Ezine 197 – Ten Free iPad Rippers

Ezine 197 – Ten Free iPad Rippers

At the beginning of the year WinX gave me 10 free copies of a DVD ripper.  Well now they have given me another 10 free copies of their iPad Ripper.  What this WinX ripper does is convert DVD movies to iPad video formats such as MPEG4 and iPad H.264.

Surprisingly, you can also use the software to convert DVD to iPhone, iPod, Apple TV.  With this WinX iPad ripper you can also extract audio from DVDs to MP3 music files.

If you would like a free copy then send a recommendation to me for a computer gadget, utility or handy tool.  My main criteria for judging the suggestions is ‘will other readers like this tool’.  If the decision is close I will take into consideration how passionate is the person about their gismo.

I will collect all entries for two days ending Friday 19th of August, that way I will judge based on the best response rather than the fastest. To enter my iPad competition, simply reply to this email with your recommended tool / gadget / utility.

Guy Recommends: The Free IP Address Tracker (IPAT) IP Tracker

Calculating IP Address ranges is a black art, which many network managers solve by creating custom Excel spreadsheets.  IPAT cracks this problem of allocating IP addresses in networks in two ways:

For Mr Organized there is a nifty subnet calculator, you enter the network address and the subnet mask, then IPAT works out the usable addresses and their ranges. 

For Mr Lazy IPAT discovers and then displays the IP addresses of existing computers. Download the Free IP Address Tracker

Hohm – For Readers Based Only in the USA

See how you can monitor then save fuel and water costs.  One geek I know in the USA says that while it did not save him much money, he was fascinated to see just how his home consumed power.  He reckoned that the perfect home would be one with 2 or 3 children who could be educated into ‘green’ ways, while saving mom and dad a bundle on utility charges.

Let us hope that Hohm is one of those initiatives that starts in the USA and spreads to the rest of the world.  Unless of course your country already has a similar system!
