In past we have covered many different tools Like Video2Mp3, Zamzar etc which can help users convert different YouTube videos into mp3 files and download to your PC. Today, we are going to share another useful online tool, ConvertMeMp3. But before we proceed, you may want to check out the following;
ConvertMeMp3 is a useful online YouTube to Mp3 converter. Users can easily convert and download different YouTube videos in few simple clicks. The best thing about this service is that it does not require any registration or signup. All you need to do is enter the URL of the video you want to convert, select the quality of output file and click Create Mp3 File. But take note that the conversion time depends on the length of the video. Converting a video of 10 minutes will obviously take more time than a video of 2-3 minutes.
Once the file is converted, ConvertMeMp3 will give you the download link to the converted audio file. I have tried many different tools to convert YouTube videos into Mp3 format but this tool is one of the best I have used so far.
If you are looking for a simple and easy way to convert YouTube videos, you must give ConvertMeMp3 a try.
Shocking isn’t it? According to a report from Financial Times, it’s being stated that Apple has surpassed the United States government in terms of capital. Apple Inc. is now officially more richer than the US government, having more reserves in the bank, at least $2 billion more.
The US government is the most powerful government in the world and yet Apple has managed to cash in more green. The main reason is the debt crisis that United states is facing at the moment, you know, recession and stuff. According to the report;
Steve Jobs is now more liquid than Uncle Sam. While it’s highly unlikely that President Barack Obama is looking to ask the founder and chief executive of Apple Inc. for a loan, it became a fact as of Thursday afternoon — the world’s largest technology company now has more cash on hand than the most powerful democracy on Earth has spending room. As Republicans and Democrats continue to work towards a compromise to the country’s debt ceiling crisis, the U.S. Treasury Department said on Thursday that Washington now has a total operating balance of only US$73.768-billion.
See what I mean? The US Treasury Department only has a operating balance of $73.768 billion, while Apple.Inc has $75.876 billion in earnings. Although, it’s not really a good idea to compare them since they’re two completely different areas. Apple started making all the profits since the launch of the iPhone in 2007 and since they’ve been on the rise. Even the MacBooks, iMacs, iPods and iPads have been selling like hot cakes and making more and more greenery around and inside Apple Inc. It’s still growing and has about 28% share in the U.S smartphone market and is the second largest company in the world.
All I have to say is, I’m proud to be an Apple user.What about you?
A lot of big companies and other businesses alike, are turning to Social media advertising, mainly through Facebook pages. Even Movie Studios are letting people watch movies on Facebook on the basis of rent. Today, the stupidly hilarious live-action series called Jackass has officially begun renting their movies on Facebook. You can now head over to their page and watch any of the 5 parts of the series.
Jackass is an adult, graphic, stupidly funny movie featuring a group of guys who dare to do stupid and sometimes dangerous things to make you laugh, puke or die. Well, not die, but you’ll know what I mean if you’ve seen any of the 5 parts. There is Jackass, Jackass 2, Jackass 2.5, Jackass 3D and Jackass 3.5. You can watch all of them right from Facebook with the help of your credits, since the movies don’t come free.
That’s not it!! They’ve also added this new Jackass ClipApp that lets you share your own Jackass experiences based on the movies. Get your cameras ready and shoot a really disgusting and funny movie. Jackass is a title watched by a millions of teenagers(mostly) so I think people are really going to enjoy watching while chatting with a friend on Facebook.
We all love the idea of a Time machine and we’d all love to go back in time just for the sake of it. Unfortunately, it’s quite impossible as Scientist say. However, if you have an iPhone or iPad, then things can really get magical.
Video Time Machine is an iOS application that will literally take you back in time, till the year 1860 that is and show you videos from way back. The best part is that you don’t need to have a Hot-tub or the De Lorean DMC-12 from Back to the Future. You just need an Apple iPad and some internet.
The app consists of over 4,000 videos on various topics such as Music, TV, NEWS, Sports, Games, Television, Ads etc. You can browse between all the years and watch various videos right from the app. It’s just like going back in time, to a year before you even existed and watch an interview or a TV ad. It’s truly magical and exciting.
You can also use the Random button to randomly browse through all those years and the app will automatically play some random video from a random year. I used random too many times, that’s also magical I suppose or downright stupid. Anyways, the developers of this app also happened to come across the idea for it while drinking beer and eating Pizza.
I’d be more than happy to meet these guys, way to go developers of Video Time Machine. They’re still working on the app and adding all the more videos that they can get a hold on. You can also share the video that you’re watching on Facebook and Twitter right from the app.
You can download Video Time Machine from the App store for only $0.99. I think it’s worth it, because you won’t find a better organized history time travel based application or video collection anywhere else.
Since Facebook announced their new Video Chat feature, they’ve added other new features as well. Some of them, we all don’t like and dearly wish that Facebook would hit the CTRL+Z button on them. The new chat sidebar that they rolled out recently is certainly a big let down. It’s designed to show the friends that you talk to all the time on the top, even if they aren’t online. And to search if someone is online, you’ll have to perform a manual search.
