How many times have you watched a video on YouTube or another video site and wished you could save a video to watch at a later time? This is where ClipGrab could help you out, as it lets you download streaming videos from a wide range of sites including Vimeo, YouTube and Dailymotion, converting to key formats in the process. One of the highlights of ClipGrab is the integrated search feature. While this might seem like quite a minor thing, it's something that other similar tools overlook, which is a shame as it provides such a quick and easy way to find a video you want to download without having to switch to your browser. Another neat touch particularly if you are planning to download a lot of videos is clipboard monitoring. If you copy a video link to the clipboard, ClipGrab can automatically download the associated video, saving you the hassle of manually switching to the program time and time again.

" According to Registria, product registration has been the main vehicle for durable consumer brands to identify and understand their consumers. However, the traditional process of filling out paper or online registration information can be a barrier. In the study, 68% of all consumers say they never register their products, and of those: - 38% intend to, but forget or just never get around to it - 16% say it's a hassle, and - 12% don't want to share their personal information. 56% of consumers say that receiving warranty and service plan information is the most important reason to register a product, while 25% cite safety and recall notifications as the most important reasons to register. These priorities shift among younger consumers aged 18-34, who think it is more important to register products in order to be notified of deals on accessories and complementary products.

All sales are final." The site was updated over the weekend and no longer carries this line. The company denied that there had been any changes in the rules. "Flipkart's return policy is the most customer-friendly across the industry," a spokesperson said. "Customers can request for instant refunds on about two-thirds of the 1,800 categories on Flipkart, directly through the self-service option. It is hassle-free, seamless and quick, and millions of customers have benefitted from it. The policy was last changed over a year ago. In the interest of our customers, the text of the policy has been simplified and made more explicit for easy reference." Incidentally, an ET correspondent had last week tried to return a mobile case because it didn't match the image on the website. However, the return option wasn't available at the time, only replacement could be chosen.

An error explained that the site needed to use ActiveX controls, and to fix this we had to add its domain to IE's Trusted Sites. Just in case this wasn't bad enough, we were told to disable the default Internet Explorer require HTTPS... setting for Trusted Sites, because the creator site was HTTP only. We continued using Netfirms with IE, clicked a WordPress icon and were sent to the marketing-heavy Mojo Marketplace site, where it asked us to choose the domain for installation. Except we couldn't, as the domain list was empty. We switched back to Chrome and then it worked correctly. It's not all bad news. We're not fans of Mojo Marketplace as it's more interested in selling you stuff than anything else, but there's nothing wrong with the basic installer technology, and it'll equip your site with WordPress or one of many other apps with minimal hassle.

The charges were ultimately reversed, and SeedInvest and DSTLD apologized for the glitch. Investors, Lynn says, were understanding and many came back to invest. But it is a hassle, particularly if someone wants to make a small investment. [Image: Hilch/iStock, ekmelica/iStock (pattern)] DSTLD has also attracted interest from international investors, especially Canadians, he says. However, as of now, they can only invest $10,000 or more. For DSTLD, which tries to be millennial-friendly and wants to make itself accessible to all its consumers, thats a tough sell. Were trying to get that dollar amount lowered. But to pay $35 on a wire transfer for $500 doesnt make sense. So we have to make it more cost-effective for smaller investors, he says. While DSTLD and Ellison Eyewear are both consumer-facing companies, Rabble , a new equity crowdfunding platform, is focusing on solely impact: Any company with a social or environmental mission and a financial return will be eligible to raise money on their site.

This organises hundreds of apps into multiple categories, displays overviews, feature lists and screenshots, links to a demo, and user reviews. Once you've found what you need, Softaculous enables installing it with a minimum of hassle. It's not quite one-click you should enter a strong password, a blog title and a few other basic details but there are no database or other complications and even hosting newbies will get it done in a couple of minutes. If a simple one-page site is enough for now, cPanel's Site Publisher handles the basics. It's very limited, offering just 12 templates and mostly all you do is customise your contact data and an image but it'll give you a quick and easy placeholder until you can come up with something else. WHUK doesn't include its own site builder with standard shared hosting plans.

