Screencast of the Week - introNetworks

Visual Lounge

This week's Screencast of the Week is actually a series of Jing videos (Jingcasts) from introNetworks ! I asked Mark about his experience using Jing and here's what I heard from him: Jing = EASY as anything I have ever used. I love the interface on my Mac and because it is so simple I tend to think in Jingspeak - meaning, can I do something in 1 min on Jing that would take 5 min in an email, answer is usually yes!
