SnagIt to WordPress.com

This is cool.. I love SnagIt from TechSmith. And I love WordPress as well. TechSmith has an output plugin for SnagIt that directly posts to WordPress. Saves you a lot of hassle. You can align the image, some basic formatting and you can also choose to post as a draft, not publishing it directly. You can try out a copy of SnagIt from:http://www.techsmith.com/screen-capture.aspAnd the Output Plugin here:http://download.techsmith.com/snagit/outputs/enu/typepad.snagaccP.S: This entire post is from the plugin. I am loving it ­čÖé

Google Apps & Appliance

Looks like Google is all set to pep up its Search Appliance business as it looks like its getting an overwhelming response for the same.

This has been marked by the agreement to accquire Postini, that offers hosted security and compliance solutions for email, IM, and other web-based communications.

Accquiring Postini, has come as a surprise to many. Especially to Symantec, who are the leaders in the domain. This accquisition would make Google a global competitor.

Also, for those interested in Google and are capable of getting through, check this out – Google is hiring Software Engineers to work on the Appliance project from their India Headquarters located in Hyderabad


Order of the Phoenix

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is going to be out today and yes as before it has stirred some amount of curiosity in the younger generation. My views about the potter movies: they are kinda incrementally good

I have always liked the last one better than the one before except for the exception of the Prisoner of Azkaban. I somehow thought it lacked a lot of things that the one before offered. It had been fun to watch these movies even though i am not officially a teenager!! Especially to watch these kids mature on screen.
