GetWebKit! is a web browser for Windows. GetWebKit! is for Windows what Safari is for the Mac. I haven’t tried it though since I don’t have a PC. [Link]

Introducing Vista 2.0

Post by Mark

Vista 2

I love the way how Apple always manages to find a cool way of attacking Microsoft. Tonight is the Worldwide Developers Conference where Apple will be introducing some new products and someone managed to take a picture of a banner for the new Mac OS which has the headline “Introducing Vista 2.0”. If you didn’t get what it means its basically taking a shot at the upcoming Microsoft Vista (the new Windows) which is already more then 2 years late. Basically the poster is saying that OSX (Macs operating system) is already way more advanced then Vista. [Link]

update: another banner reads “Redmond has its own cat. A copycat.”

iPhoto for Documents

Post by Mark

I found this cool Mac software via Digg called Kip. What is Kip? According to the description on their website, every house has cardboard boxes full of receipts, important medical records and old letters. Kip finally gives you a tool to keep all these documents in one place, instantly retrievable and searchable.

Whats also cool about Kip is that it looks and works like iPhoto. You can tag your documents so you can later find what you want quickly. I am going to use it to scan some of my receipts, contracts and letters which should turn out cool. Its also free so check it out. [Link]

WriteRoom

Post by Mark

WriteRoom

I think I finally found a replacement for TextEdit and its called WriteRoom. This is how the creators describe it:

For Mac users who enjoy the simplicity of a typewriter, but live in the digital world. WriteRoom is a full screen, distraction free, writing environment. Unlike standard word processors that focus on features, WriteRoom is just about you and your text.

You set the software to full screen and thats it, you are suddenly in a different place. You could also change the background color to blue and the text to white and pretend you are Doogie Howser. Whatever colors you go with, the most important thing is this software is free! [Link]

Google Firefox Sync Tool

Post by Mark

I love the Firefox Internet browser because of the amount of extensions available for it. The latest one I have been using is Google’s Firefox sync tool. It basically allows you to sync your Firefox browser across many computers. For example I use 3 computers for browsing, my Mac at home, Nat’s PowerBook and my Mac at work. With Google’s Firefox sync tool I can sync my bookmarks, my passwords, my browser history and even the tabs I have open across all my computers. There have been other extensions that have done this before but this is the first time one has done it so easily.

My problem with this tool like all the other sync tools is it’s slow. When you first load up Firefox it has to check online and see what updates I did in my previous browsing session on my other computers and then sync my local Mac with those changes. Also when I quit Firefox it has to save my changes online so that when I get home it would get synced over there. These waiting periods can be frustratingly slow specially if you just want to load up the browser for a quick search. Luckily you can cancel the sync if you need to and browse right ahead without getting anything synced.

Anyway its worth a shot, I have been using it for a few days now and it still hasn’t gotten on my nerve so that’s a good thing. [Link]

Macsaber

Post by Mark

The past few days I was hearing a lot about this application on the Mac called Macsaber that worked with the latest Apple notebooks by replicating the Star Wars light saber sound everytime you swung your Mac around. Anyway I couldn’t try it myself and I couldn’t find any videos or pictures of it in action so I ignored it.. until now. I present you with Macbook Man! [Link]
