In my household we have five cell phone users, so for each user we have a two year contract that allows us to upgrade and pick a new phone from a variety of choices.

In this customized video they displayed and spoke:
They also described a free app to migrate my existing phone content to the new one using AT&T Mobile Transfer. A final step was to let AT&T know that I had my new phone all ready to use, so I visited http://att.com/activations/

I decided today to start creating a video series to help my web clients learn how to use WordPress, the most popular Content Management System in the world. First off I did a Google search to find which apps were recommended for Mac OS X.
Next, I looked at each app and then decided on iShowU, provided by Shiny White Box.
The user interface is Spartan-like but gets the job done:
Within a few minutes I had my first video screen capture saved as a .MOV file:
I was delighted to find that there was a built-in way to upload my new video to YouTube however in the middle of the transfer it gave me some error message and I had to delete the process.
Finally, I logged into my YouTube account and simply uploaded my new video:
The marketing folks tell me that YouTube.com is the #2 most popular search engine on the web, right behind Google.com as the #1 search engine.
