50 Kick-Ass Websites You Need to Know About - Page 1 It's time to update the entries in your browser's links toolbar. But with recent estimates putting the size of the internet at well more than 100 million distinct websites, it's getting harder and harder to get a handle on all the great stuff that's out there. That's why we've compiled this list. And unlike some lists you may have seen, which try to name the very "best" websites, but end up just telling you a lot of stuff you already know, we've chosen instead to highlight 50 of our favorite sites that fly under most people's radar. You might have heard of some of these sites, but we'll bet you haven't heard of all them. See What Can Be Done with 4 Kilobytes If you’re any kind of nerd at all, you probably know about the demoscene, where talented programmers create complex videos rendered in real-time, stored in incredibly small files. But what if you just want to see what all the fuss is about without actually downloading and running an executable?

Applenerd | Best reviews from Fans of Apple The Tao of Mac - HOWTO/Switch To The Mac …and enjoy doing it. Update: revisions for 2012 and Mountain Lion. You may also want to visit my Switch page, which tries to list suitable Mac OS X replacements for common Windows applications. Introduction Welcome! A lot of people have been moving to the Mac over the past few years, so a while back I thought I’d jot down a few notes about my experience over the last ten years or so. The motives for anyone switching will not be discussed here – discussing relative merits of computer platforms is very much like discussing cars, and therefore largely unimportant if you are getting what you want. My main point to begin with is that quasi-religious beliefs that any platform is better than another are not just irrelevant, but plain childish and stupid. So if you know you want a Mac, you’ve come to the right place for a few basic hints that might just save you a lot of time. The second (and quite frequent) issue is compatibility. The bottom line on that is: You can do anything on a Mac, period.

heresthethingblog Did you know that there’s more than one desktop on your Mac? Yep, it’s true—and in “Lion,” the just-released update for the Mac operating system, you can pretty much have as many desktops as you want, each filled with its own assortment of open documents and applications. Sound confusing? Sure. After all, most of us are used to having a single desktop on our systems—you know, the one that’s directly in front of us. The idea of have more, “virtual” desktop spaces with open windows that you can’t see can take a little getting used to. Once you get the hang of it, though, these additional desktop spaces—which you manage in Mac OS X Lion with a new feature, dubbed “Mission Control”—can become addicting, even essential.

Command-Tab - June 9 2017 - 7:06 am Kirk and I go deep on playlists in iTunes in this week’s episode of The Next Track podcast. Real deep. This episode is sponsored by Audio Hijack from Rogue Amoeba. You can listen to the episode at The Next Track website here or subscribe here in iTunes to make sure you get all future episodes. May 31 2017 - 3:38 pm I have just updated Delete Empty Playlists to v3.0. This latest version can, certainly, delete all the empty playlists it finds. Delete Empty Playlists is free to use with a donation nag and is available to download from this page. May 23 2017 - 7:54 pm Apple released iTunes just about a week ago. I believe this is the third time a release has been updated with a minor build shortly after its initial release. May 22 2017 - 12:00 pm It is possible that a recent change in the operating system may affect the ability to make an in-app donation in several scripts. I am working on updates.

The Best Mac Apps of 2012 So Far As you some of you may have seen, we recently asked our Twitter and Facebook followers to name their favorite Mac desktop apps of the year so far – thanks again to everyone who sent us suggestions. After a little in-house brainstorming, we took the decision to add a few apps that were released earlier than 2012, but have become very important in our lives this year. Here’s the full selection we came up with, from blockbusters to hidden gems. 1. If we live in the same universe, chances are it doesn’t need an introduction, but just in case: Angry Birds Space is the latest installment in the Angry Birds franchise, and one of our personal favorites. ➤ Angry Birds Space 2. While Snapseed was launched in 2011, it only became available in the Mac App Store last January. ➤ Snapseed 3. Limbo is a hauntingly beautiful black & white game, which you may also have tested in its Xbox 360 version before its Mac launch last Christmas. 4. ➤ Fantastical 5. ➤ Sparrow and Sparrow Lite 6. ➤ Coda 2 7. ➤ Trickster
