“The 12 Days AFTER Christmas” Giveaway: Day 12
Thank you, we have a winner â€“ this Contest is closed. Congrats to faithful Macenstein reader Scotty D!
On the Twelfth Day After Christmas, Macenstein gave to you (or, more accurately, gave you a chance to win…) Toast 10 Titanium Pro from Roxio!
That’s right, Roxio released this monster update today at Macworld, and we are you giving you a chance to snag your very own copy of the Pro version of Roxio’s award-winning CD/DVD burning/Media Streaming/video compressing/Tivo-loving/ High-Def supporting/File Syncing/too much more to naming- software!
Toast had already long ago evolved from a mere CD/DVD burning application, but version 10 has so many cool new features that you may find it replaces many of your existing media applications. In fact, there’s so much cool stuff in Toast 10, even if you never burn a single disc you’re still going to want to pick it up! You can check out the full list of features here, but some of the cooler new features in version 10 are:
AVCHDâ„¢ Archive â€“ Backup original video from AVCHD camcorders direct to DVD or BD media in one easy step.
Mac2TiVo â€“ Send standard definition and HD video from your Mac to your TiVo DVR for viewing on your TV.
Web Video To Go â€“ Save Web video from your favorite video sharing sites to view offline, burn or convert it for viewing on portable players such as an iPod or iPhone.
On-the-go Entertainment â€“ Stream and watch television programs, such as EyeTV recordings and TiVoToGo transfers on your iPhone or iPod touch over Wi-Fi with the new iPhone native application StreamerÂ®.
Portable Audiobooks â€“ Convert audiobook CDs into single audiobook files for playback on your iPod or other portable playerâ€“ complete with individual chapters â€“ no more individual audiobook chapter files scattered throughout your iTunes library or iPod.
Music Builder â€“ Expand your audio library by capturing streaming audio. Toast now automatically splits captured songs into tracks, tags them with title and artist information, and then sends them to iTunes.
Folder Sync â€“ Synchronize folders bi-directionally between multiple computers, network volumes or external hard disks.
Stunning DVDs â€“ Create personalized DVDs with any of the over 20 new DVD and Blu-ray Disc menu stylesâ€”available in both full screen and high-definition widescreen versions.

HD/BD Plug-In â€“ Author HD video content on to standard DVDs and Blu-ray Discs. Take high-def (HD) video footage from AVCHDâ„¢ camcorders, TiVoÂ® and EyeTV and create Blu-ray Discs or even standard DVDs with HD content that can be played on any standard Blu-ray set top box or PlayStationÂ® 3 game console.
SmartSound Sonicfireâ„¢ Pro â€“ Orchestrate the perfect sound track to accompany videos and slideshows. Use Sonicfire Proâ€™s unique automatic â€œMood Mappingâ€ feature or select from a library of included music tracks and adjust the mix and feel of the score to perfectly match your videos and slideshows.
BIAS SoundSoapâ„¢ â€“ Remove unwanted noise like wind, hisses, scratches, and pops from LPs, cassettes, or almost any audio, music or video soundtrack.
LightZoneâ„¢ â€“ Produce striking photos in a simple and intuitive way. Sophisticated features such as zone mapping and relight give you the control to achieve professional quality results.
FotoMagicoâ„¢ â€“ Turn pictures into spellbinding slideshows with a few simple clicks, and then present them in high definition. Innovative text, transition and alignment tools ensure astonishing results. Burn your slideshow to DVD or Blu-ray Disc for easy viewing and sharing.
To enter: Since Toast 10 is first and foremost about burning discs, leave us a comment telling us what horrible CD or DVD you would want to burn, literally, in a bonfire. It could be a Backstreet Boys CD your aunt gave you for Christmas one year, or the extended director’s cut of Halle Berry’s Catwoman. Maybe it’s that Barney & Friends CD your kids make you play when you get in the car â€“ plastic fumes, be damned, you know of a disc somewhere that needs burning! Winners will be picked randomly 7 days later and notified (kind of like in The Ring, only with less killing… we hope). Open to all readers world-wide. Good luck, and thanks for reading Macenstein! (Oh, and be sure to enter ALL our “12 Days AFTER Christmas” Giveaways!)
