Digital Photo Software

A wide variety of digital photo software is available. Some of it can be very inexpensive and easy to use. Other digital photo software can be both complicated and expensive. Personally, I have used PaintShop Pro, Adobe Photo Shop Elements, and Adobe Photo Shop. Each of these programs has pros and cons. If you want … Read this review…

Included with Leopard, the latest version of Mac OS X, are several new screen savers, one of which is a new effect for the standard “display your photos” screen saver. The previous version only had (as far as I remember) the standard ‘slideshow’ with gentle zooming and panning effects — the new version includes two … Read this review…

Well, it’s been a little over three weeks since my last proper update so I’ve forced myself at fingers-looking-like-a-gun point to write another. If you’ve been paying attention you might remember that I’ve briefly mentioned before that I’m getting a new power-chair — things in my life that I look forward to have a habit … Read this review…

The flying Ninja against a red Sun

As I mentioned before (and have kept on whinging about) the main drive in my iMac popped its clogs and I had to get it replaced.

This is another excellent application from Panic. Your digital life has a lot of statistics: incoming mail, appointments, disk space. Stattoo “tattoos” stats right on your desktop picture: out of the way, but always handy! You drag “capsules” of information onto a dock of sorts, in any order you like. This dock can be dragged … Read this review…

Delicious Library

I bought Delicious Library the day it was released … whenever that was – last year I think. I tinkered with it for a bit but then got bored of manually entering all my DVDs, CDs and books. If you’re in the dark: Delicious Library is a Mac OS X application that lets you catalogue … Read this review…
