One of these is the new “Snip” tool (different from the similarly named “Snipping Tool.”.) With it you can capture screen images annotate them and even create short videos – great for simple how-to’s. It’s similar to Screencast and SnagIt, but it’s free.
Snip was developed by the folks at Microsoft Garage, a program similar to Google’s 20% program. Employees work on these projects in their spare time, because they’re interested in the technology, not because it’s in their job description.
