social sites. Just download a local copy of your Facebook albums and
send them as email attachments or burn a DVD. You can browse your
photo library on the go from your BlackBerry, iPhone, or iPod Touch,
too. And, if ever you decide to close your Facebook account Fotobounce
can be a handy tool to move your albums to another photo sharing
website, like Flickr.

QUOTE TO MULL OVER

My mother drew a distinction between achievement and success.
She said that achievement is the knowledge that you have studied
and worked hard and done the best that is in you. Success is being
praised by others. That is nice but not as important or satisfying.
Always aim for achievement and forget about success.
