MacSanta has come to town!

MacSanta has come to town!

Posted on: December 13, 2007

Quite a number of our fellow Mac software developers have teamed up to bring a little joy to Mac users this holiday season, in the form of the MacSanta 20% discount! Every day, until December 24, five different developers' wares are featured at 20% off for one day only. SmileOnMyMac is featured today! Besides the daily 20% off specials, you'll find extended savings of 10% off during the rest of the MacSanta festivities. (One of our "smileworthy" picks, SpamSieve is among them!) Thanks to Paul Kafasis of Rogue Amoeba for organizing this great gift for fans of Mac software. SmileOnMyMac's…

Smileworthy: SpamSieve

Smileworthy: SpamSieve

Posted on: September 12, 2007

For the second entry in our new "Smileworthy" category, in which we highlight software we like and use from other software companies, we chose SpamSieve. Like our first entry, LaunchBar, Philip, Greg and I all use this. It is another application we would not want to live without. SpamSieve will keep your email inbox nearly free of unwanted email. It uses Bayesian filtering to determine if an email is spam. And it is smart! It gets better at filtering the longer you use it. If something spammy gets by SpamSieve, you mark it as spam and SpamSieve learns from that.…

Smileworthy: LaunchBar

Smileworthy: LaunchBar

Posted on: August 3, 2007

LaunchBar from Objective Development. All three of us use LaunchBar and none of us can imagine using a Mac without it. With LaunchBar, you can instantly access applications, documents and information from most anywhere on your hard drive. When I think how I used to go to the Finder, open a window, click on the Applications folder, find the application and double-click on it to launch it, my fingers and wrists hurt. With LaunchBar, you hit Command + Space Bar, type a short abbreviation, hit return, and your application opens. LaunchBar learns abbreviations from your choices. The first time you…

Last night, we held our First Annual SmileOnMyMac WWDC Party: From left to right: Philip Goward (SmileOnMyMac), Jean MacDonald (SmileOnMyMac), Ken Case (OmniGroup), Chris Saldanha (Parliant), Jayson Adams (Circus Ponies), Alberto Ricci (Ovolab), and Kevin Hayes (Parliant).

Parliant produces the productive PhoneValet Message Center, which integrates with our PageSender fax software. They're based in Ottawa, Canada. Circus Ponies makes the…

SmileWorthy: CloudPull

SmileWorthy: CloudPull

Posted on: January 27, 2014

We like to use Google Documents for online, real-time collaboration. We use it to take notes when we have meetings. We use it to edit product bullets. We use it to create spreadsheets when doing product planning. Generally, we're thrilled with Google Documents, but we use it for enough important stuff that we worry about our data. Enter CloudPull from Golden Hill Software. CloudPull provides local, hourly backups of our Google Documents. I back up my local machine to both a Time Capsule and via CrashPlan, and with CloudPull all of our Google Documents are included in those backups as…

MacMania: A Sea of Macs

MacMania: A Sea of Macs

Posted on: November 8, 2008

Messina, a port city in Sicily, was a short but sweet stop. I got off the boat just to wander around the town, rather than get on a tour bus. It's tempting to take one of the many excursions offered through the cruise line, but it's great to get out for some exercise and fresh air. I understand the concept of sea legs now. I have felt a small twinge of weirdness from the motion of the boat. Nothing like full-on sea sickness, but just a enough to keep me from wanting to eat or drink too much; on a…

More Haikus for Our 5th Birthday!

More Haikus for Our 5th Birthday!

Posted on: August 6, 2008

Mac Geek Gab wrapped up its poetry contest. Five winners got their choice of SmileOnMyMac applications to celebrate our 5th birthday. I posted the first three winners last week. Here's a couple more. (Also, I have to compliment Bryan Chaffin at Apple Weekly Report. For the birthday giveaways on that show, Bryan used D&D* dice to select the winners! LOL ) Ron Miller wrote this spare gem of a poem: Form meets function here What I can think, I can Mac Beauty still within -- And from Joshua Horne, an epic haiku (is that a contradiction in terms? Oh well...)…
