I like audio quite much, specialy PC kits, I own a Logitech Z680 which was the most powerfull PC kit out there, but there's a new competitor in the field. Altec Lancing is launching this new high end 5.1 kit with all the bells and wistles you could dream of.

  • 575 Watts total
  • Dolbly digital 5.1, Dolby Pro Logic II Movie / Music, Dolby DTS. THX certified
  • Infrared remote control
  • 2 optical digital input and 1 coax digital input
  • USB connection
No retail price for the moment, I believe it's gonna be Coooosty.

Picasa 2 : ACDSee Killer ?

Being an ACDSee fan, I've never find any tools that come closer to it, I've tried the different freeware out there, but always switched back to ACDSee. Having created my blog here on Blogger, I decided to try their tool to post images on the blog. Man, their picasa 2 software is amazing, the interface is soooo sleek, I love it and it has all the feature you could dream of and even more. Moreover, it scans all the picture on your computer and shows them in a single consolidate view, I've discovered old pictures I had on my computer with this one ;)
You can also do a lot of photo editing with it like cropping, rotating etc... You can also export a folder as a web page ready for publishing online. I haven't seen all the features yet, but this one looks very promising.
I definitely recommend it and believe me, I'm pretty demanding when it comes to software.

Download it here

A little addition :p

I like the trackback feature on blogs, since it's not standard on Blogger, I used Haloscan service.

Haloscan commenting and trackback have been added to this blog.

Now let's hunt for some new addons and customisation :D

A newscomer in the blogging scene

After I wondered what the hell was all this hype about blogz, I get to find some very fine blog with lot of valuable infos and after I realised it was a powerfull communication tools for me, I decided to have a go with it. Later, I'll make my business blog as well, not sure yet how I'll mix that together.
To present myself briefly, I'm living in Lyon, France, I've been computer addicted since 20 years (I've tried to cure myself but no luck). I spend a lot of time seeking for new stuff on the Inet, so I'll share this knowledge with you. My main goal is to help people being more productive on their computer, discover new tools, and to stay on the edge of the technology.

So come here often and don't hesitate to share your comments on the posts I'll be sharing with you ;)
