Fun Videos: Legendary Figures Born Today

It just so happens that September 23 is the birth date of some legendary figures of our times. Can you guess who? We gathered some videos of them for you, so let the fun begin! Make sure you have Speedbit Video Accelerator, so you can watch these videos smoothly, without any pauses or breaks.

Let’s start with some legendary Rock, R&B and Jazz musicians.

Bruce Springsteen – The River

by BruceSpringsteenVEVO

Did you know? Bruce Springsteen earned 20 Grammy Awards. His first Grammy Award was for Best Rock Vocal Performance on “Dancing in the Dark” in 1985*.

Ray Charles – Hit The Road Jack

by bengoaunai

Did you know? Ray Charles recorded with ABC since 1959, becoming the first African-American musician to be given artistic control by a mainstream record company*.

John Coltrane – The World According to John Coltrane

by Júlio Pimentel

Did you know? The St. John Coltrane African Orthodox Church, San Francisco, incorporates Coltrane’s music and his lyrics as prayers in its liturgy*.

Hard to believe that Bruce Springsteen, Ray Charles and John Coltrane were all born on the same day. One day, three legendary musicians.
Now, let’s turn to some historical figures… Did you know that Augustus Caesar (63 BC – 14 AD), the first Roman emperor was born today?

Now, for some funny stuff…
The TV actor Jason Alexander was also born today. Watch some of his funniest moments as George Costanza on the popular TV show, Seinfeld:

Accelerate Online Videos – Fun Videos for the Weekend

Hey, do you know whose birthday it is today?
Hint: most famous picture – mad looking man with white hair and tongue sticking out.
Hint 2: E=MC2. That’s right – Albert Einstein was born 135 years ago today on March 14, 1879. The most famous scientist, no doubt, and with that picture in mind, perhaps also the basis for the stereotype of the mad scientist…

So what do we actually know about the man besides the fact that he was a great scientist? It’s quite amazing that even today (59 years after his death), there are endless videos about him floating around the web – educational, biographical, funny, very funny, not to mention hilarious videos… We gathered some of them for you so sit back and enjoy! Make sure you have Speedbit Video Accelerator, so you can watch these videos smoothly, without any pauses or breaks.

7 facts about Albert Einstein by JPD698


Queen Elizabeth and Albert Einstein by PodP Productions:


Albert Einstein as a Young and as an Older Man by Bill Angel


Ok, so we all know Einstein came up with the E=MC2 equation. But how many of you can clearly explain what it means?

Make sure to download Speedbit Video Accelerator so you don’t miss all the great animation effects – it’s FREE!

Sending large files from your iPhone

Sending photos and videos have made it so easy to share the moment with friends and loved ones. We can no longer see a funny sign, a cute cat, a baby’s first steps without rushing to take a photo and sending it to our friends. Now that smartphones have made it so easy, we really can’t hold ourselves back. But what if your file is really large (like a video, 3D animation, presentation or other document)? It will bounce back- right? That spoils all the fun…And what if you have multiple files to share (vacation photos, school project, a series of documents)? Sending one by one is obviously NOT an option… and using a storage service is costly and time-consuming.

This is the time to get acquainted with the new FileFlyer App. It’s a free app that lets you send large and multiple files from your mobile devices using Speedbit’s popular FileFlyer service.

FileFlyer App lets you share your photos and videos as soon as you take them, without worrying about the file size. Everything is done directly from your iPhone or iPad so you can just shoot and send!

You can send files as large as 2GB! There’s no hassles attached – no registration, no configurations, and no need to buy storage space. It’s fast, simple, and best of all – FREE.

Once you upload your file, a download link is sent to your friends. They can then click the download link (or scan the QR code if they have the FileFlyer App) to download and view your file.

Speedbit’s FileFlyer service is available both via the FileFlyer website, and the new FileFlyer App.
