Action Movie FX is a really fun free iOS app that adds high quality special effects to videos, and it’s all done on the iPhone in a surprisingly easy package. Created by Hollywood studio Bad Robot Productions (makers of movies like Cloverfield, Star Trek, Super 8, and the latest Mission Impossible), the app came out a little while ago but has been updated to include another free special effect, demolition ball, alongside a missile launcher and a car falling from the sky. These aren’t poor quality effects either, they’re impressively made as you can see in the videos posted below. Other special effects, like tornadoes, helicopter crashes, air strikes, and gun fire, can be bought as in-app purchases for an extra $0.99 to add more fun into the mix. Download Action Movie FX for free from the App Store Download and launch the app from the iOS App Store on your iPhone or iPad, give it a video, and you’re ready to go. Just explore the app on your own and have a little … [Read more...] about Add Special Effects to iPhone Videos Easily with Action Movie FX

It has taken four years, but Apple finally updated its budget, pocket-friendly iPhone SE . The original model took the internal hardware of the iPhone 6s (about six months old at the time) and crammed it into the smaller body of the iPhone 5s. The new model takes the same approach, stuffing a lot of the iPhone 11 hardware into an iPhone 8 body. Is this the iPhone SE for you? Well, the $399 price is certainly very attractive, but it’s only a bargain if it’s a good fit. The iPhone 12 might cost more, but if you’re going to be happier with it, you might want to wait.

A couple months ago, I wrote that Apple is missing an opportunity by not offering Mac users a “netbook”—a scaled-down, bare-bones laptop computer generally optimized for e-mail and Web browsing. Recently I’ve been playing with an Eee PC from Asus to get a feel for what the netbook experience is really like. Read more… Asus is one of the leading purveyors of netbooks. It revolutionized the market when it introduced the Eee PC line, which starts at only $300—less than one-third the price of Apple’s least-expensive MacBook . You can buy these in big box retail stores like Target and Toys R Us. And in case you’re curious, Asus pronounces the system just “e.” Not “Eeeeeeeee.” Eee stands for “easy to learn, easy to work, easy to play,” according to Asus. Small but reasonably powerful The model I have—the 1000HA —is a bit larger and more robust than that basic system, which eschews a hard drive for a tiny solid-state drive and uses a 7-inch display. My system comes equipped … [Read more...] about Hands on with an Eee PC netbook
