  • How-Tos: How to download YouTube videos using Safari or Firefox

    If you've spent more than a couple of hours on the Web you understand that the thing is choked with videos--from YouTube to Vimeo to news and entertainment sites.

  • How-Tos: How to Stream Digital Media From Your Windows 7 PC

    With the immense popularity of digital cameras, smartphones, and tablets for taking pictures and capturing video, and the wide availability of affordable digital music and movies, many people have amassed enormous collections of digital media. Much of that media typically finds its way onto a PC or mass-storage device of some sort--and, unfortunately, it can sometimes go unused for ages.

    It's been demonstrated that the average listener can tolerate exactly 27 days of holiday-themed music per year. At the same time, very few of us are willing to pungle up the dough necessary to obtain 648 hours of eggnog- and reindeer-themed tunes.
