DVD ripping is the process of making a digital copy of a DVD or Digital Video Disc. Some DVDs are protected by copy protection named Content-Scrambling System (CSS), which prevents byte-for-byte copying of video streams. CSS has been superseded by newer technologies, which also prevent copying of DVDs. The Digital Millenium Copyright Act, or DMCA, prevents copying of copy-protected DVD and BluRay discs. However, it is perfectly legal to make copies of non-protected discs for your own personal use. (more…)
Adobe’s Creative Suite software has long proven to be some of the most powerful content on the market for both Windows and Mac computers, as Photoshop, Illustrator and other programs are some of the best on the market. However, most of these programs are incredibly expensive, as several of the titles cost well more than a grand. However, although Adobe has moved up to Creative Suite 6, the previous titles are still useful in providing programming assistance and improving images and creating digital content. And now, Adobe, although it has said it was a mistake, has let Adobe CS2 come out for free. It has done this directly through its website and by doing so it is now possible for anyone, at least at the present time, to log onto the Adobe website and download the content directly to their own computers. With the system requirements significantly lower than what is now required for the latest releases, just about any computer system released within the last several years should be able to use the software.

If you’re like most people, you like to be able to customize your Android device. One of the most popular ways to do this is to download and set a new background image—a.k.a wallpaper.

What is cloud?
To a layman the definition of cloud is obscure. It becomes fuzzier and vague with the complexities and varieties of services available through cloud. But to keep it simple we can say that cloud computing refers to a bunch of services, hosted in one or more remote servers and available via internet. Depending on their features clouds can be –private; which is basically a proprietary cloud, and public; services offered by a third-party hosting company. There is another type which is becoming increasingly popular. It’s called hybrid cloud and as the name suggests it has the best of both public and private cloud. (more…)
