First Look: Sound Forge Pro 3 for Mac

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSAny podcaster or musician out there knows – the better the audio, the better chance people will give you. Adding in something that you might not expect can bring some great results. Next thing you know, people are asking you how you made it sound so good. That is where a program like Sound Forge Pro 3 for Mac comes in. With a version for Mac and one for PC, you can bring in tracks, or even whole songs, and get all the bumps and bruises out. You can re-organize thoughts, and even extract samples for other projects. Even if you have a multi-track editor or movie creator, a program like Sound Forge Pro allows you to take time away from the whole project and focus on one bit.

Dropbox Turns into Social Network with Frenzy for Mac 0

Dropbox Turns into Social Network with Frenzy for Mac

Dropbox is a Cloud service that allows you to place and retrieve files wherever you are. Since it’s inception in 2008, Dropbox has been a great way to share pictures, documents and more. But I never expected it to become a Social Network, too. Frenzy is an application for Mac OS X (what, no Windows?) that sits in the menubar and monitors the Dropbox shares. You add your friends to your lists. When you share a file, they can get notified. When they share or update a file, you can get notified. You can even update statuses and find out what is going on with the friends or colleagues in your network. Frenzy is a great option for those Small businesses that need to share files and communicate, but don’t want to do that through Facebook or Twitter. The Reality is: Frenzy will be a great way for...

Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSThis week I talk about what to expect on the Apple event on Wed. I suggest two items to the event – Thunderbolt on an iPad and iPhone5 and a way to tether the two. Will this change your thoughts to purchasing an iPad 2 and iPhone 5? Will Verizon have a bigger role in the phone and tablet?

Week in Tech History – 4-13-09 – Psystar Debuts

Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSBrought to you By GoToAssist – Go to www.gotoassist.com/techpodcasts for a 30 day free trial Psystar came on the scene with a very interesting proposition: Get a PC with Mac OS X. Can it be done? Ever since the switch from PowerPC to Intel, Mac software has been attempted and successfully installed on PC’s with Intel and AMD processors. So the next step would be to have someone package it up, right? Well, no. Apples’ End User License Agreement states that the OSX software can only be run on Mac approved hardware. Therefore, Psystar breeches the agreement. Psystar still continued on. Only hours after the websites caught on about this company, the website went down. People started speculating more about this “Publicity stunt”. The company “PowerPay” ended their contract with Psystar because they were not honoring the Service Agreement. Psystar said “That’s...

Week in Tech History – 3-23-09 – Gateway Buys Amiga

Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSThe Amiga has been sort of an enigma in the computer industry. It started in 1982 as the Amiga corporation, then Commodore purchased the line to put in their family of computers. The computer was held high for video production – with a video toaster, the system could do as much as a mac or PC, but for less price. Commodore of course folded up, but the Amiga line still tried to thrive. On March 27th 1997, Gateway 2000 decided to take over the reigns and be the home to this great machine. We have since seen Gateway come and go. Other historical notes for this week – the EU lands a fine on Microsoft, Microsoft splits into 5 while Motorola splits into 2. Seagate gets bought by Veritas and Kevin Mitnik pleads guilty to wire fraud. Finally we see Excel 4.0...
