AVCHD editing for the everyman

We recently had the opportunity to test out a Panasonic HDC-HS100 high-def video camera for our 2008 Holiday Gift Guide. The camera shot beautiful looking video, but the native AVCHD format was not fun to extract or try to edit. Our...


What cloud services can learn from Flickr's errors

How secure is this network closet?

I am no security expert, but is it not bad to leave a door to the telephone/network wiring closet wide open all the time? Wouldn't take much to knock a certain publishing company's phone system and more offline. Seems to be just...


Gadgets consolidate dispersed media on your home network

Any collector of music or taker of digital photographs knows the pain: You've got a killer collection of digital stuff on your various home PCs and NAS devices, but no way to easily show it all to guests without people crowding...

iTunes DRM free, but there's a catch

There'a a lot to be happy about with the Apple's news that nearly the entire iTunes library will be available without Digital Rights Management (DRM) protection. For one, you won't have to count how many computers you've authorized....

Tech journalists aren't always techies

Our IT guys shouldn't tell we editorial types to disassemble any sort of technology in a troubleshooting effort: It's not my phone, though my mini-screwdrivers were used to perpetrate the crime. But, if you're trying to reach...


Flash support coming to Google phones, but what about the iPhone?

Halloween Trilogy of Tech Terrors series: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

If it's Halloween it can only mean one thing: Horror movies. Of course, the best of the horror flicks don't really have much of a tech bent, unless you're counting chainsaws and the rising of the dead, but we found three in the...
