ZamZar – That’s what I call “Software As A Service”

An awesome site I came across today… ZamZar.com is an online file conversion website. It can convert files from-to a lot of formats which basically include doc files, audio, video and images. Being true to its characteristic, ZamZar website is spewed with chameleon images and I found that there’s more to ZamZar’s connection with metamorphosis… Quoting the site,

What’s in a name ?

A mischevious beetleThe name “Zamzar” is based on a character from the Bohemian author Franz Kafka’s book “The Metamorphosis”. In the novel Kafka describes the extraordinary story of a young man who is transformed whilst sleeping into a gigantic insect.

The man’s name – Gregor Samsa – was used as the basis for our company name because of its’ powerful association with change and transformation.

I’ve been going crazy, converting my guitar videos from mpeg to 3gp for my mobile and converting some flv’s I had to avi’s. They have a really amazing way of integrating with browsers. Checkout the video below

What’s more… they email it all to you, and for FREE (They get their money through ads). Neat… Really awesome guys.. way to go.

Now that’s what I would call Software As A Service… a real Web2.0
