Kicking Screenshots Up a Notch

Screencasting and screenshots have been kicked up a notch. TechSmith offers us Jing, an extremely useful tool to capture images and videos of your computer screen. Screen captures are uploaded to and can be shared via IM, email and social media. Jing even provides the option of creating an embed code to embed your image or video.
