CmdVees Clipboard Manager for OS X

Today I found my ultimate clipboard manager for OS X that simulates a lot of what I liked about ClipX on Windows.  The real Pop-and-Paste…get some

Ultrabooks Please Have 8 Gigs RAM Available

This HP Spectre is so close and beautiful (I played with one in the store the other day), but still stuck at 4 GB RAM.

Though, every day that passes I’m less likely to give up my custom tweaked MBPro 13” with SSD and 8 Gigs of RAM, despite all the flaws I find with OS X.

The new Evernote 4.0 for Android looks pretty sweet.  And not just because they demonstrate it on the sexy HTX One S

It seems “wasting time playing games on the iPad” is the new “wasting time watching television”.  If this is the case for you, check out this deck-building card game that was released for iOS.  
I never played Magic the Gathering or the ilk, back in the day.  But I find that Ascention is fun, and fast to play and only took a couple games to understand it.

The Pebble Watch on KickStarter

An amazing geek project on Kickstarter has raised nearly 5 million dollars.  The Pebble e-Paper watch.

It’ll be interesting to see if something like this catches on with non-Geeks.  Does anyone else remember those Timex Datalink watches from 1996/1997 that would synchronize with Outlook ‘97.  You used to hold the watch up in front of the computer screen and a bunch of line patterns would flash to transfer the data.  It was really geek-cool at the time.

Timex DataLink

I want to buy the Pebble watch, I can think of a lot of cool things to do with it.  Like an application that sends my current cycling intervals to the watch so I can see what I’m supposed to do next on the bike.  However, I know the reality, I’d buy this thing, play with it for a couple days and then not use it.  

One thing, though.  I’m curious how the Pebble App store application will work. I thought Apple’s tightened reigns on apps with their own application eco-systems (llike Sony and Amazon’s e-reader applications).

Are you geek enough to wear this around?

Paper is getting all the hype as the drawing app for the iPad, but after playing with many…Procreate is the one worth buying.

Definitely worth spending five minutes to watch this.  Inspirational and truly original.

A Google Tablet?

Being an iPad owner, there’s a couple things I’m fond of for tablets: 1) A $200 price point (because afterall, these are toys for killing time for me) and 2) a 7” form factor that can slip into my jacket pocket (it’s this reason I always take a Kindle with me).

The features that I use most on my iPad - especially after the initial joy of installing the latest app that’s hyped with a sexy interface, but ultimately never makes it into my daily workflow - is video viewing while travelling and reading saved articles on Instapaper.

It’s this 10 Hour battery life and instant on that makes this convenient.  Pretty much everything else I prefer doing on the computer, even though I still try doing it on the iPad…

Anyway, interested in what Google comes up with. 

Sidenote: I played with a friends Kindle Fire and I’m not nearly as turned off as many with it, and I find the 7” form factor attractive.

Paper looks like an interesting iPad app and I could dream of sitting down with the iPad and writing and doodling. However, I find that drawing on the iPads cumbersome, at best (yes, I know some people make some amazing art). I’m going to try a stylus soon, but almost everyone told me not to expect much.
I look forward to the days when manufacturers can build a hybrid technology that has both passive and active digitizers for those times when you want to get percise with drawing.
I installed this app and played with the default brush inlcuded. I wasn’t overly impressed.  Already loaded on my iPad are Pentultimate, SketchBook and Adobe Ideas.  I didn’t see anything in Paper that would make me more productive, though the beauty of its implementation is enticing.  It’s apps like these that I WANT to LOVE, and end up purchasing, but after tinkering with them for a day, end up not using.
