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.
I am happy to welcome Smile back as this week's sponsor here at TMO, and especially so this week because they've asked me to talk about their brand new product, PDFpen Scan+. Your iPhone's got a great camera, and it also has a really killer processor. Put those two things in the hands of the smart folks at Smile, and they turn out an app that will use the camera to scan documents and the processor to perform optical character recognition (OCR) on the text contained therein. The result can be a PDF with real text, not just a picture, or the raw text itself for you to edit.
I am thrilled today to welcome Many Tricks on board as this week's sponsor here at TMO, especially so because I get to tell you about Moom, their window-managment-enhancement software for OS X. Are you ever frustrated by how much effort it takes to get, say, your Safari window to just the right spot, only to close it and have a new one reappear somewhere else on your Mac's screen? How dare your Mac have the audacity to just pretend like it never happened, right? Moom can help... read on!
It's my pleasure to welcome back Smile as this week's sponsor here at TMO. As those astute readers have already seen in the sidebar, the focus this week is on PDFpen for iPad. As a long time user of PDFpen for Mac, PDFpen for iPad is one of those utilities that I always wished for but, for whatever reason, never quite believed would be possible on a tablet. I was wrong in the best way.
