ChromeOS on a Tablet

Acer are introducing a new Tablet running the Chromebook Operating System. Google have been making the Chromebook Touchscreen friendly for some time but this could be the first ChromeOS to have no keyboard input. Coupled with the ability to run Android Applications, it will be interesting to see if this is a viable product. Priced at US $330 makes it competitive for a 10 inch model. It has a 2048 x 1536 pixel display, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, stereo speakers, a USB 3 port, a microSD card reader, and a headset jack.

Video Splicing

Sometimes a full Video Editing program is not needed to do a simple splice of a video. A small tool is available for cutting part of a video and saving it as a new file. the program is called 'LossLessCut'. It is a free program for Windows, Mac and Linux. It does nothing else than that, but is useful for removing that unwanted false start to a home movie or not ending when it should. Mark the start point and then the end point of the wanted section. Click on the Scissors Icon and the wanted part will be saved while the original video is left unaltered.
