Share Only the Interesting Portions of Youtube Videos

WallStrip inside Scene MakerYou just finished watching an hilarious video clip on Youtube that even your friends would love to see. The video is around ten minutes long but the first four minutes are pretty boring. Infact, the real funny portion lies only between 04:15 and 06:12 (mm:ss) - rest everything may be skipped.

Now the question - how do you share just those "interesting parts" of the video clip without your friend having to wait for the entire clip to load ? After all, most of us don't have the time (or patience) to sit through the entire video waiting for the good parts to come.

Well, Gotuit SceneMaker is just the kind of service we are looking for - no downloads and gets the job done in few clicks. Just type in the Youtube video URL, select the scene that you want to share using Visual Markers or by typing the timeframe manually and save. Think of Gotuit as an intelligent fast-forward button that shows only the desired portion of the Youtube video.

Here's a real example - we wanted to share only that portion of the 3-minute WallStrip clip where Lindsay Campbell talks about the various companies owned by Warren Buffet.

We loaded the Youtube video from Wallstrip inside GoTuit Scenemaker, selected the portion to be shared manually and clipped it. The entire process took not more than a minute and here's the result [original Youtube video shown as well]

Update: If the video is available on Google Videos, just use the URL markers that let you link to specific points inside a video.

How to Download Contacts from Facebook To Outlook Address Book

Facebook users are not too pleased with the "walled garden" approach of Facebook. The reason is simple - while you can easily import your Outlook address book and GMail contacts into Facebook, the reverse path is closed. There's no "official" way to export your Facebook friends email addresses or contact phone numbers out as a CSV file so that you can sync the contacts data with Outlook, GMail or your BlackBerry. Some third-party Facebook hacks like "Facebook Sync" (for Mac) and "Facebook Downloader" (for Windows) did allow you to download your Facebook friends' names, emails, mobile phone number and profile photo to the desktop but they were quickly removed for violation of Facebook Terms of Use. How to Download Contacts from Facebook There are still some options to take Friends data outside the walls of Facebook wall. Facebook offers the Takeout option allowing you to download all Facebook data locally to the disk (include

PhishTank Detects Phishing Websites by Digg Style Voting

OpenDNS, a free service that helps anyone surf the Internet faster with a simple DNS tweak , will announce PhishTank today. PhishTank is a free public database of phishing URLs where anyone can submit their phishes via email or through the website. The submissions are verified by the other community members who then vote for the suspected site. This is such a neat idea as sites can be categorized just based on user feedback without even having to manually verify each and every submission. PhishTank employs the "feedback loop" mechanism where users will be kept updated with the status' of the phish they submit either via email alerts or a personal RSS feed . Naturally, once the PhishTank databases grows, other sites can harness the data using open APIs which will remain free. OpenDNS would also use this data to improve their existing phishing detection algorithms which are already very impressive and efficient. PhishTank | PhishTank Blog [Thanks Allison] Related: Google
