Ultrabook DVD

Backing up DVDs is an important topic for many people. Transferring the DVD to a portable format isn’t easy though and can take a lot of time. My daughter is away this weekend and I thought it would be nice for her to be able to watch some of her DVDs on her PC while she’s away.

Cyberlink Launches PowerDirector 11 Series. Win 8 Mobile Apps to Follow

I’ve been using it for a year now for all my YouTube content because it’s been stable and very, very fast. I sound like an ad, but I promise you, I’m a fan purely through use of the program. I’m excited to see that Cyberlink have launched PowerDirector 11 today.
