iMac, iPod giveaway

In brief: We've posted a review of the video conversion tool VisualHub, Mediafour is giving away an iMac and iPods, Macfun is offering a 25% sale, iProng Magazine -- dedicated to iPhones and iPods -- has made its debut, and Scotsys is offering some great one-day promotions ... We have posted a review of VisualHub, the logical upgrade to the free iSquint, which has served many of us as the iPod video conversion software of choice for quite some time. VisualHub includes a well-written manual, while iSquint gives you the lyrics of a popular song in the Help menu. VisualHub can also use an Xgrid-enabled network to process any queued files with stitching available to refine a user's workflow. There are a number of cautionary notes in the manual though, not the least of which is the potential to wear down your DVD drive if you convert directly from a disc.
