Facebook turned off e-mail updates for Pages = sad.

Managing a Facebook Page is so much more fun to work with if you have easy access to it and can post stuff effortlessly. For the past couple of years, I have been using my email client to update my Facebook Page [LEHSYS]. I was able to do screen captures, post images, post updates or combination, and simply send my updates in via email to a specialized address, but within the past couple of days, I’ve noticed that Facebook no longer accepts status updates or images via email.

Users can still update their personal Facebook page, but not a specialized Facebook page like mine [LEHSYS].

Webcam issues with Windows Movie Maker – try SplitCamera

Windows_Movie_Maker_2011_2012_webcam

Windows Live Movie Maker is a free offering from Microsoft that offers novice and average users the ability to edit video and from there, be able to share/publish it to Facebook, YouTube, eMail, DVD and even custom resolutions. It’s a basic editor with very simplified interface, and it’s part of the Windows Live Essentials Suite of applications.

This offering from Microsoft hasn’t been updated in some time. It still has all the same problems and issues it had in 2011. The only thing Microsoft added was the ability to export to MP4 and changed up the ribbon interface; which I don’t think is a massive improvement, but oh, well.

One problem that has remained the same is the problem with Windows Movie Maker not working with certain webcams [web camera (s)]; even Microsoft’s own LifeCam. This can be just about any webcam, but the point is that Windows Movie Maker sometimes just doesn’t work.

Review: DVDFab DVD Copy for Mac

A couple of weeks ago, I did a review on DVDFab DVD copy for the PC. It dawns on me that people with Apple computers needed ability to copy DVDs too. I can remember the days where family and friends bought VHS tapes. They built up this huge library of movies they loved, but when DVD came along, they had to turn around and start purchasing all the same movies to get better quality.

I think having the ability to copy the DVDs that you own into a digital format is something that every customer should be able to do. With having done a review for DVDFab DVD copy for PC, I thought it would be a nice counterpoint to show the Mac version of DVDFab.

Review: IRulu Universe 1s (U1s) Smartphone

A week ago, I was given the opportunity to review one of the latest smartphones from iRulu, the U1s. In the past, iRulu has focused on low-cost android tablets, but within the past year, iRulu has been focusing more towards smartphones. I’ve done other reviews for iRulu in the past on the tablets and I’ve done one review on their entry-level smartphone.

The U1s smartphone is a android-based device with a quad core processor and expandable memory up to 32 GB. It has a 5 inch IPS touchscreen. It has a lot of the abilities of high-end phones but without the cost.

Sling_TV_title_image[4]

I got my invite for Sling TV last night. Trying out Sling TV has been one of the things that I’ve been looking forward to  looking into.  Sling TV is a streaming service allows you to watch live television on selective channels;  it’s not a full range yet.

Sling TV offers channels like ESPN, TNT, TBS, food network, CNN, cartoon network, ABC family and a few others. Sling TV is being offered as a streaming service for these types of channels for only $20 a month. With the extra channel packages added, there’s a total of 27 channels.
