Google Voice now testing number porting

If you’ve not checked out Google Voice, it’s something that I would highly recommend doing. The service gives you a number, which can be used to receive calls on virtually any phone that you like. You can also place calls, send/receive texts and a whole lot more. Well now Google is slowly rolling out a new feature: Number porting. That’s right, some users are now able to port their current phone number to Google Voice for a $20 fee. This…

Well the station is wanting to make their shows even more available to the masses by providing an iPhone app. The app is available free of charge, and allows you to watch full episodes of their shows.

Free software teaches you to read lips

Have you ever wanted to master the art of reading lips? Most of us that are fortunate enough to not have impaired hearing think of this skill as a novelty. However, even if you have perfect hearing, there can be situations where this is useful. Say, you’re in a noisy room, and are trying to hold a conversation with someone. Being able to read their lips can help prevent the need to ask what? repeatedly. Well if this is a…

Google’s Translate app gets a conversation mode

One of my favorite online discoveries back when the internet was still somewhat new to me was Babelfish. The ability to instantly translate a block of text (and even entire websites) from one language to another was simply amazing. These days that sort of thing doesn’t seem like quite such a big deal. However, Google still manages to find new ways to amaze us with their various innovations, even in the world of translation. If you have an Android phone,…

Free Video Converter – freeware offers cool photo, video and audio conversion

Free Video Converter is a free media conversion program which combines a great looking user interface with some seriously powerful functionality. There’s no shortage of video converters out there, which offer to transform video into different format for different devices and uses, but this is the first we’ve seen which also offers image slide show, and audio conversion on the fly within the same interface.

Wordmark.it – The free font selecting web app

I’m no graphic designer, so I don’t often find myself looking for a font to use. Of course when I do need to whip something together in Photoshop, I hate sifting through fonts. Usually I just pick Comic Sans and go about my business (I kid, I kid). Seriously though, there needs to be a better way to go through the fonts I’ve already got than highlighting some text and scrolling through each one. Actually, that’s exactly why Wordmark.it was…

JewelBeat – free music and sound effects for your projects

JewelBeat offers free music and sound effects for your projects. You can use the audio for everything from a presentation to your YouTube video, no fee no charge. I suspect the ‘free’ bit is a launch marketing exercise until they’ve built up enough users, so if you’re interested I suggest you grab some stuff now before they start charging. Oh and they would like a link back to their site in exchange for the tracks.  Use these free music tracks…

Apple’s App Store now open for business

If you’re a Mac user, then you may want to grab that latest software update for OSX. As long as you’re already running Snow Leopard, you can download 10.6.6, which among other things, gives you access to the new App Store. That’s right, it’s live! As of now there are roughly 1,000 apps (both free and paid) in the store, but this number will no doubt increase substantially in the future. One of the most notable things is that you…
