If you’ve ever tried to record your computer screen for a YouTube video, chances are you’ve heard of Camtasia Studio. TechSmith’s Camtasia has been a leader in screen capture software for almost 10 years. They have a brand new release: Camtasia 8, which is now available to buy at SoftwareMedia.com.
Yesterday, Microsoft unveiled their upcoming line of tablets for Windows 8 this fall. The word surface will, no doubt, become synonymous with Microsoft’s new series of consumer tablets.
The Microsoft Surface tablets come in two flavors: Windows RT and Windows 8 Pro. As tech die-hards know, Windows RT is the version of Windows 8 designed for ARM processors.

Everyone is itching for any information they can get on the upcoming Adobe Creative Suite 6 release which is slated for sometime in the first half of this year.
