Magic Charger – Inductive Charging for your Magic Mouse

Magic Charger - Inductive Charging for your Magic Mouse
The concept of inductive charging is pretty interesting to me. I’m not a fan of wires, and every night I have to plug in my iPhone to get charged for the next day. Although there are lots of different options out there to fix that problem in the iPhone, they all look clunky and large Read more…

AutoCad Coming to Mac

AutoCad Coming to Mac
My wife and I both enjoy Apple products, but I’ve been more into them than her for a little while now. That’s mostly because of her work as a kitchen designer, which requires her to use AutoCad and other Windows-only products. If it weren’t for that, she’d probably switch over to a Mac tomorrow. Strangely Read more…

Apple Gazette Reviews: OmniFocus for Mac

Apple Gazette Reviews: OmniFocus for Mac
I’ve always been one of those guys who looks really organized, but gets panicked under pressure if things aren’t setup just right.

But I can read press releases as well as any other third grader, so here’s the highlights in Apple’s PR speak: Apple sold 3.47 million Macs during the quarter, representing a new quarterly record and Read more…

Start Getting Things Done with Concentrate

Start Getting Things Done with Concentrate
Although I’ve never been diagnosed with it, I think I may be a little bit ADD. There are many times throughout the day that I’ll want to do something, but then I’ll get distracted by one thing or another.

Half Life 2 Teased for Steam on Mac

I’m not a huge computer gamer, I’m much more of a console guy. But when Steam came out for the Mac, I decided to try it out. I had been wanting to play Portal for a long time now, I just hadn’t picked it up for my 360 yet – kind of a low priority, Read more…
