ZoomIt v1.8

ZoomIt v1.8

ZoomIt is screen zoom and annotation tool for technical
presentations that include application demonstrations. ZoomIt runs
unobtrusively in the tray and activates with customizable hotkeys to
zoom in on an area of the screen, move around while zoomed, and draw on
the zoomed image. I wrote ZoomIt to fit my specific needs and use it in
all my presentations.

ZoomIt works on all versions of Windows and you can use pen input for ZoomIt drawing on tablet PCs.
Using the Windows key+U shortcut which launches the Windows accessibility interface is also another way to make your desktop easier to use if you are hard of hearing or of bad eyesight.

You may have seen that a new site launched last week called Skewz, which is an interactive site that allows users to submit political stories from mainstream media and online blogs, discuss and rate them (i.e. “Skew”) according to left or right angle. The innovative site sorts and categorizes news to its degree of liberal or conservative slant, using user feedback.
“Skewz is definitely worth checking out. Part of the user experience is to report your own particular point of view… The result is a digg-like experience with a richer set of features (digg has, essentially, a single variable whereas Skews has at least two depending on how you count them).”
