Nero 12 Platinum review

Newly released Nero 12 Platinum offers some minor usability improvements over version 11 of the venerable multimedia production and optical burning suite, but for the most part it's a technology upgrade. New to the features party are support for AVCHD 2.0, video stabilization (to calm shaky video) and for larger-capacity (greater than 2.2TB) drives when backing up, commercial Blu-ray playback, ripping of noncommercial Blu-ray discs, and streaming of videos across your home network.

Plex Media Server review

A few years ago, a home media server mainly consisted of an old computer hooked up to a nearby set of speakers and an S-video cable that snaked out to a TV set. If you wanted to watch a movie or listen to music, you navigated with a mouse via the Windows desktop and fired up Media Player, or maybe VLC, put the program into full-screen mode, selected your title from a subdirectory and trundled off.

Nero 11 review

Nero 11 continues the multimedia creation and burning suite's evolution into a friendlier product. Nero already offered a powerful set of programs for creating, editing, transcoding, and burning video and photo slideshow discs, as a well as for editing audio and backing up your data. With this latest release (list price $100 for the standard version; $129 for the Platinum edition; both as of 11/8/11), Nero revamped and improved several of the major components, and linked them via a common media file browser. As a result, the suite feels more like a cohesive product, rather than an ad-hoc collection of components.

Toast 11.0.2 Titanium review

Roxio’s Toast has long been the gold standard for going beyond the types of disc burning capabilities that Apple has built into the Mac OS. In recent years, Toast has expanded beyond that role into media conversion and extraction.

PowerAMP for Android review

PowerAMP is a slick-looking music player that is trying to corner the audiophile market. It has a lot to like about it, and some things to dislike. It looks good, and it has some great features, but it still has work to be done.

Apple iMovie '11 review

The new Movie Trailer feature of iMovie '11 is a great way to demo the program because it packs all the strengths of the video editor into a compact, visually arresting package. But like a real movie, there is more to iMovie '11 than the trailer and thankfully all of the best scenes aren't given away in the teaser.
