    January 05, 2012 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    Looks like MacUpdate is having a sale on PDFPenPro. 50% off makes it a cool $49. It's a great application and FAR better than Acrobat. If you have any need to edit, OCR or manipulate PDF's this is the application to get.

  2. Fake Is Fun

    December 10, 2011 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    Fake[1] is so much fun. I expect to do a lot more with this. It really does make me giddy for some reason. Maybe because I’ve been doing some of this with Python scripts and it’s very difficult to do well.

    Fake is like Automator for the ...

  3. Productive Mac Bundle [Link]

    This new bundle looks great. Some of the best Mac apps out there for $40. Seems like a good deal for developer and buyer.

  4. ReshophNotes Updated

    November 16, 2011 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    I just noticed that ResophNotes, the Simplenote client for Windows, has been updated recently. I had thought it was abandoned-ware after a long delay in patches and feature enhancements. I was wrong. ResophNotes now supports pinned notes and syncs much faster. This is the definitive Simplenote client for those of ...

  5. Against QR Codes

    November 02, 2011 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    I don't begrudge people using QR codes but to me, they seem like a poor solution for a real problem. We need a way for a computer to interpret analog information from the real world. QR codes just make the problem worse for me. I see them on bus ...

    October 31, 2011 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    I was a big MacZOT buyer several years ago. They offered spectacular sales on good software. I've really preferred to stick to the app store lately, but every once in awhile they offer something unique and great. This is one of those times.

    Clever Mac Application to help you properly tie a Tie. $0.99 in the App Store.

  8. Keyboard Maestro Blog Updates [Link]

    October 04, 2011 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    A significant number of links were just added to the Keyboard Maestro (aka Peter N. Lewis) blog. Good stuff. Although I woke up to a KM flood in Reeder.

  9. On Evernote

    September 30, 2011 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    Brett Terpstra had a post a few days ago about how he uses Evernote even though he is predominately a plain text guy. Brett makes perfect sense. Damn him!

    I used Evernote like crazy for a long time. I paid for premium service for a long time. But it worried ...

    Beer Tracking Trilogy Episode 4

    See this post for the introduction and ground rules


    I started this project in Bento. A couple of years ago, I created a Bento database for cataloging beers I drank. The purpose was to know what to buy again, and what to avoid at ...
