Peter Jackson couldn’t do it, Tolkien himself couldn’t do it, but Microsoft could and did. They stopped the Hobbits…temporarily anyway. Guy and Gaz finish their discussion on the best time to buy Apple stuff and so much more.
Guy’s App Pick : ArtText 2 by Belight Software $19.99
Gaz’s Pick: Diptic both in the Mac and IOS App stores, basically create one image from multiple images within a set of frames. £0.79 with in app purchases for IOS not required and not bad prices to be honest.
People’s Pick: Rob Rait
Serial Podcast. This is like a serialised docu-drama about a murder 15 years ago where the narrator of the podcast is investigating the circumstances of the case. Still ongoing so I’ve no idea whether they’ll find the convicted perpetrator innocent or not. Gripping stuff 🙂
This is the podcast that has had the media going on about the re-birth of podcasting. Apparently it was the fastest growing podcast on iTunes ever.

On this show, Gaz has to do a bit of an end-around since his daughter took his beloved Mac Mini away, so it’s off to the Mini Media server with it’s 32-inch HDTV. Some 1Password love from Guy (who FINALLY bought it after saying for who knows how long he was going to) for it’s web services, and the GMen talk about online Photo services, bee stings, running CAT6 cable, and Flipper?

ArtText allows you to make a logo, button for your website, funky text designs and more with a few clicks of the mouse. Once you have those parts of the design done you can apply numerous textures, patterns, and even make the design have a 3D look to it. the amount of materials you can apply to your design for a dimensional look is impressive. From glass to metal to “artistic” you’ll find something that works for you.
Just because the name implies a Text/Font program there are more than fonts in ArtText 2. If you don’t consider yourself artistic there are over 200 pre-made designs that you can start with. Pick a design, change the text or color or materials, save, and you’re done.
