More Interesting Internet Finds – WE April 5, 2013

Introduction

In the course of going through the more than 200 news feeds, I often run across things that I think might be of interest to other user group members.

I have published Interesting Internet Finds monthly in the Boca Raton Computer Society’s Boca Bits monthly newsletter, and share them through the APCUG PUSH program with other computer/technology user group newsletter editors, for some time now.

Each month, I have many more than I can use, so have decided to start publishing some of those that were not used here.

A great explanation of the different formats and when to use them. I prefer to keep the lossless originals in a separate marked folder, and convert them to lossy in another folder, so I always have the best image, audio, video, etc. available. Of course I keep both backed up in various places.
