Last Chance to Save 50% on OmniFocus

OmniFocus

One of my New Years resolutions is to be more organized with my time. Like any self-respecting computer geek I turned to software to help.

A while back there was a lot of buzz around OmniFocus, the new task management app from OmniGroup. At first I didn’t pay much attention because I though…Ya, whatever… a new ToDo app. But, after watching their demo movie (available in the sidebar on the OmniFocus page) I realized that this app does pack a lot of power. I can see how it could help someone like myself get things done, when used correctly.

OmniFocus 1.0 is scheduled to be released tomorrow (1.08.08). The full retail price of $79.95 (usd) is a little out of reach for most casual users. But, you can get it for $39.95 if you buy it before it’s released. If you think you may want to use OmniFocus, I would grab it today and save 40 bucks.

Self-publishing is the new blogging

“…And then the writers and designers, ashamed at rubbing shoulders with common humanity, discovered the 140-character Tweet and the Tumblr post. No stink of commerce, no business model, nothing that could even charitably be called content, and best of all, no effort. Peck, peck, send.

When you’ve flown that far from Gutenberg, the only place to travel is back…”

One to One Training At Apple Retail Stores

One to One Training at Apple

I’m not sure how long they’ve been doing this, but I just noticed that Apple offers one to one training at their retail stores.

The program costs $99 per year. For that price you can book one personal training session per week for the entire year.

It actually looks like a pretty good program for anyone new to the Mac, or for people who want to go beyond the basics. They will work at your speed, and offer training on everything from getting started to using Apple’s pro-level apps.

Kung Fu Election

Kung Fu Election

Maybe when it comes time to pick our next president, we should just skip all the campaigning and debates, and just let the candidates go at it… Mortal Kombat style.

We probably won’t see that in reality (yet), but until then you can get a preview of what it would be like by playing a round or two of Kung Fu Election, a Flash game by Atom.
