Apple Gazette Reviews: ForeverSave

Apple Gazette Reviews: ForeverSave
Sometimes, you’ve got to learn things the hard way, like I did the other day. I have multiple spreadsheets open on my desktop at one time, most of them in Numbers. Up until recently, I was using Excel for all of my spreadsheet duties, but once my wife started showing me the cool things she Read more…

Things I Like: Hyperspaces

Things I Like: Hyperspaces
When I first got my old MacBook, I wanted to use every feature of Leopard that I could. Problem was, my 13-inch MacBook wasn’t able to handle some of the more advanced features such as Spaces, because of it’s integrated video card. Once I turned off Spaces, I promptly forgot about it until recently when Read more…

Google Ditches Windows for New Employees, Goes with OSX or Linux Instead

Google Ditches Windows for New Employees, Goes with OSX or Linux Instead
I’ve worked at quite a few places in my day, but none quite like what Google and Pixar have created, and frankly, that makes me a bit jealous. See that slide up there? That’s in Google’s corporate headquarters, believe it or not, and is just one of the cool things about their workplace. It gives Read more…

Fonts: Which are Necessary?

Fonts: Which are Necessary?
When I organize fonts on my Mac, I like to keep a special category for System and Application fonts that should always be active (i.e. the “necessary” ones), and all the rest (as a print and web designer, I have a lot) in several categories that I turn on and off according to my needs. Read more…

OSX Tools for Video Podcasting

OSX Tools for Video Podcasting
I create video tutorials on a regular basis for Tubetorial, and do it all on my Macbook. When I first got started, I used my PC and the excellent Camtasia, but since I’m so much more productive on my Mac, I thought I would give it a try one day- and I never looked back. Read more…

Decode Lossless Files with XLD

Decode Lossless Files with XLD
The truth is, I never thought I would file this under Apps I Can’t Live Without- I don’t really consider myself an “audiophile”. It was the Husband who turned me on to the joys of lossless music, and let me tell you, hearing Yo-Yo Ma play Bach Cello Suite No.1 without quality loss (which is Read more…

SpeakingFox for Firefox

While I do like Safari, as a web developer it’s just more practical for me to use Firefox. Plus, I get to use all these cool extensions! Like this one: SpeakingFox is a Firefox add-on that does one thing, and very well. It allows you to convert text in your browser to audible speech. Safari Read more…
