Review


MPEG-4 is rapidly becoming the standard format for video and rightfully so, as it offers great video quality and small file sizes. It is supported by iPod with Video, AppleTV, PSP and many other devices, however compressing videos to this format is a time consuming endeavor.

After some intensive reading up on the internet I decided on the Canon PowerShot A700, for a variety of reasons, but mostly because it offered 6 Megapixels, 6x optical zoom and lots of features in an affordable package.

iBank 2
Review


Have you ever gotten your credit card bill, looked at the total, and just knew the bank got it wrong? My answer to the problem is personal financial software.
