    Mac Gems: holiday-bundle bargains

    Posted November 23, 2012 - 11:11 pm

    With Thanksgiving upon us, it’s time for the annual avalanche of Black Friday sales—and Pre-Black Friday sales, and Cyber Monday sales, and Weekend-Before-Cyber Monday sales, and…you know the drill. But most of those sales, whether online or in physical stores, focus on hardware and gear. If you’re looking for some great Mac software, either for yourself or for your favorite gift recipient, there are currently two big Mac-software bundles, each offering a bevy of apps for one reasonable price. Even if you just wanted the Mac Gems each bundle contains, both are bargains, but each also includes a bunch of other good software that sweetens the pot considerably. (All apps included in these bundles are full versions.)

    Launch Center Pro deserves a space in your iPhone's dock

    Posted June 24, 2012 - 7:25 am

You can maneuver around through folders to find what you're after, and use the Spotlight menu to search for files and launch apps more quickly. Power users tend to prefer third-party utilities like LaunchBar ( Macworld rated 5 out of 5 mice ) or Alfred ( Macworld rated 4.5 out of 5 mice ). These are keyboard-driven apps that make quick work of common actions for tech savvy users.
