TOOZE roundups: YouTube editor, social medias in puberty, iCal tip, Canon’s S100

YouTube Video Editor

YouTube recently added a video editing function for users to combine videos, trip clips, rotate clips, add music, insert transitions and stabilize clips. There’s also color filters like Black and White or Cartoon, just to name two.

One small caveat though. Videos which have more than 1000 views will have to be saved as a new video after editing. It’s probably to keep the popular video unaltered.

Personally I haven’t tried it, but it looks like a great thing for those who want to make small changes after they have uploaded their video; I mean, there really isn’t a reason to use it when there’s other free video editors out there right?

In case you are not sure, there’s always Windows Movie Maker and iMovie. For photo slideshows, there’s always Animoto and MixBook.

Social media during its puberty days

Social media sites like FaceBook and Twitter didn’t use to look like what it does today. Like all pretty grown-ups (sort of), they also went through an awkward puberty. Kottke put together the first sites of FaceBook, Tumblr and Twitter, and as a bonus, threw in Google and Yahoo.

Quickly add events in iCal

David W. Martin did a short post about how one can quickly add events in iCal using simple human speech. It’s a nifty little tip that’s worth your few minutes to check out, especially if you are a heavy iCal user.

As an aside, you don’t have to click on the + sign. Instead, you can just hit Apple (Command) + N.

Wired’s short update on Canon’s S100

Frankly, when I saw that Canon has released a new camera (S100), I didn’t pay much attention to it until I saw Wired’s article, and realized that it was a successor to the S95, which is a successor to S90, which, is one of my favorite compact cameras. Basically, the 100 didn’t hit me; after all, 90 and 95 are double digits.

Anyhow, the S100 looks to be really good, so check it out if you are looking for a compact this holiday season.
