On April 16, 2016, in TechFan, by Tim Robertson

David and Tim have a great argument in the second half of the show about streaming first run movies. Also, do you trust the technologies that require an online connection?

FotoMagico 3.5
Boinx Software

Price: $149US for Pro version (used for this review), $29US for Home version

When I travel, I like to take pictures. Lots of pictures. In fact, my kids make fun of me because I’m always having them pose in front of some landmark, or on the beach, or, well, wherever I feel like taking another picture. I’m sure many of you reading this do the same thing.

But what do to with the pictures once they’re on your computer? There are only so many you can print. And how often do we go back to look at them?

Here’s a really great way to share those pictures, and at the same time, have a back-up of your precious memories: make a slideshow with FotoMagico.
