Yesterday X-Mirage added the ability to record not only your iPad screen and audio via Airplay, but also your voice narration. I’ve been waiting for someone to implement this for ages.

First, Before we get to the details, here’s a little video I made to demonstrate how good the result is. I’m a fan of iPad screencasting apps like Educreations, Collaaj and Explain Everything, but the limitation on all these apps is that they can only record within the app itself, due to Apple’s sandboxing policy. In other words you can’t use Explain Everything to make a video tutorial about how to change settings in the Settings app, or how to create an eBook in Book Creator or how to write a formula in Numbers or Excel. X-Mirage is not the first computer application to allow video mirroring from an iOS device. X-Mirage is remarkably simple to use. To start recording, click the (quite obvious) red ‘Record’ button at the right edge of the window.

PS. How to Record a Video of Your iPhone or iPad’s Screen From Your Mac. If you have an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch and a Mac, you can now record a video of your device’s screen thanks to a new feature in Mac OS X Yosemite. Android users can also record an Android device’s screen. This feature was designed for app developers, but it can be used by anyone else. Record a tutorial and upload it to YouTube, or capture a video of your mobile gaming prowess and share it with your friends. What You’ll Need This is a simple process, but there are a few requirements.

An iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch running iOS 8 or a newer version of iOS.A Mac running Mac OS X Yosemite — it’s a free upgrade from the Mac App Store. Connect Your iPhone or iPad to Your Mac First, connect your iPhone or iPad to your Mac as normal. Unlock your iPhone or iPad and open iTunes on your Mac to ensure your Mac can see your iOS device.

I’ve been fortunate enough to meet with some outstanding first-time entrepreneurs on a few different days during this week. In almost every case I can really feel the passion and determination they have, and I know that if they will just continue there is every chance that eventually they will be very successful. One interesting topic which came up on a couple of different occasions was timing of raising funding as a first time founder.

I’ve had entrepreneurs often talk to me with just an idea or a very early prototype with no traction and tell me that they want to raise funding. We closed our $450K seed round for Buffer at the end of last year, and joining the dots looking back I can see that a number of things came together which enabled us to raise the round. Times during a startup at which you can raise funding What I’ve learned from talking with some very experienced and highly respected successful serial entrepreneurs is that there are only really two good times to raise funding.

An Airbnb for student notes? Cengage creates digital marketplace for classroom study guides. What would college students pay to get their hands on the notes of straight-A classmates? Boston textbook publisher Cengage Learning aims to find out by launching an online marketplace where students can sell lecture notes, exam study guides, and even video tutorials to their peers. Continue reading below Billed by Cengage as “the Airbnb of education,” the marketplace is the product of a new partnership between a traditional publisher trying to reinvent itself and a Boston technology startup called Flashnotes, which already has raised more than $6 million in venture funding for its Web business that allows students at more than 900 universities to buy and sell study materials.

“Flashnotes popped up in our research as we were thinking about new digital offerings, and we found thousands of students using the site,” said Cengage chief executive Michael Hansen. Yet note-taking for profit has many in academia worried about blurring the line between collaborating and cheating. Home. Unique content - Textbroker.com. Principles & Practices.

One of The Guardian Top 100 Creative Professionals in the UK 2013 I self-published my first non-fiction book in 2008 and made a lot of mistakes along the way. As I become more confident in my writing, I decided to revisit my dream of writing fiction. I’m married and live with my husband in South London, England. Pinterest/JFPenn. The Frugal Book Promoter, by Carolyn Howard-Johnson. Carolyn Howard-Johnson is my unofficial writing mentor. I write ‘unofficial’ because I basically adopted her and her work as my go-to guides for improving and promoting my writing.

Our paths crossed when we were both writing for MyShelf.com, a long-standing book review website. Carolyn advocates for writers, particularly in helping them maneuver through the publishing and marketing world. She opened my eyes to viewing my writing as a business. She’s also on my short list of authors whose books I buy as soon as they’re published.

I always know I’ll learn something from her. In case you don’t know her name, Carolyn has an exemplary career spanning journalism, publishing, marketing, retail and teaching. I’ve recommended Carolyn’s books to many writer and author friends over the years. The book is jammed packed with the how-to’s on book promotion. While I don’t have a book yet published, I’ve gain a lot of insight on publishing and marketing. This second edition is over 400 pages.
