Some of you may remember, but more than fifteen years ago, Nero first launched its brand new product called Nero Burning ROM and to this day, it remains to be one of the most widely used burning software worldwide. Since then, Nero has evolved its product line to include multimedia software suite, which contains powerful applications for media management, video playback, video editing, video converting, file back-up, content syncing and disc burning. Nero 2014 Platinum is an action-packed software that is sure to do a lot more than you think is possible, but I think you'll find their application … Read more
LOS ANGELES -- This isn't a normal E3 for Nintendo. For the first time in recent memory, the company has decided to forgo a traditional press conference in lieu of a more intimate experience.

We've tried many freeware DVD rippers and converters, but so far, few have stood out. When we saw that the latest release of ZC DVD Ripper Platinum was listed as freeware, we were intrigued: Perhaps it's a premium tool that's now free? Or maybe a free trial version of shareware?

The latest release of ZC DVD Ripper Platinum, version 3, is listed as ready for Windows 8 and includes "major" bug fixes. It requires … Read more

The image sensor group that beleaguered photography company Eastman Kodak sold last November has been named Truesense Imaging.
Platinum Equity, which bought the Kodak image-sensor group shortly before Kodak filed for bankruptcy protection, announced the new name yesterday.
Getting a name is a cosmetic detail, but it's an important one for a former business group trying to set up shop as a business. The company sells image sensors for industrial and professional applications such as high-end medium-format cameras and video equipment with high frame rates.
"As an independent company, we now have a great opportunity to expand our … Read more
There are plenty of options--from iTunes to DoubleTwist to Windows Media Player--that will keep the average consumer satisfied in terms of basic multimedia organization and playback.

Bayonetta is an over-the-top action game and the latest from developer Platinum Games. Publisher Sega has tread carefully with Bayonetta by moving it out of the way of the holiday 2009 steamroller (Modern Warfare 2, Uncharted 2, etc.). Now, as part of the first wave of 2010 games, it has a chance to pick up new fans and maybe even soak up some of those electronics retailer gift cards that have become a popular generic gift item.
We've been seeing the game pretty regularly and have had the retail version for some time now. Here are our final thoughts: … Read more
