I recently purchased a NAS and now I’m in the process of converting the rest of my DVD’s1 to enjoy my new media center. This tool is the s**t. I wonder why I haven’t come across it before. By the way, it’s available for nearly every platform plus you can also use it from the command-line. If it’s not your cup of tea, this might be.
Chapeau for the Rdio guys. I tip my hat to every developer who is still willing to integrate AppleScript support into a modern app. I’m currently back on Rdio myself (and I miss Spotify’s folders… but the recent builds made the application so slow that I switched again).
Another really cool command line tool that emerged on the Omni Group Forums. It uses the OmniFocus database to write text files. I love it. You can follow this blog to keep yourself up to date when new builds arrive. Thanks Poor Signal.
“Heads Up! is a new game for iPhone we’ve designed and developed for the Ellen Degeneres Show.” There’s only one bad thing to say about this app: it isn’t available in the German iTunes App Store (and I dislike switching accounts just for updating an app – I might have to make an exception here).
Everybody who has read the article about my Sweet Mac Setup on Shawn Blanc’s site knows that I’m a big fan of the stuff that Philips does with their mood lights. IFTTT basically sealed and I have to start saving some money now to get my hands on the hue lights.
Just kidding. I’ve put my DVD’s in the cellar and keep them there till they rott to be on the safe side legally speaking. I’m downloading Torrents which is way faster than ripping each DVD one by one. This also spares me the horrible sound a DVD drive produces. ↩
