Self-Driving Cars

A nice collection of all the benefits made possible by self-driving cars. Though to convince anybody besides me, this guy needs a website not made in 1997.

IE Tab Firefox Plugin

Where has this been all my life? (Answer is Taiwan.) Sites like Netflix and Windows Update which require Internet Explorer can be opened in a new tab in firefox using this plugin. You still need to have IE installed on your computer, but you don't have to actually open it. Adds an "open in IE tab" option to your right-click menu on links. You can edit that and other behavior in the settings, including a filter list of sites you want to always open using IE.

Sweet Video Converter

Problem: In my first attempts to use iMovie to edit the video I shot last night at the American Idols Live concert, I was frustrated by the fact that iMovie only accepts a couple of formats. (The music was pretty excellent, by the way, to all the doubters out there). Solution: After minimal searching I found this sweet application, Squared 5, that seems able to converter anything to MP4 or other iMovie friendly formats. It even has some basic editing image editing, cropping and an automatic volume control that took a lot of the excess noise out. The last piece was better than anything I could find in iMovie, although I'm no expert in the app. You can compare the iMovie clip to Squared 5 clip with what I've loaded to YouTube.

A walk to remember

Mesmerizing stroll through Tokyo. Nobody seems to mind or notice the camera, which is yet another reason I must go there. Skip about a minute in for the good stuff.
