MYKitty Cat App
Oct 14, 2009 – NETFilmMusic has released a new application available via iTunes for iPhone and iPod Touch. The MYKitty Cat App allows users to view a super cute selection of cats, listen to them purr, meow, growl, and feel the vibrating simulation of a cat's purr. Purchasers can even add their own cats and kitties by selecting a customized picture from their iPhone. For only 99 cents, MYKitty offers great family entertainment for any animal lover, young and old. Now, even when not with their pets, iPhone users can have the next best thing and take them along with MYKitty!

Scientists continue to demonstrate the unique protective and healing powers of cats. A cat's purr is not just relaxing - investigators have shown that the sound frequencies in the range of a cat's purr can relieve pain, improve bone density and promote healing of muscles. Dr. Elizabeth Von Muggenthaler with the non-profit Fauna Communications Research Institute has hypothesized that its "...possible that evolution has provided the felines of this world with a natural healing mechanism for bones and other organs." Now with the MYKitty Cat App, perhaps these ancient healing powers will also be electronically encapsulated in the palm of your hand.

How To Copy CDs

Copying CDs is something that is very popular now more than ever. When CD burners and duplication was first introduced, people caught on although it wasn't nearly as popular as it is today. These days, millions of people throughout the world copy audio, data, and even video to CDs.

To make a copy of a CD, you'll need a master (original disc) to copy, a blank disk, a CD-RW drive, and the proper software. Most newer computers include either a CD-RW or DVD-RW drive. If your computer is older, you'll need to go out and buy the drive, which doesn't cost much money and is very easy to install.
If you have a DVD-RW drive, you'll be able to copy both CDs and DVDs. The rate of copying will vary, with 4X being the slowest and up to 48X being the fastest. If your drive supports 48X, you can duplicate a CD in a matter of minutes.

Once you have the CD-RW or DVD-RW drive and some blank CD-R media, all you need is the software to duplicate. Nero is among the most popular, as well as Sonic Record Now and Easy CD Creator. There are many different types out there, from those that cost money to the freeware and open source software that doesn't cost anything (beyond your time) to use.

Once you have everything you need, simply run the software and create your disk. You can copy many types of media, including pictures, video, audio and even data from your computer. Depending on what you want to copy, all need to do is select it from the software menu and let it rip.

CD duplication is a lot of fun and easy for everyone to learn as well. You can back up a lot of things or just save pictures of your special memories - the choices are entirely up to you. Peace and catchya soon.

The Pros And Cons Of Drinking A Lot Of Beer

Everybody knows that drinking beer excessively can lead to hangovers, beer guts, multiple teen pregnancies, beauty school, headaches, puking and even more severe health problems. If you drink beer in moderation without getting drunk, you won’t experience any problems with your health - but you won't experience the dopamine-driven euphoric reaction, which has lead to beer's popularity in the first place.

One of the most common things people say about beer, is that it makes you fat, hence the term “beer belly”. As a whole, beer contains little to no fat, however the calories add up fast especially if you've been drinking for years and are therefore a stay-at-home alcoholic ne'er-do-well, which affects the body’s ability to burn fat.

Even though beer can indeed lead to a “beer belly” if you drink too much of it, if you drink in moderation you should be fine. Beer is low in sugar, however, it can affect your blood sugar levels. Beer contains alcohol, which can drop the natural level of sugar in your blood, leading to low energy levels. If you drink too much beer, you’ll get really tired and go right to sleep (pass out). Alcohol in beer will also lower insulin levels as well, which makes it perfect for non-diabetics, as it will reduce the risk of arteriosclerosis.

In the past, research has linked beer with reducing the risk for heart disease. Beer contains no cholesterol, although it does have antioxidant qualities that can reduce LDL oxidation, which may help reduce your risk of heart disease. Beer is also an excellent source of fiber, stemming from the malted barley. Beer can also help to reduce stress, if you drink it in moderation.

To get the health benefits that beer provides, women should drink one beer a day - men can have two. You shouldn’t drink any more than this, as it can lead to health problems, general drunkenness and unpaid child support. Alcohol will thin out your blood, which will protect your heart and reduce the risk of strokes as well.

