Downsize for iPhoto

Has anyone given Downsize for iPhoto a look? What did you think? $20 seems a tad steep, but then again I don't find myself exporting a whole lot from iPhoto. It seems to me it should be an iPhoto plugin that makes itself available when I choose to export, not a separate application.

QotD: Up

Question: Shania Twain's "Up" album: red disc or green? Or, sadly, none of the above? My Answer: Red. That's the pop one, right? Red. (A reader suggested this question, or a variation: which version of "Party for Two" do you like most [red for me]. Thanks, Ruby!) You are encouraged to answer the Question of […]

Photon Now Free?

The fact that Photon is now free leads me to believe one of two things: That a significant update (which I was told a month or two ago was in development) is coming out soon. That work has been stopped entirely, and Photon is now a dead product. The former would be great, the latter […]

QotD: Super Bowl

Question: What are your Super Bowl XXXIX predictions? How about your Super Bowl XL predictions? My Answer: Patriots 27, Eagles 17. Steelers 27, Falcons 10. It's appalling the quality of play in the NFC - I can't see anyone pulling out a winning season except the Eagles and Falcons. It will obviously happen, but I […]

Happy Birthday, Macintosh!

Happy birthday to you Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday dear Macintosh Happy birthday to you… …and maaaaaany mooooooooore! Today is the Mac's 21st birthday. Why, our boy is old enough to drink now!. As I sit here staring at my 23" LCD attached to a dual 2 GHz G5 with 2.5 GB RAM about […]

Patriots 41, Steelers 27

A tale of two quarterbacks, one a two-time Super Bowl MVP, the other a record-setting rookie. The difference? Tom Ben Att/Comp 14/21 14/24 Yards 207 226 TD/INT 2/0 2/3 Rushing yards? Pittsburgh 163, New England 126. Corey Dillon broke a 25-yarder on a play the Patriots should not have been able to make, but for […]

QotD: Snow Days

Question: What's your most memorable snow day? For those who live in areas without snow, what's the most memorable school cancellation? My Answer: Can't say. We never had one, not a single one of 'em. One time, in high school, we had three feet of snow dumped on us overnight. I was sure we'd have […]

Aston Martin

The Bond Aston Martin Vanquish, only $255,000. Really quite inexpensive if you ask me.

QotD: Middle Name

Question: What is your middle name? Do you care to change it? My Answer: Joseph. And no, not really… Goodness knows I use the "J." enough. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

QotD: Color Mac Minis

Question: Should Apple offer colored Mac minis? My Answer: Sure, why not. But something tells me they're going to have a hard enough time keeping up with production here with just one case option. As someone who watched the iPod mini rush first-hand, I can say that color complicates things. People "settling" for their second-choice […]

QotD: Stamps

Question: Stamps: how many do you use per month? My Answer: About five. Crappy QotD, but today was a busy day. Get PulpFiction 1.2, mmmmk? 🙂 You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

PulpFiction 1.2 is now available. PulpFiction Lite 1.2 will be available later today or tomorrow. Over the past ten days, we've been counting down some of PulpFiction's new features. A quick recap of the ones I like most: Smart Folders Enclosures support Wide view Local feed support NetNewsWire Stylesheet support Authenticated feeds More control over […]

Tomorrow, we'll be releasing PulpFiction 1.2. On each of the past ten days, I've discussed one of PulpFiction's new features. Today's is the last one prior to its release, and it is my favorite. Today's feature: smart folders. If you can filter by something, you can likely create a smart folder by it as well. […]

QotD: rel=nofollow

Question: Will the 'rel="nofollow"' idea work? My Answer: It's a step in the right direction, but I've gotta agree with Chuq: I don't think it's going to be economically damning enough to comment spammers. Furthermore, it hurts authentic commenters who leave their URL on my blog. If they're contributing, why shouldn't they benefit from some […]

QotD: Bluetooth

Question: Got Bluetooth? My Answer: Yeah, but besides transferring a few pictures or MP3s to my phone (which actually hasn't worked in awhile), I don't do a whole lot. I should use my Bluetooth headset more, though… You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your […]
