No Gaz this week as he’s off on one of those pesky vacations but Guy isn’t flying solo as Tim Verpoorten from SurfBits and the Mac ReviewCast jumps in. They talk about how it’s Tim’s fault his wife hit their garage, bad multiple modems, and a weird iPhoto Library issue. From there it’s off to Some Mountain Lion talk, the death of yet another Apple cloud service, and bigger iPhones with smaller connectors. It’ll all make sense once you listen…trust me!
No time for prayer? Not to worry technology has you covered!
The “Save As” command is back…in a way

For the first few years that I was using a Mac, I used Claris Emailer, versions 1 and 2, which quickly became my email program of choice. In 1998 when Apple lost interest in Emailer, I searched around for a replacement and found PowerMail 2.0.3 by CTM Development. PowerMail was the closest mail application that I found that brought out the best of Emailer and that has continued to be improved upon over the years. PowerMail 6 was released by CTM and I’ve been using it for the past few months as I have since 1998. I have emails that I imported into PowerMail that go back to 1995, all related to My Mac.
Growl is one of those tools that really should have been an integral part of Mac OS X. Fortunately there are some very clever developers out there, which dedicate their time to create useful add-ons like this.
Growl is a notification systemfor Mac OS X. It’s main purpose is to allow an application to communicate with you, by displaying a small notification (see below) on top of any other window. This is particularly useful if the application that “wants to talk to you” is in the background at the time.
