mac archives

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Leap is one of the handiest Mac apps I’ve ever used.

Basically over the last two years, I’ve been throwing every file I want to keep long term (images, text, movies, whatever) into one big folder on my desktop and letting Leap help me find, tag, sort and filter all of it.

I’m up to over 1200 files in my Leap folder and I’ve never failed to find what I need using this fantastic program.

Five stars.

I realize this is pretty lame, but my favorite new feature of OS X Leopard is that the dock icon for iCal shows today’s date. Without opening it. Yes, I was one of those who liked to have iCal running just to see the correct date in the dock. No more! Funny, those little things that make you smile.

I was exploring the Mac OS X Character Palette again this morning and noticed something I hadn’t seen before. If you choose “View: All Characters” and then “Miscellaneous Scripts,” You’ll find the Deseret Alphabet. For the uninitiated, this was a phonetic alphabet created by the early saints to help immigrants in their move to English. It ships with Mac OS X by default!

We all love Parallels around here. Avid Mac users, yet forced to work in a Windows world. Now Parallels announces full support in an upcoming beta for full speed windows gaming, right on your mac desktop. A few days ago they announced 100,000 units sold on that app. And I absolutely love the new seamless mouse effect. Of course they lose points for their blogger account, but what a great product.
