Zamzar – Free Online File conversion

December 21, 2008

Now, threw my travels of the Internet I received an e-mail that was a WPS file. If you have never seen that extension, that’s ok. I barely have either. Threw my digging, I found that it was a Microsoft Works file. Now what is more befuddling then someone using Works? Well, how about the fact that Microsoft Office doesn’t open it. Jeez, Microsoft, get on the ball!

Anyhow, without any way to open this file, I scoured the Internet looking for a solution. I found one and it is awesome. It’s called Zamzar. Basically, you upload your file, and let me tell you, it can do almost ANY FILE to ANY OTHER FILE, and then when it’s finished they e-mail you a link to the finished file (Yes, you have to give them your e-mail address. Your conversion could take a very long time). That link is available for 24 hours. They also have a premium membership that is paid and you can keep your files in a digital locker so to speak on their website.

Anyhow, the link is here. Yes they have annoying ads on the website, but the service is amazing. Needless to say, I converted the WPS file to a DOC file. However, one of my friends converted a Youtube VIDEO FLV to a Animated GIF. That is CRAZY! Check it out seriously!

iPhone games released this past week (12/14), Simcity, Rolando, and I Love Katamari

December 20, 2008

Well, I know this post is a little late, but that’s cause we just got this site up and running. This past week, the iTunes App Store so the releases of I Love Katamari [App Store Link] $7.99, SimCity [App Store Link] $9.99, and Rolando [App Store Link] $9.99. 

I’m sure all three games are awesome. I saw the frame rate problems first hand with Katamari, and decided to wait till they released the performance patch to consider it. However, I did buy SimCity and let me tell you I am addicted. I have a confession to make. I never played a SimCity game properly; meaning I always used cheat codes for money. Due to the fact that the iPhone game is so new, I decided to play it legitimately and so far so good! It’s amazing. I definitely think you should check it out. As for Rolando, I have not purchased it, but all the reviews on the Internets seem great.
