Product Review – Google Calendar

It's no secret that I'm a huge Google fan. Google is so much more than Gmail and search – they have loads of useful free tools and I'm finding new ones all the time. Today, I'm going to review a tool I use every day for both professional and personal use: Google Calendar.

The basics

Google calendar is included with all the features you get when you open a free Gmail account. In spite of being free, it's really robust and loaded with features. I've used Outlook and Blackberry calendars before, and I can not find anything that's missing with Google calendar. If you have an events calendar for your company, you can use Google calendar to get it published on your website without any programming skills.

What's to love

Here are just the top 5 features that I love. There's many more, but this should give you enough incentive to check it out. There's also some newer features being tested at Google labs which you can enable as well (check under the Labs tab of calendar settings).

  1. It syncs with my Timetrade ( account so clients can schedule their own appointments. Timetrade only shows when I'm available, not my appointments or what I'm doing when I'm not available.
  2. Custom privacy settings make it easy to share as much or as little data as you want with your spouse or assistant.
  3. You can invite other Gmail users to events and when they accept it shows up on their calendar. This is great for getting things arranged with no confusion.
  4. You can specify multiple calendars to see in your main view. Mine shows appointments in red, birthdays I've entered in blue, US holidays provided by Google in blue and business tasks or reminders in purple. This is helpful because I know at a glance what appointments I have and can look just at that if I want. You could use this feature for various family members or company functions.
  5. I love the seamless sync with my Android phone.

I could go on and on (and often do!), But you get the idea – it's a great product that happens to be free. One of the my guiding principles when choosing tools to use in my solopreneur business is economy. When there are choices, I like things that cost less assuming they do the job. You could pay for an online calendar, but Google calendar is a great example of an excellent tool that is free.

Cinevate Atlas 30 LTS All Terrain Product Review

Demonstration and review of Cinevate’s Atlas 30 LTS All Terrain linear tracking system. In this video I assemble the Atlas and give you my overall thoughts of using this system. Linear tracking systems are an essential part of the cinematographer’s toolkit to add silky smooth motion and a sense of depth to video. I use my Canon 5D Mark II and a Manfrotto 501 video fluid head mounted to the Atlas to add motion to my videos. Bottom line: the Atlas 30 LTS is rugged, well made, silky smooth, and easy to assemble.

Semenex Product Review – How Does It Work?

It’s one of that questions that doesn’t’ exactly crop up over dinner with the parents “How does semen taste?” However it is often a question that you often hear teenagers pondering over at the beginning of their sexual lives. This might even strike you as an odd interest and usually prompts some of the most mind-boggling answers given. And yet, now you may find yourself trying to come up with an answer. Well, this review is here to show that from now on you could say just this one word: sweet.

What exactly is Semenex?

Semenex is a patented 100% natural powder shake mix for males. It’s primary benefit is to sweeten semen. This is achieved by mixing the up a special cocktail of all-natural and 100% vegetarian ingredients:

Pineapples, bananas, strawberry; cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg; broccoli, celery; fructose, citric acid; vitamins B6, B12, and E, calcium, magnesium, selenium, zinc; creatine and chlorophyll.

In addition to sweetening your semen, Semenex comes with a host of other benefits. The main one is that it ingredients help in the replenishment process of the nutrients lost during ejaculation, and by replenishing these nutrients, increasing semen volume.

How does Semenex work?

It is a well proven fact that by adding strongly flavored vegetables, like garlic to your diet or eating a diet of primarily spicy food, the taste of your semen can be changed. Some foods will make it taste better while other will make it taste worse. For example dairy food or food that has been processed will make it taste bitter and a lot worse that if you had a diet of fresh fruit and vegetables. However not everyone has the time to eat pounds of fresh fruit and veg every do so the bofins at Semenex have developed a special formula by adding just the right ingredients in the needed quantity and concentration to sweeten and improve the taste of your semen.

How do you take Semenex?

Semenex is easy to prepare and can be made up in seconds almost anywhere. It is prepared by adding two tablespoons into a shake bottle, one that has a sealable lide. Some water, around 175 ml (6 oz.) will do, or any even some fruit juice is added. Shake the bottle for a few minutes to ensure it is mixed through and then serve.

Tip for quicker results: The first night of use the user should ejaculate once or twice and drink the mix one hour before going to bed.

You need to drink a helping of Semenex for the following two nights but this time without ejaculating. Within 24 hours of the last administration the results will start to be noticed.

Taken every night, Semenex will adjust the taste of semen in a maximum of 24 hours. Semenex is a mild and pleasant drink with a light fruity meets spicy flavor which consumers described as close to the taste of pumpkin pie. In addition, fructose (which is the only ingredient not related with the semen taste enhancing) is used to sweeten the drink itself.

Diabetic Warning

Semenex contains fructose. This ingredient is added to give the drink a sweeter, more palatable taste when consuming it. However fructose is simply another name for sugar. Although it will give you an energy boost it does come with a warning for those of you who have diabetic and hypoglycemic disorders or if you have any kind of glucose sensitivity or intolerant conditions. With this in mind if you are in any doubt you should talk with doctor before starting any course of Semenex.

Health Aspects

All the ingredients used in obtaining the Semenex powder mix have been approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) as there are no other ingredient in Semenex other than fruits, vegetables, spices, vitamins and minerals, with the only addition of fructose for taste and a small quantity of chlorophyll for color. Also, no negative side effects have been discovered.

