Today on TUAW TV Live, the topic is tools and toys. For bloggers, the most popular tools are text editors, and I'll have a live demo of Ulysses III on the show today. Megan Lavey-Heaton wrote up a nice review of this text editor from The Soulmen a few days ago, and I was impressed enough by what she said that I ended up buying Ulysses III and its iOS counterpart Daedalus. The two can be linked via iCloud or Dropbox, and I'm finding both to be useful in my everyday work.
As for the toys, we always have a parade of stuff going through the TUAW Labs at any time, so today's show will most likely feature some items to praise or make fun of. I'm not sure if my normal cohort Shawn "Doc Rock" Boyd will be joining me for the show today, but if he is, I'm sure he'll have a variety of awe-inspiring new goodies to tell us about.
Below, you'll find a Ustream livestream viewer and a chat tool. The chat tool allows you to participate by asking questions or making comments. You'll be watching the show in glorious HD!
If you're driving somewhere and would like to watch TUAW TV Live while you're stuck in traffic, please don't -- keep your eyes on the road! However, if someone else is doing the driving, you can watch the show on your iPhone and join the chat by downloading the free Ustream App. It's a universal app and is wonderful on an iPad, both for viewing and participating in the chat. IRC fans can jump into chat room chat1.ustream.tv, room #tuaw-tv. In addition, the live stream and chat will be available through our Facebook page. Just point your browser here to watch the show and chat with other viewers while you're on Facebook.
We'll start at about 5 PM ET, so if you're seeing a prerecorded show, be sure to refresh your browser until you see the live stream. For those of you who are not able to join us for the live edition, you'll be able to view it later this evening on our TUAW Video YouTube channel and as part of the TUAW TV Live podcast viewable in iTunes or on any of your Apple devices.
