vowe dot net: Move from Evernote to OneNote on a Mac.
I think I’ve expressed before, if I were starting from scratch, I’d look closer at Eaglefiler. I don’t use Evernote or OneNote regularly from mobile devices. Though, as with all things digital, that will likely change.
Cascable: The Professional WiFi Camera Remote.
“Got a wifi enabled camera?” Play.
The Verge: Adblock Plus has already defeated Facebook’s new ad blocking restrictions.
DP Review: Astropad 2.0 brings better performance and increased compatibility.
Have to try it again. Bought the previous version, played for a day, too slow/unresponsive.
c|net: Microsoft Word wants to help you with your homework.
NY Post: Victoria’s Secret retoucher reveals her techniques.
I’ve made jokes before about the Jockey catalogs when they arrive. Missing limbs, belly buttons, more. I guess that’s where retouchers go to learn from their mistakes, before going to a premium brand ...
Macworld: LiquidText for iPad review: All you need for deep research projects.
This looks like something we expected the iPad to offer, years ago. I’ll have to try it out.
Register.UK: Flaws found in security products from AVG, Symantec and McAfee.
“Microsoft is brewing a patch for Detours due to drop next month which will help to address matters.” Hoo boy. Back up your stuff, Win users.
Macworld: Scrivener for iOS review - A sophisticated writing and research app for on-the-go.
Quirky but lovely, I use Scrivener for all my longer-form writing on desktop. I’ve not tried this mobile variant yet.
Luminous Landscape: Whither Adobe? Issues With Accurate Printing From Lightroom and Photoshop.
Roll back or wait for final prints in August. Needs a faster fix, IMHO. This is important software for many.
Macintouch Forums: Building My $1200 Hackintosh.
Zoho: Free Evernote Alternative.
Usual caveats apply. [Such as, can you get out what you put in, etc. etc.]
AppleInsider: Another Mac-specific malware pops up.
Another FYI. Leave Gatekeeper configured to identify developers.
Cinema 4D now has short-term licensing available.
Still one of the best packages that combines the ease of the old Strata StudioPro line, and the speed of rendering of Electric Image rendering packages. I used to do well with Formz -> Cinema 4D.
Macworld: External Editors for Photos review: Every image editor is now an extension.
Just make sure you can easily set color balance/white point. I see that as a distinct weakness in all third-party PS competition.
James Friend | PCE.js - Classic Mac OS in the Browser.
AppleInsider: Users upset by Evernote price hikes & two-device limit for free Basic customers.
Later: Forgot, Volker - even before the price hike - prefers OneNote.
Editor’s note: Apologies about titles percolating to Twitter.
Because of all the work in-house, I’m not being as careful as I should about title lengths. They get truncated by EE1, and I don’t generally notice until I post the *next* entry. Trying to be better, but things still slip through. Another reason to upgrade (another item on the to-do list!).
The Atlantic: The Existentialism of GPS.
DP Review: Study - Instagram interactions declining as user base grows.
Hmmm. Hate the new algorithmic timeline. I just don’t use Instagram. Opportunity for Flickr to regain marketshare, IMHO.
Macworld: Apple previews Apple File System to replace HFS+ in 2017.
SketchApp Blog: Versioning, Licensing, and Sketch 4.0.
Zeldman: Instagram to third-party developers: drop dead.
“Flickr, while it yet lives, provides me with far richer layers of experience and capability than even the most tricked-out third-party Instagram app could dream of. I always used Instagram under protest, as a poor cousin. I used it because people were there, not because I liked it.” Preach, brother.
New Scientist: Study of 1 million sites shows just how closely we’re watched.
“Narayanan and Englehardt discovered that many trackers are sharing the information they gather with at least one other party, sometimes dozens of times. The audit also revealed several previously unknown ‘fingerprinting’ techniques that sites are using.”
