construct and change elements on web pages as fast as possible. Performance scores have improved by 30% since our current stable release, measured by Mozilla’s Dromeao DOM Core Tests!

Ubuntu 9.10 Now Released

Posted in Business Software, Linux, Site News, Software Companies

ubuntu-910For the long awaiting fans for Ubuntu, you must be pleased to know that Ubuntu 9.10 is now available live for your download.

The new operating system is much faster, smoother and more classic (beautiful). I’m already downloading this version to replace my current Linux operating system. The mention of its optimised boot-up speed and the use of ext4 journalising filesystems is just too tempting to refuse.

Whilst I am blogging on this, my other laptop is already in the process of installing Koala Karmic (Ubuntu 9.10). If you are using Linux, perhaps, this is the best time to switch.

Posted in Beta, Development Software, Fun Stuff, Linux, Site News, Software Companies

Ubuntu 9.10Ubuntu 9.10 will be released in 4 days’ time. So, be patient! The Release Candidate versions are, however, currently available for download if you wish to test them out. In this version, there is a host of new features.

Firstly, in terms of boot up, the performance has shown in some tests, that it took much shorter time. Thanks for the enhanced Upstart script written by Scott James Remnant.

With UbuntuOne integration, Ubuntu users can use the service as a storage server and share files with fellow Ubuntu users. 2GB of storage is given as a default. The service allows synchronisation of files, contacts and Tomboy notes across all Ubuntu computers and the Ubuntu Cloud. If you require more space, additional storage is available at a monthly subscription charge.

TMonitor 1.01 Beta – from CPUID

Posted in Beta, Fun Stuff, Utilities, Windows

CPUID has just rolled out a new product – TMonitor 1.01 Beta. This application is aimed to display the active clock of each individual thread of a multi-core, multi-threaded processor.

The software has a very high refresh rate (~20Hz) that allows users to visualize the smallest clock variation in real time. TMonitor is able to detect mechanism such as Intel Turbo boost, and therefore allows to clearly visualize its effect as the processor is working.

Check out the image on the right to view the effect of Turbo Technology on an Intel Core i7 870 based on a Lynnfield core. Unfortunately, it only works on Intel Core 2 and Core i3/i5/i7 processors.
