Matlab: Profiler and parfor

Two videos on extremely-useful-but not-so-frequently-used features in Matlab.

1. Profiler: While "profiling" may be a bad word in common parlance, it is a good word in software. It helps you identify potential areas in your program that may be targets for optimization.

2. Parallel "for" loops: An easy way to exploit multicore (or distributed cores) machines for task-parallel computations. Useless trivia: I went to grad school with the person doing the video (Jiro Doke).
