Google now offers call recording in Gmail

Gmail's very useful voice calling service is even more useful now, with the addition of call recording.

Mozilla's Rainbow plug-in brings audio and video recording to Firefox

Mozilla has just announced a new Firefox plug-in called Rainbow that will let users access audio and video recording capabilities through the browser.

Use MP3 Skype Recorder to defend yourself against faceless corporations

"I want you to know this call is being recorded." Those were the first words I told the service rep who picked up the phone at my ISP's large call center (012.net, to any Israelis who may be reading this). Having tried resolving a basic problem with the service for two months now, I was beyond frustrated; I was desperate, at my wits' end. My requests were repeatedly shot down, ignored, altered,...

Hate the voice on your GPS? Change it with Garmin Voice Studio

If you can't stand to hear another word from the obnoxious voice that delivers turn-by-turn directions on your GPS device, you may have a way out. If you've got a Garmin GPS, you can use the new Garmin Voice Studio to replace the device's recorded phrases - "recalculating!" - with recordings of your own. Personally, I can't stand the sound of my own voice any more than I can handle the smug,...

Excellent free burning program ImgBurn turns 2.5

Last year, some of our commenters steered me toward ImgBurn as a Nero alternative, and it's been my CD and DVD recording app of choice ever since. It's an excellent lightweight program, handles just about every kind of disc-related task imaginable, and it's totally free. Version 2.5 boasts a big list of additions, changes, and bugfixes, though the core functionality remains the same. It still...

Apart from a large library of audio streams, Icy Radio includes several nice skins and streaming video support. As with Screamer, you should expect...

Yes, Madonna, who recently took some guitar lessons and strapped on a Les Paul, is going down the road of Radiohead and Oasis, as reported earlier in the week. Apparently the leading female pop vocalist over the last twenty or so years is dropping her record label about as hard as she dropped her Motown pride when she hit the bigtime with 'Like a Virgin'.
