Basically this thing is the kitchen sink of organizers….and it does OCR to boot. So head over to evernote.com and sign up for an invite, download whatever method of interface […]
Silverlight is here….MS joins the 21 Century?
Today Microsoft finally released their flash competitor, Silverlight. I have to admit that they actually have a catchy name, but that’s not really why you’re reading this….right? I downloaded and installed the app on my MBP and it installed flawlessly under OSX 10.4.10. So far so good, next I restarted safari and visited the silverlight […]
Fly cheaper and stay longer with Farecast….
If you’re travelling in the near future you really should take a look at Farecast.com. It’s a little bit like kayak.com in that it queries multiple other travel sites and presents a ajaxy interface to you to narrow your search down. Unique to farecast is their new Hotels search that is basically a web2.0 app […]
Diagram editor right in your browser…..
So today I had a choice to make. You see I had to draw a small diagram and needed a editor. Now I know visio is the end-all-be-all of editors, but I needed something fast and simple. Oh and I really didn’t want to go down to the office to pick up the install disks […]

We’ve all done this and marvelled at the simplicity of the concept. Another feature that I like is […]
Photoshop on the Web….
Just came across this site Fauxto.com (read it like it’s french…..Phau-to….ie: photo). Anyways, great web 2.0 application. It has all your standard photo application funtions/features (including layers for all you PS guys). Maybe it’s just me, but a couple more applications like this and well, we won’t need the OS anymore (be it OSX, WinXP, […]
Oh and one last thing….
iPhone, aka. Apple Inc.’s Achilles Heel. Well, just about everyone was waiting for a SDK for the bloody thing. They wanted to rush to the AT&T store on June 29, buy a iPhone and start developing real software for it. You know, the kind of software that is actually useful. Well Apple’s idea of software […]
Bill, google is coming to getcha…
Well, here is my prediction after digesting most of the content that came out of G-Day. Google Gears will soon make MS Office (and for that matter most “installed” applications) obsolete. Google’s Gears homepage explains that Gears is … Google in a press release states that Gears “marks an important step in the evolution of […]
