AMD Fusion Media Explorer for AMD users

I never knew microprocessor manufacturer AMD makes software too until I read about AMD Fusion Media Explorer at Chris Pirillo. The AMD Fusion Media Explorer (FME) is a 3D social media and digital media browser, that allows you to explore your digital media content from either your local machine or online resources such as Flickr, YouTube, Microsoft Live as well as Facebook.

Unfortunately, AMD Fusion Media Explorer will install only on machines running AMD processors. Intel users are shown the finger.

If you own an AMD computer, this is what you can do with FME.

With AMD Fusion Media Explorer you can search and view photos from your local hard drive, removable USB or SD cards, and online sources, such as Flickr, Facebook, and Microsoft Live using a 3D Ribbon interface. When you search for photos, FME will also show you related photos and videos from these online sources. You can also upload your photos to your Facebook or Flickr account.

Photos aren’t the only thing FME handles. It can also play music and videos. The AutoDJ feature automatically queues up playlists for you from the same genre or artist you are currently listening to, I guess something similar to Predixis MusicMagic Mixer.

You can find video, movie, or TV show using the integrated search engine or 3D Ribbon, and even start playing multiple videos in the ribbon, while you browse, making it easier to find what you are looking for.  The better the performance of the machine, the more videos FME can play simultaneously.

Like pictures and music, FME will present related YouTube videos pertaining to the content you are currently watching.

How to Record CPU and Memory Usage Over Time in Windows?

Whenever the computer is lagging or some application is taking too long to respond, we usually fire up task manager and look under the Performance tab or under Processes to check on processor utilization or the amount of free memory available. The task manager is ideal for real-time analysis of CPU and memory utilization. It even displays a short history of CPU utilization in the form of a graph. You get a small time-window, about 30 seconds or so, depending on how large the viewing area is.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.

69 alternatives to the default Facebook profile picture

If you have changed the default Facebook profile picture and uploaded your own, it’s fine. But if not, then why not replace that boring picture of the guy with a wisp of hair sticking out of his head with something different and funny?
