Mobile Window

16 Jul 2008

VNC for the iPhoneIt is finally here! What I always wanted in a PDA. I am a gadget guy, but not a business type, so I had PDA’s but never used them. My biggest compliant was the lack of power and storage. It seemed silly to me that if you had a company database with 10,000 records and you wanted that info while on the road, you would have first download it to your PDA. Plus, to do a search took a long time with the tiny processor. Or email, why mess with syncing and downloading, when you would have to do the same when you got back home.

My thought is to have a “window” to your desktop. All the power and storage of a desktop, without syncing. Mobile VNC would be perfect, but the interface would be a problem. The iPhone has made it possible with a little help from the app store and Mocha VNC Lite

What Steve didn’t say at WWDC 2007

12 Jun 2007

Automator now has a “record” feature, which will be nice to get a quick workflow together. But the best news is the variable support feature for storing values to use in a workflow. Hopefully that can sneak in conditional support before October.

Happy Mac Day!

Steve JobsPlease join me on Mac Day by wearing blue jeans and a black turtle neck. We honor his Steveness by donning his likeness. I will have to adjust for seasonal differences and go with a black T-shirt. I love all the rumors and hope at least have of them are true. One of my predictions that has yet to appear is the re-vamp of the Apple website (, they will finally get rid of the colored tabs and go from a white color scheme to a black one. More inline with the iphone sections.

KIP is now YEP

YEP screenshotMac only. YEP is a mac app for organizing your “paperless office”. A friend of mine asked me a few months ago about the very same thing and I had suggested using gallery to scan papers and receipts and upload them to the web application. Gallery allows for keywords and descriptions, and was a better solution than iPhoto, because it was online.

YEP has built in support for scanners and has tagging. YEP is free for now, but the developers will be charging for the next version.