Audiophiles prefer belt drive turntables because they produce less audible vibrations, but are also more of a hassle as some turntables require you to reposition the belt when switching speeds. Neither is technology is necessarily better than the other, as different implementations make a big difference.

Connecting speakers and headphones Connecting your turntable to use with speakers or headphones is fairly straightforward. If you have a turntable with a built in preamp, you simply need to connect it to a receiver's input via the red and white RCA connectors. If you've chosen a turntable without a preamp, you'll need to either buy a receiver with a phono preamp or purchase a separate phono preamp.

The autofocus too is a decent improvement over the T6i / 750D, with a solid 45-point AF system that's backed up by excellent live view AF. The newly designed graphical interface will certainly make the camera even more appealing to new users combined with the logical control layout and polished touchscreen it makes for a hassle-free shooting experience. It's disappointing not to see 4K video capture here though, especially as mirrorless rivals are now offering it, while perhaps the biggest disappointment is the camera's finish. While it's similar to previous models, the onslaught of mirrorless models that feel that much nicer in the hand, and the relatively high launch price, exacerbate this shortcoming. If you can get over these issues though, and if you're looking for a well-rounded and easy to use camera with which to take your first steps in the world of DSLR photography, the EOS Rebel T7i / EOS 800D is certainly worth a look.

If you don't have the time to learn a new language, you can typically depend on apps to help bridge a communication gap. For next level intra-language conversations in real-time, though, you might need some extra translation power. Travis , a remote control-like gadget that's small enough to fit in your pocket, might be able to talk to almost anyone you encounter on your travels using AI. Its goal is to be able to communicate face-to-face with anyone at the touch of a button, since the device can auto-recognize speech to kick-start a conversation. Travis' makers claim it can translate 80 languages in real time when it's online, ranging from Afrikaans to Welsh. The device can also access 20 more commonly spoken languages in offline mode, so travel in areas without clear network connection is less of a hassle. Read more...

Shortly after it was teased just a few days ago, Google is rolling out a sorely-needed feature for the Google Home smart speaker: multiple user support. Arriving today in the US and coming to the UK "in the coming months," Google Home will now support up to six different users. The speaker will track each user's personal itinerary, music playlists, commute, and even flight details . Previously, the Google Assistant-backed speaker could only support one user at a time, making it a hassle to personalize the experience without messing up another person's settings. The real kicker isn't just that Google Home can now keep tabs on more than one person, but that it can do so instantly by recognizing individual voices. When setting up multiple users on Google Home, the most recent version of the Google Home app will ask to hear you say "OK Google" and "Hey Google" a few times when linking your account to the smart speaker.

For all women using birth control , the effectiveness of various methods is a key factor in the decision-making process. Beyond that, however, the choice gets personal. Some women focus on how much hassle is required to maintain consistent protection, others want to avoid synthetic hormones, others still want something they can use in the moment, as opposed to every day. Theres no one form of birth control thats right for everyone, but increasingly, women are choosing so-called long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARC) like the IUD and the implantboth of which are among the most effective birth control options out there. According to the electronic health record company AthenaHealth, the number of women who visited their doctor to discuss IUDs rose nearly 19% since the 2016 election something experts attribute to patient fears that birth control may no longer be covered by insurance if President Trump succeeded in repealing Obamacare.

Everything happens inside the microcontroller. The one hurdle, then, is getting Forth onto the chip. In the old days, this used to be done by toggling in the bytes manually, and Forth is actually small enough that literally bootstrapping it this way is possible. But you already bought that chip programmer, right? [Texane]'s ST utilities are the easiest way to get Forth onto your chip. Download them from GitHub , and build it yourself or try your luck with your distro's package manager. (Windows folks, you're not left out either . Although that binary hasn't seen updates in a while, it'll do.) Connect up the programming wires in the obvious fashion, and issue the magic commands st-flash erase and st-flash write mecrisp-stellaris-hackaday-edition.bin 0x8000000 . In five seconds, you'll be ready to rumble. GND GND SWCLK CLK SWSIO DIO Having to buy a programmer is a hassle if you don't have one, but it will make the rest of your life easier, and getting one is as simple as clicking pay and waiting.
