A High-Def Video Network for the Internet Generation

August 31, 2011

Recently I have been exploring the various internet TV options out there and one of my favorite is Revision3.

Revision3

There are several reasons for this:

  1. Revision3 has a great selection of video content that features tech and geek oriented programming; however, there are other video selections and topics, as well.
  2. The broadcast quality of the video content is in high definition, which in itself makes watching the shows a real joy to view on just about any web platform out there (such as on your computer, tablet pc and phone). You can even download the shows to watch them later.
  3. Revision3 creates and produces its own content (see listing below) in a style that gives resemblance to an actual television network. The programming is real life based with a mixture of education and entertainment that keeps you going back for more.

If you have never visited Revision3, I encourage you to do so.  Below are links that will take you to the actual shows.

Manage Multiple Email Accounts with POP Peeper

August 29, 2011

Occasionally you will see here at What’s On My PC, repeat reviews on top quality software that is graciously made available for FREE and software that I feel is a must have. Today I am doing a repeat review on one of my favorite software programs called POP Peeper.

POP Peeper

In today’s world of computing, compared to yesteryear, it is not uncommon to have more than one email account. As a result, managing and organizing multiple accounts can get out of hand real quick. A solution to bring it all together is POP Peeper.

POP Peeper is an email notifier that runs in your Windows task bar and alerts you when you have new email on your POP3, IMAP (with IDLE support), Hotmail\MSN\LiveMail, Yahoo, GMail, MyWay, Excite, iWon, RediffMail, Juno and NetZero accounts. IMAP supports allows you to access AOL, AIM, Fastmail and other services. Send mail directly from POP Peeper and use the address book to email your frequently used contacts. POP Peeper allows you to view messages using HTML or you can choose to safely view all messages in rich or plain text. Several options are available that will decrease or eliminate the risks of reading your email (viruses, javascript, webbugs, etc). POP Peeper can be run from a portable device and can be password protected. Many notification options are availble to indicate when new mail has arrived, such as sound alerts (configurable for each account), flashing scroll lock, skinnable popup notifier, customized screensaver and more.

I cannot say enough good things about this program. It does it all when you are trying to keep track of multiple email accounts. In example, I currently manage five different email accounts with each account serving a specific purpose. With POP Peeper I can pull down any incoming email from those accounts in one window. The cool part about this is, once setup, I can color code each account. This allows me to easily identify each email account (by color) and allows me to pick and choose (manage and organize) what email is important, etc… The real power with POP Peeper is the email notification feature that will automatically check your accounts (at preset time intervals) and let you know (by visual or audible cues) of any incoming email.

News360 – Next Generation News Aggregation Service

August 26, 2011

One of the first things I do in the morning is preview the News from various sources on the internet. Recently I came across a news aggregation service, called News360, that not only is attractive but brings the news to you in a format that allows you to grasp up-to-date news events in a much broader sense. If you are not a news junkie, you soon will be once you experience News360 .

News360

Using News360 I get the true feeling that I can take in more information in a shorter element of time. This service uses a semantic analysis to inform you of major ongoing events and give you the news that is relevant to you. Once you find a news story that is of interest you click on it and an abbreviated version of the story will appear with tab options available that allow you to select and navigate to other media sources featuring the same story. You can go to the actual news source (or web page) featuring the story at any time from News360.

You are not required to signup for an account; however, I do recommend doing so. You will need a Facebook or Twitter account to signup. Once your account is setup you can then personalize News360 to pull down news from specific sources and save those sources under “My Interests” and/or “My Stories”.

News360 apps are available for the following platforms: iPhone, iPad, Win Phone 7, Playbook, Android and the Web.
