Ellen asks, “How do I download videos from my iPhone?”

Ellen writes, How do I download videos from my iPhone to my PC? When I try to email them to myself it shrinks the video. I’ve been told to just connect my phone to my computer and download them that way, but how? Here’s what you need to do Ellen.

Is there someone who can walk me through the process and give me a better understanding about podcasts, and blogging in general? I have a “computer guy” but he doesn’t know anything about…

I mean, those are two of the most boring words in the English language: thermostat and programmable. Thermostats are something that people use because they have to, not because they want to. They are boring gray boxes that go on the wall somewhere in your house. And, only nerds like to program stuff. I mean who enjoyed programming the time on their VCR? What should be the most boring thing in my house is actually my favorite device in my house. Okay,…
