Quite a common question, especially after using GarageBand (included with iLife, from Apple) — Windows users would like something similar that they could use at home.

Fortunately, there are alternatives such as:

My advice: Magix Music Maker. Yes, it’s not free, but I find it worth the money. Cheaper than getting a Mac.

If you’ve got a new Apple Mac computer that came with iLife ’08, you may have been frustrated with the new iMovie.

At school we have both iMovie 08 and HD 6, so if you have a Mac at home and want to get iMovie HD 6, just head to this webpage to download it. It’s free for iLife 08 users.

The best free software to capture screenshots (static pictures or “photos” of your computer screen) or screencasts (short video clips of what you are doing in your computer screen) is Jing. Techsmith has better paid alternatives (Snagit, Camtasia Studio), but then again, they’re not as cheap as free.

Jing comes in Mac OS X and Windows flavours, is a free download, and you can find lots of information (FAQs) and tutorials on how to use it at the developers’ blog.

In our case, I recommend you to save the captures as files to your Local storage to be later embedded into a webpage.

Many of you have commented on not being able to edit Jing’s SWF videos.

If you want a more powerful application, the “professional”, alternatives to Jing are Adobe Captivate and Camtasia Studio. Both have trial versions that you may want to use. Windows only. These two are not free, obviously.

Enjoy!

This article is the answer to a question I’ve been asked many times: How to copy music from an iPod to a computer?

Hope you find it useful.

For those of you who don’t read articles (or simply don’t have the time to do so), here are the links (for all iPods, except the iPod touch/iPhone) to free software that will allow you to backup the music library from your iPod:

If you have a newer iPod (touch) or iPhone, you’ll have to read the article, sorry.
