Adobe Soundbooth CS3 audio editor

Among the many tools that make up Adobe CS3 is a new audio-editing addition - Adobe Soundbooth CS3. Unlike most audio editors, which are designed largely for audio professionals and enthusiasts, Adobe Soundbooth CS3 was created with video in mind.

Podcasting and iTunes: Boon and bane

Now that I've removed myself from the Worldwide Developers Conference and its accompanying distortion field, I've bent my brain a little farther to what effect iTunes 4.9's podcasting feature may have on the world of podcasts. At this early stage of ...

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
