Greetings and Welcome! Glad you stoppedby. It's been absolutely frigid in Colorado the past week. In themorning it's been as low as -12 Fahrenheit and the high hasn'tbeen exactly something to write home about. With three feet of snowhanging around outside, and no sign of it melting, it's been all themore reason to stay inside and look at software. I've got some goodtitles picked out to tell you about. So, if you're just about ready,just sit back, relax, have a cup of cocoa, and let's take a look.


Movie Label 2007, by Code|Aero Technologiesis a powerful program for keeping track of all of your movies. Intesting it out I found that the program is both intuitive and easy-to-use. That makes it perfect for users with all levels of experience. Iliked the fact that I could actually enter my entire movie collectionconsisting of VHS tapes, DVDs, and more.

Another cool feature of the Movie Label 2007 is that it snagsdata for you off the Internet. That means you get accurate informationabout each movie plus extras like graphics. With Movie Label 2007you can have more than one collection. So, for example, put your VHStapes in one collection and your DVDs in another. The program also makesit easy to manage movies when you loan them out. Cool.

Movie Label 2007 is full-featured and has lots of extras. Youcan catalog movies and even collection of television series. It supportsa wide range of media types including VHS, DVD, and even BluRay. So, ifyou've got lots of movies to take care of, check it out. It may be justwhat you're looking for.


CD and DVD Jewel Case and Label Creator for Word, by CreateCDLabels.comis a slick tool for making labels for your CDs and DVDs. I like thatfact that you can use your own graphics. I created several with picturesof the woods around our house as well as some with my grandchildren onthem. Cool

CD and DVD Jewel Case and Label Creator for Word is both easy-to-use and intuitive, perfect for both new and experienced users. Anothercool feature is that the program works on both the Mac and PC. So, ifyou make a lot of CDs and DVDs and would like to "label" them withsomething other than a magic marker take a look at CD and DVDJewel Case and Label Creator for Word. Keep in mind that thisversion does not yet work with Microsoft Office 2007.


Panorama Express, by Imatronicsis an amazing program that helps you to create virtual tours.I've seen virtual tools when looking at things like real estate, but Inever even imagined making virtual tours. When I stumbled onPanorama Express I had to take a look.

Panorama Express lets you create a virtual tour that has all thefeatures of a professionally generated tour. You can have maps that areinteractive, interactive compasses, and lots more. For example, you canput in some really cool motion effects that just might make youdizzy! I really liked that fact that I could also include backgroundmusic that plays while the tour is showing. This helps you to really setthe mood for your virtual tour.

Panorama Express gives you lots of options including differentways to output your tour. I had a blast playing around with this programand it's relatively easy-to-use. In view of the fact that I'm"graphically challenged" I'd say that a person with some photographyexperience would find the program downright easy. So, if you'd like totinker in the world of "virtual tours" you have to look atPanorama Express. Impressive!
