|[8:30 AM] Data Hammer Web Summary Tool Updated
Glucose has released a maintenance update to the World Wide Web summary tool, Data Hammer. Data Hammer 2.2.5 allows web based "articles" to be summarized and presented in abstract form. According to Glucose:
Whenever Data Hammer encounters a page that appears to be an article, it automatically flips into summary mode. All unnecessary navigational links are stripped away, leaving only a short abstract. Then, you can simply use Data Hammer's slider to increase or decrease the page's level of detail.
This is a major bug fix release of Data Hammer. In addition to fixing lots of problems sent in by users, we've added automatic HTTP proxy support as well as brand new help documentation.
Data Hammer is available from the Glucose web site and is currently listed at US$24.95. You can find more information, at the company's web site.
The Mac Observer Spin: Data Hammer is one of the finest names for an app that we have ever heard. We have not used the product, but we love the name. :-)
On a more serious note, there is a huge potential market for this product. As our society gets closer and closer to an information overload state, more and more people will no doubt appreciate the ability to have their information cut down into more manageable levels.