So, if you, like me, don’t like the new Chat sidebar and want that old chat back, then you should follow this tutorial below to get it back. This tutorial requires you to install a certain extension to get the old Facebook chat back. It’s fairly simple and involves a greasemonkey usercript that removes the new chat sidebar and reverts to the older chat that we all love.
How to get the old chat back on Facebook
If you’re using Chrome, then you don’t have to install Greasemonkey, but if you’re on Firefox then go here to install it.
Visit this link here to install the userscript known as Facebook Sidebar Chat Reversion on either Chrome or Firefox.
Once it’s installed, just visit Facebook and you should have your old Chat back.
There’s also another Google chrome extension that will bring the old Facebook chat back and also add some new smileys. You can install this on your Chrome browser and enjoy the old chat. You can download FB Cool Options extension from the Chrome web store.
I’m pretty sure that once you see the familiar old Facebook chat, a wide smile will immediately occur on your face. Does anyone really like the new Chat Sidebar?

Loads of Twitter services and platforms have been developed in recent times that allow users to make their tweets integrated with multimedia contents or other stuff. Those who are avid users of Twitter know that every character we enter on Twitter counts a lot because Twitter allow us to use only 140 characters.
Though there are some services that allow users to enter considerably longer tweets but they have their own drawbacks, like most of them include a link to your tweet. So keeping these restrictions in view, I guess using characters and special symbols is a very good option. So let’s have a look at it:
Twitter Symbols Web App Features
The apps functioning is pretty simple, it enables you to enter characters and symbols in your tweets via their integrated platform. The app enables you to enter varying kind of symbols like stars, zodiac symbols, mathematics symbols and chess characters. Each of the added symbols is counted as a single character, you just need to click on the symbol and it will be automatically entered in your tweet.
What I like the most about this app is that no links are incorporated in the tweets no matter how many characters you enter. Plus the app also has a considerably good symbol and characters archive and you can decorate your tweets in many ways using it. Twitter Symbolsapp is a must use for Twitter freaks and I can bet that you are going to like it.
Tweet with Symbols and Special Characters: Twitter Symbols App
Certain apps have certain limitations, for example, by default WhatsApp doesn’t work on an iPad or iPad 2. WhatsApp is a cross-platform messenger through which you can text, send pictures and videos over the internet. It’s not however, a free application and isn’t available for the Apple iPad either. Now though, there’s a Cydia tweak that will make it work on the iPad.
WhatsPad is a Cydia app that can be used to make WhatsApp messenger work just as it does on an iPhone and you’ll be able to send and receive data, texts etc. Since, WhatsApp is not natively available for the iPad, you’ll have to download it using iTunes and then use iPhone Configuration Utility to install it on the iPad.
How-to Install WhatsApp on iPad
Download iPhone Configuration Utility from here(Mac and PC).
Purchase and download WhatsApp from iTunes, then open the configuration utility. You will see your iPad listed on the left-hand side. Select your iPad, then look for the Applications tab on the right hand side and click on Add. Point it to your WhatsApp ipa file that you just downloaded, usually located in iTunes Media>Mobile Applications on your hard drive. Once you find it, scroll down in the Configuration tool and you should see a Install button. Click on it and WhatsApp will start installing on your iPad.
After installation, open Cydia and look for WhatsPad in the Big Boss repository. If you don’t find it, hit refresh or reload Cydia. Install WhatsPad, a small file, and then open WhatsApp. Voila!! It’s running.
You’ll have to activate WhatsApp before you start using it, so remember to use a number that works because the activation code will be sent to you via SMS. That’s all there is!! Since the app is designed for iPhone and iPod Touch, you could use FullForce Cydia app to force it to utilize all the pixels on your iPad screen. This will work on both iPad and iPad 2 models and WhatsPad is a free app.
Last week, a certain American blogger ended up somewhere in China and came across an Apple Store. Baffled with finding an Apple Store in such a location, the blogger entered the store to find out a little more about an Apple product. But, as she looked around a little more closely at the products, something dawned on her. We did tell you about the super FAKE Apple Store that was discovered in China last week and now there’s a complete video of the inside of the store.
Things like this create a lot of buzz, specially if they are about fake Apple Stores. Faking a complete store requires lot of guts and brain power, I truly respect this guy, the owner or the designer. If you’ve checked out the photos of the fake store then you’d probably know what I’m talking about. In this video, rather a News Report, the employees are being interviewed and asked about the store. According to the report, this store gets a lot of customers and some of them don’t even realize that the products being sold there are fake.
There aren’t many Apple Stores in China, but there are a lot of people over there, who don’t have iPhones and are sad. The owner however, still wants to convince everyone that the products sold here are real and not fakes. He also stated that he has applied to get Authorization from Apple to run a real Apple Store.
