MyMac Podcast 523: Sad Face

On September 23, 2014, in Podcast, by The MyMac Podcast

The sound is good, the time is right, but it’s still the same GMen. Messages somehow confuses my son Peter AND Dave Hamilton for Apple. Yeah, I don’t get it either. The GMen are back to using Google Docs because Apple’s Pages and iCloud is completely hosed and they have a discussion about the many missteps lately from everyone’s (or maybe a few people anyway) favorite electronics company.

Guy’s App Pick: Time Machine. For probably the first time ever, a file got lost for me. It was a Canon MTS MPEG file that I tried to convert using a different program. Not only did it NOT convert, it made the file disappear. Time Machine went back in time (without those pesky morlocks) and put it back.
Gaz’s App Pick: ANTI PICK DON’T USE ICLOUD IT’S BIG FAIL :( OK that was because I’m upset I recently bought a pinball game for the iPad called PINBALL HD costs £1.49 and there are further in app purchases for more boards, this gives you 3 open boards but does give you access to a restricted board where you’ll need to buy the inApp purchase to access full functionality

MyMac Podcast #508: Apple is the Knight who says BING!

On June 9, 2014, in Podcast, by The MyMac Podcast

We get caught up on Guy’s adventure buying a car in Florida and how Gaz gets his iTunes for cheaps! The GMen go over some of what they thought was great from WWDC and then realize they forgot to mention a whole bunch of other things that they SAID they’ll get back to but probably won’t. Gaz’s language skills takes a horrible beating with Swahili and so much more!

People’s Pick: Erick Diaz likes the new Weather Channel app, newly refreshed to iOS 7 goodness JUST in time for iOS 8

It’s Guy’s birthday and he’ll podcast if he wants to, but Skype seems to think it’s a bad idea. Yep another Skype sucks and we hate it kind of show. We still had fun though making fun of Microsoft and wondering just how long has it been since most of the Mac line had been updated. Gaz gives a great tip and to the surprise of no one Guy hadn’t heard of it before. Most be his old age kicking in.

Much of the recognition with Siri on the new iPhone 4S is its ability to schedule meetings, set timers and reminders, and come up with some pretty humorous responses to off the wall questions. What hasn’t gotten a lot of press is one of the more powerful tools Siri’s voice-cognition capabilities offers to users of the iPhone 4S. Voice-dictation of emails, notes, and documents has never been easier. I decided to see for myself how well this is implemented with a few of the more frequently used apps on my iPhone 4S.

Macspiration Quick Tip: iCloud and iWork on Your Mac

On November 4, 2011, in Macspiration, by Donny Yankellow

One of the biggest complaints and surprises about iCloud is the fact that Apple did not update its suite of iWork applications to be iCloud compatible. iWork is long overdue for an update and I, like many, thought an iCloud update was coming with a new version of the apps (Keynote, Pages, Numbers).

FINDING MY RELIGION, DEVICE-AGNOSTICISM

On May 24, 2010, in Opinion, by Mark Rudd

PAGES AND THE IPAD

How excited I was to dream of Pages living in the Apple-lined cloud where I could create and edit my documents from anywhere at anytime with those files being served from one location with an ingenious silky-smooth Apple syncing system keeping all of my devices current and up to date. Let’s call it, MobileMe 2.0.

Fast forward to reality setting in. As I started out on my enthusiastic journey toward the promise-land of Pages on the iPad and cloud ubiquity, I was rudely awakened from my euphoric haze by the sad realities that are the limitations of Pages on the iPad. Don’t get me wrong, as a document creation and edit App, Pages is beautiful, full featured, and a testament to the unequalled ability of Apple to create software unlike any other in the industry.

iWork ’09 – Keynote, Pages, and Numbers – Apple Training Series

Are you using iWork? I use Keynote and Pages quite a bit and I am still getting familiar with Numbers. I find that I like them much better than the MS Office Apps. Remarkably, they don’t crash like the MS apps do.

Create a Media Browser Using Automator

On November 26, 2007, in How-To, Macintosh, by Bakari Chavanu

If you haven’t noticed yet, each of Apple’s main creative suite applications including iMovie, iDVD, Address Book, Keynote, Pages, Numbers, and now, Mail’s Stationery feature, includes a photo browser whereby you can access photos stored and managed in your iPhoto and Aperture libraries. This means that if you’re sending an email, creating a DVD slide show, editing a video movie, creating a postcard or newsletter letter layout in Pages, or putting together a spreadsheet in which you need photos or images, you can now access your images directly from the program you’re working in.

Macspiration 59
Quicktips for Pages

On November 8, 2006, in How-To, Macspiration, by Donny Yankellow


This week I’ll dive into part of Apple’s iWorks ‘06 package, and discuss some quick tips for Pages 2.


1. ENABLE RULERS

I don’t know about you, but I like to see rulers when I type a document. In Pages you can quickly turn on rulers by using the key combination of “Apple+R.” You can also go to the “View” menu and click “Show Rulers.” Want to get rid of rulers? Use the same key combination, or click “Hide Rulers” in the “View” menu.

A true Mac user would never be caught buying a Hallmark greeting card when he or she has TextEdit, AppleWorks, Pages or some other graphic layout program installed on his or her Mac.

If you have Pages installed, you can whip a out nice Mother’s Day letter that will be more meaningful and personal than all the store bought cards you’ve purchased in the past.

What you will need: Pages (AppleWorks or TextEdit can also be used), your iPhoto photos, and loving words.

Does Microsoft matter?

On March 18, 2005, in Opinion, by Neale Monks

Many people will see the announcement of a word processor from Apple as a statement of intent to reduce the dependency of the Mac platform on Microsoft. While AppleWorks (formerly ClarisWorks) had been around for years, it has always been seen too low-end to be much competition for Microsoft Word, Excel, or PowerPoint. But with arrival of Pages, a high-end word processor and page layout program, Apple is offering many professional and academic users a viable alternative to Word. If Pages turns out to be as successful as Safari and Keynote, does the Mac Business Unit at Microsoft have something to worry about? And if Microsoft stopped producing Office for the Mac, would it really matter?
