1. No Sponsor: Home Screen (November 2013)

    November 25, 2013 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    I decided not to offer a sponsor post during holiday weeks.1

    Instead, here's some free advertising for stuff I use all the time.2

    This is my homescreen on my iPad:

    My home screen rarely changes unless an app dies or there is a successor for the function ...

  2. Pinner 2 for iOS

    November 12, 2013 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    Pinner is an iOS app for Pinboard.in junkies like me. I gave it a look when it first came out but the performance wasn't good enough to keep up with the number of bookmarks I have in Pinboard.

    I'm happy to say that Pinner 2.0 is ...

  3. The Saddleback Briefcase

    November 01, 2013 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    This is my review of a bag you probably will not buy, The Saddleback Classic Briefcase.1 It's leather and metal, weighs 8 lbs and is $600.

    The Saddleback Leather Company makes rugged and elegant bags, suitcases, and accessories that look as if they came right out of an ...

  4. iPad Air

    November 01, 2013 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    I've only had the Air for a few hours. My immediate impression is that it feels tiny. At first glance it looks like an iPad Mini. After waffling between the Mini and the Air, I'm glad I chose the Air. It feels like a Mini but works like ...

  5. Picatext for Image OCR on Mac

    October 19, 2013 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    Picatext is an unique application. It does something so unique that it's hard to evaluate it, but that won't stop me.

    Picatext does one thing: It extracts text from screenshots.

    There are two input methods in Picatext, the built in rectangular screenshot tool and file upload. Both work ...

  6. The Staedtler Triplus Blackbox

    October 14, 2013 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    I like a good pen as much as the next penophile. I bought my first fountain pen in high school with 3 weeks of gas station cleaning. It was a gorgeous silver plated heavy instrument from Yafa and it died a sad death on a busy street.

    I've become ...

  7. Shipment Tracking with Junecloud's Delivery Status

    September 13, 2013 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    Junecloud's Delivery Status is a on oldie but a goodie. It has a single purpose: Track shipments from a variety of carriers and provide optional notifications. The app is available for iOS and as a Mac Dashboard plugin. The iPad and iPhone apps are very good as well as ...

  8. CopyLess and Keyboard Maestro Clipboard History

    August 31, 2013 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    I wrote a quick review of CopyLess back in January. At that time I had about a month of usage under my belt. Fast forward 7 months and I'm still using it every day. I've moved away from Keyboard Maestro for managing my clipboard but it's also ...

  9. ioSafe NAS Review

    August 30, 2013 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    I became involved with my Synology NAS about 9 months ago. We're still in the honeymoon stages of our relationship, but I can honestly say that my storage has never been better.

    But sometimes my eye wanders. I see the USB 3 and Thunderbolt drives and think to myself ...

  10. FastMail Review [Link]

    July 21, 2013 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    Max Masnick has a great review of moving to FastMail from GMail. I'm moving from, well, a bunch of stuff to one consolidated email account. I like the FastMail search options and web interface. But really, Max sold me.

    I used Marco's: http://www.fastmail.fm/?STKI=1335305 ...
