Download Youtube Videos

There are so many video clips posted on Youtube. Probably, there are videos you want to keep a copy for yourself for one reason or another. So how do you download videos on Youtube?
Well, there are plenty of ways to do this. You can search, download, and install a program that lets you download videos on Youtube. Whoah! Search, download, and then install? Isn't that a toll order for most users who just want to download videos on Youtube? How about download videos without searching, downloading, and installing a program? Like, just visiting a website that lets us download videos on Youtube directly?

Good news, there is a website that lets us do exactly just that. TubeG

TubeG is a shortcut for "youTube Grabber". Just cop-and-paste the URL of the Youtube video you want to download on the "Enter the video URL" area of the homepage of TubeG. Then click on "Download file".

After that, you will now see "Download as FLV" to download the video. Just click on that and your video will now be downloaded. Pretty easy, right? By the way, the default file name of the video you just downloaded is video.flv. You can just rename it the way you like, and most of all, you can watch it with your favorite FLV player!

New Ideas for a Techie Home

I’ve been looking for some useful home projects using a microcontroller chip. I’m still not sure on what kind of microcontroller I will be using but most probably it will be a Zilog microcontroller. Simple digital calendars, LED arrays, or even an electronic home security are just examples of microcontroller projects. I’m planning to go for the simple electronic home security for our home improvement, but I still have to consider many things like availability of the materials, costs, and aesthetics as well. Hopefully I can do it for the sake of home improvements.

I will be very grateful if you give me some suggestions. Thanks!

Microsoft said it will not ship the Windows 7 'E' version of Windows...

Posted on ZDNet News: Aug 03, 2009 4:47:16 AM

Microsoft on Friday said it will not ship the Windows 7 'E' version of Windows, even though Europe has yet to sign off on the revised plan. The plan calls for the company to ship Windows 7 with Internet Explorer, but present a 'ballot screen' in which users in Europe can decide whether they want Internet Explorer or another browser.

The software maker had originally proposed shipping Windows 7 in Europe without a browser at all — the so-called 'E' version of the operating system. However, European regulators indicated that might not satisfy its concerns.

Microsoft announced last week that it was open to the ballot screen, but said it would wait to drop the browserless 'E' version until European regulators approved its plan.

The software maker said late on Friday that it decided to ship the same version of Windows 7 for Europe after PC makers complained that having to use the browserless version of Windows 7 for a short period of time would be problematic.

"In the wake of last week's developments, as well as continuing feedback on Windows 7 E that we have received from computer manufacturers and other business partners, I'm pleased to report that we will ship the same version of Windows 7 in Europe in October that we will ship in the rest of the world," deputy general counsel Dave Heiner said in a statement.

The European Commission had said it "welcomed" Microsoft's move, also giving the software maker some confidence that it could ship Windows 7 with the browser included. If the Commission accepts Microsoft's proposal, it will fully implement that proposed ballot screen to Windows 7 buyers in Europe.

"One reason we decided not to ship Windows 7 'E' is concerns raised by computer manufacturers and partners," Heiner said. "Several worried about the complexity of changing the version of Windows that we ship in Europe if our ballot-screen proposal is ultimately accepted by the Commission and we stop selling Windows 7 'E'. "Computer manufacturers and our partners also warned that introducing Windows 7 'E', only to later replace it with a version of Windows 7 that includes IE, could confuse consumers about what version of Windows to buy with their PCs."

The move also solved a challenge for Vista users in Europe who, under the previous plan, would have had to do a clean install to move to Windows 7. It also allows Microsoft to sell an "upgrade version" of Windows 7 in Europe. Microsoft had previously said it would only sell a full version of the OS, though it had said it would sell that at the upgrade price, at least for a time.

Those who pre-ordered Windows 7 'E' through a recent discount offer will get the full version, as Microsoft had promised. However, Microsoft plans to now sell Windows 7 upgrades in Europe and also offer a higher-priced full version (for those without an earlier copy of Windows) — similar to what it is doing in the rest of the world.

CD-R King Car Cassette Adapter

I bought this CD-R King Car Cassette Adapter (TM-CCS01) just a couple of weeks ago so that I can connect my MP3 player to our car stereo. Unfortunately the CD-R King Car Cassette Adapter did not work properly with our car stereo. Every time I inserted the CD-R King Car Cassette Adapter to the cassette tape slot, the player just seemed to eject it. I tried to use the CD-R King Car Cassette Adapter to our home stereo player, and guess what, it worked. Maybe it was our car stereo that's broken so I tried playing a cassette tape into it. But it worked as well.

So I went back to CD-R King branch where I bought the Car Cassette Adapter and requested for a replacement of the same item (the Car Cassette Adapter had a 1 week replacement period). The saleslady then replaced it upon my request, with the official receipt of course .

I tried everything all over again. But the problem was still not solved even with the new item.

Maybe the CD-R King Car Cassette Adapter wasn't just compatible with our car stereo. Too bad.

PLDT to bring broadband direct-to-home

MANILA, Philippines—Telecommunications giant Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co. announced on Tuesday plans to launch within the year what it claims to be the most advanced broadband delivery platform called Fiber-To-The-Home (FTTH), which will deliver high-speed data services to residences and buildings.

“Fiber to the home is a quantum leap forward in terms of broadband services. This demonstrates PLDT’s commitment to offer its customers cutting edge communication technologies,” said Napoleon L. Nazareno, PLDT president and chief executive officer, in a statement.

FTTH uses fiber optic technology that transmits data via light signals sent through hair-thin strands of pure glass.

The new platform will be able to deliver simultaneously voice, video and data services at much higher speeds and larger capacities than DSL or cable technologies.

Initial tests done by PLDT have shown the capabilities of FTTH.

At a demonstration facility at the PLDT’s head office, an FTTH-enabled computer posted download speeds of up to 94.86 megabits per second (mbps) and upload rates of 69.39 mbps, according to PLDT Network head Rolando G. Peña.

At those speeds, it would take only a second to download a 5Mb mp3 file, three seconds for a 35Mb video clip and only a minute to download an 800Mb movie.

“Depending on how we’ll design the product, we can provide gigabit speeds to homes, not just megabit speeds,” he said.

PLDT chair Manuel V. Pangilinan tested the new technology by watching the recent Manny Pacquiao-Ricky Hatton fight last May 3 via live video streaming using FTTH.

“Excellent reception. Excellent definition of the pictures,” said Pangilinan, who also chairs the Amateur Boxing Association of the Philippines.

Encore Wireless G Router

My cousin recently bought a new laptop and she wanted to have a wireless home network after having an internet connection at home. So she asked me to buy her a wireless router for her wireless home network. Then I began to look for wireless router available in our area and I encountered known expensive brands such as LinkSys, DLink, NetGear, and some not-so-popular but cheap brands like Planet and Encore.

I felt like going against the odds so I chose between Planet and Encore. Then to finally choose what brand to buy, I looked closely at their prices and then the winner clearly separated itself from its contender. Encore ENHWI-G2 at Php 1,380 (~$29), while Planet WRT4152.14Ghz 54MBps at Php 1,595 (~$34). No more questions asked :).

Installation and performance will be discussed later. Just keep updated. :)

My Flash Drive's Still Flashing

It's been almost four years now since I purchased my 1GB PQI flash drive. And guess what, it still works without any failures. I bought this at CDR-King for Php1,080 at that time (or approximately $20) and now similar products only costs Php250 (~$5). Wow, after four years its price dropped to almost 25%. I should have had four 1GB flash drives by now with that price. Anyway, I have fully made use of it and still be doing until its final judgement comes. :)
