Ad-Hoc, Hotspot, Tethering, three words you keep seeing. Three expressions everyone but you seem to know what is. In one of my more popular articles here on mintywhite we deal with setting up your Windows 7 computer as a Wi-Fi Hotspot. In the comments, one of our readers (who probably felt a bit awkward) asked if a HotSpot is the same thing as an Ad-Hoc. Hmm… Let’s explore this topic. After you read this, you might want to tell me to change the name of the before mentioned article to: “Set Windows 7 as WiFi Ad-Hoc” but I’ll explain a bit further down, why I chose the word HotSpot.

PROS: All-In-One Ripper and Converter. Converts Both DVD and BlueRay to any format needed. Very good Image Crop Functionality. Watermark and image adjustment features.
CONS: Ripping seems a bit slow. Though it runs on 64bit platform, there’s no native 64bit support, which would be preferable. Added Subtitles are embedded into the movie instead of saved as a separate file.

VERDICT: A truly great All in One Product, that deliver what it promise, and then some.

PRICE: $45.49

As long as you only got 3 or 4 combined windows, it’s not a big problem. But lets say you have 10 Word documents combined in a group, just telling them apart from the thumbnail view isn’t quite that easy.
