2 apps and 5 helpful tips for corralling your out-of-control contacts lists on iOS, OS X

What a fantastic guide, really detailed and to the point. Very helpful.

Download A YouTube Video With Only Three Letters?

The question is asked so many times, so I thought I would start with how to download a video from YouTube, or any of the video clip based websites:

First off you need to know that these techniques are forever changing, so check back here for updates as the software or websites will probably need updating every so often.

For YouTube Videos:

How to download YouTube videos

The best way to download the video’s or MP3 is to simply type three letters “PWN” in front of the YouTube web address as pictured.

So you go to any video on YouTube.Com and make it look like this http://www.pwnyoutube.com/watch?v=fuzLnfpUTh0

It will direct you to the download page, where you can choose which file type to save it as, if you want to save it as an MP3 just for the music you can, the options are so vast.


For Any Other Video Website:


You can also use the same website, and a similar technique by just adding deturl.com in front of any URL to download it’s video.

Example: http://deturl.com/lifehacker.com/5171115/
