Tip of the week:
Online Video Editor
Called eyespot, those with a decent upload speed will have a lot of fun with this tool.
It will let you edit your home movie or captured game footage, and cut it up, put titles in etc.
I chose this one over the others, because it lets you do more normal transitions, like Crossfade.

Tip of the week #2:

Now this is a mega tool - You start up your webbrowser , point to google or youtube..
Press the button, and bam! A 3D representation of that search pops up. You can scroll through
thousands of results, it looks amazing... - 8 meg download