The Best Anti-Spyware Software Reviews

While viruses are typically designed to cause damage or corruption, spyware operates in a radically different manner. In some cases, the operation of spyware components may be so subtle that you do not even realize you are infected.

At it's worst, a spyware infection will attempt to capture your personal information without you even knowing it. In addition to stealing your personal information, spyware can contribute to identity theft and system crashes.

There is no shortage of tools out there that claim to help you eliminate spyware but some of these are extremely disreputable products that may end up doing more harm than good. Let's take a look at some of the better ones.

Windows Defender

Windows Defender is a free program that helps protect your computer against pop-ups, slow performance, and security threats caused by spyware and other unwanted software. It features Real-Time Protection, a monitoring system that recommends actions against spyware when it's detected and minimizes interruptions and helps you stay productive.

Now with 2 free support incidents for Windows XP and Windows Server 2003. Windows Defender is a decent tool, and well worth the installation on windows XP if you do not have any real time protection installed. It does not pick up as many threats as some other software on the market, so it is a good idea to use it in conjunction with some other on-demand scanners.

Webroot Spysweeper

Webroot Spy Sweeper quickly provides maximum protection with minimal interaction. Our completely upgraded user interface makes it easier than ever for users of all abilities to stay protected. With an easy-to-use console and customizable options, Webroot Spy Sweeper makes scanning for spyware a breeze. Thorough tests have proven that SpySweeper is one of the most comprehensive tools for locating and removing spyware from an infected system. It rarely fails to remove targeting code and does a good job of avoiding tagging legitimate applications as malware. It is a bit slower than Spyware Doctor, especially when running a full system scan, but as you can schedule scans to run when you're not using your PC this need not be a problem.

Spyware Blaster

Spyware, adware, browser hijackers, and dialers are some of the fastest-growing threats on the Internet today. Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted software. Block spyware / tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla / Firefox. Restrict the actions of potentially unwanted sites in Internet Explorer. SpywareBlaster can help keep your system spyware-free and secure, without interfering with the "good side" of the web.

Spyware Blaster (like all other anti-spyware tools) operates using definition files so it is worth checking on a constant basis to see if yours are up to date. Spyware Blaster can effectively immunize your PC against many different types of attacks making this a very strong contenter.

Spyware Terminator

Free 100% Real-Time Protection is included in Spyware Terminator basic version – an essential function most other applications charge you extra for. Effectively remove spyware, adware, trojans, keyloggers, home page hijackers and other malware threats. Every option the program has to offer is freely accessible in the free version, giving you all the benefits of commercial software. Spyware Terminator offers everything you could want from an anti-spyware tool – it is polished and full of features. All in all a very impressive piece of freeware.

Spybot Search and Destroy

Alongside of Ad-Aware, Spybot is one of the most established tools available. Spybots most stand out feature is the functions it offers for preventing spyware from infecting your PC. Click the immunize function and you will be able to protect your system against known Malware domains. These functions are passive and do not require any software running in the background.

Spybot is free; highly configurable; automatic updates; built-in tutorial, but it missed five known spyware apps in our tests, and we received no e-mail response from its technical support crew. Spybot is both free and adaptable for both beginning and power users, but it left behind some known spyware apps.

Ad-Aware 2007 Free

Ad-Aware has been helping PC users eliminate malicious software for many years now and has been a firm favorite of ours for a long time. The 2007 Free version brings the program up to date with a more user friendly interface and, more importantly, an enhanced scanning engine. Lavasoft claims that the redesigned engine is now more accurate and better able to detect evasive threats, such as rootkits. A full scan takes a long time but again you could run this at times when you are not using your machine. If you want to keep your Vista PC spyware free, you'll need to look elsewhere at least for the time being.

PC Tools Spyware Doctor

Spyware Doctor has been downloaded over 100 Million times; with a million more downloads every week. Millions of people worldwide use Spyware Doctor to protect their identity and PC security. Spyware Doctor has consistently been awarded Editors' Choice, by leading PC magazines and testing laboratories around the world, including United States, United Kingdom, Sweden, Germany and Australia. All current versions of Spyware Doctor have won Editors' Choice awards from PC Magazine in United States. In addition, after leading the market in 2005, Spyware Doctor was awarded the most favorable of the Year at the end of 2005.

Spyware Doctor continues to be awarded the highest honors by many of the worlds leading PC publications such as PC Pro, PC Plus, PC Authority, PC Utilities, PC Advisor, PC Choice, Microdatorn, PC Answers Magazine plus number of reputable 5-star ratings including CNET's and Tucows. Of all the other applications we reviewed, Spyware Doctor consistently outforms the competition in terms of it's scanning engine, successfully identifying and removing more threats than any other tool. It is also very accurate so you should not experience problems with legitimate tools being misidentified as harmfull. This is a piece of software that everyone who is a broadband internet user should have on their PC.

Zacuto C-Shooter Hands On Review

I added a test video with the rig that comes up right after the full screen graphic. DON’T STOP WATCHING! It’s worth it.

For the test I shot my son playing guitar and singing a song he’s been working on. I used the C-Shooter with a Canon C100 and Canon 24-105 lens. I added my Zacuto Z-Finder EVF Pro that was attached with the Zacuto EVF Standard Mount (Not included) I turned image stabilization off for the test. The C-shooter worked great!

All footage except the test video was shot with a Panasonic AF-100 and Lumix 12-35
C-Shooter product shots where shot with a Ninja 2 and ProRes LT with the AF-100 and Lumix 12-35
