Zamzar — the free online file converter that changes text to HTML, MP3s to WAV files, and JPGs to PDFs — may turn out to be your new BFF.
There’s no sign-up, and no need to download new software: Simply upload a file from your computer (or enter the URL to, say, a YouTube video), and Zamzar e-mails you a link to your newly converted file. As for the funny name: It’s a play on Gregor Samsa — the shape-shifting protagonist of Kafka’s The Metamorphosis.
