Review: AoaoPhoto’s Video to GIF Converter

Recently, you may have noticed more websites using animated GIFs to get your attention on a variety of topics they might be covering. This is an alternative to embedding a YouTube video. Sometimes it’s easier to show just a short animated GIF then trying to embed the entire video.

As a publisher, this is when you need to have a utility software that allows you to extract just a small portion of the video and create an animated GIF.

I was recently contacted by a developer of the software package that does exactly this; it converts videos into animated GIFs so that they can be embedded in websites or simply emailed. The software package is called Video to GIF Converter from AoaoPhoto.

Review: iRulu Windows Tablet – W1002

In the past couple of days, I’ve been taking an opportunity to look at a new iRulu tablet. IRulu typically focuses on android tablets and smartphones, but now they have a Windows tablet that they offer. Most people would think that the Windows tablet that their offering would be a limited version of the Windows operating system and wouldn’t be much worth, but I’m here to tell you that this new Windows tablet that iRulu is offering is quite amazing.

It has easily become my new favorite toy to play with because it runs all the normal Windows applications that you’re used to seeing. It runs a full version of Windows 8.1 and it’s fully certified from Microsoft- and it’s only $229. This thing is a steal.

Roku: PlexPass Users PREVIEW of the new interface

Yesterday, Plex users with PlexPass got a ‘preview’ of the new user interface for Roku. Keeping with the understanding it’s a preview and not the finished product, Plex says that more improvements are coming.

The old user interface for Plex on Roku was anything but exciting, but it was functional. The user interface that user see with the Plex home theater, the android application and other mobile devices are exceptionally better than what most Roku users see now.

Justified Hypocrisy Of Using Ad Blockers

I think if you’ve been on the Internet for more than 15 minutes, you recognize that the Internet is filled with advertisements. Advertisements run pretty much every website that you visit. The truth is people are cheap and frugal and they don’t pay for content. There’s a few people who do websites for the purpose of generosity, but most people have websites that have advertising on them; like this one.

The general purpose is to find advertisers or advertising services that are compatible with the content that the author or the website is generating. The authors/operators are rewarded for having a great website with content that people enjoy.

The problem comes in when websites are created for the ancillary purpose of simply generating revenue; filled to the brim with random advertising. Pop-ups, we directions, misleading links or advertisements that are randomly mixed in with content to make you think it’s part of the website. It’s deceptive, it’s misleading and in some cases it can be a security problem.

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].