Research has even shown moderate consumption of alcohol can help with improving your memory as well. Beer is also nutritious, although it can destroy your levels of vitamin C as well. Beer is a great source of fiber, as well as other minerals, such as potassium, magnesium, and several B vitamins such as B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9, and B12. Beer contains high levels of these vitamins, along with other minerals that are actually good for your body. Although it offers plenty of B vitamins and other minerals your body needs, it will also destroy your vitamin C - which is why you never want to drink too much of it.

When it all comes down to it, beer may contain over 95% water, yet it is still a diuretic. Due to the fact that beer contains alcohol, it will always be a diuretic - it makes you pee and pee again. When you drink beer, you should avoid drinking too much and never, ever, drink beer instead of water. Beer can dehydrate your body fairly quickly, which is one of the biggest cons to drinking. Although beer does have several health benefits, drinking too much can easily hinder them. To stay on the safe side and avoid headaches and other health effects of beer, you should always drink responsibly, never drink too much - and always drink a few glasses of water when you are drinking beer.

How to try out for American Idol

Hey Guys! I'm Erika the new NETFilmMusic Blog Girl! Each time I feel like it I'll post my unique perspective on the world. This weeks its tips for auditioning on American Idol!

As you know American Idol is a television program that has singers competing with each other to win the coveted title of American Idol. The show was conceptualized on the lines of Pop Idol from U.K. Even now American Idol is produce by U.K. producers Ken Warwick and Simon Fuller who also produced Pop Idol. The show aims to discover the best young singing talent in the country through a nationwide search for next BIG thing! The search is usually performed in six to seven cities every season. The candidates are filtered into a few hundred from thousands. The contestants are further filtered in Hollywood round and ultimately 24 contestants go to the semifinals of which 12 are boys and 12 are girls. The contestants are further reduced to 12 in the final round. From there on a singer is eliminated from bottom three contestants each week until the last episode when only two singers remain from which the winner and the runner up are selected.

Many teens like you and me dream about getting a break in American Idol and try hard to get there. Some of you fail and some come out with flying colors. But we should realize there can be only one winner at the end the day (me) and everyone performing in the program cannot be an American Idol. Apart from the singing talent contestants also need to have the personality to win the competition (a nice smile doesn't hurt either). In addition to having a beautiful voice you need to have the rhythm and command over different tunes. Knowing the producer's cousin or how to dance along with singing is also a huge advantage over others who can only sing.

If you are planning to audition for American Idol do not forget to read and if possible memorize the information provided on Fox television's Idol website. Frequently asked questions are answered on this website. You can clear many misconceptions you have by reading the information provided. The eligibility criterion to get into the competition is that you should be a citizen or permanent resident of the country and you should be between the ages of 16 and 29.

Some of the previous winners of the American Idol advise to the aspiring contestants to really put everything you can into the song you are singing. You should feel the lyrics when you are singing a song and the expressions should show on your face. Also they advise rehearsing the songs you choose over and over again until you perfect it and sing the same song in front of the judges with full confidence and capture their attention and imagination and leave them wanting to hear more form you. Remember focus you attention on getting though the current round and each time you make it into next round you have an extra chance to show your talent and you are that much closer to the crown.

Also remember you may be asked about your role models. Try to come up with two or three names. And how would you describe them? You should fine tune your verbiage and if possible try to come up with some interesting thoughts to describe those personalities. Also be prepared to tell about yourself concisely. Part of the job is to dress well, get fashionable if possible but never go underdressed. Also be honest, respectful and truthful to the judges. It is also seen that the judges often like contestants who dedicate songs to their friends or family members. Also taking a few voice-training classes greatly increases the chances of making it into American Idol. If one follows the tips discussed above there should be no stopping you in landing on the sets of American Idol and who knows you might be the next American Idol. See you there!

How to Convert from Rhapsody .rax files to iTunes

After banging our collective heads against the wall for several minutes, we discovered that an easy way to covert from the proprietary .rax music files used by Rhapsody/Real Networks is to simply burn the songs to a CD, then import from the CD itself to iTunes, or most other CD Ripping/ Music Services applications.
