Some good stuff. Pixelmator is 50% off, if Adobe’s CC offerings are too dear for your overstressed wallet.

The Verge: Adobe’s got Photoshop running in Chrome.

Yeah, but don’t get all excited: “The application is downloaded via the Chrome Web Store, and when you open it up you’re actually connecting to a server which is running the desktop version of Photoshop CC 2014. The UI of the desktop version is captured as a video and sent to your browser, where javascript relays your actions back to the server, completing the interactive loop.” Better have a fast hookup; delays in UI get up my nose.

If you update to the latest Evernote for Mac ...

... and you seem to be missing the last month or so of notes, don’t panic. Hit the “Updated” column title a couple of times to re-sort.  Nothing’s missing, it just has a bit of brain fog.

The Register: That dreaded syncing feeling: Will Microsoft EVER fix OneDrive?

Sync failures are perhaps the biggest frustration for Office 365 users and those who support them, and when it happens the usual advice is to delete and resync everything, with possible loss of recently changed files.” Beware.

Indianapolis Business Journal: The tragedy of electronic medical records.

FYI. I’ve related my experience of a year or so ago ... sitting while a physician’s attendant hunt-and-pecked information into an EHR system for 45 minutes, something I volunteered to do and could have performed in five. Afterwards, they *still* screwed up insurance/billing. 

I have a feeling this is like the current electronic accounting market. Dozens of brands of customized software, all storing info in different ways, none compatible with another. Or am I wrong?

Well, now. That’s going to hurt the other drive vendors. Many of us have to get an Office365 account just to have a current copy of MS Word to open client docs with. Smart.

Bare Bones Software: BBEdit 11.

Automatic purchase! BBEdit still does things noone else does; I use it daily, and have for over a decade - no exaggeration. Note that I also use mine as a way to store text docs with client server specs, serial #‘s, etc. I don’t trust the modern password progs by themselves.  I like having plain text backups in multiple secure spots.
