If we told you that Tomatosoft's Free Ico Converter converts image files like JPEGs into ICO files, would you think that was cool? Suppose we said Free Ico Converter lets you convert images into an icon you can use in Windows? We thought that would get your attention! ICO is the Windows icon file format. Free Ico Converter converts JPEGs, GIFs, PNGs, or BMPs that are 256x256 pixels or smaller into ICOs. It doesn't install new icons in Windows; rather it creates the image files you need to replace existing icons or use in new applications. We ran … Read more
All Converters is a free app that quickly converts weight, temperature, currency, data storage, and more with only a few clicks. Unfortunately, this free ad-supported app also has some of the most irritating advertising out there, in a way that makes the app extremely difficult to use cleanly.
While there are no instructions for "All Converters," this basic conversion app is easy to use. The app converts between two different types of measurement systems. For example, you can convert feet to meters, bytes to terabytes, liters to pints, and even dollars to pesos, all by selecting what you … Read more
DivX isn't just a powerful video converter, but a stylish universal video player as well. It can convert and play just about any video file you want and gives you plenty of advanced control over your product. Though some of its features are locked behind a paywall, it is worthy enough to be your sole conversion program.
In addition to a custom browser toolbar, this program's installation has a search page and home page takeover attached to the download. It tries to force you to accept one or the other, which is annoying. The program includes a video … Read more
Vclip Converter claims to be the fastest, easiest, and most reliable freeware YouTube downloader. We didn't time it against the competition, but Vclip Converter proved both fast and easy enough to make it a moot point. You can choose a conversion profile specifically designed for your device (iOS or Android) or create and save your own preferences and enable one-click downloading to make the job even faster and easier. Vclip Converter runs in Windows XP to 8; we tried in in 64-bit Win7 HP.
Vclip Converter's user interface is a plain dialog with a list view and a &… Read more

Convertible laptops? Pricey. Haswell laptops? Super-pricey. Lenovo? Didn't get the memo.
For a limited time, and while supplies last, Lenovo is offering the Flex 14 convertible Haswell laptop for $575.28 shipped (plus sales tax where applicable) when you activate coupon code DAILYDEAL101 at checkout. (It's actually already there; all you have to do is click Activate.) Regular price: $799.
The Flex 14 is Lenovo's ideological successor to the Yoga, though ironically it's not quite as flexible as the latter. Although the screen can pivot past where a typical laptop's stops, it stops at 300 … Read more

We especially like the ability to combine multiple videos into one … Read more
Windows RT: ugh, right?
It kind of depends. Windows RT on a laptop or tablet priced at $650 is definitely worthy of groans, but a hybrid priced at $380? That's something altogether different.
For a limited time, and while supplies last, Best Buy has the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11.6-inch convertible laptop for $379.99 shipped, plus sales tax where applicable.
As you may recall, the Yoga made waves earlier this year as one of the first Windows RT hybrid systems, a laptop-style machine with a hinged touch-screen that can twist into a variety of configurations (hence the "… Read more
FLAC audio files sound great, but not every app or device supports FLAC and they take up a lot of storage space. Sometimes, you just want the convenience of MP3s, which are supported by many more apps and devices, including mobile phones and tablets. Mobile devices are often short on space, so even if they support FLAC, using MP3 files make a lot of sense.
Ramka's Media Buddy offers several advantages over freeware media converters, especially if your PC has a CUDA-capable NVIDIA graphics card. Media Buddy can utilize your GPU's processing power for super-fast file conversion, especially with large files and high-quality formats. But ATi isn't left out of the mix, either: Media Buddy is also optimized to take advantage of your ATi card's codes, or your Intel CPU's built-in graphics' processing power. Media Buddy handles a wide range of audio and video formats, including HD formats. It also burns CDs and DVDs. Media Buddy is free to try, … Read more
