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!

You’ll have to listen to find out what Chiroptophobia is, but the why they called the show that is still a mystery. Maybe they have a fear of naming things (no that would be Nomatophobia).The big 400th Podcast is coming up and Gaz and Guy can’t WAIT to give you people stuff for being so wonderful about listening to the show! However they seem to be able to make you wait until the 400th podcast actually happens. So far they have three companies willing to pony up some great prizes including BusyCal from BusyMac Software, the Co-Pilot iOS app from ALK Technologies , and MacKeeper 2012 from ZeoBIT Software. Then they go over a big list (but not a conclusive list) of the software they like on their Macs and why.

Macspiration 106
Return of the Downloads

On February 5, 2008, in How-To, Macspiration, Opinion, by Donny Yankellow

It has been a while since I’ve done a Macspiration recommending downloads. To be honest, I haven’t found to many worthwhile freebies for an article. With that said, I have scrounged around my hard drive and found a hand full of downloads for you.


Fluid
Fluid is a Leopard only app, and is very interesting. I didn’t think it was useful, but the more I use it the more I am hooked. Fluid is a beta program that will take a link to a website and make it an app. For example, instead of having a bookmark for Google Docs or even a link in your Dock to the site, Fluid takes the link and turns it into an app. Essentially, a Safari-like window opens, but only for that link. I know it sounds like a bookmark, but I have been using it for several sites I regularly use at work, and I am hooked.

Review

NetNewsWire
Company: Ranchero Software

Price: $39.95

Everyone knows what a RSS feed is, well maybe not everyone. If you don’t know what an RSS feed is send me your home address and I’ll personally come kick you to death for being so out of touch. I’m joking, my knees feel like gravel in a Ziplock bag, I couldn’t kick an ant to death. The threat does illustrate a point, most computer articles assume you have a fairly good rapport with a computer. The implication is that on some level you understand the inner workings and the supposed benefits of this or that feature. This is a mistaken notion: Many folks don’t care to know the particulars of any one process they just want the thing to do something useful. Not a big demand to my way of thinking, but products that meet this criteria are fairly rare. So let’s take a look at a Mac add on that adds premium functionality with minimal fuss: NetNewsWire by Ranchero software.
