MacDVDRipper Pro 5

I was a fan of RipIt and DVDRemaster a couple of years ago, I had a nice workflow going where I could convert my DVD TV series discs into MP4s for the Apple TV  (We have a lot of discs).  I discovered MDRP since then, and I have been very Read more…

WWDC 2014

Apple had their WWDC keynote today, and announced, well, everything. Their user experience is converging like I couldn’t have imagined before.  Continuity lets you transfer your work from mobile to desktop just by being close to your Mac.  You can answer your phone from your computer.

HEIST

MacHeist is happening again!  Check out http://www.macheist.com and it should make (very little) sense.  It’s a sort of puzzle game with some super software rewards connected with it.  It usually ends up with a software bundle for sale, but not until after a ton of stuff gets given away for Read more…
