Debug and fine-tune CSS like never before!

Xyle scope offers new ways of debugging, fine-tuning, and discovering Cascading Style Sheets. It works like a web browser and is just as easy to use. Simply enter a URL and discover all the HTML and CSS files that make up the design of the given page.

Clicking on an element of a web page suffices to display its formatting box (box model) and the precise HTML and CSS code that is responsible for its appearance. You can immediately start changing the CSS code. The effects of your changes will be visible instantly without saving the CSS or refreshing the page.

And since Xyle scope is also a web browser it doesn’t just work for your own sites…

To learn more about the many features of Xyle scope and to sign up for Cultured Code’s newsletter to get all the latest information on their upcoming app “Things”, visit www.culturedcode.com.

TubeSock: YouTube on Your iPod

Normally: $15.00

ZOT Price: $9.00

Try Now  

Save YouTube Videos!

TubeSock 2.0 downloads YouTube videos from the web and saves them to your video iPod, Mac, or PlayStation Portable. TubeSock knows how to convert the video using the codecs and bitrates best for each device. It can even add the video to iTunes for you.

Supports Macs and Windows!

Don’t be a victim of the platform wars! TubeSock runs natively on both Mac OS X and Windows XP.

Preview Playback

TubeSock can play back YouTube videos directly. Just copy & paste the YouTube URL, and TubeSock will play the video for you. Click “Save” to save the video to your computer or iPod.

Convert Videos to iPod or PSP

TubeSock converts YouTube’s native FLV file format into H.264, MP4, or MP3 files. It automatically determines the appropriate file format, bitrate, and naming convention for the selected target device.

TubeSock's conversion queue

New in Two: Conversion Queue

TubeSock 2.0 sports a built-in conversion queue. Just keep adding URLs and clicking Save. You can load up a long list of videos, put it in the background, and let it run.

New: DailyMotion and Porkolt!

TubeSock 2.0 supports downloading videos from DailyMotion and Porkolt in addition to YouTube. Since DailyMotion supports different file types, downloads are automatically grabbed in the highest quality format available.

TubeSock supports DailyMotion

Works with Audio-only iPods, Mini, and Nano

Don’t have a video iPod? That’s OK, we don’t either. For luddites like us, TubeSock can grab just the audio portion of a track and add it to iTunes, too. Find your favorite tracks, outtakes, and live recordings on YouTube, then click “Save” to copy them to your iPod. YouTube already uses MP3 for audio, so the conversion is quick and there’s no loss of audio fidelity.

Integrated with Safari and Firefox

TubeSock can install a bookmark script for your favorite web browser. When you browse to a YouTube video you like, simply click the bookmark button. The video will instantly appear in TubeSock.

Integrates with Safari and Firefox

Works with FrontRow

Don’t have an iPod at all? TubeSock can save videos into your Mac’s Movies folder, so that they can be played full-screen with FrontRow and your Apple Remote.

Play videos using FrontRow

Trial Version

TubeSock costs $15 and is on sale today only for $9. Until you register, TubeSock will convert only the first 30 seconds of a video.

Free updates for registered users! Future releases of TubeSock will support additional web-based video services, such as Google Video, Porkolt, and by popular request, Pornotube.

CDRevolution is a CD copying and archiving utility, designed for accuracy and ease of use.

Better Audio Copying

CDSome burning software will cut corners when it comes to making copies of original audio CDs. Not so CDRevolution. For instance, CDRevolution keeps the gaps between the tracks the same size as the original – just as the artist intended.

Copying an original with CD Text? No problem, CDRevolution will preserve this too. And for those with CD Text compatible equipment – CDRevolution lets you add CD Text to your new copy; even if the original does not have any.

Full Fidelity, Compact Audio Images

CDRevolution Image IconWant to backup your audio CD collection to hard-disk for safe keeping? Using CDRevolution’s image file format you can archive your audio CDs as full fidelity image files in a single convenient document package. No need to mess about with separate cue sheets and binary files.

Inside the document package each track is stored as a separate music file compressed using Apple’s Lossless Audio Codec for reduced image size without losing quality.

Searching with Spotlight

Magnifying glassSearching for the image file of a particular album is easy using Spotlight. The built-in Spotlight importer allows you to search amongst the album title, the title of any tack, the artist and other information about the album to quickly locate the image file you want.

Integrate with iTunes

Musical NotesCDRevolution audio images can be added to iTunes and treated like a regular album; with the added advantage that an accurate copy of the original can be burned whenever you need it.

Burn Data CDs and Other Image Formats

CD and Image IconStandard data CDs are copied with 1:1 accuracy and can be backed-up to an image file. CDRevolution can also burn from standard image files such as DMG, ISO, CDR and even Cue Sheets from other platforms.

User Reviews:

“This application does exactly what it says it does, which is exactly what I was looking for: To make perfect backup copies of my audio CDs. (It also does data.) … So, skip Toast and save yourself $60-$80 if all you were looking to do was copy CDs.” – Scott Stilson (via VersionTracker)

“Thanks for this app – I love it. Exactly what I want to dupe music CDs. Responsive developer, too … I’d say if you want ease of use with perfect audio fidelity you can skip complex apps, and just rip and burn with ease using CDRevolution.” – Chizzola (via VersionTracker)

“Works perfectly to burn WAV files ripped with EAC for Windows.
I simply dragged the cue file in the window and bam it burned a perfect audio CD.” – Dan (via email)

System Requirements:

  • Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) or later (Universal Binary)

ATTENTION WEBMASTERS: Monitor websites and servers for changes or failures



“…a feature-rich tool that’s ideal for Webmasters who need to monitor a variety of Internet services.”
– Matt Vance, Macworld

Dejal Simon is the essential site monitoring tool for Mac OS X. It checks servers for changes or failures, and notifies you via e-mail, sound, speech, or other means. You can use it to track updated sites, and to alert you when an important server goes down or recovers. Developed in Cocoa, it is a native Mac OS X application with an intuitive and attractive interface.

Simon is very versatile. It can be used to monitor your own website and servers, track posts and new comments on your or friends’ blogs, check for web mail, get notifications of updates to favorite news and entertainment websites, keep an eye on auctions, and many other uses.

“Simon constantly monitors the content of critical pages and shows me the changes that have been made. Quality control is very important to me: usability, reliability, design, that’s what people pay me for! In Simon I also find those qualities — and this feels good to me. … Simon adds another reliable and highly customizable layer of control and feedback! I also appreciate the fast response when contacting Dejal. The developer knows what he’s talking about!”

- Holger Hubbs, web/print/information design, unimpossible.net

Central to Simon is the Monitor window. It enables you to see at a glance the current status of all of your monitored websites, servers, and applications. In addition to a colorful status icon and up-time percentage, the tests table displays how long ago the last change and failure occurred, and when the next check will occur. But that’s not all. This window also displays further statistics about the tests, and tables listing recent checks (including the check duration and a bar chart), changes (including the text that changed), failures (including the error description), and notifications (that can occur for changes, failures, and recoveries).

“I searched high and low for a product to monitor my server, and Simon was the only product that worked flawlessly. Simon is also great at monitoring changes on other sites; handy if you want to be the first to see new content on seldom updated pages.”

- Gord Lacey, Owner, TVShowsOnDVD.com

For more information and screenshots, please visit the Dejal Simon website.

This ZOT offer is for the BASIC VERSION of Simon only. If you have greater needs, please consider the Standard or Enterprise versions.
