Today's Cool Site...

Stamp out file compatibility woes

Sharing files with other people can be a real hassle. That's because not everybody uses the same software as you.

For example, your friend might send you a Word file. But maybe you use Works or some other word processor. You may not be able to open the file.

You could ask your friend to save the file in a different format. But who wants to be a pest?

Instead, try YouConvertIt. This free site will convert files to different formats quickly and easily. Just select your files and choose a format. It's that easy!

But YouConvertIt can do so much more than that. It will help you download and convert videos from YouTube and other sites.

You can also convert units. Or, upload your files and send links to friends and family. It's an easy way to transfer large files!

Never scald your hands again! This light will tell you what temperature your water is!

Every day, Team Komando produces some of the best content you'll find anywhere on the Internet. Here is a sampling of what's new on our site today!

Enter to Win: You love free things, right? Well, we love giving away things! Enter my Giveaway of the Day Sweepstakes today for your chance to win a SanDisk Sansa Fuse Music/Video player and Mobile Ultra MicroSD card. This $160 value 4GB portable music machine features music, video, photo, audio book, FM radio, and built-in voice recorder. What a prize!

Video of the Day: Chess is an exciting battle of wits. But most people don't view it as a spectator sport. This video might change some minds.

Digital Minute, on your radio: October marks a very special anniversary. The first commercial cell phone call was made 25 years ago.

Free Download of the Day: Comparing nearly identical files and folders can be difficult. Minute changes are hard to spot. This program fixes that.

Tip on the site: Wireless networking standards are confusing. The best is 802.11n. It's blazing fast. But do you really need it?


Tomorrow's Cool Site of the Day: What are your children saying?
