Evernote Mac Beta Application Features Stacks, Sharing

sharingpanel (1)

Evernote is one of my favorite web services, but using it on a Mac has been somewhat frustrating. The current Mac client doesn’t have all the features you’d expect, forcing Mac Evernote users to jump over to Evernote.com to share notes. That’s all about to change, and if you’re willing to run beta software you […]

The new MacBook Air models introduced Wednesday made quite a splash. There’s a lot of hype around Apple’s latest ultraportables, but after going hands-on with one myself I think the hype is well-deserved. After just a few minutes with the new 11.6″ MacBook Air it’s clear that there’s something very different here and it’s worth […]

The “one more thing” at today’s Apple event was a new Macbook Air. Steve teased us by mentioning some of the features they’re taking from the iPad for this new MBA, but ultimately, it’s just a smaller, newer model. Oh, and it has a younger brother.

I’m a big fan of Evernote, a service that’s the best note taking service out there in my opinion. Calling it a note taking solution is a bit of an understatement considering all of its features. Today, Evernote released a promo video showing how Aviary, a company that offers creative apps in the cloud, uses […]

BumpTop bumps out a Mac version

BumpTopMac

Hmmm… BumpTop, a touch and gesture based interface for working with your computer files, formerly for Windows only, has been released for Mac. Seems to work great via the multi-touch trackpad, as seen in the video demo (after the jump), but I must assume they’re also hoping to get some touchscreen love on an Apple […]

modbook_sm

Netbooks and other affordable devices are booming, but Apple’s stayed out of the game thus far. Some are speculating that Apple will announce a netbook or a device that resembles a jumbo iPod Touch will be announced at WWDC. There’s no shortage of people clamoring for such a device, but I wonder how much people […]
