I'm thrilled to have Bushel on board as our sponsor here this week at TMO. Bushel is, quite simply, device management for non-IT people. Certainly IT people will see value, too, but the folks at JAMF designed Bushel so you don't have to be in IT to enjoy using this. In their words, Bushel was created for those for whom IT is a task and not a career. And JAMF's history at creating some of the very best managment suites shows that they're quite capable of doing the heavy-lifting so you don't have to worry about it.
It's my pleasure to thank Lucidchart for sponsoring TMO this week. Lucidchart is, in short, Visio for Mac users. In your browser. No separate app to download, but it sure does feel like a Mac app. Digging deeper, Lucidchart features a robust shape library with many templates including flowcharts, floor plans, business analysis, network infrastructure, and more. Additionally, Lucidchart can import and export Visio files, allowing Mac users to easily work on files with Visio for Windows users. Read more for how to get started for free.
Thanks today to DearMob, the makers of 5KPlayer, for sponsoring us here at TMO this week. 5KPlayer is a free, all-in-one media player with AirPlay capability and the ability to download videos from online video sites, too.
It is my distinct pleasure to welcome Other World Computing back as this week's sponsor here at TMO. OWC has been making upgrades and other benefits available to Mac users since 1988, and their commitment to quality and customer service stands for itself. Read on for some great ideas about how to upgrade your Mac from them.
It is my distinct pleasure to have Project Wizards on board this week to sponsor TMO with their awesome project management app, Merlin. Long-time followers of TMO history will note that Project Wizards has been sponsoring our Cirque du Mac party for the past 5 years straight, contributing directly to the benefit of our collective community here. Please join me in offering our sincere thanks for all of this.
This week it is my absolute pleasure to welcome The Omni Group as our sponsor. And not only is The Omni Group this week's sponsor here, they were also instrumental in helping to make Cirque du Mac 2014 happen. They deserve (and got!) a big round of applause just for that. But that's not all. The Omni Group has been making fantastic apps for decades, and their iOS and Mac apps are all best-in-class.
I'd like to thank Digiarty for again sponsoring TMO this week. They're always good for a very useful freebee, and this time is no different. In fact, this time is even better than last! From now until the 24th, they're giving away MacX DVD Ripper Pro for free just for you.
We would like to thank Leawo for sponsoring TMO this week. Listeners of recent Mac Geek Gab episodes have heard us discussing all manner of Blu-Ray topics, and one frustration is the fact that the Mac won't natively play DVDs, even if you've got a USB Blu-Ray reader. Enter Leawo's Blu-Ray Player for Mac.
In what perhaps will be my final post before Thanksgiving, I would like to offer my thanks to Smile, this week's sponsor here at TMO. Our focus for this spot is on PDFPen, the all-purpose PDF editing tool for the Mac. Our world lives half in paper and half online, and PDFs are the bridge between those halves. And while we can all create PDFs as easily as we can print them (hint: check the menu in the lower left of your Mac's print dialog), to modify them you need PDFPen.
