It’s not often that I am 100% blown away by a new product, but in my opinion, this is yet another turning point in the online world, and I can’t believe I didn’t hear about it sooner.

For over two years now, I’ve been saying that whomever “solves my problem” is going to make big bucks, from a lot of people, and somebody finally has.

What Was My Problem?
I’m impatient, and want to learn things at my own pace! I can’t stand being frustrated by the speed of information delivery while I’m learning.

There are so many great things to absorb out there, but frankly, I don’t have the time! I’ve wished for a way to speed up Flash videos, and now my wish has been granted.

Play Videos FASTER
The product is called Myspeed, and it allows you to watch Flash movies at up to 3X the speed that the author intended. Wow. What a HUGE time saver! Try it for free for 7 days using my affiliate link and see how much time you can save!

I’m old enough to remember the day man walked on the moon, the day we first got a camcorder and VCR, and the day we bought a microwave oven. Those were pretty revolutionary.

I remember the day I first saw a coin-op video game (Pong) and then the Christmas where my brother and I got the worlds first home video game , the Magnavox Oddysey

Computers Changed My Life
In 1982 or so I bought my Radio shack TRS 80 and played Zork, and then full years passed before I got a Windows 3.1 PC, another eye opening revolution.

A couple of days later I thought I’d “seen it all” with Wolfenstein 3d, and even was eclipsed only hours later by Doom since I got them as a twin pack at Egghead Software.

The Internet Changed it Again
I remember staying up all night before work the day I finally got online with Prodigy internet, and all sorts of web/computer based milestones have come and gone through the years, but nothing has gotten me this jazzed since finding out about WordPress, despit all the cool things I’ve seen as CES over the past three years.

In the few weeks I’ve used it, MySpeed has saved me SO much time it’s scary – even more than Firefox Session Manager, which has saved me countless hours.

With all the “extra” time, I can even waste some of it, watching more funny Youtube videos that my son wants to show me, with the voice not even reverting to “Chipmunkese”.

Over the years I have watched a lot of educational videos, and for many of them, the sometimes BRILLIANT producers tend to speak more slowly and deliberately, rather than getting right to the point.

Obviously, this is done so is to appeal to the widest range of audience, but in my case, it can drive me crazy. I prefer learning at the pace dispensed by someone with the cadence of an auctioneer, and MySpeed gives it to me.

The full version allows speeds up to 300%, and the free version will allow you to go to 1.4 times the original speed.

It runs in your tray, its always available, and if you’re looking for ways to be more productive, I’ve never seen anything that has paid for itself many times over so quickly.

Try their 7 day demo for no charge and tell me if you don’t agree that it’s one of the best applications to come along since Bill P’s free Windows startup manager, Winpatrol.

Want to hear something really cool? I phoned their corporate office this morning and their system voicemail is sped up for efficiency, sweet ;)

Update:
They’ve provided us with a 20% discount code – SEARCHCOMMANDER20 – to use here.

  1. Looks like great, but I think it could be a little bit more user-friendly : the colors of the demo are not “beautiful”.

    Concerning MySpeed -> I truly see the benefit (solves two problems – faster through unwanted material and slower ->learn/review) Coupon invalid

    History of the iWorld – can relate to most noted event (got my TRS Trash 80 from my grandfather, built my first from a kit using a Z80 processor and a cassette tape as storage). Now I work with a team of IT Pros at a Technical School supporting over 40 Servers and about 5000 standalone PCs and Macs. Three weeks ago I broke tradition the second time and bought an iPad. I use it to monitor meetings on-the go using Splashtop and the auditoriums DVR … So Cool! Regards Crystal
