Free CD burning.

I use DeepBurner for backing up data on my hard drive to CD. There’s a freeware version available that allows you to burn CD’s from ISO image filess, create data CD’s and music CD’s. It works really well and I highly recommend it.
Also available is the reasonably priced DeepBurner Pro, which does what the freeware edition does, except it also makes video DVD’s and photo CD’s. At $25, it’s way cheaper than the CD burning software you’ll find at the store.
But if you’re just going to make CD’s from ISO image files, data CD’s and music CD’s, the freeware version of Deep Burner will serve you well.

HD radio?

Speaking of radio, I need to comment on the so-called HD Radio that’s recently entered the radio arena. I’m really not impressed with it. The HD radio tuners are still expensive, and even if I were to get one, there’s not much I’d be able to pick up.
At the web site, I did a search for HD stations in my area and only found 11, none of them offering anything different from what I can pick up with a regular radio.
I may be a radio fanatic, but HD Radio is something I’m not going to discover anytime soon.
