John Gruber, of Daring Fireball, or 'the Grubs,' as I like to call him, has posted a lengthy review of this year's Macworld. He goes over what he expected to be announced, what was announced, and what he thinks of the whole thing. It is nice to see that we weren't the only people surprised by the In...

Natalie Zee of Coquette has gathered together some of her picks from Macworld that are the best examples of 'girl tech' at Macworld. Since I am not a girl I must admit that I didn't notice any of these products (though some more observant men I am sure did see them). Her round up includes Casauri ba...

When they are not busy creating new iPod cases it seems that the folks at Marware are creating project management software, perhaps so they can more effectively produce iPod cases. Project X bills itself as 'project management for the rest of us,' and it is very slick. I watched a demo at the Marwar...

At Macworld Boston we were bowled over by Cableyoyo, and it seems that they have another trick up their sleeve. What is better than a thin cable management solution? A thin management solution with a suction cup called Pop, of course! The idea is that you would slap this thing on the back of your iP...

I put out a call for your iWeb produced pages and you answered in droves. Now, I'm no HTML/XHTML/CSS expert, but Todd Dominey is, and he isn't pleased with the code that he sees. The code is standards compliant, but it is doing some odd things that just aren't needed, or wanted. If you want the full...

While I was watching the iSale 3 demo I couldn't help but think, 'This is Delicious Library for eBay auctions.' This application allows you to list items on eBay, preview what it will look like, and track the status and the bids on your current auctions in real time. There is also a Dashboard Widge...

The harman/kardon Bridge allows you to integrate your iPod with a variety of harman/kardon audio equipment. You can control playback and see what tracks are playing on compatible gear, and it charges your iPod to boot. The nano and video enabled iPods can be used with this but it does not enable th...

Do you ever wish you can run all of your home entertainment stuff with your Mac and a remote? Well, the fine folks at maccontrol certainly hope that you do. They have two products that are designed to make this happen: the maccontrol connector and the maccontrol remote. The Connector can control but...

I was under the impression that Comic Life would only be bundled with the new iMac. It makes sense, Comic Life is a fun application and the iMac is a the consumer level desktop. However, I have just learned that Comic Life is also being bundled with the Macbook Pros. I'm sure your presentations coul...

Freeverse, that wonderfully wacky game developer and distributor, has just inked a deal to bring Heroes of Might and Magic V to a Mac near you. A release date hasn't been announced as of yet, but I have it on very good authority that the Mac version will have 20% more unicorns than the PC version....

Griffin has released their latest cool little accessory that you didn't know you needed until you heard about it. The SmartShare plugs into any mini-jack, like perhaps an iPod, and allows you to connect two set of headphones. It is basically a splitter, but the nice thing is that each separate head...

Joining Microsoft in the 'we don't want to make a Mac version of this so let's just give someone else's away' school of thought Research in Motion, the makers of Blackberry, will be offering PocketMac for Blackberry as a free download for their customers sometime in February. PocketMac began life as...

SketchUp has teamed up with Google to create a beta plugin for SketchUp (a very cool drafting program). Why is this cool? You can create a building in SketchUp and place that drawing in its context in Google Earth. This is a very powerful concept and I'm sure lots of small Mac shops are rejoicing a...

I also had a chance to get my hands on one of the Macbook Pros today, and I was impressed by the responsiveness of this machine. It is the fastest Mac portable I have ever used, which makes sense but I was impressed by just how much faster it seems. The construction is solid, and the screen is much...

Now that we know Windows will be able to run on the new Intel Macs the question becomes which version of Windows will work with them. Due to the BIOS on the new Macs Windows XP will not run on them yet (we'll have to wait for a hacker to do something about that), however, Windows Vista supports this...

During the keynote Steve gave the usual, 'the iPod is doing great' song and dance, however, he did say that this was Macworld and proceeded to talk about Macs for the majority of the keynote. The San Francisco Chronicle has a story up about the folks how have used the iPod as a 'gateway' drug into t...

Microsoft is showing off a wireless keyboard/mouse combo that they are working on just for the Mac (I'll post a picture later). This is good news for Mac folks since more peripherals are good. However, when Microsoft approached Apple about licensing the Apple logo for the Command key Apple declined....

iWeb, the newest member of the iLife family, has garnered lots of interest from web developers, bloggers, and podcasters. Will it be the end all and be all of web development? Ok, probably not, but will it make creating blogs easier? Sam Kass isn't so sure. He takes iWeb for a spin and comments on i...
