Ember for Mac – Review

On August 30, 2013, in Review, by Donny Yankellow


Company: Realmac Software
Price: $49.99 in the Mac App Store




As a writer here at MyMac and other sites, I am constantly taking screenshots for articles. Normally I take a screenshot and use an app called Sharpshooter to rename it and then I save it right to my desktop. Eventually, my desktop is a screenshot mess. Ember, by Realmac Software, is a screenshot taker/organizer to avoid that desktop mess. Think of it as iPhoto for screenshots.

It what might be a record, Gaz and Guy not only manage to keep the show under an hour, it’s under 50 minutes! Hold your applause though because you may miss the greatest Gaz’s Tip EVER…well we thought it was funny anyway. Samsung loses round one of the most watched patent trial since Edison won his against whoever that other person was! Some terrific feedback from you, our fantastic audience and apparently in some cultures, hippos equals horses.

Cirque du Mac Party

Wednesday morning marked another fine breakfast at, yes, you guessed it, Mel’s Diner. It’s good, wholesome (fattening) food, well-prepared, and reasonably priced. What more can you ask of a diner?

About Larry Grinnell

Larry Grinnell has been a Mac user since before there were Macs, first being exposed to his brother-in-law's Apple Lisa 7/7 office system, in 1982 or 1983. After a nine year stint in the US Air Force, he took an electronics technician job at Motorola, Inc., where he stayed for almost 27 years. In that time, he held additional diverse positions from manufacturing engineering technician to technical writing to print production consultant to department webmaster. Currently, he's the sole technical writer for a small communications/electronics firm in Davie, FL. He is a member of the MyMac.com writing staff, and recently completed a two-year stint writing a weekly Macintosh and Apple-oriented column for the Palm Beach Business website (http://www.pbbusiness.com). In his copious free time, he does layout and prepress work for the Grinnell Family Association's quarterly newsletter, and runs their website at http://www.grinnellfamily.org. In 2013, one of his photographs was published in the New York Times. He just finished editing, layout, and prepress work for an all new Grinnell family genealogy, which promises to be roughly 2,800 pages in size. Publication date is tentatively scheduled for late 2015 or early 2016. Larry collects jazz guitar recordings, and is currently trying, for the fifth time, to learn to play the guitar. He lives in Greenacres, FL.

Shorter than usual but taking probably twice as long as it needed to since nearly everything was created and edited on iOS. Tim and Guy run through the latest stuff found at the Macworld/iWorld Expo before Guy has four recorded bits with various show vendors.

RapidWeaver 3.6

On January 2, 2008, in Review, by Claus Wolf

RapidWeaver 3.6
Company: RealMac Software

Price: US$ 49.00 / € 35.82

In the beginning of the web, a html page was a hand-coded effort. There isn’t a lot to basic HTML, but it takes a while to get used to this page description language. With the advent of the first WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editors the tedious task of typing HTML was no more difficult then creating a document in Word or Pages. Still you needed a bit of a design talent to make the page look good.

Template based web design tools help you create stunning web-pages in a flash. A good template based design tool will also have features, which will let you incorporate your digital life, such as photos, videos and of course your blogs and/or podcasts. The market is pretty much divided between iWeb and RapidWeaver and our very own Guy Serle has done a marvelous job outlining the abilities of iWeb. I will keep this review of RapidWevaer rather short, so please consider it a brief introduction rather than a full review.
